It’s a commonly held belief that we’re all naturally imbued with a certain level of psychic ability. This suggests that we all have the potential to fortify these spiritual tendencies. But it can be frustrating to believe this if you don’t have any idea of what to do about it. Here are some ideas of ways in which you could strengthen and grow your natural gift. By using some of these techniques, you can move closer towards achieving your psychic goals.
Most of us have psychic abilities to a certain degree. The problem is many people simply ignore their intuition, letting their psychic potential go to waste. While natural clairvoyants may need little more than meditation to keep their abilities strong, others require practice to fine-tune their skills. Nevertheless, over time psychic abilities can be developed and even perfected. Here are seven ways to unlock your psychic potential.
Meditate every day
Meditation is a powerful tool for developing your psychic ability. Why? Because meditating raises your energetic vibration. And simply put, spirit energy vibrates at a higher frequency. Too often we rush through the day with a scattered brain that leaves us anxiety-ridden and stressed. Through meditation, you’ll begin to feel more connected to your higher self, your spirit guides and the energy of others. Just 10 to 15 minutes of meditation a day can help you become more spiritually-tuned.
Trust your intuition
How many times have you been plagued by the question, “What should I do?” And how many times have you disregarded that instinctive gut feeling, opting instead for conscious reasoning? The problem is, with conscious reasoning often comes ego-based decision making. And when the ego takes over, instinct falls to the wayside. For example, while instinct may guide you to forgive someone, your ego may guide you towards revenge.
Your intuition tells you important things that your own mind will argue with. Spiritually, intuition might be described as a sixth sense, innate wisdom, inner sense, inner voice or spiritual guide. Yet, for those not spiritually attuned, trusting intuition seems more like magic. And maybe it is a form of natural magic that humans can tap into. To access your intuition, switch off your inner critic. Stop rationalizing everything and just listen – without judgment.
Stop fearing the unknown
Being psychic can be a little frightening, particularly if you question where the answers you receive come from. But those who have a natural psychic ability trust first and foremost that their “knowing” comes from a place deep within themselves. Psychic ability isn’t guided by some unseen force; it’s guided by intuition, confidence in self and the ability to feel another’s emotions, or rather, get into someone’s head. When you’re guided by fear you can’t really get in touch with your spiritual side. So, instead of fearing the unknown, embrace your psychic ability and treat it like a gift.
Get to know your spirit guides
Spirit guides gently guide you throughout life intuitively, helping you stay on track with your soul’s purpose. They’ll hook you up with people, resources, money or even articles like this — wink — that will help you reach your goals. The catch is, they really can’t help us unless we ask them first. Our spirit guides are always at the ready to connect with us, but first, we need to tune into their frequency by dedicating time during meditation.
Simply ask your guides for a sign. Don’t justify what transpires, just go with it. When I asked my spirit guides for a sign, soon after, I found a feather lying outside my door. Create a sacred space to connect with your spirit guides daily. And when you have a question or need some help with a project, just ask. But, be clear on what you would like them to guide you with, and then trust that they’ll get the job done.
Practice feeling the energy of objects to develop your psychic’s abilities. Psychometry is the ability to “read” the energy or history of an object simply by touching it. It’s a great way to develop your psychic abilities. Here’s how you can practice psychometry. Deciphering energies contained within an object is an early stepping stone in your psychic journey. It’s a fairly simple idea, but honing in on your abilities in this area can be tricky at first.
Psychometry is all about sensing the vibrations emanating from an object. To develop this skill, start by taking an object with an abundance of emotional meaning (it’s easiest with metal objects), holding it, closing your eyes and panning for psychic information. This can be a very rewarding psychic method, especially if you take it one step further and go on a spiritual adventure by visiting a historical site or antique shop. Immersing yourself in such a psychically rich environment can be demanding or difficult, but it also has the potential to engage your abilities in a way that will ultimately strengthen them.
This is a great starting point, as can diversify what you take from an object or a space in line with your aims for psychic development; you could try for visions, sounds, memories, emotions, names; the possibilities are endless.
- Choose a quiet area in your home, free from distractions. Sit in a relaxed position and close your eyes.
- Rest your hands on your lap with your palms facing up. With your eyes closed, ask someone to silently place an object in your hands. The object should be unknown to you and something the person has had in his possession for a long time.
- Allow images and feelings to come into your mind, and then say whatever you see, hear, feel or sense while you hold the object.
- Don’t judge. The impressions may seem strange and even meaningless to you, but they might be of significance to the owner of the object.
- The more you practice, the better you’ll get.
Here’s another easy way to develop your psychic abilities. Close your eyes and breathe in deeply. Make sure you’re comfortable and your feet are firmly planted on the floor. After a few deep breaths, think about the next day. In your mind imagine yourself there. Now, write three predictions down on paper for that day. Check back the next day for accuracy.
Read other people’s thoughts
You can strengthen your telepathy skills by attempting to read other’s thoughts. You can also communicate your thoughts to others — silently. Begin by simply guessing what your friends or family are thinking whenever possible. Additionally, ask a friend to draw pictures or select random playing cards. Then, try to figure out what your friend has drawn, or which card they have chosen. Keep practicing daily. Telepathy takes concentration and may take years to develop. But with time and practice, you will become more accurate.
Practice, practice, practice!
For this practice, all you need is a photograph and your mind. Sit down with an image and focus. Relate to those depicted, relate to the photographer, consider the time and place. Mine all the information you can; senses, context, stories. The ephemeral qualities of photographs, their nature as frozen time, as senses captured, render them a source saturated with psychic potential. By harnessing the photograph and its unique characteristics, you can grow your proficiency operating in the psychic realm.
Miracles don’t happen overnight. Unlocking your psychic ability will happen, but you may need to practice daily to get there. If you’re experiencing little to no success then go back to the beginning and follow the advice given. Believe in yourself and be grateful for everything you achieved. Before you know it, your vibration will shift and you will be more psychic.
