We're not talking about Jesus; consider that he existed (if at all) in a different era.
I don't care if being a psychic is a gift or not. They should be able to charge for their services (in the loosest sense of the term)
After all, being a creative artist is a gift too so are they supposed to create great works for absolutely free?
The cost of living is expensive and there are bills to pay, if one cannot use their "gifts" as a means to earn a living then they may as well just give up and work for McDonalds or work in an office or someplace that doesn't require anything special except memorizing how to do repetitive tasks.
exactly my point, but expressed far better lol.
thank you ryu

The law of averages says that even one of these *snip* will win Lotto one day... There was no psychic prediction here.

"People will have to go elsewhere" it's amazing how money turns people into ar**holes..

And is it really fair That an apparent psychic won the lottery? She may of seen into the future? That's an unfair advantage hahaha

Well if you apply to every Euro Chance100 in the world, then yeah sure, you can increase your chances. But winning the lottery in any country is usually a one out of a million or billion chance.

Well duh, of course she would because people who claim to be psychics are either charlatans or just idiots who think their thoughts mean something. Hell, I'd pretend to be a psychic too because there's millions of gullible people out there who believe in such nonsense.

What's the percentage of psychics that win the lottery, as compared to the percentage of  non-psychics that win the lottery?

.

What does that have to do with what Simbi was saying?

If you do something from love, there is no retirement, especially if you have a "gift" to help people.

Retiring doesn't mean to stop doing what you know. It means to stop doing it as your job.

I used to read tarot cards, i never charged anyone for the readings and i had some accuracy at it  but i was taught that using  'the gift' as it was callled for myself in any way was to call down bad Karma on myself.  The worst bad karma i received from reading the cards was the day i was slapped silly by someone i did a reading for because the reading came true. she blamed me and my cards for what came true.

Ok I am now getting fed up with the bs...

First, I absolutely hate the term psychic even though I am considered by many to be a psychic medium. Why? It implies the ability to see not just the paranormal, past, and present... But the ability to see the future of which I cannot do and do not know anyone who can.

Second, pricing your services really depends on your services. Simply explained, if you're offering these services as a means to provide for yourself and/or family, by all means set your price. Now if you're offering these services cause you just want to help people you should NOT ask them to pay a fee. Accepting donations/tips from people you've helped is one thing, but someone really interested in helping others doesn't do so at a price.

NOTE: if you do have a price don't go claiming that you're in this line of work to help others, it's a vile and disgusting lie to tell.

Finally, regardless of who wins the lottery or what talents they might have, choosing to retire does not reflect any sort of ill intention. Truth be told, any person with half a mind that comes across such a substantial amount of money would retreat to there new dream life and let the world worry about itself. Lets face it, how many lottery winners have you seen helping others?

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.

A lot of people have had striking pre-cognitive dreams. I only mention this because it has happened to me once in my life, and I'll never forget it. I had a dream that I went to visit a stranger's house and he gave me and my friend a tour. Some months later, my friend said someone he knew had offered him a job in Utah and I was invited. We drove a U-Haul over there across a few states, and when we arrived the man gave us a tour of his house. The same tour from the dream.

I'll never forget this.

Yeah, I hear you on that. "Pure" spirituality would have no desire for money, or even material possessions beyond the basics.

Expect that we dont all live in a Free World. We Need Money, and Basic Material Possessions to Survive.

What's wrong with this? She just one 2.2 million! Anyone would leave their job of 40 years! She can retire now and just enjoy the money. The media needs to stay out of peoples buisness. And actually get a story on something that matters.

This isn't news, this is gossip.
