The following covers basic information on the most popular methods employed by psychic readers:
Some psychics use channelling or work with spirit guides, psychometry, automatic writing or crystal healing. Mediums, or channellers, are in contact with the dead. People go to them when they have lost someone to get confirmation of life after death. Psychometry involves touching an object belonging to someone and picking information about them. This can be useful for finding people, or pets. Automatic writing is messages from the dead in written form. The psychic sits with a piece of paper and a pencil held loosely in their hand, allows their mind to go blank and then starts writing but not consciously. Psychics can link into your chakras, the seven energy centres through the body, or read your aura. Aura readings involve sensing the colours emanating from your chakras around your body and noting dark or cloudy colours, breaks or spikes and these can indicate problems.
Apart from contacting the dead, psychics cover other areas such as career, life path, finding a soul mate, health and personal development.
