The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Billet Reading

DEFINITIONS

Billet Reading: A technique where questions are written on small pieces of paper, then folded up or sealed in an envelope and given to a psychic who attempts to answer the question with the help of paranormal powers of information from spirit guides. Unfortunately, since the paper is so small, it is easily manipulated by fake psychics. The small piece of paper is known as a “billet.”Donald Michael Kraig
