Psychic readings are done by people who have the gift of clairvoyance. This is the heightened ability of perception or extended abilities of the senses of touch, taste, sight, sound and instinct. The psychic reader can do the readings by sight or sound which means it can be in person or even over the telephone. Many consider this to be paranormal or pseudoscience. The readings have always been controversial since the psychic charges a fee when the reading is done.
There are several types of psychic readings that are practiced.
TAROT CARD READING:
The use of tarot cards for psychic readings is very common and popular. The person doing the reading doesn’t need to have any psychic ability at all. Tarot cards can be purchased in many places, and the reader simply has to pull cards from the deck and just tell the customer what they mean.
Cartomancy, which is simply the use of regular playing cards, is another form of fortune telling. Sometimes Tarot cards are considered to be cartomancy.
Using astrology and horoscopes for a reading is also quite common. These forms uses the stars and planets to predict what our lives have in store for us. It depends on the day and time when you were born to tell what the future holds.
Palm reading goes back a long time and will probably still be used far into the future. It is the study of shapes, wrinkles, lines and curves on the palm to foresee the future.
Using a person’s personal physical objects to do a reading is psychometry. These objects could be car keys, rings, glasses or many other items used in every day life. The objects are said to hold a person’s energy which will be able to predict the future. This form can also be used to find missing persons.
There are many psychics who believe that the study of numbers can show how they influence a person’s life. The numbers can be derived by the letters in the person’s name or by their date of birth.
LITHOMANCY AND CRYSTALLOMANCY:
The most recognized form of a psychic reading involves a crystal ball. Quartz is used as a crystal ball and this form of reading is crystallomancy.
A reading that use stones or gems immersed in water or tossed together and read is called lithomancy. Many cultures around the world use this method of psychic reading.
Every person is said to have an auto surrounding him. This aura is supposed to be a subtle and luminous radiation that could be a different color for each person. Psychics claim that they are the only ones that can actually see the aura around a person. They call the aura a bioelectromagnetic field with each color having a different meaning.
A widely used form of psychic readings is telephone readings. The distant readings have also been done by using email, chat or by a webcam.
