The Anatomy of a Reading – How to Conclude a Reading

Concluding a reading can sometimes be difficult.

You will find that people sometimes:

1. Do not want to let go and will keep asking questions or try to get more information;

2. Feel sad or even angry that a specific person did not come through;

3. Get upset at the information that came through; and

4. Want you to provide therapy.

Learning to generously give of yourself and then kindly and professionally demand that your boundaries are respected is a skill that you want to develop. For example, it’s important to be sure to inform clients about the duration of a reading and how and when the reading will end.

Further, be sure to conclude a reading with a thank you, acknowledging your Spirit Guides (as well as the client’s Spirit Guides) for coming through. You also want to give the client a minute or two to sit, think, meditate or talk to you about what they’ve experienced.

In this way, you assist them in processing information, especially information that they were unclear about or couldn’t confirm during the reading. You might also give them a brief process for connecting again on their own, away from the session with you.

Be sure to summarize the session and remind them of any signals or symbols the spirit gave them to let them know they are present.


1. As you go through your day make mental notes of how well you set and keep boundaries in your relationships. Look especially for places in your relationships where you may be allowing others to cross your personal boundaries of time, space, respect or otherwise.

Make note of your impressions and think about ways you can begin to set and maintain clear boundaries. Be mindful that you can set boundaries with care, grace and love. Setting boundaries is an act of self love remember. In addition, you’re teaching others to do the same. Practicing this will assist you when you’re facing situations within a reading where you may need to be firm.

2. Make a brief outline of the conclusion points most important to you and practice this with a friend or client in a reading or coaching-like setting.

3. If faced with one through four listed, think about how you would handle the situation. Just giving thought to the situation will help you navigate it as it arrives.
