Take a psychic abilities test and find out how in tune your psychic abilities are and what type of psychic ability you may have. Many people possess psychic powers but are unaware of it. Included here are several articles to help you with your psychic development. Many techniques and exercises are available to you such as meditation, journaling and chakra alignment. Aura sensing is also an important component of developing psychic abilities.
As you find out more about what the different abilities are and how you can strengthen your own, remember that the first step is honing in on your own intuition.
INTUITION — THE FIRST STEP
Intuition is part of the sixth sense and everybody has it. It is an awareness of a fact or reality that is not related to any usual reasoning power or logical assumption. It is an insight about events that may or may not take place. It surpasses logic and is more than an educated guess. Intuition is your internal communication system and is on call at any moment.
It is acquired through past experiences, current events and a natural instinct. Somehow all of this information is bundled and stored in our gut.
On your journey toward psychic development, it is important to understand and practice the technique of psychic protection, or psychic shielding. Whether or not you are psychic, you can use these methods to protect yourself from harboring another person’s negative emotions, either from the physical or spirit worlds.
Your mind and body are great receivers. Sensitivity to stimuli around you triggers gut feelings on an emotional level. Although you cannot avoid all of your emotional responses, you can protect yourself from many of the unwanted ones. These negative feelings may not have come from within you; they may have come from an outside source.
CHAKRA ALIGNMENT MEDITATION
You can develop psychic abilities through meditation. Meditation allows you to clear your mind and focus on your goals. It is important to continually practice meditating. Once you recognize that you have a keen intuition, you will want to fine-tune it. Psychic development is simply to take your intuitive abilities to the next level. Clearing your mind of unwanted thoughts and focusing on what your intuition is telling you is the key to opening the door to answers.
The best meditation for this is one that focuses on the body’s seven major chakras. Please visit Psychic Library’s Chakra Room to view the interactive chart and descriptions before beginning the meditation. This will give you a better understanding of its visualizations.
At one time or another, you have sensed someone’s aura. This is often referred to as the “vibes,” or vibrations you get from a person. Aura sensing is demonstrated in children between the ages of four and six. For example, when drawing family members, some children use a specific color for each person. They do so because they sense the human aura, although they do not consciously realize it. Parents and teachers often question them about why they have chosen these specific colors. Believing that there might be something wrong about drawing this way because of all the questioning, the children eventually stop. As they continue to mature, the ability fades as logic gets in the way of psychic abilities.
Clairaudience, which means clear hearing, is the ability to perceive sounds or words from outside sources in the spirit world. Psychics who are clairaudient hear voices, sounds or music that are not audible to the normal ear. They receive these messages mentally or within their ears. Most often, psychics have this ability in tandem with clairvoyance.
As with clairvoyance, many people have this ability without consciously realizing it. It is similar to that of someone repeating prior conversations or phrases from the past within his own mind. In some cases, the conversations are actually audible in their physical ears.
Clairsentience, which means clear sensing, is the ability to feel the present, past or future physical and emotional states of others, without the use of the normal five senses. Psychics who are clairsentient are able to retrieve information from houses, public buildings and outside areas. It is also one of the abilities used in aura sensing and psychometry.
Many people have this ability without consciously realizing it. They are the individuals who talk about getting a gut feeling, good or bad, when looking to purchase a home or just entering a building. They might pass an internal judgment of an individual when they meet.
The term clairvoyance, or clear seeing, originated from the French words clair (clear) and voir (to see). It is the ability to see events from the future, present and past within the mind’s eye. Clairvoyance differs from telepathy, which is one of several other psychic powers. Telepathy is a conscious, direct sending of information from one individual to another, without the use of the five senses. Clairvoyance is the knowledge of past, present or future events that is gained without direct conscious thought.
Psychometry is also known as psychometrics or token-object reading. The term psychometry is derived from the Greek words ‘psyche’ meaning soul and ‘metron’ meaning measure. It was named for the science invented by American physician and professor of physiology, Joseph Rhodes Buchanan in the 1840s. During a psychometry reading, a psychic is able to pick up impressions, visions, thoughts or events relating to someone just by holding an object, piece of jewelry, photograph or letter belonging to that person.
Telepathy, a form of extrasensory perception (ESP), is the direct communication between two living beings on a level that is void of written or verbal communication or the use of the five senses. One is considered the “sender” or “transmitter,” and the other is the “receiver.” Telepathy is not limited to humans. It occurs between animals and between humans and animals.
The term telepathy was coined in 1882, by Fredric W. H. Myers, one of the founders of the Society for Psychical Research. The science of parapsychology, which is the study of psi, divides telepathy into three different types.
