As I walked back from a hard day’s retail therapy a few weeks ago, totally lost in thought and focusing on the coffee and cigarette fix awaiting me at home, suddenly someone tapped me on the shoulder and jolted me back to reality…
“Pip! How are you? I haven’t seen you in ages!” It was Leah, a friend who I had lost touch with a while ago. Leah is a gorgeous, alternative model, and she jets off here and there at the drop of a hat.
“Oh wow Leah! Where have you been?” I asked.
“Oh here and there, you know me,” she smiled. “And actually I’m due to fly out to the States again in a couple of days, because guess what…? I’m getting married!”
Leah rattled on about this amazing guy she’d met, how she’d been jetting backwards and forwards in her spare time – you couldn’t help but notice the excitement in her voice.
“Have you got time to grab a coffee with me and catch up?” I asked, “I really need my caffeine fix, but I think you’ve got a lot to tell me.”
So we made our way to my bolt-hole, brewed the coffee and sat down.
My crystal was on the table, as I’d been doing a reading for a client.
“Hey, do you do readings?” she asked.
Before I could answer she asked if I would do her one, and I really couldn’t refuse. So we settled down and waited for the crystal to do its work.
I had an uneasy feeling, but equally I started to feel that Fate had played a hand in Leah bumping into me, and whatever needed to be passed on to her would, ultimately, be in her best interests.
The crystal never lies, and doesn’t cloak things we may not wish to hear with a sugar coating. But equally, it shows situations which may play out with different solutions, depending on the actions of the querent.
As the symbols swirled and started to take form, I could see what looked like a theatrical mask, lit from the side of the crystal. It was all framed inside a triangle.
Leah could obviously sense that I was a little concerned. “Well, what is it?” she asked.
“It’s showing me that there are things that have been hidden from you,” I answered. “But they are now being revealed. There would also seem to be somebody else involved, suggested by the triangle.”
The bottom of the crystal almost looked like there was a fire burning within the sphere.
“It’s hinting that you may have made some important decisions a touch too hastily,” I added. “But it’s also showing a forked line, like lightning, and an egg, which shows that there are decisions to be made and the promise of new beginnings”
Leah laughed, a little uneasily.
“Well, I think maybe I should go and finish my packing,” she said. “The plane waits for no man- or woman!”
We finished our coffee and chatted a little more, then with a hug and promises to keep in touch more, she left.
I pondered on the reading on and off for a few days, and then one evening, sitting at my computer, I noticed the little wiggling caterpillar pop up on my messages that meant Leah was writing to me.
“Oh my God! Pip, you won’t believe what’s happened!” she typed. The dots continued to dance, so I knew she was writing a long message, and waited for her to tell me. It seemed to take forever, but suddenly the message appeared.
“I flew out and met up with Kyle at the airport, it was the best thing ever. I had my wedding dress with me, everything had been sorted out, and it was like a fairytale. We checked into an hotel, and before we went down for dinner, Kyle took a shower. His cell suddenly lit up and vibrated, but made no other sound. I was sitting on the bed, and couldn’t help but notice that the message was from someone tagged in his cell as ‘Wifey’. My heart stopped and I felt sick. What was going on? Oh, I know I shouldn’t have done it Pip, but I had to check that message. What I saw made my stomach tie itself in knots. There was a photo of a woman, heavily pregnant, smiling at the camera and saying, ‘Baby and me can’t wait for you to come home!'”
When Kyle came out of the shower, there was no way I could hide how I was feeling. He asked me what was wrong, and I just had to tell him what I’d seen. First of all he ranted and shouted, but then he admitted that he was married, but he thought he could marry me too and get away with it! His wife knew nothing about me.”
Leah was right – I couldn’t believe what I was reading, but it all made sense. Leah went on to say that she’d flown back straight away, and was going to throw herself into work to get over the cheating piece of scum. She had some work booked in Germany, and she would let me know how it went.
We signed off, and I was still reeling from what she had told me, even though it had been predicted as a possibility in the crystal.
A week or so went by, and once again, I noticed the chat dots bouncing in the message box.
“Hey Pip! Everything is going amazingly here! I’ve done a few photo shoots and it’s all going really well. It looks like I’ll be here for a while working. And guess what else? What was it you said in that crystal reading about decisions and eggs??? LOL … Well – I’ve met the most wonderful woman, and I can’t believe how I feel about her myself! Thank you SO much Pip, your reading saved me from what could have been the worst decision in my Life! I don’t know why I was so worried!”
I don’t know who was the most surprised by Leah’s “new beginnings”, but maybe Leah just might get her fairy tale after all!
