The psychic reading industry and New Age communities are full of false information and con artists. The more research you do, the better equipped you’ll be to a) decide if investing in a psychic reading is best for you and your life circumstances and b) to find someone you trust so that you have an empowering experience.
How do you know if you’ve had a wonderful psychic reading? You feel clarity and peace at the end of your session. This doesn’t mean your life is suddenly perfect and all your problems disappear overnight however, you have a clear roadmap of what to do next, feel more confident to follow through with action for your life’s decisions and a feeling that a heavy weight has been lifted from you.
Here are 3 psychic reading myths to help you avoid scammers and to feel good about the psychic reader you decide to hire.
Myth #1 You can’t change your future
Just because a psychic says something will happen to you doesn’t mean it will happen. You create your future from the present moment. Whatever a psychic says to you, it is not set in stone!
In my early twenties I was at a bar in London and this guy walked up to me, grabbed my hand without my permission, looked at my palm and said, “Oh you have a very short life line, you’re going to die within the next year.”
“I don’t agree with you. Are you trying to scare me?” I asked.
“Well, you’re gonna die soon,” he said.
I was freaked out for a nanosecond took a deep breath, centered myself and a quite calm voice within me said, “Don’t listen to the guy”. I walked away from him swiftly.
What damage do you think this scammer could have done to someone’s emotional wellbeing who didn’t trust their intuition?
Tip: Do not trust unsolicited advice. If you didn’t ask for an opinion, don’t listen.
Myth #2 A psychic knows everything
If a psychic knew everything why wouldn’t they be a billionaire, win a Nobel Peace Prize, know the future of the stock market, run for President, have the passwords to all your online account logins, win the lottery jackpot?
A good psychic’s job is to bring to your attention blind spots in your thinking, clarify if anything is weighing on you, give you spiritual tools to increase your vibration, help you increase your compassion for yourself and others. Everyone has blind spots, even the best psychics. A psychic reader is a human being, not God.
Tip: Don’t be naive! Use your muscles of critical thinking. You have the ability to generate solutions. Work with a psychic to learn how to increase your own intuition.
Myth #3 The psychic is always right
I was casting for a psychic TV show in London and the way I’d decide if it was a good fit to have someone on the show was to psychically read the psychic who was reading for me. This one woman came highly recommended. She was an internationally acclaimed celebrity psychic.
Here’s an excerpt from my book, “Unleash The Psychic In You,” of what she said to me in her casting audition:
“I see a red sports car. Do you know someone with a red sports car?” the psychic asked.
“No,” I said.
“Do you know someone with a sports car?” the psychic asked.
“Yes,” I said.
“A boyfriend?” the psychic asked. “No,” I said.
“Who?” the psychic asked. “My Dad,” I said.
“Okay, he has a message for you and you’re going to meet someone with a red sports car,” the psychic said.
Spirit will often give images clairvoyantly as a code to gain deeper insight. The psychic took this image literally. I want to share some more of this experience with you.
“You wear big hats,” the psychic said. “No,” I said.
“You’re getting married,” the psychic said.
“No, I just split up with someone,” I said.
“I see you going to Tunisia,” the psychic said. “You do?” I asked.
“Yes, you’ll be going to a wedding in Tunisia this summer and I see you wearing a big hat,” the psychic said.
I’m not kidding! See what I mean about exploitation of the sixth sense? Just because a psychic says you’ll do something doesn’t necessarily make it true. You have free will. A psychic can see your probable future. That future definitely wasn’t mine.
“Do you know someone whose name begins with the letter “D?” the psychic asked.
“Yes, go call him afterwards. There’s something he needs to tell you,” the psychic said.
And finally the piece de resistance, “My guides are telling me to tell you it’s time to go to the dentist,” the psychic said.
Tip: Just because someone is a psychic doesn’t mean they have the wisdom or insight you’re seeking. Don’t be blindsided by famous or celebrity psychics either. Some of them are excellent and others are terrible. Do your research first by reading online and asking around. However, trolls can write mean untrue things too, therefore practice using your common sense combined with your own muscles of intuition.
In conclusion, I’ve gone to many crappy psychics and a handful of brilliant ones. This is one of the reasons why I love to teach people how to use their own intuition because wouldn’t you rather be able to gain your own flash of insight when you wake up anxious in the middle of the night rather than reach out to a psychic hotline?
