The Best Practices to Avoid Psychic Reader Pitfalls

Only four steps to avoid novice psychic blunders reveals the most crucial errors that newbie psychics often make. These mistakes can be easily avoided. Find out what mistakes may negatively impact your readings.

Firstly, in the beginning of my career, I had no way of knowing how to avoid common psychic mistakes beginner psychics invariably make. I had an excellent teacher. However, she wasn’t there when I gave my very first professional psychic readings.

My First Professional Readings

I clearly remember the day I did my first professional readings. my teacher and her partner were giving a psychic fair at their psychic center in downtown Phoenix. I’d set up my reading table, but because I was so nervous I hid, afraid to go out on the main floor.

My teacher finally located me in the back room with the supplies. After some words of encouragement from her, I slithered out to my table. As it happened, a friend of mine who had come down to the fair,  immediately sat down at my table. I felt that I was saved — at least for the moment.

After giving my friend a reading, someone else took her chair right away. It seemed I was off and running. As it turned out, I had one client after another for the entire day. At the end of the day, I counted my reading slips. I’d done it! And the best part? I’d helped many people that day and made money at the same time.

It Didn’t End There

For the next thirty years, I did professional psychic and eventually Mediumship readings alongside my corporate career. Some sessions were done at night and some I squeezed into my weekend. Along the way, I accumulated numerous vital tips and at the same time, learned from some disastrous mistakes. Now, I’m passing these valuable insights to others. 

By my calculation, I’ve done psychic readings and Mediumship sittings for more than 3,000 clients! Currently, I’m retired from doing readings, and am focused on teaching.

The world is much different than when I started out in the early 1980’s. And, there is much more positive exposure available to the psychics starting out today.

A lot of this positive exposure has occurred because of the inception of the Internet. Before the Internet, I personally had to rely on print advertising which was quite costly.

Now there is social media and YouTube for getting a psychic reading business started.

Before you get too far into your psychic career, you might like to know about some essential lessons I learned right out the gate.

Here Are Four Common Mistakes Some Novice Psychics Make:

  1. Not enough practice time going in. This shows in your readings.
  2. Relying too heavily on book meanings and not your own intuitive insights.
  3. Not having a clear and concise method for conducting your readings.
  4. Having the tendency to tell clients what they want to hear, even if the information is wrong.

Confidence and accuracy comes from practice, practice, and more practice. Because I’d begun doing readings for friends with a Tarot book in hand, I realized this made some folks uncomfortable. So, I stopped giving readings for a while and intensely studied the meanings of the cards.

Eventually, I resumed giving readings without the security blanket of my Tarot instruction book.

Over time, I began to realize that the cards spoke to me in an intuitive language of their own. This revelation was the beginning of trusting and relying on my intuitive insights without having to memorize exact meanings from a book.

Importantly, You can do the same. Learning card meanings from books, or cheat sheets, are a good starting point. However, the best and most accurate readings come from within us if we listen to our inner psychic senses.

In Conclusion:

It’s essential to have a clear idea of how to conduct a reading and avoid common psychic mistakes. Additionally, let your client know how you work and what to expect in the reading.

Do you use Tarot or Oracle cards? Or, do you begin a reading by doing some psychometry, astrology, or numerology? Do you connect with a client’s energy to give a reading without the use of divination tools? Whichever way you prefer to do readings, let your client know what to expect before the reading commences.

As mentioned earlier, don’t get into the trap of telling your client what they want to hear. This will always come back at you later like a boomerang nightmare.
