I didn't believe in Psychics prior to having it proven to me. I was neutral. If I were to list it on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being NO WAY, PSYCHICS ARE QUACKS! and 10 being TOTALLY BELIEVE IN IT, and 5 being neutral, I was probably closer to 4.5ish.
A few years back, I was probably around 2 or 3 though.
I distinctly remember a friend of mine going to see a psychic/palm-reader. He came back and I asked him "What did she tell you?" and he said something like "She said I've been waiting for something big to happen to me, and it will happen very soon..."
I said to him "What a pile of crap! That could mean anything..." I mean, it's so general it could be totally spun in 10,000 directions and no matter which way you look at it, it can't be made false.
I don't know if this lady was a fraud, a really bad psychic, or if the reading was just really bad, but I wasn't impressed with the reading he got at all. To me it didn't prove anything.
However, having experimented with getting my own readings done, it's been proven to me.
Unless someone here can "scientifically" explain to me how a psychic was able to answer 3 very specific questions I wrote in my journal the night before the reading?
