I don’ t feel “spiritual.” What does that mean anyway? I am a good person. I try to be nice to everyone unless they seem mean and then maybe I’m more indifferent. I take others’ feelings into consideration before my own. OK, not always but usually. I’ll use the plate with the chip in it or drink water if there’s not enough milk. I’ll eat the burned steak so you don’t have to. See how thoughtful I can be?
But when it comes to being a psychic medium, am I supposed to exude some sort of specialness? Should I look mysterious or have my own ambient theme music? I don’t call myself “Dream Catcher Moon Fairy” or anything like that. There are a lot of people who, when they are looking for a psychic to do a reading, want someone who looks the part. I will admit to wearing angel wing earrings and a chakra necklace. Not because I’m trying to look the part, but I really love them and they’re just part of my jewelry collection.
When I first started learning about angels and guides, Ascended Masters and such, there was a language everyone used. “Does that resonate with you?” was one of the sayings I heard a lot. “Let go of that which does not serve you.” “Break down the blocks in your life.” I’ve never talked like that in my life. I’m still the same person, why would I start talking like that now? Because it sounds spiritual? Does it sound like the words are coming from some higher source? Maybe. But you would probably hear me say “Do you understand that?” or “If you want to change your life, you have to move in a different direction.” Not woo-woo, I know but it’s just the way I see it.
If you’ve looked for a psychic online you’ve seen websites with all the images of stars and planets, ghostly figures walking into the sky.Ooooh, that person must be really close to spiritual energy. Honestly, at the beginning of my psychic career I did that too. I wanted to be perceived as someone who was “otherworldly” but it felt phony to me. Now I showcase my art because it’s colorful and represents who I am. I do have a couple of photos of Angel Tarot cards on there, but I figure some people might not know what they are.
I do ground and protect myself before every reading. I do clear afterwards but I don’t have a paragraph on my website about my housekeeping procedures. My spirituality comes from within and it’s a personal thing. So if you’re looking for a psychic reading, look past all the bells and whistles and see if you feel comfortable with the person. Do you feel a connection? What’s more important, a sparkly shawl with moons all over it, or a genuine smile? Let me know in case I have to dig my sparkly shawl out of the basement.
