What do Psychic Readers do?

You might have had that strange, tingling feeling up your spine when you hear your cell phone ringing, as if you already knew who was calling you without even looking. If you tend to be right more often than not, you could already be using your extra sensory perception, or ESP, to make predictions. Whether your readings are as small as determining who’s on the other end of the line, or as monumental as connecting with the deceased, being a Psychic Reader is all about demystifying the future.

In your own parlor, Psychic Readers meet with clients who are counting on your wisdom and mysterious expertise to give them valuable insight. Running your own business is one of the perks of the profession. As a Psychic Readers, you can even create a parlor in your own home if you want a more personal feel to your sessions, which can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. The methods you use in your day-to-day readings are completely up to you.

Tea leaf reading and divining the future from runes are two ancient arts passed down from wise cultures, each taking a lot of memorization and meditation to master. Sure, your methods may be well practiced and steeped in tradition, but you never underestimate the effect of showmanship. Accuracy is important when predicting, but a little smoke and mirrors never hurt to bolster the message.

By harnessing the power of emotion as well as the power of the mystic through telepathy, psychometrics (the ability to gain knowledge through touching a person or object), and séances, you create lasting bonds of trust with your clients. After all, you’re giving them information that will help them make important future choices, or allow them to reconcile with the past and move on with their lives.
