Raven-Symoné Has This Surprising Thing In Common With Her 'That's So Raven' Character

If you could gaze into the future, you might have thought that actress Raven-Symoné was merely playing a character with psychic abilities in her hit Disney Show That's So Raven. But fast-forward to present-day, and the Disney alum is now revealing that those clairvoyant abilities never quite went away.

In a recent episode of iHeartMedia's The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda, the child star opened up about having psychic visions, similar to her iconic character Raven Baxter on That's So Raven.

"I believe in psychics, puns f---ing intended," she shared during her podcast with wife and co-host Miranda Maday.

The 37-year-old continued by expressing her belief in the mind’s ability to tap into wavelengths that go beyond the physical realm.

“I believe actually humans have the ability in their brain to tap into energy fields that allow for truth to connect when you know how to translate it correctly,” she says. “I can walk into a room, and it's reading energy and energy in the psychic plane because it's not on a physical, material plane."

While she may not possess the exact ability to see into the future like her on-screen character, Raven-Symoné acknowledges that she frequently experiences moments where events unfold in her mind or encounters bouts of déjà vu, making her feel as if she has already lived through those scenes.

"I do have moments where I really will just stare, and I will see a scene that is happening to me, or that is going to happen to me in another dimension, and I'm like, 'Yo, this is weird,'" she says. "There will be a time when I'm walking, and I'll trip over nothing."

Witnessing the growth of Raven’s career over the years, one might assume that she might have gotten a glimpse into her future before it ever unfolded. With her four-season stretch on Disney Channel from 2003 through 2007 and how acting in the show’s spin-off, Raven’s House, the sitcom has been hailed as iconic TV programming and staple for the millennial childhood — which is nothing short of extraordinary.

Raven attributes her otherworldly abilities to her spirit guides, with whom she claims to have been in contact since the age of seven. "The way we connect is through our trauma. Meditation just allowed my spirit guides to help me, and even to this day, that can happen," she stated.

Despite her own experiences with psychics and spiritual roots abilities, Raven-Symoné remains skeptical when it comes to others claiming to have similar powers. Cautiously, she explains how she doesn't get easily swayed by individuals making such claims — maintaining equal parts skeptic and believer because, in Raven’s world, there’s always room for balance.

"Now if you sit me down and somebody's like, 'Look into my crystal ball,' I'm gonna be like, 'Give me my money back.'” she says. “But I do believe there is natural auras that hold the experiences of all of our people, totally."

The late actor Audrey Hepburn once said something that I think a lot of married couples who have at least 10 years under their belt will agree with: “If I get married, I want to be very married.” In my mind, this means very committed, very complementary, and very willing to go the distance — otherwise, what’s the point?

Really, what’s the point?
