Next week my friend and I are seeing a psychic - one with a proven track record of success. In fact, I may visit two psychics – not to comparison shop about my future but as a sort of litmus test between the two. Wouldn’t it be neat if the second psychic said, “I sense you’ve recently had a glimpse into your future…”
I believe certain people are able to see beyond the limited vision and scope most of us possess. I’ve heard far too many stories of psychics being spot on as to certain details of peoples’ lives they couldn’t possibly know without this ability.
Perhaps we’re all born with such vision or sixth sense but have it “educated” out of us by so-called civilized society. (Out of fear? Witches were once burned at the stake for possessing such magic.)
One of my children was able to see auras at a very young age. Along with numerous other examples, he very matter-of-factly described the colour floating about the head of the much-despised grade school Vice-Principal. It was not one of the good colours.
Until now, I’ve never had any desire to visit a psychic. But since the future I once envisioned no longer exists, I’m curious as to what will take its place. And, yes, I know, I am the master/mistress of my own fate/future but a little nudge in the right direction (some hints) wouldn’t hurt.
While I’ve never heard of a psychic delivering bad news (I suspect they keep this burdensome knowledge to themselves) I’m not taking any risks here. I will be right up front regarding that kind of scenario.
“No bad news, please,” I will insist. “I worry enough as it is. Just some general guidelines and predictions as to the good stuff.”
But, geez, what if there’s very little good news to pass along? I guess I’m really hoping for a psychic who is also capable of (compassionate) fabrication and/or omission.
If my posts become very spiritual in nature and I lose the bad words, sarcasm and flippancy, you’ll know that despite my instructions to the contrary, I received word of my imminent demise.
Seriously? I’m a little nervous. But still gung ho.
