One day, many years ago, I was getting an intuitive reading from an amazing woman. She was down-to-earth, sweet, and accurate.
What can I say? She had me at hello.
We were about 10 minutes into the session when I asked for intuitive guidance regarding a family situation. I was ready to kick off my shoes, curl up on her couch, and listen to some divine guidance while I sipped my latte.
But it all went wrong…
Instead of filling my ears with some sweet divinity, she got excited and said, “Oh I know exactly what you mean!” Then, she began telling me that she had been in a similar family situation.
For the next 20 minutes, the reading had nothing to do with me at all! It was about the intuitive reader, her situation and how she handled it.
I did not feel like this conversation was being divinely led. And I didn’t feel like she was guided to open her heart and share with me.
I felt like she had completely disconnected from my energy and just wanted to vent about what had happened to her.
I felt sad, but I learned a lesson that day:
Don’t talk about yourself when you are giving an intuitive or mediumship reading.
Why do we resonate with our clients issues?
There will be times when a client comes to you with a problem that is familiar to you. This is normal because:
- like attracts like
- we are all human, come from the same source, and struggle with the same sorts of problems
It’s natural to want to be compassionate and share from our hearts.
But during a reading, when you start talking about yourself, you are shifting away from the energy of your client.
When you give a reading, it’s about one thing – serving your client for their highest and best good.
We receive intuitive information in a lot of different ways
Let’s say your client is asking about the relationship with her partner.
You tune in and FEEL that the energy of her partner is very similar to the energy of your partner. Whoa! You have been there, done that and got the t-shirt!
But just because you are feeling a familiar energy does NOT mean that you should share your story.
Intuitive information is subtle and comes to us in all sorts of ways.
- Feeling a familiar energy can be your clairsentience kicking in.
- Seeing the face of your mom, whose name is Jane, can be your symbol for the name Jane. It doesn’t mean they want you to talk about your mom.
Psychic ability and mediumship work in all sorts of magical and subtle ways. Just remember to keep connected to your heart and always set your intention to the highest and best good of your client. You’ll keep your vibration high and be serving others with love.
