Earlier this week I was following a thread in a Facebook group where an individual posted that a friend of hers was going to be doing some psychic readings and asked if anyone had any questions they wanted to ask of her. Some of the questions were going to be selected for answering during a call which would then be shared.
“What a fun idea!” I thought.
And then I began to read the questions people were posting.
Questions like, “what’s blocking me from success?” “What’s holding me back?” “What’s limiting me?”
As I read more and more of the questions, most of them along the same theme, I was seriously baffled.
Didn’t these people realize the answers lie within them?
This made me think of an article I had read earlier this year, one that spoke about how the psychic industry makes BILLIONS of dollars a year, and how the therapy industry makes nowhere near that amount of money.
In reading all of the questions in the post, I started to wonder, how is it that these questions, which most of our therapy clients come and see us for here at the Center for Soulful Relationships, are the ones people want to ask a psychic?
No offense to psychics, I have psychic gifts myself. It just boggled me that people are asking an outside source, for the answer to something that lies within.
And then it hit me: People want a quick fix. They want the answer NOW. They don’t want to have to work for it.
Most of us want instantaneous results, especially when we are in pain.
It takes a lot of courage to get to know yourself and have a deeply intimate relationship with all parts of yourself. And with that courage comes effort. And who wants that, right? Especially when we can talk to a psychic and get the answer in an instant.
Like I said, I have nothing against psychics.
The thing is, a psychic can only tell you so much, and then the rest is up to you.
You want to know what’s blocking you. Sure, you can see a psychic for that.
And then what?
And then it’s going to take some work to heal whatever that block is.
And if you aren’t willing to do the work to heal whatever the block is, you aren’t going to get very far in changing the pattern that’s keeping you stuck.
And, as I write that, I realize, there are those people who only want to know what the block is, they don’t want to actually do anything to change it…I guess there are those who aren’t looking for a solution at all…I guess those might be the people who don’t know there is another way: Another way to end the pain, another way to end the struggle, another way to end the suffering.
Rather than relying on an outside source, wouldn’t it be nice to cultivate a deeply nourishing relationship with yourself?
If you’re ready to cultivate a deeply nourishing relationship with yourself, we can help. Our therapists weave their intuitive gifts into the therapy room to help you cultivate a deeper relationship with yourself, one in which you can learn to trust yourself for your answers.
