It isn't rare for people who have experienced psychic readings to want to start developing their own abilities. Nurturing intuitions and spiritual skills that we are often taught to ignore is always a positive process, and it will also open up the mind to future readings, so follow these three steps to make a healthy start on your journey.
Psychics are able to remain calm and open-minded; fostering that kind of mental stability should be seen as a foundational part of your journey, and meditating is a great way to start. Take some time each day, preferably in the morning, and find a space in which you will not feel disturbed. Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and concentrate on your breathing, letting other thoughts and feelings go as soon as they appear in your mind. It may seem tricky and frustrating at first, so start with just five minutes, then build up from there.
2. Understand the Basic Abilities
It's no secret that there are a lot of common misunderstandings concerning psychic abilities. One of the most widespread is that all psychics have the same abilities, but this is not the case. Though many gifts exist, there are four central ones that you should be aware of:
- Clairvoyance (Clear Seeing): The ability to see things in your mind's eye. This might be a clear and unambiguous image, but could also be something more symbolic.
- Clairsentience (Clear Feeling): The ability to receive messages from emotions and feelings.
- Clairaudience (Clear Hearing): The ability to divine messages by hearing things that most people cannot.
- Claircognizance (Clear Knowing): The ability to understand or know something without having any facts.
3. Keep a Dream Journal
Dreams are extremely powerful, but most of us forget them within just a few minutes of waking up. That means that a huge portion of our worldly lives are lost in the ether, never recorded. To prevent that from happening, start a dream journal. Just keep a notepad and pen next to your bed, then take the time to write down your dreams as soon as you wake up. Over time, you will begin to notice patterns and start to understand your inner-self more fully. This kind of understanding and openness is a key part of developing psychic abilities and opening yourself up to psychic readings. You may even begin to experience prophetic dreams.
Above all, remember to remain calm and patient. Psychic abilities are often draining; it can take years to develop them, and even some of the most advanced and gifted individuals feel burnt out if they try to give readings day after day. This is a journey that has no final destination, so you should appreciate the improved readings and intuitions that come along with your first steps without feeling like you need to push yourself.
