A Bit Of Psychic Bio-Chemistry

A friend mentioned hair loss. It had begun, he said, the day after he had undergone a surgical procedure involving a general anaesthetic. He wondered if there might be a connection, and wanted me to ask the Tarot.   Instead, I reached for my new oracle deck based on the Periodic Table. Yes.  Mendeleev‘s Periodic Table as remembered from chemistry lessons and beyond.  See his portrait, above.

The friend has a background as a research chemist, and in view of the question, being an issue of biology or bio-chemistry, I thought he might be interested in seeing what I would get from this deck.

The Elemental Hexagons Deck.

I shuffled the cards blind, just as I do with my Tarot cards.

What was causing S- ‘s hair to fall out? What was most relevant for him to know?

I drew just one card.  It said Potassium = Soundness.

My friend expressed doubt. He was not aware of any particular connection between body levels of Potassium and hair health. Nor was I.  I knew it only as a key metabolizer, a crucial part of the body pump that works in tandem with sodium, and that bananas are reputedly a good source.

When I obtain a result psychically that I do not understand in real, physical terms, I use the psychic clue to drive new research. So I searched online,  cross referencing ‘potassium‘ with ‘hair loss.’

And found….plenty to suggest that there is a well-known, if not conclusively researched  correlation between potassium deficiency ( hypokalemia)  and hair loss.

Use of certain medications, including corticosteroids, can create a state of lowered potassium with associated hair fall.

Potassium is a mineral that helps nerves and muscles function properly and is mainly obtained
from foods. The kidneys help remove excess potassium to maintain proper balance
of the mineral in the body. Having a very low potassium level can be
life-threatening. Lower-than-normal levels of potassium in the blood may be
caused by use of medications such as diuretics, laxatives, certain antibiotics
and insulin, according to PubMedHealth.

Citrus juices, tomatoes, bananas, canteloupes, lima beans, chicken, salmon, nuts and seeds are good dietary sources of potassium. The RDI of potassium is about 4,700 a day of which a banana represents only 450 mg. Care must be used with supplements. Excess potassium is as potentially harmful as low potassium.

There are of course, other possible causes of hair loss.  Iron, zinc and copper deficiencies, for instance, may also result in male or female hair loss.

But in a psychic reading, my focus is on the person asking the question.  I am looking for what is particular to them. This is why, unlike some readers,  I don’t make generic predictions along the lines of daily columns such as ‘Today’s Tarot Card.’

Whose card would it be?  What would be its meaning?

A meaningful reading needs a context.

This one card reading from the Elemental Hexagon Deck is giving me much food for thought.

It is the reader’s mind doing the work in a psychic reading, not the tools, be they cards, rune, dice, pendulums.  These tools are translation devices, whose task is to pick up signals being beamed out from the readers unconscious or sub conscious, and to amplify them,  so that the reader can consciously articulate them.

I know far less about chemistry than does my friend, but the cards enabled me to ‘point into the wind’, and we both discovered something new…hopefully, the information may even help him.
