OK I admit it publicly. I am a full fledged, true blue, card carrying psychic. But - so what? So are you. Please don't tell me you've never had a psychic moment - I don't believe you. The phone rings, you think, "Oh, that's so-and-so." When you answer, it is so-and-so. You wake up in the night and think about someone you love, or else that person is in a dream or you find yourself wondering how they're doing. The next day you discover that the person in question broke a leg while skiing or totaled their car.
Every one of you has walked into a room at some time or another, and thought, "Something is wrong here," or "What's going on?" before you had a clue about the dynamics in the room. Once inside, it's clear that someone is angry with someone else - or whatever. C'mon. You know what I'm talking about.
Everyone can read what one of my great teachers called "the subtle realms." Some of us ignore that talent while others among us practice tuning in to it. We work especially hard to develop a language for interpretation, the really tricky aspect of the Art. I've devoted a considerable amount of time flushing out and focusing this knack but it isn't a special talent, reserved for the few. If I had decided to practice playing the piano instead, I would probably be pretty good at it by now. Just sayin'.
I'm not one of those psychics who predicts the future. According to the Cosmology of Reya, the future is co-created, moment to moment, by every person, animal, blade of grass, by every breeze, lightning strike, rainshower, by every tectonic movement, by the effect of the solar wind, the gravity of the moon pulling on the earth, etc. etc. etc. I'm certain dark matter plays a role in co-creating the future. A person would have to see around every corner in order to truly be accurate. Because I believe in a very complex version of free will, I wonder how anyone could truly "see" the future. That said, there are a handful of psychics who are pretty good at prediction, don't ask me how they do it. But I'm not one of them. I don't really want to know the future, to be honest. What fun would that be? I'd rather discover it, moment by moment, as it unfolds in the now, then later on, reflect on it as it becomes the past. That's just me.
The visions I receive are more of what I would call wisdom teachings, a way of connecting the dots that doesn't come from any known source. Mostly the visions arrive fully formed, though I do have occasions when I'm specifically clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient, too. While I was still involved with the Craft, I received a vision of what the initiation ritual could look like. This was after I had been initiated. The vision added some components to "flesh out" the ritual. Though I've been out of the Craft for many years now, that ritual format is still in use in that community. It had structural integrity that had nothing to do with me.
For a little more than a year I have been receiving visions that have to do with soul retrieval, destiny and fate. Boy does that sound pretentious. Sorry. I have received schematics and correspondences, trajectories of the processes. I have sketched the schematics at least 500 times in the last year. With every drawing, more details come to light. This week I received a flood of visions that connect our perception of stellar constellations to the processes of soul retrieval and fate.
A dark night sky is so full of stars that it's actually hard to pick out the constellations. They, and our stories about them, are a purely human construct. But I'm being shown how, by studying the constellations and the stories around them, I will be able to gain more wisdom about the shape of destiny, why we came up with the idea of destiny, and how it plays out in our lives. I'm being shown everything in the sky except the zodiac, by the way, a set of constellations that has been studied and quantified and described, that has been associated with human character and destiny for thousands of years.
This sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? Willow and Liza wanted to know about the visions, hence this post. I'm sorry this is the best I can do in terms of describing what I'm currently receiving.
True, I guess, even in the psychic realm, that a vision is worth a thousand words. Maybe ten thousand words. I'm getting a clearer picture in my own mind and heart of what the visions are trying to convey, but translating it, especially here in this very long post? Just silly, isn't it?
