What do psychics do?

What do Psychics Do?

Psychics, Readers, Intuitives, Mediums, and energy workers can offer a fresh take on events in a client's life. Just as a person can talk to a wise friend and see if the friend has insights which can help them, they can talk to a psychic and see if the reader can help them move forward in their life.

Most psychic readings are not like a bolt of life-changing information. They are more like a gentle sprinkling of wisdom which helps re-frame issues. Talking to a psychic reader brings in a different perspective. If someone listens with an open mind, they can see issues in a new way and come up with strategies for dealing with problems. Psychics offer the opportunity for people to understand who they are, what is happening in their lives, and their choices for moving forward.

Psychics can explore situations, describe options, and help people choose their best course of action. Psychics don't choose for them, people make their own choices.

In addition, talking with psychics can open minds to a world of potential. There is comfort in hearing that people are not alone in this world. There is a greater picture of humanity and there are reasons why people are here on Earth. Everyone is having an adventure. Magic, mystery, and a world of wonder, exist.

In most cases, clients come to psychics. However, some psychics can help people wherever the people are located. The person doesn't have to make an appointment. The psychic might give a short message at a coffee shop or at the gym. It can happen anywhere.

And, sometimes in the middle of the night, while asleep, a psychic can help a person in need. Their soul can fly to the person who needs assistance.

The people who were interviewed for this Project provide the following types of services:

Psychic Readings

A psychic reader can sit down with a client and access information about them. The reader helps the client understand the larger picture of what is happening in their life. Psychics are often asked about love, health, jobs, finances, family members, and life path. Information from a psychic can provide a new perspective on an issue and can help a person clearly see their choices. Each choice shapes the future. Psychics can help people understand how to make the choices which keep them on the path to the future they seek.

When someone asks a question, it opens the energy and allows the psychic to give them an answer. The more specific the question is, the more specific the answer is. Vague questions receive vague answers. Clear questions allow clear answers.

Some psychics, known as Mediums, can communicate with our loved ones (including animals) who have passed to the other side.


Psychics can act as channels, bringing forth important messages. Some psychics allow "conscious channeling," while others prefer "trance channeling." With conscious channeling, the Intuitive remains in control of their body, relaying messages. Trance channeling allows spirits from other dimensions to enter the body and use the psychic's voice to speak. The messages which come through often apply to the whole world. Universal principles are discussed.


Many psychics teach workshops to help people boost their intuition.


Several of the psychics are life coaches. They use their intuitive gifts to help people determine their goals, then give these clients the tools to achieve their dreams.

Tool Provision

One psychic told me that when people tell her about their issues, she knows which tools to give them. She shares information so people understand that as they develop their own gifts and paths, they don't have to suffer. They can have the life they want. The tools help people return to their natural state by learning to work with others, give to themselves, be more understanding, be less judgmental, look at the big picture, and not feel overwhelmed.

Tools can help people clear obstacles, blocks, and challenges, and can help them progress in their lives. Tools can also raise a person's energy vibration.

Energy Work

Each person has an energy field which encompasses their physical body. Energy workers clean blockages out of this field, bring in fresh energy, and keep energy flowing through the body.

Sometimes, negative energies (or entities) attach to people. People will feel an unusual negativity. Psychics can remove the negative energies and entities. Negative entities can be sent into the Light, and blockages can be cleared so that people can relax and ground themselves.


A client can sit down with a healer who helps them draw positive energy into their body so that they can facilitate their own healing. This can be physical and/or emotional healing. Sometimes the healing doesn't cure the illness, but helps the client cope with the illness, or make peace with the problem.

Crossing Ghosts to the Other Side

Sometimes when people die, before their spirit can cross over, they have to come to terms with the life they have lived. When they can't make peace, they can't cross over.

Other times, people who have died in battle, or have had a traumatic accident, may not be prepared for death. They may be uncertain about what happened, or confused about where to go and what to do.

Psychics can communicate with ghosts, witness their trauma, help them understand what has happened, remind them that they are no longer bound to the Earth, and encourage them to move into the Light.

Evidence of an Energetic Universe

Many psychics provide evidence for the larger energetic universe in which we live. Bringing in messages which the psychics could not have known without an ability to contact Spirit Guides and deceased relatives, can show a connection to an unseen world.

The woman who works with table tipping told me that the reason she demonstrates table tipping is to show people that they have a connection to their Spirit Guides and deceased relatives.

The woman who provides "Spirit Drawings," says that there is something in each picture which provides evidence that it came from somewhere else. Many phenomena happen with these drawings. Information which she could not have known shows up in the drawings.

How do psychics get this information?

Every psychic works in a different way. Many psychics hear messages, see images which explain what is going on, or simply "know." They just know. Information can come through any of their senses. 

How do psychics connect with clients?

There are three major avenues for connecting with clients.

1) Some psychics hold hands, read palms, or find a way to connect directly with the client's energy. They enter the client's energy field. Then, when the person asks a question, it gives the psychic permission to access the answer.

2) Some psychics prefer not to interact with a client's energy. Instead, the psychic communicates with their own Spirit Guides, angels, or Higher Self, and has their entities communicate with the client's Spirit Guides, angels, or Higher Self to answer questions. The answer travels from the client's Guide to the psychic's Guide, to the psychic. Then, the psychic voices the answer.

3) Some psychics just open their mouths and messages come out. These psychics feel that they are connecting directly to the Universal Source of Energy and Information. 

Do psychics all do the same thing or do they have specialties?

In the world of psychic connection, there are many specialties. Some psychics do it all, but most psychics have an area of expertise. Some psychics predict the future, while others provide inspirational messages, communicate with the dead, communicate with entities who are not in this physical world, communicate with animals and/or help with healing. Other psychics predict financial markets and international issues.

Do psychics use tools when they do their work?

Many readers use tools to access information. For example, they may read astrological charts, explore numerology, read Tarot cards, read palms, or use crystal balls. Several of the readers felt that these approaches opened the energy so that they could access information from the non-physical world. Other readers used these devices just because their clients liked them. Clients preferred to think that the information came from the tool (such as Tarot cards) rather than think that the psychic could read their mind.

Other psychics mentioned that they liked having something like a card layout between them and the client. It gave people something to look at and provided a little physical space between the reader and the client.

In many cases, the information coming from the tool reinforces the messages which the psychics see or hear. For example, they may hear that a new work opportunity will be coming to the client. Then, they can look at the Tarot card layout and see the new opportunity showing up in the cards. This kind of feedback helps the psychic feel confident about the information they are sharing.
