Here's something I just thought of while sitting on the throne this morning...
If a psychic uses observational information about a customer such as style of clothes, wedding ring (or lack of), brand of watch, breast implants, kind of vehicle, dirt on their shoes, roughness of hands, unintentional but overhead conversation, etc. and then uses that information in such a manner that it could be perceived by the customer that information was obtained paranormally, would that be considered fraud? Or, in other words, if a psychic uses cold reading in any form, would that be fraudulent?
Would you need examples of what I'm asking?

I think it would only be fraud it they claimed to be using special psychic powers but knew that they were actually cold reading. Some people who cliam to be psychic may not realise that they are simply very good cold readings.
i think Craig B would say that they are naturally good cold readers because they are tapping into some sort of psi, but I don't think we need to go there.

But what if the eastern teachings don't sit well with my current lifestyle or beliefs? I mean, I'm quite happy with my life, why should I change my lifestyle when I don't believe my current one is broken?

Wives have this interesting habit of knowing when it is time for us to grow and change, whether we like it or not.
