As you think about the development of your psychic abilities it is highly important that you recognize and acknowledge that you already have all the abilities that you need to be more intuitive and psychic. As someone who serves as a medium and offers psychic readings, it is gratifying to see many of my clients begin to recognize their own psychic gifts and intuitive abilities during a reading.
We are all, as the saying goes, a spiritual being having a physical experience, this is accurate, but our true self and true nature is a perfect spirit being. We come here to this physical life being well aware of spirit and divinity; we know we are connected to spirit. We then become, socialized, cultured and indoctrinated to the ways of the ego and the world. We develop sensitivities, preferences, ambition and a sense of separation, fear and uncertainty.
We become committed to our perceptions and our thinking, attaching ourselves to the ego and only vaguely remembering our spirit and higher self. The solution lies in releasing our attachment to our physical experience and begin to experience spirt.
Developing psychic abilities is really quite simple, though not so easy, however with practice, we can learn to detach from the physical realm and attach to source.
Steps To begin to develop intuition:
- Set the intention- repeat out loud that you will raise the level of your vibration and be more connected to spirit and source. Restate it as often as necessary. By stating the intention you are signaling source, the spirit world and your spirit helpers that you are willing.
- Surrender you ego; let it be known to the spirit world that you will be released from your ego attachments and commitment to your own perceptions and thinking.
- Spend quiet moments each day stilling your mind and establishing a place for divinity to do their work; as if you create a blank canvas for your spirit guides to create the most beautiful painting. It is difficult to hear spirit with the endless flow of thoughts and constant noise of the ego.
- Keep EVERYTHING you know about the truth open to revision.
Not everyone is inclined to be a psychic, offer psychic readings or serve as a medium. However, everyone could benefit from reestablishing a conscious connection to their higher self and source. Once the process has started, more and more opportunities will present themselves to learn and to practice.
The Akashic Records are the subconscious universal records where all past and future life information is stored. It is where an individual can gain insight into their soul path and life’s mission.
The term Akasha means in Sanskrit “Not visible;” ether; space; sky; the substance that fills and pervades the universe. It is also known as the “Book of Life” and has been called the hidden library.
An Akashic record reading is much more than a psychic reading. It can provide understanding into an individual’s personal purpose, psychic connections and soul creations. It is a snapshot into past or parallel life experiences than can illuminate patterns and imprints, where an individual can gain understanding into their attractions, preferences and tendencies. Unlike a psychic reading, an Akashic Record reading provides access into an individual’s subconscious connection, offering specific information about any souls journey, in any place or time in history.
The difference between a psychic and a medium can be subtle, but is worthwhile to know the difference when choosing to have a reading. Psychic work and intuitive medium or psychic-medium work happen on a very much the same level, but there is a fundamental difference in these styles. Psychics must ‘process’ or ‘translate’ the insight they receive on the psychic plane into real-life meaning. Medium work is a direct communication that is personal to the client and the meaning is clear and needs little if any translation.
In a reading a psychic medium channels communication from the spirit guides, teachers and loved ones of the client. Providing messages that offer practical and specific guidance along their life path and are often a healing experience.Readings usually include abundant validation so the client knows the source is legitimate. It has been said that all mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums.
Generally, mediums are able to turn down their own rational mind, ego, logic processor and personal belief system to allow spiritual, psychic and intuitive messages to flow through them. There are many different methods a medium may use to achieve a connection; meditation, shamanic journeying, chanting are just a few, but one element is common, a medium will be a clear channel for spiritual messages.
Choosing a psychic or a medium can sometimes be a difficult endeavor. There are many psychics and mediums who operate ethically and honorably there are just as many that abuse the privilege of serving others.
First, it is highly important to recognize that all people, including you, have the ability to connect with their helping spirits and divinity. It is inherent in our DNA. To choose to use the services of a reputable Medium or Psychic can be helpful to begin the process of having a direct experience of a spirit, but ultimately we already have the ability to establish a conscious relationship with the spirit world – ALL of us. No Medium or psychic has “gifts” that you don’t have. A reputable medium would never suggest otherwise.
If a Medium or Psychic ever tells you that you are in danger or will be harmed if you don’t use one of their services, suggests services that causes financial hardship in any way or attempts to create a dependency on their services for wealth, happiness, or safety, etc., they are not reputable. If you choose to use the services of any psychic-medium and they contact you after and tell you to spend more money for some service, please decline, no reputable medium would do that. A reputable and ethical psychic or medium does not solicit business. Choose a psychic with care.
Many people would like to know how to develop psychic abilities but, unfortunately it is something that is viewed as being reserved for a very gifted few. This is not true. It would be disingenuous to suggest that these abilities to connect with spirit do not need development in most people, because they do. But the reality is ALL people have psychic ability, can connect with the spirit world and create a conscious relationship with divinity.
I hear many people say that they need to be “more spiritual”. I would say that in truth, we are perfect spirits and we don’t need to be more spiritual, just less attached to the physical. It is true that we are all spiritual beings; with all the psychic abilities and gifts that divinity has to offer who are just having a physical experience here.
The capacity to hear spirit and develop “psychic” abilities relies on our skills in quieting our physical mind- our ego. Since we are spirit first, when we learn to be less attached to our physical world and can learn to quiet our mind the only thing left is divinity – our higher self. The process is quite simple, but it can be difficult to reduce the seemingly endless stream of thoughts that permeate our mind. It does require practice and time.
Begin by setting the stage, light a candle, play soft music and most important set a clear intention to quiet your mind. When you find yourself “thinking”, restate the intention and allow yourself the luxury of being human. Try not to be critical of yourself for not succeeding immediately; it is truly a process that requires practice. Be gentle with yourself. Experiment with different music, times of day, body position etc., there is no single way to succeed; determine what works for you. Start with 5 minutes and as your skills improve, extend that time.
Most importantly remember that you are spirit, perfect and already connected to divinity, it just takes practice to learn how our spirit sounds. Enjoy the journey and the process. Namaste.
