So, we have been having some issues determining where to live, right? Basically, we have no idea where we're going to be living after Vern is done with his chiropractic training (so if any of you have any ideas, please let me know!). This was my impetus in wanting to visit with a psychic. I wanted her to tell us where she saw us living.
I read a good book about psychic abilities when I was looking into everything. It was called The Gift: Understand and Develop Your Psychic Abilities by Echo Bodine. She is a Christian and talks a lot about how she sees her abilities as a gift from God to help others. I liked that. It also explained how psychics get their messages. How they interpret them
So, anyway, I did some research on some area psychics and I set up a half hour appointment with Alison James. I called her at Noon today. I wrote out a list of a bunch of questions ahead of time that I wanted to ask her.
When she answered, I spent the first 5 minutes just reading off my questions as she wrote them down. Then, for the remaining 25 minutes, she answered as many as she could get to before we ran out of time. Here is what we came up with (I just took notes, so this is not word-for-word from our conversation, but it's probably pretty close):
Where are we meant to live when my husband is done with his chiropractic training in the latter part of 2011?
It feels like you're in a huge hurry, like a horse chomping to get out of the gates. You feel like you're behind.
I like to be prepared, I guess.
Everything is brand spanking new to all of you, semi-tropical. Bustling. Right on the water.
Vern is going to be doing some additional training in Naples, Florida, after he graduates. I was wondering where we would be after that.
(She doesn't really come up with anything, and says that she just keeps feeling this semi-tropical, bustling kind of place.)
When will our house sell?
I see it selling very abruptly. Like you're in transition, in between, and the timing is off.
Like, when we move to Colorado in August? Is that the transition?
I keep getting that it couldn't be worse timing. Like you just get to Colorado and then you have to turn around and come back to take care of paperwork on the house.
Should we get renters?
I see the house as empty when you're in Colorado. I don't see any renters.
(At the end of the reading she said she had the strongest feeling about this question. Like there was a sense that, "Ah, now I have to go back for that.")
What's my life's purpose?
Do you have something you want me to zero in on?
I'm not sure. Um, maybe filmmaking or energy work with babies, like Dr. Emerson does.
I'm getting the most relaxed energy from energy work, like you're in harmony with that. Babies, that's a given. You're a mom, mom, mom. Your purpose is not just going to appear one day all at once, it goes in stages, step-by-step. And all of your interests kind of bleed into each other. Filmmaking is not the first step. It seems like you keep everything pretty close to home. If you did filmmaking, it would be within your community. Close to home is core to you. It's no so much you want to leave a legacy, but you feel importance to want to change things. You want that it makes a change. Grassroots, within your community. I don't get that you've got it yet.
(And this is the quote I like best of all...)
Your purpose is just you being who you are and doing whatever moves you at the time.
Why did I think Peace would have brown hair and brown eyes?
You were a step ahead. You're not done yet. Haven't had the next child. I see a boy with brown hair and brown eyes.
But I felt like it was a girl.
(Something about how all people are girls until the choose to be a boy at the last minute... I can't remember how she worded this.)
So... those were the questions that she got to. I also had a question about my blog (Will my blog be successful?) that we didn't get to because we ran out of time. Wouldn't you all just love to know the answer to that one?
Oh, one more thing: a couple of weeks ago, I had posted a question on the Mothering.com Ask-An-Intuitive forum about where we would live, and this is how the intuitive responded:
"I am hearing Seattle, Washington, and I think you will love it there and he will do very well there with his practice."
Does anybody have any thoughts on any of this? Please discuss.
