As a medium, I love when my clients have a healthy skepticism. This skepticism not only makes me work a little harder to demonstrate life does continue after death, but it also leaves me with a greater sense of satisfaction in my work as the proof converts the skeptic into a believer that now has a feeling of peace and hope. It is why I practice evidential mediumship.
Sometimes that skepticism goes a little too far. In my years reading I have witnessed people going to great lengths in an effort to thwart any mentalism or visible cues that would give insight into their life. People have taken off their wedding rings before the reading so I didn’t know they were married. Worn clothing to cover up tattoos of loved ones names. At house parties, people have admitted to hiding family photos so I can’t size up who is missing. I’ve even had clients hesitant to give my husband a name while booking and have asked, “Is she going to Google me?”
I completely understand this fear, I AM a skeptic! (For more about that check out my blog I Get Readings TOO) Despite the fact that I do some of these same things, seeing my clients do them always makes me chuckle because those actions are completely unnecessary.
First off, for those of you who worry a reader might be Googling you. Quite honestly, the time it would take to gather the information necessary to convince you I’m the real deal is not worth the money being exchanged for the reading. Especially since it has been my experience it is not the information that I can Google that is going to convince you your loved one is really there. My clients are more impressed when I tell them their loved ones favorite flavor ice cream than when I hit the name.
Secondly, the cues you might be afraid the reader is going to pick up on actually mean less than you think they do. I actually try very hard NOT to look at a person as the subtle cues throw me off.
So for you hopeful skeptics out there who wish to be wowed, here are some tips on how to get the best reading.
Hope these tips help, they are only a few of many. And remember, skepticism balanced with an open mind is what is going to get you the best reading. With this in mind, I hope your next reading blows your socks off.
