Reading objects by touch: The psychic has a variety of ways to receive information, Tarot, crystal balls and auras for example. But some are drawn to certain methods that work better for them, so we come to Psychometry. Psychometry is a psychic skill that involves the handling of objects in order to pick up information about that objects history or the events or emotions of people connected with that object.
What is it
It is a combination of normal psychic awareness plus the ability to read the energy patterns that we all leave on the objects around us. But it also acts as an aid to the psychic, helping him / her tune in better to their sitter, Most psychics who use this method tend to prefer metal objects, such as rings, bracelets or other jewellery, this could have a lot to do with the fact that these objects are in contact with the person on a more regular basis and therefore retain more information. But it can be almost anything, other psychics are good with cloth, such as clothes, again these items are in regular contact with the owner. But there are no rules, it’s simply a matter of what works best for the individual, or whatever is available! Psychometry is also the method that a lot of psychics use when working with the police, especially when trying to locate a person. The psychic or medium will be given an object, which belongs to that person or a photograph of them. The handling of an object here helps to create a psychic link to that person
How does it work?
Whenever we handle an object we are laying down information about ourselves on that object. It?s important to remember that more than one person may have handled an object, thus its history may reveal things that are not relevant to the sitter. If, for example an object has been passed on down the family, it will contain information about its previous owners. The psychic can then pick up on the information stored on the object.
The information is picked up by the subconscious mind. The `signatures` on objects are imprinted on the subconscious and then transferred to our conscious thinking.
Strong emotions seem to be stored well on objects; psychics are often able to pick-up on these signatures. The imprints left on objects could relate to any information, a location, a time, a feeling -all seem to be stored.
A medium/psychic may choose to start with Psychometry during a reading, a to help link into the person. This will enable some basic details to be picked up about that person and help gain some trust from them. As the reading develops it may then become a `medium` reading, when spirit communicators come through to give a message.
Try Psychometry for yourself.
You can try Psychometry for yourself by asking a friend for an object, a watch, a ring, cigarette lighter, wallet etc. But something they are in regular contact with can make it easier. Try to find somewhere quiet and peaceful if possible. Place the object in the palm of your hand, and place your other hand on top. Explain to your friend what you are about to try and also ask their permission. Then sit quietly for a few moments and try to relax. I try to explain this step of relaxing as ‘taking a step back from the world?; it’s similar to meditating. After a few moments or so you may find an image pops into your mind, for now just mention this out loud to your friend.
Don’t try to process these images at first, just say what you see. Most people when trying this for the first time may see every-day things, but are surprised how relevant they can be to the owner of the object they are reading. For example you may see or get the feeling of something as simple as a kettle, on mentioning this you might be told that their kettle decided to ‘pack up’ and stop working today. So the point here is to just make sure you say everything you see, you might sense feelings about that person too, so mention them as well. You may find much of what you describe can’t be placed, – don’t expect miracles! Accept you will be wrong, be prepared to keep trying.
The more you try the better you will become; you should start to see better results as your mind becomes used to ‘seeing’ the information. But you can progress, at first you will be pleased to pick up on things correctly, but the next stage is to follow the pictures or feelings. There may a lot more information that you can obtain. For example if you sense a person connected to your friend, you should be able to pursue the image so that more information is revealed. It might be best to start with the YES / No technique.
This involves simply asking questions in your mind concerning what you ‘see’ or feel. Try asking is this person family? Do you get a positive or negative feeling? If you feel a negative response try something like; is this person a work colleague or social friend? Is there a problem here? And so on. In time more information comes to you and you begin to see a bigger picture, how these things connect and how to suggest solutions. Never guess! Never make something up! Your catchword should be RESPONSIBILITY.

Inanimate objects are anything but silent bystanders in the lives of their owners. Like the living beings who own them, they each have stories to tell us if we learn to let them. The waythey communicate with us is through touch, or what is known as the art of psychometry.
Psychometry (pronounced si-COE-meh-tree) is the art of seeing through touch; of being able to accurately gather an intrepret data about other people and events that are psychically transmitted by handling objects and events that were in intimate contact with those things, people or events.
We humans are surrounded at all times by our own electromagnetic energy fields. Objects that come into contact with these fields for extended periods of time – such as happens with jewelry, furniture, or clothing – inevitably have some of that energy imprinted upon them. When this happens, some of the life story of an object’s owner can be “read” when the object is held by someone who has learned this type of psychic communication.
Experiments suggest that our electromagnetic energy fields become stronger during the times when our emotional levels are fluctuating the most. This makes for a stronger imprint on an object, and why the majority of information about someone obtained through using psychometry gets clear images of weddings, deaths, or other moments when the emotions of the objects owner were high.
Because of the emotional imprinting, psychometry has become useful for law enforcement agencies. The idea of psychics in partnership with modern dectectives, once sneered at by orthodox police forces, has proven to be the key to solving many crimes invovling missing persons. In cases where an object belonging to a missing person has been discovered, but not the actual person or their body, psychics skilled at psychometry have been able to take them and allow it to tell where to find the missing person. Using psychics skilled in psychometry is still not commonplace in most law enforcement venues, but occasionally it has proven to be the key to otherwise unsolvable crimes, and we are likely to see more acceptance of psychic assistance over time.
Psychometry is not an easy skill to master, and those who are naturally empathetic seem to learn it more quickly. For example, if you find yourself crying inexplicably at an old battleground or while touring historic homes, or you become moody and tempermental while strolling through antique shops and impulse-buy unusual items claiming them seemed to be “calling out” to you, then you may already possess plenty of natural skill.
The best items to begin experimenting with are peices of jewelry, items that are more likely than others to have spent long periods of time in direct contact with their owners. Many antique stores have a collection of inexpensive costume jewelry with which you can begin. An ideal situation is to work with a partner. Each of you can proivide items owned by your ancestors. In this way you can not only experiemnt with psychometry together, but you can each get some immediate feedback om the accuracy of the information you receive.
You’ll need a quiet time and place where you won’t feel distracted by other people or obligations. Sit still, keeping good posture while still remaining relaxed. Hold the object to be psychometrized in your non-dominant hand. This is usually defined as the hand you do not write with. This is your receptive hand, the one most easily able to receive impressions and energy transfers.
Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Will yourself to relax and be open to the energies imprinted on the object. Don’t try to force the process. Just stay focused on the object and remain relaxed and open.
Impressions may pop into your mind in a variety of ways, so reserve judgement until you’re finished. Some people are sound-oreinted and will hear things. Others are visually oriented and will see scenes played out in their minds, and some pick up on the emotional content and can become very agitated. Still others will get only the most basic sense of what the object is trying to tell them, but once they go to sleep their subconscious will take over and flush out the details. It’s also helpful to write down any mental impressions obtained in your psychometry experiments. What seems like nonsense to you may make perfect sense to the person whose belonging you hold and will be the key to showing you that you’re learning to see through touch.
