Prophecies and Religious Views

I’ve been thinking of writing a blog post for a while about fear and religion and how it fits in with what I do.  Those of you who have been clients for a long time, know the difference between a Fortune Teller and a Psychic and Medium and what I do.  When I connect with your energy, I can usually see where you have been, where you are and where you are headed.  I tell you what direction you are headed in and I assist you to make your own choices based on the path you are on.  You are either happy with the path and continue on, or you are not happy with it and make adjustments to change things.  It is so very rare when I see something for someone that seems like it cannot be adjusted.

I often have discussions with people about this.  Or maybe I should say, I often have people tell me that what I do is an “evil” thing that must be messages from Satan.  When I had my computer fixed in the fall, the fellow that fixed it deduced what I did based on the things that were on my computer.  He shared a scripture with me that included phraseology that said “our loved ones do not prophesize and they do not know what will happen in our future, if you get these messages then it is coming from Satan”.  I put this in quotes, but I am sure I haven’t quoted the scripture exactly, this is just what I got out of what he said.

I thought about what he said for a moment, and I agree with him except the part about coming from Satan.  I guess I’d never given it a lot of thought, but when loved ones come in to a reading to speak to you, they don’t tell you what is going to happen to you, they don’t come across as fortune tellers or try to tell you what to do.  For the most part they come to say hi and let you know that they are okay.  Your guides do the same thing ~ they guide you, they don’t tell you what you must do.  Your own intuition works this way too.  Ever have a feeling you shouldn’t go to a certain place, or take a certain route home, and then later found out that there was an accident on the road you avoided.  You weren’t told “you are going to be in an accident”, you were told, “take a different road”.  That is how a reading with me works.  You get signs and guideposts and an idea of where you are headed, what the road might look like and a ballpark idea of how long it might take you to get there ~ what you do with the information is up to you.

I just got an the following email last Friday:

From: Brad Daley [mailto:gcanuck2@gmail.com]
Sent: Friday, January 20, 2012 10:41 AM
To: tamaraha@telus.net
Subject: Witchcraft 

Deu 18:10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

Deu 18:11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Deu 18:12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

You are bringing your followers under a curse. Expect judgement.

Wow.  Believe it or not, I get this a lot.   There is a TON of fear in this email and I think it’s a shame.  I can pretty much say for certain that I don’t do “witchcraft”.  I do however work with energy.  Working with energy is more science and quantum physics than witchcraft.  Not that I have an opinion on witchcraft either way ~ I just don’t know much about it, and I do know that energetically speaking ‘what comes around goes around’ so I leave it up to you to decide for yourself what this means.

I am kind of getting off topic as far as my first sentence above was written, but I guess one of the (many) points I want to make is that a lot of what is written in religious scripture is written in a way to disempower people.   Just as a psychic that is inexperienced or not working with the light may disempower you, so may certain religious words.  There is as much in the religious scriptures about positive, uplifting prophecy and people speaking and listening to God, as there is about negative “prophets”.

If you ask certain highly religious people they will tell you that the bible was written by God.  When you ask, “did God take human form and pick up a quill and ink, and pen it himself”, they say, “well, no, he channeled it through his prophets”.  Then they will continue on to tell you that prophecy is negative (see above email).  Only my opinion, but this seems pretty contradictory to me.   We can all work with Divine Love and Light, or we can chose to work with the darker or more negative energies that are out there.

 

Working with/as a Psychic Advisor

Is your psychic working with the light, or do they have their own agenda?

There are some psychics out there who try to control your life.  They will tell you what is going to happen and then tell you that there is nothing you can do about it, that it is preordained.  Some of these people thrive on control;  some just don’t know any better.  They get so caught up in the fact that they can see things, they don’t realize that a part of having this gift and working with the light is to empower people.  When they tell people that things are beyond their control, it is a form of disempowerment.

Most of us who were born with this gift have a deeper understanding of how it works.  We have a true desire to help people, not to control them.  Most of us work with the light.  Some work with darker forces though.  Most of us psychics working with the light, know that there are many paths one can take throughout their lifetimes and that it is up to you to decide what experiences you wish to have.  I believe I was given this gift to empower you to make your own choices, I have no desire to live your life for you.

There are a lot of online courses and exercises that teach you how to develop your own psychic abilities.  A lot of them are very good, here’s an example. Developing your psychic abilities.  The thing that most of them do not teach you is that you need to think of why you might want to develop these abilities.  Do you want to help others, or do you want to control others?  Psychic abilities are great, however, they are also a huge responsibility.  There are many people that have readings with me and base life decisions on what comes through for them.  It is important that if you do decide to do readings for others, you always keep in your heart that it is for the highest and best good of all.  When this is new to you and you realize that your own gifts are coming through, it can be easy to get caught up in the fact that you can see things for people and want to blow their minds with your ability to prophesize their futures for them.

The thing is, you also need to realize that people need to go their own way.  Just like you, they are here to have experiences.  We all are.  It is not always a good thing to try and see so much for someone that you take away the experience of living.  As psychics, we are here to guide and to help.  We work with your teachers, guides and higher selves to help you along.  Your guides do not tell you what to do, they put things in your path that might assist you if you decide for yourself to look into it further.   That is what psychics are for also.  To guide you.

As a medium I can often also connect with loved ones that have crossed on.  Your loved ones won’t tell you what to do either.  When they come through in a reading, they come through to let you know that they are there for you, they are safe and they are still with you.  They do not desire to live your life for you, they just want to support you.

Just remember that when working with the light, you are doing things for a person’s highest and best good.  It is never in someone’s highest and best good to disempower them by telling them that there is nothing they can do.  Encourage them to follow their inner light to make the right choices.

Happy 2012 Everyone

Just a quick update on my status because its been so long since I have done a post.

As of yesterday, I am snowed in.  What that means is I have a little extra time on my hands to do some phone psychic readings.

The majority of my plans have been changed for the week to include a lot of time at home.  Most of the places I would go around here involve using my car and its hard to drive a sunfire safely in a foot and a half of snow.

So, if you’ve been holding off because you know January is one of my busy times, you don’t need to.  I’ve got more time for you in the next few days.

Love Tamara
