Providing safe psychic readings can be challenging, especially since you are working with other people’s energy, emotions and thoughts. Experienced psychics have a strong understanding of how important it is to keep your energy safe during a reading. Here is what most of them would advise when it comes to providing readings to others.
It is such a blessing to be able to provide psychic readings to people. Whether you use the energy of your guides and angels, speak to people who have passed over or use tools such as the tarot or any other method of reading there is something that all psychic readers need to consider and that is their safety and wellbeing.
Starting out as a psychic reader can be daunting as you need to prove your level of skill, find the confidence to deliver your messages and sit face to face with someone and tell them things that can’t be proven through research, science or logic. In fact, daunting is probably an understatement.
As it is so easy to get caught up in the delivery and accuracy of your readings it is just as easy to forget that you need to keep yourself and your energy safe to keep doing the work you’re doing. The people that you read for are important but without you paying heed to how you’re doing you can have the ability to read for others taken away from you.
Keeping yourself safe during psychic readings is hugely important if you want to stay mentally, emotionally and physically well. If you don’t then the consequences can be very disruptive to your daily life.
When I first started doing psychic readings for other people, I made many foolish mistakes that ultimately affected me quite a lot. Hopefully, my experiences can help you avoid the same situations though!
The first mistake I ever made was not cleansing, protecting and grounding my energy between every reading. I can’t stress enough how important this is! Without a quick cleansing, protecting and grounding practice I wasn’t resetting the energy within myself which then leads to psychic attack becoming a very real thing. This led to sleepless nights, weird health scares that turned out to be minor issues, strange onsets of breathing difficulties and feeling lightheaded or disassociated from my body often. All pretty nasty stuff that could’ve been easily avoided.
Cleansing, protecting and grounding your energy should be a constant part of your daily routine and more so on days when you are doing readings. If you want to keep offering psychic readings then you must have a steady practice and routine of this that works for you. (Here is one of my previous blog posts on grounding to help).
Another foolish presumption when I first started offering psychic readings was that I could work more for less to help others. I believed that I could put in an 8-hour day, 5 days a week like any other job and this would cover all the bills I needed to pay. Unbeknown to me at the time, psychic work is NOT a 9-5 job and each session requires the energy needed to get through what was half a day’s work in my previous job as a beauty therapist.
As a result of pushing this boundary, I was picking up every cold and flu imaginable. My auric field was taking on so much of other people’s energy and becoming severely drained over a couple of years that it was starting to break down my physical body. This coupled with my spirit guides stepping in to stop the nonsense ended with me having severe flu for 6 weeks. I couldn’t get out of bed, slept like a champion and lost movement in my legs for a couple of weeks. Again…very nasty stuff that I don’t recommend!
Following a set of ethics is extremely important too to keep yourself safe during psychic readings that you’re offering. Your ethics will provide you with a guideline that will stop you from creating bad karma and protect your mental and emotional health.
Keeping things karmically cool and balanced while you are working as a psychic reader is very important to sustain your abilities and practice. This is why staying honest with your readings while working to reduce the harm to others is significant. The Universe has a clever way of pushing people out who create too much karmic debt so you want to avoid that at all costs by keeping your ethics in check.
It is also a good idea to avoid doing psychic readings on topics that can affect you too heavily emotionally. For this reason, my ethics contain a clause that states that I won’t look into the sexual abuse of children. Not only is it a huge responsibility to provide an answer on something like that but it is also just horrible viewing and feeling something along those lines. It is something that I can’t get away from if I see it in a reading so I choose to avoid it as much as possible. You might have other situations that affect you too much and it would be a great idea to include these in your list of ‘won’t do readings on’ in the future.
Keeping yourself safe as a psychic reader is vital to your well-being and being able to provide your services for a long time. It also helps keep people that you read for safe as you won’t end up passing anything heavy energetically to them during the process.
Stay true to what your guides tell you and follow your intuition. If you feel as though you are compromising your standards then go back to the drawing board. Your safety should be the ultimate consideration when offering readings to others.
