I read an article yesterday about a reporter who had visited the spiritual community of Lily Dale. She had gotten a Psychic reading and was totally flabbergasted by the results. Now let me say this; I have NEVER believed in Psychic readings, by that mambo jumbo as I call it, however, a year ago, I was in and around this area so I thought I would stop in and see if I could fool them.
First off, I thought it would just be amusing, and secondly, I had read that it is a beautiful and very friendly community so I decided to check it out.
The community is located in the Western New York area, and has a population of around 275 people who dedicate their lives to the betterment of society by helping others around them.
The community has many mediums, spiritualists, and folks dedicated to help others through their readings. Knowing that I wanted to “test their powers”, I didn’t call ahead so they could check me out through the internet.
Many homes there have open readings so I found one with an open sign and went inside. The woman who greeted me was a warm and friendly woman about 35, and when I asked for a reading, she immediately agreed.
My intent was to basically say nothing and let THEM do the talking with me nodding yes or no. Right away, she started with. “ You have just lost someone you love recently”. I thought, “who hasn’t”. Let me just say here that it WAS true, though, my aunt Carol had just passed and I loved her very much.
A tear came to my eye as she spoke about this and then she said, “ your aunt Carol is here beside you and is saying to be careful, you are on a dangerous path like your mother and will come into hard times unless you change”.
Next, she said my mother was in the room and was saying that she apologized to me for the way she had treated me as a child. Well, I lost it, I started to sob. The psychic said that she was always with me as was my aunt Carol, and to turn to them for strength.
Then, the most amazing thing happened, she said my dad was present. He was telling me to be strong, live the straight and narrow lifestyle,, and to follow his lead in life. He said his reward was well worth his efforts.
At that point she said they had left, I was left drained, sad, and amazed. I had said NOTHING, and yet, she had told me my whole life story. How COULD she have known all of this? I was flabbergasted.
I will say this, if you are ever in upstate NY, go to Lily Dale, stop in, and have a reading. It changed one MAJOR skeptic into a sobbing mess of jelly.
