So you have decided that you want to have a reading by a psychic (or an intuitive counselor) but you’re not sure how to pick among the many psychics in your neighborhood or listed online? Picking a psychic doesn’t have to be stressful. Each one has their own style and there are different types of psychics. Some of these include psychic, psychic medium, spiritual counselor, intuitive reader, clairvoyant, and healer. Here are some suggestions on what to look for.

Determine what type of reading you want:

Do you want information about career, life purpose, finances, relationships, family or love? This is a psychic reading.

Maybe you want to hear from a deceased loved one? This is a mediumship or “channeled” reading.

Maybe you need an energy healing session? In this case, you would look for someone who is an energy/intuitive healer or spiritual counselor.

What is the difference? 

I’ll touch on two of my favorites: spiritual counseling and intuitive reading, but there are so many variations. Here’s a great article about the difference between psychic ability and intuition

  • A spiritual counselor’s goal may be to help you find more love in your life. They will use various techniques to help you to achieve this by looking at your belief system, unblocking your chakras, helping your energy flow correctly – using techniques such as; Reiki, cord cutting, and entity removal.
  • An intuitive reader, using their own intuitive skills, the reader will gain wisdom and insight from various vibrational/energy plains of existence including angel guidance, psychic intuition, or mediumship, helping to move the client forward in life. The goal of an intuitive reader is to help put the client on the right path.

Tools of the trade:

Use of divination tools, such as tarot cards, oracle cards, pendulum, crystal ball or crystals (generally used in therapeutic healing sessions) can be used interchangeably and not to be taken lightly.

The reader may use tools to confirm the channeled messages they are receiving, while giving you more details to the story – your story. Such as a pendulum, which is used during a reading to ascertain “yes” or “no” questions from spirit.

As with any reading or tool that is used, make sure the reader is invoking love and has your best interest in mind.

What to expect:

When you are in a session be open to the information that is being channeled. If you are skeptical, negative or try to test the process it may muddle the reading. Please communicate your concerns before the session. A true reader senses energy and will know if you are doubting the process. Also, it’s OK to let them know if they are on the right track without telling them too much information. This may help the reader and will keep the reading going strong.

What’s better? A reading in person, online, through email or over the phone?  I feel that in some cases, it may be better to have a reading over the phone so the reader can’t see your facial expressions. But, usually there is no difference. It really comes down to personal preference. The energy is present no matter if you are in close proximity to the reader or not.

A reading can be very healing. It can provide clarity and help you to live a more joyful life. Many people suffer; especially after the death of a loved one. A reading is a helpful tool in releasing conditions that are causing you to live in fear, anger, resentment, jealousy, and lack of money or happiness.

A reader should never take the place of a licensed doctor or therapist. They should never diagnose conditions or claim to cure diseases. Think of a reader as someone who can see and sense energy and work with your team of medical professionals.

Hopefully, this article has given you insight into how to pick a qualified reader and add them to your healing team to lead a more balanced life. And, when searching for a reader, if something doesn’t feel right, follow your gut feeling. There are plenty of ethical psychics with high integrity out there waiting to work with you.
