Why Are so Many Psychics Right Wingers?
A few days ago I did a Google search for 'Psychic Trump 2019', just to get a feel for what others in the New Age community might be saying about what might be happening.
I got a lot of links to sites that promote a much different view of the future than found on here. Come to think of it, they have a far different take on our present as well. Some just seem adulatory toward Trump; he is 'surviving' his enemies and will make us great, etc. Many are predicting his vindication. I did not find one site that has the blunt honesty this one does.
I know a lot of so called 'psychics' are frauds. The ones who seem to be in-house writers for the tabloids are like that. If they actually have clients they are wealthy people looking for financial tips. I'm very appreciative of this forum and all the contributors. Keep being a light of truth in this dark time.
Welcome, Martin! i have also noticed a lot of right-wing "psychics" online. You don't have to be psychic (or even be half intelligent) to see that the (p)Resident is a fraud. The fact that his base cannot, or will not recognize this, makes them look like the biggest $ucker$ on the planet. These folks actually vote to have their air and water polluted, so that the 1% can get even richer, as they destroy the healthcare that these easy "marks" are going to need even more in the future as a result of these policies. So, yeah, it's just natural for them to attract shysters. Vultures gotta vultch
I've found the right wing psychic phenomena online too. At first it confused me a lot, I had to step back and reexamine my own biases and then take a look at factual evidence to see what is real and what isn't. I am an unabashed lefty, and I make no apologies for it, but I also go on facts. Case in point - Jeanne has been predicting for some time an economic downturn around 2019-2020. You honestly don't have to be a psychic to see that coming. I picked up a copy of the economist over Christmas and it predicted the same thing as a result of the tariffs, tax cuts and the overall volatility of his orangeness. My husband also works in the financial sector and has a finance and economics degree - he also sees this coming. Over thanksgiving he tried arguing with my right wing high school educated cousin about this (my cousin is convinced the tax cuts are good for everyone), but it's like yelling at a brick wall, nothing penetrates.
All of that said, I recently listened to Craig Hamilton Parkers predictions for the years ahead, and while he doesn't claim to be right wing his predictions often trend that way. He predicts that the economy will only keep getting better, no downturn at all.
So who's correct then? we all have our biases and psychic predictions should be able to transcend those and actually see what will happen. Jeanne has been correct so far in her financial predictions, while the right wing psychics tend not to be.
What their motives are I don't know. But I am wary of anyone who throws out cliched statements like "make america great again" and "destroy our enemies" without concretely explaining what they mean. Make America great how? What enemies. And if anyone mentions the evils of socialism, then I immediately know that they have listened to too much propaganda and any gifts they have are filtered through that lens and therefore not reliable.
this is my first time commenting on the forum but so greatly appreciate this space.
My two cents on the right wing psychic thing: some probably are more political operative than actual psychics, but lots of people are psychic but also bigoted or self centered or unable to see things other than those they want. Also bc psychics are human, it’s impossible to have no bias at all. But some people are off the charts. I have actually wondered often about how our biases shape psychic impressions and interpretations. Just my thoughts.
Happy new year all. And may sanity and decency and kindness supplant the darkness.
I also feel that some right wing psychics are political operatives but some are just right-leaning people. Bias does affect our readings, but there are ways to reduce it.
BTW, TNJ, welcome to our forum! Your thoughts are intelligent and they resonate with me.
Sometimes there is a quiet clarity that comes to me and it usually appears in an unexpected way. The uniqueness or unexpectedness of psychic messages is a sign that the reading is going to be accurate. We are reading energy in the future, not data from the past, so the future often comes in unexpected ways.
I've noticed that bias enters into the reading in that:
(1) we can read our fears or our desires, and
(2) we can only recognize something that's coming to us if we are going to be seeing it in the future. If we were watching FOX News exclusively last year, then there is a lot that happened in politics last year that we would not have seen. Fox filters out much of the unflattering news about the GOP, especially the President. We see the world we will be in, and if a person isn't going to know about what the Washington Post, CNN, The NY Times, and other mainstream news is reporting, then that person won't see it in advance.
I also notice that we see only at the level of our own vibration or maturity. My clients tell me about psychics they saw who told them that people were out to get them. These psychics may indeed be psychic -- it's not that hard to learn how to be psychic in just a few quick lessons -- but their level of consciousness is on the dark side. So buyer beware.
I remember a famous psychic who predicted Romney would win the 2012 election. I knew she must be a right winger. It was her wishful thinking of maybe too much FOX news.
It helps to meditate when asking for psychic information. You are less tapping on the noise in your head that is just old data bouncing around, and more on the energy that is out there.
P.S. I predicted Hillary would win in 2016 even though I never saw her winning in visions. So I made the same mistake that Sylvia Browne made when she predicted Romney for 2012. The Psychic Twins also predicted Hillary, and frankly, it makes me like them more. Almost all of my students predicted Hillary except a small group of beginners I taught one night a week before the election.
They all saw Trump. Why? because they were new to the timeline meditation and had a clarity that comes from the beginner mind.
I did see Trump at the Inauguration in visions six months before the election but interpreted his presence as being in spirit not in body on the platform.
I also saw in that same vision Obama standing downstage on the platform with huge full-bodied angel wings and facing the crowd sending compassion and healing to the people.
I didn't understand why he was doing that. Then the day before the Inauguration Obama appeared in a video that people should not worry because he would be with us every step of the way. I sobbed when I watched that video.
I later came to believe that it was an angel channeling itself to us through Obama. But when I saw that vision six months earlier, I had no idea what it meant, only that the angel was sending healing to everyone.
How to protect from these errors? Try to stay open to what we see. Try not to do too much interpretation, just report the visions.
And meditate more.
My best readings have come during meditation retreats. I'm going on one the first week of February.
What I wanted to say in a post is that I get the feeling that all those right winged psychics, that just recently showed up, I think they are plants from trolls that are designed to fool people. I can’t imagine that there are any people undecided concerning trump, however, I feel that the right winged psychics are on the internet the same way trump paid rally goers to attend his rallies. They are bogus, but there is no way to take them down. They are there so someone can tell trump (who uses his questionable psychic ability) that many, many psychics are saying that he will be re-elected, etc. It is sad to say, but Facebook is now admitting that they cannot get rid of the trolls or “fake news” posted by trump trolls. I think we have Russia to thank for these types of posts.
I have never really considered myself to be a true psychic, but that's not quite true. I just know things sometimes. I’ve never done anything with it. Guess I should start training. But anyway, I broke with tradition of never posting to state the above.
I hadn't really noticed any far-right physics myself (noticed one, once, and he didn't make any sense to me). I have to wonder if our hard working and meticulous friends in Russian Military Intelligence haven't noticed the psychic community predicting doom and gloom for Trump and have created their own counter narrative?
Thank you for the welcome, Jeanne, and for all you do here and in general.
Funny, I re-read a post by psychic Betsey Lewis, who seems to get some things right, but also said the Kavanaugh accusations are "fake news" and that Nancy Pelosi would not become speaker again, and other gems. But she's not the only one like this. In fact, a woman I like and care about very much, who is a very good psychic generally, has some pretty out there, scary, super right-wing beliefs. Still always amazes me when I hear about this kind of dichotomy - to be so accurate about some things and then to fail to see the things (e.g., Trump's unfitness) that one need not be psychic to pick up on (understatement). But people's biases really serve as lenses that can distort psychic and mundane info.
Re: the Hilary prediction, I had an interesting experience in the summer of 2016, before Trump "won" the nomination. I remote viewed a target that had been set up by a prominent RVer for those listening to his lecture to view (the lecture had been recorded). It was associative remote viewing (ARV) with two outcomes. The question was who would become president (not win the election, interestingly). The two options were Hilary Clinton, and Someone Other Than Hilary Clinton. (for those unfamiliar with ARV, each possible outcome is paired with a photo site that is a stand in for the outcome).
I was very new to RV at the time, and not practiced. My image was extremely clear, however. I saw/felt HRC nearby, but otherwise, basically my sketches and descriptions were eerily accurate for the photo representing "Someone other than HRC" winning.
I felt sick. I also assumed I must be wrong, because she seemed so likely to win. I threw out my sketches figuring they were either crap or something I didn't want to deal with.
The results of those dozen or so people who had already viewed had been compiled, and the group was pretty split in their results, just FYI. It was a target that was not easy to view well (or, perhaps the group was so split because there were technically two right answers: HRC actually won (the popular vote), and DJT won by electoral college and via Russian intervention.
My own bias led me to push away what I saw, which was accurate (but not logical). Will def be more thoughtful going forward.
All best to you and everyone here.
Many years ago when Llewellyn Publishing was putting out a magazine they used to have a British astrologer doing a column on current events. It was marred for me by his incredible bias. He really had it in for Bill Clinton, Democrats and leftists in general . I wrote them more than once suggesting they get him to tone things down. I pointed out that he was supporting the same goals as many of the Religious Right who were bedeviling New age people. He finally went too far when he did column predicting Clinton's utter defeat in the next election. After looking at his data I was astounded- he'd used the first Tuesday in November in.. 1995. A full year before the actual date. I called the editor who seemed shocked when she saw I was right. I was apparently the first reader who noticed. I think the column ran another issue then vanished.
I think his emotions got in the way. It happens often and easily. We all need to guard against it.
I hate to admit it, but in the past I have gotten into email arguments with some of these alt-right psychics about their predictions/pro-Trump anti-Hillary stance/lies. These are psychics who preach about being light workers and say how 'we all need to raise our vibrations' bla bla bla, then in the same sentence say they see Trump is going to make our country great again because he's so smart and such a good businessman, etc. sigh. Now I just send them love and light as I see getting into a verbal fight isn't helpful to anyone, especially to me! I do think these right-wing 'psychics' have an agenda AND they are being paid to spew this nonsense - especially about Qanon.
It's still troubling to me that they are blatantly lying, but so many people are stuck in fear and only want to believe what they want to believe - no matter how illogical it is - like the soy bean farmers who can't sell their crops because of the tariffs Trump has imposed, yet they still support Trump because they believe he will somehow protect them. And you can't change their minds, even when they are being financially destroyed because of him! I guess that's the path they chose - to be willfully blind and they will wake up to reality only when they are ready to wake up. Then the saying 'fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me' comes to mind. Everyone has lessons to learn, and evidently being gullible and naive is a big lesson many people are currently learning. A Vedic astrologer I follow said 'discernment about what is true and what is false is one of the most important qualities a person can have'.
Numerologist, I resonate with your thoughts. Way back in high school fifty years ago I read George Orwell’s allegorical novella Animal Farm and this masterpiece keeps coming to mind as these rising authoritarians have gained power in the US.
Animal Farm was about Stalin’s reign, but as in any masterpiece, Orwell captured the essence of the human psyche which will play out again and again throughout history.
There was a work horse on the farm who believed in the fascist pigs who had taken over. He believed in them in spite of the evidence that they were behaving as elitist as the farmer who animals had overthrown.
Near the end when the horse was old and no longer useful to the pigs they loaded him onto the back of a truck to cart him off to the slaughterhouse where he’d be turned into soap.
It wasn’t until he was locked into the truck that he realized their plans for him. I think of that horse when I see MAGA hat-clad spectators at Trump’s rallies.
Paul I agree wiht you. I have been googling psychic predictions at the beginning of every year for at least the last five years, the increase in the number of right leaning reading has grown considerably. By the way I would like to know what anyones impressions of Hamilton Parker are. He gives me the creeps when I look at him, like there is something insincere about him.
Another interesting item, there is a Tarot/intuitive I follow regularly who has proof her you-tube account has been tamered with. Her "watched/liked" numbers have been changed after the fact. Very weird.
