No matter what kind of psychic you are looking for be it a Tarot card reading, a consultation with a medium or just some general advice, it can be difficult to choose and even if you can pick one, how to figure out who is genuine and who is false? There are no courses you can take or certification for which you can apply to be a psychic so you will have to do the research yourself.
The first thing you need to do is to decide what kind of consultation you want to have: are you trying to get ahold of a deceased loved one or are you wanting advice? Are seeking spiritual guidance? It is best to figure this out before you spend money on a psychic, make a list of what you want and what you don’t want. You are allowed to decide!
Now that you have decided what you want, start asking for recommendations. If you do not know anyone who has sought Psychic help, visit a metaphysical shop or bookstore. Most people who have consulted a psychic are willing to share their story, positive or not. Chances are good that if you go to a shop or bookstore there will be cards or flyers advertising. This is also good way to see what prices are competitive.
Once you have list of possible advisors, check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any of the names on your list are on theirs. You can also do a quick internet search to see if there are any shady practices linked to the people on your list.
After you have checked the people on your list, start calling to make an appointment. You are allowed to ask brief questions about their background and their methods. Ask if they have a method their prefer such as card readings, rune castings, etc.
You can also ask if they have any clients who could give you a reference. If they refuse to answer any questions, politely thank them and hang up. Be sure to ask about rates. Some advisors charge by the reading and some charge by the hour. This will not only prepare you for your reading, it will also let you see what is a normal range for your area.
Once you have done all of this, you should be able to make an informed decision. It is possible you may want to have a phone consultation or connect with a psychic via email or online chat. Remember it’s all about your choices and what you are comfortable with. If you chose to schedule an appointment for a face-to-face, make sure you show up! If you have to cancel, you should let your advisor know.
