Is it My Job to Find Osama Bin Laden?

I recently listened to some debunkers and skeptics of psychics on Larry King. They were discussing the rules and regulations for what makes a psychic valid. Before I go further, since when has it become all right for someone who is not expert in my field to tell me what makes me an expert in my field? I have spent 29 years of my life understanding energy, and the unseen part of life. I typically don’t waste my time with debunkers. Occasionally I get tired of being attacked by some stranger who doesn’t “get it”, or doesn’t care enough to educate themselves to make an informed critique. They feel justified in lambasting something or someone they don’t understand because its suits the purpose of their ego.
Back to the Larry King program. One person on the panel indicated that the information psychics offer is irrelevant and unnecessary. Further, that if a psychic were to be truly authentic and add value to the planet, why wouldn’t “they” find Osama Bin Laden?
The person who made that statement was of a particular religious faith. If this person of God really understood God, spirituality or psychics, they would know that the benefit of the work is what happens internally, not externally. It is the internal changes that manifest the external changes. A simple law of nature that has eluded this learned spiritual individual.
I suppose if I wanted to put my energy into finding missing persons, including Osama Bin Laden, I could do that. I would much rather put my energy into validating the truth of who we are as spirit and empowering people to have more authentic contributions to the planet. I’m one of these crazy people who “thinks” globally and acts locally. More over, when we become empowered to create authentically from the part of ourselves that is timeless, that is where inspiration, miracles and insight are born. Perhaps through a spiritual side effect, a metaphysician would indeed find Osama Bin Laden. How do I know? I don’t. What I do know is that it’s the marriage of authentic self to Source that empowers us individually, and globally. In this marriage is where real power takes hold.
In this ego driven culture, there are those who want to believe that “we have all the power”. These people don’t even get Awareness 101. We are co-creators, and thoughts are things. Everything is energy. Yet, the ego driven debunkers on Larry King were shouting at the top of their lungs, saying nothing of value, and demonstrating a lack of spiritual awareness in action.
Finally, is it not the responsibility of our government to find Osama Bin Laden? The government said it was their number one objective. The government has been unable to find Osama Bin Laden. Is our government invalid?
Why are psychics held to a different standard? It’s because the misinformed expect us to work magic. We are fortune tellers after all, right? Wrong. We’re people with some heightened awareness who have personal experience with the intangible becoming tangible. To date we do not have technology that can analyze it, break it down, and serve it up in some way, the ego driven need to see it. We can't bring out a bible and say, “see I’m following the rules”. We are following the rules of the God of our heart. We let our conscience lead the way. In the world of the ego driven self-righteous, there is no room for conscience.
In any industry you have amazing people, and incompetent people and everything in between. The psychic industry is the same. The only way you will know if a psychic is valid is if you validate it for yourself. There is no other way. You can’t read a book, an article or anything else to make it real for yourself. You have to rely on your own heart and conscience through experience. One size (psychic) does not fit all. It is the path and the need of each individual to discover their own truth. One person may think a psychic they visited was nothing short of AMAZING. Someone else going to the same psychic will think they were TERRIBLE. That is because this is a spiritual practice. Sometimes
read-ee’s are not ready to hear truth. Or the psychic interprets the information incorrectly. Or, they simply were not a match.
The message here is this: if you don't know what you're taking about, if you haven't spent at least 20 years delving into metaphysics, keep your mouth shut. There's enough noise pollution in the world already.
FYI, for the record it's not my job to find Osama Bin Laden.
