I found myself wondering about this when a friend tried to give me a reading. Notice I said tried. I received a text message that said his guides told him that I was in need of a reading, that I had things stirring in my soul. This was a surprise to me, since generally speaking, I know when I need a reading and reach out immediately to get one. At this particular time I was feeling great, things in my life were moving along, I was following my instincts, and moving forward with my goals and aspirations. So the timing couldn’t have felt more off. “Are you sure you have the right person?” I asked, “Honestly, I can’t think of anything stirring in my soul right now that I haven’t already taken action on.” I was completely honest.
He insisted that it was for me, maybe an affirmation that I was on the right path. Again, I was in a good place, it didn’t resonate at all. While I was pondering the situation and trying to find a nice way to say “no thank you” I quickly realized that the whole thing smelt of the ego talking, not the guides.
We should never feel pushed into receiving a reading, and as psychic mediums we should never push a reading onto someone else. If they are open to receive, great. But if not, let it go!
The truth is we need our egos in place in order to survive. In my opinion it is not about losing our ego, it is about learning to live in harmony with it. We need to understand when we are using it to bend a situation to our will vs. following the guidance being provided.
In this situation, it was with someone I knew with good psychic abilities and great potential, but was possibly in need of validation of their gifts. Hey, we all need it sometimes! The best opportunity for them would be to find a local circle or class to practice in, instead of pushing their guidance on friends and family – Unless they want to be avoided like the plague.
If you find yourself on the giving side of this story, don’t feel bad, it happens! But maybe it’s time you get a little validation for your gifts. Find a local circle or weekly psychic development class to participate in. It will do wonders for your soul, and your ego.
