How to Prepare for Your Spiritual Readings

spiritual readings

Every day, around the world, people struggle with a variety of issues. Some are corporeal, related to our physical selves or the physical world around us.

Others are less tangible. They affect our feelings, our minds, our sense of self and our place in the world. Some relate to conflict within romance or family dynamics.

Dealing with those more abstract but no less real issues can be trying. The path to resolution isn’t always clear.

If you’re troubled by problems that are beyond the physical world, spiritual readings could help you find your way toward answers.

Read on to learn how to prepare for your session and get the most from the experience.

Booking Your Spiritual Readings

It takes courage to make time for spiritual readings. You are actively seeking to heal wounds or resolve issues that are in some way blocking your full potential.

You will have a more satisfying experience if you book a session with a reader you trust. Referrals from friends can be helpful.

If that isn’t an option, there are psychics in practically every town and city in the world. Many also offer spiritual readings by phone or online.

No matter what kind of reading you book, make sure it’s at a time when you aren’t dashing between meetings or rushed by a list of tasks.

Many people find a therapeutic massage helps reduce stress and clear their mind before a reading. Some people report that a gentle massage also helps open and clear your chakras.

For online or phone sessions, ensure that there’s no risk of interruption. Block and protect your time.

Know Your Questions

For the 48 hours before your appointment, think about the questions you want to ask. At first, allow all your questions to rise to the front of your mind.

Then choose the 3-5 that cause you the most anxiety, stress, or fear. Addressing these questions before others can help you gain a stronger spiritual foundation.

Try to make the questions as specific as possible. Also, keep them open-ended. Avoiding questions with yes or no answers helps you get the full benefit of spiritual readings.

Write your questions down on paper, not on an electronic device.

Create the Right Environment

Most in-person spiritual readings take place at the reader’s business. They will have taken care to make the environment restful and conducive to spiritual flow.

If you receive a reading by phone or online, you might need to make a few adjustments to the room. Here are a few tips:

  • Use natural light as much as possible
  • Keep any artificial light around eye level with lamps instead of overhead fixtures
  • Don’t make the room too dark
  • Add soothing aromas and those that promote easy breathing
  • Sit in a comfortable position, using cushions and a lightweight blanket for comfort and warmth

Whether you’re face-to-face with your reader or interacting with them remotely, leave all electronic devices in your bag or another room.

Clear Your Mind

For the 20-30 minutes just before your session, make a conscious effort to clear your mind.

Let go of your stress.

Forget about what needs to be done on that never-ending To Do list. Don’t worry about people who need or want your time. They will be fine for the duration of your session.

Let go of any self-critical thoughts. You’ll know they’re there if you find yourself using phrases such as “I should” and “I could have.” Use positive affirmations, if you struggle to remain in a positive and open state of mind.

Be gentle with yourself. Don’t try to shut down your mind. Instead, allow your momentary stresses and thoughts to evaporate. Some people visualize the worries of the moment floating out the top of their head and disappearing into the air.

Release Your Expectations

With your mind clear, you can then release your expectations. No two spiritual readings are alike.

So, whether you’re new to readings or have used this method of seeking spiritual clarity before, you don’t know what the outcome will be.

By releasing your expectations, you remain open to what you and your spiritual reader may discover or tap into during the session.

Letting go of expectation also prevents disappointment. Too many times in life we fixate on a specific outcome. Often, that’s not the outcome we get, which leaves us unsatisfied.

To be clear, letting go of expectations doesn’t mean you don’t have a goal. It’s good to know what you want to gain or remove from your spiritual self.

But you can’t always predict the path that leads to that goal. Releasing your expectations is about not thinking there’s one path. Often, we get better results when we take a road we didn’t see before.

Have a Notepad Ready

To get the most benefit from spiritual readings, you want to be present. You want to listen and be aware of your feelings in the moment.

But sometimes you know that capturing a particular phrase your reader uses is essential. Or you have a flash feeling or vision that strikes you as meaningful.

If you keep a pen and pad of paper nearby, you can jot down words and phrases without disrupting the flow of the session. Often, people will doodle to capture a sensation they want to revisit later.

Even if you are receiving your reading by phone or online, don’t type your notes. Writing and drawing by hand doesn’t disrupt your psychic energy the way using a keyboard or stylus often does.

Take Action

Now that you know how to prepare for a spiritual reading, it’s time to bring the idea to life.

Take your time finding the right psychic reader for you. But don’t delay the search. Something has brought you to this page. There is something you’re seeking, a curiosity perhaps.
