My Reading

Susan,

You’re a beautiful and gentle soul. You have an almost child-like energy.

You feel anxious and sometimes fearful, and that you have a man that balances that by making you feel secure. He’s masculine, and grounded, pretty traditional, a “man’s man,” and his influence calms you. Good for you for finding him. You seem really stable together. 8)

You have a budding psychic ability, and I think you’re interested in exploring that, but your fear is blocking you. It’s also blocking your profession. You’re in the allied health professions, but not in a traditional field, something a little more fringe, but it’s still helping people. Something to do with mental health, and clearing blocks. You’ve begun to get serious about it recently.

The issue is that you feel a little fraudulent because what you do is supposed to make people feel stable, but you yourself do not feel stable. So you think “who am I?” and you question whether you’re good enough.

The answer is a little complicated. First of all, NO, you’re not an impostor. Everyone feels like that–google “impostor syndrome.”

But you’re going to use your talents to stabilize yourself, just like you think. But not in the way you think. The core of the issue is that you feel you lack a strong identity. When you find that identity, you’ll notice an upswing in libido, followed by a confidence you’ve rarely felt in life. When you feel that confidence, you’ll know through to your bones that people need your help and you’re just the woman for the job.

When that happens, it’ll be an awakening for you. It’ll also mean that your strong relationship will change–it won’t be a bad thing! But your husband and you will have to adjust to the “new you.” He gains a lot of significance from being there for you, and he’ll be a little lost when you stop needing him so much. Make sure you honor him, and make him feel special, important, and needed!

You’re going to rock the world, I’m so excited for you!!

So accurate that I am practically speechless … I honestly don’t know what to say … amazing.

Thanks so much for this.

Photo Reading: Karen

This is a photo reading I did with Karen. The only information I had going into this reading was her name and this photo. Here’s how the reading went!

My Reading

Karen,

You’re beautiful, and I can see that you’re frustrated.

You have children, but I don’t think you’re with their father anymore. I think that’s part of the frustration you’re feeling. It’s coming across as a jade about dating and men, like you’ve been hurt and you’re not sure it’s worth the heartache or effort because you’re not finding the quality partner that you so want (and feel like you need for your children as well).

One thing you need to get straight is that you’re gorgeous. I know you have a block in this area, but when you’re at your best, you radiate beauty. People tell you that too, they notice, but you dismiss it when they say so, like they’re just being nice or whatever. They aren’t: you have tremendous capacity as a woman, and it would make me happy to see you let that shine through.

This is a challenge to you: decide powerfully to feel love. To make decisions and hold beliefs based on love. Let the hurt and disappointment just wash away. When you feel it creep in, hold love in your heart. Think of your children. You’re happiest when you bathe in love, and you make better decisions from your heart that way.

The reason is that you have such a powerful heart. I can see you want to help people, but I can also see you don’t feel like you’re living up to that desire and potential.

You have a job in which you talk to a lot of people, but you’re not really set on fire by it. I’m confused about what the job is. It seems like a pretty small company, and something to do with image, like a fashion consultant (but that’s not it).

You enjoy it to some degree, but you know it’s not your path. Again, make decisions about this path based on Love, not fear. Your love is your strength in this world.

What will set you on fire to do? Don’t worry about what’s going to pay the bills. Figure out the fire first, then the bills. (Use your head though, don’t jump into anything before you have your ducks in a row).

Focus on expressing love in every area of your life, and you will see the life you’ve always wanted unfold before your eyes.

Her Response

Wow! I’m amazed, seriously. You pretty much nailed everything dead on.

I am very frustrated that I’m not finding the quality partner that I want. That is an excellent way of putting it. It’s nearing 3 years since my divorce and I really wasn’t expecting to still be alone at this point. I have had a few short relationships but nothing that has lasted. I guess my self image issues stem from my ex husband and the fact that I keep throwing myself out there and getting rejected.. just last weekend I decided to go out on a limb and ask this guy out that I’m friends with on Facebook. He usually starts up chats with me first and we go to the same gym. So, I sent a message casually asking if he’d like to go to a movie sometime. Not only did he not respond; he deleted his Facebook account 2 days after i sent the message. Ouch! Needless to say it’s been on my mind a lot lately. Not only for me but also for my 2 children. I’m missing being a family…. and tired of going to movies by myself. :)

Thank you for the compliment! I believe it when you say at my best I radiate beauty.. I have had more than one person call me sunshine :) I guess it’s just kind of hard to stay with that feeling. I will give every effort to live with more love and make decisions from my heart. It’s funny because I had this same exact thought process just last week. I had decided to live more authentically, so this challenge comes at an appropriate time.

I work in the IT department of a manufacturing company, mainly help desk and network support. We manufacture headwear, t-shirts, gloves, scarves. “Fashion” is actually in my work email address, [redacted URL of her employer, that has the word "fashion" in it] ! :) I have been there 15 years and the last few years I have definitely lost the fire. I know it’s not my path, I’ve really been feeling that lately. I’m just not sure what my path is or how to find the fire. Right now I feel obligated to stay as i’m the sole provider for me and the kids. I DO want to help people, I just have no idea in what capacity that is! :)

I know you probably didn’t want a novel, but I thought a little background would help show how wonderful you are! I really appreciate the reading and the advice. The kids are getting ready to leave with their dad for the weekend and this is when I usually struggle with keeping the light shining. I think I can, I think I can…

Photo Reading: Lauren

This is a photo reading I did with Lauren. The only information I had going into this reading was her name and this photo. Here’s how the reading went!

My Reading

Lauren,

You’re a lovely girl, and very bright.

You’re a little lost right now, which is fine. You’re not sure who you are or what your calling really is, so you’re just doing what you’re “supposed” to do according to your family, and culture. You have some ideas, but you know it’s not quite “right” though. That’s fine, there’s nothing wrong with that, you’ll find your calling, and this is all part of the path as well.

I see conflict in you. When you’re faced with emotional situations, you react in the moment, but in retrospect you don’t always like your reactions. You kind of beat yourself up about it later, like “Why couldn’t I have just been more in control?”

The answer to that question is complicated. You are a very feminine girl, surrounded by a society that misunderstands and often maligns femininity. Being feminine is about expressing and feeling freely, which is the opposite of control. It’s about letting feelings wash over you like the ocean.

The real issue you’re having is related to your finding that path I mentioned before. You haven’t yet build a strong sense of purpose and identity as a woman, so those feelings that wash over you are not coming from a place of feminine power and love. Instead they often come from anger or insecurity. Having those strong emotions is part of your strength and beauty as a feminine woman, so please honor that in yourself. Don’t think that’s wrong, and try to control that like a man would. Instead realize that the issue is really about the authenticity and congruency of those emotions.

When you learn about yourself, and come into your own as a radiant and powerful woman, you will find that the feelings you have will remain intense. But instead of being frustrated by them, you will be empowered by them and learn to honor them.

Part of that learning about yourself means finding partners. I can see you’re mostly heterosexual. When it comes to guys, right now you are most intensely attracted to very masculine, grounded men. That is natural as you are feminine and you don’t have that really strong rooting yet, as I was talking about above. Be careful with these men though: they will tend to shape and dominate your identity. Remember that you are responsible for your own growth, and be sure at all times that are comfortable and happy with the influences your partners put you under.

There will come a time when you no longer need that dominantly masculine man. In fact that type of masculinity is the immature and insecure type that relies on bullheaded dominance and displays of power. You’ll find as you mature into that powerful feminine force I described, you’ll be turned off by the men that used to attract you. Instead you’ll seek out more balanced men: masculine to the core, but in touch with his feminine side, and ready to be true partners with you.

Remember, as you grow, to honor yourself by staying connected to your heart above all else. Ask yourself as you think and feel and decide: am I operating from a place of fear and anger? Or from a place of love?

If you side with love, you’ll grow into a shining example of a woman and magnetize exactly the kind of man you deserve and desire.

Her Response

Pete oh my goodness you read me like a book–what a beautiful reading, soo right on I can’t even say that one part was a little off or didn’t resonate it was like bam bam bam right on the mark haha!!! I can’t believe you read all of that off one photo. You’re soooooo right about me being a bit lost and every guy i have dated in the past few months have been masculine go getters who know themselves very well and I thirst for them because of my own lack of identity. I know that everything you read you provided in the reading however if you had even a tiny instinct or feeling about what i should do or what my calling relates to or even a vague idea/launching point that would be point me in the right direction I would so appreciate it. If you didn’t get anything about that cuz i know that’s probably getting specific, then no worries it was an amazing reading.

My Follow Up

Lauren,

I’m so glad the reading resonated 8)

Your path is going to be tricky for you. A person blazes a path through their life only after they’ve come to know themselves, and then create themselves to be who they choose to be. After that point of self discovery, a path normally rolls out in front of you. It’s a path that you couldn’t have followed before that discovery phase.

So the reason I said it’s fine that you’re not sure about your path yet is that it’s not yet time for you to drive toward your mission, so to speak. Right now it’s time to discover yourself. And you’re going to create opportunities to grow and discover yourself just by living your life, regardless of what you’re doing right now. Take this time to try lots of different things, without strong attachment to any of them.

Just be careful not to wander into a career or relationship that traps you. Be mindful of always moving and growing, and you will create yourself first, then your true path.
