Before deciding if a psychic reading for love related issues could really help you, you need to know what one is and how it works. Read on to find out more.
What is a psychic reading?
Psychic readings are nothing new; they’ve been around in different forms for centuries. Our ancestors used to use the night sky to divine their future, and various cultures have attempted to communicate with spirits of departed loved ones since the dawn of time.
With the evolution of technology and the media, psychic readings have become more easily accessible to all. They may come in different forms, which we will discuss later in this article. Often a medium (someone who has developed their connection to the metaphysical world and is able to communicate with spirits) will be asked to look into someone’s soul to determine if there is a certain course of action to be taken, any gifts yet to be discovered and used, or if there are blockages holding the person back from reaching their full potential. Getting a reading is meant to be a healing, positive experience where a person may feel connected to lost loved ones and receive much-needed guidance or comfort.
Many people would argue that as a society we are gradually awakening to new or increased spiritual possibilities. Maybe it’s because we feel threatened by so much uncertainty and trouble around us. Or maybe it’s simply because we’re evolving to become more spiritual. Whatever the reason, it would seem that more people than ever are reaching out to mediums for spiritual guidance. It’s no longer a taboo subject. There are even celebrities who promote turning to the psychic world for help, including Khloe Kardashian, Lil Kim and Amber Rose.
Are there different ways to get a psychic reading?
Yes! Thanks to technology, there are many different ways to get a psychic reading. You might be someone who prefers physical interaction, so a palm-reading may suit you the best. Or maybe you feel embarrassed about getting a reading (even though there is no need; did you know that globally more than 25% of people believe in psychic abilities?) so you would rather get a reading online or over the phone. Whatever your preferred style, there is a medium (pardon the pun!) to suit everyone.
Palm readings, or palmistry, likely began in India before spreading to China, Tibet and beyond. Did you know that Aristotle mentions palmistry in his work? During the Middle Ages, the practice was almost stomped-out due to witch-hunting but gained popularity through the Renaissance and then Enlightenment eras. Carl Jung brought new intrigue to the practice during the 20th century, and palm reading has remained popular ever since.
Palmistry is essentially the notion that your hand is intricately connected to your soul, and that so much of your life (talents, past relationships, even destiny) can be discovered by reading it carefully. A palm reader will look at the pattern of the lines on your hand, length of your fingers, and search for evidence of particular ‘mounts’. If you are interested to know about your love life, a palm reader will pay particular attention to your heart line, located at the top of your palm connecting pinky to the pointer or middle finger.
Today we are fortunate enough to have a variety of modes of communication at our disposal, and the psychic reading industry has benefited from this.
Some psychics will offer their services over the phone. This allows the client to feel the security and comfort of being in their own home, which is very important if they are to feel confident in sharing their private struggles and affairs with a stranger. Let’s face it; not many of us like opening up about the intricate details our love lives! A phone reading will likely involve the use of tarot cards. A medium will attempt to divine your future by asking the questions you’d like resolved, then by drawing and interpreting the answers from the cards.
An email reading may be in your interest as there is no fear of having it intersected by someone else in your household. You can also keep an email indefinitely, so you can refer back to your reading as often as you like if it brings you the guidance and comfort you are seeking.
If you are looking for guidance in your love life, the psychic may ask you to provide the name and date of birth of your partner (or crush) as they will likely incorporate the practice of numerology in their divination. At its simplest form, numerology is the idea that everything can be broken down into numbers. These numbers can be used to ascertain certain insights into our personal lives.
Crystal ball readings
Crystal balls have been used for centuries to divine the future. Looking into a crystal ball is called ‘scrying’. A clairvoyant will use the ball to scry for images and visions or attempt to communicate with the spiritual realm. They will be looking for the clues or information they can relay back to you to help you along your spiritual path.
Can a psychic reading help me with my love life?
Whether you try a tarot or astrological reading, or any of the other methods outlined in this article, the guidance you are looking for in regards to your love life might be easier to get than you think. Maybe you’re looking for a clear ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when it comes to the compatibility of a potential partner, or maybe you’re looking for some clarity on yourself which you can then carry into a relationship.
Many people are dubious when it comes to tampering with the supernatural, but many have also experimented and found it beneficial. Many people still refute the idea that there is even a spiritual world, but up to 60% of the UK’s population claim to have seen a ghost at some point in their lives. This means that there are more of us who are open to spiritual possibilities than you might think.
Find a style of reading that suits you, do your research, prepare to be honest, and then go into it with an open mind. You never know what you might discover with a psychic reading for love related matters.
