5 Things you Should Know About Psychics

The psychic profession is full of intrigue and mystique. This is because there is a lot to this art than meets the eye. It’s something most people will never be able to fathom.

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.

But, it hasn’t. Simply because there are more psychics out there who are honest and are able to provide the service people need.

4 Biggest Mistakes Selecting a Psychic

4 Biggest Mistakes Selecting a Psychic

It happens.

We think we have the best one but down the line, we come to realize that somewhere along the way we may have been mistaken. It can happen to anyone.

You may be the smartest CEO or the most average guy and you chose someone to help you out with something and they fail to deliver. The sad thing is you fell for the hype.

Why is this relevant to the psychic profession?

There is no official regulation for psychics just yet. There are scattered organizations all over the world where psychics belong to and they don’t have any uniform bylaws. And worse of all, there is no regulating body screening these psychics for competency in their chosen field of expertise!

What you have is a profession where anyone can claim that they’re one and there’s no one that can say otherwise.

But psychics still perform a very important role in society. And people need psychics to talk to, get advice from and basically have a better hope for the future.

So, you have to be wise about picking a psychic to help you out.

Here are 4 biggest mistakes selecting a psychic people make.

  1. Falling for the hype

Like any good marketer, a psychic is going to advertise his services and only show his best foot forward.

Don’t fall for the hype! If what they’re saying is too good to be true, walk away!

  1. Believing psychics have superpowers

Psychics are people just like you and me. The only difference between them and you is that they have a better understanding of the flow of energy and how one’s past decisions can affect their future.

This is what psychics are truly known for: giving a clearer insight and advice for you.

They can’t really tell you the future (unless you want a reading) and they can’t communicate with the dead. And don’t even get me started on asking about what the winning numbers are!

  1. Not doing a background check

Good psychics get more clients. More clients mean more exposure. And the amount of satisfied client is a good indicator of just how good a psychic is. so, if you want to get the best, ask around and get a referral.

  1. Believing that price is a good indicator of skill

Some people believe that you get what you pay for. This is true in some cases. But never let price be the indicator when it comes to psychics because there is no established pay rate yet for these people!

So, if you try to avoid these 4, you should be able to get a really good one!

Who Is Giving Psychic Readings A Bad Name?

A barrel of apples is usually going to yield some bad ones. And you’re bound to find them if you dig deeper until you reach the bottom.

This is the same with psychics as a whole and as a profession. You’ll find the really good ones with shiny reputations up top while the rotten ones are down at the bottom. Sometimes some of the rotten ones manage to find themselves nearer to the top and some of the good one’s sink.

It’s an uncontrollable factor in the psychic profession.

But, who is giving psychic readings a bad name?

Although psychics have been around for a very long time, it is only recently that an effort to formalize the profession has been taken seriously. And though others would say that being psychic isn’t really a legitimate profession, the real one’s soldier on to bring about a better understanding of what a psychic is, what they do and how they do it.

So here are some things you should know about psychics and how to spot a sham when you meet them. A real psychic won’t make unrealistic promises. If they tell you they can connect you with the dead or provide you accurate readings of your future without gathering data, then chances are you’re dealing with a scam artist.

These are the people who are giving the psychic profession a bad name. More on this you can find here:

As a working psychic medium I feel I need to yet touch on this subject matter again owing to the forums I see on the internet and the ratings and feed back given to us in the profession.

I will say and agree that there are many charlatans in my profession but equally there are many excellent psychic mediums too. However before you start to criticise us, you need to have a basic understanding of how the laws of the Universe work and also many so called Psychics will jump down my throat when I say this, “It’s impossible to foretell the future”. The genuine psychics and mediums amongst us will understand this, but let me explain.

We are all subject in life and after death to the laws of the Universe, namely there is cause and effect, every thought and deed we have and do will cause ripples of energy and effect others. One you will know well as ‘Karma’ i.e. you are accountable for all your actions and what you give out you will get back tenfold, us Spiritualists know this as ‘Compensation and retribution for all souls’. To put it even simpler, if you bear bad thoughts and actions towards others you will have to pay for it either in this lifetime or in another but positively if you do good deeds and think positively for others you will be rewarded. Positive thoughts and deeds attract positivity and likewise negativity attracts negativity. This is known as the ‘law of attraction’. Read more…

A real psychic bases his (or her) readings on the data they’ve collected from you. They’ll take note of your behaviors decision-making factors and other personality quirks and provide you a reading based on that. Instead of connecting you with the spirit world, a psychic can help you get over the death of a loved one by going through some steps to bring about closure.

Love advice can only be given accurately based on the information you provide about the other person. Mostly it’ll be a reading based on you and what you should expect from a relationship if one should come about. For best results, bring the loved one along.

And another thing, psychics look just like you and me. They don’t have to dress up to look mystical or spooky (although that’s a personal preference) so don’t be surprised if a psychic in normal clothes gives you a pretty accurate reading without looking like a weirdo!

Lastly, if what they say is too good to be true or you even have a hint that they’re faking, just walk away. It’s not worth losing your money over.
