A former paralegal who fell in love with the medium who connected her with her late husband in the afterlife has revealed how she agreed to marry him six weeks after their first date.
Mum-of-one Asha Rogers Webb, 43, from Swindon, Wiltshire, was devastated when her husband of 18 years, HGV driver John Rogers, 64, died suddenly on Easter Sunday 2018 from a swelling on the brain.
But destiny stepped in, according to Asha, now a ‘psychic channeler’, who found solace at the spiritualist church and met medium Kerin Webb, 60.
She consulted him on the advice of her daughter Saffron, 22, who had seen him for a reading, only for them to be drawn together by an explosive chemistry.
And the couple, who were married on December 7, 2019, feel they have John’s blessing according to Kerin who he believes Asha’s late husband ‘brought them together’.
Asha has now quit her legal career and they have combined their psychic gifts to design oracle cards to help people find their soulmates

Recalling their first meeting, Kein said: ‘As soon as I walked in and met Asha I felt an instant sense of comfort. She had an incredible energy about her.
‘We had a soul connection, and we knew each other from a different life. It felt like we had known each other in many other lives.
‘I’d never felt anything like it before and I definitely think it was John who brought us together.’
Asha’s life was turned upside down in April 2018 by her first husband’s death.

John, who had various health complications, including heart issues such as atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver, suffered a stroke just days after an April 1 routine check up.
He was suddenly paralysed on the left side of his body and blinded in his left eye.
Asha said: ‘Suddenly doctors were telling us that they didn’t expect him to live through the weekend, because there was a swelling and bleed in his brain.
‘I desperately wanted him to fight and to keep fighting.’
It was Asha’s daughter Saffron who first encountered Kerin, when she booked reading with him to try to connect with her late father
Tragically, on April 7, John fell into a coma and took his final breath.
Distraught, Asha, who had been aware of her psychic gift since childhood when she would ‘speak to invisible people,’ felt a strong need that evening to visit her local spiritualist church with Saffron.
The medium said a man with diabetes and a heart condition who had recently passed, wanted to tell his family he was ‘all right’.
Asha, who says this reassurance was typical of her beloved John, who called her every day when he was working to let her know he was okay, said the message brought her and Saffron great comfort.

She added: ‘The messages from John really helped both me and my daughter and gave us both guidance.’
Throwing herself into psychic pursuits alongside her daughter, it was Saffron who first encountered Kerin – who realised he was psychic in 1976 after he completed an extra sensory perception test and worked as a hypnotherapist from 1997, before starting to give phone readings in 2009.
She wanted to connect with her late father and was so impressed by Kerin that she told her mum to book a reading of her own.
Asha said: ‘After her reading with Kerin, Saffron immediately told me I should call him as he was great and it helped her.
‘I decided to call as I was struggling and it was such an emotional time.
‘I struggled even to go to the shops because I was alone and John would usually be there with me.
‘I needed some reassurance, and I needed to connect with John again.’
Then, on the anniversary of John’s death in 2019, she decided to call Kerin again.
Around that time, Asha had been organising a mediumship evening in Swindon and decided to ask Kerin to come along.
When the pair met in person for the first time on April 27, Asha said she felt ‘drawn’ to him as they had an ‘undeniable connection’.
She said: ‘It felt like I had known him before, not just from the calls, but in a different life. We were soul mates.
‘There was a warmth to being around him and I felt so comfortable.’
A week later, in May 2019, they went on their first date, where they found out they were both wearing the same necklace – a Talisman of the Seven Archangels – which they had both coincidentally worn and never taken off since 1994.
Asha agreed to marry him just six weeks later, saying: ‘Kerin and I love the same things and it’s incredible to be with someone who shares the same gift and the same understanding of the world.
‘Our relationship is more intense and intimate and more honest because we help each other and do each other’s readings.
‘After meeting him, I felt like I was in a better place. Being with Kerin made me feel strong and I felt like we were on the same path together.
‘I felt like I knew him and that we had been in love in a different life. He was my twin flame.
‘Six weeks after our first date, Kerin proposed and I said yes.’
Love crept up on Asha from nowhere, when she had not expected to find it again.
She said: ‘I never expected to meet someone after John, but it felt so right. Also, John had said to me that he didn’t want me to be alone.
‘Kerin and I were wearing the same talisman, which was astonishing. I couldn’t believe it as I’d never met anyone else who wore it.
‘Incredibly, we both put it on in 1994 and had never taken it off since.
‘It felt like it was a sign, like this was someone I had to meet. Like we were meant to be together.
‘I think we loved each other in a different life and were finally meeting in this one.’
The happy couple were married at the Temple of Minerva in Bath, Somerset, on December 7, 2019 in front of 30 friends and family and Asha decided to quit her job as a paralegal to focus on using her psychic gift to help others.
In mid 2020, Asha says she was awoken by a spirit who presented her with oracle card descriptions – looking into the future – and she started to write them down on her phone.
Within a week she had made the cards, named Divine Inspiration – The Power of the Words, which she says have now helped thousands of people around the
She said: ‘I started to realise that I could really help people, in the same way I got through my own grief through readings.
‘I feel so fulfilled doing this, because I always wanted to help people.
‘Meeting Kerin was so important, because it was the catalyst which set us on this path, and it feels like it was our destiny to assist others.
‘I’m so excited about our future and what we will be able to do to help people with their mental health and wellbeing.’
In August 2020, the couple created a set of love oracle cards, Soul Connections – When Two Hearts Meet, to help others to find their soul mates.
And in December 2021 they produced cards to promote wellbeing called Power of Healing Guidance along with Angelic Love oracle cards, and in June this year they will be releasing the Runes of Destiny.
Now, if their cards can help one person to find the kind of connection she has enjoyed with both John and Kerin, Asha will feel her work has all been worthwhile.
She said: ‘I’ll always miss John, but thanks to the spirit world I met Kerin and it was meant to be.
‘Now Kerin and I are working as a team to help others. The spirit world has changed my life.’
