The world of psychics can be an insular world. The title of the post is not a typo. I’m not referring to people sceptical of psychic, rather to psychics sceptical of people.
Many true psychics start out naively (but altruistically) sharing their gift with the rest of the world. For the most part, many people are receptive to psychics and even those who are unsure may be open-minded and curious enough to give it a try. However, as time goes by, psychics will inevitably encounter the naysayers and unbelievers. Sceptics come with various personalities along a range or gradient of scepticism from mild to severe/close-minded even in the face of indisputable evidence. What’s frustrating for many psychics is that it’s often an insurmountable disconnect. So the natural course of action is to dismiss, ignore, and simply remove contact from the non-believers.
And that is a fair outcome one would expect anywhere. Just like in many institutional religions, for example, parishioners will respect non-believers’ right to not believe but will peacefully co-exist in the same community. Now some religions of course promote a missionary doctrine that encourages conversion and spreading the message (whatever that may be). Psychics aren’t quite as dogmatic nor institutional as organized religion is. While this affords a lot of freedom in their beliefs, abilities, and craft, it also removes a pillar of support and a widely-accepted universal clarity or purpose.
This presents a problem for psychics. And how they solve it is to surround themselves with believers who accept their psychic truths and abilities without question. It becomes natural for psychics to distrust outsiders including those genuinely interested in their craft and community. In a way it’s sort of a survival instinct or mechanism. Psychics aren’t comfortable proving their abilities to people who don’t believe because the outcome is almost always the same. The non-believer continues to disbelieve. And a psychic is a guide not God. Thus, the two views are nearly always incompatible.
The other problem with psychics surrounding themselves with the same people who deeply share their views and philosophy is that it inhibits their ability to grow their craft and gift. Just like an athlete pushes his/her endurance in rigorous training on a regular basis, so too must a psychic push themselves to grow and develop and become better and better at their craft. Not every outsider is a sceptic and not ever sceptic is an enemy to psychics. And the same goes with those who may hold different opinions and beliefs about psychics within the community itself.
So my plea to psychics everywhere is to open up and be more welcoming of new people and new ideas and allow yourself the opportunity to grow and develop even if it means a bit of a trip outside the comfort zone. Being challenged to be open to and accepting of new faces is a good thing.
And for the new people exploring the world of psychics, recognize that there is distrust and self-preservation mechanism involved (coming from the psychics). Be open with your views and your circumstances in an honest and straightforward manner. Hopefully, that will demonstrate your integrity and clear intent and purpose that will only lead to mutual benefit. And if you don’t feel like you are comfortable or welcome in that environment, consider it that particular psychic’s loss and move on to find another one. The good ones ARE out there!
