Psychic powers? What are they and what do they mean to most of you?
This phrase is used by society to describe a group of abilities or powers that are of a psychic nature.
Many of you may wonder, is it possible to develop psychic gifts?
Perhaps you may feel you have already developed some of these gifts and want to fine tune them.
The use of specific psychic crystals have the ability to stimulate psychic expertise.
This may include the work of clairvoyants, mediums and psychic healers.
Meditation is extremely important if you want to develop any of these abilities. Adding crystals into your meditation can be powerful.
There is also a link between spirituality and genuine psychics and their use of their abilities.
Many psychic abilities are very similar, and how a person describes their individual gifts is their choice.
So what do we mean by psychic powers? And how difficult is it to develop these gifts?
This term sums up a group of different abilities or powers that we can acquire and use to help ourselves live better lives and help others.
Many people are not aware that it is possible to develop some of these powers.
There are many gifted 'psychics' who do this on stage, and there is often a blurring of the lines between these gifts.
Classes to develop a range of these gifts are held in many areas, and many psychic clairvoyants and spiritual mediums have developed their gifts at these classes.
There are now many spiritual churches around the world, and these churches often run classes to assist people to develop these gifts especially clairvoyance and psychometry.
The word 'church' may be misunderstood by some, as these are not exactly like mainstream churches, as their main role is to prove that the human spirit continues after the death of the physical body.
If you are able to develop these gifts they can be used to make contact with spirit.
As you make regular contact with spirit you will find that your abilities begin to strengthen.
You may begin to make regular contact with your spirit guides, guardian angels or other members of the angelic realms or your higher self.
If you have a problem you may ask your guides for assistance to help you to solve it.
Once you connect with spirit guides you may find that your life starts to go in a new direction and things begin to improve for you especially if you listen to their guidance.
Depending on the variety of the gift, you may hear or sense words being spoken, known as clairaudience or psychic hearing.
Some people see a picture of some sort, known as psychic visions or clairvoyance.
Others sense something about an object while touching it, which is known as psychometry or clairsentience.
Or you may simply have a strong knowing about something which is commonly known as psychic knowing.
Doing a psychic meditation is effective to aid the development of psychic gifts, because it works by changing your brain waves.
With many people one of the psychic powers are more important to them, or more dominant than any of the others.
If you feel that this is the case, this may be your intuition at work, alerting you, telling you which direction to take to learn how to be psychic.
Once you start doing meditation, with a purpose of developing your gifts, one psychic gift in particular may begin to come to your attention.
You may be taking certain actions to develop one gift, and another will start to become apparent in your life.
specific areas of the brain, the Amygdala and the Anterior Cingulate
Cortex are said to be connected with developing these abilities.
By using Isochronic Tones, you may stimulate these areas of the brain, and you may find that your gifts develop more quickly and more easily.
Working with intuition may aid you overall to develop your psychic powers further.
Once you begin to work with your crystals regularly, you will begin the process of developing your intuition.
Although intuition is well known it is also a psychic power, and as most of us have it you can see psychic powers are not that unusual.
Overall spiritual development will bring to the fore any psychic gifts, and your specific communication using your psychic abilities that are developing.
I have attended classes myself to assist with the development of clairvoyance, clairsentience and other psychic gifts.
This does seem to be a class that is commonly available.
There are some less well known psychic gifts, and it is possible for any gifts to spontaneously heighten once you start to work with spirit.
As you develop one gift, many of the others will begin to heighten and with use will strengthen.
If possible it is strongly recommended to always have one or
two of the protective stones on your body, in addition to any stones
that you have chosen to help the work you wish to do.
Psychic protection is very important, so for your own protection whenever you begin development work, ensure that you keep one of the protection crystals on you or close by.
Black Tourmaline is a crystal that provides both protection and grounding, and is a strong earth star chakra stone
But there are also other excellent protective stones that you can choose.
There are quite a few strong crystals used for psychic protection that you may want to use, including a few of my favorites.
If you wish to prevent psychic attack or if you are already feeling that you are under attack there are a number of stones that can help you.
Use stones such as Fire Agate, Cookeite, Bowenite, also known as Maori Greenstone, Pyrolusite or Kimberlite to create a barrier around you.
Using psychic protection stones such as Sugilite, Amber, Malachite, Shattuckite, Black Obsidian, Chiastolite aka the Cross Stone, Smokey Quartz and the lovely Purple Amethyst Crystals may be beneficial.
It is easy to get ungrounded when doing spiritual or psychic development work, so it is also important to ensure you do regular spiritual grounding.
Do you know what it means to be ungrounded and how it might affect you?Check out the symptoms here, to discover if you are ungrounded.
This article on grounding gives you ideas to mitigate any related issues you be experiencing.
It is valuable to learn about it now, so you know what is happening in case it does.
To develop psychic powers there are a range of crystals that you might choose to use.
It is advantageous to read about individual stones before you get started with any particular stone.
There are crystals that will stimulate the development of specific gifts.
So think about what you wish to achieve, as there are a range of psychic crystals you might choose to use, including a good number to aid the development of psychic visions or clairvoyant ability.
Some stones will help the development of a number of abilities, while others are specific to developing just one gift.
So it may help you to read pages about the individual talents you can work on, and which stones will help to stimulate the faculty you would like to be more dominant.
Also note that third eye crystals also may help to encourage hidden potential, and many of these are found on the pages about specific psychic gifts.
Frequent meditation is one of the most powerful activities that you can use to develop many of these gifts, and this may also help you to connect with your spirit guide.
Using natural crystals during meditation will aid your development, if you choose this path.
The choice of crystals to use will depend to a large degree on exactly which gifts you wish to develop.
Any of the third eye chakra crystals will benefit you, as well as the crown chakra and soul star chakra crystals.
Stones that stimulate any of these chakras will be advantageous for your psychic and spiritual growth.
The area that encompasses your throat chakra and the chakras above it, is where many gifts or psychic abilities originate.
Many of the throat chakra stones may create a deeper level of psychic communication, so this can also be beneficial.
The sixth, seventh and eighth chakra crystals may aid you to increase your vibration.
As the vibration of your body increases this will be a positive outcome for your spirituality and health.
The increase in improved vibrations will enhance your life in many ways, as they are able to help you overall to become more happy and healthy.
Daily meditation using the Seven Laws of Attraction has a strong ability to bring you what you desire, and may also help you with working with your spirit guide.
It is up to you to make the choice about exactly what it is that you want to happen, in advance, to assist in its manifestation.
Gifts such as automatic writing also known as written channeling, clairsentience or psychometry, intuition and psychic knowing are also becoming more common.
The most well known of the psychic powers are clairvoyance which includes psychic visions or second sight and clairaudience or psychic hearing.
Finding your spirit guide will help the process to move along more quickly.
Gifts you may develop includes mediumship, mental telepathy, premonitions, precognition or prophecy and telling the future, as well as extra sensory perception, which are all well known.
If you combine your meditation with the use of specific crystals to aid you, you can develop the gift of mental telepathy.
Being able to communicate telepathically with those you are close to can be very beneficial in your day to day life.
Psychic Powers will impact your spiritual life for the better. Once they begin to develop how you use them is entirely up to you.
These are quite a few paths those with psychic abilities choose to go in.
You may find that you sense what action to take in all sorts of areas of your life. Even as far as simply deciding to go a different way to avoid a traffic problem.
Those whose gifts become extremely strong may decide to work with the public. Those with genuine gifts, including psychic clairvoyants are in demand.
There are many avenues for psychic employment for those of you who are able to use these gifts.
If you work in a natural or alchemical healing modality, these gifts will assist you to decide what action to take during a healing.
Or you may find that your psychic abilities lead you towards having a calling to do readings for the public. Follow your instincts and intuition in this regard.
If you find that you hear voices in your head on a regular and continuous basis this may be a symptom of a medical condition.
So if you have any concerns please make sure that you take advice from your medical advisor.
If you choose to develop your psychic powers be aware that it may change your life dramatically.
But it is possible that your gifts may simply allow you to have an elevated awareness of the world around you.
Make the choice to have a better life, and it may happen. How your life unfolds will be decided by you, in combination with Spirit and your higher self.
