When you're worried about your computer's safety and security, you turn to America's Digital Goddess for sound advice. Or if it's really bad, you might take it into your local computer repair shop. But what if you're a millionaire tech entrepreneur in the cutthroat world of Silicon Valley?

Well, apparently they consult psychics and mystics for advice about their upcoming projects, that's what. Many of the tech haven's biggest companies are turning to spiritual guidance to help them navigate their business.

"I call myself the Dr. Phil of numerology because I'm so incredibly honest and forthright," Sally Faubion, a 70-year-old San Francisco psychic, says. "I help people, and if I didn't help people I would never stay with this. The money isn't that great. You have to hustle, and I don't like hustling."

Faubion has over 1,700 clients from companies all over the world, including Apple and Genentech, and she's not the only one they turn to. There are hundreds of psychics that help tech employees figure out what their future holds for them.

From new company developments and profits to their personal life, Faubion and the band of spiritual leaders forecasts it all.

Science-minded developers and business people are hesitant to pay a psychic or spiritual leader so many mystics are rebranding themselves as executive coaches, spiritual therapists and even corporate counselors to ward off skepticism.

Who knows if it actually works, but this type of spiritual guidance seems to give the head honchos at major tech companies peace of mind.

But I want to know what do you think about Silicon Valley employees using psychics? Is it harmless or a waste of profit. Let me know by commenting below.
