What Happens In A Psychic Reading? The most important thing to know is that a psychic reading is not scary! There is nothing to fear. A psychic reading is meant to bring comfort, hope and guidance. It is not a substitute for legal assistance, medical care, or a way to find out the winning lottery numbers or something to be used for the wrong reasons. Depending on the psychic and also what happens during the reading, it can last anywhere between a few minutes to a couple of hours. Readings can be draining on the psychic's energy so the average length of time for a good reading is usually from thirty minutes to an hour. Your psychic will greet you first of all and ask that you make yourself comfortable. You should switch off your mobile phone and try to relax. He or she will then try to "tune in" to your energies. Sometimes information starts coming immediately and other times it takes longer to make the connection. Very occasionally the psychic will be unable to make a connection and ask that you come back at another time. This doesn't happen often but it does happen sometimes. What Information Will Come Through? Sometimes you will receive astoundingly accurate information and other times it might not seem to make sense at the time of the reading. A psychic reading usually contains a mixture of information. Anything that does not resonate with you might have reference to a future event. The information which comes through in a reading varies widely. You might receive messages from spirit guides or from loved ones who have passed over. You might receive names, places or dates which are meaningful to you. Sometimes you receive information you already know, which is to reassure you that a connection has been made or that loved ones who have passed over are letting you know that they are still around. The psychic might give you words, pictures, scenes or a mixture of them all. No two psychic readers are alike and neither are any two psychic readings. After the Psychic Reading After the reading, you should allow yourself time to let the reading sink in. Don't try to overanalyze the information you received. After a few days you can review your notes or reflect on your reading. Some psychics offer follow up readings and most allow you to ask questions during the reading so they can focus on one particular area of your life you are seeking help with. How Often to Have a Psychic Reading Many readers advise having readings every six months or a year apart. There is very little point in having a reading a week after your last one, since the information will be the same. Neither should you depend on psychic readings in order to make decisions or live your life. They can give you information and help with the decision making process but you still have to make your own decisions in life. Whether you are trying to find closure on a past event or relationship, seeking advice and help or seeing a psychic out of curiosity, you should approach with an open mind and enjoy the experience.
