A reading with a psychic or Intuitive you’ve never been to before can be a stressful experience. How do you know if they’re for real or full of baloney? And if they’re for real, what if they tell you something scary? What if you get a life sentence you’re not prepared for?
The first and most important thing to do before booking a session with anyone is to get feedback from other people in order to help you determine whether or not the person is legit and honest. If nobody you know personally has been to the psychic/intuitive you’re thinking of seeing, ask for testimonials or reviews. You can also ask to speak to the person first before committing to having a reading. Most importantly, trust your gut. If you get the feeling this person is right for you, go with it. If you feel doubt or fear in any way, wait a while.
The second thing to be aware of is that you, too, play a part in how the reading will go. The best reading I ever had in my entire life occurred when I had a very specific question in mind. It was a big question, but it was specific. I wasn’t even allowed to verbalize the question, so I’m glad I had it fixed so strongly in my mind, because the reader telepathically picked up on it and worked very hard to answer it, to my great relief.
Don’t go into a reading with an “I don’t care, let’s just see what comes up” attitude. Be specific. Now, that said, being specific does not necessarily mean you have to have a question. You can specifically want to know what the reader sees in your life overall, which is a great way to find out more about how you’re projecting your energies, as the reader will pick up on the things that are coming up with the most prevalence. Just don’t go in with a wishy-washy attitude. Have clarity.
The third way to get the most out of a reading is to be as open and understanding as possible. It is your duty as a seeker to understand the nature of psychic messages and imagery, and to play a part in interpreting the information that comes through. Try not to take every single thing that the psychic or intuitive says literally; if they, for example, see a knife in your heart chakra, know that this is obviously an energetic matter, and ask them to remove it; if they don’t do that sort of thing, ask them for tips on how you can do it yourself.
A friend of a friend despises psychics (and probably will for the rest of her life) because not one, but two of them saw a malformed baby around her/in her energy field. She was scared to death that this meant they were making a prediction about her future child. What she failed to realize was that they were seeing her Teratoma, a gigantic tumor with an eye, teeth, and hair that had grown in her pelvic region when she was a teenager. She had had this tumor successfully removed (in fact, the doctor asked to save it because it was the most remarkable specimen of its kind), but obviously it had such an impact on her life that the energetic residue of it was still there.
The last thing to remember is that the future is not set in stone. It is mutable and changeable. I once had a reading with none other than Sylvia Browne, and she saw me becoming successful with a certain arsy craftsy project I was working on at the time. I decided not to continue the project for various reasons, and therefore changed that outcome. So, if an Intuitive sees something that is good for your future, know that you do have to continue doing things in a certain way to make that materialize. The same goes for negative possibilities. If it comes up in a reading that you may have a heart problem down the line, stop eating all that bacon and get yourself to the gym. If an intuitive doesn’t see love in your future, don’t accept the notion that you’ll be alone forever! Ask them what to change to make it happen – should you join Match, try speed dating, or take up a new hobby?
They say the best readings confirm what you already know. Therefore, go into a reading with an open mind. Expect the best: expect to receive the very clearest, most helpful information you can use. Engage in the reading, and ask for clarity if things don’t make sense. And, know that just because someone sees something happening, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will. You can take steps to change something for the better, just as much as you can take steps to avoid going down a path that may at this point in time seem inevitable. Remember, it’s your life, and you do have control.
