I do get answers to questions that other people might ask, but the questions have to be kind of specific and if there is gossip then I'll get some background intel on what's really going on. It's done is such a way that it is like regular conversation, but I know when something is right, or I'll know the questions to ask, to get to the subject that needs to be discussed. The people I talk to don't know what I'm doing. It's just natural conversation usually. I might make a suggestion about something that they need to hear.
By the same token, if I want a 'reading' sometimes I will talk to someone. Just anybody will do, because I am guided, and they are guided so information will be exchanged and sometimes there are clues. I was taught to listen to the words of others, doesn't mean I have to agree with them or obey them but to consider the message, or read between the lines. This was one of my early lessons.
