I take a seat and drink my tea with purpose. The leaves that remain will tell of my past, present and future. I’m asked to twirl the cup three times. She dumps the dribbles and sets the cup on the table. “This is a busy cup”, she says and the session begins.
I sit quietly and listen attentively. She starts with a description of who I am. I appreciate the adjectives she uses but I am skeptical about all this. I can ask questions but I prefer to let her speak. I interject with the odd “umm”.
My curiosity peaks when she asks, “Are you a writer?”
“I wish”, is my reply.
“You have lots to say. And your stories are written in a unique style. It’s how you speak”.
Now I am questioning if she knows I have a blog. Has she read some of my posts?
“You have humor in what you write”.
How does she know this stuff?
The conversations in my head are non-stop. I am answering my own questions while at the same time focusing on what she is saying. She is hearing words, getting vibes and describing details that make me realize there is more to this. Is this “clairvoyance”?
As the session progresses my skepticism dissipates. I believe she is the real deal. She is looking into the near future, 7 months to 3 years down the road. The constant discussion in my head stops. I am really listening now.
Will the “offer” present itself?…
Will there be success?…
Am I going in a new direction?…
