Maybe I’ve spent too much time with my head in a fantasy novel, but I’ve always wanted to believe that real psychics exist. I’d like to believe that someone can see through the swirling muck that is my brain and pull the answers I need from the ether.
Will I become a published author? End up with 2.5 babies and an Audi in the driveway? Find the secret to everlasting happiness?
I can’t begin to guess—but I always wondered if a psychic could.
And that’s how I found myself curled up on my bed with a glass of wine in my hand, trolling the Psychic Source website for a good psychic. I read a few profiles. Looked for guidance in the two-dimensional pictures staring back at me. But I got nothing. So I decided to just call the number and see who I ended up with.
After listening to a few “personal greetings,” I chose Lena—a clairvoyant who could supposedly read you and your situation with no more than your name and birthdate.
It didn’t start off well.
“Yeah, hi. Name and birthdate, please,” she snapped.
I told her, and she continued in a heavy New York accent, “Yeah. Okay. So what’s your question?”
I told her that my career was at a crossroads, and I was wondering which direction to take myself. Her answer?
“You’re going in the right direction. It’s going to happen in August of this year.”
“What’s going to happen?”
“The thing you’re looking for. The direction. Just keep a positive outlook and it’ll all come together.”
Uh huh. I let her repeat herself three or four more times before hanging up.
Undaunted, I tried again. This time, I spoke to Callie—an older woman with a gravelly voice who says she’s been working as a psychic for 40 years.
She started the call off on a much warmer note.
“Hi, this is Callie. What’s your name, dear?”
Encouraged, I decided to be up front and tell her I was a first-timer with no clue what I was doing.
“That’s okay, dear. As long as you’re open, I can help you. That’s what I’m here for!”
I posed the same question.
“Well, dear, I see here that you’ve got a lot of talent. But boy are you spreading your energy in a lot of directions! Don’t you ever sit still?”
Entirely disarmed, I laughed out loud.
She went on to tell me that yes, I was moving in the right direction. But that I needed to be patient.
“You’ll get the results you’re looking for,” she said. “I’m pulling a lot of positive cards for you. But you’ve got to focus! You’re just running around in circles!”
There was more, and it was both soothing and encouraging, but I won’t bore you with the details. But before I hung up, I asked her if she saw another baby in my future.
“Oh, your husband. He worries, worries, worries. You just need to give that one a rest, girl. Give him some space and he’ll come around.”
In other words, the universe isn’t very hopeful either.
The best piece of advice she gave me? “Just try standing still for a while and let the opportunities catch up to you.”
I don’t know if she’s psychic or not, but that? Was exactly what I needed to hear.
Will I call again? Probably not. But I certainly enjoyed myself. So if you’ve ever wanted to talk to a psychic, you might want to give these guys a try. If nothing else, you’ll end up with a good story to tell!
