Everyone Has gifts
While some people are born with the ability to know and see far beyond what most of us are able to, we shouldn't get discouraged by the ease with which they access their gifts.
Some people are born with this door more open, but some people are born as business prodigies and musical virtuosos, as well. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't work on learning the instrument of our choice. Most people don't have innate ability when it comes to their successes.
It turns out, that most, if not all people, had to work hard to get what they achieved.
So, what are the steps to accessing this knowledge? This will range from person to person, but it certainly will begin with awareness of yourself. If you are running from point A to point B, never taking a second to care for or inquire deeper about yourself- then you likely aren't developing the awareness to hear beyond your inner monologue.
The first thing you have to do to receive an answer is to ask a question. If you aren't questioning, than this is your first mistake.
Here are a few steps to beginning to open to your own psychic abilities:
1. Set aside time dedicated to yourself and to increasing your inner awareness.
For most people, psychic thoughts and feelings will come from inside as a intuitive "lurch," not in a movie-eque way with visions and involved dream sequences, although this may happen with time! (Hey, anything is possible so don't discount it..)
2. During this time, close your eyes and really go within.
Begin to play with your other senses. See how far you can hear into the distance. Put a series of objects in front of you and use your fingers to trace and explore them, use your sense of smell and taste to explore your environment. Question yourself about what are sensing. What do you notice that you hadn't noticed with your eyes open?
Our mind is more rested and more open when our body is tired. So many people spend their days at the desk and then go home to flop on the couch. Despite the exhaustion many of us feel at the end of the day, our body has unexpressed energy that it is holding onto; maybe it's frustration from an interaction with a co-worker or excitement over a promising deal; whatever it is, releasing is necessary. Some suggestions include joining a sports league, doing yoga, dropping into a dance class, or hiking. Whatever way you enjoy using your body, make time to do it.
4. Begin to question when you want to know something.
Start with small things. Where is there a parking spot? What time will my wife be back? etc. etc. See if you can begin to get answers to some of these questions. You'll find the more you do this consciously, the easier it is to question subconsciously and start to get answers to the questions you are asking.
5. Consciously note your predictions and intuitive feelings when they come true.
It's almost like a stream that starts as a trickle and begins to gain momentum. Become aware and consciously make note of when when you are using your abilities. This is a good way to better understand when a thought is your intuition knocking or when it is something that's been generated from your thoughts, feelings, wishes or fears. Being an "active antenna" also makes it more likely that messages will be sent your way. People tend not to send mail to an address that isn't checking the mailbox!
6. Recognize the intersection of manifestation and psychic ability.
We all also have the power to manifest what we want. The intersection between manifestation and psychic predictions can be confusing. Did that thing happen because I wanted or feared it was going to happen or because I knew it would and it was inevitable? Much of our lives are created by us and our thoughts and feelings. Begin to play with the idea of creating your future from your desires. Set intentions and create goals and action plans. You may be surprised to see that this helps you to tap into your abilities, to foresee possible pitfalls, recognize when a person is an ally that can assist you, and attract more fortuitous coincidences.
Using these tips and practicing everyday will begin to open you up to the amazing amount of information that is bouncing around at any given moment. Make sure you protect yourself when you begin to play with your psychic abilities in the white light of love and protection. You want to surround your aura with a golden net to keep out negative energy. Being more sensitive is wonderful, but you want to make sure you are only letting positivity and light into your sphere.
