The word Precognition comes from the Latin prae- meaning before, and cognitio, meaning acquiring knowledge. Also known as prescience, future vision, or future sight, it is when a person claims to have the ability to see into the future. According to Psychology Today, it is believed that one-third of the American population has experienced Precognition.
The paradox of psychic prediction speaks to the ‘chicken or egg’ scenario asking if the information was not relayed would the outcome be the same? Predictive reading raises questions about whether our lives are fated or subject to our will to choose, and therefore creating our destiny. Regardless of whether it is fixed or fluid, clearing out our pictures and beliefs, whether conscious or unconscious creates a more accurate reading. Understanding how these energies interact in a readees space, without seeking to interpret for another, also helps us to give a context to a psychic reading.
Signs and Symbols have been a means to humans throughout time. In a psychic reading, they may be used to access information in a quick and practical manner in order to convey information to the readee with ease. As with any sign or symbol, it only has the meaning that an individual or group assigns to it, which varies. The gift you can give as a reader is to give information that validates the readee, and makes them feel seen. This may inspire them to find their own answers and take empowered action in their lives.
Precognition is the ability to predict future events before they happen. For millennia, cultures and civilizations have relied on oracles, fortune tellers, soothsayers, seers, prophets and psychics to predict future events so that they may prevent and avert catastrophe. With a viral pandemic spreading across the world creating sudden, dramatic and unprecedented changes to daily life, many are looking for signs and predictions to find meaning and understand why and how it may have come into reality. Rather than exploring predictions as proof of current world events, perhaps it is more helpful to explore the underlying needs to feel safe, secure, protected, seen, and validated. During times that are chaotic and destabilizing, working on maintaining a balanced perspective through spiritual or psychic development and practices, meditation, movement, creativity, and healing and nurturing loving connections with others may offer greater support and grounding.
