“You were arrested, taken into a cell away from your family and locked away. Your arms were chained to a wall above your head, and you were left to die. The only things to occupy you as you awaited death were the thoughts in your head. Thoughts of your family: ‘Can they survive without me? What if they all get hurt and I’m not there to help them? I didn’t do anything wrong, but maybe I should have just kept my head down… should have kept quiet… then I wouldn’t be in prison & my family would be ok.’”
Kevin, the psychic giving me this past life reading, didn’t know about my childhood in and out of courtrooms or the countless times my words had been twisted against me. He didn’t know about the time the judge ruled to separate me from my younger siblings because I was a “liar” and would “corrupt” some of the people I cared most about in the world. He didn’t know that the thoughts that occupied my head in that past life were the same ones that continually ran in and out of my head throughout childhood.
As Kevin kept reading my past life, I recognized every emotion he mentioned. I remembered all the fear, the guilt, the heartache, the betrayal, the negative self-talk… everything. I knew it all far too well in this lifetime. With this reading, I knew it was time to let those emotional pains go. So as Kevin read, I cried my way through a box of tissues. By the end of the past life reading, even though I felt overwhelmed with heartache (and tears), the only thing I really wanted to say to Kevin was “Thank You.”
He was able to validate all the turmoil from that past life and, in doing so, gave me the space to process the emotions I’d been unknowingly clinging on to for lifetimes. Receiving that reading was a powerful experience. Now, 3 years later, I still remember the gift of that reading. I remember the permission it gave me to feel, cry, and be completely and authentically broken in the release of my pain. That reading gave me a fresh start – a way to let go of pains I didn’t even know I carried – until the only thing left was gratitude.
A lot of people go into psychic readings expecting fairy tales, but psychic readings aren’t always bright and happy. They can get dark. They can poke at emotional bruises you thought you cleared already. But because these readings focus on you as a spirit – as a little, infinite ball of light – they also offer a way out of the darkness. They offer permission, perspective, and a way to find more healing in your present.
