A reading with New York City Psychic Medium Betsy can be an exciting and life-changing event. Having the courage to reach out and listen to your soul is an accomplishment that should be celebrated as you would any other important life event.

As a psychic medium, Betsy is responsible for preparing her energy and setting aside time to read your energy. Your responsibility is to be relaxed, open, and honest. Working together in this way is the recipe for a successful and accurate reading!

There are several things you can do to prepare for your reading, but all preparation is centered around this single most important fact:

The best and most accurate readings are readings conducted with open, relaxed clients.

Readings are a 3-way street. They are a combination of the psychic’s energy, the energy of Spirit (aka the Universe or Loved Ones) and your energy. If you rush into a reading, have a million things on your mind, and are not in a quiet, interruption-free environment, the accuracy and detail of the reading will suffer greatly as a result.

A good psychic medium ensures that they are in a calm, relaxed and private place for the reading, and they give their full attention to the client and the reading. A good psychic medium does everything they can to deliver honest, accurate and insightful information from your own soul and from loved ones on the other side. It’s expected that you will do your part too, in order to get the most out of this experience.

1. Set Aside 5 Minutes Before the Reading to Settle Into Yourself.

Take some deep breaths. Clarify why you are getting this reading, focus on who you would like to hear from, and open your heart to the possibility of hearing from all who have a message for you. Be open to the possibility that someone else may come through, and stay open to the message they have to give. Close your eyes and picture your higher self and loved ones sending you peace, courage, and love for your reading. If you’re not sure what to visualize, visualize your soul as a hologram of your body, translucent, radiant and in perfect emotional balance and health. If you have trouble visualizing, just focus on slowing your breath.

2. All Readings Require a Quiet Environment.

You must be in a quiet, interruption-free environment for the duration of the reading. This is essential to your own energy and the accuracy of the reading. The environment should be one that allows you to feel safe and be emotionally vulnerable–safe to uncover deep emotions.

3. Come Prepared with Specific Questions.

These questions can be about you or can be for your loved ones on the other side. For private readings, you can bring up to 7 questions. For group readings, 1-2 questions. I will do my best within the time we have to address as many as possible.

4. Do Some Preparations the Night Before.

The night before the reading, get a good night’s rest and drink plenty of water. Abstain from alcohol or tobacco as much as possible. Mentally set your intentions for a reading in accordance with your Highest Good. On the day of the reading, Betsy will look forward to speaking with you, rested, open, and ready!

5. On The Day Of Your Session:

You will receive an email with a link for Zoom. For private phone readings, I will call you. If we are working on Zoom, please make sure you have a strong internet connection and are sitting in a comfortable well-lit space. Test your camera and audio in advance so that we may get right into the work at hand.  



What Happens In A Psychic Medium Reading

Our Goal

You and I have a collective goal: for you to walk away from your psychic reading with clarity. If you as a client are open, relaxed, and ask the right type of questions (the “How” questions and not the “When” questions), I can tune into information that can shift you towards a positive path of growth.

My job as a psychic is to communicate clearly. Your job is to make sure that you are understanding. If you get confused or wish for more detail, it’s your responsibility to interrupt the reading and ask. There may be a few minutes at the end of the session to explain anything you might find unclear.

Refund Policy

Some clients are surprised to learn that I cannot read for everyone. My readings are an active collaboration that requires us both to be in alignment. If we’re not a good fit for each other, there is simply nothing that can be done during the call to fix the incongruency.

So, to be fair, I have a 15-minute refund policy. If during the first 15 minutes of the reading (after the prayer), either one of us is dissatisfied with the connection, I will end the reading, and you will get a full refund minus processing fees —no questions asked!

We open the session with a check-in to make sure that you are well-prepared. Once we have established this, I’ll start the recorder, and then lead us through a brief guided meditation and prayer to open the space. Next I’ll ask you to state your questions. At this point, the reading begins. 

It’s not uncommon for me to speak throughout 90% of the session. My aim is to answer your questions from a variety of perspectives, covering as much of the whos, whats, whys, wheres, whens and hows as I can. By delivering messages in this way, I’m giving you the key to understanding the issue so you can do something about it. When your questions have been answered, and you have actionable steps to help you make the necessary changes, we close with a prayer.

The Work Begins

Once the reading is over, the work begins. You’ll receive a follow-up email by the end of my day to prepare you for what’s to come. The email will include the audio recording of the session, plus a list of links to any the resources/exercises I had mentioned during the reading.

To promote empowerment and prevent codependency I limit readings to once every six months per individual. In the interim, however, it is expected that you are working on the assigned exercises so that when you come back we can evaluate your progress and move forward.

Coming up with questions to ask a Psychic Medium can be challenging. You must formulate thoughtful, precise, and empowered questions to maximize your reading. Below are four guidelines to help frame and focus your queries.


I will not conduct a reading if you have not prepared appropriate questions.

If you wish to connect to those on the other side (not every reading includes mediumship), each person you wish to connect to counts as one question. I do not need their photos and need no information other than a name or first initial and your question(s) for them.


I do not answer questions about the private lives of others, for the same reason I do not want someone looking into my life without my permission. I do, however, answer questions about your relationships with people in the past, present and future, and how you can improve these relationships.


A Psychic Medium Reading combines my energy, your energy, and the universal energy that connects us. In other words, you will get back what you put into it. So, don’t be vague. Instead, take responsibility and be specific with your question. For example, don’t ask this: “What do you see in career and love?” That question is just too general for a precise answer, revealing that you haven’t taken the time to look inward. Instead, try asking this: “What shifts can I make in my career to bring me the most growth?” or this: “How can I improve my relationship with (first name)?” Asking these sorts of questions allows me to deliver accurate, detailed, and precise answers that empower you to take action. If you come to a reading with vague questions, I will end the session by allowing you to come up with new questions and reschedule.


If you were to see a therapist, telling them a lot about yourself would be helpful. You’d share much of your backstory to paint a detailed picture of who you are and where you’re coming from. A reading with an intuitive, however, is quite different. I want to enter our psychic medium reading with a blank slate as an intuitive. I don’t want you to tell me about yourself. Instead, I will be telling you about yourself. When the reading begins, I will have already tuned into your energy and may have jotted down a few things before we meet. We’ll know we’re a good fit if the information shared I the beginning of the reading resonates with you. So, when asking your questions, skip the backstory and ask the question.


What you; or shouldn’t do is your choice. Asking me what you; do is asking for my opinion, and my opinion does not belong in a reading.

The Universe has no opinion. So, if you are at crossroads, please tell me your options, and I’ll look into the consequences of each action. Then, we’ll explore your options so you can use your free will to make an informed decision.


Asking questions that begin with “when”; and “will”;won’t get you what you want. Turn those “when”; and “wills” into “hows” and “what-can-I-dos.” This change empowers you and allows you to bring what you want into your life. Don’t ask: “When will I meet my soulmate?” or: “Will I ever meet my soulmate?” “How can I attract my ideal mate/soulmate?” or: “What am I doing that is blocking me from manifesting a healthy relationship, and what can I do to overcome it?” Framing your questions with “how” or “what can I do” sets you up to fix unhealthy patterns to attract/manifest the relationships you desire.
