I’ve been talking to a lot of people lately about what I do. It just seems to be that time of year where I’m getting approached a lot. Well, I guess one of the things that happened is that four friends of mine went to see John Edward in one of his San Francisco seminars. I went to one last year, and usually there are literally thousands of people in the auditorium; unfortunately, only a handful of people get read, so it’s more of a demonstration.
My friends were excited to see John, however, when they returned they made sure that I knew they felt I had similar, and at times, more detailed, skills than he. I’ve always felt a bit embarrassed about all of this: mediumship, psychic readings, etc. I’m so pragmatic, that it’s often been something diametrically opposed to my down-to-earth attitude and common sense – it’s always been a juggling act for me in that way. At any rate, they had all had readings from me, and were quite excited about comparing me to John. I’ll be the first to admit, though, that not all readings are spectacular. So, please don’t think that every reading I do is one for movies or books – they’re not. But I do have those that stay deeply imprinted on people’s minds, and that is something for which I am grateful – it is a comfort to them and a confirmation to me that mediumship works.
However, although many people are quite excited at having a reading with a “real” medium, they don’t seem to still understand that being this sensitive is not always easy.
I was having a conversation with someone at work this morning (one of a few people here who know what I do) and she is a bit amazed about the fact that I am a medium. I tried to explain that it’s not some “ommmmm” kind of experience where I feel so relaxed, and blissed out that I live in a constant state of enlightenment or relaxed yogic state. Quite the contrary. I am very high-strung. My natural body and mind state is very hyper – it has been both a bane and a blessing. A bane because it’s very uncomfortable and agitating to feel like that all the time, and a blessing because that very over-sensitivity that makes me feel uncomfortable is the very thing that seems to allow me to tap in. Sometimes my sensitivity is heightened and I don’t even know it.
I want to give an example of what I mean by that. About 10 years ago I traveled to the Caribbean for a long weekend with a friend. We stayed on St. Maarten/St. Martin’s, a Dutch/French island. It was a time when I needed some emotional healing. I wandered off into town at one point, and entered a small metaphysical shop attended by a woman from the states who had just moved there after her husband’s death. This shop was located high on a hillside overlooking the ocean. It was tranquil and peaceful – just what I needed!
She stood behind the counter and then left for the back of the shop. Now, the shop was empty except for myself. I quietly strolled through the little shop looking at jewelry and items in glass cases. Suddenly “WHACK!,” I felt this thrusting push against my back. I was annoyed. Who was this person who was knocking into me and didn’t even have the courtesy to say, “I’m sorry?” I swiftly turned around to confront the person, if nothing but to say, “Excuuusse me….” and …. there was no one there!! I just KNEW I had been knocked from behind. I looked all around – nothing. All was quiet in that store. It was THEN that I realized that perhaps it was ME, not anyone else.
I gazed around and then noticed right behind me a mannequin draped with all kinds of crystals: crystal necklaces of all shapes and sizes, crystal rings, crystal earrings, crystals bracelets, crystals draped on clothing, crystals all over the place!! Hundreds of crystals!! It was THEN that I realized it wasn’t someone who had bumped into me, but rather it was ME who had bumped into the crystal energy!! I had literally been almost knocked over by the force of those crystals. I can actually feel the energy off crystals. I have no idea what those energies are, but there’s something there.
So, you see, my overly-sensitive body had unknowingly picked up on those invisible rays emanating from there. At least, that’s all I could figure out.
But let this be a warning (teasing smile on my face), that if you happen to walk by me, or I walk by you, be careful of what vibes you’re putting out – I may be picking them up and you won’t know it! When it’s said that your moods are catching, it’s true! So, word to the wise: be happy!!!
