Silvia Brown is probably the most popular celebrity psychic out there. You all know her, and if you don’t know her, then you should fix that and head to Wikipedia. She represents the group of psychics that I call ‘celebrity psychics’. Some of them are legitimate, some not. What about Silvia Brown? Is she a legitimate psychic? Well, I haven’t scanned her, so I cannot say. But I’ve read opinions of others, who did scan her, and they can say this: she’s psychic. She’s not very spiritual, but she’s psychic.
Celebrities are all around us. We have celebrity actors, singers, politics, bloggers, and if you’re ready to learn a bit about the Internet, you can become a celebrity plumber (and it’s not an irony about Ghost Hunters). We have celebrity psychics, as well. Psychics who work in radio, who have their own TV shows, and things like that. It’s the old way of becoming famous and making huge money by being a psychic. But today is different.
The Internet gives so many great opportunities for psychics these days. You can create your own website, publish e-books, and offer psychic services. And you can get a large group of fans, customers and readers. And you can make a career. In the old days, the only real way to make a career as psychic was to go to a TV station, and become a celebrity. Silvia Brown is a result of such old school approach. What you should understand is that a celebrity psychic isn’t the same thing as fake psychic :). There are many famous psychics that are a real deal.
I’m not a type of celebrity psychic. I’m a type of normal psychic who uses different mediums to reach as many people as possible. But don’t ask me about TV appearance :).
Some time ago, yet I’m not sure where, I’ve read something like this: “no psychic will refuse apperance in TV; after all, this is what all psychics want“, and there was something about proving that psychics are fake and things like that. Well, what is my opinion about this? Yes, I would like to be famous. I love when people are recommending my website and my books to their friends. I love when someone is referring others to my psychic services. Does it mean that I would agree to appear in any TV show? Short answer is – no.
Simple because I do not like TV shows that discuss paranormal and psychic phenomena. And I believe that psychic and spiritual growth is not something that should be changed into an entertainment show. It’s much more than this. I’m not here to prove anything, or entertain people. And I understand the word “famous” differently than most of these TV show guys. It doesn’t mean that I won’t appear in TV in the future. It just means that I’m not going to appear there to prove anything, or discuss psychic phenomena etc. You know that it’s much more possible that I will appear in TV as a businessman than as psychic.
My teacher told me a story. He was approached by a man who wanted to perform a de-Christianization – remove the energetic imprints of Christian rituals. Everything was already set up, but the man said to my teacher, “One more thing, I would like to invite the TV”. When my teacher heard that, he said, “No.” Just like that. The man in question has found another person to perform the ritual. My teacher didn’t want to make the whole ritual (psychic work) into an entertainment show.
This is something most people forget about. Psychic work is not a show for your entertainment. It’s a way to work with your mind, soul and physical body. And sometimes, it’s dangerous, or at least problematic for people who receive psychic help.
The problem with celebrity psychics is that they are “subjects” (sorry guys) to the laws of celebrities. It means that the press and media will hunt for their single mistake. And for big media, single mistake is the only mistake that they need. One mistake and you’re a fraud definitely. Or a sex maniac. Or drug dealer, or things like that. This is something that has happened to that guy who predicted a mass grave, that turned out to be fake.
The big media are interested only in the failures of psychics. And when there’s a psychic that is correct, then you can be sure that you won’t hear or read about him or her in big media. Why so? One of the ASoM’s readers,, commented this on Facebook:
I suppose people like to take advantage of that window of opportunity to show their aggression/dominance towards something they don’t understand.
Whoever controls the media, controls the people’s mind. This is so simple. And that’s why I don’t like TV – it’s a tool of manipulation. And for this reason, Silvia Brown might be known as one of the most famous fake psychics out there. As I said, I didn’t scan her. Other psychics say that Silvia Brown is a real deal. But even so, by most people she will be considered as fake, just because she made some mistakes that become popular on Wikipedia and YouTube. Or should I say, just because her failures were famous in the media, while her successes are less known. Our big media are making money because they provide information about destruction, failures, problems etc. It’s hard to make money on positive stuff, isn’t it?
If you want to be a professional psychic (or maybe you are already), then you need to remember this lesson: no psychic is 100% accurate. Psychics get things wrong from time to time. It’s all based on your experience, knowledge, skills, and interpretation abilities. But you might be wrong. Celebrity psychics aren’t different. The problem is that some of them might make this “100% accurate” their slogan, a marketing tool. And when they will be wrong at last, it will lead to problems.
Here’s an advice from less known psychic for you, famous guys :). Don’t pretend to be 100% accurate, because you’re not. And in most cases, you won’t ever be 100% accurate. Accept that you might be wrong, and admit it. I often take this modern economics approach to psychic skills. Be like a modern company – admit when you’re wrong. It sounds honest to say “I’m 99% accurate”, than to say “I’m 100% accurate”. Because when you’re wrong, people will remember your dishonesty. And when you say that you can get wrong from time to time, then people admire your honesty. When you’re wrong, offer a refund. Or additional service for free.
There are different forms of success. Some people want to be famous, and personally, I see nothing wrong with that. I would like to be popular, as well (except TV appearance). Maybe you wish to get popular. Know this, you don’t have to become popular to be professional psychic, and at the same time, you don’t have to feel bad about being popular psychic. I see nothing wrong in this kind of marketing, as long as you’re honest with people, and honest with yourself.
There’s a problem, though. Not every psychic, celebrity or not, really is psychic. Some are just faking stuff just to get attention, or to make money. It’s normal, and it happens in every field of our existence. Except paid sex, you can’t fake sex, can you? Fake psychics might lead to many problems.
As you can see, fake psychics can be problematic, really. But is it our job to track down fake psychics? I don’t think so. I believe that the best thing to do here, would be to let go of any mission you might have. Don’t try to hunt psychics, because it’s pointless. And it might hold you back in your own development. Let the Universe guide you, maybe it will lead you to some fake psychics who could use your real psychic help to learn some things for real?
There are few things yo can learn from celebrity psychics, both from their mistakes and successes. If you’re thinking about becoming professional psychic, or at least semi-pro, below are things you should keep in mind.
With these simple advices, you will be a bit safer in the world of professional psychics, and your customers will be much happier. And remember – there’s nothing wrong in being a celebrity psychic, as long as you remain both psychic and honest person.
