Who says they don't? I am sure you have heard the lame, old joke: "How come you never see the headline, 'Psychic Wins Lottery?" Well, it just so happens that psychics do win the lottery!
Skeptics often ask why psychics don’t use their talents to predict the winning lottery numbers? This question may have some merit in a stand-up comedy routine. I enjoy a clever joke as much as the next person, but once everyone has had their laugh, all that remains for me is a tragic reflection of the lack of spiritual depth, as well as the superficial materialism, of our society.
The truth is there have actually been several reports of psychics and their clients winning the lottery. This proves the lame old lottery gag is indeed a myth, but what is often far more significant is the actual circumstances surrounding these wins.
Recently I had the unpleasant experience of listening to a friend and colleague being poked fun at during a live radio broadcast. She is a remarkable and truly gifted person and she was invited as a guest to speak about the work psychics do, but ended up being ambushed by the two presenters.
I often wonder why intelligent, educated people would value bouncing, colorful balls, with numbers on them, as a reliable scientific measurement and proof of a spiritual phenomenon? Psychic ability, clairvoyance and mediumship are special blessings to humanity, not a circus act?
Asking a psychic to guess what you had for breakfast, what your favorite color is or to predict the next lottery, is like using a highly trained guide dog or a uniquely gifted musician to perform silly party tricks. In fact, the best way to spot a fake psychic is to ask them to jump through hoops for your entertainment. If they oblige, you most certainly have a scam artist on your hands. This kind of thing is simply not what our work is about.
Truly gifted psychics are the soothsayers, spiritual guides and intuitive healers of our species. We have been here for centuries, since the origins of man, and we will continue to follow our calling and perform our divine duties with diligence. If we were meant to predict lotteries, there would in fact be no psychics available to do readings for anyone; neither would there ultimately be any lotteries to predict. Psychics would all be millionaires and we would probably control all the resources in the world.
For that matter, why stop at prediciting only the lottery? Psychics could get together and host a daily television broadcast telling everyone all over the world what will happen next. Imagine how dull and pointless life would be?
Question remains, since psychics will have all the power and access to all the money in this stagnant, unbalanced ‘psychic society’, would we still bother prediciting anything for others? What for? I leave it to the skeptics and cynics to do the rest of the math.
Seldom will you read news reports about how psychic readings have transformed the lives of people. These small miracles happen all the time; I witness them myself on a daily basis. Fact is, such mundane success stories do not make sensational newspaper reports, neither are they very entertaining as dinner party jokes.
When I hear the old “psychics-and-the-lottery” joke, I always wonder why no one ever asks this question of their priest or pastor or minister? So, let me ask it now. Why don’t you ever read headlines about spiritual leaders who have received the winning lottery numbers through prayer or meditation?
A good example of psychics winning the lottery is the group of psychics in Australia, who won their share of a $22 million jackpot in September 2006. Each of the psychics in the syndicate was blessed with an estimated $85,000 each.
Far more significant than the actual amount they won, is the fact that these ladies did not get together for selfish purposes. They were not motivated by greed, and winning the lottery was not their original motivation. The truth of the matter is that the ‘lucky’ group started out as a social club for local ladies, with the aim of doing charitable work in their community.
These ladies got together on a regular basis, to not only have lunch and chat, but to support needy families and other charitable causes. Funds were collected at meetings and then slipped, anonymously, under the door of some or other house in the neighborhood, wherever it was most needed.
After they won the lottery, these ladies made it clear that they will be continuing their charity work. Their intention was to share this blessing with their community.
Just to be clear, the winning numbers were revealed to at least two of these ladies in a dream. It was not a chance event, it was destined. Neither did they do any magic spells or voodoo to get the desired results. The win was simply revealed to them in a spontaneous dream.
More examples of psychics winning lotteries include the following media reports:

It is common knowledge among the psychic community, as well as those who are spiritually aware, that the information or messages we receive during psychic readings are dependent on what is revealed to us at that moment in time. We only receive what is truly necessary and destined for that specific person at that point in their life. No more, no less.
If you are meant to hear the next winning lottery numbers from your psychic, believe me you will. Asking for it, or even demanding it, will seldom yield the desired results, unless your ‘psychic’ is using questionable methods of a darker, lower vibrational origin.
By the way, did you know your actual odds of winning the lottery depend on where you play, but it typically ranges from 1 in 10 million to 1 in 20 million. And did you know that you are 6 to 45 times more likely to die from a lightning strike than winning the lottery?
So, why did those Australian psychics win the lottery? I will once again leave it to the skeptics and cynics to go figure.
