Psychic readings are an important tool in the psychic's arsenal for gathering information.
Doing psychic readings is like following a trail: the trail can be narrow or wide, long or not, a wild trail or a beaten path, winding or straight, filled with treasures or with dangers. You can take your time traveling it or run quickly to your destination, but the most important thing is to keep your eyes open and not stumble in the dark.
For successful psychic readings the psychic has to have three things: clarity, focus, and discernment.
Clarity grants entrance to the psychic realm and enables the psychic to do psychic readings. The focus of psychic readings creates the goal and the drive to move forward. Discernment is the navigation of psychic readings; it determines the direction to take.
The final component for successful psychic readings is experience - practice makes perfect. If the psychic can master clarity, focus and discernment, then these underlying mechanisms for psychic readings can be delegated to the subconscious and doing psychic readings becomes second nature.
It is important to note that it is not only about reading what is there, but also creating what you wish to be there. This way you also notice/create relevant synchronicities more often. For example, if your are doing a psychic reading about a person's health, then you trace the lines of energy, feel the texture and notice the obstructions - but at the same time, you look for alternative flows and create them just by looking.
