Finding the Right Psychic Reader
First, let me start by saying that I believe everyone has psychic abilities. However, that does not mean that everyone can do a psychic reading. I, for one, get asked by many of my customers if I would do a reading for them. Although I am very sensitive to energetic fields around me I have never developed any clairvoyant abilities that would allow me to perform a “fortune telling reading.”
In this cybernetic age finding an honest reader is a challenge that requires some education on the part of the individual seeking the spiritual advice. There are as many types of readers out there as there are people interested in getting there fortune told. I believe that many of these readers are extremely gifted. I myself have met a few of them and have been impressed by the clarity and accuracy of their messages. Before you invest your hard earned money in getting someone to do a reading for you make sure you understand what kind of reader will best suit your needs.
Starting with this posting, I will dedicate the upcoming blogs to researching the different types of readers out there. We will also try to examine the “signs” that you should look for in order to determine if you are dealing with a real psychic or a fake. We will begin our exploration of real versus fake readers by taking a look at what you can expect from a reading by a Santero or Babalawo.
Santeros and Babalawos:
Unfortunately there are many internet sites that offer readings by a Palero, Santeria Priest or Babalawo and not all of them are real. Santeria and Palo are religions that take years of practice, study and dedication. These religions require initiation and the practice of regular religious rituals to invoke and honor numerous deities. If you are seeking the psychic advice of a Yoruba practitioner it is best to understand their affiliations. Any true practitioner would be willing to disclose who their initiators or godparents were.
You will also want to ask if the reader will do an “ifa” reading. Only Babalawos can perform an Ifa reading as this is the highest form of divination in the religion. Please be aware that divination in the Yoruba religion is not considered fortune telling. Even though, a skilled Babalawo will often dig into a person’s past, present and future, the purpose is not tell the client what the future holds. The purpose of and Ifa divination is to help you align yourself with your destiny and the divine will of the Orishas (Yoruba deities).
The second highest form of divination in the Yoruba religion is the reading with caracoles or Cowrie Shells. These Shells consecrated by the Orishas are used by Santeros to convey the message from these deities. The reader throws the shells and counts the number of shells that fall face up in order to get to the Letra or sign that applies to the client. In this way the client receives the Divine message that will help him or her achieve balance and harmony in his or her life. This kind or reading seeks to prescribe the client with the necessary tools to live in synchrony with the universal force of goodness, abundance and nature.
