I am here to write what I feel. I hope that what I can share will be of help to many of you.
* Getting a Reading *

When you are getting a reading, it is important that you are feeling good about yourself.  You should not have your emotions all over the place.  When I say this, it means, do not be upset, angry, anxious, stressed-out, crying, etc.  Emotions play a huge role when you are getting a reading.  When you are emotional the outcome of your reading may not be what you want to hear.


Something that helps when you are about to get a reading, is to eat a banana an hour before your reading.  The potassium in the banana tends to open you up and act as a conduit.  ** Please do not take this recommendation if you are allergic to bananas. ** 


If you play ‘trick the psychic’ in your eyes, it may work, but you are the one that does not benefit from this.  I was doing a reading for someone and they asked me about their brother.  They asked about his truck.  I saw that he was going to sell his truck and get another vehicle. This person did not respond to what I had said.  Later on, she had written that she tested me, and that I was right about his truck. 

There is no need to be calling a psychic when someone has not contacted you in over 30 days time. If it is longer than that, they are 'ghosting' you. Do not start out with, "How does so and so feel about me? Is there a future with us? If so and so does contact you, then converse and tell them how you feel. Friends should be friends and not someone that disappears on you. Relationships should not be walking on egg shells or being afraid to express yourself. People should be open and honest. When you are open and honest in a reading, it is more successful on the receiving end. When I see mice, then you are telling a partial story. This is not to your advantage and will prove deceit on your end. If I do see mice around a person, I will end the chat. I do not have time for liars by ommission. Doing this will save you a lot of money and a lot of time.


I will not answer something on demand.  For Example:  What does he/she look like?  What color is my car?  What about my love life?  There are certain things that will come to me and if it is the look of a person, look of a car, the color of a house, etc., I will say so. I will ask you to be more specific, if a question is like the above questions or similar.  I.E.: What about my love life? I will most likely ask; Is there someone in your life already that you would like to look at or, are you looking for new love to come in your life. Being specific with any question is beneficial to you. Being 'CLEAR' in your heart, mind and soul is the best way of receiving a reading.


I work best when I just say what I see. I will usually answer all your questions with this process.  Being'OPEN' and 'HONEST'will give you the best benevolent outcome for you in your reading.  As the saying goes, "Honesty is the Best policy.”

I love this!

Honesty is a struggle for some. They need to realize that we arent judging them. If they tell the whole truth, they will get a good reading
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Friday, October 19, 2012 1:03 PM
That is true. If you tell the truth, you get the truth, whether it be good or bad. Honesty is the best policy for anything in life.

Thanks for your input, it's greatly appreciated.

Also I have come to realize that some people are afraid to be happy so they are self destructive. Broken people attract broken people.We attract what we need to heal in ourselves.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Monday, October 22, 2012 12:51 PM
It is true in what you say. Broken people attract broken people. We can change this to attract positive people. I know that when I change, so do the people around me change.

Thanks for your comment :)

Thanks for the advice! I always try to be as truthful as I can.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Tuesday, October 30, 2012 8:55 PM
Thanks for the tip about eating a banana!  I'll remember that.

I won't answer "Parlor Trick" questions, either.  Thank goodness, hardly anyone has called me and wanted to waste their money on these!  But when they have asked something like "What's my middle name?" I've responded with "Why?  Did you forget?" and then I tell them I do NOT play these games.

As for not getting a reading when you're upset, it would be great if everyone could be calm and in a decent frame of mind when calling but that's not always possible.  I've given many readings to people who were VERY upset.  I've also gotten readings when I've been very upset.  In both cases, readings have been very accurate, helpful and calming.  But that's just me...

As for telling the truth, lies ALWAYS come back on the person telling the lie!  Ever since I can remember, the importance of being truthful has been drilled into me.  Once, when I was small, I lied to my favourite Uncle.  It wasn't a "big" lie nor did it hurt anyone.  To this day, I don't know how he knew I had lied!  But he did know and he knew immediately.  For more than six months, I was dead to him.  This nearly killed me!  We were together nearly every day but he wouldn't acknowledge me presence, talk to me or look at me.  When he had to, he would look "through" me.  I kept wishing for a hard core whipping instead and kept Praying for his forgiveness but neither happened for what seemed like a lifetime.

When he finally forgave me, I was SO thrilled!!  That was the longest 6+ months of my life!!  It also taught me, at a VERY early age, not only NOT to lie, but that there are no "little" lies.  It also taught me that, no matter how much the truth may hurt, how difficult it sometimes is to tell the truth, the truth really IS best!

Thanks so much for the awesome comment.

I agree about what you said about being upset when getting a reading. In the end, the client does feel more comforted or calm as you said. I have see this many times.

Yes, always tell the truth, no matter how much it will or does hurt.

Thanks again Karla ;)

I find that people have trouble seeing past getting the guy.  The questions are "Will he?" when we should be asking, "Do I?"
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Wednesday, November 28, 2012 7:51 AM
The hardest thing is for a person to realize that they are holding themselves back and no they are not waiting on no one but themselves to change. Lady Rose you are so right instead of "will he " it is " do I " always. one major cause of misery is waiting on something or someone to change and not getting the message that change starts within never outside
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Friday, November 30, 2012 7:39 AM
Great topic!  I have the same as all the above.  I agree with pretty much of the comments above.  We all want "our" version of our best futures, but what others fail to see is that others are involved as well and they may not be the best for them!  Some times people do not want to see truth and yes it will catch up with them.  I do understand getting a second and maybe a third consultation about a specific issue, but when you are going to 8 different advisers for the same issue, I don't understand that.  I agree always be truthful, as I do not sugar coat things. I am respectful and compassionate but still truthful.  And I also agree that clients need to understand that we are NOT judging them at all.  Thank you for the post!

The hardest thing is for some to be honest with themselves and to accept reality and their role in what is happening in their lives. Of course blame is easy bu it never fixes anything

Thank you Donna for posting.

I do agree with what you are saying.

Thanks again.  :)

You're a real deep thinker. Thanks for shrnaig.

In the coplmiacted world we live in, it's good to find simple solutions.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Thursday, February 07, 2013 8:36 PM
If I'm getting a reading asking about another person then I think you, the psychic, would be reading their energies and not mine. My frame of mind or emotions could be anywhere, but you're supposed to be the one who knows. I can completely accept an honest and direct response, but what you see in an outcome based on more than one person should be based on both - not on pure emotions.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Friday, February 08, 2013 8:24 AM
I totally agree with your post.  When you test the psychic you distort the connection.  It can be frustrating.  When someone tests the psychic, they themselves are battling their own psychic abilities.

Light & Love

I think it is so disrespectful to ask a reader to play parlour tricks.  It limits the connection between reader and client and prevents real healing.  Great post.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Monday, July 08, 2013 5:40 PM
I appreciate your comment. I am all for helping people to see what they need. That is my main objective when giving a reading.

I find it a lot better/easier to not pick up energies of being upset when reading because sometimes, you cannot get past that energy.

I am very empathic and when my client sets up a reading with me and is tired, I usually pick that up because I am yawning over and over and they laugh, you are picking up my tiredness.

So, energy is real important in regard to a reading, it really does set the pace. I would not turn down an upset client, I would only want them to not be upset at the time of the reading so I can see the best for them in regard to whatever outcome will be.

I am concerned with some callers being obsessed with time frames instead of focusing on self work.Life is not a perfect little box.
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Sunday, July 28, 2013 2:48 PM
Thank you for your comment.

Yes, I do agree with you on that one. Timing is a tough one. What time works for one person does not with another. It is always different no matter what.

# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Monday, August 19, 2013 8:21 PM
So true!!!! I love what you wrote in your blog . I find that it works both ways too... If I am upset , I don't go near Keen... I wait till I'm centered and ready to share. I try to yoga every day so I can stay in the psychic zone. When the clients are open.... It's so beautiful to read them.

Namaste, . Danish

Great blog! I think many new callers can be nervous and I love your idea of eating the banana an hour before calling Keen. Preparing for a call is a very great idea!

Perfect, you hit it on the head.  
# re: * Getting a Reading * @ Wednesday, July 19, 2017 5:46 PM
I do not play psychic games with folks. I have been doing this for too long to put up with that. I use to play them games back in the day and astonish them. But, it takes too much energy to do all that. I would much rather waste my energy on the important things in the reading, than waste it trying to prove myself. I will be quick to turn down a client who tries to test me, but then sometimes, I will play back with them too. I will ask them "Do you want the truth, or do you want games?"

Love this advice!
