How to Read Minds


How many times have you heard someone tell you to just say something because they can’t read your mind?

It turns out that this is only half true. The person telling you this may not be aware, but they certainly are capable of reading your mind. They just do it in a more subtle manner than they perceive.

And the reality is that most people can learn to read minds with training, time, focus, and a certain set of skills. This is not something only psychics are able to do.

Although psychics do have the proper know-how, training, and “gift of reading” it is certainly something that can learned to an extent.

Before I show you how all people can learn to read minds, it’s important to know some background information on mind reading.

Once you understand the science and the psychology behind mind reading, you will see that it is an achievable endeavour for anyone with the determination to learn. And there are also some tricks you can use to give the illusion that you are reading minds.

Those tricks become much more useful when you know the truth behind mind reading.

Natural Mind Readers

The reason why anyone can learn to read minds is because we do it already.

Although our assumptions are often wrong, it’s not because the process of mind reading fails. We can mirror the thoughts and feelings of people we interact with.

But we often focus our reaction on what we think they will do rather than what they are telling us they will do. We often see the facial expressions and body language of someone and correctly guess that they are depressed, sick, happy, angry, or content.

But what happens when someone has a good poker face? Can we still read minds without these visual clues to guide us?

You bet.

Required Skills

The truth is that is doesn’t take that many skills to read minds. All you need is the drive to learn and the willingness to lean on your intuition when it tells you what someone is probably thinking or feeling at the moment.

You’ll obviously need some practice before your abilities come naturally to you. But you don’t need to buy a crystal ball, a special deck of cards, or a strange outfit to read the minds of others.

You must be able to clear your mind of all distractions before you attempt to read someone’s mind. For some people this will be the skill that takes the most time to develop.

Perhaps you could take some yoga classes. Not only will they help you focus your mind and your energy, but they will also give you some quality flexibility and exercise.

Tips for Beginners

If you want to learn to read minds, you can follow some simple tips to get you started. These tips were developed by world-renowned psychic Kiran Behara.

Behara’s clients include some of the richest and most famous faces in entertainment and show business. You should start by practicing these tips on your family and friends.

You should notice quick results, but it will definitely take some time and practice to read the minds of total strangers.

So here we go…

1. Open up Your Spirit

In addition to clearing your mind of all thoughts and stresses, you must open up your energy to the people and possibilities around you. Don’t think about anything.

You just want to be present in the moment. Your mind and soul should soak up the energy given off by the people and things around you. Yoga is great at teaching us how to do this. But you can learn it on your own at home in the quietness of your room.

Just make sure people will leave you alone while you begin to focus your thoughts and energy.

2. Seeing and Not Seeing

free your thoughtsTake a few moments to truly see the person sitting near you. Make a mental snapshot of their facial structure, their hair, their eyes, their posture, their body language, and other details.

But you also must see everything else around that person.

You have to have a mental column that separates traits of the person and the other things that don’t belong to that person. Separate the person from the chair they are sitting in or the wall behind them. All of these things must be visualized in a specific way so that you can feel all the energy being produced around you.

3. Focus on the Person

Now you want to return your focus to that person’s face. Look them directly in the eyes for about 15 seconds. Don’t stare too long or you might interrupt the energy by making the person feel uncomfortable. After 15 seconds pass, you will want to look away.

Make a mental picture of their face and their eyes. What does their energy feel like? Sit in silence now as you let the thoughts and feelings of that person fill your mind and your soul. You have now truly started the process of mind reading.

4. Begin a Conversation

This is where you will uncover the thoughts and feelings of the person. You can choose any topic you like for conversation. Ask about their work or their home life. The thoughts that come rushing into your own mind may be exactly the same thoughts passing through the mind of the other person. You could immediately tell the person what you believe they are thinking. If you have a good memory, you can store these thoughts for later to sum up your entire impression of their thoughts in these sessions.

no fearsThe key is to welcome any thoughts that enter your mind at this point. Even if those thoughts are dark and troublesome, you want to give the person an accurate reading of their thoughts. In order to do that, you must keep your mind open to every possibility.

Maybe you didn’t have any clue before that your brother is depressed, and this revelation hurts you. But it’s best for your brother to know that you’re now aware of his struggles. And now you might be able to help him. The ability to read minds will give you a lot of power, but it’s a wonderful power if you use it wisely.

Other Tips

There are other tips you can utilize to augment these tips. Once you increase your abilities to focus on the thoughts and feelings of others, you can utilize more tips to give you a clear picture of what goes on in the minds of other people.

These tips will increase your chances of success and blow the minds of your friends, family, and strangers you meet on the streets.

1. Emotional Intelligence

If you know the person you’re talking to, you can ask if they are feeling the same emotions you’re feeling. You’ll need to be patient with this. Many people aren’t very good at labeling their emotions. They may feel angry when they’re really just stressed out.

They could feel nervous when they’re just ready to move on to something else. If the person you talk to agrees with the emotions you sense, ask them if they can figure out any reasons why they might be feeling this way.

Finally, you can begin to offer suggestions on what they should do next to intensify or decrease these feelings. They will be amazed at your foresight and recognition.

This might sound more like psychiatry than psychic mind reading, but it’s one of the key ways to develop your natural skills.

2. Develop Keen Listening Skills

What do all great communicators have in common? They must be good listeners.

aware of your surroundingsWhen someone talks, be completely in the moment with them. Don’t listen for the sake of being able to respond. Listen to the other person so that you are able to process and understand everything they are saying. But you must also listen to what they’re not saying as well. If someone isn’t looking forward to the rest of their day, there must be a reason for that. Careful listening will help you uncover those reasons and make them known to the person. In order to succeed, you’ll need to learn to listen more than you talk sometimes. Listening is how you learn about people and their emotions.

3. Don’t Ignore Emotions

The reason people lack empathy today is because they choose to. We are told day in and day out to ignore our feelings so that we can get our work done and put on a strong face for the world.

The longer we ignore our feelings, the quicker they go away. Instead of thinking about the new email from the boss or what you’ll have for dinner later, think about how you feel. According to professional psychics, the more you can respond to your own feelings, the more you will be able to read and respond to the feelings and thoughts of other people in your life.


Reading minds is something everyone can do, and is not just something for professional mentalists and psychic readers. You might not experience much success at first, but you can achieve great progress with practice. Don’t ever use your new abilities to gain an advantage over someone else.

If you can read their emotions extremely well, you might be able to use that to get your way. Use your abilities to help people. Mind readers can be great friends and support systems for people who just need to vent.
