Are Intuitive Readings Scary?

I allow my intuition to lead my path.
~~Manuel Puig

“I’d never have a reading,” he said.

“Why,” I asked.

“It’s too scary.  I don’t want to know what’s going to happen in the future. I don’t want anyone to tell me something scary.”

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this.  I know there are people out there who focus on predicting what is going to happen.  But remember, you are the most important person in creating your life and you choose your actions.  Given that, if I choose to overeat and never exercise, it’s likely I’ll develop health problems as I age.  So I choose to eat well and exercise. Of course, I definitely consider chocolate on my healthy eating list.

This is how I approach an intuitive reading. An intuitive reading or psychic reading should never scare you.  I’m always hesitant to use the word psychic because for many people it conjures up negative images. (Though changing my name to MADAME GISELLE might be fun.) A “good” intuitive reading should help give you a clear picture about the truth around an issue in the present moment.  Sometimes it might also explore how you got to this present moment.  But, what I believe is most important is the reading should suggest steps you can take to move forward related to the issue.  Instead of scaring you, an intuitive reading should provide you some tools and bring you a sense of peace.

Morning Routine

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. ~~ Steve Jobs

I’m not the most disciplined person when it comes to my morning routine.  For that matter, I’m someone who can get off track easily, so I have to work to be disciplined in most areas of my life. Given this struggle, my routine is a bit variable, besides the normal dressing and grooming, there are a few elements I try to keep in my routine.  These include a yoga stretch or core workout and a short mediation and prayer, sometimes it takes 30 to 45 minutes, other days it can be a five minute stretch and three minute meditation.  I follow this up with a good cup of coffee and I pull a card from one of my oracle decks.  The card is my way of getting some additional guidance for the day.  Last February, I was debating whether to apply for a scholarship for the Writers’ Workshop at Chautauqua.  I figured I was such a long shot, it wasn’t worth the effort, yet I kept feeling like I should fill it out.   While sipping my coffee, I pulled an oracle card, as I wondered about the long application.  The word on the card was TRUST.  It was about trusting ones intuition.  I followed the pull I was feeling and completed the application.  As I mailed it off, I smiled to myself thinking, it just might be possible.  In twelve days I leave for Chautauqua. I put aside my logical doubts, trusted my intuitive nudges and was rewarded with the scholarship.  When I’m having trouble listening to these nudges, oracle cards help me sort through the fog.  Oracle cards are a great way to tap into your inner wisdom.  If you’re interested in learning to use oracle cards to tap into your intuition, consider joining our class Oracle Readings…Connecting with Inner Wisdom on July 14th.
