AYRIAL Newsflash February 28th: Free Will & the Future; How to Spot a Fake Psychic; Member Spotlight

Hi, I’m Victoria and here’s your daily roundup of body, mind and spirit happenings.

Free Will & Understanding the Psychic Reading
Yesterday we mentioned that are two types of Free Will, the first being contracusal. The other type of freedom we will label Contextual. Defenders of this variety see no incompatibility between Contextual Freedom and strict universal causality or conditioning. For them, free acts are those which are neither compelled nor constrained. That is, if no one forces you to go to a certain movie, if you decide to see it at a certain time, and finally, nothing keeps you from doing so, then attending the film is a free act. With contextual freedom we are not concerned with the many different ways you many have been conditioned to be the person you are. Nor are we concerned with whether or not you could have chosen otherwise. We are interested in what you choose to do and whether anyone forced you into something you did not wish to do.

Obviously, contextual freedom is a matter of degree. Everybody has some of it, depending upon their circumstances. The quest for political, economic, or religious freedom, for example, is basically a quest for a greater degree of contextual freedom in a particular area. The fact is, everyone relies upon both senses of freedom, the contracusal and the contextual, in daily living. Yet it is the contextual type of freedom that most in the psychic communities appear to rely on. It might be argued, independent of this discussion, that belief in contracausal freedom has no basis in fact. Regardless of what you choose, there had to be some reasons for causes for your decision. No decision to act can spring from nothing.

When a psychic affirms your freedom, he or she means one of two things: (1) You are not being forced into a certain course of events which he or she sees; (2) Nothing, including that vision, is constraining your desire or decision to move in a certain direction. It is your choice to make. This is not to say you could have done otherwise under identical circumstances. It is to say that your decision reflects your interests, needs and critical reflection.

Fake Psychics – How to spot one!
Here’s a related grouping of red flags to run hard and fast from if you are handed one of these lines within the first few minutes of your reading:

• “I GUARANTEE I can change your financial circumstances (or love life, work situation, health issue, etc.) for the better.”

How can any ethical person honestly guarantee things will change or improve in your area of concern? There are other variables and actions that must be considered by the client; thus, even the most ethical and accurate psychic will not guarantee an outcome.

• The “curse on you (or a loved one)” ruse.

This is one of the most famous, and still very prevalent, psychic scams. The fraudster determines if the client is insecure or frightened and easily manipulated; this is what they’re hoping for. Then the game of gaining the client’s trust begins, while the client is slowly being reeled in.

• “I perceive a dark and evil spirit that means you harm is around you; that’s why you are feeling so emotionally upset, experiencing financial difficulties, have become so physically ill.” (You can fill in any other malady or situation that might fit.)
