Poll: Is it better to tell it as it is, or tell the client what they want to hear?

by | Jun 10, 2018 | PsychicPRO Polls | 8 comments

Sometimes there are things you’ll see in a reading that the customer really isn’t going to want to hear. A common scenario might be a customer asking about someone they are in love with. You can that the customer might not be ready to hear the bad news you see.

At first thought, most readers will say “It doesn’t matter, I tell it like it is.” They say they would tell the client whatever they see in the reading, no matter how the client will take it.

But take a moment to think about it. Do you always tell everything you see in the reading? Or do you focus on the easy stuff and avoid the bad news. Or do you totally sugar coat the reading, and focus on what the client wants to hear? After all, they are paying for the reading. Plus, if you’re working on a network, sometimes clients hang-up early if they aren’t hearing the types of things they wanted to hear.

So, what do you do? Take a moment to vote in our poll. Then join the conversation and leave a comment below.

    Always tell it as it is! What is the purpose of giving the a person false hope?!!? It will crush them now rather them rather than keeping waiting for something that will never happen.

    Truth sets us free. Lies keep us ever uncomfortable as deep within we know what’s really going on.

    Always tell it as it is. One cannot clearly guide another seeking our help if we (the advisor) deliberately lie to the client. It’s misleading, potentially dangerous, cruel and deceptive – for starters. The advisor that resorts to these tactics and worse (to be ‘polite’ here ….this type individual/advisor should not ever do this line of work at all) it’s quite apparent they actually have very limited – to no abilities in this field, thus have no conscience either beyond their own selfish greed through their deliberate deception etc; .

    Whenever I see or sense a bad result, I try to offer actionable steps the client can take either to avoid a disaster or to prepare for it. If the client created the mess, I’ll discuss what judgement calls or behavior led to this result. If the client is truly a victim of circumstance (rare, but it happens), I’ll offer guidance and suggest resources that might be helpful. My goal is to empower clients to make lemonade out of life’s lemons; honesty is the first step in that direction.

    I like to start each reading with a prayer, connecting with spirit in my heart and to my client’s spirit. I pray to see images in the cards that will help client in their spiritual growth and present circumstances. I say things exactly as I see it and don’t edit it. I try to empower them by showing options and karmic consequences, so they can make informed choices.

    We should always be careful to take care of our clients by using compassionate means of delivering the negative components of their readings. We are not licensed mental health professionals and cannot possibly know whether or not that client may be depressed or suicidal. Tell the truth about what you see in the reading but be sure to do this in a way that leaves room for hope and positive outcomes.

I've been providing readings for as long as I can remember. By the time I was a teenager, my friends would often come to me for advice. Somehow I was always able to see the clear path before them to achieve positive results. As I grew, I began to learn more skills and discipline in my practice. Throughout my twenties and thirties, I traveled around the world meeting other lightworkers like myself. I learned so much from other readers. Eventually, I learned that my true calling went beyond providing readings and actually reaching out and helping other lightworkers and spiritual beings achieve their professional goals.

At PsychicPRO I tend to be the front line of communication with the readers looking for our services. I coordinate new projects to make sure everyone is on the same page and assist with Design and Promotions.
