In the Maalaala Mo Kaya episode titled “Third Eye,” we witnessed how Peachie Valera (portrayed by Jolina Magdangal) decided to face and conquer her fears. Having a special kind of gift that most people does not have, a strong sixth sense or having the ability to communicate with spirits, she became so confused and frightened at first. However, as she matured, Peachie knew that she needed to stop running away from it and find the purpose of having that kind of ability. Going through that process was tough but she knew what she has to do to champion that phase for herself and her family.

In this full interview with MMK host Charo Santos-Concio, Peachie shared how she journeyed to embrace her special ability. As young as five years old, Peachie revealed that she already started to discover that she has a special kind of ability. Being young and innocent, she thought it was normal because her father was also interested in paranormal occurrences. But as she grew and entered teenage years, she realized that not many people have it and started to have fears and doubts about herself. When she was 15, Peachie shared that she experienced “intense astral projection” which deeply frightened her.
Thus, Peachie knew she needed to find the answers to her many questions and find the purpose of her special ability. She shared:
“So, I joined the group. First with the intention of knowing what this is all about and secondly, no’ng nakita ko kasi it’s an advocacy group, we don’t get paid to do ‘yong quest namin… and then, sabi ko, parang I think I want to use whatever this is to help both living and the dead.”
Apart from her journey, Peachie also shared how her special ability helped her find out the truth about herself that was concealed by her parents for a long time. She also opened our minds about what being a Spirit Questor really is based on how she and her group handle their special abilities.
