7 Ways to Spot a Fake Psychic

Are you looking for a psychic? If so, be sure to look for the 7 signs of a possible fake psychic before trusting your hard-earned money to them!

7 Signs Your Psychic is a Fake:

Sadly, there are people in this world who are interested in nothing more than stealing your money, and yes, fake psychics are included in that list. If you are looking for a psychic it may be difficult to tell whom to trust. After all, there’s no board-certification required for someone to become a psychic. There’s no Doctorate or other University-sponsored degree in the paranormal. There’s not even an Association or other State or Federal organization that tests and certifies each and every psychic prior to their going into business.

So, how do you tell if you have a real psychic? That’s not so easy, but it IS easier to tell if you have a fake psychic. That’s because fake psychics will commonly slip-up and reveal themselves for what they are in one or several of 7 common ways.

If your psychic is exhibiting one of these 7 signs then you should take note and be careful, your psychic just might be a fake!

1. Your psychic is listed with problems with the Better Business Bureau

If the psychic or psychic company you are interested in using has a “D” rating or worse with the Better Business Bureau, watch out! That psychic or psychic company just might be a fake.

To be clear, there are literally thousands upon thousands of psychics and psychic companies in the world, and the Better Business Bureau only lists a handful of those companies. Just because your psychic is not listed with the Better Business Bureau does not necessarily mean your psychic is a potential fake.

Also, the Better Business Bureau does not determine whether a psychic is real or not. The Better Business Bureau only provides information about what other customers report about the service, or customer service, they received from the company.

However, if your psychic IS listed with a “D” rating or worse with the Better Business Bureau then proceed with caution! Your psychic just might be a fake.

2. Your psychic wants extra money to clear a curse on you

A very common trick of fake psychics is to tell you sometime during your reading that the reason for your (or your family’s) misfortune is because you have a curse (or negative spiritual energy or other such terms) on you, and that it will take money in the form of more readings, or expensive candles, crystals or other items to remove the curse.

However, it’s far more likely that the only real curse on you is the curse of having found your way into the clutches of a fake psychic. Believing that this curse on you is real is probably the closest thing to a curse you’ll actually ever have.

Most of us have misfortune in our lives not because of curses but because of events or conditions that often are not in our control. If you find that your psychic tells you about curses that are placed on you are the root cause of you problems, and that they can fix your curse by you providing them with more money, watch out! Your psychic just might be a fake.

3. Your psychic guarantees you results

Your mother was right, there are no guarantees in life. Guess what? There are no guarantees with psychics and their results either. If a psychic is offering you a guarantee that they will make something happen for you, like making someone fall in love with you, or making your life better by removing a curse from you (see item #2 above) or guaranteeing that you’ll be getting whatever it is you want, be careful.

Mediums and psychics don’t actually make anything happen at all. In fact, they simply “read” the psychic energy that is present around us, or is present from the spirits of those who have passed on, and communicate their interpretation of that energy back to you. If your psychic is making guarantees to you about making something happen for you then it might be a good idea for you to carefully reconsider using that psychic. Your psychic just might be a fake.

4. Your psychic asks for your Social Security number or other sensitive financial information

No no no! For all of you in the United States: Do NOT reveal your Social Security information to anyone that does not need it for a very important reason. The Government may require that you enter your social security number for getting a passport. Your bank or mortgage company may require your social security number for setting up a loan or other account, but your psychic should NEVER need your social security number, period.

If your psychic asks you for your social security number out of the blue then stop dealing with that psychic immediately. Your psychic just might be (more than likely is) a fake.

5. Your psychic continually changes their phone number and other contact information

Psychics in good standing with the public do everything they can to ensure the public can find them. After all, it’s good for their business if they can establish many different ways for people to contact them when looking for their services. Staying in one place and using one phone number for a long time is a benefit.

If your psychic is constantly changing phone numbers, or business locations, or both, then be cautious. People who don’t want to be found usually end up changing their locations and other contact information rather often. If they don’t want to be found that means someone, or some organization, may be looking for them.

To be fair, everyone moves in their lifetime, but if your psychic is constantly moving or changing phone numbers then be sure to ask more questions before trusting them. Your psychic just might be a fake.

6. You have a bad feeling about the psychic

According to Char Margolis, the famous psychic, everyone possesses the ability to have intuition, a way to tap into the universe’s psychic energy. If your intuition is telling you to be cautious, or to flat out not trust someone, then it’s probably a good idea to carefully consider what your intuition is telling you.

If you feel like the psychic you are interested in is not a good fit for you then you’re most likely right. Trust your instinct, especially when your instinct is telling you to be careful. Many times other people in our lives will refer us to someone who they simply adore, but when you meet that someone you do not feel the same. That’s OK. Each of us has different needs, and what works great for someone else may not work for you.

If your intuition is telling you that you are not a good fit with a psychic then trust your instinct and look elsewhere. Your psychic just might be a fake.

7. Your psychic asks you leading questions

A good psychologist can use leading questions to slowly and carefully pry our innermost thoughts out of us. Without realizing it, we provide information to the psychologist that helps them understand what makes us tick emotionally.

Likewise, a good psychic can pry information out of us without us realizing it. Sometimes this is helpful, especially if the psychic is trying to help us overcome fear or anxiety about the reading.

However, this use of leading questions can be put to bad use by those fake psychics who are only interested in taking money without providing us value. They ask us seemingly innocent questions, and our answers provide them with information that helps them rephrase it in such a way that it seems like they have clearly read and understood our psychic energy.

Be cautious about how you answer questions, especially early on in your relationship with your psychic. Try to answer the question, but try not to add in any extra detail or other information that a dubious fake psychic might re-spin to make it sound like they knew more about you than they actually did.

If your psychic is asking you leading questions then be careful. Your psychic just might be a fake.

In summary, the above 7 signs of a fake psychic are not to be an exhaustive or complete list of all the signs of a fake. But they are the most common signs, and if your psychic exhibits one or more of these signs then proceed with caution.

Your dreams good or bad are always about you and what is happening in and around you. So if your dreams are bothering you in some way absolutely don’t ignore them. Bad dreams need to be dealt with.

What Is Psychic Development

Like anything else when you have a talent or gift you develop it to its full potential. The same is true for psychic development. In order to develop psychically you first have to accept that it exists. Everyday we tune into our psychic selves without even realizing. How many times a day do we have an inner voice that tells us what to do?

The first thing on the road to psychic development is to track our psychic awareness. We need to start paying attention to those everyday occurrences that we have up until now taken for granted. The more you are aware of these daily occurrences and feel comfortable with them, the more you will start your psychic development.

Pay attention to all the coincidences you experience and how they affect you. You can even write them down and the feelings you experience. Are there any patterns of similarity you experience with a coincidence? You may start to notice that the experiences you call coincidental may actually not be so at all. It may be your higher consciousness guiding you into or out of certain situations that before now you were conditioned to call coincidental. The same goes for hunches.

Do your hunches pan out as reality? They may actually be guidance from another element that you never considered. You may be subconsciously getting information from other realms or higher consciousness. Do you get urges out of no where to do things? This may also be from a higher guide as well. Listen to your inner voice. You will start to trust it to guide you and it will start to guide you more frequently.

One good tool for psychic development is visualization. If you are going to a new place or are about to meet new people try to visualize the meeting or place. See in your minds eye the people what they look like and what will happen. Most developed psychics can visually see a situation either in the past, present or future and relay the vision clearly.

There are also tests one can use to develop psychically. There are ESP, Telepathy and Mind Control tests you can take to gauge your psychic development. A person’s psychic development grows over time with use like anything else. Taking a test for one time does not complete the training of psychic development, which is an ongoing process.

For example one such test you can give your self for psychic development involves cards. All you need is a dark colored poster board. You are to cut 25 equal sized cards from the board. To the cards on one side, you attach the letters A, B, C, D and E. One letter goes on each card. So you end up with 5 cards of each letter.

Shuffle and place the cards face down on your left side. When ready concentrate and pick up the top card. Make sure you can’t see it. You can place it on your head or in front of you without seeing the Letter. Write down on a pad on the right side of you what the letter is. You do this for the whole set of cards. You can do this exercise with Letters, colors or symbols. When you finish the test, circle all the cards you got right. You should repeat the test before scoring your self between 5 to 10 runs at a sitting Scoring is as follows based on 5 runs which equals 125 cards: 25 right / chance, 36 right/ decent score, odds are 22 cards to 1 42 right/ excellent, odds are 260 cards to 1

Remember this is an ESP test; you may have other types of psychic abilities that this test doesn’t show. What this test does do is help with your psychic development by making you focus on an object to visualize it. As with all other skills that require training you have to be persistent and patient with all your psychic development.

Spiritual Exercise

Spiritual Exercise is defined by the practice. There are physical spiritual exercises such as Yoga and Martial Arts. There are also mental stimulated exercises that are spiritual in nature. Some practices combine both the physical and mental as a spiritual exercise.

In my research of what spiritual exercise is, I see that it is any activity done on a steady or regular basis that connects you to a spiritual energy within and a larger force outside of your self. Any thing one does with a spiritual intent as their normal habits can be considered a type of spiritual exercise.

Some spiritual exercises involve chanting or sing mantras for a specific amount of times per day. Mantras are sounds usually from sacred texts that are used to evoke certain spiritual energy and focus. It is a form of chanting. Chanting and prayer are also spiritual exercises that many people use on a daily basis. The idea of chanting and prayer flows through many, millions of religions through out the world.

Another type of spiritual exercise is meditation. It can be done in different ways and in different body positions. The main purpose of meditation a form of spiritual exercises is to loose the idea of self and concentrate on absolutely nothing. It is harder to do than it sounds. People take classes to learn this type of spiritual exercise.

Yoga is also another ancient type of spiritual exercises that was founded in India centuries ago. Yoga means “unity” and “harmony”. It unifies its practitioners with universal consciousness and gives us harmony within ourselves and in relation to the world. As spiritual exercises Yoga harmonizes one’s life, awakens latent capabilities and unites one with cosmic consciousness.

There are different paths of Yoga. Hatha Yoga uses spiritual exercises like breathing, body poses and relaxation techniques. Ashtang/Rajayoga is a more physical spiritual exercise system of Yoga. It focuses on strong flowing movements like pushups. These spiritual exercises include mediation, visualizations, affirmations, attentiveness and self-awareness.

It is not recommended for people with back problems. Bhakti yoga is devotional spiritual exercises that yoga practitioners do. Everyone is said to benefit from these types of spiritual exercises. They are about devotion and love.

Another form of practice connected to spiritual exercises is Martial Arts. Many martial art practices especially those in Asia are connected to the forces of nature. A lot of the spiritual exercises in Chinese Martial arts come from the religious practice of Taoism. The spiritual exercises practiced in martial arts is to stimulate ones Qi or life force that moves through out our body and keep our shen or spiritual essence in harmony. Just as harmony prevails in nature, when we are in harmony we are balanced in nature as well.

Martial Arts also involve the spiritual exercise of not fearing death but being in harmony with it because the Martial arts is of preservation of the physical body. This is particularly true of the Buddhist derived martial art practices.

How Does One Contact Spirits?

So, how does one contact spirits anyway. Depending on our Spirituality and how we view things we might believe in contacting spirits. Usually those of us who believe that we can contact spirits also believe that there is life after death and there are other physical dimensions that we cannot see necessarily but that exist. Regardless of belief system the idea of contacting a spirit can be done with a person who is considered to be receptive to receiving that energy.

There are many methods to evoke contact with a spirit. It can be done on a one to one basis or within a group of people all wanting to evoke a particular spirit. Usually we want to contact spirits of departed souls we have some connection with whether we knew them in this life or not.

For example, a medium may have a spirit guide with whom she or he has contact with for information or reading purposes. Other mediums may contact spirits for other people. It may be a departed loved one that they wish to communicate with but need a person to do it for them. So they go to someone who can contact spirits, so they can make the contact for them.

The medium or person, who can contact spirits, usually focuses on the energy of making contact through meditation or a trancelike state that makes them receptive for the spirit to contact them. Sometime the spirit enters the medium and uses the mediums body to express them selves. Other contact spirits may talk or show them selves to only the medium who relays the information on to others.

It takes training to be a medium. You have to know how to prepare your body for the entrance of contact spirits. A medium is trained usually by another more experienced medium. The teacher guides them through the experience of contacting spirits until they are able to conduct the experience of spirit contact on their own. Some people are born with the gift of communication with spirits.

But even then they may go to another person who has experience to help them with their gift. Some people are frightened of their gift and it takes one who understands the spirit realm to explain this phenomenon to them so they will not be frightened.

Some cultures especially those of shamanistic belief systems; use the contact of spirits in their practices. Other cultures may find the idea of spiritual contact as evil, which frightens their parishioners into believing any contact with any spirit is bad.

Contact spirits usually make contact with us to help us. It is usually a family member or in the family lineage where contact spirits make their presence known. They may come to our aids when we are in danger or sick to save us from crossing over into their realm at that particular time. They may have information to give us that we need to help us in our lives on this plane. Some contact spirits know we miss them so much that they want us to know that they are all right where they are.
