At the age of 9, Areana Brooks started seeing things that other people could not. Strange shadows, bright light, and finally, dead people. To her, abnormality is normal. Now, at age 13, Ari has embraced her gift and has since become a Light Worker, or someone who sends earth-bound spirits to “the light.”
I found Ari by sheer luck. She was the perfect subject, willing to tell her story, highly impacted by what she sees and does, and wise beyond her years. Her sister, Sam, also has psychic abilities and it has been a wonderful journey thus far to document their experiences as child psychics. It’s a tough subject because so few people believe in it and my own beliefs were brought into question. But I loved these girls and I loved the subject matter, the unknown, and the never ending questions.
