Have you ever had a “gut feeling” about an event or you were able to predict who was calling on the phone as soon as it rang? If you answered "Yes", then you are psychic. The truth is, each and every one of us has psychic abilities, but we've never been aware of them or have never been taught how to use these abilities.
Because the majority of people spend so much time watching TV, browsing the Internet, or trying to finish everything on a To Do list, they never spend any time listening to their Higher Selves who are there serving as guides in this lifetime. Your mind becomes filled with commercial jingles, gossip stories, and the busy-ness of life that your psychic awareness and Higher Self gets drowned out. Now you're reacting to events and happenings not knowing what to do instead of going within yourself and connecting with those "gut feelings."
So how do you go about increasing your psychic abilities?
Spend time by yourself. Find a nice, quiet place where you can be by yourself for at least 15 minutes or so a day. You can spend this time in meditation, relaxing, praying, or just closing your eyes and taking deep breaths. The idea is to have quiet time where you’re not bombarded with outside stimuli. This is the time to unclutter your mind. This is also the time to ask for guidance to help with your goal of developing psychic skills.
Stay in the now. If you’re constantly worrying about the future or what needs to be done, you’re blocking out the energy that helps you stay focused. Part of developing your intuition is the ability to listen and pay attention to what is going on at this moment.
Visualize yourself being confident in your psychic abilities. Having faith and confidence in your capabilities will only increase your power. Blocking out the negative programming from society and the media will certainly help. We’ve been programmed for too long now to follow the crowd. If you’re not a naturally positive person, having confidence in yourself is not something that will change overnight. It may take some time to develop, so start with creative visualization and envision yourself being confident and positive.
Find a mentor. Read about or spend time with other people who have developed their psychic skills. Being around their energy will inspire you and help improve your own abilities. There are plenty of articles on the web, videos on YouTube, and seminars created by professional psychics. Find one person or a few people who resonate with you.
Practice. As with anything in life, the more you practice, the better you will be. You can do this through exercises such as time guessing, dream interpretation, or guessing what people are thinking.
As with any psychic exercise you undertake, it’s important to protect yourself with good energy. It can be as simple as visualizing a white cloud of light surrounding you or asking Archangel Michael for protection.
Developing your intuition or psychic skills will take time, but it can be easy and fun if that is your intention. Your psychic abilities are gifts given to help you on your journey, so use them with love!
