Get beaten up way too much. How do I know this? Because I am one of those thinkers.
I’m always thinking about something, more than likely at least six or seven things at one time. Can you imagine? Well, they actually line up in a row, waiting their turn as patiently as can be to be thought of or expressed.
When I say critical thinker, I’m talking about the fact that when people say what their ideas are or thoughts are, I am shown, told or just know, situations that may arise during their processes. I think I’m being helpful.
I have been told in the past that I’m being negative, which is completely absurd. I would never rain on anyone’s parade or their dreams of what they want to do. I just point out what comes to me. Take it or leave it. It’s up to you.
I’ve been told recently by a wise woman that maybe some people just aren’t ready to hear what I have to say. Maybe they aren’t. Hopefully, they will think about it later, though. Maybe, it’s that spark they needed to move forward.
That same wise woman just told me that my thoughts may seem argumentative. Trust me, I’m not arguing. It’s a lower-level vibration. Although. . .
Backstory: My mom once told me (from 5 years old to my early teens, actually) that I would be a great attorney. Smile
I will admit that perhaps others could view it as argumentative, but if you truly know me, I’m not trying to argue. I’m trying to point out situations that can be changed to assist the future.
Funny, I stepped outside momentarily while writing this blog and saw a woman standing near my front porch. I asked if she was my reading and then she said, ‘I feel there’s this huge black cloud over the world.’ I asked, ‘Why not think of it as a black cloud of protection? It doesn’t have to be negative, does it?’ The energy was spectacular during that moment. I felt we both walked away with a profound new way of understanding.
Change is inevitable! Embrace it! (read that again and again)
There must be more out there like me. I’m a psychic medium, a real one. I know things and I see things. I am passionate about what I know and what I see. I also hear and feel.
Don’t beat me up for who I am. I do my best to not beat you up and others for who you are, they are. To progress, change is needed. Most people know it. Wake up and do it.
That same wise woman who shared her thoughts opened my eyes to this: ‘Treat people like they are your grandson.’
Wow, that’s huge. I understand now that not everyone is where I am, and that’s okay. I forget sometimes. I am a teacher and have loads of compassion for my students and for humanity.
I just got reminded that my energy may be just too large for some. Be mindful! Be mindful of your energy.
A chance meeting with that wise woman just became larger than me. Hope you have that moment, too.
I AM a positive thinker – always have been!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
P.S. One definition of critical thinker: ‘the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment.’ How is that a less than good thing?
