How to Receive a Better Psychic Reading

fog

Have you ever been curious about getting a psychic reading? When I had my first one 30 years ago (OMG!!!), I was absolutely fascinated. I couldn’t understand how they talked about  my inner thoughts so accurately.

After going to a few of them, I thought sure they were sharing notes on me. Each reading  was with different people, but had the same themes as the one before. How could they be seeing the same things just using intuition?? For myself I’ve always had a “sixth sense” about things:  from knowing who was about to call on the phone, to assessing the energy of people I was meeting for the first time.

I decided to go through the training at Psychic Horizons in SF and learn how to meditate and read energy. I learned how to have boundaries, and to respect a person’s space and never “read” them without their express permission. I practiced using my own intuition until it became strengthened and honed – and I realized that intuition is part of being human on this planet. Some people dismiss it and close off their own abilities, but I think most people have had their own strange coincidences and know it’s real.

Since then I’ve given thousands of people readings and healings through my own business. It’s stunning to think of where I started and where I’ve ended up. Supporting and guiding others has given me a full, happy life. I’ve met AMAZING people from every walk of life and every corner of the world. I’ve talked to mothers, wives and husbands; lawyers, soldiers, farmers, business women and men; artists, TV personalities, detectives and factory workers. I’ve encountered people from all income levels, faiths and passions – and from all over the world! It’s wonderful having “Facetime” and “Skype” nowadays because I can connect with anyone anywhere. The majority have positively impacted my own spiritual path.

There’s a handful of times though, I’ve encountered a readee who’s proves to be a challenge. Usually they are overwhelmed with emotion, blocked off, afraid of shifting, fearful of trusting me, in a lot of emotional pain or in denial. If I persist and sit with them, I can extract a gem of truth and healing that can assist the person, but it’s difficult and can take time.

I was happy to come across this post today by Matt Auryn, “How To Receive a Better Psychic Reading”. If you’ve ever thought about getting a reading, or haven’t found the right answers in readings, definitely read Matt’s perspective here!

For instance, be specific with your questions and be willing to accept you may not like what you hear. In fact, if you’re in too sensitive a space, you might want to wait to get a reading until you feel open to hearing an uncomfortable truth (in case one comes up). A good reader knows how to deliver difficult news in an inspiring way!

Here’s more of it:

“By being specific the reader can hone into that area of your life to give you more information, guidance, and specifics. Vague questions will often get vague responses. If you simply state “I want to look at my career.” A reader can look at what’s going on in your career and might be able to tell you what your career is. However, if you state, “I want to look at my career. Right now I’m a nurse and I’m not sure if where I’m working is the right place for me or if there’s a better option.” If you’re getting a reading that doesn’t interact directly with the reader, such as my private practice online where I read the person on my own and talk straight into a recorder, do not be afraid to provide information in the form. You will be glad you did.

Facing a Wildfire

May this song send peace and healing to anyone suffering from fierce fire and wild wind.

“Turn the volume all the way up. The palagis dubbed it to be “Like something out of a Disney Movie.” With the recent wildfires that threatened different parts of the United States, help was sent out from American Samoa to assist firefighters. They’re called Hand Crews, generally their job is to protect natural resources from the threat of a blaze by using hand tools on the outrigs of a designated area to prevent fire from scorching further.

It requires physical agility & endurance- Samoans are well known by the Fire Departments in all of the U.S. to be among the best hand crews. Listen as this “Handcrew” of Samoans straight from the motherland do what all us Polynesians love to do when physically performing a task: sing. Their voices harmoniously echo through the forest as they approach their day’s end in a symphony praising God for his protection & guidance over them. Isn’t it beautiful? Like & Share.”

So glad I ran into this article today! I hope it’s helpful to other people out there. I’ve been in and out of a few relationships, and when I’m alone I’ve noticed this slight twinge inside that I NEED to be part of a couple, because that’s what humans DO. I know intellectually that this isn’t the truth, but I still run into it sometimes… the following article is a good cure for that type of thinking:

“Be Alone Until You Find Someone Who Actually Gives A Shit About You

Article: http://thoughtcatalog.com/becca-martin/2017/06/be-alone-until-you-find-someone-who-actually-gives-a-crap-about-you/

Being alone is not scary, or bad, or a curse, or any other bullshit thing that people make it out to be. Being alone is also not lonely, unless you make it lonely.

Being alone is better than settling for a bunch of shitty dates that make you feel horrible about yourself or waking up next to some dude who thinks your name is Whitney when it’s not even close. Being alone is the time you have to get comfortable with yourself and that time is so important.

People get so stressed and worked up about being alone when there is no reason for it at all because being alone is as good or as bad as you make it.

Be alone until you find someone who doesn’t just say they will show up but actually shows up and shows up excited to see you. Be alone until you find someone who doesn’t make endless excuses and actually wants to spend time with you doing the things you want to do.

Be alone until you find someone who talks about you and who talks you up to their friends, or family, or coworkers, or the homeless dude on the street corner – literally anyone. Be alone until you find someone who is proud as hell to show you off because anything less than that is bullshit.

Be alone until you find someone who can’t wait to see you but not in an overbearing pushy, controlling manner but in an “I care about you” manner because yes, there is a difference between the two. And no, being with someone who controls you is not cool.

Be alone until you find someone you actually want to spend your free time with not someone you’re convincing yourself you like or worse – someone you have to convince to like you. Someone whose attention you have to beg for is not someone who is worth your time. If someone likes you, you will know otherwise it’s time to let them go and focus more on yourself.Be alone until you find someone who misses you when you’re not around, not someone who forgets you exist on the weekends unless they’re drunk and lonely. Be alone until you find someone who actually gives a shit about the way you feel. Not someone who says “oh well, you’ll forgive me later” or just expects you to get over it. Be alone until you find someone who doesn’t ghost you or leave you hanging more often than not.

Be alone until you find someone who is proud of you, who inspires you, who wants you to be better and wants to help you get there. Be alone until you find someone who erases your insecurities and makes you feel good in your own skin. Be alone until you find someone who puts you first and makes you feel like a priority because you don’t have time to be an option.

Be alone until you find someone who actually gives a shit about you. So many people settle for mediocre relationships with lame ass people – don’t be one of those people. Love is the one thing you should never, ever settle for.

Until then – be alone. You will thank yourself for doing so.”

Love and Lightning

Venus and Uranus were in an exact conjunction at 27 Aries yesterday. This noteworthy event happens every 225 days, and brings a fresh perspective to our personal relationships. Breakthroughs are common – both good and bad – and can show up the week preceding and the week following the aspect. So yeah, this new week upon us could reveal surprises and changes that can be challenging (but illuminating in the long run). Change is in the air.

So, how was your weekend? Did any shifts or insights occur on Saturday? The area where 27 Aries resides in your personal chart is where you will feel the effects most powerfully.

I had a funny, related experience. On my way to an event I passed an easy chair and a television in the middle of a street. They look like they had been thrown there by a strong force (Aries). Venus rules comfort and pleasure (i.e. the chair) and Uranus rules electricity and television (i.e. the TV). I wish now I had taken a picture of it!

Narcissism

Excellent article about being in a relationship with a narcissist. I’ve experienced this in my life and I feel lucky I broke free. This is great information that everyone should be aware of:

The Narcissist’s One Trick That Can Keep Us Hooked Forever.

By  | Textbook Narcissism :

“It’s the powerful emotional tool known as intermittent reinforcement, and when used correctly, it guarantees to get—and keep—virtually anyone hooked on anything.

Intermittent reinforcement is when one person in a relationship metes out or reinforces rules, rewards or boundaries occasionally or inconsistently. Instead of discouraging the other person, intermittent reinforcement actually does the opposite. It fuels their attempts to extract the reward once again, keeping them hopelessly locked onto the relationship.

Take for example a parent who says “no” to their child 90% of the time. It’s the 10% of the time the parent backtracks, which incites the child to whine, throw tantrums, or harangue to get another yes. Animals will do tricks every time, even after the trainer withholds the reward, like B.F. Skinner’s rat that hits the bar repeatedly for the chance pellet, over and over, whether it gets one or not. Gamblers, too, know that the intermittent reinforcement of the random, small pay out, will keep them at the slot machines until they empty their purses or pockets.

Those of you obsessed with checking your Tinder account, Tumblr blog, or Twitter, for the ambivalent thrill that comes with those hit-or-miss shots of validation, know what I’m talking about.

The narcissist knows what I’m talking about too. He is adroit at delivering a ping of validation when he senses you’re about to pull away, just to keep you tied to a relationship that serves his needs, usually at your expense.

It’ll be bad bad bad bad, but then all of a sudden good, and you are fooled into thinking good is here to stay. So you stay too. And like Skinner’s rat that starved to death in pursuit of the ever-diminishing, random reward, chances are you too will tolerate increasingly abusive conditions in the hope of catching hold again of a (brief) encounter with good.

But with a narcissist, the good is fleeting by design. That’s intermittent reinforcement.

If you’ve ever been stuck in the sticky grip of a narcissist, you know the drill. When the two of you first meet, the narcissist floods you with expressions of love. You are beautiful, witty, enchanting, the woman he’s always wanted but didn’t think existed. His search is over. Your shoulders relax, you let down your walls, throw open the gates. Your heart sings. You let yourself believe you’ve finally found the one.

Then, without warning, the narcissist switches tracks. Out of nowhere, you can’t do anything right. The qualities in you that she first exalted, are now your worst faults. She’s bored with you, disinterested. She starts to mention other guys, her old boyfriend. You think, what happened? You review everything she said, examining past events for clues that she really cared. Let’s see, she went to my hockey games, came with me to visit my mom in the hospital. Stuck love notes in my gym bag. Didn’t all that mean she loved me? What happened? Is it me?

No. It’s not you. You’re just caught in the narcissist cycle. The D&D, devalue and discard phase. The narcissist practice of projecting their internalized self-hate and disdain onto you, by doing and saying things to make you feel invalidated, rejected, and insecure.

Most of us with even a shot glass of self-esteem get hip to this, and decide to say sayonara. That’s when the narcissist will employ the emotional hook: Intermittent reinforcement. To keep you from exiting, the narcissist will do an about face, and signal you’re back in. He’s on time, attentive, he brings your favorite take out, remembers it’s your dog’s birthday. He takes you in his arms, the clouds part, and the light of his love shines down on you once more. You exhale with relief.

It won’t last. Doesn’t matter. Most of us will cleave to those haphazard disbursements as evidence that a loving, reciprocal relationship is still possible. After the investment we’ve made in the narcissist, we’re already set up to seize on reasons to ignore the bad stuff. So we hang in, continue to chase the good. The narcissist delivers her well-timed, little ping. We’re hooked.

The problem is, over time, the episodes of intermittent reinforcement get fewer and fewer, and the incidents of D&D increase. But the pain of D&D will never loosen the hook, as long as the narcissist continues to fall back on intermittent reinforcement. The only way to get free, is to adopt a strict no contact policy. The sooner the narcissist becomes a memory, the better off you’ll be.”
