Q: What are the signs a psychic is good? How can I tell if a medium or spiritual coach is genuine? Are all psychics created equal…..or are there big differences in the types of strength of intuitive ability?
Every day we get some type of variation on the question of how to find legitimate psychics. People see readings on TV, (like Kim Russo, Theresa Caputo or other similar celebrity style readers) and wonder if ALL readings work the same way, or are they scripted for Television.
The truth is, some of the best ways to get genuine psychic or spiritual advice can be found in your local phone book. There are many gifted readers working in just about every city, town and county in the USA (and around the world) and they are often far more accessible than higher priced “famous” names.
Another great way to find a psychic?
Meetups. Just about every area has local meetup groups, and they are a great way of bonding and building real realationships (and getting real readings) from local professionals who work in the intuitive industry.
Phone networks are a highly appealing choice for many….with some world class readers being found on low cost phone networks as a way to pay the bills and augment their income otherwise. (I know several world class psychics who work for services like Psychic Source or other similar networks, and charge a fraction of what you may pay for a premium reading from a better known reader even in your local community)
Do beware of psychic scams and other attempts to separate you from your hard earned money. Stories like the popular one below from XO JANE do no one in our industry a service, and unfortunately….while rare, DO happen far too often for me.
I was not new to getting readings when I sat down in front of Julie* (name changed to protect us all) (also I don’t remember it). My friends and I frequently shelled out $5 and $10 for readings at county fairs and the like when we were giggling, goody-goody teenagers. So when my good friend asked if I wanted to have a girls’ night at a hip local bar that would have a psychic doing readings for $20, I thought it would be fun.
And I really, really needed some fun.
I was in a terrible time in my life. I had just finished grad school and had zero direction. My job ended with school and I had no money and was this close to losing my apartment. I was borrowing money from my parents for cat food. My boyfriend had dumped me six months previous and I couldn’t get over it and “dinner” was frequently a bottle of red wine from the local convenience store.
