Have any of you ever gone to a Psychic or had your fortune told. Or shuffled the Tarot cards? The word psychic, comes from the Greek psychikos—"of the mind, mental". Also called sensitive, a psychic is a person who professes an ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses through extrasensory perception (ESP), or is said by others to have such abilities.
I have this incredible urge to have a reading just for fun but have no idea where one finds such a person. A Google search gave me a bunch of names here in my city, but how does one go about choosing a psychic.
My boss mentioned to me that I can't let things just slide off my back, that I was more sensitive than the others who work for her and why I was picking up such toxic vibrations more than others. Yup, that's me. I can pick up small nuances that others just don't feel or see. It might be called intuition, second sense, a gut feeling, ESP, a Wooooo moment.
I've known this for most of my life and yet cannot put a finger on why I can sense stuff that others don't. For many years I taught nursing and so many times I would be compelled to go see one of my students just as she was dropping a patient (we caught them together). I will phone my son and hubby just as they are pulling in the drive as if there was some signal they were emanating to let me know they were near. And as a mom, I would wake up seconds before my babies awoke as if I picked up some vibration from their room.
After my dad and mom died there were just too many little nudges that they were still around to discount. I remember driving along the highway on my way to bury my dad's ashes (I had the canister in the car). It was pouring rain—I mean torrential downpour. As I got close to my exit, I glanced over to change lanes and swore it was my dad driving the car beside me. At that exact moment, the sun came out and stayed hot and sunny for the rest of the afternoon. Shivers!
I haven't quite got a grasp on what this all means. Can some people just "see" like the Ghost Whisperer? Can this stuff be dangerous or just a curiosity for a laugh and fun time. A mystery which maybe I should ignore.
Us Canadians (right Gilly) believe we can get almost anything in the States. Do you think there might be a psychic in Chicago? Are any of you game?
Weird. I know. It's a strange day.
