some people want to believe in esp or clairvoyance, etc. in hopes of being able to make sense out of life. all that "it was a sign", "I felt that it was so right" or even pulling this topic a bit in another direction, there are people that want to communicate with the dead. who doesn't want to talk to a loved one that has passed, but i don't buy it. i don't believe that there are certain individuals that are placed on this earth that are able to communicate with the dead and i believe that there are some people that are so desperate that they want to believe it, regardless of what is said to them. They buy it.
If you've ever had your palm or tarot cards read it's so general. Anyone can take what is said to them and somehow relate it to their lives.
