Do any aunts and uncle believe in fortune teller? Are there any experience from aunts and uncle here?

As a chinese, many of us believe in fortune teller and physic reading. But i was raised in an atheist family and not a believer of mystical things other than logical things. My dad said that they are a fraud.

Recently my friends went to a fortune teller and told me that they got a reading that is so accurate according to their condition. One of them is my closest friend. She's having trouble before her marriage and the uncle had told her not to marry this guy. But she did marry him and had a son with him. Now she lives miserably and her husband is abusive toward her. Almost 90% of the reading is true. He even predict when she got pregnant (she married for 2 year before she got pregnant) and told her that her husband is stingy which is true. The uncle is not her acquintance or anyone she know. He just ask about her and husband name then see the orange she picked beforehand.

The other girl got a accurate reading too and the uncle is popular in our town. Many people find him for solution of their problem.

I saw him once as my friend persuaded me. I must admit that i do want to know about my future. Im not 100% believe in this but i give it a try.

Before i go, i prepare my mental to heard the worst thing or good thing i might hear. 2 of my friends got a bad reading saying their couple is bad but not giving solution for them.

Surprisingly i got all good news about my future. Too good that i think its illogical. He asjed me ehat i want to know. I said about my love life. He cut the orange and read sonething from it. He said that i already met my soulmate and getting marry soon ( that is 3 months into our soon wedding). I asked him if he is a good man. He said "yes. As i said he is your soulmate and you shouldnt worry that he might do something bad. He will always play with your children and a family man". Then he said that not until im 30 i will have happy life. (Im 27 now its 3 years to go).

Going everywhere with plane as if its a taxi. I said if its possible because my fiance is not yet succeed now. He said yes of course because he will be succeed after marry. He got luck from marrying me. He said both of us will only marry once. I will have 3 children. 2 son and a daughter. When i asked him the first one is son or daughter he answered me 3 kids. Okay?

I must admit that im so happy to hear this. I wish all he said is true. I know some part of me do believe that it may be 50 50 scam. But base on my friend experience it is accurate for them. Oh yea he even said that my fiance will marry me soon because he loves me and also got pressure from his mom. This is the only thing i can say that its 98% true.

Should i believe this? It seems so perfect that i wish its true but i dont want to live in false hope.

Youcannotbeserious agony auntWe can only base our opinions of these so-called "fortune tellers" on our own personal experiences. If you feel comforted by this person, then that is great. I would urge you to remember that life is unpredictable though. Good or bad can come round the corner and change your life in an instant. Accidents happen. Illness happens. My advice would be to enjoy and cherish what you have and work towards getting what you want/need. Life does not tend to hand you things on a plate. Fortune helps those who help themselves.

I usually steer clear of these people because I am very cynical about their "powers" and think the majority of them are just clever people readers. Friends of mine have been to see "fortune tellers" and were told things like "you have gone through some hard times" and "you have lost someone close to you". My friends, so eager to believe, were amazed these people could know these things. I, on the other hand, asked my friends, "show me someone who does not think they have had any hard times in their life" and, regarding the loss of someone close, this friend was in her 40s at the time. Take a group of 40-something year olds and you will probably be hard pushed to find one who has NOT lost someone close.

I always remember being approached by a woman a few years ago on a shopping precinct who said she was a gypsy. She was trying to get people to give her money for "lucky heather". I politely declined but she took hold of my arm and said "I can see you have been through hard times recently". I smiled at her, shrugged and said "Not that I am aware of, but thank you for your concern" and carried on walking. As I was walking past her on the way back, guess what? I heard her utter the exact same words to another woman who had not bought the "lucky heather".

Aunty BimBim agony auntI am with Miss Cupid, I believe there are people who are very intuitive and are able to .... I don't know, pick up vibrations about others might be a way to describe it.

I also KNOW there are a lot of charlatans who will, in exchange for money, tell you what they think you want to hear.

My advise to you is, take on board everything you were told, believe you have the capacity to fulfil your dreams as you have been told, but you cant just sit back and wait for it all to magically unfold around you, you will still need to work hard at making your marriage work, to be willing to make some sacrifices to build careers and work hard for your future.

I wish you and your fiancé well. :-)

If fortune tellers could really do such, they could play the stock market and make a lot more money than they do.

Have you ever read or heard about any scientific studies of anyone having the abilities to foresee the future? I haven't. Anyone with a gift of gab can open a fortune-telling business.

If there was any real truth involved with fortune-tellers, it would be an enormous business. Every fortune teller knows their customers will believe two things...what they want to hear and what scares the hell out of them.

It may be fun to think about good things that someone tells you will happen in your life, but don't give money to these people. Many will want you to come back for second readings or advanced services.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (16 July 2017):

When someone gets things right it can be wonderful or irritating depending on how you are feeling!

Good news is always welcome and it is best to strive towards it!

Some people have a conscious mind and they can help people in ordinary ways that then seem extraordinary!

I personally would not mind if I were told that everything was going to be alright with a happy outcome.

Instead I would work towards keeping it that way.

Those words of encouragement can give you that extra push to allow you to believe that you deserve a happy family life!

Perhaps our forbearers wish to let us know that all will be well!

But we must live our life and put in the necessary effort in order to achieve what we so desire.

Your abused friend could take a new path one day because we have self-determination as well as freewill.

We can decide to open a carton of fruit juice and drink it or we can throw it away believing it to be harmful!

Remember it can be just as annoying to be told it will all go wrong!

You must use your judgement as to how much this information influences your life.

For example if you were told you would get brilliant exam results it would still be advisable to attend your courses and to study hard!

A person who went drinking heavily the night before an exam would be pushing their luck and may find that all was not well so pay attention to how you operate and use the information you have been given to focus your thoughts!

A female reader, Miss.Cupid United States +, writes (16 July 2017):

Miss.Cupid agony auntI am one of a few that actually believe in psychics. However ive had sketchy experiences as well. I am very fascinated in wanting to know my future, usually because I don't know where my life is heading and I want to make sure its in the right directions.

I have however noticed a lot of psychics will ask you questions to figure out what they should tell you. And I have learned to never give information and answer their questions by saying "I don't know" usually this confuses a fake psychic because they don't know how else to read me.

I have however also came across a real psychic and she has blown my mind with the information given to me, she was also a medium so she brought up my grandfather.

So to answer your question, yes, I believe in psychics. If you feel like everything they have told you is correct and you connect then I don't see how you were scammed.
