The more psychic readings I give, the more I see how dramatically different we all are, and issues can exist on many, many more levels than I previously thought.
The most common approach these days is to go to childhood issues to deal with a present problem. But I have been discovering that that is true sometimes, but at other times other things are at work.
Difficult situations may be about soul agreements, so one can't just get the heck out of a bad situation thinking to make it easier.
Other issues stem from a time before a person even entered this life and need to dealt with on that level.
With some people, they may have worked out the problem, but the old energy still hangs around as old energy and has to be dissipated through other means than therapy.
Bottom line, if a person is not healing a situation, it's likely that the problem has not been correctly identified.
One of the most valuable things I can do as a psychic reader is actually identify the problem. After that it's easy to refer a person to a psychotherapist or a sound healer or a shaman, etc.
