It’s so easy to get sucked into the world of fortune telling and predictions. Horoscopes adorn the pages of magazines and newspapers, and they are all over the Internet asking you to subscribe. But what is a horoscope? Can it really predict your future. I guess not, since the same thing is not going to happen to millions of people, so if it says that you are going to meet your prince charming in your lunch hour, how many gullible people will believe such hype and then phone the stupid horoscope hotline to gain more information. It’s all about money. Believe me, I used to be a sucker for this content. I would order numerology and astrology reports to gain more information. Sure, they were on target with my sensitive nature, but the whole point of life is to get to know yourself with or without inside knowledge. Horoscopes and other future predictions may seem helpful at the time, but they can take a person off course. In reality, they omit the gratitude of who you already are at this very moment.
It wasn’t just horoscopes I dabbled with. Tarot, runes, pendulums, magic spells, crystals, dowsing rod, and even palm readings were always my daily focus. I had to find out what would happen in my future. I became obsessed. It brought me nothing but misery, and what a waste of hard-earned money too. All the time I was out to gain knowledge about my future, I realised it was ruining my relationship with my family.
And breaking away from this need to know my future has been easier than I first thought. I don’t need a crystal to give me insider knowledge and powers. I believe it’s all bullshit. There is energy I feel around my head that I can’t push away, and I still feel an energy in my spine. If this is Kundalini, I don’t want it anymore. I have dabbled with the wrong type of energy. It is sad that it has taken me about fifteen years to realise my mistake. I am happy as I am. I am grateful for my family and partner. I have everything I need. God has blessed me.
Trying to gain insider knowledge is greedy, it is disrespectful toward the gifts that are around us every day. Thankfully, I have a curious mind that is always searching for the truth. I am pretty content with my beliefs at the moment. I am no born-again Christian, as I believe there is no need for any religion, but the simple words spoken by Christ are powerful and not enough of us are willing to look at our carnal nature and say “Hey God I’m broken, and I need YOUR help. Instead, New Age Religion provides a release to say “I don’t need God for salvation cos I can do it myself.”
