Fundamental Aspects of Psychics Readings
Several questions exist that humans have no certain answers for. Who am I? Where am I going? What will happen to me tomorrow? Will I be successful in life in days to come? How can I make my life more livable and gratifying? Just as there are many such questions, there are also several attempts made to answer them and psychic reading falls in the same category. In psychic reading, a specific attempt is made to discern valuable information through finely tuned perceptive abilities. The natural senses of taste, instinct, touch, sound and sight are used extensively by experts to discern information and to answer various questions in the lives of people.
Different extensions of the human senses have given birth to various fields of psychic readings, including clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (feeling), clairvoyance (vision) and claircognizance (factual knowing). Today, psychic reading has been greatly associated with paranormal-based consultations done over the phone, at psychic fairs or in homes at some fee. While skeptics and controversialists wage their wars against it, psychic reading continue to attract several enthusiasts, believers and greater popular interest. Moreover, the techniques used by psychics keep advancing. However, the field still remains a pseudoscience with no known laboratory success and replication. It is therefore a cold reading technique that is only useful in the hands of psychics.
Different psychics use different types of techniques to discern information. Some may also use certain instruments to improve the efficiency of their techniques and practice. Indeed different types of psychic readings exist and professional psychics are only limited in the number of fields they engage in by their abilities, skills and levels of specialization. Popular readings include palm reading, astrological reading, tarot reading, psychometry, email psychic reading, and aura reading. Astrology readings have been in existence for several centuries and pre-date numerous scientific methods in practice today. While it does not necessarily require psychic ability, it has to be practiced as a kind of divination in which information is discerned according to alignments of planets, fixed stars, the moon and the sun.
Aura is supposedly a luminous and subtle field of radiation that surrounds the body of a person. While no scientific evidence has been given as proof of the existence of auras, psychics have the ability to sense, see, read and interpret the changes in individual auras and have done this for many decades. Cartomancy, which is the ability to read information concerning people using playing cards, is also a long-known type of psychic reading. In fact, tarot readings are a kind of cartomancy in which tarot cards are used by psychics at fairs and other settings. Tarot cards have become so popular and have been traditionally available in many chain bookstores, but new decks are also appearing in New Age bookstores today. The reading is both entertainment and engagement in psychic activity.
With the wider reach of digital technologies, distant psychic readings ( also called remote perception or traveling clairvoyance) have become ever more popular. The readings are conducted in the absence of the client as SMS, Chat, webcam, email, and telephone and letter readings. Telephone readings are usually live and the psychics and clients connect via telephone lines, but due to high costs of setup they have become limited to companies instead of individual psychics. SMS and chat readings are often done in quick question-answer formats while correspondence readings are performed through filling in specific forms, letters and emails. Webcam (video chat) reading is one of the latest forms of psychic readings that allow for real time and live interaction between psychics and their clients. Clients have the options of viewing, listening to and typing during the psychic consultations.
Palm reading (palmistry) involves the use of shapes, curves, wrinkles and lines of the palms to tell the future. The practice is so popular and can be practiced by individuals with no psychic abilities. Individuals are only required to master a certain body of knowledge in the field and to possess cold reading abilities in order to practice palmistry. While palm reading is not strictly psychic, psychometry is strictly so. The psychic must have the psychic ability to discern information just by contact with the possessions of another individual. During psychometric psychic readings, the psychics ask their clients a number of questions about their most valuable and favorite objects, including glasses, wedding rings, car keys and handkerchiefs.
