This store and its "Psychic" readers are all theives and fakes.  They and their kind are the reason psychics have a bad reputation.  They do "favors" for clients, having them come in before the store opens to do a healing, and then charge the client 4 times the stores price for the same service.  When an employee brought this to the attention of the client and owner she was fired for it.  So they would rather steal from clients and employ liars and theives, than employ honest, hard working people.  I hope this business has to close its doors once the public becomes aware of their business practices!

Mary Lynn Bast and CAT Parapsychics operating illegally while attempting unsuccessfully to injure reputations of

AUTHOR: Josh - ()

MaryLynn Bast and “CAT Parapsychics,” --  Jeffrey Seelman the Exorcist, Candy Nickens aka Binnings, “Luke,”  “Savannah,” “Sharon,” Lou Magelowitz, “Zach,”  “Ember,” Rich Natole, “Monique,” Scott Binnihanna, “Patrick,” – all “Afterlife team members” practicing as part of an illegal operation in both Las Vegas and Henderson, according to a city licensing inspector. Don’t let MaryLynn Bast tell you that she is licensed because of her partnership licensing in the state of Nevada. She, her organization, and its members must have a Psychic Arts license. That license indicates that people have been thoroughly background checked and subjected to every scrutinizing process under the sun. Please confirm with Licensing in either Las Vegas or Henderson. Both offices have access to records of adjoining areas and will check for you.   

So many of us in Las Vegas know how much hard work it takes to build a reputation of integrity, and then to maintain a business under duress – even in the face of jealous colleagues who wish to bill themselves as experts, before they’ve done the work to earn it. Case in point: MaryLynn Bast filing a complaint on RipOff Report and elsewhere for being fired after failing to destroy the reputations of Mary Valine and Jessica Pena at the Psychic Eye. Jessica, incidentally, helped MaryLynn get her job at the Psychic Eye.

As MaryLynn herself states on her website, her “career” as a professional psychic began at the Psychic Eye. How long ago? Approximately two months. Confirm this with Joan Curry, Psychic Eye manager, or Kara, another manager, at the Silverado store. Apparently, two months was long enough to render MaryLynn an expert, not only in so-called paranormal exorcisms, but also as a healer. MaryLynn advertises herself as a Reiki Master, although she has not received the attunements that Reiki Masters must receive and build upon through years of practice.

MaryLynn’s motive for wanting Mary Valine and Jessica Pena fired: Mary Valine is a professional healer who works out of the store, and Jessica, who brought her friend MaryLynn to the store, is a healer with more knowledge than MaryLynn. Jessica made the unfortunate mistake of working with CAT Parapsychics, and has paid well. Some CAT clients were frustrated with the lack of results they got from a group that likes to play bump in the night and post spooky pictures on the Internet, but doesn’t offer much substance after all that sage smoke dissipates. Truly terrified clients would ask Jessica for help, noticing that she had more knowledge than the others. Mary is Jessica’s teacher, and the final frontier when it comes to solving a big problem. That’s not something you can create in two months.

Even after MaryLynn Bast’s ruse was proved and she was fired, she desperately targeted the third reader at the store who did healings, all to no avail, accusing her of giving kickbacks to a manager. It appeared that MaryLynn Bast hoped to clear out people who did energy work at the store because they were paid more for their skills. You’ll notice the focus on money in her RipOff Report complaints and elsewhere, albeit the bloated pricing she quotes is a lie.

On to the allegations about MaryLynn’s friend being charged an exorbitant amount by Mary and Jessica. MaryLynn calls her friend “Lauren” in the Ripoff complaint. The woman who called and bore false witness against Mary and Jessica was named “Candy.” Lauren is her daughter, who reputedly has a drug problem and has battled mental health issues for several years. While living in a meth, pot, and spice-infested home, Candy has also been dabbling in demons as part of the group. Candy Nickens aka Binnings is on the CAT Parapsychics website.

There was no record of Candy’s healing visits in the Psychic Eye scheduling books. MaryLynn’s initial allegation about her friend being overcharged stated that these visits took place at the store before Mary’s shift. How would that happen? Out on the street?

Mary Karahalios, Psychic Eye owner, cares enough about her contractors to look into matters before passing judgment. And, Manager Joan Curry was diligent enough to unturn every stone, just to be fair. Mary Kara and her team, through hours of work, discovered that MaryLynn Bast was operating several sites against her contracting agreement with the store. She has even been using “Psychic Eye” – big legal no-no – as a heading on one of her blogs, www.mlbast.com, or “The Many Musings of MaryLynn.”

MaryLynn Bast’s assertion that “each and every reader” at the Psychic Eye has their own website outside of the store is a lie. Confirm this by talking to the readers themselves, and not only listen to their words, but also watch their reaction when you ask. The one exception is a website that MaryLynn Bast herself manufactured, laughably, hoping to frame Jessica Pena. Go to spiritualinsightsbyjessica.blogspot.com. MaryLynn Bast’s picture and tag pop up in the right-hand column. She spelled the word”Reiki” incorrectly on the site. MaryLynn Bast, if you are going to practice Reiki on people, you must learn how to spell it.

Plenty of readers who’ve practiced for years, albeit unprofessionally, start out with good intentions, but lose their space easily when it comes to joining our profession. You can often tell who they are when they pose as the expert, talking down to clients who “need help understanding what they don’t understand.” No matter how naturally gifted these readers claim to be, not much matters if ego becomes the all-consuming motivation. To be egoic, hurt others, disparage the reputation of those you envy, and claim to be what you are not yet, is demonic. To practice, to perfect, and to treat your clients as well as your colleagues with love, appreciation, and respect, is divine. Learn, MaryLynn Bast. Learn.

 That people actually believe in these con artists!! There is no such thing as a "psychic, spellcaster, love guru" etc etc.  They are all cons who cannot get a REAL job.
