Anyone ever had a palm reading or other "psychic" stuff??
Posted 20 April 2009 - 02:32 PM
I'm really so not a believer in that kind of stuff but we were on the boardwalk down the shore this weekend and my best friend wanted to get a palm reading. The place was super weird looking and come on real psychic powers working on the NJ shore boardwalk??
So we wait forever (apparently this lady cared more about her phone call than some actual customers) and she goes in. She comes out and starts telling me about it and it was so weird because everything she said was like spot on for her in her life and she commented on the things most prevalent in her life right now. I'm half laughing and half intrigued at this point. So I said hey what's $10 let me get one too. I even teased her and said I'll laugh if she tells me the exact same thing!
Well, mine was totally different and exactly right too!! It was sooo weird! Among other things she told me that
- I have too many people leaning on me.
- My family is central and are bringing frustration and depression into my life (lots of family drama lately but that's a whole other thread).
- She said that I have to learn to say no and accept that I'm not responsible for the world.
- I am already with the one I will marry.. but will have some times that I feel we are miles apart.. but she says that shouldnt take that as a sign that we should seperate.
- I will be an excellent mother.
- And I will only be in the field I'm currently in for 2-3 more years because it is too cold for me and is beating me up emotionally. (WEIRD I work in finance.. hedge funds). (also ironic is that 2-3 is when I'm projected to finish paying off a large amount of debt I have currently).
- She said she sees me in nursing or psychology (i've been talking about going to nursing school!)
Soo overall, I'm still not a total believer and I think we kind of meld things to make sense and relate in our heads for our own amusment. BUT it made me laugh and I was curious to see if anyone else had any similar experiences or can share your views thoughts on theses types of things! Have you done it? What did they say? Did any of it come true? Any funny stories?? Do share!

Now, there are oodles of shady and untalented people in the business too, so I'd caution everyone to beware of scam artists and not work with anyone who doesn't come personally recommended. (of course if it's $5-$10 at the beach for fun that's okay because if they are wrong so what, you had fun..but anything more be careful)

We really just did it for fun but I have to admit her accuracy was pretty scary. I never expected it to be so right and so specific!

What blushingbride said is important, people should not base their whole lives on it. In fact the lady I use won't do readings any more than 2x a year for her clients because she doesn't want you to feel like you need her info to live (otherwise I would call her everytime I lost my keys or something haha). But that's another way to tell someone who just wants your money from someone genuine
Let us know how your predictions turn out!

It'ds interesting to see if any of your predictions will come true.
Agreed with you girls though that I'm sure some people would get carried away.. and base their whole life on it.
I'm getting even more intrigued..... trouble trouble!

Not saying that all of them are like that, probably there are some genuine ones in there ; but most of the time this is what I experienced.
These persons are really good at "reading" people : from your looks, your facial and body attitude and micro-expressions, your language. They will "test" you by saying things and see how you react to it, if they see they are in the right way they will go on.
Then once they have impressed you with those skills - most of them can be learnt... if you know the sow "lie to me" it's a good example - they throw a few "predictions" at you that people here could have told you. Sorry but - you're with the one you will marry (nice, she saw your ring) ; you will be miles away sometimes but that does not mean you should separate (yeah... like every marriage) ; you will be a good mother (something you want to hear).
From all the "predictions" I received only the obvious ones happened : that I would change jobs for instance (everybody changes jobs). The rest of it was B*S. But it was fun !! Sometimes a rip off, but always fun !

You totally summed up my apprehensions! I was so torn between thinking was B.S., thinking it was funny, and thinking hmm it was kind of weird and wanting more.
It's great to hear and compare everyones thoughts/opinons/experiences so thanks for sharing and your honesty girls!!
