    I was raised in a catholic family but I don't go to church anymore. I know God's real. I believe in him but I don't have to go to church to worship him. We have our own relationship. Yes, I believe in psychics, spirituality, karma, magic, telling the future, tarot readings, etc. What are your feelings about this issue? Don't you think there is a reason for everything, and everything happens for a reason? Good luck, bad luck, curses, hexes, etc.?

    apolo_delfos saidI am in your same situation since Iwas raised as a catholic and went to a catholic school but even though I do believe there must be somethign out there, I don't know if it's a god, several gods, energy, spirits, or however you wanna call it.

    Of course I beleieve in tarot readings since I am a tarotist icon_razz.gif Unfortunately, many people take tarot as a game and there is a lot scamming people making it hard to believe it is trustable.
    Besides, there is people who thinks they know how to do it and doesn't do it well reinforcing the belief "it's all fake" but as there is bad tarotists, I also met bad doctors, lawyers, etc and not because of that I said "medicine is fake and useless".

    Luckily, I had incredible results with people all this time but I have to say one thing. everyone thinks that tarot is used to say how your future will be and that's NOT how it works.
    Tarot will give you advices on different situations you have to deal with and if you still wanna use it in an adivinatory way, they'll tell you what could happen if you still keep acting the same way.
    For example, if I tell you, "You're going to find a boyfrined very soon" but you never go out from your home to meet new people andl ive like a hermit, of course it will never happen but not becauseI lead to you but because you changed your own destiny.
    the same can be backwards. If I tell you "You'll get fired cause you always get late to work" and you start getting early, of course my prediction won't come true cause you fixed that mistake.

    Unfortunately people tend to misunderstand what tarot is for and the message the tarotist gives them. icon_razz.gif


    Exactly, it's meant to direct you in what is wrong, how to correct it and 99% of it is up to the person to do the work not the tarot reader. It is real though, very much real.

    I think some of that is real. But not all people that claim it are real. Just like people who cook in restaurants are not all chefs..mainly illegal aliens.

    I believe in a "higher power" that is a genderless, divine, universal, and in many ways, incapable of being fully understood by the human mind. If you're familiar with the Hindu "Brahman" or the Cabalistic "Kether" you'll have a better understanding of what I mean. I believe that this supreme universal force has many different names that humans have attributed to it in order to access it.

    When it comes to psychics, I believe that we all possess an intuition and inner-knowing- I don't think that specific people are "chosen" to have these "gifts." I believe that we can all access our intuition and spiritual mind if we so choose to seek it.

    Magic, I believe is simply another way of describing what a lot of people now call the "Law of Attraction." Through thoughts, words, and actions, we can will something to change in our own lives, and/or the world around us. Prayer can also be considered "magic" in some ways- if you are praying for change, you are petitioning a divine energy (god, goddess, etc. Whatever you choose to call the divine) and requesting that according to their will, your request be granted.

    My faith is very non-denominational in all senses of the word. I pray to the divine as my Mother and Father, I enjoy learning about every faith under the sun (especially Gnosticism, Cabala, and Hinduism) and not living by a set of rules and dogmas.

    I believe that "bad luck" is simply our own negative thoughts, words, and actions manifesting itself into our lives. I don't believe that it's the result of some type of spell or punishment. I think it is our own doing, and can easily be changed by changing the way we think- turning a negative into a positive.

    Religions are originally spiritual teachings....but they were changed by cruel rulers to use it for their own purpose....

    Whatever happens in your reality is actually a projection of your thought or feeling. In that sense we are the creators...

    Don't forget:
    thoughts become reality,
    what you think you become.

    No, not at all. If by 'reason for everything' you mean 'everything is causally related', then I don't think that everything happens for a reason, but if the world should exist in that manner, then why would that fact provide evidence for the paranormal claims of psychics, witches, and other mediums? If by 'reason for everything' you mean 'everything acts or is acted upon in accordance with some purpose', then again I don't think that everything happens for a reason because there's no empirical evidence of any extramental telos and once again, I don't understand how its existence would provide support for paranormal claims (why would the understanding of purposes be better granted to mediums than, say, scientists?).

    As Aurelius advises in his Meditations, one ought to "... smile at the tales of miracle-mongers and soothsayers...".

    I agree, the ones that are not real and have no power are just in it for money, sadly.

    I love talking about this because people have a way of putting things into perspective to try to understand it. I am not putting anyone down just saying that some things are really honestly unexplainable and uncontrollable. Some people do seriously have a foretelling, psychic, healing, special power, unexplainable ability to alter the way things, events, traumas, accidents, good and bad "things" happen. Trying to be more specific about any such thing so others have a way of understanding it, is not a reality. You can pray, you can hope, you can do whatever you think is right but in the end there are just some things that can't be controlled or understood no matter how much one wants.

    To touch base on a few things you stated, everyone has intuition and like I said before you can do whatever you think is best but somethings are not controllable by any one person. Magic, I do not think that what you stated is actually how I think of it but ok everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Magic is something unexplainable and some have the power to change things and others cannot. Prayer is a way of reaching you inner spiritual self but in no way is every prayer going to be answered like you put in a prayer and a wish comes out. Although some people can make things come true. Regardless of how you perceive bad or good luck I do not think what you are saying is how it actually is. Like I said people have a way of trying to put things into a perspective as a way to understand it. Well sadly, not everything is controllable or explainable. Things just happen sometimes. I very much believe in good and bad luck. Also good and bad energy, which is the result of someones luck and some things cannot be changed or controlled no matter how much one wants it to be that way or wants to control it themselves. You must have that gift to control it lol. But thanks for replying to my post ;)
