My First and Last Visit to A Psychic

by Michelle Barr on October 1, 2013

psychicI was just 25 years old the first time I went to see a psychic. A friend of mine told me about her, a woman in Dallas she had recently heard about. Back then, these things were still very hush-hush. You had to know somebody who knew somebody, unless you wanted to take your chances on the side of the road and see the Psychic with the flashing neon sign.

And so I went. My life was a mess. I was a mess. And I wanted to know what she had to tell me.

After making an appointment, I ended up in a townhouse in a lovely suburban neighborhood with a woman named Fan who showed me into her office and asked me to take a seat on the couch. She brought me some water then sat down beside me, reached out and touched my hand and began to talk.

She saw immediately what I was going through with my toxic marriage, and she told me I had been feeling like I should make a move, and that I thought it was an unrealistic idea, I mean, how could I possibly do that, and she said THAT is exactly what you should do. She saw my best friend who was dying and spoke to me about that.  She saw the job I had just come out of, and told me there was a reason for it, and she told me that the other jobs I was trying to get were not going to work out for me right now, because making this move was that answer to what I was asking for, even though I didn’t know it.

The jobs didn’t work out. I did make the move. And it changed my entire life.

I continued to see Fan at least once or twice a year over the next 22 years. When I was close, I saw her in person. When I lived further away, I talked to her by phone. Fan’s guidance was invaluable to me. She saw things I couldn’t see, even though they were going on in my world. She validated for me feelings I was having, things I was feeling called to do, and she helped me see not only how to do them but why they were so important. She saved me many a misstep over the years, and she provided me with peace of mind.

The last time I saw Fan was two years ago.  She was 94 years old. She brought me a glass of water, and we sat down on the couch in her office. I was so excited to tell her how so many things we had talked about had come true.

She had seen me building my own private practice after moving back to Texas. I remember telling her when she first said this, that is what I feel I am to do, but I don’t see how. I don’t have my license in Texas, and it’s going to require a bunch of additional steps to get it. Yet, she assured me, she saw this happening for me. And it did. She had seen me speaking on a stage. And I have. Many times now.

As I described to her the business I was now doing that I love so much, she asked me a question. “I know you’re a Counselor, but that’s not all you are doing for your clients now? What are you really doing?” And something opened inside of me. I was bursting at the seams with it. I told her, “No. I am doing more than that now.” Then she said, “You are like me. You can do what I do. You see that now? You do this for your clients now. And because of that, our time together today is no charge, and you will not pay me again.” And she clapped her hands, her face lighting up with delight.

That day, I received her blessing and such a gift, that all these years I had been going to see her, from the time I was 25 until the time I was 47 years old, I was growing into who I really am and discovering how to do what I am here to do and literally made to do.  With every guided step, with every decision, with every bit of information she offered me, I found my way.

Now, I Coach others who are intuitive; psychics, mediums, healers, those who have gifts to bring to the world and share with others. I Coach them intuitively, energetically, and strategically to discover how to do what they are here to do, what they are made to do, and support and guide them in growing into who they really are.

So, now I ask you:

Who are you?

What are you here to do?

What have you been made to do?

We are just one season away from a new year. As you step across the threshold into the new, what do you really want to be doing?

I urge and encourage you to not waste another moment living any less than a Purpose-full life. Extreme Abundance comes from living your Soul Purpose full out!

My life the day I first showed up at Fan’s townhouse is unrecognizable from the life I now live. I am creating every day a life of Extreme Abundance, living my Soul Purpose full out and not willing to settle for anything less.

I have several ways I can support you in doing the same if you are ready to commit to this journey.

“If your core is weak, nothing else can be strong.”

mountainposeyogaBy working first from the CORE, it will make you stronger mentally and emotionally and help you build a rock-solid foundation from which you can create everything else!

As the whole of you works together and is completely interrelated – body, mind and spirit – everything else relies on your core. It’s your base, and your center of attraction.

Here’s how to start strong and create what you desire.

C. Clarity

Confusion is one of the things I most often see keeping people stuck. Whenever you get stuck in Confusion, the first thing you want to do is create clarity. It can feel overwhelming, and you may feel like you’re not ready or prepared to get clear. But that’s because you are seeing and feeling your big picture, your big Vision. You only need to create clarity around this moment and your next step. When faced with Confusion, there is always something you can do to move out of Confusion.

Just start with, “What is one thing I need to know?” and when you are able to connect with that information, you can then take an action in that direction.

“I’m confused. I’m stuck.” is an excuse. Confusion is a defense mechanism. It does not serve you. It creates a story, and allows you to live in that story, if you choose. It is a distraction, and it is ultimately avoidance.

Recognize it. Own it. Push through Resistance into Receptivity. Get started right now.

gifttoyouHere is my gift to you, a tool from my coaching toolbox that I use with my clients, and it’s yours. Now, here’s the thing. I want you to use it. Use it once, right now or very soon, then hold onto it, add it to your toolbox, and use it often. This is just one of the powerfully practical and spiritually rich tools I use in my coaching program., and it works equally well for both your business and your life.

“There is always a way forward from wherever you now stand.”

O. Ownership

Getting clarity about the next thing you need to know leads way to an inspired action it is clear you must take next. Now, it’s time to make a decision, and then take ownership of that decision. This is so important, because here’s where a lot of people start to fall apart. The minute they get clarity and make the decision to take that next step, there is often a moment of euphoria followed by the ego fighting for its life. So, then you start second-guessing yourself, doubting yourself, playing back all the programs full of limited beliefs and toxic patterns, until there you are, spinning again.

It’s take a tremendous amount of creative energy to get yourself from here to where you want to be, especially those first few steps. So, you don’t need anything draining your energy, and that’s what those kinds of behaviors do.

As soon as you catch the clarity and make a decision, support yourself in that decision 100%. Sometimes, this takes practice, and, at first, you may only be able to support yourself 100% for a few minutes, a few hours, a day. Notice your own self-talk, and notice the stories you are telling others. It all counts. It all matters.

R. Receptivity

From this new energetic stance, you can begin to receive what you are asking for. Things will begin to show up for you in the physical when you start taking physical action.

Here is another sticking point for many people. You want to recognize that there is a Law of Giving and Receiving. Picture it like the infinity symbol. Some people have their giving blocked, and then there are those of you who are more likely to be reading this that have your receiving blocked.

You want to make sure you are open and allowing the good you are asking for. This is a big part of where doing the energetic work first brings you the best results.

E. Embodiment

Do you see what we are creating here? We get clear on what energetic stance to take and what next step we are going to commit to. Without that, none of the rest of this will bring you what you desire.

Once you are clear, you take ownership. You support yourself 100%. You hold onto your Vision and revisit it every day. It’s your touchstone. All your energy is now being focused to support what you are wanting to create. Picture this as a hose with a strong concentrated spray rather than lots of trickles going off in all directions. Then you open to receive what you are asking for.

It is written in every sacred text, “Ask and it is given.” And, it’s true. You are always given the opportunity to create what you are asking for. It doesn’t always show up in the way you expect it to. It’s not always logical. And it’s often not comfortable. Nevertheless, don’t miss it when it shows up. The clearer you are, the more centered, grounded and focused you are, the quicker and easier it will all come together for you. Just like anything else, you want to execute it from a strong core.

The next step is to pull that focused energy right into you. Imagine it. Own it. Focus on it. Receive it. And embody it. Become one with it. Become the person  who is being what you need to be and doing what you need to do to have what you desire. Call it in.

At this point, it’s important to notice where old habits try to overtake you, fears, doubts, worries, anything that tries to pull you off center. And deal with it immediately. Keep coming back to this new energetic stance you have created for yourself.

If you do this, what you desire will already be a part of your energy fields. It will already exist around you. It’s Universal Law that if you desire something, it does exist for you. Now you’re ready to move into action.

And, guess what? It triggered some people. A lot. I know by now that I’m a catalyst, but it still gets really uncomfortable when what I put out there starts flying back at me. You know, I already got unfriended last week after a very heated debate by a Facebook friend who had been connected […]

Default Living a.k.a. How the Hell Did I Get Here?

July 17, 2013

“Default living comes as a result of operating from a reactive place and making decisions from an unbalanced ‘fight or flight’ state of emergency and stress all the time. We are allowing programmed thoughts, beliefs and scripts to navigate and guide our actions. We are letting the unconscious drive our bus. (This is a big […]

What Happens When You Resist Commitment?

July 9, 2013

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” — Art Turock I still remember the day, sitting in San Diego in a conference aimed at getting me in touch with and connected […]
