How tea leaves — and coffee grounds — can provide psychic answers

There are many tools used by psychics to glean answers. Since everyone has psychic ability, these tools can also help you to tap into your subconscious and find your own answers to life questions that you are grappling with. Psychic answers aren’t found in the tools themselves, but rather they help you to connect to your intuition.

Tea leaves have been used as a tool for conducting psychic readings for years. The art of tea leaf reading, also referred to as tasseography,  is believed to have begun in China. In some cultures, coffee grounds have been substituted for tea leaves and used to provide psychic answers.

So how do you read tea leaves? First of all, you need tea.  Not the tea bags that many are used to using these days. Instead, you need loose tea. If you want to read your tea leaves, make a pot of tea as you normally would, using the loose tea, and pour some into your cup.

Once you’ve poured your cup of tea, many believe that it is important that you drink it. Your personal energy plays a role in the psychic reading that you get. By drinking your tea, you are interacting with it and your energy becomes infused into the cup. While you’re drinking your tea, it’s also a good idea to clear your mind and relax. If there is a certain question that you have, think about that question while you are in this relaxed state.

Psychic readings always are more accurate when you are in the right mind frame for them. If you are anxious or tense, it’s going to be harder for you to connect to your subconscious, and it is going to be more difficult for you to interpret the meanings behind the tea leaves.

Keep drinking until there is only a little bit of tea left  The bottom of your cup should also contain many tea leaves. Swirl the remaining tea inside of glass around three times.

Then turn your cup over onto a saucer so that the remaining tea is poured out. After a couple of seconds — you might first take a couple of deep breaths — turn the cup back over and look at the saucer to see the tea leaves that have spilled out onto the saucer.

At this point, it’s time for you to tune into your intuition and trust what you get. What do the tea leaves look like to you? Do they appear to have taken on a certain shape? Does a specific thought, pattern or action come to mind when you look at them? Some people see scenes and images in their mind’s eye when looking at the tea leaves. Trust that the images and sensations that you get are real and that your intuition is speaking to you.

Those who use coffee grounds to do this process follow the same steps, except they use the coffee grounds to tap into their intuition rather than the tea leaves. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
