4 Elements needed to develop your Psychic Abilities

crystals psychic


In the swirl of misconceptions, misunderstandings, and general confusion surrounding the fields of parapsychology and psychic activity, most people have no idea how to make distinctions between different types of psychic abilities. 


Wait a minute, you say, I didn’t even know there were different types!  You’re in the same boat as most everyone else who has a basic understanding of psychic reading and activity. Little does the general public know, it’s not all tarot cards and psychic phone reading, there are sharply defined distinctions between everything from the obvious (tarot reading and telepathy) to the surprising (clairaudience, clairsentience, and clairvoyance).


First, let’s discuss what defines psychic ability in the first place! Extra-sensory perception (ESP), prophecies of the future, and a sixth sense could all be defined under the blanket term psychic ability. But where does psychic ability come from? Actually, no one really knows, not even psychic readers. People who claim to have psychic abilities describe a sense of just having it without having any conception of how it got there. Most say that it is part of their regular consciousness, and that they simply know or feel things before, during, or after they happen despite being unable to explain how. Though parapsychology has been heavily criticized, scrutinized, and stigmatized, the truth is that as much evidence points towards its veracity as against it.

So what are some of the different types of psychic abilities?

To begin with, there is the art of channelling, which is defined as the ability to receive and transmit information from another external consciousness while in a decidedly altered state of mind. Though each incident varies in intensity and resulting activity, many share the same basic traits: a semi-trance-like state and the appearance of an outer entity expressing itself through the channeler. Many people have been able to obtain a psychic reading of another entity and consciously channel that entity but professional parapsychologists don’t recommend trying it until you’ve been well-trained and prepared.


Three more (related) types of psychic ability are clairaudience, clairsentience, and clairvoyance. Clairaudience is generally defined as the ability to hear or sense sounds that cannot be perceived by a non-psychic person. Clairsentience is another type of extrasensory perception in that clairsentient people can sense past, present, or future events through sensing them, though non-clairsentient people cannot perceive them. Clairvoyance is a synonym for extrasensory perception of any knowledge or consciousness of an event outside of seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, or smelling it.

Divination is another often-misunderstood type of psychic ability. Divination is the act of making prophecies or predictions through the practice of occult arts. Contrary to popular belief, this is different from intuition which is defined as the ability to perceive or act based on just knowing that it’s the right thing to do. Tarot Cards and tarot reading is a form of divination. Although the mainstream ideas of divination and intuition have been tweaked to seem like anyone can tap into this psychic energy field, the truth is that only a few people take the time to hone and develop their extrasensory perception skills.


What’s the difference between psychometry and psychokinesis?

Well, psychometry is defined as the ability to glean information about an object by obtaining physical contact with the object. Good examples of this are seen in countless movies. Envision it: The hero touches a book and, upon contact, is filled with images of its previous user and the fate that befell him or her. Psychokinesis is the ability to move objects through willing it or thinking it.



The Elements Necessary To Develop Psychic Abilities 

meditation crystal

All people are born with the capacity for psychic powers but only a few become psychic. There are two types of psychics: the natural born and those who are through practice are able to grow the powers within them. The natural born psychics are said to be the gifted as they have had a great amount of psychic powers since birth. On the other hand, those who are born with lesser amounts of psychic powers require heavy practice and understanding in order to grow. In other cases, psychics' abilities can be suddenly awakened by strong emotions or near-death experiences, which results in having great amounts of mental powers in an instant.


Here are some of the elements that can help a person to develop their psychic skills or abilities:


1. Understanding: Spiritual development requires time, patience and understanding. In order to develop your psychic ability, you must first understand its importance and purpose, having psychic powers also entails responsibilities; becoming a psychic means that you allow your mind and body to grow spiritually, set your goal into helping others, giving as precise information as possible and know that having a psychic ability is never to be abused.


2. Patience: Whether you're a natural born with psychic powers or not, you will only be able to develop your psychic ability with time, so don’t rush, the spirits will guide you through your journey. It is best to find a psychic group in your community or online to guide you.

3. Focus: Focusing first on one ability is good, choose which ability you would like to develop. It is important that you believe in yourself while doing a reading. Psychics have different types of reading and will choose the most appropriate based on the client.



Choose your tool: Always have the proper tool(s) before conducting a reading.

  •  Tarot Cards are a divination tool that is used to gain insight and resolve issues regarding heath, relationships, career, and spirituality.
  • Numerology, from the word itself, uses numbers that correspond to each letter of the alphabet. With a mathematical formula, psychics use numerology to give past or future information on a person’s life path.
  •  Astrology uses the celestial bodies such as the moon, sun, and planets to represent events that occur in a person’s life.
  • A Crystal Ball can be used to aid in clairvoyance, Clairvoyance is a Greek word that means ‘clear seeing’ and is a psychic ability that goes beyond the five senses to receive or download information using only the mind.
  • Some other ways a psychic may perform a reading is through palm reading, cold reading, dream interpretation, among other methods

4. Practice: Becoming a skilful psychic requires a lot of practice, nobody becomes a professional in any field in just a few days! When practising your psychic ability keep in mind that what you’re doing is good for someone, discard your doubts, no matter what your mind sees during a psychic reading take full trust in your ability.


Lastly, if you’ve just begun to learn how to develop your psychic powers, try some psychic ability tests first to know the scope and limit of your psychic powers. Psychic tests are available online and in a psychics’ community.

Smokey cleaning crystals

10 Benefits to Smoke cleansing 🤩

The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.

White prairie sage (Artemisia ludoviciana) is both antimicrobial and antibacterialTrusted Source. White sage (Salvia apiana) is also antimicrobial. And both have been shown to repel insects.

2.  Relief of the symptoms of some conditions

It turns out that sage may help clear the air of lots more than bugs and bacteria.

Though scientifically unproven, burning sage releases negative ions. This is said to help neutralize positive ions.

Common positive ions are allergens like:

  • pet dander
  • pollution
  • dust
  • mold

If this is the case, burning sage may be a blessing for those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions. But inhaling the smoke during the smudging can aggravate any respiratory condition. Wait until the smoke clears before going into the room.

Smudging has long been used to connect to the spiritual realm or enhance intuition.

For healers and laypeople in traditional cultures, burning sage is used to achieve a healing state — or to solve or reflect upon spiritual dilemmas.

 

Smudging may also be used as a ritual tool to rid yourself — or your space — of negativity. This includes past traumas, bad experiences, or negative energies from others.

This may help you establish a positive environment for meditation or another ritual. Choosing to sit and let go of negative thoughts in a ritual like this sets your intention and dedication to self-improvement. Choosing to engage in ritual can be the beginning of your change in mindset.

Burning sage creates fragrant smoke central to smudging’s benefits. You can use this incense to smudge yourself or specific spaces. Or according to some sources, you can smudge specific objects.

This can be useful with new purchases, gifts, or secondhand items. However, any item can be smudged.

If you have any concern with negative history or energy attached to a new or unfamiliar object, smudging may help bring peace of mind and make the object more sacred to you.

Tradition suggests that smudging can literally lift one’s spirits to banish negativity. Some research supports this.

A 2014 study documented white prairie sage (also known as estafiate) as an important traditional remedy for treating anxiety, depression, and mood disorders in certain cultures.

If burning sage can lift one’s mood, it could also be a great ally against stress.

A 2016 research project for the University of Mississippi established that white sage (Salvia apiana) is rich in compounds that activate certain receptors in the brain. These receptors are responsible for elevating mood levels, reducing stress, and even alleviating pain.

Smudging has been traditionally used to safeguard against negativity that could interfere with sleep.

Some research suggests that sage contains compounds that could help ease insomnia.

Classic garden sage (Salvia officinalis) is sometimes burned like white sage. It’s also been used to improve sleep and soothe anxiety.

In addition to dissipating negative energy, improving mood, and strengthening intuition, smudging with sage might improve your memory and focus.

A 2016 review of studiesTrusted Source noted that evidence for Salvia’s cognitive-enhancing benefits are promising — perhaps to treat dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Ridding the body, objects, and spaces of bad energy can help welcome in newer, fresher, and more positive energies. In a way, this could have an energizing effect and help with fatigue.

How to use:

Set your intention and say a mantra.

Intentions are central to the practice of smudging, so take a moment before you light the sage to determine what exactly it is that you're trying to purify or release from your space. Then, decide on a mantra or prayer to repeat while saving that encapsulates this intention.

It can be something you come up with on your own, or for a little guidance, Wasfie, suggests, "I let go and release what no longer serves me."

Light up.

Once you're ready, hold the sage at a 45-degree angle, light it using your match or candle, and let it burn for about 20 seconds. After that, gently blow out the flame so you see orange embers on one end. The smoke should now billow up.

Slowly walk around your space.

Slowly walk around your space and allow the smoke to waft around. Guide the smoke—and the negative energy—toward the open windows or a door, so it can escape.

Give special attention to areas in front of mirrors, in corners, and in spaces like foyers, hallways, and doorways, I'm also a big fan of saging technology like our phones or laptops. I usually hold the sage wand underneath them and then wave it around them.

Daily ritual V’s Routine

Daily ritual V’s Routine

The difference between a daily ritual and a routine is how you think about it. It’s how you perceive your actions. Are they mundane chores that just need to be completed, or are they actions that bring meaning, learning or joy into your life? It’s all about your mindset.

A daily routine is a series of tasks that you complete every day in the same order. For example getting up and going to work, stacking the dishwasher, brushing your teeth and getting the kids ready for school. A routine can feel mundane and boring because it’s something you have to do. You can complete your routines on autopilot. They might be efficient, but routines are not necessarily motivating or enjoyable. They are viewed as a chore.

A daily ritual is similar to a daily routine since they are also a series of tasks that are completed in the same order. But a daily ritual differs in its intention. Daily rituals are meaningful practices and are internally motivated. A daily ritual can provide energy and enjoyment along with efficiency and structure. A ritual is a carefully selected way of doing something that has a sense of purpose and a positive side effect in addition to the straightforward completion of the task.

In my last job, I used to get to the office early. I’d switch on my computer and while it was starting up, I’d put the kettle on. While the kettle was boiling, I’d log in and download my emails. Then I’d make my tea and make some porridge in the microwave. Then I’d go back to my desk and read my emails while drinking my tea and eating my porridge. When the porridge was finished, that’s when I kicked into work mode.

Was my morning series of tasks a daily ritual or just a routine?

It started out as a routine. Then I started to think about it and deliberately made it motivating. I bought a really lovely bowl for my porridge and beautiful cup for my tea. It started to become more pleasurable, meaningful and enjoyable. I reframed ‘getting through my emails’ to ‘mentally preparing for my day.’ It was my quiet time. I found out much later that colleagues knew to leave me on my own until my porridge ritual was over!

 

Rituals can help us take the boredom or stress out of a regular activity, they can help us be more thoughtful, help us connect to our purpose and help us achieve our goals.

Why do I need to cleanse my crystals?

Ever walked into a place that just has a bad vibe? And when you leave you feel like you need to take a shower and wash the feeling off? Same goes with crystals. “Consider your crystal to be your energy filter,” says Rosie “It absorbs all the crappy or unbeneficial energy around you and transforms it into a more positive or useful energy.”
