Before you even see a psychic, you must do the spiritual work in order to receive the answers to help you move forward on your path. Think of it like a great actor: Having talent is a given, but becoming famous is a whole other story. Being in the presence of a gifted psychic is only the first step.
So just what is the work one must do to get answers? As you put your energy into furthering your relationship with yourself, getting your own answers becomes a natural side effect. Start by reading spiritual or self-help books that enlighten and inspire you. Study spiritual teachings you find interesting. Anything that raises your consciousness and connects you with your higher self becomes the work that then allows you to receive the answers you’re seeking.
In a psychic reading, the psychic's ability is like a telephone line between you and the spiritual world. Make a list of specific questions, and remember that just because you ask a certain question doesn't always mean that there will be an answer. Perhaps you are asking a question that your higher self is not ready to receive. Maybe you’ve not yet done the work on a spiritual level for the answer to be granted. It actually can be more harmful than healing to get an answer that you're not emotionally ready for. Sometimes there isn't an answer because the outcome has yet to be decided or because destiny is not set in stone.
If you are hoping to connect with a loved one who has passed over, it’s important that you focus intensely on that person's energy. The more you focus, the stronger the connection can be made and come through.
So, to make the most of your reading, do your homework -- both spiritual and physical. And be sure to find a genuine psychic. Focus on your guides, teachers and loved ones in spirit, and then you'll have the greatest chance of getting answers that will change your life for the better.
