Confessions of a psychic coach

It is not about my powers and gifts, but about you and

by Scott Grace — 

Gangway, folks! I am coming out of the closet as a psychic coach. I am tired of toe tapping and treading lightly by calling myself “extremely intuitive.” The fact is, I see auras, read chakras, hear and talk to guides — the whole nine yards. I deliver out-of-this-world messages in a down-to-earth way. But, oh, how I have shied away from owning up to being psychic.

I have adopted a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about my gifts. Even after graduating from years of study at a psychic training institute, I have stayed away from the “p” word. Probably because I have my own judgments about airy-fairy, New-Agey psychics who clutch crystals and promote ideas such as past lives are important, or that when Mercury is in retrograde you should hide under your covers until it passes.

By the way, I do believe that past-life memories can come in handy if you are an atheist locked into 3D and could use a hello from your friendly neighborhood Eternal Life, or if you are invited to a “come as you were party” and have not a thing to wear. And caring about Mercury being in retrograde can be useful for anyone who has plumb forgotten that they themselves are a heavenly body and more powerful as a creative force than all the stars in the cosmos.

Coming out has its downside. When people hear that I am psychic, clairvoyant and intuitive, they occasionally ask me to predict their future. I make it clear that I do not do predictions, as I prefer not serving my clients spiritual junk food. I do see, read and articulate the soul lessons and big-picture blessings behind and within each challenge that a person is facing, and point out the ways in which Divine Love is attempting to help each person grow out of their stuck places and into their authentic power and true selves.

I delight in helping people do the real work, which as I see it is to uncover and transform the subconscious beliefs that are holding them back, then give them practical tools and the next steps to release them. Then I hold up a soul mirror and reflect their magnificence right back “atcha” in the form of a channeled song that can be played every day on the way toward living their dreams.

That is what I do with my psychic powers. The tools and homework assignments I give put the power in the individual’s hands — nothing airy-fairy about it. If you want predictions, stay away. I have balls, but they are not crystal. The only thing I predict is that once you stop holding hands with your fears, your life will move forward in wondrous ways and openings will happen that are deliciously unpredictable. Who needs predictions when you have personal power and a magical universe to play and prosper in?

If my ability to tune in to psychic gifts does not lead to your grounded progress and practical next steps, then, as they say from my home town of Brooklyn, “Fuggetabouttit” (translation: forget about it). It is not about my powers and gifts, but about you and yours.

Sometimes people come tight-lipped for a session in order to test me. They want me to tune into them and tell them what I see and sense without volunteering anything about themselves, their desires or their challenges. It is fun for me. A little scary sometimes when performance anxiety passes through my nervous system, but I do enjoy being out on my edge.

One time at a psychic fair, a young man not even 20 years old plopped down on the chair next to me and asked me to “read him blind.” He had a smug attitude. Out of the corner of my eye I saw his friends waiting outside the door. I imagined they dared him to get a reading, or they drew straws and he got the short one.

I closed my eyes, tuned in, said hello to his soul and said something like: “You are on a quest to find out all you can about how dark darkness can be. It is like you are at Hogwarts taking a crash course in the dark arts. Sometimes you forget that the darkness you are dabbling in is not permanent and does not define you, that it is just a place you are visiting to gather some experience.

“You will, when you are good and ready, come to the other side of this exploration, and move on to more fulfilling adventures and easier classrooms. Ask yourself what you want to invent and create in all the madness you see around you, rather than just cursing at it, and you will be well on your way.”

When I stopped talking, I opened my eyes and saw him crying. He mumbled a few words about how he never felt seen before until this moment, thanked me profusely and then slipped away. I was deeply touched, believing that our short time together made a significant difference in his life.

Most of the time, it helps for people to forego the generic and ask a more specific question about a heart’s desire or a challenge. It is like going to get a massage. You get a better massage if you tell the therapist that your lower back could use some attention, that you do not like having your feet rubbed and that your shoulders need a soft approach.

So much healing happens in a relationship. The more you relate and reveal, the more you receive. The more a person is honest, vulnerable and open with me in session, the more they come away transformed. If you do not let me in, I have no business getting in your business. I have not been invited.

It is true that you cannot be healed or supported unless you ask for help. Asking for help from God, guides, angels, human friends and, yes, psychic coaches, is a prerequisite for receiving it.

Have you asked for help today?
