WHAT IS A PSYCHIC READING?
A reading is not merely a means to find out what may happen next, but as a way of giving insight to one's personal power and freedom of choice. The future is a set of options. It is not enough just to see what may occur. Joan feels it is more important to assist others in learning to see the power within themselves in order to empower them to make more informed choices.
A reading is like a road map, it can show you what the next point of interest is. Or it can show you avenues to take to arrive at new destinations. It can show you alternatives that may not have been clear to you before, or offer a different perspective on issues you are facing. A reading can also be verification for what your higher self is already telling you, but your conscious self is too busy doubting, to listen to.
WHEN DO I NEED A PSYCHIC READING?
A reading can help when you face a choice or reach a point where there is a need to see the potential outcomes. You may need closure or guidance from your spirit guide or desire to see the options that lay ahead. There are times when we are in the midst of transitions in our lives and confirmation can be very helpful. Knowing that there is a positive option can lift our spirits and offer us a relief from stress and uncertainty.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A PSYCHIC READER?
It is important to find a reader you like, trust and whom you believe will tell you the truth. Talk to several readers. Ask questions. If the reading is not connecting with you at all, or does not feel true, trust your own inner self. You should never believe something that a reader tells you, just because you think they "know." It must ring true to you. To get the most out of a reading you need to trust first and foremost in your own higher self.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE PICKED THE RIGHT READER FOR ME?
How comfortable do you feel? Does the reader encourage you? Make you feel empowered? You are seeking someone who feels good to you. Someone you can easily talk to. Someone you feel you can trust.
There are no standards of practice in this business, and therefore the term “buyer beware” is important to remember. If a reading does not feel right to you, then step back and re-evaluate the information. Sometimes the reader may not be connecting with you, and other times they may just be having a bad day. No one is “on” 24/7. Even a good reader can have an off day.
Ask for clarity, and question when the information does not resonate with you. An ethical professional reader will not mind you questioning the information as they desire to empower you!
I have been a professional psychic medium for over 20 years and have heard every horror story you could imagine regarding unethical practices. It is such a shame to hear that there are people who choose to misuse a clients’ trust.
Remember, when the good of all is not considered, things go sadly awry. I work with the Light and assisting clients to work with positive energies to create change in their lives. It is YOUR life, and therefore the decisions you make have to be ones you are comfortable with.
As a psychic all I can do is present to you options that appear. You choose what you believe is the right path for you. Yes, I can show you the pitfalls, bumps in the road, and options that will assist you to make positive choices, but in the end YOU are the one responsible for your decisions. Understand that there are no wrong decisions, as whatever path you choose will teach you lessons and assist you in your life. Yes, there are easier roads to travel, and you will have to consider if you desire the easy way or the path less traveled that may have more challenges and learning opportunities ahead.
My reputation is important to me, and I take care with my clients, always holding their best interest to heart. I may not tell you want you WANT to hear, but will always tell you what Spirit feels you NEED to hear. Accuracy, Honesty, Integrity and Ethics are what I base my practice on.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM A PSYCHIC READING?
You should expect to be shown options, possibilities to allow you to more easily make your own choices. You should not expect the reader to tell you what to do or to give you all the answers. An honest reader will show you the paths presented and will encourage you to make your own decisions. An honest reader will not try to charge extra fees to remove "curses" or get rid of "bad luck".
When receiving information through a reading, you may wish to consider what is presented but always use common sense and your higher self before making final decisions.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A PSYCHIC READING?
It is in your best interest to be open to incoming information. Go with as few preconceived ideas as possible. Listen without judgment. Have a list of questions you would like information about. Remember you may not always get what you asked for, but you will get what you need. Just be open enough to listen.
Do not waste your reading on trying to play trick the reader. A psychic reader has wonderful gifts, but do not expect them know every nickname of every family member or what the color of your Uncle Harvey’s Cadillac is.
Understand that no psychic, no matter how good they are, will be 100% correct on each and every point. Free Will changes outcome, and what may be true today, may change in several months. Be open to allowing a reading to take shape and form. Sometimes it takes time for things to happen. Ask your reader how you can best work with the energy presented, and how you can assist in meeting your goals and desires.
WHAT IS MY RESPONSIBILITIES IN A PSYCHIC READING?
Your responsibilities are to be on time, willing and open-minded. You must also be prepared to use your own discernment to determine what feels right.
You are also responsible for using your common sense, and responsible for staying within the confines of your financial budget. No one can “take you” for thousands of dollars unless you give it to them. I have heard many stories from clients who relate tales of spending thousands of dollars on readings. If you are dissatisfied after several readings, try someone else. All readers are tapping into universal energy and therefore certain aspects of the readings will ring true through several readers. It is your responsibility to choose wisely!
SHOULD I ACCEPT ALL INFORMATION AS FACT?
Absolutely Not! A reader sees information as it filters through his or her own consciousness. The details are subject to the interpretation and prospective of the reader. Accept what is correct or feels correct to you and disregard that which is not. It is also important to recognize that a reading is based upon your current path. If you make other choices, then you alter your path, and consequently the outcomes shown in the reading. Many people choose to get periodic readings as they alter their paths by their decisions.
It is always a good idea to make notes during a reading, so that you can review it later. There is only so much information you can absorb during a reading, therefore notes help you to reflect later and you will be surprised how much more of the information resonates when you review it! Many times information that appears not to have meaning at the time of the reading manifests later, as a psychic reader is looking at the options that lay AHEAD, options you have not become aware of yet. By keeping notes you can reflect upon what the psychic reader has told you, and be prepared for when the events begin to take shape!
HOW DO I KNOW IF A READER WAS ACCURATE?
Most often, only time will tell. Ask yourself whether the reading was accurate regarding the readers information about your past, your personality traits and the people currently in your life. If the reading was accurate about those things, there is no reason to think it will not be accurate regarding future prospects and options.
During a channeling of your deceased loved ones, a psychic medium should be able to tell you something specific, that will help you connect with your loved one. It may not be their favorite song or a nickname, because those in spirit always have their own way of giving what information they feel is important. But there has to be something given that will allow you to know it is really them! There should be more to the channeling than just being told “they are fine on the other side” or “they love you”.
As a trance channel, I find that I take on the demeanor of the deceased, and often use their slang or jargon. Often I will be able to tell the client many personal traits and physical attributes of the deceased as well as personal messages from them. It depends on what they have to say and what messages they feel you need! They will often answer questions, and offer assistance to you as well.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A PSYCHIC READING?
Basically it is up to you how often you would like a reading. Readings can help as things change or new choices present themselves to you.
During a crisis, a client will often have more readings than usual, when it is needed to assist in a situation, such as someone going through a breakup, divorce, work related issues, or suffering a loss of a loved one. During those crucial times when clients require more readings than usual, I do offer discounts in order to assist my clients as they deal with their crisis. I will be happy to discuss your particular needs and work out a plan that benefits you!
Many of my clients have monthly readings and discuss different topics each time to assist in gaining a broader perspective of their ever changing lives. Some have a reading each year on their birthday to gain a perspective on the year ahead.
Asking the same question week after week does not assist you because it gives little time for anything new to happen.
Seeking psychic advice from several readers at one time, about a particular situation can also be confusing. Remember first and foremost it is important to listen to your higher self, not to keep getting readings until you find the answers you want to hear.
Distinguish your panic and insecurities from wanting to see the next step in your path. A good honest reader will not allow you to become reader dependent.
I feel a personal responsibility to all my clients and will tell them if I feel they are requesting too many readings than they need. I also work with healing energies, as a Reiki master, and use that to assist in balancing their chakras to alleviate the fear and panic of waiting for something to happen.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BECOME "READER DEPENDENT"?
When you find yourself feeling the need to seek out a reader for even the everyday decisions, readings have become un-empowering for you, and you may wish to consider taking a break from readings until major life events occur to warrant one or crisis situations occur in your life and you feel you need some guidance.
Life is all about finding a balance, and it is the same with psychic readings. It is your responsibility to use them wisely in conjunction with your higher self. It is a helpful tool, not a substitution for using your own common sense and intuition.
THE PSYCHIC CODE OF ETHICS
Every able healer or guide needs a code of ethics to stand by. Whether you are dedicated to the physical level of consciousness as a doctor, physical therapist, body worker, or the mental level as a counselor or teacher or the spiritual level as a religious leader or a psychic: The higher your standard of ethics is, the greater your abilities will become.
I will take full responsibility for my own energy.
I will set it and run it accordingly.
I will take the time to ground myself.
I will be committed to being in my Body experiencing the present moment. I will not undermine another by taking on their problems; I create no dependencies. Instead, by example, I will teach the laws of autonomy and free will.
I will not use my abilities to control, manipulate or program another.
I will use my clairvoyance to see the TRUTH for each person and not be mischievous or practice clairvoyance.
I will read the past and present with only a reference to the probable and possible futures of another; thus allowing the other the freedom to create their own future.
I will look for the way in which it is easiest for the other to have energy, and I will communicate to that point (positive intention)
I will have a strong heart connection with others, and accept each as an equal Human Being, subject to the respect that physical and spiritual Beings deserve.
I will allow others the privacy sacred to all SOULS.
I will devote my life to the purity and truth of my own essence energy, as well as helping others find their own purity and truth within their own hearts.
I will devote myself to the individuality of each soul, respecting that individuality in its search for health, well-being and ultimately God.
