Dear Shaman Lizzie: I have been reading your Ask the Psychic Medium articles and must admit I’ve been very skeptical of psychics and spiritual healers. How can someone protect themselves from a scam artist? Lenora, Branson, MO.

Dear Lenora: Thank you for the question about psychics, mediums, and spiritual practitioners! I will try to answer it to the best of my ability and hopefully give you some helpful advice.

When it comes to seeking guidance from psychics, mediums and spiritual healers, it’s important to exercise caution. Unfortunately, there are individuals out there who take advantage of vulnerable people, scamming them out of their money and trust. However, it’s not all doom and gloom – there are reputable practitioners who genuinely want to help. In this article, we’ll explore how you can find trustworthy psychics, mediums, and spiritual healers and avoid falling victim to scams.

Follow Your Intuition

Your intuition is a powerful tool when it comes to choosing a psychic, medium or spiritual healer. If something feels off or too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your gut feelings and listen to your inner voice. It’s essential to establish a connection and feel comfortable with the practitioner you choose.

Research and Check Reviews

Before consulting a psychic or spiritual healer, do your research. Look for practitioners with a long track record and positive reviews from previous clients. Reputable psychics, mediums and healers often have websites or social media pages where you can find testimonials and feedback from satisfied customers. Take the time to read these reviews and get a sense of the practitioner’s credibility.

Avoid Newer and Less Experienced Practitioners

While everyone has to start somewhere, it’s generally safer to choose practitioners with more experience. Seasoned psychics, mediums and spiritual healers have honed their skills over time and have a better understanding of their craft. Avoid falling for claims of instant expertise from newer practitioners who may not have the necessary knowledge or integrity.

Beware of Too Good to Be True Scams

If a psychic, medium or spiritual healer promises you guaranteed results or claims to possess supernatural powers, it’s a red flag. Legitimate practitioners understand that their abilities are not foolproof and that they cannot control external factors. Be wary of anyone who makes grandiose claims and promises or insists on additional payments for special rituals or spells.

Avoid Practitioners Who Ask for Gifts

A reputable psychic, medium or spiritual healer will never ask for extravagant gifts or large sums of money. While it’s customary to offer a fair payment for their services and even add gratuity, be cautious if a practitioner tries to exploit your generosity. If you feel pressured or uncomfortable, it’s best to seek guidance elsewhere.

Report Scams and Seek Legal Action if Necessary

If you believe you have been scammed or defrauded by a psychic, medium or spiritual healer, don’t hesitate to report the incident to the police. Fraud is a serious crime, and by reporting it, you can help protect others from falling victim to the same scam. Remember, your actions can make a difference.

Seek Recommendations from Trusted Sources

Word-of-mouth recommendations from friends, family, or trusted individuals can be invaluable when searching for a reputable psychic or spiritual healer. If someone you trust has had a positive experience with a practitioner, it’s worth considering their recommendation. Personal referrals can provide a sense of security and increase the likelihood of finding a trustworthy professional.

Trustworthy Alternatives: Telephone and Online Readings

While there are scams to watch out for in the world of telephone and online readings, there are also legitimate practitioners who offer their services remotely. Look for professionals who have established a reputable online presence, including clear contact information and secure payment options. Read reviews and testimonials from clients who have had positive experiences with these practitioners.


When seeking guidance from psychics, mediums or spiritual healers, it’s essential to exercise caution and do your due diligence. By following your intuition, researching and checking reviews, avoiding scams, and seeking recommendations, you can increase your chances of finding a trustworthy practitioner. Remember, your well-being and peace of mind are paramount, so take the time to find a professional who genuinely wants to help.
