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:
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.
