Some people can be pretty rigid when it comes to the idea of predicting the future. “Last year my husband and I were having trouble conceiving, and went to see a psychic reader,” says Danielle, 37, an accountant. “She said I would get pregnant in the summer. I was really excited, counted the days and nothing happened. At some point, I decided to stop thinking about it, and focus on other aspects in my life. Then, suddenly, in late October, I tested positive… The reader was off by a few months”.
Predictions Offer Guidance, Not Instructions
Many people expect to get word-for-word instructions about a job, a relationship or a friend from their psychic reader. But that approach can be very limiting. Readings are about guidance, support, encouragement, empowerment, insight and comfort. They can help you see things that perhaps you already knew deep down, hadn’t thought of before or haven’t yet realized. But ultimately, you are the one who will have to make decisions about your own future.
“The goal of a prediction is to visualize the direction in which your life is heading,” says Tara, an astrologist. “However, the prediction isn’t an absolute outcome set in stone. A psychic reading can open up a myriad of possibilities for you to explore, and choices for you to make and follow. Of course, you won’t be able to change every single thing about your life and surroundings, but you have visibility into more choices and paths than before the reading”.
Some aspects of your life can be predicted at a certain point, given the present conditions. The prediction is like a snapshot in time, capturing the future of the current scenario. Once the prediction is given, these conditions may change. Therefore, the final outcome may be different than if you had never experienced the reading. In other words, when you are given a prediction, this may have an impact on the future.
Are Predictions’ Timings Accurate?
“During a reading, I can visualize a person, a number, a season, but often, the timeframe isn’t too specific,” says Summer, 61, a psychic reader. Predictions will often materialize down the road, sometimes after a few months or in the course of your life – a call from a lost relative, a new job or a baby may come when you least expect them. However, timeframes can vary.
One of the reader’s tasks is to interpret the ideas conveyed to him/her into a clear, concrete prediction, and this involves a high level of professional expertise. “When I see the number 7, that could mean 7 days, 7 weeks or even 7 years,” said Angie, 58, a psychic reader. “I use other parts of the reading, and my intuition, to try to grasp the most accurate timeline possible, but things aren’t always completely precise.”
“Next Week Your Checkup Will Go Well”
“I decided to go to a tarot reader with a friend, just for the fun of it,” said Enid, 28, a beautician. “It was amazing: She said: ‘What about your creativity? You have so many words inside you. You had some medical crisis a few months ago that really shook you up, but next week you’ll go for a checkup and the doctor will tell you that it’s healed’. I was flabbergasted. It’s true I have lots of ideas for books and stories, but was too insecure to actually write them. And how could she know about the time I broke my leg? Sure enough, my upcoming checkup went well just like she said.”
“Can you predict the future?” asks Dan Zuckerberg, 26, a programmer. “That’s a big question. Personally, I don’t actually let readings and predictions control my life in an absolute way, but I do see them as a consultation, a second opinion, or an outside perspective that can bring a lot of support.”
Prewritten Destiny or Free Will?
The idea of predictions assumes that to some degree, our destiny is prewritten. Can we truly change our destiny, or is our path predetermined? This question has been the focus of philosophical debates across the centuries. Determinism is the concept that everything that happens is predetermined and cannot be changed. According to this, people can’t change their course of action, and there is only one possible path. This contrasts with the idea of free will, which is the ability of people to select a particular path or action they have decided on.
It’s interesting to note that Thomas Aquinas, a philosopher in the 13th century, reinforces the ideas mentioned above. He saw people as being pre-programmed to aim for particular objectives, but still having the ability to make choices between different paths to reach these objectives. Aquinas believed that the existence of free will is proven by the fact that our intellect has the ability to deliberate and consider different courses of action.
Can Psychics Read Your Mind?
Readings and predictions open a window into your subconscious mind, to things that are hidden deep inside of you. They are a way to transcend your intellect and venture deeper down - that’s why even some psychotherapists use tarot cards in their therapeutic work. Whenever you get a reading, you attribute meaning to the ideas that come up, and your subconscious mind provides an interpretation for these ideas. This provides you with insights that can help you make better choices.
“Tarot cards are an effective tool in psychotherapy,” says Jonathan, 42, a psychologist. “In one session, my patient chose the Empress card out of the tarot deck, and I told him that this card generally means good luck, happiness and fertility. He associated the card with a woman who was very meaningful in his life, and this led us to important insights about how her loss had been instrumental in generating his current predicament.”
