No your wrong, i just watched a show and he knew about a women who threw a milk bottle at a man. How would he know that?
Maybe a paid actor was in the audience? Magicians have done that before. You know when they pull a volunteer out of the audience? Those people are not
always complete strangers to the magician... In fact often they are paid assistants....
So that is a big possibility since this guy is on TV.
Cold reading, with a few actors thrown in = "amazing psychic abilities"
Now do not get me wrong, I do believe there are people out there who do have some psychic ability but the majority of the ones you see on TV, if not
all of them use cold reading, and often slip paid actors into their show to fool the audience into believing he is communicating with the other
Sorry to disappoint but I would recommend not watching any of those 'psychic shows" on TV. They are all just in it for the money, and have no
special ability, other than the ability to trick people.
The real psychics Are often not nearly that in tune with the other side and they tend to prefer keeping their abilities to them selves and maybe share
it with some close friends and family....
I am sorry to say, Hadyn_17 is most likely right. There was a "psychic" on Tv here in the US a few years ago that also used Cold reading. He was
named John Edwards.
What these people do is quite mean actually. They manipulate people who have just lost loved ones or who are often still suffering from a loss, and
make them think they are communicating with their dead family.... And they do it all for money... Not for the purpose of helping them to heal or
anything... They are just greedy monsters. The ones you see on TV that is.
