Should I give psychic readings to my family and friends? I’ve been asked this question many times, so I figured it was time to write a post about it.
And like lots of things in the spirit realm, there isn’t a straight yes or no answer.
The first thing you should ask yourself is:
Do I want to give psychic readings to my family and friends?
Personally? I don’t usually give readings to loved ones. When I’m not reading for clients or teaching psychic development, I like to hang out with my family and relax. Plus, I want to make sure I have the time and energy to connect with my own intuitive guidance every day, too. :)
But most important? I know that I am too close to my loved ones (and biased) to give them clear insight (more about that in a minute).
Of course, if my mom wants my intuitive feelings about something, I’d give it to her… but first I’d ask her: what’s your gut feeling?
And if my mom still wants a reading, I’d refer her to a trusted colleague.
My experience giving psychic readings to friends
I had a friend named Elizabeth that I met at a psychic development class in 2000. Every day, she called me to “tune in” because she had “one quick question.”
At that time, I was an intuitive and mediumship newbie, and thought it was fun. But after months of this, I started to wonder if Liz was using me to get free readings.
So I started asserting myself and setting boundaries. And guess what? After doing this a few times, I never heard from her again. I was sad to think she was using me, but it was a lesson I had to learn. Food for thought, right?
Should You Give Psychic Readings to Loved Ones?
Here’s the thing: Most of us are too close to our loved ones to see things 100% objectively. And if you’re new in your psychic development, you’re still learning to trust your vibes. Add to that your love and concern for your friends, and it can get tricky.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t help your loved ones, but don’t pressure yourself if you’re not ready.
On the flip side, if you feel as though you:
- Can put your personal feelings aside
- Trust your intuitive gifts
- Enjoy giving readings to your friends
Then go for it! The most important thing is that you are comfortable giving psychic readings.
Does your loved one want intuitive guidance?
What happens if you get a psychic hit about your loved one when they haven’t asked for it? Should you tell them or not?
Well, here’s what I recommend:
If you have intuitive info for your friend, ask their permission to share it with them first.
It’s super ethical to explain that you’ve got a vibe about something, and ask if it’s okay to share your feeling. In other words, don’t just blurt it out. :) Be respectful and get their permission first. If they say no, then keep the info to yourself.
Tip: Don’t worry one bit. You will totally learn how to control your abilities, and turn them on and off.
Giving psychic readings to family and friends is a personal choice.
- If you want to read for family and friends, set boundaries so you don’t get worn out.
- And if you don’t want to give readings to loved ones, that’s totally okay, too!
Whatever you decide, remember that giving psychic readings should be enjoyable and for the highest good of all. Keep that golden rule in mind, and you will do great!
