Why Don’t Psychics Win The Lottery?

Visit PsychicAccess.comSkeptics 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.

Interestingly, there have been several reports of psychics, or their clients, winning the lottery. This proves the lame old lottery joke is indeed a myth, but what is often far more significant is the actual circumstances surrounding these wins.

Performing Party Tricks

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. 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.

I often wonder why intelligent, educated people would value bouncing, colorful balls, with numbers on them, as a reliable scientific measurement and proof of a spiritual phenomenon? Psychic ability, clairvoyance and mediumship are special blessings to humanity, not a circus act?

Here’s something to think about…how come you never see a headline like ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’? – Jay Leno

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.

Brave New World

Truly gifted psychics are the soothsayers, spiritual guides and intuitive healers of our species. We have been here for centuries, since the origins of man, and we will continue to follow our calling and perform our divine duties with diligence. If we were meant to predict lotteries, there would in fact be no psychics available to do readings for anyone; neither would there ultimately be any lotteries to predict. Psychics would all be millionaires and we would probably control all the resources in the world.

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?

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?

Question remains, since psychics will have all the power and access to all the money in this stagnant, unbalanced ‘psychic society’, would we still bother prediciting anything for others? What for? I leave it to the skeptics and cynics to do the rest of the math.

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?

If it’s the Psychic Network why do they need a phone number? – Robin Williams

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.

No More, No Less

Just to be clear, the winning numbers were revealed to at least two of these ladies in a precognitive dream. It was not a chance event, it was destined. Neither did they do any magic spells or focused readings to get the desired results. The win was simply revealed to them in a spontaneous dream.

It is common knowledge among the psychic community, as well as those who are spiritually aware, that the information or messages we receive during psychic readings are dependent on what is revealed to us at that moment in time. We only receive what is truly necessary and destined for that specific person at that point in their life. No more, no less.

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.

So, why did those Australian psychics win the lottery? I will once again leave it to the skeptics and cynics to go figure.

  • Thank you for the feedback 🙂

  • LOL is that what you young people would say in this cases? Hello there, i’m a 84 years old grandfather and I’ve just found this website in my browser history. My nephew used my laptop the last time he went here, I believe… he says LOL pretty often but I’ve started to undertand what it means only recently but he’s a good boy after all. Keep doing your best guys, Internet is a real blessing and you have no idea how lucky you are. Best wishes by a old man commenting for the first time

  • Lol 😀 Could it also be that psychic ability is not generally that precise but more pointing in one direction or another?


  • Thanks for your question Holly!

    Actually psychic abilities can be extremely precise, more than you realize. I have personally predicted exact dates, times, places, people, events …..and also exact numbers.

    But, yes, this does not happen every day and it also does not happen in every reading. As I explained in this article, the information or messages that we receive at a given moment, during a psychic reading, depends a lot on what you need to know at the point, not necessarily what you demand to know or what you want to know. Asking for anwers out of greed or for selfish reasons usually does not yield very positive results.

    Many psychics and mediums are perfectly able to predict very precisely. But we do tend to be careful with this, because sometimes we do get it wrong. Or sometimes it is better for you to NOT know the exact date or time, etc.

    We are merely interpreters or translators of what we feel, see, hear or experience… and sometimes our interpretations are affected by our human limitation, or interfered with by our own logic or personal opinions. This is also the reason why most psychics find it almost impossible to predict or read for themselves. I can see things coming up in your life, but I hardly ever know what to expect in my own… 🙂

    Therefore the best psychic readers are not necessarily the most gifted ones, but actually the ones who can translate or interpret the most accurately and clearly. Sometimes a lot of the things I ‘see’ make no logical sense to me, but they always do for my clients.

    Do not underestimate the powerful accuracy you can get from some psychic readings. If you just need a general direction, that is what you will get, to enable you to do the work yourself and learn the lessons yourself, etc. But if you are meant to be warned about an exact date or if you are destined to win a lottery to enable you to start the charity foundation you have been planning (for example)- well, then you can get such information from a reading.

    Also, it does help to get your reading from truly gifted professionals, like my colleagues at So visit one of us there for your next reading! 🙂

  • Awesome article…again! I love your blog and your writing is superb.

    I will admit I am always looking for ways to practice my clairsentience. I have used scratch off tickets to practice. Yes, I win, but interestingly I ALWAYS only break even…spend $2, win $2. lol. I always figured it was because my goal and my intention was to practice and not to strike it rich in that way.


  • Thanks for the compliments!! Your story is really very interesting Sherry. Makes a lot of sense that you only break even! I wish more people would understand why psychic ability and gambling simply do not go very well together. Imagine every psychic in the world making a living out of gambling? I am sure all casinos will close their doors anyway, and their will no longer be a lottery!
