What Is Psychometry?

Psychometry is a way that you can read the energy of objects around you. When you touch the object or hold it, you can get information about it such as images or visions. You will be able to smell it, see it, heart it, and feel it. You will be able to know things about where the object has been and who had it.

This is also called token object reading. Some people can say that you can be near the object in order to know where it came from but if you are new, you need to practice holding the object before you try.

How Does it Work?

Psychometry is not something that is physical, but this is something that is energy. Everything and every person are made up of energy and the energy lives an impact on people. When you come in contact with certain things, the energy of that object can imprint on you.

The vibrations of the object will come upon you and that object will enter your energy field. This will be your aura and the energy of the object will be there when you want to do a reading.

The more energy that an object has, the more the reading will make sense and the more information you will get.
