Increasing Psychic Abilities Through
by Jeffry R. Palmer
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 apparent.
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
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 easily.
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
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
