The psyche communicates in symbols, metaphors and allegory. When I’m performing a reading and a topic comes up, I close my eyes and let an image come to mind. It’s usually incongruous with whatever subject is at hand. But I don't let that deter me from investigating why it appeared and am rewarded for doing so. Just because a symbolic image is peculiar or out of context doesn't mean it can't speak to the issue. If you accept an image from your psychic intuition, and walk around it asking questions, it will inevitably speak to the subject at hand.
My client brought up a dispute within her family about a house in New England. That’s when I saw the log in my mind’s eye. It was teaming with ants, grubs, and beetles.
“So this is a large, old country type house?"
I thought of all those insects traipsing in and out of the log. “Was it ever a community center or hotel?”
“My grandmother ran a school out of it back in the day. My brother feels nostalgia for the place and says we can fix it. I want to tear it down and rebuild.”
So what’s my psychic vision for this story? While they have many preservation tools that could restore the house, the image I received suggests a place too far gone. About a month later my client emailed to say the demolition date was set. I said, “For December?”
“How did you know that?”
I took a guess between December, January and February because it’s easier to cut down a tree when it’s cold, not sappy. Clues to psychic visions are always there. You just have to hunt for them and consider what you know about them.
I love playing a game with the Universe that I simply call, Coincidence. When I quietly call for one, it undoubtedly appears—as long as I’m on the alert. When it occurs, I get tingles.
A common question my clients ask is, "Derek, when do you see this or that happening?" All symbols can tell time...
When you’re in a psychic reading with me, I’m uncovering insights from very basic psychic symbols. Like Rock, Anchor, Hook, Cloud, Turtle, Mountain. You’ll be surprised by what I can squeeze out of a rock when it comes to the psychic messages it holds. You'll have fun with this.
Here is a hypothetical dilemma a client might present to me. This condensed version of how a reading might flow is strictly for the purpose of demonstrating the numerous insights that can be drawn from the symbol of Rock.
Bibliomancy has been another divination tool I increasingly employ. Bibliomancy is when you open a book to any random page. With eyes averted, you point a finger down onto a sentence or picture. Whatever is directly under that finger is the message you agree to ponder. Any book or magazine works for this. It doesn’t have to be spiritually based. Magazine ads can also be particularly filled with strikingly clear messages.
When I sat down to write this post, I had nothing, and everything in mind for a topic. I was paralyzed by too many choices. Perhaps you know the feeling. For guidance on the matter, I turned to my Postcard Tarot. As is my custom, I cut the deck and pulled the third card down from the cut. When I saw the photo I thought, I know! I’ll play Let’s Find The Psychic Messages.
First, I’ll share what the card portrays (without showing it to you so you can imagine it as you will). Then I'll dissect the symbolism in it to extract its psychic insights. Now let’s see...
In 1995 I'd founded a successful home-spun ice cream company in Honolulu, where I lived from 1987-2007. The business initially flourished, but due to the nature of distribution to the islands, I found that my venture wasn't ultimately sustainable. By 2004 I was drowning in debt, so I turned to tarot cards for help.
- Do the cards suggest when the coronavirus crisis might end? If so, when?
I see the world grappling with this coronavirus for the long term, the same way it does other maladies such as polio, measles, flu, herpes, hepatitis, HIV, etc. We just have to live with it now. As far as the crisis phase of the situation, I see August of 2021 as a milestone time when there is a dramatic diminishment.
- What do they say about when there might be a vaccine?
A spider’s web caught my eye early one morning recently. When I peered into a small hole at the center of the web, it took me half a minute to spot its creator. She was frozen in wait, deep within the grass. I thought, hunting requires a great deal of patience.
Upon first viewing this picture, you see a seagull sitting atop two words: Rodeo Beach. Then you observe the Bay Bridge of San Francisco in the background. Your eyes then glide over the ocean and the sky. And then they return to the subject of the photo: the Seagull.
