Can a real psychic be tricked? What happens if I make something up, and ask a psychic medium for advice? What will they say?
There are a lot of people out there that are skeptical about psychic readings, or that anyone has any sort of gift at all. The truth is, even people like ourselves (who run a bunch of different active and popular psychic communities, including the famous psychic medium directory, as well as content and courses on intuitive development) understand that MANY psychics, mediums and spiritual “teachers” may mean well, but that doesn’t really mean they’ve got a genuine and reliable gift. (many have MOMENTS of inspiration, but aren’t gifted in a reliable way that makes their readings worth seeking out)
Here is an example of what happens when an investigative reporter (from VICE) goes out seeking psychic readings to find out what happened to her sister, who died many years earlier, AFTER she died. The problem? There was no sister in real life. Instead, she made up the story, and yet…..the “mediums” told her many details about a person who never existed, anyway 🙂
Check out the full story at the link below – and then tell us what YOU think that proves – or doesn’t – about the reality of good mediums and the truth (or not) about life after death.
The questions floated around in my head for awhile, but it wasn’t until last Sunday that I decided to act on them. Inspired by Houdini, I made up a basic pass/fail test that I could apply a few times to see if someone was actually in tune with all the truths in the universe: If I made up a dead sister and asked a bunch of psychics to connect with her, how many wouldn’t be able to tell I was full of shit?
I don’t have a sister and am the oldest child in the family, so I figured inventing a big sister would keep any interfering energies or whatever it is psychics pick up on out of the picture. And so, I created “Emily”—her birthday was Jan. 31, 1990, she died in a car crash on June 2, 2014, and her boyfriend, who was driving the car, died with her.
