Understand And Develop Your Psychic Abilities

Psychic abilities like clairvoyance, clairaudience, seeing auras, precognition, psychometry, telepathy, channeling, spiritual healing, astral travel, out of body experiences are not the spiritual gifts of a select few.
Psychic abilities can be learned and developed by all.
Everyone perceives psychic information a bit differently. Here you will learn the main ways that your extrasensory perception and intuitive gifts may appear, along with how to further hone and develop your psychic gifts.

Clairaudience – Clear Hearing

When you psychically hear, the information you’re tuning into may appear to come from outside of you, like when you’re listening to someone else talk.
clairaudience
Psychically hearing however, is usually much more subtle, and may be easy to shrug off as your own inner voice.
You may also be able to hear your angels singing, tune into high-pitched tones, or frequency vibrations along with hearing guidance, insight, and even warnings.

Clairvoyance – Clear Seeing clairvoyance

Clairvoyance, or psychic seeing is one of the most commonly known psychic senses. However it is also greatly misunderstood.
Seeing psychically does not necessarily mean having dramatic psychic visions, or seeing dead people as illustrated in Hollywood movies and on TV.
Psychic sight is usually very subtle. You may receive information similarly, to how a memory plays in your mind. You also might see symbols, colors, or shapes that hint towards a deeper meaning.
Sometimes, clairvoyance does manifest as clear visions, as seeing angels, ghosts, or dreaming and getting a glimpse of the future.

Clairsentience – Clear Feeling

Clairsentience is the ability to tune into psychic information through feelings, emotions, and actual physical sensations.
Validation may come in the form of an overwhelming feeling of love or joy. A feeling of dread or just feeling uncomfortable on the other hand, may signal a warning, or a “No” response to a question.
You may also feel the presence of Spirit, your angels, loved ones in Heaven, or even lower vibrational entities.

Claircognizance – Clear Knowing

When you simply know something to be true, without any outside evidence or knowing why you know, you’re tuning into the psychic sense of claircognizance.
Claircogniance, or the inner sense of knowing can be tuned into to receive accurate and specific messages and guidance from the realms of spirit.
You may suddenly know the answer to a question, receive a download of information or just tune into clear insight and understanding into the past, present, or future surrounding a situation.
This psychic sense is sometimes called prophecy, when someone just knows profound and true Divine guidance without any proof or validation.

Clairalience – Clear Smelling

When you smell things outside of your normal physical sense of smell, you’re tuning into clairalience.
Common scents include perfume or smoke from a deceased loved one, the sweet floral scent of your angels, or a hopeful fragrance nudging you in the right direction.
In some cases, you may smell the rotten stench of a lie or the deception of a lower vibrational being.
Clairalience is a less commonly known psychic sense. It often appears in conjunction to another sense like seeing, feeling or knowing.

Clairgustance – Clear Tasting

An inner sense of taste not tied to anything you’ve smelled or eaten in the physical, is known as clairgustance.
Ever heard the expression “it left a bad taste in my mouth”? This is a wonderful example of clairgustance.
You may get a “bad taste in your mouth” as a warning to shift your thinking, as insight into a person or situation or as a warning that you’re headed down the wrong path. Other times a sweet taste will bring validation.
Deceased loved sometimes use this inner sense as a calling card, and way of identification. So if your grandmother loved chocolate cake, you may get the inner sense and taste of chocolate cake as a calling card that she’s with you. Or course, if you’re eating chocolate cake, it’s an entirely different reason!

How to Develop Psychic Abilities

Develop Psychic AbilitiesThrough these main psychic senses, spiritual gifts like intuition, psychometry, channeling, mediumship, telepathy, remote viewing, medical intuition, and more can be developed, honed, and experienced.
Everyone has the potential for psychic abilities but for many, these abilities and skills have been blocked out over the years by layers of density, thought, doubt, and limiting belief. The blessing in this, is that the ability has been there all along, and with intention and persistence, psychic abilities can be activated, developed, and awakened now.
Everyone has, and can develop their psychic ability.
In saying this however, I do not mean that everyone is meant to be a professional psychic or energy healer. If you’re not drawn at all to develop psychically, what are you drawn to learn and create?
To accomplish your life purpose you may be more suited to learn physical tangible skills, if so, go with this!
But even if you are meant to work within the more tangible, physical realms, by opening psychically you can enhance your other skills, clearly know your path, and open to experience the higher consciousness of your multidimensional self regardless of whether you ever use this ability to ‘read’ or ‘interpret’ psychic information about others.

If you are drawn to become a ‘psychic’ in all meanings of the word, there’s a reason for it… Here are ways to develop your psychic abilities now!

7 Tips to Develop Your Psychic Abilities

1. Meditation

Psychic Meditation
You’ve probably heard this before… But if you want to psychically develop, meditation really is key. When you train your mind to be still and calm through meditation, you’re able to allow higher information to flow through you. The simple truth is, you’re already receiving psychic information throughout your day, but if you’re not taking the time to meditate, and clear your mind, you may be missing it.
If you’ve tried meditating in the past, and felt your just couldn’t do it, know that there are many ways to meditate. You don’t just have to sit there and command your mind to be still. If you’re struggling to quiet your mind, try an active meditation like walking in nature, counting to ten, or one of my favorites breathing consciously in two’s!
Breathe in, and half way through your in breath, pause for a second… Then breathe in the rest of the way. When you exhale, pause half way through your out breathe for a few seconds, then exhale completely, and repeat the process. When you give your mind the focus of pausing with each breath, other thoughts are much more naturally and easily released.
Meditation is a skill which is developed over time, so don’t worry if your mind chimes in and your thoughts wander at first. Aim to meditate for a minute to start, then work your way up to five. When your thoughts do pop in, don’t worry… Just release them into the light and return your focus to your breath.
From within the still and calm of mediation, psychic insight, knowing and inspiration can shine through.

2. Trust and Go With The Flow

Psychic AbilitiesGut feelings are there for a reason, and can offer a basis for further developing your intuition when you pay attention, and listen to how you feel.
Feelings are the language of the soul, while words are the language of the mind and ego. When it comes to developing your intuition, and psychic ability, a feeling really is worth 1000 words.
Pay attention to your gut feelings, and act upon them. Trust that you are able to develop psychically and believe that you’re already receiving psychic information because, well… You are!
Trust is a signal you send out to the universe which builds up your vibration and aligns you with more clarity and certainty. Every bit of trust returns to you multiplied through validation and through real psychic experience.
Another important facet of trusting in your abilities, is not to try to prove yourself to anyone. I would recommend avoiding skeptics and naysayers when you’re developing, because their doubt can actually block your clarity. Just let yourself develop, and enjoy your connection, as there is much goodness in this which awaits.
If you feel blocked psychically, honor that. Take a break to replenish yourself, rejuvenate your spirit, and return to whatever you’re trying to tune into later. Sometimes psychic impressions do appear on demand, and other times, the clearest guidance pops in on a whim, when you’re really not even looking for it.
Don’t force yourself… this is meant to be fun, uplifting, and playful. If you’re not feeling the fun and goodness, take a break, and return to it when you’re once replenished energetically, and you’ll be all the better for it.

3. Ask For Protection, Work With Your Guides
    – psychicprotection

One of the reasons you want to keep your energy around psychic development fun, playful, and light, is because there are lower vibrational energies which you can, but I really don’t recommend you tune into.
If you’re coming from a perspective of love, joy, and gratitude you’ll attract only the most benevolent and uplifting guides. But when coming from a state of fear, guilt, or anger… You can attract all sorts of dense energies which will only cause problems for you.
For this reason, calling in protection is always recommended when tuning into receive psychic information from the realms of spirit. There are many ways to protect yourself psychically, practice with them, and find a way which works best for you.
The most common way to protect psychically is to shield. Specifically, a psychic shield of white light can be called in and placed around you at any time with a simple intention. Imagine you’re surrounded with an orb, or shield of white light, which is brightly shining all around you. This light pushes out and dissolves any negativity or density into the light, while allowing pure, uplifting, and helpful guidance to shine through.
If you feel you’re in a lower vibration, call in a shield of white light, and I would also really recommend taking a break to get yourself in a higher vibration before you proceed. It’s well worth the effort, as density attracts the like. Take a break, have some fun, connect with nature, relax and refresh…
If you’re having trouble clearing your energy, perhaps you have absorbed some negativity or density, call on your Spirit Guides and Angels who are always there to assist you, so don’t be afraid to ask.

‘I now call upon my Highest, Most Loving Spirit Guides and Angels of the Light who can most serve… Please come in, clear my energy with Light of the Divine. Release negativity from my vibration in all it’s many forms and uplift my energy with direct Love and Light from the Divine.”

4. Opening Your Chakras and Allowing Your Energy to Flow

Your chakra energy centers interpret, and translate direct Divine light and psychic information in a way which can be felt, known, and understood.
To activate, and clear your chakras, imagine that your energy is grounding into the core of the Earth. As your energy is grounded to Earth, allow yourself to feel the incredible light of the planet, and notice that you are one with it, feel this and know that you are an integral part of the One Source Energy flowing throughout Earth and throughout All That Is.
Take another deep breath now as you now allow this light from the core of the Earth to begin flowing up and in through the bottom of your feet, opening, balancing, and healing all 7 chakras of your physical body, and as this light continues to lift up now above your crown chakra let your consciousness go with it, opening your higher energy centers and continuing to lift up above the light, and into direct presence and connection with Creative Source Energy, with God, and with the Divine.
When each of your chakras are spinning perfectly, aligned with their highest possible vibration, and with the Divine, you’re able to clearly translate the physic information you receive.

5. Uplift Your Vibration With Love and Light

Love is the master path of awakening, and of developing your psychic senses. Practice choosing love in the present moment.
Practice increasing your awareness, and doing things which you love and enjoy to increase your energetic signature, which will make opening to receive psychic information come through with increased clarity.
Choose love, respond with love, and call love in. This may seem simple, but love is a powerful step for developing your psychic abilities.

6. Practice

The best way to practice opening to your psychic skills and abilities is simply to be aware. Strive to increase your present moment perspective and awareness always.
When you first meet someone… How does their energy feel? The overall image of the thoughts they think, and how they perceive reality is held within their emotional atmosphere, and you can become aware of it. This can really help you to understand about people and where they are coming from… their unique perspective.
When your phone rings, before you look to see who it is, tune in… Who is it?
I would also recommend working to learn to see auras, of yourself, of trees, and others.

Psychic Practice
Another fun test is to pick up a magazine, and pick a page number. Say… Page 18.
Before you open the magazine, ask, what is on page 18?
Tune in…What information do you receive?
Does a certain color, element or shape come to mind? Is there a person or object on page 18?
Once you’ve taken a moment to tune in… Turn to page 18 and see what is really there.
Don’t be too harsh on yourself if you’re wrong, just have fun, practice, and you’ll get clearer and clearer.
Celebrate what you do get right, or what is close. This is a great way to practice and pay attention to how your intuition and psychic ability works.
The last time I tried this and all I got was blue… I then opened to the page and it was a whole page spread of a swimming pool. I didn’t judge, or say, ‘well you weren’t very specific’, I just thought, yes… cool, it’s blue!
Psychometry is another fun way to practice opening psychically. Have someone you know hold an object, and then hand it to you. Can you read the energy of the person who has touched the object (or the many people) before you? Tune into, feel, and trust the info and energy you receive.

7. Keep a Journal

Journaling is a great way to track your experiences, and see yourself progress. I recommend writing down both your spiritual experiences, as well as any realizations or premonitions you have in dreams.
Write down your experiences, and refer back to them from time to time. The very act of writing will help to reinforce what you’re learning and experiencing. If you’re in doubt.. Just write down some affirmations like;

“I’m profoundly psychic, I am now opening to my psychic abilities, I am closely connected to my guides and angels, I receive psychic insights and impressions.”

You may not believe these affirmations when you first write them down, but write them 100 times, and it will begin to feel more natural, and will start to manifest as well. Then be sure to write down any impressions you receive, or hunches you did act on that proved true, this way you can look back and see in moments of doubt, this is real… I am developing.
The more you become aware of, and listen to your psychic ability, gut feelings, and intuition, the clearer and the more real it will become.
Yoga, spiritual practices, and helping others through loving service (the path of love as mentioned above) are wonderful ways to accelerate your path in opening, remembering, and experiencing your psychic abilities.
The key is to pay attention, trust yourself, follow your heart, and raise your vibration to bring your unique psychic abilities into focus.

The Big Wave will unleash the Truth and this will stir Chaos in the old paradigm. However, the chaos is good because it will mark the end of the false reality and outdated modalities. It will be the beginning of the new Earth reality in the unified field of consciousness.

consciousness-human-awakening-mountain-top-galaxy

 

This Fall 2016 will bring the first stage of the planetary shift; the opening of Ascension portals that will allow all the Star gates to activate. This is what will truly shift us into a new Earth reality. We will separate from the third dimension and it will not seem as if reality is quite right. There will be a strange Feeling that we have moved some place and the world will seem brighter.

Ultimately, we will see a complete collapse of the current governmental/political and monetary system. ‘Money’ will be rendered obsolete because it will no longer be relevant to the new Earth reality. After this Collapse has become obvious is when we will be plugged in to the Greater Consciousness and the new Photon Energy of new Earth will emerge. No one will be able to suppress the free use of the photon energy. This will change our entire existence in to complete Universal Knowledge, including Travel and Education over night. The inner Earth people will introduce technology that will remove all radiation and impurities from the ocean. There is technology that makes everything clean instantly.

We are almost at the time of the most exciting experience you will ever have. For those of us who are ready, it will be more like a Huge Miracle appearing before us. It will be the most wonderful of all occasions. All will be redeemed and reformed in miraculous ways.

At the time of the Planetary dimensional shift, those that have lifted their frequency beyond the old vibratory rates will not undergo physical death. It will be harmless because they will be anchored to the planet while it shifts from 3rd dimension to the 5th dimension. The way it works is, imagine a figure eight shaped hourglass. 3D is located on one side and 5D is located in the other side of the hourglass. In the middle of the hourglass, this narrow gap represents the gateway or the 4D portal for the planetary shift that occurs when two dimensional planes eclipse each other. It is a highly charged membrane of photons, which acts as the wavelength bridge to connect one side of the dimensional frequency band with the next highest band. All living things on the planet has two parallel bodies. The biological body is carbon/matter and interfaces with the ethereal body. The ethereal body exists as plasma/anti-matter. To consciously experience the dimensional shift, the ethereal body needs to be at the same wavelength as the ethereal frequency of the planet. The people that have not raised their frequency or do not raise their frequency now will not be able to physically handle the wave of high frequency energy as the planet enters through the dimensional gateway. Their bodies will disconnect from the planets ethereal body during the shift. This is how the “spiritual selection” process works.

dna-ladder1

The current calamities we are experiencing right now on the planet with the destructive actions such as war, pollution, nuclear waste has a direct impact on the planet’s life force, because any negative energy stored within our ethereal bodies filters directly into the planets ethereal body. And this is how the controllers are trying to stop the planet from shifting into the next dimension. For those of us who are compatible with the higher frequencies during the shift transition, we will feel like we exist but do not exist. Our consciousness is energy and will be traveling as energy and we will actually flow as light energy through the dimensional gateway, but we might not really feel it because it will take about a second to travel through the dimensional gateway and we will be re-materialized on the other side in 5D. When we undergo this frequency jump, our ethereal body, which contains the blueprint of our physical body will automatically re-materialized our body. Our body will have the same physical appearance as it does right now, except our new body will be Crystal/Silica because the higher frequencies from the solar flares have altered the atomic structure of our body. Only anti-matter will ascend and pass through the dimensional gateway. Meaning only naturally occurring things within the planet will ascend. All man made objects and synthetic materials within the 3D reality will disintegrate during the shift. So most of humanity’s current technology will not exist after the shift. It will take about 24 hours for the planet to fully spiral upwards into the next dimension. During the shift man made/synthetic objects will begin to fade out and disappear from our view, but at the same time, new Earth will begin to appear and materialize around us. So the shift will act as a 3D filter, any item or object that has a 3D frequency will spin off the planet and disappear when we move into 5D.

loving-embrace

The dimensional shift will be the catalyst for some major transmutations to the planet. Everything will look brighter and there will be new shapes and colors which will define our new plane of reality. You will notice that some family and friends are not with you. Please understand that a greater part of the worlds population for whatever reason will decide not to ascend to new Earth. We are now in crucial times, this is the moment of truthfulness for every being on the planet. Will they choose to allow themselves to be fully immersed and flooded with the higher dimensional frequency or reject the energy? The people who say no will ethereally spin off the planet by going through the normal physical death process and will reincarnate to a place that matches the level of consciousness they are, in another 3D planet similar to Earth. The bottom line is everyone will ascend at the time of the planetary shift, but not everyone will choose to ascend to new Earth.

The Fall Equinox 2016 will allow another huge acceleration of ascension energies to blast through the Christic Grids of Mother Earth. And then the Winter Solstice, the final BLAST of cosmic light energy coming from the Collective Consciousness of the Elohim Guardians, including the alliance of the cosmos. When this great explosion of divine light flows throughout the planet, Everything Will Change!

This Fall will bring the first stage of the planetary shift; the opening of Ascension portals that will allow all the Star gates to activate. The opening the Ascension Portals will be completed and this will allow the original Christ light consciousness to REMOVE anything that is not in harmonic alignment with the original divine plan for mother Earth. This is what will truly shift us into a new Earth reality.

The great awakening commences between September 22nd and October 21st. The big energy wave will unleash the Truth and it will mark the end of the false reality and the outdated modalities. It will mark the beginning of the new Earth reality in the unified field of consciousness.

12227110_1608804899380798_6818948091658032500_n

In this Ascension cycle, the soul will see past events transmuted into the frequency of completion. We will transmute all previous experiences and emotions in the highest frequencies of Source. There will be a Huge activation of Cosmic Memory for many thousands of human beings. This is the time of remembering who we really are. Our Starry Families will make sure to make it to our Graduation at the end of this year 2016.

When we speak of the “Second Coming of Christ”, it means we will be returning back to the vibration of God Source, the frequency associated with the Absolute Divine; Christ Consciousness. This is what we have to look forward to in the Fall of 2016, the return of the Cosmic Christ Consciousness.

The Cartel will be exposed. Corrupt Pharmacy will be exposed. All Corruption will be exposed. Everything! This will continue on through the second half of 2016. And then a brand new Earth reality will appear after the Truth Sets us free from the layers and layers of lies that we have been living in.

By the end of 2016 after two high dimensional frequency waves of the Cosmic Christ Light consciousness pours into the Christic Grids of Mother Earth, the collective consciousness will be changed so much, that the controllers will just Loose their control.

12341448_1616024138658874_2436507412968188517_n

There will be a mothership that will arrive in the 4th quarter 2016. The City-Size Ship was created by the Elohim Guardians with the help of the Galactic humanities of the cosmos. The good people will live their until the earth changes are completed. We are in the FINAL STAGE of this process that will complete by the end of 2016.

The 5D frequency jumper will commence in the Autumn Equinox and we will completely merge with Earth’s 5D parallel body – new Earth in the Winter Solstice of 2016. We will separate from the third dimension and it will not seem as if reality is quite right. There will be a strange Feeling that we have moved some place and the world will seem brighter.

There are Ascension portals between Earth and Parallel 5D Earth. Those living within the Inner Earth Cities of Light will be able to remove all of the radiation from the oceans once they are given the signal to move between domains after the portals are fully open by the end of 2016.

art_new pioneers(1)

By the end of 2016 new Earth will be fully established, and will take a few more years after that to rebuild many new Earth communities. A new social system will emerge and it will function on the universal Law of One. We will have universal rights and there will not be strict laws or regulations on living.

We are at a time of the most exciting experience you will ever have. For those of us who are ready, it will be more like a Huge Miracle appearing before us. It will be the most wonderful of all occasions. All will be redeemed and reformed in miraculous ways. It will be the most glorious, harmonious, divine flowing reality we could ever imagine.

The following is an excerpt of  “The Paradox of Our Age,” from Words Aptly Spoken, by Bob Moorehead.

We have taller buildings but shorter tempers; wider freeways but narrower viewpoints; we spend more but have less; we buy more but enjoy it less; we have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, yet less time; we have more degrees but less sense; more knowledge but less judgement; more experts, yet more problems; we have more gadgets but less satisfaction; more medicine, yet less wellness; we take more vitamins but see fewer results.

93

We drink too much; smoke too much; spend too recklessly; laugh too little; drive too fast; get too angry quickly; stay up too late; get up too tired; read too seldom; watch TV too much and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values; we fly in faster planes to arrive there quicker, to do less and return sooner; we sign more contracts only to realize fewer profits; we talk too much; love too seldom and lie too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life; we’ve added years to life, not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space; we’ve done larger things, but not better things; we’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less; we make faster planes, but longer lines; we learned to rush, but not to wait; we have more weapons, but less peace; higher incomes, but lower morals; more parties, but less fun; more food, but less appeasement; more acquaintances, but fewer friends; more effort, but less success. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; drive smaller cars that have bigger problems; build larger factories that produce less. We’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, but short character; steep in profits, but shallow relationships. These are times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure and less fun; higher postage, but slower mail; more kinds of food, but less nutrition. These are days of two incomes, but more divorces; these are times of fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, cartridge living, throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer, to prevent, quiet or kill. It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stock room. Indeed, these are the times!

Change starts with each person being individually responsible for their actions and behaviour.  What kind of world are we voting for with the way we choose to live our life?


The future of technology could hinge on a single material. The industry is currently buzzing over the potential of graphene, which is the strongest, slimmest and most malleable material in known existence. Graphene, which is a form of carbon, could change the way our devices look, feel, perform–and even interact with our bodies. Here’s how this sensational substance will influence the world of tech.

graphene 1

Stronger Than Steel

Smartphones like the LG G Flex can heal themselves from minor scrapes and scratches, but graphene should take durability to the next level. The material is purportedly 100 times stronger than steel. According to the American Chemical Society, graphene achieves this strength because its carbon atoms are arranged in two-dimensional sheets.

Flexible Like Rubber

Researchers at Columbia University told the The New York Timesthat graphene could stretch by 20 percent. In other words, it’s pliable just like rubber. Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology has been experimenting with graphene transistors, which would allow for easy production of flexible displays on both wearable devices and handsets.

Graphene is also resistant to water, so the material could potentially usher in a new generation of waterproof devices whose chassis may not need to be sealed like today’s devices.

The Lightest, Thinnest Devices Ever

According to a study from the American Chemical Society, graphene is thin enough to stretch over 28 football fields. The material holds a ton of tech potential, as we could someday see paper-thin smartphones and tablets that you can fold up when not in use.

A video posted on the Times’ website shows a block of graphene powder balancing on top of flower–and you don’t see a petal move or bend.

Incredible Battery Life

Graphene will likely influence not just how our devices look, but how long they last. Northwestern University researchers built a battery made of graphene and silicon, which supposedly lasted over a week on a single charge and only took 15 minutes to juice up. If graphene goes mainstream, you could possibly leave your smartphone charger home when traveling.

Working With Your Body

According to Dr. Aravind Vijayaraghavan at the University of Manchester, graphene has the potential to interact with your biological systems. This would take today’s fitness-tracking tech to all new heights, as graphene sensors could possibly scan your nervous system or “talk to your cells,” according to the Times. Mainstream devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 are showing a commitment to fitness features, and widespread graphene production could help make health-conscious devices the standard.

Outlook

Aside from its physical benefits, graphene is also one of the cheapest materials around. With Samsung, Nokia, SanDisk and IBM investigating uses for graphene (along with universities), we could soon see a host of exciting new devices that are stronger, lighter and cheaper for manufacturers and consumer alike.
