Question  Posted: 11:30 PM, July 20th (Sunday)

Who has consulted a psychic before about your life - present and future? Has anything he/she told you come true?

I'm a Christian, and hesitant on psychics but I've started to wonder if love is in my future. I want to love and be loved again.

I have and was told things I. *knew* for *sure* could absolutely *NOT* come true and they DID! Part of what she said sounded pretty far out, but did happen.

I went to a psychic fair once with no intention of getting a reading (I was looking for some literature) and one of the psychics there started talking to me, asked if I was getting a reading. I told her I wasn't. She told me I needed one, told me to sit down, and asked for a $1 bill. She spoke to me about my M as she folded the bill. I told her it was fine. She handed me the dollar back, folded into a bird, and said to keep it with me for protection.

I thought it very strange and forgot about the $1 folded into the bird (that is still in my wallet) for a long time. I have wondered since DDay if xpos was being unfaithful back then and she was trying to warn me. Guess I'll never know.

There are lots of psychics. If you do plan to go, ask around first to see what others have experienced.

I love psychics! I've been numerous times, although I do it for the entertainment factor more than anything else. Some have been spot on with some things, others have been terrible. I would never make any major life decisions based on what a psychic told me.

I will tell one good story, though. I had a friend who always claimed to be a little psychic. At the time, I was married to a soldier and we knew a posting was coming up. She told me she thought we'd move to a colder climate. I kinda rolled my eyes. We live in Canada. Most of the country is cold. Anyway, 6 months later we got our orders. To Winnipeg. A city nicknamed Winterpeg, where it routinely reached -50C and stays there for weeks. One point for her.

After we moved there, I was concerned about jobs. I'm a teacher and jobs can be hard to come by. I had gotten a job from April through June, covering a maternity leave. I mentioned to this friend that I was concerned about the following year. She said that I would be in a room with coloured maps on the back wall. At the time, there was a map of Quebec painted on the wall at the back of the room. I wondered if that meant I would be hired to finish out the May leave in September. I wasn't, so I figured my friend was wrong.

That summer, she told me not to worry. I'd be in Room 214 and there would be coloured maps on the back wall. She was insistent, but I blew her off. I didn't have a job in September, so I subbed. She kept asking me about room 214 and coloured maps at all the different schools I was at. There was nothing.

In November, I was hired to cover another mat leave, this time through the end of the year. In room 4, with no maps at all. I was happy there and in February, that district offered me permanency. I was told that the following year, I would be at the same school, but in a different room. My friend begged me to find the room with the coloured maps. I look in every room in the building. No maps, and no Room 214.

Then I got the bad news that I wouldn't be staying at that school. I'd be going to the high school around the corner. One day after school, I went over to get information and the two vice principals offered to give me a tour. They were going to start with the room I'd be in. As we were walking to the stairs, one said "you'll be in a Room 214" and I stopped dead in my tracks, to the point where they asked if I was ok. I nodded and we kept going. We got to the room and my stomach was doing flip flops as they unlocked the door. The teacher who had been in there previously was a social studies teacher and all along the back wall were coloured maps.

It ended up being my favourite job and when I left to move closer to home I cried and cried.

So, do I believe in psychic ability? Yep. BUT...it's too hard to determine who has it and who is trying to fleece you out of money. I say go, with the knowledge that it's probably not true, and then if it does, what an interesting story it will make.

I reconnected with a childhood friend of my sister's several years ago. She's an astrologer, psychic and medium, and had been since childhood, but we never knew because she was raised Catholic, and evidently it's forbidden.

I'm a 'wanna be' believer--healthily skeptical. In exchange for a recipe that we made years ago, and she loved, she did my astrology chart, forcasting four years into the future. It was unbelievably correct. Some of it could be considered self-fulfilling prophesy, but most was correct and exact to the dates she gave.

I have some psychic ability, but I've never learned to control it. I'm an intuitive; I can read people very well. I need to learn to listen to this inner voice

Did it change anything in my life? No, but it was fun to see things unfold.

I saw a psychic a few years ago. It didn't have anything to do with what brought me to SI. She didn't tell me anything I didn't know about myself. However, I was amazed by what she did know about me. For example, she knew I had been looking into earning a doctorate degree. I hadn't told anyone that.

I did a solo trip to New York City for my birthday a few years ago. A psychic handed me an advertisement flyer as I was walking through Times Square on my way to see Rock of Ages. I thanked her as I took the paper and she asked if I was certain I didn't want a reading. After I said no again she countered with, "Happy birthday, my dear. Enjoy your show." I hadn't told anyone in the city it was birthday. The show was a last minute decision and I was hoping there were still seats left.
Looking back, I wish I would have had a reading just to see what she would have said.

I've been to psychics before. I believe in them, but I'm also a bit skeptical. They really have to prove themselves. They can be fun though.

In 2000 my husband and I married. The April before we decided we wanted to go to Scotland for honeymoon. We had just decided this and didn't tell anyone. We had made an appointment to go and during my reading she stops and looks at me with a strange look and says "You're going to Scotland on your honeymoon." There's no way she could've have known that.

Prior to that in 1997/98 we decide to move to FL. My husband (then boyfriend) wanted to be a cop and he knew it would be faster for him to do it in FL than in our state. Again, we made an appointment. Again, she stopped, looked at me and said "You're moving to FL, but you won't like it." Boy was she right! Those yrs in FL were the toughest and I did not like it at all.

If you want to go, find recommendations first. You don't want to waste money. Maybe see if there's an event that hosts group readings. There's a restaurant in my town that has dinners with a medium and she does a group reading after. That might be something to start off with, plus you'll get a feel for the person and other recommendations. Some can be costly.

Be careful who you choose.

I had my palm read about 6 months before DDay and wrote down what she said.

I pulled it out about 2 months after DDay, having completely forgotten about it and remembered.

She not only predicted the affair, but several other details. I have been meaning to go back and get another reading.

Hey Jrazz, let us know how it goes

Still very hesitant about doing it myself, but I would love to hear your stories

If an opportunity comes (like maybe meeting one on the streets and he/she starts telling me stuff) then I might take it.

"You're moving to FL, but you won't like it." Boy was she right!

You don't think that maybe this because a "self-fulfilling prophecy"?

She planted the suggestion in your head that you wouldn't like something... and so, you didn't.

I've never had a reading done personally but I think it would be neat.

I did see Sylvia Browne give a lecture one time and she did random readings for people in the audience. I wasn't picked. My Dad was with me... he wasn't picked either. He really was hoping that he'd be picked.

No.

I wouldn't take issue with people who like to visit them. It's just not something that I have any interest in doing, because I don't believe that they have any supernatural powers. (I'm sure that successful psychics have a lot of psychological insight, though.)

I'm actually quite surprised to be the eleventh poster to this thread, yet apparently the first person who is a total sceptic.

Jrc, I understand that thought, I've wondered the same thing. Unfortunately, it wasn't a case of just being homesick as to why I didn't like it. It was all due to the struggles that we went through.

I went to one at the urging of a friend, and he was awesome. told me about the cheating and with whom, even that x liked to be called by his full name, not the shortened one, and beware of signing paperwork, I was being ripped off. I was getting divorced, and had gotten the paperwork and had just glanced at it since we had agreed on everything and signed. I re-read it and it said if I was late on the mortgage three months the house reverted to him and all the equity as well ( over 100,000 dollars). Got that changed fast, thank God for the psychic! I had never believed in them before. Another friend poo-poo'd the idea, saying the psychic just googled me, so we did a test. I called and set up an appointment with him for her, lied about her name and paid cash for the appt. She came out of the reading room with eyes the size of saucers...he had told her things no one else knew, and no way he could have run her credit card or googled her. Her boyfriend died last year, and she has seen him three times since and she has been able to get messages from her boyfriend through the psychic. I think he def has a talent, he can see the past and present very clearly. The future he's not so good at, but he's only in his twenties and maybe just needs more experience. He sure made me believe!

I do not do psychic readings (I am not a psychic), but I do read tarot cards. I have done hundreds of readings with excellent feedback. I have to admit, I am skeptical of most psychics, palm readers, and tarot readers. I have had one good psychic reading and NO good palm readings. I will only have one friend of mine read my tarot (he is amazing - he will only have me read his cards). So, I have had some astounding card readings and I have chosen to ignore some astounding personal readings because I didn't want to hear it. (The cards told me things about my marriage before the wedding and I really, really should have listended.) Live and learn.

I went to a palm reader at an Italian festival back when I was in college. The only thing I can remember is that she told me I would own my own business someday. It was so far off my radar that I discounted everything else she said. Still not really on my radar, but it doesn’t seem as ridiculous, and rote, of a notion as it did at the time.

On Saturday I had a session with a medium at Lily Dale Assembly.

It was amazing.

She knew things that she couldn't have known.

And I felt my Nana's presence.

I'm a believer but I think it is rare when a person finds a real psychic. I've been a couple times and was really not too impressed with either, but I will say that the second one blew me away when she asked, "Why did you stop listening to music? You need to start that up again." I had not been listening to music because a relationship that I was sure would end up in marriage had ended some years prior and I was still devastated. It seemed that every time I turned the radio on it was some song that would trigger me badly about him, so I just completely stopped.

Not purposely.

When I was 14 I was ditching school with my then boyfriend (who would turn out to be a violent monster who abused me for the next 4 years) when an older truck pulled into a gravel lot and waved us over. It was an older Native man, who asked to read my palm and told my boyfriend to go around the back of the truck.

He held my hand and told me about how something would happen in 4 years to make me lose my faith in humanity, but how I mustn't allow it to break me (something to that effect). He gave me his business card and told me to call if I ever needed someone. Then he took off.

4 years later, on our 4 year anniversary, my boyfriend beat me to a pulp in the icy mountains of Colorado where we lived (with one another, we'd been living together for years). The cops had to take pictures of my bashed in face, and he was arrested (for the first time ever). I took off back north and reunited with my estranged family.

I can only imagine this was the event the old man had foretold.

I absolutely, positively, will not. The fact that I am an absolute skeptic is not the reason either.

My brother visited one some 30 years ago, and she proceeded to tell him that if he stayed doing what he was doing (nothing bad, relates to career choice) he was going to die. It shook him up; to his very core. He left what he was doing, relocated to another state, and died in a tragic accident within a year...

So yeah, won't go near one with a ten foot pole...

OK, mandatory skeptic lame party pooper here:

Psychics are very talented. But this means really that they are experts at doing very non-supernatural things:

* "Cold readings," where they throw out a bunch of suggestions and are very sensitive to your body language and tone of voice to know if they're getting to something true about you. They can then use that as a bridge to speculate about the future, which of course you can't disprove.

* Vagueness that sounds specific. Kind of like horoscopes, statements that sound like they really know you but apply to just about everyone.

* Fraud: using plants or shills in an audience or figuring out how to research the subject beforehand to know things they "couldn't possibly know." If you are a repeat customer it's very easy.

Anyway, have fun with your readings but don't be defrauded.

I'm sure there are those who employ those techniques. I have had really bad readings as well. Where I have ended the session, and refused payment.

My recent experience was not fake or fraudulent in any way.

I had never met the woman, she had no idea who I was, and could not have researched me. I didn't even give her my full name (I have a very long last name, that most of my family shortens--I go by the long name, but I gave the shortend version). And she knew that. She said "You don't go by this name, your name is much longer."

She also repeated to me, word for word a conversation I had with my mother, on the phone, in my home before I left for this appt.

I know there are fakes out there, looking to scam people, but I do not believe I was scammed at all. She knew things. She told me private things I said to my Nana before she passed. She told me that my Nana heard me talking to her about my fertility woes, and about my getting married woes. And I did...the night before my appointment.

I feel lucky that I got to meet with someone who was genuine.

My sister went to see a medium today. She just texted me a moment ago. My grandmother wanted me to know she loved the eulogy I gave at her funeral. It was last month. The medium doesn't know me, or my sister, or that my grandma died, and there is no record anywhere that I gave the eulogy.

I don't know. Maybe I just want to believe it. And that's ok too.

With regard to September 11, 2001, there are some who say that Nostradamus predicted the catastrophe in the early 1500s. There are people who had weird feelings who didn't go to work in the towers that day.

I don't believe in coincidences.

Just once. A old friend of mine did it, she predicted the month I would fall pregnant and the due date of my second child, she was right. She also said the baby would be overdue but not by much, he was born two days late. Even I didn't know that stuff because I wasn't pregnant at the time I saw her!

She also said there would be some bad feeling surrounding the pregnancy but not to worry, it would work itself out. My husband was devastated that we were having a second son, he wanted a girl, but once the baby arrived he was smitten!

I'd love to see another one but there aren't any around where I live.

I have just one question about psychics.

What were they doing on September 10, 2001?

Bingo! I have wondered that about 9/11 and other events throughout history. Why weren't they completely predicted? Maybe they can't always get that stuff right. I won't go to one. My high school friend did and she has a long life line in her and was going to do this and that. She died six months after we graduated high school. I've also known people that were completely predicted correctly to a tee, but don't want to take the chance of finding out wrong or of knowing something I can't change. To each their own, though. I do find it interesting.

I've seen a few for fun. Early in our relationship, I went to one at a Psychic Fair and my husband was with me walking around. The psychic was adamant, to the point that she shut off the tape recording, so that he wouldn't listen to it and told me that he wasn't the one for me. That it wasn't going to work out. I didn't take note of it because everyone who knew him said how great he was. He was quite upset about it and it bothered him for a long time. Knowing what I came to learn about him, I think I should have listened to her more at that time.

I went to another one during the time that can't be mentioned in this section of SI. She explained what was going on in his head very well. So much so that when his head had cleared and he listened to the reading, my always skeptical husband who belittled the thought of psychics, went to see her himself. She told him things about my health and my emotional state at that time that were accurate too. He was impressed. She was very good, but more of a codependent psychic because she'd give you more information about your partner than about yourself.

I went about 8 years ago when I was first starting my plumbing apprentice. The physic told me that I would be wearing a white hard hat. In my province all plumbers were blue hard hats. In the years following I have moved, changed hard hat colours a few times depending on the company I worked for and about six months ago I got promoted to a white hat which is the boss colour in my current company. If the power of suggestion helped make that happen then right on! I would go again for sure.

Wrt to 9/11...I don't think psychics necessarily have globally predictive abilities. I know with myself, I often "know" things about strangers, but not until I meet them. For example, I started with a new IC last week. Never met her, didn't know anything about her (except her creds.....I found her on the internet, just picked her out of a bunch of listings). I literally only knew her name, office address, and that she is an LPC. When I walked into her office, I blurted out, "How was North Carolina?" She was flabbergasted. She had just returned from a week's vacation there.

I don't do "readings" or tarot or anything else. But for some reason I often know things about people I shouldn't know. So I believe there are people that are "psychic". And I also believe there are frauds. Like others have said, if someone is charging you, take it as entertainment. Because you never know.

Since this is OT and not F&G I will say there is no such thing, definitively. I will not say that about God, or any religious entity, and if anyone wants that particular discussion it's a PM because I don't want to break rules, but psychics are, every single one, not psychic.

In fact I would cheerfully sue any that tried to give me psychic advice without the "For entertainment purposes only" in small print because anyone who sells that service as anything but entertainment is, IMO, an awful person for taking advantage of people who are looking for help and hope.

I feel confident in saying there is no such thing because I am happy to take up any challenge otherwise. I won't even take a cut of the millions of dollars available for anyone who can prove those powers.

Please do not look to charlatans. If you are religious and find comfort in your faith, just cleave to that.

I would take umbrage with that statement. Lots of religious charlatans out there. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

I thought I would share my experience too.

When I was 22 I went to a psychic who had a good reputation for being accurate.
She deals a regular deck of cards for the reading.

Anyway, she told me that my mother was having an affair with a man who lived overseas in another country.
That 2 families within our family would break up because of this affair.
That my parents were going to get a divorce.

Everything she said happened!

1 week later I found out that my mother was having an affair with her sister's husband who lived overseas.
Both my parents and my aunt & uncle got divorces.

That is pretty accurate !!

I may or may not agree with you. It's also possible that is the first time I have seen the phrase "I would take umbrage with that statement" used not only without irony, but effectively in an unscripted discussion between real people. So, win all around.

My friend predicted many things about my pregnancy, too! She was the one who told me to take the test, that she thought or "dreamed" I may be pregnant (I was, I about died).

She predicted it would be a girl, and was 1 oz wrong on weight (albs, 12ozs of baby). When we told her our future DDs name, she said "She is going to have red hair." I said "No, noe one in FWH's family or mine has red hair, we don't have the genes for it."

Fwh then said "Actually, my grandmother had red hair before it went white…"

Our DD has red hair.

I've thought about it for sometime. I'm a Christian so I think I will stay away from it for now. I just don't want to hear something have no control over. It's true that they do have some powers and abilities. But I'm not ready to start on a path I cannot understand. I however, have nothing against those who consult with them.

Yes! I have been a few times over the years. The last visit to one that came highly recommended was April 2009--totally for fun during a girl's weekend. She asked me where all the fun had gone in my life. She told me that I feel crazy but it's not me it's someone around me causing me to feel crazy. She then told me in six weeks that a cat would make itself known to me...a cat with blue eyes that wanted to do me harm and would if it got the chance--she told me to protect myself and watch for it. My friend that went with me told me she thought the physic was speaking perhaps of another woman...I scoffed at that told her NO WAY that would ever be happening. I didn't mention to anyone how sad and lonely I had been over the last year and how crazy I felt, even just those words the psychic used gave me the chills. Sooo, six weeks to the day the psychic said to start watching for the "cat", was my d-day and I really do believe the "cat" she was referring to was indeed the OW (with blue eyes I might add). I know it sounds hokey but I think there are people that really do tune into the world via a deeper level and can pick up things about people and events that have or will happen. Haven't been back to one since, but I would go again for sure. Now, the people that actually change their life according to what a psychic says that's a little extreme for me.
