There comes a time when you really have to take a look at what it is you’re doing with your life. That time came for me when I was 35 years old; I’d spent many years in the corporate healthcare environment and expected that would be my career through my retirement. However, at 35 I was told something very different. This information didn’t come from within, nor did it come from a career advisor.
Ultimately, it came from a psychic.
It could have come from a fortune cookie, a dream, or a drunken bender; any of those I would’ve taken more seriously than a psychic. Be that as it may, a psychic it was. I paid for psychic readings maybe a half dozen times in my life up to that point. I believed to a certain extent we all had psychic abilities, but psychic readings were for fun or entertainment — certainly not for changing your entire career path.
I’ll never forget her words. “What is your question?”
“I don’t have a question.”
She asked me again, “What is your question?”
I responded in the same manner, “I don’t have a question.”
“Sure you do, that’s really why I’m here.”
That was when the tears began to flow. I was shaking inside, I had no idea how my life
was going to change but I knew it would. My question was how much of the activity I was experiencing in the house was about me. She smiled and patted my hand, “All of it, don’t you understand?” The reality was I didn’t understand. I had no idea. All I knew was that I was living in a home with spirit activity. I experienced the majority of it, but others experienced it as well. She explained that spirit was so very excited from the moment I first stepped into the home that I could see, I could hear, I could feel their presence. She went on to explain that I had a tremendous gift and with that gift an incredible responsibility. She described my abilities as being stronger than most. She explained that within 10 years I would be working exclusively doing readings, séance, mediumship and ultimately missing persons. My head began to swim. It made no sense. It was crazy talk, and I think my direct quote was something along the lines of “There is no f’n way!”
I guess I was so left-brained, so logical in my thought process, that the concept of using my intuitive abilities to help others was beyond comprehension. She explained that it was quite a calling to work with people in this way, to give them closure.
She called it a blessing.
I have to say she was right; she is right. It is a blessing that I get to deliver love and messages of hope from the other side to the loved ones left behind. I get to facilitate healing. And on the rare occasions when I have to deal with difficult or painful information, I know that what I’m giving the client is ultimately peace of mind, knowledge, and closure. It is a blessing. I’m blessed every day. Here I am serving people in a way I never imagined possible, feeling happier than I have ever been, and with more peace in my life than I could imagine at the age of 35.
If you find your life not working for you, or something just doesn’t fit, then maybe it’s time for a psychic reading or fortune cookie or just some good old-fashioned introspection. When you’re walking your path, the one that serves your spirit, you find yourself in the flow of joy and abundance.
