Psychic predictions are greatly influenced by our free will. Think about it: What if Bella had picked Jake? What if Rose had made room on that raft for Jack?
Because, even if a psychic had predicted that Bella and Edward would get married (or the demise of Jack), free will could have flipped the whole script! Crazy, right?!
So today, I’m using my 20+ years as a psychic medium to teach you about:
- Why some predictions come true and others don’t
- Why you don’t need to worry about missing a meeting with your soulmate

What is Free Will?
Many people think that the future can be predicted with pinpoint precision. The truth is, it can’t. Why? Because we all have free will.
So what is free will?
Free will is the birthright of every human being on this planet. Dictionary.com defines it as:
“The doctrine that the conduct of human beings expresses personal choice and is not simply determined by physical or divine forces.”
- We have choices
- All parts of our lives are not predetermined
- Our decisions affect outcomes
For clarity, this means our actions can alter psychic predictions (i.e., change what was predicted in a reading). After all, we are all here to have human experiences and evolve our souls.
What if we didn’t have free will?
If we didn’t have free will, we’d all be walking around like puppets with every moment of our lives mapped out for us.
Not only would that be boring, it would also ruin our ability to experience everything that life has to offer!
Though this popular quote has nothing to do with psychic ability, it sums up this post nicely:
But What About Destiny?
Most people believe in fate.
But many people also believe that we, with the help of our spirit guides, predetermine some parts of our lives. In other words, we may choose to have certain experiences for soul growth or to balance karma.
Pro tip: Not everything is fate, but some of the “biggies” (like who we will marry) are.
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 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 before our incarnation. (Next time your kids complain, remind them that they picked you.) :)
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.
So it’s not predetermined that you will meet your soulmate on April 15 while waiting in line at Starbucks. That’s super specific. Plus, what if you get distracted by a shoe sale and never make it to Starbucks? (BTW, here are 5 tips for finding your soulmate.)
The point is:
If it’s your destiny to meet a certain person, you will… the Universe will make sure of it. It’s just that it’s not necessarily predetermined how that meeting will occur. (Read more about destiny and how you can have more than one destiny.)
The most important thing to remember about psychic predictions and destiny is…
Our free will allows us to choose not to go to Starbucks that day… even if our intuition and and spirit guides are nudging us to!
So, because we have free will, we can choose to ignore our intuition and not go for a latte. Or we can choose to ignore Mr. Wonderful… if he’s standing right in front of us in line.
Why do Some Psychic Predictions Come True?
There are times when psychic predictions come true.
Then why do some psychic predictions come true, but not others? It works like this:
An psychic reader (or tarot card reader) 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 you have the power to change that path at any time.
Pro tip: if you hear something you don’t like during a psychic reading, change it! :)

Other People Have Free Will, Too
Remember that the other people have free will, too. That means their actions can also affect the outcome of a situation.
For example, you may ask an intuitive reader if you and your spouse will get divorced. Right now, the psychic might feel like a divorce is in your future.
But you or your spouse might change your mind. You may decide that you’ve put too much into the marriage to quit, go to counseling, and live happily ever after!
That means: the reading is “valid” right now.
The Best Psychics in the World Got It Wrong
When I was a studying mediumship, I had intuitive readings from some of the best psychics in the world. But even though these were well known psychics, almost none of their predictions came true!
Actually, the only prediction that came true is that I became a psychic medium. That’s it, nothing else. (And trust me, there was a lot!)
Don’t get me wrong. The psychics were accurate and empowering! They were also able to guide me to the best path for my highest good…
The readings were enlightening, inspiring, and insightful. But the predictions didn’t come true.
(BTW, if you’d like to talk to a psychic about your path or destiny, I like AskNow because they test all of their psychics. Plus, they have a $1/minute reading or $10 for 15-minute reading — just make sure to ask for that special price, okay? You can also learn how to get a reading here.)
Psychic Prediction Takeaways and Tips
The days of your grandma’s fortune-telling readings are over (thankfully!) These days, psychics and tarot card readers give readings that empower people.
The best psychics will:
- Tell you that psychic predictions aren’t set in stone
- Not limit your free will
- Tell you the possible outcomes of choosing Path A over Path B
Handling future outcomes as possibilities honors your free will. It’s also much more inspiring than giving straight psychic predictions.
- Read more about future predictions (including the scoop on career and children 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.
