Hints on Consulting a Medium or Psychic:
Some Practical Do's and Don'ts and
What to Look Out For and How Not to Get Cheated.
popular belief, mediums and psychics are not machines which can
be randomly turned on and off. Many subtle factors are involved
in the channeling of information. Sometimes, everything falls very
nicely into place and a strong communicative link is established.
At other times, this may not be the case. The failure to establish
or maintain a strong link with Spirit may have nothing to do with
either the medium or the sitter; so, we must never judge any sensitive's
work based upon one sitting.
is: how can you determine whether you should visit a particular
medium or psychic. Here are some helpful hints:
- First and
foremost: know whether you wish to sit with a medium or a psychic.
Each works on a different level and offers a different type of
information. A medium offers communication from Spirit; a psychic
attunes to and interprets the energies from the sitter.
- If a sensitive
promises you the world, be careful.
- If a sensitive
charges an unreasonably high fee, then you can be pretty well
assured that his or her primary motive for doing the work is financial.
Of course, the service offered by a good medium or psychic is
invaluable, and you should expect to pay a reasonable rate for
his or her time; but, outlandish fees should be avoided. Use good
- Be careful
when a medium says that he or she will promise communication from
particular spirit loved ones. No one can make that guarantee.
If conditions are right, and if that particular medium is suitable
for your loved-ones to link with, then, very likely, you will
get what you hope to receive. This is determined at the time of
the sitting, not prior. So, be cautious of guarantees made in
- Be cautious
of sensitives who charge per question or per
communicator. In our opinion, this is too much like grocery
shopping and not the way in which sittings should be conducted.
- During a
sitting, be discerning when it comes to predictions. It is true
that what we shall do tomorrow is being planned, spiritually,
today, and the energy of those plans are within the aura; but,
nothing of the future is etched in stone. Always use your good
judgment concerning the future.
why it is that the Spirit loved-ones wish to communicate through
a medium. Is it to tell us about career, romance, and finances?
No. That is not their job. Spirit comes, first, to let us know
that they are OK and that there is life after death; then, to
guide and inspire us. Spirit does not come to live our lives or
to make decisions which we should be making. The same applies
to psychics. Do not turn over the responsibility of your life
into the hands of another.
- Be very
careful of sensitives who ask personal questions, either before
or during your sitting. Very often, they fish for information
and return that information, either as a message from Spirit or
as part of the psychic reading. No medium or sensitive needs to
know anything about you, except your name (even this is not
really required). If he or she asks for
additional information, do not offer it. You do not have to provide
your date of birth or anything of that nature beforehand. The
only question which a sensitive should ask, during a sitting,
is whether or not you understand or can accept a piece of information
given to you; then, answer only YES or NO; do not give any additional
- The time
you spend with a psychic or medium is YOUR time. If ever you are
told that you cannot tape record a sitting or reading, stay clear!
please avoid those dreadful psychic hot lines, which,
thankfully, in the United States, are quickly becoming a thing
of the past. Trust us on this
one: for $240 an hour, you are NOT making any kind of a friend.
This may all
seem like a lot of warnings. But, today, we are inundated with countless
mediums and psychics who make outlandish claims, charge even more
outlandish fees for their services, and promise people the world.
many very good, ethical, fair, and honest mediums and psychics,
and the service which they can render to the seeking soul is, truly,
priceless; but you have to know what to look out for. Use this information
as a guideline in your quest and you will find what you need.
Best of luck
in your quest for truth!
