Chit Chat: Would You Visit A Psychic?
Have you ever visited a psychic? Or would you?
I read this article a couple weeks ago. In it the author discusses her experiences while visiting 3 different "$10 psychics" in New York. While I didn't find the experiences contained in the article impressive (how impressive is a reading you get for $10 going to be?) it did remind me that visiting a psychic has been on both mine and Jessica's to-do lists for over 2 years.
Something I have never told a lot of people is that I believe in psychics, karma, magic, horoscopes (proud Leo here!), ghosts/spirits, etc. Not in a crazy way I promise. More of in an unless I am given a reason not to believe I am going to remain open kind of way. I maintain a healthy level of skepticism but tend to refuse to close myself off from the possibility of unexplainable things existing. In my opinion the world much more dull if I had to be so frigid with what I believe in.
So in the 2 years since Jessica and I have decided we want to visit a psychic why haven't we? There are a few different reasons. We don't really live in the ideal spot to find a local psychic (although I did Google and find a few a couple hours away). I am also a tiny bit afraid that I would receive bad news. The biggest reason though is that while I do believe there are some legitimate psychics I also believe that there are many more who are scams. Since we will added this to our to-do for fun and will not be heading into this looking for any profound life answers I think it is about time Jessica and I finally take the plunge, do a little research, see if we can gather a few more friends who would be willing to participate, and book ourselves an appointment.
After I visit a physic I'll share the details here but until then I would love to know if any of you have visited a psychic. What was the experience like? What did the psychic tell you? Any tips on how to find the right psychic for my reading or tips to prepare myself?
