Lessons in Nature: Trying Too Hard to be Psychic

Over the summer, I took a road trip in a rented RV with my husband and two kids to Yellowstone National Park. Because why would we not spend more time cooped up with our kids during a pandemic?! 

The closer we got to the park, the more I started to check in with a feeling I had bubbling up inside: this geological natural wonder was going to be some kind of a major energetic psychic mind blowing event for me. Big time. Of course this place would have a bunch of weird cool energy that I was personally going to tap into!

Yellowstone. I’m on my way!

Upon arrival, I sat in the exact same spot everyone has, or will, sit at some point as an American tourist waiting for Old Faithful to blow. My kids complaining, the lack of shade, the guy on the phone next to me without a mask, the other person next to me eating Chinese food—none of this phased me. Dudes. I’m about to get to the Next Level as a psychic! 


I mean, it did its thing, but it was the same big fart of an event as it was when I was 8 years old watching it with my cousins. No psychic revelations or visions. And yes, I was in a deep state of meditation, thank you.

But then something interesting happened when I let go of having my mind blown. I got completely mesmerized by a breathtakingly beautiful clear teal pool that seemed to extend all the way to the center of the Earth. As I stood there staring into it, I saw the tiniest bubble float to the surface from what must have been the other side of the planet.

Pop! Just like that, he was at the end of his journey. I was so struck by this little guy. How far he had nonchalantly traveled looking for his destination—how chill he seemed about the whole thing. The magnitude of what I just witnessed almost made me cry. I spoke quietly through my mask: You made it! You f-ing made it.

To me, this moment was parallel to the psychic practice of setting intentions and sending them out into the universe with no attachment. 

You’ll get what you need exactly when you need it. Sometimes your intention has to travel all the way through Middle Earth—but it will come to you one way or another. 

What intention would you send out to the universe if you had the absolute certainty that it would manifest in its own way and in its own time?
