Jusstine Kenzerr’s career as a psychic began with her own distinctive journey. A 16-year-old Jusstine would have asserted her passion was fashion—what started as an interest in jewelry eventually became a popular clothing company favored by San Francisco club-goers and fashionistas. But even with all of her success, Jusstine knew something was missing.
It was in the process of finding herself spiritually that Jusstine uncovered her psychic abilities. And while she initially tried to deny it, Jusstine eventually appreciated her gift and its ability to help people “move past being stuck” in the challenges so many of us face. “I’ve had challenges. If I didn’t have challenges, I wouldn’t have searched for the answers … that led me to this work and sharing it with others.”
Treat a psychic reading like having sex with a stranger: be very cautious of who you share your energy with.
What inspired you to pursue a career as a psychic?
I never woke up one day and wanted to be a psychic. I became psychic by going down a path to find myself spiritually and after years of spiritual studies, there was an energy I couldn't explain. It was always driving me.
What does your position involve on a daily basis?
I do reading/healing sessions with people in person in Los Angeles and all over the world by phone.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Helping people make positive changes in their life. Anyone can give you answers, which I do, but I also help people move past being stuck—especially when it comes to relationships and broken hearts. There are no words to describe what it feels like to help someone heal.
What challenges keep you awake at night?
Actually, I sleep pretty well these days! But of course I’ve had challenges. If I didn't have challenges, I wouldn't have searched for the answers and healing that led me to this work and sharing it with others.
What is it like to deliver a reading where you give bad news?
It doesn't really work like that. A genuine psychic reading is about inspiring someone who is seeking the truth, healing someone who is sick or providing comfort for someone who is mourning. I don't look at people and see bad things. Unless you are robbing a bank or hurting others and asking about the outcome of that, a session is never about predicting gloom and doom.
Was there ever a moment in your career where you’ve thought, “I can't believe I have this job?" What was it?
One of the hardest parts of my job is other people's expectations. I don't look at you and see a map of your entire future. It's difficult when a young girl reads the reviews on Yelp about me and then comes to a session and thinks I can tell her what time and corner to go stand on to meet her soul mate and when she’ll get married. It doesn't work like that.
What are some of the rules you live by?
Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you.
What qualities does one need to possess to be successful in your line of work?
This is a great question. All psychic ability is communicating with spirits. Spirits are those that have passed over to the other side. But just because someone has passed over doesn't mean they can see all and know all. Just as you wouldn't run up to some stranger in the street and take their advice, you want to be just as cautious here. Doing this work takes a consistent dedication to spiritual practice and commitment to tap into the absolute highest and best truth to be able to clearly translate that information to your client.
What would you say to those who are skeptical of psychics?
When getting a reading, be skeptical; search for proof and evidence. Treat a psychic reading like having sex with a stranger: be very cautious of who you share your energy with. As far as just someone skeptical about psychics in general, it’s not my job to change anyone's mind. I just focus on doing my job and doing it to the best of my ability.
What one piece of advice do you wish you could tell a 21-year-old version of yourself?
Buckle up, girl—it's not going to be an easy ride! But once you get to the other side, it's all going to be worth it.
