Have You Ever Wondered How Good Psychics Actually Read? Part 1
The first thing to consider is that reading is an artform not a science. By this I mean, there are no hard and fast, black and white, concrete realities. A good Psychic can pick up a flow of energy around the client. Due to the flowing nature of energy and the effects of free will, nothing is 100 percent guaranteed. There are no guarantees in life, apart from death and taxes so the old saying goes.
Be cautious of psychics who put a percentage rate of accuracy to their work. This is simply not possible. I have studied statistics at university during my psychology course and I can tell you categorically that measuring a non-scientific event (such as a reading) with a scientific quantifiable measurement device such as a percentage rate, is totally inaccurate in itself. It's like measuring a Picasso or a Monet and saying it is 99 percent accurate. Even a photo is not 100 percent accurate and if you look at your drivers licence or your passport photo, you will know this. Mine invariably turn out making me look like the creature from the black lagoon on a bad hair day.
The work of an artist is not designed to reflect only the physical attributes of the subject, but also to convey meaning and feeling. Psychic readings are much the same. There are counselling skills involved when dealing with people and it is inappropriate to reflect just the physical characterisitcs of the situation. The meaning to and feelings of, the client are of paramount importance as well as the accuracy of the reading.
It is NOT appropriate to pander to a client's ego, by telling them what they wish to hear. This destroys the integrity of the message given by upstairs. Stroking a client's ego this way does nothing to help them change their situation. It is a type of prostitution whereby the psychic is shortchanging both herself and her client by not telling the truth. These are rather strong words, but we must tell the truth as sensitively and compassionately as we can. The message given by Spirit must be delivered to the client in a manner she/he can understand and digest. Telling someone a white lie to make them feel better will only demoralise them further, when the event never materializes. Beware of psychics who do this. You need the truth, not a fantasy land story. You can make up your own stories without paying for them. You don't need to pay a psychic to tell you fibs event if they are well intentioned.
Another ploy you need to be aware of is the asking of questions by so called psychics. If a psychic is asking you to provide copious amounts of information or fishing for info, then you need to be cautious in exactly how much you give away. A genuine psychic won't expect you to tell your life story. Minimal information such as first name and date of birth should be sufficient for a good psychic to pick up the current energies around you and what the likely outocmes will be. Spirit will come in and reveal what you need to know if you are dealing with a genuine psychic. There are good psychics on eBay, the bible says about those filled with the holy spirit that 'you will know them by their fruits'. This means you will know people acting with Christ consciousness by their history and the energy around them.
