What is a Psychic Reading?

A psychic reading is a specific attempt to discern information through the use of heightened perceptive abilities; or natural extensions of the basic human senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and instinct. These natural extensions are claimed to be clairvoyance (vision), clairsentience (feeling), Claircognisance (factual knowing) and Clairaudience (hearing) and the resulting statements made during such an attempt. 

Even though Runes, Tarot, and crystal readings involve psychic powers, most of the time when someone asks for a psychic reading to be done it is to be done without any tools or aids. Another term is straight reading. One form or another is not better; it is a personal choice made by the reader how they communicate. Tools like Tarot provide a barrier between spirit and reader; whereas a straight reader allows an entity or spirit guide to have access to their mind directly. This needs a lot of protection and a strong solid mind to discern if trust should be given to that entity or spirit guide. 

Sometimes a reader will ask for an item of yours or the person you are asking questions about. From grabbing the item they will be able to tell you something about the person who handled it. You do not have to bring something to a reading, it is just one of the many things that can prove useful to the reader to help you find your answers you are looking for. Occasionally for clarification a straight reader might use one of the various divination tools like rune stones to clarify a complex thought. Many answers are not cut and dry producing a yes or no; they get more complex and need to be fleshed out more by the reader asking a few questions. Sometimes when the question is asked by the sitter, they are at a crossroads which could make the answer go either way. At this time the reader can help you plan your course.

Most readers are not scams. In fact if you are not connecting to your reader in 5 minutes, most of them will refund you your money. This way neither of your times are wasted. So most readers are highly gifted psychics. The question comes in is; do you want a magician who can guess your grandfather's middle name or the one who can give you good guidance? Some people come to readers just for entertainment; others for advice. Readers are not all trained psychologists, but some are. For legal purposes you can not act on their advice more than you would your bartender, barber, or hairstylist. You have the final say how to act on the answers you are given. If your reader is making sound sense, then take it into account when you choose how you will act.

The other important thing to know is an old Norse principle. They believed in the Norns as in Nuremberg (the city of the fates). The three sisters: Past, Present, Future.  One pulls the skein of your life, the other measures, and the last cuts. The last sister for future is called Skuld; our word should comes from her. The prediction should happen they would say. For it is an algebra equation; A + B=C. Change A to D and you will have a different answer. If anyway you change your perception of the past and/or you change how you act in the present; your future will change. Remember in quantum science the mere act of observation changes things on the atomic level.

So come with an open mind. Get a few readings from people before you choose one you will go to regularly. Regularly could be once a week or ever three years when you need one.  Everyone is different. Also remember that to get the most for your money, allow the reader to talk equally as you do; they just might have some good advice. Otherwise you just have an expensive listener, and those you can find free on a park bench.

What is a Mediumship Reading?

Mediumship is the practice of certain people—known as mediums—to purportedly mediate communication between spirits of the dead and living human beings. Humans have been fascinated with contacting the dead since the beginning of human existence. Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife. Several different variants of mediumship exist; arguably the best-known forms involve a spirit taking control of a medium's voice and using it to relay a message, or where the medium simply "hears" the message and passes it on. Most mediums hear the message or interpret symbols they see in their mind.

In Spiritism and Spiritualism the medium has the role of an intermediary between the world of the living and the world of spirit. Spiritualists classify types of mediumship into two main categories: "mental" and "physical"; we will be looking at the mental.
  • Mental mediums purportedly "tune in" to the spirit world by listening, sensing, or seeing spirits or symbols.
Through mental mediumship spirits communicate with a medium by telepathy. The medium mentally "hears" (clairaudience), "sees" (clairvoyance), and/or feels (clairsentience) messages from spirits. Directly or with the help of a spirit guide, the medium passes the information on to the message's recipient(s). Some mental mediums can go into a  trance and remain conscious during a communication period, wherein a spirit uses the medium's mind to communicate. The spirit or spirits using the medium's mind influences the mind with the thoughts being conveyed. The medium allows the ego to step aside for the message to be delivered. At the same time, one has awareness of the thoughts coming through and may even influence the message with one's own bias. 

When a medium is doing a "reading" for a particular person, that person is known as the "sitter". All you have to do is open your mind to be receptive to the reading. Usually you have 5 minutes to tell the reader if you are connected to the reading or not; if not you can almost always ask for your money back. Please, don't just nod your head if you are not satisfied. That way your time and the mediums time is not wasted. Not every medium can read everyone. 

If there is a connection and the medium is proving to be useful and you understand what they are talking about go on. Whatever you hear from the medium is not written in stone, they are only communicating for another who once was as human as you are. Most of the time shortly after death one's personality does not change that much, but in time their spiritual growth continues even in the afterlife. Sometimes by communicating to them, you can help them on their journey. Also many people go to mediums just for clarification that they have been talking directly to the spirit all along. Good friends and loved ones can tend to say goodbye in your dreams before you even get the phone call informing you. This is quite common. 

If you are already talking to those who departed, then the medium can act as a counselor working with the living and the dead to hep both of them get closer to attaining bliss. Just remember that daily conversing with those on the other side can be done just between you two and leave the medium to the times when you believe both of you need help from a third party.

The Role of Your Feelings in Fullfilling Wishes

The strange and wonderful thing about your subconscious mind is that it always accepts as true what you feel to be true. The key words here are feel to be true. Your feelings allow your subconscious mind to spring into action. The way to understand something spiritually is through experiencing it. Your feelings are the tools you have for experiencing your subconscious mind and making it your material world reality. Your mission is to get to that place of assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled, even if the wish has yet to materialize in your physical reality.

Impacting Your Subconscious Mind

1. The subconscious mind responds to suggestions. You can reprogram your subconscious mind so that it goes on its accustomed role of autopilot with mental and feeling images from yourself. Talk to this automatically receptive component of yourself, telling it that you are unlimited, and that you believe all things are possible. Fill it with images of you being all that you dare to become. Go to a quiet place and feel in your body what it would feel like were those thoughts in your imagination your present reality.

2. The subconscious mind possesses the power to manifest physical reality from thought. Every object and circumstance in this world is representative of a mental thought. All that now exists was once imagined—such is the power of the subconscious mind. But in order to partake of this incredible powerhouse of creation that you are, you must be able and willing to experience within yourself—in your mind—that which you wish to manifest. Thoughts become things when you feel them, and are able to impress them upon the subconscious mind, which will then take over.

3. Love is the feeling you must learn to assume. Subconscious mind is really a piece of the one mind, and you and I are living in that mind. This universal subconscious mind is the first cause, and the stuff from which all things are made. This thingless thing is really love. When you feel it, truly feel it within as your private inner awareness regarding what you would like to manifest, you gain the power of creation.

When you experience anger, frustration, fear, doubt, worry, stress, and so on, ramp up your love and immerse those negative feelings in a container of pure love. Simply choose to feel good because every moment of offering love brings your little sliver of subconscious mind into harmony with the all-creating one universal subconscious mind that is defined as love.
I trust I’ve awakened within you the awareness that your feelings play a huge role in your becoming a God-realized manifesting being. And remember that picturing the future without assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled is nothing but futile daydreaming.

Three Suggestions

— Practice feeling a thought that you have inserted into your imagination. Remember that a feeling is what you feel in your body as you contemplate what it is you wish to manifest or who you would like to become. Close your eyes and experience what that feels like in your body. Work with sensations that are not only your experience of what you are imagining in your body but are triggers that assist you in moving from a thought to a hardened physical reality.

— Whatever feeling you are attempting to notice in your body regarding your wishes or desire, bathe it in love—the synonym for God. Imagine what you want. Imagine and feel that love as if you were now in possession of it. Continue doing this using love, until your desire actually belongs to you. During this process remind yourself that the more love (God) you offer, the sooner desire becomes reality. Look into your mirror fearlessly, saying, I not only love you—I am love.

— Acquaint yourself with the subconscious mind. Your piece of subconscious mind acts on what you program into it so that it becomes your automatic mind acting habitually. Decide on a habit that you would like to be automatic—being generous, for example. Tell yourself, I am a generous person. Give something away in a spirit of generosity, even if it’s only a small coin or a word of encouragement.

The more thoughts and actions you practice around your new I am, the more the subconscious mind will react in kind until eventually it will act in generous ways out of a new habit that you’ve created. You have the power to impress upon the subconscious mind any I am of your choosing.

Be Generous

“Be generous. Give to those you love; give to those who love you, give to the fortunate, give to the unfortunate - yes, give especially to those you don't want to give. You will receive abundance for your giving. The more you give, the more you will have.”
― W. Clement Stone

This is not money or presents we are asking to give. Give of yourself the understanding that most people need. You will receive it back ten fold.

Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology.

1 - The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire.

2 - The practice of humility can be utilized in your life by those that can understand how the beginning began. When utilized, through growth of spirit and soul, Or when it is needed.

Humility brings you down meaning “grounded.” If you are humble/grounded, you will be able to understand, and find the answers.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living some one else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
― Steve Jobs

Wonderful words of advise. Believe in yourself and most of all believe that Spirit is there helping. Your own intuition is the most awesome part of creating.
Take the plunge and believe in your own hearts desire.
