Psychic Myths DebunkedJanuary 9, 2015
There is much mystery and debate surrounding the world of psychics and clairvoyants. While some have gone public with their gifts, many have been pressured to keep their gifts a secret from a skeptical public. This has left the cultural image of psychics and clairvoyants in the hands of Hollywood, which doesn’t always have the best track record of accurate portrayals.
If your idea of who a psychic is comes from the movie, you’re probably thinking Whoopie Goldberg in Ghost or some creepy old crone from a late-night horror movie. While it may be true in some cases, most psychic advisors are the same people that you find at the grocery store or run into at the park. You would never be able to guess about their extrasensory gifts.
By debunking many popular myths about psychics, you can overcome any reservations that you may have about connecting with an advisor.
Myth #1: Psychics are Mind Readers
A psychic reading is more nuanced than a psychic simply reading your mind. It’s important to remember that all psychics have unique gifts that work in different ways. But rest assured, a psychic won’t “read” you unless you ask. Even if they pick up information about you, they won’t share it unless invited. Remember, psychics have personal lives to lead of their own and while they want to help you, they still have errands to run! Also, a psychic reading is made possible by connecting with the psychic. If you are not open to that connection then it makes it more difficult for you to be read.
Myth #2: Psychics Predict the Future
This one is a little tricky, and like anything else in life, the devil is in the details. Psychics don’t predict the future, but many are able to see your life’s path and know which fork in the road that you are most likely to take. They don’t make your future, only you can do that through your own free will. However, a psychic reading may contain important insights about your past and who you are now that will help get you to where you need to be in life. It’s never to late to change directions.
Myth #3: Psychics Communicate with Spirits
There is a diverse range of psychic abilities. Some psychics are clairvoyant, which means they know things through different senses in a way that can’t really be explained. Other psychics are empathetic and can pick up information about your emotional state based on your energy vibrations. Another type of psychic ability is mediumship. Mediums are psychics who are able to connect with spirits who have passed. It’s important to know these distinctions so that you can work with a psychic advisor who is best suited to answer your questions.
As you become more familiar with psychics, you will learn that there is a surprising range of gifted people who want to help you find the answers that you seek. While the movies may accurately portray the powerful abilities of a psychic advisor, you’ll find that psychics in real life tend to be less spooky with greater talents than psychics on the big screen.
