In one of my previous posts, I talked about how you can spot psychic phonies and scams, and I would like to add more tips that may help you. Here are some things that you may need to be on the lookout for:
“I don’t use cards or crystals. Real psychics only use their minds!”
If a psychic adamantly tells you that real psychics do not use tools, then he or she is definitely wrong and is trying to make the impression that he or she is better than the rest. Many gifted intuitive make use of cards or crystal balls or runes – objects that help them quiet their conscious mind. These objects often act as a bridge where they can receive information from. Some fake psychics like to use this line so that they give you the impression that they are naturally gifted
Vague introductions and readings
Be very careful if a psychic starts with something like, “I see that you have been hurt in the past” or “you will be hurt in the future.” Who hasn’t been hurt in the past anyway?
Websites or ads that say “Guaranteed 100% result
Real phone psychics admit that they cannot guarantee 100% on any results, so if a psychic tells you that he or she is totally accurate – take this as a warning sign. While a medium or clairvoyant may tell you what he or she feels might happen in the future, even they cannot guarantee that these things will fully push through.
What a psychic does is simply read and interpret the energy that surrounds you, but you have the power to shape your destiny and have the free will to create events in your life.
Requires your personal information
There is really no reason for a psychic to ask you for your social security number or even your birthday. These details are not at all pertinent in any reading and may just be used to scam you.
Keeps asking you for money
One sign of a problem is if your psychic constantly asks you for money beyond his or her per minute or hourly rate. Some psychics require a lump sum to “clear” a curse that was put on you, or may refuse to divulge important or life changing information until you pay extra or set another appointment. The same goes for peddling candles, crystals and amulets to protect you from black magic.
Finding the right psychic for you
It cannot be denied – it is difficult to find truly gifted and authentic psychics who are honest at the same time. With so many practitioners available online and over the phone, it pays to be extra wary, so you should know how to filter them out. If you are looking for online or phone psychics, it helps to deal with tried and tested psychic networks, because they usually have a rigorous screening process that helps filter out fakes from those who really know their craft.
