Curious about getting a spiritual or psychic reading, but not sure where to start? Before you google “psychics near me,” here are some things to consider.
1. Ask for Referrals & Get Multiple Perspectives
Finding the best psychic for you doesn’t have to be like finding a needle in a haystack. If someone you know has gotten an awesome reading, ask if they’d recommend that psychic reader for you. Explore readings with other psychics, too. Just because your best friend loved one reader doesn’t mean their reading style will resonate with you. And that’s perfectly fine!
Before you schedule an appointment, be clear about what sort of reader you’re looking for. A medium? A spiritual coaching or intuitive session? Someone to help you interpret a recurring dream? Ask your local metaphysical or psychic shop for insight on what their readers’ skills are, and who might be the best fit for you. Or, connect with a psychic reader you know and ask who they’d recommend you see. If what you’re looking for isn’t their area of expertise, chances are, they know someone who could work well with you.
2. Be Open
Showing up to an appointment and then resisting your psychic reading by closing up will just leave you and your reader feeling awkward and dissatisfied. If the thought of someone reading you makes you feel closed off, scared or determined to test your reader by withholding information or making them guess, chances are, you aren’t ready for a reading. If you would like to visit a psychic and are feeling this discomfort and resistance, it’s important to acknowledge these feelings and follow them back to their root so that you can get more comfortable with the idea of someone reading you.
For example, if you feel nervous about being read by someone, see if this lies in your resistance to know about your future, or if you are scared to hear something you don’t want to. Honest psychic readers conduct their readings with empathy, especially if and when serious and sensitive topics emerge. They aren’t there to judge you or push you to make a decision you aren’t comfortable with. Rather, they will offer you advice and validation so that you can begin taking crucial steps forward.
3. Come Prepared
Center yourself and get connected with what it is you’d like to accomplish from your psychic session. Sometimes coming to your reader and asking them to communicate “whatever they can pick up” can open doors and lead you and the reader to a deeper conversation about what you really need to know in that moment. In most readings, you’ll likely hear what you’re meant to, and if your reader is in tune with your energy fields, the information that’s presented will feel like a big confirmation. But if you have an idea in mind about what you’d like to know, share that with your reader at the start of your session.
Super specific questions like “Will I get back together with my ex,” or “Will I get the job I applied for this week” are sometimes counterproductive simply because these questions might not get to the heart of what you need to hear. Instead, consider questions like “What should I look for in a partner so that I can find someone who aligns with my goals and values, and will help me develop into a better partner and person,” or “What sort of career will make me happiest and help my personal development?”
