A psychic reading is something that can be a very rewarding as well as a valuable experience. It is something that is not so hard to find; you can find them on networks on the web, you can find ads for them in the back of magazines, or promoted on television commercials. They are not hard to find--or are they?
With the immediate availability of psychic readers all over the world, it should be a very simple process to find one. One of the most common ways to find a psychic is to do a search on the internet. You type in real psychic readings or "authentic psychic readings." After all, with the very prevalent perception of all psychics being fake or tricksters, you definitely want to be careful in your search because you want to make sure that you are going to get a real one. Most of us know that intuition exists and there is quite a bit of documentation out there supporting the credibility of gifted persons who are able access energy and see information connected to you clairvoyantly, empathically and in other ways. Some use their natural gifts without any tools while others use their gifts using divination tools such as tarot cards, numerology, runes, I Ching, and list goes on. In short, people with special "spiritual gifts" have the ability to tune into people voluntarily and sometimes involuntarily, giving them access to hidden truths and eventualities about others.
But wait.....hold on....
Let's say you are one who has had many psychic readings. You've gone to so many and you've heard many things that sounded true, things that you hoped would turn out to be true, and you spent a lot of time and money waiting for the predictions you were told would happen, to happen. After talking to so many and being told the same things by so many, and after patiently waiting, nothing ever happens. Why is that?
It is either extremely fortunate that psychic networks are able to find thousands of genuine psychic advisers from all over the world, or, perhaps they have taken the opportunity to take advantage of the fact that many people who are hurting and vulnerable will readily believe that people who symbolize or represent spiritual integrity are authentic. Basically, they say they are psychic, so therefore they must be. Well, no, not true.
The point that I try to bring home to people is that those that represent themselves, and especially through networks (because of the sheer numbers), to be psychic are not necessarily psychic. And you should not have to call hundreds of psychics to find one real one. The reason this topic is so important is that you could spend thousands of dollars only to find yourself disillusioned beyond belief because you came to place to get answers and clarity.
THE MAIN POINT TO UNDERSTAND WHEN LOOKING FOR A REAL PSYCHIC READING
It is important to understand that the widespread perception of what a psychic is, from the seekers point of view in the first place, is that when you call one, they will tell you the "GOOD" that is going to happen in your future. After all, you most likely are calling because you are hurting and feeling in need of something good to happen or are hoping that some new situation will turn out in your favor. This is not "Psychic Reading," this is "Fortune Telling." This is the current paradigm that exists for a large number of psychic services worldwide. The so-called psychic advisers are doing their job as they have been trained to do--tell the caller something good, never tell them anything bad (and the truth is not bad, but we must not assume they even know the truth), make them feel good. This is their job!! Remember that! Their job is to make you, the caller, feel really good. And when this happens, you feel almost intoxicated with the belief in what they have said, and almost readily you accept the scenario and quite often you begin to feed off of it, even if is not true, was never true and will never be true.
So, fortune telling, that's what you're getting from large masses of available psychics waiting to take your call--it's like fast food. Satisfying at first, but oh so bad for you in the long run. Most are trained script readings whose job it is to tell you your good fortune. There are variations of course. Some are better than others and the worse cases I've seen are those who have talent and try to con you into giving them money in exchange for removing negative energy or curses. This is ludicrous. And because of this, there is a prevalent negative perception of psychics in general from skeptics and critics who clump everybody into this fortune telling category. So in order to break away from this stigma, real psychics have a job to do in order to separate them from this unfortunate reality. It is not easy because the few real ones are often working on the same networks and it's like finding a minnow in the sea.
HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING A REAL PSYCHIC READING
The answer to this problem is, of course, awareness. After you become aware of the truth about this "imitation" psychic paradigm, then your eyes begin to open, the veil is removed and the secret exposed and it begins to lose its power over you. Now you will be more careful in your selection of a psychic adviser and you will tend to not believe everything that is said in a "for-entertainment-only-type psychic reading. Where there are literally thousands of psychics waiting to take your call, there is a slim chance of finding an authentic one who represents the highest professional standard of training and education in the divination arts. Take this advice:
1. Take yourself and your psychic seriously, or, resign yourself to entertainment only status;
2. Avoid networks that do not regulate their requirements for their psychics and search for real psychic readings;"
3. Look for a private psychic consultation;
This is important. Suppose you were looking for a therapist or other professional practitioner. After you found someone, you would not go from this one to that one persistently.
4. Ask yourself, why am I doing this with psychics?
There can be deeper reasons why this behavior can occur, but is it that you "didn't hear what you wanted," or you "weren't convinced, or you "need to hear it over and over?" But, generally, when we find a professional that is good for us, we tend to stick with that person. That is what I have found with my clients. My clients usually are either new to psychic readings or they have already gone through the psychic reading circuit and are ready for authentic answers based in the Truth. Those are the people that find me. I can't tell you how many people call me daily to tell me their stories about their experiences with fake psychics including the most notorious scheme about the curse or negative block that must be removed. This is a despicable scam, but I cover this topic in my article about fake psychics and how to spot them. (See, How To Spot A Fake Psychic-Changing the "Imitation" Psychic Paradigm). Fake psychics are an abundant reality. Understanding this truth is the first step in finding a real psychic counselor.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PSYCHIC
You have to be discerning, you have to take responsibility for your life and be a part of your spiritual reading because it is your spirit and intuition that is equally at play in a genuine psychic reading. You are part it, not separate from it. A real psychic reading can open you up to spiritual awareness in you that will empower you in your life. A real psychic reading was never intended to be a substitute for you fully engaging in all the aspects of life involving choice and action. Think of life as a school, you are here to learn, to grow and that cannot happen if you are not fully engaged. Never use a psychic as a substitute for life choices because this limits you and we are all limitless beings capable of tremendous achievements. Definitely, there are real psychics who understand their true role in this type of service; but it is service, and the seeker has to be aware of how to use a psychic reading for their benefit which is also the responsibility of the real psychic intuitive in adhering to a high standard. With your awareness, a real psychic reading can work wonders.
Some Helpful Tips for Your Search
When searching on the web for a psychic reading you are now aware of the pitfalls of large networks with no standardized qualifications for their psychic advisers. This puts you the seeker at a disadvantage right off the bat.
Use search terms like real psychic readings, real psychic, authentic psychic readings, real testimonials for psychic readings about the one you are researching. In other words, be conscious about your search.
When evaluating a psychic's site, make sure it's not just a one-pager with no apparent history and just a phone number or buy buttons. If you cannot find out anything about the psychic, don't call them. I've heard a lot of horror stories about some private sites too that are just scammers waiting for you to come along. Do the following when searching for an established private psychic intuitive:
Find out how long their site has been up? You can do this by doing an internic.net/whois.html search for their domain name.
Also, search for their name in the search engines and see what's up.
Check ripoffreports.com and search for their name and see if there are any negative reports about them.
See, didn't think you'd have so much homework did you? It's not easy, but it's not impossible either. Just Be Conscious and Be Authentic With Yourself. Unless, it's alright with you to get "feel-good" readings, the above tips for finding a real adviser will help you in your search for authentic spiritual counseling.
