Finding the Right Psychic for You: Avoiding Scams and Fakes
Searching for the perfect psychic can be difficult, but it’s certainly not impossible. While the industry is replete with psychics who are only out to collect a check, there are just as many honest, reputable, high-quality psychics who truly want to help.
Whether you’re trying to find a medium, a tarot card reader, or anything in between, use the tips posted in the following sections to guide you in your search. We know how difficult finding a good psychic can be, which is why we’ve developed this blog post. Below we go into detail about exactly what you should be looking for when evaluating psychic options, and also what you should avoid.
Remember, anyone can say that they’re a psychic, but distinguishing a true psychic from a scam artist requires some insight into what you should be looking for. By using the strategies outlined below, you’ll be on your way to finding the best psychic for your needs in no time.
Know Exactly What You Want
You’d be surprised at how many people go into their psychic search process without even knowing what they wish to achieve. What do you want to know? Do you want to communicate with a relative who’s passed on? Or, maybe you need some information regarding your love life? Maybe you want to receive some guidance in regard to your career and/or financial issues?
These are the types of questions that you should be able to firmly answer, prior to starting your search for a psychic. Mysticmag.com’s experts say that knowing exactly why you need a psychic should be a priority in your search. Some other considerations you should keep in mind include the following:
● Does the religion of your psychic matter?
● What do you hope to gain from this experience?
● What’s your budget?
Ask Around and Use the Internet
One of the best ways to find a high-quality psychic is by asking around. You’d be shocked at just how many psychics there are all over the world, but many of them simply don’t advertise their services. Pagans and similar types of people would be a good starting point, but many non-pagans also use tarot card readers, mediums, etc., so you should definitely keep an open mind!
Obviously the internet has completely changed the world of psychics. Not only can you get readings online now, but you can also do a quick Google search to find a reputable psychic in your area. The thing with online searches, though, is that you need to be careful about reading reviews. Do your research, read all of the reviews about a particular psychic, and then make a decision. Don’t rush into this.
How to Select a Psychic
After you’ve asked around, searched the web, and made a list of a few different options, the next step is to start making calls to each psychic on your list. The purpose of doing this is to have short little “interviews” with each psychic to determine whether or not they’re what you’re looking for.
Here’s what you should be asking your list of psychics (during the short “interviews”):
● What’s their background?
● How many years have they been providing this service?
● Do they offer any specific or special service?
● How much do they charge (i.e. what’s their rate)?
● How do they perform their readings?
● Do they do tarot? Medium services? What about angel card readings?
Many people avoid using psychics who come from different religious backgrounds than them, while others don’t care as long as the service is good. These are some of the top things to keep in mind during the research phase.
If you’re looking for a specialized service, many psychics don’t advertise, which means that you’re probably going to need to do some digging around to find what you’re looking for. Either way, using the internet and real-world referrals is your best bet.
Making the Final Decision
After you’ve conducted your short little phone interviews, there shouldn’t be anything more to do other than make a final decision. Remember that you often get what you pay for when it comes to psychics, so making a decision based on cost alone isn’t the best idea.
During your initial phone interviews, it’s a good idea to get a sense of how the psychic communicates. That’s why calling up potential psychics is a good idea, because you’re able to determine which one might be the best fit for your personality.
