You can be a very considerate person, veryquick to provide for others, but there are times, if youare honest, when you recognize a selfish streak in your-self. I would say that on the whole you can be ratherquiet, self-effacing type, but when the circumstancesare right, you can be quite the life of the party if themood strikes you.
Sometimes you are too honest about your feel-ings and you reveal too much of yourself. You are goodat thinking things through and you like to see proofbefore you change your mind about anything. Whenyou find yourself in a new situation you are very cautiousuntil you find out what’s going on, and then you beginto act with confidence.
What I get here is that you are someone whocan generally be trusted. Not a saint, not perfect, butlet’s just say that when it really matters this is someonewho does understand the importance of being trust-worthy. You know how to be a good friend.
You are able to discipline yourself so thatyou seem in control to others, but actually yousometimes feel somewhat insecure. You wish youcould be a little more popular and at ease in yourinterpersonal relationships than you are now.
You are wise in the ways of the world, awisdom gained through hard experience ratherthan book learning.
start with the “Barnum”reading that offerssomething for everyone:
Project a sympathetic personality.Put your client in a receptive,cooperative mood by Explaining that a reading is a team effort.
Use a soft voice, a calm demeanor, andsympathetic and non-confrontational bodylanguage: a pleasant smile, constant eye contact,with head tilted to one side while listening. Facethe subject with legs together (not crossed)and arms unfolded. Call yourself a “PsychicIntuitor.” Explain that your “clients” come tosee you about various things that might be weigh-ing heavy on their hearts (the heart being the pre-ferred organ of New Age spirituality), and that as anintuitor it is your job to use your special gift ofintuition. Explain that everyone has this gift, butthat you have improved yours through practice. Torationalize your soon to come misses, come rightout and say that psychics cannot predict the futureperfectly: “While it would be wonderful if I was ahundred percent accurate, no one is perfect.Even Michael Jordon missed lots of shots!”
