If you have made the decision to get your first psychic reading you are likely excited at the prospect of what the reading may hold, but also wondering what you can do to make the most out of the experience. Getting prepared for your first psychic reading is not about doing specific things, but rather, putting yourself in the right frame of mind and emotional state to glean the most benefit from the capabilities of the psychic or psychic medium.
Choose the Right Reader
The first step in preparing for an effective and enjoyable first psychic reading is to choose the right psychic or psychic medium. There are, unfortunately, many fraudulent readers in the world and if you stumble into a reading with one of them you could find yourself being taking advantage of emotionally and financially. Be wary of supposed psychics or offer extremely low cost or free readings, or who approach you with “advice” without being solicited. This is a strong indication of a scam and should immediately deter you from working with that person.
Ask trusted friends or family members to direct you to legitimate, high quality psychics or psychic mediums so you can feel confident you are choosing a person who has a genuine gift. If the reader offers a free initial consultation, use it not to get free intuitive information or advice, but as an opportunity to get to know the reader and determine if you feel comfortable with her.
Schedule Your Reading Carefully
The time that you choose for your reading can make a dramatic impact on the quality of your reading. You should give yourself plenty of time to focus on your reading, not try to squeeze the appointment in between other obligations during your day. This will ensure you are not rushed and harried when entering the appointment or concerned that you are going to be late to another appointment and unable to focus on the end of your reading.
You should also be aware of your emotions when you are planning a reading. If you are deeply depressed, frustrated, or angered by something going on in your life when you go to your first reading, your energy will be negatively influenced and your reading will likely take on a much darker tone than it would if you were in a better emotional and spiritual place when seeking a reading.
Clarify Your Expectations
It is important to take time before your first reading to clarify your expectations for your reading and your hopes for what you are going to get out of it. This is the time to understand your personal motivations behind seeking a reading, and to open your mind to the possibilities your reading offers. This is also the time when you should release any preconceived notions you may have about your reading. Let go of absolutes that you have that you feel will “prove” the worth or authenticity of your reader, and replace them with a willingness to take in what the reading offers.
Relax Your Mind
When you arrive for your reading, make sure your mind is relaxed and you are ready to take in the experience for what it is, not necessarily for you think it should be. Be willing to ask for clarification from your reader if you are unsure of what something means, but don’t offer too much information that may sway the reading. Most importantly, prepare yourself to be an active participant in your reading. The psychic or psychic medium works off of your energy and needs a certain level of interaction in order to provide information that can be interpreted. Don’t just go into your reading expecting to sit down and have the future unfolded for you. Ask directed, open-ended questions and allow your mind to take in the answers and interpret them.
