For as far back as I can remember, I have been listening to the tales that have come from fortune tellers. From mummy going to readings when we were younger to dabbling in a few sessions myself back in my student days, it is a strange experience and one that I vowed that I would never partake in again once I discovered The Secret by Lorna Byrne.
I believed that if I had been told something will happen, I would put all my focus into it and make decisions based on that outcome and therefore, in the way the Law of Attraction works, it will be manifested. Good and bad!
I stood firm on this logic until about four weeks ago when after a pretty shitty time, I thought what harm would come from it? If nothing else, it would be a night out of the house and some ‘light entertainment.’
Believe it or not, I was actually quite looking forward to it. I didn’t feel nervous or apprehensive as I thought I would, but I was very much of the opinion that I would take everything that she said with a pinch of salt.
The reading began with me shuffling a deck of cards and then cutting them in half before selecting which half the fortune teller was going to read from. She also gave me a crystal ball to hold, if I was happy to let the spirits in. Of course!
For someone whose face gives away every thought and feeling, I had myself prepped to have as much of a poker face as I could manage.
She began by going through a few generic statements, stating the kind of person I am, my current financial situation, my job and my moods etc., all the sort of stuff that anyone could guess…
Then came the game changer! She started asking questions about a situation that had occurred quite recently and, on a few occasions, metaphorically ‘hit the nail on the head’. I tried to be as cool as I could but the details that she was giving me were scarily accurate. She had told me that my granny (who’s deceased) was giving her the information. Crazy!
I definitely wasn’t expecting to hear what she told me and certainly not in the level of detail that she gave me. So now I’m left wondering what it’s all about?!
Is there truth in what she is saying or is it just a matter of hitting lucky? I honestly don’t know.
I suppose in a way, some of the things she said, I’m hoping do come true but then I have to bring myself back to taking it all with a pinch of salt and not putting too much of a focus on it. As much as I hope for that outcome, I have to remind myself that I can’t live my life by what she said.
As they say, time will tell but I’ll keep going the way I was going and hope for the best!
I’d love to know your thoughts on fortune tellers. Do you believe there is truth in them, or do you think it’s just a scam? Let me know!
