Umm, maybe real psychics can. My brother that practices Wicca took me, a Christian, to visit a friend of his who just happens to read Tarot cards. He
paid her to read me and I was skeptical to begin with. My brother told me not to tell her that he did not come from our home, that he was born in
Essex England and we have different mothers. The truth is, he is ashamed of the poverty and dysfunction of our childhood and created a persona to
present to people.
Well, as skeptical as I am anyway she proceeds. First she does the astrological chart. I kept asking her to explain to me what she was saying but did
not, so I said I would go research it on the internet when I get home. Then she does the Tarot and pulls a card out and says it is the best card in
the deck, I asked why it was and she did not tell me why but told me to put my hand on it because it will get warm. It only stuck to my hand because
the waxy top of the coffee table was drawing in humidity from the summer day.
All the information she knew from me came because she kept asking me questions that were easily answered and to which I had to purposely feed her,
because I knew she did not have a clue about me. In fact, many things I had to suggest to her to ask.
Was she a real psychic? I do not think so but my brother does and has faith in her. That's why these things work, their prophecies become
self-fulfilling because a hearer remembers something and will do things to cause it to happen. You could say it happens because you made it happen.
That is not prophetic by any means.
A true psychic would have picked up that he made up a persona to begin with and he was not who he said he was. She would have known already that I
knew she was full of boloney.
