If you have been following my blog or Facebook page, you’ll know that I have just moved to a new country (Australia) and a new city (Brisbane).  Over the last two weeks I’ve met a lot of new people who have asked me about what I do.

Telling people you’re a professional intuitive is usually something that either kills conversation fairly quickly or sparks off a series of interested questions.  Luckily for me most of the people I have spoken to have been interested in my work and open to it.

The most common questions/reactions are:

  • Do you know everything?  Do you already know everything about me just from talking to me?
  • How many fingers am I holding behind my back? or what did I have for dinner last night?

Some people seem to think that being psychic means being all knowing and omniscient about other people. Actually, this is a common misconception.

Being psychic means you get ONLY the information you NEED from Spirit, as you need it. Information that you need = information that helps you or someone else on their path; information that’s relevant and helpful.

It’s not a party trick.

Some psychics may have experienced something different, but for me there really NEEDS to be a reason for me to get the information I get.  When I meet people, I can often tell a lot about who they are and what they’re like.  I can sometimes hear thoughts. But I never really get a whole lot of information that I don’t NEED and I definitely don’t get to invade anyone’s privacy or get a peek into something I’m not meant to.

On the other hand, reading for someone is easy because the client gives me permission to read for them and there is certain information that they need to have.

But I can’t tell how many fingers someone is holding behind their back.  I can’t usually tell you what you had for dinner.  I can’t tell you the lottery numbers if you don’t need to win the lottery right now (and most of us really don’t!)

So, when it comes to psychic information, you get the information you’re meant to get. And what you think you need to know is not necessarily what you need to know.

So, if you want to be psychic, surrender to the Spirit in you. Don’t assume you need to know certain things. Ask Spirit to give you the information that is really HELPFUL and RELEVANT to your life and to the lives of those around you – to help you to live your most joyful and fulfilling life.  Or put another way, to help you to live your highest path and purpose.

And don’t ask to be able to read people’s minds or to know the lottery numbers because it’s mostly inappropriate and useless information anyway.

Does being psychic mean you become enlightened and omniscient about your own life?

Another interesting lesson that I have been learning in the last month or so is that being psychic doesn’t mean you can sail through life knowing anything you want to. Sometimes you fall flat on your face.

No psychic is going to be 100% correct all the time, but I do spend my days reading for people and telling them information they tell me is correct, the vast majority of the time. Out of the 400-450 people I’ve read for, I’ve only had a handful tell me they really didn’t resonate with what I told them.

But when it comes to my own stuff and life, I can sometimes have a big blind spot – especially if there is a lesson in it for me.

I went through a lesson in these last two weeks where I formed prejudices about someone I just met and it turned out to be completely and utterly wrong as far as I can see now.  Falling flat on your face is very good because it brings you back down to earth.  Otherwise you can perhaps think you are right about everything in your own life, and then it’s game over – there’s nothing to learn because you have access to everything.  And of course that’s not how it’s meant to be.

In addition, I had a situation this week where I was looking for an apartment with my mother. We arranged to see an apartment and I assumed before I got there that it was going to be unsuitable. Most of my assumptions are intuitive, helpful ones.  But when I got there, it turned out to be the apartment I wanted and it ticked all the boxes.  I got it wrong for a reason – because there was a lesson in it for me which was: don’t allow all of your initial impressions to close your mind – especially if you have nothing to lose just by checking something out and exploring it.

That is, unless you have a very strong feeling to stay away from something or someone. Those feelings of dread or repulsion in your gut always need to be heeded.

So, if you want to be psychic, surrender to your spirit. You must also be open to getting it wrong and having your view of things expanded – especially when it comes to your own life and ‘stuff’.

Being psychic is NOT about knowing everything or having ‘the Truth’.  It’s about getting only the information you personally need, when you need it.
