Many people don’t really understand what psychics are or what kind of powers they have. There is a lot of misinformation when it comes to the psychic practice and this misinformation is repeated until it becomes myth.

Unfortunately a lot of these myths will cause people to have an incorrect perception of psychics and might even result in them choosing not to visit a psychic due to this misunderstanding. Perhaps they don’t know how a psychic works or they are scared to visit a psychic because of an incorrect belief. This is a shame, because a psychic might just be able to offer them valuable insight or spiritual guidance that could help them take the next step in their lives.

So what are the biggest misconceptions that people have about psychics? Here are a few of the common myths and the truth behind them…

Psychics are Mind Readers

Many people believe that a psychic can read their thoughts directly and can guess your birthday or how many fingers you are holding up. However, this is not necessarily true. Usually, a psychic will not be able to read specific thoughts but they will be able to tune into your personal energy in a very insightful way. They will pick up the subtle emotional signals that you are sending them, so that they can understand your emotions and the reason for your current turmoil.

Also, psychics are able to access your spirit guide – which is where they can find out important details of your future and current life – including information about marriage, love, family and children. For example, the psychics at TheCircle.com will offer you guidance on all of these crucial aspects of your life – all you need to do is ask.

Psychics Can Predict the Future

There is a lot of debate as to whether a psychic can predict the future or not. However, most psychics believe in the idea of free will, so they know that the future is not set in stone. What most psychics are able to do is to tap into your personal energy and use that information to determine the direction that your future is headed. A psychic can let you know what might happen if you continue on the path that you are on, as well as presenting you with different choices and directions to consider.

Psychics Know Everything That Will Happen to Them

“Psychic Fair closed due to unforeseen circumstances” is a common joke and the myth that many people believe is that if people are really psychic, they should be able to anticipate any bad event that is going to happen to them. However, the answer is that most psychics don’t possess their abilities 24 hours a day. They only have their powers when they are consciously using them, such as when a customer seeks a reading. They can “tune” into their psychic ability just like you would tune into a radio – turning it off when the reading is complete.

Psychics can Curse You (Or Remove a Curse)

There are many people out there who believe that a psychic has the ability to place a curse on someone, or remove such curse. However, curses are merely superstition. The way that a cure works is because it is a wish for someone else to experience harm. If the person receiving the “curse” believes that it works and lets the energy into their life, the curse will cause them to subconsciously cause harm to themselves. In other words, you cannot be cursed unless you yourself believe that you can be cursed.

There are some psychics who will claim that you are cursed and tell you that you need to pay them a lot of money to remove the curse from you or you will die. Of course, this is a common scam and these types of immoral psychics should be ignored or reported to the authorities.

These are just a few of the most common myths that many people believe about psychics. Now that you understand a little bit more about psychics and how they work, you will be much more informed and you might choose to consult a psychic for help or guidance. Why not give a psychic a call today?
