I say this because well when you first start reading and learning from books, they always have these long winded and often complicated rituals laid out. I can’t imagine having to go through a lengthy process just to lay some cards about a question like will I get the job I applied for. I would much sooner just pick up the phone and ask them directly. Seems a better use of time if you ask me.
For me personally, all I do to get ready for a reading is take my deck out of the and give them a light shuffle to wake up the cards a bit. Sometimes when you first start out you do need a little more time to get in the right head space, but over time it will get easier and easier the more often you do it. That’s why I think giving people readings often is a good thing because it not only helps strengthen your psychic muscle, but also trains you to turn the switch on and off more easily.
