Your Gift

YOU have psychic abilities, whether you acknowledge them or not. Ignore them at your peril. Maybe you’ll see yourself in this:

Last weekend, I went to a holiday party, given by one of my clients, an acupuncturist. Because I’d helped her pass her acupuncture boards, which she’d failed 3 times before, she kept introducing me enthusiastically as a clairvoyant and coach. That meant that all of my conversations centered on things psychic, intuitive and/or spiritual (which was actually fun for me!).

The conversation that struck me most was with Joe, a many-degreed, successful high tech engineer. Joe has those bright blue eyes that evidence great intelligence, as well as an Atlantean past (if you don’t believe in Atlantis, just ignore that part), complete with psychic ability. (I see this sometimes, but only in blue eyes; with other color eyes, it just isn’t immediately obvious to me.)

Joe was curious, no, fascinated with my psychic abilities, because he said he didn’t have any. I told him that we all have some degree of psychic ability, but that it comes in different ways; the most common is what people call ‘gut feelings’. Joe admitted that he had those, and joked about providing ‘psychic tech support’. But then he said that he couldn’t trust them much, as evidenced by his horrendous people judgment, which led to horrible relationships, both romantic and business, which led to very expensive legal problems. I could see the activity in his third eye, and told him he was clairvoyant, whether he knew it or not.

As we talked, Joe complained of knowing things that other people didn’t want to hear, telling them, and being ostracized for it. A classic psychic’s complaint! The problem is not knowing what you know. The problem is not knowing what other people don’t know, or don’t want to know. The problem is in knowing how, when and to whom it is safe to disclose what you know.

Joe told of downloads into his mind of information, which he described as a 3 1/4″ floppy being inserted into the left side of his head. This is classic telepathy!

It turned out that Joe had always had this telepathy, but had had so many bad experiences as a child, that he had turned off his ability to access the information he got through it. Ignoring his deepest level of information left him incredibly vulnerable to people who could and would callously take advantage of him.

Your psychic abilities are your gift, no matter what form they come in. They might come as gut feelings (clairsentience), pictures of things (clairvoyance), the still small voice within (clairaudience), downloads of information (telepathy/channeling), or smelling or tasting things that aren’t there (clairolfaction or clairgustation). No matter — they are your birthright. Would you willingly blind your physical vision? If you are ignoring your psychic abilities, you are doing effectively that — and your life is much the poorer for it.

You can change that — right now! You can resolve to notice what you notice, and know what you know, even if you don’t know how you know it. No matter what your abilities, no matter how developed (or not), you can practice — and practice makes perfect. (And if you are ready and willing to claim your psychic abilities, as well as how to talk about them, send me an email (use the box in the top right corner), and I’ll let you know when I’m teaching another psychic development teleclass.)
