Well, why wouldn’t we? Say you meet someone, ask what they do for a living, and they say, "I’m a psychic." Wouldn’t you take a few steps back and then shut down all thoughts in an effort to protect yourself? Well, me too.
Short story:When I first started doing this work (because I was told I did not have a choice – another story), my friends, acquaintances, neighbors, everyone who knew me as "normal," would ask what I was up to and I would flush, totally embarrassed and speechless. I feared the judgment. Isn’t that paradoxical? The "psychic" fearing judgment.
What I understand now – and this is good for the public to know – is that I do NOT "read" people I am just meeting, or anyone else who has not given me the permission to do so, for that matter. It is against a sort of energetic code of ethics. Plus, if I "read" everyone I came into contact with, I’d be physically, mentally, emotionally drained! That is why this is my JOB. It would be just like coming home from work and doing the same work at home, at the grocery store, at church. I’d jump out a window! (Luckily I live in a ranch-style house).
The other thing is that I am almost always connected spiritually. I wake up in the morning, clear, pray, express my gratitude and connect. I am constantly checking in with my angels, guides, spirits. I know the difference between my ego thoughts and that of my Higher Self (Holy Spirit, God, etc.). I know what darkness feels like, and I know how to protect myself against it. I also know that we are ALL LOVE, made from love, and so whenever I come into contact with any human being, animal, even plant (!), I ask that I only see their light, their beauty, who/what they are through God’s eyes ("God’s glasses" – thank you, Cyndi Dale).
Long and short is that I don’t call myself "psychic." I call myself intuitive, a teacher, a mentor, a guide, a bridge, a connector. My job is not to take advantage of or read into other people’s garbage – and, out of respect for psychics, those with strong ethics do not do this either. I do not have time for that, nor do I want to see it. My job is to spread light. Again, call me a hippy, but that is literally why I am here: to teach and to spread light. No labels, no superficiality, no drama, just light and beauty. And we are ALL SO BEAUTIFUL.
With that, have a beautiful day, week, year, LIFE! I am sending you love, always.
