Soul Week – How to Interpret Psychic Readings

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Am I Being Cursed?

John from Cincinnati wrote in:

Dear Spirit, I went to see a psychic healer who said there was a curse on me. He couldn’t say who sent it – just that he saw someone paying another person to hurt me. I have compiled a list of people from my past I think might want to hurt me. Could you let me know if it is one of them and if I am in danger?

-John B.

Spirit: It is not any of your ex-friends – though you have some healing work to do with a few of them.

John: Am I being cursed?

Spirit: The ubiquitous person the psychic saw is a symbolic representation of the Inner Adversary, aka the Devil. Of course, it is the Devil’s job to lead people astray. Each person has their own version of what he looks like to them.

In your case, he strikes at your self esteem each time you judge yourself as deficient as a human being. He wears the cloak of your inner Perfectionist. And the ‘person’ he is paying to hurt you is symbolic of the martyr in you who takes up the hopeless burden of self improvement.

Is it Possible to Change Destiny? Jim’s Reading

Jim from Van Nuys, CA wrote in:

Dear Spirit, I had an astrology reading a few years ago; and it still haunts me. The astrologist predicted I would get prostate cancer at the age of 59. Was he accurate? And if so – is it possible to change that destiny?

-Jim S.

Spirit: The astrologist was reading a trend in your chart. So, let me ask you: in what ways do you feel wounded in your manliness?

Jim: I never made it big the way my father and brother have.

Spirit: What do you consider big?

Jim: Multiple millions

Spirit: Yet you earn an outstanding living.

Jim: I do all right.

Spirit: Many cases of prostate cancer are based on penis envy – not the kind women are accused of feeling, the kind men feel by equating the size of their penis, symbolically speaking, with their bank account. Manifesting millions is not the measure of a man; yet so many men succumb to the seduction that says it is. What do you do for a living?

Jim: I’m a middle manager in a large corporation.

Spirit: What career did you originally set your sights on?

Jim: I wanted to be a filmmaker.

Spirit: What happened to that career?

Jim: Fatherhood.

Spirit: Another reason some men get prostate cancer is based on the way they measure themselves in relation to the man they wanted to be.

Now is a good time to free the artist in you; and let go of the idea you were here to live up to your father’s standard.  You are here to be a different kind of man.  Then, by the time you get to your second Saturn return, you can be free of prostate trouble.

How to Interpret Psychic Readings

Psychic ability is fallible in the sense that even those who weigh in as exceptionally accurate may also report information that is symbolic without realizing it. So, it is important to interpret psychic readings in that light.

It is also good to remember that the future is seldom set in stone. In that sense, some psychic readings may predict the probable outcome or trajectory of events from a particular moment in time – without taking the factor of individual choice into account.

A change of heart can alter the course of future events.

Relationship Week: Returning to Eden

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Toni from San Francisco wrote in:

Dear Spirit, are men trying to punish women because of the advancements women are making by treating them less respectfully in the matters of sex and marriage?

-Toni D

Spirit: Hello, Toni. Can you say a little more about your personal experience?

Toni: I keep meeting the same man, who – like my father, is a workaholic and a cheater.

Spirit: Do you have a current example?

Toni: Yes. The man I am seeing now is like my dad to the tenth power. He is taller, more handsome, and earns more at the same profession.

Spirit: How has he disrespected you?

Toni: He kept telling me he wanted to get me knocked up – and when I did become pregnant, he refused to step up to the plate. Is he just using me for sex?

Spirit: You are a victim of his ‘Madonna/Whore complex’

The Madonna/Whore complex

Toni: Can you clarify what that means?

Spirit: Since “Genesis”, men have divided women into madonnas or virgins and whores. These days – even with their support of women’s rights, men still carry the imprint of their patriarchal heritage. That means women – like yourself, who are sexually liberated, are apt to get treated like sex objects. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that many women contribute to the problem by playing the role

In your case – the Madonna in you is seeking your guy’s approval by trying to fulfill his fantasy ideal, while the ‘whore’ in you is using sex to hook him into a life commitment based on your desire for economic security. And he is refusing to bite.

Toni: What can I do to shift the situation?

Spirit: Stop trying to please him or hook him and see what happens when you are being yourself. And treat sex as sacred rather than casual.

Toni: Do you think he will ever be husband material?

Spirit: He could be – if you will stop doing what women have done to men since the time of “Exodus”.

Toni: What is that?

Spirit: Divide men into their version of good and evil: the Nice Guy and the Bad Boy (aka, the Hero and the Cad)

The Nice Guy/Bad Boy Syndrome

Toni: Isn’t there some justification to that?

Spirit: It is better to focus on understanding the psychology that drives the split. The Nice Guy (Hero) in men puts the Madonna in their life on a pedestal; and, when she starts to look down on him, the Bad Boy in him will knock her off of it.

Toni: Was I ever on his pedestal?

Spirit: Briefly. After that, you began making him bad for refusing to marry you.

Toni: How do we stop this cycle?

Spirit: By letting go of your ego agendas, and allowing love to be your guiding light.

Toni: That sounds like a return to Eden.

Spirit: Indeed. Only this time with a more favorable conclusion.

Questions to ask yourself:


  1. Have you ever tried to become a man’s fantasy ideal? If so – what happened to the real you?
  2. Have you ever used sex to pressure your guy into a commitment? If so – how did it impact the relationship?
