One of the things on my mind are tarot readings and people’s often unexpected reactions to what they hear. I’ve been informed that a lady I did a reading for was ‘offended’ by something I said. To tell you the truth, I remember the gist of the reading, but not absolutely everything that I said as I interpreted the cards. Let me explain how this process works for those who don’t know– for me, as I turn the cards and view the images, thoughts, perceptions, and pictures begin flooding my mind. You will get the best reading from me if I just open my mouth and start talking as I turn the cards and before the thought or image vanishes. This means that I can’t stop to weigh and measure every word that comes from my mouth during every minute of the reading. If I would do this, the process would not work, the rythm would be lost. I can’t pause and break my chain of thought to ask myself, “Would this person be offended if I tell them that they have a tendency to procrastinate to the point of ruining their own chance of success?”…Nope, can’t do it– if I read for someone, I will open my mouth and let it roll, whatever comes up with the cards will just have to come up. I wouldn’t be doing justice to the reading– or my client– if I have to weigh and measure how sensitive every stranger that sits across from me may be.
That’s just the way it is, and that’s just the way it works. Will you be offended by anything said in a reading? Odds are, no. But I won’t guarantee that this won’t happen. And here’s just a little food for thought…If someone is offended by something that’s said in a reading– what would they think about all of the things that go unsaid? (If only they knew!!)
A psychic reading is a very intimate thing, it allows the reader a peek at your psyche– all bare and pink and fresh, with every pimple and imperfection laid out in plain site. Just remember that your reader is on your side; your reader is not there to pass judgement. And just like a doctor in a war zone, most psychics can say ‘we’ve seen it all’.
