Items that will be prohibited include: advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic services; prayers; blessings; Psychic, Tarot, Reiki, and other metaphysical readings & services; magic potions; healing sessions; work from home businesses & information; wholesale lists, and drop ship lists.
- Metaphysical: Psychic, Paranormal > Readings
- Metaphysical: Psychic, Paranormal > Spells, Potions
- Metaphysical: Tarot Readings
You will no longer be able to purchase your metaphysical items from many of your favorite sellers on ebay. Violations of the ebay policy can result in seller account suspension or termination. For this reason many sellers are forced to change their item descriptions to not include the prohibited items or references to their intangible properties.
This means sellers on ebay can no longer sell you items with spells, spirits, or powers. Although ebay has not banned other mainstream religious items, it will no longer allow:
NO Djinn, NO Demon, NO Dragon, not even a tiny fairy.
Some see this as religious discrimination. The issues have stirred the community and have been reported by many national news sites. There is a petition to stop ebay from banning the psychics. You can support your favorite sellers by signing the petition anonymously.

How To Find Your Sellers
Due to the short notice from ebay on these changes, many sellers are coming together in the true spirit of unity to help each other move to new sites. Some sellers are moving to other online markets. Many are building their own sites. Ultimately unity is important as the community is expanding to be available to you in the place you may already be online. We are all working to create a future where you can enjoy shopping with us and continue to build the community support. Currently you can locate many sellers here:

TO EBAY - With all sincerity: Thank you for being our home for 6 years. We were blessed by the bounty of your shoppers, we met lovely friends, and we grew wise in the online market. Although you have chosen to destroy our ability to be a Metaphysical seller on your site, you have in fact, done something greater than you can imagine. You have helped us evolve and unite as a spiritual community. You have strengthened our beliefs. Your intolerance has honored our religions by allowing us to show you just how capable we are at overcoming obstacles. You've pushed us into new markets where we have met even more new friends who celebrate love and light. You have renewed our spirit of survival, sparking an excitement. We are not sad; we are not hurt; we are not scared; we are not shaken; we are not defeated by your hate. We are blessed by our beliefs. We are grateful for your failed attack. We are encouraged by the love being shown to us from all over the world by those with religious tolerance. Many big corporate markets try to destroy the little folk. What you fail to understand is the size of our strength, when we unite hand in hand. Ebay, we are blessed, and loved by many. We receive that which we give, and we have open hearts, and open hands. We invite any and all to take our hands, share our hearts, and discover the blessings with us. Change is here!
The metaphysical sellers want to thank our clients for being a part of our lives and for all the love you have shown us over the years. You are the reason we are here. Brightest Blessings!
