It’s possible that you may be experiencing some trepidation before receiving spiritual guidance, so before you talk to a psychic, ease any anxiety by preparing yourself so that you get the best psychic reading. But first thing’s first: you’ve got to understand how a reading over the phone works. If you’re concerned about whether or not a psychic can communicate with you without being face-to-face, don’t be. You will receive the same result — if not better because a reader won’t be able to pick up on your body language.
Each psychic has a different way of tapping into a client’s energy field, or “logging on,” but typical methods include hearing guidance, tuning into energetic planes, seeing visions, working with angels or spirit guides, or simply intuition. If a psychic is channeling you, they need not be in the same room with you to accept intel from their guides — whether that’s their guides, or yours. Think of it as a spiritual conference call! And as an added bonus, you can enjoy the fact that you have complete anonymity so you’re more apt to be open with your reader.
Now that you know what you’re getting into, it’s time to discuss the important “dos and don’ts” Don’t rush this step! While it’s understandable that you want to get the ball rolling, you’ll only be cheating yourself by making a few costly errors. So, without further ado…
have an intention in mind.
Just because a psychic is clairvoyant doesn’t mean you should make them guess what’s on your mind! Always go into a reading with a clear intention. Not only will this help you craft your questions (more on that in a sec), but it helps your reader focus and tune into what’s really important for you at this moment in time. So, the moral of the story is don’t test your psychic and know exactly why you want a reading before researching and booking one.
conduct thorough research to find the best psychic for you.
Now that you’ve prioritized why you want your reading, it’s time to research which psychic you’d like to chat with. While it’s important to feel some sort of connection after reading their bio, make sure that he/she specializes in the type of psychic ability/abilities that can best assist you with your questions. For example, if you’re inquiring about how you can attract your soulmate, consult a love and relationship expert. Looking to find your soul purpose in life? An astrologer or tarot reader would be your best bet. Wishing to communicate with a deceased loved one? Opt for a psychic medium reading. Check out user reviews/testimonials to see if any of them relate to your situation.
clear your mind and heart.
As aforementioned, it’s possible that you’ll be experiencing a bit of anxiety before a reading (even if it’s not your first) and that’s completely normal! However, bringing that jumbled up energy into a reading isn’t going to do you any favors — or the psychic, for that matter. When you book your reading, pencil in a bit of extra time beforehand to center yourself. Maybe that means meditating or perhaps taking a quick walk. Basically, whatever it takes to clear your mind, banish stress, and pump up the positivity factor before diving into your session.
ask open-ended questions.
The type of questions you as (and how you ask them) can make or break a reading, but the general rule of thumb is that you should never ask anything that can be responded with a simple “yes” or “no.” With that in mind, opt for open-ended questions such as “How can I get the attention of my boss so that I can get a better position?” “What can I do to strengthen my relationship with my family?” “What can you tell me about my life purpose?” You get the picture.
This is a “do” that is often overlooked but shouldn’t be! Your mind is probably racing a mile a minute during a reading so you may not be able to process everything that’s being thrown your way. By taking notes, you can revisit your conversation long after your call is completed. Not to mention, these key insights can serve as beneficial nuggets for your next reading.
If you’re not vibing with your psychic and/or you don’t understand the information being given to you, don’t be afraid to speak up! A proverbial smile and nod aren’t going to help you solve your problems or gain more clarity. If you’re still not getting the answers you need, cut the reading short and find yourself another psychic.
have realistic expectations.
While psychic readings can be extremely beneficial and insightful, be realistic about what you’re hoping to gain from the experience. Sometimes it can be difficult for a psychic to tune in for one reason or another. It’s also possible that you’re inquiring about something too specific. Go into a reading with an open mind and you’ll be less likely to be disappointed.
have a negative/skeptical attitude.
Your negative vibes are only going to translate into the type of responses a psychic will give you. So, unless you’re ready to clear your heart and mind and go into your session with a positive attitude, don’t even both with having a reading.
believe that your reading is controlling your destiny.
The universe is enormous so it’s no surprise that there is a multitude of possibilities that can shape your life, from paths to success to soul purpose to soulmates and beyond. That said, stop focusing on what you think you want and open your mind and heart to the possible outcomes that will present themselves in your highest good. Psychics are not Gods so use their advice as an opportunity for you to decide your own fate/destiny. Nothing is set in stone during an inspirational reading.
Don’t expect the psychic to make decisions for you.
Psychics can provide valuable intuition, advice, and second opinions, but they can’t (and ethically, won’t) make decisions for you. Only you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to making decisions about where your life is going — for better or for worse.
get caught up with timelines.
Psychics frequently grapple with timing which is why they typically don’t provide time-sensitive information that requires an exact date such as “When am I going to get married?” Or, “When will I get a raise?” So, avoid asking super-specific questions — this includes those lucky lottery numbers.
feed the reader.
Aside from asking your open-ended questions or requesting clarity, let the psychic be the leader of the reading. For example, if the psychic asks you if you have a sick uncle, simply respond with “yes” or “no.” Don’t go into a diatribe about where he lives, what ailments he has, etc., or you won’t know if the information you’re receiving from the psychic is accurate or if he/she is feeding off your tips.
have a reading while under the influence.
Having a clear mind is not just about clearing mental clutter, it’s also about being sober and coherent, too. Avoid having any alcoholic beverages or other illicit substances prior to your reading. Not only will the psychic have difficulties reading you, but it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to remember any of it.
