Anyone who’s spent time on my website or read my articles knows I’m on a mission to expose psychic scams. I’ve made it my life’s work to protect people from con artists and help them find authentic and trustworthy psychics.
I’m passionate about this because genuine psychics have helped me through some of the hardest times of my life. I did have to go through some trial and error to find them however. I made the mistake of going with the first psychic I encountered without doing any research or reading any reviews and got scammed.
I thought in-person psychics would be better so that I could get to know them and have a stronger connection. Well, it turns out I was dead wrong about that. Unfortunately, the psychic industry is full of crooks who’ve trained their whole lives to scam vulnerable people.
Fraudulent psychics teach themselves how to read a person’s body language, facial expressions, and how to get people to trust them with their personal information and finances. I was ready to give up and write ALL psychics off as fake but I decided to give online psychics a shot.
I’ve learned a lot about the world of psychic advisors, mediums, energy healers, and clairvoyants since then. I discovered that online psychics are more genuine and authentic because they don’t have the same tricks up their sleeves. They can’t cold-read a person by being in the same room as them to study their behavior.
Being able to watch how a person’s body shifts when a certain topic is brought up can show a well-trained con artist their weak spots. They can then use that sensitive subject to break people down emotionally to where they end up giving them everything.
Online psychics don’t do that. They have no choice but to rely on their natural gifts and abilities. Psychic advisors have an incredible sense of perception, heightened intuition, and unique minds that most don’t. They are a special set of people who can see, hear, sense, feel, or even taste things beyond the boundaries of the physical world.
They feel things sooooo much deeper than the everyday person. Empaths pick up a person’s feelings and experience them in their body as if they were their own. This allows them to form a deep connection with people and relate to them on a whole different level. They’re able to use this bond to help their clients.
Following my terrible experience, I’ve taken it upon myself to keep this from happening to as many people as possible. I try to write helpful articles that help people get the most value and guidance from their reading. I’ve spoken to hundreds of psychics now in my lifetime and like to think I’ve learned a thing or two.
For this article, I interviewed some of my favorite psychics from Psychic Source, Ask Now, and Path Forward for their words of wisdom. I wanted to see if there were things they all mentioned or brought up despite not knowing each other.
One of the main things the psychics all agreed on was that a lot of clients ask the wrong questions or ask them the wrong way. This results in them receiving less than helpful information. They all spoke about how the questions they are commonly asked are either too broad, vague, or nonspecific.
When consulting a psychic, the way you ask your questions determines the type of answers you’ll get. Life is a complicated and complex subject, ranging from problems with love, money, self-esteem, depression, grief, etc. For optimal results, the psychics suggest breaking down your questions and concerns into categories and approaching them individually.
For example, a person who is not only reeling from the loss of a loved one but also experiencing problems at work might be tempted to mention all of that at once to the psychic. This is fine, but each of these subjects is its own situation and deserves its own time.
Instead of bringing up all of your problems at once, take some time to write them all down. Jot down your questions, concerns, and problems in a notebook. When done, go through and rank them one-by-one in order of how bad they’re affecting you. Once you’ve decided which is the most bothersome you can bring that one up on your first reading.
This way the psychic can focus all of their attention towards helping you with that problem or concern. This will lead to more precise and informative guidance and advice from them. Once you’ve tackled that topic together then you can work your way down your list until they’re cleared up.
The psychics all told me that a great psychic reading starts before the reading even takes place. They said that it is in a client’s best interest to do a little bit of work before reaching out to them. Aside from writing out a list of your most pressing concerns, they said it’s important that you also do some soul-searching about how and why these things are affecting you.
Are you wanting to change careers because you’re not making enough money or because it’s not making you feel fulfilled? Are you wanting to be in a relationship because all your friends are or because you’ve done a lot of self-improvement and are ready to give your love to someone?
It’s a good idea to keep these realizations to yourself at first. You don’t want to start the reading and immediately tell the psychic what you’ve discovered about yourself. This is for your reference only. A talented psychic will be able to get to the root of these things on their own. You don’t have to understand your feelings first if you prefer not to or if you just need help now- that’s totally fine.
Doing this just helps you gauge whether the psychic is on the right path or not. If so, you can be confident that the guidance they give you is relevant to what you’re experiencing. It also helps to think about your feelings and writing them down ahead of time because it reminds you to bring them up during the reading.
Psychic readings can be intense and it’s not uncommon to find yourself extremely emotional. Once you’re in that state, it’s easy to forget a topic you wanted to talk about. This is especially true if you’re consulting a medium. Making contact with loved ones or the spirits of those who have passed is bound to make you emotional.
Once you’ve written your thoughts and feelings down, form these concerns into questions. Be specific with your questions instead of making them too broad. Instead of asking, “When will I meet my soulmate?” Ask something like, “How can I improve my chances of meeting my soulmate soon?”
Instead of “Will I change jobs soon?”, ask “Will switching careers give me more sense of purpose?” This ensures you get the most helpful information possible. Psychics don’t see the future like they make it seem on TV. They use their heightened intuition, supernatural instincts and enhanced perception to solve and understand things. This naturally gives them an idea of what your future will be like.
Anytime a “psychic” says something will happen on a specific date, chances are they’re fake and are trying to scam you. Humans have free will and the course of your future is constantly changing. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want in life. Psychics are there to help you reach your goals and dreams.
If you’re planning on consulting a medium to connect with the other side, it’s a good idea to give the intended spirit a heads-up. Just because you can’t hear from the other side like mediums can, doesn’t mean THEY can’t hear YOU. Let your loved one know the night before the session that you’re planning on seeing a medium.
Invite them to join the reading and tell them how much it would mean to you if they showed up. This step brings the spirit closer to you and assures them that they’re missed and loved. It makes them feel less shy and more comfortable, increasing the chances they’ll answer the medium’s call.
The spirit mediums I spoke to said that 9 times out of 10 they’re able to make contact when their client set their intentions the night before. If the medium can’t connect with the spirit, don’t feel bad or blame yourself. There are several reasons why a spirit doesn’t respond or show. I explained this more in depth here.
I was surprised when the psychics told me that a lot of clients spend a long time explaining things. I figured this was a good thing for them but they said it’s a big no-no. They don’t like for you to give them the answers to everything because it interferes with their process of discovering and understanding you as a person.
The more they can perceive on their own about you, the more useful their insight will be. They prefer you just ask them one question at a time, then wait for their response. They said sometimes people will ask them several questions back-to-back and then start answering their own questions. Or at least what they think are the answers.
This takes up a lot of time during the reading because the psychic has to follow up your thoughts with their own. They have to unravel what you’re thinking and give you their point of view and advice. Psychics need to make a living like the rest of us and have to charge for their time.
The amount you pay depends on how long the reading was. You definitely don’t want to waste precious time thinking out loud or talking to yourself. Use the time wisely and let them be the ones doing the talking. Once you’ve mentioned your concern, the psychic should take over from there.
They shouldn’t be asking you a lot of questions either, unless it’s to ask you if what they’re saying makes sense. If it does, great! If it doesn’t, don’t be afraid to ask them to explain it to you better.
This is something I always tell my readers to do so I was happy when the psychics mentioned it. I realized in my early days of consulting psychics that sometimes the things they’d tell me didn’t make sense at the time. Even after an explanation, it just didn’t seem relevant to me. They would tell me to write it down and keep it handy somewhere.
Then I noticed that afterwards, out of the blue and unexpectedly, this message or information I had dismissed would suddenly make perfect sense! Other times, I would only remember how it fits or applies to me after I had taken some time to process my thoughts.
Keeping notes is also a good idea because even though it isn’t common for psychics to give you exact dates or timelines, they CAN give you very specific information. You’ll want to keep these details handy for when you need them. Think of it as taking notes in school for a pop quiz.
Your mind is probably all over the place during a reading making it easy to forget specific words or phrases. If you don’t remember what was said, you might be tempted to fill in the gaps yourself. This isn’t going to help you very much in the long run. You need to be able to recall things exactly as they were said.
This is especially true if you spoke to a medium. There’s nothing worse than forgetting what your loved one wanted you to know. Your reading is sure to be a satisfying and rewarding experience if you follow these tips. You’ll also have a stronger connection with the psychic and this is good for both of you.
It relaxes you and makes you feel more comfortable which in turn allows you to be more open to the guidance you’re given. I hope this helps and please reach out to me with any questions or comments! Check out my reviews page for the best online psychic readings.
