Greetings internet, welcome to DAY 2 of the #MarchWritingChallenge! Today’s prompt is:
What HAS someone said to you that yoU’ll never forget?
Years ago, after a beautiful brunch filled with pastries and almond milk lattes, my friend and I were walking around our familiar neighborhood. For as long as I can remember, there’s been a Psychic shop near where we were. Neither of us had gone to a psychic before (or knew anyone that had). But, it was so beautifully decorated, looked so inviting, we just had to go in (you understand).
The psychic was a middle-aged lady with brown hair and wisdom marks near her eyes. She had her son with her in the store, calmly watching cartoons on a tablet. The woman warmly greeted us inside to a bright pink lounge area and applied an oxygen mask over her face as she sat down on the couch. (This was pre-COVID, of course.) She and her store were charming.
My friend and I got tarot cards and our palms read to us. In all, my reading probably lasted about 30-40 minutes. As she focused on laying the cards out one by one, she spoke about my future career, relationships, family life, etc. Whether or not it’s true, hearing it was mind-blowing.
In the end, I had the opportunity to ask her any question I wanted. I didn’t know about this part. Quickly, I asked, “is there anything else you would like me to know?” (facepalm, I know)
The woman blinked slowly and smiled. She said, “your aura, at its core, is a lovely aqua blue. There are things or people in your life that are clouding it. Make sure to wash that away.” Then she gave me a small, shiny crystal to keep in the shower and hold when I lather.
Fist-pumping her son on the way out, I never did stop thinking about that reading.
Now, in no way am I saying that psychics are real. Still, what she said has never left my memory. At the time, I was facing challenges of my own and often didn’t feel like myself. Of course, with time comes the best healing, and I hope I’ve done an excellent sweep in ridding any lingering clouds in the sky that is my aura (LOL, sorry, I had to).
Until next time,
