A Terrible Experience With A Psychic & How It Helped Me Refine My Character As An Intuitive Guide

Shine Your Light

A few years back, I visited with a psychic.

I don’t know what made me go in there. Maybe it was the neon purple sign in the window, or the catchy price, or it could have been the fact that I was going through a very difficult time and just needed some reassurance.

Nevertheless, I ended up in the chair sitting across from a young woman who was very inviting at first. After a few minutes of sitting with her however, I should have known that she did not have my best interest at heart.

Warning Sign # 1 – When she sat down and started my reading, she had the phone in the middle of the table and she answered it in the middle of our session – not once, but twice.

What a huge red flag! 

Not only did I insult myself by staying, I didn’t notice right then and right there that everything in me was telling me that it wasn’t going to be a pleasant experience.

Towards the end of the reading, she told me that there was something that she saw that was a danger to me, but she couldn’t tell me because it would require more time and more money.

The second huge red flag!

Now I know from experience that working with energy and being an intuitive guide is alot of work, and you want to make sure that you set boundaries, and that you get paid well for what you do – I understand, but if you saw information that could harm someone’s life – why would you not lead with that information? Why would it take you until the end of the session and $100 more to tell someone what you see?

I declined the extra time with her because I was beyond uncomfortable. My body was tense, my spirit was broken, and I just didn’t want to be in the building anymore. She made me feel like shit.

As I started to pack up and leave, and informed her that I would not be sitting with her again, she told me that if I didn’t, my life would get worse, and that thing (curse, negativity, ill will) that she saw for me would stick around, and wouldn’t get any better. She made me feel like my life was doomed, and that she was the only vessel from which my well-being and healing could flow.

I walked out of that place feeling devastated.

I cannot believe that I gave that much power over to that woman, and actually believed what she was telling me. I was that desperate at the time, that it kind of tore my world apart. Because of course – she had the gift, and those who have the “gift” in my mind – always do right by it. Right? WRONG! How silly was it for me to believe that everyone blessed with foresight, strong intuition, and healing abilities would use them for only good?

Once I discovered my gifts of intuition, being able to translate the energy of my spirit guides, connecting to people through my writing, and healing – I was fully aware of what to do with my gifts and what NOT to do with my gifts.

I have seen and experienced first hand what it’s like to have someone have a gift and misuse it, and I would never do that to anyone else.

I guess in a way, the experience helped refine my character. It showed me that I have the power to guide others to well-being or to discourage them. I have the power to uplift another’s spirit or add to their frustration and diminish their light.

For those of you out there that need help, I want you to know that there are honest people that have love, generosity, and care inside that will try their best to see you through a situation, but there are also people out there that will see your vulnerability and milk it for everything it’s worth.

It’s important to honor yourselfeven if you are seeking help or going through a rough period. Don’t stay in any situation that you feel in your gut is not right. 

If you are visiting with a counselor, a healer, an intuitive guide or whatever it may be – they should be respectful of your time and presence, and if they are not – walk away. You should never be made to feel pressured, uncomfortable, or like you have to give something that you are uncomfortable giving.

There are plenty of guides, healers, and spiritual practitioners around that can help you heal and move in the direction of your true nature, but if something doesn’t feel right to you – pay attention.

All messages offered should be uplifting, and never demeaning. Those guides who have your best interest at heart are skilled at dealing with people, and know how to speak to you clearly and respectfully.

I share this story with you so that you can get a sense of some of the experiences that refined my character as an intuitive guide and so that you can always remember that the highest guidance you can get – always comes from inside.

There are going to be times when you need help, and there are plenty of well meaning people out there that are put in your path for a reason, but if something doesn’t feel right to you – pay attention.

There are other options for healing and guidance, and you don’t ever have to be made to feel that there is only one way to your answers, to God, and to the help that you need.

Don’t let anyone make you feel that way – ever.

Part of growing spiritually means learning to listen to yourself,  learning to trust your instincts, and learning that you know more than you think you do.

That experience showed me what to do with my gifts and what definitely NOT to do with my gifts. I would never want anyone leaving my presence feeling like I took something from them, discouraged them, or made them feel like their only path to freedom and joy was through me.

There are many ways to get the answers you seek. Open your heart, listen to your guidance, and trust yourself. There are many healers and helpers out there. Go with the ones that you feel a connection to, and if you don’t resonate with them or feel good about an experience with them – walk away and don’t ever look back.

Guided, Protected, & Safe – Always Listen To Your Intuition

Intuition

A few years back, I went to a park near my house to clear my head. I had my blanket stretched out across the grass, and had brought along a book to read and some soothing music to listen to. I was lying down with my nose in the book when I felt this weird presence behind me.

There was a path right next to the patch of grass that I was lying in, and two people were strolling down the path.

When I turned around to look in their direction, I just felt something very eerie. The gentlemen and the female that was with him didn’t look like they were from around my neighborhood. I had been to that park many times, and had seen many different people, and something about them just didn’t sit right with me.

I calmed myself down and continued to read my book, as they walked past me.

The guy turned around and gave me a cold stare that sent chills down my spine, and then he looked around to see who else was in the park.

At that point, I got very nervous, and something told me that the couple didn’t mean any good. I looked around to see how far my car was parked and to estimate if I could get away, if they came back or tried something.

I saw the couple stop not too far away from where I was, and they kept looking over at me, and then around the park again to see who else was around.

A group of people that were playing basketball was the last group there, and the two waited at the end of the path until the group of people got into their cars and were about to drive off.

My anxiety at that point went into overdrive, and I started to panic. I could get up at that moment and try to make it to my car or I could stick around to see what the two suspicious acting people were up to.

I looked at the car again as the couple kept looking in my direction and waiting for all of the cars to leave the parking lot. I could tell that as soon as the people left, they were planning on doing something – I just didn’t know what. I had my purse with me, my laptop computer, and an expensive phone. Who knows what they were going to do.

I felt a calm come over me as several dozen birds flew to the trees next to me. I can’t explain it, I just felt calmer. I thought one last time about running to my car, but I heard a calm voice say to me, be still.

I don’t know what made me trust the voice, but I did – even though I was terrified.

After the last car pulled out of the parking lot, I heard the sound of a motorcycle nearby.

Would you believe that my hubby had gotten off of work early, and when he noticed I wasn’t home, he went to the spot that he believed I would be?

When I saw his motorcycle pull into that parking lot, I swear to you I felt like the heavens opened up and like angels started singing. I felt completely safe and protected. I knew that my husband wasn’t going to let anything happen to me. I always feel safe around him, and all of my anxiety and tension eased right up.

I smiled from ear to ear as I saw my knight in motorcycle armor walk across the grass towards me.

When he got to me, he said, what’s wrong with a smile on his face, and then looked in the direction of the two people that were standing their staring in my direction.

I said, nothing, you’re right on time, and then told him about the behavior of the two people.

After they saw us interacting, the two people walked away. You would too if you saw how big he is. He is kind of big in stature, but my hubby’s presence is big too, and he has the heart and strength to match it. So I wasn’t worried at all after he showed up.

I could not believe the timing of it. I felt so watched over, protected, and guided, and it was an experience that I will never forget.

I share this story because I have been feeling a little disconnected lately. I forgot how good it feels to recall all the times when I did feel aligned and connected. It works wonders for getting the energy and focus moving in a different direction.

If you feel stuck, try it. Try to recall the moments when you did feel aligned and connected. Once you start to change your thoughts, you’ll start to recall more and more moments, and it will change your mood completely.
