Mary Barrett wished she could be like a fortune teller she used to visit, not knowing she possessed the same abilities. Barrett realized she
was a psychic medium, among other things, in her late 30s but has had psychic premonitions for as long as she can remember. She has been a
professional psychic medium for about 20 years.
“One thing that I do feel is very important for any psychic/medium is confirmation,” Barrett said, adding that a good psychic medium should not have to ask any questions. Barrett admits that her rates are
a bit higher than some, but it is because she gives her clients
what they need, and is not out to scam them.
About two years ago, an Oklahoma client called Barrett to help locate her missing granddaughter. Barrett communicated with the woman over the phone and described an area to her and the police of where the granddaughter was located. “It feels really good when you can sit there and you can help a person,” she said.
Barrett said she went to Oklahoma to help her client and the police find the missing girl. “She did contribute a little bit,” Wagoner, Oklahoma, Police Detective Mike Hammons said. "She just kind of kept us informed." Barrett shared details with the police department, some of which they already knew or suspected, Hammons said. “She said that (the girl) was out by the lake, which is where she was found – out by the lake,” Hammons said.
After being missing for about a month, someone called in a tip saying they saw a light on in an empty house. The Wagoner County Sheriff's Department sent a deputy to the house and found the girl, Hammons noted.

Everyone has some type of intuition, but it will only go as far as God allows, Barrett said. She believes God gave her gifts because He trusts her to help people. “I’m a Christian; I believe in God, I believe in Jesus, and I always have,” she said, noting that she does not cast spells or practice “black magic.”
Actress Tonja Walker met Barrett online a few years ago and they have had a relationship ever since. “She was a fan of mine and she felt she had good advice for me,” Walker said. “She offered me a free reading in order to help me, and to help me believe in her talent.” Walker was skeptical at first but ended up feeling very satisfied, supported and hopeful after talking with Barrett. “I think Mary is very gifted and she is a bright woman with a huge
heart. I am grateful to Mary for her help and guidance,” Walker said.
Once she found out about her gifts, Barrett said she would get “normal” jobs and always end up losing them and going back to being a professional psychic medium. Eventually, she gave up trying and listened to God.
Barrett has many gifts, but her most popular service is as a psychic medium and helping people connect with loved ones who have passed on. Another popular service she provides is helping people realize who they were in a past life through hypnosis. Barrett will hypnotize her client and ask questions to figure out “who they were before they were who they were,” she said.
The life of a Psychic Medium
Steven Lebowitz Nov 8, 2013
The 11th edition of Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend wrapped up at the Orlando Doubletree at the Entrance to Universal and it was one of their best years on record.
There were plenty of great seminars and events all weekend.
Those who went to see the psychic medium show with Mary Barrett got a few surprises. One young woman who identified herself as "Faye" and came all the way from England to attend her first Spooky Empire event ever
was very impressed by Ms. Barrett.
