Ohhhhh Sylvia

I have decided that i'm going to make a list of people or things i don't like, not much different that what i'm already doing, except i'm going to add numbers!!!!

1. Slyvia the spirit contactor person thingy

As i was channel surfing this morning i came across a show called montel or something like that and this chick sylvia was on it. And apparently Sylvia has paranormal powers. So she was sending messages to people on behalf of their dead loved ones. I didn't catch the whole show, just the last fifteen minutes or so, which interestingly enough was a quesion period. One question was
Woman: Ummmmm Sylvia do you see a career change in my future?
Sylvia: No (wow that was really insightful)
Woman #2 Both of my sons are gone, are any of them speaking to me
Sylvia: The darker of the two says he makes noises.
Woman # 2 Thank you. (sits down)
Woman #3 Sylvia, i just finished a complete life overhaul did i miss anything
Sylvia: No, your heart problems are because of stress( only legitimateesq answer, although you could visually guess the reason for her life overhaul)

Something else that she said i found really interesting. She was talking about her sensitivity to the spirit world and gave an example, by retelling a story that occured when she was off lecturing to opened minded intellectuals(read grieving vulnreable people). This incident occured the day the pope died. At roughly 9:20 am during her lecture she said her spirit guide spoke to her and she went on to name the spirit guide, which i won't bother repeating his name for a number of reasons, the least of which it's not worth the effort. The spirit guide then (allegedly)communicated to her that " We have the pope" . Personally, I know that there is a spiritual realm and that in fact one can interact with it, as far as spirit guides go, i'd rather have a root canal. According to my personal views, these spirit guides are demons, who would love to guide your spirit all right. Then i was thinking so if this event did occur, then what are the ramifications of that phrase "We have the pope" Now, that day the pope did not die for another several hours, but her claim was he crossed over when her guide delivered the message. So, if one could speculate on said ramifications they would not be good. Needless to say spirit guides are bound to now standard of morality, and I would venture that it is rather quite the opposite.
This show reminded how people try to use the spiritual realm for power.

This slyvia women was vague in all of her responses to the questions. The funniest part is, is that her and her son, have a book coming out about animals,called "pets and the other side" or something like that. Worst ever. I mean, it's bad enough she's profiting off of peoples warped grieving process but this is ridiculous. I mean, she can't tell what animals are saying when they are alive, what the hell makes her think they talk to her when they die? People like her make me angry. Do i believe in the possibility for her to communicate with the spirit world? Yes, absolutely. Do i think she's communicating with peoples loved ones. No, I don't. I think people like her are attracted to the power of the occult and blend it with verbal manipulation to make a lot of money.

Hi! Thanks for hitting up my page earlier. I work for City Hall in Edmonton and we had a HUGE event for the Queen yesterday. She was resplendent in her gorgeous white outfit. I, however, was more interested in the hunky police men in their dress uniforms, however!! Ha ha.

On a different note, I, too, can't stand all the Sylvia's out there who stand to profit from people's grief. I agree that if she really is hearing voices, they're probably demonic. I also can't stand the fact that they get so much press, too. Who in their right mind would give them a platform from which to spew their venom?

I am impressed, and very much surprised, that you only had one thing you don't like on your list.
