Psychic readings: having a reading with a psychic

What aids are used during psychic readings?
Cards are the main aid for psychics e.g. tarot cards such as the Tarot of Marseilles, spot cards and many other games through which the psychic can read into you.
The psychic might also use a pendulum, your date of birth (for the purposes of numerology), or even rarer, they might not use any aids at all to perform the psychic reading. In this case, the psychic might ask to wear your ring if you have one so they can better sense your vibrations.
Should I explain my situation before the psychic reading begins?
You don't have to say anything to a psychic, quite the opposite. The psychic needs to focus on you and evaluate your energies, they must be capable of seeing which moment of your life you're in.
The psychic should give you an outline of your past and your present, determining your difficulties, your desires and your relationship status (married or single). During the psychic reading, they should "place" you as a person and home in on your personality.
Once these initial steps have been taken and once the psychic senses that you're "in tune" with the first reading they have given you about your life and about what they see, you can then ask the psychic the questions that matter to you.
A good psychic
A good psychic isn't one who tells you that at quarter past 2 next Monday afternoon you're going to meet the man of your dreams. If that's the case, you've been had.
A psychic is a spiritually aware person who is fair, honest and loyal and doesn't play with people's emotions or feelings. Through psychic readings, they give an enlightened vision of the client's existence, explaining for example the reasons why they're the way they are, what line of work suits them most, the personal path that has been mapped out for them. To an unemployed person, for example, the psychic should be able to say in which sector they should focus in order to get a job, whether the job will suit them, etc.
A psychic picks up on ambiances and uses their empathic abilities to give precise descriptions of the man you love, the man you long for or the man you're going to meet. They SEE what you can't yet see and what's in the process of subtly taking place in your existence.
A psychic doesn't know everything
Psychics don't know everything and they can make mistakes, especially concerning time and dates because they see time as a continuum.
Psychic readings cannot reveal everything
Illness and death remain very dangerous areas to cover in psychic readings and the psychic must be very prudent. They should never reveal the death of someone because the death that they see might be a symbolic death e.g. the death of a situation, making way for something new.
A psychic reading is a source of advice
A psychic should nevet tell you what you must or mustn't do, it's up to you to decide, you have the free will to make your own choices. The psychic is an advisor, nothing more.
Psychic readings give you a different vision of your life, a vision that you hadn't contemplated. A psychic can give you some starting points but you're the one who opens the doors. In no instance should the psychic back you into a corner or make you dependent on their readings.
How long does a psychic reading last?
Psychic readings usually last for about an hour, sometimes more, sometimes less.
How much does a psychic reading cost?
Ask how much the reading will cost when you make your booking, and make sure you don't get changed any more for your reading, even if the prices go up after you made the booking.
The cost will vary according to the psychic's reputation and location but face-to-face psychic readings can vary from £20 to £100. Do some research before choosing one!
Keeping some distance with the psychic
The psychic shouldn't be friends with the person they're giving the reading to, they should maintain a distance with the client so they can continue to provide an accurate psychic reading.
If they get too close to the client's intimate thoughts and emotions, they will no longer be able to see for him (just like a therapist), making psychic readings a waste of money.
