Types of Psychic Readings

By heaven | The Psychic Blog

First I’d like to give a description of some the different kinds of services are available.  I believe it’s important to have a good understanding of what the services that are out there in order to make the right choices.  I’d like to give a brief list of what they, and it is not meant to be all-inclusive.  There are tarot card, angel card, palm , numerology, astrology, rune stones, psychic, and psychic medium readings. 
Tarot cards were originally used for games in the 15th century.  It wasn’t until the 18th and 19th century that they were then used to foretell the future.  In readings they are broken into two groups, the major arcana and the minor arcana.  They major arcana has 22 cards, and the minor has 56 for a total of 78 cards.  There are many different designs of tarot decks, nad far too many to be able to list here.  The most popular is probably the Rider-Waite deck.  Psychic readers who use tarot decks are not necessarily born with the gifts, or should I say have their intuitive abilities open.  One can be taught the meanings of each card and can then do readings from the decks of cards by laying them out for a person who wishes to have a reading.  Angel card readings would be another form of card reading, but they usually have only positive meanings in them.  As with tarot decks, angel decks can be varied, and there are many different ones.  The most popular angel cards are probably the ones made by Doreen Virtue.
The next type of psychic reading I would like to talk about is the palm reading.   Palm reading is the art of reading the lines in the palm of the hand.  Each line has a meaning, and as many lines as the hand has, there are equally as many different interpretations of those meanings.  I have been asked often if palm reading is real.  The reading so of palms is real, and the lines do have meanings.  Now whether or not the person doing the reading is real or not is another question.  It is believed that the lines are linked to our past lives, and what is to be in the current life.  There are many cultures that use it and believe it in quite freely.  Like tarot and angel card reading, palm reading can be taught, and in fact, is taught in different cultures.
Numerolgy readings are done by the use of numbers and letters.  Each number has a meaning and what it represents.  Letter have a number that is associated with it.  The numbers have meanings for both positive and negative qualities.  It is believed that before we incarnate into a lifetime we sit down with a guidance counselor (so to speak) and determine what life lessons we wish to experience.  And in doing that our date of birth is determined, as is our name, and with the numbers it adds together to give us personalities to create those lessons.  How we live and learn those lessons is up to us.  We have freewill to make the choices of how to handle them.  But if we do not learn the lesson at first they continue to come up over and over again until we do learn them.  I will leave that for another day.  The name we are given at birth is coverted into numbers, then the numbers are added together, and reduced to a single digit, unless the number is 11 or 22, which are considered to be master numbers.    There are four core elements in numerology.  The Life Path, which is determined by the date of birth.  The second of the core is Expression, which is determined by your full birth name.  Soul Urge is the third element, or your inner motivation, and is determined by using the vowels in your birth name. Your Birthday is considered the sub-lesson to be learned in your life, and that is the numerical day of your birth.  This is merely an overview of what a numerology reading entails and in now way inclusive of everything involved.  An astrology reading is closely compared with a numerology reading as your month, day, and year of birth is used, along with the hour of birth.  The way an astrological reading is done today is by typing all the data into software and computer puts together a chart showing the things that have gone on, and what’s to come.  As with the other types of readings, numerology and astrology are also a form of reading that can be taught.  Before software was devoloped for the readings all the charting was done by hand, and was very time consuming.  Numerology and astrology are very good tools, and when someone does them for a person it can be very revealing in that a person that is adept at it can tell you a lot of things about your personality and how you handle situations, and relationships.
Rune stone readings go back to ancient times.  The stones have runic alphabet on them.  Each letter or symbol has a meaning.  It’s a matter of the person interpretting that meaning and delivering it to the person who wishes to have a reading done.  Reading runes is something that can be taught.
Psychic readings is someone looking at the past, what’s going on in the present, and what the possibilities are for the future.  I say possibilities, because not all things are set in stone and must occur.  Sometimes those things can be changed.  A psychic uses his or her senses to do readings.  Clairaudience is hearing things.  Clairvoyance is seeing signs.  Clairsentience is feeling something.  Claircognizance is knowing, (gut feeling).  Clairalience is smelling.  Clairgustance is tasting.  Not all psychics have or use all the gifts.  Now there are those that say we all have a psychic sense, and there are those that say it can be taught.  My answer to this is we are all born with an internal knowing, but we do not all have it open and use it.  We can be taught to open it up and use it.  The  more you use it, the more it opens up the clearer it becomes.  And that is yet another subject for another day.
Psychic medium readings are communicating with people that have died or crossed over.  I personally like to say crossed over, because my belief is a death from earth is birth in another dimension, if you will.  That would be the difference between a psychic and psychic medium reading.  And to finish it up for now, all psychic mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are psychic mediums. 
I hope that this article has been informative and helpful.  Please share it with your friends and join our group for continued discussions and education on all things psychic.
