  1. Thanks! Well that certainly narrows it down. Jokes aside, I have been working with that particular person for 2 years and she definitely has abilities, so I believe the info she gives me - but she has never claimed to be a psychic per se.
  2. Thank you very much for your reply. The canoeing was just an example, he actually told me about a different activity I used to do, and that it would be beneficial to take it up again. So I guess that is beneficial information if true. I changed around certain details because I was originally going to post this on a psychic forum and I thought the reader in question might be on there. Thinking about it again, maybe I was a bit hasty in dismissing the instructions given by the first person. I might just need to work out the details more. And yesterday I found a different site that might work instead of the personal columns site, so maybe he was just a little off the mark with the specific details. Sounds like my rational assessment of the second person was correct. Funnily enough she actually shares a name with a much more reputable psychic and I almost wonder if she took that name just to hijack the google traffic. Was just looking for some guidance in getting my business moving and meeting my soulmate. I work with another intuitive healer often and she has fed me various details about my soulmate - has even seen her once* - but she hasn't been able to give me much in the way of practical steps to take. * She has "strawberry blonde-ish" hair so if any single girls reading this match that description, send me a message!
  3. Thank you very much for your thoughts.
  4. Hi friends, Just had some readings this week with 2 alleged psychics. The results were very different from both - anyone with experience with real or fake psychics have any thoughts? The first one was able to give me some specifics, and stated them as plain facts rather than fishing around with questions. e.g. "When you were younger you used to go canoeing, then you stopped doing that"; "you haven't been romantically involved with a woman for some time". He also hit a bullseye with my entire attitude/feeling towards my business and my hopes for it. He slightly miscued once or twice but was able to correct himself with minimal prompting from me. However, he gave me certain instructions which make no sense. e.g. Place an ad requesting a specific thing on an online personals column. I looked and there are no online personals columns anymore in my country. There used to be, but I guess they've all been shut down due to various abuses. The second set of instructions related to growing my business. They sounded good at the time but after the enthusiasm of the call had ended I realized the instructions were impractical, lacking in sufficient detail and unlikely to succeed. No. 2 gave me no practical advice; it was all about growing myself spiritually. I was given some specific spiritual instructions "from my guides" but I mostly forget what they were. She also told me some stuff about how I was highly evolved & had a special mission to carry out (ego-baiting so I keep working with her maybe?) She told me my business would not take off for a certain period of time - conveniently for her a fairly long time - by which time I'll probably have forgotten I ever spoke to her. Things were phrased more hesitantly e.g. "I'm picking up on this, does that make sense..." Some of these were completely wrong. There was also some mediumship where she described some completely strange unfamiliar people to me, who delivered messages of no particular importance or use (pats on the back basically). Without any prompting she did manage to pick up that I had a brother and that I was looking for a relationship, but that's all I can pinpoint that actually implied any true psychic knowledge. I get the feeling if I'd said I was married then she would have shifted it around with "OK, maybe it's a business relationship..." or if I'd had no brother then "OK, maybe it's a cousin..." Also, no. 1 said I had to spiritually invite my soulmate into my life by e.g. setting a place at the dinner table for her and imagining her with me etc. No. 2 said I was creating resistance by wanting it too much and I was best just to let it go. Anyway, trying to understand what's going on here and if there was any genuine information between the two. Any thoughts? My rational thoughts tell me that the second person was a fraud, and the first perhaps had some genuine ability but not properly developed. On the other hand, my gut feeling tells me not to too quickly dismiss the second one. Major confusion here! Grateful for any thoughts!
  5. Indigo children - fact or load of crap?

    I'm starting to think everyone on this forum is an Indigo child.
  6. Indigo children - fact or load of crap?

    Well I certainly hope so - they are , after all, the only hope for humanity. The shining light that will lead us all to walk on water and turn ash into gold!

    Thanks very much for your reply and interesting information. I just wanted to point out that AIDS doesn't even exist. There's a list of about 20 other diseases that constitute an AIDS death and if a person tests positive for the harmless HIV virus then dies from one of those conditions, it's deemed AIDS. Here's the list. Refer to the heading "CDC AIDS-defining conditions".

    Thank you very much for your reply. This has taken a rather more philosophical turn than I was expecting. I’m not sure that discussions such as this are actually that useful to have, but just because I’m an Indigo and have an opinion on everything here goes. I have issues with conflating objective reality and intuitive experience. We know the great power of conscious belief in molding one’s experience - Christianity, just as one example, can be palpably true to a devoted believer even though its central teachings are objectively false. Not to single out Christianity, it’s just the most obvious example of intuitive experience leading one to an objectively false conclusion. Of course there are limitless other intuitive experiences a person could have that would lead them to other conclusions with just as much confidence, but which would be antithetical to Christianity. This is why we must use both logic and intuition; reason and feeling. All truth and virtue is a matter of finding the mean between the extremes. We all know the great problems and limitations of the naturalist method, but the other extreme is to assume that everything we intuitively feel equates with reality. People who do this without subjecting their intuitive beliefs to at least occasional scrutiny from their God-given sense of reason usually end up falling into cuckoo spiritual beliefs. Or they confuse genuine intuition with a mere liking for a particular belief, which they then adopt and defend with religious fervor based on nothing other than it making them feel good. They're all heart and no head, just like the hardened naturalist is all head and no heart. I know we've all met one of these people at spiritual gatherings (minimum!) All this is to say that there is a role for objective evidence in our lives. You feel the indigos are true, I feel that they’re not. The only way, then, to determine the truth of the matter is to ask whether any objective evidence exists to support this belief. To date, none has been forthcoming. Anyone?
  10. Indigo children - fact or load of crap?

    I agree completely, which is why I'm asking the question. At the same time, I do require some evidence behind claims before I accept them. Care to elaborate on your experience with them? Can you see their auras, or how do you know they are real? Thanks
  11. Indigo children - fact or load of crap?

    I don't think they're normal human characteristics, but fairly common in Generation Y and beyond. But again, the tests will vary because the criteria vary, depending on who you ask.
  12. Just been reading about the “indigo children” claim and did a test that shows I have a 90% certainty of being one. I’d love all this to be true as it would give me a lot of answers about my life. However, I’m having a difficult time distinguishing what constitutes an indigo child from what constitutes a spoilt brat. It seems more likely to be a psyop designed to give toxic parents an excuse for their failures, and of course to give Generation Participation-Award an excuse for bad behavior and more reasons to convince themselves of their uniqueness and preciousness. e.g. Indigos apparently have a sense of superiority and entitlement, poor social skills - preferring frequent solitude; high intelligence but often do poorly in school or work, and scattered/varied interests. Anyone spot a problem? I'd be curious to see how much of that was in the original book written in the 70s, too, and how much has been added since chronic device addiction became a problem. Furthermore, no-one can seem to agree on the specifics - some sites claim that all children being born now are indigos (God help us!) while others claim all newborns are “rainbow children” etc. Can anyone who can see auras tell me if there’s any truth in this? Or is it just a case of new age people believing anything they read as long as it sounds nice?
  13. Any techniques for if you've got too much of that energy? Other than using it, obviously... How do you move it to other centres of the body ?

  15. Are Men Lonely As Women? Are Spiritual Men Lonely?

    Gosh, I feel sorry for the poster. I choose not to buy into his story but yes, loneliness has been a great trial for me. (If any chicks between the ages of 20-32 want to marry me, send me a PM. *) *I'm serious
