Sensory Field Trips: The Power of Your Senses to Access Your Psychic Ability

Psychic Ability Happens Through Your Senses (Sense-Abilities)

All Sense-Abilities are avenues by which to see the world as it really is. Psychic abilities without a purposeful intention to do good for others are skills that can be learned and, as such, are merely skills. Skills are just that—skills. Psychic awareness, psychic abilities, psychic creativity, and spiritual growth present opportunities for supernatural practices to serve personal growth and the needs of humankind. When psychic potential is unleashed, and you can see what it manifests, you know that it is probably worth your while to pursue it.

Sensory Field Trip: Step One to Access Your Psychic Self

But first things first. Decide the focus your psychic ability will take. Connecting with your higher self, your sixth sense, and the spirit world requires the use of all your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight. These senses are the doorways through which your connection with your intuitive, psychic self develops. Through your Sense-Abilities, you take your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. This process becomes a heightened sensing. Psychic Sense-Abilities come in many forms, and the development of any psychic ability takes time and energy.

The first thing to do before attempting to invest in any kind of formal training is to get a sense of your own inner Sense-Abilities. Start by taking time to increase awareness of everything around you. Try taking a sensory field trip—a time when all you do is practice awareness. Go to a zoo, the woods, your local grocery store, or farmer’s market. Take time to notice everything there. Take thirty to forty minutes to wander around. Listen to the sounds that make up the environment, the smells you encounter, and everything you rarely take notice of. Look everywhere, and feel everything. Feel textures, notice colors, sensations, temperatures, and smells. Handle things. Notice the weight and temperature of the items you touch.

What is happening all around you? Is it colder or warmer in certain parts of the store? What are you feeling on the inside of your body? What are you feeling on the outside of your body? Are you drawn to look up, down, or to the side for any reason? If so, ask yourself why. It is important to notice direction because of the way things present; looking from top to bottom, from right or left matters.

Take into account how you are feeling along the way; attempt to ascertain what reactions you are having and why. Keep track of what keeps you from focusing and what may be the cure. Focus on the smallest details; write down every experience as you go, but don’t allow your writing to distract you. Jot down just a word or two to remind you of each experience. You can focus on the writing later.

Noticing directions is important, as directional messages are correlated with time. For example, something presenting from the left can mean it is linked to the past, from the middle, a link to the present, and from the right, a future connection.

The sensory field trip will help you access which Sense-Abilities you are predisposed to practice. You will get a sense of what your innate talents are. Each of the Sense-Abilities is a complementary tool, available to psychics through the way they access information— information which can’t be learned any other way.

Wait, I Can Have Two or More Gifts? … Yes! 

It is possible you will find what particular affinity you have for one or several Sense-Abilities. You will find those Sense-Abilities form the foundation for your activities with clients. You will also find that each Sense-Ability grows in development and intensity. Be aware of what kind of information is most likely to be revealed to you and through which Sense-Ability it is most likely to come. Remember not to dismiss anything that is unfamiliar or strange. Be bold and open to what was previously closed to you.

Once you have determined which sense is the strongest for you, sit in a comfortable, quiet position. Become aware of your body and your breathing. Breathe in and out slowly for a minute or so. Then, give attention to the Sense-Ability with which you connect the strongest. Next, simultaneously be mindful of your breath and your Sense-Ability, as if they were one. If hearing is the most prominent of your senses, then focus your attention on your ears. Breathe in and out slowly, focusing for several minutes on the fact that you and your ears are one. If your Sense-Ability is Taste Reception, focus on your tongue, and exhale and inhale as you do so. Each day, when it comes to your attention, take time to repeat this exercise with your dominant Sense-Ability in mind. Concentration will make your particular Sense-Ability more firmly instilled in your mind.

Become comfortable with your hunches, gut and natural sense of knowing. Learn to trust this. If something doesn’t feel right, chances are it isn’t. What may be right for one person may be totally wrong for another. We have all experienced times when a feeling deep in the stomach compels us to take action. If we don’t listen to this prompting, we might feel as though we had missed doing something central to our benefit or the benefit of someone else. There are times when we’ve listened to such an urging, only to learn that listening made a difference and was important.

Your sixth-sense is your inner guide. Learn to trust it. It may be scary at first, and it may appear to lack logical sense, but you will soon discover it does make sense. When you obey your urges and listen to your inner-self, you’ll reinforce the power of your awareness and see it become an important part of how your life (and the lives of others) obtains a deeper understanding of certain events.

Being Proactive, Open Vigilant and Aware Matters

Pay attention and be aware. The more data and information you absorb, the more your subconscious mind will reveal. Your intuitive senses use all the information gathered from your conscious mind. They allow your subconscious mind to play a part in delivering information to aid in your decision-making. Remember: your subconscious mind communicates information directly to your conscious mind, and it does so through the power of your inner perceptions. It is important for the development of your psychic abilities to pay attention to even the smallest hints and clues you receive. The key to a fully integrated experience is to take notice.

If you have ever ignored your intuition or inner observations and later had to deal with unpleasant consequences, you know the importance of paying attention. Remember: the more you pay attention, the more you will experience. The more you experience, the clearer and more correct your messages will be.

Harness the Power of Your Rest Time

Use the power of sleep. Much can be learned and explored while your consciousness visits the unconscious realm. Put your subconscious mind to work while you sleep. Before you go to bed at night, reflect on any questions or issues for which you need solutions. Your subconscious mind will consider the problem and make an answer apparent to you in the morning. Since dreams and sleep information are often lost in the presence of the conscious mind—the light of day—have a pen and book light available for recording what you have discovered.

It’s so Trite, Yet True: Journal

Journaling will also help. When you take time to record your experiences, you give yourself the ability to evaluate and appraise the whys and wherefores of your experiences. It is an excellent way to give meaning to inner messages, insights, and unexpected knowledge. Remember: the development of your personal awareness is akin to learning a new skill. The more you practice, the better you will become.

Mediumship Development: How to Initiate Spirit Communication

Initiating Spirit Communication

Interactors are often the ones who initiate Spirit Interactions, but spirits may be the ones to initiate a contact as well. However, it is possible for you to initiate a connection on your own in spite of the fact that you may not have formal training. Here are ways to go about it.

Ask

Spirits will come when invited. They honor your space, and they don’t just drop in without permission. You may want to request they show you a symbol or sign when they are ready to come through. This will give you a clear indication that you have been heard, and the spirit is ready to respond.

Be Open

We often carry certain desires and expectations about connecting with a particular loved one. Try to let go of any preconceived notions of how such an experience should go, and most importantly, believe in the spirit’s ability to reach you. It will come in many forms—some unexpected.

Be Patient

Your loved ones are on schedules of their own and are adjusting to being on the other side in much the same way you are adjusting to their passing. Think of it as if they are getting situated in a new home. Give them time to settle. It will help them make the transition easier. Simply tell your loved ones that you are perfectly willing to receive their messages when they are ready to communicate. Also, remember that wanting to communicate too eagerly may hinder communication. Be decisive, objective, and confident, so the spirit can feel comfortable enough to trust you. Be free of expectations, and the event will come to fruition in a way that is natural and free-flowing.

State your Intention

State aloud your intention to open the door through which to speak and receive messages from the spirit world. Whether you encounter interaction on a personal level or in a formal reading session, know that the universe hears you. There is a divine plan in place greater than you and your intention. Allow things to happen.

Tune In

In your daily meditation, be sure to quiet your logical, left brain thinking. Say hello and then goodbye to your left brain. Make an agreement with your left brain to reconvene at another time. Meditation and a quiet mind will assist in a quicker and clearer connection with a spirit.

Be Aware

The next important step in your journey is watching for signs, symbols, and messages during your day. Links to the spirit world may come in dreams, songs, and in synchronistic-like events, which you assume are coincidences. But, coincidence is nonexistent. Everything is intentional and has a place. Everything is meant to happen.

 Use Your Sense-Abilities

Connecting with the spirit world requires the use of all of your senses: taste, touch, smell, hearing, feeling, and seeing. Therefore, the practice of any one of the Sense-Abilities takes your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. It is the practice of one or more of the Sense-Abilities that gives deeper meaning to the function of your senses.

A Technique for Sensing Spirit Energies

Another way to train yourself to be aware of the energies of a spirit is to choose two people (one living and one deceased) whom you know well. Obtain a picture of the people you have chosen. It’s important that you are familiar with the people you have chosen, because you will also be familiar with their energy. It is much easier to learn how to sense energy when you know the persons and have had a relationship with them. Next, have a notebook and pen to record what you experience.

Steps for One Type of an Energy Detection Technique

  1. Sit in a relaxed position. Place your non-dominant hand over the photo of the living person, palm facing upward in an attitude of receptivity. Now give some thought to the person. Remember to be mindful of your breath. You don’t have to look at the photo, but rather, feel the thoughts of the person as the thoughts begin to emanate. Record what memories come to mind, what feelings you sense inside and outside of your body. Can you see what that person is wearing? Do you hear the voice? What is the person saying? Is there a smell present? Or, are you aware of a color? Write everything down that presents itself to you. Information is connected to the spirit’s energy. There is no right or wrong in this process.
  2. When you are ready, go through the same process with the second photograph—the photograph of the deceased person. Again, give an easy and gentle thought to him or her, and just allow yourself to be a receptacle for receiving whatever comes. Sense the energy of the picture, and visualize the individual. Take notes of all that is presented. Take notes about what you learn about them, and most importantly, tune into his or her energy. Release any desire to fixate on any particular thing or memory. Just breathe, and gently focus on sensing the energy there.
  3. Now take time to write down the unique differences between the energy and feeling of the deceased person versus the living person. The feeling may be slight, but trust that your subconscious self has fully grasped this difference. Your conscious self may not be so attentive and may need more time and practice in order to become aware.

Summing it Up

Practicing this technique is a valuable gateway for opening yourself to spirit energies. Repeat this exercise several times. When you become more adept, try adding photographs of people you don’t know, living and deceased. Consider well-known leaders, athletes, and other influential people. The energy of such people is unique, strong, and easier to discern. In time, and with consistent practice, you will be able to clearly distinguish a concrete feel for each energy type.
