Upon entering, what do you see? What do you smell? When you pay for your reading and go back to one of the reading rooms in the back of the store, who do you see? All of these images you see in your minds’ eye might be clear as a bell simply because, like me, you personally frequent some of these same types of shops. Or, what you might see in your mind is there because many of us have been to similar places and smelled the incense and paid to see what we were hoping would be a woman in a long flowing gypsy skirt, smelling of patchouli, gazing into a crystal ball, and telling us all of the answers to our questions.
We are certainly not suggesting that the image of the “gypsy psychic” is a bad one; in fact, some of our advisors most beloved mentors embrace this image and we would not want to imagine them any other way. However, we often wonder if this stereotypical image is what people still will see when, at a PTA meeting, telling someone they work as a psychic. But rejoice, time are changing, and our psychics can finally proudly answer the question, “What do you do for a living?”
Coming out of the Broom Closet
There will always be the beloved old-school images that form in our minds, but what really matters the most is that our neighbors and friends can see beyond this stereotypical image and embrace the fact that there are psychics from all walks of life, cultures, races, ages, and with many varying fashion tastes. We often wonder if this stereotype can be damaging to our credibility as a company with professional psychics.
A New Era of Psychics
The Psychic Advisors at Psychic Source are the new era of psychics; they have the power to change the way people stereotype psychics by seeing their careers as normally as anyone else sees their own. And, when they are asked what they do for a living, whether it is at a PTA meeting or the doctor’s office, they will stand tall in their yoga pants and sweatshirt and proudly proclaim, “I am a professional psychic.” After a while, the old stereotypes will be replaced with, well, our psychics.
