Determining a Legitimate Psychic

A psychic medium is someone that has the ability to speak to the spirit world and to talk to spirits.  They have paranormal powers and are able to use this sixth sense to talk to others that have passed on.  When there is a medium or a reader that is able to read the aura of others, this is a way that they explain circumstances in your life and can even determine if an event or a situation is about to happen to you.

Not all people are mediums, but all people have some psychic giftings.  There are ways that you can tell if a medium is real and that they are not just trying to take advantage of you.

Phoning Psychic Mediums

When you want to talk to a psychic medium over the phone this is called a phone reading.  This means that they will talk to their clients over the phone instead of in person.  You can find ads for phone psychics all over the internet and on billboards.  You will have those that sometimes play these roles that are really just housewives, college students or other people looking for a few extra dollars.

These people that are hired by psychic services do not have skills to talk to the dead.  They will talk to you on the phone and give you generic answers to your questions.  Some callers will get mad and will hang up and refuse to talk to these people after they have already paid a large sum of money.

If you are considering doing a phone reading, you need to check the credentials of the company and see if there have been negative comments made about them.  Check with the Better Business Bureau and see if they have done anything that is illegal or unethical.

In-Person Reading

Getting an in-person reading is something that you can schedule and then do a meeting with a psychic or medium.  Check out the neighborhood and see if it looks nice.  Find out if others have been there and know that psychic mediums do not treat you of sicknesses. They should be able to give you a reasonable rate, especially if it is your first time so that you will come back and viis thtem again.  This should be a way that you can afford to go to them.  If the area is nice, this means that they probably are doing good and this is a good thing.

Check to see what the medium tells you.  Find an advertisement of them and watch it or listen to it.  Contact them by phone and talk to them and let them answer your questions.

Ask them if they have contacted the dead and if they can offer a guarantee of their reading, if they can remove curses or if they can arrange a love match.  If they tell you yes to any of these, then know they are faking you out and you need to stay away from them.

Legitimate Psychic Medium

The psychic industry is not regulated, and it is hard to report when you are scammed and get your money back.  It is hard for the client to know if someone is valid before they put their money down.  When you visit a website or talk to someone on the phone, you need to ask for referrals.  Find out what they believe in and ask them things such as what city you were born in.  If they do not satisfy you with their answer then pick another psychic and decide not to use them.

Always be aware of psychic mediums who ask you a lot of questions and then give you vague answers.  If they are clam and knowledgeable, they might really just be pumping you for the answers to give you.

Do not talk to a medium when you are going through emotional turmoil.  Some people are scared of traumatic events and do not want to go to therapy or doctors and will look for a psychic.  This is when a lot of people get scammed because they believe they are seeking the right answers.  Don’t go to a psychic in desperation.

What to Do at a Reading

When you go to a reading, research a psychic that is known.  Get a consult with them.  Look up their name and do an internet search on them and get background information.

Compare the mediums with each other and find one that best fits what reading you are looking for.

Make sure you have your emotions in check before your reading and that you keep a check on your facial expressions and your mannerisms.  Do not have outbursts or be angry during your reading.  Let the psychic read you from inside without you having reactions.

Take the reader’s comments gradually and do not be upset if they are wrong, just trust yourself and your gut feelings.  Consult a professional or a doctor if you are feeling sick or if you are having an emotional breakdown. Talk to someone professional if you are facing depression or grief.

Report any fraudulent psychics to the Better Business Burau so that they can put this in the notes.  Don’t let yourself be persuaded to buy items from the psychic, they should never ask you to do this.  Do not answer to many personal questions about yourself, they should be able to know these things about you without you giving them away.

Visiting a psychic can be fun and revealing but you have to make sure that you take a professional approach to finding the right medium or psychic for you.  Get insurance that you are reaching a psychic that actually has powers and look for proof.


If you are intuitive then you should be able to know something before you even start.  If you feel that something isn’t right, take that as a sign of intuitiveness and do not go to that person.  You will know if something does not seem right.
