The word “psychic” conjures images of a woman in flowing purple garb, hovering her hands over a crystal ball and muttering in a fake Jamaican accent. In the genuine psychic community, such a person – minus the accent – has a title. They’re called a “Tool Reader.”
According to Reality Undefined, a metaphysical studies website, there are more than ten talents that distinguish some psychic readers from others. Some of these include: clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, precognitions and telepathy.
If you want to enlist the services of a psychic, you should consider what kind of reading you’re looking for. Someone searching for answers about their future career or love life would want to see a “Far-See” psychic, while those searching for answers about the past might look for a session in past-life regression.
Many who work in this profession specialize in more than one area. Water Lilies, a spiritual-health store in Missoula, Mont., houses these multi-talented professionals on a weekly basis and holds multiple psychic conventions throughout the year. You can find a list of their psychics and schedules on their website.
Many psychics claim to have their extrasensory abilities from birth. But of course, not everyone is convinced.
A group of professional bubble poppers known as The Skeptics Society put together a step-by-step guide on how to give a psychic reading. It mostly boils down to a comfy armchair and a lot of question-asking.
Despite the debbie-downer brigade though, psychics still manage to hold jobs; I mean, who hasn’t caught an episode of Long Island Medium? (If you haven’t, try not to drop the doves in your hand when you watch this convincing clip from an interview with Ellen Degeneres).
Whether you’re a doubter of a die-hard believer, the curiosity might just be enough to get you to make the call.
