The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I’ve had a few jarring experiences lately that I’d like to share with you.

I was doing a reading for a gentleman who asked some questions about a relationship he was in and the visions that I received were far from favorable. I saw a pretty negative outcome if he chose a certain route to take, and I just couldn’t bring myself to tell him the bad news. What if I was wrong? Maybe I was misinterpreting the information.

For the life of me, I kept trying to figure out other ways to interpret the information and finally I referred him to my brother, thinking I was having an off day. He contacted my brother and within minutes, Michael called to say “Sis, this doesn’t look good for him at all.”We started comparing notes and realized we were seeing the very same visions. If the man proceeded with the plan he had in mind, the results were not at all what he wanted.

Michael shared his information with him and the man contacted me immediately to see if I would check to see if it was accurate. I told him it was exactly the visions I got and the man was really upset. Could I look again and see if the outcome was different? I told him the same vision kept coming to me and I felt terrible that it had such a hurtful outcome for him.

The man consulted a different psychic who told him something different and that made him happy. Now here we are, three weeks later and the results Michael and I saw are starting to happen.

A week later, a female client asked about surgery she is having soon and I froze. I could barely get through her questions when it occurred to me that I might get negative answers to her questions about her health and the surgery itself, and I just did not want to go there. I told her I could not do the reading because there was no guarantee that I would see all positive outcomes.

I wish people understood that we don’t always see positive outcomes. This week someone asked me about her young niece who is in the hospital. She asked if she will be fine, or if she’s dying and I saw that she is dying. Of course I didn’t want to tell her that her young niece is dying, but I remembered the words from an old psychic many years ago. He said:

“Echo, when you receive information about someone, it’s not for your benefit, it’s for theirs, so give it to them. If someone asks a question, it’s our job to give them the information.”

Another experience comes to mind of a friend of mine, many years ago, who asked about the health of his family. The pictures that came into my mind were awful. I saw his sister in the hospital with both legs in casts. His older brother in a wheelchair (a brother who was currently walking just fine), his mother having a stroke and at the end of the year, my friend standing at his younger brother’s funeral. All of that would take place that year. The pictures were pretty ominous to say the least. I went back and forth with how much information to share with him, not wanting to overwhelm him, but he reassured me he could handle whatever I was seeing.

At the end of that year, I was standing next to him at his younger brother’s funeral and he told me everything that I had “predicted” came true for each member of his family. He thanked me for being honest with him and said that he was glad he was mentally prepared to go through all of it. The one picture I did not see was that my friend eventually committed suicide from alcoholism.

So what is the point of this blog? I guess to educate the public that when you ask a psychic a question, you need to be prepared to hear anything. Not just the good stuff. You need to ask yourself if you’re ready to hear the negative answers as well. I think of all the spouses who have asked me if their partner is cheating on them, or pregnant moms who want to know if there are problems with their un-born babies. People with cancer asking if they will survive. A very close friend asked me if he was going to survive from lung cancer and when I saw he was actually in his dying process, I couldn’t bring myself to tell him the truth. A month later, his wife called to say he was in hospice and wanted to see me. I asked him if I should have told him where this was all headed and he said he was glad I didn’t.

Psychics don’t just see the good. We see the good, the bad and the ugly. So the next time you are thinking of asking a psychic advice about something in your life, ask yourself if you’re ready to hear anything, because sometimes the answer is not what we are hoping for or expecting.
