Dynamics of Your Psychic Reading
Since each reader works slightly differently, perhaps the following background information would maximize your experience.
One of the ways most psychic advisors tune in is by the client's birth date, as well as those of other involved parties--friends, family, business associates, and romantic partners. Birth dates are
used not only for psychic/intuitive readings, but also for astrology charts, numerology, and with other forms of divination in a session. The birth date forms the basis of one's karmic plan on this
earth. It does not dictate anything, but it is a method of tuning in by the reader.
Just like the use of first names only is quite acceptable, a birth date provided to a reader doesn't need to have the year included. A client's comfort level during the reading and confidentiality
afterwards is to be respected and maintained at all times. Every client has different privacy and comfort levels to honor.
Before all our modern technology became widespread, readings were generally in-person sessions where a reader and client were in close physical proximity (either sitting facing each other
directly or next to one another at a table at a reader's home or office, or at a metaphysical store or a psychic fair). The client's actual physical presence aided a reader as their higher
selves connected on a soul level. Plus there were always visual and audible connections, and sometimes handwriting samples, photographs, and personal items to tune in.
Additionally, of course, there were the Tarot cards (another inspirational divination tool), which would first be handled by the client, shuffled many times, cut into three piles, and restacked before
the reader began the card layout. Usually, a reader would begin with a preliminary meditation asking that information be revealed for the client's highest good (and not just what the client wanted
Now that readings are done primarily by electronic means (phone, chat, or e-mail sessions) without the physical presence of the client or the ability for the client to handle the Tarot cards,
readers often tune in with the assistance of spirit. Spirit doesn't communicate always the way we generally do or would like.
Sometimes spirit communicates in a very quick manner with the reader trying to keep up with information being transmitted, sometimes the reader is shown pictures or images in his/her mind's
eye, and sometimes spirit is progressing methodically and consistently dispensing information, but not always. Each session varies, just like each spirit guide and reader work differently.
A reader attuned to spirit is actually receiving this information in a passive manner and then actively transmits it to the client. During the receiving process, which is more of an art or a "gift" than
a science, the spiritual channel is open and information flows primarily from spirit guide > to reader > to client.
A reader may seem to be halting when "listening" to spirit because words are not visually in front of the reader, but are often sensed. Sometimes a reader's voice changes in tone, pitch, or
speed if the spirit guide is speaking through the reader (generally with the reader's permission).
Occasionally, a reader will hear or sense a word (or phrase) slightly differently than spirit intended and will seem to wonder aloud, instead of being silent, what was that word (or phrase). This is
normal for a reader and helps the client realize that messages are in the process of being transmitted and received.
It's always best if a reader then transmits the word (or phrase) exactly as received so the client can hear it too. Most readers often will interpret (translate) these words that they literally receive
(transliterate) so that a message is fine-tuned to the client as the reading progresses.
A reader is a bearer of a message, not a creator of it. An interpretation is often given to make the message more individualized and meaningful to the client. But any interpretation is subject to
error by the reader, or acceptance or rejection by the client.
No reader is 100% accurate despite what is claimed, and no session will leave a client without further thoughts and questions being generated on his/her issues. Messages from spirit (A) > plus
reader's interpretation (B) > lead to client's further thoughts and questions (C). Sometimes there are simple answers to complex situations, but generally there is a directed pathway to follow
during your life's journey.
I hope understanding these dynamics assists you to have a positive and productive experience in your readings.
