5 Ways to Find a Good Psychic

Psychics are a dime a dozen, but good psychics can be a little harder to find. If you aren't interested in wasting your money on pretenders and scam artists, here are just five tips for finding someone who's truly in contact with deeper forces.

1. Consider Your Spiritual Needs

There are many different types of psychics; they range from clairvoyants who can see the future to mediums who can speak with the deceased. If you're looking for a particular kind of reading, you'll need to reach out to a psychic who specializes in that area. Don't expect a psychometer to understand tarot cards, and don't ask a palm reader to decide if your husband is cheating on you.

2. Choose Your Platform

Some people need face-to-face interaction with their psychic to feel truly connected to them. Others are satisfied contacting a psychic by phone or email. There's no "one size fits all" when it comes to communicating with your psychic; everyone will have different needs, desires and priorities, so figure out what's best for you and go for it.

3. Ask About Their Price

Psychics are providing a service, so like any professional, they expect to be paid. Make sure that you and your psychic have talked about prices and payment plans before you actually sit down for a reading. Don't be ashamed of admitting that you're on a budget; if your psychic knows that you're struggling, they might be able to help you with special discounts or payment plans.

4. Do Your Homework

This is especially important if you plan on conducting a seance. The Hollywood version is quite exaggerated, so if you're expecting grand puffs of smoke and disembodied voices floating through the darkness when you're contacting Great-Aunt Sally, you might be disappointed with a real-life seance. Do some research to help you temper your expectations.

5. Keep Trying

If your first car was a lemon, would you have sworn off cars forever? Don't let yourself get discouraged by one bad reading or one silly psychic. If your first attempt wasn't good enough, keep reaching out to other psychics until you make the connection that changes everything.

A good psychic can help you unravel the future and decipher its mysteries, but the first step is distinguishing them from all of the scam artists. Use these tips to help you wade through the wannabes and find someone truly talented.

Using the Internet For Guided Meditation

A lot of people understand the benefits of meditation but can’t find the time to actually meditate. Guided meditation is a helpful way to insure that time is put aside for this need for mindfulness but finding the time and place to seek out these groups doesn’t usually fit in a modern hectic schedule of work and home. But thanks to the internet, there are plenty of ways to get the kind of guided meditation one desires.

There has been a lot of studies recently that point to links between a healthy brain and meditation. Psychiatric research into mindful meditation has shown that the positive effects of meditating last long after a session ends. Over the past three decades, psychotherapeutic programs have used mindful meditation practices and have seen tremendous results. Mindful-based interventions have been shown to reduce anxiety disorders, depression, and drug addiction among other conditions like chronic pain and sleep disorders.

The Importance of Mindful Meditation

Learning to live in the moment, to recognize that all thoughts are fleeting, is the key concept to mindfulness practice. Besides improving well-being, research now shows that meditation allows a perceptual shift for the individual to recognize events in their world occurring in the present moment and to take a compassionate, eyes wide open look, at the world around them. Meditation is not just about closing your eyes and trying to clear your head. It is about understanding the importance of each breath, that everything is as fleeting as the next intake of air, and that everything can disappear with the next outtake. Being in the present, recognizing that exists right now is the sensations around the individual, and then to take a moment, a pause, to just live in the moment, is the heart of mindfulness. Leave blame and regret in the past. Leave fear and worry in the future. Live in the moment of the space between breaths. That is the importance of mindfulness.

Finding Time to Meditate

Joining a meditation group is a great way to get in time to meditate but finding a steady group that matches an individual’s busy schedule can be complicated. But thanks to the internet, guided meditation groups and lectures have popped up all over the web. From sessions that last just a few minutes to much longer deeper mindfulness lessons, there are tons of sites offering help for the beginning and the full-time practitioner. The key is to find a site, find an instructor that fits your individual needs, and set time aside to find the inner peace and reflection necessary in this hectic, demanding world.
