*Psychic Readings* You can't really whip out a psychic ability test when you go for a psychic reading. However, one way to tell if a psychic clairvoyant is the real deal, is to see how much information he or she tries to glean from you, the person being read. Someone who is actually tuned in to the psychic source will require no information from you, and usually will ask you not to say anything or give them any information.


Good psychic readers should be able to come up with some accurate names for you - names of the your deceased or live relatives. Real psychics should be able to say they are communicating with George B. or something to that affect - not just ask you if you know someone named Bob. If they are fishing for information, they have no true psychic ability.

Psychic readings should be highly accurate. If the online psychic or telephone psychics are making predictions or telling you things that seem to be way off base, chances are they are guessing. Real psychics can either see the departed (this is more specifically called a medium) or gets information from voices they hear or thoughts they receive. They may be off a bit, as they are trying to interpret the impressions they are being given, but keen psychics should be relatively close during the majority of the psychic reading.

Top psychics have an inner serenity - they are usually calm as psychic ability generally requires peace and quiet in order to receive messages. These people understand the universe, the meaning of life, and the fact that this life is only a small part of the spiritual journey. A real psychic will come across as very calm, while a fake will likely be nervous as they are desperately trying to fish for information and come up with something that is accurate when they have no powers to do so.


  • Get referrals from friends for psychic readings - a keen psychic will have a following of people because of his or her abilities.


  • Don't overpay for psychic advice. You may have to pay $300 or more to see a nationally recognized psychic, but otherwise psychic readings should only cost about $60 an hour or so.
