Should UK Psychic Medium services be paid for?
“A genuine Psychic Medium is not real if they charge money.”
Whilst reading the many posts on blogs and comments on websites, I have seen time after time numerous complaints or a general negative view on the topic as to whether a Psychic Medium should charge for their services or not. The general consensus is that if they are ‘genuine’ they should not. I sort of understand the point being made but for the reasons I will state below, I think this is a flawed view and I personally do not agree with Psychic Mediums not being paid.
Time is Money!!!!
Would you work for free or give up your spare time for free?
Yes, in some cases people do but it is rare. Yes, charities and to help those in financial crises, this is an ethic I have employed whilst working as a Psychotherapist and as a Psychic Medium. As long as any room hire and petrol is covered and a client is in provable hardship, no further charge will be given to them. I do try to help people in this situation but do not expect others to work this way. The only exception to this is as long as I have paying clients surrounding these non paid readings, I can offer this service to those in hardship. We all have a mortgage to pay!
This is not a justification as to why I charge, because yes, as you see above, I do. But as you will see, I have good reason as to why a Psychic Medium or Psychic should charge for their services. Stated below are
the various different types of Psychic Mediums (and Psychics) and how the topic of charging applies (or not).
The Trained UK Psychic Medium Services
If they have been formally trained, courses cost money. Whilst I dispute the effectiveness of a trained Psychic Medium (or Spiritual Medium) by a stereotypical home study course (the type you see advertised on the internet for £19.95), today’s post is just in relation to the monetary aspect of all so I will cover the effectiveness in a later post. The fact that money has been paid out, whether it be a large or small amount leads to the argument back that if they have spent money to train and gain a skill, why should they not charge? With any service offered to the general public, a charge usually applies unless it is a charity of some sort. Some Psychic Mediums have paid hundreds and into thousands (or just £19.95!) for the training and need to claw back the vast monies spent. Fair?
The Untrained UK Psychic Medium Services
If the Psychic Medium has what is termed ‘a gift’, the type that is stated as ‘a natural’ or ‘from birth’ (the type that state their mother and grandmother “read the tea leaves” etc) the rule of time is money still applies. And this I stand firm by.
If someone offered me anything for free, the perceived value and expectation would be diminished. Does anybody offer a professional service for free. Personally, any reading offered for little or no money would be subject to the above scrutiny….where is the confidence in the reader if they could not charge for their services?
The ‘Just For Fun’ UK Psychic Medium Services
As a UK Psychic Medium, communication with the dead either takes place or not. And unfortunately there are plenty on the various sociable medium platforms and USA streets that cannot. With that said, I am led to believe that there are plenty that claim they can but for sure can’t with the sole intention to prey on fragile, desperate and grieving people but again, this will be covered on a future post. Just for fun implies just giving it a go. For that reason they should not be paid for incorrect information that is (or is not) brought up and could potentially be harmful. There is a big responsibility with Psychic Mediums and again will write a longer post about the various psychological states a grieving human can be in when they have lost someone. Like most areas of life, this should be left to a professional and for this reason, somebody just playing about with it should not be paid and should not be doing it in the first place.
So back to “a genuine Psychic Medium shouldn’t charge money or they are not real.” I personally think it is more the other way around but like everything in this world, it is there to be abused and yes, the Psychic industry certainly is. I am sure there are exceptions but I am just broadly speaking and this is just a personal view. So if a lovely old lady offers you a free reading for fun, if you are grieving I would be inclined to pass on the offer.
But unfortunately, just because they charge for the service doesn’t make them legitimate, I just disagree that if they don’t do it for free they are therefore not the real deal 🙂
