Awakening One’s Psychic Abilities
Perhaps, one way or another, we’ve heard of that story about someone who possesses supernatural powers. Able to predict the future, they write documents and proofs that serve as anomalous readings about what will happen next. And whether we like it or not, some do actually have this ability.
For instance, the famous Nostradamus serves as a well-known example of this. As he writes about his prophecies, it turns out that one happens after another, with rationalists being unable to explain how this can happen. After all, who would have thought that this is possible?
With that, this points only to one explanation – the existence of supernatural abilities. Despite being unable to explain them, the presence of psychic abilities often tells us that there exists beyond the tangible and the rational.
Instead of exclusively understanding the world from the lens of the sciences, giving enough credit for these transcendental experiences will allow us to gain a new perspective. By not being limited to earthly desires and knowledge, we open ourselves to things that are beyond us.
Thus, join us on this journey as you unravel a new aspect of yourself! By seeing how you can possibly use your mind to impact your reality, you’ll gain a unique ability, which will help you in numerous ways.
As such, in this E-book, we’ll be thoroughly discussing the 5 basic types of psychic abilities and 8 proven ways to harness them. By reading through, you’ll be able to understand what they are, on top of gaining practical knowledge on how to execute them.
What are Psychic Abilities?
Generally speaking, psychic abilities are often non-tangible ways of impacting the world. Going beyond the sense of reason and common sense, man is able to connect with the higher powers of the universe and wield them.
If you think of cosmic energy, you can consider its basic form as universal and formless. Because it is such, it can become the life source of all that there is. Regardless of a being’s essence (which can be a stone, plant, human, etc.), this life force is the one that allows it to exist.
With that, psychic abilities are one way of harnessing this universal life force. By employing spiritual methods, one is able to transcend the material world and use paranormal means of actualizing this.
For instance, when one does telepathy, a rational and scientific method won’t be applicable. After all, would there be a way to measure this ability? Of course, we can never measure their strength. Unlike liquids or programs, this thing cannot be quantified or rationalized.
Even so, it doesn’t necessarily deny its existence. Because we are able to experience cases where one can forward these thoughts, people can never deny the truth that there indeed exists a way to do it.
With that, we’ll be moving on by discussing the 5 basic types of psychic abilities. Although there are a lot more that can be added to this list, we’ll focus on the 5 most common and fundamental ways of utilizing this cosmic energy.
Furthermore, this E-book will also continue by outlining 8 ways to awaken one’s psychic abilities. By doing so, you’ll gain access to a practical guide on how you can begin your baby steps in this journey.
Psychic Ability #1: Astral Projection
As one of the most commonly experienced forms of psychic ability, the astral projection has solid multicultural roots. Given that it is experienced universally amongst people who have a higher sense of spirituality, astral projection is something that is renowned as a type of psychic ability.
Basically, astral projection is the ability to separate the mind from the body. Given the presumption of the dichotomy between the brain and the body, some experts have testified that it is indeed possible to separate them.
By doing so, one can achieve things that he/she won’t usually be able to. For instance, astral projection allows a person to travel beyond the physical realm simply because they have shifted to their spiritual existence.
With that, individuals who are able to harness this ability can consciously manipulate their experiences. Unlike dreams where we are bound by the unconscious elements in it, astral projection gives us a fully operational conscious state.
As such, practitioners of this ability tell us that it is even possible to see their spirit/soul as it separates from the body during sleep. Like a ghost, that spirit is able to wander around and perceive things that they usually wouldn’t like energies and auras.
Given this, a lot of people seek to have a higher level of spirituality. By doing so, they will gain access to their own spiritual planes through astral projection itself.
Psychic Ability #2: Clairvoyance
Even if you’re not a fan of America’s Got Talent, the social media space would be enough to tell you about a pair of clairvoyants in their show. Able to perceive the immediate future of particular events, these tricksters present to us what’s commonly referred to as clairvoyance.
To begin with, clairvoyance stems from the French words clair meaning clear and voyance, which means vision. Defined as the ability to gain extrasensory information, this psychic ability is recognized by individuals despite the fact that the general masses are unable to explain such events.
With that, clairvoyance is often used to predict life events. By having this psychic ability, one can manipulate his/her destiny instead of being merely subject to it.
For instance, clairvoyance gives you the power to know if someone in the group is deliberately lying to you. Because you are able to conclude without proof, you don’t need to prepare traps in order to catch them doing it. Instead, you can simply avoid them, for you already know what they’re up to.
By having a peek into the near future, clairvoyance allows you to make better choices in life.
Psychic Ability #3: Intuition
Being the most basic among the bunch, intuition is a psychic ability that almost anyone can master. By using intuition, one is relying on his/her gut instead of actual proofs on something. As such, it gives the user the ability to assess things without the need for evidence.
In its purest form, intuition can be understood as a way of using a combination of one’s emotive and spiritual powers. By sharpening one’s intuition, the user can have a solid hunch about what’s to come.
For instance, this ability is commonly practiced by women, particularly mothers. Even in the absence of facts, a mother will be able to tell if their children are experiencing something wrong in school. All it takes are a combination of one’s feeling and some clues or hints.
These clues are often presented by the child. In this case, the child may appear bothered or uneasy. Even when they are deliberately hiding it, the mother will be able to see through, allowing her to engage in a series of verifications.
Similarly, intuition can also be pure. Without any hint at all, a mother will be able to have that feeling that’s accompanied by goosebumps. Generally, this happens as a vague hunch. By connecting to their spiritual self, intuition manifests through goosebumps or premonitions about themselves or others.
Psychic Ability #4: Precognition
Being a combination of both intuition and clairvoyance, precognition is the ability to predict future events. By tapping into one’s spiritual powers, the user can get a vivid picture of things that are yet to occur in their lives.
But unlike clairvoyance, which is usually short to middle distance of vision, precognition seeks to unravel the far future. For instance, this often happens in dreams that occur years before the actual event. In this case, one can foresee the death of a loved one or the future career of themselves and the like. Because they have the ability to predict the far future, precognition bears its own unique value.
With that, this psychic ability is advantageous in trying to determine one’s path. Given that each person has a different way that’s laid upon them by birth, a person who has the ability to predict one’s direction can give meaning to ones’ struggles.
While others remain confused and conflicted with what’s happening to them, the enlightened person can make sense of the situation. By being able to see how one event connects to the other, practitioners of this spiritual ability are sought for their higher levels of wisdom and thought.
Psychic Ability #5: Telepathy
Often seen in movies, this psychic ability is, perhaps, the most difficult to do. After all, who would believe that one has the power to telepathically communicate thoughts to another person?
In essence, the principle behind telepathy lies in paranormal levels of harnessing the power of the psyche. By being able to pass on ideas without uttering words or read one’s thoughts, telepathy is genuinely a subject of both wonder and mysticism.
Generally speaking, the most recognized mode of this psychic ability is dream telepathy. As one of the main topics in parapsychology, experiments were conducted to prove this ability to communicate through dreams. As images were relayed between the sender and the receiver during sleep, this psychic ability seemed to have crossed the limits of what can be known.
Another form of this is twin telepathy. Given that there is a uniquely strong resonance between twins, it has been theorized that they are the most likely subjects that can engage in mind communication. Thus, this often led to speculation and wonder, even among spiritual practitioners.
Whether or not telepathy can actually be achieved is something that remains a mystery. As such, you can treat it as one of the goals that you might eventually reach as you harness your spiritual abilities.
Given these 5 basic types of psychic abilities, the next question is: how do we actually achieve them? As such, we’ll be laying out 8 simple ways to awaken your psychic abilities. With that, you’ll have a definite starting point from which you can build on.
First Way: Constant Meditation
As the most basic form of spirituality, constant meditation is the first step to reconnect with yourself. Given that you are pouring almost all your energies and attention to the world, it is only reasonable for you to lose this innate connection between you and your perception of who you are.
Meaning, when we think of our conscious self, what we usually miss out on is the fact that we can be disconnected from it. Assuming that all the choices we make are ours, we forget that there can be a gap between who we are and who we perceive ourselves to be.
As such, meditation is often the best technique to bridge this gap. Given that it employs an active way of reassessing one’s thoughts, meditation can bring into light the subconscious or unconscious ideas that you may have.
By giving yourself some time to pause and reflect, you’ll be able to examine your idle thoughts and what they are trying to communicate to you. Following this course, it becomes easier for you to assess which ones to keep and the ones to reject. Thus, it becomes the first step to awaken your psychic abilities as it exercises the psyche itself.
Second Way: Sharpening your Gut
Though seemingly obvious, sharpening your gut is one of the more proven ways of increasing your psychic abilities. By continually training how to assess your gut thoughts, you’ll be more familiar with specific actions and instances which signal you to engage or back out.
For instance, when meeting someone new, you’ll always have a gut feeling about them. Whether positive or negative, this gut feel will give you a good sense of intuition whether or not it is right for you to engage with them. As such, this idea often leads you to have a favorable or unfavorable initial meeting.
Regardless of the result, the point that you should take note of here is the fact that you can slowly build your intuition. By paying attention to red or green flags, you can maneuver beyond the flowery words that a person may feed you. Because your gut cannot be reasoned with, it is also something that is not corrupted by reason itself.
Furthermore, sharpening your gut is your first step towards intuition. As you practice this skill, you’ll get better over time. As such, what you can do is to write your gut feelings and thoughts about something as they arise, and record how much of them turn out to be true.
Third Way: Dream Journaling
With the 5 types of psychic abilities, we’ve learned that dreams are the most common platform where one can engage freely with his/her spiritual nature. After all, during dreams, we are transferred to a different plane, one that goes beyond our physical reality.
As such, precognition, telepathy, astral projection, and even clairvoyance can manifest in one’s dreams. For instance, dreaming of certain symbols can signify the impending death of a family member or the upcoming romance in your life. While you may be unaware of it, such is already a form of the psychic ability itself.
However, most of us fail to realize this. Instead, what they do is to simply brush it off and think that it’s just another dream. But by doing dream journaling, you can change this.
Using this technique, you will be able to systematically record the events in your dreams. Most notably with what Carl Jung refers to as big ideas, these images can contain something in themselves that is essential in moving forward with one’s psychic abilities.
By taking note of them, you can actively track your dreams, which means that you now have more control instead of seeing them as random and isolated.
Fourth Way: Identifying your Spirit Guide
In attempting to harness your psychic abilities, identifying your spirit guide is another critical element that you can do. Following the roots of shamanism, some spiritual practitioners believe that we all have spirit guides. As such, they often appear to us in dreams and in forms of animals.
With that, different animals have various meanings. Given your spiritual journey, these animals will guide you by showing you the way. After all, treading the spiritual planes of existence can be confusing and complicated in itself. Moreover, they also serve as your protectors. With harmful and malicious energies that can encroach your vulnerable spiritual self, the spirit guide will ensure that you are protected.
As such, they often accompany you on things like astral projection. Being a high level of psychic ability, astral projection can cause you to become corrupted by evil spirits. Just like in the stories where people are unable to return to their bodies, astral projection can be dangerous in itself.
But with the help of a spirit guide, you can ward them off. By carrying a token with you, the spirit guide becomes both physically and spiritually present, as they guard and guide your way.
Fifth Way: Healing Crystals
Containing the energies of the earth, healing crystals are also considered as active catalysts in attempting to manifest one’s psychic abilities. With its unique functions and low-frequency vibrations, each healing crystal contains energy which can unlock you. After all, these energies are created and stored in these crystals by mother nature itself.
For instance, the crystal amethyst contains much spirituality and mysticism in it. Only by incorporating it in your daily meditation, this healing crystal can sort things out for you and bring you closer to your spiritual self.
Furthermore, you can also use other healing crystals that are directed to the throat and crown chakra. In this case, the crystal lapis lazuli unblocks your throat chakra. This means that your communicative skills will improve, allowing you to better connect with the universe. Similarly, the mystical moonstone can aid you in your dreams as it increases your emotional sensitivity.
With that, healing crystals are to be taken as enhancers for practicing your psychic abilities. By understanding the whole chakra system in conjunction with healing crystals, you’ll know how to meditate and adequately use these crystals to open your spiritual gates.
Sixth Way: Getting a Spiritual Mentor
Just as in all practices, having a mentor with you will improve your progress by tenfold. Compared to only doing your own thing, having a good mentor allows you to take only the correct steps. Especially when you are great at absorbing things like a sponge, the wisdom that your mentor has will be more than enough to propel your progress.
Similarly, developing your psychic abilities will be much easier if you have someone to tell you what to do. Because this whole exercise can be tricky and complicated in itself, paying attention to proper steps will ensure that you’ll learn the correct way to do it.
Because this whole thing can be tricky in itself, ensuring that you are learning from an experienced one will definitely be a big plus for you. Instead of taking unnecessary detours, your mentor will guide you properly on your journey.
After all, in developing your psychic abilities, you should note that this also exposes you to potentially unwanted elements. As you open your astral planes and access your higher spiritual self, negative energies might possibly take over.
However, with the help of a mentor, you’ll ensure that someone got your back.
Seventh Way: Spiritual Awakening
Developing your psychic abilities is strongly intertwined with spiritual awakening. As your first significant step, spiritual awakening opens up your higher self. But how does it happen?
Before you know it, spiritual awakening can occur in the simplest of ways. For instance, the death of a loved one can trigger you to question the meaning of life or if there is life after death. While seemingly paradoxical, these questions point to realities that go beyond our reach, something that spiritual awakening seeks to unlock.
Moving forward, you’ll have a variety of supernatural experiences. Just like the ones mentioned here, you might get premonitions, stronger intuitions, or even experience unintended astral projections during sleep.
In general, it will bring you to an unexplainable sense of the universe. Being able to feel its energy and yet unable to explain it, such cosmic powers will run through you.
With that, fret not for these things is natural when experiencing a spiritual awakening. As long as you are able to recognize them, these things will actually help you in your journey onwards, as they become opportunities for growth.
Eighth Way: Reconnect with Nature
As our life-giver, nature provides us with everything that we need. Whether it is our food, shelter, or even energy, we rely on almost anything to mother nature itself.
However, the development of industrialization only furthered this gap between man and nature. With buildings that block our path and surround us with concrete, it is quite challenging to reconnect with the trees and the wind.
Furthermore, our social media world contributed to this gap. Consumed by the allure of consumerism and online vanity, the difference that this development bridged only brought us farther from the serenity of the ocean.
With that, it takes a thorough reassessment on how disconnected we are from nature. Whether we like it or not, life itself is a spiritual energy source that can aid us in developing psychic abilities.
By reconnecting with nature, we will be able to tap on this energy. Such will bring a renewed sense of self.
Awakening your psychic abilities is never an easy task. As such, even this E- book can only do so much in helping you by enlightening you about ideas or concepts that can help bolster your progress.
With that, we’d like to leave you a few pointers to take note of on this journey.
First, you have to be specific on the kind of psychic ability that you want to develop. Given the many options that you can do, paying attention to one skill at a time will ensure steady progress for you. This is crucial since beginners usually try out everything and end up achieving nothing. By not repeating this mistake, you’ll have better odds of being able to harness the ability that you want.
Second, in choosing your psychic ability, make sure that you’ve selected the best method that’s fit for it. For instance, the easiest to develop here is the power of intuition. Because we already have that grounding of gut feeling, intuition is simply a higher form of it. With that, you should ask yourself: which of the methods mentioned will best help me in my progress? By giving a clear cut answer for this, it will be easier for you to perfect this ability.
Third, fill your subconscious with it. Learning and harnessing psychic abilities is undoubtedly no easy task. It surely will take a lot of commitment on your part. Far from being a simple stroll in the park, harnessing these abilities requires you to know more about your spiritual self. With that, the way to go is to commit to it by filling your subconscious thoughts of this desire. In this
way, even your unconscious thoughts will contribute to your overall development.
With these final three tips, we hope that this E-book will become a good take-off point for you. As you take these tips and turn them into action, you’ll be able to harness the power of your mind in no time!
