When I see that Fahrusha reads crystal balls while perusing her website, I have the impression that I am finally going to meet the gypsy backroom fortune-teller of cultural lore. I’m shocked to find that contrary to the implications of her name and profile, Fahrusha is an earth mother type, one you could plunk down in the middle of my nature-worshipping home town of Taos, New Mexico, with ease. I can see her drinking a green smoothie and watching the sun set over the mountains; except for the fact that she’s totally East coast, that is.
She’s from Jersey, not the middle east, doesn’t sport a gypsy accent, and is in fact without any gimmicks at all. She took the name Fahrusha when she began belly dancing many years ago, and kept it for professional purposes. She has a solid reputation, has been on The View, in the New York Times, was featured as a New York Magazine psychic star, and even does handwriting analysis for Tiger Beat.
She grew up in a fairly average working class family, although she says her mother was intuitive, and her father was downright psychic and could see and speak to the dead. She wants none of that, and although she has seen spirits, it’s not her thing. She leans on the tarot and pictures for her readings, sees, gets impressions, and also hears voices on occasion.
She’s careful about speaking in absolutes, not wanting to collapse the possibilities and choices available in the Multiverse (as in Quantum Physics not making a wave into a particle, thereby leaving open the stage for free will), and is the most scientifically knowledgeable psychic I have spoken to thus far. She’s expansive, and interested in the possibilities of things like the existence of aliens or inter-dimensional beings, the future we are facing on earth as humans, the overall themes facing society. She makes mood stabilizing crystal jewelry, which speaks to her love of and respect for the Earth. She’s not in the business of peddling her wares, but does make things for clients upon request. Crystals have a very gentle energy, and are soothing. She says people who go around making grand claims about the immediate effects of crystals don’t really understand that they simply emanate a sweet natural vibration that can help to ease some discomfort and stress.
To enhance her knowledge and experience, she has affiliated herself with The Monroe Institute, which was founded by the late Robert Monroe and is now led by Paul Rademacher, a former minister, and “Skip” Atwater, who once led the Defense Intelligence Agency‘s Remote Viewing Program. She enjoys what they have to offer as well as their philosophy, which asks only that each person consider that they might be more than a body and a brain. Everything else is up in the air.
I’m pretty sure it’s the blank look I get on my face-when she tells me that everything is happening at the same time because time is but a construct of our human brains and perceptions-that prompts her to suggest several books to read (listed in the book recommendation section of this blog) so that I can better understand concepts of physics and theories about time and space. She is, when all is said and done, a highly intellectual and scientifically propelled individual. Because of this she is loathe to draw conclusions about anything, careful to speak to her own experiences rather than making sweeping statements about the nature of the universe. Still, there are things, mysterious things that must have an explanation somehow; she just doesn’t know what it is.
Does she believe in past lives? Not sure. What she does know is that when she was three years old, she found a piece of Egyptian cloth in her Grandmother’s things, put it on and began belly dancing even though she was never taught. Still, she rattles off a few alternate possibilities to account for that phenomenon.
How does she do a reading? Some of it is common sense. She reads people’s body language, sure. She remarks on my light shade of lipstick, and says she could deduce a few things from that, or handwriting or any other number of pseudo-scientific methods. And when someone is asking about the boyfriend they drunk-texted last night, she can pretty easily tell them without any assistance from the ethers that such a behavior is generally not recommended. But there are other things that she cannot explain, like the dog she helped find through remote viewing (where she sees through the dog’s eyes to find out where it is), or the time she felt herself pushed into an Italian specialty store and missed being crushed by a taxi that killed two people, and most especially the seven-foot tall Nordic angel/alien type creature she saw with her actual two eyes and had a conversation with.
Still, she shrugs and says, “Who knows?”
As to free will vs. fate, she has an interesting take: if we love chocolate, and we have the very best piece of chocolate in front of us but she tells us that it’s going to be terrible for us, we are so conditioned to eat the chocolate that we will probably do it. She can see the most likely trajectory and most of the time we are behaviorally predictable. Does that mean we can’t change it? No. Just, it’s not so likely. Our personalities and behaviors are so developed that stepping out of them takes great effort and consciousness. All things should be possible though, she says…in theory.
She does think there’s something to the manifesting thing. When her daughter was little, she made a square on a piece of paper, drew Fahrusha inside the square, and titled it “Mommy on TV”. Within the week she was on David Letterman. And me, I qualify as a case in point. She had a thought that she might like to do a couple of blogs, and again, within the week I was one of two people asking for a blog interview. On my end, she is the first person I contacted that wasn’t referred to me. I was just poking around on the internet, and found her in a few articles, so I wrote her on the off-chance she might be interested. Was it related? Who knows? Maybe, maybe not.
That night I dream about Fahrusha. She’s standing in the corner of my room with a piece of paper, telling me things she forgot in the interview. ”You can do this?” I ask her. ”You can get into my dreams?” She doesn’t answer, just hands me the paper and disappears.
The next day when I wake up I want to call her, to ask her if it was real. I don’t though, because I get the feeling that she would just say, “Anything is possible. Who knows?”
