Have I understood this correctly?
I know a little bit about this subject :rolleyes:
Readings are about "communications" which entails empathy and as Brad Henderson stated so well "a dance" in which Reader & Sitter move about an issue in such a way as to lend benefit to one another; the Reader, learning (if they have a half-way opened mind) while the sitter is able to use you as the sounding board required at the moment.
I've found that most of the Readings I do are nothing other than speding some positive time with lonely people. If I got rid of the cards and time limit, I'd be a male escort I guess... :D
"Hits" and the myth of "prediction" are concepts embraced by magicians and cynics. Though there is an important reason to have the client believe you are "in touch" with them and can "see into them" it is more akin to how a child feels when addressed by the parent who seems to have eyes everywhere and simply "knows" what is what. There's nothing "mystical" involved but there is alot of implied psychological influence that even the pedigreed and paper trained counselors of the world manipulate to their advantage... it's simply the natural path assumed by the sitter when trust and hope are conveyed.
As you know Les, I think two of the best tools for "Psychic Develope" to come out in the past year are Millard's PSYCHIC SKILLS WORKSHOP and Kenton's MIND READING tome. Aside from learning to work with and within a legit system such as the Tarot or Numerology, the ideas and principles shared in these two compilations are pure dynamite!
