I am secretly (or not so secretly) obsessed with psychics/mediums, etc BUT I had never been to one. I mostly just watched every single medium show on TV and have been learning more and more about all things spiritual. I was kind of afraid to go to a psychic or a medium because I was unsure of what they'd say. I wasn't sure if I should go alone or with someone. I was just NERVOUS!
I found out about a series of psychic fairs in New Hampshire and was planning on going to one this weekend with my sister and some friends. Schedules didn't work out and I was going to have to go alone. Should I still go? Should I save the money? Should I avoid the thing that makes me nervous?
And I had two very different types of readings.
First I had a card reading from Angie D'Anjou and honestly had no idea what to expect. I'm still not completely sure how cards work, but it was really interesting! She also did some numerology, going into numbers based on both my and my husband's birthdays.
The gist of this first reading was that I (or maybe my husband) have big things coming. Big, exciting, awesome things, that I/he/we have to go for and not let anyone stop us. She mentioned a move (not sure about that one) and when I/we move to only unpack the things I/we need and get rid of the rest. Also to let of go people and things that no longer serve me.
I got a tiny bit teary-eyed during this reading (I'm a crier). I can't remember exactly what she was talking about when this happened, but I think it was when she was talking about really going for things and not holding myself back. I know that I tend to do this when I start to get momentum moving in scary (good scary) direction.
I didn't get too vulnerable during this reading. I feel like I kept my walls up a bit via jokes/sarcasm. (Typical) I feel like it was a good first reading for me to get my feet wet though before diving into the deep end with my second reading of the day (where I could no longer avoid being vulnerable or full on crying).
My second reading was with Barbara Fe, who listed herself as a medium, but mostly I went to her because of my sister's recommendation. It was AWESOME. She was awesome! I mostly loved this reading because I felt like she was so genuine and just got me. It was kind of weird. I felt like she just knew my soul and what I was struggling with.
We mostly talked about my life, but she also connected with my Grampy, which was really cool! She had said almost the exact same description of him to my sister when she did a reading for her, and the way she described him seemed perfect. And she talked about a woman who wanted to give me her strength and guidance and was an aunt, great aunt or close family friend (like an aunt) who dressed more masculine in life. (Mom? Not sure on that one.)
She talked about a time I was sick. (Hello Crohn's!) She also talked about a move and that she didn't think I would stay at my current job or in New England (hmm). She said I belong working on something in health, but not like a hospital, that I am a humanitarian, and need to be doing a job to change the world. (Well shit. YES PLEASE!)
She knew that I struggle with having friends who get me, who are into active, outdoorsy things -- running, hiking, yoga -- who are into spiritual things -- psychics, manifestation, mediation -- who are drama free and just get me, but that I will find that awesome friend who gets everything soon. That made me cry. Yep. Lots of tears.
She really encouraged me to connect with my guardian angel(s) and learn who she/they are, especially if I feel alone since I don't have that friend I described yet. She encouraged me to get my own angel oracle cards to use for daily guidance (hmmm.. cool, but I don't know how!) and to know that my angel(s) have my back at all times. If I know that then I can be more confident (like to solve some problems in my last post about female runner probs) and if I hear "Don't go" in a situation, to listen.
Overall I had a great first experience with getting readings. Next steps for me are to follow Barbara's suggestions in connecting to my angels. It seems so weird even saying that. I am such a closed off person most of the time, so opening myself up enough to connect in that way seems difficult, but I am promising myself to at least try.
I can only hope that opening myself up like that isn't as exhausting as my reading! Who knew emotions were so tiring! I could not stop crying all night. Once you turn the emotion switch on for me, it kind of gets stuck. So there I was, crying all night, cuddled on the couch with the dogs, watching Shameless and Googling angel cards...
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
