I'm afraid you'll tell me when I'll die
As you can imagine, my line of work evokes different reactions when asked the typical party question: "So, what do you do for a living?" Most often, people are intrigued by what I do, and we spin off into a wide array of interesting topics.
But there are those who, once they find out what I do, avoid me like the bubonic plague. The most common fear that arises is that I will tell them when they will die. My response is always the same: I have never been given the exact day and time when someone is going to pass.
I did not get into this line of work to focus on death, but rather on how to maximize our time here on earth. Before each session, I ask that I be made a clear and accurate channel so that I may deliver messages that are for the highest good of my clients. These messages can range from detecting energetic or emotional blocks to discussing medical concerns that need attention, to connecting people with their highest purpose.
With the help of my guides, I focus on what will make people live more productive and happier lives. I particularly like when I am given medical information because it usually comes in the form of symptoms and suggested remedies.
For example, I was giving a read to a woman in her early fifties at one of my psychic parties. I experienced a tightness in my chest, and I told her she needs to get her heart checked right away.
"I don't have heart issues," she responded.
I gently urged her to go to the doctor just to humor me. I received a call from her niece three weeks later. The doctors had found 50% blockage in two of her arteries.
I like to call my guides "helper bees." They tend to focus on what will help people act and feel their best. Many people come to me simply to be better at things they are already good at. They see me as their "intuitive cheerleader."
There is far too much living left to do to focus on death. All we have is this moment, so make the most of it. And, if you really, really want to know when you are going to pass, I will simply ask and deliver the answer I receive.
