Everyone has psychic ability; in fact, I suggest that we all have psychic experiences daily. Being psychic is not about having some “airy fairy” abilities that you can only be born with. Many of us simply do not have the words or labels to identify what we are experiencing as “psychic experiences.”
Trust Your Psychic Ability
There are many myths that surround the ability to utilise your own psychic information. Many people feel and acknowledge that they have intuitive abilities. What they don’t understand is that the only difference between being psychic and using your intuition is the level of trust you have – that your intuition is correct. Trust is a major component when working with your psychic abilities. One must trust the information that is coming through – the feelings, the inner communication, the pictures and the “just knowing.” By not trusting, you are in essence invalidating the information that is coming through to you from your higher self, your guides, and the universe.
There was a 1970’s TV show called the “Sixth Sense” that was about a crime fighting detective with psychic ability. During a typical episode, there would be a murder, and the psychic detective would be called in to help. This is where things got interesting to me. When the detective would walk into the crime scene, he would see the victim being murdered, or he would see them floating around the room trying to provide him with a piece of evidence. At times he would pick up an item like a piece of paper and have a precognitive flash where he would see someone driving a car off a cliff. I thought this was a pretty handy ability to have.
Later in life I started reading whatever books I could find on ESP, psychic ability, witchcraft, the paranormal and anything I could get my hands on about the occult. I knew that I had some kind of psychic ability, but I didn’t know how to tap into it on a regular basis. My expectation was to see things floating around, to have these powerful “experiences.” I figured that if I kept reading, I would have to become “enlightened.” I dabbled with tarot cards, and started performing readings for myself and friends. I thought for sure that I would become psychic by doing this. I was wrong.
A Validated Psychic Ability Experience
My first truly validated “psychic” experience occurred while I was in a meditation class, learning to meditate and connect with spiritual beings. I was instructed to pay attention to anything came to mind while I was meditating on other people and objects. I was told that I should mention whatever came to mind – to the person I was mediating on. That day, I had a wonderful experience where I connected with the spirit of a deceased person who was known to one of the group. This was validated by detailed and particular information that the deceased gave me to pass onto the person in question.
I immediately signed up and started in some clairvoyant programs. The basis of the training was that you learned how to perform readings by working with the more experienced readers. As I sat with my eyes closed as instructed during my first real psychic reading, I was still waiting for a big event to happen.
A couple of weeks later, when sitting with a coaching client – as she began speaking, I was amazed because I was seeing much of what she was talking about in my mind’s eye. In fact I could see more than what she revealed. After a while, I started to share with the client what I was seeing from my perspective with a view of helping her through the problems she was currently experiencing.
A light bulb went off in my head. I wasn’t experiencing anything new – just learning to tune into what i was previously ignoring. I’ve been seeing stuff like that my entire life.” No one had ever explained that this was the kind of “seeing” psychics experience when working on clairvoyant levels. It is in the mind’s eye that you see things floating around the room, and it is here that you see the aura. I was ecstatic.
Your psychic experiences are controlled by your chakras. Your chakras are energy centres within your body that have the ability to open and close as they process information. This is how YOU get to process information from the world around you.
While there are seven major chakras of the body, we will only be discussing the chakras that control psychic information.
Clairsentience is an ability of your second chakra; it is the ability to feel energy. The second chakra is located just below your belly button. Empath is another term for clairsentient. Have you ever walked into a room and “felt” bad vibes, only to find out that an argument has just taken place? Perhaps you have you have walked into a room that someone has just cleared, or where a healing has been performed, or where someone is in deep in meditation? You probably felt cleared, uplifted or that you were releasing energy and relaxing. You were processing that information through the second chakra. When you are feeling energy in this way, recognize that you are having a clairsentient experience.
Clairaudience is an ability of the fifth chakra; it is the ability to hear information. Your fifth chakra is located in the base of your throat, just below your voice box. Many people think that your inner dialog is just an overactive brain. We are, however, always receiving information on clairaudient levels. For example, have you ever tried to figure out how to do something and had “a little birdie” tell you what you should do? This is your clairaudience at work.
Clairvoyance is the ability to see pictures in your mind’s eye and is controlled by the sixth chakra -sometimes referred to as your third eye. It’s your ability to visualise, which should not be confused with your ability to trust or validate what you are seeing. It is the most important tool you will use as you develop your clairvoyance. It is a tool we all use on a daily basis. Working with your visualisation skills and flexing those muscles, will make it easier for you to accept the information that comes in on psychic or clairvoyant levels.
As you continue to read;
can you picture or visualise what your house looks like? What about your car? Can you see your bedroom or your office? What about the last holiday you took as a child? Can you see all of these things in your mind’s eye clearly, easily, effortlessly? This is the place that you go to visualise and see things on a clairvoyant level. Practice, practice and practice more.
The Psychic Ability Of “Knowing”
“Knowing” is an ability of the seventh chakra. It is the ability to just know stuff. This is how the bulk of my psychic ability manifests. The seventh chakra is located on the top or the crown of your head. When you work with information on knowing levels, you don’t know how you know something, you just know it. Since the seventh chakra sits on the top of your head and your body – the other chakras do not have the opportunity to process the information involved. You are saying something literally right off the top of your head. This is your power of knowing at work.
As you validate each psychic experience you have, you may find that you experience one thing one time, and then you might have a completely different experience the next time. Trust that each of these experiences is true for you.
As you can see, working with your intuition is very experiential. It is not something that you can just read from a book. It is something that must be experienced first hand, validated, and then practised and refined. Remember, we all have psychic experiences daily. What have you experienced today?
