Do psychics and fortune tellers have a hard time doing readings for others with similar talents?

I just came back from a psychic reading- one of my friends had a psychic over to her house for a day of readings. Everyone else had a real spine-tingling spooky "how did she know that?" experience. But for me, it was a let down. She didn't pick up on anything very profound, and certainly nothing she couldn't have deduced in very ordinary ways.

I've read tarot for many years, and while I do not do it professionally, I have been told by many, many people over the years that I have the "gift."

Of course, it's hard to do any readings for yourself.

Over the years, from time to time I've paid the fee for a psychic reading. Only once has the result been impressive- and that time was stunningly accurate ! For years now I've been trying to find someone who could read like that woman did. But it just never happens.

I don't go into these sessions with a critical attitude, and I'm certainly not a non-believer. Everyone has their own method for reading cards or channelling messages, and I'm in no way snobbish as far as believing my method is better than someone else's. The one psychic who did read me well had a system that was nothing at all like mine. I go into sessions with a good attitude and open mind and spirit.

No psychic I've ever been to had any idea that I do tarot readings myself.

I've never actually done a reading for anyone who is a reader themselves. Is there some reason that psychics have trouble reading other psychics ?

I'm not a FIRM believer in the power of 'psychic', but sometimes i'm proven wrong through my own 'abilities'.
That said, I would think that perhaps it's because you out 'power' her,
meaning you would be able to 'read' her but not the other way around due to your 'power' being overbearing.

If anything.

I'm not sure, but I do know they have psychic battles!

I think psychic abilities and using them are supposed to be "permission-based".

If you are a psychic, you have the awareness to raise your blockers and boundaries against Psychic vampires, and aren't aware of the prying going on-whether real, or imagined.

One may not subconsciously want to be read, while pursuing a reading...

I've never seen any good evidence for the existence of psychic powers.. and I've seen many professional psychics get busted lying or using tricks .. such as ear pieces having information fed to them by a third party ..

There was a post on ATS recently that told the story of a man who was listed as one of the top 10 psychics in the world or something like that and he came out with a book basically admitting he was a fake .. he said all psychics are fake.. I wish I could find that post.

James Randi has busted so many psychics in his time.. one of my favorite examples is when Uri Geller got exposed on the Johnny Carson show ... ( Uri also got busted with a hidden camera at a restaurant once.. that was funny too )

But here's the video where Uri got exposed ... and Uri is considered, or was at one time... to be one of the best on the planet..

Any psychic that is able to prove they are psychic have a one million dollar check waiting for them.. and in all these years.. not one person has been able to ..

Interesting ideas, thank you all ! (That video was funny, too- thanks!)

The energy conflict and subconscious blocking could explain a lot. Perhaps I'm just not on the right sort of wavelength as many others and it creates a communication block. And, maybe, the first reply was on to something in that perhaps I was sort of reading her while she was trying to read me.

Very frustrating though- I have some issues I really want a good psychic reading on.

Has anyone else experienced this ? It must be fairly common.

But- will you?

You've never felt a friends' presence in the same room with you? Does his presence leave with him? How do you know?

You are psychic, where's my check?

Any person with the "gift" as you said is able to feel others energy in a way that would tell them that they too have the "gift".

Alas, i've never dealt with the north american side of this sort of stuff and I've come to realize, through reading lots of experiences here on ATS, things are very different from my small european country perspective. I'm not sure if it's a cultural thing or not but it's a pretty different approach across the pond.

With that said, a "proper" psychic should be able to read for other psychics, in my understand, unless you're blocked off or are blocking yourself any kind of reading.

What are psychic senses?

However, what many people are unaware of, is that every person has an innate psychic side within, but these hidden talents are yet to be discovered.


Reasoning and understanding are two 'senses' we all have, but have not been educated about; because it's extra sensory perception, IMHO.

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.

It's because they are cold readers. People can be very intuitive. Most of our communication is non-verbal. Some things are going to be spot on and some aren't. We tend to focus on the right and forget all that was wrong. That said, John Edwards claimed he was told by psychic that he was psychic.
