Not long ago I was listening to a local AM talk station. A guest whom I’d heard on countless other radio stations before was about to take calls from listeners, giving them a brief and at times humorous glimpse into their futures.
Her name is Psychic Suzanna. While I didn’t know what she looked like as I listened to her rattle off prediction after prediction, I felt like I knew her, had perhaps met her in the form of other people.
I’m not getting existential here. Her characteristics simply reminded me of other people I have known. The smoky voice, calling everyone “honey” (regardless of gender), the cackle.
I didn’t muster the guts to phone in my request during the half-hour segment, but my ears most certainly perked up when she mentioned the free readings she offers via e-mail.
At that moment I knew I would pose my question. It took four or five days to actually send the e-mail, as part of me was largely fearful of her response. I mentioned I am a writer and asked the following: “What do you see my in future, from a professional standpoint?”
As I approach my 30th year on this planet, I’m most curious about my career as a writer. Years ago a holistic therapist — who didn’t even know I was a writer, mind you — predicted I would write a book, but not until I was married.
While I don’t know the truth to her prediction, the news made me quiver with excitement and anticipation nonetheless.
And so, as the cursor on my screen blinked and blinked and blinked again, I sent the same question to Psychic Suzanna.
Her response is below. It’s certainly brief (and it ends with a preposition, which bugs me), but it is followed by line upon line of motivational prose punctuated with WORDS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS (which bugs me, too), sans a period. It is most likely a copy-and-paste job from an overused Microsoft Word file on her home computer, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
You will be in print often. Also there will be some form of teaching and training you will do
YOUR PHYSICAL VEHICLE
Your BREATH is the BREATH OF GOD You Exist ON PURPOSE! You are NOT A MISTAKE, you are DIVINE…. MANIFESTED IN PHYSICAL FORM and when you put yourself down….You are Putting down GOD and those who love you …. Now really how dumb is that!
HONOR YOUR BODY as the VEHICLE of GOD in the world. YOU CANNOT ask Your Body to support You. If you put it down. BE at PEACE with your body and then watch it perform for you
YOU cannot ask anyone to love YOU unless you LOVE and APPROVE of yourself first
YOUR EMOTIONAL WELL BEING
1. YOUR THOUGHTS and ACTIONS are POWERFUL …..THEY CREATE YOUR WORLD …….HAPPINESS is not found through another It is only found when you LOVE and SUPPORT the God that is WITHIN YOU!
2. CARRYING yesterdays garbage only draws more garbage to you. It says that garbage is what you expect and God loves you enough to give you whatever YOU expect. Whatever you give your thoughts to. Will Expand.
3. WORRY is an insult to GOD. It is saying that GOD who created the world cannot handle your problems. SURRENDER the worry about the problem and give your mind the opportunity join God in finding you a solution
4. GUILT is a man made emotion to control man. There is no edict from above that said, if you do things the best way you can, and it does not meet others expectations, that you need to feel bad CHOOSE TO LIVE with honesty and integrity. Then guilt and regrets will have no place in your life
CHOOSING YOUR PATH
PRIORITIZE WHAT IS IMPORTANT. There is no one on their death bed, who worries about, what is in their checking or savings account or what bills they have to pay. They think about who they have loved, who loves them and the lessons they have learned. ASK if what you do will harm anyone. ASK if the decision you make will be something that you will have be proud of in a year
There is saying that has brought me peace and continues bringing me peace ‘DEATH IS LIKE TAKING OFF A TIGHT PAIR OF SHOES’…..We are more than a Physical body…….. First, WE are a SPIRITUAL BEING INHABITING OUR BODY
HOW DOES THE PROBLEM SERVE ME?
All problems are lessons. Change how you look at the problem. Then you find the lesson.
HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE IF THERE WERE NO NUMBERS?
At what age do you decide to be old, or get sick?
TRY…………… is an excuse for not doing.
ON THE BACK OF MY CARD IT SAYS
The PAST HAS NO POWER and the FUTURE IS CHANGEABLE
The POWER is in THIS MOMENT and in YOU
CHOOSE NOW TO LOOK FOR AND ACCEPT THE GOOD IN EVERYTHING
