MY PSYCHICS SCAMMED ME --
THEN LAUGHED ABOUT IT!
by James Wills, guest contributor.
[June 17, 2006]
I know psychics are real. I've many, many years of experience with
phone psychics on many different services, and much professional training
and experience with psychology, psychotherapy, medicine, psychiatry, and
I'd naively thought that
all psychics had the ability to truly see the whole picture, plus the wisdom,
altruism, and special knowledge to truly help. Most do not.
It's that simple.
readers sound good and perceive some things with precision. Yet they
almost never have your best interest at heart. They're into making
money from you. It was hard for me believe the extent this is true.
Believe me when I tell you: there are many callers who are spending lots
of money being misled about issues that are important to them.
1. Many of psychic readers have
some psychic ability, but the primary motive is money, not your well being.
2. Almost no psychics possess excellent
moral or ethical qualities, or psychological smarts, to use their abilities
for your best interest.
3. Psychics will and do give readings
to keep you feeling good about what they say, so you will call back.
rare for psychics at Keen.com to possess
ability, wisdom, and altruism. I've spoken with many longtime callers
to Keen.com who agree from experience.
If you are new to Keen.com, or to online
psychics generally, be very careful!
"Where did I lose my car keys?" or "What did the cat say?" are fine.
But if it's your emotional life, involving intense feelings where you could
get hurt, then go to someone who must be responsible for what they say. Keen.com readers are not. You
pay big bucks without accountability. My research reveals that my
experience is more common than not.
meaning to single her out, when calling Keen.com,
I most often spoke with Empress Dawn, so I'll relate my experience with
Dawn speaks with great conviction. And she is psychic, no doubt about
it. I was wowed like crazy for numerous months and thousands of dollars.
But that doesn't mean the advice you're getting from her or others is any
good, because my extensive -- and expensive! -- research shows that it's
very unlikely you're getting good advice.
wowed and unknowingly misled by her for almost a year, and walked into
a mess because I trusted her and other readers. It seemed too good
to be true. It was. I kept calling back, "Are you sure you
see it that way?" Over and over. "Yes, this is so wonderful."
I enjoyed almost a year of assurances by Empress Dawn and other psychics
regarding a certain woman. The old "returning soul mate" story.
Dawn seemed well-meaning if, in retrospect, imprudent for encouraging involvement
with such a deeply damaged person [as that woman turned out to be].
Empress Dawn (and other readers) many times, over many months, said "Hang
in there," and "She is going to make you so happy," and "She'll become
your be all and end all," and "It is going to be -- not easy but -- so
wonderful," and "It is profound and unique," and "Her problem is she's
never had good sex -- You're the man for the job and she knows it!"
found out that this woman was a committed prostitute, and drug and weird
sex addict, who is deeply disturbed, and will likely never be a reasonably
really trusted Empress Dawn. She sounded trustworthy. The clincher
seems to be that, in the end, she refused to acknowledge or discuss her
mistake or its significant effect. Her attitude seems to be that
I am history. In a context that is all about altruism, or should
be all about altruism. That is a poor showing.
Dawn recently wrote the following to me: "So many readers called me and
they laughed, telling me how they painted a rosy picture for you."
She was describing other Keen.com psychics
who discussed how they deliberately misled callers, then got together afterwards
to laugh about it!
Dawn may have used her abilities to deliberately con me, as she knew I'd
call back many times. I suspect she simply lacks moral and ethical
standards. She's into the money and that's it. Based on the
overall picture, it would seem her psychological smarts score is zero.
taints telephone psychics. That Empress Dawn's "readings" could be
so extremely destructive was, at the time, unimaginable to me. Yes,
was very, very naive. These psychics are not educated psychologically,
do not look into the eyes of the people they "read" for, or need to be
the tiniest bit accountable or truly capable of vision. Just good
enough to convince us that psychics are real.
