Psychic & Intuitive Development
Every creature is born with instincts that allow it to survive. We use our intuitive and psychic abilities every day to “read” our environment to see if “is it safe”. We are doing “readings” for others and ourselves; as to how can we improve our lives.
Every culture that we have studied has shown an interest in spirituality. We have “enlightened beings” who have and continue to tell us that Spiritual Enlightenment exists and an endeavor worth our pursuit.
Our psychic, intuitive abilities are part of our soul body, higher self, they are a natural part of who we are. They help us to make better decisions, better choices in our lives, and to have a direct connection to the Divine. In developing your intuitive psychic abilities you will learn the different ways of tuning into your subtle senses of seeing, hearing, knowing, sensing. You will learn how to become more psychic and to do psychic readings and medical intuitive readings and healing.
Differences in Psychic Abilities
These psychic-intuitive skills or senses fall into the following categories: clairvoyant (clear seeing); clairaudient (clear hearing); clairscentient (clear sensing); clairolfaction (clear smelling); and, clairgustant (clear tasting).
We can have one or all of these senses. Some are also stronger than others, or may come through at different times. When we practice today just beware of in which ways you receive the information.
Clairvoyant: Is the ability to see pictures or images come into your mind’s inner third eye. These pictures come as bits and pieces or flashes of information. Some people see these images with their eyes closed or even with eyes open. You may be looking at a person in front of you, but get other images around them, kind of ghost like, past, present, or future. Images can come in meditation or in a dream state. The images come from the beyond to you, seems like out of nowhere, then you are given a thought or message along with it. The message can be so clear that you cannot mistake it or in other instances you may need time to decipher it. The information coming through can be in the way of objects, symbols, colors, you may see persons, scenes like small movies, lights, words, auras, past life images of people, loved ones crossed over, visions of the past, present or future, and people or places in other spiritual dimensions, such as higher sentient or enlightened beings. Some people see their guides or angles.
Clairaudient: You may be clairaudient and psychically hear sounds, words, sentences, thoughts, tones, music, and other types of sounds or noises that come into your head. These sounds and words are inaudible to the normal hearing range and seem to come from out of nowhere, but are heard within your head or beside your ear.
Clairsentient: This is the ability to feel within your own physical body sensations of energies around you, other people’s emotions, feelings and even physical conditions such as aches and illnesses. You may sense the presence of people around you that are living or in spirit form, such as relatives, guides, and angels.
Clairgustant: The ability to psychically taste a substance, the energy of a particular food and not the actual food that is tasted on the tongue. An example can be when you intend to eat some food that is not good. You may have an odd taste that the food is off or going off and you get a strong taste on your tongue warning you not to eat it.
Clairolfaction: This is the ability to pick up the energy of the food or aura around the body, you can smell the energies. These energies are transformed into smell in the nose. An example would be a food that has gone off, or pipe tobacco or perfume of a loved one passed over.
In order to connect deeper to our intuition and psychic center, it helps to empty the mind, to quiet it; so that we can be open to receiving messages from the beyond. From our Guides, Ascended and Awakened Masters, and our higher self, which is directly connected to God/Source, Universal Consciousness. Being aware of our energy field within us and around us allows us to be more sensitive to the energies and messages coming to us from higher source and that of others. There are a number of techniques we can use to become more conscious, aware and sensitive.
Hand Exercise-Building the Chi
This exercise is 10 minutes in length. Find a comfortable, quiet place to sit and be relaxed. Take the time to close your eyes, and bring your awareness, your focus inward, closing off the external world around you. Focus on your belly, just below the navel, breath a few times into the 2nd Chakra, centering the energy and awareness there, (this is your energy center 2 inches below the navel). Begin by placing your hands together in a prayer position, rub your palms together a couple of minutes, then separate them about a quarter inch, have them almost touching. Feel the warmth, tingling in your fingers and palms. Pull your hands apart slightly, and then bringing them together, staying connected to the energy, make this movement, allowing your hands to move further apart. Then allow the energy in your hands to move naturally, swaying movements of your hands, always staying connected this your energy in your hands, never disconnecting from it. Letting go of the thoughts in your mind, and relaxing your body, letting go of tension. Let the energy move your hands and arms gently, like a dance.
After 5 – 6 minutes — stop. Place your hands on your lower belly and rest in your 2nd chakra center. Take a few breaths in your belly, ground your energies, by visualizing your energy flowing from your belly area down your legs, out your feet into the earth, and when you are ready open your eyes. Notice how you are more relaxed, more settled inside and your mind is quieter. When your mind is in this quiet place you can connect more to your higher self, inner knower, and the intuitive part of yourself that can guide you in life. When wanting to connect to your intuition, go to your 2nd chakra, lower belly area and focus your attention here. Close your eyes, move your awareness from your head to your belly and ask the question to your higher self, starting with the phrase “if I could know….” “if I could see…” adding your question, then wait for the guidance to come to you. This helps to receive your guidance from the higher part of yourself and not just your analytical part of your mind, that can get confused at times because of duality of the Ego, with its beliefs, programs, and conditioning.
