I have been psychic all of my life. Although I didn't start practicing it professionally until I was 40 I was still living as a psychic. I have heard a lot of people who do not like the word psychic because they associate it either negative experiences or do not feel it encompasses the entire ability. I referred to myself as an intuitive and this is correct. However being intuitive is a psychic experience as well. I have been hearing in my head all week "being psychic". This has been coming through loud and clear so I have come to understand that when this happens my guides and God are trying to make a strong point to me.
I have heard friends and clients who think or assume that I am able to receive an answer to anything I ask of spirit. I can but this does not mean the entire answer. I get particularly annoyed when I encounter an ongoing experience either with myself or with a client and I ask spirit for answers or recommendations only for the situation to continue. I have discovered for me this means a) not yet or b) this answer is a experiential thereby being a process instead of the "pat" answer. I love to receive solutions or resolutions because I believe problems are opportunities and these reside within the solution.
Being psychic has its ups and downs. I have had more ups than downs lately but I am still receiving information or encounters that I would love to run from or hide myself in a room. It's "TMI" and I'm left with the question "what do I do with this or about it?" with no "pat" answer! This is a good example of what I described above and I'm still trying to get used to it and just go with the flow.
The people who know me know that I don't like labels so saying I'm a psychic right now is challenging but this has been my experiential process this week. I don't like labels because I feel they impose a limit or a box. I am an author, an intuitive, a psychic and an actor but most of all I am "me" and I enjoy being me without all the bells and whistles.
