How much does a real psychic charge?
Do I need to spend hundreds of dollars to get a real reading, or can I find someone local, or by phone who is really good AND really affordable as well?
If you’ve ever shopped around looking at psychic readings, you may be shocked to find out how much they cost. Believe it or not, depending on where you live….you can literally spend hundreds of dollars on a 30-60 minute reading, especially if you are seeing a “specialist” who has unique gifts most mainstream psychics don’t. (most commonly found with mediums and psychic detectives)
For example? Years ago I desperately wanted to speak to a well known psychic medium I not only watched regularly on TV, but whom several people I know and respect professionally assured me was the real deal in person.
Unfortunately for me…….
When I went to see her, she not only wasn’t any good, but the reading was SO bad I literally thought about asking for a refund about half way through. (I chickened out….and kept my mouth shut, instead!) That reading cost me over a thousand dollars, and I swore to myself I’d never make that mistake again.
The good news?
In the many illuminating, inspiring and enlightening years that followed, not only have I gotten hundreds of amazing readings that have been entertaining and affordable, I’ve also managed to “crack the code” when it comes to finding great deals on all sorts of psychics as well.
I’m going to share with you 3 of my favorite ways to save BIG money on genuine psychics, mediums and clairvoyants….and quite often, with very little risk as well. (in other words, you won’t find yourself like I once was….sitting in a fancy living room hundreds of miles from home, knowing you just wasted a TON of money)
1 – Get involved with a local psychic meet-up organization or community group.
I can’t tell you how much this has positively affected my own life…as now I can talk about the things I’m interested in without people rolling their eyes and glazing over with boredom! I’ve found a local meet up in south florida, (where I live) that has several events per week, and it’s been a great way to make friends with others in my local community who share my passion for the paranormal.
The BEST part? About half of my local chapter are professional psychics, and they’ve become some of my closest friends. (which means, they often read me for “free” and only take money when I insist that they do)
Find a local psychic Church
Sound a bit out there? It shouldn’t! There are 2 types of Churches that use mediumship as a primary form of prayer, and where I live, there are both Spiritist and Spiritualism Churches that are VERY cool to visit. (and I’m Jewish, too…..so anyone can join!)
Every week they have an open reading session after services, and while a donation is expected (about $25 or so) you can get a great, detailed reading in a supportive environment for what I think is a fantastic price.
Obviously this is the big one…and there were more than 1 million readings done in 2011, and that figure is expected to grow significantly with each coming year.
The truth is, you can find world class psychics and mediums who work by phone and more often than not….at a price point that is below both of the other methods above.
The other advantage of phone readings is that they are often 100% guaranteed by the network or service who employs the reader….meaning that if you aren’t happy with your reading you can get your money back to boot! (and a big reason I’m such a fan of psychic readings by phone as well..:-)
