Anyone who wants to spend money trying to commune with dead relatives has never had so much choice.
There’s a growing array of satellite TV channels, Web sites, phonelines and even psychic churches which offer the services of mediums.
But from next month, spiritualists will have to abide by strict new consumer protection regulations that are designed to give clients greater safeguards.
Read News: Go to Reuters
Having grown up in the world of spiritualism it was always the norm to myself. One of the first things that a SNU medium will say is i won’t predict when working. 9 times out of 10 that is the first thing they do. Contacting loved ones maybe, but to predict is opening doors of hope to vulnerable and gullible people. Many use this information to forge on with their lives looking for the prediction to come to light. This destroys confidence and self esteem leading to depression, self harm and possible suicide. All mediums whatever they believe all give unproven predictions and have such power over the clients they read for. Regulation and or some type of accreditation must happen to safeguard the public. Not to mention the financial prosperity of the phonelines who use the entertainment ploy to push more unproven readings. One particular company also runs a one to one sex chat line from the same building in London. Need i say more.
It is with interest in uniformity and fairness that I ask the question:
“If the new legislation is to keep people (in this instance psychics) honest, then when will this legislation be passed on to those people entrusted with more important things than the services that psychics offer? It would be nice to know that forecasting and promise-making by financial advisors, investors, civil servants, doctors and politicians to name a few, would be enforceable by law if their ‘predictions’ failed to meet up with reality!”
Oh, now its a different story hey? Well, actually no, it’s not.
Everyone can have a ‘bad hair day’, psychics included, and NO! I am NOT a psychic. I am just bemused at the rants and raves of controllers in positions of power who make and apply these laws and ‘ethics’ that they mete out to others yet do not apply these same laws and ethics to themselves.
Let’s get with the program, and change things by stopping hypocrisy and taking care of how we personally conduct ourselves. Who knows, it might just spread!
