By now you would have seen my call out for people who would be kind enough to allow me to practice my newly found (sometimes crap) psychic abilities. Well… we’ve opened the floodgates and have had a LOT of interest. I am more than happy to keep accepting photos/names/circumstances at the moment and will let you know when I ‘close the books’. (Details below on how you can be involved…)
This week my post is about Jodie* a lovely lady who provided me with not only a name, but also a photograph. I would like to re-iterate I do not know Jodie, nor the people in the photograph. I would also like to point out, in some instances I may be a bit vague with detail, but this is because of confidentiality and I would rather not disclose someone’s personal details.
(*Jodie is not her real name… we’ve changed names and locations to protect the privacy of those involved).
So, Jodie sent through her email with photo and questions. I sat down and did the reading for Jodie, then I emailed back with the results. Jodie was so kind and patient and offered me constructive feedback outlining where I was right, where I was wrong, and where I was totally crazy. I will not censor any of my bad moments as it’s only fair to be honest about my results… I will firstly put in my views, followed by the response of Jodie.
The supplied photograph was of a couple, and I was immediately drawn to the female. She was radiating happiness and I immediately knew she is a lovely person. I got that she always gives a lot in life and expects a lot of herself. I saw that she has quite a stressful job and was very certain she was in a particular profession. So particular in fact, I even saw her wearing her uniform. I saw some symbols surrounding her that I linked to her job. I felt quite dizzy and light-headed and was feeling quite ‘off’.
I then concentrated on the man in the photograph who I thought was a very funny guy, the life of the party. I felt as though there was some kind of secret there but I wasn’t exactly sure what. I saw his profession as an accountant, surrounded by money and figures. I found it quite hard to breathe – I was drawing in very deep breaths but felt this wasn’t enough.
I then concentrated on the two as a couple and saw very clearly they are the life of the party. They are very social and very loved. I very clearly heard the city ‘Adelaide’ and assumed the couple lived there/live there/will live there. They have been together a very long time and need to find a balance between work, play and family life.
I then (unintentionally) began to do automatic writing. I got some absolutely random words like parrot, mayo, Oscar de la Renta. I then heard the name ‘John’ and the phrase ‘uncontrollable fear. Subsiding pain. Home again. Loved.’
Yes she was a very happy, lovely person. She did give a lot and I’m sure she expected a lot too. That was not her profession… but the symbols you saw around her was her job. The uniform you saw her in may relate to a circumstance in her life. She passed from a complication with her brain which might explain the dizziness.
I don’t know about his secret (if he even has one). His profession is not around finance/accounts. The breathing may relate to grief, but this cannot be confirmed.
The couple were the life of the party, very social and loved. They had been together a long time. The lady lived in Adelaide briefly. John is the male’s best friend and was the best man at their wedding. The phrase about subsiding pain may relate to his grief.
….So… an ok start. I am really disappointed in myself that I didn’t get the female had passed, and I am sorry to Jodie – I hope I didn’t let her down. I got some good information, but it could be a bit wishy washy.
Next, I concentrated on the name I was given… Jodie! I was given the name of my volunteer – which I felt I could better connect with.
Felt Jodie to be highly sensitive/emotional.
Although organised, can be chaotic.
Piggy in the middle.
Parents split when young. Used to hide out in a giant tree to ‘escape’.
Competition at work – don’t participate – keep working hard, remain diligent and the managers will make the right choice.
Need to come clean with something.
Pretty girl around you with brown hair and pale skin – you will work with them in a charity/organisation. She will be/is a good friend.
You carry an unfounded guilt with you – don’t feel guilt anymore.
My right hand then began to itch uncontrollably. This was going on for about 20 minutes, until my other hand began to itch. They were so itchy they were burning and hurting (thanks Jodie!!!). I thought Jodie must be earning a good income but she is spending it too quickly and to slow down and save a bit more!! (I didn’t get she is reckless by any means… just to watch out at the moment).
I then again (unintentionally) began to do automatic writing. I got: “Life is short! Cease the day! Oscar wouldn’t want you waiting around! Do something! You have so many ideas brimming over – they will be a success! You’re going in a totally different direction with you career – this is ok. This is good. This is optimum. Take the lead and charge! Laugh with people. Rupert. Dolmio/Domino.”
I’m very sensitive/emotional.
Very organised but can be chaotic!
I don’t travel much but do love to.
Not sure about piggy in the middle, but think I know what this relates to.
My parents didn’t split and are very much in love. Not a giant tree, but I did use to ‘escape’ outside in the nature.
I like this part about work. I’m not in direct competition, but something that exactly matches this. I’ve been trying to stay out of it, thinking ‘it’s got nothing to do with me and the managers will sort it out’.
Have come clean about some things in the past, so not sure if this relates to it?
My sister works in China.
Lots of pretty girls around me with brown hair and pale skin – not sure about the charity but will keep this in mind.
I am good with money, but have been spending a decent amount on necessities. I have been spending a lot lately. Point taken. I will be more careful!
I don’t know Oscar, Rupert, Dolmio/Domino. But I really like this. This makes absolute sense to me and my situation!!!
So there you have it – some hits, some misses and some weird names in between. I am definitely getting better at just ‘rolling’ with things and if something is weird, I don’t question it, I just write it.
I really thank Jodie for being so brave in firstly, allowing and trusting me to practice on her personal information and secondly, allowing me to share her story for others to see. Thank you Jodie – and stop and think of my poor burning hands before you do some retail therapy this week!!
If anyone else is interested – please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your photograph/name/situation. Please note at this stage I do not feel confident enough to meet with anyone, but hopefully that day will come!
A NOTE FROM HELEN: For the next few weeks, Claire’s Challenges will focus around the practice with our readers, so she’ll keep sharing her results. I’ve seen a sneak peak of next week’s: another photo reading with some eerily accurate results!
