Whether you're getting your first Psychic reading or you're looking for a new trusted Psychic Advisor, it's important to know how to tell the real from scam artists. Here's how.
Looking for Legit Psychics
Unfortunately, con artists do exist in the world of Psychics, and the bad stories are the ones that make the news. Famous Psychics like Sylvia Browne and Miss Cleo and their criticisms are enough to put anyone off from getting a Psychic reading. When you hear the disturbing stories of so-called Psychics conning wide-eyed folks out of tons of money, it's all too easy to write off the whole business of Psychics as one big scam.
However, legit Psychics do exist, and when you find the real deal, you can gain a valued ally in taking control of your life. The key is knowing how to tell the real Psychics from the bogus con artists just looking for a quick payday. There's no government agency that oversees or licenses Psychics, so it can feel like a challenge to separate the real from the bogus. Still, if business practices build on greed instead of clients' growth, they can find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
The con artists know how to tease information out of clients in a way that makes it seem like they have a sixth sense, then tell them what they want to hear. It's especially common to find these unscrupulous folks working in the realms of money and love.
So, how can you tell if a Psychic is legit? Try these tips:
Tune Into Questions
If you're chatting with a purported Psychic who starts asking you question after question, that's a signal they may be trying to scam you. Of course, some questions are necessary when working with a client. But for the most part, real Psychics will do the talking themselves. Let the Psychic do the talking, and don't say tons about yourself or answer too many questions at the start.
Seek Out Specific Info
Real Psychics will give you incredibly specific information, without prompting you at all. For example, without asking any questions that might let them guess the information, a legit Psychic may tell you the name of a loved one who has passed on or give you a detailed physical description of someone you're discussing.
So, if a Psychic asks if the name David means anything to you, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Just don't give them lots of info ?— a real Psychic should be able to provide those details without prompting. Someone who's legit will know what your crush David looks like, or how your great-grandfather David passed away, without you volunteering that information.
Stay Away From Talk of Curses
Is a so-called Psychic telling you that you have a negative entity or you're cursed, then offering to get rid of it for just this one-time fee? Yeah, that's a con. No Psychic can make anyone do anything. If someone offers to cast a spell or proposes a get-what-you-pay-for solution, you're likely talking to someone who isn't a real Psychic. Real mediums aren't going to ask for money to remove negative energy, spells, or hexes. They're going to offer guidance ?— real, actionable, human-based guidance ?— that can help you reach your own #goals.
Avoid Psychics Who Use Scare Tactics
Legitimate Psychics don't say things that are going to scare the person they're supposed to be helping. That goes beyond spooky stuff like hexes and curses, which discerning clients like you might be able to quickly spot as something untoward. For example, a Psychic telling someone they're going to die may seem like an unsettling premonition ?— but the goal of real Psychics isn't to scare you.
Real Psychics will use the information that comes to them with the goal of helping their client. Telling you something scary, unless it can be prevented, isn't helpful. So, if a Psychic is telling you some frightening stuff the future holds unless you pay up, that's a surefire sign you should look for another Psychic.
Protect Yourself in Times of Turmoil
If you're in the midst of a period of emotional turmoil, you'll want to be extra careful. Fraudulent folks may not be able to truly see into the future, but they sure do know how to pick up on and play off of people's fears. It's best to test out a new Psychic when you feel relatively calm and can practice self-control because if you're feeling desperate, you can inadvertently spill facts that help a scam artist lure you into thinking they're providing help.
Your expressions, mannerisms, and even the way you dress can tell a false Psychic a whole lot about you. Scam Psychics know how to interpret your appearance and reactions. If you stay calm and don't give away information through emotional outbursts and the Psychic can still hone in on specific details, you'll know you're speaking with someone real. Also, if you're struggling with physical or mental health issues, you should always seek the help of a trained medical professional.
Look for True Guides
Real Psychics don't just offer tiny peeks into the spirit world. If you're working with someone legit, they're going to act as a guide into the supernatural. Anyone can offer plain old information, but real Psychics can help you find a way to grow. Real Psychics are there to comfort, heal, and inspire you. A scam artist may ask you to pay exorbitant fees for questionable services, but a real Psychic will offer affordable advice about love, money, and more that gives you a clear course of action to take your life into your own hands.
