....all you have to do is listen, watch, and feel. It is very easy to read people and no special psychic abilities are needed all you need is a clear observant mind that is free from judgement. Judgement can taint your perception and easily cause you to misread someone. If you have the true desire to be able to read people you may need to begin by becoming a people watcher. Sit, watch, and don't say a word. Peoples actions speak extremely loud. Body language can easily give away a persons mood and if you look at where you are what they are you can begin to start to put a story together. Of course you can never truly know unless you ask the person or if you knew them fairly well...but the more practice you have the easier it gets. I personally use it as part of my social game when I am out interacting with people I never met. I make it fun and I look them over and start to read them. I ask them a few simple yes or no questions to help my reasoning and then BAM! they are chit chatting away with me about their life. People love to talk about themselves so if you ever want to win brownie points just get people talking. Have you ever watch the tv series Elementary. How do you think he so quickly picks up on what is really happening? He is extremely observant, borderline autism I would say, but he really zeros in on what he sees and begins to piece things together. So let's make this a fun challenge. Start doing some people watching, not stalking, but just casual observing and begin to get a feel for reading people. Then one night when you are sitting around with friends and mingling with people you haven't met yet ask them if you can try reading them. You can make it fun and hold their hands...this will give them the impression your psychic or something...and then start observing their body language. think back on some thing you heard them talking about, consider their age and gender, and try and see if you can tell them things about themselves they haven't made known to a lot of people. If you know anything about astrology you can through that in too. If you know their sign you have a lot of basic traits that can help you zero in on some personal characteristics. Finally feel them out. Is their tone edgy, are they irritated with you and this is not fun for them, hmmm maybe they are cynics....are the smiling ear to ear and when they talk you feel cozy inside...hmmm maybe they are naturally nurturing people...use all your senses and before you know it you'll even amaze yourselves. Think about it this way, psychics are merely sensitives with heightened senses, if you begin to use your senses maybe you are becoming psychic? Maybe the label "psychic" is just a label for fine tuning our senses and getting in touch with all things around us. Maybe the way we look at the label of one who is psychic will begin to change because suddenly we understand everything is easy to understand when we tune into another using all our senses simultaneously. Maybe we are something we never imagined ourselves to really be but have always known we are...maybe you will suddenly....wake up.
