Real psychic readings can be super-duper helpful tools in life. But (yep, unfortunately there’s a but)… as with any area of life, there are fake psychics who would happily take your hard earned money and feed you a boloney sandwich.
Today, let’s chat about how to get a true psychic reading.
Tips on Getting Real Psychic Readings
Imagine you set up an appointment with an intuitive reader or medium. You have some important questions to ask, and today, you are going to get clarity. Oh joy!
You arrive for the reading.
It’s going well.
Socks? Knocked off clean across the room!
Or…maybe it’s not going so great. Now what?
Here’s how to know if you’re getting a real psychic reading:
Tip 1: Trust Your Intuition
You might be thinking… My intuition isn’t that great, that’s why I’m having a reading. Duh!
I hear ya. It can be tricky to use your intuition to make decisions about your own life, especially when you’re not used to it.
That’s because intuition is like a muscle. If you don’t use it, it gets all flabby and out of shape. And when the first day of summer comes, you stay covered up in a parka at the beach instead of rockin’ your hot bikini bod.
But we’re not talking about using your intuition to make a big decision. We’re talking about checking in with your “gut”.
If something feels off with the intuitve reader or medium, trust your vibes. Politely end the reading and leave.
Tip 2: Ask the Universe for Help
I used to think that the universe didn’t have time for me. Whose going to send me a sign about picking the perfect paint color when there are people starving, ya know?
But then I remembered that the forces in the universe are pretty amazing.
I mean – they do keep the earth spinning on it’s axis and all. If the Divine can handle that, they can also handle helping you and me with whatever we need.
Make it known to the Universe that you want to know the truth. Set the intention. This alone will help guide you to someone who gives real psychic readings.
Then, sit back and let the Universe work it’s magic.
Tip 3: Don’t Offer too Much Personal Info
I’ve had clients that have come in (especially for mediumship readings) and given me lots of details about their loved one in heaven, including their name and what brand of underwear they wore (OK the underwear thing only happened once).
The point is: In real psychic readings, you don’t need to give a ton of information. Actually, it can make it more difficult for the intuitive or medium to read you.
It’s totally cool to validate information, just don’t give away the farm, OK?
- Yes, that makes sense! or
- No, that doesn’t resonate. Can you explain further?
Real psychic readings are magical when the energy flows. A two-way communication between you and the reader helps.
But you shouldn’t give everything away.
Can you get real psychic readings online?
Yes, you can – but you have to be careful. Since 2012, I’ve met some very real psychics and mediums who choose to work online.
I have a friend who gives readings while her kids are in school. She’s done in time to get them off the bus and, if one of the kids is home sick, she simply doesn’t give readings that day.
What About Free Online Readings?
Many online psychics will give you the first 3 or 4 minutes of your reading for free.
In all honesty, I think this is a terrible idea because…
In my almost 20 years of experience giving and receiving readings, free 3-minute readings are notoriously bad, (3 minutes is simply not enough time to get insight).
Instead, find a reputable online psychic reader that you can afford. There are some really great ones out there, you just need to know where to look.
My absolute favorite psychics are at Oranum. I love that you get to see and hear all of the psychics so that you can pick someone you totally resonate with. Check them out right here, they’re wonderful!
When trying to make a connection with an Oranum psychic, ask yourself:
- Do I feel good?
- Do I feel like this psychic could give me deeper insight?
- Do I connect with him/her?
- Does this reader feel trustworthy?
Above all, trust your gut!
Signs that you’re not getting a real psychic reading
Here are a few tips on spotting psychic scams:
Tip 1: Lots of talk about nothing
The psychic will talk… and talk… about… nothing. In other words, trivial things that are not provable. The information will be vague – like it could apply to anyone.
I learned of a “psychic” running an email scam where everyone got the same reading. Eeks!
Tip 2: The reading doesn’t feel good in your heart
Lots of people seek out real psychic readings because they want to know about their future. That’s cool, but if the psychic advises you in a way that doesn’t feel good in your heart and soul walk away.
Also, if the psychic advises you in a way that makes absolutely no sense – walk away.
If you’re a school janitor and the psychic tells you that within a year you’ll be CEO of the company… well, me thinks not!
Tip 3: The reading is totally wrong
Of course, we’re all human and psychics and mediums can make mistakes and get their signals crossed. After all, this isn’t an exact science.
No psychic or medium is 100% accurate 100% of the time, but, if the whole reading feels completely off and flat-out wrong, then… Houston, we have a problem.
It could be that the reader is just having an off day (even the best athletes have an off-day sometimes).
If the reading makes some sense, but isn’t knocking your socks off, listen to the rest of the reading if you choose, and then decide whether or not to take the reading to heart and act upon it.
If the entire reading is WAY off, you can request to end the session.
