Becoming Psychic

Becoming psychic isn’t a case of you being the ordinary you that you’ve been for the last 35 years on Monday and suddenly being a gifted psychic on Tuesday.

There’s a space between Monday and Tuesday that could last for several years. It’s what you do during the psychic development that will determine the quality of experience you have.

These are not hard and fast rules, but just things that I have noticed.

If you enjoy being spooked, then pursuing a course of psychic development is not for you. If you have an adventurous streak in you, go for it. If you are superstitious, don’t go for it. If you can accept responsibility easily, go for it. If you are more comfortable blaming everybody else for your problems, don’t go for it.

Mostly, what I am describing is a mature person as someone who would be a good candidate to pursue their own psychic development. People up into their mid twenties do not fall into a good category of psychic student. They just don’t. If you’re an old fart like I am I’m more than happy to help you along. If all you want to know is when you are going to get married or who your boy friend is sleeping with I don’t want to talk to you.

Anyway, once you’ve moved through this rather blunt culling of whether you think you’d be a likely person to develop their psychic abilities you can focus in on any or all of the following things during this transition:

Learn to focus your concentration. Meditation really helps with this.

Begin remembering your dreams. Begin recording these dreams.

Learn to do your own psychological fine tuning. You will be overwhelmed with opportunities for real psychological and emotional growth during this process. It’s almost a required thing. Doing things the way you’ve been doing them up to now won’t work as well. Just letting things meander along year in and year out isn’t good enough anymore. You can accept the responsibility to take care of yourself emotionally and psychologically which means either start reading self help books or hire a therapist for awhile to help you understand.

See if you are drawn to using a tool of divination. Runes or Tarot are good. Learn what the meanings of the stones or of the cards are. Do some homework. Exercise those brain muscles. And, do readings on yourself. On yourself. On yourself. After a long time do readings for other people, but in the beginning? On yourself.

Start a personal journal to record your feelings during this time of transition. This is going to help, too, with the psychological and emotional growth you will experience.

If you are drinking too much or if you are doing drugs you can stop. Right now. Substance abuse only makes for a really strange and odd psychic.

There appears to be a lot of activity in the lower astral realms. This is drama. This is excitement. This is not for the inexperienced. This is only going to interfere with your good psychic development. After you’re good at it you can dabble there, but for now aim for the highest level you can. You can safely move toward your own Guide. Everybody has several. Stay focused on the one guide. This first year while you’re talking to Folk in Spirit talk to your Guide.

Read about other psychics and guides: Sylvia Browne, John Edward, Findhorn, Messages from Michael, the Seth books. You’ll come upon more of them.

Begin to trust in the universe. You’ll know what moves to make when it is appropriate for you to make those moves. Somebody or some book will come your way. There isn’t one path here. There are many you can take. And, they all lead to the same place if your aim is true.

Trust is a word with implications beyond those initially assumed. To move beyond one's own assumptions requires that one become aware of what one does and why. To slowly peel away the layers of delusion can be shocking yet is life-transforming. To acknowledge what is happening is part of the process of dissolving misplaced fear. No book or recipe prepares a person to embrace uncertainty. This is a reminder to uncover the courage hiding inside the deepest self. It awaits.
