The guest speaker was a handwriting analyst. She also calls herself a spirit medium, paranormal researcher and a psychic. She can get you in touch with the dead either in a solo session or group. At the meeting, she asked everyone to write a few lines and hand it in. I wasn't going to do it, but one of our hostesses insisted. So I wrote something like: "Years of being a journalist have ruined my handwriting." (On the small piece of paper, that was three lines.)
She read some of them publicly, but she didn't get to mine. Now I was intrigued, so I waved her over to our table and asked her to do mine. "I saw this one but I passed it by because I thought it had information you might not want revealed publicly," she said.
She said she thought I was depressed and that something big had blindsided me. She also looked at Katie and said, "You're her main support, aren't you?" I asked how she knew I was depressed, and she said because instead of being in a straight line, my handwriting slanted down.
Yes I'm depressed! Yes something big got to me, namely, leukemia. Yes Katie is a big support!
By now I was hooked, and I asked my friend Claudia (Kristin's mother) if she would share a session with me and some others where I could talk to my mother.
"After graduation," she said. (Graduation is June 6.)
It's a good thing I didn't book it, because now I have calmed down.
Katie and Joe gave me more perspective.
The speaker told the women mostly general things that could be applied to a lot of people. Sometimes she went quickly through a bunch of character traits until she hit one that applied. She said things that were obvious, such as that Katie was a big support. Actually she said Katie was my main support, but it's more spread out than that. Also a lot of people can say they've been blindsided by something big, according to their definition of "big."
As for talking to my mother, I can do that myself without paying someone.
Well, I'll put it aside for now.
