From the perspective of accuracy - telephone readings and in-person readings are equal.
In fact, in the teaching of mediumship to students, telephone readings, Skype readings and in-person readings, all fall into the same category:
A Live Reading is a reading where you have the energy of Spirit (the messenger) and the energy of the Person (the message recipient) together, all in one place, all at the same time.
A live reading is an active, three-way link between yourself, the medium and those in Spirit. The other type of reading is a distance reading, where the messenger (Spirit) and the medium deliver the information to the message recipient (you) after their connection is complete, these are generally used for email or written messages to be delivered at another date, such as a book or publication.
A Live Reading is a live reading so long as all three parties are meeting at the same place, at the same time - even if that place is a non-physical virtual place - such as a telephone or webcall. It doesn’t matter if a Live Reading takes place in the same room, or thousands of miles away, because it is not the physical bodies of two people that are connecting in a reading - it is the mind, hearts and Spirits of two people who are connecting in a reading.
And this, can happen anywhere.
You, can be anywhere. As long as your own Spirit, your Soul, is there to listen - the message gets through - and that’s the most important part - that you receive the messages you need to receive from Spirit.
Your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels do not currently have a physical body on this Earth, thus, there is little that binds them from coming to your medium, to your reading, regardless of where they or you are. Without a physical body, they are not subject to the same limitations you may have to getting to a medium - such as having one in your local area, in the case of an in-person reading, or having access to a telephone or computer, in the case of a telephone reading.
They do not have to worry about the cost of travel. Or the finances of a reading. Or rush hour traffic, delays and accidents along the way - all things that could prevent you from meeting with a medium for an in-person reading. In fact, all they need to know is with whom they are meeting with and when to be there.
That’s right - as soon as your reading is set up - your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels are free to travel to get to your reading, because they know where they are going and when to be there. As long as they know who they are going to, your Loved Ones, Guides and Angels can travel to your medium - regardless of distance. In fact, I like to think they sort of, float on over here.
After that, the difference between a telephone reading and an in-person is simply a matter of personal preference.
Many Mediums Prefer Telephone Readings
While in-person readings are truly a magical experience, many psychic mediums really enjoy telephone readings. Without a physical person directly in front of them, it is often easier to connect, stay focused and streamline the information out from those in Spirit who are present. Many psychic mediums can get a clearer connection with only Spirit in their physical space (the messenger) and you, the message recipient, in another physical space. Some people are simply better at concentrating when they are physically alone - and it’s often easier!
Which again, doesn't mean more or less accurate. It means that for the medium, it may be easier to concentrate, which wouldn't generally affect to the type of information coming through (equal in accuracy), but it could affect the quantity, speed and flow at which it does come in - meaning, in some cases, you could actually receive more information.
In fact, having you non-present in a physical space in the reading, can actually help reduce accidental biasing of your message, too - if that is something that concerns you. In a telephone reading, since you are not present in physical form, the psychic medium cannot see anything about who you are or what you are about, thus, they couldn’t cold ‘read’ you, or infer information from your appearance that could bias a clear message from Spirit.
Telephone readings often allows the psychic medium to be more focused on receiving your messages from Spirit and can reduce potential bias from getting into your messages, by accidentally picking up on clues from your physical appearance or being.
You Can Connect in the Comfort of Your Own Home
Many readings are emotional. When connecting with Spirit, sensitive feelings, memories and thoughts come forward, and while healing, readings can be vulnerable experiences. Sometimes being vulnerable simply feels better in the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas (if you want) and curled up on the couch. Connecting at home, while on the telephone, can actually help you relax, listen and focus on the message more deeply
Also, with a telephone reading, you can avoid any unforeseen potential appointment delays on the way there, and won't have have to worry about being late to your session due to travel or traffic, or have to deal with combating the feeling of focus from being uncomfortable in a new and unfamiliar place.
You May Be More 'Free' to Listen and Absorb Your Appointment
Just like the reverse example above, without a psychic medium who you may have never met before, sitting right in front of you, in your close personal space - for some, it is easier to listen, absorb and take in the information, when you are simply listening to it rather than being in the presence of another person.
Without a physical person in front of you and connecting with Spirit over the telephone at the comfort of your location - you find yourself in a more relaxed, centered and calming space than anywhere else on Earth. And that’s the most important part.
To get the most out of your reading, the best thing you can do is to be focused, ready to listen and calm. When you are in a calm, centered and focused frame of mind - only then, can you truly receive anything which is being given to you - including communications from those you love and want to hear from, in Spirit.
The real difference in telephone readings and in person readings is not accuracy - Spirit will still speak to us whether or not you are at a reading in physical body - but rather, it is the answer to this question:
What will put you in the best frame of mind when receiving the message?
Anything you can do to maximize your ability to relax, center and calm down for your appointment - will improve your reading and your ability to focus on the messages that are coming through.
If you think you’ll be most comfortable connecting with a Loved One while at home, cozied up on the couch - book a telephone reading. If you think, you’ll be most comfortable, directly across from medium’s table - book an in-person reading. Or, try both and see which one works best for you.
When you are selecting your reading, it’s important to keep in mind the connection with Spirit is a sacred one. It’s a three way link. While we as mediums can open the channel, whether it is with you in front of us or in an over the phone conversation - it’s still a conversation - and whenever and however you can be to be most comfortable for that conversation - that is the best option.
The accuracy of your reading won’t change either way.
With love and see you and Spirit soon,
