There are a lot of myths surrounding psychics. Movies and T.V. shows don’t help the stereotypes either. Sometimes, you do run into a phony. Other times, it’s a misguided soul. Still other times, your psychic is exceptional at reading people and has a really great unconscious understanding of psychology. But, don’t paint them all with the same brush. Here are a few myths you’ve probably heard before.
You’re Born Psychic And That’s Just The Way It Is
In some ways, this is true, but in some respects it’s not. Many psychics believe that all children are born with psychic abilities. Some train and develop them throughout their lives, while others forget their innate abilities and they grow out of them.
Think of it like an artist. Some people are naturally better artists than others. They have the vocal chords for singing perhaps. Maybe, they have a special understanding of spacial relationships and can draw like nobody’s business. Maybe, they have an ear for hearing music or a hand for sculpting. They have a choice: develop that skill or let it go. It’s the same with psychics.
Psychics Can Predict The Future
Not all psychics claim to be able to see into the future. In fact, respectable ones won’t claim this ability at all. Instead, they will tell you that they have good intuitive perception of what’s happening today – that’s all. If they could predict the future, they would have either lost everything on one night in Vegas or they would be the richest person in the world (or, at least extremely rich).
Psychics Can Cure People
Reputable companies, like TheCircle Psychics, treat psychic readings as a form of entertainment. They don’t make sweeping claims like “we can heal you of your ills.” If a person has cancer, no psychic can heal them. They need medical attention.
Miracle faith healing is for religious believers, not for those interested in psychics and psychic abilities. Instead, psychics focus more on helping you to heal yourself. They help you to understand yourself better, release negative energy and emotional pain, and that in turn will help you to heal yourself.
Psychics Are New-Age
The stereotypical psychic is “new age.” That’s something that has never dies, despite the fact that few psychics wear strange clothing or participate in that kind of lifestyle.
Psychics Can Read Your Mind
Psychics don’t read minds. This is probably one of the biggest myths out there. It seems intuitive that a psychic would do this. A psychic may feel a certain way about something, but that doesn’t mean they believe in a future that is set in stone.
They tend to focus on helping you become more introspective so that you can solve your own problems. In a way, they’re sort of like a psychotherapist that delves into your mind and tries to get at the root of a problem. That doesn’t mean they can’t, or aren’t good at, picking up on subtleties that give away your true thoughts and ideas. This is where they excel. It’s how they appear to be able to “read your mind” without actually getting in there with a scope.
