The following is our professional opinion here are Truly Medium.
Go With Who You Feel Drawn To
Despite cost, accuracy, or word of mouth my philosophy with potential clients has always been “Go with who you feel drawn to”. If that means we lose a potential client to someone else then so be it. If you are drawn to someone specific it’s for good reason and your gut guiding you towards that person is often your best judgement. Don’t let your pocketbook, flashy website or availability set you off track. Trust your instincts. Also recognize that who you are drawn to today could change tomorrow. For example when I was pregnant with our 2nd child I could not read anyone who was pregnant. It happened every time I tried to read for someone who was pregnant, yet pre and post pregnancy I’m fine with reading pregnant people. For me it was a point and time limitation based on my personal situation.
With any product or service we buy today we want the best quality for the lowest price. How we each view affordability and value for a service differs with our individual needs. Two factors tend to define a medium or psychics pricing for the most part. #1 experience as well as #2 supply and demand. I work with a lot of mediums socially, through workshops, through education as well as charity and volunteer functions. The greener mediums tend to charge < $100 per session for a private reading. More experienced mediums tend to charge around $100 or more and this is based on approximately an hour session. Some will use pricing to balance supply with demand which can help reduce wait times. So how much does a reading cost with big names like Sylvia Browne, Theresa Caputo or John Edwards? It often depends who you are speaking of and where they are in their career. Sylvia Browne and John Edwards have been giving readings for a long time. Their wait lists are in the “years” and their cost is typically $800 or more for approximately 30 minutes. Theresa Caputo is on the fast track with her TV show Long Island Medium and I’d hazard to say her pricing is increasing quickly. Last I heard she charged $400+ for 30 minutes with a 2.5 year wait. Keep in mind pricing for these folks is also fueled by great publicity agents as well as a number of books some of them have written. When it comes to you, as the client, ensure you are getting all you intended to during a reading. Scribe notes during your session. Ask if you can record the reading to reflect on it and ensure the medium or psychic takes the time to explain things to you that may not make sense. They may bring forward symbols, phrases or history. If they don’t ask “do you know what this is or means?” be sure to ask them. Ensure you get everything out of your reading.
Accuracy. I love this one as much as I detest it. You as a potential client may often get frustrated with trying to define a medium or psychic’s accuracy rate prior to booking a reading. It’s just as hard for a medium or psychic to compile that information because it’s so subjective. A client vs a medium or psychic may have 2 very different opinions on how a session went. Additionally I’ll sometimes have a client which will leave thinking “I don’t know who that was Truly connected to for me and thus I’m not sure if I should take the information that came forward”. At the time of the reading one would say that was an inaccurate reading, but let me tell you the number of times I’ve had people call or email me days, weeks even months after a reading to say “I’ve spoken with so and so and they knew exactly who you were talking about, so now it all makes sense”.
Accuracy can also be influenced by a medium or psychic having a bad day or conversely by the client not being open during the reading. Therefore, it’s very difficult to quantify how accurate someone is, so what should you look for when shopping around? Here are a few things I recommend:
1. Personal Referrals. Preferably from people you know. We all have testimonials and that is helpful, but how do you know if what you read is legitimate or not? Personal referrals are independent experiences that can help immensely.
2. Experience. Dive into a medium or psychics background. Understand how they became a medium or psychic. Did they come from a family which welcomed and fostered this type of behaviour? How many years have they been performing their work and in what capacities? Do they do this on a full time basis or is this a side gig for them?
3. Growth. It is a gift to have these skill sets, but did you know these skills are also developed? Doing more readings may make you faster or more comfortable as a medium or psychic, but they won’t necessarily make you grow and produce more qualitative readings. To grow, like any other service, one needs to educate. This is done a number of ways through workshops, classes and meditation. Investigate to understand what your medium or psychic does for self-development and growth. As an example I’m on a board of directors which runs programs to educate and mentor mediums. Within this organization I’m both a student and a teacher. This helps me tremendously. It’s important to know that these options are out there for mediums and psychics.
A final point I’d like to share is ensure you chose someone with integrity and seek qualities that portray that’s what the medium or psychic possess. This can be difficult to identify initially without referrals, but look for other signs on how they express themselves through their website or advertising. One of my personal objectives has been to re-gain ground on people’s perception on the profession of a medium or psychic. To assist with that I use my full legal name (yes Truly is my legal first name), pictures identifying who I am, sessions performed out of my personal home rather than an undisclosed location and I dress in business attire which is often no different than what you’d find on Bay street. I’m only as good as my business and my business is only as good as my clients perceive and communicate it to be.
We hope you find this information helpful and hope it provides some quality guidance to assist in selecting the right medium or psychic which provides closure in your life, connects with loved ones as you’ve seeked or assists in predicting pathways of your future.
Love and light.
