As of lately, I’ve been reminiscing a lot about my parents and my brother whom I lost at a really young age. Even though I know they’re in a better place, and probably doing some Godly “chores,” it’s hard for me to accept that I’ll never be able to physically embrace them again. So when many people come to me for readings, I emphathize with their losses and the emotions they are feeling.
Unbeknownst to many, it’s extremely difficult for me to contain myself when a parent whose child was taken by cancer or a heinous crime is seated in front of me. I see their tears during a reading and I battle with myself not to break down in front of them. This is also true of all my clients– from people who have experienced a tragic, unexpected death to those who have suffered the loss of a dearly beloved pet to others grieving about the passing of an elderly relative that they prayed to God to take due to their suffering. I realize that some people are the same as me, trying to hold back their emotions during a reading.
I want you to know that do not have to do that. Though my gift may make me seem inhuman to some, I share the same emotional pain, confusion and disbelief as my clients. Feel free to express anything you are feeling from tears to joy. Just know you are not alone in your suffering and hopefully my reading with you has helped you heal somewhat. I know that everyone, including myself, is in need of healing and reassurance that their deceased are at peace.
I know I cannot see all my clients as soon as they would like, but I promise to blog a few times a week from now on. Hopefully my blog will offer some comfort to my clients until we meet again for a reading, book signing, lecture or impromptu visit.
