This gets said a lot, but not many people new to their spiritual path believe it or even understand it. For many non-spiritual people, when they hear the word Psychic they instantly picture gypsies with crystal balls or any other cliché that goes with the word, but this comes down to lack of knowledge. But what does being psychic mean?
We all know the 5 senses such as hearing, seeing, tasting, touching and smelling. But there is a sixth sense that even though people have heard of it, they may not believe they possess it. Have you walked into a room and could ‘feel’ the energy in the room… like you knew you walked in on an argument? Or knew who was on the other end of the phone when it rang before you answered it or looked at the phone? How about when you suddenly feel the hair on your arms or the back of your neck stand up without knowing why and getting a ‘bad feeling’ about something. Have you ever just had a gut feeling and just ‘knowing’ the outcome. Nearly everyone you speak to can recall at least one point in their life when they experienced one of these things.
I find it funny that most people, no matter what background or religion they are with, can believe in gut feeling, but as soon as you mention psychic or medium their walls go up. As we see, it comes back to knowledge, understanding and awareness. I will tell you right now, if you have ever had a gut feeling about something then you are psychic.
This gut feeling is called intuition and the goal of anyone developing psychic abilities is strengthening and fine tuning this intuition. When we do this, and we begin to make it stronger, you may find you experience clairvoyance, clairaudience or even a stronger sense of empathy. Again, you have all these abilities and the stronger intuition gets then the stronger those extra senses become. As your intuition branches down these different avenues, one of them will be stronger than the other and because it is stronger, then you automatically begin to use that one more. Therefore, some people say they are a clairvoyant or an empath, because that is where they are strongest.
Where do your strengths lie?
