5 Myths About Psychics
What is a psychic actually capable of? What can a psychic do? Maybe you’re familiar with how psychics work and function, but if you’re not you may hold some common misconceptions about psychics. Today I’m presenting 5 myths about psychics that need to be cleared up, for the good of us all.
Myth #1: Psychics can read your mind
“How many fingers am I holding up behind my back?” I can’t tell you how many people make that joke around me. I also get “If you’re so psychic tell me when my birthday is.” When people ask me questions like that, I know they don’t understand what being psychic really means. Click here for more…
So let’s try to remove some of them with this list of 5 things you should know about psychics.
1.They look just like you and me
We all have this mental picture of what psychics look like. It’s usually based on the depictions of fortune tellers in those old time movies. Well, don’t be surprised if the person sitting next to you with a coat and tie on is a psychic. Surprise, surprise, they look just as normal as you and me.
2. They don’t have superpowers
Contrary to popular belief, psychics don’t have superpowers. What they do have is a very specialized set of skills based on intuition, heightened level of sensitivity and empathy.
This means they can get a pretty good amount of knowledge from someone just by basing it on how the other person walks, talks and expresses one’s self.
3. They can’t really tell the future
Don’t be disappointed. No one really can.
But, psychics have an uncanny ability to give a pretty good prediction based on your past behaviors that would make it a more logical assessment of how you’re going to act in the future.
4. They can’t talk with the dead
One of the most popular reasons to consult a psychic is to be able to talk with the dead. Too bad, that’s something they can’t do. No one can.
But, they can help you deal with your grief. They can also help you move on by giving you steps to follow.
Or they can simply be another set of ears to listen to you and not judge you so you can finally bring yourself to terms with the things left unsaid between you and the departed.
5. There are a lot of good psychics out there
Lastly, the psychic profession has continued to get a bad name out there simply because there are a lot of charlatans trying to cheat people out of their money. This profession should’ve died out already because of that.
