Over the course of my life, I have met many people who really want to know if psychics are for real. They want an honest answer, usually because they have an honest problem. Therefore, I have decided to share with you what I know to be the absolute truth about this subject.
Let me begin by telling you that since the age of 3 I have experienced vivid dreams that have often came true, seen ghosts walking through my house on a nightly basis, and heard “their” whispers coming out of every darkened corner, unoccupied room and most closets that I dared to pass by, on a nearly constant basis. And that, without a shadow of a doubt, is the absolute truth.
As I grew older I soon began to realize that I also knew things about people’s lives that I shouldn’t or couldn’t have known. Things that at first I assumed everyone knew, because I naively believed it was merely rational deduction and good old fashioned “common sense” that helped me recognize when someone was ill, suicidal, depressed, or facing some major obstacle in their life…even if they hadn’t mentioned it or looked particularly distressed at the time.
It took me years to finally understand that what I knew about people, sometimes upon first meeting them, other people didn’t know. It also took years of people convincing me that I had a gift, an ability that needed to be explored. Something that people wanted me to share with them; in fact, sought me out to share with them.; something that I was a little more than hesitant to do, because I didn’t understand it, nor did I believe it was “special” in any way.
Yet now, after years of living and working with these unusual abilities, taking classes, reading books, sharing my insights with others, and practicing this skill on all of my family and friends, I have finally grown comfortable with the fact that my abilities are very different and have a purpose and a value.
And in all truth, it’s been a very bumpy ride every since. I’ve had readings with individuals where I connected so deeply with their lives and their departed relatives that even I was amazed and stunned at how precise the information was, and how accurate the future predictions turned out to be.
Yet on the other hand, I’ve also had readings with people where I struggled for every bit of information I got. Readings where I couldn’t even seem to get a half-hearted connection established between me and their deceased relatives. And those readings are both draining and frustrating for me. In fact, they are usually only frustrating for me as the other person never really knows how hard I worked and how much better the reading could have been had I been able to hear as clearly or feel as deeply as I had on some of my prior readings. Yet my clients always feel they receive something of value, even when I know it could have been so much better.
And sometimes I get so tired of the disappointment I feel when things aren’t connecting securely that I take time off and wonder if “my gift” has left me, or merely the work of it has caused the pleasure in doing it disappear. And to be brutally honest, if I can’t do it well, I don’t want to do it at all…something my helpers in spirit have heard me say probably once too often over the last 30 years.
Yet I always go back. It seems like it’s something that I’m not allowed to quit on; like breathing.
So how accurate are Psychics? I’ve never tried to measure the accuracy of my own predictions simply because of the vast number of people I read for; along with the fact that they are scattered all over the world. However, from the feedback I do get from on-going clients, I believe my accuracy is high enough to satisfy them and seems to bring them back to me when their lives need more attention than any normal help can offer.
But accuracy can’t be measured by correct predictions alone; at least not in my belief. Because I know that when I read for someone and I tell them what I see coming into their lives they always have the ability to change some, if not all, of what I see…or at least I hope they do. After all, what fun would life be if it were so static; if our free-will didn’t exist and our entire lives were already fated to be lived in only one certain way?
I believe that every individual has the power and ability to change or alter outcomes of nearly every event simply through their choosing to do so. And I always encourage my clients to take my information and do just that. To make their lives better through the insights I have just shared with them.
I use my abilities to inform my clients of the most likely outcome of a particular event if they continue on with their lives in the same manner that they are currently living them. So by empowering them through knowledge and likely outcomes that I am privy to, I feel that I have done my job. In other words, I don’t want to restrict them in the way they live their lives by insisting that what I say is the only possible outcome; instead, I want to expand upon their possibilities, and I always share with them the ways in which they can change whatever it is they don’t like about their future.
Too often I believe that psychics feel compelled to state with absolute certainty what they see for the future with no room for alterations. I also believe they do so because our field is so intangible that if they didn’t appear to be resolute in their predictions, no one would listen to anything they say at all. But unfortunately, free will, choices, and changes will alter outcomes of many events regardless of their resolution and their “rightness” at the time.
Are some things fated to happen that won’t or can’t be changed? Yes. But even we Psychics don’t know which things they are. If we did you wouldn’t try to make your own choices, and I believe that is often why we are sometimes right about nearly everything, and other times, not so much so.
So in truth, accuracy lies in the eyes of the beholder most often. Even really great psychics should be used only as a guidepost; not the authority on your life. And I believe all psychics would find their accuracy soaring and their burden of being right lifted if only they could learn to relax and use the gift in the way it is given…not in the way they want it to be.
For me, being a psychic is a large part of who I am and something I couldn’t change even if I wanted to. Yet in sharing my ability with people for a fee, it also becomes a part of my job. And I’ve had to learn that no one I’ve ever met does their job with 100% accuracy…nor should we humans be expected to; because on top of everything else, we psychics are still people.
We have good days, bad days, sick days and irritable days. Does the quality of our lives and our emotions affect our readings; probably. Just like your mood, your life and your troubles affect your dealings with others and your ability, or even your desire, to do your job to the best of your ability. The same is true for all people, psychics included.
Although I must add that on some of my worst days I have done my best readings…so even that in the psychic world isn’t guaranteed.
I’ve even had people ask me when I’ve mentioned this to them if they could book their appointments on one of my “good days”…but you see…I never know until I begin our reading together how smoothly things will go and how strongly I will connect with your relatives. In fact, I won’t know until you tell me how much of what I’m saying makes sense to you whether it’s a “good reading” or a “challenging one”.
So the bottom line is this…being a person with an intangible skill like Psychic Discernment is so undefinable and sometimes so often completely out of even the psychics control, that all we can do is all we can do.
And while I love my job and can’t imagine ever doing anything outside of the Paranormal and Psychic field, there are some days I think it’d be easier to just sell sofas. At least then I can see, feel and describe the sofa to you in “definitive” terms. And you can sit down and experience the sofa yourself…long before you buy it. And if you get home and hate the sofa you can either bring it back or learn to live with it, because after all, you chose it with all of your senses involved.
It’s sometimes hard to charge people a fee for something you’re not sure of. I’ve had to learn that what I’m charging you for is my time, not my accuracy. But can your doctor, dentist or psychiatrist ever guarantee you that they’ll cure you? Can your lawyer ever guarantee you that you’ll win a case? No. They see likelihoods and probabilities of outcomes; just like I do.
So are Psychic Abilities Real? Yes. It has been proven to me time and time again. Because believe it or not I’m actually a skeptic at heart about most things intangible. So this was something that time, experience and results were needed for me to understand that it really did exist.
Know too that being a psychic can become a really large burden for psychics to carry, because you can never just have an opinion or express a likely outcome like everyone else does…people “expect” you to know. And we have to realize that they just might base their life decisions on what we say, and that really can become overwhelming at times.
But after 50 years of being Psychic I’ve finally learned that people will do what people will do. And that just because I’ve sometimes felt overwhelmed in the past by the gravity of my words that doesn’t mean I get to quit doing it.
Because I’m not like everyone else. I have an ability that really can help people. And it’s those times when I see a light come on in someone’s grieving eyes, or I feel their child enter back into their life via me to help heal their broken heart, or I forewarn of a coming job loss or car accident, and that person can either adjust or understand it when it happens, that I know, I have a powerful gift that is as real as anything else in this world.
And it’s also those times when I can tell a cheating husband what he’s about to lose and get him to change his ways, or I can help someone really find their passion and their purpose in life, or I work with a sick person and help them feel less pain, and sometimes am even blessed to make their passing easier, that I know…right or wrong…hard or easy…I have a job to do and I’m one of the few people I know who really has the built-in skills to do it in exactly the way that I can.
So being a practicing Psychic has become a passion, a duty, and an honor for me. Even when other people doubt its validity, I know better, because I’ve lived with it for over 50 years now. And I’ve also found that even when I’m wrong, there was a very good reason for it. Even I have had to learn how to trust the process and help when I can, and get out of the way when I can’t.
And I’ve been made to accept that sometimes I’m right and sometimes I’m not. I’ve learned not to expect so much out of myself because then I either have less to give or I quit giving at all. I have so little control over what my spirit helpers and your spirit helpers decide to share with me for you, and about you, and I fully understand that I can’t afford to expect to be right all the time. There’s just too much involved in this process to ever expect that.
But do I know people who claim to be really good Psychics and aren’t? Yes. Or perhaps I’ve just never caught them on one of their good days. Yet I also know several people who would never claim to be Psychic that most certainly are.
And I believe that if there was a person on the face of this earth who had all the answers all of the time, they would never find a moments peace. Plus, who really wants that? I mean who really wants to know everything? Seems like that would remove all the miracles, magic and surprises in life…and I love those just as much as the next person.
So I’m sorry when I “miss” something that was important to someone during an appointment, but I can only do what my gift allows me to do. Know that even I don’t completely know how all this Psychic stuff works…let alone how to control it entirely. Yes, I’ve learned a great deal about it over the years, but still, it involves things that are so much larger than us that my mind probably couldn’t even hold the truth of it all if I did know.
And with that said, I hope you can see how psychics are just people with a different sort of skill. And if we knew everything, we’d all be lottery winners by now and retired on some beach somewhere far away. It just doesn’t work that way. By design I believe.
So I do my work entirely based upon faith. Faith that my guides and your loved ones will be there when we meet and be able to get information through to me that will help you. It’s a lot like standing on the edge of a cliff and assuming someone will be there to catch you when you need them; because we control so little of the outcome of our readings….we just trust…we have faith…and with enough life-experience involved, we just do it because we can, and because that’s what we have to offer you. And sometimes, it’ll make all the difference in the world to you, and sometimes, it won’t.
A Psychics only choice is whether we decide to share our gift with you or not. The gift itself decides the rest. We too are just along for the ride. We have no special powers, we only have our gift, and even that is usually far more complicated than even we will ever understand.
