Do You Have Psychic Ability?
How many times have you thought about someone, only to have them text or show up a short time later? Do you dream of things that eventually happen? Are these types of precognitive events second nature for you? If you answered yes, you are not alone.
Many experience intuitive or psychic waves. Many know it, while some ignore it or try to suppress it. Things are now starting to change. A growing number of people are embracing their “second sight” as part of who they are. If you have psychic/intuitive ability, you probably already know what I am going to say. Maybe, you already dreamed about this.
Growing Up Psychic
When I was growing up, people rarely discussed the idea of having psychic ability. There were little resources to learn about the gift. To understand what was going on inside a psychic mind, someone with ability had to find someone else with similar ability to share their experiences. As a child I would lay awake at night, I would sometimes hear echoes of distant conversations.
Closing my eyes on certain nights, I would see vivid images of people or places. One of the images that I recall distressed me most was of a vast area of brightly colored “clouds” or vivid blue, red and purple. The imagery did not bother me as much as the clarity and intensity. Looking back, it was very similar to looking at a picture of the cosmos with a brightly colored nebula headlining the view. It wasn’t until I entered my 20s that I began to embrace being psychic and all that came with it. I knew it was a gift; one that did not come with a user’s manual.
Working in the field as a medium for the last 20+ years has given me insight as to how widespread psychic ability really is. Most of my small groups have at least one (sometimes more) participants who tell me they also experience what I did growing up. I carried the ability to a career level, whereas others may simply tolerate having the ability to sense what others around them can not.
Variations on a Psychic Theme
I have found that there are many variations of being psychic. Some people are empathic, being immersed in the emotions of the living. Others sense, hear or see spirits of those who have passed. Then there are the intuitives, those who know when someone is about to say something or something is about to happen, before it happens. Another group feels earth energies and energetic changes around them. Most people have a mix of various types of abilities. There seems to be an endless combination of psychic skills. Every psychic/intuitive person I meet has different perceptions and experiences. The only common denominator I keep finding in people with true, strong ability is anxiety. We all worry or get anxious from time to time, but some of us also get an extra dose of it from simply being more open.
Psychic Ability Can Cause Psychic Overload
Psychic people always have the antenna up. It is usually earthly life distractions that make us disconnect from the higher airwaves. This is why many people have psychic dreams or spirit visits. When we sleep, we are usually relaxed and more receptive. During the day, it is a different story. We are usually wide awake and wide open. Many are on psychic sensory overload during waking hours and this can cause unknowing psychic burnout. When this happens, anxious feelings can creep in and may be fleeting or can linger. People who do not know how to focus and ground their energies can slip into a pattern of unwanted worry and anxiety.
Clients ask me, how do I unplug and turn it off? In my case, the ability goes into neutral when I am not working. This started as a conscious effort and now is learned behavior that keeps my psychic ability in a holding pattern until I need it. It is never turned off. I don’t think anyone can actually lose a natural ability willingly. However, there is a way to turn it down and reign it in.
Get in the Psychic Driver’s Seat
It takes patience and focus, but one can learn to hone their ability and control it at the same time. If you do have true ability, you may need to learn how to ground yourself and release energies, absorbed, that do not belong to you. Whether those energies are from other living people, spirits or the environment, there is a way to cleanse them out of your system. If you are psychic, own your energy and get rid of what doesn’t belong to you!
While there are numerous resources today for people with psychic ability, reading a blog, book or watching a video only helps to a point. As I mentioned, each of us with ability is different. We have different needs and experiences. In order to learn, one needs an interactive setting in which to share one’s experiences and hear about others with similar experiences, all under the guidance of an instructor who already has walked the path.
Psychic ability could be compared to an app we download to enhance our phone, tablet or laptop. In this case, we never downloaded it, this ability is an “app for the soul” that we never asked to install. We are, however, stuck with it, and there is something you can do about it.
Your Chair is Waiting
On Saturday June 15, I will be teaching the first in a series of classes that I designed as a beginner’s user’s manual for understanding psychic ability. My “Exploring Psychic Awareness” class is a three-hour (with a break in the middle) hands-on, interactive experience that is for those with some form of ability or those who think they may be psychic and want to know more.
I will have two special guests joining me for this class. Yoga and Meditation instructor Mark Van Buren will be joining us to guide us through a relaxing, grounding group meditation. Mark is one of the best meditation instructors I have met in my years of energy work. Also joining us will be Reiki Instructor, Board Certified hypnotist and Past Life Regression therapist Sandra Bemis. I have known Sandy from our days when we were part of Shirley MacLaine’s website group. She is one of the most knowledgeable people I know on the subject of human energies and past life experiences. I have also invited a few of my gifted medium trainees to help with parts of the class. If you watched the TODAY Show segment I was on back on Halloween, you will recognize a few of my students from that clip who will be helping me.
