    Molten steel take from a former spirit worker whos still surrounded by spirit workers and psychics: if someone tells you that you can't get an answer yourself, they're not a real psychic. If someone tells you you'll need to pay to get that answer? They're scamming you.

    Can I admit something? Sometimes when I see women like my mom get so caught up in psychics, it makes me question if sexism is real and men have always been smarter than women.

    Most of these tv psychics are just in it for the money and research people in advance, as I see it many of them are BS artists who could not read their way out of a paper bag. I may believe in ghosts, the occult, certain things but many of these psychics are frauds.

    Psychic ability is real, but the industry that has latched onto it is a scourge.

    Just for the record, I do believe that psychics are real, but they choose not to monetize their gifts. Those who use their "abilities" for monetary gain are fakes

    Hahaha their psychic abilities don't include being able to forsee when they're about to be called out and humiliated on National Television! 😂

    "Mary Knows Best," and, "Hollywood Medium," on E, "Psychic Tia," on A&E, "Mama Medium," and, "Long Island Medium," on TLC.

    These channels CLEARLY have one particular target demographic.

    Amanda Berry's mother died before she escaped from her captivity, shortly after her false psychic reading from Sylvia Brown on Montel.

    Because of an irresponsible charlatan, she essentially passed away not knowing, but probably believing, that her missing daughter had, in fact, been killed by her abductor. Which was NOT the case!

    And, that makes Amanda's story EXCRUCIATINGLY tragic.

    The last time she saw her mom alive was from her captivity watching her mother being lied to by a con artist on National TV.

    Daytime TV is absolute POISON in American culture! Our grandparents, parents, stay at home wives husbands and significant others are ALL subjected to a daily barrage of the crap. And we wonder how someone like Donald Trump can become President! 😂

    Actually this part was intentionally fabricated. The real reason why Silvia Brown was censored for aired television was because she spoke of how my people were in the audience of Montel's show. So in order to get her to shut up. They took a Susan O'connor (real name) and paid her 20,000 dollars to pretend to be someone else just to make Silvia Brown seem so unethical behind the actual reasoning for why she was censored from being on national TV. The truth is Silvia Brown used hot reading to know that person was legitimately dead and the TVs no longer aired her because they were threatened by the U.S. Government. So yes, she is part of this game of being a "psychic," but you cannot honestly blame her when you have shit in America like pyramid schemes, faith-based marketing, the testament of greed (saying it is okay and even desirable to have wealth and more of it as a Christian), and everything else that is wrong with the United States that can easily be googled just by looking up either Trump, Carlson, Prager or Shapiro.
