So, you bit the bullet and scheduled an online psychic reading – good for you!
There is a stigma around that kind of reading that a lot of people struggle with. Simply put, psychic chat sites have gotten a pretty bad rap, right? Even I struggled with it during my first online reading!
Of course the truth of the matter is that online psychic readings can be super helpful and you seeking them out means you’re open minded!
So before we go any further, NO, choosing to chat with an online psychic definitely does not make you a weirdo (quite the opposite, in fact). :)
Now that that’s cleared up – let’s chat about the best things for you to do before and after your online psychic reading!
Before Your Reading
Find the psychic, medium, or tarot card reader
This is one of the most important steps, y’all. While there are some great psychics online, there are also some phonies. (Don’t worry, I have an entire series about how to avoid psychic scams here.)
As far as online psychics go, I LOVE Oranum. (affiliate) To me, they are the perfect marriage of some of the lowest prices around and TRUST.
Set your intention
Something pushed you to get an intuitive reading, right? Maybe you’re feeling stuck. Or maybe you’re at a crossroads…
Maybe you’re hoping to connect with a departed loved one!
Whatever the case is, set your intention and hold onto it as you go into the reading.
If you have no idea what your intention should be, simply set the intention that the reading is for your highest and best good.
Know what NOT to ask
Ready to be mind blown?…
From my experience with my own clients, readings that focus solely on learning the future tend to be the least helpful. They are just not empowering at ALL. (If your curiosity is peaked, read my post, 4 Reasons You Shouldn’t Have a Prediction Reading).
Sooooo… avoid questions like:
- Where am I going to be living in 4 years?
- How many kids am I going to have? (the answer is… drumroll please… as many as you want!)
Remember: A reading is the most powerful when it offers you insight. Insight can lead to an “Aha” moment, which empowers you AND puts things into perspective.
Open your mind
Okay, so you’ve found a psychic (p.s. check out how to tell if a psychic is fake in 2 seconds!), and you’ve set your intention.
Now it’s time to relax and open your mind. Let go of negative thoughts and doubts, and focus on being receptive to where the reading goes.
If you need to, take a few deep breaths before your online psychic reading – or listen to some music that you love!
Take care of your biological needs
Before your online psychic reading, eat a healthy snack (or chocolate, we don’t judge here!), use the restroom, and make sure you have water handy.
It makes it much easier to focus if your stomach isn’t growling! Also, having your needs met will banish subconscious worry and anxiety from your mind.
Have a pen and paper handy
Whenever I get a psychic, tarot, or mediumship reading, I tell myself that I’m going to remember everything and then… I don’t.
So grab a piece of paper and a pen (preferably a glittery one – because life is more fun with glitter) and be sure to take notes during your reading. If something doesn’t make sense right now, it might later.
After Your Online Psychic Reading
Pause and reflect
Before you hop up and get back to day-to-day activities, keep your phone on silent (I know, I know!) and reflect on your reading!
How are you feeling?
How do you feel compared to when you went into the reading?
It’s possible you will have increased clarity about a subject that’s been on your mind for a long time – take advantage of that!
If you have a habit of journaling (and you should – it’s awesome!) take this time to journal about your experience! Ask yourself:
- What parts of your reading did you like?
- Were there parts of your reading that didn’t resonate with you?
- Did you come to any conclusions or decisions?
Use some grounding practices (eat root veggies, take a bath with essential oils, or connect with nature) to make sure you’re feeling solid before you get back into your day.
There are a bunch of ways to ground yourself in this post. I’m sure you’ll find something that will work for you :)
Make positive changes
Now that you’ve gotten some clarity about what path you’re supposed to be on, make positive changes to get there! Apply what came to you during the reading to your life.
An online psychic reading can be amazing because you have all the convenience of traditional reading, but you can be in your PJ’s drinking a cup of tea!
Just be sure to do your due diligence and get educated about who you’re receiving a reading from. Again, our most trusted resource is Oranum (affiliate link). Once your online psychic reading is over, be sure to pause and reflect before you hop back into your life.
