As a professional Diviner, I pride myself on giving my clients a great experience. It's a responsibility that I take pretty seriously, but as the old saying goes, "It takes two to tango." The best readings happen when clients also understand their own role in the experience, as well as the realities and limitations that exist for all of us.
Keeping that in mind, here are some things that I think most readers wish their clients understood.
1. Respect our time
Spiritual services are a niche business. For a great many practitioners, spiritual work is often more about helping their community than a way to turn a profit. As such, many readers also need to take on day jobs in order to pay the bills and provide for their families.
Most readers I know are incredibly busy people, and we always appreciate clients who understand that and respect our time. Little things like having your questions prepared, ensuring your tech is working/charged (for online sessions), and most importantly, showing up on time go a long, long way. I love when clients do these things because it lets us get straight to business and lets them get more out of their sessions.
It's also important to remember that while we care deeply about our clients, readers are not on-call 24/7. As I said, many of us have jobs, families, and obligations to take care of outside our spiritual practice. The biggest thing a client can do to show their respect is to be respectful of these simple boundaries.
