Psychic Questions Answered - Responses To The Most Frequently Asked Question
Since I created "The Guide To Choosing A Good Psychic," I've been asked this question by many of my subscribers:
"Since there are so many scams, is it hopeless to try to find a good psychic?"
My answer to this question: It depends.""
As a professional psychic myself, I obviously don't think that all psychics are scammers just trying to get your money. I've met many psychically gifted people that were very passionate about helping others – and they are good at what they do. Some of them charged some hefty fees, but the suffering they could help someone avoid made up for the price.
But I've also heard one nightmare after another. So many people have called me after they've been robbed financially, emotionally abused, and then abandoned by what they thought were genuine psychics.
This is what inspired me to create this guide. As a professional in the psychic industry, I've also had positions where it was my job to screen, train, and sometimes fire professional psychics. Knowing what makes a good psychic and what doesn't is a skill that I've developed.
So consider this - if you are like many people, you may end up getting taken advantage of emotionally, mentally, and financially. But if you are smart about it, you should be able to get the help that you need from a competent psychic. Just to give you some ideas, here's a classic example of what you are likely to run into:
Lisa is heartbroken. Her husband has just told her that he is leaving her for another woman that he has met at work – someone younger, prettier, and more outgoing. He has told her that he is filing for divorce and that he intends to get shared custody of their two children. Despite all of this, Lisa knows that deep inside, her husbands loves her and is probably just confused.
Now Lisa knows that a psychologist can't predict the future or see what her husband's true feelings and intentions are. Lisa knows her friends and family are all full of biased opinions and she really can't trust their judgments. Lisa also remembers seeing a psychic on TV that was able to make accurate insights about people that she knew nothing about. Lisa is also very hurt, vulnerable, and she wants some answers.
So what does Lisa do? She goes on to her computer, she types in "psychic" on a search engine, and up comes thousands of choices to pick from. She sees something like "Psychic - $10 for 10 minutes" and clicks on the link.
In front of her, now she has many little pictures of "so-called" psychics with convenient buttons for buying "instant psychic readings." One of these pictures is a sincere looking lady with a description that says something like "Lady Rose Marie – Honest Psychic." Lisa clicks on the button.
Just like Lisa, this is the point at which so many people make mistakes when they are looking for a good psychic. Next thing you know, you have spent hundreds (if not thousands of dollars), you are more confused than you were when you started, you feel like your trust has been betrayed, and you've wasted time that could have been spent more productively.
To get a better idea of what I'm talking about, take a look at this list of the top six mistakes that people make when searching for a psychic. More importantly, here are also the steps to take to make sure that you get the help you need from a good psychic:
Letting your emotions rush you into a snap decision - Instead, acknowledge that you are vulnerable and that you need to be extra careful - make sure that you take the time and energy to make an intelligent decision when choosing a psychic.
Picking the first thing that comes along - Instead, search around. Look for the different pros and cons of what several psychics have to offer. Also, if a psychic is available right away, you might want to question how good they are. The good psychics I know are all in demand. You usually have to wait for an appointment – just like a good attorney or doctor.
Falling for Spell/Energy Cleansing Scams – Why would you pay someone for a service in which the results are impossible to verify? There is no real way to prove if spells/cleansings really work. Most of the time, people offering these things just take your money and laugh at you for being such a fool.
Believing the claims that someone makes about their service or the results you'll get – Psychic scammers will say anything to try to hook you into to becoming their next victim – Look for legitimate endorsements from police, business owners, or other convincing sources. Look for money back guarantees, not just big promises.
Assuming that "big" means "good" – Just because a psychic is part of a big psychic network that has celebrity endorsements, or because you find the psychic on a site that has flashy bells and whistles, these things don't mean the psychic is good at what they do. Out of the $500 they get an hour for psychic readings, many of the big networks only pay their "psychics" $10-15 of that.
Most legitimate psychics refuse to put up with the second-class treatment of Psychic Networks and find some other way to share their talents with others.I'm not saying all networks are evil and that all psychics working for them are incompetent, I just want you to be aware of these hidden risks.
Choosing a psychic based on price instead of quality – What is more important – a cheap price or a good quality service? You are likely to make important life decisions based on the info you get from a psychic. If you just don't have the money for a good psychic, wait until you do or go buy a "Tony Robbins" book instead (it's better that throwing your money away on junk). You'll notice that most of the cheaper psychics don't offer money-back guarantees - what does that tell you about the confidence they have in their service?
To Summarize - Don't let the bad apples keep you from getting the help you need from a good psychic. Just be smart about it and look for the flags that let you know which way to go. Take care of yourself and keep your eye out for more updates from me.
