Everyone has intuition and psychic abilities. Like any other skill if these are not regularly practiced and honed the natural ability will simply lay dormant. Spiritual skills can be developed and finely tuned, regardless of whether you choose to use the skills professionally or to help friends and family.
Opening up your spiritual and psychic gifts requires preparation and dedication. Follow our five easy steps to strengthen your psychic abilities.
- Believe in Yourself
Have faith and belief in your own abilities. Everyone is different so your psychic abilities will not be exactly like anyone else’s. You may find you have a natural gift of empathy and compassion but find it more difficult to pick up information when using tools like tarot cards or psychometry. Enjoy the experience of exploring your abilities and learning new ways to connect with your Source energy. A spiritual or psychic reading will also help you identify psychic gifts you never knew you had.
- Make Time to Relax
Meditation is the key to finding inner peace and harmony. By regularly practicing this relaxation technique you will be able to stop internal chatter, achieve greater self-awareness and maintain focus and clarity. Meditation changes brain wave patterns and decreases metabolic rate. It also relieves tension. Find a quiet space, where you will not be disturbed, and aim to focus entirely on your breath in order to relax the mind and body. Start with a short 5-minute daily meditation and build this up into a regular practice of at least one hour. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you for your commitment.
- Overcome Your Fears
Contact with supernatural phenomena can be daunting and a little scary, particularly if you have not explored this medium before. When you are developing your skills it is always best to seek the advice of experienced psychics and to use psychic protection at all times. Read books, go to seminars and find out all you can to help you overcome your fears of the unknown. Trust that your guides are always with you.
- Stay Positive
When working spiritually or psychically it is important to maintain a high vibration. By the Laws of Attraction your energy will attract energy that is on the same vibrational level as yours. Negativity lowers vibration and attracts low energy spirits that feed off negativity. A positive outlook instantly raises your vibration and enables you to tune into higher vibrations and Source energy with ease. It is therefore important to use your meditation time as an opportunity to offload negative stress and tension before you move into a deeper state of consciousness.
- Expand Your Imagination
Open your mind to exploring new ways to use your spiritual skills. Try remote viewing techniques to help you visualise visiting places without being there in person. Work with your guides to receive guidance and information and welcome the opportunity to increase your psychic knowledge whenever you can. There are many psychic and spiritual development courses and books available to help you develop your natural skills. A spiritual or psychic tarot reading will also offer practical advice that is tailored to your own unique abilities.
