If you are seeking the advice and guidance of a psychic, you have to be aware of common scams perpetrated by those who simply want to take your money. You should only seek out the talents of psychics who are dedicated to healing suffering and improving the world. Scams are committed by charlatans who, while they may or may not have legitimate talents, have no interest in improving anybody's life.
Common scams include:
The Bait And Switch - This is the most common scam, and it involves a psychic offering inexpensive initial readings. Once you get the reading, the psychic will tell you that you have "dark energy" or a "curse" around you and will offer to heal the curse for a hefty price. Don't do it! For one, there is no such thing as "dark energy," just energy blockages that lightworkers will help you remove. Two, be very careful if psychic's fees are not straightforward by-the-hour work.
The Love Potion - When a psychic offers to sell you a potion or cast a spell to make someone fall in love or force someone to give you a job, be very wary. This could be advertised as a "love potion," a "hire me spell" or a "get lost hex" or something of that nature. While some psychics can help you move through personal blockages to moving on, finding love or making career connections, they cannot overcome another person's free will. All the psychic magick in the world can only ever help you with your own energy. It cannot bend another person's energy to your will.
The Cursed Ring - A scammer will tell you that a piece of jewelry or object you own is cursed and will offer to remove the curse. After a few days, the con artist will then tell you that the curse is too powerful to remove but that he will take it off your hands free of charge and get rid of it so the curse can't affect you and you'll begin to have better luck in love, job search, etc. What the scammer is really doing is taking your valuables and selling them to a pawn shop for cash.
Winning Lottery Numbers - It is not possible for psychics to predict lottery results. Period. Psychic abilities have more to do with reading emotional and energetic currents into the future. Lottery results are on a different plane. If your psychic is asking you to pay money for "winning lottery numbers," find someone else.
These cons are just some of the most common psychic scams out there. As always, use your best judgment and intuition. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. Good psychics will always seek to put your mind at ease, while con artists thrive off of your emotional confusion and stress. If you are unsure about something, don't be afraid to ask questions before you pay for your consultation.
