Many people, especially those new to the psychic field, wonder how they should go about preparing for a psychic session. While many psychic readers are eager to book an appointment, few professionals take the time to explain the right procedure for receiving a psychic reading. Here are several tips to follow to help you prepare for your session.
Relax Before the Session
If a psychic is going to connect with a you, then you must be in a relaxed state. Several professional psychic readers will help or recommend that their clients perform a short meditation, progressive relaxation, or prayer before a session begins.
When a psychic connects they are working primarily with the energy of their client. If that energy is chaotic, stressed out, or in a panic, those feelings may interfere with a psychic’s ability to accurately receive information. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but as a generality this is true.
Likewise, if a client could take the time to do a progressive relaxation or even to mediate prior to a psychic reading it will help the energies within the room to be more calm, relaxed, and at ease. This may very well help create a more positive environment for spirit guides and angels.
Be Open Minded
When a psychic is connecting in a session they may not be “right on” about everything. That doesn’t mean they aren’t close and it doesn’t mean that the information may not be important at some point in the future. You don’t have to volunteer information to a reader, but you do need to be open minded enough to register what is being said.
The job of any psychic is to pass along information they receive. Recognize that your reader is a human being and will sometimes make mistakes in the interpretation of the information they receive. The information may be very correct, but they may be interpreting it incorrectly.
Most professionals in the psychic field do encourage open minded skepticism as this keeps a client from blindly following everything they hear. Psychic advice should be taken as food for thought and not law. Understanding and avoiding psychic fraud and how it is different from a real psychic session is important.
Learn to Listen
During a session, unless a direct question is asked, it’s best to not say anything. A professional psychic, unless performing a spiritual counseling session, shouldn’t be asking many questions. Sometimes, a few questions can help keep the reader on track. Too many questions and a client will feel as though the reader is fishing for information and performing cold reading techniques.
Sit with the arms and legs uncrossed, as crossing the arms and legs is a defensive body posture that can shut a psychic down before the session even begins. This shut down can happen either literally, because the energy is being blocked, or because the reader is registering the defensiveness unconsciously.
At All Times Be Honest
It’s also important to be truthful during a session. Being open minded is not the same as lying or accepting everything as fact. It’s okay to indicate that the information isn’t making sense right now or that it would be helpful to have more information.
Try to avoid directly saying the word “No” when possible. “No” carries such a strong negative vibration for so many people that most psychics aren’t sure how to handle it when a client utters that word. For many professional psychics, to them it feels like you are slamming a door in their face.
Record the Information of the Reading
Always write down information that is said during a session. If possible, use a recorder to tape it. Most people have a short attention span and difficulty remembering. These clients won’t remember many of the things which are said or discussed during a psychic session. The problem is, most psychics are distant future predictors. This means that the majority of professional readers are doing future oriented readings and see five, sometimes ten years or more into the future. There’s almost no way to measure accuracy without keeping notes.
It’s always nice when those future oriented readers can keep things to a few months or a few years. Even then, having a record of the session is important as it allows a client to refer back to what is said. Additionally, if a client decides to see multiple psychics, they then have a way to measure which information seems to be most consistent for them.
Ask Good Questions During the Session
Finally, our discussion on preparing for a psychic session wouldn’t be complete without discussing the importance of asking good questions.
Asking good questions can really help to keep the session focused and on track. The more focused the client, the more focused the psychic and their reading. Good questions generally are specific and open ended.
- Try “What if” questions. They allow the reader to make the most of their gifts.
- Avoid timing questions unless it’s specific. It’s better to ask “Will the house sell within three months?” as opposed to “Will the house ever sell?”
- You shouldn’t ask “yes/no” questions unless you really want to hear the answer.
- Asking private information about another person is unethical and is best avoided. It’s okay to ask “What are my boyfriend’s intentions?” It’s not okay to ask “What is the name of the girl he’s cheating on me with?”
- It’s always okay to ask for the best way to avoid problems and pitfalls
Now that the tips for how to get a reading have been revealed, it’s time to stop letting fear get in the way of receiving one. Not only could the session be fun, but something important just may be learned.
