Types of psychic readings
There are many options available, which can easily overwhelm any first-timer. It helps, however, to take the time and learn more about these different types of psychic readings, so as to help you narrow down your choices when you decide to make an appointment. Listed below are some of the most popular and common types of readings which you can explore before deciding:
A psychic with animal telepathy abilities is able to create a connection with animals on a spiritual level. Though this connection they can get a glimpse at the feelings and thoughts of the animal. Animals who are experiencing strange behavior without a logical reason are good candidates to visit an animal telepathic to help identify the underlying cause of the behavior.
When we say astrology, most people would think about that column on the daily paper. Astrology, however, is more than that. This type of reading takes into consideration the place and time of your birth and alignment of the planets during that time to reveal potentials and energies you were born with, and current trends in your life which you can use.
Aura reading allows the psychic advisor the ability to see the atmosphere or aura around a person, animal or even an object. This lets them look at the color, clarity and shape and look for any disturbances that may signify a problem in the individual’s life.
Automatic writing is a common tool for clairvoyants. Instead of speaking what they are seeing in the spirit world, they use their subconscious to write it on paper. Through this, the clairvoyant allows the outside entity to use their hand for them and pass information.
The use of deck cards to reveal past, present and future aspects of your life. Cartomancy’s popularity started in the 18th century, with the use of regular deck of cards. Today it has recently experienced resurgence and psychics utilize special cards such as oracle, divination and angel decks
Channeling is something psychic mediums do. They allow ghost or other spirits, like angels, to take over their body. The spirit uses the medium as a vessel to speak directly with the person receiving the reading. To an outsider, it will look as if the medium is speaking, but really, the spirit is simply using their mouth to speak.
A clairvoyant uses remote viewing to see visions of people or events that they couldn’t possibly see with their real eyes. They may be able to actually see real events/people that have already happened, are going to happen or are happening far away. They may also see non-physical realities, dimensions or another person/spirit’s consciousness.
A clairaudience is similar to a clairvoyance. However, instead of seeing visions, they hear voices and sounds that non-psychics cannot. This does not mean they can hear invisible spirits within the area. Instead, it means they hear voices or sounds that are far away that are connected with or affect the person receiving the reading.
Clairsentience is similar to clairvoyance and clairaudience in that the psychic reader is able to pick up on information that someone without the ability could not. However, instead of seeing or hearing, they feel this information. When a clairsentience meets someone, they are able to feel information. For example, they may be able to know someone’s name before someone tells them because they get a strong feeling, which tells them this information.
This type of reading involves the act of casting lots, a practice that is thousands of years old. Cleromancy is still being practiced today and is done through with the use of objects like dice, stones or bones. Once the objects are casted, the cleromancer will then analyze each of them according to their orientation, position and proximity to each other.
Divination is the most common form of psychic reading. Most psychics with this ability have some kind of ritual, which may include using tarot cards or just preparing themselves mentally to receive the information. During divination, the psychic gains insight to a situation. This allows them to understand the situation, even without hearing all the details, and see the future outcome.
Dowsing often uses special pendulums, sticks or rods to help locate items. In the past, it was often used to help locate water. However, now psychic readers can use it to help locate missing items.
Empaths are individuals who can immerse themselves in the emotions of other people, and to some point, control other’s emotional states as well. These readings are best recommended for people who are sad, hurt and troubled and require helpful insight when it comes to their feelings and emotions.
Involves the study of numbers and how the apply to your life. A numerologist usually takes numbers by using your birthname or birthdate to reveal insight about your life.
Readings that involves foretelling of your future by studying one’s palm.
A medium speaks with those on the other side, like ghosts or angels. Through this communication, they get a peek into the non-physical dimension and bring it to the physical dimension. Some mediums choose to channel deceased loved ones to allow them to communicate with living loved ones, an others channel angles or archangels to help offer guidance.
Precognition is similar to divination. The psychic uses this ability to help read the future. However, with precognition, the reader does not actually see or view the future. Instead, their power leaves them with some information about the event. For example, instead of seeing you getting married to your fiancé, a premonition will simply let the psychic feel that you will get married to your fiancé.
With psychometry, a psychic uses a person’s objects to get glimpses into their current life or past. The psychic simply touches the item to get vibrations or energies, which provide the images. This ability is commonly seen in movies or books as a way for psychics to help locate missing people because, the psychic gets an idea about who touched it last, so they may be able to help locate the missing person.
Retrocognition is similar to precognition, but instead of seeing into the future, the psychic sees into the past. This psychic ability is commonly used to read into an individual’s past lives to help diagnose current problems with their life. It is also often used to help view into the individual’s non-physical life, which occurs between physical lives.
Scrying is the ability to look into an object and see into the future or far away. Commonly, the item is reflective, translucent or luminescent, such as a crystal, mirror or fire. Through the item, the psychic receives images of what the future holds.
Tarot readings involve the use of a Tarot deck, which consists of 78 cards, all used to gain insight into your life. The tarot reader uses different spreads and assigns particular lenses, through which he or she interprets the cards with.
Telepathy is the ability to communicate with someone with the mind alone. The two forms of telepathy are telepathic communication and telepathic perception. Telepathic communication allows the psychic to transmit information form their mind to another, while telepathic perception is used to gain information from the person receiving the reading. This allows them to gain facts that may have been impossible to get through traditional senses, due to physical barriers, time or distance.
