How do I get the most accurate reading possible?

We know what you want in a psychic reading: accuracy! But how accurate are psychic readings?

How accurate a psychic reading can be relies on how honest you are with the advisor and yourself. Self-clarity leads to clarity in readings.

If you lie to yourself or the psychic, it creates an energetic cloud of deception. It’s not impossible to see through this, but it takes longer which can cost you money. We know you want the best readings possible. Let’s take a look at the accuracy of psychic readings.

How Accurate Is A Psychic Reading?

Psychic readings have a range of accuracy depending on the question you are asking. It’s important to remember that people have free will, and that affects how things unfold.

For this reason, some forms of psychic reading are more accurate than others. Readings that focus on only you, like asking if your chakras are aligned, will be highly accurate. Readings focused on other people have a lower rate of accuracy.

Psychic readings about romance can be a bit less accurate since they involve two people. However, if you ask the right questions, you can get a highly accurate love reading.

What Can Affect The Accuracy Of A Psychic Reading?

We know you want the best psychic reading possible. We’ve got your back! Here are some common things that make psychic readings less accurate.

Your Free Will

Any fortune teller can tell you, no psychic reading is set in stone. It’s not uncommon for a client to get the reading they don’t like, and decide to change their destiny through direct action.

The bad news is sometimes the opposite happens as well. A client will go in for a reading, and because the reading is favorable, they cease doing the action that would have made it happen. Sometimes destinies change because people foolishly believe these are set in stone, they are not.

This is why it’s important to listen to what the psychic tells you to do. If they say you’re on the right path, do not stop moving on that path. Do not allow favorable readings to allow you to get lazy.


This comes up in a lot of love psychic readings. Self-deception can be a tricky beast in psychic readings. Limerence has a similar energetic signature as love, but it is not. Limerence is an obsession that blocks real love from entering your life.

When a client is steeped in limerence, a reading can become clouded by the querent’s desires. This is why we do not recommend anyone do their own love psychic readings. Even professional love psychics don’t do their own readings. Why? Because it’s difficult to see through your own limerence.

How Do I Get Accurate Psychic Readings?

Here are some easy tips and tricks to boost the accuracy of your psychic reading.

Do a Grounding Ritual Before Your Reading

Clarity of mind gives you clarity in readings. If you come to psychic and you’re mentally all over the place, it can be difficult to give an accurate reading.

Before you make your call, take five minutes to do a grounding exercise. Some people like to meditate, some like to light incense, others find a shower helps to clear the mind.

Ask One Question At A Time

A common mistake people make is asking too many questions in different areas. For example, let’s say a client asks about a love reading. The client shouldn’t ask about their career before the psychic can finish answering the first question.

Spirit guides move at their own pace. If you ask questions too quickly, they can get confused and mix up answers.

Be Forthcoming With All Relevant Information

Some people like to “test” psychics by withholding relevant pieces of information. For example, it's not uncommon for people to ask “what does this person think of me?” and neglect to mention that person is an ex.

Not giving all relevant information only obscurs the clarity of the reading. It can also take the psychic longer to give you a good reading, which ultimately costs you money.

Bottom Line

How accurate a psychic reading is involves a number of factors. The main factors that affect the accuracy of a psychic reading are free will and self-deception. When you approach your readings with a clear head and heart, you get good readings.
