Fake psychics are not all bad. Some are just people who mean well but can’t take themselves out of the equation. So they murmur sweet drivel that is more like what they want to hear.
Or say that you need sleep and crystal angel talismans because your dippy boyfriend/yeast infection/global warming is an ascension symptom. It’s hard to be psychic on demand but intentionally fake psychics are frightening. Along with bad gurus, they’re responsible for significant anxiety and misinformation among their (hopefully) ex-clients.
Everything Is An Ascension Symptom To Them
My personal Grudge Flashpoint is pass-agg, controlling New Age guys in muslin pants who sigh a lot in faux empathy. They talk a good game about their stupendous tantric-kundalini rooting skills but upon rejection, they resort swiftly to New Age versions of “you must be frigid.” Or say that your clitoral chakra is blocked or that you need to clear bad karma via their penis. I wish I were joking and that this never happened.
There are variations of this gent, but they all like to use the Occult/psychology, etc. to manipulate people (usually women who are young, naïve, or vulnerable at the time) into bed. I had one Bad Guru tell me I was fuqing with my karma by not “honoring the connection” between us.
It is as bad as when an abusive church priest tells someone they are risking their immortal soul by not doing what they say. Another did my Tarot and misread the whole thing to say it was about our growing sexual attraction. Vile. “You see, I am the King of Wands,” said the 40-something man to my 19-year-old self. “This means we need to explore this. On all levels.”
Fake Psychics Establish Toxic Intimacy Fast
Yes, yes, i know women do this thing too. But they are less likely to be sexual predators and more into psychic vamping i.m.o. You know when you’ve ended up with a fake psychic as she’ll try to establish toxic intimacy. She’ll act like she knows your “nasty secret” or that she can see the souls of unborn babies around you. And, they often use a fairly cursory knowledge of astrology to pontificate about “dark times ahead.”
I get a constant stream of emails from people asking for help. A mall psychic took a quick peek at an ephemeris and pronounced the said person to be destined to be forever poor or fated to be loveless. There is no astrological transit or natal position that would reflect such a fate.
If you’re purporting to represent a deity or a spiritual force – as bad gurus do – it’s already suss. Like who hires them? How did they get to be on such good terms with the Karma Police? But if you then use this bogus affiliation to violate trust and rub your sleazy paws all over someone who is not there in a sexual context, it is (1) illegal and (2) going to attract lousy energy to the perp.
Ignore The Karma Cops
As for the fake psychic people. If they’re just hopeless, fine, it’s buyer beware. But if they’re trying to disempower the client by alluding to dark scenarios or shame in the person’s past, they are toxic.
My favorite psychic was this woman who said literally three extraordinary sentences to me and then said ‘that’s it, that’s all I can pick up.” And, I believe that in most cases, you don’t need a psychic. Cultivating your skills is one of the most rewarding and empowering practices of all.
