Encountering people with some level of psychic ability is pretty much a common experience. Consider the times when someone has told you that they have had some sort of “supernatural” encounter. You probably have had one, yourself. That may very well be the reason why you’re reading this now! However, meeting someone with an advanced level of psychic ability is somewhat less common. But that shouldn’t be the case, since we all possess some form of this ability. It just needs to be developed and brought forward for our everyday use.
What Do We Mean by “Psychic Abilities”?
The term “psychic abilities” pertains to a wide variety of skill sets. For example, there are those who are able to contact a realm that exists beyond our normal experience. When doing so, they may also be able to communicate with the entities that reside there. Some are able to understand that the past, present and future exists simultaneously. As such, they can connect with and reveal the future. Others may be able to read the thoughts and emotions of others (humans and animals). Some may even be able to ease (or cure) the suffering brought about by injury or disease.
Fortunately, anyone who is interested in psychic phenomena has the option to amplify their own psychic abilities. Since everyone has some level of psychic aptitude, exercises in this article can assist in bringing out enhanced psychic talents.
Developing Your Psychic Gifts
When it comes to the origin of one’s psychic abilities, the “starting point” rests within one’s own subconscious. That’s because the subconscious is less hindered by the limitations of the “reality” that we have been taught since childhood. Consider, for example, the lack of limitations that you can encounter when you dream. And, of course, dreams originate in the realm of the subconscious. With that said, here are some ways to develop your own latent abilities:
Meditate on a daily basis – Meditation is designed to shut down the conscious mind’s continuous “self-talk”. Unfortunately, this constant internal chatter acts like static which blocks subconscious messages (including psychic ones). Learning to meditate should be your first step when developing your psychic abilities.
Trust Your Instincts
Trust your instincts – Learn to heed the feelings that come from within. In addition, each time that you do and something positive occurs, say (out loud) that you are grateful for that assistance. This positive reinforcement will eventually pay off.
Focus on perfecting your awareness – Endeavor to be aware of everything that surrounds you. When things are relatively quiet, take a moment to notice each sound that you are still able to hear. Pay attention to things like the sound of a ceiling fan or a movement of a shadow. Listen and identify each sound that you hear from the outdoors. This is designed to help you to sense and identify even minor intuitive messages that will occur.
Take note of what actually happens in regards to your intuition – If you experience an intuitive feeling, give yourself credit if it turns out to be accurate. If it doesn’t, then acknowledge that, as well. The combination of positive and negative reinforcements will guide your subconscious towards more positive experiences. Just don’t beat yourself up too badly over the negative ones.
Pay attention to your dreams – Dreams serve a number of different purposes. They arrange bits of memory into an order that is easily stored in your brain’s “memory banks”. They can attempt to resolve emotional issues and trauma. However, they can also assist you when it comes to connecting with your spiritual self. Place a pen and notepad by your bed and jot down anything that you can remember about your last dream. As you become more skilled in your dream communication, you can even move on to advanced practices. One of the more useful advanced dreaming practices is known as “lucid dreaming”. Take a moment and look up that term.
These are some of the suggestions that you will find useful when it comes to honing your psychic abilities. As your psychic abilities become more enhanced, you will begin to notice just how useful they can be.
