There is a lot of skepticism around psychics and their ability to predict the future and there are some people who seek to disprove and discredit psychics. There are also some people who will come for a reading because they want to test the psychic and they have no real desire to find out about their future. A psychic can often detect that they are being tested in this way and they will either set out to prove their abilities through their psychic link or they will end the session.
A genuine psychic reading is one where you are receiving your information from an experienced and professional psychic who is working in the light. This is a psychic who links with spirit guides, and tunes into their psychic resources to bring you insight, guidance and predictions for your future. In a genuine psychic reading you are likely to be given some evidence of some past experience or situation.
If you are hoping to get a genuine psychic reading then you will need to establish early on in the reading that you are getting a connection. If you feel uncomfortable or the reading does not seem to be flowing then the chances are that its not going to be a good reading for you. This may not mean that it is not a genuine psychic reading it is simply that you are not psychically connected to that psychic.
There is no way of telling whether you are getting a genuine psychic reading, however, you can get an idea if something doesn't feel right. There are some people who work as psychics who have acquired certain methods of getting information out of you. They may ask too many questions and you come to the session with the feeling you should be the one asking the questions. They could also get you to lead them in a certain direction and again you will get a feeling that something is not right.
Your instincts should tell you a lot about whether you are getting a genuine psychic reading and it is very important that after the reading you feel empowered, enlightened and uplifted. You should not feel disempowered or afraid of anything after you have had a reading. You should certainly not be told that someone has put a spell on you and you should pay a large sum of money for the psychic to rid you of this.
If in doubt you should try to find out a little more about the psychic and check out their credentials, they should have a website and may belong to some regulatory body. A genuine psychic reader will have many repeat clients and should be happy to give you some evidence of their recommendations.
Let’s take a few minutes and discuss the accuracy of psychic readings. Are psychic readings ever wrong? Is a bad reading a sign of a bogus reader? Do even really GOOD psychics, with authentic, genuine & viable gifts, ever completely and embarrassingly misfire on a reading in a major league way? Or is a BAD reading simply a sign that the psychic is NOT “sensitive” at all… and only really has been good at guessing, and fooling people up to this point?
In this article, I’d like to take a quick and insightful look at psychic misses, mistakes and see why even some of the BEST intuitives, mediums and clairvoyants sometimes completely STRIKE out! Sound like something that’s been itching to be addressed for you as well? If so… continue reading as we take a closer look below!
Psychics and Statistics
Want to know the truth? Even the very BEST psychics are NOT going to have a hit rate of 100%. It’s actually, statistically impossible for a reader to get everything right. Want to know why? Because like many famous mediums have described in detail, a reading is often filtered through the prism of personality and perspective…and if often MORE about symbols than interpretation than very clear statements of fact.
For example… the famous TV medium John Edwards once described what he does as akin to having a conversation through a very thick, frosted window. You “see” the person on the other side… you “hear” some of what they are trying to say, but yet… it can appear (at times) very muffled, fuzzy and hard to decipher. Other mediums have made very similar analogies… with some saying it’s akin to speaking to someone at the bottom of a pool. You get the broad strokes (no pun intended) but it’s not necessarily super easy to filter exactly what the message is without some degree of interpretation.
So does that mean that they are NOT actually tapping into a source of energy, intuition or understanding that can TRANSFORM your life in major league ways?
Of course it doesn’t. The truth is, regardless of a psychics ability to discern the message… JUST the fact that they are able to have the conversation, or “tap” into the energy itself (be it a spiritual energy… or simply your OWN intuition) is an amazing gift in of itself. The problem is… the skeptics try to focus exclusively on the mistakes, or the “misses” and try to discount the entirely of the reading (or the psychic’s entire history) based on bad information, partial hits or even messages that are wrong outright.
The key takeaway is this…
In my view – that’s just silly, and shows a complete lack of understanding of psychic abilities in the first place. No one (who is real, anyway) will EVER tell you that a psychic is 100% right. It’s the overall rate of success, and benefit, that a reader brings to the lives of their clients, friends and readings overall… by which they should be judged!
