John De Freitas, local owner of Van Isle Mystic, talks of gaining psychic momentum through tarot and aura readings, all the while having discovered that his professional past in counselling helped tune him toward his highest power.
“My husband, Scott De Freitas and I met over twenty-one years ago in Toronto through mutual friends. We had travelled in the same circles but didn’t know one another very well, so I read his tarot cards one day. It was really interesting. I told him that he would be going back to a place that he used to live, with the mountains and the ocean and I told him that he would meet his soulmate. About two or three months later I found myself driving across the country with Scott, who is now my husband. It was very surreal. I had no clue that I was the soulmate in his tarot reading,” De Freitas said.
