Psychic communication is all about communicating with spirit. How do you communicate with spirit and how do you work out what your best method is?
By taking the time to develop your gifts you will make the process happen more smoothly. In your day to day life you all have ways of communicating.
Most people know that it is easier and better to communicate in some ways than in others. There is a whole science around methods of communication, and most of you will know how best you communicate.
Do you understand something better if you see it (visual), touch it (kinesthetic), hear it (auditory) or do you just know things (intuitive or psychic knowing.)
As you develop your psychic power, your communication methods will be refined, and you will gain confidence and clarity in the best method for you personally to use.
So how do you know, what your predominant psychic gift is?
Psychic communication may work in a variety of ways. Many of you would have seen and heard about mediums, those individuals that are able to contact the spirit world one to one.
This is often to contact someone's loved one who is no longer here on the earth plane. It can even be the other way, in that spirits use the abilities of the medium to make contact with those here.
The first thing to do is to ask for help, and you do this by asking your guides to communicate with you.
Doing a specific meditation to develop psychic gifts is one of the best ways to begin to develop your specific gift of psychic communication.
Once you tune into your guides, using the method that is best for you, you will start the process moving more quickly.
If you are not sure what to do, they will help you via some gentle spiritual nudging to find the path you need to be on. Maybe that's why you are reading this page?
The chakras from the throat chakra up govern psychic communication. All of the chakras have particular crystals that aid you to work better with the gifts that are governed by the vibration of that chakra.
The throat chakra is our main chakra that is to do with communication generally, but many of the psychic gifts are governed by the pineal gland or third eye.
To help you to develop psychic abilities and to aid all of the higher chakras, Purple Amethyst Crystals are a powerful aid to the process.
The third eye has been known about throughout history as the place where people knew that the "second sight" seemed to be coming from. Crystals that stimulate this area are very popular.
Above the third eye chakra, is the seventh chakra, which is the highest chakra of the physical body, and is known as the crown chakra as that is where it is located.
It links us up to the transpersonal chakras and to the eighth or soul star chakra.
The role of particular crystals in the process is worth considering as using them can be a great help. Meditation with specific crystals will aid you to develop your psychic gifts.
It is also beneficial to keep some of the following stones within your aura for as long as possible each day. One easy way to do this is to wear a pendant or other crystal jewelry.
Take a look at the stones on the following list, as there are some beautiful crystals that you might choose to wear. One good example is to wear Rainbow Moonstone jewelry, as it is helpful to stimulate these gifts.
Psychic communication works by the user tuning in, via their specific gift, to the spirit world.
Every one of us has the ability to communicate with spirit, it may just be that you haven't actually made contact with spirit yet.
First find your spirit guide, then you may begin regular communication, even in the simplest ways and you have begun the process. Your guides will help you once they are asked to do so, by you.
You do need to ask for their help and then you will get it. It is really that simple, and starts with making contact with your spirit guide.
Asking for help may be the beginning, as this can lead you to getting the answers on where and how you may develop your specific method of psychic communication.
These days there are many places you can learn what your specific psychic power is and how to awaken it and use it.
Once you begin developing psychic abilities your gifts may head in different directions, and you may even have more than one gift for psychic communication.
Be open and follow the path of coincidence and synchronicity as it is called, to help you to discover how to be psychic. This will help you to develop the psychic power specific to your gifts.
Daily meditation is one of the best methods to relieve stress. Doing it daily, even for five to ten minutes, is highly beneficial to relieve anxiety as you will feel much calmer after a session of meditation.
During meditation, if you hold a specific crystal in your hand that aids psychic development, the process may happen more quickly.
You might like to hold a piece of one of the stones that are blue, as many of these stones are very helpful to aid communication.
Or you may choose to use one of the third eye chakra stones is a very effective way to help the process along. Some crystals are both third eye and throat chakra stones. One crystal that is highly effective is the lovely blue Lapis Lazuli Stones, shown below.
Meditation will help you, even if you are not looking to develop any psychic gifts.
If you are not sure how to meditate, I have an article that gives you a easy ideas and techniques about how to get started with meditation.
The process of going within is simple, yet many books attempt to make it seem more complex than it is.
Close you eyes and simply allow your thoughts to be still. This gets easier every time you do it, until after a while it is becomes second nature.
By doing meditation each day, even for a short time, you can begin to develop the psychic power that is specific to you.
During meditation your brain waves should slow, as ideally their rhythm changes from the beta wave of normal day to day activities to the slower alpha wave.
Two specific areas of the brain, the Amygdala and the Anterior Cingulate Cortex are said to be related to developing any psychic gifts and your intuition.
Using isochronic tones is effective to aid you to be able to meditate better, especially if you have had trouble quieting your mind and stopping the mind chatter.
In addition it aids the development of psychic gifts, because it works by encouraging these areas of the brain to entrain with the new rhythms that are introduced by these tones.
As your mind chatter stops, and you go deeper into the meditative state, you may find that these gifts develop more easily.
Many of the spiritual churches hold psychic development classes, and as well many mediums are also teaching their ideas to others in privately run classes.
These classes, commonly called development circles, are usually aimed at developing all psychic abilities. They will help you to learn to interpret the psychic communication and aid you to understand what may be happening.
One of the major motivations of teaching you these things, is that they wish to assist the ordinary person to understand how mediumship works.
They aid you to see that it is possible to communicate with the dead, known as mediumship, to contact those who have passed over. Many talented clairvoyants come from within these teaching circles.
Many later go on to do some sort of psychic employment, such as becoming clairvoyants or tarot readers. The use of crystals to enhance tarot reading is becoming more common as well.
The lovely lavender or blue Iolite crystals are well known for their action to help you to develop psychic gifts, and in particular aid you to experience psychic visions, also called clairvoyance.
When you sit down to meditate, hold this or one of the one of the other crystals mentioned in this article, in your hand.
While you are in meditation, you may soon be aware of your specific type of psychic communication. And remember the power and energy of gratitude.
By asking for help from your guides, and by being grateful for the help they give, you will begin to move forward in your development of your gifts.
As you sit in silence and get deeper and deeper, you may begin to have strong feeling about a specific thing, when you simply know that this is true.
You may then know that this is the gift of psychic knowing or perhaps you are stimulating your intuition to work better, as these two gifts are quite similar.
Psychic knowing is a psychic gift that is closely related to automatic writing, which can be developed by doing daily journaling.
If you wish to develop this gift and allow yourself to receive written communication directly from spirit, you may choose to write in a journal every day.
Using Blue Angelite crystals like the piece of natural stone shown on the right, will also be beneficial to aid you to boost these gifts.
If you begin to develop your intuition, this is very similar, but is more likely to be a hunch that something is going to happen.
These gifts often come together, but intuition often comes via the solar plexus, and is known as having a gut feeling, and is also related to clairsentience.
You may see a picture in front of you, like it is on a TV screen in your head. This is how clairvoyance or psychic visions can begin.
If you hear sounds like your ears ringing or like the soft sound of bees humming, this may in some cases be a sign that you are developing the gift of clairaudience.
A strong feeling in your gut about something, indicates that you may have the gift of clairsentience, also known as clear feeling.
Lastly you may touch something and get a sudden feeling about the owner of the object, which is called psychometry. Psychometry is a gift that is closely linked to the gift of clairsentience.
When you are utilizing of the above gifts, you may get messages related to future events including see visions of the future. Clairvoyance or psychic visions or clairaudience may therefore be related to the gifts of prophecy, precognition or future telling.
These are the main gifts and many of you may have a combination of one two or three of these, although usually one is a lot more dominant than the others.
The stones on this page are a list of some of the specific crystals that are powerful to develop psychic communication gifts.
Start by using any of the stones, known as psychic crystals, that are listed below. Many of these stones are high crystal energy stones with a high vibration, that have a strong action to aid you to develop psychic gifts.
Although any of the chakra stones for the throat chakra, the third eye chakra, the crown chakra and the soul star chakra will help you. It will depend on what gift develops first and is more dominant.
As you develop your gifts you may decide that one of your ways to communicate psychically is becoming more dominant than the other abilities.
At that time you may decide to concentrate on developing that psychic gift or power.
Once you open to spirit it is possible that negative entities may attempt to make contact with you, so keep crystals for psychic protection on you, as this is highly beneficial.
There are quite a few stones that will work for both protection and grounding, and some of these also boost specific psychic gifts.
Take care that you continue to regularly do spiritual grounding meditations as well, and carry some grounding stones on you.
This is especially valuable if you feel that you are becoming ungrounded. If you are not sure check out my article on the subject to discover... Are You Ungrounded?
Clear Apophyllite Crystals are another of the stones that will aid you to develop psychic gifts. Having these new psychic communication gifts may aid you to take your life in a new direction.
By making changes in your life, this may help you to find your purpose in life. As you follow this new path you may feel more contented, and happier generally within yourself.
Happy vibrations will flow through your life, and you may be filled with happiness on a regular basis.
As you start to regularly communicate with your spirit guides, they will help you. All you have to do is ask for this help. During your meditation sessions you may ask them to give you guidance.
If you have trouble quieting your mind to enter meditation, you might like to try using a guided meditation to help you to relax more easily or listen to meditation music.
Continue to meditate with crystals each day, a good way to combine meditation with using specific crystals.
As you develop your abilities, gifts or psychic powers as they are sometimes called, you will find it helps you within your life generally.
As you begin to be clear about your specific gift, augment it by using chakra stones for the specific chakra area that governs this ability.
