Psychic readings are performed via energy. The best way to shut down a reading is to shut down your energy.
Your energy can be shut down quite easily by you. NO ONE can connect with your energy without your permission. If you show up for a reading and shut down your energy by trying to test the psychic, you will get pretty much what you are looking for. The inability of the psychic to connect with your energy.
When I was younger (like senior high-school younger) and did readings for fun instead of as my full-time job, I tried a reading for someone who said she wanted one, but who really didn’t want me to ‘find out’ anything about her. I got a lot of impressions and pictures in my head, but they were of a closed door, of a large door with a wooden slab across it with a big padlock, a swamp, something like a photo of someone, but it was all fuzzy and blurry, a guard dog blocking a gate. This was my first experience with someone who really didn’t want me to see anything, but pretended she did. It was a great learning experience for me because prior to that I had not experienced someone that was trying to shut me out so drastically.
Another way to shut down your energy is to simply be so skeptical that nothing can flow. A healthy dose of skepticism can be helpful, I am a skeptic myself. As a psychic that is charging for my services, I SHOULD be able to share things with you that there’s no way I could know without being psychic. However, walking into a reading with HUGE a “Test the Psychic”, skeptical attitude/energy is like going to a dentist and refusing to open your mouth! It defeats the whole purpose. A little skepticism is okay, too much and you are wasting your money.
Expecting the psychic (me), to be a mind reader. This NEVER works, it’s silly and a waste of my time, and your money. I am NOT a MIND READER, never have been, never will be. I pick up a LOT of information, but I get it from your energy, not your “mind”. Remember, when I am connecting, I am connecting to Spirit, Guides, Higher Self, Universe. They don’t care about most of the 3D stuff that you and I might care about. The whole idea behind this communication is what you NEED to know. Read that again… What you NEED to know. Not what you WANT to know. It’s not that they won’t share things that you WANT to know about. It’s more that without you coming out and asking the question they won’t bother. I don’t need to know all the circumstances surrounding your life to give you good information, nor do they. But I also can’t read your mind and know what is important TO YOU you if you do not ask.
Usually when I do readings, I START. I share all the impressions/feelings/pictures/words etc. that I am getting. As I am talking I do need to know if what I am saying is making any sense to you. However, if I start to see things, and you say “I know that, what about….”, or “Yeah, I know that, but move on to ……”, it shuts down the energy of further communication for you. Not completely ALL the time, but if there is something that your guides want you to know, or something that you need to know FIRST, before moving on, then shutting that part down will keep the rest from flowing. Imagine sitting down with a friend and the minute they start talking you say “Shut up”, chances are, they will.
As an example (we’ll use work), if there are changes coming up for you, and your Higher Self (You), wants you to know about them so that you can be prepared for them so that things work out for you in the best possible way, and you were to say “I don’t want to change jobs, that’s it period. Don’t tell me any more about that, I want to know about my finances and where I’ll be living”.
Well, your Guides and/or Higher Self were just trying to tell you about changes coming up for you so that you could deal with things in the most productive way. You have just shut them right down. You should realize that by talking about your job they were trying to HELP you to deal with your finances and your home situation? You need to look at a whole big picture. By saying “I don’t want PERIOD” you have shut down any further HELPFUL information.
I have said many times we create our reality. And we do. However, sometimes in trying to create our ideal reality, things around us might shift and change. Maybe not in the way we anticipated, or in the way we would have liked to see them go, but in the end, we do get what we have been creating. When you shut this down, you shut down your ability to create, and you shut down anyone who is trying to communicate with you (either through a psychic or your own intuition). Going with the flow, really helps.
