How Accurate Are Psychic Readings?

I know what you are probably thinking… Psychic readings are inaccurate and unreal, right?

I’m an astrologer and psychologist who’s always been passionate about spirituality, past lives, chakra healing, and everything along those lines.

But even I was skeptical when someone mentioned they were going to a psychic reading.

Today, I wrote this article to help you understand how accurate psychic readings truly are and maybe, just maybe, debunk some of the prejudices a large part of our society has against psychics.

So, Let’s dive in.

Are Psychic Readings Accurate and Reliable?

When I say ‘psychic’, most people think of a person with a flamboyant rope in front of a crystal ball mumbling gibberish, just to scam people and make a few bucks.

Indeed, some people have done this in the past, but this doesn’t mean many psychic readers are truly gifted and able to give accurate readings.

Psychic readings are done by people who have different skills and talents that allow them to “see” things about people and their life paths that they may not be aware of. These abilities cannot be explained by science or natural laws.

Some psychics indeed use their natural gifts, such as clairvoyance (the ability to perceive the future), clairaudience (the ability to hear things that are not physically present), or mediumship (the ability to communicate with the spiritual realm) to help the querent with their problems.

Other psychics channel their intuitive gifts and answer their clients’ questions using tools such as tarot cards, astrology, runes, or crystals. This allows them to offer some guidance in their life journey.

Our society, especially Western culture, keeps wondering about accuracy and has many prejudices against anything that can’t be empirically proven by science.

I get it. Science allows us to understand the world that our bodily senses perceive objectively without specific spiritual or cultural biases getting in the way.

However, after years of immersing myself in the world of spiritual evolution, healing and emotional transformation, I came to realize that some things just can’t be measured in a lab.

Psychic gifts are one of them.

Psychic readings are different ways gifted people can tap into their intuitive gifts and offer guidance and advice. However, this doesn’t mean they are always accurate or that some psychic readers are plain scammers.

Thus to be straight, there’s no scientific consensus on the accuracy of psychic readings. In fact, measuring the accuracy of psychic readings is not only impossible… but also unnecessary. I don’t believe you need to filter everything through the lens of science to make it valid, especially when exploring the mysteries of the human spirit.

However, there are some factors you should be aware of to know if they are leading you in the right direction.

So before investing your money in a psychic reading, make sure you take the following aspects into consideration:

Factors That Influence the Accuracy of Psychic Readings

The Skill and Experience of the Psychic:

The years of experience your psychic has can definitely impact the accuracy of your readings. That’s why it’s important to do your research before booking a reading.

Most sites allow you to check the profile and reviews of the psychic you choose. This will help you explore how many years they’ve been honing their skills, what is their personal style, and if their clients are satisfied with their readings.

Take your time to do your research. This will help you feel better prepared and more confident in your reading, knowing that you are putting your money in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing.

Your own State of Mind:

A psychic has the ability to penetrate into deeper, more subtle aspects of yourself, which can only be grasped if you are in a state of openness and trust.

If you go to your reading with a skeptical attitude, you may create a wall between you and your psychic, which can greatly affect the accuracy of your reading.

Healthy skepticism can help you critically assess the information you receive. But if you book a reading just to test your psychic, the results may not be as satisfying. The same thing happens if you are too tired, distracted, or not fully present during the reading. Your energy levels and emotional state can distort the connection with your psychic, which can cloud the information they are receiving.

How to Approach Psychic Readings to Ensure Their Accuracy?

After doing your research, choosing a skilled and trustworthy psychic with positive reviews from their clients, and ensuring you are in the right emotional and energetic state, follow these tips to ensure a satisfying psychic reading/prediction:

  1. Be Cautious: Fake psychics will try to scam you by scaring you with misleading information and asking you for money to “save” you. If your psychic asks you for more money to remove a “curse,” for example, don’t believe them. Again, if you do your research, you’ll avoid these types of scenarios.
  2. Find Your Inner Center: Before your reading starts, take enough time to ground yourself in your inner core. You can do this by meditating, going for a walk in nature, or taking a few deep breaths. This will help you be more present in the reading, resulting in a more accurate and fulfilling experience.
  3. Don’t Expect Specific Answers: Psychics can’t provide specific answers to your concerns. Don’t forget they work with the more subtle realms of human experience, where logic and reason don’t fit. Avoid questions such as “Will my boyfriend break up with me?” and opt for questions such as “Why is my relationship stuck?”. Prepare your questions in advance to make the most of your reading.

Final Words

In my experience, the best psychic readings I’ve had were the ones that helped me connect more deeply with my inner compass, not the ones that predicted my future with pinpoint accuracy.

So if you decide to give psychic readings a chance, make sure you follow the advice you’ve found in this article to ensure you get the best possible reading. Keep an open mind with a healthy dose of skepticism and, most importantly, trust your intuition.
