Peek into the future to grasp the present?

Palm, cards and birthdate reading are all kinds of techniques that fortunetellers use to tell one’s fortune. Some people think they control their fate and destiny; however, when they face problems, they go to the fortuneteller to have their fortune told.

Srey Puch, 24, said she consulted a fortuneteller because she wanted to learn about fortunetelling and because she wanted to know when she would get a job.

“When I applied for a job, there was no one calling me; it was silent,” she said.

“I felt frustrated, so I went to see a soothsayer to foretell what lay ahead and why I hadn’t achieved what I wanted.”

She added that the fortuneteller found out something bad, and advised her to have a water ceremony with the elders in order to ward off the bad things; therefore, she had one.

“After I had the water ceremony, I felt better and happier than before.”

Regardless of whether the fortuneteller was accurate, she said that she believed that this was related to the human mind and feelings; if one was unhappy, they would not do better, but if their mind was clear, then they could solve problems easily.
