Since you have limited time during a psychic reading, you can make the most of your appointment by having some questions ready to ask ahead of time. So regardless of what type of reading you have, these questions to ask a psychic can help you receive the information you most need.

General Questions to Ask a Psychic

Start with general questions and get more specific as the reading goes along. Likewise, don't be afraid to ask follow-up questions. Asking general questions like these allows important information to come through and doesn't limit the information the psychic receives.

  • What are the most important things I need to know?
  • Where can I best focus my energy right now?
  • What messages do my spirit guides have for me?
  • What choices will I need to make that serve my greatest good?
  • What changes do you see upcoming for me?
  • What types of signs do I receive when the universe is trying to communicate with me?
  • What major changes do you foresee for me in the coming year?
  • What are the most pressing challenges I am currently facing?
  • What challenges could I be handling better?
  • Are there any decisions I've made recently that I need to reconsider?
  • How can I recognize my own intuitive guidance?

Questions About Purpose

Many people struggle to find their true purpose in life, and a psychic can help by connecting you with Divine guidance about this important topic. While many people believe life's purpose is about career, this isn't always the case. Life's purpose may be rooted in spirituality, family, public service, or a multitude of other areas, as well. Zeroing in on your life's purpose (which can change as you grow) can help you live a more productive and joyful life. You can ask a psychic multiple questions about purpose.

Questions to Ask a Psychic Medium

Not all psychics are mediums, but all mediums are psychic, and many provide both general psychic and mediumship readings. If you are consulting with a psychic medium, you may have specific questions about loved ones who have passed. Ask the psychic before you schedule your appointment if they do mediumship readings. If they do, you may wish to have a few questions ready.

  • What do my loved ones who have died want me to know?
  • How can I best communicate in my daily life with loved ones who have died?
  • What should I notice to help me understand when people who have died are trying to communicate with me?
  • What does my loved one want me to know?
  • What is the most important message my loved one who has died wants to communicate?
  • How can I heal my relationship with my loved one who died?

Tips for Asking a Psychic Questions

When working with a psychic, consider the following tips for crafting your own questions.

  • Keep your questions open-ended so you allow any information that is important to come through instead of limiting it to a yes or no (or another single-word) answer.
  • Start with general questions and get more specific.
  • Don't be afraid to ask follow-up questions or seek clarification.
  • In general, the questions that yield the best results are "tell me what I need to know about..." type of questions. Phrasing questions this way allows for the most important and helpful information to come through and facilitates guidance.
  • Think about your session as a form of guidance; you are consulting with higher realms and the psychic is acting as a conduit for the information.
  • There are times when the psychic may answer, "I don't know." While this can be frustrating, allow that answer and follow up with a question such as, "How can I be open to receiving the answer on my own?" Then, be open to and aware of signs that may come up that answer your question. However, realize sometimes the answer is "I don't know" because it isn't information you need or that will be helpful at this time.

What Not to Ask a Psychic

A psychic reading is about you and your path in life. Certain questions aren't productive, or they won't offer you information that serves your greatest good. Asking them isn't helpful to the reading and may actually block the flow of productive information. Some things to avoid include:

  • Seeking personal/private information about other people
  • Yes or no questions or non-open-ended questions
  • Asking the psychic to read your mind
  • Specific questions about death such as when you're going to die, how you're going to die, or when/how other people will die
  • Questions designed to "trap" the psychic, such as "What's my middle name?" or "What is the name of my grandmother's second husband?" While it would be great if psychic information worked this way, it usually doesn't, and it may create blocks that stop information from coming through.
  • Seeking the names of future partners
  • Asking for lottery numbers
  • Any "will I" question, such as, "Will I get cancer?" or "Will I get married?"
  • Any "should I" question, such as "Should I quit my job?" or "Should I take this medication?"
  • Asking for a medical diagnosis

Be Open to the Psychic's Answers

You are paying for your consultation with a psychic and chances are, you'd like your session to be as helpful and productive as possible. By preparing open-ended questions designed to elicit information that serves your highest good, keeping an open mind, allowing communication, and receiving it with an open heart, you can make your psychic consultation a special session of sharing with a source of higher guidance.
