Have you ever visited a psychic? I have, of course, I live 30 minutes from Sedona, Arizona, the New Age, shameless shaman, psychics-are-us capital of the United States. Now, it may seem I'm bitter about psychics, but I'm not. There are some legitimate psychics out there. Each have their own style. Some use tarot cards, some consult your guardian angels, others hear voices - hmmm. I have had some interesting readings in my life, some right on, some way off. My aunt visited from Oklahoma and talked my mother into seeing a psychic. My mother is as old-fashioned as they get but went along with it. She was amazed. She told my mother details about me that were right on about me and my sister. So, I decided it was time for me to visit a psychic again. I get out the phone book and begin perusing the Yellow Pages. Low and behold, our computer repair-lady is a psychic. Wow. What luck. Except obviously she knows a lot about me already, I mean look how much our computers tell about us. The software we choose, our emails, etc. But I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.
We met at a coffee shop - not mine, but one in Cottonwood. Was hard not to be distracted as people I knew were coming in and out and I couldn't acknowledge them, trying to keep my focus on Krista and listen to what my guides had to say. There were many things said, but one point made was that I had been a nun in a past-life. I definately believe in past lives and had this feeing I was a monk or some other cloistered creature as I have always had a deep interest in spirituality as a child, even though nobody else around me did, and I loved being alone. In high school, when girls my age were reading romances I was reading self-help books and comparative religions. (Later, when Tracy told the girls at the Red Rooster about my past nun-hood, they all shook there head, yeah, I can see that, I can see that for sure). What does that mean? I dressed as a nun for Halloween once. My plain face and quiet demeanor probably lent itself to the whole garb.
Anyway, the reason she told me I had been a nun, was because at that time I was denied many things, to extremes. This lifetime is about having many experiences. To not judge anything as right or wrong. Okay, I believe that. I often find myself looking back at my life and recognizing that everything I have ever made a judgement on I ended up trying or became. That makes one pretty careful about what we determine as 'bad'.
I was told not to feel I have to prove myself and that I don't have to be successful to have the life I want. That was right on. I'm always trying to prove myself and have often taken jobs because of the money just to show I could do it. I was miserable and realized I would rather be happy and live my life fully rather than make a certain salary - only which in the end got spent all the same and still left me struggling to make ends meet.
Then there was the whole perception of, if I wanted anything done right or done at all for myself, it was going to have to be from me. Not realizing we have spirit guides, friends, loved ones, life that gives to and supports us as well. Low and behold, I'm not alone. Tracy keeps telling me this, but somehow it's hard to take in.
There were other things regarding the business, ex-husband, etc. But the last point, something I've been told before, is that I have the ability to see - as she, the psychic does. I think I'm intuitive but don't really know about the extent of all that. Maybe I should look into it. I certainly enjoy using the tarot cards and giving people readings - maybe I should set up a table in the store - Madame Pammy.
Has anyone else had a definitive psychic experience?
P.S. To the two girls that came in yesterday who delivered my check from the gallery, who are reading this blog, sorry I didn't have more time to visit with you. I would have loved to give you the Scary Lesbian/Rock-N-Roll star Jerome tour. Be sure to come back - hope your trip to the Grand Canyon was fun.
