More and more people are turning to spiritual readings as a way of connecting with both those on the spiritual plane and with their own higher consciousness but there can be some confusion around the different types of spiritual readings. This may leave some people unable to understand the best type of reading for them – just as with anything else in your life, you may find that you benefit more from one type of reading than you do form another.
In this article, we are going to be looking at exactly what a spiritual reading is and what the various types are as well as how they work.
What Is A Spiritual Reading?
You may sometimes hear a spiritual reading being referred to as psychic reading, but it is important to keep in mind that they are one of the same and are usually performed by someone who has the ability to make a connection with the spirit world in a way that many others can not.
People who have this type of ability are able to access information on a higher plane than the one we find ourselves on and this is often done through the use of one of the five senses. For different people, different senses will be heightened and this often means that what one psychic medium tells you can differ from what another tells you.
You might think of this in a physical sense. If you and I were both to experience an animal in different ways, our interpretation of it would be very different also. If one of us heard the animal and the other felt it, the two descriptions would likely not match but would have a similar meaning or end result. This is similar to how different people are able to interact with the spirit world.
During a spiritual reading, you will be given access to all of the information that the psychic has access to and they will show you how to use this information to benefit your life. In some cases, you may not hear what you wanted to hear during a reading but it is important to remember that those in the spirit world are working for the greater good and we may not always understand their messages right away.
Types Of Spiritual Readings
As with anything, there are many different types of spiritual readings, and choosing one that works well for you is just as important as the reading itself. However, despite this fact, many people still enter blindly into a reading and are left feeling confused when they are no clearer or wiser by the end of it.
In some cases, there may be psychic mediums who are able to access a variety of different types of readings and will use these accordingly, sometimes they may overlap and your reading may contain a variety of different types.
The term psychic often gets thrown around and used in the incorrect manner but one thing to keep in mind is that anyone who is able to perform a spiritual reading has psychic abilities. The difference is that some people will use this ability on their own, whereas others prefer to intertwine it with other methods such as cards.
Someone who is psychic is able to receive information in a variety of ways. We touched upon this earlier on in that people with psychic abilities have heightened senses. Some may receive visions that are ultimately clear to them while other people may pick up on subtle physical sensations that are not apparent to you or I.
In some cases, psychic people are able to literally hear messages delivered from their spirit guides, and whilst we all have spirit guides, not all of us are able to communicate with them freely. They are also able to work with your energy and many can detect blockages in your aura.
For the most part, a psychic will be able to give you information regarding your personal life. This might include things such as your job, your health, or your relationships. Other people will be able to give you information on things that may happen in the future so this is a good way to get an insight into what your life might look like in a week, a month, a year, and so on.
Those who are mediums are able to connect with the spirit world and make contact with loved ones who have previously crossed over to the other side. One of the ways that the spirits of our deceased loved ones communicate through mediums is by giving them information that gives us concrete evidence that they are present.
For example, you may receive a message from a grandparent who tells you to trust the medium and confirms this by telling them something that only the two of you would know – a favorite childhood bedtime story or the date of a specific outing.
If you go to see a medium for a reading, you will likely be able to use them to receive messages from a variety of other spirits too including angels or other spiritual beings that want to offer support and guidance.
Tarot cards are used in a process that is known as divination – this essentially means a way of seeking knowledge using supernatural sources. This type of reading is based around the use of a set of 78 cards which come in two suits – the major arcana and the minor arcana.
What is extremely useful with this type of reading is that it is frequently used to answer questions. If you have unanswered questions that you feel would benefit from some sort of spiritual guidance then a tarot reading might work well for you.
There are some people, however, who simply purchase a set of tarot cards and use them as a hobby – it is important that when you opt for this type of reading that you are able to do so with a psychic who will have the knowledge and experience to correctly read the cards and give you the most accurate information.
Past Life Regression
There are a lot of people who believe that our soul is placed inside this vessel temporarily and that, once it leaves, it will go on to another body and live a new life. After all, the soul is an infinite being that doesn’t fail as our physical bodies do.
Many people are of the belief that this process of reincarnation is used to give our soul the chance to grow and learn over the course of many lives before finally ascending to a higher plane.
There are a lot of variations of this belief but each one leans towards a similar end goal. However, if we are to truly learn and grow in a spiritual capacity, it is important to be able to access information from our previous lives. This is not something that most people are capable of doing alone but there are psychics out there who are able to look into your past life or take you back to a point where you can experience it again for yourself.
Accessing this type of information may also help you to gain a better understanding of the things that are currently happening in your life, since, for many of us, it is difficult to understand why certain things occur.
Not all readings have to be a simple question and answer session or a traditional message-giving session. There are some psychic mediums who prefer to work with art and this is just as viable a way of gaining information as any other.
In this case, the medium will receive information and images from a spiritual being which will allow them to paint or draw an image of the being. This may be a deceased loved one or someone else, but more often than not it will be someone you recognize. This may be enough to point you in the right direction or give you the comfort of knowing that, despite their absence, this soul is still nearby, guiding and supporting you through your life.
People all over the world take comfort in going to see someone who has the ability to perform a spiritual reading and this can be beneficial in many ways. You may notice an increased sense of clarity and confidence as well as receiving messages from people who have passed over onto the spiritual plane. In addition to this, a spiritual reading can give you the opportunity to gain a new understanding of your situation and lead you on to bigger and better things.
However, there is more than one type of reading and this can be confusing, especially if you have never worked with a person with psychic abilities before. Some of the types of spiritual reading include tarot cards, spiritual art, and mediumship, all of which are viable ways of gathering information from the spirit world.
When working with a psychic, it is important to choose someone who operates in a way that you feel comfortable with – for example, some people prefer to have a reading done through cards whereas others like to use a medium. The information you receive will likely be the same but delivered in a different manner.
