If you’re looking for a psychic, it’s hard to know where to start. From psychic phone lines to spiritualist churches, via that woman your aunt’s hairdresser knows – how do you know which psychic is right for you?
First, Understand What You Want
There are many different types of psychics and psychic readers. The first step in finding the perfect reader for you is to ask yourself what you want from your psychic reading. Are you hoping for advice on the best time to do something? An astrologer would be your best bet. Do you have to make a choice between conflicting options? A tarot reader could offer helpful insight. Do you want a general overview of where your life is heading? An all round psychic can offer this. Or are you desperate to hear from a deceased loved one? In that case, you need a medium, not a psychic (no, they’re not the same thing).
Do you want to see a psychic in person, or would you prefer a phone or Skype reading? Some people prefer psychics who use tools – such as tarot cards, angel cards or runes – because if you have a record of which cards were selected, you can then do your own research into the meanings, to underline the messages you are given. Others prefer psychics who just use clairvoyance. These things are all a matter of personal preference, but it’s helpful to have an idea of what you would like before you start looking for a psychic.
Having established which type of psychic you would like to consult, the next step is to ask around among friends and family for recommendations. Nothing beats a strong personal recommendation from someone you trust, and if you find one, it would be sensible to go with it.
If you can’t find a personal recommendation, do some research to find several potential people. Look for testimonials on their websites. Are they a member of a known national organization? Do they offer any kind of satisfaction guarantee? For example, many psychics offer the first 10 minutes free, and if you’re not happy with how those 10 minutes have gone, you do not have to continue or pay.
Another good way to find possible psychics is to visit a psychic fair – typically, there will be many psychics there for you to choose from, and you could always ask someone that you know has just had a reading what they thought of it.
If you’re searching for a medium, ask local spiritualist churches for recommendations, or go along to watch several public demonstrations and choose from among the mediums you have seen working.
Trust Your Instincts
This is important – ideally, your chosen psychic will be someone you feel at ease with. As you’re researching possibilities, you’ll probably find yourself drawn to some more than others. Discount those where your gut doesn’t give you the right feeling.
In order to get the most from a psychic reading, you’re going to need to be open and honest with the psychic, and you need to know that they will work honestly and with your best interests in mind. Instinct will help you narrow down your final choices, so don’t discount that little voice in your head.
