One day a guy came in for a reading and before we began he asked me how accurate I was. I giggled and asked, “So you think accuracy is important?” to which he told me he thought accuracy was very important. So I gave him the following scenarios.
Scenario one; we are in a car together, I the passenger, and you the driver. I turn to you and say that we will be in a car accident, and it happens. Wow! That’s so cool! You’re so accurate! Not! Not cool.
Scenario two; I’m your passenger and you’re driving, instead this time I tell you to get in the next lane to avoid a car accident, and nothing happens. Was I accurate? Hard to tell. But which would you prefer?
Many people want accuracy in a reading. They naturally think accurate information will protect or prepare them, but as the above scenario shows, accuracy can lead to harm, especially when the receiver of bad news does not have the ability to avoid or deal with it. On the other hand, when harm is avoided, how do you judge accuracy? Many of the psychic readers I know do the work to help people avoid harm, which leaves us open to doubt, because nothing happens.
The human survival mechanism strongly implores us to be on the look out for potential threats, so it is natural for most people to ask about up coming danger in a reading; this is what I call a Reactive Reading. In a Reactive Reading you are told about a potential problem that may happen in the future to which you prepare to react to. Most people will say they are preparing, and therefore are not reacting, but responding. Yet in the moment you hear of a potential threat your preparation is a reaction to an event that hasn’t, and may never happen, rather than a response to an actual threat.
I prefer to give what I call Proactive Readings. In a Proactive Reading you are given information and actionable strategies to completely avoid a problem or threat. Rather than dealing with an unfavorable event you take action so the event never happens. You do this by replacing the negative potential event with a positive actual event. Here you learn the art of karma control.
Once during a short 15 minute reading I flooded a young girl with information about how to change her future. When the timer went off she frowned. “What’s the matter?” I asked, “I didn’t give you what you wanted?” “I thought you were going to tell me my future,” she replied. Suddenly my mind was flooded and I quickly spewed out her current path. I was looking down trying to listen and give what I was getting, and when the information stopped I looked up and was surprised to see that she was crying. “Is that the future you want?” Flew out of my mouth. She shook her head, a silent no, “Then you need to remember everything I told you.”
That reading bothered me for a long time afterward. Why did it play out like that? Wasn’t there a kinder way to deliver the message? Some say that readings happen the way they are meant to, but sometimes that is a cop-out for a reader not having experience or a limited skill-set. After much contemplation I came to realize that I had often done the same thing, automatically switching to a more positive future path and reading that, instead of the current path the person was on. I needed to be clear about what and how I deliver information. So now I give my clients views of the current and best-case paths.
Desiring accuracy to alleviate fears is a natural human desire, but hopefully now you can see that it is not the most effective use of a psychic reading.
