Come into my parlor, Child, and let me devine your future
« on: October 12, 2018, 10:33:11 pm »
Hi, it's Deja.  I believe that 90% of the fortune tellers, crystal Ball scryers, tea
leaf readers and aura readers out there aren't worth a fraction of their fee.  I don't come across this opinion lightly; I have observed these  snake oil salespeople for a while and the one thing that is lacking from their imprersonation of that of a  true seer is their lack of fatigue due to the massive amount of energy it takes to pull their customer thats' live story out of them with then help of your divination tool of choice.  I remember I was was able to perform three tarot readings before I was too physically and mentally exhausted.   Sorry if I'm a little off topic, but it infuriates me to watch charlatan s attempt to perform scrying with ancient tools we have been practicing
the true art divination for thousands of years!
Whew, I've been wanting to get that anvil of of my chest for a while now!  Daamn tht thomggggdps 'g

You might want to tone down the color on your post, it makes it hard to read!
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

Hi, it's Deja. 

A Reminder:
Hi Deja,

Please use the default text color, font, and size when posting - we have many members who find it difficult or uncomfortable to read fancy colors or fonts, and it's required by our rules (in point #3 of 'The "Do" Rules' section).

This isn't a formal warning, just a reminder. No reply is necessary, but if you have questions or need clarification, please feel free to contact a member of staff privately.

Thanks!

Now that I can read it, yeah, I agree that there are a lot of charlatans out there. Not just in divination and magic, but also in religion and in the secular (and scientific!) world as well.

Some people will do anything to make money, including lie about and exaggerate their abilities and credentials.
