It's like doing readings for people... I have to start somewhere, but it's scary putting yourself out there like that. I've came close to it with a
few friends, but I don't even know where to start.
You start with your idea and allow it to become a thing. Thoughts are things!
Should I try to tell them about their day? Let them ask questions and then just step out of the way and let it come through? That actually sounds
exactly like what I need to do. There's that fear though, of looking totally stupid if I draw a blank.
Blanks happen, but that is a part of learning. You won't get everyone, well, you might, can't say it won't happen, but usually it gets to around
80% maybe more if you are naturally in tune. It takes practice, and avoiding getting discouraged when you get nothing, or something wrong, cause it
will happen that way. The idea is to figure out what you are doing right, and to sharpen that skill.
Even if the friends are close, I still have that silly fear of getting everything wrong. I love to sketch people, like my favorite bands or other
celebrities, but so far I've only done it while looking at photos. If I can do houses, I wonder if I could do sketches of people? I usually get an
image in my mind when talking to people on the phone (I answer the phone at computer help desk), and one guy in particular was very interesting.
Fear, it is a big blocker, and you gotta kind of ditch it. We are here to help you and encourage you.I can only speak for myself, but I expect you to
be wrong, and I am ok with that. Because it is a part of the learning process.
Again, it goes to tracking down what you are doing right with people encouraging you to keep on doing. Don't ever try, just do. Trying sets you up
for failure, doing sets you up for success. If you do it, and it is wrong, so what? Keep doing until you do it right.
OMG, I just had a thought... if I get to the point where I could work as a medium, the sketches of who I'm seeing could be verification for the
people I'm reading for!
It could happen that way, but don't get to far ahead of yourself. I did this about a month ago after giving one of Roses friends a reading, and I was
bummed because I was really hoping for some spirit to come through, and none did for the tarot, however, the minute she said she wondered what her
daughter looked like, she was suddenly there, and I saw her plain as day. I told her what I saw, as she was now 10, and not 6, taller with red dress,
and glasses...I even started to draw a picture but I just couldn't get it quite right. It can be frustrating trying that out, but it is a new
experience to me as well. I just did this very same thing, so it is possible.
I only encourage, and I doubt Sled would discourage you either. There is only one way to learn, and that is to do and experience it. Since you already
have experienced it before, with houses people live in, it should come somewhat natural once you find the right "click" for lack of a better word.
