If you watch enough movies or television about people with psychic powers you begin to believe that these people can perform amazing feats on command. You almost expect to see objects flying around the room whenever you are around or see a psychic with extremely developed psychic powers like in the current TV show The Tomorrow People. Those of us with real psychic abilities or psychic powers know that life is nothing like movies such as the X-Men or Chronicle. Therefore, we have developed this list of 5 common myths that people think all psychics are capable of. Hopefully, this will put to rest the most common myth – that we can teleport, which doesn’t even make the list of psychic powers myths – although trust me, I wish I could teleport most days!.

Myth or Reality – If a person with psychic powers receives a message, and gives it to you, that whatever the message is, it is going to happen – no matter what you do or don’t do

The reality is that  no one is destined to do any specific thing – psychic powers or not. Any information a psychic receives about you has to do with your current path in life. By changing the course of your life you can effectively change what happens in your future. This could mean that you will not experience what the psychic said would happen.

 Psychics know everything about you, from the foods you eat right down to the brand of under garments you wear – Fact or Fiction?

The truth is, if a psychic spent a lot of hours and energy trying to find out such mundane facts about you during a psychic readings online for free, it would be a personal waste of their time and psychic powers. Receiving energy from the spirits takes little effort when the spirit wants to tell you something. Trying to find more specific details that the spirit is not looking for takes a ton of energy. It just doesn’t make sense to expend that much energy to determine such trivial things about someone.  So no, the psychic sitting across from you or the online psychic you’re speaking to DOESN’T know what sort of underwear you’re wearing – if you’re wearing any at all!

Science has never been able to prove that true psychic powers exist

This is only partly true. Science has not been able to measure psychic powers in any way that would be 100% accurate. Some things can be reproduced, by not with enough accuracy to be sure of its truth. Some scientists have seen enough to know that something is happening, just that they cannot always scientifically reproduce those results. The number of scientists studying these abilities continues to grow. It is only a matter of time before they develop a new technique that will allow them to accurately measure these powers.

Myth: All those with psychic powers read tarot cards

Reality: A lot of psychics do read tarot cards, a lot of psychics do not. There are many psychics who work exclusively with one or more of the Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) powers such as Clairaudience, Clairsentience or Clairvoyance and never read tarot cards. There are some psychics who exclusively use tarot cards, and some of these psychics learned to read tarot cards mainly because their customers preferred having their cards read over any other psychic reading.

People with Psychic Powers communicate with the dead, and this is where they get all their information

Some do and some don’t. There is a lot of misinformation on what is meant by “communicating with dead people”. Not many people know that the majority of Spirit Guides were alive at one point in time, but have chosen to become a guide to help living people. Most people have no problem understanding communication with Spirit Guides. There are also some psychics who can communicate with a specific person or people who have passed on. However, not every psychic has (or wants) this special ability.

Hopefully, you have a better understanding of some of the more common myths surrounding those with psychic abilities.  Remember, TV and movies are fiction.  They portray things is romanticized, stereotypical ways to make the movie interesting and attract viewers.  The reality of most things is much more mundane and that includes psychic powers.  While there are people out there with amazing abilities, the reality of having psychic powers isn’t nearly as fantastical as it is often portrayed.
