What is an Intuitive Reading?

Bits and Pieces, Online Classes/Retreats

Because I’ve received many questions about what an intuitive empathsreading actually is, I thought I would give a general overview. Please note that intuitive readings vary depending on the person giving the reading, and the person who is having the reading. That being said, here are some basic things for you to know:

Intuitive readings are different for everyone. Depending on the person conducting the reading, the focus can be on anything from releasing blocked energy and past trauma, tapping into past lives, working through a current hardship, or helping a client to activate their highest potential and life work. As the name implies, the sessions are usually led intuitively, and any professional reader will tell you each of their sessions are unique and highly individual.

Typically, during an intuitive reading there is a lot processing, releasing, and transmuting of energies in the mental, emotional, and physical energy bodies. For some, intuitive readings can feel like a “talk therapy” session. For others (especially those who are highly sensitive to energies) it can feel like having psychic surgery. It all depends on what the client and intuitive reader intend for the session.

Most intuitive readings provide in-depth information about a vetruvian-mans-energyperson’s soul journey and life path. They do this by tapping into different dimensions of consciousness, reading subtle energy, and even accessing the Akashic Records (a term used in theosophy to describe a “library” of mystical knowledge supposedly encoded in a non-physical realm of existence). For many, intuitive readings help provide clarity on life purpose or karmic cycles.

Intuitive readings are different from psychic readings. Most intuitive readers do not read the future, but rather read a person’s individual energy (a subtle distinction). Everyone is intuitive and everyone has the ability to read energy, but some people posses more pronounced strengths in using their intuitive gifts to access extra-sensory information.

A good intuitive reader will always point a client to their own intuitive powers and help them access their own inner-knowing. When a man-and-earthreader fosters a dependence on their “special gifts” and services, it is usually always unhealthy for both parties. A successful intuitive reading should leave the client feeling empowered and more knowledgeable about their own gifts and abilities, rather than feeling a need for the reader to “fix” them.

When searching for an intuitive reader it is important to listen to your own feelings about a person. If their website or presence feels disempowering, their methods most likely result similarly.  Look at testimonials on their page and pay attention to how people felt after their session. Did they feel empowered and more in touch with themselves, or are they simply describing the “amazing” gifts of the reader? Look for readers who put the focus on the client rather than themselves. And most importantly, trust your feelings.

  1. Good morning, I saw this page earlier and something resonates loudly with me so I thought I’d message. For he past 6 months I have gone through some incredibly life changing events 🙂 I met my spirit. We reconnected. She’s showed me how to trust and not be afraid. Ego is no longer in control. I’m free. In doing this, my energy has started to flow freely. Meditation is easier because my mind isn’t chained. Energy work and healing is coming with great speed and I’m blessed to have my husband going through these steps as well ❤ we work with energy a lot and I'm blown away at the things we are leaning and feeling.

    I saw that you give away a few free readings a month and was wondering if there is another one coming up. I'm interested in how this works and having one done for better understanding, not just of myself, but the world Around me. I know through me learning I can help spread more healing and love.

    Currently we are trying to build a group of a few people we've met in person and who are interested in doing energy work. But are interested in spreading out and meeting others online to connect with as well. My sister is now also on this path and leaning her energies as well. This is such a special time. And I look forward to seeing more from your page.

    Have a wonderful And blessed day and holiday celebrations ❤

    Celeste Bourne ❤

    1. I do give away free intuitive readings once in awhile. I will probably be doing one next month, so stayed tuned. I always post them on the blog. You can sign-up to receive an email when we post so you know when it to enter, or simple check back on the website in Jan. So happy to hear you are awakening in such a powerful way! Beautiful things are happening on the planet right now! It’s amazing to see it all unfold! Much love to you!

  2. Hi Amanda. Great article, thank you. I wanted to ask your view on whether intuitive readings are the same as a reading with a psychic? I feel there are differences however subtle and sometimes it feels totally different. What would you say about being an intuitive and being a psychic? Similar, the same or different for you?

    1. I feel they are completely different. Usually in a psychic reading it is more about reading potentials (future) and telling you stuff you already know about yourself (from the past). Intuitive readings (at least the way I do them and have experienced them) involve working with the emotional body and the current vibrations a person holds (more healing oriented). But as I said in the article, intuitive readings are as different as the people giving them, so it really just depends on who is doing the reading.

  3. interesting article and exactly how i view mine. I do probably 10 a month and have not charged for it ever. I feel very awkward about that. Intuitive readings are totally different then a psychic reading. I liken them to walking into some ones home in the dark and feeling around and having them assist you in making you way around. When the person want to let go, you can accomplish amazing transformations and healing.

    1. Well said. And a great way to understand intuitive readings. I know some people feel uncomfortable charging for readings, and that makes sense. If something doesn’t resonate than you definitely shouldn’t do it. I use to not charge, but for me it felt unbalanced and not an equal energy exchange. But everyone is different. 🙂

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for the post. Would like to explore further on this. Is there any free readings coming up in the near future? Would like to be part of it.
