It is not surprising to hear some of the outrageous things clients have reported about what some Intuitive Readers, and Psychics have relayed to them. Before drilling down into that, the basic question that must be asked is, ‘Why do we employ Readers in the first place?’ The most common reason shouldn’t surprise you. The reason most employ these (mostly) well-meaning people is most of us want to know, based on what we are going through at the time, is if everything will turn out OK.
People are in control of their own lives, their future and, therefore, are responsible for the decisions they make. However, there are Readers who can read the energy emanating from your mind, they can pick up on your fears and they can read that as truth and offer advice based on that information. This is not a psychic reading, this is mind reading (and sometimes mind control) and they are two very different things. Many are mind readers who THINK they are psychic. This is where it gets sticky.
Our minds are way more powerful than we think. If someone tells us something bad is going to happen, that is a reflection of our own fears, and we choose to receive that as truth then, guess what?… it’s probably going to happen. My advice is when you find yourself in this predicament is STOP the reading immediately and RUN. There’s no need to allow the reading to go on and to be polite. Then, get into a quiet place, breathe, and repeat this affirmation: “I nullify that thought so that it does not enter in to my subjective mind.” Furthermore, as often as you wish, envision a blank canvas and envision, in detail, how you want this situation to turn out. I can guarantee you, this will not only help alleviate your fear, it will begin a trajectory of creation in your own life and, more often than not, you will affect the outcome to be what you want. Focus on what YOU WANT.
Some, but very few, people who come to see me become frustrated when I tell them I won’t tell them what to do when they find themselves at a crossroads in their lives. It’s because they are in a mindset of victimhood. Yes, I know that’s a very strong word, but it’s true. In this case, what I mean by the word “victim” is that the client believes life is happening TO them rather than FOR them. In the case of a client at a crossroads, what I will do is, 1) ask the client what choices they see, 2) then take each choice and read the energy of that, and 3) tell them the consequences I see, in that moment, based on each choice. Then, the client is free to choose which choice they will make, based on their own free-will.
My first mentor once told me, when she did a reading for me, was that everything she was going to tell me about my future was not set in stone and that I have the power to make it happen or not happen based on my choices. She said that the reading was based on the current energy, at the time, and that what happens in my future was up to me.
A hypothetical example would be when a psychic tells you you are going to meet the love of your life next year. This may be true but if you are indulging in depression, sitting on your couch watching trash on TV, snacking all day and night thinking you are going to meet the love of your life so, “why bother going out and living life since I will meet the love of my life soon,” then guess what, you won’t meet the love of your life because you didn’t go out with your friends during the times they invited you out and, therefore, you missed meeting the love of your life.
Remember, life is happening FOR you and not TO you. Let that sink in.
One must take responsibility for their own thoughts, words, and actions, so when a psychic tells you you will meet the love of your life next year, take a look around you and take inventory of your beliefs and your behaviors. Are you living in such a way that the love of your life will find you? Is there room in your life for another? Are you still nursing the disappointments from your previous heartbreak?
One personal example of the power of the mind: I was in a dangerous auto accident with my daughter when she was only 2 months old. Luckily, she was not injured but I sustained injuries that propelled me into a year-long intensive therapy program. In addition to physical injuries, I had Post Traumatic Stress (deep fear) from the accident and I asked the Psychic if I was going to be OK and if I will ever have more injuries in the future. This psychic had been extremely accurate when making future predictions about my life. In this case, she told me that, when I reached a certain age, I was going to be in another dangerous auto accident that will put me in intensive therapy again. What happened? I immediately remembered what my mentor had told me. I went to my quiet place, took control of my breath, went inside myself with my hand on my heart, I affirmed, “I nullify that thought so it does not enter in to my subjective mind.” Every time I thought about it, I did this ritual. I then envisioned a blank canvas and saw myself easily traveling down the road in a car. And, I’m five years past the age in which she predicted the auto accident.
Another issue that confounds me when a client tells me another told them when a death was going to occur: NO Reader should ever tell you when or how you are going to die or when someone you know or love is going to die. Why? Because this information can be planted in the mind and it can happen. Let me tell you, the mind is THAT POWERFUL. God help that Psychic. They just entered into a very powerful karmic contract with you and it may not turn out very well for them.
Even though clients go to see Psychic Readers to find out if everything is going to be OK, let me save you the trouble. EVERYTHING TURNS OUT OK. If it’s not OK, then the lesson in faith, for you, is not completed. Every reading should have a glimmer of hope, of love, and a positive message that empowers you to choose the life you want to LEAD.
In love and truth,
