Let’s review some information given in Part 1. Psychic Messages...As a recipient of a message/reading, you do have responsibilities.
HOW DO YOU AS THE RECIPIENT DEAL WITH A PSYCHIC MESSAGE?
Let’s review some information given in Part 1. As a recipient of a message/reading, you do have responsibilities.
The purpose of this write-up is to provide some basic information about the positive actions that I generally refer to as “life-affirming actions” a recipient can take and a little bit about the etiquette involved with being a psychic. It focuses on three areas: (1) how to maximize the benefit of the message; (2) how to get the best results as the recipient of a message; and (3) what to do if you (the recipient) are given a negative or distressful message.
Hopefully, the information presented in Part 1 has established enough ground information to allow us to focus on two important short-comings the recipient may encounter when receiving a psychic message; i.e., (a) the vague message or reading that is so broad as to be meaningless; and (b) the message that is of a negative nature – basically the way the message is stated has a negative structure.
VAGUE OR NEBULOUS MESSAGES
First, let’s deal with a message you liked receiving at the time, but later you think about the outcome only to find yourself at a loss for action (life-affirming things you can do).
Sometimes a seemingly positive message has a built in trap. The trap is when you forget that the psychic gives you possible/probable futures and that you have a responsibility to focus your energy to make it a life-affirming action toward helping the message to manifest. Another trap is when you treat the message as if it were fatalistic; when you attribute the message to fate, it generally means that you give up your free-will. This is also called a “self-confirming prophecy.” For example,
So, one of the warnings about a wonderful or really good message is that the psychic is seeing a probable event in your future. You still need to take life-affirming action.
Point of reference: I use the term “life-affirming” action a lot. When it involves the receipt of a message, it means a couple of things:
First, that the practitioner is providing a message formatted in such a way that it encourages a positive outlook. For example, the message giver says, “I see a terrible car crash around you and it involves serious injuries.” Can this message be presented in a life-affirming manner/format? Well yes! For example, the message giver can say, “I am picking up some mechanical problems with your automobile that could result in physical injuries.”
But what are you the message receiver responsible for? You (the recipient) have several life-affirming options; they are…(1) you put yourself, your family, your car in a circle of White Light for protection and you ask your spirit guides to protect you and others; (2) you should be sure that you and your passengers wear your seatbelts at all times, especially on short trips; and (3) you take your car in for a full mechanical inspection. A couple of actions such as these can change the outcome, e.g., avoid an accident and/or avoid physical injuries.
NEGATIVE AND DISTRESSING MESSAGES/READINGS
Should a practitioner only give pleasurable and joyful messages? The fact is there are times it is the practitioner’s responsibility to be honest and realize that their message may sound blunt or harsh.
Because the example of a serious car accident in the recipient’s life that potentially involves serious physical injury is harsh, can you, the message receiver, do anything about it? Do you automatically have to accept it as a factual event? First, ask the psychic (message giver) to help you with self protection. Also, ask, “what can I do to prevent this accident and potential injury?” The important thing to remember is that most negative or distressful future events can be changed. As the message recipient, remember the practitioner is getting a potential outcome, not a fatalistic/fate based outcome. You can change it. The fact is, if you get a really positive message, you don’t have to accept it either; or you can modify it in many ways. To use the move to Florida message again – you like the idea, but you have a career that is really important to you so you mentally decline the offer; thank the spirits for the offer to move to Florida, however, you have decided to stay right where you are. Keep in mind that no matter what the message, you have options:
Now, if you believe you have serious problems, seek professional earth-plane help or go to a second psychic who is not affiliated with the first one. If it involves a medical or psychological problem, go to a medical doctor or psychologist/psychiatrist. The Internet is a wonderful resource for finding groups that can help an individual with any type of problem…health, money, abusive spouse, rape, post traumatic stress disorder, etc.
To continue, I have gone to psychic/faith healers, but I set a ceiling on what I will pay them. And, if their psychic message is about a health problem, I see a regular doctor and, as needed, specialists.
Second, a most important rule is…be cynical when any psychic or medium or witch starts offering/selling you their expensive services. The bottom-line is you are still responsible for your life. Don’t throw away your personal energy (free-will) or money.
My third rule is when you go to a psychic or medium, ask them to focus on life-affirming actions and joyful things in your life.
Here is a big tip: Before you go to see a medium, psychic, or witch or even plan on participating in a séance, take 15 minutes to write down questions you want addressed/answered or that you want help with from spirit guides. The interesting thing is if your mind and energy are focused then you will get answers without having to ask.
In conclusion, here is a message that I use whenever giving or receiving messages. I highly recommend that you too use it, both when you are giving a message and when/if you are receiving a message.
Close your eyes and calmly affirm…
