How much should a real psychic reading cost? $100? $300? More? Less? Help!
Let me share a little secret with you in this industry that far too many learn the hard way. But first…..let’s explore WHY there is so much cynicism of psychics and mediums and professional clairvoyants PARTLY because of how much so many in the profession charge.
I had a conversation a few days ago with a very prominent “skeptic” of psychic mediums at a local community group. (one that is comprised MOSTLY of professional spiritual workers and healers)
This individual, for whom I have a lot of respect…..is a well known local physician.
Surprisingly, after a few minutes of conversation, I found out he was very open minded about the idea of spiritual realities, life after death and the notion that our “soul” is not confined to the body.
(which is unusual – as most hard core skeptics find the whole range of spiritual topics, and realities silly)
I asked him why he was so skeptical of psychic mediums, IF in fact, he believed that there was a possibility that we continue on after death.
To me…..if you believe THAT, how much of a leap is it to also think that some of us, if not everyone….has the ability to communicate with those in spirit.
He said – because if they REALLY had the gift, I don’t think they’d need to charge $500 an hour to do it. As a matter of fact, I would think that anyone who really could communicate with spirit would be entirely disinterested in money, fame, prestige and power, and to me…most of these psychics on TV seem more concerned with celebrity, than credibility.
I asked him -
What about a doctor who is really, really talented……and a very good healer, but who charges hundreds or THOUSANDS of dollars for his or her appointments? Isn’t that the very same thing?
He didn’t answer……but I could tell I got him thinking, and that was good enough for me.
Here is the good news:
If you can’t afford a celebrity psychic, or some famous overpriced medium, you don’t need to see one.
There are plenty of amazingly talented intuitives who work by phone for a fraction of a fraction of that price, and plenty more who can be found in your local community for great rates as well.
For example – one of my FAVORITE psychic readings of all time cost $18. (and was with a local reader where I lived at the time…..so good and amazingly accurate it would convince ANY skeptic that something special had happened)
My worst experience was with a famous celebrity medium who we’ve all seen on TV – cost me well over $1000 and was a total let down.
(and as an author and professional publisher in the spiritual niche…….I’ve had hundreds of other experiences that have been both incredibly enlightening, dubious and disappointing, and just about everywhere else in between)
Don’t think that you need to spend hundreds of dollars to “test” a psychic. You don’t. You don’t need to open your wallet. You just need to open your mind.
