It is very important to know the different types of psychics and psychic readings that are available to you before you make a choice. Psychic readings are divided into two groups — structured and unstructured. A structured reading involves the use of divination tools such as tarot cards; the lines, bumps and markings on your palms, head and other parts of the body; rune stones; I-Ching coins; tea leaves; astrology birth charts; and numbers, to name a few, to give information and answers about your career, relationships and past, present and future events in your life. Some people who are not true psychic mediums do perform these readings and are extremely accurate and knowledgeable. And many courses are available that can teach you these different divinations; however, a more in-depth reading will be accomplished if given by an individual with true psychic abilities.
In an unstructured reading, the psychic medium relies on his or her psychic gifts to reveal information about your feelings, emotions and relationships. They also have the ability to connect with people who have passed, as well as with people who are currently playing an important role in your life. When getting this type of reading, it is usually best to have a specific question in mind or some past, present or future issues that need resolving. This is the highest form of psychic mediumship and is known as evidential psychic mediumship. The medium will be able to give you specific names, dates and details that only you or someone in your family would know. Also, some are able to read animals’ thoughts and connect with animals who have passed. Someone who is not truly a psychic medium will not be able to give an accurate unstructured reading.
Another type of psychic ability associated with an unstructured type of reading is that of a psychic/spiritual healer. The work of a psychic healer can be described as viewing a person through the psychic’s mind’s eye and looking at people’s energies with respect to their chakras, auras, physical organs and overall health. A psychic senses and identifies where someone’s energy needs unblocking. To do that, some psychic healers associate themselves with one or more guides, calling on their angels, spirit guides and a Divine power for assistance in their work. Because these assistants are not in the physical world, they can aid in obtaining a higher consciousness and ability, which helps the psychic to rebalance a person’s free-flowing energy and accelerate their healing.
Some people attribute the healing that may take place during a psychic healing session as merely a “placebo effect.” Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines the placebo effect as “the improvement in the condition of a patient that occurs in response to treatment but cannot be considered due to the specific treatment used.” In other words, if you believe you can be healed, the healing occurs. Psychic healers have healed many individuals and have done so without using conventional medical treatments. Whether the healing is a placebo effect or not, some documented results from these healings have been miraculous and unexplainable. Keep in mind that any psychic healings should be used in tandem with the current conventional medical options that are available for the specific ailment or disease.
Some common terms used to describe types of psychic abilities are clairalience (the ability to smell scents from the spirit world or from those who are not physically nearby); clairaudience (also known as “clear hearing,” the ability to hear words, sounds and voices from the spirit world); clairgustance (the ability to physically perceive tastes without tasting anything); clairsentience (the ability to sense or feel the presence of those who have passed or to sense the auras and vibrations of all living things); and finally, the most notable of the clairs, clairvoyance (also known as “clear seeing,” the ability to mentally see through the mind’s eye, spirits or people who have passed on. It also refers to the ability to obtain information about a person, place or event without the use of the five senses).
When choosing a psychic, do not be afraid to ask questions about the psychic’s abilities in advance of the reading, especially if you do not have a personal recommendation. Before you sit down with a psychic, remember the expression “Buyer Beware.” Unfortunately, as in every business, there are those who will take advantage of people that are showing any signs of desperation. You should be comfortable with your choice — trust your gut instincts. Some readings can be entertaining and some can be quite healing and comforting.
Through the investigative research efforts of Psychic Library, we have found that a large percentage of the structured readers we randomly contacted or visited were accurate in the use of their specialized divinations. Some of the readers had special psychic abilities and intuition that embellished and enhanced the readings the Psychic Library team received. However, the unstructured readers who were claiming to possess some form of psychic mediumship abilities did not deliver what they promised. In most cases, our expectations were not met. Instead of providing concrete evidence, these would-be psychic mediums were asking our team of researchers to give them information, even though they were in fact claiming to be in touch with the spirit world. For example, rather than giving information about one of the team members health problems, the psychic asked “do you have any health problems you want to discuss?” It seemed that for the most part, our team received cold readings and not true evidential psychic readings. Keep in mind, there are very qualified psychic mediums and intuitive counselors available to you. However, do try and seek out a psychic medium who has been recommended by someone you trust or who has had an accurate, helpful or healing reading.
Hopefully this gives you a better understanding of what to look for when contacting a psychic, whether it is online, at a psychic fair or a bookstore.

The division of palmistry that deals with the study of the shape of the hand and fingers is known as chirognomy. Along with the lines, mounts, markings, hand color, skin texture and flexibility, the shape of the fingers and hands give clues as to what type of characteristics an individual may have. Six of the basic hand shapes studied in palmistry are conic, spatulate, pointed or psychic, square, intellectual or knotted and mixed. However, there is not only one system used to categorize the hand shapes. Another method used assigns each hand shape the characteristics of a natural element: earth, air, fire, water, wood and metal.
The conic or conical hand tends to have smooth fingers and tapered nails. The palms on a conic hand are broader than the fingers and the width of the hand tapers in toward the fingertips. Individuals with this type of hand are usually artistic or impulsive in nature. They are individuals who tend toward the physical pleasures in life rather than the intellectual side. These individuals are easily be influenced by others. They also are experts in the field of the arts and possess great communicative skills. An individual with this shape of hand can sometimes be irresponsible and have a short-fused temper.
A spatulate hand resembles a spatula, and the fingers and hand are flattened and the fingertips are shaped like a spatula. It is very wide at its base and becomes elongated up toward the fingers. Individuals having this shape of hand have a good imagination. They constantly search for something to keep them occupied. Their energy is boundless and they are not at all boring. Most of the time they have a desire for newfound knowledge. Other traits that may be exhibited are impatience, and someone who is unsettled or quick to excite.
A pointed hand is also known as a psychic hand. It tends to be a small and slender one, with fingers that are smooth, with long and narrow fingertips. This hand is quite similar to the conical hand. The palm is medium sized and the thumb appears to be much smaller than the other fingers, however graceful. People with this type of hand are true visionaries and have an idealistic and dreamy nature. They are interested in divinations and the occult and may be quite psychic. However, they also have an affinity for religion and its rituals and traditions. On the other hand, they may be lackadaisical in business matters. Punctuality seems to be of little importance to them and they may also lack self-discipline.
The square hand has a square-shaped palm, a square wrist, with square or boxy fingertips. One of the most outstanding characteristics is a larger thumb. These hands represent persistent and determined individuals. They are not ones who do well in chaos — they seek order and conformity with the laws. These individuals are meticulous in their work and are very punctual. They are people who can be trusted and have no difficulty being honest. They are not confrontational. They are practical and do not usually rely on pure instinct.
The intellectual hand, also known as the knotted hand, is a long pointed hand with knotty and bony features on the fingers, with large palms that are also bony. The nails may sometimes appear both square or conical. These hands usually belong to scholarly individuals who choose to use rational thinking. These people learn quickly and are interested in new and creative ideas.
The mixed hand is a combination of 2 or more of the different palmistry hand types — square, conic, pointed, spatulate, or intellectual. These individuals are friendly, flexible and versatile.

In palmistry, the bracelet lines or rascette lines are considered part of the minor lines. The bracelet/rascette lines are located at the base of the palm on the wrists. The majority of people have three bracelet lines, however, some lucky people have four. Four lines is an indication that one may live to be close to 100. The lines can reveal a person’s longevity, health, destiny, prosperity and the balance or imbalance of the mind, body and spirit. The more solid and unbroken the lines, the better the chances are for a good healthy life.
Listed below are the meanings of the various shapes, depths and lengths of the Bracelet/Rascette Lines:
If the first bracelet line (located closest to the palm) is clear and well defined, without any gaps, breaks or chains, it indicates good health. If it is broken and contains gaps, breaks or chains, it is a sign of overindulgence and not taking responsibility for the proper care of one’s health. If a woman’s line is bowed and turned upward, she will come across many obstacles in her life and endure much pain. There may be childbirth complications or she may only have one or two children. If the second line on the wrist bows upward as the first one does, she may endure pain longer than she expected.
If the first bracelet line is chained and the other lines are clear and defined, this may indicate a life of hard work and difficulty in the earlier years, but hopefully, later in life you will have good fortune.
The second bracelet line, if clear and defined, without any gaps breaks or chains, may indicate financial prosperity and a life you can take joy.
The third bracelet line, if clear and defined, without any gaps breaks or chains, can indicate that you can become influential in the community and a well-known individual amongst your peers.
Note, that if you have only one bracelet line, there is a grave possibility that you may not experience the best health during a period in your lifetime or you may experience bouts of depression. If the first line has a tendency to curve and the next lines are well defined and solid, this is a sign that obstacles were overcome in the early years of life through great effort and hard work to take a healthier path. If your upper bracelet/rascette lines are chained, it is not always a bad sign. Through all the turmoil that life can bring, having these lines suggest that happiness is not out of reach.

The head line, also known as the wisdom line (considered one of the most important lines in Chinese palmistry), reveals mental and psychological makeup and intellectual development and intuitive abilities. This line begins just above the life line, between the thumb and the index finger and runs across the palm toward the other edge of the palm horizontally. Sometimes the head line begins directly on the life line and extends out from there. This means that you have a strong will — mind over matter. Forked lines are also sometimes called the writer’s fork or the lawyer’s fork.
Listed below are the meanings of the various shapes, depths and lengths of the head line:
Long — Indicates intelligence and a good memory. Represents an individual who thinks things through and does not overreact. They look at many possibilities before taking action.
