The road to finding a good practitioner can sometimes be a rocky one.
What Psychics Used To Be
Back in tribal times for most of humanity, psychics used to be:-
- Tribal Shamans
- Medicine Men or Women
- Bonesetters and surgeons
- Moon Maidens (American-Indian reflexologists!)
Like any area of work or profession that is unregulated, psychic and intuitive skills and abilities can vary in quality.
Readings can range from fairly bad, fake, through to reasonable — and in some cases even ground-breakingly good.
People who happen to have psychic or intuitive skills don’t always have good intentions toward their clients. Practitioners can be personally motivated rather than having a calling.
In both past and present times, spiritual readers have had bad intentions or can even be downright corrupt!
Just because someone has psychic skills doesn’t automatically mean that they have good values.
What Makes a Good Psychic In Modern Times?
Hopefully, modern psychics don’t get put to death these days, or be forced to give readings through threats or pain of death by their Royal owners.
Even so, the really good ones can still be vilified in modern society, and their reputations are bought into question by people who don’t agree with their methods.
It’s true that many people still don’t fully understand how psychics can get oddly accurate results. Sometimes people can find this ability frightening or even threatening.
Often, those who were powerful and focused psychics or healers in the past are still not acknowledged in present times as valid sources of human wisdom.
The truth is that many good psychics have contributed to our current body of knowledge related to personal growth, health, and well-being. Edgar Cayce is one such example.
Edgar Cayce (1877–1945) was a powerful medical intuitive who worked in the United States, mostly for free
He had a secretary who faithfully recorded about 14,000 of his readings. Many of his recommendations and ideas to support health for clients were revolutionary for his day.
In modern times doctors now use quite a few of his ideas and approaches to support health!
I took my first reflexology training course at the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach.
You can still visit the site today and see the healing hospital that Edgar set up for people.
Edgar devoted his life to supporting healing and health.
He even helped to keep his friend Thomas Sugrue in reasonable health so he lived longer.
Thomas Sugrue wrote the book of Edgar’s life — There is a River which I highly recommend reading to learn more about Edgar Cayce and his practice.
When Edgar was first giving readings, he had an experience where he fell into a very deep trance while being observed. The observers were a group of local medical doctors in his area. While he was in a trance, they stuck needles deeply into his feet to make sure he wasn’t faking!
What a terrible thing to do to such a wonderful, caring man, simply trying to share his gifts with the world.
So How Can You Get More Out Of Your Psychic Reading Today?
It’s important to find someone who is on a personal growth path of their own, and who has a strong calling to the work.
This will ensure that you are having your reading with someone who not only has a strong focus but also who can steer you in useful directions.
We can all get readings for entertainment purposes and there is nothing wrong with that. The most helpful readings are those that not only entertain but also inform, support, and give guidance.
Most modern readings fall into 3 categories:-
- Psychic Readings— for present life issues
- Mediumship Readings— to connect with a Loved One who has passed
- Past Life, or Akashic Readings— to clear feelings of being stuck, or held back. Akashic Readings can also help to explain strange psychic phenomena that occur and cannot be placed into our normal 5-sensory ‘box’ of perception.
In recent years, Human Design Readings have become more popular also. Think of this type of reading as a way to understand your present life energy in depth, and to be able to work with it more effectively.
Human Design Readings can also help explain your current Life Purpose.
What Type of Reading Will Be Most Helpful For The Questions You Have?
A psychic will be able to tell you things about your present life. They will also be able to discuss life choices and activities with you that you want to choose.
Psychics should never tell you ‘what to do’, but give you options and information so that you feel more informed about taking your next step. This can be anything from changing a situation through to dealing with a relationship.
Telling you what to do and then having you do it is unhealthy for everyone.
After all, you may not like the results if you are blindly following someone else’s advice. Karmically, a psychic advisor is in an unhealthy place if they think they know better than you and tell you what to do!
This is how people get hooked into more and more readings for more money — and ultimately find that they are still stuck with the same old problems they wanted to clear.
A good psychic reader will give you more clarity around choices, actions, and decisions you are working on making. They may help you see different points of view on relationship difficulties and help you to relax and focus on healthy choices for yourself.
Anything else is NOT a good psychic reading in my book. Just like accountants, hairdressers, or even therapists, you need to choose someone with experience, knowledge, and care as your psychic reader.
One of the simplest ways to do this is through a referral from someone else who has already had a good experience.
A psychic medium will be able to work with your connections to relationships through your personal energetic field, as well as work with your present life energy like a psychic does.
A medium can read about connections to your family, friends, and pets, whether they are presently living, or have passed on.
People go to see mediums because they are suffering because of their personal grief process, or they have questions about the person or people who have passed.
Good modern mediums in the West are able to help and support people through their personal pain and give them a sense of comfort, release, and peace about the dying process.
A good medium will be able to help you understand the Soul-level lessons you and a particular Soul were here to work with in this life. Their main job is to bring you comfort, by relaying information about the Loved One they could possibly not know any other way.
Examples Of Good Mediumship
- Relaying information about life decisions you are about to make, or family events that are happening, that no one else knows.
- Describing personal family photos or past family events that were very significant to the Loved One who has passed.
- Describing how the Loved One died and any important personal interactions that happened while you were with them around that time.
Anything relayed that could be easily found on the internet, or if you feel you are being led to give information, means you are NOT getting a good mediumship reading!
Past Life, Or Akashic Records Readings
Readers like me can give clients information that strongly resonates with them about a past life.
You may not believe in reincarnation (or any of this!) and that is perfectly okay with me!
Maybe one day we’ll discover new science that explains the link between human consciousness and what we currently see as the Akashic Field and the collective mind.
For now, though, the best explanation most researchers have come up with so far for this phenomenon is that we all have a unified form of Higher Consciousness (aka the Soul).
Our Soul is thought to live through many different lifetimes, gathering data, experience, and lessons along the way in order to grow itself and grow collective consciousness as a whole.
As we awaken and evolve on this planet, many more people are having awakening signs. These are the signs that they are noticing the Soul-level connection.
This is one of the reasons why people come to me for an Akashic Reading.
During Akashic Readings, People Can Learn About
- A past life that has a healing message for them
- Life Lessons they are here to work with this time around
- Their innate Soul-level talents, gifts, and abilities, which are unchanging, life after life
- How the Akashic Field is created, and how it helps us to evolve our consciousness as a collective race of beings
- How karmic patterns may be making us feel stuck, blocked, or restricted in our expression of Life Force Energy, and how to clear them
- Past life Relationships, and how that is affecting present life situations
- Connecting with your Spirit Guides — how to improve your intuitive connection and your connection to your inner world through Spirit Guide work
- Dreams they are having and what they mean.
- How to clarify both present and future decisions based on past Life Lessons.
Akashic Readings Can Also Help Us Learn About Different Dimensions
My opinion is that this level of work helps us to understand and shift to a greater awareness of 4D, or the 4th dimension, which Edgar Cayce used to refer to as ‘the realm of ideas’.
The more we evolve, the more we will understand that our thoughts and words (as well as our 3D actions!) affect our own well-being and the well-being of others.
Working with the concept of a series of lives helps people to understand the chain of choice and consequence that creates karma for each individual Soul.
In my worldview, some of the major issues humanity is struggling with at the present moment in time relate to our inability to let go of old ideas and habitual behaviors that no longer work for us.
Beginning to work on our own Akashic Records helps us to put that perspective into focus. We can identify our own repeating patterns and clear them from our personal lives for good.
For example, perhaps during a reading, you discover that present-life relationship problems are directly connected to past lives where you mistreated others in relationships. This type of discovery can create a lot of motivation for change!
How To Get the Most Out Of Your Psychic Reading, Or Any Type Of Reading
For any type of reading you are interested in having, I’d always suggest the following steps to get the most out of your investment of time and resources.
Get very clear about why you are having the reading and be prepared to listen closely
If you are having a curiosity reading, that’s absolutely fine, just focus on being present. Take notes if you want, and ask if a recording is available. (I always record my readings for clients).
Take some time to contemplate the information afterward. If you practice meditation, you can meditate on what has been discovered for deeper insight.
Are you having a reading because you have some deep questions or want to change your life?
If you have these hopes, you need to manage your expectations. Don’t come with unrealistic expectations of changing your entire world in one reading!
That puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on you, and on the reader too.
Take some time to contemplate the answers you have been given and come to the reading with as much openness and self-awareness as you can muster.
Readings are always part of a growth process. You may have a-ha moments, of course.
Just understand that the reader is not there to ‘tell you what to do’.
Your choices and decisions around the information are what will change your future world. No one else can do that for you, and you wouldn’t want them to. Just running around doing what other people tell you only creates more karma.
If you are connecting on an app, make sure that everything works as it should before you make the call
When you are paying for a reader’s time you are not doing yourself any favors by not getting ready ahead of time! Check all your computer, phone, or tablet settings beforehand.
Ask ahead of time if there is anything you need to do to prepare for the reading
Ask the reader if there is anything you need to do or to think about before you have your reading.
I have a document I send to clients clarifying this before their first reading. It’s always good to check!
Take these steps, and I believe you’ll get more out of your psychic or intuitive reading than you thought you could!
Lots of light to everyone.
