Confessions of a Soul Reader

I’m not really clairvoyant. Goodness. Isn’t that a strange thing for a professional psychic to say?

I’ve spent most of my professional psychic career feeling… less than. I felt that way because I couldn’t pull specific physical details out of the air. I just read differently. Yikes. Who likes or even wants to be different? Not me. But here’s the prob. I’m a seventh generation psychic. All the Wise Women that came before me were clairvoyant. My mother was a brilliant, gifted psychic. She pulled details out of the air. She even helped solve crimes. I’ve never solved a crime. I never found a missing child. Jeez… What am I doing here!?!? I just “see” feelings. I just “read” souls. I didn’t even know what clairsentient meant. We never used that word. I was taught Tarot at age four. I learned how to read by the Tarot. I learned early that not to read Tarot was blasphemy.

So, if I don’t see pictures, or get clues from guides, how do I read souls? I read souls by clairsentience. Now, I’m not so arrogant as to try define this very broad term. But I would like to explain what it means to me. It’s kinda like this. I know my first name. My mother and father gave it to me over forty-one years ago. I know my name. I don’t like my name, but I know it’s mine. I just know. So, following that thought to a reasonable conclusion, I read souls by knowing. I believe that I truly see the “real” you. I don’t mean any disrespect, but I think it’s similar to how the Divine sees you. That’s a good thing.

When I have a session, I always ask the same questions in the beginning. That is, after I thank the client for calling me. I needed a way to make clients feel a little more comfortable with me. So I ask them their name and Sun Sign. If there is another person involved, I need their name and Sun Sign. I ask the biggest area of concern. The client then drops their guard, and I connect. Then I can help.

It took a long time to be comfortable with this process, let alone confident. I came from a family line of Tarot readers. It was sacred to my people. But I had to face the truth that I had a different path. That didn’t happen so quick. That took time. It took trust. In order for me to be a useful clairsentient, I had to learn to trust myself.

When a psychic has guides, they usually have known them for a while. They build a relationship. They learn to trust each other. That was not my path. I had to learn to trust myself. With no pictures, smells or voices. I met the Divine in me. It was a cool process. I’m hoping that was a good answer.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

    I stumbled across this as I was prompted to search the word soul reader because in trying to discover my path in this type of life has been so challenging since where I’m from anything like this or pertaining to this just means the person is crazy or had some kind of drug problem, since I don’t have either I’m left struggling to find my way. I’ve read tarot for about 10 years but quit reading because there were too many energies I did not know I was sensitive to and felt had to stop doing and thwn my cards and personal things were stolen. However I have been being lead to rediscover my abilities and start connecting with who I REALLY am. This posting I felt I almost could have wrote myself except for no one I know of in my family has these abilities at least not that I am aware of. But thank you for this I feel better knowing I’m not totally alone in these areas and feelings
    Grateful to have seen this.

    Hi Ivy,

    Yes…..your article proves just how different and unique the intuitive process is and works for psychics……..we come in all shapes and sizes and our intuive process is as individual as our fingerprints are. You did a great job of explaining that.

    Happy Birthday by the way.

    Blessed Be )O(

    How open and honest you are, Ivy! That would not be easy for many with your family history. Great explaination you gave too! I have a very strong intuition and sometimes it scares the people around me. I think it’s being defensive most of the time because they know that I know when they are not being upfront or honest. I used to keep quite because I didn’t want people to not like me or think I’m ‘strange’. It took me a long time to see my ‘intuition’ as a gift from God, learning to speak up when I feel something. Even if that makes some people accountable for ‘not so honest or pure souls’.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Ivy!!!
    Blessings & Big Hug,
