Doing Damage Control

A lot of the readings I do for clients fall under the category of “damage control.” What happens is a person has gone to a psychic for a reading and was told something really horrible was going to happen them. So they reach out to me for a reading and ask me if it’s true.

Examples I’ve heard:
“The psychic told me I was going to cheat on my husband in 2 years and we would get a divorce. I don’t want to cheat on my husband. I love him. Tell me I’m not going to do that to him!”

“This psychic told me I was going to meet someone named Susan and she would be my soul mate. There is a Susan at work but I’m really not attracted to her and she’s not very nice. I don’t want to be with her the rest of my life. Can the guides find me a new soul mate?”

“The psychic told me I would have a huge windfall of money coming to me and that I didn’t need to get a job. I’m running out of money right now. When do you think the windfall is coming?”

“The psychic told me there is an evil entity attached to my family and it’s targeting me right now and bringing me really bad luck. What can I do to get rid of it?”

There are people out there who call themselves psychics who don’t know the first thing about ethics or how to give a reading. They just go into business and start impacting people’s lives with their nonsense and drivel.

A proper and ethical psychic would never do what the psychics in these scenarios have done.

Control, disempowerment, instilling fear in your clients… the dark side are they.

A professional intuitive should help you see your options and tell you where each choice leads. Then if you don’t like the outcome, you have time to adjust your course and make changes. No outcome is set in stone.

In the case of the woman who was told she was going to cheat on her husband, I told her, “If you don’t want to cheat on your husband you won’t cheat on your husband. It’s as simple as that.”

The guy who was told that Susan was his soulmate was really done a huge disservice. Every Susan he meets becomes a potential soul mate and every other person is immediately discarded in his mind. He will miss out on a great relationship by narrowing his search to only women named Susan.

I’ve had many clients who were told they were going to “come into money.” And literally they quit their job or never get one because they want to believe the psychic is right. Sometimes I ask them, “Where exactly do you think this magical money is going to come from?” And one lady said, “The psychic said I was going to win the lottery and a Prince from Europe was going to marry me.” She is still waiting for her prince to come.

It’s damaging to do that to people. Sure, they might be really excited to hear about this windfall of money, and they probably thank the psychic repeatedly for telling them the news, but when the “prediction” doesn’t happen they are left with bills to pay and mouths to feed.

The worst are the con artists who give you the “entity” or “curse” story. I had one client tell me the psychic said to pay her $18,000 or she, her mother and son would die in three days. She came to me frantically to ask how she was going to get the money to pay the psychic! When I told her she was not cursed and no one was going to die I could tell she wanted to believe me, but she was too scared. She wrote to me later and told me she paid the psychic “just in case.” Scary.

This is what you need to know about reaching out to a professional intuitive: The ethical intuitive will give you information that you can use to help you get what you desire and have the life you want. She will not make predictions about what is definitely going to happen and when.

A good intuitive can see what happens on the road you’re walking and give you insight and information about what you will encounter, but you are not locked onto that path if you don’t want to be.

In fact one of the very best reasons to get a reading is to find out what’s on the path ahead of you so you have time to diverge from that path and take a new one that is more to your liking.

A proper psychic won’t tell you who you’re going to marry. He will tell you what qualities in a person will end up fulfilling you the most and how to find a person who matches those qualities.

A proper psychic won’t tell you when you’ll get a raise; she will tell you what you must do to get the raise when you want it.

It has shocked me over the years how many of my readings are damage control, fixing the wounds other people have inflicted. But I am grateful for the opportunity to divest my clients of their fear and help them find their power and make choices that will lead to a happy and fulfilling life.
