Qualities of a Psychic – By Penny B
Client and Psychic
When a Client chooses a Psychic it goes without saying really that the Psychic needs to be able to demonstrate excellent Psychic ability. Be able to tune into the Client’s situation and reasons for wanting a reading at that time. Be able to demonstrate with confidence that they have a true gift. Also have the ability also to set plausible influences for the future too.
Being able to tune to the past and present gives the Client confidence that the future influences are plausible and on point.
If the Psychic uses tools, be it traditional tools such as Tarot Cards, Crystal Ball or Runes Stone or even the lesser traditional tools such as Ribbons or Dice even, they need to be able to show that they are confident with those tools and they know their craft inside out and back to front.
What I want to look at most in this blog is the other qualities that a Psychic really needs to be successful within the Psychic Industry; what qualities do they need to possess for them to be able to stand out in an Industry where more and more people are becoming Psychic Readers.
When having a reading of course, you want your Reader to lead the reading to be able to tell you about you and your life. However, it’s important that your Reader is able to listen to you when you want to speak. The best readings aren’t all a one way street. The Reader needs to give the Client time to vocalise and they need to be able to listen to what the Client is saying. Within the Reading a Client can off load a lot of things that are on their mind as they can’t always talk to those people around them, or indeed they may not have anyone to talk to. So the ability for a Reader to be able to listen is vital
A Reader really needs to be able to empathise with their Client. They need to be able to truly understand that Clients situation and to really be able to able to get to grips with what the Client is hoping to achieve from their Reading. The ability to really be on the same page as the Client is necessary to be able to set the right options for the Client.
A Reader needs to be able to show their Client compassion. They need to care for their Client and demonstrate that they are a warm, friendly person. It wouldn’t matter how good someone’s Psychic ability was, if they are not a friendly person then Client’s wouldn’t want to have a reading with them at all, let alone want to return to them time after time. A Client needs to feel they have a friend in their Reader. Someone that they can turn to whenever they need to talk to someone.
When a Client has a reading they quite often have a million and one things on their mind and they can be feel quite overwhelmed with their issues. If a Psychic is not calm themselves then they lose the ability to listen and give their complete attention to the client. Therefore, it is never a good idea for a Psychic Reader to work if they are stressed out with their own issues. Also a Reading is about the Client, not the Psychic!
The idea of a Psychic Reading is to map out the options available to the Client. So the ability to be able to find the positives in what can seem to the Client to be able a negative situation is empowering to the Client. It’s important that the Reader doesn’t tell them what to do, but maps out the options to show the Client that there is light at the end of their seemingly dark tunnel. The ability to empower to the Client gives them the lift that they need to become determined to take the power back in their situation.
Clients consult Psychic’s for many different reasons and it’s important that they feel they aren’t being judged or criticised in any way . For example, the Client may be in a relationship with 5 different people. It isn’t the job of the Psychic to then tell the Client they must reduce it down to 1 person or to quote the moral high ground about how to conduct themselves in any way shape or form. If a Client feels judged in, it’s one sure way for them never to return to a Psychic regardless how well they tune in.
The ability for a Reader to be open minded is absolutely necessary. If a Reader has been working in the industry for long enough chances are they’ve heard it all along the way anyway. Sometimes though Clients open up to their Readers about all kinds of personal things, even details of their intimate lives! Therefore, the Reader has to keep an open mind that everyone is different, everyone wants to divulge different things about themselves and everyone has a reading for different reasons.
The Reading session is between the Reader and the Client only. Should the Client leave the reading and want to share the details with their friends or their family then that is up to them, it’s their Reading and they paid for it. However, it is not up to the Reader to go and share the session with their own friends or indeed other clients.
When seeking a Psychic Reader clients often don’t think about all the other things that make up a good Psychic. However, the most successful Readers will have all of these qualities as major strengths. Psychic ability without all these softer skills doesn’t really work.
