What if someone predict what will happen in your life in the next 2 years or in the next 6 months or in the next 2 days or in the next 3 hours? I once tried the tarot reading and to be honest,I don't like that someone will predict my life since I don't wanna know what will happen in the future.For me,It's not challenging already as if you believe in it,It will just make you think again and again about it and this will make your feel not comfortable.The person who predicted me way back 2001,just by touching my hand,he figured out immediately that I do have scoliosis and that's really shocked me as I do have scoliosis,while it continues,he give me good signs in the future but I will lose someone in the next 6 months,I have to say,It really happens as we brokeup with my ex boyfriend but the thing is,I found a better one.I know this practice is way back 19th century and some people believe for sure.How about you?Do you believe in fortune telling?Have you tried it?Did it really happen?Was you scared?Share your experience and thoughts!

I went to a fortune teller a long time ago and they said I would end up marrying someone short well I am married and my husband is tall. So then she said I was going to live a long life and cross many roads? I don't really know what to believe because she kept telling me she could tell me more if I were to give her more money?I do sometimes believe in them I would personally like to go again one day to a different one the one I went to was over 10 years ago. Have a good day!

hi insulion I never did b elieve until one day my friend took me to her little sister who was just `16 and everything that child said to me has happened I married late at 32. My husband's initials would be G. H. and scary enough they were. I would have just two children and one would die young. this also happened. I would have to have a hysterectomy after second child was born, again that was true, My husband would have major surgery that would change his outlook on life. He had colon cancer and had to have a colostomy . It really did bother him a lot . so it was really scaring me and I felt like she really had some physic powers . I have never gone back to a fortune teller as I just do not want to know what is in my future at all.. it is much too unnerving and I don 't think our heavenly Father wants us to look ahead like that,not through fortune tellers at least. i

This kind of event is really scary to know.That's the reason why I don't want to go to any fortune teller anymore as I don't want to get predicte.I'm scared to know whats going ahead.I rather wait and not spoil it.I'm comfy waiting better than knowing it already and just waiting for it to happen.

I do not. I am a pretty skeptical, though I would say open minded, guy. The problem with it is two-fold for me. For one, I read and listen to a lot of science (even though my degree is in English, but whatever haha) and the ability to predict the future would basically violate the law of causality, well, that is unless you just think you have no actual control over your own actions. Secondly, nothing ever seems to come out completely clear: most of us will lose someone in the next six months depending on how you define lose. Someone could move away, someone could die, you could break up with someone, or even have a fight with a friend. I guess it comes down to the fact that I have just never had an experience that led me to believe such things exist. *shrugs* Maybe I am just a party pooper.

I too do have seconds thoughts about believing but just the approach of the person who predicts about my life is when he he touched my hand and told me I do have scoliosis,that's a bit creepy for me as it's true and accurate and he never ask a word since it's the first time I meet him.Weird or?

Fortune teller uses are a lot of forms to say that they can "predict". There are the likes of cards, crystal balls and palms. They claim that they can see the future of the person in front of them. I do not have any experience yet in fortune tellers that foresee future things and future life. I only had an experience long time a ago about personality analysis and I believe it is better than fortune telling. It is telling and mirroring who you are and what are the best chances and best options you can have regarding your own personality traits and auras. If given a chance, I don't like to see or consult a fortune teller. Do I believe them? I can not comment for something I did not personally experience yet. I have read that there are fortune tellers who are really good and their mystical powers are influenced by something "divine", whatever that really means.... I think it is just better for me to stick in guessing what lies ahead in my near future.

I believe in "Astrology". If some one predicts, and if it does not happen, that is the fault of the person who predicted. Not the fault of "Astrology". Astrology is a very systematic subject, developed many cebturies ago. I have had astrological predictions from astrolgers of the West and the East. The predictions were amazingly correct.

Hiya ins, Was I scared when I was told a lot of things to me no not at all. I just could not wait for them to happen in a way. Of course those were the good things I am talking about. No one wants the bad things to happen ever do they? At least twice or three times maybe they have been right. But most are not. I donĀ“t really believe in it altogether but a few of them are really genuine. The genuine ones are the ones that never ask you the questions they tell you and what could happen.

I was so dependent with fortune telling before wherein I used it as a guide for my lovelife but I only realized it that we make our own destiny. Though there are times when the fortune teller may say something and coincidentally, it also happens like days from now, will somehow touch your belief that it is after all true - their fortune telling. Just have faith. And everything in your heart's desires will come. Surprisingly in a good way.

I have had quite a few readings done over the years. Some of them brought issues to the surface that I needed to think about, but none of them really "predicted the future". I think that's what the tarot is truly for, to seek enlightenment about things in your life that you need to work on, not necessarily telling you what the future is. Sometimes I've gotten readings that make absolutely no sense. Other times I have gotten them and had nothing come to pass that was predicted. It's hard to know if it truly is an oracle or not, in my personal experience.

Hi, In my whole life, I never been to fortune teller before and I don't think I have the courage to go there too. Because I am so scare if the fortune teller is telling me something not good happened in my life,then I can live happily. So to play safe, I betetr don't know what is happening in my future and treasure what I have now and carry on with my current life.

i dont believe it like my future depended on it but i treat it like a reference. If the fortune teller predicted that somethings good going to happen soon i say to myselft it happens it happens.

To be true...I'm interested a lot in Fortune telling..But I never give my hand to other person to say about my future..Because I don't want anyone to say anything bad about my love life... If anything they said and it become true means , I will feel a lot..I don't want to lose my love..I'm afraid of only this thing..otherwise I will never neglect to see my future..I'm very much sensitive so I don't want to take any risk in love.. Happy mylotting

Nooooooooooooooooo...Don't believe it!!!! I believe we construct our future everyday, because a decision can turn things differents. I believe in God and having a mission on Earth...I believe in reincarnation and on second chances to be better...

I don't believe in fortune telling because that practice is not from GOD. I have tried it when I was a teenager and some of the negative predictions scared me because it lingers in my mind. But thank GOD, i come to know HIM and found out that HE alone holds our future.

In my case it is 50 - 50. I dont believe and sometimes I do. I generally dont accept negative things. If it is positive, I will surely take it up. Always think of positive. Dont be scared thinking of the impact. It may not be the same always.

I have never been to a fortune-teller for something, but my mother did. It was well predicted about the past and the present and future. But that was many many years ago when my mother went to a fortune-teller. I got to know the fortune-telling from my mother. I think that it could be true if one could predict something related to the past, present and even the future. If we care too much about it, it would affect our normal life. So it is better not to let it bother our present life because we are living in the present. Enjoy yourself, insulin.

I am a skeptic on some levels but willing to give it a try. I have an online friend who tells fortunes as part of her online job and at times I am so tempted to do it. I would be highly skeptical of someone off of the street though. I use to date a Wiccan and he was constantly getting his palm read and his tea leaves as well. I also had a friend and neighbor who blew $200 at some fake fortune teller to get some ex boyfriend of hers back...... needless to say there are alot of fakes and phonies out there. Perhaps one day I will do it and get it over with.. perhaps not.
