CLAIRE’S CHALLENGE: Mixed results with another reading
It happened again. Another reader of The Little Sage’s Scribe volunteered to provide me with some names to practice on and I received information about them…. but I didn’t pick up these people had passed. In fact, I wasn’t even close to that! I am so disappointed this week as I especially wanted to give a good reading… but I don’t think I did that.
Luckily for me, the volunteer said they could make sense of a lot of the symbols I saw (even if I couldn’t) but I don’t feel overly happy with the outcome. What is strange is that I actually know this volunteer personally. Albeit, we have not been in contact with one another for about 8 years or so – but perhaps I got a bit cocky thinking this would be easier than other ‘cold’ readings and didn’t focus as much? Whatever the reason, I was originally very disappointed.
To prepare for the reading, I went through the same process as usual – I grounded myself, protected myself and did some meditation. I started on the names provided. It’s strange, but seeing as I ‘know’ this person – it did not make things easier… in fact, I struggled to get information coming through.
For the first name I was provided, I received the following:
- Understanding, aloof, can be a bit ignorant
- It’s complicated
- Inner turmoil
- Common-place, common-life
- Science à somehow this is related to you
- You’re friends but with a romantic link
Ummm, how embarrassing. This was actually a grandparent who had passed – so clearly no romantic link there. Mortifying. Anyway, the volunteer luckily could make sense of this information in relation to their father (the name I was reading was actually the volunteer’s father’s father – still with me?). Through the volunteer’s feedback, they were able to make sense of what I was receiving and actually the word ‘science’ made sense to them, as both the volunteer and their father studied science (which I didn’t know)!
The next name I was provided, I quite clearly received the following:
- Crazy (in a great way)
- So fun and lively
- Needs to slow down and smell the roses
- Sense of entitlement
- Time to grow up (not in a harsh way)
- Peter Pan complex
- Red hair?
- Saw someone who looked quite alternate and assume this was her (as described above)
Oh my god. I didn’t think I could get any worse. This was the volunteer’s late grandmother who definitely did not rock the red hair/piercing/alternative lifestyle. However, the strange thing is – this information made a lot of sense to the volunteer again in relation to the name I was provided. There were no direct hits to relate this information to the name; however the volunteer was able to relate this information to a situation which incorporated the name.
Another name was provided and I received the following:
- Good morals deep down
Ok, so at least I made no crazy calls there – but again the volunteer was able to make sense of these symbols and signs – particularly mistletoe (I found this to be a nice connection that made me smile).
For the final name provided, I received the following:
- Unsure of herself
- Always looking for something better – this is ok!
- Needs reassurance
- Needs you to boost her up when she’s down
- Silent operator
The information made sense to the volunteer; however there were no major hits.
I then recorded information for the volunteer which I got specifically for them. I pulled three angel cards which were: spiritual growth, harmony, meditation. I received specific information in relation to these cards which referred to the volunteer’s everyday life and their spirituality. I also received quite vivid information about a particular toxic person around the volunteer and was able to explain the person and their traits.
The volunteer was able to connect with this information – thank God!
So… definitely not my best work, but at least the volunteer could connect with some information. I don’t know what it is, but I can’t easily (read: can’t at all) determine when people have passed over, as seen in recent blog posts.
Looking over this post, I have come to the conclusion the information I received under each name was not about that person but from that person for the volunteer. When I look at it in that context it makes sense – it seems all of the information was about the volunteer (and not actual facts about those who have passed). I have also learnt that I can’t try to interpret all of the information I get, which is what I tried to do here. When I originally saw the feedback, I almost died with embarrassment but, re-reading through it, I see that I had interpreted it the wrong way and from the volunteer’s point of view it made sense.
I spoke with Helen about this (not the results – just that I was so off… hello romantic connection?) and she said it is not up to me to interpret the information and piece it together. The volunteer will hopefully understand, which in this case I think they did.
I also found an interesting ‘coincidence’ that this volunteer and I are going through quite a similar situation. We are heading in different career paths to what people expected of us, often with a lot of people questioning our choices (and sometimes, we question ourselves too). We are noticing differences between us and those who surround us – not necessarily in a bad way – just that we are perhaps learning different lessons and are focusing on a spiritual side. It is as though we are going through the same type of ‘shift’ and it was reassuring to hear someone else’s opinions and strategies for how they will enter this new chapter in their life.
So, thank you to the lovely volunteer who provided these names and who provided me with the most detailed and informative feedback. It is very much appreciated and I have also learnt a lot from you, so good luck and I look forward to seeing the exciting things you achieve in the future!
