Here, Suzie Price debunks very popular myths about Psychics and Mediums. Suzie, also known as the Ghost Whisperer, is one of Australia’s top psychic mediums.

Suzie’s honesty and accuracy has garnered her a loyal fan base and helped make her one of Australia’s most loved mediums.

Working in the industry for over 20 years, Suzie has been exposed to the many skepticisms surrounding the psychic industry and has decided to dispel the rumours and debunk the top 5 myths regarding psychics and mediums.

Myth 1: Psychic mediums are scammers and use cold reading to con men and women

There are always people who treat others unfairly or take advantage of them and there are these types of people within the psychic industry. However, the con artists are generally easy to spot. They make claims of being able to help you and make you money or save you from bad luck. These scammers are never around for very long as they end up with a bad reputation. In my experience, the scammers are few and far between. I have never met anyone who uses cold reading techniques and I have met hundreds of psychics over the years. Most psychics are genuinely gifted to varying degrees at what they do and will generally have the best interest of their client in mind. The psychic industry is greatly unpoliced and if a person is clever and bold enough they can trick those that are vulnerable. However when choosing a psychic or medium, always do your research and ask others for feedback. If other people have recommended a psychic you give yourself a better chance of having an enjoyable experience.

Myth 2: If psychic mediums were real, it would be easy to find missing persons

There are many real life cases where psychics or mediums have helped in finding missing persons or helped solve murder cases but generally speaking it doesn’t happen often. Having been involved in a few missing persons cases on a professional level, I can say it is not as simple as it sounds. The cases I have worked on were unsolved suspected abductions and murders of young girls from decades before. I was able to connect with the girls’ spirits and I was given impressions of different circumstances surrounding their deaths including locations, however there are often dozens or even hundreds of different locations that may fit the impressions I had. Much of the information you may receive in crime cases is very general and not specific enough to be of any real help in finding their bodies. Even when you do have some specific information it can be hard to find a connection that will lead to a breakthrough. I do feel that with the right circumstances and a good connection, psychics can be of valuable assistance in finding missing persons but unfortunately there are many factors that affect the information and how we relate to it, so it is often not precise enough.

Can Psychics Influence Your Destiny?

Myth 3: Psychic mediums can read minds

Psychics and mediums do not and cannot read minds. They can tune into your individual energy field that contains information about your life but they can’t read your mind or know what you’re thinking. We receive information through our psychic senses about the person we are connecting to and information comes through in bits and pieces. We may see images, hear brief noises, voices or words, get a glimpse of a smell or taste and/or feel an energy shift in different parts of our body, which indicates a message. All this information has to be put together to make sense and it can be hard to relay what different things mean. The information can be about places, events or people related to their past, present or future.

Myth 4: Psychic/mediums research everyone in the audience before a show

It is very rare to come across someone who would be able to do this. I am sure with expertise and time it would be possible to gather some background information on some of the people attending the show. However that person then needs to study the information and memorise it. To think about how long this would take to do and how difficult it would be to remember everything, it isn’t worth the time and effort required to do it. It is much easier for a psychic to tune into their abilities than it would be to do all that research and studying before each show.

Myth 5: Psychics/mediums can predict the future

Psychics and mediums do not actually predict the future. What we can do is tune into energies connected to future events in people’s lives using our psychic senses to give insights into possible outcomes. Using tools such as tarot cards, palmistry and astrology combined with information that we gather through our psychic senses, we can often give insights into possible future events with some degree of accuracy. However, we can get it completely wrong and can misinterpret the information we receive. It is for this reason that we require acknowledgement from the client as to whether the information we are sharing resonates with them. It should be a perfect fit and even if it doesn’t make sense to us, it should make sense to them. The imprint of the information may be what the person was projecting into their energy field at the time but then they change that vibration to a different frequency and attract a different outcome. The future is written in sand and can be altered.
