Have you ever been to see a Clairvoyant? Ever had your fortune told by the Tarot cards or the crystal ball? Read your horoscope? There are few of us that can answer no, to one or more of these questions. What did you feel about the reading after you had paid your money and made your way back to your home? Perhaps to listen to a tape about your reading!

Were you happy with it? Were you disappointed with it? Did you think the reader was very good, or very bad? Maybe you went home in awe of this person who you thought was so gifted they could see right into your very soul? Or so it seemed! Maybe you even wished you had the gift yourself!

The saddest thing is that the profession is wide open to, and attracts so many crackpots and cranks, that it is very hard to sort out the wheat from the chaff and find a genuine clairvoyant. When you do, you have found a rare jewel indeed. Getting to know them, you will realise not only are they reluctant to give a reading at times, but they never consider their talent Œa gift, as so many people call it. You should never push them to give you a reading. There is always a reason why and you should accept it, or expect a Œless than the best reading they could give you when they listen to their own vibrations.

The reason is that when a true Clairvoyant is Œtuned in, there is very little they can do but Œgo with the flow. What they receive may not be what you want to hear, because they cannot simply ask questions to Œorder etc. What you will hear will be true and you can receive guidance for your future. What most people do not understand is that we have Œchoices in life. The clairvoyant simply tells you of the probabilities. So that you can be aware, and avoid any bad mistakes you might make without the subsequent knowledge of events crossing your path.

I am fortunate enough to have met a few true Clairvoyants and I am able to Œknow a shonky crank when I meet one. I know simply because I am a sensitive myself. One thing I will tell you without question the so called, “gift” is an unwanted gift! In the early stages of development there is little control. It has to be learnt! This means that anything and everything can be Œpicked up from your vibrations. Things like accidents, death, or even the overpowering thoughts of fear of the passengers of an aircraft as it plummets to the earth killing all on board.

Yes! It is true, that was one of my own early experiences of my Œgift.

Most true Clairvoyants can recount an early horrendous prophecy, or happening. Most will not tell you very much about it. There is no way a sensitive will do harm to anyone, or gain for themselves from their Œgift. It is an unwritten rule that every sensitive accepts without question. A true sensitive takes development lessons and learns to control. They learn to Œswitch off. This is the most valuable lesson of all, because being Œswitched on all the time would undoubtedly lead to insanity. This may explain a lot of the tragedies of the past in the Clairvoyants world.

So once again I ask you. ŒDo you really want to know? Why is the human race so inquisitive about the future? Why are some of us born with the so-called Œgift, the unwanted gift? I have asked this question many times during my lifetime, but I have found no answer to it.

When I consider all the frightening experiences I encountered before I understood my Œgift and learned to control it. I can honestly say that given the option I would say Œ”No thank you”. I would rather have the teddy bear!

Oh dear I should stop writing as I will have a phone call anytime to say my nephew has arrived on the earth. Clairvoyance? No! My sister rang me last night to say baby is on the way. I hope he is lucky enough to be born without the unwanted gift….

Violet Apted

My name is Violet and I have two daughters and one son who have given me five adorable grandchildren. I have been freelance writer and tutor at U3A creative writing for 8 years as well as Writing forum host on 50plus website for 10 years and am now retired. I enjoy writing, using the computer and music and my dream would be to take a world cruise, as I have a love of the sea and also to write a bestseller! I’ve travelled to Egypt, Asia, Europe, USA, the UK and Africa but am originally from Sussex and lived in Kent before I moved to Australia in 1976 where I live in Brisbane. I am a contributing author in the book ‘FORGETMEKNOTS FROM THE FRONT PORCH’ published in USA last year by Obadiah Press. I have completed my first novel, a Murder abduction story and it is now published. All my books are available on as well as FaceBook. My favourite writing would be Children’s stories and I have written many for my grandchildren. Two are now published!

  1. I do read my horoscope (not daily but when I get my weekly magazine – English Womans Weekly) but when working in the UK many years ago another female who worked there was reading palms so I had mine done too. She said I would remarry (not something on my wish list!) would go overseas (yippee a holiday but no, she said to live!!!!) and that there would be 2 1/2 children!!! When I asked how I was to have 1/2 a child she just said that’s what was in my palm. Well, I met my Aussie hubby and we moved to Oz and I did lose a little one before having my second son – so all came true!

    • Same with me a Polish man read my palm, he had never seen me, he told me of a serious illness i had at 20, and that i had three children, he also predicted a life of travel. Right on all counts.

    • My aunt went to a clairvoyant when she was first expecting and the woman said she saw a small white coffin. Luckily my aunt took it with a grain of salt and had a perfectly normal healthy baby now in their 70s.

  2. Have been to many, and many use different modalities, some true others rubbish, the best are generally word of mouth referrals. Going to another one this week
    Don’t put too much store in what you are told, just go with the flow or it can control your life
    Don’t expect too much from magazine canned stars for everyone bunched together or trade shows and markets

  3. Did that sort of thing when I was young (reading my horoscope etc). Would rather go with the flow and take things as they come now. As an example my mother had alziemers and I know we can be tested for it – would I? No way! Or not until they have some type of intervention or cure.

  4. I have been to several but two were very good. One was a German woman in Adelaide called Anna, about forty years ago, who (among other things) correctly told me the personalties and future life paths of my FIVE children (even though I only had four at that stage) and she was correct about all five. The other was Charmaine Wilson (she won The One on TV). She doesn’t tell the future but relays messages from the ‘other side’. She picked me out of a large crowd and I have no doubt at all that she was talking to my mother because she said things only mum would know. I went to Anna out of curiosity. I went to see Charmaine when she had a show at a nearby town because I was having difficulty coming to terms with mum’s passing. It gave me a lot of peace.

  5. have been twice,loved the one in Brisbane cant remember the name but she answered some importment things for me.i felt better after I was with her.did not ask about my future.

  6. I like it for a bit of fun 🙂 I did go to one when I was in my twenties and was told there would be many men in my life, not so. She said my husband and I would live into our eighties and have back problems. My husband died at 67 with cancer. I am still going at 69 but I do have a bad back because of osteoporosis 🙂

  7. The fakes prey on people who are in a transition stage of life, losing a love or a divorce. They are wondering what the future holds.
