If you have a history, then you must have a story. Psychics are here to stay; they have been around since the beginning of time. They are in the bible as well. I went to fortune teller years ago, and she knew more about me than I would want anyone to know. It is not the job that I would pick for myself, but I would love to know how they do what they do.
I actually do believe in psychics. Since I was a child, my entire family has felt, without a doubt, that my mother is psychic. I also have had a psychic reading done over the phone, and while some of the readings were very general, I have had a few that were so specific it made my jaw drop!
My two cents here comes from a friend that has now passed on. My friend Rubin taught me about sorcery, magic, and witchcraft and was also an incomplete quadriplegic. He had full tactile sense but could not move his body from the neck down. Anyway, Rubin had been in touch with his magical energies early in life, he was his spinal injury occurred at 12 years old. So he had taught himself to read and write with a stick in his mouth, and other very amazing things as a quad. But he amazed me, that he had been doing psychic readings (his mediums of choice were crystal ball and psychic auras) to earn a living since 13. Ed (for we were friends, less than a mentor or student) once said to me, when I was anxious about what I should do with my life, career, college etc. These were his words, ” All people have jobs that they are drawn to do, choose to do, get paid to do, and even are forced into doing. But the job you are born to do will never stop being your job. Since I was born with the gift of sight, call it sorcery, witchcraft, soothsaying, or satanic powers from hell (Ed loved his theatrics), it is what I do for a living. I am a worker employed by the magical powers that be. You don’t see Gandalf the wizard taking part-time jobs as a busboy, but he does do fireworks shows for hobbits on their birthdays.
Wise people and magically gifted souls always have their fall back positions, but their job is to be that magical person for their community. Therefore there is no shame in taking material gain from it, as long as you understand that the 3 fold or 10 fold laws, apply directly to your credit cards and bank accounts. Should you be practising tomfoolery rather than being a legitimate seer. Do not ever use psychic powers just to manipulate or steal from those that come for your help; it will burn you. But not using your powers to earn your keep and pay the bills, well even black magic know that is just stupid and evil. Don’t say you practice magic and then tell me you can’t get a job. Talk to the Goddess about your needs, hell pray to Satan if you want, but use magic or don’t. Fence sitters are taking bread out of the mouths of talented witches and wizards everywhere. Love is the will; pay your toll at the door. Love is the Law.” I miss you, Rubin.
