I had no idea I may be psychic, until I fell into this work by happenstance. Over the ages people have pictured ‘us’ as people who know what things mean when they have visions, who know when they have visions, and are able to have an advantage over mere mortals.
Personally, I have grown up with ideas formed by psychic movies such as Stephen King’s Firestarter, in which psychokinesis is displayed as an obvious power, because the character’s hair would stand on end when she affected matter around her. You may also remember the more traditional idea of ‘the waking vision’ by the psychic – usually a vision on a hill or in the sky? I have almost utter incomprehension as to why the actors always close their eyes when they channel, because I have never had to.
In the movies it also seemed to me as if spirits were mostly portrayed as evil, which is why I probably never paid much attention to my more pleasant paranormal experiences, and dreams were meant to be more literal, more of a reproduction of actual events, in sequence, like a clip from a movie.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
Being psychic sort of snuck up on me. I had as many dreams as I thought the average child had, and though I did question my ability to visit fantastic places and having messages from the departed, as they were dying, I dismissed these incidents as a natural instinct endowed equally to every man.
Here is the truth: the only difference I had was that I grew up in a very artistically open family, with few if any religious restrictions or teachings. Surrounded by the automatically conjured impressions left by artists I grew up around, I simply learned to go with more spiritual inclinations when I felt them, but still dismissed them, nor paid much attention to them.
When I was diagnosed with an illness in 1999, I had to reinvent myself. It was not difficult to relearn the Tarot, and I was told by the company I later worked for that I had a high return caller ratio, which was unusual for them. They encouraged me to move to bigger and better things, which since have fostered my need to indulge my empathic work.
I started marketing myself as an empath, as I had always had a profound desire to work with people’s psychological issues. I had always been naturally compassionate and could win the heart of even the most disturbed individuals. It seemed I could feel their real selves, and from there I could work with their fears, not against them.
Our duty is to be useful, not according to our desires but according to our powers ~ Henri-Frederic Amiel
I was lucky that I established a client base that was perfect for my interests, working mainly with the present problems and maximizing the potential in the relationship. I worked with clients over a long period of time and waited patiently for outcomes, based on carefully choreographed advice and tailored relationship plans.
I also had a nice partner at the time who would confirm any feelings I had, or when we thought of each other, and often he would call me to see if I needed something. This natural conversation helped me gain more confidence in a relationship sense, in a less clinical manner.
After over twenty thousand phone readings, I have been pleasantly rewarded with much encouragement, especially by clients whose relationships I had encouraged over time.
I still don’t feel ‘psychic’. Apart from dreams I have, I ignore much of the information I receive if it does not affect me, thus allowing me some insight into things I decide to look into. But apart from a hearty ‘gut feel’ about certain things, I still feel the same doubts, fears and confusions all of us do.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent ~ Sophia Loren
I believe that had I not worked with so many clients quickly in succession, I may have never gained the confidence ascribed to a person like myself. I never appointed myself to this title. Would you know if you were a psychic? In my opinion one would probably would not if you were putting your energy into different types of work. You would simply be too busy to know.
I have also worked out a methodology around my work, and I have found a life purpose in it and this direction, as many of you may know, is not to manipulate people, or listen in to their most profound secrets, but to give you an affirmation of what you know you already feel yourselves and to put it into a workable context – thus celebrating and accepting each others’ weaknesses and working through them.
So, the next time you have a ‘gut feel’ – remember you are entitled to this type of vision too, but it may not come to the fore without work, and I mean, a lot of work.
