All of us are born with psychic abilities. Some people naturally have a clearer connection with the ethereal realms while others have to work harder at strengthening this connection. Sadly society hasn’t made it easy. Continued frowning on anything deemed psychic or paranormal has led many people to disbelieve or lose faith in their own unique spiritual gifts. However it’s not too late to tune into and hone your psychic skills. Expanding your psychic potential will give you deeper insight into challenges as well as provide a fresh new perspective on whatever you may be facing.
The first real step is acceptance and belief. Being open to and acknowledging your natural born psychic abilities will play a huge role in making them stronger. This can be a tricky step though. If you have regularly ignored gut feelings then ‘hearing’ your inner guide may be a struggle at first. Perhaps family and friends haven’t been supportive about your interests in this area and subconsciously you’ve dismissed the reality of psychic phenomena. Over time, this will have had a detrimental affect on your abilities. Look for local groups or Spiritualist churches where you can meet like-minded and supportive people. Start doing research and reading positive books about the subject. As you build up an understanding of psychic abilities, your knowledge and confidence will increase and silence any voice of doubt.
Regular meditation is essential. It is a simple yet incredibly powerful tool. Most professional psychic advisors engage in a daily meditation practice as it calms the mind and brings clarity of thought. Don’t panic just yet! Meditation doesn’t have to involve sitting crossed legged on the floor for 3-hours in total silence. What’s important is being able to relax. Listening to soothing music, staring at a candle flame or even a gentle walk in nature are all effective forms of meditation. The most important thing is being able to quiet your mind so you can connect with your higher self. As you relax you will enter a state of ‘knowingness’ where universal energy flows freely. Messages and insight may come to you in the form of thoughts, feelings or visions. Trust what you receive. The more you meditate the easier it will be to connect with your higher consciousness.
One of the best ways to hone your extrasensory skills is to listen to your intuition. You may feel uneasy around someone or get an inner chill when visiting a particular spot. Perhaps you feel an urge to read a certain book or visit a café on a specific date. None of these feelings may make sense to you but they happen for a reason. Don’t dismiss them. Your intuition is the fastest and most reliable way for your higher self to relay important messages to you. Whether its goose bumps, knots in your stomach, a voice in your head or a strong sense of excitement and anticipation – always trust your gut feelings. The more you listen to your inner voice the louder and clearer it will become.
Psychic tools, such as Tarot Cards, Runes, Crystals and Pendulums are a great way of focusing energy and intention. They help open your mind and expand your vision creating a clear pathway to Spirit and your higher consciousness. It really doesn’t matter what tools you choose to work with as long as you feel comfortable with them. Dreams are an important psychic tool and as you continue your practice you may find they become much more vivid. Keeping a dream journal and making notes of your experiments using different psychic tools is a great way to chart your progress.
Above all have patience. Think of your psychic abilities as a muscle that needs to be warmed up and stretched. If you’ve never been to the gym before you wouldn’t expect to immediately life the heaviest weight. The more you use and trust in your psychic gifts the stronger they will become. By investing time in regular practice you will soon start to see the benefits. Remember you were born with psychic gifts and they are a beautiful and natural part of who you are.
