Not all psychics have your best interest at heart. Their interest lies in your wallet. Psychic scams have been around since psychics have existed. And while there are truly gifted ones out there, there are also a handful of bad eggs out there.
If you know what to look for, you’ll know how to avoid psychic scams. And you’ll know how to choose a good psychic. Once in a while I get a client who tells me how they were bilked money by the last psychic they saw. Here are a few examples:
- A client of mine told me that a psychic said she could get his girlfriend back to him if he paid her $1500…which he did. But his girlfriend didn’t come back.
- Someone my friend knows went to see a psychic who told her that she would commit suicide in the future. The psychic told the person that if she paid her $400 she could prevent that from happening. Luckily, my friend talked some sense into her and she went back the next day and asked for her money back.
- Can’t remember who told me this one – A psychic told the person they had a curse of bad luck on them and they needed to bring them a boiled egg, a candle, and of course…a sum of money to remove the curse.
You may be laughing or astonished that people would fall for these things. But it happens and mainly for two reasons. First, these people were in a vulnerable state when they went. They were going to see a psychic for guidance because they were at a low point in their lives.
Second, the psychic works on fear and the fact that some people think that anything that comes out of a psychic’s mouth will absolutely happen. Fear is a tool of manipulation.
The truth is:
- Curses don’t exist unless you believe in them – it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy and an easy way for you to blame others when things aren’t going well
- No one can “make” anyone do anything. Including falling in love or coming back to a relationship.
- You have control over your destiny. If someone predicts something you don’t like, you can change your actions and thoughts to alter your path. Even if the psychic was correct in seeing a suicide (which I highly doubt), the client could decide to work in therapy or strengthen her faith to avoid that path.
The best way to avoid a psychic scam is to ask others for a referral to someone they know. If you don’t have that and you are going through the internet be careful. If you see the words – guarantee to fix all problems, removes curses, etc – then run.
