Although every person comes to a consultation (read-ing) for their
own reasons, some subjects and questions within that subject are
worked on with more regularity than others. Almost all clients seek
help on specific topics, but some request general or specific
assessment and prediction readings.
The subjects identified here represent those requested and worked
on from the most to the least. The six areas here represent the
subject matter of over ninety percent
of my readings.
The topic of love relationships is by far the most frequestly addressed. The typical reading
of this type is assessment in nature and provides insights into questions like: What is
going on in this relationship in present time? How does he or she really think and feel
about me, the relationship? How does our future look (nature, quality and direction or
trend)? What are his or her intentions for the relationship? What guidance should I (we)
follow given the situation I am in (we are in), or what can I do to produce the best
Insights about relationships that fall under the umbrella of family, business, and
friendships, are less frequently sought. The questions raised here are usually aimed at
getting answers to questions like: How is this individual doing in their situation? What are
their thoughts, feelings or perceptions about me or us or about something of particular
interest? What is the nature, quality, and direction of my relationship to them or their
relationship to someone or some thing.
The subject of love relationships not currently on "the rada" makes up the third category
of relationship readings. In most cases clients in this category are looking for optimism
and hope regarding relationships that they want to experience in the future. The typical
questions about unknown future partners tend to be: When will I meet my future spouse
or significant other? How will we meet? Where will me meet? What will they be like? and
How will the relationship work? While these questions will not produce accurate readings,
self-reflection questions such as: Why am I not in relationship now? What kind of partner
or relationship will work best for me? What trouble to do tend to bring into relationships
that I can change? and What can I do to attract a loving relationship? These self-reflection
and guidance question can be answered with accuracy and help clients think about their
future relationship with greater clarity.
Job and Career
Readings in this area range from the simple and straightforward to the general and more
philosophical. The straightforward reading tends to be more job-related and addresses
well-defined questions such as: What is the best course of action or path to take given the
choices I face? What if? What is the nature of this situation? What is taking place now and
what outcome can I expect? What is the future for my career or job?
Career type questions tend to be more general in nature and often address less well-
defined questions like: What career am I best suited for? What can I do to resolve my
current job or career problems? What steps can I take to create the best outcome for my
job or career?
Business and Personal Projects
Assessment and forecast type insights are the most common requests in this area. This
insight often takes the form of predicting the outcome and giving guidance on the best
course of action for a variety of proposed, new or existing business ventures or
The types of business situations and questions asked and answered include, but are not
limited to: Established companies and self-employed individuals, legal guidance and
lawsuit outcomes given to individuals and lawyers, individual stock and investment
predictions, selecting the best design for books, proposals, real estate, buy and sell
guidance and outcomes, and decision-making.
Readings in the health area deal with answering questions about a great number of
specific issues. To get the most useful insights client must first explain their experience of
the problem or symptoms. Given this basic background I can get insights from the deeper
mind that address: 1) the psychic and spiritual nature of their situation, 2) its origins or
causes, 3) what actions will help or hurt the healing process, and 4) the future direction
or outlook of the condition.
A sampling of specific question is: What do I need to change in my life to get well? What
is keeping me from the wellness I seek? What is the nature of my problem or illness? Why
am I having this particular illness or problems? What can I do to improve my health?
What can I do to solve my problem? In some cases after feeling better clients ask: Why
did I need this illness in the first place or what was the lesson to be learned?
Clients who pursue the subject of spiritual growth seek to discover and align themselves
with the will of God. The basic principle behind those who seek help in this area may be
stated as, “I am not asking what Spirit can do for me, but what can I do for Spirit.” These
questions are transpersonal in nature and tend to be open-ended. While most clients seek
spiritual guidance through psychic readings to gain clarity about their personal lives and
relationships on some level, those seeking spiritual growth as their goal are looking for
ways to put God's ideas first and transcend their personal lives and relationships.
To know God is to be God.
Emma Curtis Hopkins
I have found the following sampling of questions to be helpful for those seeking spiritual
growth. What is God's vision for my life? What do I need to do to be happy? What must I
let go of in order to do God's will? What talents do I have to assist me in carrying out
God's will? What keeps me from having what’s best for my highest good? Who am I?
Where am I going? What am I really doing with my life? Where did I come from? What is
my relationship to God and how can I improve it?
Assessment & Prediction
Requests for assessment and prediction readings (general or specific) usually come from
first-time clients or clients new to the process of getting a reading. Most clients including
new ones will have some fairly specific topic or questions they want to look into. Since
the assessment and prediction does not necessarily come with a topic from the client, I
usually suggest that we answer questions like: What is going on in my life or situation?
What is the nature of my personality (a kind of who am I question)? How will the next six-
months to a year go for me? Where are my opportunities? What result will I get regarding
the outcome of the situation I am worried about? What are my assets or strengths? What
shortcomings do I need to work on so that I am less limited by them? Answers to these
questions often lead general reading clients to extend the reading into some specific
Accuracy in Readings
In general, there are three factors that tend to affect the accuracy of reading. First,
readings that deal with subjects rooted in the past, the present, and near future have high
accuracy (over eighty to ninety percent). But readings about distant future and complete
unknowns are the least accurate because there is no way to validate the insights.
Second, the more information collected on a subject the greater the accuracy about the
subject being examined. The more the client knows about the subject the more accurate
the reading. For example, lost and found readings are among the least accurate. Readings
on current situations such as relationships tend to be the most accurate as clients already
know quite a bit and can better understand additional insights about the subject matter.
When clients know nothing about a subject it is difficult for them to validate the reading.
For example, the answer to a question like, “who will I meet in the future and when will I
meet them?” cannot be validated in the present and accuracy is impossible to determine
until the event takes place.
Third, clients that look for simple yes or no outcomes, rather than answers to open-ended
questions will need to accept that about twenty percent of the time the answer to such
questions is both yes and no. Amomg the many reason for uncertain outcomes is not
asking the right questions, making asumptions that the unconscious answers in black and
white terms, and getting frustrated with insights in shades of gray. While most of us like
simple outcomes and being in control, the deeper mind always addresses the whole which
may not be explained by simple either or outcomes. Examples of questions that limit the
deeper minds ability to give insights include those that aim to get specific numerical
information, names, and moral judgments as answers to questions like: When is it going
to happen or when did it happen? How much or how many or how big? What numbers will
open the combination lock or win the lottery? Who did it? Did he or she commit the
