In my grandmother’s time the local villagers were the only people who really had access to her psychic advice and guidance. Sometimes she went on trips to the city, where a few more fortunate folks could meet with her.
But today we have access to gifted psychics almost anywhere in the world. It is indeed a privilege. The global village is a truly exciting place to be. Problem is, we now have so many choices and options available to us, that we are even less likely to find what we are looking for!
Yes, not every psychic out there is ideal for your unique requirements. That is why you sometimes might have a disappointing reading with a psychic with a solid reputation, or a medium with a true gift. Some of the best psychics in the world sometimes miss the mark. Don’t believe me? I encourage you to have a look at the client reviews or ratings for any psychic available on the Internet right now. I guarantee that you will find at least one unfavorable review for each psychic whose profile you access.
The only thing a person can never have too much of is common sense ~ Kathryn Smith
Why? Well there are usually two reasons for this: the client did not like what the psychic told her, and is unwilling to accept the truth; or the client contacted the wrong psychic!
Another reason you may get a poor reading is that there are bad professionals in any field – unethical doctors, dishonest lawyers and lazy civil servants. You will also find one or two bad apples among a group of psychics. The truth of the matter is that there are some inexperienced psychics, scam artists and phony mediums on the internet. Therefore it is vital that you know how to protect your interests and find ways to have meaningful spiritual connections with the best psychics for you at that moment in your life.
So, how do you choose a psychic that is right for you as an individual? Easy, by simply following these guidelines:
Your reason for consulting a psychic reader should be your first consideration. Find a psychic who specializes in a specific field or reading method that will meet your unique needs. For example, don’t try to find a lost pet by consulting a Tarot reader – you will probably have much better results with a dowser or a clairvoyant (remote viewer).
There are people who live their whole lives on the default settings, never realizing you can customize ~ Robert Brault
Also, not all psychics are mediums, so if you are hoping to receive messages or guidance from a deceased loved one from the other side, make sure that you are consulting with a spiritualist or a medium. Some mediums also do not necessarily focus on predictions in their work, so if you are hoping for a combination of spirit communication and prophecy, you might want to consider consulting a psychic medium.
Next, it is advisable to find a reputable online service or directory, like PsychicAccess.com. Read the profiles and customer reviews of the psychic advisors who interest you. The range of psychic abilities and intuitive skills is truly varied and can be found in numerous combinations. Choose a psychic who has the most suitable set of skills and psychic abilities for your specific needs.
If you are not making use of a trustworthy psychic service or a reliable network, it is definitely a good idea to first check the credentials of the psychics you are considering. Have they been tested or verified in any way, and what is their professional experience and background? Study their websites and biographies, and if in doubt, ask them directly, or send them an email.
Steer clear of readers who conceal their true identity behind fake photos or stock images of tarot cards and crystal balls. Why would anyone even consider discussing their personal life with a faceless stranger? You have the right to know who you are dealing with. Also, try to get references from family, friends and co-workers. The best psychics often do not have to advertise. People reach them by word-of-mouth.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you ~ Matthew 7:7
Don’t be tempted by some of the fantastic claims and expensive fees you find on the websites of some psychics. If a psychic claims to be “100% accurate”, proceed with caution. And just because someone charges $20 per minute, does not mean they are the best one out there. Some of the most brilliant psychics in the world charge very affordable rates, because they have a true calling to help others… and they have enough clients that they can afford to be reasonable. Also, decide on a budget and what you are prepared to spend – and stick to it!
Most reputable online psychic services may offer a free reading or a discount for new clients, which is a great way to try them out before you spend any money. But be careful with readers who constantly bombard you with freebies, and all kinds of discounts and special offers. Any online psychic reader who is only too eager to do free readings all day long is most probably desperate for new clients.
Also bear in mind that the true professionals are only able to apply their talents full-time to helping others if they can pay their bills at the end of the month. It is a myth that a psychic or medium is considered more reputable, simply because they work for free or only accept donations. In fact, it is most often only the amateur newbies who really can afford to do so many free readings all the time. Full-time, professionals psychics always charge a fee. It is their calling, and they have to be able to do the work they feel destined to do, whilst keeping a roof over their heads.
Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense ~ Gertrude Stein
Whenever you do consult with an unfamiliar psychic, or join a new online psychic service, always look out for the red flags:
Gut Feeling. Always listen to your instincts and intuition. It is a fact that most people who consult psychics are spiritually evolved, psychically sensitive and very intuitive. You know what is best for your and you will sense when someone is not meant to be your spiritual advisor. Listen to your gut and vote with your feet, and your wallet.
Optional Extras. Beware of those who offer you additional occult services, for instance ‘spells to lift a curse’. Also, avoid fear-mongers who are keen to offer you bad news or dig up evil everywhere, in order to sell you some sort of cure, potion, magical object or psychic cleansing to make it all go away. In my opinion it is best to stick with psychics who consider themselves to be Lightworkers and, preferably, do straightforward, traditional readings. If they offer to make all kinds of things happen in your life (or make it disappear from your life) run as fast as you can, unless you want to share the karmic consequences with them. Do not tamper with the free will of others and never invite darkness and negativity into your life, because what you focus on… will become your reality.
“Let Mama decide for you Hun…” If a psychic makes decisions about your life, on your behalf, you are dealing with a spiritually irresponsible individual. The true professionals will only guide you, suggest best actions to take and show you the recommended path or direction. The final decision should always remain your own. Without that, there is no spiritual growth or mastering of your true destiny. Nobody else should prescribe or control your life decisions or choices.
Come Into My Parlor Said The Spider To The Fly. If a so-called psychic encourages you to send them more money for further ‘special assistance’ or spells, or to ensure the best outcome for you problem, just say no! You are not dealing with a psychic, but with a scammer who is trying to take advantage of you. In fact, if it happens on a reputable website, report them to the customer service section immediately!
Forever Happy Endings. Psychics who only give good news… are actually bad news! If they always tell you what you want to hear, and not what you need to hear, they are probably not being truthful or sincere, and they may even be a fake. If it is too good to be true all of the time, well then it probably is! The same goes for predictions without guidance and advice. If they only tell you what will happen and when, but not what you should do to ensure that it does happen, or what you should consider to change the outcome, then you might as well flip a coin or pick the petals off a daisy. Do not confuse psychic advice and spiritual guidance with fortune-telling. It is not the same thing.
Jack of All Trades. If a psychic claims to be able to do just about any type of reading, possess every possible form of psychic ability and use every psychic tool available to mankind, think again! Would you entrust your kidney transplant to a doctor who also specializes in chiropractics, plastic surgery and psychiatry? The true and best professionals always become specialists in their field; they focus on their most prominent abilities and truly master the related skills.
