This week for Bikinis in the Snow, we definitely stepped out of our comfort zones and tried something we have never tried before. We went to a psychic reading.
Getting a Psychic Reading as a Couple in Austin, Texas
We met with a psychic here in Austin and had lithomancy (stones) and a card reading. We each met with the psychic for 30 minutes. For both of us, our futures were very promising. He was very optimistic about what the next year or so will bring. For me, there were a few things, that I thought were somewhat specific. He asked if I had my own business when I asked questions about the placement of the luck stones. Also, maybe I’m reading too much into this or looking for a sign, but near the spot where the stones indicated I would have success, the queen card was drawn. Maybe that’s relating to Cha Ching Queen?
How did I feel before trying this challenge?
I was pretty excited about getting a psychic reading. I have always wanted to do that but chickened out.
How did I feel during the challenge?
Right at the beginning, I was a little worried that something bad might be foreseen. And, what would I do with that information if I was told it? I enjoyed hearing what the psychic had to say and took it all with a grain of salt. I found the whole process interesting.
How do I feel after the challenge?
Like the other challenges, I’m glad we tried something new to both of us. I doubt I would go again, but it is a fun experience to talk about and think about.
What did I learn?
I learned that, as the psychic said, no one can tell a person everything and free will is always at play. Basically, my future is (somewhat) up to me and the choices I decide to make. I also learned that Morry is a good sport because this was way more out of his comfort zone than it was for me.
