Psychic or Therapy? I was just speaking with a dear neighbor of mine,
hilarious successful actress who was telling me about her friend who needs a therapist. I listened as she told me the awful predicament this woman was in.
Her friend’s situation: She was obviously in a lot of pain. She just got out of an abusive marriage. She has four kids. She does not believe in therapy, for her it doesn’t work. I get it. Therapy is not for everyone. But instead she goes to a psychic. Oh Sh#*!
Psychics, wow. I love going to psychics, but…
if you are going to Mr Guru psychic of the year and you take everything he says as 100 per cent truth, you are in for some ugly reality checks, as my neighbor’s friend was. Even psychics admit sometimes they make incorrect predictions. Well, her psychic said to take her new boyfriend to Costa Rica for a night and it would seal the deal. The next week he broke up with her.
Oh Dear… Even the best psychics can be wrong.
And if you base your reality and your life on their predictions, you will blind yourself to things like, shady business partners… “but my psychic said she would be amazing.” said a friend of mine. Another option: tolerating the anxiety of the unknown.
Ultimately, we are all a little psychic, but hinging on a psychic’s predictions… not smart.
It blocks you from truly seeing things you do not want to see, or it aids and abets running away from intimacy, i.e. Psychic: is this guy good for me? (You know, not the psychic. Maybe the bf is not for you, maybe he is too much for you and that is scary. )
Psychics are fun, even spot on sometimes. I have had psychics tell me so many different things and some tell me some of the exact same things over and over again.
But bottom line, do not lead your life according to a (or your) psychic’s predictions.
Be brave, be strong, have courage and listen to your own intuition.
And if need be, go to therapy. Or yoga, or meditation, spin class, or chanting… or therapy. Sometimes even just having one session will make you feel better and is usually less costly then blindly following a psychic’s predictions.
