Everyone has been mystified by the Spiritual world for eons. In the ancient Babylonians to your average person looking to bet a couple of dollars on a sporting event, individuals have looked to the Esoteric for guidance and answers. Years ago, kings had "Seers" and villages had Shaman. Today we've 900 numbers and you aren't the internet and a telephone can claim to be a mystic. Unfortunately, many of today's "seers" are not whatever they claim to be. So how would you tell for certain if they are dealing with a true Spiritual Advisor or a fraud? Spiritual Advisor
Nobody wants to have bamboozled. Ever. Nobody wants to be used or spend their wages on lies and deception. So, if however, you be considering metaphysical guidance, there are a few things you should know when choosing whom you want to trust. I strongly suggest that you trust your intuition above all else when shopping around for the Psychic. If it feels wrong or shady...chances are really good that you should carry on looking.
For starters, no true Spiritual Guru is going to associate themselves with the 800 or 900 number. It is ethically unsound and, to be hones, it is beneath us. Any idiot can get a job with those kinds of "psychic" hotlines. No experience necessary. So, that ought to be your first clue. Spiritual Healer
Back in college, I babysat for an older woman and something day I arrived early to view her kids. She had the phone under her chin while she was peeling potatoes. There wasn't a Tarot deck around the corner! She was prattling off card names and positions while making a pot roast! I'm not sure about you, but I sure as heck wouldn't desire to trust my life choices or be advised by someone like this. So, case and point...800/900 number Psychics should be avoided at all costs.
Next things to look for are experience and longevity. Sure, people can still lie about this stuff, but credentials and experience are very important. If they have some training, it may be worth checking out. A fantastic conversation with them will show you for sure if you want to believe in them. When a person is lying or making stuff up, they are going to shift their eyes up and the left. Look for any inconsistencies from the conversation, too.
One more thing to evaluate is the way the opportunity Psychic charges for their services and collects payment. It is controversial in some circles for a Spiritual person to charge for services, however, it is often my personal experience if we do not attach a fee for your services, we get grossly used. I once had a person whom I used to be helping out begin to call me at three and four in the morning because they were drunk and wanted me to magically sober them up or say to them if the girl they simply met was going to get knocked up should they did the deed. Nope. No more.
A true Mystic will either enable you to for free (if they are a glutton for punishment) and have a set menu of services with fees attached with them. Many will assist you by appointment only. It will help establish boundaries and yes it promotes mutual respect. Regarding payment for their services, I'd personally be leery of anyone getting cash only upfront. An upfront card payment is good if you are dealing with your Psychic via telephone or another electronic media, but make sure it has an electronic trail like PayPal or Google with something to choose instead.
I personally require upfront payment via PayPal for electronically based services so that if an issue ever arises, I'm able to prove that this specific website showed my exact fee for this specific service, then back it up with either my phone bill or email correspondence. If a potential Psychic demands cash only, them of you has a leg to face on if things lose their freshness.
The most important thing you can do when shopping around for a Spiritualist, is trust your intuition. Be on the style out for warning signs and inconsistencies, avoid 800/900 numbers and merely trust your gut. There really are good people out there who genuinely need to work with you and see you happy. I wish outright the best for you, my good friend and I hope this information is helpful. Blessed be!
