How To Develop Your Own Psychic Abilities
Everyone has innate psychic abilities. There are some
who are born with a more developed gift than others,
but everyone has potential.
- Prepare Yourself
- Physical Tools
There are three basic modes of psychic receptivity:
The majority of people will find that their psychic
abilities lie primarily in one of these areas. Working
within the area in which your natural abilities lie
makes the process of strengthening those abilities
Clairsentience: Being aware of facts or situations
that you have no concrete way of knowing by
experiencing them emotionally. In other words, a
clairsentient can feel the emotions of others, can feel
the presence of spiritual entities and feel that a
situation will turn out a certain way. This happens to
be the mode I work most from.
Clairaudience: This is the ability to hear sounds
(music, voices, names) from other realms. Joan of Arc
is a famous example of a clairaudient.
Clairvoyance: A clairvoyant experiences psychic awareness in the
form of visual images. Sometimes these images are of
actual scenes, sometimes they are symbols.
Clairvoyants can sometimes see spiritual entities. The
child in the movie
"The Sixth Sense,"
was an extremely powerful clairvoyant.
If you are intuitive and empathic, your primary mode
will likely be clairsentience. If you are a very
visual person, chances are your primary mode will be
clairvoyance. Experiment and see which works best for
you. Practice! These are not skill you can master with
a minimum of effort. It is like exercising a muscle;
You have to work it to make it strong.
The state of mind you should be in for divination is
close to a meditative state. Your mind and body should
be relaxed. Sit comfortably and breathe deeply. Slowly
let your mind open.
Having a divinatory tool to work with is an excellent
idea because it gives you something tangible to
interpret. It stimulates your intuition and
unconscious mind by serving as a screen for them to
project upon. Some useful divinatory tools are The I
Ching, a form of stichomancy (the practice of seeking
insight into the world by reading a random passage in
a book), Runes (a tool that dates from at least 300 AD
when they were used by the Goths) and
is the use of a crystal or crystal globe or, more economically,
a bowl of water with a few drops of ink (not India ink so in
case you spill it, it won't be a disaster).
In order to scry, you should sit comfortably,
preferably inside a cast circle, in a darkened but
candlelit room. Then, without straining, gaze at the
surface of your scrying tool. You may be able to
discern a blue light emanating from it. Out loud, say
the question you want information about. Continue to
gaze at the scrying tool. At a certain point, you will
notice its surface has become hazy. Then it will come
sharply back into focus. This is the point at which
the vision may open. If it doesn't, don't be
impatient. It may take lots of practice before you
have a breakthrough.
The vision may be symbols or scenes. When you are a
beginner, they may not be easily discernible. Resist
the temptation to shift your line of vision in an
attempt to try to make them out. Keep your eyes on the
scrying tool. Perhaps the images you see won't make
much sense to you, but make sure you write them down
in your notebook along with the question you asked so
you can assess their meaning from the vantage point of
a later date.
a friend give you a question on which to meditate. Or ask a
question yourself. For learning purposes it should be a question
you do not know the answer to but will be able to verify later.
Get a pen and a piece of blank paper. Relax. Breathe deeply
and slowly. Find your centre. Ask your spirit guardian for assistance
in guiding your hand. Let your mind drift. Hold the pen lightly
in your hand. Focus on the question and on the charge of energy
that is building up in your hand. At a certain point, the pen
may begin to move, seemingly of its own accord. Don't let the
excitement you feel at what is happening disrupt the delicate
connection between your everyday consciousness and your deep
mind. This last point is probably the most difficult instruction
to follow, particularly when you are just starting out.
Your first few efforts will likely result in a
collection of squiggles and chicken scratches. Again,
don't be disheartened. With practice you will be able
to write legible words. Save even your most illegible
efforts in a binder or notebook so that you can keep
track of your progress.
Brief note of warning: Keep your perspective. Don't
allow your psychic abilities to dominate your life. In
order to be a balanced person, you have to listen to
all of your senses (including your common sense), not
just your sixth sense. So develop your psychic
abilities but find a balance between them and your other abilities. Don't overindulge.
