Usually this is the case when the person is making a big change. At that time, there are only potentials and possibilities. The person, through their own effort and awareness eventually makes decisions about her next steps.
It's a process of becoming. As they become a new person, they will make new decisions. It's the new person that's making the new decisions.
Free will is involved. The personalities tastes, interests, likes and dislikes are involved in what will happen in the future.
As a psychic reader--in this transitional phase of their life--I can point out where they've been, their potential, what might be in the way. Most importantly, I sketch out their current stance, thinking process, emotional approach and what needs to change for them to open up new potentials.
So, at this stage of growth, there are no concrete answers, only possibilities. However, if a person knows this is happening, they can fully utilize the opportunity and create something magnificent for themselves, instead of hurrying up and grasping to what's easiest and closest as a way to alleviate the discomfort of the unknown.
All spiritual warriors need to know how to maneuver the territory of the unknown; it's the best way to create optimal life conditions.
