Perception

I went to a psychic fair today . We decided to make it a girls day out . I went with my mum my sister and my daughter .

We didn’t know what it would be about but we thought it would be fun . I was standing in a line with a lot of others waiting for a reading . As you can imagine there were many alternative types there , big into new age therapies and psychic phenomenon .

However standing in that line I was struck by how everyone in the lines perception of the line was so different .

I was standing calmly , enjoying looking around the room at all the people giving and receiving readings .

I was particularly enjoying the seriousness of my 5 year olds face as she sat listening to her aunts future , pondering herself how long we were going to stay in this boring place !!!

The lady in front of me was complaining about the set up , about how she was there to see Patricia Buckley and no one else . The kind lady was explaining to her that it was a first come first served basis and you got whichever reader was free..

There’s so much negative energy in this room she retorted .

I felt no such thing ! My turn came and the girl told me to spend more time in nature and to accept myself for who I am . Nothing too dramatic, but pleasant none the same .

That night as we watched Marcia cross from desperate housewives on the tv my husband said to me I had no idea that the ladies in that show didn’t get on . He had already seen the show it was a repeat . I listened to the same interview and didn’t pick this up at all .

As I went to bed I thought how perception is key . What life throws at us is very much how we see it . Difficulties may be seen as opportunities , depending on who is the perceiver .

what you see and hear depends very much on where you are standing and on the type of person you are
