The Power of the mind

JOE Power says he may share a home city of Liverpool with fellow celebrity medium Derek Acorah, but that is where the similarity ends.

Joe brings his brand new Psychic Night Special to Motherwell Concert Hall on Friday, March 1, as he communicates to the spirit world and also mind power to deliver mind messages.

He said: “I take my job as a medium very seriously as I feel it is a responsibility to connect people with their loved ones without any additional drama.

“Someone like Derek Acorah has his way of working and that’s fine, but I’m not like him and nor would I want to be, you won’t see me getting ‘possessed’ or any of that sort of stuff on stage.

“I much prefer to interact with people and I would just encourage them to come to one of my shows and decide for themselves about my powers.”

Joe says he was aware of his powers from a young age, but tried to keep them hidden until his brother was murdered.

He said: “I grew up in a Catholic household so that sort of thig was hardly encouraged, in fact I remember getting into trouble if I said I’d had a vision or received a spiritual visitor.

“My gran’s sister Aunt Emily had the gift and I think she may have helped pass it on just before she died, but by and large I tried to ignore it.

“However when my brother was murdered and he came to me I knew I had to accept it and use it to help other people.”

Joe has worked with celebrities such as David Essex, Coleen Rooney, Margi Clarke, Crissy Rock, gold medallist boxer Tom Stalker and Kerry Katona, appeared on TV in the UK, Ireland and America.

However, says he is much happier touring the country and sharing his gift with ordinary people.

Joe said: “Working with the celebrities and being on television is good, but to be honest it’s not what I enjoy doing most.

“I’ve been in Motherwell before and got a wonderful welcome and touring the country in towns big and small and passing on messages from the spirit world to those who need them gives me far more satisfaction.

“There are so many fake psychics out there who lead people on, I have been honing my skills for nearly 15 years, and my students will you, it can take that long, so I promise to never deceive anyone.”

The show starts at 7.30pm with tickets costing £16 (£15 concessions) available from the box office on 01698 403120 or visit {http://www.northlanarkshire.gov.uk/entertainment|NLC Entertainment|NLCe).

For something completely different the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers present their latest show ‘The Way of the Drum’ on Wednesday, February 27, in Airdrie Town Hall.

The shows starts at 7.30pm and tickets costing £13 (£8 concession) from the same places.
