Recently I was asked how to develop psychic ability and intuition. I’ve been immersed in vibrational healing and subtle energies for so long that I forget what a foreign subject it is for most people.
We ALL have the ability to SEE, HEAR, and FEEL the subtle vibrations emanating from the energy that exists all around and through us. I call these the subtle, psychic, or intuitive skills. Since we only use about 10% of our brain, most of us don’t have that part turned on. Telepathy, ESP, being clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient and all the rest are God-given talents we all have access to.
Most people are born with all these abilities.
A small child might tell their parent that there is someone standing in their room. Since the parent can’t see the “being,” they tell the child that there is no-one there. They often start making fun of the child and saying the “boogie man” is going to get them. They accuse the child of lying and actually punish them. Either reaction makes the child question what they thought they saw – because parents know everything. And, the ability is shut down in the child. By the time a child is in the first grade, they usually have completely shut down these psychic abilities.
A few people are able to maintain these subtle psychic skills. They often are ridiculed as being weird and they themselves often wonder if they are really insane – hearing voices or seeing things that others don’t see.
As we grow and mature in our spirituality, we begin getting back in touch with these psychic and intuitive skills. In the beginning, we may only have access to one. Or, one of the skill sets is easier for us.
I personally FEEL things – meaning I am clairsentient. I have an inner knowing that is beyond the rational mind. I hold a crystal and I FEEL a pulse or vibration or warmth or coolness. I’ve always loved feeling things. I walk through clothing stores and touch the fabrics. I love the softness of a dog or cat’s fur. I love the feeling I get when I step into warm water – in the bath or the tropics. I love how a storm feels – the power, the wind, the intensity of energy. I can feel the anger, tension, or love in a room – or a person.
I HEAR and SEE on occasion as well. I have found that taking a Shamanic journey or participating in a guided meditation allows me access to these subtle psychic skills.
Some people HEAR voices or sounds. That is called being clairaudient. Many of you have experienced hearing a ringing or high pitched tone in one ear for a short period of time. At first, you may think that it is a hearing problem or some mechanical device nearby. It is actually high-frequency tones being sent to you. Many people literally hear angelic choirs singing.
Energy is vibration. Everything that exists is giving off a vibration. All vibration creates sound – usually out of our hearing range. Some people can tap into that. Your guides and angels, nature spirits, the ascended masters, etc. are all present right here right now. They just exist in dimensions that vibrate faster than ours. Most people can’t see or hear or feel them because you have to raise your own vibration in order to tap into those dimensions.
Everyone has one or more Guides that work with them and communicates continuously with their soul. Some people actually SEE these beings. It may be crystal clear, as real as you and me, or it might be a very bright light, or ghost-like, or shadowy. I’m sure there are as many ways to see them as there are people.
People who SEE are always commenting about the dolphins they see around me. A person who can “see” psychically is called clairvoyant. I often hear that there is a 6-foot dolphin just behind me and to the left. I just have to take their word for it because I haven’t seen it myself. People can literally see angels and archangels, fairies (fairy’s), ascended masters, negative or detrimental energies, energetic cords – the list is endless.
I must interject a word of caution here. Whatever a person hears, sees, or feels is tainted by their own beliefs, fears, and judgments. A person may hear voices – from a very high vibrational being such as an Ascended Master. But, what the voice says and what the person hears can be very different. Never blindly believe what a person tells you they were “told.” Check it out in your own heart and see if it feels like truth. If a person is caught up in their own anger, fear, past life crap, disease, or whatever, what they tell you isn’t always 100% accurate. So, please use caution. This is also true of books, seminars, well-meaning friends, etc. We are all human and all have limitations. Channeling can be fascinating, but the information is only as clear as the “channel” it is coming through.
I personally have very strong intuition. I’ll be talking to a person and I’ll just have a KNOWING about something I need to tell them that will help them in their life journey. As I begin to speak the words I often receive a confirmation about the TRUTH of them by having chills and rushes of energy run up and down my body. Often others receive the same chills or rushes of energy as they hear the words. Because I am a FEELing person, my subtle skill confirmations come in the form of feelings. Someone else would hear a voice saying yes or see something that is a confirmation of what their intuition is telling them.
Tears are another tool that my guidance uses to point me in a certain direction. If I read, hear, or see something that speaks to my soul, tears will form. I’ve learned to acknowledge the tears and follow the guidance. It has always lead to magical things.
You can “tune in” to plants, animals, crystals, anything really. You can tune in to why the car broke down. It is as simple as asking “What message do you have for me?” or “Why did this happen?” The more you practice, the better at it you get. Clear yourself by working on eliminating your beliefs, fears, and judgments and then play with subtle energy often.
One of my favorite tools for developing your psychic ability and intuition is called a pendulum. You clear it. You practice with it until you constantly get clear yes and no answers. Then, if you aren’t sure what your heart is saying or you ask your guidance system and aren’t getting a clear yes or no answer, you can ask the pendulum. It is a great way to begin. After awhile, you will know the answer before you ask the pendulum and the pendulum is simply a confirmation. Dowsing, focusing on the pendulum, and asking questions of the Universe, helps a great deal in increasing your sensitivity to subtle energy.
Also to enhance your intuitive skills you can spend time alone in nature, in silence, and in meditation.
