Eight Reasons Why There Is Still A Stigma About Consulting A Psychic

 

Eight Reasons Why There Is Still A Stigma About Consulting A Psychic

Have you ever had such an exceptional psychic reading that you wanted to tell everyone about it? If so, you probably soon discovered that not everyone shares your enthusiasm about psychics. Your experience may have convinced you that psychics are real. Yet, there are lots of others who still think psychics are just good guessers and mind readers.

As an intuitive counselor with 25 years of service, I know how many people seek help from psychics. My colleagues and I have read for tens of thousands of clients and work hard at changing the image people have of psychics. We hold ourselves to the highest professional standards. We also teach high standards in classroom settings to up and coming psychics. Why hasn’t this changed our image? Why is there still such a stigma attached to working with a psychic?

Here are eight reasons or beliefs why people still feel there’s a stigma to consulting with psychics:

1. Readings are for entertainment purposes only.

2. There is no value in having a session with a psychic where you’ll be talking about things you don’t need to know. Everything you need to know you can figure out by yourself.

3. Psychics make foolish claims. There is no scientific proof that psychic abilities actually exist.

4. You want to consult a psychic but you care too much about what other people think. You don’t care enough about what you think.

5. Certain religions deem psychic practices to be blasphemous. You may still be holding onto random religious beliefs that you heard as a child but never examined.

6. You need to have absolute control over every aspect of your life. You’re a control freak so you can’t seek out a psychic because you have no control over what they say. .

7. We live in a science based culture. Intuitive abilities are nice to have but are not required like logic is.

8. Somewhere along the way in life someone told you not to consult a psychic and it stuck with you. You think all psychics are alike and read alike. You think it’s hoaky and you have no idea how sophisticated the psychic field is today.

Despite the stigma attached, many people flock to see psychics and report they’ve had results that are life changing. They may gain clarity around a decision they have to make or feel more empowered to take an ambitious action. They may be in deep grief and needed to hear from their loved one in spirit that they’re ok. 

Psychic Readings are just one of the many alternative therapies available today. East has met West. The old stereotype about psychics is way out of date. There are still frauds and gypsies who give the profession a bad name but these charlatans are in the minority. Today people seek out psychics for more than being entertained or hearing predictions about their future. They talk to psychics about some of the most important things going on in their life.

Frequently, it’s a referral from a friend who has had success with their session that gives a person courage to try it themselves. In fact, you need to have a session yourself before you form an opinion.

8 Reasons Why Psychics Are Sometimes Inaccurate

   

8 Reasons Why Psychics Are Sometimes Inaccurate

As I read through what I’ve written, I hope it doesn’t discourage you from getting a reading. A psychic reading can be life changing when it goes well. Most people don’t realize how hard a seer has to work to overcome obstacles to their accuracy. Here are eight reasons why a psychic’s accuracy may be off.

1) The psychic may misinterpret information they receive. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that psychics are fallible. An image they see could have 100 different meanings. A psychic needs to give you what they get. If a psychic sees a blue car in your cards, they should say, “I see a blue car.” The psychic might say ” I see you are going to buy a blue car.” If that blue car represents the car you’re driving now, the psychic would be wrong. They interpreted information instead of describing it.

2) The psychic isn’t grounded that day. Like everybody else, psychics have bad days. When a psychic has an off day, it’s usually because of their ultra sensitivity. It might be they’ve done too many readings that day or have been working in an altered state for too long without a break. Maybe they’re empathic and are still carrying a past client’s “emotional stuff.” It could be as easy for them to ground as going outside for some fresh air or eating a meal. If a psychic feels too scattered that day, they should call you to reschedule your reading.

3) The psychic is too close to whom they’re reading. When a psychic reads for someone they have to be neutral and detached. When they like you or love you, they want for you what you want for yourself. It’s doubly hard to tell you if they sense things aren’t going to work out as you hoped. Sometimes, familiarity with the readee is a factor and sometimes it’s not. Psychics have regular clients too where it doesn’t seem to be a factor.

4) The psychic s picking up sentiment. Psychics can get it wrong if they’re picking up on the emotions connected to an event, instead of the event. A psychic must always remain neutral and detached. Predicting the outcome of an election is tricky because a pyschic might be sensing the collective sentiment about that candidate, not the actual outcome. When a psychic reads on the stock market the same dynamic applies. They may be detecting the sentiment of the market analysts, not on how a stock will perform.

5) The psychic got the outcome right, but the issue hasn’t played out yet. You might be only 2/3rds of the way through a particular situation. Psychics skip over the consecutive steps and go right to the conclusion. They may not have picked up on a significant event that happens in the middle before the conclusion. It may seem as if everything turned out other than predicted but you haven’t reached the outcome yet.

 

6) A psychic’s bias. All psychics are humans with opinions and beliefs. Sometimes, a psychic has an unconcious prejudice. Common biases are religious, political and/or cultural. A psychic who is a former Catholic might have a bias about marriage or abortion. If the seer leans towards socialism, they might have a bias against a client who believes in capitalism. If you’re American, you might have a cultural bias about someone from another country. A psychic can get it wrong if they’re unaware they’re reading through the filter of personal bias. A psychic needs to read to the best of their ability without bias or recuse themselves from reading.

What It Is Like For A Psychic Intuitive Or Psychic Medium To Give A Reading

7) The future changes. It’s hard for a psychic to be accurate about the future when everyone has free will. Free will means you are free to change your mind at any time which thus changes your future. When other people make different decisions, it can change their future and your future. The future is not set in stone- it’s dynamic. It’s not easy to predict. The reason people seek out psychics about their probable future is so that, if it’s necessary, they can make alternate decisions to change their outcomes.

Can Psychics Predict The Future?

8) You don’t want the psychic’s information to be right. One time I had a party of giggly women come to my house for readings. The first woman, who had organized the party, went first. Her husband had a successful startup, and  he was in the process of opening up another business. I kept sensing that his first business was going to go under and he should stay focused on only that for the next five years. She was so angry and upset with my reading that she cancelled all the other women’s readings on the spot. Six months later the housing and stock markets crashed. Natural disasters and major economic events are big game changers.

I hope this is helpful in understanding why sometimes a psychic’s information isn’t accurate.Your psychic should be at least 70% accurate, or you need a new seer. Ask a trustworthy friend if they know of a good psychic if you’re looking for one. If you have any questions or comments – please go to the top of the blog and click on Leave a Comment.

Three Reasons Why Getting Bad News In Your Psychic Reading Is A Good Thing

 

Three Reasons Why Getting Bad News In Your Psychic Reading Is A Good Thing

It seems like a simple request when you sit down for your psychic reading to ask the intuitive or medium not to tell you anything bad. Some psychics are happy to honor your request not to upset you. Here are three reasons, however, why not wanting to know anything bad may negatively affect your psychic reading.

1) Psychics are trained not to interpret the sensitive information they receive. You must know that seers aren’t omnipotent. They don’t know your entire life story when they read for you. By directing the psychic not to tell you anything bad, you’re asking that psychic to know enough about you to interpret what information may upset you. Interpreting is precisely what psychics are trained not to do. In essence, you’re giving away your power by having information that you might need to know filtered out of your reading.

For example- a psychic may tell that they see that you will be leaving your job. You might be thrilled because that’s your plan or you might be horrified. A psychic might say they see a preventable car accident. That sounds bad but maybe you really need to know this because you’re driving on bald tires. If you come for a reading – you need to let the psychic read for you. If you’ve taken the time to choose a psychic like you do other reputable service providers, allow them to use their professional expertise about the information that comes up in your session.. If you’re not connecting with what the psychic is saying- that is a topic all by itself and for a future article. 

2) Intuitive information defies logic. When you say you don’t want to hear anything bad, you’re being logical. It seems reasonable to ask the psychic not tell you anything bad. However, the information you get in a reading isn’t obtained through the psychic’s logic, it comes through their intuition, the spirit world, or spirit guides, or all three, and that’s why certain information is prioritzed. In addition, most psychic readers read with the intention to provide information that is for your highest good and the highest good of those around you. Readers who have integrity don’t eliminate information just because a client doesn’t want to hear anything bad. If readers screen out information because it’s too controversial or confrontational, then what is the sense in getting a reading? At the same time, a psychic needs to be aware if there is a sensitive subject and what they’re saying to you..

3) Psychics know that the future is dynamic and though you may hear something you don’t like, you can change the future by being proactive, making different decisions, and taking different actions. Usually, when someone says that they don’t want to hear anything bad, it’s because they think a reading is for entertainment purposes only and want to keep it light and fun. Or they think that the future is set in stone so why tell them anything upsetting that they can’t change? I believe, that in truth, there are few things that an individual can’t change about the future compared to the many things a person can change. If you hear something bad, that you don’t want to happen, you have the free will to make different choices. Changing your mind can change your future. If your psychic follows your instructions and screens out information they might think is bad, you may miss an opportunity to do a course correction. By changing your mind and making a different choice, you’ve changed your future so something better can happen.

Are Psychic Mediums Open to the Spirit World 24/7

Are Psychic Mediums Open to the Spirit World 24/

Working with the spirit world is an honor and the psychic mediums who work with spirit consider their work a calling. Mediums can bring solace to someone who’s lost a loved one and to those in deep grief, closure to someone who didn’t have a chance to say good-bye, and comfort to those who just want to know that their loved one is okay.  Spirit communication is a  sacred experience for both the medium and the person who is the recipient. What do psychic mediums do to manage themselves when working with in this realm?

There is an idea that because psychic mediums communicate with the spirit world that spirits pop into the medium’s day to day activites at anytime and anywhere. Theoretically this is true but in practice, it’s not a good idea. Rest assured that a spirit will find a way to get through if they have an ugent message. Mediums, however, needs to practice self-care and set boundaries with the spirit world and most mediums limit the time when they are available for spirit communication. Staying open 24/7 is unhealthy for the medium for many reasons. Here are four.

Staying open: zaps a medium’s energy making them vulnerable to illness; is exhausting for a medium and weakens their connection with the spirit world which muddles the information; doesn’t allow the psychic medium to have even a somewhat normal lifestyle; and creates the scenario where spirits overwhelm a psychic medium as they try to get a message to their loved ones on earth.

In fact, psychic mediums are trained to limit the time that they are open to spirit communication. Mediums are trained to formally open up to spirit communication before their readings and to formally close down at the end of their readings for the day. Mediums use various types of imagery, such as opening a window, to signal to the spirit world that they’re ready to work. Some mediums signal the spirit world they’re open by reciting a prayer.

There are exceptions when a medium doesn’t formally open up and close down before communicating with a spirit. You’ve probably heard a medium talk about a random spirit coming to them while they were taking a shower or driving their car. Mostly, this occurs when that medium is about to give an individual mediumship reading or a demonstration of mediumship for an audience. Certain determined spirits who want to communicate with their loved ones may show up to secure their spot with the medium ahead of time.

Another exception to the rule is when a medium is dealing with a spirit that has met with foul play or is aware of a situation where there was foul play, and that spirit is trying to get the attention of someone on earth to solve a crime. (I know this from personal experience) Most of the time, however, spirit communication is not urgent, and the spirits wait until the medium is working before they attempt to come through.

Working with spirits requires discipline. Opening up and closing down is just one of many energy hygiene practices a medium must follow to maintain their well-being doing this work.

I hope this gives you some insights into the work and life of psychic mediums. Please feel free to contact me via the contact page on my website if you have questions. Warmly,

Ten Things Paranormal Investigators and Psychics Look For In Buildings With Alleged Paranormal Activity

Have you ever wondered how it’s determined that a building is haunted? Most people and many paranormal groups get their information about hauntings from TV shows. Unfortunately, you can’t rely on paranormal television programs for your education. Their priority is to entertain you and more often than not, the integrity of the investigations are compromised to gain TV ratings.

Paranormal investigations are fun and no-nonsense at the same time. In an investigation,, paranormal investigators and psychics play different roles and have different priorites.A paranormal investigator looks for scientifically verifiable facts such as capturing random unexplainable images on film and random mysterious sounds on audio equipment. A psychic uses their psychic senses; Clairaudience, Clairsentience, Clairvoyance, Clairolfactory, and Clairgustance to detect energy or a presence. I do both.

Here are the top ten things I investigate to determine if a building is haunted:

1) Interview people who live or work in the allegedly haunted building and find out why they think there is paranormal activity. Did they see, hear, feel, smell or taste something unexplainable? Find out where in the building this occurred.

2) Look for natural causes for these unexplainable occurrences.      

3) Take a baseline measurement of the EMF levels in the building. Excessive EMF can cause people to have hallucinations. Rule out or make note of excessive EMF levels.

4) Sit quietly in a meditative state in each room, tune into the energy and ask if there are any spirits there who’d like to communicate.

5) Place my hands on the walls and furniture to see if I get psychic impressions of prior events.

6) Look for unexplainable activity such as flickering lights, a mysterious breeze, or a door closing on its own.

7) Take note of scattered random dimes and pennies lying around.

8) Leave a voice recorder running in a room and review later for strange sounds.

9) Conduct an EVP session and review the recording for strange sounds.

10) Use a video camera to film in a location where paranormal activity.has been reported.
