I am always an advocate of utilizing common sense first, and then if necessary, use my intuitive gifts to help a client. In some cases, clients may just need to talk to someone that is “safe” and receive a validation reading with good, sound guidance and a little bit of empowerment thrown in for good measure.
This past week, I encountered a potential client who was in a very difficult and desperate situation. With a limited amount of time to help him, he informed me he was a homeless, disabled veteran sleeping on a friend’s sofa. He had been lied to by many psychics and other people who use their gifts, purporting to help people. He wanted to know when he was going to get a financial “windfall” and other things various psychics had promised him. He further informed me he had given away a lot of money to various people who promised him all sorts of things — mostly financial gains, yet he received nothing in return. In short, he was lied to, scammed and taken advantage of by disreputable people.
I know gypsies and some psychics need to make a living, but karmically, they should never harm anyone or prey on their fears and weaknesses. However, we live in a world with a lot of disreputable people who have agendas and do not take other people’s feelings and needs into consideration. Everyone should use a little common sense on a regular basis — or a lot, in order to have a better quality of life…regardless of their financial situation.
I totally understood how he felt, but there I was, being accused of who knows what, and being asked, “When am I going to get what I was promised by you psychics?” I informed him that I never promised him anything or lied to him. I further told him this was my first encounter with him, and that he should not to blame me or any other psychic who did not do this to him. I informed him what services I offered and suggested that he use a little common sense in the future.
To Recap: I tried to provide this potential client insight into his situation and offer some very badly needed common sense. I wanted to help him heal from the pain of having been taken advantage of and scammed, if possible. I ran out of time; all I could do was send a prayer out into the universe for him. My wish is that this man finds his way out of the situation he is currently in and is able to create a better quality of life for himself. Don’t you think he needs to stop seeking “psychics” who intend to take advantage of him? I certainly do!
