Last year, to clear my Ask Erin inbox, I decided to post a bunch of quick answers to quick questions. I’m going to do that again. These are questions I can answer easily but don’t really warrant their own blog entry. I figure a quick answer now is better than a long answer never. So here we go…
Question: What do you think about Indigo children?
Answer: I’m not big on the whole label thing. Crystal, indigo, purple, polka dots, plaid, it’s all the same to me. Some children are pre-wired to be more aware and connected to their higher selves, and some aren’t. Some kids are incarnating with specific missions and specific purposes that will have a global impact. But you know what? They’ve been doing that for eons. Now we have a pretty label. If you need to categorize your child, that’s your choice.
Question: Do you believe in astrology or horoscopes?
Answer: I am not an expert at astrology and I haven’t investigated it enough to comment on whether I think it is real or not. I suggest you talk to astrology experts and get their take on astrology. I’m a Cancer with Libra rising and a Virgo moon, though. If anyone knows what that means, contact me.
Question: If I have to have an abortion to save my life, is that a sin?
Question: Is levitation possible? If so, do you know how I can do it or who I can learn from? Have you ever done it?
Answer: I have never levitated. Like you I’ve heard tales of this ability. I would start with the people who claim to be able to do it and go from there. Report back when you find out something.
Question: How can I use the law of attraction and the law of detachment at the same time without canceling each other out?
Answer: With the law of attraction you want to get clear on your intention and become a vibrational match for it. The law of detachment is about not being attached to a certain outcome. Think of the story of the man in the flood who is sitting on his roof waiting to be rescued. He wants to be rescued and thinks God is going to save him. People come in a boat and helicopter to save him but he resists their attempts and says, “No no, it’s okay. God will save me.” When he gets to Heaven he complains and God says, “I sent you a boat and a helicopter. What more did you want?” The man was a vibrational match for being rescued but he was attached to that manifesting a certain way (e.g. the mighty hand of God). Cast your intention out upon the water and let the universe decide how best to manifest the details. You might be getting what you asked for and not even be noticing it.
Question: Do you think climate change will be a huge problem people have to deal with in the future?
Answer: Sure. Climates change, people adapt. If you want to know more about this, consult a professional in the field.
Question: Are we ever going to be finished incarnating? When does it stop?
Answer: When you no longer choose to “play the game” it stops. Every incarnation is your choice. Every time you come here, you learn.
Question: Can spirit guides or angels contact you in “human” form?
Answer: I have never experienced this so I can’t say for sure, but I think that in a severe situation an angel can take human form, but not a spirit guide. I think it’s more likely, however, that they urge and nudge an already incarnated human to help you out when you’re in trouble. Read Spirit Guides at Starbucks.
Question: If I know something bad is going to happen to someone but they won’t listen to me, and it happens, am I somehow responsible?
Answer: You are not responsible for anyone’s life. Divest yourself of the idea that you can cause anyone to do anything. People make their own choices. Some may choose to listen to you and some won’t. Having foreknowledge of an event means you can help them, but if they don’t want to listen, there’s nothing you can do. Try not to feel guilty. You did the best you could.
Question: Can you affect physical reality while in a lucid dream? Like turning on a television in a dream causes it to turn on in real life?
Answer: No. When you are lucid dreaming you are in the dream plane, the dream construct, which is inside your mind. However, if you were astral instead of just in a lucid dream, then yes you could affect physical reality here on our plane. Difficult but definitely possible. Astral project responsibly, young man!
Question: How can I get an astral sword like the one you made when you were younger and kicking demon butt?
Answer: Visit my astral store. Due to high demand we’ve just started stocking astral swords. Just teasing. ;) Truthfully, you create your astral sword as an extension of your energy and intent. You’ll need to use willpower and some of your astral essence to form it.
Question: Is it possible to recognize someone in this life as someone you knew in a past life?
Answer: Absolutely. Souls can recognize each other. It’s a beautiful thing really. How will you know? You’ll just know. You may not know who they were to you but that’s not as important as recognizing them. Er, unless you’ve got some karma to work out with them and then you should watch your back.
Question: What is my higher self doing while I’m in this incarnation?
Answer: Watching, guiding, helping, and maybe chortling a little bit.
Question: How can you claim to be psychic when everyone knows all psychics are frauds?
Answer: You again? I thought I got rid of you in my last Quick Answers to Quick Questions.
Question: I need to contact my deceased father. Can you help?
Answer: Yes, book a reading.
Question: Is my mom okay? She died recently.
Answer: I’m sure she’s fine, but if you want to communicate with her through me you can book a reading.
Question: Can you tell my dad on the other side I love him?
Answer: You can tell him yourself. He will hear you more strongly than me because of your connection with him.
Question: My dog recently crossed over. Did he make it?
Answer: I’m sure he’s fine but if you want you can book a reading with me and we’ll find out together.
Question: If I book a reading with you, will you be able to connect me with my deceased (mother, father, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, pet?)
Answer: I’ll try. No guarantee they will come through. But we’ll give it a shot.
Question: Do you need my birth date and the location where I was born to do my reading?
Answer: Not remotely. I don’t even need to know your name. I just need your voice and a photo (or to be in person with you). I connect through the energy of your voice or body. During a reading you can ask about other family members and I do not need their photo or their voice as I will already be connected to YOUR guides. But photos help me tune in and you’ll get a lot more information if you send me a photo of everyone you want to ask about.
Question: Can you tell during a reading if my spouse is cheating on me?
Answer: I’ve noticed the guides have a tendency to not want to reveal concealed information. It’s there for a reason. You may need to take action to discover it on your own. But often they will tell my sitters if they have good reason to suspect something like that is going on.
Question: I don’t want to have kids. Is that alright?
Answer: Yes. Knowing what you want in life is really important. If you don’t want children you shouldn’t have any. You’re not broken.
Question: I really want to talk to my deceased mother. How would I go about doing that and knowing it’s real?
Answer: When we know the person it can be hard to get validation. That’s why mediumship is so great. If you go to a medium and they are able to tell you something they couldn’t possibly have known, you get your validation. When we’re trying to tune in to our own deceased relatives, that’s much harder. You are the only one who can determine if the energy you’re feeling is really them or not. For me, I rely on “the dreams.” These are the ones where you just know their consciousness is really there communicating with you.
Question: I don’t believe in lucid dreaming. It just doesn’t seem possible to be awake in a dream. Can you prove it’s real?
Answer: I find this question so odd I don’t even know how to answer it. It’s like asking me if peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are real. Go have one for yourself and you’ll have your answer. Until then, I wouldn’t go around telling people you don’t believe in lucid dreaming. It just makes you look dumb.
Question: Can you tell me who the spirit is who is throwing stuff at me in my trailer?
Answer: Book a reading.
Question: Is there a reason psychics tend to work independently of each other? Is it jealousy?
Answer: Another odd question. That’s like asking why three surgeons aren’t performing your appendectomy at the same time. You only need one psychic if they’re good. Remember that different psychics have different specialties, though, so find one that specializes in the way you need. Just like you wouldn’t ask your podiatrist to perform heart surgery, so too you shouldn’t go to a medium if you want career advice, and you shouldn’t go to an astrologer if you want to communicate with your deceased mother.
Question: Why do you charge so much for readings? You can still make a good living if you charged only 30% as much as you currently do.
Answer: My prices are based on value and demand. If I cut the reading price to 30% of what it is now, my waiting list would seriously be a year long. Can you imagine needing a reading today and having to wait a year to get it? The most popular psychic mediums have waiting lists that span 3-5 years! There are plenty of psychics in the sea. Find one in your price range. If you feel a specific psychic is what you want, pay them their asking price. If they’re able to charge so much and still get tons of business, chances are they’re worth their price. You get what you pay for and quality counts.
Question: Is Bigfoot real?
Answer: I have no knowledge in this area. But if you see him, let me know.
Question: Will my boyfriend marry me and will my family be well off financially?
Answer: Book a reading. The short answer, though, is that if you want something you’re responsible for making it happen.
Question: Can you help me find my missing Ipod, camera, wedding ring, cat, etc…?
Answer: First you need to know why it got lost in the first place. What lesson are you being taught? Or you need to learn how to keep track of your things better. Seriously, I don’t find missing objects. But there are psychics who specialize in this area. If it were me, I’d start with logic, then move on to intuition, and then prayer. One of them will probably work.
Question: Do you believe in aliens, abductions, UFO’s and all that sort of thing?
Answer: I want to answer this question very badly but the time is not right and there’s a chip in my head preventing me. Someone help me.
Question: How do I know if my loved one crossed over?
Answer: Book a reading. Most of the deceased people I’ve been in contact with are fully crossed over, but I do sometimes encounter someone who is resisting that. Usually in the case of suicide. If I can get them “on the line” so to speak then we’ll know for sure.
Question: My soul mate died recently and I have not felt her energy since she crossed over. I am so sad over her loss and was expecting to feel her around me a lot since I’m very open to that sort of thing. Where is she? Is she lost?
Answer: When we cross over we aren’t automatically able to project our energy back to this physical frequency so easily. It takes skill, time, and patience. I’ve seen guides bring through recently deceased people because they can’t come through on their own just yet. And I’ve also encountered extremely strong spirits who can easily communicate with me shortly after they’ve died. Give it some time. Send her love energy. She’s not likely lost.
Well that’s it for now folks. Feels good to clear out some of those questions!
Be at peace. Be kind. Express love.
