When you have a psychic reading, you're going to get information that the psychic picks up from you, and the information won't necessarily take the form of a coherent story. It could be in snippets, it could be in odd clues, and it could very well sound kind of vague. Rather than dismiss the reading, here's how to get the most out of that time spent with someone who is trying to see where you've been and where you're going.
First, remember that what the psychic tells you about your future, if the reading goes there, is something that can be changed. If you are a strong believer in fate and destiny, this will be easier said than done. But actions can change the future, and if the psychic tells you something you don't like, realize that it's just what he or she sees based on how you're conducting your life now.
That doesn't mean that positive future news is doomed, either. If the psychic tells you something you like, see how what you're doing now contributes to bringing that future into existence.
No Advance Information
Don't give the psychic information about yourself, other than maybe your name (because it's always nicer if the psychic doesn't have to refer to you as "Hey, you") and the basic question -- though sometimes not even the question is something you should mention. If you are concerned about a specific situation, you may want to speak with a psychic who uses a form of divination, like tarot cards, rather than one who goes just by psychic impressions.
Keep an Open Mind -- About Imagery
Sometimes the psychic will come up with imagery that doesn't ring true to you. Maybe you're child-free and the psychic tells you about all the children you're going to have. Children are a type of creation, and in many divination systems, creation covers children, art, new love, and more situations in that vein. Don't fret if you get news that doesn't seem right. Think about the basic qualities of that news and see what else in your life could apply. If you're an actress, for instance, you could find you've scored the role of Maria in a stage version of "The Sound of Music." Well, you've just ended up with a lot of children -- on the stage.
Psychic readings can be very helpful if you're trying to figure out a weird situation. Even if the information seems strange at first, eventually it unlocks a door in your mind that lets you see a solution or a key piece of information. If you're still not sure, try getting a very short reading just to dip your toes into the water. You'll be surprised at what the psychic can see.
