There’s a fair chance that is you’ve forked out big bucks for a psychic reading, you’re looking for an answer – an answer to something that’s missing from your life, or feels unattainable, or perhaps you’re just curious about the future. Whether it’s answers around love, career, money, children, happiness, health or travel, the words your psychic shares can have a big influence on your future decision-making. “In psychology realms, this is called, Imprinting and Phase Sensitive Learning, and usually when you see a psychic, you are vulnerable to their words and ideas,” explains Lisa N Edwards, author of Can’t Fight Fate. And after much experience with psychics herself, Lisa agrees that the words that psychic said are forever etched into your mind. Here, the author, who based her new book on some of her psychic experiences, pens her theory…
Can Psychics change your thoughts?
So what happens if and when you are in a situation or event that you think the Psychic has described? Do the words of that psychic change your way of thinking? Alternatively, is it entirely possible that a Psychic has special powers and can actually see the future? This opens a can of worms for the sceptics amongst us, of which I am not one. I believe there are good and bad psychics just like mechanics, hairdressers or tradespeople, there are ones that actually can actually do what they say and others that will just rip you off blind.
So how do you know a good psychic?
This is the million-dollar question and there are many different theories on how to tell. Psychics work with energy, just like when you meet someone you have an instant connection and other times you have an instant dislike, I believe this is the same for psychics and their connections. Some get connections stronger than others also, some are actually able to delve deeper. From my experiences with psychics, I have found you cannot live your life by their words. I like to think of myself as an intelligent articulate woman, but over the years have found myself falling back to ‘OMG that is what the psychic said!’ moment.
Are you crazy to believe?
At the risk of sounding crazy, after several different readings from completely different Psychics, I found myself following a similar path, each and every psychic has told me to write and I have always written down thoughts and feelings, just to help me process how I was feeling inside. It became my way of letting go. Both John Edward and Lisa Williams told me I had a book inside me that I needed to write, and most have told me about a ‘green-eyed man’ that I would meet. So how do you let go of a man you have never met, but holds a special place in your heart, because every psychic you have ever seen has said he exists. For me, it was to bring him to life. My book Can’t Fight Fate, while entirely fictional, has been written around my own psychic readings and experiences, while some details were changed to suit the story, others were included verbatim.
So, can the words of a Psychic influence your destiny? For me, definitely. I have numerous times changed my thoughts from the guidance of a psychic, and I must say mostly for the better. What I have also discovered over the years is that if those ideas or words were not originally something I wanted to achieve or something that resonated with me, I would not think twice about them. I also found the psychics opened up possibilities for me I would never have dreamed of by myself. The psychics enabled me to believe in me. And I believe this is a great thing!
