Psychic Misconceptions - If you were psychic you would know....

Pam Coronado:
If you were psychic you would know my name. If I never hear this statement again, it will be too soon. I am not omniscient (having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things)nor is any human that I know. I might be able to "intuit" your name if I concentrate hard enough but why expend loads of energy when you can just tell me? This statement seems funny to skeptics but it stems from a lack of understanding how hard one has to work for accurate psychic information. 
Karen Hollis: 
There are many people that come for a reading who are not suitably "impressed" with your psychic ability unless you can intuit their name, and/or a name of a relative, or someone dear to them who has passed away. I call this "stump the psychic." They take off wedding rings, as if I will notice or not notice. (Trust me, a wedding ring no longer signifies commitment with all the infidelity in the world. Sad, but true) Some will lie about their names thinking I have "googled them" in advance - (like I have the time for this nonsense), and others will sit "stone cold-faced" thinking that if they show any emotion it will "tip me off" in some way. (NOPE - it doesn't work that way). Some of the best readings I have done are by phone with only your voice to energetically tap into. The best way to have a "psychic reading" is to just be yourself, relax, try to remain "open" energetically without telling the psychic your life story in advance. When reveal too much, you take away the ability of the psychic to know what is a "psychic hit" and what is not when reading your future. A psychic's conscious mind (what they know of what you have told them about yourself) will fight with the sub-conscious mind (what they are getting as a psychic "hit"). Be encouraging by admitting when a psychic is right about a detail in your life, and make the reading interactive so that you get the most out of it. 

Pychic Misconceptions - Pam Coronado & Karen Hollis

Pam Coronado
Psychics are psychic all the time.  I don't know about others, but I turn it on and off at will. If I meet you on the street or in the grocery store, I am not going to know your secrets or your name :) Turning it on takes a great deal of energy so when I'm not working, I'm not on. I'm probably pondering what to make for dinner or the best deal on laundry detergent. Besides, privacy is privacy so I don't think it's right to walk up to strangers and impart private information without being asked. On the flip side, I am more sensitive to my environment, especially the emotions of those around me, which can make me uneasy in crowds and noise sensitive. That aspect never shuts off, which I guess is why we are called sensitives. 
Karen Hollis
I tell my clients that I am like that girl in the movie "50 First Dates." Once you leave my office, I probably will not remember your name, whether I have read for you, or anything about your reading. If you come back for a reading, :) It is like I am "Santa Claus" and I know if you have been naughty or nice! LOL Like Pam, I cannot watch anything with violence in it, and I avoid the news because there is way too much harshness in the world. This is not easy as I am married to a man that used to work for NBC nightly news. I leave the room as the television clicks on. If I am standing in the grocery isle, I am not reading you. At the bank, not reading you. Ladies room, yup, you guessed it....not reading you. Could I? Sure, I I care to....No. So, breathe easy.....I am just me. Karen

Psychic Misconceptions by Pam Coronado revisited by Karen Hollis

I wanted to applaud Pam Coronado for writing a series of Questions and then responding with answers that helped to clarify for my clients as well as hers what a psychic is and is not. I will Blog post a few of these in the next few days.
Thank you, Pam!
A real psychic would know all of the answers. I think this widespread misconception has been passed down through the ages by fortune tellers and psychics claiming to be perfect.  If you meet one of these, run and don't look back.  No psychic is 100%.  There is simply no such creature.  I get fragments of the story, blurry images and puzzle pieces.  I may misinterpret something I saw or worse, miss something important. I get some answers, rarely all of the answers.  We are humans, I think the biggest aspect of living on this great planet is in the not knowing all of the answers.  There would be no challenge, surprises or mystery if we knew all.
Karen Hollis' comment: This is especially true when dealing with people's relationships issues as both people have FREE WILL to do what they want whether that is engage in leaving the relationship or choosing to stay in the relationship. A psychic can only see as far as a person has made a decision. Think of it as a snapshot in time if you will. If nothing changes, then "this event, meeting, reconciliation, breakup, or whatever" will happen.
