When you hear the word “psychic” you probably envision a woman who is dressed to the T with hair scarves and bracelets. But what you probably wouldn’t envision is someone who really knows the future and can actually help you figure out your life. Stigma is an unfortunate part of the psychic field. But did you know that you can find a real psychic who actually taps into the field of divination? Here’s how you can find one in your area.
Finding a psychic can be tricky. Whether you’re looking for a Tarot card reader, a medium, or someone to give some basic advice or entertainment, it’s hard to tell who’s good at what they do, and who’s just out to take your money. There’s no criteria for becoming a psychic or card reader—anyone can claim to be one—so it’s important to do your homework when you’re out shopping for a psychic, so you don’t get stuck with a bad one.
Before you begin looking for a psychic consultant, ask what it is you hope to attain. Do you need someone to help you communicate with a dead relative? Do you need guidance in matters of life and love? Do you prefer your psychic to have the same religion as you, or can they follow some other spiritual path? All of these are things to consider before you pay anyone money. Figure out what you’re looking for, and, more importantly, make a list of qualities you don’t want to see in a psychic. You’re the consumer, so you are allowed to be choosy. After all, you’re the one who’s going to be spending the money!
How to Find a Psychic
There is a difference between a real psychic and one that is pretending to be one. We’ll get into that a bit later, but finding one shouldn’t require you to have the same extrasensory skills. A genuine psychic will be invested in your questions and provide you with an accurate and reliable response to your inquiries.
Once you’ve determined what you’re looking for (and what you aren’t) start asking people in the community for recommendations. The Pagans you know are probably the best place to start, but if you don’t have any Pagan friends yet, don’t worry. Plenty of non-Pagans consult Tarot readers and mediums, and they’re usually happy to talk about their experience. If you have a local metaphysical fair that you can attend, this is also a good place to meet psychics. The best part is that many of them will have competitive pricing at a fair, so you can check out a variety of people and see who you like best.
Be sure to check with your local Pagan shop if there’s one near you—they’ll probably be happy to give you some names, and warn you away from people with a bad reputation. You can also check the Internet and phone books, but truly, the best way to find a reliable psychic is through word-of-mouth. Once you’ve got these resources, use them to put together a list of psychics to contact.
Finding a professional who can give you a solid reason starts by opening up Google. Simply type in “psychic” in the search engine and you will likely get thousands of local listings. Look for a psychic that has reviews and be sure to read through a few of them. You should also look at multiple professionals before you decide on one.
You can also ask friends and family if they know of a good psychic in your area. And if worst comes to worst, you can always look for online psychics who have experience doing readings.
How to Tell If a Psychic is the Real-Deal
There are a few ways to distinguish good psychics from those who are trying to scam you out of money. A few tips we have for you include:
-They have ESP. ESP is actually used by detectives and other official organizations to get more information through sensory perceptions.
-They admit if they are wrong. Real psychics tend to admit when they are wrong or aren’t picking up anything in your reading. Honesty is a component of a real psychic.
Finally, once you’ve got your search narrowed down even further, you should be able to make a decision. One of the advantages of speaking with potential psychics on the phone rather than corresponding via email is that by talking to them, you can get a feel for who makes you the most comfortable. Be polite and courteous–when you schedule your appointment, remember that you should always call if you can’t make it, so your psychic can book someone else in your time slot. Getting a reputation as a “no-show” client could make it impossible for you to get an appointment with any psychic in your community.
