Intuitive Readings

Do you want more magic in your life?

David Swing - Faerie Seer, Psychic, Intuitive, Past Life ReadingsI offer psychic and intuitive spiritual counseling to help you discover new ways to bring more joy, magic and harmony into your life.  I do my best to provide useful and compassionate information to help you move forward along your life path.

My name is David, sometimes also known as Merlin.  I am clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient, which allows me to see, hear, and speak with your spirit guides, faeries, angels, devas, spirits and other non-physical beings.

I typically begin a reading by consulting the runes, which act as stepping stones to help me see which areas in your life require the most focus. Readings are usually centered on the issues you are facing now, but you may ask questions about previous events or past lives if you wish.

I have been in contact with faeries for many years, and I refer to myself as a faerie seer.  I am assisted during readings by my spirit guide, a female Gnome elder.  Some individuals who schedule a reading have an interest in faeries, but others just want authentic information about what is happening in their life, and that is what I try to provide in each reading.

I do also offer faerie workshops for large or small groups and faerie spirit investigation services for homes, businesses and organizations. I am the author of two books about faeries, Gnomes in the Garden and The Celtic Owl, available through and other retailers.

I am located in Weaverville, just a 15-minute drive from downtown Asheville, NC, in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where I offer email, phone and in-person consultations. I am a progressive, open-minded, and nature-loving Celtic Christian, who honors each individual’s own spiritual and religious beliefs. Please visit the Intuitive page to schedule a reading or the Faerie page to schedule a workshop or faerie spirit investigation session.


David Swing - Faerie Seer, Psychic, Intuitive, Past Life ReadingsMy intuitive and psychic abilities appeared when I was still a young boy. At that time my bedroom was located in the basement of a very haunted house in Rock Springs, Wyoming. The windows were half buried in the earth, and so many spirits visited me at night that I could barely sleep at all. They knew I could see and hear them, so they wanted to talk to me and ask me to pass along messages. They weren’t particularly polite ghosts, so they would all try to talk at the same time. As a young boy, I was incapable of passing along their messages to anyone who would have listened, so I would often escape from my room and roam the prairie beneath the night sky to avoid their constant company.

It was at that very difficult time in my life that a group of faeries first began to make themselves known to me in an effort to help me deal with the many ghostly visitors. After a particularly frightening ghostly visitation, I somehow managed to shut down my psychic abilities so much that I was able to block out the spirits, but in so doing, I also lost contact with my faerie companions.

Some years after I met and married my wife, I began to open up to the world of spirit once more, and that is when these fair folk again made themselves known to me. These same members of the Celtic faerie tribes have been with me now for many years and continue to help me grow spiritually. They refer to me as Merlin, and I feel very blessed to have them in my life.

Gnome ElderOne of these faeries, a female gnome elder, has agreed to assist with intuitive counseling sessions, although other fair folk may also step in if needed. Since gnomes typically live for thousands and thousands of years, a gnome elder is one who has gained much wisdom over a very long period of time and can therefore be a very helpful advisor. Your own guardian angels and guides are also involved in readings, sometimes speaking directly with me or in consultation with my guide.
