people have an emotional style . . . this is the essence, the "hum", to who they are
they have a history and a basic, straight out of the box "spiritual essence" (or, seen in another way, karmic "profile"); these two factors commingle . . . you look at these building blocks
and determine, as best you can
the "truth" of what they say they want and the "hum" (always a hum) this "gives off"
is this truth "the truth"? . . . are they lying to themselves? yes or no?
once you have a relatively clear picture of these elements: who they "start out as", what parts of their childhood may how #collided with that . . . and how much they understand about what they #truly want
because usually what they want is not them but the echo of someone else
then the future (which is simply intention + essence - lack of clarity)
is relatively easy to predict
