Can You Make A Decent Cup Of Coffee?

The question is whether you should learn to be psychic, or not. To answer this question I will explore using one of my favorite subjects…coffee! cupofcoffee

“But Dixie”, I can hear you asking, “what does coffee have to do with learning to be psychic… or using tarot cards, or runes, or anything intuitive?” Well, truth be told, I feel that coffee can be related to just about anything.

Let me tell you about my relationship with coffee. I love it. It’s my favorite drink and I regularly drink about three to six cups a day. I adore it’s taste, smell, and texture. I guess you could say that I’m an aficionado. I can taste the difference between various roasts, as well as the countries the coffee came from, and whether it was grown organically, or not. I’ve written articles, essays, and short stories about the subject of coffee.

But, here’s the kicker – I cannot make coffee! I’m not kidding. My husband has to make coffee for me, which he does every day. And considering how much I drink, this is no small job! We go through a coffee machine a year. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve tried to make coffee. I’ve measured it, I’ve poured the water. I’ve bought an espresso machine, tried to master the steamer. I even have a French press, but I have not once – not once – been able to make coffee that tasted good!

So, what does this have to do with learning to be psychic? Here’s the thing. I know that if I tried every day I could learn to make a decent cup of coffee. I know I’d actually have to practice grinding, measuring, pouring, and all the rest, over and over. And frankly, I feel it’s not worth the effort. I have someone who makes a perfect cup of coffee every time and seems to not have to put any effort into it. Now, I suppose if I end up divorced I’ll have a problem, but I don’t see that in my future, thank goodness!

The process of learning to make coffee is the same as learning to be psychic. You can learn, and everyone should try! It might come naturally to you. You might buy some tarot cards and find that they speak to you. You might find some crystals that allow you to see things you otherwise wouldn’t. If so, that’s wonderful. It won’t be much of an effort to perfect your natural gift.

But, what if you try and nothing happens? You seek a vision and you have nothing except the vague inclination that perhaps you left your oven on? Is that bad? No! You can still learn, but you have to ask yourself if it’s worth the effort? If you have a psychic you trust and go to for advice, don’t stress too much about learning yourself. We all have people we trust. I trust my husband to make coffee when I can’t. You can trust your psychic to help you, if you find that you’re having problems developing your own abilities.

I imagine one day my husband will teach me how to make a perfect cup of coffee. And one day I’ll teach someone who is struggling with their gifts to be a psychic reader! But, until that day, I’m content to relax with a cup of coffee my husband made, while reading for those who might need my help.

If you’d like to know more about learning to be a psychic, please contact me! I have books I can recommend and meditations you can try, and if you find that it isn’t something that comes naturally then, of course, I’m always pleased to help and honored that you trust me. And I’ll probably be sipping coffee while we talk!

Very good article! I believe that what you are saying is true, and also encourage others to try to develop their psychic abilities. I'm sorry but I laughed a little when you said you didn't know how to make coffee, especially when you love it so much! :-)
