Are Psychic Readings For Real?

Lets face it; everyone is fascinated with psychics. The idea that someone can know the unknown, especially about us, is very intriguing even for the most skeptical.

But is it for real? Can people actually get in touch with dead? Are psychics really able to tell everything about us from our watch or some other personal item? Are the methods and tools they use such as tarot cards and crystal balls really able to forecast the future?

In the psychic world there are two classes of psychic readers. There are those who are known as “Shut Eyes” who actually believe they are in touch with the dead and can really read the minds and futures of people who come to them for readings.

And there is a second class of psychic readers known as “Open Eyes”. Open eye readers do not necessarily believe they possess some mystical other worldly power. What they do believe in is their mastery and skill in using their reading method of choice – be that tarot, palm reading, numerology or one of many other psychic reading “systems”.

Open eye readers see the system they are using as being the most important part of the psychic reading. They spend many years mastering one, or a combination of several, of these traditional divination or “fortune telling” methods. In doing so, the open eye reader develops an uncanny understanding of human nature and develops an intuitive ability to grasp the meaning of any situation and the people involved.

In contrast the shut eye psychic often does not use a method but seemingly “channels” information from another time and place. They will often say that the props used by the open eyed reader are unnecessary for someone who is truly psychic. And perhaps they have a point.

An open eye reader, on the other hand, may not have any actual psychic ability (in the shut eye sense of the word); but has developed an intuitive right brain sense of what is happening and what is likely to happen, due to the years spent mastering their own personal reading system.

Reading systems such as the Tarot are first and foremost personal development tools. By using them and studying them constantly, anyone can begin to train their intuition and develop an uncommon understanding of the world around them and the people in it.

The tarot is especially good at developing the reader in this way. Every facet of a tarot card has meaning – The colours – The symbols – The characters on the card – The scene symbolized in the card. Every part of the card provides information to someone trained in the interpretation of the tarot.

Over a period of time a tarot reader begins to develop the ability to look deeply within any setting or situation and extract a more profound meaning and message from what is going on around them.

These insights are of course not reserved for the tarot. Any method practiced often enough will develop similar qualities in the person practicing them.

While not everyone has the ability to be a shut eye psychic, anyone who has the desire to do readings – and is prepared to put in some time and thoroughly learn a reading system – should ultimately be able to give very effective and helpful psychic readings.
