7 things to know before your first psychic reading

blankSo for one reason or another, you’ve decided that visiting a psychic counselor is something you need to do at the moment. Getting some answers on your love life, career or other aspects that might preoccupy you can truly put things into perspective.

Because this is the first time getting a reading, you might not be entirely sure what to expect. Psychic counselor talents can vary, and before booking a session with one advisor or another, you should be well-informed on the subject.

You approach and attitude here can truly make a difference in how much your first session will actually help you. What are the things you should and shouldn’t do? How can you actually make this experience as productive and clarifying as you want it to be? The following pointers may provide you with the needed guidance:

Keep an open mind

Deciding to see a psychic means you believe they can actually help you with something. Beginning the session with skepticism will only affect the entire experience and prevent you from actually getting any answers. The number one rule to any successful psychic reading is keeping an open mind. If you are fixated on hearing specific information or receiving exact solutions, you won’t be able to actually receive the valuable insights the psychic might be sharing with you.

As long as you’ve made the choice to see and talk to this type of professional, being open and embracing the reading to the fullest is recommended. If you start your session with the strong belief that it won’t help you in any way, it probably won’t.

Do some research

Not all psychics out there are great, authentic or reliable. Without researching your options properly, you could easily end up paying money for a session that will leave you just as confused as you were beforehand.

Credentials can make a difference here. If you’ve searched for the psychic on your own, and you don’t have any prior experience, looking online for testimonials is advised. See what other people have to say about the said person. Were other readings successful? Have you come across any complaints? Nowadays, you have all the information you need put at your disposal with a quick search on the web. You’ll even find websites where the best online psychics are reviewed.

You shouldn’t be wasting money on scams or frauds, and this could easily happen if you visit or talk online to a psychic you know nothing about. Only after being certain other people were satisfied with their consultations, you should choose the said services yourself.

Let the psychic advisory guide the session

It’s normal for you to want to go in a certain direction with the reading. Perhaps a recent relationship fail is what’s concerning you, or you’re going through a career crisis and want to know what will happen in this sector of your life. Well, despite your initial wishes, you need to understand from the start that an authentic psychic session will go where it needs to, will flow naturally, and you aren’t the one in charge of guiding the discussion.

Talking too much, asking too many questions, not letting things flow naturally, will only ruin this entire experience. The psychic will sense the things that need resolving, even if you might not be aware of them when starting the session, that’s why it’s best to let them do most of the talking. Giving too much personal information can also be risky in some scenarios – a fraudulent psychic will manipulate the things you’re saying to their advantage.

Try to avoid ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions

Will I get married next year? Is my boss planning to fire me? Is my significant other being unfaithful? These are the types of questions that should never be asked during a reading. A psychic (at least an authentic one) will not be able to provide you with satisfactory answers to quick questions of this kind, because these usually demand further clarifications. Let the psychic use their skills to provide you with detailed responses in regards to certain problems in your life, instead of monopolizing the discussion with ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. You need to understand that a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ could actually leave you more confused.

Write down some things

Depending on the purpose of the reading and how the session goes, things can get really emotional. It will be rather difficult for you to remember, and also analyze everything that was said during the reading. This is why you are recommended to take a few notes of the key discussion points. Writing down some of the things said by the psychic will give you the chance to revise the entire reading and actually use the information obtained to your advantage.

Keep your expectations realistic

Don’t start your session believing you’ll find out when you’ll find your soul mate, if you’ll win the lottery or the exact number of kids you will have. Setting unrealistic expectations will only leave you disappointed. A psychic can provide you with some clarity and answers, but just because you’ve engaged in a reading, doesn’t mean you’re entire future and life will now be figured out. Keep yourself grounded.

Stop the session if something feels off

Because so many scams occur, when it comes to psychics, there is always the chance of you getting a session with someone who isn’t authentic and is simply trying to rip you off. If something feels off during the session, don’t hesitate to terminate it right there. Some red flags would be death predictions, curses or ancillary merchandising.

Whether you’re having problems with your relationship, you have anxiety in regards to what the future awaits for you, or you simply need  a bit of clarity in your life, a psychic reading could provide you with the answers you are looking for. However, it’s important to acknowledge a few important aspects from the start, in order to actually make the most out of this experience. These principles should be taken into account – they will allow you to engage in a resourceful, authentic session that can support you in various areas in your life.
