Now that you know the two different types of psychic readers out there, then we can address the bigger question. For shut-eyed psychics, they could, in fact, be real, but it will take a great deal of time to really decide if these are real. It is a very personal decision on your part, because there is a certain inherent amount of faith that you need to have in the psychic reader. Open-eyed psychic readers are much easier to believe in, though, because there is no inherent mystical ability, but rather a highly-trained skill that involves being able to read and interpret a great deal of symbols and signs in a particular manner to give guidance that you ask for.

When it comes to psychic readers out there, there tend to be two different types. The first type is the ones who believe that they are actually in touch with the minds of others and that they can see the future. Typically, these kinds of psychics are called shut-eyed psychics. The second type is the psychics who aren’t in-tune with mystical powers, but rather hold a great deal of skill with a particular form of divination, such as numerology, I Ching, tarot or even reading palms. These are considered open-eyed psychic readers.

This question plagues just about anyone who has ever considered getting one of those free online psychic readings, and with good reason, because it seems hard to believe that people who could actually talk to the other side would be typing up psychic readings for people. So, are they real? Can they really use tarot cards, astrology or I Ching to help you discover your future? Well, that depends on a few things. The first and most obvious is whether or not you are dealing with a blatant scam artist, and most often, you can tell because they won’t know how to answer direct questions, will try to scam you into paying for more information, and most likely will only say glowing positive things to you. The second, and the more difficult, is the actual question: Are online psychics real?

Overall, if you are concerned with the “validity” of your online psychic readings, then you should focus on readings that will utilize tools of divination like tarot or numerology, or to develop a relationship with the psychics that you communicate with and see what feels right to you.
