Although in writing I often refer to psychic abilities as “gifts” in truth, it is something that everyone possesses. Albeit, some seem to be born with more a knack for the ability while others have to work a little harder. A lot of it depends on whether you consider yourself an “external” or “internal” person. Externals tend to love the hustle and bustle of people, places, parties, and conversation. While internals are more content to spend a quiet evening at home, sit by a body of water and daydream or lose themselves in a good book. Most of us are a combination of external and internal. Dependent upon our mood we love both.
There are, of course, thousands of books that can be read on increasing your intuitive and/or psychic abilities. All of these may have some value, but remember that we are all individuals and what works for one may not work for others. I believe in keeping it simple. The only thing you truly need is time, place and open mind.
The three basics to opening your mind to your own abilities are 1) quiet 2) relaxation and 3) visualization. I discussed visualization in an earlier blog. If you haven’t read it you might want to check it out. Below are two simple exercises to try. Remember the more you practice the better results you will achieve.
1) First, buy a good pair of ear plugs that are comfortable. Now pick a room in your home that you’re familiar with and comfortable in. A room with good vibes. Before starting decide how long you want to work, and make sure you turn off all your phones, and that you have that amount of time without the fear of interruption. When you’re reading stand in the middle of the room, put in your ear plugs and close your eyes. Take several deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Feel all tension, anxiety and negativity flow from the top of your head out through the tips of your toes. When you’re relaxed, keeping your eyes closed look straight ahead. Open your mind and see what’s directly in front of you. You know this room. You may get images, or just a sensing of what is there. Now do the same to the left and the right. Now, reach out with your mind and look behind you. Not specific areas such as windows, doors, lamps, chairs. At first this may feel a little weird as the lack of sound, and outer stimuli allows you to truly open your mind, seeing, feeling and sensing with just your mind.
Practice this moving from room to room, and when you’re comfortable, stand in one room and mentally walk through your entire home. Take it one step further. Go outside your home. Look at the front door.
2) Now that you’ve practiced and you’re comfortable moving around with your mind, take it to the next level. The next time you’re getting ready for a trip to the store, or some place you travel all the time do this exercise, only this time travel the road to where you’re going. See the highway, passing scenery. Note any cars you may pass. The color of stop lights. When you’ve finished the entire route, open your eyes and take your trip. How close was your mental vision to the real trip? You may be surprised that in time your mental trip will be almost identical to your actual trip, right down to the cars that pass you and color of stop lights.
These are just two simple exercises you can use to begin your journey in opening your mind to its full potential. For paranormal investigators the room scans, or remote viewing like the car trip can be very helpful in setting up your investigation.
Have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Have a great night, and remember – If the mind can perceive it, the heart can believe it then you can achieve it.
