But today I am here as a Psychic and any other name in the previous paragraph so that you can understand who and what does this mean. I will go further in depth in forthcoming blogs, but I wanted to get started in this as I feel it very important to remove "Hollywood" from the Spiritual Calling of those who are Practicing Psychics, Mediums and Intuitives.
First off, what is the difference between all these titles? To explain the word psychic is like saying "ice cream" without the flavor. Everyone has a different statement and flavor of what "psychic" means to them; but I'm going to give you my point of view. We are all born with a sixth sense. That sixth sense is our psychic ability. Children are very psychic as they have not been turned off to this sense and thus the many aspects of imaginary friends and how grandpa or grandma has come to visit them even though they are passed on. Usually between the ages of 7 to 9, children begin to shut down this ability as they are told that it is not real. Therefore, it takes time and due diligence to regain this sixth sense. Just know, that it lies dormant, it does not go away. Now many of us study and keep it going through the study of Metaphysics which just means, "beyond science". Those of us that study and work in this field, do so with much experience. But we do come in different flavors...another blog in the future.
We first need to get to the basics. There is a difference between the title Psychic and Medium. I as a psychic, read people's energy. I connect to their Heart Chakra which takes me to their Higher Self and with the aid of tarot cards, I am able to feel and see symbols along with hearing or being jolted to reveal what I see, hear, feel and sometimes smell that is coming through for the client. Because I read this energy field, I can relate what is most important to the client at this moment in time. A Medium, is a person who is in contact with passed over loved ones or friends and some people specialize in this. In my practice, I just allow them to come through as these energies are invited to participate, but I do not promise that anyone will come through. Most people who consider themselves, Mediums first, will advertise that.
Then there is the term, Intuitives. Same as Psychic...only a gentler terminology to help people not be scared of coming to a reading which brings me back to the Hollywood version of a Psychic. I do not read minds. I don't know what you just ate unless you are wearing it on your blouse or tie. I do get feelings about you just as you get feelings about me if you are paying attention to your own psychic ability! I do not predict death or see death. The "Death" card in the Tarot Deck, (Hollywood at work) does not mean a physical death. To me, it means that you are being given a strong suggestion to put your past to bed, leave it behind and move forward. I work so that you find out areas in your life that are necessary to change and how you can do it constructively. I'm about doing things in beneficial ways. And we all need the help sometime.
My expertise is in Past Lives...so I advertise myself as a Psychic Reader, a Past Life Reader and Tarot Card Reader. This means that I work with your energy, allowing your past lives to come to me (whether you believe in them or not!) and allow the guidance to come to you in as beneficial a way as possible. You will be helped to know more about yourself as we have a tendency to live from the neck up. Staying in the head is usually just distracting what our heart wants to say. A good, ethical Psychic in my opinion, does not frighten you, ask you for large amounts of money to clear you off or insist that they can get a passed over "Uncle Ralph" out of the house for you even though you don't have an Uncle Ralph that has passed over. A good psychic is a person who you can relate to, you have and feel a connection, a person that will help guide you through usually the most difficult times in your life when your mind gets fuzzy and you are bogged down. You should leave feeling refreshed, with new ideas of how to start to move forward and have this psychic there for you when things get cloudy again. I have many clients that come in regularly for "check ups" as it is important to feel that you are working with someone that is helping you in your NOW.
Life changes every moment of every day...we all need guidance and a good psychic can be of help while you are going through those moments of Spiritual Growth" that can be demanding. A good psychic will help you stay grounded and help move you through the process. Please remember...you have Free Will and nothing a psychic says is written in stone. Change can happen and usually does. Predictions can come through, but it is up to YOU to discern. And you always have choices. So, I believe I have covered some things that I hope are helpful. I would love to hear from you.
Stay tuned for more information as I explore things that I feel will be valuable for you to know about psychics, ...we are going through life together and it is now time for us to claim our part within the Community. Blessings and Love, Lori Jae
