After another closed eye point and grab expedition at the local library self help section, I have just started reading the Everyday Psychic by Karen Harrison. It is a great read providing in simple terms the importance of and techniques for, how to get in touch with your inner psyche.
In the initial pages of the book the author also talks about the use of Psychic Readings. I thought it would be a good topic to share as 2013 is the start of an era of change and people I know have started to seek assistance to help identify what paths in life they can take.
I have been fascinated by psychic readings ever since I received a reading from Scottish lady while living in Glasgow years ago, at the local Saturday markets who told me I was going to stay in the UK for an extended period of time, at least 2 years from that date. I had already booked my ticket to return to Australia within the month so proceeded to tell her she couldn’t be more wrong. But she stuck to her guns and told me I would eat my words. After 2 years living in England, eat I did and from then on I had a new found respect for psychics.
The Everyday Psychic book explains a psychic reading as a reading of energies within a situation, so that when a psychic picks up the future they are seeing what is likely to happen if you carry down the current path. It is explained as the likely outcome but importantly, NOT the predestined outcome.
And this is where the value of psychic readings comes in. Once you become aware of a likely outcome from a reading, you can then choose whether or not to move your future in a different direction away from an outcome you may not want. You can be proactive to change your patterns of behaviour, emotions or attitudes, to work toward that different outcome (that is of course if you are told about something you don’t want to experience, rather than upon leaving the reading you will be swept off your feet by a gorgeous millionaire looking for someone just like you – I live in hope!). A reading allows you to make informed decisions and choices about changing the things, if you choose to, that are creating your likely future.
This is a slightly different perspective to the concept that what a psychic reading tells you, will be your future or fortune. So if you have a healthy respect for psychics, or any intuitive work (not in the least because intuitive work is what I do ;)), consider your use of this service in the understanding that you are always in control of your own destiny and if you are told of an outcome you don’t like, you can change it.
You should also always have a healthy scepticism, after all psychic ability is based on reception and recognition of subtle information by the psychic senses and then the ‘interpretation’ of this information. The interpretation may not always be 100% correct but the main theme will be there, so an open minded approach is a must…
Finally as a little checklist to get the best out of your psychic reading, from both my experience and from the book:
- you should be mindful of who you see, work with someone who you connect or resonate with and who you feel you can trust;
- keep an open mind and a healthy scepticism;
- where advice is given you do not have to take that advice and you and your reader should feel comfortable with the fact that that is your choice;
- know that YOU can change your destiny if you so choose;
- and try not to form an unhealthy reliance on readings for everyday dealings especially if your psychic or energy reader recommends they fly with you on your business trip to London at your expense (yes I have heard a story where this has happened).
