How to Prepare Yourself for a Psychic Reading
Approach your reading in a way that will help you get the most benefit.
So you’ve been thinking about getting a psychic reading?
If you’ve never had a reading before then like most you’re probably a bit on the skeptical side while at the same time nervous about who and what will come through. There are a few things you can do to prepare for your first psychic reading and a few things you can expect!
A psychic reading is not something that you should go into on a whim. Rather, you should spend some time before your reading preparing yourself emotionally and spiritually for the experience ahead of you. One element of this preparation is coming up with questions that you would like to ask the psychic or psychic medium.
This clarifies your expectations and your motivations for the reading, but also helps to structure the reading so you can get more meaning out of it. Knowing what questions to ask and how to ask them helps you to approach your reading in a way that will help you get the most benefit.
Ask Your Psychic The Right Questions
Avoid Overly Simplified Questions
While you should expect to answer questions that are asked by your psychic or psychic medium with a simple “yes” or “no” in order to avoid sharing too much information, these are the types of questions that you should avoid asking during your reading. Not only do these overly simplified questions give you very little in terms of qualification of the reader’s abilities, but they can also create even more questions than you already have. Getting a “yes” or “no” answer leaves you wondering why that is the answer you got, or worried because it wasn’t the answer you wanted, or falsely comforted by getting the answer you wanted without knowing the important reasons behind it.
Your questions should be open-ended to encourage a more detailed answer that allows you to interpret intuited information. The answers should not be a firm end, but rather an opportunity for you to explore concepts and ideas. When asking your reader questions remember that the purpose of your reading is to guide you, not to tell you what to do or why.
Don’t Look for Specifics
While a psychic or psychic medium may have heightened abilities to sense or predict things, they cannot truly tell you the specifics of how your life will unfold. Asking questions that are “when”, “where”, or “who” motivated will only leave you with an unsatisfying answer that could cause you to make decisions you wouldn’t generally make just because you were trying to fulfill the predictions in a way that you want.
For example, if you ask how you are going to meet your future spouse, your reader could be able to tell you that you will meet at work. This answer, however, could leave out the important information that you will be changing jobs, that your future spouse isn’t going to be a coworker, or that you will hate him upon first meeting.
Focus on Your Behaviors
Rather than looking for simple answers or being told exactly what you should do, focus on questions that guide your behaviors. Utilizing your own perceptions and intuitions is always better than relying solely on the advice or perceptions of a psychic or psychic medium. This allows you to develop your life based on your own needs and feelings rather than forcing decisions and situations based on answers that are up for interpretation.
You Hold the Power
Regardless of what anyone says, psychic or not, we have the power over our own future. The decisions we make and our actions sum up for what will happen to us, and there is no one who can say otherwise.
Even though it may seem that visiting a psychic reader means giving up control over ourselves and the future, it isn’t the case. In fact, what these readings may help us is to find our path, release any unpleasant incidents that may have occurred in the past, and look forward to a brighter future. This is why,it is important to be sure whether you are ready for a reading.
Do’s and Don’ts for Your Psychic Reading
» Keep a clear head. Leave all your worries at home, think positive, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. The magic in all of this is that your positive belief towards life, yourself, and the unknown future. I know that many times, thinking positive is out of the question, but that doesn’t mean you have to bring negative thoughts to upset yourself and affect the decisions you make. Remember, there are “possibilities” in “impossibilities”.
» Have your questions ready before you visit the reader. You don’t want to be at loss of words during your session because you’ll only be wasting your and the psychic’s time. A good way to be prepared is to write the questions / concerns on index cards, so you don’t get flustered and forget why you visited the psychic in the first place.
» Remember, psychic readings take time and can leave you feeling vulnerable and emotional. So if you can, schedule your appointment on the day when you don’t have a lot to do, work or at home. After the reading, you should try to find some alone time and think about what the reading said, and you can incorporate it into your life.
» Clarify any doubts you may have. It’s better that all your concerns and queries be cleared at the reading. Spending unnecessary time and money on the same questions is pointless. You don’t want to dwell on the same issue(s) again and again.
» Expect that the psychic will make the decisions for you. What a psychic does is give you a brief look at what you can expect in the future, if you made certain decisions. If you are looking to seek advice as to what you should do about a particular situation, then you’re taking this whole thing in the wrong light. What you should expect are insights, guidance, and information that can help you make a better decision. You are commander of your life, no one else.
» Keep quiet and wait around during your session. If the psychic is giving some information about yourself, your past, or anything that is vital, do let him/her know. If there are any discrepancies, don’t just sit there and let the psychic move on. The reading is for your benefit and you want to make sure that you get the most out of it. There can be times when the psychic might go to a different path, talk about some other topics that he/she may feel are critical and strong enough to talk about. Don’t take this as the wrong thing and see to it that your questions are being addressed.
» Visit a psychic if you are going there just to prove them wrong. This will accomplish nothing. Many times, people who are skeptic towards psychic reading tend to withhold information about themselves and want to see if the psychic can somehow know it. You are spending your money and time (also the psychic’s) for the session.
» Take any alcohol or drugs before your reading. It is advised that you are absolutely sober, for at least 12 hours before your reading. If you want your psychic to read you properly and accurately, nothing should hinder it; you need to have a clear mind.
While understanding and knowing how to prepare for a psychic reading, rest assured that whatever happens during a reading, it will remain confidential. So, even if there are certain things you and the psychic talked about, may be embarrassing or you would like to keep to yourself, you don’t have to worry about the information leaking out.
If you are confused about what questions to ask the psychic reader, focus on what you want out of your life. Are there any issues regarding work, home, love life, or finding a spiritual path. When you think in these terms, searching and discovering answers will be much simpler.
Examples of General Questions
Here are some general questions on general topics such as life, relationship, finance and work that you may want to use in order to help you formulate furthers that will delve deeper into such topics. Remember that these questions are meant to serve as jump points for discussion, and will help your intuitive zone in and focus on one specific aspect of your life.
- Why am I not happy with my life?
- How can I live a better life, full of purpose and happiness?
- Is the person I’m currently in a relationship with “The One”?
- How can I make my current romantic relationship even better?
- How will I improve my financial situation?
- Am I on the right career path?

If you have other concerns and questions that aren’t on the list, feel free to add it to the list of questions that you want to ask your psychic.
There are many very good, ethical, fair, and honest mediums and psychics, and the service which they can render to the seeking soul is, truly, priceless; but you’re reading will be more satisfying if you do your part to prepare your emotions and your questions.
Getting on the road to making yourself a better person is the first step to improving your situation and views, so it’s great that you’re taking steps to self-improvement.
