In the context of how I saw it, David’s experience of living through a tough childhood with an alcoholic father was the kind of struggle that at the time was holding him back. But once I had been allowed to see it, and witnessed with compassion how it had affected his entire family, I was immediately given the exact information that could make a huge difference for him. He would have to choose how to react to it and what to do next. But my own shock at discovering I was a conduit underscored a very important realization that made the concept of “good” and “bad” news totally irrelevant.
What I saw, and then shared, helped David and it also helped me. It was my first experience, repeated so many many times over the years, of being part of the creation of the highest good for the greatest number. We both became aware that night of the most powerful gift that intuition can bestow, the awareness that we are all intimately known by the infinite. My guides made sure I would discover that I was gifted and could help others. David’s made sure he knew the clock had not run out on his dreams. I suppose it might have been more desirable for some if I had channeled the day’s winning lottery numbers for him, but I like to think we won a bigger jackpot that night.
When an intuitive is able to see the important details about you and your life even though there is absolutely no way to empirically gather that information, it is a spiritual experience. The power of being seen in this way opens our hearts to the possibility that we are all connected to a greater good and that our lives have meaning beyond merely enduring them. All of our lives, all of our living, all the “good” and all of the “bad” experiences, have meaning. The experience of living is our greatest teacher and gives us more power than we realize. And yes, it’s also true that all the suffering in the world on its own will not guarantee transformation or a better life for any of us. Not everyone will rise above their experiences. Some will become agents of harm as they themselves experienced.
But no matter what circumstances you find yourself in, my job is to show you that you count. You have worth. You are seen. You belong to Life. I have been humbled over and over again by the information that comes through me every day for my clients, that shows us there is a way to live productively and with full access to all the joy our hearts can stand to hold. No matter what.
So instead of looking into my clients’ lives for a map that will only take them towards the “good” and away from the “bad”, I ask for the information that will be of most benefit to them. When there is current difficulty or challenge ahead, I see the ways that can best prepare them to transform. And I always make sure to reflect back to my clients the ways that their own intuition is actively helping them too, and consider this to be perhaps my highest calling.
Think about it: if I could discover so unexpectedly that I was an intuitive, if the truest thing about me was also the most unseen, if I was so completely clueless to my most natural resource, then maybe I owe it to the world to make it a little more welcoming and open on the subject, by teaching as much as I can about Actual Psychic Stuff. I’m happy to extend that invitation so we all become more intuitive, together.
Maybe we just can’t see who we really are until it’s time. When all the pieces are in place and we’re ready to go.
