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.

Top Ten Types of Psychic Readings You Can Get in Boston

 

Mediumship readings, talking to your loved ones on the Other Side, top the list of the most popular psychic readings. Psychic intuitive sessions, reading a person’s or people’s energy field(s), is the second most popular. As I’ve said in previous blog posts, there’s a big difference between psychic medium readings and psychic intuitive readings, and you need to know what type of reading you want, so you book the right psychic. Did you know there are also other types of readings? Here are ten popular types of psychic readings in the metro Boston area.. The list below is not in any particular order. 

Fortune Telling – fortune telling dates back to the earliest civilisations. Anthropologists have found some form of divination in every culture. Today, predicting the future is considered fortune-telling. Surprisingly, not all psychics believe you can predict the future. Reading tea leaves and regular playing cards among other techniques are considered fortune-telling.

Tarot Card Readings – Tarot cards go back to the 14th century. Later they became a board game for the Italian royalty. In the past, tarot cards have been synonymous with fortune telling, but today, many different types of readers use tarot cards. Some people prefer readings with tarot cards because it feels less invasive. I still use tarot cards because the color of the cards stimulates my psychic ability.

Psychic Intuitive Sessions – These readings are usually spiritually based. The intuitive reads the energy of the person in front of them and people, places and things on the earth plane. Information about that client’s pas, present and future are contained in that client’s aura or energy field.

Angel Card Readings – Angel Card readings are similar to psychic intuitive readings except that the reader uses a special angel deck and calls on the angelic realm for divine guidance.

Psychic MediumshipThese readings are specifically about talking to a client’s loved one’s who have died. The medium is not tapping into the energy in that person’s aura. You can’t choose which spirit will show up though they should be familiar to you so you can verify details that the medium gives you.Sometimes, you may hear from an unwanted spirit. Mediumship readings are especially helpful if someone is bereaved. Hearing from their loved ones and knowing they’re okay can be healing.

Group Readings – Group readings are usually conducted by a psychic medium with 3 or more people in the room at the same time. The medium tries to bring through spirits for as many people as they can during the time allotted. Not everyone is guaranteed a reading. These group readings are like the old Victorian séances, except that today the lights are on, and there are no theatrics.

Demonstrations – Demonstrations or “Dems” are large group readings where they may be hundreds or thousands of people in the room. Demonstrations are conducted by one or more mediums. The medium attempts to bring through spirits for as many audience members as possible during the allotted time.

Astrology – these readings reflect where the planets were in the sky on the day someone was born and how the movement of the planets today affects them now. Astrology readings are good for timing, relocation and compatibility among many other things. These readings can tell you which aspect of your life is most impacted by the planetary lineup today and for the year ahead.

Palmistry – Palmistry, like astrology is one of the most scientific types of psychic readings. Everyone’s hands have the same significant lines such as the headline, heartline and lifeline. These lines are deeply carved into the hand, or frayed and broken. It is significant if there is an absence of one of these major lines. You can read someone’s health in their hands

Numerology – Numerology is based on numbers having a mystical meaning. Your birthdate, your birth name and the name you use today, all translate into a specific unique number that describes your personality and your life purpose.

 

 

 

Five Ground Rules For Getting a Good Psychic Reading in Boston

 

Here are some basic ground rules for getting a good psychic reading in Boston. 

1) Don’t drink or get high before your reading. It’s hard to do this if you’re in a group setting but alcohol and pot distort your energy and muddies the information. Wait until after your reading for a cocktail. If you’re at a party, wait until after you’ve had your reading before your imbibe.

2) It’s okay to be a skeptic but if you act like you know everything about how it works, you can ruin your reading.(Even psychics don’t know how it works)  Playing “stump the psychic” usually just wastes time during your session. Hopefully, you’ve already researched your psychic and know that they’re honest. Don’t tell the psychic too much. Believe it or not, a lot of psychics are skeptics too, even though they do this for a living.

3) Do not allow yourself to become dependent on a psychic. You have to make your decisions. Only you can live your life. Limit how often you go in for a reading unless you’re in crisis or have a practical need for them such as using intuition for business.

4) You are always 100% responsible for whatever decisions you make after your reading. If you’re using information from your reading to make a decision, you need to use the psychic information from your reading as another point of reference. 

5) You have free will. The future is dynamic. I always tell people the future is a moving target. The decisions you make every day are either subtly or dramatically changing your future. Some things are fated and some things you have no control over. There are a lot of things you do have control over so focus on where you have power over your future.

5 Things To Know To Find The Right Psychic In Boston For You

The psychic industry has come a long way since the old stereotypical fortune-telling days. Today, seers have access to thousands of serious metaphysical books, and professional psychic schools where they can earn advanced degrees in mediumship and intuition. Psychics today have a wide range of backgrounds and training.. Here are five things to know and ways to find the right psychic in Boston for you.

1) Know a little bit about the different specialties. There are two main categories. Psychic mediums talk to dead. Psychic intuitives provide insights into situations you’re facing or decisions you need to make. Most psychic mediums can do both psychic readings (spiritual counseling) and mediumship. All mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums.

2) If you’re going to a medium, you’re primarily going to hear from the Other Side. Mediumship readings are especially helpful if you are grieving and connecting with your loved one in spirit might help bring you closure and peace. There is no guarantee, however, which spirits will show up. Mediumship sessions are meant to be healing.

3) Know why you want to get a reading today. Is this your first time and you’re just curious? You should be able to have a great experience with either type of psychic but if you go to a psychic intuitive that doesn’t talk to the dead, you’ll be disappointed if that’s what you’re expecting. If you’re only going for entertainment purposes unless it’s a party venue, or demonstration, you’re taking a chance. Psychic mediums and psychic intuitives take their work very seriously especially in one on one sessions and small group settings.

4) In mediumship readings, you can’t interact with the spirit and ask questions. In psychic intuitive sessions, most of the time, you do get to ask questions. Information from a mediumship reading comes from a spirit. Information in a psychic intuitive reading comes from the energy field of the person being read and the earth plane. Most readers will not combine the two different types of readings in one session because they require different skills. 

5) Most of the time you’ll pay a higher price for a session with an experienced and well-trained psychic. It may sound logical that you have to pay more, but you’d be surprised how many people think that psychic ability is a magical power that doesn’t require experience and training. It takes time for a psychic to understand how their gifts work. The more training a psychic has had, and the more time they’ve invested in giving readings, the better they are.

If you’ve picked out a psychic or received a referral and still aren’t sure if you have the right psychic for you – read through the testimonials on his or her website. The testimonials can help you clarify the type of reading you can expect to get with that psychic. You can also call and ask them further questions after you’ve read through what is available about them on their website.

Ten Things I’ve Learned By Being A Psychic in Boston

 

1) We have some of the best psychic training in the world within easy driving distance of Boston. Therefore, you can get a great reading with local psychics. If you want to get into this profession, you would do well to live in the metro Boston area.

2) We also have charlatans and scammers. Fortunately, they are in the minority and the police know who they are. Anytime a psychic says you have a curse, black cloud, or bad juju around you, and they can remove it for a price – run! Most people don’t want to admit if they were scammed by a psychic, though, you’ll do everyone a service if you report them. A couple of these shops popped up in the North End but didn’t last very long.

3) Many excellent mediums live in the Boston area too. Some of the faculty at Arthur Findlay College, a Spiritualist college in England that specializes in mediumship training, teach and give readings in Boston. Many local Spiritualist churches also provide great mediumship training. Again, the metro Boston area is a great place to live if you want to get into this profession.

4) Boston is a tough city for psychics to give readings because Bostonians are savvy consumers due to the accessiblility of talented psychics, great metaphysical shops, and psychic events. 

5) If you want to have a good reading, before you say, “no” “no” “no,” keep an open mind, listen to what’s said and what it could mean. Then again, don’t make it fit, if it doesn’t fit. Psychics have a range of personalities and styles from wildly flamboyant to ultra conservative. You might be reacting to the psychic’s style rather than what they’re saying. If you’re not connecting after 10 minutes you need to stop the reading.

6) I’ve learned when I can’t connect, to check in and ask the client if it’s possible that they want a reading and don’t want a reading at the same time. It sounds like an odd question but it happens. It could be that person is not ready to hear the answer. It could be they’re afraid to hear the answer. It could be they’re going to reject the answer unless it’s what they think or want the answer should be.

7) I like neon signs with psychic symbols, like a hand, because I like kitsch. However, it’s dicey to go to a shop with a neon sign in the window. Look for other indications that the store is legitimate and professional before you get a reading and by all means go in if you get a good gut feeling. i know a great shop that is very kitschy and the psychics are well trained and good at what they do. So, there are exceptions.

8) In general, parking is at a premium in Boston, so if your appointment is in the city, give yourself plenty of time to park if you’re driving. You should find out the lay of the land ahed of time so you’re not late and have 10 minutes to spare to relax and so you can start your reading feeling calm and ready.

9) Many local psychics know and like each other and have cross-trained with each other at different psychic shops. There are a lot of professional people from other industries who moonlight as psychics in their spare time. Everyone is psychic, so if they’re interested, anyone can get the training to give a psychic reading. A psychic needs a lot of practice reading people to understand their unique intuitive language and symbols.  To apply for a job as a psychic you usually have to read for the owner of the establishment to see if you pass the muster.

10) There are different psychic specialties and not every psychic offer every specialty. Know what you’re looking for when you choose a psychic. This especially applies to spirit communication. Not every psychic talks to the dead.
