Do you love texting? Messaging your friends on Facebook or Snapchat? If you feel most comfortable in an instant messaging type of format, then you will probably enjoy getting a psychic reading via online chat.

I find that my younger clients appreciate the familiarity of this format. Also, some first time, nervous clients select this option because there is still a degree of anonymity provided by the lack of voice contact. Your emotions don’t have to show, and it feels easier to end the session if you feel you need to go.

What Is The Reading Like?

A psychic doesn’t need to be with you physically to access your energy field or to use the Tarot or other types of divination on your behalf. The information they receive to address your concerns will be coming from a kind of energy internet that they can “log into” no matter where you are. Once you give permission for them to seek information for you, they will use the technique or method that will best enable them to help you.

A reading can last just a few minutes or as long as you require (an hour is a great time frame), and all you need is a good internet connection and your device. Online chat readings are great if you are in a public place or don’t want anyone to overhear your conversation. Just like with a phone reading, your advisor will be completely live, focused on you, and ready to do their best to help you.

You will be guided to set up an account if you don’t already have one with Keen. Then, it’s time to select an advisor from the list. Those available for chat will have a “chat now” button. You simply press the button, and a page will load with your reader’s picture. Once you hit “begin chat,” you are on your way. You can see minutes elapsed on the screen, and you can end the reading at any time. A transcript of the conversation will be stored in your account area so that you can access it whenever you like.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Reading

I recommend that you shut down your other apps and programs even if you are used to multitasking while in other instant messaging contexts. Get comfy, and really devote your attention and time to the reading. Your reader will be focused just on you, so make the most of your time.

Have a list handy of subjects you want help with or are curious about. The time will whiz by, and you may be tempted to go off on tangents. This, of course, is fine—advisors are always available—but it’s nice to keep track of your most pressing topics to make sure you get to them.

Your advisor is a real person, not a computer! Be clear, respectful, and don’t use too much texting shorthand. You want to make sure your questions are getting across. But also be relaxed! This is a conversation—though the psychic will be reading for you, they will still be able to engage normally with you.

Choose an advisor who uses methods you feel comfortable with. If you are curious about Tarot or astrology, find a reader whose skills include these modalities. Remember, the chat format will not affect the reader’s ability to use any particular techniques.

Do have realistic expectations. There are some limitations to the chat format, and you might find that it takes some time to drop in and feel comfortable. You won’t have another person’s voice to respond to, and they won’t be able to hear your tone and see your responses. As with any chat/email medium, there can be miscommunication. If you feel your reader isn’t understanding your question or that you aren’t really connecting, just say so!

Take it seriously—but have fun! Although chat is a more informal medium, it is still a great technique for those who prefer the format and can be as serious, insightful, and profound as an in-person or phone reading.

Online chat is a perfect way to dip your toe in the water of psychic readings or sample a variety of advisor styles. Private, easy, and informal—a great way to get the help you need. Contact an advisor on Keen today!
