How to Prepare For Your First Psychic Reading

Walking in to get a psychic reading for the first time can be a little daunting. You might not know what to expect, how to act when you arrive, or really anything about psychic readings. 

It’s tough to get an accurate idea of psychic readings because esoteric and new age practices often get a bad wrap in the media. There’s seldom an accurate depiction of a psychic in movies and television. 

So, we’re here to give you a few pointers on how to prepare for your first psychic reading. Whether you’re going into a business or you’re getting a psychic phone reading, the ideas below will apply. 

Let’s take a look and read about what happens during a psychic reading. 

1. Adjust Expectations

It’s important to know what an actual psychic reading can do and what it cannot do for you. 

It’s an incredible thing, but it might not be incredible in the ways that you would imagine if you’d seen a few movies about psychics. The first thing to note is that psychics can’t predict the future.  

Someone who is psychic simply has better access to the network of energy of which we’re all a part. Things in that network don’t operate in mechanical or logical ways. There might be indications or leanings in particular directions on certain matters, but there are no exact answers. 

For example, a psychic couldn’t tell you who was going to win the World Cup. They might, however, be able to tell you something about the network of energy you and your relationships are situated in. 

Through that, we can glean certain insights. 

Some psychics are also better connected with energy from the afterlife. Contact with individuals who have passed isn’t uncommon in a psychic reading. The specificity of that communication, though, can vary. 

The individual doing your reading might get a very strong message from your loved one, or they might just be able to recognize that someone, in particular, is watching over you. 

2. Make Sure Not to Give Personal Details

The mark of a good psychic is someone who can give an excellent reading with no information about you. 

If you know that this individual doesn’t have any information about you and they still manage to shake your foundation with impossible information, you’ll recognize the value of a reading. 

Doubt and suspicion can interfere with the insights that you would otherwise pull from a reading. So, make sure that you’re anonymous before you enter the session. 

With a blank slate, you’ll see just what a psychic can do for you. 

3. Have an Intention

It’s also important to have something that you’re looking to get out of the reading. 

That is unless you just want to go in there and see what the psychic picks up from you. In most cases, though, someone seeks out a psychic for a particular reason. Think about that reason for a couple of days before your reading. 

Work out the details of why this thing is important to you, what you’d like to learn about that thing, or what you would like to see change if you come to terms with that particular issue. 

When you have this intention solidified in your mind, it will be more present in the reading. Most psychics will be able to pick up on the energy that you’re cultivating within yourself and see how that energy is impacting your environment. 

So, the stronger a particular energy, the easier it is for them to read. 

4. Be Open to Interpretation

As we noted above, psychic reading isn’t something that comes in very specific terms. 

That doesn’t, however, mean that the reading isn’t telling you something true. Depending on the type of psychic, the odds are that they’ll be receiving messages in the form of symbols, abstractions, images, or brief waves of emotion. 

A seasoned psychic can interpret those messages better than others. That said, you will always be an integral part of the process and may need to explore your mind to find connections. Spirits and energies often communicate through minutiae and odd things that you might not think are important. 

These are little details like an object, a possession, a conversation, or something else. There’s a chance that the symbols could be clear as day as well. There might be no question of what someone is trying to convey to you.

The nice thing is that the symbols you’re faced with might be ones that you’re familiar with. They could be ideas or motifs that were present in your loved ones’ lives or your own life at a certain time. 

The key, though, is to be open to the idea that there might be levels of communication that aren’t what we’re used to on this plane. Normal language, for example, might not be the language of the spirits. 

5. Try to Find a Peaceful State

In the days that led up to your reading, do your best to try some relaxation techniques. Practice a little meditation, do some yoga, or take part in activities that you enjoy in order to clear your head. 

The calmer and collected you are at the time of your reading, the better able your psychic will be to get information through you. When your mind is cluttered and scattered, the reading will reflect that. 

Think of yourself as a mirror. The cloudier it is, the more difficult it will be to see your reflection. Similarly, the more cluttered your mind, the harder it will be for a psychic to pick up on your energy. 

This is especially true if you have a particular question or problem in mind. If you’re looking for something specific, a cluttered mind can really get in the way of a psychic’s abilities
