Free Will is a Gift
I often get calls from people who seem to overlook the fact that they have free will and control over their situations. They ask me, “What will I decide to do about ___________?”
I can tell them what will happen if they go with plan A and how it will be different if they go with plan B. I can look into the hearts of people and help form a plan that will bring about a desired outcome. Or, I can look into the mind of a loved one and give warnings about what should not be done. I can even tell a person what s/he is most likely to decide if s/he sticks to their current course, so that they can change course if they don’t like what is coming. This means that a caller can change his or her mind and therefore change the course of their lives and the lives of others. Free will is a gift from God.
Your free will determines your actions. Your actions create results. Nothing has to stay the way it is. Change your mind and you change your world.
In my tradition, we tell a story about free will:
The Great Spirit gathered the animals around Him and said, “I have a secret that I want to hide from the humans until they are truly ready to know it. The secret is that each human creates his or her own reality. Each person has the power to change their own life.”
The robin came and said, “I will fly the secret to the Moon. They won’t find it there.”
The Great Spirit said, “No, the humans will eventually go to the Moon and they will find it there.”
The turtle came and said, “Give me the secret and I will hide it by burying it at the bottom of the ocean.”
The Great Spirit said, “Humans will someday go to the bottom of the ocean and they will find it there.”
The fox came and said, “I can take the secret into my den and hide it in the earth.”
The Great Spirit said, “Humans will dig into the earth and scar the land and find it there.”
Then the mole came forward. The mole was blind and saw with its heart, not its eyes. The mole said, “You should put the secret where the humans are least likely to look. You should put it inside of them.”
The Great Spirit agreed, and it was done.
This story highlights personal power, free will, and our God-given ability to exercise them. If you’ve read the Bible, you have surely noticed that God gave people a chance to choose. He did not create people who automatically worshiped Him or automatically made the righteous decisions. He gave the people laws and the opportunity to decide whether or not to follow them.
There are some religions that believe that everything is predestined and there is no free will. If you believe that way, then stop reading, stop worrying, stop doubting, and stop fearing, for in your belief everything is exactly as God wants it to be—including your current challenges.
For the rest of us, a psychic reading can help us to alter our course and make different decisions. I can’t tell you exactly what you will decide—that would mean taking away a gift that God gave you. What I can do is to help you decide on a plan that will get the outcome you deserve.
