About the blog

My intention with this space is to dedicate it to matters that inspire me and are close to my heart. Hopefully others will find it meaningful as well.

Reading yourself

psychicPosted by Arandjel Fri, February 16, 2018 05:52:46
I can't believe how fast time flies: here we are rapidly heading towards the end of February. It's been almost a month since my previous past, even though it feels like it was published yesterday. What is it they say...time is just a human construct? It's certainly true when it comes to readings, where time is experienced as fluid rather than linear. Defining an exact time-frame can for that reason get a bit tricky. Even more precarious is reading for oneself. No matter how skilled the psychic, you can't escape the human factor of wishful thinking. I can just speak for myself, having ignored the visions and guidance of my spirit guides over and over again because I desperately desired another outcome. (This of course ties into the debate between fate and free will, which I'll leave for a later post.) So yes, it's quite possible to read for oneself, but keeping the ego separate from your higher good is complicated. I mean, it always is. We all bring these delusions into play in readings. How many times haven't I or any of my colleagues encountered clients who are so deadset on a certain result, that they dismissed our abilities after we've presented them with our visions and recommendations from their guides. It's all so human, and that's ok.

Psychic - not omniscient

There is a misconception about psychics that we know everything. We don't. Despite dubious advertising by some of us, portraying themselves as demigods, we are just people like anybody else. Being psychic simply means a heightened emotional awareness (I'll delve deeper into this topic in another post). The sixth sense is also something we tap in to, not a state that we're constantly in. Speaking for myself, I can be rather clueless in my regular life. Or I used to be more so back in the days. With training and experience, the psychic part has become a much more integrated part of my reality, where I easier notice energies or hear angelic advice. That doesn't translate into me being all-knowing, nor that I always listen to whatever information comes to me. I make mistakes, like most people. So the premise that psychics are pre-eminently divine is flawed, as all living beings are godly. Unfortunately, that assumption, cemented as it is in popular culture, brings about plenty of confusion and disappointment. Clients sometimes have really distorted expectations on readings and science won't take us seriously. So the meme below, which is used to make light of psychics, is rather unfunny, if people actually knew the difference between the words psychic and omniscient.


When it comes to clients, it's important to mention that not all psychics are for all people. Every client is different with their own set of needs and wants. Recommendations are therefore risky: the energies might not match, the psychic could have a bad day etc. Hopefully there's an ethical business model in place, to reimburse the client if a reading goes awry. In the capacity of being a client myself, I've had less accurate readings by famous psychics and great ones by lesser known counterparts. But then again, my personal conviction is to refrain from having too many readings: I'd say no more than a couple a year.

2018! :O

psychicPosted by Arandjel Wed, January 17, 2018 05:58:43
I can't believe I haven't posted anything since April. I'm not sure where the time went, but here I am a year later. It's like I stepped into a time warp. Or maybe not. Beyond the superficial blur of the mind, major changes have slowly crystallized. They still are, it's an ongoing process. Some of those crystals can be quite pokey. But they've reminded me of my love of writing. So I'll try to devote more time to it, making it a dedicated practice. Let's see how it goes. I'm not drawing a tarot card for it, though.
