Are you the one who always sees it coming? Can you a friend has been dumped even before she even spills the beans about her heartbreak? You might be the psychic lightning rod among your friends.
With this gift, you can do a lot of good for those around you. But it can also be a bit of a curse. Use your power correctly and you deepen the bond with your closest friends. Develop an arrogant superiority about your psychic strength and you could be shunned as a haughty know-it-all with unsolicited advice. Here are five tips for you if your connection with close friends, family and acquaintances gives you vision into everyone’s destiny!
Mum’s The Word
This is the easiest position to take. If nobody asks for advice, a good friend refrains from offering unsolicited commentary that goes against expectations or hopes. It is really quite simple to avoid discussing your psychic visions. Giving someone news they do not want to hear often sets you up to be the enemy. It can make you more than a psychic lightning rod; it can make you the lightning rod for criticism.
Embrace the Positive
If you see a vision of a friend being dumped by a lover, start the conversation with a cheerleading sense of this person’s independence. After the dumping actually takes place, you will have already primed your friend to believe that there are lots of available partners for such an independent spirit.
Underscoring breakthroughs and positive changes that occur after transformative events is your basic job description as Psychic Lightning Rod. If your friend is about to have a great, upbeat moment, cheerleading is what is called for from the moment you see it coming. Otherwise, prepping your friend to make a soft landing is your calling.
Embrace a Medium
People take advice better when it comes from an authority. If you are having visions of a friend’s future, you might want to offer to give this person a Tarot reading or an astrology reading. Brush up on your skills by finding a medium that works best for you.
When you give a friend a reading, a few things can happen. First, you will be able to hone your initial vision through the direction that your chosen medium illustrates. This offers your friend a clearer vision of what you are seeing or feeling. Second, your friend might fill in some of the blanks about what is going on in response to the imagery of the Tarot reading or the symbolism of the astrology chart. Third, and most importantly, when you involve a medium, you do not seem like just any friend offering unsolicited advice. Your vision has a proper context in which to be discussed and considered.
Create a Relaxed Environment
If you decide to tell a friend something that seems urgent and necessary, create a safe place for this person to receive your words. The news you are delivering is serious, big and spectacular. You cannot walk up to a friend you bump into at the grocery store and say, “I had a vision your dad got hit by a car,” and expect a hug and endless gratitude for sharing your gift.
Find a comfortable place where people relax and are open to visionary descriptions of coming changes. Perhaps your house or apartment has a meditation room that can comfortably hold more than one person. Is this a retreat-like setting where you can discuss intimate matters without interruption? Can you give a friend a space in which judgment is not passed?
When you do set up the get-together, avoid overly dramatic language. There is nothing worse than building up expectations only to have a friend feel let down when all you deliver is old news or bad news. Being a good friend means being a great listener. You can of course approach the whole topic indirectly. Get your friend to talk about her own insights. You might find that she already knows what you’ve seen.
Insist on a Reality Check
If you believe you are the final word, the universe will rebel against you. When you share your vision with a friend, explain to them that you may be biased and suggest they seek a neutral reading from a gifted psychic. You should not radically alter the course of a friendship because of your ability to see the future. Maintaining a normal relationship despite your gift is the hallmark of true friendship.
