Is Psychic Source Trustworthy?
When searching for an online psychic, one of the main concerns is trustworthiness. There’s no denying the existence of bad actors and frauds, who cast a dubious shadow over the field and its more legit practitioners. So how do you separate the 2? How can you tell a legit psychic from somebody just out for your money?
The short answer is you can’t. Psychic readings are by nature mysterious, personal, and unquantifiable. However—there are some fairly reliable criteria that, when applied to a psychic or psychic website, can either weed out questionable practices or spotlight the signs of a transparent, honest business. Here’s how Psychic Source looks under scrutiny:
Yes. Psychic Source puts psychics through rigorous screening before hosting them on the site. Every prospective psychic must fill out a detailed application that lists their experience as a psychic, and if they pass that initial test, they’re then required to give 1 or 2 readings (10-15 minutes each) to a Psychic Source representative. This heavy screening should reassure you that you’ll find authentic psychics with real experience on the site.
Yup. Psychic Source gives you access to user reviews—both good and bad. This is helpful for decision making, but even more so, it demonstrates the site’s transparency and trust in both its psychics and its users. You can be confident that anyone you select has passed the test of the platform and the customer base.
Yes. Every psychic on the site has their own page with a professionally written bio written in the 3rd person. While you’ll find psychic bios on many sites, they tend to be erratic, unformatted, or show no consistency from one psychic to the next. The fact that Psychic Sources’ bios are presented consistently and in a uniform tone speaks to the site’s professionalism and high standards.
Yes. The more a website invests itself in its subject matter and larger community, the less likely it is to be a scam. Psychic Source features a nice media library with non-promotional articles, videos, and meditations, as well as a free seasonal newsletter that’s thoughtfully designed and full of community updates, wellness tips, and enough non-promotional content to give you the impression that they’re at least as interested in their craft as they are in your money.
100% money-back guarantee?
Yes. Psychic Source’s willingness to fully refund customers who aren’t satisfied with a reading demonstrates a preemptive trust in its psychics that speaks to the site’s legitimacy.
Psychic Source’s transparency, accountability, knowledge, and sense of community is a good indicator that it stands behind what it does and cares about its customers.
A final note about trustworthiness
Given the nature of psychic readings, it’s impossible to determine with absolute certainty the legitimacy of a practitioner. Furthermore, there are factors that can influence the success or failure of a reading that may have nothing to do with the legitimacy of the psychic. For that reason, make sure you choose a psychic that specializes in your field of inquiry, and communicate your questions and goals clearly. Nothing’s black and white when it comes to psychic readings—hey, that’s part of the fun, right?—but judging online psychics by certain criteria can drastically increase your chances of finding one who’s in it for the right reasons.
How Does Psychic Source Work?
Getting a psychic reading from Psychic Source is very simple. Here’s how it works:
Step One: Sign up for an account. Psychic Source has an introductory offer of $1 a minute up to 30 minutes, plus 3 free minutes. Good deal!
Step 2: Enter your name, email address, password, gender, date of birth, and payment details.
Step 3: Choose what type of psychic reading you are interested in and/or which psychic you want to connect with. This is the most important step, and you can approach it from either end. Meaning, you can choose what type of reading you are more comfortable with, and find a psychic that works with that reading method. Or you can choose a psychic that looks like you will connect with them and see which types of readings they offer. Either way, it’s all about your comfort level.
Psychic Source offers 3 types of readings:
- Phone readings: To get a phone reading, select the reader you wish to speak with, click the Call Me button and the reader will call you. You can also dial the psychic’s extension directly (extensions are found on the reader’s profile page).
- Online chat readings: This is the easiest and most comfortable option for many people because it doesn’t involve any direct contact. Instead, you just send messages to one another like you’d send a friend a WhatsApp message. Just go to the psychic profile page and click the Advisor’s Chat Reading button to get started.
- Video call readings: Video calls are the most personal, so a lot of customers enjoy this kind of intimacy in a psychic reading. It’s also nice to be able to see the reader’s face, expressions, and body language. To initiate a video call, go to the psychic’s profile page, and click on the Video Reading button.
- Psychic Source also has a huge network of talented psychics, so you can find just about any reading style and specialty in this mix. Some tools include crystals, numerology, reiki, tarot, and cartomancy, while reading styles can range from compassionate and expressive to direct and wise.
What do I think of Psychic Source?
I haven’t hidden my admiration for Psychic Source throughout this review, because it is excellent. With other sites, their service is good and their readers are easy to find, well rated and fairly priced, so you know what you are getting. But they still fall short because of a number of different reasons. First, the professional look of the website, and how easy it is to navigate. Everything is itemised, and not just the readings and readers either. You can get a detailed account of Psychic history, horoscopes, how to contact the website, the different options at your fingertips for doing so; not only is it the most detailed and varied, it is also the most helpful website I have seen.
Even one of the perceived negatives I have thought of when it comes to Psychic Source can be spun as a positive. They have so much information on offer, that some people could see that as overwhelming. It is the best way to learn as I have already mentioned, though thy could do more to make it more accessible from a multimedia standpoint.
There is no obvious route through to social media, with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram valuable tools they can use to expand themselves more. Also, they could branch into creative an app for IPhone and Android users.
To conclude, I think this is a fantastic website. It is the most democratic for every level of Psychic enthusiast and should be seen as the go-to place for all of them.
