After decades of late-night infomercials promoting the Psychic Friends Network, Miss Cleo and others, its no wonder that we are skeptical about distance readings.
We all know the setup: pay $3.99 a minute and watch your money fly out of your wallet while the so-called “psychic” drags out the call as long as possible. But we’ve come a long way since those days. There are now many good reasons to choose a distance psychic reading over a traditional in-person session.
Over the last couple of decades, I have seen metaphysical services evolve in a very positive direction. A clear distinction has emerged between professional psychics and fortune tellers who provide services “for entertainment purposes only”. Fortune tellers will spin compelling tales of lottery wins and meeting your divine soul mate - typically a lot of fun and very entertaining, but not credible.
In contrast, professional psychics are more often sought out to explore significant life events, crises, and major changes on your path – helping you to see real world problems from a new perspective. Stretching your mind to new possibilities you hadn’t otherwise considered. They are also perfect for helping you to figure out what you want out of your life, set goals, and empower yourself to work towards them.
Thanks to websites and online reviews, it’s possible to do some research on the history, training, and area of specialty of a psychic you’d like a reading from. Education in esoteric and metaphysical studies has evolved substantially and its now easier than ever to find a reputable, professional psychic with real client testimonials.
Now, getting back to the belief that distance readings aren’t credible: there can actually be many advantages to choosing a distance session over an in-person session.
If you are nervous about having your first reading, or you need to discuss potentially difficult topics, having a distance reading gives you an opportunity to be relaxed in your own home, surrounded by the space and things that help you to feel more open to the experience, safe, and comforted.
The psychic professional you want to work with may not be easy for you to visit in person due to location. Distance readings give you the opportunity to try a new psychic who may live in another country, or to continue working with your favorite psychic even after one of you has moved away.
Perhaps mobility impacts your options. Sometimes in-person sessions may be difficult because of mobility and transportation issues. But sometimes its also because of your other responsibilities such watching over your children, or grandchildren, or even other loved ones such as your aging parents or special needs siblings.
Timing for distance readings is more flexible as booking appointments is not restrained by business hours, or time zones. This can be very helpful for people who work night shift or are in other time zones.
Sometimes people don’t feel comfortable being seen coming and out of a metaphysical shop, particularly those who are in the public eye and may become the subject of gossip. Choosing a distance reading gives you the opportunity to ensure your privacy.
Genuine professional psychics often take on a role similar to a confidante, in the sense that you can tell them absolutely anything without being judged and they will help you to break down and work out whatever is troubling you. Distance sessions work because the connection between you and your psychic is made in conversation, via
tarot cards, crystals, or other modalities being used during the session. The distance between you is irrelevant so long as your mind is open to the experience.
A distance reading session through InSpirit Centre works basically the same way it works in person but by phone or video call. Much will depend on the modality style of the reading as well the personal style of the psychic. If the modality uses tools such as tarot cards, pendulums, or crystals, you can see these tools used in a video session, but the psychic can also send photos through text or messenger so you can follow along while the psychic is speaking. This is often an advantage for people who are very visual, while others may find it a distraction and prefer to focus on the verbal communication. With a distance reading you can choose what is right for you.
At InSpirit Centre we encourage you to share as much or as little information about yourself as you wish. The session is all about you the client, so you are always welcome to direct the session, ask for clarifications, or change topics. As a reminder, make sure to not invest more than you can realistically afford to spend. The cost of psychics ranges greatly, as does the information you will receive.
If you have been considering a psychic reading, we encourage you to give distance reading a try. This year is a great time to be bold!
For a video call, InSpirit Centre can send you a link for a Zoom meeting, or your psychic can connect and chat via Facebook Messenger if you prefer.
For a voice only session, we will set up a time when your psychic will phone you. Let us know if you will want photos during the reading, and make sure you give us a cell phone number.
