TRUE BEAUTY COMES FROM WITHIN




Becoming beautiful inside is what radiates beauty evergreen.


This means looking at ourselves as people and reflecting what makes us who we are. Remember the world does not owe us a living, we are what we ourselves have created. Ask yourself, "Do I like who I am?" "Am I a good person?" When you give "of" yourself and start loving people in a unconditional way, liking them without being judgmental you begin to radiate beauty from within, you radiate it from your soul. It is through this you will achieve "Inner Beauty".

DIVINE TIMING




Recently I had a client, in fact she's been asking for a reading every week with the same question. I don't keep notes as I prefer to rely on my guides to tell me what's happening around a client, anyway as I use tarot cards to begin a reading I began laying them out and every time the same cards turn up and of course I have to give her the same answer, the situation is just the same and the answer is just the same that she will have to be patient for she will get her wish but we are bound by divine timing.
Time and time I hear from clients, when will it happen? can you give me a time? Sometimes I am lucky and I am given dates and timings but more often that not I am just told Divine Timing. It's not a cop out to give to the impatient but firstly there are no clocks nor is there a sense of time as we know it in the spirit realms and secondly it takes time to manifest the optimal times for the best result.

If you want to experience more harmony, happiness and effortless manifestation of your desires in life, you have to let go of all resistance towards whatever that comes your way. The reason why we fight against what comes is because we think that we are being kept from having our way. But the truth is whatever that happens is exactly what is meant to be, and it is all part of the process of the manifestation of our desires. Everything is happening in divine timing and we can flow if we do not limit ourselves.

Sometimes you were expecting to meet someone on a certain day but when that day comes, the person cannot meet you for some valid reason. Flow with it and meet that person on another day. The reason why you might be resisting change of events is because you have been anticipating it and thinking a lot about it. But when it doesn’t happen at the expected time, you don’t know what to do in place of it because you don’t feel like doing anything else other than that which you already had in mind.

If something doesn’t happen at the expect time in the expected way, it means it’s going to happen at a better timing in a better way. Don’t resist what is happening but instead focus on doing something else. You will discover things gone a much better way after the whole event has passed. You did something important which enhanced the meeting with the person that would not have happened otherwise. Hence it is better not to resist what is happening when it isn’t necessary, but to just go with  the flow.

Just know everything happens at the RIGHT TIME AND THE BEST POSSIBLE TIME and only spirit knows this and we have to learn to trust, they do know what is best for us because spirit love us. Spirit have the ability to know what is ahead and any complications so they decide what is the best time to manifest our wishes. If we were to rush things before the optimum conditions were reached it could prevent our wishes manifesting, this is why we need to trust and believe in Divine timing.

JUST WHAT WE LIKE TO HEAR "ANOTHER REASON WHY CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR US"


The story from the "DAILY MAIL" below is about another good excuse to eat chocolate of course we are referring to dark chocolate which contains a good supply of iron and rich in those beneficial antioxidants Flavonoids


Dark chocolate could make walking easier for the elderly: Eating a bar can help patients with artery problems in their legs.
Patients with Peripheral artery disease, which affects leg arteries, tested twenty people aged 60 to 78 could walk better after eating dark chocolate

For most of us dark chocolate is just a tasty treat – but for the elderly it could also help them to walk, according to a study.
Researchers found elderly people with artery problems in their legs could walk a little longer after eating dark chocolate.
Peripheral artery disease, or PAD, is a cardiovascular disease most commonly affecting the arteries of the legs and is strongly associated with age, with high rates in over-70s.
Reduced blood flow can cause pain, cramping or fatigue in the legs or hips while walking.
In a pilot study of patients with PAD, 14 men and six women aged from 60 to 78 increased their ability to walk unassisted after eating dark chocolate. 
On separate days, they were tested on a treadmill once in the morning and again after eating a 40g bar of dark or milk chocolate.
After the dark chocolate they walked on average 39 feet further and 17 seconds longer than earlier in the day. There was no improvement after eating milk chocolate.
The researchers, whose findings were published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, suggest that compounds found in cocoa – polyphenols – may reduce oxidative stress and improve blood flow in peripheral arteries.improve arteries’ blood flow.
The dark chocolate in the study had 85 per cent cocoa so was rich in polyphenols. The milk chocolate had less than 30 per cent cocoa.
The researchers said that a larger study with long-term consumption is now needed to confirm the improvements.
 
    The improvements were modest. However, the benefit of dark chocolate polyphenols is 'of potential relevance for the quality of life of these patients,' according to the study’s co-author Doctor Lorenzo Loffredo, assistant professor at the Sapienza University of Rome in Italy.
    Levels of nitric oxide - a gas linked to improved blood flow - were higher when participants ate dark chocolate. Other biochemical signs of oxidative stress were also lower. 
    Based on these observations and other laboratory experiments, the researchers suggest that the higher nitric oxide levels may be responsible for dilating peripheral arteries and improving walking independence. 
    Doctor Francesco Violi, study senior author and professor of internal medicine at the Sapienza University of Rome, said: 'Polyphenol-rich nutrients could represent a new therapeutic strategy to counteract cardiovascular complications.'
    In the pilot study of those with Peripheral artery disease, 14 men and six women aged 60 to 78 increased their ability to walk unassisted after eating dark chocolate

    The researchers said the improvements linked to these compounds in dark chocolate need to be confirmed in a larger study involving long-term consumption. 
    American Heart Association spokesman Dr Mark Creager said that it’s far too early to recommend polyphenols or dark chocolate for cardiovascular health.
    He said: “Other investigations have shown that polyphenols including those in dark chocolate may improve blood vessel function. 
    “But this study is extremely preliminary and I think everyone needs to be cautious when interpreting the findings. 
    “We know from other studies of antioxidants - vitamin C and vitamin E for example - that these interventions have not gone on to show improvement in cardiovascular health.”
    Other polyphenol-rich foods include cloves, dried peppermint, celery seed, capers and hazelnuts.

    ONCE AND A WHILE



    ONCE AND A WHILE


    Think of me once and a while
    When you feel down, hopefully I’ll make you smile
    I’d like to think you are doing just fine
    Even though it’s been such a long time

    When you’re sad and you’re all alone
    You’re always thought of you’re never on your own
    For promises I make I don’t break
    My loyalty is forever for the promises I make

    Unconditional love means loyalty guaranteed
    It’s based on giving irrespective of one’s need
    It’s selfless and non judgemental
    Forgiving and truly eternal

    It matters not what you’ve done 
    And the past is long but gone
    But what dwells in your heart now is important
    Let mistakes heal and live in the moment

    I hope I touched your soul
    And I know time has taken it’s toll
    All I ask is once in a while think of me
    For I loved you unconditionally, enough to let you fly free

    SMOKING IS MORE DEADLY AND ADDICTIVE THAN IT WAS 50 YEARS AGO


    The article below is from the Daily Mail below. We should all know by now that smoking is bad for us, however the charity "The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids" has discovered the lengths tobacco companies are going to make sure smoking is highly addictive

    Why smoking is more deadly and addictive  than it was 50 years ago: Charity reveals the underhand tactics tobacco companies now use to make sure we’re hooked

    • Chemicals added to cigarettes to ensure addiction, make smoke easier to inhale, reduce harshness and increase the speed nicotine hits the brain
    • Today's smokers have a higher risk of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease than in 1964 despite smoking fewer cigarettes


    Cigarettes are more dangerous than ever due to a wealth of tactics adopted by tobacco companies over the last 50 years, a charity has warned. 
    The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has produced a revealing infographic which lays out exactly how cigarettes have changed in the last five decades. 
    Doctors at the charity say that cigarettes today pose an even greater risk of disease than those sold in 1964 when the first warning about the health dangers came from the Surgeon General in the U.S.

    Deadlier than ever: The report  illustrates how cigarettes have changed over the last 50 years
    Deadlier than ever: The report illustrates how cigarettes have changed over the last 50 years

    The charity's research is based on a review of scientific studies and tobacco industry documents, as well as the Surgeon General's report.
    It found that today's smokers have a much higher risk of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease than in 1964  - despite smoking fewer cigarettes.


    This is due to 'changes in the design and composition of cigarettes'.
    The charity claims that over the past 50 years, tobacco manufacturers have designed and marketed ever more sophisticated products that are 'effective in creating and sustaining addiction to nicotine,' more appealing to new young smokers and much more harmful. 
    'They took a deadly and addictive product and made it worse, putting smokers at even greater risk of addiction, disease and death,' the report, Designed for Addiction, says. 

    The addictiveness of cigarettes has also been increased by raising nicotine levels.
    The report claims that manufacturers also add ammonia, which increases the speed which nicotine is delivered to the brain .
    Another tactic is to add sugars, which increase the addictive effects of nicotine and make it easier to inhale tobacco smoke.
    Cigarettes today deliver nicotine more quickly from the lungs to the heart and brain. 
    And by altering the taste and smell of cigarettes, tobacco manufacturers have made it easier for people to start and continue smokin.
    They have also made tobacco smoke less harsh by adding levulinic acid. This makes the smoke feel smoother and less irritating.
    The report states: '[It is] clear that tobacco products – and cigarettes in particular
    – are highly engineered to expand the appeal of these products and facilitate
    the consumption of and addiction to nicotine, a highly addictive drug. 
    'Tobacco companies also know that almost all new smokers begin their addiction as
    children and that smoking is distasteful for new smokers, so they carefully
    design the product to appeal to this important market. 
    'The companies have spent huge sums to research the design of their products and ensure they
    achieve these goals, even if the impact of these changes also makes the product more dangerous.'

    Understanding Pain: What to do about it in less than five minutes?

    I came across this helpful video by way of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association, being that I am a TN sufferer myself. It does apply to all chronic pain however. Reiki works well with me as being a reiki master, I can reiki myself when necessary and that helps me through the worst attacks by helping me relax as when you are tense pain is felt much more.

    TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA






    Trigeminal neuralgia is sudden, severe facial nerve pain. It's often referred as the "suicide disease" because of the significant numbers of people taking their own lives before effective treatments were discovered.  Trigeminal Neuralgia has been known now for centuries. It is probably one of the worst kinds of pains known to man. An estimated one in 15,000 people suffers from trigeminal neuralgia, although numbers may be significantly higher due to frequent misdiagnoses. Trigeminal neuralgia is relatively rare an estimated one million people worldwide suffer from trigeminal neuralgia. It usually develops after the age of 40 and affects women in a 2:1 ratio. 

    The pain in the face has been described as stabbing, piercing or like an electric shock. The intense pain can last from just a few seconds to two minutes each time and can last continuously for a couple of hours or so and random times during the day. 

    In most cases it only affects one side of the face (unilateral), more commonly the right side. Rarely, people with trigeminal neuralgia have pain on both sides of their face (bilateral).

    In 80-90% of cases the pain is caused by pressure on the trigeminal nerve, the largest nerve inside the skull.


    For more information on this debilitating ailment please follow the link here TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA or the tab at the top of the page it will take you to THE TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA ASSOCIATION UK WEBSITE.  

    The aim of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK is to offer support and encouragement to TN patients, their families and friends, and to provide information on treatments currently available as well as details of any advances being made in the management of this excruciatingly painful and debilitating condition. Another vital part of our work is to raise awareness amongst medical professionals, particularly GPs and dentists, regarding the diagnosis and treatment.

    THE DANGERS OF ULTRA VIOLET LIGHT


    The following article is from the Daily Mail and I'm posting this as its the time of year when people throw caution to the wind and at the first sign of sunshine lie out in it and toast themselves often without sun protection, which is crucial if you happen to have very fair skin. I've written many times about the dangers of UV light on this site follow the link below for more information on the dangers of UV light.




    Teacher, 30, told the mole on his back was nothing to worry about is dying from more than 50 tumours which have now spread to his brain and heart

    Series of failures by medics leaves father-of-one with terminal cancer
    Father Jordi Akhurst spotted mole on his back in 2007 and went to GP
    But hospital dermatologist twice told him there was nothing wrong
    After doctor removed it 'as a favour' Mr Akhurst was found to have cancer
    Following scans, experts then missed disease when it spread to his heart
    He is now on 'last resort' drug and hoping to be given access to trials

    Jordi Akhurst, 30, has been left with more than 50 tumours around his body after doctors dismissed his concerns about a mole on his back
    Jordi Akhurst, 30, has been left with more than 50 tumours around his body after doctors dismissed his concerns about a mole on his back
    A teacher has been left with terminal cancer after doctors refused to remove a suspicious mole from his back for nine months.
    Jordi Akhurst, 30, sought medical help after spotting the worrying blemish on his skin - but was repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.
    Over the next six months, the spot started to bleed and crack but a dermatologist insisted it was benign.
    His GP finally agreed to remove the mole because of Mr Akhurst's worries and sent off samples for routine analysis.
    Within days the father-of-one's worst fears were confirmed when hospital staff broke the news that he had skin cancer.
    The cancer has since spread to his brain, heart, adrenal glands and lymph nodes, leaving him with more than 50 tumours around his body.
    Experts say spotting the disease as early as possible is key to surviving cancer but Mr Akhurst, dad to a five-year-old son, Luca, says experts repeatedly botched his diagnosis.
    The maths teacher, from Plymouth, Devon, said: 'I started going to the doctor about a mole on my back in 2007.
    'My GP said they don't remove them anymore and I was referred to a dermatologist at Derriford Hospital [in Plymouth] who said there was nothing wrong with it and he would leave it and see how it went.
    'Three months later all the original problems were still there. It kept bleeding and it was bleeding so often it wouldn't be long before there was a blood mark on my shirt and I would have to change.
    'This was happening every day. I wasn't too worried - it was more annoying than anything else.

      'Six months later the dermatologist said it seemed unchanged and it was all fine.'
      Mr Akhurst wasn't happy with the diagnosis and went back to his doctor, who once more referred him to a dermatologist.
      Mr Akhurst shows the scar left from the removal of the original mole which doctors dismissed

      He said: 'I went back to my GP after nine months because I wasn't happy and I wanted it taking off.
      'She referred me to the dermatologist again and he was quite insistent he wasn't going to remove it.
      'It was black, raised, cracked and bleeding - you don't have to be an expert in skin cancer to know something wasn't right.
      'I wasn't panicked at all. I just thought it was a case of getting rid of it.

      'I'm 30 and have a terminal illness - it's all very well if you're 70 but I was hoping for another 40 years of life ahead of me.'

      Cancer sufferer Jordi Akhurst

      'My GP ended up removing it as a favour. They're obliged to send it away for tests and a week later I had a phone call from the hospital in a complete state of panic.
      'I went in and was put in a room with a few people who were extremely apologetic, including a specialist cancer nurse and the dermatologist, who I haven't seen since.
      'At the time my son was being born so I just wanted anything that needed to happen to happen so I could get on with my life.'
      Nine months after his original visit to the GP, Mr Akhurst was finally admitted for surgery on his back.
      He said: 'They did the first operation and they weren't happy with the lesions and felt there was more they could have chopped out.
      'I had a second and then third operation. They kept having to open up the scar and search for more and more.
      'I went from being told there was nothing wrong to having this giant scar. In the following months I went for check ups but I felt they were quite brief and a bit useless.'
      A dermatologist at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital said there was nothing wrong with the original mole
      A dermatologist at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital said there was nothing wrong with the original mole

      After the three operations in 2007 to remove the infected tissue, Mr Akhurst hoped he had beaten the disease, but in January last year he noticed some new lumps.
      By the time the results came back on April 15 last year it had reached his adrenal glands, which are at the top of the kidneys and his lymph nodes.

      REGIONAL THREAT - SKIN CANCER RISKS IN THE SOUTH WEST

      Figures show there are around 10,000 new cases of skin cancer every year and it's the fastest growing cancer for 18 to 30-year-olds.
      One in four diagnosed with melanoma, the most serious form of the disease, do not survive beyond five years.
      Mr Akhurst's plight emerged after shock figures revealed that the number of new cases in Devon and Cornwall is double the UK average.
      According to a new campaign from Public Health England (PHE) you are twice as likely to fall prey to the disease if you live in the two counties.
      But the heath group is urging anyone who spots anything strange on their skin to see their GP.
      PHE centre director, Professor Debra Lapthorne, said: 'The campaign message is clear, if you notice any unusual or persistent changes to your skin, you should visit your doctor.'
      He was diagnosed as being Stage 4 - which is terminal.
      Mr Akhurst was given pneumotherapy, which he said was hailed as a 'wonder drug', but didn't well respond to the treatment.
      The Bristol University classics graduate added: 'I was going up to the hospital every three weeks for four months and being put on a drip.
      'Even though it didn't work I felt well enough to carry on with my job and my day to day life.
      'They left me for two to three months to see how I was and after a scan they found the cancer had spread to my heart.
      'Doctors told me it was untreatable and any treatment would leave a hole in my heart. They said the tumour was new and it had grown quickly.
      'I had a specialist heart scan and it found the tumour wasn't new - it had been missed on previous scans and was actually treatable.
      'Despite all this I was still well, but I became ill in February this year. I was behaving quite strangely and couldn't do simple things like use my phone.
      'I found out I had 10 new brain tumours so the disease had progressed quite severely.'
      Mr Akhurst is now taking Zelboraf - the last of the licensed drugs he is able to take.
      If he doesn't respond after six months he will try to take part in clinical trials to be able to use unlicensed treatments.
      He said: 'It is very toxic and doesn't make you feel great. After this six months there is no more treatment. The best case scenario is that by the time I stop responding I would be put on a drug trial.'
      Mr Akhurst is now urging anyone who sees something unusual on their skin to see their doctor. File photo
      Mr Akhurst is now urging anyone who sees something unusual on their skin to see their doctor. 
      He added: 'I would be very happy to take part in trials. They said I have between one and five years when I was diagnosed in April last year.
      'I'm 30 and have a terminal illness - it's all very well if you're 70 but I was hoping for another 40 years of life ahead of me.
      'I didn't realise it would spread to where it has or so aggressively and quickly.
      'I was quite resentful to be honest - there's a slight injustice in it. I know people are dying of cancer all over the world but when you're 30 you think you have lots of time left.
      'There's nothing I did to contribute to it. I didn't sun worship or get burnt.
      'I want people to know that skin cancer exists. I had a mole and I had it removed and I really thought that was as far as it would go.
      'I don't want to be an anti-sun bed person and they're not part of my story but if people could think twice about using them and use sun cream - whether it's factor five or 50 - just think about it and use some protection.'

      IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN WHEN COMMUNICATIONS OF ALL SORTS GO AWRY




      This time Mercury enters retrograde from June 7th 2014 until July 1st 2014.

      When Mercury goes into retrograde all communication is affected one way or another, not just between people in relationships, but mail, transport, computers, phones, you name it, things can become difficult, delayed, mail gets lost. So if you have anything that needs signing do it now or delay things until after July 1st. This is generally a busy time for me with clients with relationship problems. if you find yourself in this scenario, DON'T overreact, hang fire and count to ten, the difficulties will pass at least this time it's just around three weeks.

      For those who don't understand what Mercury Retrograde is:

      An apparent backward motion of the planets is called a "retrograde" motion. It occurs in several stages. At first the planet seems to stand still, then it backs up through the signs, stands still again, and then resumes its forward motion. The amount of time that a planet spends in retrograde motion depends on the planet's orbit, varying from about twenty-two days for nearby Mercury to about 160 days for distant Pluto.

      When Mercury is retrograde, it is considered to be a time of problems with interaction, travel and even the simple basic workings of things. It is also thought that the general averse aspects of a retrograde planetary motion carry over into the lives of the people born under them as a part of their lifetime astrological chart.

      PSYCHIC VAMPIRES ~ SOMEONE WHO DRAINS YOU



      You may have heard of the term ‘Psychic Vampires’ and it’s unlike the fictional characters of Vampires who suck the blood of their victims portrayed in films etc. There is a connection however, in this connotation the ‘Vampire’ is sucking and leeching something and it pertains to ‘Psychic’ energy.

      We all know about these characters, we have all met them from time to time, the relative, the work colleague or the friend. I use the term friend loosely as a psychic vampire is not a true friend. 

      Psychic vampires suck the energy out of others, some may not be even aware they are doing this, but I maintain if they had any sort of conscious they would realise and not do this to others. The so called friend, who dumps all their tales of woe on to you, more than happy to tell you all about themselves and all their problems. They are very needy characters in general and self centred, so wrapped up in themselves, who think the world revolved around themselves. 

      A healthy relationship is a two way process, there is give and take from both parties, equally they can exchange problems but equally they support and listen. Psychic vampires don’t listen, they seem oblivious to anyone else, so happy to dump all their problems on someone else, but don’t listen when that someone has troubles of their own.

      When we are going through problems there is often a lot of negative energy attached, negative energy pulls us down and exhausts us, it affects our psyche, our aura causing it to shrink back and this affects the efficacy of our chakras, compounding further stress, immune and health problems. So if a psychic vampire comes along with their tales of woe they dump all this negative energy on to you. I’m sure you know and have experienced this, the so called friend dumps all their problems on to you, you listen, the so called friend feels better having got rid of their negative energy on to you and you are left feeling exhausted and drained.  There is a natural series of laws within the Universe where there is a constant source of energy exchange. e.g. the psychic vampire dumps negative energy onto the listener at the same time leeches positive energy from the listener, so they go away feeling the better for it and you the listener has had all your positivity sucked from you. 

      I’m not saying we shouldn’t exchange problems and don’t listen, far from it, but there should be a sharing, a give and take on both sides.

      So what can we do to protect ourselves? Well various crystals around us can help (There is a section on psychic protection elsewhere on this site giving details) and we can form a protective barrier around ourselves psychically, by visualising we are surrounded in a sealed bubble of golden light, but this has to be kept up constantly and sometimes the psychic vampire is leeching so much even this doesn’t work. We can try giving them a hint, more often this doesn’t work as they are wrapped up in themselves, or tell them politely, and even this sometimes doesn’t work, so what can you do? When it gets to this stage, the relationship is in danger of becoming toxic to you, its draining and exhausting especially if you have problems of your own, so the only way is distancing yourself from the psychic vampire. Sometimes if they have any conscious that will jolt them into realising what they are doing, if it doesn’t and this won’t work with particularly self centred individuals, the only thing left to do, is to make a clean break and walk away from this toxic relationship for your own good, for how can you deal with your own problems or help others if your health and well being is being affected by the sheer exhaustion of the psychic vampire leeching all your positive energy.

      I'VE BEEN TOLD I'M PSYCHIC-HOW CAN I DO READINGS?

      MY AURA


      I am often asked I've been told I'm psychic, another medium told me this, how can I go about doing what you do and do readings?


      Most of the time its often a psychic on a premium line has told them this, or they have misinterpreted what they have been told.

      A common misinterpretation is many people don't know the difference between a psychic and a medium and confuse the two. Everyone of us has a potential to develop our psychic abilities as it's one of our natural senses, animals have retained theirs for they use it regularly for survival, and this is what we have this sense for. Over our evolution as human beings we no longer had to make use of it, so we stopped using it  (most people have) you may like to call this sense intuition but intuition and psychic are one and the same.

      Mediums on the other hand work on a different vibration they are able to communicate with disincarnates i.e. spirit, people who have passed on from this life on earth. Not everyone has this ability it is achieved through many lifetimes by souls who have evolved to a spiritual level, they understand the rules of the Universe and have gone through many tough challenges in their many lifetimes, experiencing situations from all sides and understand the concept of unconditional love and thus been gifted this from Spirit. Mediums are also psychic as they have evolved through this vibration to the higher one enabling them to communicate with the spiritual beings that reside there.

      Psychics are able to tap into the Auric field that surrounds all living things, this is an electromagnetic field of different layers and it contains details of our past, our present, and our potential future. This is how they do their readings. The confusion from the public arises as the client has been given details of someone who has passed over, so they think the psychic is able to communicate with this person's spirit, however your auric field can contain such details. They go on to say that an event will happen as the psychic can obtain details from the clients aura and its assumed this is coming from the deceased spirit. 

      Psychics need to tap into a clients vibration to do a reading, whether, its their voice vibration, a photograph, a piece of jewellery or writing as they are picking up feelings from this. Mediums do not need to have this direct link at all, for they communicate totally differently and often work with spirit guides and helpers to act as an intermediator between the client's own guides, and yes we all have guides in spirit to help us through life, instilling guidance and strength to help us through our lifetimes challenges. I have been asked who is my guide? well we don't always have one many are transient to help us with different situations.

      Coming back to the original question, of how can I become a psychic and do readings? Well it is something that needs work and guidance, often this can take many years, many develop on their own to a certain extent but eventually its going to need guidance from an experienced Medium and teacher, this isn't something you can achieve through Skype, internet or books alone but in a regular circle with kindred souls and be willing to be dedicated often for years, it won't happen overnight. Whether you will become a medium well that is up to spirit who will judge if you have achieved the criteria of lessons necessary to understand the Universal laws.

      As for becoming a psychic and reading for the public there are many codes of conduct and ethics to master and good counselling skills are necessary. We all have personal responsibility, what you say to a client can have an effect on the client, some good, but many can have a detrimental effect and just because money doesn't change hands, if you are doing this for free, don't for a moment think you are not responsible for a consequence that may happen as a direct result of what you have said to a client,  you are responsible for everything you say and in this day and age where there is a society willing to proceed with litigation this is very important.

      These skills cannot be achieved overnight, if often takes many years and there are no guarantees you will ever be good enough to read for the public no matter how many years you put in.

      A final note there are as many bad psychics as good out there and with the bad ones they don't seem to realise the concept of their actions and have personal responsibility for what they say, who is to say they are correct in their interpretation of what they see in reading for a client? If you are meant to go on to develop and use this ability, it will happen for it will have been planned before you incarnated on this earth, if its not in your destiny, it won't no matter how hard you want this.
