During a live reading, a psychic reader usually begins the session by discussing the initial deluge of messages that come to him for the seeker. Contrary to popular misconception, there is no magic involved and psychic readings are not akin to fortune telling. Psychic readers have a very strong intuition, and it is this "sixth sense" or extra sensory perception, which makes them aware of things a common person cannot perceive.
Before getting into specific issues, a psychic reader generally seeks information about the seeker's present, past and future and broadly touches on all the areas of his life, which includes his relationships, career, health, and finances. Once the seeker has passed on these details, the reader verifies it with him to make sure that he has clearly understood the information. Using this as a foundation, the psychic reader tunes into the electrical, magnetic and other energies emanating from the seeker, commonly referred to as his 'aura', which contains further information about his life.
From this point, the psychic remains open to discuss focused information relating to the seeker's areas of interest. A beneficial live reading requires that the reader and seeker both participate. This allows for a much better flow and even assists the process. A seeker should not come for a session expecting the psychic to 'read' his aura and predict the future. Whether he seeks insights about a relationship, guidance for a career move, relevant information that can make a tricky decision easier to make or increased awareness of the influences that are impacting his life, the more aware the seeker is of the issue and queries, the more successful the reading.
