A story from across the Atlantic has really set tongues wagging in the psychic community, starting conversations about just how far people should go in allowing psychics to influence their lives. While most of us would agree that the influence of a psychic is a generally positive thing within many strands of life, this lady from England really took things to another level entirely…
The Psychic Addiction Starts…
According to the Daily Mirror, Lisa Birt, a 35 year old woman from Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset in the UK, started to see a psychic a number of years ago – something that cost her around $45 a session, a sum that was more than manageable to her. But then things got out of control, and she ended up spending around $4,500 in total on psychics and tarot readers. What’s more, she was letting them dictate every aspect of her life, from relationships through to job decisions.
Some of the many things that Lisa did on what she saw as advice from her psychic included:
- Moving to Spain
- Signing up to dating websites in a search for love
- Quitting her job
Of course, the psychic had never actually told Lisa to do these things though – the problem was that Lisa interpreted everything mentioned by the psychic too literally, acting impulsively to make huge changes without looking further into the psychic’s statements.
Lisa believed in every word her psychic said, never questioning whether her interpretation of the advice was the correct course of action: if the psychic saw travel in her future, she’d immediately head abroad; if there was love on the horizon, she took it as a cue to sign up to multiple dating websites. These actions cost even more money – money that hasn’t been included in the figure of $4,500.
As with most things though, it was love that finally persuaded Lisa that she had a psychic addiction problem. When she met the love of her life, she was petrified that the psychic would hint at her leaving him. This worried her too much, as she couldn’t bear to be without her now husband. So she gave up on psychics entirely, and now hasn’t had a reading for a year. Lisa sums the situation up perfectly when she says: “I still believe in their power, but I believe in my relationship more.”
What This Story Teaches Us
Perhaps it is prudent to think about the whole situation though, and what it really means. The real lesson to learn from Lisa’s story is this: psychics can be a powerful force, creating great opportunities for those who see them (after all, Lisa met her husband after advice from a psychic). But as with everything that’s good, too much can be a bad thing.
Lisa got so caught up in the world of psychics that she forgot what it was really about – getting some assistance with life, not having life taken over by them. The next time you visit a psychic, or call one of the many reputable psychics found online, make sure you listen to everything they have to say and by all means act on it. Just don’t do what Lisa did and take drastic steps without first thinking about whether they are the correct steps to take…
