5 Biggest Mistakes Selecting a Psychic

Nov 19, 2007
Just because you see an advert in a magazine or online that says someone has been a successful psychic for twenty years and they can help you, this does not necessarily mean they are the real deal. Don't Believe Their Hype.

I've seen ads where psychics say they've read for Presidents and charge $300 for 20 minutes and yet their ability does not reflect their financial rate. The most expensive psychics are not always the best.

"Preying on Vulnerable People"

Having done over 1,000 psychic readings, Approximately 80% of my clients are going through some type of challenge. The other 20% are looking to deepen their relationships, create more success and deepen spiritual awareness.

When people are vulnerable, they can be desperate for answers and will go to any psychic to alleviate their pain. I have heard of situations where the person has left the reading more distraught than when they arrived for their session.

If you are in an emotional state and have any doubt about the psychic, do not commit to a session with them.

"A Psychic is not God"

A psychic reads your energy field and accesses information from your past, present or future. Do not let any psychic have power over your decision making process.

A psychic's role is to support you as a guide and a counselor so you can make the best choice. A psychic reading is meant to be preventative medicine.

It is poor conduct and irresponsible when a psychic says something like "You are going to die in the next two years." "You're husband will have an affair." "You're going to loose money."

I remember being at a New Age event and this guy comes up to me. He tells me he's a professional palm reader, before I could respond, he'd grabbed my hand, turned it over and said "Oh, you're going to die in a year and there's nothing you can do about it."

I was horrified. I knew his energy was off and I dismissed him however for someone susceptible to this information, it would have been quite traumatic.

Listen to information however come to your own conclusions. If you are uncomfortable in a reading and the psychic is abusing your boundaries, leave.

"Manipulation and Power-play"

Watch out for psychics and healers that claim to be channeling extra-terrestrial beings. I have seen their egos get in the way. They will give incorrect or hurtful information to get what they want. Most of the time their actions come from their unconscious mind. They are not aware that their ego is giving misleading guidance.

If what you are being told feels hurtful towards you rather than showing the truth of a situation, the reading is not serving the purpose of helping you.

Do not be frightened to explain that the information is not true for you. Ultimately the most important person to trust is you.

"Why is the Psychic Behaving Like The Spanish Inquisition?"

It's a bad sign when you go for a reading and the psychic starts asking you lots of questions to extract information from you.

For example "Are you married? Do you have children? Are you going through a divorce? I've got a dead relative coming through for you. Is it your Dad, brother, ex-boyfriend?"

I find the best readings are when I don't know the client because it gives them confirmation about the guidance they are receiving. A good psychic will be able to tune straight in.

5 Tips to Help You Pick The Best Psychic For You

1.Get a referral from a friend or reputable metaphysical bookstore.

2.Trust your gut. Just because someone said they had an amazing reading with a psychic, doesn't mean they are the right psychic for you. It depends on their vibration being a match with yours.

3. Be open when going for a reading. If you put up a wall and try to test the psychic, you'll be wasting your time and money.

4. Are they friendly? Professional? Supportive?

5. Psychic Checklist: Questions to Ask

How long have you been psychic reading?

How will you tune in to get the information I need?
How many readings have you done?

What percentage of your clients return? If yes, how often?

Do you honor client confidentiality?

Do you teach workshops?

I strongly recommend carrying out a little research before committing to the reading. This will maximize your connection with the psychic, confirm that the psychic is authentic and set you up for a positive experience.
