Psychic text message readings have become more and more popular in recent years. Text messages combine the anonymity and privacy of email readings with the immediate, real time connection of in person or phone readings. Almost all of the major online psychic networks offer text readings. Most free or sample readings are offered by text, and there are even psychic apps for your smartphone or tablet. In this article, we will talk about the various options available, how to choose between these options, and provide tips for obtaining the useful and accurate psychic text message readings.
Where to Find Accurate Psychic Text Message Readings
The most important consideration when looking for a psychic reading of any kind is whether the reading is accurate. There are many options available. We will guide you through the most common ways to find a psychic adviser who will work by text.
Large Psychic Networks
Most of the major online psychic networks offer text readings. The advantage to using a large network is that the advisers are screened and have published reviews. Psychic networks charge by the minute, and most have an introductory rate of $1 per minute for your first reading. Generally large networks will have their own text messaging platform, and some have smartphone apps for your iPhone or Android device.
Another advantage to using a large network is that they tend to offer money back guarantees if you are dissatisfied with your reading at any point. They will either refund your money or issue a credit for you to seek out a different adviser.
Smaller Companies and Private Psychics
In addition to the large networks, there are countless small companies and individual psychics that offer text readings. The advantage to using small companies or individuals is that it is might be easier to develop a personal relationship with your adviser. The disadvantage is that you will have to do your homework to make sure that the psychic is genuine. Also, unlike large networks, smaller companies and individual freelance psychics generally do not offer money back guarantees for their services.
If you decide to use a private adviser, you may want to seek referrals from people you know and trust. When you ask your friends and family, you might be surprised at how many have used psychics. If you have previously seen and developed a relationship with a psychic in person, by phone, or by email, consider asking if they offer text message services as well.
Text a Psychic for Free
You might think that you want to try a psychic reading, but you are afraid to invest your hard earned money until you have tried one out. Luckily, many of the larger networks, such as Psychic Source, Hollywood Psychics, and Keen, offer 3 minutes for free with your first reading. There are smaller networks and private psychics that also offer free sample readings. Many sites will offer a free daily horoscope or tarot reading as well, which are usually computer generated.
It may seem like there is nothing to lose with a free reading. You did not pay anything, so if it is not accurate, you have not lost anything either. It is important to be careful, however. Sites that offer free services are generally hoping that you will use their paid services. Most larger networks will be up front about their practices and charges, but smaller companies or freelance psychics may try to do a “bait and switch” or use the free reading to manipulate you to purchase more expensive services.
Text a Psychic Medium
A psychic medium is a special adviser who is able to communicate with those who have gone to the other side. A psychic medium is useful if you want to connect with a departed loved one for comfort or closure. While there are very few psychic mediums that will work by email, many give text message readings.
Text a Love Psychic
Just as there are psychics that specialize in communicating with those who have gone to the other side, there are also advisers that specialize in matters of love and relationships. You may want to seek a love psychic for help with decisions such as whether to pursue a relationship or for difficulties in a long term relationship or marriage. Psychic text message readings can be useful when you need real time assistance, but you do not have the privacy for a phone reading.
Psychic Text Apps
If you search in the App Store for iOS or the Google Play Store for Android, you will find countless Psychic Apps. Many of these are computer generated tarot, runes or horoscope apps, but there are some that are for true psychics. Some of the larger psychic networks also have apps. Keen has an app for iOS. Oranum, California Psychics, and Kasamba have apps for both iOS and Android.
There are other psychic apps such as Purple Ocean, PsychicTxt, and MyPsychic, but they all have mixed reviews.
What to Do During Psychic Text Message Readings
In one sense, psychic text readings are no different than in person or phone readings. You will come with your issues and concerns, and your adviser will do their best to guide you using their abilities. On the other hand, there are some special considerations when using text. We will guide you through preparing for your session, what to do during the reading itself, and address some special concerns.
Are Psychic Text Message Readings Right for You?
The first thing to consider before receiving psychic texts readings is whether they are right for you. Are you comfortable communicating using text messages? While texting has a lot of advantages, it also has limitations. Neither you or the psychic will be able to hear each others voice, so if you need a comforting presence, a text chat may seem a little cold.
How fast do you type or text? On the major psychic networks, text and phone readings are generally billed at the same rate per minute. If you are slow at typing or texting, a text reading may be a lot more expensive than a phone reading.
Is your situation long and involved? In such a case, you may be better off with a reading by phone or email. It can be difficult to communicate complex information via text messages. One of the advantages to psychic text readings is that you will have a transcript of the session for future reference without the need to take notes. This can also be a disadvantage, however. If you are sharing information of a private or sensitive nature, it could be awkward to have a written record that could be found by others.
Preparing for Psychic Text Message Readings
Psychic readings over text are just as important as readings over any other medium, so you will want to be prepared. Think about your questions and concerns ahead of time. Generally, your adviser will direct the session, but the nature of text messaging requires more concise questions and responses than phone conversations or email. You do not want to waste the time you are paying for fumbling through thinking of what to say.
Just as with any other kind of reading, it might be helpful for you to take some time to meditate, journal, or pray before you begin. This will aid both you and the psychic in getting the most helpful and accurate reading.
You will also want to find a place where you can be comfortable and free from distractions. This is just as important as it is in phone readings, and perhaps even more important. During phone readings, others will usually respect your privacy. During text readings, however, they may not know what is going on and feel free to interrupt. This is particularly true if you have children.
During the Reading
Now that you have thought through your questions and concerns, prepared yourself through prayer, meditation, and/or journaling, and found a quiet place free from distractions, you are ready to begin. You will want to close your other tasks or apps on your computer, device, or cell phone. Just as you do not want human or pet distractions, you do not want distractions from your electronics.
As much as you can, try to use natural language rather than abbreviations or emoji. You want your questions to be as clear as possible so that the psychic can focus on your concerns rather than trying to decipher what you are saying.
Allow your adviser to direct the session, particularly if you are consulting with a medium psychic. They may want to limit the information they receive from you so that they can be sure that the impressions they get are genuine.
When you have the opportunity, ask for clarification for anything that you do not understand. If something seems off or wrong, do not hesitate to speak up. If the psychic seems to be probing you for information or if they start talking about curses or hexes, these are red flags for potential fraud. The large networks usually offer refunds or credits if you are not satisfied with the reading. For this reason, it is best to stop the reading if you are uncomfortable as soon as possible.
After the Reading
When your reading is finished, you will have a transcript. You may want to keep the transcript saved in a safe place so that you can refer to it later. It is very common for things that did not make sense during the reading to make sense later.
If you are using a large network, be sure to rate your adviser. Ratings are extremely important to their livelihood. If they did a good job for you, you will want that to show. By the same token, if they did not do a good job, you will want others to know that before hiring them. Everyone has a bad day, however, so try to not to be overly harsh if your adviser was sincere and did their best.
A Word of Caution About Dependency
Psychic text message readings can be useful and life changing. You may develop a lasting relationship with your adviser. Such a relationship can be a great source of guidance. You do want to be careful, however, about becoming dependent on psychic readings. Dependency can form over any medium, but psychic text message readings carry a special danger.
Text messages are easy and convenient, and you can get an immediate response. Life can be complicated and scary. It can seem wonderful to have instant guidance at your fingertips. There is a danger in this, however. Not only can this become expensive, it can hamper your ability to live your life. Asking for guidance for every little decision is giving away your power and will hamper your spiritual growth and development.
An ethical psychic will not encourage dependency. With large psychic networks you have the opportunity to use different psychics, who will not know about your other readings.
Guidelines For Avoiding Dependency
- Only get readings for important matters. You should only seek guidance for things that have been continuously on your mind for over 24 hours. You should also try to solve the problem by ordinary means first. It goes without saying that this guideline does not apply to true emergencies.
- Do not ask the same question more than once, unless something significant has changed. This applies to asking different psychics or using other forms of divination. For example, you do not want to ask a psychic the same question that you asked another psychic, a tarot reader, or an astrologer. If you ask the same things over and over, the answers will get more and more muddled each time you ask. It is perfectly acceptable to seek clarification, but this is not same as asking the same question repeatedly, hoping you will get a different answer.
