The fortune teller, who claims to be able to connect with loved ones and pets, dead or alive, said “miracles happen” when people communicate through love.
Susan Allen, 60, who lives in Los Angeles, said she was born with a gift that allowed her to communicate with animals, including dogs, cats and horses, at the age of two.
She explained that she feels “very sensitive” around animals and remembers a deep bond with a stray cat that appeared in her Brooklyn garden when she was five.
Susan studied mediumship and mysticism as a teenager and said she had a life-changing spiritual experience in her twenties when her recently deceased mother “saved (her) life from the other side” ordering her to go to the hospital because Susan unknowingly had an ectopic pregnancy and internal bleeding.
It wasn’t until her forties that Susan truly embraced her gift and began using it to help other people connect with loved ones who had died.
Now describing herself as a proof psychic, animal communicator and healer, she has over 32,000 followers on Instagram.
“I didn’t believe it because I was born that way; I didn’t quite believe it, said Susan.
“I was talking to animals as early as two, three, four years old – it was a way for me to feel better and calm down, because I was a very nervous, empathetic child with high feelings.”
Susan explained that she “felt more comfortable with pets” in her youth and communicated with animals through love, prayer and meditation, adding that when she started taking readings from pets, “very subtle things about dead people would also come up.” “.
She said these messages were “so wonderful and subtle” that allowed her to recognize that she could connect with animals and people at their soul level.
Susan says that “everyone has this ability”, but they need to open their hearts.
“The most powerful emotions are the language of love, and that’s what connects us to the spirit world – joy, love and wonder,” she explained.
“Most of us are actually (are) in this 3D world, but if you can suspend disbelief and get into your soul and heart… miracles happen.
“The heart is the essence of light and who you are, and that is what connects you to your deceased loved ones who are in spirit.
“When you love them so much, that’s the energy that connects you – it’s the most powerful (emotion) and even surpasses fear and anger; it will crush everything in you.
“Love will crush all negativity.”
Susan said the power of love led her to a life-changing experience when she was 26 – six months after the death of her mother Theresa, to whom she was very close.
Susan said she felt very bad after her mother died, and when she started to fall asleep one day after taking painkillers, she heard Theresa screaming loudly, saying, “Go to the ER, go to the ER.”
After going to the hospital, Susan said she later discovered she had an ectopic pregnancy which caused internal bleeding and was “close to death”.
She continued: “(Doctors) gave me last rites, there was an inner meeting and I was cold and they were right. (My mom) saved my life from the other side.
“She was really there for me, but it never registered. I just thought it was a one time thing.
“I was going through life with other things like everyone else – we work, trying to pay the rent – and it wasn’t until I moved to California from New York… (I started helping people). “
After that, Susan had various jobs, including modeling for Ford, working in real estate and as an art dealer, but she continued to read spiritual content and expand her knowledge.
She began working with horses in Malibu in her 30s – massaging, feeding and brushing them – and said it “really helped (her) get better.”
She explained that she developed a strong bond with one horse named Leo who “started saying (her) things” including that he no longer wanted to work, his hind legs hurt and he was in pain.
Susan said Leo taught her how to heal, and after noticing the power of her abilities and how she could help people, she took an animal communication class and “something kicked in.”
This led to her starting a company in her 40s, now called Susan Allen Medium, and says she has helped countless clients around the world connect with loved ones and pets.
“The most amazing gift is helping someone heal, teaching and mentoring them,” explained Susan.
“It really was deeply healing for me.”
Susan said it’s too hard to remember all the readings she’s taken, but she clearly remembers one session with a woman where the topic of “fruitcakes” came up.
She said: “I read it last Christmas. It was on the phone, not on Zoom, and I said, “Your mom is here talking about fruitcakes.” Dead silence.
“I don’t see her crying, but then she starts laughing.
“I’m in a mystical state… and she says, ‘I have to tell you what happened.’
“She said, ‘My mum was known for her fruit cakes… we were in my mum’s basement and we pulled a fruit cake out of the freezer – it must have been 30 years old and it still tasted good.’
“And that’s what she was laughing at, and it was wonderful.”
Susan recalls another experience when she was conducting a group video call and a young boy waited until the end of the session to ask her for a message from his grandfather.
She said she had correctly named the boy’s great-grandfather, but the boy, who was accompanied by his mother during the interview, stressed that he “just needed a message from” his grandfather because he was being bullied at school.
She had to pause for a few minutes, but then a clear picture flashed through her mind.
She said, “Grandpa showed me how to be on a pitcher’s mound and throw a baseball … and my mom cried and said, ‘My dad was a semi-professional baseball player.’
“Then the little boy asks, ‘What does my grandpa say about bullying? and I said in a granddaddy tone ‘knock ’em one out’ and my mum burst into tears and said ‘that’s exactly what my dad would say'”.
Susan said it’s amazing to see other people grow and heal through her work, and is grateful for the positive feedback and testimonials from her clients.
While some people may be skeptical of her work, she has said that she doesn’t care because she does what “(she) was born to do”.
“I’m not here to prove anything to anyone,” Susan said.
“I do what I love to do, which I feel I was born to do, (even though) it took me forever to figure it out.
“To trust myself enough to help people and do that, I call myself a psychic.”
