Going to a psychic reading is an intriguing idea even for the more sceptical among us, but how can you prepare yourself for the experience?
If you feel called to try a reading, the first thing to do is work out your intention. What is it you hope to get from your reading? Possessing a solid answer to this question is essential as everything else will follow from there.
Why you want to have a reading will determine what type of reading is best for you, so a great place to start is with a little a self-investigation. Understanding your motives may change who you want to see, you might have planned to visit a tarot specialist but upon reflection, realise it would be better work with past life analysis or have a spiritual reading.
Journaling or writing is an excellent tool for crystalising your intention.
If you are pursuing answers to a particularly sensitive topic putting your purpose down on paper can help you later to stay on point during the reading.
The more clarity you have, the better the reading will go as it’s easier for your medium to read your energy after it’s been adequately focused.
Here are some questions to spend time with before going to your reading,
Even if you’re sceptical about going to a reading, you must be open minded because the energy you bring to the table will affect the quality of the process. Try to be relaxed and above all, honest.
Before you go, take a moment to manage your expectations. Mediums work with the energy that’s available to them so you might not get the outcome you anticipated. It’s best to remain open and flexible to unforeseen insights.
You can work with affirmations beforehand to prepare yourself spiritually and emotionally.
An affirmation you might work with is; I am loved safe and supported by the universe. I open myself to receive whatever comes. There is a divine plan of goodness for me.
Measure twice cut once is an old proverb used by carpenters to share an age-old piece of wisdom. Taking care in preparation will prevent mistakes in the future. When it comes to psychic readings, this advice is particularly true.
Before you get a reading invest time into researching different psychics. Most often the best reference is word of mouth, as many good mediums don’t advertise online. You should know before going in exactly what the reading offers and what device is employed. Are they using tarot cards or channelling? What is involved in the process, and will you need to bring anything?
Don’t feel you have to jump on the first psychic you see, especially if you are looking for one online. Verify the medium’s credibility by checking out reviews, any books or writing they may have published or by reaching out directly. Ensure they have a money-back guarantee for dissatisfied clients.
If you are unsure about making the booking call ahead to confirm if they are a good fit, and their values align with yours.
So you have set your intention, found the perfect medium to work with and have made your booking. What are some things you can do to get ready for the experience?
The best way to optimise your session is to enter with a clear calm mind. Try not to drink too much the night before and get plenty of sleep. Focused energy will be easier to interpret so if your head is racing with questions or nerves use calming techniques like meditation or yoga to put you in the right space.
During the reading, remember to balance what you talk about, you don’t need to overshare details, a skilled psychic will know how to pick up the answers. Make sure that what you receive resonates with you they shouldn’t make you feel anxious. Mediums are here to provide support, strength and guidance.
Don’t be shy about taking your questions in with you they will serve as an anchor throughout the process.
Whether it’s tarot, regression or channelling, spiritual readings are an exciting experience. Through them, we’re able to glimpse divine realms, connect to our higher consciousness and heal or transform. Take a notebook with you to write down your immediate impressions once the session is over. There can be an overwhelming amount of information and emotional energy during the reading, so it’s best to get down what you remember immediately after.
Later, when you feel centred objectively review your notes to see if there are any new insights you may have missed but trust your instincts. You don’t have to act on everything you learned and shouldn’t focus on replication. The reading is a fantastic guide, but it’s not intended to be taken as gospel.
It’s not advisable to rush into your next reading, recommended waiting time is 6-12 months. Waiting helps you to avoid creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Readings provide a wonderful opportunity to grow or heal using a holistic practice for spiritual insight. The main things to remember when you take this path is to know your intention, be open-minded, relaxed, honest and work with someone you trust.
