LEGENDS & MYSTERIES
Develop Your Psychic
true that every one of us has psychic powers, extrasensory abilities
that can extend our experience and insight to the world we live in. We
depend upon these abilities even without realizing it, using intuition
to make decisions, making 'lucky' guesses, especially in areas that we
are skilled in or enjoy. But for most of the time, we remain unaware
of this potentially explosive ability that we have at our fingertips!
As much as it is true
that we all have these abilities, just like any gift or facility,
these talents can lie dormant until they are developed through
practice and exercise.
Before we delve into
the development of these gifts, it is important to understand that
there are many types of psychic ability and they come under four
Clairvoyance - The ability to
psychically see clearly;
Clairsentience - The ability to
psychically feel or sense clearly;
Clairaudience - The ability to
psychically hear clearly; and
Claircognisance - The ability to
psychically know clearly.
these categories covers a range of gifts and abilities the likes of
which vary from person to person. Clairvoyance, for example, can
include vivid dreams, visions, seeing auras around people as you look
at them, or closing your eyes and seeing auras and much more.
Furthermore, each person has all of these gifts, but to varying
degrees. So one individual may have wonderful clairvoyance, good
clairaudience, but minimal Clairsentience and claircognisance. Another
may be extremely strong in Claircognisance but have little of any of
As you develop your psychic gifts you will
discover your strengths and weaknesses. It's important to develop all
of the psychic gifts as all of them have the potential to expand and
grow. Also, you may find with a little work, what was once considered
your weakest gift can become an extraordinarily strong talent.
Developing your natural
gifts is actually quite easy and much of their maturation comes from your
intention to progress and the effort you put in to them rather than the
exercises themselves. It is important to remove all over exerted effort or
force. Imagine that the work you are doing is being fueled by a river of
energy flowing through you rather than being forced or pushed by you. With
each exercise you perform, focus on the activity itself rather than
worrying about getting a good outcome, just enjoy the exercise for it's
Prior to starting the
psychic development exercises, it is first important to understand how to
protect yourself. Protection is important in any area of life, for
example, you would not send a child off to walk to school on her own
without first teaching her the skills involved in crossing the road
safely. Likewise, in developing your psychic ability, you are stepping in
to a new area of life, and it is important to do this work safely. These
protection techniques will help you to do that.
Here on Earth, we have
healthy and unhealthy people. Violence, hatred, bigotry of all kinds
abound. To some degree we have all learnt to create boundaries for
ourselves that protect us from the worst of this focus and behavior. As
you develop your psychic gifts, you are opening the ability to tune in to
people and energies in ways that you previously have not been able to. It
is therefore important, to learn how to protect yourself at these new
levels as well. These exercises are simple to use, and are powerful. The
important thing to remember is to focus on the river of energy running
through you that is being used to build this protection, rather than
relying on your own energy and your own mind.
The first exercise is a
visualization. It is as powerful as it is simple. Simply visualize a
giant, sparkling, spinning mirrorball completely surrounding you. Each
time a negative thought, focus, or being of any kind comes your way, they
are repelled by the blinding light that they are faced with. This is a
great exercise to do if you spend a lot of time around negative or needy
The second exercise
involves Archangel Michael. This powerful angel is the protector and
defender. He will never cause harm and he will always protect and keep you
safe. For this exercise all you need to do is call Archangel Michael to
you. You can do this out loud or in your mind. Say "Archangel Michael,
please come to me now! Wrap your powerful wings of protection around me
until I am completely shielded by you. Protect me from all negative or
dangerous energy, Now!" Make sure you are clear and strong, not derogatory
These tools are two of
many techniques that help to keep you protected and strong as you journey
into your psychic gifts. As you develop your psychic gifts, you will come
across many other methods of self protection and I thoroughly encourage
you to explore and implement new tools if you feel guided to.
We have discussed
important clarifications regarding individual psychic ability, you have
learned about the four different categories of psychic talent and
important tools in protection to be used during psychic development. Now
you will learn a number of wonderful exercises to develop your own psychic
talents and more important tools to keep you centered and strong as you
develop your gifts.
The exercises used here
are designed to develop your clairvoyance, clairsentience and
clairaudience. I have yet to determine practices that specifically develop
Claircognisance, although it does seem to develop as your other abilities
Before you commence the
exercises, remember to set up the protection tools introduced in the
previous article. If you already have protection tools that you feel more
comfortable with, by all means use those instead.
Once you have completed
your practice and development session, make sure you ground yourself.
Grounding is being fully connected to your physical body and the Earth.
You can become ungrounded in a number of ways, but one of them is by
working with your psychic gifts. When you do this work, you raise the
level of psychic light or energy that is running through your conscious
mind to the point where it can become unsettled and you can feel
lightheaded, vague, disconnected. To remedy this, simply do something very
physical. Wash the dishes, eat some food, dance to music with a heavy base
or beat, or step outside and walk around barefooted on the Earth. These
are all easy to follow actions that will bring you fully back into your
The first procedure
you'll be introduced to in this article, is an exercise designed to help
you identify your current level of skill in each of the four psychic
areas. Please do not put too much emphasis in the results of this
exercise, merely use it as a guide for helping you understand your current
standing with these talents.
In The Kitchen
For this exercise, please
use all aspects of your imagination. Experience this exercise in whatever
way is easiest for you. Make sure you are comfortable, and that you won't
be disturbed. Remember to relax and enjoy this.
You find yourself in the
most beautiful kitchen with a great big picture window looking out over
lovely forest. See the trees swaying in the gentle breeze, watch as some
lovely kookaburras land in a tree and begin to cackle, laughing away as
you listen to their delightful sound! Your attention is drawn back in to
the kitchen when you feel heat on your leg. You remember that you are
cooking a beautiful, chocolate cake!
Just as you remember
this, the smell of chocolate cake comes wafting through the air! There's
nothing like the smell of baking to make your stomach rumble! Then, just
as you think you can't wait any longer, the buzzer or bell goes off on
your oven. You grab some oven mitts and open the oven door, careful to
avoid the rush of steam that pours out of the oven. You take out the cake
and place it carefully on the bench. When it has cooled a little, you tip
it out on the rack, and decorate it in whichever way you wish, icing
sugar, cream, frosting.
Now here you have this
beautiful chocolate cake and you just have to have a piece, so get a knife
and cut into it. Watch (and smell) the steam rising out of the freshly
baked cake. Pick up your piece and take a big bite out of it. That is the
most perfect chocolate cake you have ever tasted!
When you are ready,
return to the room, wiggle your fingers and toes to bring your
consciousness fully back into your body.
So the questions are:
Did you see the
kitchen, the forest, the kookaburras?
Did you hear the
kookaburras laughing, the oven bell going off?
Did you feel the heat,
taste and smell the cake?
Was any of this
experienced more as a 'knowing'?
How easy was it to
experience all of these things?
How clearly did you
see, hear, feel all of these things?
Which was the easiest,
seeing, feeling or hearing?
Which was the hardest?
The answers to these
questions will provide some insight into where your more developed gifts
lie and where your least developed gifts are. It is important to recognize
that every individual's experience of their gifts is just that...
individual. People can spend a lot of wasted time, lamenting the gifts and
psychic experiences that others have and that they donít, instead of
exploring and developing the wonderful gifts they do have. Let go of
preconceived notions of what constitutes a psychic experience and begin
opening up to the wonderful gifts you have been given!
So, on to the psychic
development exercises. I encourage you to practice each of these, even
when you feel you are getting nowhere, you will be making crossroads at
some level. Remember for every session to protect yourself prior to
starting and ground yourself once you've finished.
If at any time you
experience responses that invoke fear or discomfort, immediately call on
God or Archangel Michael, to take you out of ego (fear and darkness) and
into the light. Allow yourself to be lifted above any negativity.
Clairvoyance - Clear Psychic Seeing
1. Seeing Colors -
The first level to begin developing your clairvoyance is simply by
visualizing. Start with colors, imagine seeing the color sky blue,
magenta, red, emerald green and so on. If you have difficulty doing this,
then buy some pieces of colored cardboard from the local newsagent.
Choosing one piece of cardboard, look at the color for a while, then when
you feel ready, close your eyes and imagine the color. Imagine a stapler
that color, or imagine your house painted that color. Try to become
accomplished in seeing as many different colors as you can. When you feel
that you've mastered this exercise, move on to the next.
2. Seeing Auras -
Now that you have become comfortable with colors, you can move on to
seeing auras. This is the first level of this skill, but an important one.
Think of someone that you know. Using your imagination, answer this
questions. If you could see that person's aura in full color around their
head area, what color/s would you see? Remember that there's no pressure,
no one needs to know what you are doing. This is purely for the exercise
of it. Keep moving around their body, imagining what colors you would see
there. Practice this using a number of people you know and those you don't
know like politicians, celebrities and the like. Practice it on TV
personalities, whilst watching television. Before you know it you will be
fluent in aura speak!
Clairaudience - Clear Psychic Hearing
It is important, when
dealing with Clairaudience, to understand that psychic hearing, although
sometimes can feel like physical hearing, is often experienced more as
talking in your head. No, you are not crazy if you experience this form of
Receiving messages and
writing them down has been a powerful healing and guidance tool since time
began. This is also a wonderful tool to use to develop your clairaudience.
Archangel Michael is a
beautiful and divine creation of God, who lovingly and joyfully supports,
guides and protects each of us. Archangel Michael is very easy to hear, he
is also very accurate in his messages. For this reason he is wonderful to
work with in developing your clairaudience.
Have a pen and paper to
write down any messages you get. Get comfortable and make sure you will
not be disturbed. Do your protection exercises then...
Call Archangel Michael to
you and say to him, "What would you have me know right now?" Then open up
and wait for an idea, feeling, or thought to pop into your head. As soon
as it comes, don't judge it, just write it down. Once you've written it
down, go back and see if there is any more. You can ask questions to
clarify what you are being told, or to expand on the information you are
receiving. If at any time the message seems critical or negative,
understand that your ego is getting in the way, so say to Archangel
Michael, please take me out of ego and into the light so that I may hear
your more clearly."
In performing this
exercise it is vital that you do not judge what you are receiving, as it
is common for people to think they are making it up rather than receiving
it from Divine Source. If it is loving, positive and empowering, then it
is coming from a Higher Place. If it is negative, unloving (to you or
anyone else), competitive, or disempowering, then it is coming through a
filter of ego and can be discarded. Keep practicing you will quickly get
to know the difference.
Clairsentience - Clear Sensing
In this exercise the
design is to get you tapped in to feeling other people's emotions. (Please
note that there are added clearing exercises to be performed at the end of
The easiest place to do
this is somewhere public. A coffee shop is a great place to start. Having
protected yourself prior to going to the coffee shop, take a seat
somewhere that you are less likely to be disturbed but still have full
view of the comings and goings. Start by choosing a waiter. Focusing on
them, just open up and imagine what you think they are feeling. Are they
enjoying their day, or are they feeling frazzled and tired. Do you imagine
that this is their only job, do they have children, are they studying at
University, do they have a marriage or relationship, are they social or
private people, shy or outgoing, and so on. Just explore who they are.
Make sure you are using your imagination and that you aren't pressuring
yourself or second guessing what you come up with. Practice this
regularly, and you will see a definite improvement in your ability to tap
in to people. Make sure that each time you do this exercise, you complete
the session with these cleansing practices and then ground.
Imagine lots of little
cords attached to you and to the people you have worked with in this
exercise. Now see a giant, powerful sword coming down and easily slicing
through all cords, cutting them away from your body and dissolving into
White Light Shower
This can be done with a
real shower or just as a visualization. See a running shower but instead
of water, beautiful, sparkly white light is pouring out. Step under the
shower and watch as any dark or gunky energy washes off you and pours down
into the drain.
Once you have completed
these exercises, ground yourself using one of the exercises mentioned
These are just some of
many powerful exercises that you can use to develop your natural psychic
talent. Your psychic abilities are gifted to you to support your journey
through this world. Life becomes so much easier when you are using all of
the gifts given to you for this journey.
