One piece of the baggage that comes with the “Psychic” word, and why I vastly prefer “Intuition” is that people think psychics can predict the future and indeed some psychics actively encourage this belief.
What a load of nonsense. It is just marketing spin, in the same way that that shampoo is going to make your hair all silky smooth and you’ll look effortlessly glamorous all the time.
The reason I’m so sure psychics can’t predict the future is that even if only a very few people could predict the future, then you’d see at least some of the following happen:
- It would be a skill you could put on your resumé and it would be actively sought out.
- Psychics would be banned from all sorts of events and activities.
- Armies would have weaponised it.
- Politicians would boast about their psychic ability (even if they didn’t have any).
- There would be lots of academic research into how and why it happens.
- An awful lot of the financial instruments we rely on wouldn’t work (insurance, futures contracts, options, etc.)
None of this happens.
From my own experience using my intuition, I’ve never got anything predicts the future. I get nudges, hints, suggestions, warnings, but nothing I’d feel safe calling a prediction.
If you see someone claiming to be able to predict the future, they’re cynically exploiting your vulnerability. If during a reading you get definite predictions, I’d say that is at best a mis-read by the person doing the reading – or, you as the client are desperately seeking certainty.
What a good intuitive can and will do is give you more context, a higher perspective. And what they say will resonate with you.
