Rita’s Journey

Dambulla, Sri Lanka ©Rita Minassian

Natural born psychic medium, Rita MINASSIAN grew up in France. She started to use her abilities at the age of 5, first by seeing Auras around people (electro-magnetic field surrounding all beings) and by perceiving people’s true nature and feelings using her early clairvoyant and empathic abilities unknowingly.

Spirit guides and passed ones would also start to manifest to her at the age of 8, with whom she would play hide and seek. They would manifest their presence by telepathic communication or through beautiful scents around. She would keep secret the development of what she thought a «normal» perception for everyone though. As a teenager, the books of Victor Hugo and Allan KARDEC about their connection to the spirit worlds, and later, Dr Raymond MOODY and Dr Elisabeth KUBLER-ROSS’s on NDE (Near Death Experience), opened a world of new possibilities, validated her perceptions of other realities. She would then experience a various range of psychic tools like precognition, lucid dreaming (…).

In 2000, she started to get messages via automatic writing and TCI technique. As she would upgrade her psychic abilities by studying traditional and far Eastern philosophies, it was time for university. After a bachelor’s degree in marketing and business management, and a University degree in history of arts, she built her professional career in corporate and industrial companies (please check LinkedIn profile).

In 2002, she decided to merge her skills and her love of art by organising art fairs as a PR and global communication manager. Her psychic abilities naturally led her to provide intuitive information to  her corporate coworkers. At first, it seemed challenging to interact with people evolving in practical spheres, far from “esoteric” considerations. But people would actually be very open to share their own experience with the subtle realms.

In 2005, intuitive messages to be shared would manifest on a daily basis, she realized then that her true calling was to merge her intuitive skills and her professional life.

She started to give readings on a professional basis as a medium and workshop facilitator and founded the AKASHA INSTITUTE in France, an organization dedicated to explore unexplained phenomenon, facilitate the improvement of people’s extra-sensorial perceptions and promote holistic living and mindfulness before it becomes the trend. Rita strongly believes that «paranormal» is normal, so everyone is intuitive by nature. Through time, her sensitivity to the surrounding environment and to what she defines as the «memory of the walls» of buildings, hotels around the world or private spaces, that she connects to with her inner compass, led her to create a unique method of interior design, the Space Energy Balance © .

Her multicultural background and her globetrotter nature have enabled her to acquire a vast knowledge in terms of cultural diversity and a better understanding of human psychology, foreign traditions and beliefs. From Northern America to Australia, her spiritual journey lead her in mystical places where she could experience holistic medicine in China, South East Asia and India (where she has organized group retreats several times), connect to the Divine feminine energies in Turkey, Egypt, Israel and Iran with the Zoroastrian culture.

In 2009, during her third trip to India and in most amazing series of synchronicities, she followed the teachings of His Holiness the 14th DalaÏ Lama during an initiatory travel to Dharamsala-Himalayas, where his Holiness and the Tibetan government in exile reside. The topic of the teachings, “Competition and Compassion”, became a landmark on her professional path.

The same year, after experiencing an outstanding accurate analysis of her astrological birth chart by an experienced 80 years old buddhist astrologer in Paris, educated by her doctor and astrologer father, she decided to learn the language of the stars. Both Jungian psychological and karmic approaches are part of her training in France, Switzerland and London at the Center for Psychological Astrology (CPA), founded by Liz GREENE.

Based on her deep interest of the latest research in neurosciences and  quantum physics, particularly HEISENBERG’s work, such as contemporary physicists like Rupert SHELDRAKE, Michio KAKU among others, she believes microcosm and macrocosm are intertwined and evolve in an ongoing growth process that science will completely unveil one day.

Her core philosophy of life is to apply Mahatma Gandhi’s saying and “Be the change you want to see in the world ”. When the phenomenon of projection is understood, it ultimately leads everyone to be their own master and “miraculously” co-create the reality they crave for, for themselves and for humanity at large, as we’re all interconnected.

Rita is known as the “rational medium”, with a down to earth approach. She foresees tangible events like the terror attacks in France and Belgium in 2015-2016, as well as the election of Donald J. Trump in 2016. She is the author of Rita’s Spiritual Blog and writes for several international magazines. She’s been a yoga practitioner for over a decade and a licensed Reiki Usui master since 2006.
