Take the Time to Prepare Yourself
A psychic reading isn’t something you should go into blindly. Taking some time to understand why you are going to the reading and what you hope to get out of it will clarify your expectations and help you open your mind to the experience. The day before your reading spend some quiet time thinking about what is going on in your life and what motivated you to set up the appointment. Prepare yourself to relax and open the channels of energy between yourself and your reader.
Create a Comfortable Environment
You will get a much better reading if you are relaxed and your environment is free from distractions. Turn off your cell phone and go into your reading alone. If you are at all anxious when you enter the reading, share this with your reader. Take a few moments to talk with her before delving into the actual reading so you can put yourself more at ease.
Open Yourself to the Possibilities of the Reading
One of the mistakes many people make when going into a psychic reading is drastically limiting what they will accept as “legitimate”. While you should have some idea as to what you hope to glean from your reading, you shouldn’t create absolutes in you mind. This is especially important if you are getting a reading from a spiritual medium. Remember that your medium is relaying messages that you may need to evaluate from different perspectives instead of offering specific information to meet your expectations.
Protect Yourself from Scams
While you are expected to pay for your reading just like you would pay for any other service, you should not feel pressured to pay more just to make the reading more effective. A psychic’s abilities are not motivated by money and you paying more should not make any difference as to the clarity or effectiveness of the reading. Make sure you know ahead of time how much you are expected to pay and end the reading if you are asked to pay more.
Ask Open-Ended Questions
A reading should provide valuable information and concepts for you to consider, not just basic answers. Don’t ask questions that can be answered with just a simple “yes” or “no”, or require extremely specific answers. Think in terms of a conversation and be ready to interpret answers that are given to you.
Leave Yourself Plenty of Time
You are likely to be given an estimation of how long the reading will take, but you should not limit yourself just to this amount of time. Psychic readings often extend beyond the set time and you don’t want to suddenly stop the interaction because you have something else planned immediately after your appointment.
Interact throughout the Reading
The flow of emotional energy between you and the reader is essential to the quality of your reading. This means that while you should let yourself be open to listening to what the reader has to say, you should focus on accepting the energy and returning it to her in the form of questions, responses, and verifications. Even just qualifying a bit of information as valid, without explaining why or revealing any further information, keeps the energy high.
Be Fully Present for Your Reading
In order for your reading to have meaning, you need to come into it with full mental clarity. This means you need to avoid any type of activity or product that may hamper your thoughts or compromise your ability to think clearly, including alcohol, sedatives, and recreational drugs.
Be Wary of Phone Readings
Phone readings can be powerful and convenient, but only if you have the right type of equipment. Landlines are preferable for this type of reading, as they provide a more tangible connection between you and the reader. If you must use a cell phone, be sure you have a reliable signal and that you seclude yourself away from distractions that may take you away from your concentration on the reading.
Allow Yourself to Relax
It is easy to feel a bit nervous when going to a psychic reading, particularly if it is your first. You may feel vulnerable and exposed, even believing that the reader can literally “read” your mind. Rest assured your thoughts are not exposed to the reader and allow yourself to fully relax. This will help you to be more open to the reading and its potential benefits.
