The problem isn’t having psychic abilities. Everyone has some sort of ability, whether it’s a gut instinct, a sudden inspiration for a work project, or uncanny problem-solving skills. The problem is that most don’t know how to develop or use their natural psychic abilities.
The key to using your psychic abilities is to lay aside preconceived notions about such abilities. That also involves disengaging your thoughts from cynical concepts you’ve picked up in society. In other words, you must be open to the idea that you have latent abilities that aren’t always understandable in terms of logic.
There are 10 things you should do to develop your psychic abilities:
- Recognize your impressions. Remember moments when you felt a strong impression or felt something was about to happen. Recall when you felt a certain vibe or impression about a room or object.
- Write down your impressions. Keeping a journal of when new impressions happen and the situation surrounding them is important. Don’t embellish. Keep it factual.
- Let go.
There are, no doubt, times you regret not acting on your instincts or psychic abilities. Release the guilt and forgive yourself for not acting. Make peace with the past.
- Understand your gift. People have different ways of receiving psychic information and you need to understand which way is yours. Some may hear things (clairaudience) while others have visions (clairvoyance). Some may just have sudden knowledge (clairsentience) while others feel emotions (clairempathy). No way is better than any other.
- Connect spiritually.
This can be an option although most caution in this area. There are bad things in the spirit world as well as good and, if inexperienced in this, you could invite the negative spirits into your life that can do a lot of harm. Spirituality should be kept to meditation, prayer, and reading of religious materials to get a better insight. Always pray a prayer of protection around yourself, your home, and your abilities. Ask for guidance in using them.
- Develop a routine.
This includes decluttering your home to allow for free-thinking, yoga, listening to music, or other things in your daily routine that will help clear your head.
- Research tools and ideas.
Some psychics use crystals to help them concentrate and there is a lot of talk about balancing chakras with exercise and deep breathing. Learning about these things is a good practice before implementing them in your life.
- Keep it to yourself first.
You will not be confident in your abilities at first, which is why you right them down. As they prove correct, your confidence will build. Sharing with friends or family may open you up to a cynical reaction, which can discourage you from continuing. Some may even think you are crazy and cause legal or other problems in your life. Continue to be careful who you share your abilities with as you grow in confidence.
- Patience is a virtue.
Don’t try to take on too much too soon. You may not be ready and developing these types of abilities takes years of practice and understanding. Don’t expect to make money off it either. These types of gifts aren’t meant for profit. Use them to help others and your reputation will grow. Later, you can use them to earn a living when you can become a teacher, a counselor or a writer to help others.
- Seek a mentor.
Every well-known person with these abilities has a mentor. This is important for understanding more about your gifts and how to use them. Having a mentor will also ensure you remain safe while you explore your abilities.
Being able to use your abilities without fear is an important aspect as you grow into them. There will be a time when you will have enough knowledge and confidence that you can use them freely.
