I have another wonderful person to share with you today, her name is Annette Martin.
1. Annette what type of psychic ability do you have?
I am a Psychic Detective, Medical Intuitive and Medium. When I discovered my gifts at age seven I said that if I had to do this then I had to do everything. And guess what, I can! By being able to do all of these, one that stands out the most is that of Psychometry. I use this in all of my police cases, whether it is a missing person, trying to find the assailant, or finding something that is lost.
Psychometry: is the process or art of interpreting the psychic energy that is left and contained in objects. You see everything that we touch we leave an invisible fingerprint. It is sometimes referred to as "psychic touch," it is the ability to read an object's history or the history of those who may have handled it. While it deals most often with the past, it may often reflect present states as well.
The word psychic is the synonym for sensitive. A person who is psychic can describe paranormal events and have abilities that cannot be explained in terms of established physical principles.
These are different aspects of my work
Clairvoyance: To have lucid mental perceptions and keen insights about people and life situations and to have clear visual mental images, pictures, to "see" auras and other psychic phenomena.
Dowsing: To be able to find underground water and/or underground minerals. Also use Dowsing when I lecture and do medical diagnosing.
Clairsentience - The ability to clearly feel yours and/or another's emotions and sensations.
Being a Medium: Being able to see and speak to ghosts, also being able to discern between a Haunting or what I call an impression which are "recordings or video's" of past events that are repetitiously "replayed" and "decoded" by those sensitive enough to perceive them.
Clairaudience (data received as sound) which I do on the radio and TV shows.
Intuition, ability of knowing, or the knowledge obtained, without conscious recourse or reasoning, which I do everyday in my practice of being a psychic.
AUTOMATIC WRITING or AUTOMATIC ART - To freely channel your higher self or another soul's words, music, or art without the interruptive interference of the mind.
ESP - Extrasensory perception (ESP) is the knowledge of external objects or events without the aid of the senses.
Precognition - Pre-knowing; where nondeductible information about a future event is acquired.
Prediction - To be able to predict future events before they occur.
Remote Viewing (RV) - Ability to access distant or shielded information primarily of visual character, such as natural or structural features, via an unknown mental process. RV can include other sensory modes, such as feelings, motion, or sound. Some individuals associate specific approaches, or protocols, with RV. Other similar terms: remote perception, enhanced perception, extrasensory perception (ESP).
Telepathy - To know what others are thinking as if to hear thoughts in your head. Thought transference including the sending and receiving of thoughts.
2. Are their psychics in your family?
I have what I call, my double whammy! My grandmother, on my mothers side was extremely clairvoyant and would go to a special restaurant every Friday night and do readings for people with an old deck of poker cards.
My grandmother’s sister, on my father’s side was a clairvoyant nun, who predicted many things include the assassination of President Carno of France. She later left the nunnery and became a doctor due to all the medical diagnosing she was doing.
3. Do you have children that are psychic?
Yes, I have two boys who are very intuitive, one could do readings professionally but choose not to do that and the other is a musician who uses his intuition with his music.
4. Do you know whether you've been a psychic in previous lifetimes?
Yes, I have seen one life time of being very intuitive during the time of Cleopatra, one during the time of Atlantis and last of all of being Joan of Arc.
5. I see that you do have two websites, http://www.annette-martin.com and http://www.closure4u.com
6.On your website you state you are a Psychic Detective, Medical Intuitive, ghost Buster and author. Can you explain what you do as a psychic detective?
Either the family contacts me or the police dept. with a case that they are having trouble with solving. I only work directly with the police on cases, with the families permission. The information that has been brought through in the session goes directly back to the police Detective in charge of the case. If he decides to let the family know what I have come up with then that is his responsibility. Generally the police will hold the information while they are checking out where I have led them. It is very dangerous to do the readings directly for the family, as it could be that a family member is involved in the case or someone close to them. We do not want family members going after these people on their own and perhaps causing another murder!
When I work, the process is to always start with White Light [for protection]. With my eyes closed and holding a photograph of the victim or missing person, I will take in three deep breaths. Within a few moments I can then move into the energy of the missing person or victim. I will immediately psychically go to the scene where the victim was last seen. And I'll see her or him, feel the emotions, see what is happening to that person. It's like stepping into a movie. Then, at some point I usually see the perpetrator come into the scene. And I'll begin to feel his emotions, then their voices will become audible and I am hearing conversations going back and forth between the victim and the assailant. All of this is being said out loud, so that the Detective can hear what I am experiencing and also ask questions as we move along. There are times when I also become the observer, especially when it is getting near the actual murder.
The most important aspects of this are the abilities that I have to be able to do the medical diagnosis. I can go into the body of the assailant or the victim and see scars and medical conditions or medication that they are taking. This is very helpful to the police as they can track the medicine through pharmacies and doctors. My observation on this aspect has been about 95% accurate.
I also use maps to track the assailant to see perhaps where he has put the body or what direction he or she went in after the murder. I use my hands to track him or her while dowsing the maps.
7. As a medical intuitive, are you able to see the health of a person as it is now, and in the future?
Yes, I see what is going on in the present and what the prognosis or possible genetic pre-disposition is in that body.
8. There is a book on your website about you called Gift of the White Light, can you explain what is The White Light?
At a tender young age I was told by my guide, to always use the White Light. Well, being a good girl, I have always followed that suggestion and use it daily in my life and in my practice.
“White light is pure energy which is protectiveness.” Visualized white light as similar to full spectrum light. Merge all colors together in the physical world and you get white light. Other colors, simply don’t work as well. “Put the white light in the aura and keep it there all the time.” Click here to buy this book.
9. Also on your website I see another book called Discovering your psychic world, Can a person become psychic by reading how to, or all we all born psychic?
Here is a review by a well-know magazine in San Francisco, CA.
"Annette Martin draws upon a life time of rich experience as an acclaimed psychic and teacher to offer a very readable Primmer on Psychic Development. Discovering Your Psychic World is for the beginner as well as the advanced student. It leads one very logically from beginning exercises to more "in depth" techniques to unlock that part of one's subconscious mind that is usually "off limits." "I feel that Ms. Martin is giving us an invaluable gift . . . the development of our intuition, clairvoyance, precognition, ability to heal ourselves and others, and more, which all lead to an enriching of our lives. Her book is very easy to understand as well as particularly interesting as she illustrates each chapter with case history's, verbatim instructions and vignettes from her own life.

10. You do psychic readings by phone or in your office, Do you find it easier to do them face to face?
It doesn’t matter whether they are in front of me or on the phone. I do prefer the client to be in my office if I am doing a medical diagnosing. As I can talk with them and counsel them face to face in a more intimate and loving way.
11. You also can do a reading with someone's photo, can you explain how you do this?
This is the process called Psychometry, all of my phone readings around the world are done this way, as well as the animal readings. I hold the photo in my palms and immediately begin to pick up information from the energy that has been left on the photo. It’s like an invisible fingerprint. Many times clients in the office bring photo’s of the children or husband or wife and I can give them as accurate a reading as I do with them sitting across from me holding the photo’s. It doesn’t matter how old the photo is either, the energy print is still there.
12. I noticed the address of your address, is that in the same building as another famous psychic, Sylvia Browne?
No, we are not in the same building, but for the past 20 years Sylvia and I have been about 4 blocks away from each other. Interesting, isn’t it?
13. As a Psychic Detective have you been asked to find missing children?
Yes, I have found some missing children.
14. Can you give and encouraging words, or advice to those that want to develop their psychic abilities?
Because everyone has a "psychic side" , which deals with our right brain, to himself or herself, you can learn to be more intuitive. There are steps you can take, classes you can attend (check out your local area Learning Annex for classes) and about a billion wonderful books you can read to assist your development. And of course, my book, Discovering Your Psychic World, that is being used by many of the metaphysical books stores around the country in their classes, because it works. I also recommend my mediation CD’s, “Peaceful White Light”, with music by Steven Halpern. By using the CD meditations and learning to use the White Light it will be much easier to not try to see information but allow it to come to you. You need to learn to trust and have faith in what you know but have no logical explanation for.
The more and more you attempt to connect; the easier it will become. With time, and practice it simply becomes instinctual.
Whether you realize it or not, you are being guided and assisted everyday by your angels, guides, Goddess, Divine spirit -- whatever you prefer to call it. Have the courage to trust in yourself and your intuition. You won't go wrong.
Thank you Annette, this has been an extreme pleasure. Can I use the photo of you on your website for this interview and photos of your two books?
May the White Light Be With You,
