The question is asked of me on occasion – Can you really see into the future using the Goddess Amulets? The answer is yes, and no.
I’ve been using the amulets for 20 years now and I have found that they can be very accurate, provided nothing in the present changes. As I am rather fond of saying:
The future isn’t set in stone, and even if it was you can always break the stone. The tricky part is knowing which stone to break.
It is my view that divinatory readings give a glimpse of what could happen, provided everything happening in the present continues along its current path. The present is constantly changing though. You take a different road into work and miss a traffic accident. Miss your regular bus and catch the next one, and discover your usual bus broke down. Some changes are dramatic, most are subtle. And, more often than not, it’s the subtle changes which can alter the course of your future.
When I do readings, whether for myself or for someone else, I am looking not so much into the future as into the present. Based upon where I am now in the present, what can I expect to come to me in future? Am I on the right track for what I want to accomplish? What is lurking within my subconscious that I need to be more aware of? Once I have this knowledge, then I can make a choice on what to do with it.
Where does this information come from?
Being a form of divination, it could be coming to me direct from a Divine source. Or, it could be tapping into subconscious thoughts. Or maybe I am conversing with Spirit Helpers. Or, possibly a combination of all three.
When I do a reading, I lay the amulets out as a Council of Elders, each imparting its wisdom. My own thoughts are that the source for this information depends upon which amulets are drawn.
There are 3 types of amulets in the set that I use. Goddess, animal, and symbol. The Goddess amulets correspond to Divine sources, animals to Spirit Helpers, and symbols to subconscious thoughts.
Together they can give insight into a current situation, and guidance on where one needs to focus their attention.
If this comes from a Divine Source, or from Otherworld where time has no meaning then why can’t it predict the future?
Because the future is not a static thing. Each action, each decision slightly changes the present. And with each change, possible futures are altered. Don’t like what you see coming up in your future? Then change your present.
