Many of us may dream of ditching our current jobs and doing something new. Some of us might even make that happen, joining The Great Resignation.

But few will make a career change quite as dramatic as single mum Calista Macgillivray, 40, who went from a cancer research scientist to a psychic energy healer.

After becoming disillusioned with her work, in 2006 Calista ditched the lab to study reiki.

She now specialises in using ‘angel and unicorn energy’, and has shared her methods with over 1,000 teachers worldwide.

‘I think people are surprised when I tell them I was a scientist,’ she said.

‘But I think it also makes them more open to my techniques.

‘I never believe in anything I don’t experience. But I have experienced angels and unicorns and so have the people in my sessions. It’s really amazing.’

Growing up in rural Scotland, Calista claims to have regularly communed with spirits and angels as a child, but became ‘cynical’ as a teenager.

‘I had my first angel experience when I was six years old,’ she said.

‘I saw the angels physically come towards me, but I didn’t really understand it.

‘I saw a spirit at my grandmother’s house. He just stood there and didn’t say anything.’

Experiences of bullying as a teen made her lose her faith, and she threw herself into science.

In 2002 Calista got her honours degree in medical biotechnology, then went on to work with pharmaceutical companies as a cancer researcher.

She ‘really loved’ her job, but when she began taking a reiki energy healing course in 2006, the mum-of-three realised she wanted more from life.

‘I felt like I could help another person more in a short session of reiki than I could being this small cog in a big pharmaceutical company,’ said Calista.

She left her research job for a pharmaceutical company in February 2006, and studied to become a ‘master teacher’ in reiki alongside earning a diploma in herbal medicine.

She experienced judgement and rejection from her peers, but was certain she was on the right path when she ‘saw angels’ while meditating.

Then in 2006, when she was running her own holistic therapy company, Calista says she saw a unicorn for the first time.

‘When I was running my herbal medicine company I had a line of soaps and I wanted to create a unicorn soap,’ she said.

‘I literally sat down one day and said, “If I have unicorn guides please come forward and show me”.

‘I wasn’t sure if they existed, but I wanted to see if they were real.

‘Then these two massive big, beautiful unicorns came forward. They basically harmonised my energy to theirs.

‘It was beautiful and that’s when I started to bring unicorns into my meditation.’

After spending three years communicating daily with angels and unicorns, Calista created her own take on angel and unicorn healing in 2009 – a type of energy treatment that involves asking for guidance from the spiritual entities.

She claims that angels gave her messages that were ‘so accurate and true’.

‘They guided me to clients,’ said Calista, who has now trademarked Unicorn Healing. ‘They also gave me strong guidance to put myself forward for opportunities that saw me win my shop, giving me a platform to teach.

‘They also guided me to America, I kept seeing Maine written everywhere. When I left and travelled to Maine I made incredible connections.

‘They started communing with me during my reiki sessions, so I would ask my client if we could do angel healing for their session instead.

‘From there, I just worked alongside the angels to create this therapy system.

‘I think what energy medicine does is it goes straight to the root issue.

‘Angels tend to work with us and send us messages. They help us to be more caring and compassionate and just to see the lighter side of life.’

The mum insists that unicorns are very much real, noting that as a trained scientist, she doesn’t believe anything unless she has experienced it.

But Calista notes that unicorns only show themselves to certain people – so that explains why we haven’t seen one.

She said: ‘Unicorns have a higher, more expansive vibration than we do. They often want to connect with people who are on their spiritual path.

‘Unicorns are for the rebels and the change makers.’

Since 2012, Calista has expanded her business, with teachers around the world using her meditation techniques.

‘I think a lot of people in the spiritual world thought that the world was going to end in 2012, as there were a lot of books prophesising this,’ she said.

‘But I guess we did change, we changed vibration. A lot of people woke up spiritually.

‘Now, angel and Unicorn Healing is taught over six continents and we’ve got over 1,000 practitioners worldwide.

‘I’m now signed with the biggest spiritual publishers and have written two best selling books.’

Despite this success, Calista does often come up against disbelief and mocking, but she doesn’t care.

‘I don’t judge people and I hope that they don’t judge me,’ she added.

‘If someone doesn’t believe in what I do, I don’t think it’s any of my business.’
