Wisdom Totem: Frog
A friend of mine named Jerry spontaneously gave me this crystal about 20 years ago, saying to me, "Derek, meet Froggy." He'd aptly named it I'd say—it looks like a frog! Some weeks after, Jerry passed away. Since then, Froggy has been a cherished feature in my office. I love the symbolism of Frog, a totem of transformation. Frogs have an ability to adapt to two very different worlds. They can leap back and forth between their ancestral watery homes and the lighter atmosphere of land.
Whenever a frog shows up in a psychic reading, either in my mind's eye or through my Postcard Tarot—I apply this interpretation to whatever question my client has in mind: "Whatever transition you are going through—having a child, starting college, moving to a new country—you can make the leap and adapt to that new foreign environment. Plus, you can always return, although it will be in a changed form."
I've leapt into many new transitions in my life—adapting to my role as a psychic symbolist, moving from Hawaii to New York, bringing my work to Tokyo once a year—and with each and every leap, Froggy has been by my side.
Thank you Jerry! I cherish your gift immensely.
Tuning In To Synchronicity
When my first client of the day arrived at my front door he walked down the hallway, and before entering my apartment, immediately took off his shoes. After crossing over the threshold, he let out a sigh and said, “Hoo Boy! These are interesting times!”
I doubted he was only referring to his personal worries. He had global issues in mind as well. Are those any less important? I replied, “We're all grappling with these times of flux.”
As I poured him a tea, I made a mental note to keep my eye on how he was coping.
THE PSYCHIC CAT
This true psychic story illustrates how symbolic ideas mirror life. I hope it helps you uncover how a coincidence or dream can illuminate your path.
A woman consulted me about a career issue recently. Since she was out of town, we conducted the session by phone. Considering the distance, I offered my vision for her in the form of an emailed photo.
For an hour, we each sat at our respective computers viewing the image together. It featured a cat sitting next to a dog.
Symbolic pictures offer amazingly clear messages. If you look, they can be psychic!
For example, click below to see a photo of cardboard fruit on my mantle. It says:
Fruitfulness, Abundance, Creative Display, A Representational Copy, Summertime, Diversity, Nutrition and, A Complementary Arrangement—among many other things.
One day, I noticed all my clients were actors. One of them posited an explanation: "It's Monday. Broadway goes dark. It's our day off."
I suppose that makes sense. Still, why is it that in less than two weeks, I read for Alex, Alexa, Alexandra, Alexis, Lexi, and Alejandro? Within just a few days I meet Derek, Derrick, and Derick, Ann, Annabelle and Anne. Not all in a row, but still... And once I've noticed all that, Meghna, Megen and Meghan visit me!
In the course of one afternoon, all my clients are concerned with the same topic. It could be a school exam, being jilted by a lover, getting pregnant. Doesn't matter. But my mind wonders why the Universe delivers themes to me this way.
Calling and Interpreting Psychic Signs
Sometime last June I sat down to read for a bright young woman I’ll call J. In her session, she asked her departed father for a sign of reassurance that he was watching over her. A few days later, J’s dad delivered on her request—and in mind-blowing fashion!
Read on to see how it all came to pass.
The Nature of a Psychic Dream
I woke up last Sunday having dreamt a nightmare. I was lying on the beach with a friend. When I lifted my head from the sand and glanced toward the ocean, I was startled by a skyscraper-sized wall of water, ready to crash down upon us.
You’ve probably had one of those dreams where you’re being chased? I like to imagine that my mind contains a a psychological pressure valve; that fearful dreams like these are a release of pent up anxiety.
When A Reading Is Wrong
A client wrote to me:
“Hello Derek, I had a reading with you a year ago and wanted to provide you with feedback. Nothing from the reading has materialized, thus I’m hoping that maybe this year the events predicted will happen.”
I appreciate your feedback, and interest in following your reading...
A client writes,
I was wondering if there is a significance of having a dream and then a month or even years later having that same exact scenario play out in real life. Have your other clients reported having this phenomenon?
Doodling For Psychic Impressions
Did you know that by doodling you could foresee aspects of your future? I’ll show you how— through three samples below.
Doodling, while I read for my clients, keeps me engaged with my imagination. And I’ve found it helps uncover remarkable psychic insights.
Here’s a photo of a doodle I did that looks like hieroglyphics, symbols of an ancient mysterious language; just like the language of the psyche!
