I first met my psychic guide 'Richi Who' (AKA Richard Philippe) in 1986 when I had moved to Magnetic Island in Queensland. Richi was leading a mystical, monkish, life at the time. He was living alone while caretaking the solitary house at Arthur Bay for its owner, the late, Sid Ward.
I do not now recall how we first met, but his mystic persona drew me close. Richi became an integral part of my own spiritual initiation and was to become my psychic guide. His late-night mystic sessions on Arthur Bay (one even being reported on the TV show Ripley’s Believe It Or Not) filled my life with wonder while opening the doors to other worlds.
Richi later became the first psychic reader I retained at my Ancient Wisdom bookshop and we stayed friends ever since.
I fondly remember the day that Richard met Linda in my shop Ancient Wisdom. They later married, moved south to the Sunshine Coast and lived happily ever after.
Sadly Richi Who passed away unexpectedly in 2013 while on holiday in Austria. At Linda’s request I have welcomed the integration of his web site’s content into my own here at Psychic-Junkie.com. This will keep his wisdom alive for your benefit and his memory alive for me and his many loving friends.
“I’m Australian by birth and inclination, although after a long life of contact with diverse cultures, I hope I can resonate with your hopes and aspirations regardless of your background. My initial education is in the fields of electronics engineering, finally specialising in computing, systems analysis and establishing my own software house. It was in the computing field during management training courses that I came to the realisation that I knew very little about people - including myself! So in a sense it was back to square one. From basic psychology courses to Gestalt courses to Behaviour modification courses to Self-Awareness courses, I became a Personal Development junkie.
The second half of my life has been spent studying spiritual/human development courses and material, and qualifying as an instructor, facilitator or counsellor for most methods and techniques. The knowledge and experience I have gained is on two levels: First - Self-discovery and awareness, because it is only from my own growth and experience that I can claim credibility in personal growth. Second - Through teaching and counselling others and observing their personal growth and the effectiveness of the various techniques. Now that I have "retired", it is a case of having "been there - done that", during what has been a lifetime of experience, travel and adventure. The point is, the background for my writing has been a practical experience of personal development and growth. I write also as a retired professional Clairvoyant and Mystic of many years’ experience, including reading, consulting and conducting awareness groups. My studies in the field encompass virtually all areas of the metaphysical spectrum. My wish here is to be your guide on your quest to a greater awareness in the richness of life.”
