It's tough growing up as a psychic
DEB Webber has been seeing spirits since she was three.
“As a three-year-old I didn’t think about it, I just did it. The first spirit I saw was my mother washing a lady who had passed over. I remember it so well this woman smiled and put her hand on her shoulder and disappeared,” Ms Webber said.
While Webber has since embraced her ability and made a career out of it, it was wasn’t always easy growing up with her abilities.
“It was awful,” she said.
“I was different from the other kids. I was called a liar, dumb, stupid; and this was from my brothers and sisters. And I felt dumb as a kid because I was constantly being told I was.”
As one of the psychics in the TV show Sensing Murder, and having her own column in Woman’s Day, Webber has built up quiet a fan base but she is not without her critics.
“Ita Buttrose once told me ‘never ever read anything anybody writes about you on the negative side of things because if we all did we’d be nuts’,” said Ms Webber.
“I don’t think you should judge anything in life, especially what you don’t understand. Sceptics are just people who don’t understand.”
Deb Webber’s next show, Love of Oneness, is on at The Great Western Hotel in Rockhampton on Thursday.
