Psychic advice. Lots of times, at the end of a session, a client will tell me that they enjoyed our time together and then ask, “When should I get another reading?”

I love this question! It indicates to me that the client found the session valuable. So what’s the answer? How often should you get psychic readings?
You could ask 10 different intuitive readers this question and get 10 different answers ranging from:
- Get as many readings as you want!
- One every six weeks
- One to two per year
This is one of those things where there really isn’t one right answer; everyone has their own opinion. My personal feeling is that the reason you are getting psychic advice is as important as how often you are getting it.
Are you getting a reading to:
- Obtain intuitive insight or clarity about a situation?
- Get validation about something you are feeling?
- Get intuitive guidance about a decision you are trying to make, such as which path to choose?
- Uncover the root cause of a problem, such as a past life influence?
- Understand your soul’s plan and life lessons?
- Identify possible future outcomes (the future is subject to change depending upon the choices we make)?
Readings can be a great tool, and these are all great reasons to have one! (If you’re ready, you can talk to a psychic right now.)
But, if you are getting psychic advice because you feel as though you can’t make decisions without consulting a psychic, that’s a different story. (We’ll talk more about that in a minute.)
Generally speaking, as long as you aren’t becoming dependent on intuitive advice, or allowing a psychic to make decisions for you (impeding on your free will), a few readings a year are all right.
The truth is that nobody really needs a reading (it’s not a basic necessity of life, such as food or shelter), but you might want a reading.
There are lots of things that we want because we find them helpful or enjoy them.
I personally get about two readings per year because I like getting intuitive input from others who have an unbiased view of my life. I learn something from each reading and I think they’re a lot of fun!
Three Situations When You Shouldn’t Get Psychic Advice
1. Nothing Has Changed
I used to limit my clients to one or two sessions per year, but I’ve loosened that policy a bit where I’ll now read for the same person a few times a year as long as:
- We’re discussing different topics
- There has been a change. For example, if you and I were discussing your career and three months after our chat, nothing had changed, I would not recommend you have another session to talk about your career. It’s a waste of your money and time to pay to discuss the same exact thing.
Some people find one reader that they are comfortable with and stick with them. I have many clients like this who have been with me for years. Other people like to mix it up and get psychic advice from different readers.
Either way is fine and it comes down to personal preference. However, if you find that you’re “psychic hopping” because you can’t connect with a reader, check out these tips.
2. You’re Becoming Dependent
Some psychic readers will not limit the amount of times a client can see them and will continue to regurgitate the same advice over and over. I don’t agree with this, because it doesn’t empower people to use their own free will.
One reader I met told me that she would give a reading to the same man every day! He would promptly arrive at 5:00 p.m. each Monday through Friday evening for his daily reading. I think that’s crazy and unhealthy.
This man had become so dependent on psychic advice that he couldn’t make a decision without consulting the psychic. I personally feel that readers have an ethical responsibility not to allow psychic dependency.
If you are consulting intuitive readers frequently, I would encourage you to read this article about psychic dependency.
3. You’re Feeling Suicidal
It’s also not a good idea to get psychic advice if you are feeling suicidal. A few times, I have had people reach out to me when they’ve felt like taking their own life. In those cases, I gave them a shoulder to cry on, but referred them to a therapist or hospital.
If you are having suicidal thoughts, please reach out to a therapist or friend, not a psychic.
Psychic advice can be eye-opening and helpful on occasion, but remember: You have free will and all choices are ultimately up to you!
