Six Things Genuine Psychics Will Never Say

Stories about people who visit a psychic and receive a suspicious reading are far too common. Sometimes these suspicious tidings are accompanied by dire warnings of unavoidable tragedies—unavoidable, that is, until the client ponies up large sums of additional money to secure the psychic’s “help.” Don’t fall for the scams. There are red flags you can watch for. Here are six things you will never hear from a genuine psychic.
Red Flag #1: “You're Possessed!”
Some unethical psychics stoop as low as scaring people into believing they're demon-possessed. Even worse, they then claim that only they could exorcise those demons. Of course, at significant cost. It may sound crazy to you, but cautionary tales frequently warn people about psychics who say this very thing.  
As if that isn’t bad enough, these psychics will threaten clients that if they tell anybody else, “you’ll make the demons even angrier,” so the psychic won’t be able to exorcise them! If a psychic pulls this routine on you, run away and don’t ever go back.
Red Flag #2: “You’re Cursed!”
Another version of the “You’re possessed!” storyline is that you’re cursed, and the psychic who discovered your curse is the only person who could lift it. This doesn’t mean that you’re not cursed. It’s unlikely, but you very well could be, and if you are, you’d probably know it. In such a case, any competent professional will be able to help you, not just the deceitful scammer who’s trying to squeeze more money out of you at the moment.
The issue is often not if the person is a legitimate psychic or not, but rather if they’re an honorable businessperson or not. Are they charging you a fair amount for their time and services? Or, are they demanding that you shell out an unreasonable amount because they claim that only they could possibly help you? 
Red Flag #3: “Somebody Wants to Kill You!”
Anyone who’s ever worked as a professional psychic knows that there aren’t any guarantees in the mystical arts. Well-trained intuitive readers are able to look at a spread of tarot cards and discern potential peril and hidden hazards there. But such warnings are never very specific.
Psychics may see hints that somebody in your life may be lying to you, or that somebody you thought you could trust is considering betraying you, or that danger is looming on your horizon or in the future of someone close to you. But no genuine psychic would ever tell you (or anyone else, for that matter) that somebody wants you dead. That’s simply too specific of a prediction to make. They should certainly tell you any less-than-encouraging information they may foresee right along with the more optimistic stuff. But be wary of anybody who tells you anything so specific.
Red Flag #4. “You're a Bad Person!”
Some people end up feeling downright distraught by the end of their psychic reading. Though it may have started well, the reader scolded and shamed the client for some lapse in judgment, leaving the client feeling like a bad person for a past mistake. The psychic fixated on the mistake, and just couldn’t let it go.
But psychics aren’t in business to judge you. Their goals should be to offer consultation, help clients understand the circumstances they’re facing, and help them figure out what potential solutions may be heading their way. They aren’t there to berate you, point fingers at you, or shame you. 
There certainly will be times when psychics need to tell clients things that they may not want to hear. But there’s a huge difference between being honest and forthright about a situation, and being brutal about it. Opinions, judgments, and assumptions need to be left out of the reading.
Red Flag #5. “You’re Terminally Ill!”
It's awful that this scenario needs to be addressed at all. But it’s all too common for psychics to reveal to them that they have an incurable disease. If a psychic ever “diagnoses” you with a specific disease, you should definitely take it as a warning, but not regarding your health. 
A genuine psychic certainly will be able to tell you if you or somebody close to you is facing health issues. But he or she will say something like, “I’m concerned that somebody close to you is facing a medical challenge. Has everybody been seeing their doctors for their regular checkups?”
Even if a psychic does surmise that somebody close to you may not have much time left in this world, no psychic should ever tell you that your Nana will be dead by Thursday. A more professional and ethical approach would be to say something along the lines of, “I’m sensing that your grandma is quite elderly and that you’ve been thinking about spending some extra time together. This would be a good time to do that.”
Telling a client that they or someone close to them have some specific disease or terminal illness would be irresponsible. It doesn’t serve the client’s best interests, so no professional psychic should do that.
Red Flag #6. “You Can't Change the Future!”
Are we doomed to succumb to the random whims of fate, or can we affect what destiny has in store for us? Nobody can prove for certain, but everyone can control what will happen to them. This means that if you’re unhappy about the direction your life is taking, your choices can change its course. These changes may need to be made slowly and individually, but you can make them.

So, be skeptical if a psychic says that everything he or she is telling you is set in stone. This is your journey. The choices are yours. The path is yours to direct. Only you get to decide where it will lead you!
