clairsentient is consulted to help heal and release past emotional traumas by helping the
client come to terms with suppressed emotions.

Past Life Reading
Many people in the spiritual community believe that we are capable of incarnating on the Earth more
than once for the purpose of learning and growth. Some readers are able to relate information about an
individual's past lives for the purpose of understanding issues that are going on in one's current life. There

meaning associated). Psychics can receive information in many different ways, through visions (either with the
physical eyes or the mind's eye), through hearing messages from spirit guides, intuitive
knowing, empathic feeling, and other ways.
Psychics may also be mediums, but are not always. They may or may not use cards or other divination tools.
Generally, psychics can help with most personal issues (love, career, health) and give some insight into possible future events. A psychic may also be able to see energetic issues or blockages in the energy field. Each one is different.

The belief is that objects which are in close proximity
to a person for extended periods of time hold some of
that person's 'energy'.
This method has been used in attempts
to locate missing persons.
This is the flip side of predicting the future. Retrocognition takes a look into the past to read an individual’s past
lives and experiences—and the non-physical “life” between their past lives—in order to understand the

have been playing out a certain way, if you’re feeling a bit star-crossed and want to know the reasons why.

Remote Viewing Reading
Remote viewing is a specialized clairvoyant skill that allows the psychic to travel “psychically” to
another location to describe a scene or event. Once the psychic is in the location they can read the past,
present, and future of that location. Remote viewing is frequently used by psychic investigators to describe
crime scenes and how crimes happen. Further, it is used in past life regression sessions so that the
psychic can reveal the clients past lives to them through the images they receive.

object – typically a reflective or translucent one – in order to see the future or far off into the distance.

or if a long-term project at work will pay off in the end.

skills you might have developed over the years (or abilities that are coming to you in future), emotions you
might be facing at a particular time in your life, or they might be offering you guidance. A psychic can
tap into your spiritual animal to help you find your true path in life.

ones, guides or other being who make themselves known in a reading.

after death and also a precious keepsake of a loved one.

focus is on you, and your soul's journey. This information this reading provides is mostly likely to encompass a
wide area, such as, personal, spiritual events, past, present, probably future events, and information for
your soul's growth. This information may also included career, health, and relationship.

can be used to assist in answering almost any question. Tarot readers often use the cards in conjunction
with psychic information to give a rich view of the questioner's situation.
Tea Leaf Readings (Tasseography)
Tea leaf reading is a divination or fortune-telling method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee
grounds, or wine sediments. After a cup of tea has been poured, without using a tea strainer, the tea is drunk
or poured away. The cup should then be shaken well and any remaining liquid drained off in the saucer.
The diviner now looks at the pattern of tea leaves in the cup and allows the imagination to play around
[with] the shapes suggested by them. They might look like a letter, a heart shape, or a ring.
These shapes are then interpreted intuitively.
A telepath is a psychic who can receive psychic transmission based on thought patterns. There are several
different types of telepathy including latent, precognitive, and emotive. Despite the difference in the labels,
each type of telepathy receives its information from thought patterns (called PSI). The Telepath can
reveal what someone’s thoughts are in the past, present, and future.

From the perspective of accuracy -

readings are equal.

or they are thousands of miles away.
A Live Reading is a reading where you
have the energy of Spirit (the messenger)
and the energy of the Person (the message recipient) together, all in one place,
all at the same time.
Excerpts from :
A live reading is an active, three-way link between yourself, the medium and those in Spirit. The other
type of reading is a distance reading, where the messenger (Spirit) and the medium deliver the information
to the message recipient (you) after their connection is complete, these are generally used for email or
written messages to be delivered at another date, such as a book or publication.
A Live Reading is a live reading so long as all three parties are meeting at the same place, at the
same time - even if that place is a non-physical virtual place - such as a telephone or webcall. It doesn’t matter
if a Live Reading takes place in the same room, or thousands of miles away, because it is not the physical
bodies of two people that are connecting in a reading - it is the mind, hearts and Spirits of two people
who are connecting in a reading. And this, can happen anywhere.
