Ive always heard that if you have a pack of tarot cards and a ouiji board and maybe a crytal ball you can get a glimise into the future is this true or were these items just invented as a novelty? If you like you can include past accounts of these tool working because im just a bit Skeptical.

i think most people who waw in the future (like Edgar cacy or Nostradamus) went into a trance or deep sleep then they said what they saw while they were sleeping while family members wrote it down but when they woke up they remembered nothing they said
[i am not sure if i spelled all the names right]

I have given readings privately and professionally, on and off, since the late 1970s. Initially I started out with the the Tarot and years later developed into becoming a spiritual medium. I have taught others how to use the Tarot effectively and have also used the Ouija Board.

Do predicting tools really work?

Yes and no.

Think of the Tarot and the Ouija/Spirit Board as mystical computers. Garbage in results in garbage out.

If you go about it in the right way, a conscientious way, you can get some insightful answers.

If you go about it as a party trick, insincerely, then you will not get much help at all.

It is also important to avoid general inquiries and ask specific questions. Inquiries that involve a decision are the best ones.

For example, a bad question would be, "What will happen to me in the next six months?"

While a good question would be, "What will happen if I pursue this person in a long-term relationship?"


"What would happen if I pursue a certain vocation or certain job that I applied for?"

Although the Tarot and the Spirit/Ouija Board are physical objects, insightful answers do not come from them. Nor do they come from the "subconscious mind." In my experience as a spiritual medium, there is no "subconscious mind." Sigmund Freud used that term to explain that which he couldn't explain otherwise.

When one goes to sleep at night, one part of the brain does not "turn on" to create dreams. What really happens is that one becomes more receptive to telepathic messages from people in the Spirit that are usually presented symbolically. I've had situations whereby I would have a dream with one or more of my Guides and then wake up and continue the conversation.

Most dreams are not spiritual or helpful because most people on the Other Side, as with This Side, are not devoted to The Light.

So one can skip using props completely. Simply write down a question and sincerely pray for an answer to be given in your sleep. Then take note of all dreams that occur, even the ones that you don't think address the question. Oftentimes, when one analyzes the symbolism behind a wacky dream that doesn't seem to make any sense, an insightful message is cleverly given.

Again, if you go about this with insincerity or hostility, you will muck up the process of getting good answers. Project gratitude for whatever messages you receive. Better still: project gratitude when you ask the question

This ingratiates people on the Other Side to provide you with higher awareness.

My Guides have successfully predicted the outcome of the last two US presidential elections. They have also provided insight as to the fate of the body of American labor leader, Jimmy Hoffa. That awareness was confirmed by the person who edited the biography of the man who shot and killed Jimmy Hoffa.

Not all readings are vague. It depends on what you are trying to learn about. Direct questions stated with gratitude and sincerity lead to direct insightful answers.

Yes they work.
The tarot by itself is just pictures on paper. The prediction itself comes from the people, the tarot is just a "translator".
I would like to ad that I am firmly convinced that the future cannot be changed. Tarot readers telling you that if you do this or that you can change your fate, I wouldn't buy it. readers like me prefer an interpreting and advising role.

Of course the future can be changed

Some events are more probable than others, but there can always be some influence on changing them, if not completely, then partially.

I would like to cite the true story about the man who kept having re-occurring nightmares about him and his family drowning in icy waters. After this went on for several days, he felt that he had had enough. He went down to the agency where he purchased his vacation tickets and canceled the family trip on the ill-fated maiden voyage of the TITANIC.

Here is a classic example of someone who knew about a probable event. From his actions, he changed that future for him and his family.

Some events are possible and some are probable. We cannot change everything but we can change some things, at least with the power we have within our particular sphere of influence.

Unless of course it was his future to never get on the Titanic and the dreams were the way make sure the future wasn't changed..

i can't verify the Tarot cards nor the OuiJi board device,
i am familiar with scrying in mirrors, bowls of water, smoke, and other mediums
but a crystal ball thingy is way too dangerous for me to try and use...
because just having one across the table or room draws me into it...

If I would journey into a crystal ball with intensity and purpose -
i might find myself more deeply tranced than i trust myself to go,
and might possibly never get back out of that gateway to other realities.

i've never resolved if these aids have properties (probably not)
or these devices are learned and familiar objects which allow one's
Alpha state to overwhelm one's brain and your accellerated brain
activity (like going into a SuperComputer mode)
conjures many of the obscure data you heard or seen in the news
and connects those 'dots' into future life-path or world-event scenarios,

we all 'Project" into the future to some degree, each time we choose an
action and anticipate that rewarding result...i think that these devices
are springboards for our intellect & imagination & connecting-the-dots
to reveal the likely patterns of the future

A fatalist.

Then I would venture to say that one should strive to know the future and to change whatever one can to fulfill one's destiny.

There is no such thing as a certain future, all there is, is infinite and possibilities.

So each time you predict something you just show a possibility out of an infinite possibility. Of course if I predict that I will go to the bathroom in the next 3 hours I might be pretty much right. That is a prediction, a very probable one. Still it is not set in stone.

What would be more interesting is to know what prediction has a higher % of happening. That would be more useful than actually predicting something.

So looking at our current world you could predict many things, with different % of happening. The problem we face is that some variables come and go and these ones can change everything. So you see, the system is too complex for our simple mind.

We might predict the future in the year 3000 and be good at it. But right now, future prediction is like magic to us. But honestly, do we really need to know the future?

Knowing every possibility would make us God. But, we will still be unable to be sure. Because free will can make a 1% possibility happen instead of the 99% one. So you see, if you are God and in your Universe, there is free will, even you will be interested to see how things will evolve.

Lets say predicting the future could one day become like the weather forecast of today. That would be really interesting.
