Seven Steps to Oneness - Journey to a Whole New Life

How To Choose A Psychic Who Is The Real Deal (and What To Avoid)

Laurie Diagonal CNMost of us take the time to research and seek a referral when it comes to selecting a new doctor, attorney, school for our children and even our hairstylist. When it comes to seeking out a professional psychic, I have found that very few people take the time do any research when it comes to consulting a psychic.

A psychic reading session shouldn't be taken lightly. You are consulting with another person about the intimate details of your life and are seeking sound advice and guidance as you share your hopes, dreams and fears. As a professional, I take my role as an intuitive counselor very seriously, which is why I stress the importance to the general public to take their time and make the effort to do their research when it comes to consulting with a professional psychic.

Food For Thought As You Look Into Your Potential Consultant:

  • Ask them how long have they been in this line or work.
  • What about their reputation, what are others saying about this reader?
  • Use Google as a resource by typing in their name to see what pops up. Do they have a website?
  • Go to their office or where they “read” at. Do you get a warm, loving, and comfortable feeling?
  • Do they have an extensive client base if they have been reading for a while, they should have a substantial client base.
  • Does the space they provide offer privacy?

Signs of A Good Psychic

  • They have boundaries keeping your relationship a professional one.
  • Your consultant isn't in it just for the money (charging astronomical prices). Shop around to see what the going rate is in your area.
  • They have a sincere desire to help their clients.
  • They do not waste your time talking about themselves and their troubles.
  • They give you tools to help transform, heal and empower you.
  • You can feel their loving energy.
  • You feel hopeful, optimistic and have new tools and new thought processes to assist you as you move forward in your journey.

Warning Signs

  • They tell that they are the only one who can help you.
  • You should not leave your reading knowing more about your psychic than they know about you.
  • Instilling fear upon you, you leave feeling hopeless and dis-empowered.
  • Encouraging you to come back frequently to spend more money with them. It is not necessary for any client to see their psychic more than once a month. Yes, sometimes things pop up but one should allow healing to transpire in between sessions.
  • Discrediting others in the same profession ex. You don't want to go to …. I am better than they are.
  • Leaving the reading depressed and exhausted, feeling depleted. This is a sign of someone who uses their client's energy for their own benefit. (Yes, this does happen and it happens often)
  • Do they believe it is acceptable to execute a session while they are under the influence of any substance? (This is a huge no no!)

Just because they say they are psychic does not mean they are!!!

How to Get The Most Out of Your Session:

  • Come in with an open mind.
  • Be prepared, write your questions down ahead of time. Often your consultant will answer your questions before you even ask them. This is an excellent sign that your psychic is in tune with you and is in their higher channel.
  • Be centered, plan your day so you are not rushed if possible. Scattered energy does not help with your session. Every session is a 3 way process you, the reader and spirit.
  • Try not to be negative. Saying no,no, no if you feel there isn't a connection, then say so. An honest reader/healer would honor you when you feel they off the mark and would appropriately end the session. Every reader knows within 5 minutes if there is a clear connection.
  • If you would like the session recorded ask ahead of time if they allow you to record the session.
  • Be specific with your questions. Instead of asking: Will I ever be happy? ask What can I do to shift this energy for me to be happier? Is there something I am missing or  should let go or integrate?

Each reader has a unique gift, ask about their specialties ahead of time and be sure to be specific about why you are coming to them. For example, while scheduling you may say, “I am at a crossroads and would love some clarity with my career at this time. I would also like to see which loved ones in spirit are with me these days.” If mediumship is not their specialty this is the time for them to mention this to you.

My intention, is for every client to be sent on their way with hope, love, empowerment and a new perspective than from what they came into my office. There are many, many wonderful intuitive counselors out there who embrace their psychic gifts and use for the benefit of sharing information to assist their clients. For many they have tried every practical method to help them on their journeys and have found that something was still missing. A connected and authentic psychic is often just what's needed to find and put the pieces into place.

Hopefully this little bit of information makes the difference for you between an “Ok” reading session and a great one!!
