Quote from Patricia Kirkman
Quote from a Psychic - Connecting

I asked Patricia Kirkman how she connected with her client's energy. She answered:

"I ask for their birth name and birth date. From that, I start getting information. Some of it is physical; I am writing it and looking at it. Other comes to me intuitively and I'll ask them questions. They validate the information for me. It comes from different directions. I'm not looking for anything specific, other than their name and birthday. As soon as I get that, I start receiving other information."

Foretelling Death

Foretelling Death

Three weeks ago, I wrote a blog in which I wondered how much to believe psychic predictions. Sometimes predictions come true, and sometimes they don't. You can read the "Believe it or Not?" post by scrolling down to June 1. One part of the blog wondered why psychics didn't know when someone close was about to die.

I received several interesting responses to that post. A couple of them were about the idea of knowing, in advance, someone's time of death.

One woman explained her experience with predicting death. She wrote so perfectly that I am going to quote her, but I won't use her name in case she isn't ready to be public about this. She said:

"I used to get a clear and unrelenting message whenever someone around me was going to die, to include the specifics of when and, sometimes, how. I'd also walk through a crowd and I could tell who was not long for this world. This became like having a radio only you could hear blasting doom in your ear.

"I lost a lot of family members and loved ones to tragedy and bizarre accidents over a short span of time. I'd received warnings on all of them. I was not able to ‘change,' anything; they still died. The guilt that accompanies this is horrendous. I decided that this was not a good gift, as all it allowed me to do was grieve in advance.

"I do not know the origin of these messages. It was a very clear voice that I did not know, that spoke without contractions, no ‘can't, won't, hasn't,' etc. Whatever it was, it was its own vibration, very distinct from others that, say, warn you about shady people, a coming rainstorm on a clear day, what your Mom REALLY wants for her birthday, or that you need to call your cousin. All I can assume is that it is a ‘signal,' if you will, a wavelength independent and separate from normal psychic informational flow.

"One day I firmly decided that I did not want to receive any further messages about soon-to-be dead people. I've not gotten a single message since. I still can sense them, however, only it's not as ‘loud,' and overpowering. It's just a feeling. I'll think to myself, ‘Yep, that guy has about three months . . .' and sure enough.

"I've never come across anyone else who had this ‘gift,' so I am really winging it here. I think that psychics are like any other specialty, i.e., doctors, technical folks . . . They tend to specialize in, and focus on, what is meaningful to both themselves and those they advise. In other words, their radar is tuned to humanity. Folks that get the psychic version of a verbal death card warning about other people are tuned in another direction. It's some kind of connection to a netherworld, or in-between existence, that provided me this knowledge. There was neither light nor darkness associated with it, it just . . . well . . . was.

"I've never had any interest in reopening that doorway. Again, all it seemed to do was allow me to grieve in advance and feel a degree of inappropriate responsibility that I could not mitigate. Weird thing was, the sadder I was and the more I grieved, the stronger and more frequent these messages were.

"I've since re-tuned my radar and am a much happier and peaceful person for it."

What a wonderful, thorough, explanation!

I've spoken with several other people who know in advance when someone is going to die. Two people can smell it. They say that people who are about to pass have a certain scent. Another person tells me that the soon-to-be-gone person looks "transparent" two days before they pass. A fourth person tells me that someone who is about to pass loses their aura. When she looks at someone and can't see their aura, she knows it won't be long.

Honestly, I've probably spoken with other people who also know in advance, I just can't remember how they know. If you are one of those people who know about death in advance, please e-mail me and tell me about your experience.

Another blog reader commented on the timing of death. She said that we decide when we are going to pass. Very often there is a series of small, seemingly inconsequential, decisions. Then, our Higher Self works things out on an unconscious level.

She added:

"What psychics see are lines of probability. For every event, we have many probable choices. Our physical self chooses one outcome, but the other choices continue energetically. Think of it like rays of the sun shooting out in different directions. All are equally valid. And as we change our minds, we create different futures.

"Asking a psychic is, in a way, giving away your own power because we know the answers inside if we would only listen and trust ourselves. We also create our own future in every decision we make. Our higher self follows our choices."

A different blog reader commented on the fact that a predicted baby girl arrived as a baby boy. She suggested that we wait and see if the child is gender fluid.

Thank you for your insightful comments. There is so much to know. Combining our knowledge benefits all of the blog readers.

Take care.

Quote from a Psychic - Responsibility

"I am responsible to the Cosmos and to the Divine for the information which I give. What a client does with the information is their business, but I am responsible for the utmost clarity and for making sure that my clients understand the information to the best of their ability. I take that responsibility very seriously."

I'm back from vacation. You may have noticed that I didn't blog last week. I also missed the Psychic Fair, didn't meditate for 10 days, and didn't even check Facebook.

What did I do? I flew to Colorado with my husband and daughters for a family reunion. Then, we drove back to Tucson, visiting the wonders of the southern Utah national parks.

My trip motto? "I'm a viewer, not a do-er." We would drive to a national park, get out of our mini-van (yes, we rented a mini-van), look at the sights, take a walk, take photos, then get back in the mini-van and drive to the next site. No extended hikes. No camping in the desert. Just taking in the views, wandering around, and moving on.

In five days, we saw six national parks, and several other attractions:

Royal Gorge, CO (we rode the train!)
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, CO
Moab, Utah
Arches National Park, Utah
Canyonlands National Park, Utah
Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Zion National Park, Utah
Glen Canyon Recreational Area, including the Glen Canyon Dam, AZ, and
Lake Powell, AZ.

Even though I didn't interview any psychics, I had a fascinating conversation with a young woman who has begun seeing, and conversing with, the deceased. While I may not have sought out psychic connections, this is still my favorite type of conversation.

In addition, I had one moment of quiet reflection in Zion National Park where I saw plants in all kinds of environments, including some growing out of rocky ledges. Nature provides the proper environment for every plant to thrive, just as Earth provides the environment for every kind of life experience we care to create.

That's what I did last week. How about you? Anything interesting going on?


P.S. Thank you for all the terrific responses to my blog post about whether or not to believe psychic predictions. You guys know so much!

Believe it or Not?

Announcement: The Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be this Sunday, June 4, at the DoubleTree Inn across from Reid Park. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. I won't be set up at this Fair. I think they will be okay without me. Wink

Believe it or Not?

I believe psychics tap into a source of information which I am not privy to. However, my trust can be tested when I think they should have known in advance about something which happened, or I see that their predictions don't come true. How am I supposed to explain the lack of information when it doesn't come through, and trust the information which is shared? Should I believe it or not?

Last week, I was perplexed because:

1) A psychic friend died in March. Why didn't anyone have a clue he was going to pass?

2) Another intuitive had a tumor. Shouldn't she have received a heads up that something was amiss?

3) A friend was expecting a grandbaby. In two dreams, she clearly saw a little girl. Then the baby was born - a boy. Why would she have received the indication it was a girl when it was a boy?

4) A psychic had said that the birth was not going to be as quick and easy as anticipated. The stork would go "Ack!" That didn't happen. The grandmother told us that it had been a quick, easy, first-time birth.

5) Two years ago, a psychic said that my daughter would marry very soon and very happily. Not yet.

These situations make no sense to me. What is the point of being psychic if you don't know important things? What is the point of receiving an incorrect message? How can I have faith in any of this when the predictions are sometimes incorrect? How can I have confidence in all that I write and share?

On the other hand, I am elated when messages are correct. Yes, that happens too.

I've asked psychics why predictions don't come true. They tell me that people have free will. Often, predicted events change when people make a different choice. For example, they are going to school for archeology, then decide to go into culinary arts. They change their trajectory.

In several cases above, there was no trajectory to change. The baby boy was a baby boy. One explanation - the girl in the dream was elsewhere in the family. Hmmm.

Psychics also explain that timing is hard to predict, and that it is often difficult to read for people who are close to them. What they see can be influenced by what they want to happen for the person.

When I asked Laurie Hays why things don't always happen as predicted, she reminded me of the importance of skepticism. She told me that not everything works out in the order we think. It's important to keep an open mind, but it's also good to be a little skeptical. A little skepticism keeps us humble, keeps us practical, and keeps us intelligent. She considers the combination of a little skepticism and an open mind, healthy.

She added, "If you are always skeptical, you aren't open to anything new. If you accept everything, there is a gullibility. We need balance. I say that for all of us. I run the messages through my filter. I weigh them."

Another psychic remarked, "It's a good idea to see what a message feels like inside. There are times people say something and it doesn't feel right inside. Most of the time, messages from Spirit resonate within me. I know. Sometimes it takes a while to unfold. It isn't over 'til it's over."

In my meditation, I asked, "What am I to make of this? Sometimes people's predictions are correct and sometimes they are not."

This thought came to me: You are looking for a framework for mystical ideas. You are looking to organize the information so it makes sense. There is no sense. There is no organization. It is what it is. You can't apply a logical framework to a mass of energy. You can't put energy and ideas in a box. You can't promote psychics as infallible. They aren't. Sometimes it comes true, sometimes it doesn't. It's life. You roll with it."

Ah. Roll with it. We don't get to know everything in advance. We get hints. We make connections. We see what happens.

What have you experienced? Have the predictions you heard come true, or not? You can let me know via e-mail at
