Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Debra Robinson, author of A Haunted Life.
One of the most common situations I run in to as a psychic is the person who comes along with their friend getting the reading and, when asked if they want one too, they fearfully say, “I donâ€™t want to know.” Usually, when quizzed, they will spill the fear of being told they’ll die. Most people don’t want to know that!
The truth is, it’s hard to predict physical death. There are certain tarot cards that can represent it, but it’s usually a combination of several cards rather than just one. With palmistry, there can be indicators of “something” dangerous coming, represented by a cutting line or trauma line, or a gap in a line. But, other lines often make up for deficiencies in one particular line, short lines, or broken lines in a hand.
I remember a local story about a group of rowdy teens who went to an area “psychic.” Apparently, one fifteen-year-old girl was told she’d die in a car wreck. She was so traumatized by this that she couldn’t go to school. Her mother wrote to our local paper about it. It didn’t take any psychic abilities to intuit that it was more a case of an irritated psychic than any clairvoyance at work! Still, this was a terrible thing to do to a child. Not long after, the “psychic” closed up shop.
The week before my twenty-four-year-old son was killed by a drunk driver, he asked me for a reading. I was in a hurry, so I looked at his palm and did a quick tarot layout. And I didn’t see his death. I interpreted what I saw as a huge change coming, which fit with what was going on in his life. I’m grateful I didn’t understand what I was seeing; it would’ve been unthinkable. Now, I think that my interpretation wasn’t too far wrong. The biggest change we’ll ever undergo is our transition to the afterlife; I just didn’t realize it was James’s time to make that journey. I’m glad I didn’t see itâ€”it was better left unseen. Maybe God in His mercy holds back our gift at times like these.
My story and his are detailed in my book, A Haunted Life: The True Ghost Story of a Reluctant Psychic. The uncanny “coincidences” leading up to his death and his own clairvoyance about it (the pictures he painted of a giant heart; the song lyrics he wroteâ€””As close to tortured as I’ve ever been is lying here wondering, if my heart might beat away and away and away”â€”they all fell into place when we met the man who received James’s heart and he uttered James’s favorite phrase: “It’s all good.”
So, don’t be afraid of a psychic predicting your death. It is difficult, if not impossible to do (not to mention a bad business practice). And many psychics, myself included, believe only a Higher Power is truly privy to this information.
