Ann George Studios, Inc. has an excellent reputation.

Recently a long time client asked how she could now refer her friends to me. She told me that when she entered my name into the search engines she encountered two outrageous posts about my services on the " Rip Off Report ". There she found some abusive posts about my psychic services on "The Rip Off Report" I was already familiar with this site that allows people to post anonymous, and often very false complaints about business of any kind. As well, the site also must make money with affiliate advertising, because as you roll over a link, there is a little pop up ad that displays the very kind of service the consumer is complaining about. I did my due diligence to report to that sites web host that the information posted about me was false, and defamatory I had also received an e-mail from a company informing me of a very defamatory report at that site & offering to "repair" my reputation for a fee. I suspect that the company offering help is in

Fears About Seeing the Future - Concerns for a First Reading

I had a very interesting conversation yesterday with a woman who was considering having her first Tarot reading. She shared a concern that I have heard over the years, and I want to blog about this topic while our conversation is still fresh in my mind. The concern she voiced was: "If one does see the future, can what is revealed become a self-fulfilling prophecy?" I hope my reply yesterday was thorough & useful. Here are more thoughts on the subject. Wikipedia has an excellent article on the idea of a self fulfilling prophecy which includes the following: "In other words, a prophecy declared as truth when it is actually false may sufficiently influence people, either through fear or logical confusion, so that their reactions ultimately fulfill the once-false prophecy." Now before I go into the specifics of my reply, I must first say that I am not a prophet. I do not ever intend that the readings I offer be taken as final, absolute, dictatorial.. or in

Psychic Scams - More thoughts on a sensitive subject

I have reviewed my past two articles on psychic scams, and double checked the information posted on the links I included in the last post. I notice that one post seems to take a bit too much pleasure in calling one reader a fraud. The evidence of the "fraud" is that the reader made a mistake during a public reading. Mistakes happen. No reader is 100% accurate, 100% of the time. To expect a human being to always perfectly see the past, present of future of the live or lives of another is just not reasonable. Even the best reader, with the best intention will find some clients difficult to read. As well, those who come to a session to play "trick the psychic" make it impossible for a reader to see clearly. For example, if you already know the answer to the question you are about to ask a professional reader, why bother asking? What purpose could that serve. (If you are seeking deeper insight into the how, or the why of something.. seeking clarity, then of cours

Tarot Consultations Only - Ethics of a Professional Reader

I have received several emails lately from new visitors to my website asking if I will perform rituals for them. In particular, I have been asked to do rituals for success, to reunite lost loves, to bring money, and to break up relationships. I do not now, nor have I ever offered services of this kind. I do not do "work" and have published many articles written to help new clients better understand the the power to change our lives rests with in each of us. We are the magic, we create the future, we can change so much about our lives when we have some clarity, insight and direction. An ethical Tarot consultation can indeed offer that clarity and an out picturing of the future outcome of our actions. I provide Clairvoyant Tarot readings by appointment. The fees for my services are clearly stated, and don't change. You receive the reading you pay for, one which offers many benefits . I have written many articles, some in this blog, others on my site, that address th

The Sacred Trust - Ethics of a Professional Tarot Consultant

Recently, I had a curious friend ask me a question about a my reading process, and in particular about the kinds of things that occur in a reading. I realized that it may be time again to post more information about my values as a reader so that others can know my thoughts on the Sacred Trust. Those words may sound dramatic, or self important, which is not at all my intention. Rather, the words "Sacred Trust" reflect my deep sense of gratitude to the oracle of Tarot, my respect for the seekers, and an abiding commitment to keep the confidences entrusted to me by my clients. I mention my gratitude to Tarot as it is this mystic device, this ancient book of mirrors that made it possible for me to gain mastery over my clairvoyant "gift", which I assure you, when running wild is no gift at all. Unbridled clairvoyance in my experience was a kaleidoscope of information that served no one. It is the Tarot that made it possible to serve the public. For me, the Tarot
