A thread started today on Facebook about something overheard at an MBS show (thank you Richard for the inspiration).  It made me smile because as you might have gathered from previous threads I have just about had it up to here (imagine me putting my hand over the top of my head) with what nonsense the ‘New Age’ market is becoming.

Many years ago I was at an MBS show with a shop stand, beside me was a woman doing readings.  She told a client …..”I see you surrounded by cats”, the lady replied “‘I hate cats and that comment is freaking me out”, hold on a minute said FFTL (Fake Fortune Teller Lady) , oh yeeeeesssssss I understand now, the cat world love you and want to be your friend, that is why they are gathering, do not be scared.  Client was now having a near panic attack, FFTL changes her line of thought, I see you on a bus.  Client “I haven’t been on a bus since I was a teenager almost 30 years ago”. FFTL “oh let me see, oh yes spirit are telling me to remind you of innocent days, when you were free of worry, the bus is symbolic of your journey”.  Client, “can’t really take that, I was pregnant at 16 and my family never forgave me”  and so it went on.  At the end of the day FFTL told me she had made a mint.  I complained about her to the organiser who then told FFTL what I had said, (shit), me and FFTL had words, talk about six foot tall and bullet proof, but what can we do if organisers of these events don’t book on recommendation and take no notice of feedback.  I really don’t know but I do know I despair sometimes.  And don’t get me started on a workshop for £149 how to close down your chakra’s, if anyone wants to know e mail me or call I will tell you for free in 2 minutes!

The Star indeed, I hope at last we are waking up.
