If someone told you had a spiritual gift, and you feel that you do. The best thing for you to do is do research and start doing or practicing readings with friends. Many advisors and spiritual practioners use things like the tarot, runes, some even use a pendulum. You will have to go with what feels comfortable with your hands. Normally your spiritual guide will help make that decision for you without you being aware. It will just feel normal. Some people however, choose not too use tools. They would rather just give you readings from them being empathic or from their spirit guide. I would suggest that you do alot of reading on the internet about the different types of readings and play around with a couple of choices to see which one fits better for you. I hope this helps those of you out there who maybe lost about where to start in the Metaphysical Arts. You will know it is for you because it will just feel right and people will start coming to you for readings and advice. Feel free to set up a private appointment with me and I can help guide you in which way too go(sorry I cannot give free advice in detail regarding this matter) you won't regret it and you will find it beneficial too start your journey! Think of it as a small investment for your future. Love and light!
