Can the words of a Psychic influence your thoughts? Your Choices? Your Destiny?

Nikki, an inspirited Aussie girl thought she had her life planned. GET A CAREER, FIND A MAN, START A FAMILY. Life seemed simple, until... accompanying her friend to a psychic changed her life forever. The psychic describes her soul mate. Mr Hollywood, a man with crystal green eyes.

Flash forward 17 years, Nikki's career as a Hollywood Entertainment Lawyer is taking off, and the Green Eyed man is standing in front of her. The words of the psychic are imprinted on her mind... "Remember he's nice to look at, nice to see, but if you chase him, he will flee..." So if she cannot chase him, and she cannot tell him what she knows. Will she ignore the warnings to get what she wants?

With her best friend, Siobhan, who is effectively her audacious and sassier alter ego, they navigate their way through the supposedly predestined life!

Nikki can try, but she Can’t Fight Fate.

THE PSYCHIC LURE


You've just met—the fireworks are exploding, sparks are flying and the butterflies are looping in your stomach. The man of your dreams! He's sweet, caring, everything you could ever want. He's perfect, except... he's blonde, the psychic said brunette, or his eyes are brown and the psychic said green and he's short, the psychic said tall, so the romance is over before it begins. That man could have been your soul mate, but the psychic told you differently! Your brain has hit shuffle on the back catalogue; a random song from the 70's has popped into your mind, 'bye bye baby bye bye.' Time to keep searching for Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome.

When should you trust your gut instinct instead of listening to a spiel the so-called psychic has told you and, more than likely, 20 women before you? 




CAN THE WORDS OF A PSYCHIC INFLUENCE YOUR THOUGHTS?
YOUR CHOICES? YOUR DESTINY?




Psychics make big dollars; it's a lucrative industry. Is it entirely possible that a psychic has special powers and can actually see the future? This opens a can of worms for the sceptics among us, of which I am not one. I believe there are good and bad psychics, just like mechanics, hairdressers or tradespeople. There are ones that actually can do what they say and others that will just rob you blind.


One such example is convicted felon 'Psychic' Rose Marks, who was imprisoned for defrauding more than $17.8 million from clients of her family's fortune-telling business. She recently lost an appeal of her criminal convictions, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the felony convictions and ruling the restitution she was ordered to pay was appropriate. The appeals court also ruled the 10-year prison term was reasonable. Looks like she will need a new crystal ball. Where does that leave her clients? Have they been living lies? Travelling down the wrong path has lead to a lot of destruction. But if her predictions were true, why couldn't she see that coming for her clients?





WHAT IS THE LURE OF A PHYSIC?


Everyone has a burning question they desperately need to know the answer to, and doesn't it make the decision easier to rely on someone else's guidance? What if someone could just shake a magic eight ball and presto! Or is visiting a psychic giving away your power of choice? Are you no longer deciding your own destiny by following their predictions? In effect, you are allowing someone else to control your fate and manipulate your destiny. How would you ever know if what the psychic is saying is effectively a better path, an easier road?


But on the other hand, what if their words were true and they could see the future? Ditching the short blonde guy could save you years of heartache and avoid a messy divorce. 



This is exactly the conundrum the lead character faces in my new fiction novel, Can't Fight Fate. The psychic told her the man of her dreams; her soul mate, will have green eyes. And really, nobody knows this feeling better than me, because at the age of 21, I was her. The psychic reading in the book is that actual reading.  


Over the years, I have visited a lot amazingly talented psychics and mediums, in addition to being on the receiving end of the manipulation by what I like to refer to as 'psychic vampires.' There's a whole chapter in the book dedicated to them. Don't get psychics and mediums mixed up either; these are completely different abilities, although mediums sometimes have psychic abilities, usually revealed under the guise of a dead relative or friend. Like I have said earlier, I am a believer, seeking the services of many different psychics in the past. Most have told me of possibilities to change my life for the better. After readings by several big name psychics, many of their predictions have been undeniably true. However, I would definitely be wary of any psychic that is asking you to hand over large sums of money.


With psychic readings, where do you draw the imaginary line in the sand? Do you pass up what could be the love of your life for what you have been told could happen? Only the person with that choice at hand would know.
