Judging the unseen world- what are your guidelines?

When you choose a psychic to read for you, or select a book on para normal subjects or on witchcraft or spells, what is the standard that helps you make a wise choice? I would like to present some ideas on choosing a psychic, but I would love others to add to the list. No one is always able to make accurate predictions each and every time. a good psychic will usually be right, and will say they have a high rate of accuracy- but be suspicious of those who insist they are never wrong. A common scam is to warn you that you are under a bad spell or a curse and that only some product they have or spell they can cast will release you. I like to call this the $600 candle reading- when I hear of someone doing it. they'll say you need me to light a candle to cast off this curse- the candle is About $20-- and then next visit they'll say the curse is worse than I though, we need the fifty dollar candle, and so on until the $600 candle. I have heard of astonishing curse removals scams. People have passages that are difficult in their lives but i have yet to see such a thing as a curse on anyone I've ever read for. A good psychic will insist that clients wait a reasonable time before returning. Getting cards or palms read can be addictive, and no decent psychic will be a part of that. My requirement is 6 weeks. If a person in in a crisis, and needs to touch pbase with me during it- that's different, and there is no charge for it. A bad psychic will keep upping the ante and shortening the time between readings. these are a couple of issues I'd want people to be aware of in choosing a psychic. And by the way if you are getting a reading and one of these ploys is used- call the police. Its illegal as can be! What about other psychic services- like holding a seance or ridding a house of poltergeists? I'd like to hear from others on this.

I tend to choose reputable and proven experts, such as John Edward and Sylvia Browne. For example, Sylvia Browne explains that there is no such thing as a "curse," nor is one limited to a given building such as a church or synagogue or religion to pray. At the same time, we all have guardian angels and spirit guides who have our backs, so to speak.

I'm right with you on that. Butits hard to get to speak to Eadwards and Browne, and want average people to help develope some good guidelines for choosing so I agree the guidance they give is excellant (Browne and Edwards)- Spirit guides are a wonderful way to be directed.

Thanks. Sylvia Browne has written a number of excellent books that are easy to understand and very educational. From my study of this subject, I have found that she confirms what other reputable experts have to say about the Other Side. Another well known expert who has also written books and gives readings is James Van Praagh. I have read this expert's books as well and found his tone comforting and appealing. John Edward's books are good, too.

Van Praagh's books are brilliant. I have actually felt gratitude to him for writing them.

I agree with you that one has to be cautious. I myself work as a medium, I can communicate with people on the other side as I say. I don't want people to give me any information. I usually just only ask their name, and when I start my reading I just want a yes or no. When I am done they can ask questions or give messages. Everytime is different for me too, I usually don't know what to expect myself. It can happen that someone comes through who u did not expect. Just be carefull when going to a psychic that they don't con you into saying what u want to hear.
