Always searching for guidance and answers, I’ve had many psychic readings through the years. Loss led me to my first psychic reading. But love compelled me to try my first California Psychics phone reading. I wanted to learn lessons about relationship patterns.
My first call on the line was with Psychic Teva ext. 5141, who picked up on my relationship’s energy. I picked her because she had awesome testimonials, and I’ve always had a penchant for Scottish accents. She sorted out why I was experiencing so much miscommunication with my partner. His patterns were interfering with our longevity. “He’s venting his dysfunction through his behavior. You’re not the issue,” she said. I called thinking my issues were at the heart of our problems, but his finger pointing was his way of deflecting from and dealing with his issues.
Sometimes emotional clarity can make all the difference. Though I felt spiritually awake after my reading, I still had issues to deal with — like how to manage my partner’s constant finger pointing in a productive way. Though this is gray area to some, it’s probably a common issue in most relationship dynamics. Clarity can be the greatest gift a reading can offer. From that point you figure out what you need to fix, what’s real and what’s imagined, and that’s how you shape your destiny.
So how do you know if you’re getting the real deal when you call a psychic? How can you tell if there’s a true connection? How do you even research the one who’s right for you?
Here are three short steps to serve as a guide:
1. Testimonials and bios
Think about the last time you were on ebay or Amazon.com. Did you leave a testimonial about your transaction? It sort of works the same way for psychics. They serve as a great barometer for how trustworthy a psychic service, or individual psychic really is. A good psychic will have many fans, and they’re not afraid to express themselves. Look for psychics with many positive testimonials, specific details, and customers who say things like, “I’ll call again,” and “it came true, I am dating so and so in the timeline so and so predicted.”
A biography is helpful to determine a psychic’s reading style. If you prefer that they only use their gifts and no tools, or read your pet rather than talk about love, those details will be covered in their bio.
2. Less is more
Most psychics will only ask for a few pieces of information during the course of a reading. If they ask for more, perhaps they’re confirming or validating facts. But if your reader stalls for too long, you may not have a good connection or they might require more information. The best readings I’ve had were on this site. I am not just saying that! Most psychics I’ve read with have asked for little to no information. They require a name and birth date to get going!
The more chatty you are during a reading — about your past, history, relationships, exes, etc., — the more bloated the reading becomes. It can get out of hand because you’re steering the psychic in too many directions and not allowing them to pick up on you. Adept psychics will purposely make sure you don’t share more than the minimum necessary. Some might even tell you to hush up — in this case, that’s a good thing! They want to work for it!
3. Imparting their process
Psychics will share their process with you up front if you’re unsure about how they work. For example, Psychic Jean ext. 5132 said she consults her Spirit Guide, Psychic Ariel ext. 9775 will consult a Tarot deck. Some psychics might tell you a little bit about themselves, and what they “do” before you begin.
In my experience, all psychics are typically open to explaining why and how they do what they do. Most will even tell you that we all possess some kind of psychic ability, to some extent. I’ve never read with a psychic who has force fed a point of view — religious or otherwise, and none have been dogmatic about why their approach is the only way.
Still unsure? Try a short reading — like a mini-consultation. Schedule a quickie (at least 20 minutes) and make up your mind for yourself. Don’t just take my word for it. Sometimes 20 minutes is all you need to find your favorite psychic. It’s always fun to try different psychics, too. Happy reading!
