There are publicly available chat rooms for people to exchange ideas and chat with psychics. This can be a good way of assessing whether you would like online readings with a particular psychic. Some will do a free sample reading in a chat room so you can decide whether you would like to book a private reading.
There are usually guidelines about use of language and expressing inappropriate views - some chat rooms are censored. Some public chat rooms have a subscription fee to join - these may be used for training or other purposes.
It is possible to have an online psychic chat reading - this means that you can type in questions which the psychic can answer online. This is a much more interactive form of online reading than having a reading emailed to you for instance. Usually, after your payment has been processed, a secure chat area will be set up for you and the psychic, so you can have a private reading in chat area no one else can access.
To set up this service you may be prompted to download the Java runtime environment if you do not have it already installed on your machine. Clicking Yes should not cause any problems. Other than this, no special software is required to use chat technology.
When booking an online psychic chat reading, check what happens if you lose your internet connection, for instance, can you log in again and continue your reading?
Chat rooms are not the only way of communicating with psychics online. Some psychics chat via message boards where you can post a message and other users will reply. Some relate to specific topics such as where is saddam hussein or dream interpretation. This can be a good way of getting psychic advice, or following a thread on a topic you find interesting. To post or reply to a message, follow the instructions given. Some discussion groups may require you to set up a user name and password.
