What Kind of Psychic Are You?

Do Psychics Give the Kind of Readings that They’d Want to Receive Themselves?

there are typesWhat kind of psychic are you?  Someone asked me recently what kind of psychic I was—and I was taken back a moment by the question because I hadn’t given much thought to “types” of psychics before.  On my way to pick up a Chinese dinner take-out order this evening I thought of that question again, thinking that we must bring our own personality to the process in some way.

I don’t know much about other psychics really and so psychic “types” never occurred to me; which is funny if you think about it really.  I give readings and teach what I’ve learned through the process of taking classes and communicating with my own “guides” and that keeps me so on-my-toes that I never go to a psychic for a reading myself.

But if I did, I’d want to have a reading like the kind of reading that I give.  And I know that sounds highly egotistical and I’ve just risked you thinking so from typing that sentence just now.  But maybe every psychic would say the same thing because don’t we all sort of give to others what we ourselves would want to receive? Anyway, I was asked if I was a “counseling psychic” and maybe its a silly question but, “Isn’t that the only kind?”  But again maybe that’s just me–my own viewpoint.

I like bottom lines and if I went to a psychic myself, that’s what I’d be looking for.  I like to know what are the causes of feelings and experience.  and I want to know why, why, why and how to handle whatever may be troubling me at any given time.  I go to my inner guide for help problem-solving and for ‘splainen—pardon the slang.  I want to know if I need to change something or if I’m on course  [on the right track]. I want additional insights and inspirations to my concerns.  That’s why I turn inward for a “reading” in the first place–its what motivates me seek communication with higher mind.

Also, I may turn inward because of a desire to tune into the energy of another human and see if I can understand them; or I want to connect with a loved one on the other side; or I want to insight on a pending decision.  At different times I tune inward for different reasons–those are a few.   And I suppose that influences the type of readings that I give  to others–that’s the kind of psychic that I am.  Predictions?  Yeah, those come but mostly as part of the explanation to the problem or issue at hand.   I don’t look for fortune telling per se’ when I turn inward for a reading; mostly I need help–not a prediction.

I think maybe some folks like predictions because then they can kick-back and wait for it to happen; but of course it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that it doesn’t work that way.  Anyway, maybe there’s a list somewhere out there in big ocean of cyper-space of the various “types” of psychics.  I’ve never really thought about it.

That’s  the trouble with thinking of course; lots of times it results in a blog post like this one! Oh and my Chinese dinner was great by the way— I do love shrimp sauce and ginger dressing on my salad.  Yum!   I’m that kind of psychic too! 🙂

What Should We Know About Our Moods? The 2 of Swords Answers!

I asked about moods—what should we know about our own moods?  That was the question and for insight and guidance, I turned to the tarot.  This time I thought to use a deck that I don’t often use, The Connolly deck.  Just look at the image of the 2 of Swords!  That’s the card I drew.  It looks like those two guys are just standing there not knowing what to do—almost as if they’re saying which one do we choose?

Swords are often associated with thinking and the 2 of Swords about choice.  I so love how these things work! I ask about moods and what we should know and I get the card that represents CHOICE and more to the point NON-CHOICE.

What I’m inspired to say next is that the insight is this:  if we don’t actually make a choice, we’re drifting and anything can happen with our mood.  The first thing that comes along can trigger us into some wild or unexpected response.

However, moods seem to be about choice—at least as far as the information that this tarot card is bringing us.  Pick a sword, but for heaven’s sake… PICK!  Before you get stabbed by someone else who has a sword.  Well, that’s probably too graphic but it could be better said this way.  Without making a choice about what our mood will be—such as pensive, contemplative, quiet, peaceful, giggly, grateful, or you name it—we will bump up against someone else who has chosen a sword or made a decision about their mood and we can become influenced in some way.  Maybe someone has unconsciously (or even consciously) chosen an anger mood—they have their sword.  And we without our own who are still standing there not haven chosen are exposed to the mood of others.

Bottom line is to remember to choose a mood.   “Today I choose to be grateful for everything—no matter what it is.”  Or “Today I choose to harbor a mood of kindness to guide me through my day.”

The problem with our mood comes when we have not made a choice—that’s what the 2 of Swords is showing us here in answer to the question.

What we should know about our moods is that we should choose one@!  Choosing a mood helps us to be aware of our thoughts and to maintain that awareness.

The oracle seems to be saying, what mood do you want silly?  So choose it already!  (Then use awareness to maintain it.)
