The Sight, as my Grandmother called it, is strong in our family. She could be pretty amazing sometimes with some of the things she would tell us.


There's no such thing as "sight". They simply use the power of suggestion to manipulate people.

...and people say that psychics are frauds, shheeessshhh. That no one has ever won the million dollars in the James Randi challenge (basically psychics have to prove themselves in a controlled environment) just goes to show that they live on a higher plane than us - though some physics have taken the challenge and failed ...but that was just to show that they can laugh at themselves. Hah! The jokes on the people that DON'T believe in physics ! (/sarcasm :) )

I don't argue about such things, but I know what I've seen.

^ There are good and bad psychics.

In much the same way there are good and bad car thieves.

Well, tell that to James Randi - maybe you could win his million bucks ;)

its always prudent to treat the so called 'psychic' with suspicion.

There is a guy here in Brisbane who is known across the country as being very good. I was skeptical, so I waited the year to get into see him.

I had a photo, and we said nothing else, apart from how my day was etc. He told me things that not even my partner knows about me.

- How my father was killed
- Where my father was killed. I'm not talking a general area, he told me the exact suburb/township area
- What my father was carrying in his truck when he was killed
- He named my step father with the correct name
- And when I asked who was driving the truck when my father was killed, he responded with what our family had always believed
- Accurately predicted my unseen photo. He told me about the beard my father had in it, the hat I was wearing, and where we were sitting.
- Told me my father had Allan or Elsie there. I didn't know who he was talking about, so I was told to write it down, and ask someone who may know. He said it's Allan or Else, and she died of a stroke. It was my great grandmother.

When my mate's mother went to him:

- Predicted she would have a son with down syndrome - She did
- A few other things I'm not privy to that apparently were spot on the money
- Advised one of her friends that she had to leave as she couldn't be read. When asked, they were told he can't see a future. She died 2 weeks later.
- Was able to tell was was on the photos she had.

Another friend went to him

- Knew that she was currently going through a messy divorce and that her kids were not playing nice and taking the fathers side.
- Knew about the car troubles she was having (her car had major issues and was in my workshop for quoting of over $3000)
- Other info I'm not privy to that she said was correct.
- Was able to say what was on both of her photos exactly.


I was very skeptical. I made sure he didn't harvest me for information, in fact, he didn't even ask me questions except when he already had the answer. Eg. He was asking about my step father, he didn't ask questions first, he said "Who is Murray, the father figure after your dad?".

Where he put the photos was in a tea towel so there were no cameras.

It was under his house, nothing professional about where we were located or anything of that nature. After this reading, I seriously believe that a select few people have the ability to pick up on certain energies. I'm still a skeptic, but there is seriously no way he could have known so much about me.

Sounds to me like he was fishing - if he hadn't he would have by now a million usd bucks! If you can remember the charlata... eeerrr, sorry the physics name ( :) ) then enter his and James Randis name into YouTube.

I once typed in Ester Hicks (from "The Secret") and James Randis name into YouTube, without success, but then Googled them, and there are inconsistencies in her "messages".

Heck, I've been to two mediums - all I remember is that the other one told me quite a few years back that soon I would have a ring on my finger with a gorgeous fiancee and we would have two children and the third one would die in the womb. No girl in sight and no children either.

The second one told me, probably about two years ago, that I would soon be a lecturer in a university in a city in the northern part of my country; well, that hasn't happened and will never happen if I can have anything to say about that (oh ...wait, I can!) because I have no interest in being a lecturer. I clearly remember her saying that she saw the danish flag ...I remember that because I thought "Damn, what ever she is smoking must be good!" because nothing whatsoever related to Denmark was on my mind; but a few months later my brother moved there - I have no idea if he was thinking about that at the time or not, but again; that didn't concern me - and he's back home. But maybe she was smoking pot from Christiania :)

And a reviewer on Amazon ruined the three books "Conversation with God" somewhat for me by pointing out inconsistencies in the books - but never the less, I actually quite enjoy them; which is surprising for a sceptic like me :)

This is actually a pretty boring video, but he shows how a somewhat successful cold reading is done

What is the name of the Psychic? My Wife wants to go see one and Brisbane isn't too far. If I'm going to go through this crap I'd rather go through one that at least seems legit.

I don't believe in this **** though, no human is better than I am :p.

Honestly mate. I didn't believe it before I went. I'm not one to cry, but I was holding back tears. There were things he knew that he simply could not have known or guessed.

Bollox. I'm psychic too.

Check this out.

You have seen a giant plastic pineapple at least once in your life. Am I right? $5 please.

I would like to know what he got wrong about you - though the misses are always harder to recall than the hits.
