It was during a private reading with a client turned friend, that I asked if she had plans to go on a vacation. She said, “yes actually I do, we are going to Vegas during the first week of October”. I sat there a minute, because what I felt physically the moment those words left her mouth felt like a sharp pain in my chest.
I went on with the reading trying to act like there was nothing wrong, and was actually able to get through the rest of it without leading on that I had a bad feeling about this trip. As a psychic you have to be careful telling people bad news… after all we are humans, and we make mistakes too. I did NOT want to ruin her trip! We have to be very careful about what we say and do while in a session with our clients. If you have had an accurate reading before with a Psychic, there is a good chance you will put a lot of stock in what one says to you.
People seem to really latch on to what we say. Which is just another reason why, as a psychic you always work with a high standard of ethics. You must understand and remember at all times, the amount of responsibility being an intuitive comes with, and work with that. Check and recheck before just opening your mouth, and that’s what I did. I went back and asked my guides and the Universe AND my cards the same question over and over again in my head. Even while talking to her about a totally different subject, I was trying to get to the bottom of this negative feeling I couldn’t shake about “Vegas”. I had to make absolutely sure this wasn’t…like…. indigestion or something.
At the end of the session I still couldn’t bring myself to tell her anything that would cause her to worry, or to cancel her trip. What if I was totally wrong? What if I completely misunderstood the messages I was receiving about the subject and then she would be too freaked out to go. I didn’t want that, because I wasn’t 100% for sure what this was.
However, when I left, I messed up… and I’m glad I did. I told her to be safe on her trip, she instantly perked up with interest. She could tell I was nervous about that trip! I told her to just message me a few days before she had to leave and I would do another reading to see how I was feeling about it. I assured her it was fine and I was probably just misinterpreting the messages I was getting… I knew I wasn’t though.
About a week or so before she was to leave, she asked me if I got any other feelings on Vegas. It just so happened that her sweet mother had recently fallen ill and was hospitalized, I told her I think that’s probably all this feeling was. It made sense to me. Right? Her mom got sick right before her trip? That’s probably all this was. But that didn’t sit well with me either. I knew there was more!
On the night of October 1st just after I had fallen asleep a little after 10 pm, a man in Las Vegas opened fire into a crowd of people attending a concert at the Mandalay Bay, this would become the deadliest mass shooting by one man in US History. He killed 58 people and injured 851. I woke up the next morning to a text from Erica. It was simply a news video of what had just happened, no words from her… just this devastating clip of heart break. Erica was set to leave the next day for her trip. It turns out she probably would have been just fine, and I must have known that. I suppose that’s why I had such a hard time telling her not to go.
I could feel the danger there, and she could see the hesitation on my face that day. I have to tell you, from that day forward I have been much more upfront about my intuitive advice when It comes to trips, or anything really. This situation played a huge role in learning to TRUST myself, even if it means telling someone something they don’t want to hear. Better safe than sorry right?
