Do You Believe in Fortune Tellers?

Hope you guys enjoyed my previous post about my garage sale haul! :) I'll try to look for more awesome items on Saturday!

Obviously, my post for today is about fortune tellers (or psychics, whatever you wanna call them) And no, I didn't sign up to those infamous astrological slash psychic websites. A middle aged woman actually went up to me randomly outside the mall and asked if I had a few minutes to spare. It was broad daylight and her intentions seemed harmless so I stayed a bit for a chat. She then told me straight away that she's a psychic and that she's more than willing to give me a free reading - the only catch is that I have to tell my friends all about it (and I did, but not because she asked me to. we'll talk about that later) and that I should take note of everything she'll say very carefully. I have always wanted to try it out so I agreed, I had nothing to lose anyway.

Long story short, she actually amazed and crept me out at the same time. She mentioned a lot of things which I've never told anyone, not even my bestfriend nor boyfriend. After indirectly showing off her skills (or black magic, as others would call it) she then proceeded to tell me about my future. She also mentioned something about my current relationship with my long distance boyfriend, which gave me a very reassuring feeling I must say. 

Now, here's the problem, I've become obsessed. I didn't waste my time looking for bogus psychics on the internet, I want HER. Before going home, I always pass by the spot where she approached me but I never saw her again. At first, I thought she wanted to give me a free reading as a sign of promotion; but then I realised that she didn't even give me her contact details - nothing at all.

That happened a month ago and I still constantly think about it. I told my friend about it and he said that his grandma also has special abilities with those kind of stuff, but she never shared her so-called gift with her family.

Despite that incident, I still believe that everything that happens in this world is caused by our actions. Do I believe in fate? Yes, but to a certain point. Say for example, you met your significant other at your university - that's fate. But you would have never met him if you decided not to go to college, or went somewhere else. What happens to us are still the roots of our actions, and that is why I'm trying really hard to forget everything that the psychic told me. Also, if you're wondering whether I think she's a fake or not, I would say that I'm not sure. I'm a very skeptical person and I never believe in anything unless I can prove it. 

I know a lot of people who are extremely obsessed about knowing their future (I know heaps who have consulted different fortune tellers!) and I think I've somehow figured out the reason why. When a person who claims to have gifts tell you all these wonderful things which you've been wanting to hear since day one, you tell yourself to believe it. Of course, you'll eventually crave for more details and more readings, which I think is very unhealthy.

What about you? Have you met a psychic before? Do you believe in their special abilities?

  1. I've never been to a psychic. I've thought about going just for fun. But I'd be too afraid of caring too much about what they said instead of just waiting and making my own decisions as they come.

  2. Aw thank you so much for you comment! What a cute blog you have! Did you make the drawings on your buttons yourself? they look amazing!!

    Love, Lisette

  3. Hmmm, that's so interesting! I've never been to a psychic, but I definitely believe in magic and all that jazz. Good luck on finding her again!

  4. Newest follower here! I found you through the Sunday link up! Cute blog, I can’t wait to read more!

  5. Strangers coming up to you and telling that he/she can tell your fortune are a dime a dozen. I have had occasions when this happened to me too, once even in my office! This Silk guy took a look at me and said that I had a bright fortune ahead but there was something else. I looked him in the eyes, and I meant really looked as in looking directly and deeply into his eyes as I allowed him to keep on talking. Then silence. He couldn't proceed. There was nothing for him to see anymore and he was really startled. All his clairvoyance just escaped him. I smiled and told him to return when the bright fortune was with me and I would treat him to kopi o (black coffee). He has not returned yet, perhaps because fortune has not smiled brightly on me yet - hopefully sometime in the near future, lol!

    Try this simple experiment. When you are talking to someone, look DIRECTLY and DEEPLY into his/her eyes as you continue to talk. Don't divert your attention elsewhere because you feel uncomfortable. Just keep on talking as you keep on looking deeply and directly into the eyes of the person you are talking to. Well, what happened?

    As for this thing called fate, science calls it synchronicity. That for a particular event to have happened the way it happens, a thousand and other events must have happened the way they happened. In other words, the mere fluttering of a butterfly's wings will affect every other thing or things that happen. That is saying a lot and yet like not saying anything isn't it - haha.

    The Chinese believe that your ending up with someone as your life partner is fated or what they call 缘分 yuanfen. That doesn't mean of course that you will be together with each other for life. It is a romantic concept in a way, and I would like to keep it at that.

    But of course, the mind is a very powerful thing that we may have not given enough credit or attention to. However, there is enough to show that the mind does and often can affect what happens.

    Back to the fortune-teller thing, I remember reading that King George was once, when he was aged 23(?), told by a world famous palmist the he (King George) would die at the age of 60 (69?) and right at the age predicted, the poor King passed away for no apparent health or sickness reason! We may never know for certain whether the king passed away because his star was up as predicted, or whether he had died because of the impact the prediction might have had on his mind so that his body had been mentally disposed to comply to with the prediction all the years since age 23?

  6. Interesting blog. If that person was able to know those things which you have not told anyone, I can't blame you for wanting to get more reading. But if that happened to me, I'd be too creep out.

    As for me, I choose not to entertain the though of fortune telling. The thought of having someone know and read what is gonna happen in the future or what happened in my past keeps me uncomfortable. Although I must admit, I've thought of it some time!

    I love your blog! Following you now!

  7. I've never been to see a fortune teller/psychic or anything like that, so I can't really form an opinion of them until I have. I've always wanted to though! I'd want to have a cool experience like yours.

  8. This is very interesting. I'm sure lots of people want to know their future. But as for me, I would rather live life as they happen, flaws and all. It was nice stopping by your blog!

  9. It's kind of scary to live life knowing what's going to happen tomorrow. I've never met one and if I happen to met you did, I will first asked the outcome- good or bad. If it's good, I will be glad and be obsessed with it soon but if the outcome is bad, I'm sorry, fortune-teller(s) can't predict my fate... :P

  10. I'm pretty skeptical in terms of fortune tellers. Nor do I believe that they're evil or wrong or anything like that either... There was a girl on one of the message boards I was a regular at for awhile a few years ago that would do readings, and when I was going through a pretty rough time with my boyfriend, I looked her up and got a reading from her, largely because I was grasping at straws in terms of being comforted over the situation.

    She had access to quite a bit of information about me, but since I stopped posting at that message board more than a year prior to the reading, so she didn't know any recent information about me and I'd gone through some pretty dramatic changes.

    I asked her for a relationship reading, she asked if there was someone I had in mind in particular, which I said yes and I remember her telling me that she felt kind of startled because she envisioned something dramatic happening very soon that would likely take a month to resolve, but otherwise she had a good feeling about this relationship and to stick with it... and she warned me to make sure I used protection or abstained for the next month because she sensed that something could happen there that I might not want yet.

    Three days later, my boyfriend and I had a huge fight and didn't speak to each other for a month. It was a pretty unpleasant situation, but the fact that she'd been so positive otherwise about the relationship brought me a lot of comfort, especially in light of the fact there were a lot of people who were big naysayers in the beginning of our relationship.

    Is she psychic? I have no idea... but I do know in my situation, she did bring me a lot of comfort.

  11. That is so cool! If someone ever offered, I would take them up on it in an instant. But I haven't been interested enough to pay for it yet.... I am a big believer in astrology though.
