When you imagine getting a psychic reading, you probably think of the “psychics” at British seaside resorts or con artists who pose as professionals to steal your money.
But don’t let the dark side of the industry put you off. There are thousands of trained, skilled and gifted psychics who can gift you with one of the most enjoyable, eye-opening experiences of your life – simply by making a psychic reading.
What is a psychic reading?
If you’re considering getting a psychic reading, but you’re a little sceptical, you may be lacking knowledge about what actually happens in such a session.
For a start, there are many different types of psychics, and not all of them gaze into a crystal ball or read tarot cards. Some psychics do this, yes, but it’s best to check with a specific professional what they offer beforehand if you want to be sure.
You can receive a reading online or over the phone, but most people prefer to visit a psychic in person for the most immersive experience. Common psychic reading techniques involve reading tea leaves or tarot cards, observing horoscopes or runes, and using crystal balls or a specific object of meaning (such as an item of jewellery from a loved one).
Psychic readings can last for as little as 10 minutes and as long as several hours.
The Types of Psychic Reading
It’s a good idea to have a specific purpose in mind when you’re looking to book a psychic reading. There are many different types of psychic reading available, and knowing what you want will help you to pick the one that’s most likely to change your life.
Some of the common types of psychic reading include:
Tarot readings are some of the most popular offerings today. In a session that uses tarot cards, a psychic will ask a question and draw from a deck of tarot cards. The psychic will then interpret the meaning of the card or cards, which are often related to a person’s present or future life. Though some people regard tarot card readings as fortune-telling, psychics believe that they can simply offer spiritual guidance on things that may not always be obvious to the participant.
Astrology is the concept that there is a relationship between the placement of the stars and the planets around the earth and the things that happen to humans at certain points in life. Specifically, astrology looks at the position of the moon, stars, sun, and planets when a person was born, and how this may have shaped their life so far – and how it will continue to shape the future. A psychic can use astrology to gather information about the past, present, and future, and will be able to tell you specific answers about your family relationships, love life, a new job or career prospects, based on information from your birth chart.
Another popular psychic reading method is palm reading. In a palm reading session, a psychic will study the lines, curves, and shapes on your palm and use them to tell your future. Palm readings tend not to require a psychic expert, as they just need a “cold read” rather than intuition. Still, with this kind of reading, you can expect to receive answers about a specific relationship or something you might want or not want in the future, relating to a love interest, a job, a health problem, friends, or certain family members.
Some psychics have the ability to read auras – that is, the luminous fields of energy that surround people at all times. On a basic level, examining someone’s aura can determine their current mood, but professional psychics know how to carry out aura readings that can offer guidance that might just change your life, whether that’s your love life, relationships with friends and family, your work situation, or something that’s specifically bothering you.
The Transformational Benefits of a Psychic Reading
So, can a psychic reading change your life? For lots of people, yes: a psychic reading can change their perspectives in ways they never could have imagined. Some of the life-changing benefits of an intuitive reading from a psychic include:
Psychics Are Able To Make You Feel Better
Visiting a psychic when you’re discouraged can help you to make sense of a certain circumstance and determine what you really need to do to make it better. If your love life is on the rocks, for example, a psychic can help you to get to know the best steps to take to find peace and love once more.
Psychics Will Prepare You For The Future
Psychics don’t technically have the ability to change your life with their predictions. But they can help you be better prepared for the things, people and opportunities that may come in your direction. A psychic might use their intuition to see a misfortune on the horizon, for example, and can help you to make a battle plan to get over the hurdle.
Online Psychics Will Put You At Ease
You might feel you need to visit a psychic in a confusing time of your life, whether you’re dealing with work problems, you’re going through a rough time with somebody you love, or your health has taken a turn for the worst. A psychic can help you to get to the bottom of the overwhelming thoughts and questions you might have, so you’re able to feel completely at ease and clear your brain.
Use A Medium To Help You Move On
You can use a psychic’s intuition to help you see past events in a new way. Many people have life trauma that they need to come to terms with, and a psychic can support you in making peace with the thoughts that invade your mind and help you to move in a new direction, letting go of the negativity in your mind as you find your way in the world again.
Find Your Purpose
Jealous of those people who seem to “just know” the right path for them in life? Here’s the truth: whether they seem to have all the career, relationship or financial success or not, those people are probably winging it as much as you are. Or perhaps they visited a psychic, who helped them to get on the one-way train towards self-discovery. A psychic can see things that you might not know about yourself, and they can help you to find your purpose by shedding light on your future.
Psychics Help You Remain Positive
Most of us spend at least one day a week battling to see the positive side of life. We don’t need to feign positivity all the time – but it would be nice to feel genuinely optimistic, of course. If you feel like you’ll never make it through the darkness to see the light, a psychic can get you back on the right track. You’ll have the opportunity to think about how your own behaviours or the things you said in a certain situation might have affected your current situation, and how you’ll be able to reverse this going forward.
How Is A Reading Carried Out?
The exact timeline of your meeting with a reader depends on what type of reading you’ve opted for. Usually, however, a psychic will ask questions about your life to determine which areas you’d like to focus on most – perhaps your love life, job, a family relationship, and so on. It’s okay if you’re feeling a little lost – you’re free to tell your reader to look at all areas of your life equally.
Your psychic will use their intuition, in whatever form it presents itself, to perform your reading. They might choose a card and discuss how it applies to your current situation, or examine your palm or birth chart and do the same.
At this point, your reader will probably ask more questions to get to know your situation on a deeper level. This will help them to understand how your love life, relationship with family, or any other aspect of your life is related to their reading.
After your session is up, simply return home and behave as you usually would, regardless of what has been said, and allow your future to unravel naturally.
How To Get Started
If you’re keen to access the answers that only a psychic can offer, you’re probably curious about how to book a reading.
It’s best not to choose the first psychic you come across. Do your research online and ask questions – you’re free to be curious – and you will probably find a whole host of psychics who have a better personal appeal than the first.
Remember to look for someone who can offer the best experience for your personal needs. If you’re looking specifically for career advice, for example, you might find someone who specializes in that alone, and you’d be better going there than to a reader who solely has experience in relationship readings.
Professional psychics will always do as much as they can to put their customers at ease, understanding that the need for knowledge can often feel quite vulnerable.
