Psychometry, also called “token object reading,” is the ability to touch an object and gain some kind of extrasensory impression from it. These impressions might be visions, names or even just swirls of colors and sounds.
Who Are Psychometrists?
You’re probably most familiar with psychometrists because of their prevalence on TV. Have you ever seen a psychic character helping the police or searching for a missing girl by touching her personal effects? These scenes tend to be very dramatic, with the psychometrists gasping at their visions and yelling things like, “She’s near the river!” Psychometry in real life is much more subtle.
How Does It Work?
There are many, many theories about where psychometry comes from and why only certain people can tap into its power. Most paranormal experts agree that it must have something to do with the auras or atoms of the universe. There are still so many things we don’t know about matter, energy and light, so who’s to say that psychometry isn’t an entirely natural phenomenon that we simply can’t explain with our current level of science?
What Can You Learn From A Psychometrist?
If you’re thinking of getting a reading from a psychometrist, there are a few things you should know first.
Psychometrists can not:
See your future
- Read your mind
- Read other people’s minds through their belongings
- Gain omniscient knowledge
- Tell you where you lost your car keys
Psychometrists can, on the other hand, help you find missing things that are important to you. For example, if a beloved pet has disappeared, psychometrists might be able to read something from the collar they left behind.
Psychometrists can also help you answer pointed, specific questions, though the readings they receive might be hazy. If you think your spouse is cheating on you, you might take their jacket or watch to a psychometrist to see if they receive any impressions of dishonesty, lust or infidelity.
Certain psychometrists might also have the power to speak to the dead. If you give them a close treasure of the deceased, they might be able to reach “beyond the void” and establish a channel of communication via the item that ties them to the earth.
Where Do You Find A Psychometrist?
Most psychometrists only advertise their services on a word-of-mouth basis, so you’ll need to dive into your local psychic community to find them. If you already know a palm-reader or clairvoyant, you can ask them if they know any psychometrists or even if they’ve dabbled in the art of psychometry themselves.
The most important thing about getting a psychometric reading is understanding that it won’t immediately solve your problems. Just like any psychic knowledge, it should be used carefully to help you figure things out in your life and make better decisions about the future.
Psychometry is a tool. Whether you’re looking for dogs, lies or just a fun reading with a psychic, you should always treat it as such.
