On Psychic Etiquette

The human senses register millions of pieces of information every second, so many that we can’t possibly process them all consciously — and many of then we can’t even process at an unconscious level. These bits of information, processed beneath the level of conscious awareness, constitute intuition or the psychic senses. (See Malcom Gladwell’s “Blink” for a great discussion of this.)

You can choose where to focus your attention, however. And as you begin to open up psychically, you have to have guidelines for the responsible use of your abilities. Here are my rules for what is fair game (you can choose your own):

  1. Things that concern me.
  2. Things that other people ask me to look at that concern them.

For me, all else is off limits — it is not clairvoyance, but clairvoyeurism, rather like being a psychic peeping Tom. If no one asks me to look, I don’t look.

I do know some people have a lot of natural psychic or intuitive ability, and don’t know how to manage it, and ‘see’ or feel stuff for other people all the time. These people (usually women) are so overwhelmed by the information that they get, that they either can’t function, or shut the abilities down entirely. And often, before they shut down the abilities, they have the experience of telling someone something they saw, and being made wrong for having seen it.

Shutting down seems a shame to me, because we are given these gifts as a natural part of our existence, and not using what you have is like tying your dominant arm behind your back. Then you don’t have your arm available for your own betterment or protection, and you don’t have it available to help others who want to be helped. (If you are one of these people, I can help.
