With Suzie Price.
Psychic mediums have always been surrounded by mystery and scepticism. How do they know what they know and why? Are they legitimate or do they use dishonest techniques to scam the public? These are some of the many questions the Ghost Whisperer Suzie Price is asked all the time.
When Suzie was seven she was involved in a horrific car accident and was almost killed. It was after this incident that she began to see spirits and communicate with them. However, it wasn’t until she was older that she rediscovered her gift and started giving readings and helping people reconnect with their dead loved ones.
Now Suzie is one of Australia’s top psychic mediums and has given more than 15,000 readings in 17 years, and was awarded the People’s Choice Award by the International Psychic Association in 2014. Suzie, who has been featured on Haunted Australia and Psychic TV, has been exposed to the many scepticisms surrounding the psychic industry. Here she busts the top three myths regarding psychics and mediums.
Myth 1: If psychic mediums were real, it would be easy to find missing persons
There are many real-life cases where psychics or mediums have helped find missing persons or solve murder cases, but generally speaking it doesn’t happen often. Having been involved in a few missing persons cases on a professional level, I can say it is not as simple as it sounds. The cases I have worked on were unsolved suspected abductions and murders of young girls from decades before. I was able to connect with the girls’ spirits and I was given impressions of different circumstances surrounding their deaths including locations, however, there are often dozens or even hundreds of different locations that may fit those impressions I had. Much of the information you may receive in crime cases is very general and not specific enough to be of any real help in finding their bodies. With the right circumstances and a good connection, psychics can be of valuable assistance in finding missing persons, but unfortunately there are many factors that affect the information and how we relate to it, so it is often not precise enough.
Myth 2: Psychic mediums can read minds
Psychics and mediums do not and cannot read minds. They can tune into your individual energy field that contains information about your life, but they can’t read your mind or know what you’re thinking. We receive information through our psychic senses about the person we are connecting to and information comes through in bits and pieces. We may see images, hear brief noises, voices or words, get a glimpse of a smell or taste and/or feel an energy shift in different parts of our body, which indicates a message. All this information has to be put together to make sense and it can be hard to relay what different things mean. The information can be about places, events or people related to their past, present or future.
Myth 3: Psychic mediums can predict the future
Psychics and mediums do not actually predict the future. What we can do is tune into energies connected to future events in people’s lives using our psychic senses to give insights into possible outcomes. Using tools such as tarot cards, palmistry and astrology combined with information that we gather through our psychic senses, we can often give insights into possible future events with some degree of accuracy. However, we can get it completely wrong and can misinterpret the information we receive. It is for this reason that we require acknowledgement from the client as to whether the information we are sharing resonates with them. It should be a perfect fit and even if it doesn’t make sense to us, it should make sense to them. The future is written in sand and can be altered.
