Psychic Counselor's Handbook
by Ralph D. Jordan
Everything Is Information
The basis upon which we must build our ethical practice of counseling is that everything is information. There are no labels such as good or bad: things simply are. So we begin by asking the client: Do you want to live in this situation? Do you want to continue to feel rejected and unloved? Do you want to continue to feel poor? Do you want to continue to be mentally unbalanced? If the client answers no, then we provide the options, disciplines, and directions by which the client can attend to business and become successful.
Information and Opportunity versus Punishment
What is important is how we view the situations, not only in the client's life but also in our own. Situations are information and opportunities as opposed to limitations, destructive actions, or punishment. It is vital to bear in mind that virtually all of our clients, in their subconscious minds, believe that their life situations are punishment for misdemeanors in this or other lifetimes. They will not necessarily say this but be assured that they believe it. Even educated clients who should know better may ask: When will it stop? When will I overcome this? When am I going to better my life? When will things change? When will the stars free me? When am I going to move through this number three year? When am I going to get out of my number two year and into my number nine, number eight year, etc.? (referring to the science of numerology).
We need to stress that the situations are not punishments but are simply information and opportunities for self-evolution. After all, self- evolution is the name of the game, and how we ensure evolution, not only for ourselves but for those who come to us as counselors hoping to benefit from our disciplined practice of E.S.P. (I will refer later to the sciences such as body language, colorology, transactional analysis, graphoanalysis, and numerology). By the way, transactional analysis requires us to listen, not talk, to become a good listener.
