Increasing Psychic Abilities Through
We all have psychic abilities. For many
people this ability is dormant or asleep.
It's a bit like the person who sits at a
piano for the first time and discovers that
they have a natural talent for music. The
ability was always present it just takes the
right circumstances for the talent to become
Most of us have times in our lives when we
notice something at work that can be
considered psychic. Usually this psychic
ability is in the form of intuition, hunches
or gut responses that seem to defy reason or
logic. These uncanny hunches and sudden
insights can sometimes leave us feeling
bewildered, but the truth is that they are a
perfectly natural ability. And like any
other talent, psychic abilities can be
trained and perfected.
There are any number of tools and methods
available to the psychic any or all of which
may help to increase or focus intuitive
skills. Most psychics use some form of
meditation to enter a frame of mind that
heightens intuitive awareness. Some read
palms or tea leaves, tarot cards or rune
stones or use a crystal ball; some may
involve intricate rituals. Regardless of the
tools used to assist a psychic reading they
each serve to aid the psychic in entering a
form of focused meditation which greatly
enhances the natural intuitive sense.
Focused meditation provides the frame of
mind that is most receptive to intuitive
information. Meditation quiets the mind,
filters out the noise and chatter of the
conscious. This filtering of conscious noise
allows the sub-conscious mind to voice its
thoughts, as well as enable the mind to tune
in to the environment. Some have called this
a heightened state of awareness or altered
consciousness. The attention is drawn inward
with a kind of detached awareness.
Developing your ability to enter into this
heightened state of mind plays the important
role in increasing your intuitive senses.
If you're unfamiliar with the practice of
meditation then the following exercise
should help to gain a better understanding
of the methods used. This exercise focuses
on breathing and visualization. Controlled
breathing provides an area of immediate
connection with the mind and body and also
increases the supply of oxygen to the brain.
Begin by finding a comfortable place to
perform your meditation. This can be any
place of your choosing, provided that you
find it comfortable and relaxing. It is not
required for you to sit, though you may, if
you choose. Many people find it difficult to
sit still for any length of time. Standing
or even walking slowly is perfectly
acceptable for the sake of this exercise.
Focus your attention on your breathing.
Notice the air as it enters your body. Try
to breathe in through your nose and exhale
through your mouth. Take slow, deep breaths.
Inhale slowly through your nose and hold the
breath in for nine seconds, then exhale
slowly for another nine seconds, count out
the seconds steadily, not rushed and not
sluggish, try to find a pace that feels
comfortable, just remember to relax your
Inhale for nine seconds, exhale for nine
seconds, and repeat this process nine times.
With every breath, imagine that you are
inhaling precious life giving air and
exhaling any unwanted energies. After you
have repeated this cycle nine times you can
begin your visualization. Try to maintain
the rhythm of your breathing without
counting it out in your head.
At this point you may notice random thoughts
popping into your head, simply dismiss them
as they enter your mind, let them slip away
Imagine that you are walking across a dry
and sandy landscape. The temperature is
comfortable, the air is easy to breath and
you feel at ease.
As you walk along you notice a shape on the
horizon. As you near the shape you see that
it is a stone building, a round, stone
building with a single door. You are facing
the door and now you see that this door is
slightly open and a light is coming from
Now, you are standing at the door and decide
to push the door open. You open the door and
enter the stone building.
Inside you see a round room with a table in
the centre. The room is well lit, warm and
comfortable. You approach the table and
notice a small wooden box, paper and a pen.
You form a question in your mind that you
would like answered, an issue that you would
like resolved, it does not take you any time
to form this question. You write this
question on the paper before you and place
the paper in the box. You see the box has a
lid and you close it.
After a moment you open the box, you see
that the question is no longer written
there, instead an answer has appeared. You
take the answer with you as you leave the
building and return to your present space.
You may see immediate results with this
exercise or it may take several attempts
before the answers found within the box make
any sense to you. Over time this
visualization becomes much easier to enter
into and you may be tempted to treat this
exercise as some sort of oracle. This is not
the true intention. Instead what we are
trying to accomplish is entering into the
receptive mode of meditation that was spoken
of earlier. The easier it is to enter into
this state the more likely it is that you
will become tuned into receiving intuitive
