An intuitive healer is a practitioner who taps into a deep knowing or spiritual guides to receive information about your journey that can help you navigate relationships, career situations or more in-depth life questioning. Intuitives encapsulate a few different types of healers, from mediums to energy workers—you just have to determine which is the best for you. Intuitive energy healing examines your energetic body and guides you to alignment in your spirit, mind and body, allowing for guidance, wholeness and clarity.
An intuitive reading session is unique to each individual, depending on what you’re seeking. If you’re looking for direction in a career, relationship or another facet of your life, an intuitive can draw on spiritual guides, yours and theirs, to illuminate patterns, connections and knowledge you might not be able to see on your own.
If you’re looking to reconnect with loved ones who have passed you’ll want to seek out a medium, which is an intuitive healer who can connect with the other side. The best mediums view themselves as initiators of an ongoing connection between you and your departed loved one, with the goal of establishing a way to continue the conversation without them.
If you’re struggling with physical ailments, mystery symptoms or chronic illness that you’re hoping to receive guidance about, you’ll want to find a medical intuitive healer. These practitioners tap into spiritual guides to help uncover root causes of mild to moderate symptoms, and can be useful in conjunction with traditional medicine, or as a second, third or fourth opinion. It’s another modality to add to your wellness toolkit to help find relief.
Before an Intuitive Reading Session: Prepare questions to ask in your intuitive session, especially if you’re looking for specific guidance. Your intuitive healer may spend time in meditation, asking for guidance before speaking with you. Plan on taping your session or taking notes and evaluate the reading afterwards.
During an Intuitive Reading Session: Contrary to popular culture, intuitives won’t be accurate 100 percent of the time—a trustworthy intuitive will provide information that connects you with your higher self or truth. They’ll often see, feel or hear symbols, signs or references that reflect your experiences or what may occur in the future. Once you’ve established trust with your intuitive healer (confirmation of dates, names, events, etc.), it’s okay to work with them to understand what they’re seeing—and it’s okay if the information they provide doesn’t hit home. It might not be for you, and it might come true later. Feel empowered to ask questions during your intuitive reading, so you get the most out of it.
After an Intuitive Reading Session: You may feel clearer about your path forward, and more trusting of your own intuition and experiences after an intuitive session. You also may have big emotions—including grief, sadness or feelings of overwhelm—as you process your session. Any reaction is okay, and taking the time to rest, allow yourself to absorb the information and determine how you’ll act on it is important.
Individuals who are extremely effective at reading, moving and accessing energy, whether it be in your body or from the other side, can be harder to find. The great news is that you don’t need to look for an intuitive reader near you—intuitive readings can be done online, or by phone or even email. That means you can access trusted intuitives, no matter where you are! They’ll be able to establish energetic connections and channeling for your highest good, even if they aren’t in the same room as you.
