The Stranger, The Book, The Future


I'm always caught somewhere in between everything happens for a reason and you create your own destiny

I met a lady who was a psychic the other day. I called her a fortune teller when I mentioned the encounter to my family, but I'm actually not really sure what she is. A nice, intuitive lady who offered Scott and I to join her and her husband at dinner when we couldn't find a table.

She spoke of places I had never been like the French countryside and Missouri. She talked of her father and how he died, and her mother and how she taught her about astrology. I felt like I could see her mother through her eyes. I felt affected by that imaginary glance, even though her mother wasn't a character in my story. 

After her father died, she was never a child again. She said when she turned 12 she actually turned 21. A psychic told her so, but she knew it was true because she hung around 30 year olds all summer.  

She knew a lot about me. That I was an observer. Quiet, but listening. That I was stubborn. That high school was challenging for me. 

She said I would write a book someday, but she couldn't tell me when. She wrote my name down. I knew I would't forget her either. 

What I always feel God is telling me is: "You have the ability to do great things. Make sure that you do them." 

It means a lot of things. Some things I don't even know about yet. But I know I'm going to write that book someday. I work towards it every day, even if it isn't noticeable. I'm just not sure when either.

Have you ever been to a psychic?

  1. This sounds like a really wonderful experience. One of those moments that stops you in your tracks. I had a similar experience a few years ago. We went to a cabin with a few friends one weekend and met the caretaker who stayed up late talking about all his past experiences and what he thought about the purpose of life, etc. I had been trying for a long time to verbalize what I had floating around in my head, but while talking to him I was finally able to put it all together and share my inner thoughts about life and what happens when we die. It was a truly spiritual moment for me, and I felt like everything made sense. Even though my thoughts have become clouded again, I still think back to that night and how life changing it was. I know you're going to write a book, too:)

    1. It sounds like one of those experiences that always stays with you. It's weird and kinda crazy when you can connect t with strangers so quickly. I like that though. I'm kind of shy, so it doesn't happen to me very often. I want it to happen more.

  2. I've been once at the urging of my mom and it was pretty cool. She was able to tell me things about myself that no one knew. I'm with you on how much fate plays into our lives. Over the past two years I've learned to trust my intuition more and it has already made me happier and more fulfilled. I believe we're all here to learn lessons and I believe one of mine is/was to learn to trust my voice again.

    1. That's not an easy thing to do. I want to get better at that too.

  3. I'm always torn when it comes to psychics. I know they exist, and I know many people swear that they know more than the average person. There are so many things in this life we can't comprehend, and maybe that gift really exists.
    What I truly believe in is that we can create our own destiny. The hard part is figuring out what we want in life; once that's settled, we can make it happen. Isn't it so empowering?
    You will write your book. You will.
    Because you want to, and you are a hard-working person, and dreams do come true.

    I'm so glad you made this connection, I hope it will help you along on your journey.

    1. Thank you Miriam! I've never been to a psychic because I'm pretty sure someone told me they were a waste of money. So I just out it out of my head. Being intuitive, though, that's something I'd like to be.

  5. Hi Devon, I love stopping by your blog. I was at a buffet in France once during a conference and indulging in the free champagne. The lady server suddenly started speaking to me (in French) and said she had a message for me. She told me she was psychic. It was an odd encounter, completely unexpected, and her message was very simple, and confusing because it was so simple! That said, I did go to a psychic once, before meeting that lady, but intentionally forgot everything she told me because I had this terrible feeling of knowing too much, and the realisation that I didn't want to know!!! The only thing I remember is she told me I'd been a lady explorer who visited Tibet and played a flute..

  6. Did you do that? Visit Tibet and play the flute? Interesting about the feeling of knowing too much. I bet I wouldn't like that either.

  7. Wow! Sometimes I wonder if there is really something to psychics, fortune tellers or even just an energy and collective consciousness that we can't explain. Maybe there's a scientific explanation but we just haven't discovered it yet. That probably sounds crazy! But anyway - I believe that she is right that you will write a book some day :) I have never been to a psychic but have considered it. There is a huge part of me that wishes for someone to just hand me a roadmap with all the destinations highlighted. Go here, then there, then there. It would be so much easier if everything was pre-determined and I knew what to do. But that's probably not really how it works!

  8. Not sure how I missed this post Devon. I love meeting interesting and different people like that. They somehow increase my energy levels and inspiration and determination. I can always sense that you are working on your writing, that you're observing and reflecting and always being open to experiences. This will all help you towards your dream. I'd like to write too. I understand a lot of what you say, and I feel a connection to you in this place. I'm glad you met this stranger and that you found such positivity in your meeting with her.

    1. I feel the same way about the energy and inspiration when I meet people like this. I wanted to start writing right when I got home. I could totally see you writing a book someday. I love reading your writing CJ.
