The Psychic’s ToolboxAugust 29, 2014
Go ahead and expect the unexpected when you call a psychic advisor or medium. There is great diversity among psychic advisors and mediums. Each individual has their gifts manifest in unique ways and each individual has developed a psychic toolbox to help them gain a deep and clear understanding of the information they receive. While many of the psychic gifts involve clairvoyance, or the knowing of things that are unknowable, many advisors will use a variety of divination tools to delve deeper into their revealing insights.
Common “Tools” in the Psychic Toolbox
Tarot Cards—Some advisors turn to the tarot cards to get a firmer grasp on the details of your situation. Depending on the spread used, the cards can tell an advisor many aspects of your past, your present and your future path. Tarot readings can be very useful whether you are asking a simple yes or no question or need more in-depth information. A reading will reveal many layers of your situation, including obstacles that you face, people you may encounter and their specific characteristics or even locations and events to come.
Pendulum Readings—When you turn to your advisor for guidance while making a yes or no decision, sometimes a pendulum reading is appropriate. During a pendulum reading, your advisor will concentrate on a weighted pendulum that swings from a length of chain. Your energy will cause the pendulum to swing in different ways that your advisor will be able to interpret and apply to your reading.
Candle Readings—Often, psychic advisors and mediums will keep different colored candles burning around their sacred space. The colors of the candles all have different meanings and can provide protection and cleansing to the area. During a candle reading, a candle is held up and the advisor will look for information in the flames. Answers are also found as wax drips onto the paper and makes different designs.
Scientific Meters—In addition to traditional divination methods, there is also a wide array of scientific meters that are often used by mediums to detect the presence of spirits. These meters work in different ways, but often read the energy of the room and can give confirmation that there truly is a spirit nearby. Often these meters will be used at the same time as infrared cameras and other paranormal detectors.
Using a range of psychic tools is not ever a sign of weakness. Instead it shows willingness, and a gift, to get clear and accurate information. Many times your advisor will not force a tarot card reading or other divination tool on you unless they determine that it is necessary to get more complete answers. While you should always expect the unexpected during a reading, you should be careful requesting a specific tool unless your advisor specializes in that type of reading. Understanding what tools to use and when to use them is just one aspect of your psychic advisor’s gift. The best advice that we can give you is to trust that your advisor knows which tools are best for your situation.
