So, you've decided that you want to check out this "psychic reading" thing. Or maybe, you have been to a psychic before and would like to try it again.
How do you pick one? No one likes to get scammed. You are paying your hard earned money to get some insights, you don't need someone to tell you that your stars are not aligned, or that you are looking for something or trying to figure out your life. Aren't we all?
If you weren't looking for something or trying to get insight or a different view into something, you wouldn't be looking for a psychic in the first place.
One of the first things you need to do is to take a look at a couple of websites. Don't be fooled by good marketing - some true psychics have expensive sites, some are maintained by the psychic themselves. What the psychic has to say makes a difference. Psychics are as varied as the rest of the population, each having their own special talents and their own way of communicating. Some psychics were born psychic, some became aware of their gift after a life altering event, and some have worked hard for a very long time to hone their ability to connect with Spirit.
Some use tools like tarot cards, runes or tea leaves. Others simply sit quietly and channel
information from Spirit. How they do the reading does not matter, that you get something out of
Any psychic that is any good is doing a reading for you because they truly want to help you with
your path. Most genuine psychics are not getting rich from doing psychic readings. Some do better
financially than others, but often it has more to do with their other endeavors, not just the readings themselves.
Everyone has their own intuition and gut feelings about things. It is important when choosing a psychic that you use yours. If you happen along a website and just feel a connection with someone then that person is definitely worth looking in to.
There are many good psychics out there, why not talk to one where you feel a connection?
Another thing to look at are testimonials. Yes, I suppose testimonials could be made up, but why would a good psychic do that? There would be no need. Testimonials, along with all the other things mentioned in this article can be a good indication of what you might get out of your reading.
Look for signals throughout their website. Words and phrases like 'empower', 'non-judgmental', 'help you make your own informed decisions' (rather than 'I will tell you what to do'), help you
work through your journey (or path), are all signs of a true psychic. One who wants to help you, not
help themselves to your money. If on their site they claim to be able to make other people behave
in a certain way you would probably be better off to move on to someone else. Just as you have
free will, so do your loved ones.
When looking for a psychic, be realistic, there are scam artists out there too (just as there are bad contractors, lawyers, mechanics and accountants, there are bad psychics). If, on your quest to find a good psychic, you come across any of the following, please move on and find someone else to be your guide.
