Look at the FAQs below for more on how to prepare for a reading and what to expect. Contact Brigid to learn more.
Why did you book a reading?
Reflect on what it is that is on your mind that caused you to make an appointment for a reading. Take a little time before your session and think about the questions you would like to ask, or the areas you would like to cover during your reading.
How important is it for me to be relaxed?
It is totally normal to be nervous prior to a reading. However, when you relax it really helps the energy flow. It is understandable to be nervous, especially if you have never had a reading before but in most cases, you will start to relax a few minutes into the session.
What should I ask?
The best questions to ask are open-ended questions as it leads the way for an in-depth exploration of an issue. This way you get the clearest answers to what you want to know and you will have a much more powerful reading as a result.
Ask questions that begin with why, how, or what so you are really opening the door to exploring an issue in depth. If you want to get to the root of the issue, then asking what steps you can take to address it or change it will offer you more clarity.
For example, it is better to ask:
What am I supposed to learn from my relationship with my mum? or How can I repair my relationship with my mum? than to ask: Will I ever get along with my mum?” which can easily be answered yes or no.
What about my energy?
Energy is key to a powerful reading and keeping the energy flowing and at a high vibration during a reading is super important. One way to do this is to be open to all possibilities. In your reading, discuss the issues you came for and welcome the unexpected as well.
Are you reading my mind?
I can’t read your mind! I read your energy and the information that comes from the universe for you through different channels such as cards or your own vibration, oinfromation from your spriti guides. The best thing you can do is just relax as I am not going inside your head.
Who does all the talking?
We both talk. While it is true that as the reader I will be doing most of the talking, that doesn’t mean you have to sit solemnly in silence. In fact, you should participate to keep the energy going. You can interact with me without giving anything away. It really helps if you give me feedback as it allows the energy to keep flowing, even an enthusiastic yes that makes sense keeps the energy high.
What if it doesn’t make any sense?
Try not to have preconceived ideas about what you think you should be told as you may be disappointed when you don’t hear what you were expecting. If most of the information makes sense, go with it. Keep asking questions. Sometimes, things might not make sense during the reading, but you’ll have a moment of awareness later on and things will fall into place.
Can I take notes or record my session?
You are welcome to take notes or record the session. In fact, I recommend you do. Even if you have a memory like an elephant, take notes or make a recording. Also, things sometimes come up that don’t make sense at the time of a reading and may make sense to you later on, or someone in the family might be able to confirm the information.
How do I mentally prepare?
Apart from thinking about your intention in asking for a reading it is important to never drink alcohol or take recreational drugs before a reading as this lowers your vibration and can negatively affect your energetic fields. Prescription and over the counter medication is fine.
Before your reading
Allow sufficient time for your reading and make sure you will not be distracted by other people or events. Have a quiet environment so you can be open without worrying about if other people will hear you
A powerful reading cannot take place if you are distracted. During your reading, you really want to focus on the task at hand. If you are having a phone or zoom reading, make sure you are in a quiet, comfortable place with no distractions, that means no kids running around, turning off your phone and ignoring the door bell etc.
Set a clear intention for your reading
Send out your intention to the universe for a positive and clear reading, light a candle, diffuse some oils or incense, still your mind and focus. Then write down all your negative thoughts on some paper and burn this to release it.
Start by being present
The most important thing to do is make a commitment to leave your worldly cares behind. This is your time, so be fully present with an open mind and heart.
Do I need to ask a question?
Yes you can come with a specific question in mind or you can ask for a general reading.
Set a clear intention
Set a clear and positive intention that you want and deserve the best reading possible. Remember the universe hears not only your words, but also your energetic vibration. Your thoughts and words are only part of the manifestation equation. Set about lifting your energy so that good things happen to you and you get good readings.
don't be silent
When you have your reading, have a quiet and still mind with a hint of anticipation. A reading is a two-way street for both of us. The best readings are those that involve you participating actively asking questions. What needs to come through for you from the universe will come through for you and I will do my best to translate it for you.
Enjoy the experience
