What is Psychometry?

March 18, 2018

Psychometry, also known as token-object reading, or psychoscopy, is a form of extra-sensory perception characterized by the psychic ability to make relevant associations from an object of unknown history by making physical contact with that object. Supporters assert that an object may have an energy field that transfers knowledge regarding that object's history.


I recently had an interesting experience in using psychometry in a psychic reading. It is not my preferred mode of reading but I can (when the stars align) use it to "focus-in" on the energy of the deceased person I'm trying to contact. In this case the woman who had owned the object had passed tragically. I did not know this as I held the object. At first I felt a wave of love and support surround me so I knew this person was deeply loved and missed and they were a source of profound love and support to others. Then my body began to ache and my bones hurt as if they'd been crushed. Immediately, I knew she had experienced body trauma so we were likely looking at a violent accident that caused this level of pain and trauma. The sitter confirmed that the woman had died in a terrible car accident. I then saw a sign for a specific highway and the woman showed me cars smashed and people dying on the roadside meaning she wasn't the only person to have an accident at this site. The sitter confirmed  the site of the accident and agreed that many accidents happen there. At this point I'm feeling clear that I have the right person and I can now just let her thoughts, pictures or words fill my mind. This is my favorite part.

I see a flash of a beautiful lake on a sunny day and people enjoying each other, eating, laughing. She is good at listening and would have been a good teacher or counselor. I see two young women sharing stories about their children and making promises to travel together or visit a place on their list...possibly France. Don't know because I've never been. I see the woman holding her friend's baby and feeding her and loving her so much I want to cry. Then she shows me her own baby and there is a light around her so I know her mom is still with her in spirit. She hugs her and pulls her close and shows me the word, worries, and I know immediately that the daughter is worried in life right now and that her mom is worried that she may make decisions that will hurt her. She is proud that her daughter is such a hard worker and tries so hard to be a good mom. She shows me a bridge and a car steering wheel. I'm not sure why she is showing me this but its all coming so fast I can't rest on it. She makes me laugh so I know she has a good sense of humor and tried to make the most of whatever she was given. She was creative and could make things. she showed me her hands putting things together like crafts. She has an eye for beauty and likes the color blue. She cares deeply for family which includes her closest friends and she shows me the word family when I think of them. I start to cry because I miss her deeply but I know this isn't my emotion. It is the sitter's.

Before I realize it, the images slow to a stop. I look at my watch and I'm surprised the hour has passed. I feel a fading energy and a reminder to tell her daughter she came through. On the drive home, I wonder what objects I have in my possession right now that will hold an energy strong enough so my people will reach out to me after I'm gone.
