I would be interested in knowing if any of the things that come to you are wrong?
Short answer? Yes - most certainly. This is far from an exact science unfortunately, and any heartfelt genuine medium/psychic will tell you the same
- there are so many contributing factors that can skew a read. Our conscious filter, our subconscious tendencies, the environment, the connection
itself. The thing is, even when dealing with an apparent spirit world - you are still dealing with individuals, and they most certainly have their
own feel and personalities in tact from my experiences!
The thing is, it is quite usual when I have given readings to give one or two pieces of information I am quite certain about - only to be told 'no'.
No medium worth his salt wants to hear this, as of prime importance is to give bone fide information, that can comfort the sitter, and to deliver
something of true depth and meaning to hopefully ease their pain or burdons. However, often upon reflection or further research, this information
proves to be the most conclusive - because the sitter themselves did not even know! I like it when this happens, and as a poster earlier alluded to -
they themselves thought the reading was totally wrong, only to realise they'd provided an incorrect date. Quite often, if this occurs the
medium/psychic will never find out. I have been fortunate to have found out on many an occasion - and the excitement, and happiness this brings is
really worth the frustration and sadness at the time, of being confused by the information we initially provided.
But certainly 'misses' do occur! By definition of us being human, we will make mistakes, and it is unfortunate - but given the subject matter, it
is easy to use this information to beat down the "profession" as a whole.
I would steer clear of anyone, particularly mediums, who claim 100% accuracy and want payment up front for it lol! For starters, as I say, if we are
INDEED dealing with the spirit world - which despite everyones best intentions, no one presently knows for sure (despite any protestations to the
contrary), then you are dealing with other personalities, at least 2 different recollections of memory - of which we understand pretty much zilch, and
the mediums subconscious and conscious filters.
There are times I have been almost 100% accurate, with some quite remarkable detailing - but there are times that for some reason, it just hasn't
worked out at all! Wrong person/visitor/environment/state of mind? Who knows. Those times are rare, but even the very best mediums in the world have
total howlers - you just have to do your absolute best, be honest and true with your intention, and place your faith in the mysterious forces at work
that determine a successful outcome for everyone.
Great question, hope the answer helps you.
