Double Vision: Why are Psychics More Accurate about Current Details than the Future?

Kajama Psychics

I would like to know if there is a common thread among psychics in terms of how they experience or "know" things. For example, on Psychic Chat - which is electronic and somewhat impersonal or indirect - the psychics have been incredibly "right on" about certain people, events, etc. How do they "know?" How does the information come to them, and is it the same from psychic to psychic? Also, it's been my experience that psychics are much more accurate about what is true NOW than in the future. The things I can confirm about the reality of my life and the people in it are right on the money! However, when it comes to the future, things are fuzzier or more hit and miss, and there appears to be less accuracy. Why does it seem more challenging for a psychic to be as accurate about future events as they are with current circumstances?

I'm really glad you asked these questions, for I've wanted a chance to speak on these very subjects.

No two psychics (or any other term for someone who is blessed with the "gift of sight") see/know/feel things in the same way. In my case, I know things because they come to me in the form of my own thoughts. I just think it and "know" it as fact.

For example, when you look at the color red, you just know that the color is red. It comes in thought form to you that it is red and you know it to be a fact. My "gift" comes in much the same way. I just know what is true.

My birth mother, on the other hand, smells things. She will smell someone and know from their smell what they are about. I can't understand her way, and she can't understand my way, but we both come to same bottom line using our own methods. If you ask the psychic you are working with, they will gladly explain how they receive psychic impressions, even if it makes no "logical" sense.

As far as the "indirect" nature of Psychic Chat, you have to remember that energy travels. We do not need to be physically close to someone to FEEL them and LOVE them. When a child goes away to college, they can still feel the love of their family from far away.

In the same vein, I do not need to be close to someone physically to read them. I can sense and feel their energy from wherever they are. I read the energy, not the person. I think the internet has really opened up the world to knowing that energy does travel. So many fall in love or form friendships with people they have never even met via the internet. That proves to SO many people that energy transcends physical space and time.

As far as reading the future, so many people fail to realize that free will plays a HUGE part in determining what will happen. For example, I could tell you that you are going to get a great new job in two weeks time, but if you do not go on any interviews, will you still get that job?

I am usually asked this question when it comes to love. How many people have you dated that changed their mind, got scared, or for some reason just ran away? How many times have you changed your mind and walked away from someone else? Usually fear is the cause behind someone changing their mind and backing away from a love relationship. Fear is never easy to see clearly because its roots are so complicated, and each person's reactions to it are so unique.

No one - not even God - can predict free will. If you change your mind after the time of the reading, it will change the outcome foreseen. So please remember that free will directly influences the future.

I wish you great readings.



Terri, the only common thread I've ever found among all psychics is that we all want you to be happy and fulfilled. Because we all receive information DIFFERENTLY, I can't make generalizations about anyone but me. My formula for getting answers is to have someone ask me a specific question about something that is happening in their lives. First I'll have a FEELING, then I'll use astrology and tarot to explore what will most likely happen.

To me, Psychic Chat is a very direct, personal experience. I'm typing, you're typing - we both have our hands on the keys. You're at home (or work - shame on you!) so you're in your own environment, and I'm in my office, where I'm comfortable and happy. We're CONNECTED in a way that for me is much better than sitting in a room with someone who is nervous to be there.

I usually see what's going on before I even touch my cards or look up a chart. Most of the time, I'm accurate. I predict outcomes with as much certainty as I can, but here is where that pesky free will comes in! Even if two people have wonderful potential for happiness in love, for example, that doesn't mean they're going to choose to make the most of it.

It's also so frustrating when someone comes back and quotes me as saying things I never said. Here's a biggie: "YOU said I should CALL him!" Most psychics I know don't do "should." We're not your parents! Maybe I said it would be okay to try calling him. When we go out on a limb or experiment with various situations to see what happens, things happen that NO psychic could predict. Sometimes people hear what they want to hear, and no matter what anyone else says, they're going to do what they want to do and blame us for any disasters that ensue.

I can't tell you why the psychics you're chatting with know more about the PRESENT than the FUTURE, because I am the world's worst at reading the present. I can see things MUCH better when they're about two to four weeks away. Because the present is changing moment by moment with the free will of all involved, I prefer to look for long-term outcomes.

The person who says, "Will he call me today?" is getting my best GUESS at that time. The person who says, "Has he read my email?" isn't going to get much from me, because MY ability doesn't work that way. What I do is much more important than determining whether someone has read an email or is going to pick up the phone. I want to see you HAPPY, and one email or phone call doesn't make up the beautiful tapestry of your life.

You control your own life and your own destiny. All any psychic can do is give you what CAN be, which is not necessarily what WILL be.


Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.

Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!

I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.

You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
