If you’ve ever wondered what the future holds, you’re not alone. Whether you call your adviser a mystic, a spiritualist, a medium, or an intuitive, we all need someone to help us delve deeper into our lives at some point. Visiting a mystic can cause anxiety and excitement at the same time. This is especially true if you’ve never experienced a psychic reading before. For the consultation to be fruitful, there are a few things you should know before you go.
Go In With a Clear Head
No matter if you’re feeling stuck and looking for general guidance or you have a specific issue, the anticipation can cause you to feel restless and nervous the night before. Many people cope with the anxiety by having a few drinks or taking something to help them sleep. Professional spiritual advisers recommend refraining from using any substances for about 24 hours before a reading.
The reasons relate to your mental energy and clarity. Being hungover or having sedatives in your system can leave you feeling groggy and not so clear-headed to next day. This grogginess can negatively affect the experience by inhibiting the flow of energy, blocking or distorting any messages that might be coming through.
When possible, try to schedule your visit when you have a day off from work. If your schedule is limited, at least try to arrive early for your consultation. This extra time will help you to have a clearer mind and more relaxed attitude if you limit outside distractions and sources of stress like hectic work days or traffic problems. The more comfortable you are when you arrive for your visit, the better your energy and focus.
You might also be a little nervous about the consultation itself. A competent spiritual adviser will be able to feel low or negative energy and try to put you at ease at the onset of your meeting. If you’re concerned that you might hear something negative or receive bad news, be open with your mystic about your feelings.
Choosing someone who’s widely known and reputable or on the recommendation of a trusted friend or relative may also help lessen your fear of the unknown. It helps to prepare yourself beforehand, both mentally and by having a realistic idea of what you hope to gain from experience.
Know How to Phrase Your Questions
Yes or no questions aren’t helpful if you’re trying to gain insight into your life. Asking something like “Am I going to get a raise or a promotion?” may elicit a definitive answer, but you won’t get much enlightenment. It’s much more productive and helpful to phrase question as “How?” rather than “What?”
For example, if you’re going through a rough patch in your marriage or partnership, asking if you’re going to break up is the wrong question. You’ll gain more clarity by asking how you can improve your relationship, or job performance, or other important parts of your life. Your mystic adviser may also be able to tell you what factors are leading to recurring cycles or patterns in your life, and how to remove any blockages to the path forward.
Have Your Questions Prepared Before the Visit
Asking specific questions that require a definitive response can lead to misinterpretations about your reading. Intuitives can identify trends and see possibilities based on the energy and life circumstances surrounding you at the time of the reading. However, outcomes are also the result of the choices we make, and one decision can change your trajectory.
Now that you know how to ask for guidance, it should be easier to prepare some questions beforehand. You may be grieving and concerned about someone who has passed, in which case what you’re seeking is peace of mind. Maybe you’re at a crossroads personally or professionally and looking for guidance. Take whatever your concern is, and pose it in the form of a question that seeks clarity or consolation. If it helps you remember, write your concerns down. Be prepared to take notes, also. You may want to have them for future reference or to gain clarity in a specific area. Taking notes will also help you to make sense of any information that seemed confusing at the time of your visit.
Keep Your Expectations Realistic
No matter how much you may want them, you may not get any cut-and-dried answers to your questions. Going in with an agenda or raised expectations will only lead to disappointment. Intuitive respond to energy, both yours and that coming from another realm. Any blocks or negativity may lead to lead to confusing or incomplete communications. If something doesn’t make sense, don’t be afraid to stop the reading momentarily and ask for clarification.
Don’t Try to Lead the Reading
You may feel like “testing” the mystic by asking a question you already know the answer to, by attempting to get a specific response regarding a loved one, or by asking leading questions in the hopes of getting a particular outcome or answer. You may even have a made a pact or agreement with a recently deceased loved one about a code or word that one or the other of you will use to verify communication from the other side. This goes hand-in-hand with bringing an agenda with you to your reading.
Let the mystic take the lead and try to be open to any information he or she passes on you. The answers may not come in the form that you expect, but they’ll often make sense as events unfold. Sometimes cryptic messages lead to eureka moments when you least expect them.
You Need to Keep an Open Mind
This is one of the most important things you can do. It’s normal to be a little skeptical, especially if this is your first experience with a mystic. However, if you go in with negativity, if you have preconceived notions, or you’re just a non-believer who’s looking for proof of one’s abilities, you’re not going to gain much from the experience. When you arrive with the right mindset, good energy, and an open mind, your visit will be productive even if you didn’t get the answers you were hoping to hear. You’ll also enjoy the experience a lot more.
Try to Maintain Positive Energy
In the end, a mystic consultation is all about energy. Coming in with good energy, a positive attitude, and an open mind will help your adviser tune in to what’s going on with you and open up the channels of communication through all realms. Your good energy and active participation will also add enthusiasm and establish the basis for a productive session.
Whether you’re a true believer in mysticism or a little skeptical, you need to keep an open mind throughout your session. Even if it’s your first reading, your first consultation with that particular medium or you’ve had multiple sessions. Each is a unique experience. Following the above guidelines will allow you and your mystic adviser to maintain an excellent spiritual connection.
