Hello all. Back in the fall I issued a Skeptic Challenge, offering to read people in thread without any background information save what was listed on the screen. From the response here, the thread was quite popular. However, I did experience a kind of of sensory "overload" during this process. I read about thirty people within a one week period, which is more than I have ever done before and the most I've ever done over the Internet. I tried something new and we laughed along the way. I considered it a wonderful experience.

To avoid those side effects. I propose this:

I am looking for three people who wish to be read. I will read and post what I "see" this evening in thread unless I feel it is too personal. In that case, I will PM the person. Once these three are read, then I will determine if I am able to do more.

Last go round I said that if I was no good, then the skeptics here could change my avatar to whatever they saw fit. I will stand by that same offer. I am not here stating that I am never wrong or that I am infallible. I am merely trying to expand my own consciousness and testing the boundaries. Blessings to all of you.

Let us begin!

I'm skeptical. But I used to be an extremely prominant skeptic on the board, and i've now come to the conclusion my mind was more closed because of this, and have since opened it a little. There are things happening in this world that many don't understand, so who knows, i'm ready to be proven wrong.

I do not know offhand how one "gets started" if you've never had some sort of inclination towards sensing things. But Tarot or runes are good to start off getting oneself familiar with your subconscious mind and the images it gravitates towards. But in order to read others, you must also be able to read/sense yourself and know the difference between your own feelings/impulses and other people's. Before attempting to read anyone through any of these methods, you must first do some sort of protection around yourself, depending on which faith or any that you have. Call on your guardian angels, the universe, God, Christ and any other imagery that makes you feel protected. For the atheist one can image oneself surrounded by a field of white or blue light, for example, that blocks out negativity. Only begin a reading when you feel calm and at ease. If you are not centered, do not read for yourself or for others. And lastly, remember to have a sense of humor. The universe certainly does; there isn't a human alive that hasn't been wrong or fallible. Believing one to be immune to this or some sort of self-proclaimed master of psychic arts invites the inevitable downfall. Humility and laughter embellish the path.

Hope that helps.
