Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Has anyone ever had a psychic reading?

Just curious if anybody has had a psychic reading and if it was accurate or true?? Please only respond if you have had one or know someone that has!

Answer by Brent Y
I know lots of people that have – but there are no real psychics. Self-described “psychics” are actually doing “cold reading” – google it.

Answer by Al N
Sure I’ve had one, it was your basic cold reading aka “A scam”. Anyone who claims to be psychic is a fraud.

A “psychic” read my palm once. He said I would be very successful and have 3 kids. Ha ha. I work in a warehouse and have no interest in ever having kids. My friend made me do it and I wasted 20 bucks.

Yes, I had a reading years ago, it was computerized and took 2 hours, it was fun actually. She told me what I was presently doing, what my interests were at that time and she was right. She told me my rising sign and what my purpose in Life was, basically speaking.

She wasn’t a psychic but only did your astrological chart. She told me some things that I won’t share here because it would sound like boasting, and I don’t want to do that.

You may want to visit James Van Prague’s web site. He is a genuine psychic medium, there are a few others as well, there are also fakes of course. I’m not a psychic, but I have had several message dreams in my life that came true, future events. Many people are psychic to a certain degree. I find it very fascinating. 🙂

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What’s the Catholic view on fortune-telling/psychics?

I have a co-worker who is a devout Catholic, but hosts psychic reading parties a couple of times a year (she brings a professional psychic in from out of town). What would the Church’s view on this be?

Thanks in advance.

Let me ask the Pope. Pope, what do you think? “I think it’s fine.” Okay then.

Answer by Lefty
I will tell you that Italian Catholic beliefs coincide. The psychic is usually always a Catholic too. If not, the psychic plays into Catholicism, as they would their psychic ability. The Church, the big church, with the Pope inside, would admonish it. Money could go to the Church instead, and even if the psychic is not anti-Catholic, they certainly would be called a charlatan.

…the Pope doesn’t like it when people use supernatural beliefs to make money for profit…except his own.

Hello,

If you go and get a reading just for fun or a lark at a fair or charity event but don’t take it seriously, there is not a big problem. If you do it however like your friend, it could be sinful as the Catholic church like the other Christian denominations condemn it saying you are putting your faith and belief into these people instead of God.

Cheers,

FREE PSYCHIC READING WITH SIRIAN TAROT DECK

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.
