Developing Psychic Abilities
You Are Psychic
Yes, you! Psychic abilities aren't something given to certain people and not others. Of course, some people are born with stronger psychic abilities from birth, but it's something that each and every person is capable of. It is commonly perceived that psychics and psychic mediums are special people...Well in a sense, yes they are- they have tapped into their psychic ability and use it for a greater purpose, which most times involves helping other people with their gifts. So they are special people, but they don't possess something that you don't.
Psychic ability involves using your senses and being aware of your surroundings and things that you cannot always see with your physical eye. It involves tuning into that small voice that tells you that something is wrong, or that something is right. It means being aware where most people aren't. It involves tapping into that 'sixth-sense' that you often hear referred to when it comes to psychic abilities.
Learn to Relax
One of the key ingredients for tuning into your psychic abilities involves learning how to relax. Really relaxing means that you are also aware of the sights and sounds around you, not relaxing in front of the TV with munchies in hand! Take the time to breathe slowly- and then feel your breath as you are doing it. Close your eyes as you breathe in, relaxing with each breathe you take. Soon you will notice that your body is entering full relaxation mode. This could be considered meditation, and yes in a way, it is, but this is a mini-meditation and exercise on just relaxing, and being.
Practice Makes Perfect
The best way to develop your psychic ability is to practice. Start small, using the things mentioned above- true relaxation and learning to live in awareness. Meditation is key, according to some experts, but not necessary at all according to others. Once you have the basics down, you can begin to work on things such as focus, to fine-tune your senses even more. There are a variety of books on the subject of psychics and psychic abilities, along with relaxation and meditation techniques. When choosing a book, go for the one that seems to speak to you- remember that inner voice? It will tell you which book you need to read.
There are also many wonderful online websites and communities online for developing your psychic abilities. All you have to do is a basic search in a search engine and the results will be plentiful. With practice, patience, and faith in the process, you will be well on your way to using your own psychic gifts.
A Side Note
If you are dealing with a child who seems to be exhibiting some psychic tendencies, there are resources for finding out more information on children and psychic abilities. If you feed your child's abilities and don't 'stifle' them, it will be very beneficial to your child.
