It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
A lot of people are asking me what prediction I can make about our world and where we are headed. For the record I don’t make predictions, I track energy, watch for patterns and choice points and share the prescription to empower people. Everyone is looking for answers, for support, to be told they will be ok, that they will be safe, get what they want etc.
It’s always in times of great turmoil that people turn to an intuitive /psychic reading to make predictions to help them feel better. Certainty is a hot commodity right now but I say, buyer beware! If your motive is absolute certainty you run the risk of disempowering yourself, the opposite of what you need.
Over the years I’ve received tons of emails from people asking for my thoughts on predictions. Some of the common questions are: What do you do if you get a negative prediction? Are predictions absolute or can you change them? Why haven’t particular predictions from psychic readings come true yet? What about predictions (often doomy and gloomy) made about world events? I heard recently someone say with absolute surety we are heading to World War Three, and another person predicting aliens for sure will come to stop it.
I say be careful. It’s not that predictions or psychic readings are all useless, it’s that people tend to see them as absolutes which is harmful. It’s easy to make an assumption about the value of it too. If you turn your power over to a reading you are setting yourself up to create it as your entire mindset will be influenced by what you heard and your choices, behaviours, and vibrational patterns will signal “Let’s have some of that!” even if it’s not what you want, or “Let’s live like that’s happening already!” Which can lead to hypervigilance and an expectation of negativity, pain etc. or conversely turn you into a lazy armchair astronaut. “She said it was going to all work out!”
It’s great if you got a reading that confirms the path you are on and it helps you stay focused and more trusting but if you’re told about difficulties and challenges without explanation about the nature of personal reality, you are likely going to hear that as “This is going to happen” instead of “Great info, does it feel right in my bones? Does this help me course correct? How can I use this information to get back into alignment with the highest good for all?” Fear is the most prevalent emotion when you accept a prediction as absolute and that is never a good feeling to foster.
Interesting that we are in a time where the media trains us to foster fear and chaos as the main event as soon as we take even a peek at what’s going on in the world. Fear and suffering sell. Notice how no one talks about the amazing things happening in the world? Is good news that boring? I talked about this in an earlier blog about the contagion of thought viruses.
My point is when you go to someone for a predictive psychic reading and you are already in stress mode/ fight-flight looking for certainty, which in essence says you have none,- that energy will influence the reading.
I’ve read for over 50,000 people in 29 countries over the last 30 years and have seen many predictions come true while others have changed due to free will. I’ve observed again and again that the future is a mutable (or changeable) place and isn’t written in stone for any of us. When I still did predictive readings, (many years ago I shifted my focus on empowerment, strategy, and prescription), I saw an outline of probable realities at the time of the reading. I looked at the story of your life—the past, present, and potential future—at that moment. I always told the client this is probable and potential not absolute.
But my observation became very clear that if a person was on a path of consciousness, healing, and empowerment and doing a lot of work to change their patterns, they would no longer be the person experiencing the story from that first point of vantage. That changed everything.
I believe we all have a blueprint that draws out the story of our fate and destiny, and that certain events and life experiences are preordained, but you still have the pen in your hands. If I tell someone that they need to stay conscious or they’re going to slip on a banana, and then they don’t stay conscious, they’re going to stumble on that banana.
In my experience, once we get the initial prediction, it seems we all want to know when it will happen. I used to always brace myself for this question because time is very difficult to predict. What if as I said earlier you move beyond your patterns and are calling in another reality? Does the first prediction still stand? The answer is no it changes and morphs just like you do. Time is like a spiral, not a straight logical line. Regardless of what is predicted you still need to be present to your life as it unfolds from the “now til the now” as you also run the risk of being too attached to a future that has not yet come to be. That’s always a hazard of clinging to the details of what someone says about your future.
Do not allow the perception of negative readings make you hopeless and freaked out. Readings should empower you, not leave you worried about your future. Even if difficult information is being shared, it should be delivered with compassion and a good reader should be able to show you an alternative path if there is one, or continue the reading to show what transpires after a difficult cycle ends.
Also remember that whenever you get a reading from anyone, you’re getting that psychic or intuitive’s perspective from a number of sources. The person using their psychic abilities on your behalf is going to read through a filter of their own life experience and personality. And, the reading is only as good as the connection between you and the reader. I always encourage people to get references for a psychic and to pay close attention to their intuition.
If you don’t feel a connection with the psychic or you have a bad feeling about the reading, then trust your inner voice.
I’ve told this story before but it bears mentioning here. For example, I once had a very popular psychic tell me I would never have a relationship with a faithful man. In my heart, I knew that was not true, but it upset me so much it took me ages to shake it given my history. And, as you probably know, I’m now in a loving, very honest, trusting relationship with a completely faithful man. He also told me that I had reached the height of my career, and I should accept my path as someone who would never attain much. That was a year before I signed a record deal with EMI music followed by meeting Marc, then becoming a Hay House author. So was he wrong, or was it that his reading forced me to make changes in my life that aligned me with where I am today?
I believe wholeheartedly in the statement “the act of observation changes that which is being observed.” What he said was impactful and a great impetus for deep inner work, which I did do. But I know about these things and many people do not, as they give power to the reading and accept it as finite.
Sometimes predictions are meant to wake you up.
Oracles can at times be like tricksters, especially when you aren’t listening to them and you might keep going back to get more and more readings. I call this oracle abuse. In fact, as a general rule, I would n’t do more than two readings a year for my clients. When you get too many readings, you’re basically giving your power to the reader. If you keep asking for more signs and guidance through readings about the same subject over and over, the energy becomes desperate and all you see is what’s not there yet. You move from the reading empowering you to the reading fostering lack in your subconscious.
Readings should be treated with respect. Look to a reading as a means to track your course and to support what you already know or reveal what you may not know on your path. Remember the psychic is seeing what is potential and probable, but you still have to stay in the present and you can’t be a passive couch potato. You must take appropriate action and have faith that Spirit has a plan for you that may or not be revealed to you through a reading with a psychic. In the end, Spirit has the last say… not you or the psychic.
Are you getting caught up in a reading you had? Do you find yourself doing oracle card readings over and over about the same things? Even if these questions aren’t true for you, most of us have times when we need to let go and live more in the now. So, set an intention this week to go deeper into each moment and take action in the present. Then write down five steps to take this week, in the now. The actions don’t necessarily have to be about your future. You might need to clean out your closet and donate old clothes, start using sunscreen, or begin eating a healthy breakfast. Or, it may be time to get back to writing, sign up for a class, or do research on a career move.
