Believe it or not, most psychics report that they can’t give themselves a reading. “We are much too emotionally invested in the outcome,” our California Psychics tell us – and psychics, just like anyone else seeking life-path information, want a broad and honest perspective on what’s going on in their lives. So what do they do? They get a psychic reading – from someone else!
There is that old question that psychics often get… If you’re such a good psychic, why can’t you just read yourself? “A great reading calls for a level of detachment,” they explain.
Even psychics who have friends or relatives who are also readers very often prefer to consult an outside intuitive, someone who doesn’t have a vested interest in the outcome of the reading.
Psychics get readings to confirm the information they get for themselves, and to expand on what they see or feel. They also want to pick up on information they might have missed on their own, and some of them may have visions that keep coming to them that need to be explained. “After about the third time, I know I need to consult a psychic. I listen to my guides, then pick a reader who has the most experience in what my visions are about,” one intuitive explains.
“I like to get a consensus of several good psychic opinions before I make a major decision. It’s fun to see what others pick up on, in addition to what I’m seeing for myself. I tend to go for clairvoyant, astrological and vibrational readings,” says Tammy ext. 9380.
“It’s fun to see how different people do spreads, and how they choose to handle the cards. I like to get readings for my birthday or at the start of a new year. It’s a way to treat myself to something I like,” reports Joey ext. 9406, who also ventures to Salem, MA for the occasional consultation. “I’m like a kid in a candy store when I’m there. They always tell me I am psychic, too.”
When it comes to choosing a psychic, the experts pick their readers by referrals, specialty, personality, or intuition – much like the rest of us. Many say they usually go with their gut instinct after reading a bio. If they’re feeling daring, they will occasionally let customer service pick a new reader for them.
“I choose a psychic largely based on referral. If I hear the word ‘amazing,’ I’m pretty sure that reader is someone I want to try,” says Tammy. “I like psychics who see details and are highly clairvoyant. Because I read cards, I rarely go to other card readers.”
“I like a psychic with a sense of humor. I respect honesty, a cheerful voice and a reader who sees the bright sides of things. I ask which Tarot deck they are working with, and I take notes on where the cards lie in a spread. This way I can compare what they say to my own interpretation of the cards,” one of our popular psychics reveals.
“The first psychic I ever read with predicted in July that a lamp of mine – one that she described in detail – would short out in December. On Christmas Eve, that lamp started buzzing and smoking, and it shorted out before my eyes,” relates Tammy. “She is still the psychic I measure every other one against. I get an education from her just by getting readings.”
“Personally, I adore the experience of getting readings,” one of our psychics admits. “For an intuitive, it’s a great opportunity to get out of my own head and release any of those personal perceptions I’ve locked myself into.”
See, psychics really are just like the rest of us!
