How to Pick a Good Spiritual Advisor
Everyone has been mystified by the Spiritual world for eons. From the ancient Babylonians to your average Joe looking to bet a couple of bucks on a sporting event, folks have looked to the Esoteric for guidance and answers. Once upon a time, kings had "Seers" and villages had Shaman. Today we've got 900 numbers and a person with the internet and a telephone can claim to be a mystic. Unfortunately, most of today's "seers" are not what you claim to be. So how would you tell for certain if they are dealing with a true Spiritual Advisor or possibly a fraud?
Nobody wants to have bamboozled. Ever. Nobody wants to be rooked or spend their hard earned money on lies and deception. So, if however you be considering metaphysical guidance, there are several things you should know when choosing which team you want to trust. I strongly recommend that you trust your intuition most of all when shopping around for a Psychic. If it feels wrong or shady...likelihood is really good that you should carry on looking.
For starters, no true Spiritual Guru will associate themselves having an 800 or 900 number. It is ethically unsound and, to be hones, it is beneath us. Any idiot could possibly get a job with those sorts of "psychic" hotlines. No experience necessary. So, that should be your first clue.
Back in college, I babysat on an older woman the other day I arrived early to look at her kids. She had the phone under her chin while she was peeling potatoes. There wasn't a Tarot deck on the horizon! She was prattling off card names and positions while building a pot roast! I am not sure about you, but I sure as heck wouldn't desire to trust my life choices or be advised by someone like that. So, case and point...800/900 number Psychics must be avoided at all costs.
Next things to consider are experience and longevity. Sure, people can invariably lie about these things, but credentials and experience are very important. If they have some training, it will be worth checking out. A great conversation with them will tell you for sure if you want to believe in them. When a person is lying or making stuff up, they'll shift their eyes up and also to the left. Seek out any inconsistencies within the conversation, too.
One other thing to evaluate is the way the possibility Psychic charges because of their services and collects payment. It's controversial in some circles to get a Spiritual person to charge because of their 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 tell them if the girl they only met was going to get knocked up when they did the deed. Nope. No more.
A true Mystic will either help you for free (if they are a glutton for punishment) and have a set menu of services with fees attached to them. Many will assist you by appointment only. This can help establish boundaries and it promotes mutual respect. With regards to payment for their services, I would be leery of anyone asking for cash only upfront. An upfront card payment is a useful one if you are dealing with your Psychic via telephone or other electronic media, but ensure it has an electronic trail like PayPal or Google with something to select from.
I personally require upfront payment via PayPal for electronically based services in order that if an issue ever arises, I could prove that this specific website showed my exact fee just for this specific service, then support it with either my phone bill or email correspondence. If your potential Psychic demands cash only, them of you has a leg to square on if things go south.
The most important thing you can do when shopping around for a Spiritualist, is rely on intuition. Be on the style out for warning flags and inconsistencies, avoid 800/900 numbers and merely trust your gut. There are actually good people out there who genuinely need to work with you and view you happy. I wish just the best for you, my friend and I hope that this information is helpful. Blessed be!
