Rosemary heard voices and saw "other worldly" faces, making her life a living nightmare. She became an outcast from her 5 siblings and parents who didn't understand her. Scared and timid, she was often threatened by her mother that she would "end up in the Towers" (an insane asylum) just like her grandmother, Eliza, and so Rosemary hid her gifts for many years.
It was only in her early thirties that she finally embraced her psychic abilities and with her spirit guide, Grey Eagle, learned to hone and perfect her talents. It wasn't long before Spiritual Medium, Rosemary Altea gained notoriety, becoming the voice of the spirit world while traveling the globe to spread the word about life after death. People were inspired, intrigued and amazed and before long she became a New York Times best-selling author. Her first book, The Eagle and the Rose, shot her to fame and garnered appearances on shows like Oprah, Larry King and 20/20 and feature stories in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Self and People. Rosemary has since penned 8 more best-selling books and has recorded numerous meditation and healing audios. She is also an acclaimed international teacher, speaker and healer and has lectured world-wide on the subject of spirituality and life after death. With over 40 years as a leader in her field, Rosemary is often referred to by her peers as an icon.
One of her priorities is working with children, both here on earth and the spirit world. Rosemary loves nothing more than to bring families together to give them comfort, healing, hope and joy.
When she's not working, she can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen (she's even written a cookbook) and spending as much time as she can with her darling boy, (her grandson) Rhys Astel.
