psychic mediums

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Do you think that there are any real psychics or mediums that aren’t just pulling people’s legs?

I watched a Penn & Teller Bullsh*t episode called talking to the dead, and it was about how psychics and mediums trick people into thinking that they’re really speaking with the dead. I would hope that not everyone is out to bs people. Do you think there are actually people out there who have this ability? I do not doubt that there are ghosts at all, I think I will believe that until the day I die, but do you think there is really a way to contact them?

Psychics do not exist.

Answer by johnny.zondo
i think people WANT to believe in psychics, that includes the individuals themselves who claim to be said psychic.

do they exist? no, or James Randi (i think its him) would be a million bucks poorer!

Answer by Mother In the Lab
If you have to pay for a psychic, than you are are most likely being scamed. A real psychic never asks for money in return for their help. They will help you for free. People are gifted with spiritual gifts for a reason. They are not given randomly, God gives them to you.

Answer by Wicked Warrior
Yes, and they are very few and very far between. If I could communicate with the dead, I would never tell anyone.

Answer by JackPopo
Since I do not believe in Souls I do not believe in mediums.

Answer by Fritha Grey
True mediums are rare but real. Unfortunately there are also a lot of people out there willing to do just about anything to make a fast buck and even more people desperate enough to pay them for the hopes and the dreams they manufacture.

You’re entitled to your own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts. There is no such thing as a “psychic”, and there are no such things as ghosts.

Having said that, I don’t think that all psychics are out to trick people– I think that some are, while others are simply self-deluded.

Answer by Kathleen
there are people out there that can communicate with the dead, but their not communicating with anyone that’s sleeping in Christ. The spirits their communicating with are of Satan, minions, posing as the loved ones a person is seeking to communicate with. And the Bible makes Gods feelings on the matter very clear.

Leviticus 19:31
‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.’

Leviticus 20:27
“Men and women among you who act as mediums or psychics must be put to death by stoning. They are guilty of a capital offense.”

Deuteronomy 18:10-13
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How to become a psychic medium ?

I am highly positive I was not born with the gifts of being psychic, but I want to become a medium. I want to be able to talk and see spirits and spirit guides. Does anyone know how I can do this ?

Answer by Caleb
….in case you didn’t know, psychics are fake and make stuff up for cash.

Answer by Pete 353
Start with astral projection and energy manipulation. Thats how i started.

Answer by Dan T
The only way i can think of is by practice. You have to ‘listen’ to the right things… maybe talk to an actual psychic or medium about it? I know that being a psychic is predominantly a female talent, no idea as to why.

Also be careful what you wish for… you have to take the bad with the good

It’s a good a place to start as any. All psychics and mediums learn the art of cold reading at some stage. Unfortunately, it won’t really allow you to talk to spirits. But at least you’ll be able to pretend that you can.

Most Spiritualist Churches give classes in this. Check if one is near you to see if you can join their classes. There is a really good one in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Written by HEYOKA

The Heyókȟa symbolize and portray many aspects of the sacred, the Wakȟáŋ. Their satire presents important questions by fooling around. They ask difficult questions, and say things others are too afraid to say. By reading between the lines, the audience is able to think about things not usually thought about, or to look at things in a different way.

Principally, the Heyókȟa functions both as a mirror and a teacher, using extreme behaviors to mirror others, thereby forcing them to examine their own doubts, fears, hatreds, and weaknesses. Heyókȟas also have the power to heal emotional pain; such power comes from the experience of shame—they sing of shameful events in their lives, beg for food, and live as clowns. They provoke laughter in distressing situations of despair and provoke fear and chaos when people feel complacent and overly secure, to keep them from taking themselves too seriously or believing they are more powerful than they are.
