Keep an Open Mind
Skepticism is fine . . . but might get shattered!
Some 17 years ago, I approached my first encounter with an animal communicator very skeptically; frankly, as a fresh journalism grad, I relished the chance to expose her as a fraud. Within minutes, my skepticism was in shambles. She not only accurately described the quirky behavior problems my young Border Collie displayed – which I had not yet described to her – but gave me the most helpful advice for dealing with those behaviors that I ever received. I couldn’t explain this in a million years, but I believed in it, whatever it was.
