How do you find a psychic? That’s a question that comes up every now and then.
Different time periods looked at psychics as either mentally unstable, speakers of the gods, speakers of the devil, or someone filled with demons. Advertising your ability could earn you a favored seat at court, a life locked in a dungeon with the other mad people, or death through fire, water, or torture. Luckily today, someone claiming to be psychic doesn’t have to worry (too much) about being killed; however, there are still places where being a psychic is considered akin to madness, and if not mad, then you are considered a con artist, a fraud, or a charlatan.
Therefore, many true psychics either choose not to share the knowledge of their ability with anyone, or they only share it with a select few. There are those who are willing to bring psychicness out of the closet, so to speak. Some of us do it through writing or other more passive or quiet demonstrations, while others try to make a living from their natural abilities. It is usually one of the latter that most people encounter when they go looking for a psychic to answer those questions regarding life and love.
Those that choose not only to share the knowledge but to actually try to make a living with their ability tend to fall into two categories: Those that are empowered by the knowledge they have and wish to share, and those that are empowered by the money or attention they expect to gain.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with someone trying to make a living from their psychic abilities. It’s no different than someone trying to make a living from their ability to write, paint, or build a house. However, if the person is more enamored of the money or glory that they can get with their talent (whether painter, business man, or psychic) then, you need to use caution.
So, when you go looking for a psychic, try to notice whether the person is more interested in how much you’re willing to spend or in giving you your money’s worth of information. It’s that difference that you need to notice and be aware of when you contemplate asking advice from a psychic. If the psychic says they can only tell you what they know, that they can’t (or won’t) always tell you things that will make you happy, or that they believe the information or message is the most important thing, then you’ve found someone whose agenda isn’t hidden. They’re not doing it for the money (although they expect to get paid) and they’re not doing it for the publicity or attention; they’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do, and because the information might help you, make you feel better, or help you understand something.
But even making that judgment comes down to listening to yourself, listening to your inner voice, because there are a lot of frauds out there, sad to say. However, if you listen to your own inner voice, you will usually find yourself drawn to someone whose agenda is the same as yours. Someone who wants to use their abilities to help you reach your goal.
Now, if your goal is to debunk psychics, then you will probably never find a “real” one, or even if you did, you wouldn’t recognize them anyway. However, if your goal is honest, such as a need for closure by hearing from a loved one, or a genuine interest in learning about life and gaining enlightenment, and you listen to your own inner voice, the path will most likely lead you to where you need to go. If all you’re looking for, though, is someone to make your decisions for you, someone to lean on, then following the path will most likely lead you to a psychic willing to make those decisions for you—for a price.
Of course, if you’re unwilling to listen to your inner voice, then selecting a psychic becomes more of a crap shoot. Based on your inner fears and drives (impatience will select the first one willing to give you an appointment, greed will settle for the one charging the least, and martyrdom will go to the one that notices how abused and forgotten you are) you will find yourself facing someone who may or may not have your best interests at heart.
So, if you want to find someone who can read your pasts, tell your future, or contact a loved one who has passed on, follow your inner voice. You may have to pass through the 7 degrees of contacts to get there, but when you arrive, you’ll know that it’s most likely someone you can trust, that it’s someone who has the knowledge and is willing to share it with you—good or bad.
