She asked for Emily's photo. I handed her my phone. She stared at the screen and told me to say Emily's full name and birthday, then looked up at me. My heart dropped—would my face betray something?—and immediately jumped back into my chest when she told me she could feel Emily's presence and that she was happy. In a new development, Emily had "passed on" and become my guardian angel.

The Clairvoyance meaning is the psychic gift of being able to see images or pictures in the mind’s eye. People who have the psychic skill of Clairvoyance are able to see images in their mind, gaining insight and information this way through an object, person or location. Clairvoyance is thought to be an extra sensory awareness, meaning it is in addition to our five normal senses of sight, touch, sound, taste and smell.


So, there you have it, my first (and probably last, since I'm apparently shitlisted) foray into psychic-busting. I'm not going to tell people to stop seeing psychics - if it makes you happy and you have the cash, go wild. Whether you go in as a believer or as a shithead like me, the psychics are the ones making bank, so either way, in the end, they win. And who knows, maybe I have a sister I don't know about whose birth and death dates I guessed right, in which case, I should set up my own psychic shop. I'm sure Emily would approve.

Text chat readings are nice for short, quick questions. They give you immediate answers and are very convenient. They are not necessarily good for long, involved questions, though, because texting is generally slower than talking. You also do not have the advantage of the personal contact that would be available over the phone or video chat. Also, while there is always a danger of becoming dependent on a clairvoyant or other psychic, the danger is increased with text readings. This is because of the ease and immediacy of these types of readings.
