Psychic Readings, The Basics

August 16th, 2010 by KiHealing1 Leave a reply »

I always love to provide helpful information about healing and spirituality and holistic healing and health. Whenever I come into a good read, I plan to share it with you. Sound good?

For those of you who are just beginning to explore the extra sensory world of perception, I came into a great basics article to share with you. It was written by one of my favorite online authors, Phylameana lila Desy. Maybe you have heard of her? She is one of my faves because she always provides helpful, basic, point- you -in- the -right direction kind of content related to one of your favorite topics: holistic healing. She is a trustworthy source of information on the vastness that is this web.

The article is: Psychic Readings, Helpful Tips Before Seeking the Advice of a Psychic

Now, I have to tell you, I don’t usually seek the advice of a Psychic, yet in no way do I think there is anything wrong with doing so. I actually have a short experience I can share on a blog for another time. However, I do have a strong belief about visits to psychics, and that it is this: I believe it is very important to trust yourself when choosing the person, when taking-in the information he or she shares, and when deciding whether you need to/want to return.

You should also ask yourself, “Does this information resonate with me?” If it does, great! If it doesn’t resonate, don’t worry about it. It doesn’t have to, and sometimes things don’t resonate until days later. I also feel that it’s important to feel comfortable with your psychic. Maybe you don’t have to get a warm fuzzy feeling all over you, but you should at least feel a sense of sincerity and integrity with this person. She or he should put you at ease opposed to keeping you scared (or making you scared).  Is this making sense for you?

Ultimately, I feel that we have all of the answers somewheres within ourselves. That being said, sometimes we need some guidance in bringing those answers to the surface . Hopefully, this is what a psychic can do for you — guide you to your own answers, encourage you on your path (providing you are ‘on track’). I also recognize that sometimes we need to know facts, like, where in the heck is that diamond ring I lost?!  If a psychic can help with that sort of a thing, that’s really fantastic.

Okay, enough of me talking, here is the actual article. Bye for now!


It isn’t unusual to want to seek answers from others when life seems uncertain or when you are facing a difficult decision. Turning to a trusted parent, teacher, friend, or personal adviser is not always possible. However, there are professional psychics (intuitive counselors) who are very adept at helping their clients sort through their confusions.

Before you pick up the phone and dial 1-900-XXX-XXXX for a phone reading, prepay for a Skype session, or book an in-person consultation, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Know beforehand what to expect during a reading.
  • Choose a psychic whose special talents would best meet your needs.
  • Learn how to stay clear of or RUN away from charletons who only want your money.

Do Your Homework

Not all psychics are alike. How they run their businesses will vary. It is up to you as the consumer to find out what to expect before booking a session. If a psychic has a Web site, take some time to explore it. Review the psychic’s resume. Also look for a description or informational text explaining what a session costs, what you get in exchange for your payment, etc. If not, look for an email or contact form for inquiries. Reading client referrals or testimonials are also helpful. Just know that you are not going to see any negative reviews posted on the psychic’s Web site… Google or Bing the psychic’s name to see if there are any negative, neutral, or rave reviews written elsewhere.

Psychic Practitioners and Their Specialties

The term “psychic” is a general title among intuitive counselors much like the title “doctor” is used in the medical profession. Your family doctor is probably a general practitioner, but many doctors specialize in specific areas (pediatricians, chiropractors, endocrinologists, psychiatrists, and so forth). The same is true in the field of intuition. Listed here are some of the specialized areas where some psychics or intuitive counselors focus their talents:

Psychics – Whether you are seeking general or specific advice in your relationships, career, finances, future outlooks, etc. you don’t necessarily need to consult with a specialized psychic.

Tarot Readers – Tarot cards are often used by psychics who are clairvoyant or are better able to tap into intuitive knowledge through visual tools. Professional Tarot readers are merely using the cards as a tool or gateway into knowledge. Other tools psychics use include runes, animal bones for tossing, I Ching coins, crystal balls, etc.

acutely aware of the connection between your physical issues in connection with your emotional and spiritual bodies. They can be very helpful in helping you to identify the root cause of your ills.

Mediums – Mediums are psychics who specialize in communicating with spirits who once lived as humans and are now residing in the spiritual realm. People turn to mediums as a way to help their grieving process after a loved one has passed or to help resolve any conflicts that were left open-ended at the time of someone’s death. Mediums can also communicate with your spirit guides.

Animal Communicators – Animal communicators are intune with the animal kingdom. They serve as interpreters between you and your pets. They can help you better understand the behaviors and needs of your animal friends. Many animal communicators are also serve as mediums because they able to communicate with the spirits of animals who are no longer living in the physical form.

Astrologers – Astrologers are not necessarily “psychic” but they have studied the planets and do their share of intuiting information while interpreting birth charts and planetary transit influences. If you are curious about your pre-birth life path choices an astrologer would be able to give you some clues.

Palm Readers – Palmistry is a science. Palm readers navigate the lines in your hands much like a traveler would study a map. They have studied the meanings of lines, mounds, markings, hand shapes, finger lengths, fingernail types, and more.

Some psychics who call themselves palm readers may know little or nothing about reading palms scientifically, they merely are better able to “read” others when they touch them. Holding onto a client’s hand is a tool for them to get in and see better. Touching another person to attain intuitive messages is similar to psychometry which involves handling objects to intuit information.

Angel Intuitives – Angel intuitives are among a group of psychics who communicate with spiritual messengers and teachers residing in higher dimensions (angels, ascended masters, spirit totems and other spiritual entities.

Past Life Readers – Some psychics have the ability “read past lives” by accessing the akashic library and reviewing your past and future lifetimes. Supposedly, persons that have been given the “golden key” to enter the akashic library have earned the right to do so with karmic credits from living ethical past lives themselves. Past life readers or scholars can help clients understand their current life struggles and triumphs through studying karmic influences and soul contracts.

Life Coaches – Not all life coaches are psychic. But if you want to work with an psychic life coach, they are out there, so shop around. And, it wouldn’t hurt to come right and ask, just because life coaches don’t market themselves as being intuitive doesn’t meant they aren’t. Life coaching is a career focused on “empowering” others to take steps to improve the quality of their work, relationships, personal achievements, and more.

The “bad eggs” in the psychic field are scam artists who take advantage of the vulnerabilities of others. They may not charge a lot of money upfront, but once they have you in their clutches they will work on your fears and frighten you into shelling out more money for additional services that often come at an extravagant expense.
