Do You Believe In Psychics?

I was asked to review a company that offers psychic readings through phone conversations and jumped at the chance. You always wonder about those commercials, right?

When I was 16, I cut school with some friends (sorry mom) and headed out to Corona, Queens for a reading from this gifted woman. She didn’t charge any money. You gave what you could and the WAIT to see her was insane. We went when we were able to go – even if I had to miss a few classes to make my appointment. (again sorry mom)

I remember riding the train in and feeling a bit skeptical, but my friends insisted and I was always that girl who was looking for adventure.

The psychic told me things that were SO SPECIFIC to me and couldn’t possibly be a guess. I won’t get into too many details – but will tell you one thing she said just to prove my point.

My ex-boyfriend and his father really didn’t have a great relationship. The one thing he had from his dad was this ring and he cherished it. It was his prized possession. Well, one day he told me that he lost the ring while playing with it driving. His hand was out the window and he said it slipped out of his hand and he lost it. That just never sat  well with me. It was his absolute FAVORITE thing on the planet. I kept thinking… why would he be so careless with it? But, I wasn’t going to argue with him about the story so I just let it go.

During my reading, the woman just asked for my name. I told her NOTHING… and she brought up this freaking ring. She said your boyfriend just told you he lost something that was very personal to him. And I was like… YEAH! She said that he didn’t lose it, he pawned it for money and he was too ashamed to tell me about it. He really needed cash and was desperate.

I went home and asked my boyfriend and he said that it was TRUE and how did I KNOW. He felt so bad about it but he did what he had to do. My mouth just dropped open.

And that’s not even the REAL STUFF SHE TOLD ME – That’s what I’m telling YOU! There are many other things that were DEAD ON and that blew my MIND. Needless to say, I do believe in psychics and their ability to know.

Back to this reading.

The psychic reading I received from Psychic Source wasn’t nearly as amazing, but she did say a handful of interesting things.

  • I asked about my grandfather (who passed when I was 15 and who I lived with my whole life – was a father figure to me) and she said that I had 5 people around me. Two grandfathers, One grandmother, an “uncle and his sister”. (I don’t have an aunt and uncle that are deceased – so that was off, but I thought maybe they were GREAT aunts or something…)
  • She said that one of my grandfathers was in the military (which is true – but it didn’t define him in any way) and that he helps me with my writing because he always wanted to be a writer. (I never heard that before)
  • My grandmother stays with me often and keeps me calm. (ok, but that’s kind of a blanket statement, isn’t it)
  • I’m going to spend a lot of time by the ocean when I get older. I will buy a beach house. (cool)
  • I will become a successful author. Right now, I make money writing, but I will begin to write novels and that is where I will find true success. She saw 3-5 novels. (I have a million book ideas – so this was nice to hear)
  • She also sees me traveling to Europe a lot (I’ve been there at least 16 times)

So, that was all pretty basic – general stuff. Your grandmother keeps you calm. Your grandfather was in the military (good assumption considering my age). But this next part is the part that got me.

She said there was a recent break up in the family – significant others – something like my parents but not my parents. (My mother and stepfather recently divorced after 16+ years of marriage). She said that relationship caused a tremendous amount of stress and trouble for the family but it “has passed” and those “wounds are healing”. She said my mother is getting better with each passing day and eventually she will be whole again. She’s “coming around the mountain” and “that’s all over with”. I almost started to cry.

Whether or not that is true – I want to believe it is. So, I was meant to have this reading. 🙂

She asked me if I had any other questions – and I brought up my husband. She said our marriage will last a lifetime and that he truly loves me but for me not to get too stubborn and to work with him/ remain flexible. I guess I can be a handful… so I respect that.

Our union is powerful and she saw us working together in business. I told her that he helps me with my job now and she said that made sense.

Then she flipped back to me writing again and said after a few more years of meditation (I started to mediate before bed a few weeks ago) / yoga / and finally focusing on my interest in Buddhism (which I TOTALLY HAVE) I will get an insane amount of recognition for my writing. She guessed around the age of 38. I’m 33 now.

Final remarks were to research Louisiana a bit. She feels like that will have something to do with my writing? CR-AZY RIGHT!

So, there were some big zingers. I’m thinking about things that she couldn’t just say to anyone. The divorce really makes sense to me, the writing also made sense to me and the Buddhism comment was the strongest I felt. I have a BIG interest in that philosophy and have even visited a temple a few years back.

The charge was about $4 a minute and I think I was on the phone with her for about 10? So, for $40 I was able to have a little fun with a psychic.

Have you ever had a reading before?

Recipes You Need to Make


  1. Awesome. I am so excited to do my reading. I better think of some questions I’d like to ask. Good advice just giving your name. I’d love to hear more about your first psychic reading sometime.

    So interesting about your first reading. I don’t think most psychics are legit, but I have a feeling that some of them really can do what they claim.

    My stepdad sees a psychic regularly.

    So I went. She didn’t say a single thing that was true about us. She kept asking things that would’ve been really super obvious if Seba was a stereotypical Latino — “You’ve once done yardwork for a job.” (He never has). And that he’d have trouble with a visa in the U.S. (he doesn’t need a visa, he has a European passport). So I felt like those were just educated guesses on her part. Then she also said that in the next year our photography business would take off photographing kids — definitely not true either, if anything I’ve steered farther and farther from that, and again, I feel like that’s a very educated guess because most people that are self-taught photographers do kids. And she knew we were going on a trip to Europe and she said she saw us ” running to catch a flight.” Duh. When does that not happen to people who travel a lot? So that was all disappointing.

    However, she did say things that came true about other people. That my brother would get his girlfriend pregnant towards the beginning of last year — that happened. And a few other things about my mom that I think are true.

    People with my roots tend to be firm believers of the supernatural and psychics. Though I don’t trust every psychic, I do believe there are people out there who tell the truth.
    I do know this guy who “sees” things, it’s very interesting and kind of creepy.

    I think we all have intuition and some of us have honed that ability better than others, but some people marketing themselves as “psychic” aren’t any more psychic than my mom (she’s not)….I did have one reading that blew my mind in terms of specificity and accuracy. The psychic said I’d marry an ex-boyfriend many years later…and I did!

    More importantly, did you ever go back to that woman in Corona? And can I see her too!?! 🙂

  13. My first reading went just like yours. It was scary accurate, but then every reading after that didn’t compare. That just goes to show you that some people can do it, and some can’t. The trick is finding the right ones.
