Psychics canít believe the growth in their popularity
by Elspeth Newman
Jenny pulled a card from her tarot card deck. "The Four of Swords -- it's shown itself again," she said with a sigh. "I feel like there's a two-month period you're waiting for."
The beneficiary of Jenny's tarot reading, Samantha, had indeed just landed a temporary two-month job as an office manager in Sydney, to tide her over until University started.
Some may say that Jenny may have made a lucky guess, but more and more people are beginning to believe otherwise. In this unpredictable world, psychics are busier than ever.
Psychic readings are indeed changing said tarot reader Jenny. "I see more interest in long-range planning instead of love and 'will I live happily ever after?'"
Belief in the paranormal has also spread well beyond the small communities it use to be used in. A recent Gallup poll found that one in two Americans believes in extrasensory perception. Fifty-four percent believe in psychic or spiritual healing, and almost three in 10 say they believe in witches and the figures are higher for Australia.
"It's changing fast," says Jenny, a psychic reader for the Universal Psychic Guild, the largest of its type in the world. "We used to just get calls from a small circle of people who knew what we did and relied upon it, now its completely different. We have thousands of callers calling from all sorts of backgrounds and many many more professional people who are using our services to plan everything in their lives from business decisions to finding the right partner.
"We all knew that the world was becoming more spiritual, but none of us expected it to change so fast and for psychics to become so popular.
"I now have over 200 people I speak with on a weekly basis."
