Are you psychic? 8 ways to tell

Every time I ‘read’ a new client, I look at their ability to get information intuitively aka psychically. Lately I’ve had a few who were quite psychic, but didn’t know that, and were uncomfortable with it. All they knew was they knew or felt things that they weren’t ‘supposed’ to know. At the end of our session, one of these clients said, ‘thanks for letting me know I’m not crazy’.So I thought I’d give you the most common ways people experience their psychic abilities, when they don’t know the abilities are psychic abilities — the things that make people think they’re crazy.  Often people experience more than one, but it’s rare for someone to have ALL of them. I’m listing them in the order of the chakras with which they’re associated. For more on the chakras, go here.

  • I’m jumpy for ‘no reason’ – You might get psychic information in your first chakra, which is normally concerned with survival stuff (health, money, etc.). The problem is that when you’re getting psychic information here, this information may not be about you. So when you feel nervous or jumpy, you have to ask yourself, “Is this even about me?” If the answer is yes, deal with it yourself. If the answer is no, then sit with it, and see if the information becomes more specific. If you can’t get anything more specific, let it go and relax.
  • I can feel other people’s feelings -This is a classic example of a wide open 2nd chakra. To some degree, we are all wired for this (using mirror neurons) and it is definitely stronger in some people than in others. For many, this is a good thing. But for some people, others’ feelings hijack your own life. There are things you can do to stop this, but a written description won’t suffice.
  • I can feel the energy of a place – This is similar to feeling others’ feelings — except no mirror neurons are involved. Back when I was opening up psychically, I attended a Sunday open house of a house that was for sale, on the recommendation of my realtor. Though the house had all the features I was looking for, I was so creeped out by the feeling of the place that I literally ran out in under 2 minutes. The next day, the realtor told me that the house was owned by a fugitive who was wanted for murder.
  • I have these internal arguments – And it’s not just yes/no or should/shouldn’t. There are multiple lines of argument from different points of view. I suggest that in this case, you are probably hearing your guides’ points of view. There are things you can do to work with this, and turn it into an asset rather than an annoyance, but a written description won’t suffice. This is a throat (5th) chakra ability.
  • I can hear other people’s thoughts or or see other people’s pictures – Have you ever had a thought, and then had it immediately contradicted by another? Many years ago, my (now ex) husband went out of town on a business trip while I moved house for us. The new place was closer to the airport than the old one. When I picked him up at SFO, he said he wanted to drive, which was fine with me. As we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, I pictured in my mind our new exit, and driving to our new home. Immediately afterwards, an image of the old exit came into my mind. I said, “No, we’ve moved, we’re getting off at the Sausalito exit.” To which he replied, “Thanks.” (I was so sure that I’d seen his picture that I never even asked him. And I was right, because he wasn’t even surprised when I corrected him.) My example is a third eye (6th chakra) one, but hearing others’ thoughts is either throat chakra or crown (7th) chakra  ability.
  • I get images of the future, places I’ve never been, people I’ve never met – Classic clairvoyance (third eye)! The problem with these is that you don’t know what the images are until later. It’s important to remember these (even keep notes), so that when they show up in real life, you’ll understand (a) that you ‘saw’ this stuff earlier and (b) learn what sorts of things/people/ places/events you tend to foresee.
  •  I ‘just know’ stuff – I ‘just know’ what someone else is thinking, or who’s on the other end of the phone when I pick it up (and no, Caller ID doesn’t count). Again, this is a crown chakra ability, which is direct mind to mind communication. When it’s with a living human, it’s called telepathy. When it’s with a discarnate being, it’s called channeling.
  • I have precognitive dreams -  This is often astral travel, which is sending your consciousness to other places and/or times. Sometimes (though this will feel completely different, and is not technically a dream), it’s actually leaving your body to go to another point in space/time.

If you do any of these things, and want to learn more about your abilities and/or practice them in a safe setting, please send me an email. I’m thinking of doing my teleseminar series again, beginning in August. It will be twice a month, for about 1 1/4 hours/class, at 5:30PM PT. I am taking votes on whether Tuesdays or Thursdays are preferable. Please let me know which day you prefer.

What do you know? And how do you know it?

Many years ago, I was a part owner of a business that sold equipment to fire departments, so I got to know lots of firefighters, mostly fire captains and fire chiefs. One of those chiefs, who’d been a volunteer for over 20 years in a fire department that protected part of Hwy. 80, told me he’d never seen a fatal car wreck where the driver was wearing a seat belt. He didn’t know why, but suspected it was because it kept the driver better oriented to what was happening.Times are about to get very weird. (See this and listen to this and this to learn about what I mean. They are long, and well worth the time and effort. The written one is well-researched, and the audio is convincing.) Imagine that you’re alone, flying down the highway at top speed, when the road suddenly disappears. Maybe you’re just on grass, or worse, mud. Or you’re suddenly in a forest, having to drive around trees that you never noticed before. And all kinds of people are suddenly clamoring for your attention, some from the back seat and some from the forest.

It’s definitely time to fasten your metaphorical seat belt. How do you do that?

Ask yourself how you know what is true. The natural world is a great place to start. Plants can’t really lie, and animals find that pretty hard, too (the Oscar-worthy performances of our cat to scam us out of more food notwithstanding). What do you feel in your physical body (or your electromagnetic body) when you’re in nature? Maybe you’d describe it as peaceful, or grounded, or one of a thousand other words, but go deeper. Use kinesthetic words to describe the feeling — are you feeling light or heavy? warm or cool? tense or relaxed? tingly? These are just suggestions — it doesn’t matter how you feel, but rather that you identify it.

Once you have that down, how do you know when someone is telling the truth? Again, use what you feel.

Or here, maybe you have an inner voice, the still small voice within, that says, “nope”, or some variant of that. It’s important to pay attention to the quality of that voice. Is it male? female? neither? How fast does it speak? Does it’s inflection go up and down, or stay fairly flat? Where does the voice seem to come from? Is it inside your head, or somewhere outside that you can point to?

Or maybe it’s not a voice, exactly. Maybe it’s a sound. Maybe it beeps when you’re getting a lie, or the truth for that matter. Again, it doesn’t matter how you know the truth, but that you identify how you know it. 

It’s important to keep that truth meter on all the time. The best lies include some elements of truth, and you have to be discerning to tell which is which.

Remember, as things get strange, you can’t drive looking in the rear view mirror. If things change significantly, then habitual ways of acting must shift. You wouldn’t drive the same way in snow as you would on a sunny warm day, would you? Look at the conditions ahead.

As you watch significant changes happening all around you, it might be easy to be seduced by the spectacle into just watching. This is equivalent to trying to drive while watching out your side window. You’re likely to crash, because you’re not watching where you’re going.

Similarly, it will be important to stay focused on your responsibilities as things change. This will be different for each person, and only you will know your particular path through the new landscape. How will you know? By knowing your own truth.

Dealing with Uncertainty

Are you feeling stressed out by the amount of uncertainty in your world?  Me, too.When I was getting my MBA, I took a course, called “Self-Assessment and Career Development”. In the course, we did a number of standard tests to learn more about ourselves, so that we could plan our careers better. One of these explored how comfortable we were with ambiguity/uncertainty. I was extremely high in this regard — out there on one tail of the bell curve with the research scientists.

On top of that, I have clairvoyant abilities, so I can see out into the future for planning purposes. I also have a strong belief in inertia, which is the tendency of something to remain going (or not going) along the path on which it is already going. This helps for planning, as well, and for being comfortable with uncertainty.

But I’m feeling a bit uncomfortable with the amount of uncertainty in the world right now. And if I’m feeling it, I’ll bet you are, too.

I have a strong sense right now that my belief in inertia is about to be challenged. In fact, I ‘see’ an image of a point on a graph where the direction changes abruptly, a place where all change is possible, coming quite soon. (See bad drawing on left. Point A is the point to which I refer.) I can see that on the other side of it, things are going to look much the same as today, but much better somehow.

So how do we handle this place where anything is possible? Here is what my guides want us all to remember:

  • We are all in this together. Since we are co-creating this reality, each of us must do his or her part to create the future we choose. What do you choose? Do you choose the golden rule, or do you choose a situation where he who has the gold, rules? Do you choose freedom and justice for all, or do you choose a government sold to the highest bidder? Do you choose the comfort of the dysfunctional system we have, because at least it is something you know, or do you choose to envision something healthier, even though it’s scary because it is unknown?
  • Vision matters. What is your vision of the future? What is yor vision for yourself? your family? your community? your country? the Earth as a whole? Since we create our realities from our (often unconscious) beliefs, it is important to notice where those beliefs lead us into fear and to shift them to more empowering beliefs. (If you want help with this, call me at 888-4-HOLLIS.)
  • Collective vision matters.  If enough of us have a vision of a better world, say one of ecological health, then this is the way it will go. None of us has to know how to get there, or even exactly where “there” is, we just all have to have a positive vision. This means, of course, that we can’t give in to the dystopian visions that fear creates, and that are fed to us by the media.
  • Action matters. There is an old saying that ‘nothing changes until something moves’.
  • You only have to do your part. Feeling responsible for the future of the world be quite overwhelming. You are not responsible for the entire world; you are only responsible for your part of it and in it. Your part can be meditating and holding the positive vision and/or protesting and/or helping to develop an energy-saving device and/or planting a garden and/or recycling and/or well, you name it. Just do your part, whatever that is.

I really believe that if each of us holds a positive vision for ourselves, our families, our communities, our countries, and the planet, then it will help put us on a good track as we travel through this uncertain time.

The Future of Privacy

Are you upset about the lack of privacy on the web? About how current or potential employers can see those photos of you from college, or worse, high school, of you doing the stupid things you still can’t believe you did back then? Perhaps a little historical perspective is in order.

Back when humans lived in small clans, and even when we lived mostly in villages, everyone knew everyone else’s business, all the time. You couldn’t have an adulterous affair, and expect not to be branded with the letter A. If your acts were too outrageous, you had to leave the tribe or clan, which in some cases meant certain death. Consequently, people moderated their behavior to suit the norms of their society.  Yes, it was stultifying, and you can read about that in countless Victorian novels. (There are still places like this, places where entire extended families sleep in the same room, and so nothing is private, not even sex between a husband and wife.)

Towns and cities grew. More people moved away from their farms and small towns to live in these cities. Living alone in a city, you began to feel that what you did was private, and largely anonymous. (Please note that anonymity is often conflated with privacy here.) The result of this privacy/anonymity is the feeling that you could indulge in all sorts of debauched or nefarious behavior without anyone knowing, which is to say, without consequences. And you feel the strongest privacy/anonymity within your own home, your refuge from the outside world. (In the US, this is partly because of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, which states, in part, that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated”.) 

Along comes the Internet, and especially Facebook, which has made it ridiculously easy for you to document your own life if you have access to a computer and/or a smartphone. Unfortunately, all your friends can do this, too. So now, any unguarded, embarrassing behavior, even done in your own home, can now be opened up to the scrutiny of the entire world. Global village, indeed! We are, in fact, coming full circle. Or as Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, says, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”

Now imagine that the internet is a precursor for humanity’s development. Envision a world where the internet is unnecessary because everyone can tap into the same knowledge base, where everyone has internal access to all knowledge all the time. Envision a world where everyone has fully developed intuitive abilities — especially external clairvoyance (the ability to see everyone’s energy fields), clairsentience (the ability to feel other’s emotions) and telepathy (the ability to know what others are thinking). This is where I think we’re headed.

You’ll have to modify not only your behavior, but also your thoughts, which cause your feelings, or everyone will know. The good news is that you’ll know everything about everyone else, too, so they’ll have to modify their behavior and thoughts, as well. This will result in more fair trade, because everyone will be aware of the consequences of their purchases. It will also result in a lot less crime, as it will be intuitively obvious to everyone that a crime is about to be committed, and people will choose to intervene gently. People will eventually be easier on themselves, too, because they’ll have example of how to change their thoughts, so they don’t have to beat themselves up.
