If you’re considering speaking to a psychic or intuitive reader on Keen for answers to serious questions about your relationships, career, family, or any matter about your life, there are some misconceptions we should clear up. We’ve been in the business for almost two decades, and as a leader in the live advice industry, we’ve got some worthwhile tips and general wise words to make sure you have the most positive, beneficial, and empowering reading possible. 

1. What’s the definition of a great psychic reading? 

A great psychic reading really comes when you’re in a position to truly receive the information and are open to the possibilities. Here are some other characteristics of a great psychic reading.  

  • A great psychic reading gives you intuitive, accurate insights combined with practical advice and guidance
  • A great psychic reading cultivates faith and inspiration within you
  • A great psychic reading inspires self-examination and self-awareness
  • A great psychic reading takes into account your own abilities and special gifts
  • Most importantly, a great psychic reading respects your free will.

2. What exactly is psychic ability?  

There is no exact explanation or definition for the psychic phenomena. However, we’re going to break it down for you in simple terms. 

The first part of understanding psychic abilities is understanding intuition. Known commonly as an instinct or gut reaction, intuition is often more accurate than many realize. Everyone has intuition, but not everyone’s intuition is as developed or trained as others’. 

Put simply, psychic ability is the refined use of intuition. It is more active and precise. Psychic insight requires you to focus your intuition without the distraction of random thoughts. This requires practice, trust and, very often, training.

3. Are psychics a scam?

great, real psychic will never attempt to scam you. Unforunately, like with any industry or service, there are bad actors that try to take advantage of others. You can identify a real psychic from a scam artist: 

When you speak to a psychic for the first time, be aware that a real, professional psychic will not ask you for anything other than your name, your date of birth, and your question. They may ask for names of places or people you refer to and their dates of birth, but that will be it. If you want to tell them more, that is okay, but if you find a psychic trying to pump more and more information out of you than the basics we mention above, be aware that they are not a legitimate psychic and their intentions are not honest. 

Keen is 100% focused on your safety and security, which is why our marketplace is an excellent solution to getting you real insights from real psychics. 

4. So, should I test a psychic if I speak to one? 

Simply put, no, you shouldn’t. Another misconception that plays a big role in the psychic reading experiencing is going into a reading with negative intentions. If you’re not open to the possibilities of expanding your horizons and spiritual capabilities, then it may not be a good idea to get a psychic reading. Testing a psychic is a bad idea for several reasons, including you’ve already put a negative intent on the experience prior to going into it. If you’re trying to ‘stump’ the psychic, you’re only going to block your own reading. A psychic reading is an intimate and divine interaction between two people. It requires a healthy atmosphere of love, trust, mutual respect, and sharing.

5. Keep an eye out for: 

  • Any psychic claiming they see a problem or curse around you that can be fixed or cured for a price. There are no such things are curses, by the way.
  • Any psychic who needs you to pay them in order to clear or unblock your aura or chakras
  • Any psychic claiming you need to buy an expensive item like a crystal, stone, or candle
  • Any psychic who claims to be 100% accurate

Never forget that a good, professional, and honest reader will be absolutely honest with you and tell you what they can and can’t do. They will do their best using their unique psychic capabilities to give you an honest reading, sharing with you any truths that they see for you. A professional psychic will always honor and respect you as well as your privacy, and recognize the bond and sacredness in the exchange between you two. Remember that Keen’s marketplace hosts thousands of verified, trustworthy readers with rating points and written feedback. So do your own research and find a psychic that’s right for you and your needs!
