Psychic Phone Readings: 5 Do’s and Don’ts for Best Beginnings
Best Beginnings: 5 Do’s and Don’t’s
The first few minutes of your call lay the foundation for the rest of the reading.
Your caller needs to feel that you are truly psychic so move right into your reading.
It’s important your callers never feel like you are wasting their time and money or that you are fishing for information.
With several decades of psychic work under my belt I can confidently offer you several tips. At the end of the article I would love it if you let me know what yours are.
Do These 5 Things:
1. Answer your phone on the first ring, not the second or third. Your caller is waiting for you. They are likely in some sort of charged emotional state so respond to them as quickly as you can.
2. TGI: Thank, Greet and Identify: Always thank your caller for contacting you and your network. Always give your line name, extension number and ask their name.
Your caller is paying for every second on the phone with you so establish your connection as quickly and kindly as you can.
A good example is, “Thank you for calling the network, my name is Blue at extension 1235, may I ask your name please? “
3. Listen: What your caller says, or doesn’t say, in the first few minutes will tell you everything you need to know about their state of mind, why they are calling or how best to proceed with your work.
Listen to their words and how they say them. Bear in mind their emotional state as you begin your work and adapt your style to meet their needs.
4. Connect: Your guidance should be positive, dynamic and accurate. Your callers need you to be positive and caring in attitude no matter what you are talking about.
Every professional reader keeps their personal feelings and judgement out of their work, but your caller needs to feel that too. Empathize, don’t sympathize.
They want your guidance, not your pity, so shine your light brightly in your work.
5. Don’t Waste time. This is vital to the health of your reading and the relationship with your caller. If they feel you are wasting their time or money, they will disconnect with you or even hang up.
Though you may have the best intentions, callers normally do not want to waste time in meditative exercises before you begin.
Don’t Do These 5 Things:
1. Ask your caller to say her/his name or breathe deeply three times.
2. Ask them to be quiet and calm for any amount of time over a few seconds.
3. Shuffle your cards excessively and ask them to tell you when to stop.
4. Ask them why they are calling – If you ask your client why they are calling, you open yourself up to questions like “shouldn’t you know, you’re the psychic?” It often spirals down from there
5. Ask for personal info such as do you have a spouse/child/partner etc.
or any other question that can viewed as fishing.
Instead take the lead and direct the reading. You are the psychic, so use all your abilities and tools.
Bonus: Here’s 4 Good ways to begin after you greet each other:
1. The moon is in cancer today and I feel you are having some emotional upheaval, let’s look at that.
2. May I ask your zodiac sign? Many callers don’t like to give their birthday or birthyear so asking for their sign is a good alternative.
3. I’d like to start with general reading, is that acceptable for you?
4. I feel you are in transition. Let me tell you what your guides are suggesting.
Be confident, create connection and shine!
