Discussions about Psychics and Psychic Phenomena, Extra Sensory Perception, Telepathy, Psi, Clairvoyancy, 6th Sense, Psychokinesis, etc.
I will be attending a performance with a medium in a few weeks (for those of you that know me, don't laugh). It will be in an audience setting in a small theater and my seats are close to the stage. I will be attending with what I intend to be an open mind and plan on sharing my experience on this board after the show. However, I am quite skeptical so what I am interested in is what things would constitute a "hit" and what would not? For example, if the person whom I wish to contact passed away due to brain cancer, what could the medium say that would be a "hit" and what is a "miss?' Would the medium saying they "see" head wounds constitute a "hit" for brain cancer? Or, if the manner of death was diabetes, what part of the body that is described would constitute a "hit?"
Since I am skeptical, I would be interested in your opinions on whether or not I should share specifics of whom I wish to contact, a little about their background, manner of death, etc. beforehand with you so that there is a reference before the show so there could be no "cheating" on my part? I'll be happy to, but my skeptical side says that if I do, how do I know that the medium doesn't have a "shill" watching over this site and could use it to help their "hot reading?" I'm already skeptical in that I had to give my credit card to the ticket agent so the medium already has access to my name. I don't believe, however, that the manner of death(s) has been made public to anyone but my family and a few friends.
Anyway, just looking for advice and perhaps a little experimental fun!
yes, you have to be careful about outright frauds. somewhat harder to pick is what I suspect john edward does -- I believe some people can tune in psychically on the living in the room like an antenna and get a few thoughts etc from them, such as a relative's name, etc, then run with it. they are not genuinely channeling the dead, just picking the brains of the living. the more you think about your recently passed aunty madge, the more they can get to tell you, including things 'only you knew about'. I've seen a couple of inadvertent giveaways by john edward in that area. further, john edward only seems to pass on very superficial messages 'from the other side', he gets some of the factual personal details correct, etc, but passes on very little by way of a message. so it's psychic paranormal activity, but still a fraud, and no evidence of an actual afterlife. however, evidence of an afterlife can be obtained elsewhere.
Yes, ProfWag, I now have your life history. I wouldn't say that it would EVER put anyone to sleep but it sure isn't going to help me write that best-seller, hot off the press book either.
HEY AROUET -- WAKE UP! Are you in on this deal or not?
