RICHLAND, Wash-- In tough economic times, one business is changing and booming: the psychic business. A local psychic says rather than people asking about love, they're asking about the economy.
"It was great, we had a lot of business," says Janice Lynch, referring to the 2008 fiscal year.Some studies show the psychic business is up almost 70% from a year ago.
"I get everything from 'what's the stock market going to do, what should I do with my money, to how do I change?"
Janice Lynch says she sees anywhere from 10-20 customers a week, and predicts our lifestyle is what drives the economy up and down.
"As we live our lives in fear, panic, and turmoil, then that sets the stock market up to the highs and lows that its been experiencing."
And that is why Lynch says 2009 is the year of choice, something this psychic says may be the answer to wall street's failure.
"As we act in our own lives, each of us taking action in our own life, then that's going to reflect back into the stabilization of the stock market."
