Have you ever wandered into the darkened area of a New Age store, hunting for that secret place where a woman is waiting for you, a crystal ball in hand, promising to tell you of your future? At some point or other, all of us have reached out to others for guidance and there is nothing wrong with seeking help. What is wrong in my mind is when the guidance from others becomes a program, albeit one that is hard to understand and decipher. Whereas in the past it was fashionable to consult a fortune teller and gaze into her crystal ball, I would like to write about the reasons why not consulting a fortune teller will serve your future better.
Please remember that what many fortune tellers see or feel is filtered by their own perceptions, fears, and feelings. In my eyes, a pure channel (someone who is connected directly to the Source) is not authorized to tell your future; rather, they help you make better decisions based on your present moment. Be wary of those who tell you God is speaking through them, for often it could be something less pretty!
Another reason why consulting fortune tellers might not truly serve you is that whatever they tell you might stay in your mind a very long time, and could actually hinder rather than help you. Once I consulted a woman who told me my brother was going to have an accident at a certain age, and my whole family became terrified, even my skeptical brother. As time went on, we realized that our fears might actually be creating this event instead of avoiding it. You might recall that energy flows in the direction that our thoughts do, so focusing on a dark future will certainly create that future. In the end, we learned to erase from our minds the words of this woman, and my brother still stands today, thank God.
Lastly, fortune tellers, for the most part, do not really see the future. Sorry to bust your bubbles folks! What they do see is what you already know, what you already carry within you as a future plan or goal. If you have consulted a fortune teller, oftentimes you find yourself saying, “Amazing! She saw all my talents and dreams!” and this is true. What they do is take what is inside of you and shape it into what they believe might be the future for you. So in reality, you could consult your best friend and get a better reading of your future, in my opinion.
I recommend, if you want to look at your future, take that crystal ball into your own hands. Say out loud what you would like your future to look like, instead of trying to “see” into your future. Create your future, words have a lot of power! You might be surprised how much your future will be prosperous, beautiful, and filled with love. Instead of letting others guide you to certain goals or dreams, guide yourself and with enough self-confidence and self-love, you can manifest anything your heart desires!
