Can You Trust a Psychic to Know Your Destiny?

How much trust should you put in psychic readers?

As an intuitive reader (which is slightly different to a psychic), I have many clients who come to me for a “second opinion”. They have been to psychics, received a message that perhaps they didn’t want to hear, or that didn’t feel right to them, and then come looking for some type of confirmation or clarity.

Even though I offer intuitive readings myself, I firmly believe that you cannot trust everything a psychic tells you, even if they are the most accurate psychic in the world.

Let me tell you why…

In a weird twist of fated events, I found myself at this psychic’s house receiving a reading. She was new to her powers but instantly I could tell that she was very connected. She knew things that there was no way she could have known, so I was pretty confident in her abilities.

As we went through the reading, she started telling me things that I did not want to hear. Things that I don’t think anyone should here, including the fact I was going to die young!

She also told me I was going to drop out of University. At the time I was just about to finish high school and had been working very hard to get into this University that I felt called to go to. But, she proceeded to paint a very bleak and negative picture about it all, which made me feel very depressed.

I struggled for days with what she had told me and was actually really angry at her and myself. My frustration grew and grew till finally I had enough- “Who is this person to tell me what is going to happen in my life! She doesn’t even know me!” And I let it go.

Flash forward nearly a year later, when I had forgotten all about what the psychic had said, I was taking classes at this University I really wanted to go to. I was excited at first, but slowly I started to realize that it was not as expected.

My classes were dull and boring, but I carried on anyway, until I got offered a job of a lifetime. An acting job with the Sydney Opera Company. I was so excited that I dropped out of University.


Bam! What the psychic said came true, but what she failed to mention was the awesome, incredible opportunity that came along that made me leave!

The picture she painted was so bleak and negative about the whole thing, when in reality, it was actually an amazing opportunity that lined up perfectly!

A few other “bad” things that the psychic told me also came true, but in a much more positive and loving way then she had depicted.

It was then that I realized, that as talented as a psychic may be, you can’t always trust the person delivering the messages and you can’t always trust that you are ready to understand the messages either.

Think of a psychic like a radio. If the radio is well made and full of clean, positive energy, the sound quality is going to come through perfectly. But if the radio is old, worn and beaten, the sound quality is going to be poor, muffled and even confusing to understand.

Even being an intuitive reader I understand this too. I may receive a message, but it is how I deliver the message that is even more important. It’s how the message comes out of the radio that determines its quality and accuracy.

So, to answer the question- can you trust a psychic to know your destiny? The answer is really no.

This is not to say that there aren’t some incredible psychics out there that can offer amazing guidance and assistance, but you have to be picky about who you choose to see.

At the end of the day, the only person you can trust with your destiny is yourself, your soul and the mysterious workings of the Universe.

While psychics and intuitives are a fabulous way to get clarity and to look deeper into the energies surrounding you, you have to keep an open mind.

You need to take the messages that you do receive that resonate with you and your own intuition and leave the rest to unfold as it needs to.

And if you do receive something you don’t want to hear, perhaps consider for a moment that it is not as bad as it seems and that with your own inner strength and power, there is nothing that you can’t work through or achieve.

    thanks for sharing…. I hope you will be safe and not die young as she predicted.

    Love this dialogue that you have started. Before I work with clients if they ask me to do readings as part of our sessions, I always preface by telling them that I am only a filter through which the messages come. I think this is something that all psychics/mediums/etc. should do, but so many people in this field are clouded by a need to hold the future in their hands to feed their egos that they would never think to do that, and that’s wrong. People have the right to know that the person delivering these messages to them is that “radio”, and that it is up to them to a) create the scenario that the psychic claims will happen, and b) understand that messages can be easily warped and misinterpreted by those delivering them. Thank you for sharing this information and yourself with the world. PS- You “dying young” could always be a death of an old Self as you move closer to your Highest Self 😉 Love always xx RLG <3

    • yes that is so true! thanks for sharing your wisdom rachel! 🙂 And yes, i have always interpreted her message is that i would die “young at heart” but that is a good way to think of it too! life has already been full of death and rebirths for me so wouldn’t be surprised if that theme continued!

    Hey Tanaaz!

    This post resonates with me on another level and timely so. Yesterday, I revisited the reading we discussed a year ago which didn’t sit well with me. I just decided to jump on your website today and alas, your words reminded me of my our chat. It was the guidance I needed as I could feel myself entertaining those ‘what ifs’ again.

    Divine timing indeed.

    Love and light to you!

    • so glad it helped Chanh! blessings to you xoxo
