A psychic reading is a specific attempt to discern information through the use of heightened perceptive abilities; or natural extensions of the basic human senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and instinct.
These natural extensions are claimed to be clairvoyance (vision), clairsentience (feeling), claircognisance (factual knowing) and clairaudience (hearing) and the resulting statements made during such an attempt. The term is commonly associated with parapsychology -based consultation given for a fee in such settings as over the phone, in a home, or at psychic fairs.
A distant reading, "traveling clairvoyance", or "remote perception" can be conducted without the reader ever meeting the client.
Psychometry is a form of psychic reading in which the reader claims to obtain details about another through physical contact with their possessions.
Psychometry readers often ask the subject for their favorite and most meaningful objects, such as wedding rings, glasses, car keys, etc., for the reading. The belief is that objects which are in close proximity to a person for extended periods of time hold some of that person's 'energy'.
This method has been used also in attempts to locate missing persons.
