I’m going to start this article with a confession and also a revelation (so you know where I’m coming from).
I have absolutely no doubt that there are many amazing psychic mediums working today who can give you honest and insightful access to loved ones who have crossed over to the other side.
Not only have I had many, many personal experiences that have proven this to me beyond the shadow of a doubt, I have many close friends who are professional mediums, who can do exactly that.
That’s the “revelation” so to speak.
The confession is THIS:
Some mediums cheat. In fact, I’ve had a LOT more bad readings in my life than good ones. Bad ones are rarely due to cheating, rather … they are because the medium is NOT that good!
That said, many mediums employ various cheating techniques to help them appear much more gifted than they are. Ignoring this reality would be unfair and unfortunately not an accurate representation of the psychic profession as a whole. (although the percentage of dishonest media is very, very small)
The short list below is a compendium of my OWN “cheating” checklist and the things I am looking for whether I am visiting a medium in person or talking to him on the phone.
Many important questions. (“Have you traveled recently?”)
Lots of VAGAS generalities (I see the letter “D”)
Too many open responses. (A good medium wants you to say LESS, rather than more. It is preferable to answer YES and NO)
Obvious attention to your body language, appearance, or gestures (you feel like you’re being “looked up and down” and judged)
And insistence on INCORRECT information. (Many mediums will try to insist that something is true, even when you make it clear that it is not!)
Obviously, a medium that wants to charge you more money or incorporate other services that you did not register for … is NOT being honest. (No reputable psychic or medium will try to sell you on a candle lighting ceremony, spell, or curse removal, and if this comes up … RUN for the hills in a hurry!)
The bottom line is, DO NOT let the bad mediums who manipulate the public scare you from looking for legitimate mediums who CAN change your life in amazing ways. There are bad “seeds” in all professions, and while I’d love to believe that all psychics are honest, there are unfortunately some bad apples in ours too!
