Back in the early 80's when I spoke to my friends about the prophetic visions that came to me in spirit - they would use the word 'psychic' to try and define what I was doing.
I did not like the word or what it implied. When I asked my friends what it meant - they explained to me in a way that implied palm reading or forecasting charts through astrology. I laughed.
The predictions came to me from a spirit of the highest authority. It was not by the design of my own intelligence or my own spirit. The predictions came from the Creator that created the breaths of all living souls - past, present and future.
I am not a psychic in the sense that I give individual forecast for people.
I told my friends this but yet - one of them saw the similarites and later came to me for what he called a reading. I was offended and deeply hurt. I felt he had been close enough to me and had heard me express my feelings on such matters. I didn't work with a low level spirit. I worked with the highest authority as a messenger and had nothing to do with the design or intent of the predictions. I didn't ask for them. They came to me of the will of the Creator. I would never impose myself or the will of others on the will of Creation.
My friend pleaded with me to use my talents and skills to obtain information about his future. I warned him that was 'dangerous' territory and if he had a belief in God - then he should work directly with his own intimate and spiritual relationship with the Spirit of Creation to obtain personal information about his future….otherwise going through a medium could have dire consequences.
Our future is designed based on our needs and not our desires or wants. Our desires are human based and our needs are spiritually based. There is often a conflict regarding our human desires and our spiritual needs.
My friend insisted and called me on a spiritual pledge and promise I had given him. I reluctantly went into a trance stage of meditation to secure the answer to the question he was asking concerning his future.
When I was finsished - I consulted with my friend and told him it was just as I had warned. He was not going to like the news I had secured about his future. I pleaded with him to give up his quest and embrace his future with his own mind of understanding. He insisted I give him the answer he was asking a question to.
In the end - he mentally rejected the answer because it didn't match up to his desire for the future. He asked what spirit I had consulted with to get that knowledge of the future. I had written down his answer on a piece of paper and sealed it up in an envelope prior to him asking. I told him to open the envelope and the answer would be written down for him.
The answer was:
"YOUR spirit gave me this to know. In the future - consult with your own spirit on matters pertaining to your future. Don't ask me to be a bearer of bad news to your human mind. Your spirit will give you what you NEED to know on the matter and NOT what you want to know."
That sums up my belief on 'psychic' predictions about one's own future.
Why ask another to do for you what you can do for yourself?
