Choosing a Psychic
Selecting the right psychic is much like choosing a doctor.
You need to find someone who is good at what they do,
empathetic, caring and professional. Ultimately it comes down to
your own personal preference. You need to feel comfortable with
and have some confidence in whoever you choose.
Just as each doctor
has a different bedside manner, each psychic practitioner has a
different style. Not only that, the variety of modalities seems
endless. There are so many ways to open your Intuition and
receive the information that I would need to write a book to
simply scratch the surface. However, there are a few basic
queues to look for regardless of your preference.
In all professions you
will find a wide range of people; those that simply do it for
the money, the charlatans, the honest, the ethical and the
professional, among others. So what should you look for? What
should clue you in that the person you’re dealing with isn’t
totally above board?
practitioner when they are doing a reading. Do they really
listen? Do they seem sincere? Are they more concerned with the
time limit and the money than they are with your welfare? Will
they simply leave you crying when your time is up, or do they
guide you back to a better place?
The question is what
kind of state they leave you in. Are they being comforting? If
you come across a painful experience, can they help you through
it? Having someone see who you really are behind your everyday
façade can be a very moving experience. There are times when you
will walk away from a reading with tears in your eyes. A good
cry is a healthy outlet for your emotions. It can be very
Also, you need to
remember that we all relate to information through our own
filters; our past, our environment, our beliefs, etc. This is a
natural human trait. Be aware of that when having a reading. For
example, when I was pregnant with my daughter I had several
readings; more for advice on my relationship with her father
than anything else. A psychic actually suggested I have an
abortion, seeing my relationship as basically over. She was so
afraid of single motherhood that she could not even conceive of
it. She was sincere and trying to be helpful, but that was not
good advice for me.
The only way to
discover some of these things is to experience them. But,
referrals can help. What kinds of things are said about the
person? No one is going to be universally adored, so don’t write
someone off because you hear of one bad experience. We all have
bad days; maybe that was one of them. Or the person giving their
opinion may not have liked what they were told because it was
not what they wanted to hear. I could tell you stories…
There are definite
things that should raise red flags for you. You need to be wary
of psychics who speak in absolutes. Anyone who claims 100%
accuracy is a liar. Scientific studies have shown that even the
best of us have 78% to 85% accuracy. A normal person usually
rates a 30%.
Be careful of
practitioners who throw the word evil around. It is a very
powerful word and most of us do not use it lightly. Everyone’s
heard stories about the kind of psychic who sees evil around you
that must be removed, or you will be in great peril and your
situation will only worsen. These practitioners will require
that you pay them copious amounts of money to remove it. They
will usually have you come back for several sessions.
Another variation on
this is the psychic who tries to ride your coattails to success.
I once had to deal with a psychic who would insert herself into
your reading if she saw any kind of success for you.
What is sad about this
type of fraud is that I have found many of these types to
actually be accurate and gifted psychics. I don’t understand the
greed and lust for power which accompanies this type of
Basically, THE PROOF
IS IN THE PUDDING. Even Jesus said [Matthew 7:15] “Be on your
guard against false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s
clothing but underneath are wolves on the prowl. You will know
them by their deeds.”
How do you feel after
a reading? Was it uplifting and helpful, or did it foster fear?
Very little of what
happens to you is unavoidable. You need to take responsibility
for your own future. Our purpose is to give you an idea of the
landscape; you need to decide how you will navigate it.
