Just watched a show and she was scary accurate, but I must say I am still unconvinced. Any thoughts on her and her abilities including her thoughts ( or psychic views) on Heaven?

Some of the stuff makes sense, but I am not in agreement with all of it. Many people share similar experiences, and can relate to a thing or two. I try not to follow any one person. I take bits and pieces, and come to my own conclusions.

I thought she had been debunked as just another cold reader?

I don't know, she keeps going on shows, so many believe in her. She's freaky.

I didn't really see anything on the website that was particularly startling except for the fact that she'll charge you $850 for a reading on the phone (not even in person).

Yea, you kind of have to do a search on her to find out things she has predicted. My thoughts are, if you have such an amazing gift, why not help people instead of just charging for it?

She's just another con artist like the rest of them. There's nothing amazing or supernatural about her powers at all. If you compare the number of things she gets wrong as opposed to what she gets right, well, I guess you could consider that scary.

Why do so many go to her? I dont understand this. I have researched her and so many things are off. I dont get why people need this stuff.

Just like believing in Jesus and the afterlife, people want to believe that things such as "her powers" are real. Many of these people have suffered the loss of a loved one and want to believe they're getting a message from them through her. She tells them what they want to hear (ever notice it's most always nearly the same exact message?) for a not-so-modest price. I think people like her are scumbags.

Do a search on Derren Brown. He can do the same things she does (and more sometimes), but he admits it's all a trick.
