When you think of a psychic do you think of crystal balls and old women draped in scarves claiming to have special gifts passed down from generation to generation? As fun as that sounds, that’s not actually the reality of having psychic powers. Psychic abilities can present themselves in many different forms and find their way to the minds of all different types of people – regular, young, and old, not-draped-in-scarves people. In fact, it is normal for you to ask yourself: do I have psychic abilities? I am here to tell you that everyone has these skills, but it’s like any muscle – it needs exercise and less ego to be in shape. Tapping into these psychic skills helps us expand our everyday experience into something far greater.
Where Do They Come From?
So now you are probably wondering where do our psychic abilities come from? That is a great question! There are many schools of thought. Some believe it is by higher functioning of the human brain that psychic abilities are possible. Others believe that it is by God’s grace that these higher powers are possible. I personally believe a mix of the two. One’s awakening begins with being open and removing EGO (or Edging God Out.)
Letting God and Love into your life unconditionally removes the blocks within the brain that raise your vibration to receive and develop these gifts. It is as if there is an oily or smoky film around these gifts and they need to be cleansed in order for them to work at their best. One great way to start is meditation and chakra cleaning.
There is a ritual I do each morning combining meditation, chakra cleansing and alignment. Sitting quietly with music on I ask the archangels and my spirit guides to assist me. I then envision energies and light through each of my chakras, cleansing and removing what does not serve me. See my full Morning Ritual here.
There are many great ways to practice developing your own psychic gifts. Here are 5 to exercises to start.
While waiting for the elevator, envision how many people will be in the elevator when it arrives at your floor.
When the phone rings, before you look at the caller id, say the callers name then check to see if you are right.
With a friend or family member, take a large bowl of water and ask them to put their hands in it visioning a situation or place. Have them take their hands out of the water and put yours in the bowl and see if you can sense their vision.
With a deck of cards, place them facing down and you will try to sense what the card is and match the same suit or number.
Gently close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths then return your breath to normal. Visualize colors and how you feel seeing them. Do you feel hot, cold, comfortable? Do you feel anxious, sad or happy?
There are many ways to practice these skills as they develop. One way is with angel readings. Angel readings are when psychics rely on intuition and clairvoyance while also using a deck of angel cards or oracle cards. Through the cards, psychics tune into angels who will then provide the psychic with their guidance and spiritual intellect for whomever they are watching over.
Another great way to use your gifts is through automatic writing. Also called psychography, automatic writing is the phenomenon of being able to produce writing directly from your own psychic abilities. The words that arrive on paper from the hand of the psychic can come from the subconscious or even the supernatural.
