10 Tips for a Powerful Psychic Reading
1. Prepare mentally
What’s on your mind that you want to ask a psychic? It’s a powerful question, and one that you should ask yourself. Here’s how…
The day before your psychic reading, take some time to think about the questions you want to ask. First, imagine connecting with your heart. Then, think about anything that is bothering you — or questions you want answers to.
This will help you get crystal clear about why you are having a reading, so you can get the answers you need.
Pro tip: If you are having a mediumship reading (to connect with spirit), this step is even more important. So, in your mind, imagine inviting your loved one in heaven to the reading. This simple intention is oh-so-powerful!
2. Be relaxed
It’s normal to be nervous before a reading. (I always ask new clients if they are nervous before we begin and 99% say yes!) But the truth is, it really helps the energy flow when you are relaxed during your reading.
So, if you find that you are a bundle of nerves, take a few minutes at the start of the reading and share that with the psychic. They will help you relax, explain how the session will work, and put you at ease.
Note About Nerves
It’s understandable to be nervous, especially if you have never had a reading before. And most times, you’ll relax a few minutes into the session. :)
But being nervous because you are afraid of something scary (like bad news or curses ) is not okay.
In fact, if you are afraid, you should ask yourself: do I have a funny vibe about this psychic? If you do, find a psychic that you are more comfortable with. And don’t worry! I’ve got tips that will help you find a trustworthy psychic or medium.
3. Ask insightful questions
When you ask questions that begin with why, how, or what, you really open the door to explore an issue in depth.
For example, someone might say, “Will I ever get married?” which can easily be answered yes or no.
Instead, consider asking something like:
- Why can’t I find a compatible partner?
- Why do I keep attracting the wrong guys?
- What steps can I take to connect with my soulmate?
See the difference? The second set of questions allow you to get major insight… and that means you will have a much more powerful psychic reading. Yay!
Even more exciting?
Sometimes, there are even past life connections that can be uncovered with these questions. Pretty cool, right?
If you’re not sure what to ask in a psychic reading, we’ve got you covered! Here are 50 sample questions to ask in a reading. And here are 3 ways an intuitive can help you be happy… and discover your life purpose.
4. Keep the energy flowing
This is key to a powerful psychic reading. In fact, keeping the energy flowing during a reading is super important. If the energy is not flowing, it’s like trying to drive a car with flat tires.
So, to help keep the energy moving, be sure that you take part in the reading, too. :)
You see, if you are afraid to “give things away” it puts energetic walls up, slows the energy, and makes it harder for the clairvoyant to read you.
So instead, chat with the intuitive reader. Of course, she will do most of the talking, but you should chime in whenever you want. Best yet? You can totally interact without “giving anything away.” Even an enthusiastic yes that makes sense helps keeps those good vibes going!
Tip: don’t worry about all the myths like psychics can read your mind. They can’t, so relax and enjoy!
5. Be open to the possibilities
Another tip for a powerful psychic reading is to be open to all possibilities.
For clarity that means…
Discuss the issues you need to, but welcome the unexpected also. You see, real psychics will have set the intention that your reading is for your highest and best good… and you may just get a fab message that you need to hear! (Learn 5 traits of good psychic readers here.)
Special Tip for Mediumship Readings
Lots of times, people see a spirit medium and think, I’ll only believe it’s grandpa if he talks about cigars. Now, the medium could give you lots of other evidence, but if you don’t hear about cigars, you doubt it’s grandpa.
But I’m here to tell you that… if most of the information makes sense, go with it. Why?
Because sometimes, things don’t make sense during the reading, but will later. Plus, you don’t want to miss a magical connection with spirit!
Remember: The job of a spiritual medium is to give those in spirit a voice. You may not always hear exactly what you want to hear, but you will hear what your loved one in heaven feels is most important. If you go in with this mindset, your experience will be more enjoyable.
6. Take notes
I always recommend that my clients take notes during their reading. Even if you have a memory like an elephant, take notes. Write down important points so you don’t forget anything.
Also write down things that don’t make sense during the reading. That’s because they may make sense later on — or someone in the family might be able to confirm the information. You would be surprised how often this happens!
7. Have your phone ready
Phone psychic readings are a great option for many people. And luckily, most mediums and intuitive readers offer them. (Just make sure you are in an area that has a good signal.)
For phone psychic readings, I like AskNow because they test their psychics. They also have a satisfaction guarantee and people who can help you select the perfect psychic for your needs. Plus, new clients can get a 15 minute reading for $10. (Which is about the best deal I’ve seen anywhere!)
8. Eliminate distractions
A powerful psychic reading can’t happen if you’re distracted. (We want that good energy to flow, remember?)
So during your reading, you really want to be present. That means:
- If you are having a phone reading, make sure you are in a quiet, comfy place with no distractions.
- Be sure the kids have everything they need so you can focus on your reading.
- Turn off your cell phone if you are having a reading in person.
9. Don’t have a reading with a hangover
Alcohol and recreational drugs can lower your vibration and negatively affect your energy. For this reason, don’t drink or take drugs in the 24 hour-period before your reading. Prescription and over the counter meds are fine.
10. Enjoy it!
Above all else, enjoy the experience! A powerful psychic reading should feel like a conversation with a friend that you don’t want to end.
Participate, ask questions, get excited! Have fun!
