Last August, someone I trusted, who I invited into my house, stole from me.
She didn’t steal anything huge, in fact – had she asked, I would’ve gladly given her what she took.
At the time, I asked myself if I should give a heads-up to a mutual friend of “thief”. See, “mutual friend” was at a very high risk of being a victim.
Admittedly, I was torn.
So, I ended up asking 2 trusted intuitive friends (each, unbeknownst of the other) what I should do. They both came to the same conclusion separately: Spill the beans.
Even after that, I remember going back and forth, from thinking “I should keep my mouth shut” and the consensus of my friends “logic” that I tell. One argued: “How would you feel if she does steal from her, knowing you said nothing?”
So, I told “mutual friend”.
This was about 8 months ago, but I was reminded of this event as I hung up the phone after a reading today.
The lady on the other end of the phone want to “know what to do”.
I came to the conclusion that this lady was looking for the same thing I was looking for: To be talked out of what she knew and let off the hook.
The reason I thought I should say nothing was really all about human nature.
See, I know that if, for example, I told a friend that her husband was cheating on her, she would be mad at ME, and I would be on “the outs” with her.
So in my soul I knew the ramifications of my “tell” had the same potential (– in fact the way it played out, it did…temporarily anyway.)
Flashback: Years ago, I had a health reading with Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz, one of my teachers. She is brilliant in her own way, but this reading pissed me off.
After about 30 minutes of questions, she suggested I get a “girlfriendectomy”.
I was getting a health reading and did not immediately see the relationship between my health and my romantic life, until she spelled it out for me.
She told me that the cancer I was experiencing at the time was not mine. In fact – her exact words were “You mean to tell me that you don’t have issues with depression, weight or alcohol – that your girlfriend has issues with all of these, that her last girlfriend died of cancer and YOU didn’t figure this out?”
Staying with her, she concluded, was bad for my health.
Fast forward: 4 months later, I knew Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz was right (and I did have the suggested “girlfriendectomy”).
And this is the point: I followed MY knowing, NOT her advice. Her advice helped me see, for sure. But I didn’t break up with the woman ‘cuz she said so. I did it because I saw from my heart what I didn’t see before.
Back to Today: So when my client plunked down $300 for a reading and asked me whether or not she should leave her husband, I knew that she knew the answer before she even called!
The Moral to the Story: We do not need to look for answers outside ourselves. Unless you need professional help (you have a broken leg, plumbing issues or need accounting support) most guidance can come from within.
Looking for answers outside ourselves is a coward’s way out: When we take advice, we have someone to blame.
The reality is, we our responsible for our choices and our lives.
Yes – I am an intuitive, who gets paid to do readings, giving THIS advice.
Most of us don’t know how to trust ourselves (hell, sometimes, intuitive or not, if I have an attachment to a particular outcome, I don’t either!)
