How Do Psychics Connect Long Distance?

Ever wondered how a psychic connects with you over a long distance? Or maybe you have thought about how it is possible for psychics to do remote readings via a phone call or video chat?

I have been asked these kind of questions many times, because for many years I have been doing psychic readings for clients all over the world. First of all, let me debunk the myth that psychics actually connect with you directly via a phone line or electrical wires, or computer hardware for that matter! This is simply not the case. Psychics do not make a connection with you on this earthly plane or realm, or what we know as this reality of space and time. Instead, the connection is made in the spiritual realm. All metaphysical or psychic information comes from one fundamental source, which is the Universal Source of everything that is, was and will be.

This Source of Higher Consciousness has many names originating from various wisdom traditions, belief systems and scientific theories. I mostly refer to it as Source Energy or the Universe, but it is also known as the Unified Field of Consciousness, the Fifth Element, the Superstring Field, Superconsciousness, the Matrix, the Akasha or Akashic Record, the Aether, the Astral Plane, the Spirit Realm, Collective Unconscious, the Book of Life, Great Spirit or God.

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition ~ Rod Sterling

There are many planes or dimensions that we cannot see or experience via our normal five human senses. It is believed that apart from the Astral Plane, there is also the Etheric plane, the Soul Plane, and so on. String theory, in the science of Quantum Physics, predicts the possibility of the existence of as many as eleven other dimensions, instead of the known three spatial dimensions on earth, and the fourth dimension of time.

Gifted psychics and clairvoyant mediums have a sixth sense or Extra Sensory Perception (ESP), which enables them to access this alternate spiritual plane or realm - the universal place or space where we are all connected. On that plane we "read energy vibrations" or receive messages from spirit. ​The simplest way to understand this Higher Spiritual Plane that we work on, is to imagine it as a ’spiritual world wide web’ or a ‘cosmic internet’ to which we are all connected. Everything and everyone in the Universe is connected, because everything is made of pure energy.

Now, during a long distance psychic reading, when I want to connect with you as client on the other side of the world, all I need to do is link my energy with yours, almost like connecting two ‘psychic computers’ over this ‘spiritual internet’.

This is the reason why psychics will often ask for your name, or your birthdate, or even a recent picture or an object that belonged to a person who crossed over. Remote viewers use a similar technique by assigning random numbers to a target to serve as the reference point for them to focus on.

We basically need your ‘spiritual address’ – some or other simple reference or ‘plug in point’ to make that initial connection with you. It is almost like coordinates for a Global Positioning System (GPS) device in your car, or an IP address for a website. Every living being past, present and future has a "spiritual address" or "soul coordinates" embedded in the Universal Field or Matrix. This is what is commonly known as your "energy field" or your aura.

This matrix or field is not something that is “out there” but rather it’s the very stuff that is holding us together. The universe can be viewed as a massive computer, with our consciousness as the operating system and our emotions/feelings as the software. ~ Gregg Braden

In other words, psychics raise their consciousness or "energy vibration" during a reading in order to consciously connect with your energetic address or spiritual coordinates. Once this basic connection is made, there is a free flow of energy or ’spiritual data’, which the psychic can now tap into and interpret for you. Psychic and mediums use their extra-sensory abilities to "download" and "translate" information from the Source Field. We receive and process metaphysical information using different pathways, including clairsentience (feeling or touch), clairvoyance (seeing) and clairaudience (hearing or listening). In more rare cases some also use their gifts of clairgustance (tasting) and clairolfaction (smelling).

Interestingly, this process of connecting to a person's energy field is also the main difference between the work of psychics in comparison to mediums. Psychics connect to the spiritual address or soul coordinates of a living person, while mediums connect with the spiritual address or soul coordinates of a deceased loved ones or other individuals who have passed from this life and transitioned into what is known as the "afterlife" or the "other side." Trance mediums or channels connect to a variety of discarnate spirit beings or non-physical entities for diverse purposes. © 2010 Anthon St. Maarten
