Re: Pet Psychic Experience

For me, this all falls apart with the: The results were provided via 'transcript' of the 'remote' session/conversation with the Rb.

The emotional connections that Parrots have with 'their' Humans and their abilities to connect, play-off and react to our emotions is well known. For an unknown Human to make a remote connection with RB and not suffer remote wounds is difficult for me to believe.

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

See, Laura, that's the kind of experience (like the one I had) that just tells me it's okay to slow down (literally in your case, figuratively in mine) and just open our minds up a bt... remember the germs!

Tex, I'd try a psychic. Why not? I thik I can tell you the name of the lady's site in public. It's a public site, not competing with our Form in any way. It's "The Animals Tell me", with Eileen Leskovic.

Thank you, Scott. Yeah, again, today's spirits are tomorrow's germs, right? Thank you for that. I am planning on returning for at least one more reading. And this time, I'll pay for it!

Christa, that is so beautiful. I'm sorry you missed that last goodbye, but hey, someday, maybe? Rico, you must have been (still are?) a real character.

Clark, buddy, I love ya back, but I'll probably go once more. I live in a family of scientists (heck, I even worked as one, very competently) but... like I said... tomorrow's germs? But thank you for jumping into the stream and swimming in a different direction. You CARE, and I thank you. If the Rb gives you a psychic bite, let me know. Okay, kidding! The one thing I will echo is what you said about trusting my bird over the psychic! You got it!

Thanks, friends. I appreciate the feedback!

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

I appreciate you getting something out of it but I can't support you giving up your own money for it.....buy rb a pet toy instead......


yes I'm the black sheep of this forum at times, (actually I try to be just for lulz) but sometimes I'm totally right!!!!!


At least if you go back say "I know your not psycic but you're pretty good with birds, what can you teach me? If she goes off into the spirit land of parrots I'll drop my conures price to $19.99 with a full guarantee.

people that exploit other people for monetary gain using...."magic" I do not approve of.


If it's for fun at a Renaissance festival, fine.....you know what your getting.....someone pretending to be a pet psychic taking advantage of people; I will not condone.

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

Gail, how incredibly moving!! I’m so glad you got something so cool from it.

Clark, secretly I’m with you and not something I’d spend my money on. But here’s what I’ve learned from life in all this psychic stuff. Whether it’s real or not, the positivity many people get from it is 1000000% real. Therefore, Who cares if they are legit? Let people spend their money.

Effective Therapy, great advice, or entertainment - whatever you call it, many are happier than when you left, and have left the session with some closure they may have needed, or didn’t even know they needed. Can’t complain about that.

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

I have seen a few of those 'aminal-mediums' in action (local tv, it was fad here a few years ago, to help 'detraumatize' your dog or cat) and they really annoyed the cr@p out of me.

But with everything: if you've met one of them...you only met one of them.

Some were laughable, some were great in reasuring the owners and one or two were actually surprisingly good.

The most these women in general did was "tuning in" to the dog/cat by reading their bodylanguage and do the same with the hang-ups from the owners...
so nothing paranormal/ extrasensory info whatoever needed.
Just some smart observing and repeating some foregone conclusions.

(Touch a dog or cat and the tension in the skin will tell you how stressed he/she is and how long that has been going on- it's hardly rocketscience, massage a few areas and you will know even more...)


So if this woman did a fun reading without seeing the bird or interacting with the owner...that is a lot more impressive

(and from what I've read about mister RB, distance is a wise choice anyway / sorry Gail)

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

Mr. Boats, I hear ya. I think my mysticism (or whatever it is) is a matter of brain structure or chemistry. It's probably as lost a cause trying to talk me out of it as it is to try to talk me out of liking chocolate? Yeah, the remote thing was a bg jump for me, too. An in-person thing would be different. Still, that PRETTY POPPY thing just flipped me out.

Clarkmeister, I know you're an electrical engineer or similar, right? I actually am glad you're so scientifically oriented. I wouldn't want a mystic like ME hooking up the wires in my environment!!!!! Okay, I'll buy the Rb a toy, too!!!!!

Laura, Chris... yeah, why not live a little in both lands... mysticism AND science. I for one, need them both. Thanks for that.

Christa, you got THAT right... distance is the best communication method with the Rb. Good points about basic intuition and sensitivity not being rocket science. I think I live my life practically and intellectually, usually, but I can't resist an occasional trip into what my ol' man calls The Twilight Zone... I call it the Great Unknown.

You guys are great.

My exact sentiments! While I'd never make a life or significant decision based substantially on psychic reading, it is difficult to ignore the many uncanny "coincidences." And yes, I've taken undergraduate sadistics, er, statistics and understand the relationship of chance to reality.

Re: Pet Psychic Experience

Scott, I do SO get you. I loved (and excelled at) sadistics, I promise! Probability Theory is so sexy! Error Variance? Be still my heart.

But you can still call me... Pretty Poppy.

Why did I just read this as "the Gail Unknown"?



Time to bring my feet (both of them) firmly on the ground again.
