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.

Holiday Wellness Strategies

I know you’re already in the thick of things when it comes to the holidays. Did you know that there are approximately 41 days every year from the beginning of Thanksgiving week to January 1st, the end of the holiday season? It’s a fun and festive time and it can be stressful. Even our furry friends get bluesy.

Since we’re only half way through the season, now would be a good time to checkin with yourself. If you haven’t put wellness strategies in place STOP and consider doing this now. Maybe you’re enjoying yourself and sailing through the holiday season with bells on. In that case, wellness strategies are important to maintain your happiness. You might, however, be struggling with the down side of the holidays- anxiety and depression. You may be grieving. Many people feel sad during the holidays. In that case, wellness strategies are important to manage your moods and to push you to be with people and do activities that are uplifting.

The most important thing you can do to ensure your wellness during the holiday season is to plan ahead. Focus on what really matters. Then, focus on you and what you need. Finally, focus on others. When you focus on self-care, you’re more available to others. You’re more mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually aware and you bring your best self to the party. You can be there for others when you’re there for yourself.

25 Ways To Find Joy And Balance During The Holidays

Restoring Faith To The Approaching Holidays

Hope and Peace in Response to Terrorism

 

Two weeks ago a Russian airliner exploded in the sky killing everyone on board. Over the weekend, gunmen and suicide bombers killed 129 and injured more than 375 people in Paris. Both incidents were well planned, coordinated acts of terrorism conducted by ISIS. As the world seems to be at war and under siege with these senseless violent acts by Islamic extremists, and the coalition’s response, what can you do as an individual citizen besides watching it play out on TV?

You CAN begin with the power of prayer. If there was ever a time to talk your talk and walk your walk, it’s now. It’s not the time to throw your hands up in despair and lose hope for peace. Instead of fear and panic, send love and healing to the families who’ve lost loved ones, those injured, countries who’ve lost citizens, and to heads of state as they respond to these vicious attacks.

You CAN meditate on peace and send powerful healing energy to all violent extremists to stop these unspeakable acts of terrorism. Ask the Universe to show you how you can be of service. Instead of angry thoughts – send out loving thoughts. If you believe that, “Thoughts are things,” send your prayers and visual images of positive solutions for a peaceful world as your response. Do not to just sit on the sidelines. Get involved in a spiritual and energetic way.

Love and light,
