Sometimes, when you hear about someone's psychic experience it sounds very much like a fortune teller type story or some type of mystical thing that happened. My experience was not like that at all. I'll tell you about it in a moment, but first I want to touch upon what, in my opinion, phone psychics are really helpful for in life.
It seems to me that if you are going to call on one, you should have some ideas as to what type of answers you are seeking. This may seem a bit obvious, after all, isn't that the whole purpose anyway. True, but you would be surprised how often it is that people don't know what they want. If you want to simply talk to someone, then call a friend. If you want some direct assistance with some critical issue in your life, then call a psychic. Now, I would do some checking around with friends and others who have contacted one because there are some unscrupulous people out there just trying to take you for your money without giving you any useful advice. The reason why phone psychics can be helpful apart from friends and family is that they have the benefit of distance from you in a personal nature. Now, what they are more connected with because of this is your energetic nature. More to the point, they are able to sense where you are at a block within yourself to your higher intelligence or higher self if you will.
So, back to the story. How I met the phone psychic I contacted was from a referral through a friend who had spoken with him. It was actually the first time I had done a personal reading like this so it was quite interesting. He used a set of tarot cards that were called the Voyager cards. These cards use images and great visual elements to convey the meaning behind the card. This was quite interesting, though I didn't fully understand and appreciate the significance initially. I was told to revisit the explanation - which was taped for me - in a period of time to re-digest it. This was great advice as it made more sense the next time around. The second part of the psychic reading I had was to do my natal chart. This consisted of a pretty neat computerized program that was loaded on his Macbook giving out a precise position of the planets and moons, etc at the time of my birth. What is interesting with this aspect to the reading is that it matters almost to a 15 minute time frame when you were born, so getting the accurate time is critical here. What I learned was more about the various larger guiding forces that influence and shape my life. There is no magical moment here or some enlightening 'you will find your soulmate by Friday' type of stuff in these psychic readings. Most phone psychics don't perform that type. What you learn is more about how the timing of making different choices in your life matter. In other words, if your phone psychic highlights the fact that since your signs reflect a greater ability to make career choices in the last week of October, you could benefit most by making your decisions around that time. This could help you make plans prior to that and begin researching options, etc. so that your best chances will be when all things are 'lined up' for you. This type of information doesn't have to come from phone psychics, it could be from a live psychic as well.
