- Wedding: April 2011
So, I’m sharing this story mostly for fun. Although it did throw me through a loop I am by no means cancelling my wedding because of the words of one man. It sure did shake me up a bit though. Here is what happened:
Our company recently had an open house for all of our clients and business partners. Everyone was having a great time enjoying wonderful food and drink when I was approached by one of our business partners. He asked me if I wouldn’t mind stepping aside with him for a moment. At first I thought he wanted to discuss a business proposal or something similar so when he asked me if he could read my palm I was a little surprised.
He told me that although this was a little unprofessional he just felt the urge to speak with me because something had drawn him to me. He explained to me that when he was a boy an elder in his native home (British New Guinea) had taught him the art of palm reading and he felt that because of the connection he had felt to me he would read a message meant for me. I was a little hesitant, but mostly captivated so I let him do the reading.
He started by saying, “I will first tell you your past so that you can believe me when I share with you your future.” This man does not know me outside of work (he actually works with an affiliate company and I’m new to this town anyway) so it’s not possible that he would know anything about me from the past. He then went on to tell me a ton of characteristics about myself and explained my relationship with my mother to a T.
Normally, this wouldn’t phase me. It’s not hard to guess the life of a upper-middle class girl working in a corporate office, so many of the things he said could very well have been guesses. What really got to me was this though. He said, “When you were a teen you were very sick. You had a very dark energy around you.” I replied with yes I had been ill and hospitalized due to complications with a case of mono that I had caught. He looked me straight in the eye and said, “No this illness was worse and effected you for years, but it’s okay because that’s not who you are now.” I almost broke down in tears. Not very many people know, but between the ages of 16-18 I was severly depressed to the point where I began to have suicidal tendencies. It was a very dark time for me and it took a lot of time and attention to get better. I’m a completely different person now in life with happiness and confidence, but it shocked me that it felt as though he saw inside of me to my core.
He then went on, “Now that I have shown you that I can see your life through your hands, would you like to know what else I have to say?” Obviously, I was so caught up in this I said, “YES!” What he said next was very disappointing however. He said, “You will get married, but this marriage will fail. The man you are with now is not the man who will be the father of your children. You will have two children, but that will be years from now because you still have so much to experience.” He warned me, “Watch for the person who’s birthday is in June. Although it may not be intentional, that person will be the one who tears this first marriage apart. There will be many struggles surrounding this person.” The very last thing he said is, “I wish you the best for the future, but please don’t get married right now; it will save you a great deal of heartache.”
I just stood there dumb founded. My FI’s son from his previous relationship is the only person in our lives that has a birthday in June. We’re currently going through a horrible custody battle right now that has the next few hearing scheduled for before and after our wedding. It’s costing us tons of money and a whole lot of stress and arguments. How could this palm reader know this? Is it just a coincidence?
When I went home that night Fiance was away for work and sitting home alone, I cried. I’ve since thought it over and I know I can’t let this man’s words effect the decisions of my life. It’s all just very surreal to hear words like that come from a strangers mouth. What is your take on this? Does anyone have a similar experience to share?
