What is your full name and title? Ashley McMillen. I am Atlanta’s European Psychic Ashley.

What services do you offer? I offer tarot card readings, but I specialize in psychic readings, reading auras.

How did you learn about your abilities? My mother is psychic. At 16, I developed visions. They were difficult for me to comprehend. My mother helped me understand my visions and energy feelings. I was fully developed by about 20. I use my abilities to help people. I’m a spiritual healer.

What were your visions usually about? Just about people I would see in passing. If they had torment or obstacles, I would pick up on them being withdrawn and sad.

How did you develop your abilities after you learned that they existed? Did you have a mentor? My mother. Psychic abilities are definitely inherited. You can’t learn them or teach yourself.

Why did you choose this as a career? This is something I can’t turn off. I’m not in this for financial reasons. This is a gift to help heal people. I saw people succeeding from my guidance. There are times when I can tune it out, and there are times when it’s very intense.

What makes you a European Psychic? I’m from outside of London. European psychics read more clairvoyantly. You use more energy and fewer tools, like tarot cards, tea leaves and palms. It involves a strong intuitiveness. I prefer to read what I see; that’s auras.

Did you ever consider other professions? Interior design.

What kinds of questions do people usually ask you? Relationship questions. Relationships and love. A lot has to do with careers. They ask questions about financial stability. But most are about relationships and love.

Do you ever have to turn people away?

First, I do a five-minute assessment of the person’s energy. If I can’t read them, if their aura isn’t clear, then I don’t do the reading.

How do you break bad news to people? It’s difficult to tell people bad news. I have to make sure they’re emotionally able to handle it. I ask them if they want to be aware of negativity. If they don’t, I believe the universe will give them the message some other way.

What are your customers like? Do you have regulars? I have a large repeat clientele. I do aura cleansings and meditation, so some people see me on a weekly basis. Some people just drop in.

What do you enjoy most about this job? The guidance I give people, the clarity. They benefit from turning negativity into positivity. The healing in general.

Is there anything else you would like to add? I’m very spiritual. If a person seeks advice with me, then they are being sent to receive a message. These connections, there is a reason, a purpose. This isn’t just something for fun. Through my work, I sometimes help people tune into their own psychic abilities. Lots of people do have them and don’t know.
