"The Truth About Psychic Readings"

I was looking around the web today. I wanted to see what kinds of articles were out about psychic readings, readings for sale and the current price for psychic readings in general. In so doing, I came across a very good article in a blog from GeorgeMinisteri.com.

Please know... I have not explored the site at all, just the post, and I found it very well written and useful, so I include it here. "The Truth About Psychic Readings" I hope you find it helpful.

I have published several articles on my site designed to help people have the best possible psychic readings. A few of my articles are:
Ethical Psychic Readings
What Happens in a Reading (Tarot reading in particular) and the most important article,
Ask Useful Questions

The importance of the questions cannot be emphasized enough. The question opens the door to the answer, and creates the best ground to see the outcome of situations. Sometimes, when reading forward into situations where there are others involved, and the matter is not under your direct control it is more difficult for most readers to be as accurate as they will be when answering question concerning a matter where you do have control.

It is always best to ask about things over which we do have control. To see the outcome of a situation where a group sits in judgement, it may be best to ask:

"Show me the best way to prepare for the meeting"
"Show me the best way to respond to criticisms."
"Show me the best way to ensure a successful outcome."

The best of readers cannot be accurate all the time, for this reason, medical questions are best left to the doctors, outcomes of court cases will be revealed in time and patience may be the best path.  (Asking if one has hired the most useful attorney is always a good question!)

When receiving a reading, it is best to enter the experience with an open mind, an open heart, and to be present with your reader as best you can during the process. We must always remember that the future is in a state of flux, and that your actions, thoughts and prayers can change your future.

I do recommend that you choose a professional in private practice who is charging a clear fee for the service provided. The article first mentioned is very helpful.

What is Clairvoyance? Enjoy a podcast talk.

Greetings all,

I am happy to present my first podcast for you. It is also available for play on iTunes, but I am able to post a link here.

What is Clairvoyance? A Public Talk by Ann George

The podcast is about an hour and a half, with lively questions and answers along the way. I was invited by the Institute of Noetic Sciences to speak to their group, and had the presence of mind to record it.

I seldom speak of my personal experiences as a clairvoyant person, so this is a good "cast" if want to know more about my journey.

The importance of the Question in Psychic Readings

Recently I have had calls from young women who are seeking some insights into their futures. Initially, it is difficult to help them because we are coming to the reading process from two very different points of view.

Here are a few examples of questions I cannot easily answer:

"Will he come back to me?"
"When will he call?"
"What does my future hold for me?"
"Will I get married?"
"How many children will I have?"

The basic problem inherent in all these questions is the passive nature of the world view that makes that question possible.

First, I take my clients trust in me seriously, and when I sit down to do a reading, I drop my agenda, my opinions, my values and personality in order to be fully present for the seeker and to be able to "find" the answer to the question. I strongly prefer to provide accurate answers to questions, and to be as specific as possible.

If you want to see the outcome of continuing to wait for your beloved to return to you, I can answer that question. I don't think it is really quite ethical to read the mind of another person who has not given me permission to access their thoughts, nor to see what that persons future actions may be.

The empowered and most useful question to ask would be "Show me the best way to heal my relationship, if possible." This question should let the you know whether or not too much damage has been done for healing to occur, and should reveal whether waiting for your lover to return will be helpful.

Further, just because a lover returns to you does not mean that the relationship will be successful, or will unfold any differently that it has in the past. If your partner has not changed, if you have not changed.... how then can two people have a different future, or a successful relationship.

Open ended questions about the future in general are also almost impossible to answer. The future is a result of action, both individual and group action. If you want to see the outcome of continuing your current career path, that question at least provides some ground, a context and a foundation to use when looking forward in time. Then we can see if studying the law, or massage therapy is a career path that will bring you happiness and prosperity.

That question also "opens the door of seeing" to find other areas where you might excel, as looking for the outcome of one path may lead to another that you prefer.

The primary problem with the question of "How many children will I have" is that most people hope to have children born of a marriage, or children born of love, rather than children born by accident. However, the actions of the mother have a powerful effect on this question. Really this is one question where a woman has almost complete control over the outcome of the situation.

It is very difficult for me to see past a decision you have not  made. However, and this may seem odd, if you ask to see the best way to a happy marriage with children, I can help you. If you want to know the best time to conceive a child, or if any children are waiting to be born to you, I can help with that question because we are working with the ground assumption that you do want children, and that you do want to have them with in the context of a marriage.

These little nuances of language really are more about setting your intent, and intent is everything. The why of what you want, and the amount of energy you are willing to put into it matters very much.

I hope these examples are not muddying the water too much. There may well be readers who are able to have a look at someone and know to the bone that the seeker will have two marriages, four children, and die at the age of 56. I am not of them.

There are so many variables that affect the future, that a sincere, well-thought out question will enable me to provide you a useful reading.  I realize that some people come for a reading, perhaps their very first one, without having any idea how useful they can be.

Many don't know that it is just fine to bring a list of questions to my table. I have published many articles on my website, as well as this blog, to try to help you see me views on the reading process.

If I were to distill my values..... I believe reading is a sacred moment, co- created by two people who are working to create the best  future possible. If that value appeals to you, please feel welcome to contact me.

Whether you choose to consult me, or another reader, I believe this article will help you have a more successful and accurate reading.

Clairvoyant Readings By Phone - Do Phone Readings Work?

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am happy you are able to take a moment to review this article, and I hope you find it helpful.

Often, when clients are calling to make their first appointment for a spiritual consultation, which may also be called a clairvoyant reading, a psychic reading or even a Tarot reading... they ask "Which is better, to read in person or by phone?"

Of course, if you do not live the the greater Jacksonville, Florida area, then a phone reading is your best choice. However, even if you live in the city, you may choose to work by phone as well.

Allow me to take a moment to explore the metaphysical reasons why a telephone consultation may be as good as, or in some cases more beneficial for the seeker than an in person reading.

The first principle is that we are never "reading the body." Your body is the vehicle that enables your voice to speak your mind, and my body, the vehicle that enables me to hear what you are saying. This union of minds is the foundation for a successful reading.

We are always reading the past, present and future outcome of  your question, or concern. Even if we are exploring questions that might address health concerns, for example "Show me the best path to optimum health and well-being," the mind contains all the information about your physical reality, so it is not necessary for the body to be present.

In some cases, it is actually easier for both the reader and the seeker to read by phone. For the seeker the benefits are: privacy, reading from the comfort of home or office, freedom of expression, and anonymity. As well, many people find local traffic trying at best.

The greatest benefit for the seeker (when scheduling with me) is that it is much easier to have a same day appointment, as well as to read earlier in the morning, or later in the day. Phone readings also cost a bit less per session as I have no additional rents to pay.

For the reader, the advantages are: being better able to offer my clients same day service and reading without distraction. Many times, clients give visual or verbal cues during the reading process indicating that I have "struck a nerve" or am "right on time" or in some other way am accurately describing their circumstances. These are cues I must overlook to continue to offer objective readings. These are some of the reasons why a phone reading may be better than a live reading for some clients.

To give the best possible reading, in my opinion, the reader must be absolutely free from any desire to please the client ( other than by providing accurate insights), and must be able to reveal the truthful answer, no matter what that answer may be.

As to the metaphysics of phone reading, one advantage is really that when speaking into the phone, you are speaking directly to me, and we have the ability to create a very powerful mind to mind connection.

*For first time clients, it is important to state that I am not able to read you against your will. It is your cooperation, and willingness to open to the process that allows us to achieve the most useful reading. It is rare that people call to "trick" or to "confuse" or even to "disprove" a psychic, but it does happen.

I begin all readings with the assumption that you come to the table, either physically or spiritually with an open mind and the desire to get clarity, insight and direction concerning your questions. Phone readings also make it easier to take notes, if that is your preference, or even for you to record the session if you like.

I am very happy to read in person, and do so by appointment at The Midnight Sun, 1055 Park Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32204. I am very fortunate to have such a lovely space there. Clients who have readings in the studio at the back of the store find the room spiritually uplifting and very pleasant.  I do require at least 24 hours notice for an in person reading and invite you to call my office at 904-993-7466 to schedule your session.

Please do not call the store for scheduling information as my schedule changes frequently, and it's much easier to schedule by calling me. If you get my voice mail, I hope you will leave a message, or, if you prefer, you may send an e-mail.

In person sessions also have advantages. Many clients prefer to have direct contact with their reader. Many like the process of choosing the Tarot they prefer to work with, and being able to see their consultant at work. There is a very special energy that is co-created when reading in person as both the seeker and the reader are working in harmony to open the Akashic record, and this mutual "pull" is a unique vibration.

Live readings also provide you the opportunity to bring an adult friend or family member with you during your session. For more information about the reading process please visit my website.

I hope to post an audio file from public talk given for the Institute of Noetic Sciences here in Jacksonville in the next few days. Please visit again.
