How to Choose a Trustworthy Psychic: A Friendly Guide



Choosing a psychic can be a unique and personal journey. Whether you're curious about spiritual matters, looking to deepen your spiritual life, or are seeking guidance, finding the right psychic is crucial. It's more than just ensuring you have a fun and uplifting experience; it's about your emotional safety and the sensitive information you'll share. Likewise, psychic readings should challenge you to grow and become more empowered in a nurturing and supportive way. Here's a friendly guide to help you make an informed choice.


Understanding Different Types of Psychic Readings

Before diving in, know what you're looking for. Psychics offer various readings - tarot, astrology, akashic records, aura, and more. Each modality provides different kinds of information on nuances of energetic elements. In other words, each style creates slightly different results! This is because each method aims to read a different energetic pathway or dimension in an individual. So, each modality can have as much information as each unique Psychic! Likewise, each Psychic has unique ways of providing insights - rather than a personal style. So, do your homework! Understand what each kind of reading involves and decide what resonates with you.

Hot Tip: Most Psychics will let you know what their reading will entail. Read the details to know what to expect! If they do not offer details that may be a red flag and something to watch out for. Experienced psychics will know what their client's major takeways are from their readings and be able to share that with you. ~ Zan

Find a Vetted and Experienced Psychic Reader

Your psychic should be a source of support, not stress. It is important to remember that a good psychic may also call you out and challenge you to step up into responsibility. A psychic that tiptoes around you may not have the communication skills to effectively explain the information they are getting from the reading, which affects the quality and effectiveness of your reading. Start with research. Look up reviews and experiences of others. Positive feedback is a good sign, but remember, it's also about finding someone who aligns with your needs and energy. Trust your intuition. If you feel good about a psychic, it's a positive indicator. Your comfort and connection with them are crucial for an open and honest reading.


A Balanced Approach Ensures a Powerful Psychic Reading

A trustworthy psychic maintains a balanced approach. They won't just focus on love and light or, in contrast, shame and fear. You want someone who can deliver hard truths with compassion – think of them as a friend who's not afraid to be honest but always has your best interest at heart. An experienced psychic will not overly focus on either element without providing a balanced and energetic information-based structure to their reading.


Be Cautious with Personal Information

Remember, you'll be sharing intimate details. Both personal data like birth date and place, but also potentially vulnerable information about your life. Choose someone you feel you can trust. Emotional safety is vital to having an empowering and successful reading. You're entering a vulnerable space, so feeling safe and respected is paramount.


Red Flags to Watch For

Beware of psychics who use fear or shame to upsell more services. This is a major red flag. Trustworthy psychics don't use fear tactics. If you feel pressured, especially to spend more money, walking away is okay.


Standard Practices in a Psychic Reading

Personal Information

Expect to share basic information like your full name, birth date, and birthplace. This helps psychics tune into your energy and provide a more personalized reading. This information is crucial to accuracy, especially in the Astrology and Akashic Records modalities.

Clarifying Questions

Psychics often ask questions to clarify situations. It's part of ensuring the reading is relevant and accurate for you. Just because they are asking questions, it doesn't mean they are fishing! Likely, they want to make sure they can tie the energetic information they are receiving to something more tangible so that it makes sense for you.

Feedback and Safety

An excellent psychic wants your feedback. They'll check in to ensure you're comfortable and understand the shared information. If they ask, 'Does that make sense?' and 'Do you have any questions about that?' they try to ensure the information is landing and effective.

Conversational Style

Readings usually feel like a mix of conversation and lecture. It's a two-way street; you're not just a passive listener. So do not be afraid to interrupt and ask questions! If you do most of the talking, you may want to relax and soak in the information more. You paid for the information; you might as well listen to what they have to share.

Facing Tough Truths

Psychics might reveal challenging truths. It is in the nature of psychic readings to include elements that evade our consciousness but want to be heard. Allow some cognitive dissonance, accept that you may hear things you have been avoiding or do not want to hear. It's not about fear-mongering but about honesty. It's like a friend who's not afraid to call you out but guides you in a respectful and safe way.

Taking It with a Grain of Salt

Finally, remember to take everything with a grain of salt. Psychic readings offer perspectives, not absolute truths. Stay true to yourself and your intuition. Channel your energy and remember your divine will. You're in charge of your path.


Finding the right psychic is a personal journey. Take your time, trust your gut, and remember, a psychic is there to guide, not dictate, your life. With the right approach, a psychic reading can be a valuable and enlightening experience.
