I have had a remarkable increase in calls from worried or frightened people who have been victimized by con artists posing as psychics. Many of my callers (men and women from all walks of life and every age) have spent a good deal of money before they realize they are being “conned” or “played”.
It is very important to remember that we are blessed to have gifted people in this world who are able to see the past, present and future. Quantum physics, multiverse theories, advanced math and studies on time constantly prove the mystic nature of life.
There is no shame in believing in the mystic, magic or paranormal events of any kind. We do live in a magical universe. We always have. As well, many of us “have a feeling” that something is going to happen - and then - it does.
Anyone with an open spiritual world view who is approached (now by email or phone!!) by a scam artist working the psychic con might listen a minute to see or hear what the con artist has to say. People who make a living as “flim flam” artists or con artist are very, very good at their jobs. They can be very convincing.
Sometimes, just giving your birth date (please don’t) to a scam artist will give that person the ability to gain enough information about your nature. If that person knows your name, gender and can guess your age - they have all they need to set the bait.
These charlatans usually work the con by telling you enough about yourself to gain your trust. They will then see your “troubles” and promise that they can fix things for you. They may sell you a reading to be sure they can “see” everything that is troubling you.
Trusting that the con artist really can do magic for you, and really will solve your problems through the use of spiritual powers is a lovely idea. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend a bit of money and have your loved one return? or to have good luck gambling? or get a better job?The next step is the candle burning sales pitch. The price of the candles you need to buy vary but some sell for as little as $100 a candle up to $300 or more. The candle may need to be burned in a special place (graveyard, church overseas, a ritual temple of some kind) and can only be burned for you by the psychic.
We create our futures by thought, word and deed, and we are the ones who must work to change those futures. Every action has a consequence. That is that. This candle burning con unfolds most often as follows:
Additional charges can add up quickly. The reason is that con artist who work this trick are very good at earning your trust, they are also very good a scaring you!! If you stop the “work”, then something could go very wrong! You could be in danger. Or....
- Your problem is much more serious that he or she thought!
- You must purchase more candles, more expensive candles to solve the problem.
- A special ceremony must be done, and it is very expensive, to solve the problem.
- You did not follow the psychics instructions properly (these cons often require you to participate in some way) and so you have ruined the “work”.
- Your problem will be solved, just wait!!
- You need another reading to see what has happened, to see what else is wrong.
There might be black clouds in your aura, you could have a curse on you, you could have someone who worked roots on you, you could be haunted…… and on…… and on.
I am writing to help those who are about to step into this game stop now. I am writing for those who see themselves in this trap and are afraid to stop paying. I am also writing to say that yes, there are great shamans among us. Yes - sorcerers still roam the Earth…. and they understand full well the law of karma.
I has a woman call me today to ask if I make black candles (I do). She wanted to buy one for destruction! (I see black candles for protection.) It may seem ironic that I hand pour candles by the moon signs and am writing this article, however, I started to pour candle for clients to buy and to use for prayer and meditation because of this kind of scam.
I have been pouring candles by the moon signs for almost 20 years. There really is a time for every purpose under heaven, and knowing when to pour candles for prayer and meditation takes time & study and experience.
I sell candle to you! You buy them. You burn them. I include an affirmation, and encourage you to repeat it. You are the magic. The candle is your tool to help you heal yourself. The power to change your life rests with every thought, word and deed. You are far more powerful that you might imagine. Please don’t give that power away.
I also had a caller ask me if I was a “magic psychic”. I am not. I do not sell spell, I do not “do work”. If you feel you need some thing extra ordinary to happen to change your life, I do understand that.
I invite you to remember that you can change your future. An ethical reader will empower you to be able to do just that!
