Is Your Psychic Real or a Scam?

By heaven | The Psychic Blog

In my last posting I talked about what to expect when you have a reading with me.  Today I’m going to talk with you about what I call the “Neon Sign Factor”.  There are many psychics and psychic mediums that are real, genuine, and operating in the light.  Unfortunately, there are equally as many, if not more that are not real, are looking to scam people, or are just not operating in the light with the right intentions.  If you are in an area where there are shops, or psychic reading salons, as they are sometimes called, there will be a neon sign saying “Psychic” or “Palm Reader”.  By no means am I saying that all of these are scammers, but in this blog I am going to give you some indicators to look for if you happen to be in one of these types of shops, or even if you are doing a reading by phone.

More often than not when someone is looking for a reading they have a situation that is going on in their life that they are hoping to gain insight into, having a relationship issue, or someone close has passed away and they are hoping to connect with them.  In situations like this the person going for the reading is vunerable.   When we are vunerable we sometimes miss things that would not otherwise get by us.  There are times when people are just going for a reading because it would be fun to do, but that is really the unusual type of reading.  But these guidelines can help no matter what the reason is that you are looking for a psychic reading.

A lot of times it will start with being lured in with really inexpensive, or a cheap price.  That is because knowing that clients are vunerable, the money end of the scam comes at the back end of it.  I don’t mean to imply that all the scams start out as completely inexpensive either.  Some have gained confidence and will charge more in the beginning.  Part of the reason for the inexpensive draw in is to gain the client’s trust, and build a relationship, keep the client coming back often. 

Another indicator is your psychic reader telling you not to tell anyone what you have been told in your reading.  There is no reason in the world why, if you choose to share something that has come through in a legitimate reading that you cannot.  This is a red flag.  Along the same lines is taping a session.  In fact, I encourage people to record their sessions, that way I know they can be paying full attention while we are in the session and not distracted by trying to take notes at the same time, and then it can be listened to again after the session.  So, if  you are told you cannot tape record your session, ask why?  Now I can tell you that there may be something that comes through in a session that spirit might not want on the tape, and they can make it sound different, or it is blank, but that is not and should not be the decision of the person doing your psychic reading.  If you bring your own recording device you will know for sure it has not been tampered with, and it’s under your control.

This next indicator can go either way, but I list it anyway as just something to be aware of.  If there are two people and the reader says the other person cannot stay in the room, be sure it is for a legitimate reason.  In my sessions I will allow someone to stay as long as the client is okay with, and they are not concerned that something may come up that they do not want anyone else to hear.  Sometimes when there is more than one person in the room a second fee will be charged because something could come up for the other person, this would be true in a psychic medium reading.  It would not be the case for a tarot card reading, or a palm reading.

If you are in your reading and you are told that you have “a black cloud over you, negative energy following you, a curse on you”, any of these types of statements are a lead in to begin the scam.  Another one is if you are having a relationship issue and you are trying to get back together with someone, or even get someone to leave you alone and this psychic can help you with it, can fix it, can heal it, these are all things that are indicators of scams.  Sometimes they will tell you to put a certain amount of money in a white envelope and then pray over it, sleep on it and then bring it to them.  In one case you will be told that they can do candle magic to fix the issue and the candle is an enormous amount of money.  There is no amount of candle magic, or you giving someone a large sum of money that is going to fix any of the above listed “issues”. 

When anyone is having things go wrong in their life, be it in a relationship, job, or however they are effecting you, no one else can fix it but you.  It means there is a life lesson that you must learn in order to move forward.  No one can learn your lessons for you, you must walk that road yourself.  You must take the class yourself.  When you learn the lesson you then begin to move forward.  Sometimes that lesson is patience, sometimes it’s tolerance, or communication.  It’s always a life-lesson. 

In closing for today, remember psychics and psychic mediums can be very helpful when they are real and operating in the light.  When they are not real or just scamming, they can do more damage than good.  Be aware of that when you are looking for a psychic or a psychic medium.  Do your research or get a referral from someone else who has had a good experience.

Until next time, I send Universal Love and Light to you.
