Why won't psychics read me?

So, my sister is very much into the spiritual world and has visited psychics several times a year for as long as I can remember.

I first went to see one with her about 6 years ago, and although this psychic had given my sister very successful readings in the past, she flat out refused to read me. She apologised profusely, gave me a refund and when I probed why, she just said sometimes some people can't be read. confused My sister was sure this meant I was going to die hmm but we laughed it off in the end.

Last year, she told me about another psychic/medium she had been to see a few times that had gotten so many things right. I agreed, went along and the psychic did a tarot reading. She began by saying things that were totally wrong (like I had children, both parents here, etc.) and I politely apologised and said that wasn't correct. She then said she wasn't getting anything and it was probably because I was a psychic too. I assured her I wasn't and she said sometimes other psychics come along to test her and that she wasn't prepared to help.

So, another unsuccessful visit (paid for this time). Then last week, I agreed to go to a spiritualist evening with my sister at a hotel event. There were a few psychic mediums in the centre of the room and an audience seated around them. They were getting messages from people on the other side and seemed to be doing really well, a lot of people in the audience seemed happy. Eventually one came to my sister and seemed to describe our parents (who have passed), he passed on some information that seemed quite specific like the things they were buried with (not typical things) and even mentioned the pet name they had for my sister. She was thrilled!

I should mention here that we were sat a seat apart, with a colleague of my sister between us. The medium chap then come back to my sister and said I have a young woman here, gave the initial, description, age, and a few other things, and she couldn't think of anyone on the other side that matched, so he said he would leave it with her. We whispered about it, way out of his ear shot, and realised the description matched me! Later he came back and had a pet name this woman on the other side he for my sister, and sure enough it was one I called her often. So not only did the psychic pass messages on to my sister, and not me, from our parents, he then described me on the other side??

Do psychics secretly have it in for me??

Do you believe any of this crap? Maybe they can pick up that you don't so avoid you. I mean, you're clearly not dead are you so they're not very good. grin

Nah. They guess stuff. Ask leading questions and work things out from your expressions.

You're just someone who keeps their eyes down and has minimal mannerisms.

Maybe you don't look gullible enough.

It's obvious really - you're a ghost like that Bruce Willis. grin

Is your sisters fb set to open by any chance? Was she chatting to anyone before hand at the hotel event? They usually have people dotted about asking people sly questions.

I've been to a couple of things, not becuase I believe in it, just because I find the whole set up interesting (how they get away with it) and no one has ever said anything correct about me. Anything that was said wrong to anyone else they would say I'll leave you to think about that one, you'll understand it later hmm

GingerFoxInAT0phat Fri 12-Feb-16 14:28:06

Oh and they don't just ask questions, they listen in hoping to hear someone say 'I hope my brother/mum/cat comes through'

It's a tough one because I don't like to discount things cos they seem unbelievable without seeing for myself first. But sure enough when I have tried it for myself they have only given me reason to be skeptical.

My sister has had plenty of, what sound like, successful visits but obviously I wasn't there for those readings so don't know if she was being led or forced things to fit. She's not very gullible in any other area of life so it's hard to see her just falling for nonsense but I suppose if it's what she wants to hear she will hear it in some shape or form!

Why do they have to be so shitty to me though? Fair enough don't read me cos you think I'm a nonbeliever but don't keep making out like I'm gonna die/already dead! Starting to give me a complex!

Do you see dead people?

MrsBee55 Fri 12-Feb-16 14:35:17

GingerFox - her fb isn't set to open and we didn't have to register beforehand to attend, it was a pay at the door jobby, no names given. As I do wonder about those things too, not in a 'I want to catch them out' kind of way, just a ruling out of other possibilities way.

There were a few people who say there clutching photos of their deceased loved ones and sure enough they got great readings but there were others who got messages with crazy detail that I couldn't explain, including my sister.

MrsBee55 Fri 12-Feb-16 14:36:08

Originalmavis - thankfully, I do not see dead people!

originalmavis Fri 12-Feb-16 14:39:20

You are probably one of those people that these frauds psychics just can't cold read. That must piss them off so they have to say something mysterious.

I see a tall dark stranger... He's weatring a coat...and has two legs...and a head..and a, no two arms!!!! I see a letter... A? B? C? D?

MrsBee55 Fri 12-Feb-16 14:51:55

Lol maybe I am just a major annoyance without realising it! I am the type, I have resting bitch face too which doesn't help.

A friend told me about a reading once that was awful from beginning to end but she sat there nodding because it was too awkward to do anything else then she paid and left! Maybe if I did that I would get a reading hmm

Stop spamming Venus. You can't be all that psychic if you are spamming here. MN is fairly anti psychic

DropYourSword Sat 23-Jul-16 18:01:10

I would class anyone who felt they needed a cold "psychic" reading as emotionally unstable Venus

It sounds like the medium wasn't getting it right. Maybe the spirit of your parents were describing you to him and he didn't understand. The other mediums you experienced were charalatans. Don't take any of it personally. A lot of them are not real.

Maybe this is your superpower and you are actually a superhero. Or maybe you have a very lovely big angel that doesnt trust psychics and shields you frrom all the witchery sorcery people doing their no good devilry on you.
This seems the most rational explanation.

Guiltypleasures001Maybe your a twin op and you don't know

Strangely that's what I thought. Maybe you were meant to be a twin, but it just never eventuated and that's why people cannot read you.

I must admit I have had turkish coffee grounds and tarot cards read though, and none of it was correct. smile

People differ in the amount of tiny almost subconscious 'tells' they have. theres nothing psychic about it. Some people may as well have an autocue on their forehead it's so obvious what they are thinking.
A minority of people don't, or do it to a much much lower level. They are probably the ones 'psychics' don't read. They will cover it with some balls about you also being psychic or special in some way to divert

May I suggest you take up poker? smile

Psychics are con artists who prey on the grieving. Vile people.

Anyone else read that as physics
