Have you been fooled by a psychic or paid through the nose for a psychic reading that left you feeling frustrated? Before I became a professional psychic, it happened to me too, not once, multiple times. What I’m about to share with you, I wish someone had told me before I wasted my time and thousands of dollars.
The #1 problem is your emotions skew your point of view
Even if you graduated from Harvard or Oxford you could still be prey for a psychic scammer. I had a distressed Ivy League graduate call me for a session. She said she’d stopped in at one of those popup psychic store fronts with the neon sign outside and a few crystals inside. She was curious to get insight to her love-life so she paid $10 for a mini-reading. Here’s how it went:
Ivy league graduate: What do you see for my love life?
Psychic reader: This is a mini-reading, I can give you a yes or no answer.
Ivy league graduate: Will I find love soon?
Psychic reader: Yes.
Ivy league graduate: When?
Psychic reader: I can tell you for $25.
Ivy league graduate gives psychic reader the payment.
Psychic reader: No.
Ivy league graduate: Why not?
Psychic reader: I can tell you but it will cost $400.
Ivy league graduate: $400, why so much?!
Psychic reader: Do you want to find love or not? You can leave if you don’t want to.
Ivy league graduate: Of course I want to find love, that’s why I’m here.
Few moments of awkward silence before the graduate gets out her credit card. Once the transaction is processed, the session continues.
Psychic reader: You are cursed and until the curse is lifted, you will not find love.
Ivy league graduate: Can you get rid of the curse?
Psychic reader: Yes.
Ivy league graduate: I want you to remove the curse.
Psychic reader: That will be $10,000.
Ivy league graduate: $10,000?!
But she didn’t ask why so much. All she could think about was that it was not an option to stay cursed for the rest of her life and never find love. She was from a wealthy family and could afford it. She paid the psychic curse removal fee.
The graduate told me that the psychic whispered some words under her breath and gave her a crystal to take home for protection and to remove the curse. The psychic said it would take about 4 weeks for the curse to be lifted.
4 weeks passed and no romance for the graduate. She was in high anxiety. So, she called the psychic and a man with an eastern European accent answered and said the psychic she wanted to see wasn’t available but she could come and see someone else who could help at another location. The graduate went to another store front with a violet neon sign emblazoned with the words: Accurate Psychic Readings. This time the graduate paid $15,000 for the session.
Back to my session with the Ivy league graduate.
“How can I help you? I asked.
“I want to know if I’m cursed and will ever find love?” she said.
“I don’t believe in curses. You’d only be cursed if you believed that you were because you’d act accordingly to fulfill the fake prophecy”.
“I feel so stupid. My father’s going to kill me,” she said.
“Why?” I asked.
“I spent over $25,000 on seeing a psychic”.
How does a smart person end up in an embarrassing situation like this?
Desperation. How do I know this? Because I’d suffered a similar fate and at the time I was desperate. I had to know why the guy who I’d fallen head over heels for had gone AWOL. I’d see one psychic and they’d spew out some hogwash that made no sense to me so I’d frantically ask around for another psychic referral or look in the classified sections of holistic newspapers, this is before googling something was the norm.
The funny thing is after seeing a slew of psychics. It wasn’t amusing to me at the time. Almost every psychic I visited apart from one really good one at The College of Psychic Studies in London, I’d end up tuning in for the psychic reader and giving them insight and walking away with none of my questions answered to my satisfaction. Eventually I got the memo from Spirit: that was to: trust my own intuition which led to me becoming a professional psychic.
