Psychic Readings Transformation
Clients who come to me for psychic readings often ask what I think about the idea that our world is on the brink of a huge “transformation”. Indeed, it seems everywhere one looks nowadays the word “Transformation” appears and 2012 is touted as the year in which we will see a massive “Shift” into a “New Reality”, one that is ‘softer’, more humane, more spiritual. I would be the first to agree that there is greater interest these days in what was once considered ‘fringe’ spirituality. More people are open to and are learning how to meditate. More people than ever before in the West are practicing Yoga. “Reducing the carbon footprint” of our homes, workspaces, vehicles, etc. has become admirable where once it was considered “eccentric”. But what exactly do we mean by Transformation? Is it the same for everyone? Is it about becoming perpetually “happy-clappy”, Pollyana-ish, or a “Health Nazi” on a crusade to eliminate salt and sugar from the face of the earth? Unfortunately, a lot of people who believe they are engaging in “Transformation” use their alleged spiritually to bludgeon those around them into conformity with the “new paradigm”, but forcing one’s own views or values on others is not what Transformation is about. It is far more subtle than a change of diet or exercise routine, far more than mouthing platitudes such as “You create your own reality” or “You’ve manifested this illness for a reason”. Transformation is above all not about co-ercion of any kind. It is not about judging others for being ‘less spiritual’ than we deem ourselves to be. Transformation is an inward process, an on-going one that doesn’t eventuate in a “finished product”. Transformation is about conscious living in all aspects of life. It’s about the humble practice of mindfulness in a world designed to short-circuit the process of mindfulness. Transformation is about giving up judging everything and beginning to observe everything.
Psychic Readings Transformation
During a psychic reading it is not uncommon for spiritual issues to arise. It stands to reason that for some clients, the need to make some changes in their lives or to deal with those that have already taken place would be their reason for seeking out the insights of a psychic. I find that loved ones who have passed on are often on hand with advice or cautions for my clients but sometimes they also reveal something of their afterlife experience that directly relates to the client’s spiritual search for clarity and deeper meaning in life. One theme that repeats itself in these circumstances is the need for the client to gently withdraw from energy-draining social – and even intimate – entanglements for a time. When you consider how much energy is expended daily on emotions of all kinds, it makes perfect sense that the first step toward finding a more authentic way to Be starts with our emotional lives. So many of our actions are emotion-driven that we don’t see that there is always a choice about how we are going to react to life events with something other than a knee-jerk response. Transformation, therefore, is not so much a “spiritual movement” as it is a personal challenge to our unexamined assumptions about what matters and what doesn’t. The steps in the Transformation Process have been well-documented down the ages and our present era is no exception yet the process is unique to each of us and we need to keep an open mind as to where we are going and how we are going to get there. Future posts will deal with the most common steps in the process of discovery that leads to Transformation – one individual at a time. Just as your DNA is unique, your life journey will be unique when you let it unfold rather than trying to buy a lifestyle off the shelf that suggests a set of values that don’t really satisfy you. When you engage in the highly individual process of creating a more satisfying life, you will find that similar minded individuals will tend to gravitate in your direction and a rich vein of friendship is often the result.
