A psychic reading can be a very powerful, exciting, and life-changing experience. However, getting your first psychic reading can be an intimidating process, especially if you don’t know what to expect or how to prepare.
In order to ensure a successful reading, preparation is vital. Preparing before your session starts will help you relax, keep your energy positive, and open your mind to new possibilities. Here are 9 simple steps to help you prepare for a psychic reading.
1. Find The Right Psychic
To have a fulfilling experience, it’s important to choose a psychic medium you vibe with and can trust from the start. The best psychic readings come from collaborations between you and your psychic medium when you work together to uncover and interpret messages about your life.
Take your time exploring different psychics to learn more about their background and their specialties, and choose someone who understands your intentions. For instance, if you know you want to learn more about a loved one that has passed, don’t choose a psychic medium whose expertise is relationships. Websites, blogs, and social media channels can help you discover more about a psychic’s personality and focus.
You should also read testimonials to see what other people have to say about their experiences with the psychic medium. These reviews will allow you to get a better sense of how the psychic conducts their psychic readings and interacts with their clients. Of course, if you have friends or acquaintances who see a psychic, you can ask for recommendations from them.
Finally, you can reach out to a psychic medium you’re considering for an introductory conversation. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about what they do, how they conduct a psychic reading and any concerns you may have. They’ll be happy to answer, so you feel more comfortable going into your reading.
2. Decide Which Type of Psychic Reading Format You Want
Remote readings conducted over the phone, through a video call, or over chat are just as effective as in-person readings. Decide which type of format you feel most comfortable with before you book your reading. The more comfortable you are, the more you’ll be able to benefit from the experience.
Video calls offer the most intimate type of session, providing a visual connection between you and your psychic medium. Phone readings and online chat sessions still provide instant communication and may make you more comfortable by eliminating the stress of appearing visually. The method of communication won’t affect your psychic’s ability, so pick the reading format that works for you.
3. Meditate Beforehand to Clear Your Mind
Prepare for a psychic reading with a clear, relaxed mind. One of the best ways to clear your mind is to engage in thoughtful meditation. Whether you choose to use a guided meditation or a less structured method is up to your personal preference. Either way, meditating allows you to focus on the issues at hand, and better prepare you to focus on your session.
You may also find it helpful to do some light physical activity like simple yoga poses or taking a brisk walk after your meditation. This activity will help get your energy flowing, clear your mind further, and put you in the right mindset for your psychic reading.
4. Prepare a List of Questions
When you prepare for your reading, take time to contemplate the areas of your life where you want insight and advice. You can prepare by having two or three specific questions regarding these areas will help to guide the session in a direction that will be helpful for you.
For the best results, try to stay away from questions that lend themselves to yes or no answers. For example, asking whether or not you’ll find a new job within the next year will get you a closed answer that doesn’t provide much insight or guidance. But if you ask what changes you can make in your life to find and secure a new job that you’ll love, you’ll open up the conversation and invite an answer that provides valuable information you can use to act.
If the answers to your questions prompt new questions and thoughts, make sure to share them with your psychic reader. Uncertainty is a natural part of the process, and unexpected thoughts or reactions can lead the conversation down a new, meaningful path.
5. Remain Open to New Possibilities
While you should have an idea of the direction you’d like your psychic reading to take, it’s equally important to remain open to any new possibilities that might come up throughout your session. It’s normal for a psychic reading to explore multiple areas of your life and change direction.
Your psychic receives messages that need your attention. Ignoring these messages and forcing the session to focus on only one or two given topics can harm your overall experience and cause you to miss meaningful information.
6. Clear Your Area of Distractions
In order to prepare for a psychic reading, it’s important to be present throughout your session. Allow time to clear your physical area of anything that might distract you. With an endless list of possible distractions, you might want to try these steps:
- Close your curtains and windows to eliminate noisy or visual distractions from the outside world.
- Inform those who live with you that you can’t be disturbed for the next hour.
- Play background music or white noise in your space to cover unexpected sounds.
- Turn off your cell phone if you’re not using it for your meeting. If you are using it, put it in do not disturb mode, so you aren’t distracted by notifications during your session.
- Take care of any pressing tasks early in the day so they won’t weigh on your mind during your session.
7. Record Your Session or Take Notes
You’ll hear a lot of information during your psychic reading, and it’s nearly impossible to process and unpack all of it in real-time. Recording your session or taking notes allows you to revisit it at a later time to learn more and interpret messages in new ways. Many people find information that seemed incorrect or irrelevant at the time of their session was suddenly meaningful and applicable a couple of weeks later.
8. Don’t Try to “Trick” Your Psychic Medium
Some people feel the need to trick their psychic medium or make the psychic prove themselves. Tricks will only take away from your experience and hurt your chances of learning any meaningful information during your session.
While it’s natural to be skeptical of things you don’t fully understand, make sure you try your best to leave these thoughts behind. Allowing yourself to believe in the spiritual messages you receive will let you to benefit from them in a meaningful way.
9. Allow Time for Reflection After Your Session
Don’t rush into another activity after your psychic reading is over. Instead, relax and reflect on the messages you received. Make sure not to over-analyze every word, but think about the big picture as you come back to your everyday routine. When you take steps to open your mind, trust your psychic, focus your intentions, and stay present through your psychic reading, you can learn valuable information that will help you improve your life and relationships.
