Q: Why don’t you take medical or pregnancy questions?
A: Remember that old saying “Jack of all trades, master of none?”
There is a little bit of specialization in any profession. Some car mechanics have a knack for transmissions, while others have a talent for electrical systems. Some fashion designers work in Milan, others work for J.C. Penny….you get the idea.
The psychic world has its specialities too. Some of us are mediums, and can communicate with crossed over loved ones very easily, for others it seldom happens. Some psychics work with missing person criminal cases, some don’t. Some are very flamboyant for people who need drama to hear their message. Some of us are more no-nonsense for those who need a low key approach to be comfortable.
Medical readings is one of those specialties. Ironically, I don’t do medical readings because I have a strong medical background. If if someone asks that sort of question I automatically click out of “intuition mode” and go right into “clinical-logic mode”. For example I am often asked if a couple will get pregnant soon or the gender of the baby if someone is expecting. CLICK! My first thought is about serum hcgs, and sonograms and all sorts of nice scientific stuff.
Sometimes a distinct physical sensation comes to attention during a reading (see mud vs marinade part 2 to see what I mean by “attention”)…if that happens, I will describe it to the person exactly as I get the sensation with NO medical interpretation. At the very most, I’ll just in a very general way ask them to please take good care of their health and consult a health professional for any physical concerns .
Which begs the question…do I think medical readings are valid?
When it comes to health and medicine, I am Holistic through and through. I think the person’s intuition about their health has a strong place in their health care…like the person who feels something is wrong, even if modern science can’t find anything, or a person who on a deep level knows they need a different treatment…all of that is valid in my opinion. If something’s not right, it is worth a second look. You know your body better than anyone, don’t you think?
But should a person be diagnosed or treated according to a “psychic” diagnosis or reading? Personally, I don’t buy it – even if it wasn’t illegal to diagnose and practice medicine without a license. That is a whole different thing from following your own feeling and own intuition – someone else’s intuition is too far removed to be that trustworthy.
After working with cards since 1992, and doing hundreds and hundreds of readings over time…the intuitive information is just too symbolic to be useful in consistent, trustworthy medical way. There is too much room for personal interpretations and misunderstandings. The best way to use intuition in medicine is to:
- follow your own intuition about your health. If you think something isn’t right, keep talking, keep asking questions, keep learning until you find an answer. If you keep getting the same answer over and over, though, you might want to re-think and check for denial. Denying a problem doesn’t make it go away. Listen to your heart. You’ll know when other people are right too….
- keep a healthy spirituality in conjunction with a healthy mind and body. Psychic readings is a wonderful tool for that. Readings help us to learn and grow as a person, as well as expressing spiritual beliefs.
Carolyn Myss works as a medical psychic. You can read more about this topic in her books. I tend to take some of her work with a grain of salt, admittedly. This is just my opinion, but her books seem to try SO hard to make her intuitive work acceptable to the Judeo-Christian / modern medicine mainstream that she looses her real message in the process. I’ve never met her individually…that is just my perception of her first couple of books.
Of course THE person to study would be Edgar Cayce. His volume of work is huge..I don’t know his accuracy or success rate, but he is by reputation the authority when it comes to such things. If you want to learn more about medicine, health and psychics, you might want to start withhttp://www.edgarcayce.org so you can form your own opinion about psychic medical readings.
Personally, I think the best thing is a combination – the best of THREE worlds, mind, body and spirit – mainstream medicine, holistic / natural health, and healthy spirituality. Combining all three gives us the best of all worlds, and intuition has an important roll, particularly in the latter.
