How to Develop Your Psychic Abilities



Everyone has some psychic abilities. Hunches, dreams, intuition and that ‘gut feeling’ that something is wrong or ‘off’, are all manifestations of your psychic self. Like any talent though, it needs to be nurtured and developed if it is to grow strong and be useful to you. Here are 5 things you can do to increase your psychic abilities and build on your spiritual growth.

Meditation

Meditation is one of the best things you can do for increasing your psychic abilities and spiritual life. Meditation CDs are available online from many places (see google), it is a matter of finding one that appeals to you. Following meditation CD are often better for beginners it is much easier to follow a voice than relying on your mind not to be distracted. I personally use Yoga Nidra which is available online from many suppliers. I will be writing a full article about meditation soon, but in the meantime here are a few pointers: Be somewhere you will not be disturbed. Be comfortable, but not in a place or position you would normally fall asleep in. Focus on making your breathing slow and deep. Repeating a phrase like ‘breathe in peace, breathe out love’ in your mind as you breathe will help your mind to quieten and for your body to relax. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work first time or if you have difficulty stopping random thoughts from creeping in – practice makes perfect and you will get more and more out of it as time goes on.

Relaxation

Stress is an epidemic in our society, mostly due to the many pressures and responsibilities we have each day. It is very difficult to hear that inner spiritual voice when your mind is full of lists of things you have to do and problems are going round and round. Taking the time to relax and take your stress levels down to zero will not only make you much healthier and better able to cope with life, but it will also increase the psychic energy in your body and make you more able to hear guidance from your intuition. Whether it is relaxing in a warm bath, walking to clear your mind, gardening, doing crosswords, listening to a relaxation CD or your favourite music; - taking 30 – 60 minutes a day unwinding and getting to a state of calm peace will improve all aspects of your life, especially the psychic and spiritual parts.

Examine Your Dreams

Your dreams are like messages from the subconscious and psychic part of your mind. When you wake up in the morning, try to lie there and remember your dreams from the night before. Think about how you were feeling in the dream, were there any symbols or things that have meaning for you. Who were the people and what were they saying to you. If you can, write them in a journal (see below) to see your dreams change over time and to see how they relate to the events in your life. Relaxation and/or meditation before going to bed can be very helpful in improving both your quality of sleep and the psychic messages in your dreams.
