DEAR HARRIETTE: I had a dream the other day that my assistant was about to resign. For the next few days, every time I talked to her, I halfway held my breath knowing that the next thing she was going to say to me was goodbye. And yet it wasn’t. She did ask to speak to me about several sensitive matters. They all turned out to be various business dealings that we were handling -- until she wanted to talk about something else.
A week after having that premonition, my assistant told me she had “bittersweet news.” I knew what was next. She had, in fact, found a new job. She handled sharing the news with me well, and, of course, I wasn’t surprised. It’s so weird. I really did know before she said a word. People have called me clairvoyant. I don’t know about that. I do know that my assistant and I are in alignment, and I knew what was going to happen. Because we work so well together, I’m wondering if I should try to get her to stay. What do I do with this uncanny awareness that I have? -- Clairvoyant
DEAR CLAIRVOYANT: It probably took a lot for your assistant to share her news. Don’t try to keep her from her next opportunity. Instead, thank her for her time with you. You can tell her you had a sense that this was coming. Ask her to help you find an adequate replacement. Plan together for what needs to happen before she leaves.
As far as your sixth sense, use it to help guide your steps, not to stop others from living their lives.
