When seeking advice or a future outlook from a psychic reader, there are a few simple yet critical steps you can take to help ensure a successful outcome, no matter what your reading is about.

Many people will flock to a psychic to get insight on issues having to do with love, career, or matters of health.

Oftentimes, people will feel either afraid, anxious, or even desperate to hear what will be revealed in the reading. Furthermore, many people will go into a reading with an expectation of what they want to hear. Not only do these emotions markedly increase your stress levels, this sense of pre-reading anxiety can lead to outcomes that may be less desirable and can even possibly throw off a psychic’s ability to effectively read you.

For this reason, it is important to set yourself into a neutral mindset. This can be achieved by doing a few simple techniques just prior to the reading, such as deep breathing or sitting quietly for a few minutes while committing to letting go of any one outcome. If you practice meditation, setting aside some time to go into a short meditative session may also be a way to stave off pre-reading jitters.

You might even try something a bit more tangible by taking the issue you will be discussing with your psychic, writing it down on a piece of paper, and either burning, burying it, or flushing it down the toilet.

By doing this, you are sending a signal to the conscious mind to let it go. Even though on the one hand, this very issue is the reason for seeing the psychic, the left brain has been given a directive that it need not focus on it. No matter what you are told, you have already set yourself within a field of neutrality, which also allows a good psychic a clear pathway into your energy field so that they can procure accurate information to convey to you.

Speaking of the Field

It is important to remember that you carry a field of energy both within and around you, which many refer to as an aura. This field contains information about your past, present, and future, though fluid as each of these may be.  A good psychic reader will be able to tap into your energy field in order to provide you with guidance and advice.

Some feel that a very talented psychic reader is not only tapping into your personal field but also the larger field that we are all tethered to. This larger field is sometimes referred to as the Akashic. It is said that literally all information that has existed in the past, exists in the present, and will exist in the future is ever-present and accessible within this field. Additionally, the consciousness of both the individual and collective take up residence within the Akashic and it is therefore possible for a good psychic to tap our consciousness, including our energetic blueprint directly from this larger field.

After your reading is complete, you’re now left with the steps of either taking the guidance he or she has left you with or not. But what if you could do a little psychic “sniff test” of your own to help you determine whether or not the advice you were given was worth taking the next step?

Using Tarot and Oracle Cards for Confirmation

When seeking advice or guidance from a psychic or spiritual advisor, it can be helpful to use tarot or oracle cards for confirmation. After receiving a reading, take some time to pull cards from a deck and see if they align with the messages given by the reader. This process can help you test the accuracy of the psychic’s reading and tap into your own intuitive processes. If the cards do in fact align by relaying similar messages received from the reading, this can be used as your personal green light to proceed with the guidance that your psychic reader shared with you.

Before doing this you may decide to take a few minutes to meditate on what was shared with you and focus on the original questions you brought to the reading. Then proceed to pull the cards to see if they match up. In taking this step, you are placing attention on the issue(s) at hand and asking your inner guidance to either confirm or deny what you were told during the reading.

Two of my favorite decks are Moonology Oracle and The Kipper Deck for this process. When pulling cards, ask for clarification on the messages you received in the reading.  If you find that the cards reflect the messages you were given and you feel an internal sense of accuracy about the reading, this could serve as your green light.

Other forms of confirmation might include using a pendulum dowsing method in which you sit and think about what your reader shared with you and simply ask whether the information given was accurate with a “yes,” “no,” or “not sure” answer. Oftentimes, a yes answer will be reflected in your pendulum moving in a clockwise motion. No will be counterclockwise and if the pendulum oscillates, this may reflect “unclear” or “not sure.” 

Regardless of the method you use, remember that what is reflected whether through cards, a dowsing pendulum, or just an inner sense, you are tapping the power of your own psychic sense to get confirmation about the accuracy (or not) of your all-important psychic readings.

While getting a psychic reading is never about a make-or-break life choice, it can provide great value on your personal journey. Use your own intuitive assets to set the tone and your path forward to make your session a winning experience from beginning to end, and beyond.
