The Blind Men And The Elephant

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIf you consult with various psychics on a regular basis, then you have probably found that you tend to receive varied, and sometimes even contradictory information from them. Whenever I am asked about this, I explain it by relaying the old fable in which six blind men set off to try and ‘see’ an elephant.

In this story, the first man touches the elephant’s side, and says it is very much like a wall. The second man touches the tusk and declares that it is like a spear. The third man grabs the trunk, and declares it is similar to a snake. The fourth man touches the leg and is sure it is like a tree. The fifth man touches the ear, and says it is like a fan. The last man touches the tail and is sure it is like a rope. They then discuss what exactly an elephant is.

This is very much how psychic readings work, and why different psychics may give you different information. Each psychic’s talents and reading process are as unique as they are. Some are very good at identifying issues from the past, or old karmic patterns that have helped put their client in the situation they face today. Others are very good at reading the current energy and events in the client’s life. Still others may have a knack for peering into your future. Some are good at all three.

Certain psychics are also excellent at providing specific ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answers or timelines, while others may be much more adept at offering in-depth guidance and comprehensive information. Some are good at names, while others are better at describing people and places.

In other words, all psychics are ‘blind men’ holding on to just a piece of the elephant. What they see and say is their interpretation or perception of their portion of the elephant. A reputable psychic will always aim to speak their truth to help their clients, but it is important to remember that there are many truths. The blind men in the story were all correct in what they sensed and felt, but it was impossible for any of them to have the complete picture.

This is also how we as individuals perceive our personal reality. Suppose you get distracted and burn your dinner. You may perceive this in many ways: I’m overworked, I’m not as good a cook as my mother, I need to work on focusing on the task at hand, and so on. Any or all these things may be true. What may also be true, is that the food you were cooking was contaminated. By burning it, you saved yourself, and possible others, from a bad case of food poisoning!

Often things happen in a person’s life that, at the time, they thought was the worst thing that could happen, only to lead them to something greater. A job they didn’t get or lost, led them to a new place with better people, pay and location. The loss of a relationship is heartbreaking. However, once the pain has passed, often a new sense of strength is found. Many times, it opens the door for a better relationship with someone new.

Sometimes the universe shakes things up for us, because it has better things are in store for us. People tend to get too comfortable or committed to just their piece of the elephant. It is important to remember when we are facing challenges, that the Universe not only sees the whole elephant, it also created it.
