If you are looking to develop your psychic skills (and yes, you ARE psychic) then there are a few steps that you need to follow in order to bring those skills out of the storage areas of your mind where they have been hiding out all these years, and into the real world. So before we get into the nuts and bolts of the various psychic abilities that are out there, it will help to have an idea of what will be required of you in order to discover your psychic abilities and put them into practice.
Step #1: Belief in Psychic Abilities. As you might imagine, it is not easy to practice something that you don’t believe in. If you are just looking to disprove psychic abilities – if you don’t really believe that they exist – then chances are that you won’t be able to actually tap into your psychic abilities, for the most basic premise of developing your psychic skills is that you actually believe that they are real.
Step #2: Knowledge of Psychic Abilities. Knowledge of the different kinds of psychic abilities that have been demonstrated over the millennia is very helpful when you are looking to develop your own talents. In fact, the more you learn about the different kinds of psychic abilities that have been recorded throughout history, the more likely you are to discover one or more abilities that you’ve been actively practicing without even being aware of it. While there are hundreds of books available on psychic abilities and techniques for practicing them, and while the internet is a valuable tool for researching these various abilities, investing in a comprehensive encyclopedia of psychic skills and terminology can help you tremendously.
Step #3: Know Yourself. All the knowledge of the various psychic abilities out there does you absolutely no good if you don’t know your own strengths and weaknesses. Paying attention to what comes naturally to you – and what you have difficulties with – is a key part of discovering your own psychic abilities and in developing new talents and skills. In fact, the ability to master mindfulness – to be able to see things clearly, exactly the way they are (without embellishing or judging) can help you learn more about yourself. In fact, you may discover things about yourself that you were not previously aware of.
Step #4: Practice Makes Perfect. Very few talents or skills come so naturally that you can do them with no training or practice whatsoever. Being psychic may be something that you were born with, but like an inborn musical ability or a natural gift for storytelling, the more you focus on your skills; the more you practice your music; the more times you tell your stories; the better you get. The same holds true for psychic development. In fact, you can compare your psychic abilities to a muscle. If you exercise your muscle it grows. It becomes stronger and larger. If you do not exercise your muscle tends to get weaker and even atrophy until there is next to nothing left. If you can, set aside a time every day where you work on your skills and exercise those abilities that you already have. Not only does practicing your psychic skills improve your abilities, as you get better you will find new windows of opportunities – new skills and abilities opening up to you.
Step #5: Be Patient With Yourself. Yes, it is true that everyone is born with psychic abilities, but just as a musician or a cabinet maker may have “off” days, not every day is going to be dead on for your psychic skills and abilities. This is where knowing yourself and your abilities definitely come in handy. The better you know yourself and what you are capable of, the more you will understand when your skills are “in tune” and when it would probably be better if you curled up with a cup of hot chocolate and a good novel.
Putting it All Together
Developing your psychic abilities is not something that you will learn overnight. Yes, you will make amazing discoveries about your own skills, but you will also suffer disappointments, for not everything that you attempt; not every type of psychic ability that is listed will be something that you are personally good at. But by following these five steps you will find yourself well on your way to discovering and building on your own psychic skills.
