While talking to some new friends recently, I realized many folks do not know how to find a good psychic reader. But what is more important, they do not know how to find the Right Psychic for them. So I pulled out the book I wrote a couple years ago (Psychic Integrity, The Respected Practice of Modern Day Mystics), and copied this information from it. If you are looking for just the right psychic for you, then here are some pointers:
“There are many quality and professional readers for you to choose from. But knowing ahead of time how the psychic proceeds in the reading is important. You want to have a competent and honest reader. There are some simple guidelines for the process of choosing a reader:
“1. Know what you want. Why are you going to a reader? Is there something specific you want to know? Is it about a past problem or emotional issue? Do you want to see what is possible for the future? Is it dealing with the loss of a loved one? What is your bottom line? It is easier to interview your potential readers knowing what information you want. Find out if their focus and style fit your needs. Usually, any type of reading can assist you with questions about your life. It is the reader’s psychic ability, or skill with divination tools, that supplies your answers.
“2. You are shopping for a life consultant. Your interview should reflect that desire. Ask questions to find out exactly what you want to know about the reader. (I’ll give sample answers after each question.) How long have you been a reader? (A reader who has only been working with the public for a few months may not be qualified or experienced enough to address your situation.) Who were your teachers or mentors? (Most reputable readers have studied with someone for a number of years, learning to use their gifts, and relying on the mentor for assistance in understanding the dynamics of psychic/medium abilities.) How do you receive your information and what kind of things could you tell me? (The reader will tell you if they are able to connect with your energy field, connect with spirit energies, or use a tool, such as tarot or palms.) What is a typical reading like? (The reader should be able to tell you how long the reading will last, if they use prayer and protection, if they expect questions, or would rather give channeled information from their guides.)
“3. Ask if they provide a taped reading (or other recording/ transcript). If not, let them know you will be bringing your own recorder. You can refer to the recording later, again and again, and receive the full benefit of the reading.
“4. How do you feel while talking to the readers? Do they answer your questions to your satisfaction? Do they take the time to explain their answers fully? Expect the same results from the reading.
“While attending a psychic fair or other metaphysical event with multiple readers, you have a chance to use some of the suggested guidelines listed above. This is a perfect place to find a new reader, especially if you have never had a session with a psychic before. As you enter the event, be sure to pick up a program guide, listing all the exhibitors there. Read the description for each reader. Highlight a few that look promising to you and go to their booths to see them.
“Notice what the booth looks like. Is it nicely decorated, or does it look plain or disheveled? Does the reader seem approachable? Ask them some of the questions I have suggested to determine the right reader for you. How do you feel about the person while you talk to them? These are ways to help you decide who is right for you.
“Another good way to find a reader is to go to a local metaphysical book store. Many times, the book store will have one or more readers there that give readings on a regular basis. Talk to the owner or manager of the store and ask about the readers there.
“Tell the person in charge that you have not had a reading before and ask for their suggestion on who would be good.”
