    Just curious what your experiences have been. I'm not necessarily asking a general, "do you believe in psychics/mystics/fortune tellers". I want to know for those who have actually had a reading done.

    I've never had a reading, but it sounds like fun.

    In Santa Clara, CA (about 50 miles south of San Francisco), they used to have psychic fairs, where lots of people in the business (tarot card readers, palm readers, etc.) would set up their tables and tell your fortune, for a fee, of course.

    Two friends and I chose this elderly lady. I don't remember her using any props. She just looked at us and told our fortune. She told my ex partner that he would have a close call with death, which later happened. Probably just a coincidence, but I never forgot it.

    It's fun to do, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    So, what did she say to you? and what was the outcome?

    They are snake oil salespeople.


    Wait, you mean Paul isn't your voluptuous brunette?

    I know most of them are frauds, but I remember a friend wen to one more than 20 years ago and the psychic literally gave her the winning lottery numbers. My friend didn't play them. I've heard other mixed stories about them

    My dad reads my palm every now and then. Every second person in India I know visits a palmist or astrologer frequently. Elite astrologers even have their own shows on national television.

    Never had a fortune telling or psychic reading, but one time I went and had an enema and afterwards everything seemed a lot clearer and I left with a sense of ease, saneness and understanding.

    Not to sound weird, but my family (all passed away) was filled with mystics on my mother's side. My grandmother was said to have the power to heal people with her touch. That's how the story goes. My mother was a psychic. Not professionally, but she always knew what would happen. She was quite accurate. For instance, she would say, "On Wednesday, you'll get your acceptance letter to college." And then it would happen. It got to the point where I asked her to stop. It's not cool knowing everything. I don't care if you believe this shit or not. It just is.

    Been through and sadly today's world there are many money making scams rogues around... by far the ones that was genuine are those that dont need anything and nothing but just looking at You! ,your forehead and they speak front to you...Its that 3rd eye they see into.

    If you know what chakras all about, by having your Indigo Plexus (famously call 3rd eye!) brightly open you can see and feel as well on what's to come! your instinct will be sharp and you will development many white hair if you dont know how to discipline your mind .icon_biggrin.gif It takes great practice/meditation to archive that unless you are born with it!...done that just couldn't, probably later part in my life.

    the one who takes down your details are pretty blunt with their answer so far but only some sort true...they cant be specific on anything like "You will lead a group of people"icon_rolleyes.gif where or when? they cant tell.

    My family has worked a lot with Elizabeth Baron: http://elizabethbaron.com/. She's a trance medium who, naturally, goes into a trance and in her case invokes a particular saint for information.

    Obviously there are a wide spectrum and variety of psychic practices, with an even larger number of variances and styles in those practice, so having a bad (or good) experience with one is generally not indicative of how a different session with a different psychic will go.

    In Elizabeth's case, her readings are typically quite chilling in their accuracy. However, my particular opinion is to always be skeptical of such things, and view them at best as a kind of counsel to help inform future decisions, but not make them for you. At worst, I just view them as entertainment. Even a charlatan is good for a few laughs.

    Still, the occasional good reading can be very comforting, and I don't regret the money I've spent for peace of mind.

    i've had 2 tarot card readings. the 1st in a class on mysticism(s). he got everything wrong. the 2nd at a carnival at school. she got everything right as in knowing things about me that a stranger wouldn't know. she didn't tell me anything about my future, so i can't say how "real" she is.

    Thanks, tigrisblue. I appreciate the resource you mentioned. I've been trying to get better at meditation and she's another resource I'll check out.

    Many times. In fact, I'm overdue.

    I was raised around this sort of stuff. My mother is into many metaphysical topics and still is. My father on the other hand, is wildly against it and fought to keep me away and out of it when I was growing up (parents divorced when I was 3). Over the years, I have come to believe what my mother has taught me much more then my father for a variety of reasons. A major factor is that the experiences I have had, have proven themselves to be true, time and time again.

    Well, my Mom made me go to a methodist church on sundays when I was a little kid. That's about it.

    Oh, and my Dad would always have a water witch or two come out when he was going to drill a well. Some would use a forked willow stick and some would use two wires held by a pivot. After a while, he became convinced that he could do it himself. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I saw a palm reader in NYC a few years ago. Apparently I'm going to live to 91 yrs old. Yahoo!
