    Do you believe in fortune tellers?

    Especially when they tell you about the goodies one will get in the future of one's life.  This may lead to disappointment if their predictions do not come true.  What do you think?

    "... you're going to meet a tall, dark stranger..."

    If we're talking about the dime-a-dozen fortune tellers that one finds at fairgrounds, I'd have to say that no, I would not believe in them.

    It may also be true to say that they would probably be the first to admit that it was just a bit of fun and not to be taken too seriously.

    However, there have been well documented cases through history where those who read the auguries have been incredibly accurate with their predictive powers--however I wouldn't call them fortune tellers.

    Napoleon was well known for using the talents of one such 'seer' -a Madam Lenormand, to great effect, one who even predicted his divorce from Josephine and his downfall.

    For me there is only HERE and NOW and work as hard as you can to achieve your goals in life. And above all taking responsibility for your actions. This should be one of the most important achievements in life. We are responsible where we put or direct our energy into. The moment you're going to a fortune teller you are in fact not taking responsibility. You yourself have all the elements in you to MAKE your own future.
    I'm not saying you shouldn't go cause they can even give you new ideas you wouldn't come up with. But that's about it. Anybody can give you ideas and insights. My advice is that you watch out for them, that can make you dependent of their stories. Not that they want to, because they only want to be helpful, right? Most of them don't even know what they're doing to people on a energetic level.
    If you're fully taking responsibility of yourself and your actions you will gain some sort of a energetic "mood" filled with self-confidence which fortune tellers can't penetrate. They don't know what to do with those people.

    A Fortune Teller says this is the way things are going to be, PERIOD. Psychics aren't fortune tellers. They say this is the  possible way things are going but you can change it if you want.
    Psychics use clairaudience and/or clairvoyance and sometimes they use Tarot cards. They read the symbolism along with psychic feelings.

    I believe that is much like the "woman with a familiar spirit" they know your life sometimes, the question remains if it were of God wouldn't they know everything about you? God knows everything about me and I feel very loved and he says he wishes above all things that I prosper and be in health:

    3Jo 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

    His Word tells me this is what he wants for me to put my trust in him.

    Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
    7 ΒΆ  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
    8  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
    9  Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
    10  So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

    No, I think majority or 98% of them are fake.

    Never used to but do now. My marriage went through a bad patch and I needed help. Nobody else to turn to so sought out a local tarot reader. The guy was quite good but then moved. I then went to this very good lady who helped me more, she is very insightful and accurate , understanding. She didnt judge me for seeing another man behind husbands back, she was just there for me. I got through that phase and got a divorce, then went back to her when going through other things, she has now been there for me for many years , never let me down, but because we now do not live near each other it is by phone and by email, which is even better as I am quite busy now! She is at
