Advice from Starwitch on Life, Love,
Money, Spells, and everything else.
A psychic is telling me that I am cursed, possessed,
He also keeps asking for money. How do I know if what he says is true?
I am from Belgium and I have family in Morocco, so on vacation I visit
my family's country a lot. I found out that someone in Morocco bewitched
me and my family's home many years ago, but we didn't know this until we
visited some wizard in Morocco. He says that I'm cursed with spells of
hate. That means that everyone in my house hates each other, and there
is always fighting. It's a mess. And the wizard says that someone did a 24
knots curse on me. He said the curse (the rope with the knots) is hidden in Morocco. He knows where it is but he
doesn't want to tell me where it is or who cursed me. He always asks me
for money, but next time he tells me another story, and asks me for
money again. So it is not worth it to pay, because he says nothing then
lies. Sometimes he says that I am possessed, then he says that I am
So my question is, do
you know something to break the spell and tell me who cursed me?
Can you give me advice as to how to to know if I'm possessed or
Note from Starwitch:
Before I go on my psychic-bashing spree below, I want to tell you that I'm having second thoughts about
psychics right now. I realized that if I called a psychic, and she
told me what I wanted to hear, that knowing that would make me look
forward to it. And if mind power is real, and I guess I still believe it
works, then just expecting something to happen could make it happen. So
then maybe going to a psychic is like prayer or spells to some
people. They use it to plan their future. But
sadly, there are many people who are completely dependent upon psychics
for their day to day decisions. There are actual support groups for
I'm so glad that you wrote to me and asked me about your situation.
There is something very important I need to tell you. The psychic that
you spoke with is a con artist. He's flat-out lying to you. This is the oldest
psychic trick in the world. Many psychics use scam people out of their
money by telling them they've been cursed. I even wrote a page about this trick on my
website so people wouldn't be scammed by these con artists.

This page has many personal stories from people who have been the
victim of so-called "psychic" con artists. It's a great page to read to get
an idea of what signs to look for. (Pretty much the sign in front of
their store that says
"Psychic" should be your warning to turn and run the opposite
I used to believe that some psychics
were real but I've never spoken to one who was accurate about me or
my future. If anyone wants to prove that they can truly do psychic
readings, please feel free to contact me. If you can prove it to my
satisfaction I'll promote you on my website so that my visitors
have someone legit to go to. I really do want to believe. I
believe that psychic power exists because I have experienced it myself
and I've known others who had it. I just don't think "psychic readers"
are true psychics. I think they are mostly cold readers. We believe it's
true because we want so badly to believe that we can have control over
our lives somehow. That they can show us what's coming next or force
something to happen the way you want it too. But life doesn't really
work that way.
It's important to understand that
even when a psychic says something that's true for you (such as that you
have hatred and fighting in your family) those are the kinds of things
that apply to almost everyone in the world. How many people do you know
who DON'T have fighting in their
family? And if he has already
lied to you once, then you know he could be lying about everything, and
he almost certainly is. Please don't ever go to a
psychic again. They really can't tell you anything that's going to fix
For an example of a typical
psychic reading script,
(most of them use scripts when they are "reading" you), please
look at this reading
that a psychic gave me for free through email. Maybe that's why it's called a "Psychic Reading"... because
it's a "psychic" who is "reading" a piece of paper to you. She sent this extremely
long email only minutes after I requested the free reading. Obviously,
she couldn't have written anything this long in that short amount of

I want to reassure you that there is NOT a curse on your family or your
home. The scam that your psychic is using is a very common trick that a
large number of psychics use.
I realize some areas of the world have a
deeper belief in magic than we do here in the states. They tend to
view the world in magical terms, with evil spirits playing an important
role in their lives. They feel the need to ward off evil more than
Americans do. Most Americans are less superstitious and we tend to be
I personally believe that psychics are a total waste of money. I warn
people against using them. I have been to four psychics. One of the
"psychics" I went to had been highly recommended by the author of an
inspiring book I had been reading. The author didn't mention the
psychics name, only that the reading she gave him was so accurate and
that it changed his life and matched him up with his soulmate. So I actually emailed the author and asked him who
the psychic was. He gave me her contact information and I purchased an expensive
reading from her over the phone.
I recorded the entire reading on a voice
recorder and later transcribed it (if you want to read it, you can).
None of what she said came true. It was all lies. When I read over her
script I can see that I was telling her everything she needed to know in
order to "read" me. (I was "leading" her, as they say.) It was pretty
simple to see. Most people can't comprehend how easy it is for a clever
person to pretend that they are psychic and that they know something
about you. I could pretend that I'm psychic right now and you want to
believe in psychics so badly that you would easily believe me. I could
charge you hundreds of dollars and tell you nothing of any value. That's
exactly what all the psychics do.
Want to know how fake they are? Just apply for a
job as a psychic reader at one of the psychic websites and then
they'll send you the script to use and they'll teach you how to
pretend like you're giving readings to people.
Don't be fooled. Keep your money. If
you insist on paying someone else to tell you how to run your life, get
a therapist. At least they went to college.
