What it’s like for a psychic intuitive or psychic medium to give a reading

     

Some people still think that psychics are frauds, research you ahead of time, or are just good guessers. To dispel these myths about psychics, I thought I’d describe my psychic reading process so you can have an insider’s point of view.

Please note that I’m only describing my process. Every psychic gets their information differently so their process may be different than mine. It’s similar in the way that one artist’s creative process is different from another artist’s creative process.

Truthfully, I’m usually nervous before I read for a client. I’m less nervous if I’ve read for that person before because I know they connect with my style which is a little different. I worry that new clients may be expecting the stereotypical fortune-teller. When people come to a psychic they think their life is an open book and their future is fixed and knowable. I don’t believe that you can predict the future with a high degree of accuracy because the future is dynamic. The future changes all the time because everyone has free will to change their mind. When you change your mind, you change your future. 

I read from my living room with my client sitting next to me. After he or she has pulled tarot cards for the reading, I hold both their hands in my hands. I do this to establish a multisensory connection with them. As I hold their hands, I hear sounds, see images, and get feelings and knowings. I also give readings over the phone which for me are exactly that same as if that person is sitting next to me.

When I’m reading, I’m open and receptive to anything that might come through no matter how odd it might be. There are no words to adequately describe what it’s like. You have to have it yourself to know what it’s really like. It’s different from thinking thoughts or feeling emotions.

My intuitive pops come one after another. The images I receive are subtle, translucent, and disappear right after I notice them. The information I hear comes in quietly. Intuitive feelings linger until I describe what I’m feeling. If I can’t quite hear the information – it’s usually because the client is likely to resist what I’m telling them.

If I’m getting information clairsentiently, like the emotion of joy or fear, I feel it throughout my body. Having given so many readings my clairsentience is finely tuned. I feel subtle nuances. The feeling of anxiety is different than depression and fear seems different than terror or rage.

Frequently people ask me if giving readings is exhausting. Personally, I don’t get tired unless it’s a difficult reading. I do go into an altered state so I can get spaced-out. After a reading I may need to eat something or reground myself. I find if someone comes to their reading exhausted or sleep deprived, I get sleepy and can hardly stay awake for the reading.

 In our training, we’re told to, “give what we get.” This means to describe the information we’re getting through our senses but not to interpret the meaning of that information. The problem being the psychic may misinterpret what they’re getting. Describing what you’re seeing, hearing, feeling, knowing, smelling or tasting is the best way for the client to recognize what the psychic is talking about.

 I hope this post is helpful to you. Hopefully, it dispels the idea that psychics just make everything up. If you have other questions, send them to me using the Contact Us form on my website. Please feel free to suggest other topics as well.

    I think one of the keys to getting an accurate reading is to be honest and open-minded with the psychic. If you go into a reading close-minded or skeptical, then I don’t think you’re going to get the most out of your reading. Another tip – is to write down questions you want to ask the psychic before your reading so you’re prepared and don’t forget to ask a question that’s been burning in your mind.

      Stephanie – you are spot on with both points you make. When someone comes in with certain expectations out what the psychic must say, they’re being linear. I agee also that you should always come prepared knowing when you walk out the door – what questions do you want to make sure you’ve asked. Thanks for your comments! Warmly, MaryLee
