I AM a New York Feng Shui Consultant; I am NOT, however a psychic. Please don't get me wrong, I do believe there are some very special people out there that have true "Gifts." I'm not one of them and actually, I'm glad. I don't believe I'd want to know the future for myself OR see it in others.
Years ago while working in The New Center for Wholistic Health I was speaking to a woman who had stopped by the desk. I don't recall what we happened to be talking about but I do remember quite clearly she told me she could "smell" death on a person.
I believe I backed up a bit as I was speaking to her. She relayed a story to me I have never forgotten:
She had been to a wedding not long ago and was having a wonderful time. That is until her nephew who she adored came over to give her a kiss and greet her. She told me she knew instantly that he was going to die-very soon. There was nothing she could do about it and she was heartbroken.
Just a few weeks later she told me, her nephew had been in a horrendous car accident...and had passed. Although she said she had finally accepted her "gift" I thought it more of a curse. She did say she saw other things as well....events, marriages, pregnancies. I believed her and just hoped that she didn't begin to tell ME anything. She didn't.
This came to mind the other day when I received my fifth call in two weeks all beginning with "Hello, are you the psychic?" I had no idea where these calls were coming from and most people couldn't tell me exactly how they found me. One finally said I was on a "psychic hotline." How I got there I will never know! I have to say that while I believe SOME people have a gift, I'm not sure they are manning hotlines at all hours of the day and night.
Most of the psychics I've heard of have very long waiting lists, whether you are read over the phone OR in person. I wondered whether to tell some of these people that called my thoughts---most sounded young and were ready to give me their credit cards!
I am still getting calls and now I try and "council" these people. I feel sorry for them that they must be so desperate for SOME information about whatever is bothering them that they will call a hotline. I ask them to try and find a reputable psychic who comes by recommendation.
I answer my phone as Feng Shui Long Island. It makes me wonder: Do YOU believe in psychics? And if you do, are they on "hotlines"?
