Gather round, all my psychic chicks and chicklets! Today we’re going to address one of the biggest sources of anxiety people have about consulting an intuitive: the fear of bad news.
In order to get past this fear and enjoy your session, here’s what you need to know:
I do not give people bad news. Period.
“But, Susan!” I can hear you exclaiming, “Life is not a herd of rainbow unicorns magically grazing in my garden, who shower love on everyone unconditionally, stunning them into wide-eyed wonderment with their iridescence and warm-hearted omniscience!”
I know that.
“It’s also not a palatial library with super comfy chairs all around and a cafè staffed with servers who are happy to bring everything to you as long as you’re there so you never have to get up!”
True. Disappointing, but true.
“Life is not one fantastic day after another on a black sand beach! It’s not getting to meet Bill Murray right after having the best meal of your life right after having the best sex of your life right after winning the lottery! It’s not Disneyl — “
Unfortunately, I think we get the picture. It is a universal truth that life can be difficult. We all experience suffering at points in our lives, and we all struggle to cope with our suffering. No one gets out of life alive. And anyone who tries to simplify the work that is demanded of us here on earth is trivializing the sacred nature of why we come here to be human. I know this intimately both from working with actual humans for a little over thirty years and also from being an actual human myself. I do not do the work I do to try and convince anyone that life is easy.
I didn’t say there wasn’t any bad news. I said I’m not in the business of trading in it. What that means is that there actually isn’t any bad news. There are hard things that can be ameliorated, and there are the circumstances of our lives which if we trust them, even if we don’t like them, can be the foundation of our transformation.
