Yep – it’s number one because it’s the key to a better psychic connection. If you aren’t a meditator, that’s OK, because there are still pockets in the day away from the screen when life can be pondered. I get my best insights out walking. I’m even writing this as I speak with a voice memo. Close the laptop – put the phone down and simply gaze out the window.
What do you see? What do you hear? What do you feel around you? Just that moment of raising awareness is one step closer to making random psychic moments that happen unconsciously into your control.
Action step: Find pockets of the day to reflect. A regular daily chore works well for this, like folding laundry or driving. It gives the mind something easy to do. What pocket of the day can you take advantage of?
2. Go with your gut
We think intuition lives in the third eye, but it’s the solar plexus – where the fire of our spirit burns. It’s not called gut instinct for nothing. Feelings are the language of the soul. Feelings bypass the ego, and the more we can get out of our minds and into the soul parts of ourselves the more accurate our insights will be. Take care of your beautiful body – we only get one. Our body is like a giant receiver for all psychic information.
Action step: What gut instincts do you act on? Take note of what your gut says next time there’s a decision to be made.
3. Discover what makes you feel relaxed open and receptive
There are so many ways to Spirit, from chanting, to yoga, to meditation, to whirling dervish dancing. They all heighten awareness, shifting us into a beautiful altered state of perception where we can truly receive answers. Do what feels healthy for you. Do what you can right now. Because when we feel relaxed and open the door to intuition fly open.
Action step: What part of your lifestyle could do with a relaxation upgrade?
4. Work with your guides
Even if you don’t know who they are or if they are. You don’t need to know their names or what superior existence they’re from. They’re just a thought away and all you need to do is ask. Working with Spirit guides is a team sport and you can get to know them better with free resource I created called: The Guide to Spirit Guides.
Action step: Ask a question and be open to the answer, even if it feels like its your own thought-voice answering. That’s the most common way they communicate.
Trust builds a powerful vibration that draws in more trust. It’s like a muscle, it needs to be used to get bigger and the best time to start is now. This is the law of attraction at work; you get what you focus on. When we learned to walk, we fell down more times that we stop up, right? But we got up…again and again and again.
Action step: Intuition is the thing that arrives before thought. Knowing this, go through the next few days noticing the images and feelings that pop up instantly about whatever you’re thinking. If you’re relaxed and open, trust them. It will be a psychic message.
6. Don’t worry about chakras
When it comes to getting better psychic messages, chakras aren’t really needed. Sure, they are an essential part of your invisible anatomy, like your aura and energy field, but do they need to fiddled with? Not really, Chakras are self regulating and don’t need to be ‘opened’ (they’re open already) And they can’t close otherwise you’d be dead!
Action Step: Instead of worrying about chakras and if your third eye is open, try this: Next time you feel a message or want to use your intuition to get more information about something, check into your belly. They don’t call it ‘gut instinct’ for nothing.
7. Practice reading the vibes
Practice tuning into the vibes of people, places and objects. This is called ‘psychometry. It’s the ability to read energy from someone or something, like a finger print of energy that’s left behind.
This comes in handy with photos on facebook, holding someone’s keys and feeling into where they’ve been and also great for visiting popular tourist destinations that have big history attached to them. Think of the vibes in places like Alcatraz and old battlefields, and you will have already experienced psychometry.
Action step: Next time you walk into a room thick with ‘vibes’, tune in and see if you can get more of the story. Ask to hold something that belongs to someone else and allow the objects ‘energy print’ to tell you more.
Easier said than done, but I have a joke with the students i teach on in the My Psychic Soul when they get anxious before an exercise: Pretend you’ve had three glasses of wine. Notice I said pretend, but the idea is to let go enough and borrow on the courage a few wines give and allow yourself to tune in unselfconsciously.
Action Step: No – it’s not having three glasses of wine, but to find the courage and relax enough to just SAY what the hunch, image, vision or phrase is. You will surprise yourself.
9. Keep a development journal
Keep a log of all the hits, the hints, the nudges and the misses in a journal devoted just for that. We know anything that’s tracked improves, whether it’s a savings account or the number of steps on a Fitbit. They may seem like coincidences at the time, but when tracked in a development journal the pattern becomes clear. They can’t all be coincidences, can they?
Action Step: Keep the journal for days when you feel down and less confidence about your psychic progress. All those coincidences will jump out and you will relive the hits and great messages because they were recorded.
10: You’re OK as you are
