Rick's "tips" for a good reading-
Verification and acknowledgment of the information given from Spirit is important! So the medium can proceed with the message(s) that is to be given. Let the medium know when they are correct, be fair. Disagreeing or wanting things done your way makes it difficult for the medium to function effectively and may lead to failure. Be skeptical, but be open and fair as well.
Sometimes the information brought through during the reading doesn't mean anything or you simply don't remember at that moment. Often "things" make more sense at the end of the reading. I call this "spontaneous amnesia", it is not uncommon to draw a blank! Many clients have written me over the years telling me how "It" hit them later such as, on the drive home. Also, the "understanding of the message" may come clearer at a later time – after you have had time to process your experience. Readings can be a bit overwhelming in a positive way!
Someone may show up your not expecting. Rarely, but on occasion that person may not show up or communication is limited.
This is where intent is required. What is the purpose of wanting to communicate with someone? The reasons I have found are countless! My role as a medium is to communicate messages as clearly and effectively as possible. And always surrounded in the Highest, Purest, Holy Light!
Keep an open mind and listen to the information (message) coming through, so you can have a positive reading experience. If your closed off, the reading session most likely will not be as rewarding as it may could have been.
