I have a joke when I can make an informed guess about someone, I say some people say I’m psychic and some people say I’m psychotic. It’s just a bit of a laugh and generally goes down well but it does illustrate we can all add up body language and other things to make informed guesses about other people.
I have a colleague who genuinely claims she is psychic and does professional readings etc. I’m not sure how I feel about it but my partner is a believer and I’m not sure about hooking the two of them up for a reading.
Personally I believe it’s just a case of cold reading but what do you think and how does it tie in with Buddhist practice? I know it should be a case of me respecting other people’s practices but at the same time if I go to one the meetings they’re going to be ‘using’ the ‘spirits’ my departed nearest and dearest and I find that quite offensive.
