A psychic reading is a specific attempt to discern information through the use of heightened perceptive abilities; or natural extensions of the basic human senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and instinct. These natural extensions are claimed to be clairvoyance (vision), clairsentience (feeling), Claircognizance (factual knowing) and Clairaudience (hearing) and the resulting statements made during such an attempt.[1] The term is commonly associated with paranormal-based consultation given for a fee in such settings as over the phone, in a home, or at psychic fairs.[2] Though psychic readings are controversial and a focus of skeptical inquiry,[3][4] a popular interest in them persists.[5] Extensive experimentation to replicate psychic results in laboratory conditions have failed to find any precognitive phenomena in humans.[6] Psychic reading is pseudoscience.[7] A cold reading technique allows psychics to produce seemingly specific information about an individual from social cues and broad statements.[8]



is the theoretical basis for the reading of Tarot cards, a subset of cartomancy, which is the practice of using cards to gain insight into the past, present or future by posing a question to the cards. The reasoning behind this practice ranges from believing the result is guided by a spiritual force, to belief that the cards are instruments used to tap either into a collective unconscious or into the subject's own creative, brainstorming subconscious.[citation needed]

Tarot cards were originally used in games and are still used for that purpose in many parts of Europe.

Tarot cards are considered pseudoscience, and the readings made from the cards have no scientific evidence or merit.

Energy Crystal Readings

Crystal balls have been used for scrying for thousands of years. Scrying is the art of looking into a reflective surface, such as glass, water, a mirror, or a crystal, to gain mystical insight.

Most everyone is familiar with the image of a gypsy fortune-teller gazing into her crystal ball and divining someone’s future. Along with this image comes the common misconception that crystal balls have magical powers that enable them to foretell the future.

However, the images seen with a crystal ball aren’t the foretelling of future events, but rather images from deep within one’s subconscious mind, and the crystal ball is the door through which these subconscious thoughts can be accessed. When using a crystal ball, a trance-like state is induced that dissociates one’s consciousness, enabling information from the subconscious to pass through the mind’s eye. It is here the images are seen, not in the crystal itself.


Q: What is the difference between a psychic and a medium?

A: Generally, the word “psychic” describes a wide range of senses and perceptions which exceed our usual five physical senses of sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell.

Psychics receive information about events and people from the vibrational energy of a person, place, or thing. A psychic can “read a person’s energy” and may perceive past, present, or future events in that person’s life.

A medium communicates directly with spirits. Every medium possesses psychic ability but not every psychic possesses mediumistic ability. The session at which translation of this vibrational energy into recognizable information may take place is commonly known as a “reading.” It may also be referred to as “discernment.” To discern is to perceive or recognize, and that is what a medium does.

Q: Who should I see, a psychic or a medium?

A: If a person wants to know what is going on in his or her life, consulting a psychic is appropriate. If the person is seeking communication with or from someone who has passed, a medium is the proper choice.

Shawnee Psychic is not a “fortune teller.” Spirits are able to see past, present, and future because a spirit is not hindered by a physical body, nor by the limitations of a finite existence of living in the material world. On occasion, spirits will reveal future events, but that is up to the spirit not the medium. It appears that from a spirit’s perspective that the prediction of future events is of little importance. This may be because time as we understand it does not exist on the Other Side. A spirit is an immortal living being and as such exists in an infinite state. Humans exist in a finite state and the “future” which we tend to worry so much about, is of little concern to spirits who have a perspective we cannot even begin to comprehend.

Q: What is the purpose of Spirit Contact?

A: Spirit contact helps to validate our belief that God exists, Heaven/the Other Side exists, our souls are immortal living spirits, we can communicate with these spirits and that we will be reunited with our loved ones when it is our time to cross into the Light. One of the primary purposes of spirit communication is healing and resolution. For those suffering from the loss of a loved one, contact with the spirit of a loved one can be an important therapeutic step in the journey through grief.

Q: Is contacting a spirit frightening?

A: Spirit contact is a conversation with someone you love. The spirit who loves you is not going to upset you. A loved one in spirit wants you to be happy and at peace with that person’s crossing to The Other Side. Love transcends physical death, and the last thing a spirit wants is to cause fear. It has been my experience that spirits want to help you heal, to help you to forgive or attain forgiveness and to resolve any issues that remain with the person in spirit.

Many fictional movies and books have portrayed spirits as scary entities. Such portrayals are used for entertainment purposes and to boost sales. On the other hand, spirit contact through a legitimate medium can be a healing and uplifting experience.

Q: Can contact with a spirit through a medium help me get through the grieving process?

A: Spirit contact can help in your healing process. Coping with the loss of a loved one is something no one wants to deal with, but unfortunately at some point in life, we all must. Finding the right path through grief is essential to healing.

A discernment can help you to make a connection with a loved one who has crossed over, but spirit contact will not take away the pain of what happened. For some people though, it may be an important step in the healing process.

Q: What do you do as a medium?

A: A medium facilitates a connection between someone here and a spirit on the Other Side. The Other Side is a term used to describe Heaven or the Afterlife. A legitimate medium like Psychic Shawnee does not conjure or summons spirits. A medium connects with a spirit who choose to be perceived. The spirit of loved one is quite capable of communicating, and if that spirit wants to communicate, the spirit will adjust his or her vibrational frequency so the medium can communicate with the spirit.
