Psychic readings have been around since time immemorial. Ever since humans inhabited caves and faced ever-present dangers, they have sought to bring more control into their lives in the form of presaging future events. These events were of critical importance and often meant the difference between life and death. Over time those who showed particular aptitude became known as shamans, healers, witchdoctors, high priests/priestesses, midwives, herbalists, prophets and witches. Many schools of established religious thought evolved throughout the ages, who used rituals to foretell the future.
Many cultures have their own particular brand of acceptable psychic practice, for example, Jewish Kabbalah, Astrology, Paganism, Gnosticism and Reiki, where various rites, rituals and magic were performed. Even Christianity has its own version of psychic readings in the form of numerous prophecies and dream interpretations that came to pass. Egyptian Priests and Priestesses worshipped various Gods including Ra and Isis. They used oracles to foretell various events such as weather for the best time to plant grain, outcomes of war plans and even more personal issues such as marriage. Greeks worshipped in a temple called the Oracle of Delphi where the Priestesses of Apollo would go into trance channelling.
Many famous people have in one way or another contributed throughout history, to the concept of psychic readings. Daniel and Joseph in biblical times were well known for dream interpretations, Nostradamus for his chilling accounts of future wars, Leonardo Da Vinci for astrology and his accurate portrayal of future aircraft. More recently Edgar Cayce is known for his methodical documentation of the psychic readings he performed throughout his lifetime. Igor Sikorsky invented the modern helicopter after a dream he had when he was a teenager. He dreamt he was a passenger in a helicopter, some 50 years before it came to pass.
Psychic Reading Methods
In the last several hundred years, the term “psychic readings” has become generally known to cover a wide variety of predictive modalities. These methods evolved, from sometimes strange beginnings such as reading animal entrails and throwing chicken feet into the air. Gradually schools of advanced thought evolved including i -ching, rune interpretation, astrology and tarot reading, to name just a few. The method employed is just one part of reading and regardless of whichever method is used, there needs to be a space for divine intervention and the principle of randomness to occur. Many readers use established methods and some have developed their own. I have even heard of a man in Australia who reads from photos of people’s bare bums! Some people read tea leaves, some people read palms. I know of a lady who blows on a mirror, wipes off her breath and then clairvoyantly sees what is left behind.
It doesn’t really matter how it is done, providing that the reader goes into an altered state of consciousness where she/he can genuinely connect with spirit. A good reader can let go of her/his ego and channel or relate the information from spirit that sometimes appears in the form of a guide or angel. The integrity of the message must not be lost and the message has to be given in a form that the client can understand. A reader may have to use various methods of getting the point across in an understandable and practical format, whilst simultaneously being empathetic and staying connected with spirit.
Psychic Reading Benefits
Successful psychic readings can draw on past, present or future energies. They will also allay a person’s fears, offer comfort and reassurance as well as giving information and options to the client. Often a client feels better, having off loaded and vented difficult issues. Some readers also offer various healing modalities and there is quite a broad crossover between healing and reading. Often whilst having a reading with a healer/psychic, there is an exchange of spiritual and emotional energy that allows troubling energies to be released from the client.
Sometimes, spirit arranges for clients to call who are dealing with similar issues as the psychic reader. Working together for consciousness, the energy is amplified and greater healing can occur for both parties.
A good reader is a messenger of spirit who has the genuine desire to facilitate consciousness and assist the client in a caring and compassionate manner. A good reader offers a non-judgemental platform for enlightenment and will result in the client having an “ah ha” experience. The penny of consciousness will drop inside the client’s brain. He/she will understand what has led to the present situation and how he/she can deal with it in future.
Readings are energetic experiences; they are not cast in stone. At all times, a person has free will, which overrides everything. A person can choose more clearly what he/she is going to do in any given situation. A good reader will psychically pick up the energies around the person at the time and what is likely to transpire if that person continues on their current path. The client’s life is his/her responsibility and as such he/she can decide whether to continue on the current path or change direction and do something else.
A good psychic reading can be fondly remembered for many years, even a lifetime!
