I read an article today that stated a law changed in London to where Psychics, Spiritual Healers, and the like can possibly lead them to be persecuted and prosecuted. The Fraudulent Mediums Act of 1951 was their protection against anyone who rendered services from them and they could not seek legal action if the services did not help. I guess the British Prime Minister believed that if that type of practice was generating so much money that they needed to do something to protect the consumers. These changes should come into effect next month.

The majority of them fall under a "Religious" practice. What is upsetting them is that now they have to prove that they are "Genuine". Which no other religion has to do.

I look at it like this People do go to Psychics for many different reasons. Mainly because of an interest in what they may find out. Others yes they may have troubles health wise, financial wise, or emotionally. I really do not think that even in the most desperate cases that a person would automatically run to a Psychic or a spiritual as their first option. It may be something that is a last resort. Which leads to why they would even try to bring legal action to them if everything else they tried before did not work. Then why take it out on the Psychic, and healers?

Hopefully people are smart enough to know that yes the power of believing lies in the believer. If they choose to respect a Psychic enough to go to them then they should also respect the fact that they may not get the exact outcome as they expected.

Are you ever TOO old?

So my thought for this week is.... Do you ever get to a certain age to where you feel that you may be a little too old for mom and dad to tell you what you can and can not do? Well in my case, I live Alone, I pay all of my bills Alone, I take care of everything that I have to on my own. Yes I have a mother who will do things for me voluntarily but not to the extent where I am dependent on her for it.

So this is the story, my Best friend's grandmother passed away just recently and I have not been the comforting and supporting best friend that I should be. I have known her grandmother for seven years and I know her more than I know my own grandmother. I have been so consumed with work and school that I have yet to go visit her and the family to show my support. Well my best friend understands and has not held it against me. I call her as often as I know she would need someone to talk to, and this week she was out shopping for some items that she needed for a mass that they will have for her grandmother which will be held in Juarez. I let her know that I want to go and to let me know for sure so that I can ride over there with them, I can not drive in Juarez...

The next day I'm talking to my mother and tell her that I'm going to the mass in Juarez. She tells me that I am not going! My mother has been keeping up with everything violence wise that has been going on there in Juarez. What worries my mother the most is the things that happen to women. I mean I respect that she cares and worries about my safety. I have been there plenty of times with my best friend and her family for similar situations such as masses and baptisms in Churches. Granted I am still going regardless.

Would this be considered disobeying my mother??

My Spring Break

I really made a big sacrifice and did not take a trip this year for spring break. Reason being, I feel that I did not deserve to go anywhere not with the grades I have been making. I so called planned on catching up with all of my past due work but it is just getting harder and harder for me to actually do it. I have been in slow motion mode this whole semester. I NEED HELP!! SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME A SWIFT KICK IN THE BUTT, maybe that will work, Let me know what the price will be before doing so.. I have to make sure I have the funds available.....
