I spoke with someone recently and they asked me, "Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?" I paused for a moment and the words fell out of my mouth with ease. I said, "I don't have a clue where I'll be in 5 years. In life, you can plan all you want but it never turns out the way you want." I agree that manifesting works, I believe in feeling what you want and need, however, this does not mean that you will land where you want to be specifically.
This same thought process is what I come across quite frequently with people and their version of what a reading is. I too want to hear validation and to be acknowledged for my efforts. Life is not predictable. I do not purport myself to only deliver future predictions. It's not humanly possible. If perfection existed I would be younger, live in an exotic place, be with the love of my life and have an unlimited bank account. Careful what you wish for, that is a cliche that doesn't have any place in truth.
As you're reading this you might be asking yourself, "Why would I get a reading then?" I will be the first to tell you to not focus all of your energy on the reading that you receive. If you've recorded it, put it in a safe place, give it some time and listen to it in a month. Time is not linear and I tell my clients that if I'm given a day or month during a session that it could change, it's elusive. Again, you must be asking yourself, "Why would I book a reading?"
My answer, "You don't have to or need to."
If someone close to you has transitioned and you want to communicate with them, if you are listening to your intuition and want to know more, if you want to observe the roles that you've played and how your experiences have changed you and want to navigate a healthier approach to life....Have a reading.
If you're never ready. That's okay. It is an experience like no other. To be completely honest I have had my clients yell at me mid reading claiming that they are so angry that they can't stand it! I've been told that all they want to hear is the solution, not the work in between, not the building blocks to bring you to a place of clarity. They want a swift painless solution that sounds perfect to them. If you think that a reading is going to give you the only solution and the short cut you will be very disappointed. If you want to identify markers to know that you're on track, acknowledge your strengths, see your weaknesses and be kind with yourself...have a reading.
A reading is not the be all and end all. It's a way to help you observe yourself in a kind way. A reading should acknowledge your past and where you are presently. If all you hear are future predictions you're being ripped off. Take your money and leave.
