Many people consult psychics. It is a fact that it is slowly becoming more popular; many people over the years have based some of the biggest decisions in their lives on guidance received from the spirit world, interpreted by a genuine medium.

And there is lies the crux – genuine. When you have a reading, how do you really know that the medium giving carnival psychic readings is real, genuine, worth your time and money?

Watch out for the props!
Mediums are look and act just like ordinary people, because they are ordinary people with an extraordinary gift. They do not need props, costumes and other paraphernalia when delivering carnival psychic readings. And keep an ear out for strange accents too; mediums rarely talk any different to you or me!

Yes or No?!
If, during carnival psychic readings, you get only yes or no answers from your medium it might be an idea to leave and request a refund. Mediums are given a whole heap of information, sometimes all at once and to sort through it, they need to talk to you, gain your responses as well as interpret what the message being given to them actually means. There is too much going on to simply answer yes or no!

Stating the obvious
We all carry physical signs of our live with us every day; from the scars on hands and faces, to wedding rings as well as other physical signs. We also, whether we know it or not, have emotional aspects pinned all over us; our body language can tell people so much about what we do, what we like and don’t like. Some people pick up on these subtle signs, spill forth a fairly obvious assumption and from then we agree or disagree.

Occasionally, some mediums during carnival psychic readings will simply plump for the obvious and then, without you knowing, get you to do all the work. They may not always start at ‘a’ in the alphabet to guess your departed Mother’s name but within 3 or 4 attempts you will have told them. Be aware of HOW they are asking you for information.

Celebrity mediums!
There are many people who have brought mediumship to the forefront of popular TV and magazines, as well as through social media and the like. Legitimate mediums will not need to perform stunts like bending spoons or brag about what they have or have not done, who they have read for. Many genuine mediums keep these kind of details private and to themselves.

Makes no sense at all…
Some carnival psychic readings offer the subject - that is, YOU – no real guidance at all. In fact, if you walk out thinking ‘I don’t understand any of that reading’ then you have been the subject of a person, masquerading as a fake. Many people consult psychics who help them make the most important decisions in their lives.

Some carnival psychic readings can provide a huge amount of information to people, but choose with care and don’t part with your money or give away information if you are unsure.
