If you are considering going to a psychic or a psychic medium for your first reading, it is important that you are fully prepared. While some people attend this type of reading purely for “fun”, if you approach it with honest, openness, and willingness to welcome and interpret the intuited messages from your reader, you could find many genuine benefits. It is easy to feel nervous before your reading. Knowing what to expect and how to approach your reading will help put your mind at ease so you can make the most of your experience.
Evaluate Your Motivations Before You Go
Even before you make your appointment, and then again before you attend your reading, you need to carefully evaluate your motivations for getting a reading. Even if you think you are having a reading just for fun or entertainment, you should evaluate why you think this type of activity would be fun and what you hope to get out of it. Exploring your motivations clarifies what you want from your reading, what you want to know, and how you are going to interpret and use the information you are going to get from your psychic or psychic medium. This is the time to come up with questions you would like to ask so you are ready when your reading begins.
Ensure Your Expectations are Realistic
You cannot expect the psychic or psychic medium you are visiting to know everything. This is not the purpose or the goal of this type of professional. Rather, psychics possess heightened senses and capabilities that allow them to intuit information about you. Keeping this in mind, it is essential that your expectations are realistic regarding what you need to feel confidence in the reader. For example, don’t choose a specific piece of information that your reader must produce in order for you to believe he has connected with a deceased loved one or is reading you accurately. Embrace the idea of flexibility, realizing there is some margin for error and the messages your reader gives may not be exact, but close enough to show accuracy.
Be a Willing Participant
Particularly during your first reading, when you are likely to be more guarded and nervous, it is essential to focus on being an open and willing participant in the reading. Expect your psychic to spend a few minutes talking to you before actually beginning the reading. This is your chance to get to know him and feel more relaxed. If you are still feeling uncomfortable after interacting for a few minutes, or feel that the psychic is trying to fish for details, end the reading and excuse yourself. Once the reading has begun, it is your responsibility to be a relaxed and willing participant. It is crucial to always be honest with your reader and not be purposely vague or misleading thinking you can verify his worth and authenticity by letting him “figure it out”. Ask for clarification or explanation if you aren’t sure what you are being told. Above all, relax and have fun.
