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.
Here’s something to think about…how come you never see a headline like ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’?
The conversation that followed sounded like cross-questioning, instead of it being an objective, investigative interview. Of course, the tired old lottery joke once again made its sad appearance. Clearly these two ‘journalists’ had not done much homework.
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.
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?
If it’s the Psychic Network why do they need a phone number?
Actually, why bother? We could all simply predict each other’s date of death and get it over with. Who needs spiritual growth or exploration of the higher dimensions? Why hang around, why work, why study, why fall in love, why dream, why plan anything?
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.

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.
