Sylvia Browne: Psychic Or Fraud? I Don't Know Anymore.

I consider myself an avid Sylvia fan. I watch her on Montel ever chance I get & I own serveral of her books which I couldn't stop reading. But I was looking over some other discussions about her on MyLot & saw one website stating that she is a fraud. I decided to check it out even though I didn't really want to... http://www.stopsylviabrowne.com Some of the articles I've read on there are pretty discomforting, providing that they are true... And it's starting to make me have doubts. I don't want to doubt her, I want to believe. I NEED to believe. Much of her religous views mirror my own, but I held these views BEFORE reading any of her books. Her writtings only served to cement my views. I guess it would be like this, if I found out that she was a fraud my whole foundation would crumble. But I walked away from the typical fire & brimstone beliefs because I didn't want to follow blindly anymore... I don't want to follow Sylvia blindly simply because I'm scared she might have lied & manipulated all of her loving fans for so many years. I NEED to know the truth... Sure I could look inside myself & try to determine what my inner most heart believes, but I don't really know anymore... What are your thoughts on this and why? Why do you love her or hate her?

All psychics are frauds. Some of them believe their own claims, but mostly they lie deliberately. Sylvia Browne and all the others like her have been proved wrong so many times, but if people want to believe, they're going to believe. You'd be better off if you found some way to deal with your life without depending on people like that.

Oh do NOT take that dude seriously! She really does GREAT work in this world. She works with law enforcement for FREE - well you said you are a fan so you probably already know all the great things she does for this world. As long as she makes US feel better about ourselves, our lives, ect and is not asking for donations like a lot of frauds and evangelists. Oh wow...I could go on and on about this woman. I know she charges a nice chunk of change for a reading but you do get what you pay for. Not to mention that in CA the cost of living is a big larger there then most places in America. She's not a millionaire either. She supports so many organizations, ect. I believe in her. I'm skeptical when someones says they're psychic, ect. But the very first time I seen her there was something in my soul that resonated with her and that is all I need. Of course she's not 100% and has NEVER claimed to be. She's even had frauds put out of business and arrested for it. That dude has something up his - well you know. He must be afraid of her or something. All he does is focus on the bad things and NONE of the good. He has never talked (as far as I know) to anyone who Sylvia has actually had readings from. Think about this really. She's doing this for 50 plus years. Someone would have came forward more publicly. And he's never had a reading or even read one of her books. I hope one day I can get / have a reading of hers. As a matter of fact I am hoping to go to one of her lectures in July. I love her and her wonderful gifts, the wonderful things she's doing in this world. All she is doing is spreading LOVE and spirituality in this world. What's wrong with that? Look inside sweetie. The soul never lies. I feel the same way - she just confirmed what my soul resonates. Don't let someone like that dude shake you or he wins.
