Wisdom of Solomon 8:8

(speaking of Wisdom) "And if any one longs for wide experience,
she knows the things of old, and infers the things to come;
she understands turns of speech and the solutions of riddles;
she has foreknowledge of signs and wonders
and of the outcome of seasons and times."

"The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior"

Note: This is on the human level. With God, we can change our future by changing our behavior.

I don't know about you, but there have been so many times in my life that I just wanted to have a fortune teller predict my future, like reading the last paragraphs of a book to make sure things turned out the way I wanted them to.  

 

But that is not the way our life's journey is traveled. You see, there is no shortcut to our desired outcomes. This, of course, is a paradox because the best shortcut is not looking for shortcuts! Spirit is such a jokester!

 

Interestingly enough however, it absolutely IS possible to predict the future. It is not magical however, it's metaphysical and mystical.   

Want to know how to sort it all out and connect with the "Practical Prognosticator Within?" Read on!

I don't think there is any one of us who would not like to know the future. But as we seek answers, we tend to forget that we already have all of the answers we need...within!

 

Not only that, because the Universe is in a constant state of flux, we are individually and collectively "writing" the future with each thought, word and action. Outcomes can be changed through right of consciousness. 

 

Before going further, I want to make myself perfectly clear...I am not discrediting the countless sincere, spiritually gifted psychics who can provide guidance when we "cannot see the forest for the trees." You can easily spot one of these because they will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.  

 

What does a 'real' psychic have that you do not have? One thing is a natural sensitivity to Spiritual energy, and typically years of work developing it, and another is detachment to "your stuff." We tend to be so mentally or emotionally attached to the outcome we want, we are deaf and blind to God's presence and guidance.    

 

What I am trying to address here is running hither and yon looking for our answers "out there" rather than accessing our own wisdom

 

In Jeremiah 31:33 God says, "I will put my law within them, I will write it on their hearts." The "Law" is Principle. We have, as a gift from God, inner "knowing" of right from wrong, truth from falsehood, good from evil. The "heart" represents our combined thinking and feeling faculties. On the spiritual level this would be intuitive and sensing (aka 'psychic') and on the human, carnal plane this would be personal ego thoughts and emotions. 

 

When there is congruency and harmony in the energy of thinking and feeling we are aligned with God/Spirit, and there is discord or discomfort when we are not.

 

A favorite Unity affirmation states: "I am a spiritual being, living in a spiritual universe, governed my spiritual law." This is the "Law" that God put within our hearts. Paradoxically, we are spiritual beings having a human experience, influenced by physical law. When we are operating from alignment with Spirit, we can perceive our future good. When we are operating from our lower, human nature we block our sensitivity to Spiritual energy; "knowing."

 

So, to access the Practical Prognosticator within we must let go of our attachment to the outcomes we think or feel we want, and align our "heart" (intuitive/sensing faculties) with Spirit; Divine Mind, which is Omniscient (all-knowing).

 

Conclusion: You can predict with absolute certainty that if you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting...and lots of it! You don't need a psychic for that one. If you want to change your life, let go of your attachment to personal wants and spend time regularly in prayer and meditation, do what you know to be right and true, and trust God for the outcome.  

 

May your day be blessed and beautiful, RevAli
