Psychic predictions are greatly influenced by our free will. Today, we’re going to talk about some interesting stuff like destiny, why some predictions come true (and others don’t), and why you don’t need to worry about missing a meeting with your soul mate!
What is Free Will?
Many people think that the future can be predicted with pinpoint precision. The truth is, it can’t. The main reason for this is: We have free will.
Free will is the birthright of every human being on this planet and is defined by dictionary.com as:
“The doctrine that the conduct of human beings expresses personal choice and is not simply determined by physical or divine forces.”
Simply put: We have choices and all aspects of our lives are not predetermined. The decisions that we make can affect the outcome of any given situation.
This means that our actions can alter psychic predictions (i.e. change the outcome of what was predicted in a reading).
We are all here to have human experiences and evolve our souls.
If we didn’t have free will, we’d all be walking around like puppets on a string with every moment of our lives mapped out for us.
Not only would that be SUPER boring, it would also hamper our ability to experience all the awesomeness that life has to offer!
Though this popular quote has nothing to do with psychic ability, it sums up this post nicely:
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
But What About Destiny?
Most people believe in fate.
Many people also believe that we – with the help of our spirit guides – predetermine some aspects of our lives and certain experiences we want to have prior to our incarnation for the reasons of soul growth and karma.
(Not everything is predetermined, but some of the “biggies” – like who we will marry – seem to be).
For example, did you know that we aren’t born to random people? It’s true. We stay within the same soul group for many, many lifetimes and select our parents in each lifetime!
In fact, our parents agree to be our parents, too! It’s a soul contract that’s all worked out prior to our incarnation. So, next time your kids complain, tell them, “Well, you picked me!” :)
How Free Will and Psychic Predictions Affect Our Relationships
Here’s a fun fact: Even when psychic predictions tell you specifics (like how many children you’ll have), free will can determine how and when these predestined events show up in your life.
For example, it’s probably not predetermined that you’re going to meet your soul mate at 3pm on April 15 while waiting in line at the mall. That’s really specific. Plus, what if you get stuck in traffic and never make it to the mall?
If it’s in your destiny to meet a certain person, rest assured, you will… the Universe will make sure of it…
It’s just that it’s not necessarily predetermined how that meeting will occur.
The most important thing to remember about psychic predictions and destiny is…
Our free will allows us to choose not to go to the mall that day, even if our Higher Self and Spirit Guides are nudging us (in the form of intuition) that we should get to the mall ASAP!
In other words, because we have free will, we might choose to ignore our intuition and not go to the mall. We might even choose to ignore Mr. Wonderful if he’s standing right in front of us in line. Make sense?

Then Why do Some Psychic Predictions Come True?
There are times when things that are foreseen in psychic predictions do come true.
I remember once telling a client that she would get pregnant on her honeymoon and she did!
Why then, do some psychic predictions come true, while others don’t? It basically works like this:
An intuitive reader (this includes tarot card readers) can sense what is in your energy fields right now.
They can see where you are heading if you stay on the path you are on. But remember, you can change that path at any moment. A friend of mine who used to give prediction readings would tell her clients, “If you don’t like something that you hear, you can change it.”
Also keep in mind that other people who are involved in your situation also have free will and their actions can change the outcome, too.
For example, you may ask an intuitive reader if you and your spouse will be getting divorced. Right now, the reader might be picking up that yes, it feels like a divorce is imminent.
But you or your spouse might decide that you’ve put too much into this marriage to quit – so, the two of you decide to give counseling a shot and end up living happily ever after.
The reading is “valid” (for lack of a better word) right now.
The Best Psychics in the World Got It Wrong
While I was a student of mediumship, I had the opportunity to be given readings by some of the best and well known intuitive readers in the world.
Even though these were the “cream of the crop” psychics, I started to notice something interesting:
Almost none of the psychic predictions I was given came true.
In all honesty, the only thing that has come to fruition is that I have become a professional intuitive reader and medium.
That’s it… nothing else. (And trust me, there was A. LOT.)
Don’t get me wrong. These psychics were great and amazingly accurate. They could read my energy like nobody’s business. And they were able to point out the best paths for me to take in my life… the paths that would make me the happiest.
The readings were enlightening, inspiring, and insightful…
but the psychic predictions. Nope – didn’t come true.
(BTW, if you’d like to talk to a psychic about your path or destiny, I recommend my affiliate partners over at AskNow because they test all of their psychics. I think they have a $1/minute reading or $10 for 15-minute reading offer right now – just make sure to ask for that special, okay?)
How Modern Day Intuitives are Handling Psychic Predictions
The days of your grandma’s fortune-telling type readings are over (thankfully!). These days, psychics and tarot card readers are giving readings that EMPOWER their clients.
It’s really exciting! These days, the best psychics will:
- Tell you straight out that psychic predictions aren’t set in stone. This way they don’t limit your free will.
- Tell you the possible outcomes of choosing Path A over Path B.
Handling future outcomes as possibilities honors the free will of the client. It’s also much more inspiring than giving straight psychic predictions.
But, if you want to see a reader with the intention of getting some predictions, the choice is always yours. Remember, it’s your life and YOU have free will :)
