Top Ten Myths About Being a Psychic/Healer

Here are my 10 top myths about being a psychic/healer.


1. All Seeing and All Knowing

Perhaps the biggest misconception is that I’m all seeing and all knowing. Like I know where you lost your phone 1 year ago, and asking if I can tell you whose house it’s in and what the address is. And the usual asking for the winning lotto numbers. And no, I can’t see you in my mind when you go to the toilet.


2. Heal You Of All Your Issues In One Session

I’m sure people have miracle healings, which is what we all want, right? Most of the time it’s not the case, and it’s a matter of peeling away the layers to get to different core beliefs and trapped energy.


3. Healing You Outside of Your Session

Often times I will be asked to relay information in case anything comes to me outside of a session. If I stayed open all the time to catch anything that might come to me about all of my clients I would be a nervous wreck. When the session is over I’m generally thinking about myself and my life. I’m not open to information outside of the session to keep myself sane.


4. Tuning Into People Just Because I Can

We all have our issues, just because I can tune into people doesn’t mean I want to. I don’t see people walking down the street and wonder what’s going on in their lives. Apart from the usual things we all notice, perhaps someone’s stooped over walk or the way they groom themselves, I really don’t care to.


5. A Bottomless Pit of Energy

Psychics and Healers aren’t bottomless pits of energy. Sure it’s best we don’t use our own energy to heal, but we still get tired just like you do in your job. As we are working in the spiritual realms we get tired more so.


6. That We Must Be Perfect

I have my healing issues that I have to work on, just as you do. I don’t feel I have to be perfect in order to work with you, we are all works in progress.


7. We Are Evil

Sounds pretty funny when you write it out, but you wouldn’t believe the amount of attacks I and some of my colleagues still get from people who feel the need to tell me that we are evil and doing the devils work. I used to reply but now I don’t.


8. We Are Jam Jars

I describe most of the world as being like jam jars and psychics are like crystal vases, they are easily shattered. Being highly sensitive is how we are able to do our job, and that doesn’t mean we are defective because of it, or too highly strung. Our brains seem to process information in a different way. It often can take years learning how to manage the way we negotiate the world.


9. We Are All New Age Airy Fairy

I don’t wear gypsy skirts and hoop earrings and sleep on a bed of crystals and astral travel around the Universe. In fact I swear like a wharfie and I like watching cop shows on TV and like to keep up with what’s going on in Hollywood. I’m very down to earth and practical.


10. We Should Work For Free

I have to pay my bills as you do, so just as you wouldn’t work for free, nor do I. I have spent years training in different modalities to get to the level I am now, and I can’t do sessions end on end, day in and day out, or I would burn out. There’s a great quote out there by Ghandi’s accountants, how it took a lot of money to keep him poor.


Are there any other misconceptions you have about psychic/healers?

  • Jeni Powell

    Excellent post and very valid points – its wonderful that you have combined all the usual comments that get thrown around into a concise and easy to read format ….thank you!

  • Hemal

    Nice article, Kate 🙂

  • Kate

    Thanks Hemal, it seems to have exploded on FB 🙂

  • Hemal

    Wonderful! Me ‘liking’ it did appear on my profile, as well as I’m sure everyone else’s who did.
    I didn’t seem to get an email notification of your comment…I just happened to come here and see your comment. Maybe I missed it or something 🙂
    Great that it has exploded and you are getting good exposure 🙂

  • Kate

    Yea, its funny that something I wrote in 10 mins resonated for so many, it just fell out of me lol

  • Hemal

    Lol, you seemed to have really hit the spot on that one!
    (Just so you know, I didn’t get an email notification for your comment, not sure why, this time I’ll try a different email address if it’s that)

  • Kate

    So you checked the notify boxes?

  • Hemal

    Yes both of them, and then clicked the confirmation link in the email that followed and it took me to a page that said “subscription activated” or words like that. This time I used a different email address and still didn’t get a notification of your comment just now (and this is in emails before downloading and before they go into junk/spam folder etc).

  • Kate

    Thanks, Ill ask my tech guy.

  • Pankaj Pandey

    Let me check i get notification or not.

  • Melissa Leath

    Wow, you were really on a rampage, eh? I know the feeling, too. The one that always gets me is that I should be there on the spot at the client’s “beck and call” — just drop what I have scheduled and give them a session. When I say sorry, but I’m booked up for several weeks/month ahead, they say, “Oh I was hoping to get something as soon as possible” (??)

    Love your stuff. I’ll be back…M

    • Kate

      oh yes, Melissa, perfect. yes. of course. I dont think Im through the other side of that one to be objective. Being a workaholic. I kicked myself this week for overbooking, I like to take a day off in the middle of the week to recharge. Forgot I liked that when booking lol

  • Kate

    I just stumbled upon your site when looking for an answer to my psoas issue… First, your insights about the psoas hit me to my core! Pun intended.. haha. Then, I found all sorts of great information like the “sway technique” and your post above. I am a bodyworker and intuitive healer… Love your site and your approach. Thanks so much for doing the work and following your path.

    • Kate

      Hi Kate, thanks for your comments, just what I needed to hear, I came onto my site a few days ago and its been badly neglected, I have been working doing sessions but I also work for my son, who I love dearly, I can only work doing what I love. So it was lovely to read your comments through fresh eyes.

      • Kate

        Interesting you should mention the work you love. I love it too. It rarely feels like work to me. It’s not always sunshine and rainbows (as I am sure you know!).. There are weeks when I think I might be spreading myself too thin and other times when I think I can hear every cricket within a 20 mile radius. I suppose working on such a subtle level requires us to live subtly too. It’s nice to find a site like yours that reiterates the healer’s journey. No matter how neglected you might think your site is, the information is there, it is very helpful, AND you are very responsive. Do you still offer classes?

        • Kate

          Thanks so much Kate for your lovely comments. No I dont offer classes, I do all my sessions by email now 🙂
