‘I talk to dead people as my day job’ – Meet the woman who’s had the gift to speak to spirits since childhood by Emma Jones

Emma Kinsey

When you’re granted a special gift, it’s important to grab it with both hands. That’s what psychic medium Emma Kinsey, 33, did when she realised she could talk to those who’d passed to the other side

Since she was five years old, Emma had known she was different. Her grandad had been admitted to hospital and she was tucked up in bed when she saw him standing next to her.

“You need to let your mum know I’m OK now,” he said warmly. She stood at the top of the stairs and caught her mum coming in from the hospital and told her the good news.

“Grandad was just here! He’s all better now.”

Her mum explained that he had died an hour earlier from lung cancer.

Not frightened, Emma kept seeing mysterious figures appear in front of her, but it wasn’t until her teens that she realised she was different.

“I started seeing faces when I closed my eyes at night,” says Emma. “You are more susceptible when you’re just drifting off to sleep and that’s when I’d hear people shouting ‘Hello?’ and ‘Can anybody hear me?’ It did then start to frighten me, but I didn’t want to tell anyone what was going on in case they didn’t believe me,” she explains.

“It was only when my parents separated and my mum married a psychic medium that I started to accept my gift. He knew I had the same gift as him and helped me open up to it.”

With her family aware of her abilities, Emma’s mother encouraged her to start doing readings, but Emma was nervous to take on the challenge and the responsibility, as it was a massive and frightening leap into the unknown. It was at this time that her stepfather put her in touch with a spiritual development class, aimed to help mediums unleash their full potential.

Emma attended and for the first time ‘felt normal’. Surrounded by people with shared experiences, she began to accept what she was capable of. It was there she began to communicate with of her spirit guide, and started working with him to get messages from those who have passed.

So, despite having a good job in insurance, when Emma’s mother and stepdad decided to move to Spain to set up a Tarot shop, something told Emma she was supposed to go with them.

“The spirits weren’t leaving me alone,” says Emma. “Every night they’d try to talk to me. I felt like they wanted me to pursue my gift, so within a week I’d quit my job and started giving readings at the shop. It came naturally. My stepdad taught me how to protect myself (with words that are a bit like The Lord’s Prayer) and I gave my first reading – it’s something I’ll never forget.”

Her first reading

An old lady called Rosie came through and connected with Emma just by looking at her with the most beautiful smile. Emma told the lady who was having the reading and sure enough it was her grandmother. She passed on all the messages from Rosie and the joy that reading gave to the woman made Emma realise this was the job for her.

“I believe you’re either born with the gift, or you’re not,” explains Emma. “And I knew it was the right path for me. Since then it has just soared. I knew I could help people through grief and that was what spurred me on.”

Of course, with Mediumship comes scepticism, but Emma is adamant the proof is in the pudding.

“The stories speak for themselves. The spirits pass on messages to me and also give me information about the future, which I always pass on, even if it’s a tricky subject. It is never negative, but if there is a warning about a relationship or work situation that comes through I’ll tell the client, because I feel that is more positive in the long run anyway, and you can’t have a reading if you don’t want warts and all,” says Emma.

“Some people get given dates of deaths and that’s something my spirit guides don’t give me. I don’t believe we should know anyway, and it would mess with my head too much to receive that sort of thing.”

Emma gained lots of experience working in Spain, so when she moved back to the UK a few years later, she started giving readings to whoever reached out to her. Some have been particularly memorable.

“I always find fertility issues the most interesting,” she explains. “I went to see a lady for a reading at her house, and I told her I was seeing a baby in May. This was April, and the woman burst into tears. She explained that just that morning she’d been to a specialist who said she wouldn’t be able to conceive. I’m not a doctor, but the spirit world had given me the information and I had to pass it on. Four weeks later I received a text from the lady saying she was pregnant. She said it was a miracle.”

A great comfort

Another occasion when Emma was able to give great comfort to someone was when a mother who had just lost her young son contacted her.

“I received a message from a woman asking how long you should leave it after a loved one has passed before having a reading. As I was replying, explaining it’s best to leave it a few months, a young lad appeared before me, clear as day. He was gorgeous. Well-built and with piercing blue eyes. I knew he was connected to the message. I let him speak, then I called the woman and spoke to her.

“I just knew he was there for her. She understood the letter B as his name was Ben*, and I told her how he’d passed, which was correct. Ben asked me to tell his mum about the yellow flowers at the funeral. She said she was sitting next to them.

“I explained a football connection and passed on a message of, ‘Tell Dad to stop wearing my socks!’ which I later discovered was because Ben’s dad and brother had borrowed his socks to go to the football. Now I am on-call for whenever this family need a reading, free of charge, because I felt we connected that day. The comfort it gave them was absolutely wonderful.”

Mediumship is a £100-million industry in the UK, but Emma isn’t in it for the money.

“A lot of the time I am brought to people by chance, and although I’m lucky enough to

What makes graveyards scary? Why graveyards are scary?

Under the wat­chful gaze of crumbling saints and baby-f­aced cherubs, you hurry down a path lined with mausoleums. Eventually, you pass crops of headstones glinting in the moonlight, each engraved with the CliffsNotes version of the dead person’s life. You practically run past sunken graves and dying flowers, hoping upon hope that the sound you hear is just the wind and trying to shake the feeling that something is following close on your heels.

All right, so maybe you’ve never taken a midnight shortcut through the local cemetery. But if you have ever set foot in a graveyard, you’ve likely felt a hint of the fear and uneasiness that is their legacy. Maybe you were attending a family funeral, touring historic graveyards or simply fleeing flying silver spheres and hooded dwarves.

­Whatever your reason for strolling among the tombstones, you probably felt something noteworthy about the experience — something different from all the other spaces and places that fill our lives. After all, graveyards are the final resting place for many of our dead. People say their last goodbyes there, sometimes returning year after year to leave flowers or say a few words.

No matter where you travel in the world, cemeteries frequently are silent and solemn settings. Whether the grounds are finely manicured or left to the weeds, graveyards exist as the place where the living contemplate the mysteries, tra­umas and heartbreaks associated with death.

­But why are so many people afraid of graveyards? Is it the thought of all those decaying bodies under the dirt or the idea of a bony arm emerging from the soil to grab your ankle and pull you into the underworld ? Or is it something deeper? On the next page, we’ll travel to a place full of dark secrets and hidden skeletons: the human brain.

What do cemeteries symbolize?

Cats often receive a bum rap for hanging out in cemeteries, but can we really blame them? After all, graveyards offer great feline amenities: choice napping spots, scratching trees and a generous selection of small animals to prey on. What would an 8-pound (3.6-kg) tabby want with your grandfather’s soul when there are so many squirrels around?

­To cats, graveyards may just be another place to sleep away the afternoon, but to humans, they represent the mystery and the outrage of mortality. Like it or not, we’re all going to die. You may think you’ve accepted that fact, but it’s an issue humanity has struggled with for millennia. Unable to avoid it, we’ve tried to figure out what lies beyond its
