What Psychic Ability Is and Is Not: Signs You’re Psychic

A Word About Psychic Ability and Intuition

The steps we take on life’s journey are fraught with ups and downs, misconceptions and falsehoods, unexpected realizations and unprecedented understandings. Life is learning. Even our ability to observe firsthand events correctly is impacted by the inability of our brains to record more than five specific facts at one time. The other facts—rightly or wrongly remembered—are filtered out of our recollection. Our observations are also influenced by our worldview and past influences, not actual facts. The realm of psychic and otherworldly happenings, like our observations, can’t be definitively defined. But in spite of that, the world of psychic phenomena has thousands of followers, and the people who believe in an active, unseen world practice its teachings.

What we do know about this area of life is that such belief structures are part of our culture. The world of active spirituality, of psychic seeing, mediumship, and other psychic modalities, is growing. Just as many people are interested in religious principles and inspirations, many are interested in the mysterious realm of the supernatural. In the past, people thought something was wrong with anyone who thought about psychic or spiritual matters. Now people are curious. They are in the midst of reconsidering any information they’ve learned about the universe and the world of the unseen. There is a new wave of investigation into such things as intuition, hunches, instinct, unusual awareness, and the possibility of a sixth sense.

Insightful Perspectives About Intuition & Psychic Functioning

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book Blink: The Power of Thinking without Thinking takes a long, hard look at the power and presence of the seldom-understood phenomenon we call intuition. We can’t conclusively explain intuition, but researchers like Gladwell have taken a stab at it. His argument suggests our mental processes work quickly and automatically, using an overabundance of information acquired over a lifetime. He puts forth a theory that expert judgment and instantaneous decisions are often accurate without the benefit of extensive knowledge. He also looks into factors that prevent us from using our intuition knowingly and investigates the influences that appear to destroy this mechanism of human intuition.

Others also believe intuition is the result of a lifetime of experiences—an exposure to information residing in our subconscious until the accumulation of that information can be used. These people believe our minds have the ability to archive all types of information we don’t log in on a conscious level. They believe we pick up information subconsciously, never really comprehending it—body language, tone of voice, a particular look, or something out of place—and this is the root of intuition.

To others, however, intuition is a knowing or sensing that comes from within because we are a part of a universal mind, and it comes without the benefit of rational explanation. They believe intuition is an unnamed something that operates beneath our layers of logic, something that works as our conscious and unconscious minds communicate in unexpected ways, an unconscious reasoning that propels us to do things without telling us why or how. In the book Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, Jobs, an inventor and pioneer of the computer revolution, called intuition, “more powerful than intellect.” Intuition, for both camps, is the sum of our intellectual ability, acquired knowledge, past experiences, and sensory perceptions. For some, it also includes psychic input.

What Psychic Ability Is and Is Not

Instinct

Instinct is an internally driven, fixed pattern of behavior exhibited in animals in response to a specific stimulus. It is an inborn impulse, a motivation to action. Salmon swim upstream and fight strong river currents in response to a compulsion to return to their birthplaces and spawn a new generation. Salmon do this in response to instinct, not intuition. Intuition is an experience unique to humans.

Mental Sensories

Intuition not only uses our mental senses to inform us, but it also uses our bodies to send us unique messages. You may have heard it said, “He makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.” That is intuition using your physical body to signal something may be wrong or needs your attention. It may be telling you the person or situation in question is unsafe. Intuition might be a tingle, a feeling in your stomach, or an unsettling emotion. It is intuition sending you a message.

Science or Spiritual?

To people like Gladwell, intuition and foreknowledge are scientific in nature. To those who believe in otherworldly existences, it is spiritual. While it may seem incompatible to forge a link between the common, everyday experiences of intuition and the trained and developed powers of a psychic, psychics tell us intuition is the foundation upon which psychic abilities are built.

A Worthy Compass

Regardless of where the truth lies on this issue, our culture actively encourages us to rely on rational judgment as the only true expression of reality. We know, however, that purely rational assessments aren’t always accurate. We have all experienced instances where emotional input has aided in the discovery of a truth or the reality of an event or situation. Intuition is a worthwhile guide for evaluating situations and informing decisions. It has the ability to take us to unexpected destinations without the benefit of logic.

Signs You’re Intuitive or Psychic

If you have ever had a gut feeling that turned out to be true or had a sudden impulse to do or not do something but later discovered you should have listened, you were using the intuitive insights with which we are all endowed. Given that intuition lives in the realm of the unexplained, you may be able to conclude (in a broad sense) that you already have the foundation for acquiring psychic abilities. All individuals are born with a tendency toward a psychic mind, whether they know it or not or believe it or not. Psychic abilities are an integral and important part (albeit a small part) of intuition. Here are some very specific indications you may be psychic:

  • Pay particular attention to their inner voices and listen to its urgings
  • Pay attention to their bodies and are not afraid to be mystical
  • May feel the illnesses, aching, pains or physical symptoms of others when near them
  • Are inspired to support those who they see as being intimidated, bullied or who are suffering
  • Make time for solitude and take advantage of opportunities to contemplate the mysteries of existence
  • Cherish creativity and put time into feeding that creativity
  • May experience ear ringing or odd unexplained body sensations
  • Rules and regimen are stifling to them and freedom is essential
  • Control of any kind is met with great resistance
  • Strict regime, procedure and guidelines can be a challenge
  • Awaken at the 2 am hour feeling restless, anxious or ready to get up
  • Crowded or loud, busy places are overwhelming
  • Psychic ability is in the family and/or generational
  • A natural affinity and connection with animals
  • Find themselves rooting for the losing team or the underdog in a situation
  • Observe everything around them and attempt to make sense of what they see
  • Pay attention to their dreams, have vivid dreams and understand truth can be found in the spirit world as well as the physical world

It is quite possible for individuals to make the conscious decision to develop, rekindle, or magnify the powers of their intuitive voices, their psychic minds. The path to the supernatural world of the psychic begins by expanding and fine-tuning intuition and then paying close attention to the seen and unseen worlds that surround us. Wayne Dyer, internationally renowned author and speaker on the topics of self-development and spiritual growth, like many in his field, believes current scientific investigation around the mysteries of matter and energy proves it is quite possible there is more beyond what our logical minds can consider.

No Surprise, Our Planet is Onboard the Psychic Train

For many, religion is the answer to universal truth and a connection with supreme intelligence. Current statistics report a majority of Americans believe angels and demons are active in the world. Eighty percent believe miracles happen, and 92 percent believe in God. To others, cultivating and establishing psychic abilities will aid in a search for the power of a universal mind and a universal spirit that unifies us all.

The acquisition of psychic abilities is not simply the pursuit of a psychic mind. It is more about embarking on a journey of self-discovery to awaken an innate desire to understand the universe and the unseen world. It is not a question of being more intuitive than anyone else, and it is not a question of being endowed with more psychic abilities than anyone else. It is only about you and whether or not you want to engage in an exploration of the spirit realm or acquire psychic abilities by becoming familiar with the practices of the psychic world.

Psychic Development Tool: 3 Techniques for Low Entity Removal

Low Vibration Energy Eviction & Removal 

Toxic, low vibration energies have no place in your life. You and you alone control what comes into your world, literally and energetically. This simple awareness will allow you to attract good experiences, people and energies going forward.

Now that we have that straight, let’s look at next steps. As a start, you must first understand how energy works. All things, even the tangible computer or phone you’re using to your read this is energy. You too, are made up of energy. People, thoughts and things around you effect your personal energy field in either a positive or a negative way. At all times, you are the helm. Nothing comes through that you don’t choose or desire. You control of the energy that you allow In turn, you control the energy you choose to hold on to.

What are darker forces, lower astral beings? Why are they here? How do we evict an entity? As there is light, there is dark. Today we’re talking all about this and you’ll learn three techniques available to you during your psychic development that will support you in keeping pure positive essence in your space at all times.

What Are You Feeding? A Wonderful Cherokee Story

A wise old man is talking to his grandson. He explains that there is a terrible battle between two wolves takes place every day inside all people.

These two animals symbolize two opposing forces. One is evil, the old man tells his grandson. It is anger. It is envy, greed, arrogance and sadness. It’s the feeling of inferiority and the ego. The other force is kindness, joy, love, hope, serenity, humility, compassion, and peace.

The grandfather explains that the two wolves battle within each of us every day.

When the young Cherokee boy asked his grandfather, which wolf will win the battle, the grandfather responded simply. “The one you feed will win.

Which “wolf” are you feeding?

Wherever you put your focus is what you will attract. Ask yourself, are you focusing on what’s good in your life – or are you letting toxic relationships, thoughts and things hold you back?

There is a layer of energy that surrounds your physical body. This energy field is called the aura. Do you feel out of sorts, not yourself, like something is in your space or even like you can’t function? This can be because this auric field is cluttered with energy gunk. You may not understand why lethargic feelings or defeated thoughts are present. You might even feel you are somehow bringing low energy as if you were a magnet for dark energy and/or negativity. So, caring for your auric field becomes as important as caring for your physical body. It will require taking your power back, cleaning your energy body and evicting low entities or energies.

The Necessity of Protection

While there is much that is positive about working with psychic Sense-Abilities, there are areas of caution. It is essential and compulsory that, when delving into the world of psychic phenomena, you recognize the need for spiritual, mental, and physical protection. Protection must be considered, not only for yourself but for the safety of your loved ones. There are, we regret to say, spirits of lower vibration, whose only reason for existing is to spread chaos and turmoil. They are spirits that want nothing more than to bring negative energy and negative situations into your life and
surroundings.

It is important to know, when you are dealing with spirits or working to connect with them, there are good spirits and not so good spirits. The difficulty inherent in this situation is that you may not always know (at least right away) with which type of spirit you are dealing. You won’t know the intention of a spirit until you make contact with it. Even if your goal is to connect with a spirit you already know is good, it is possible that a lower vibration spirit will intervene.

Steps to Remove Low Vibration Energy

  1. Say your prayer of protection and ask your Guides to help.
  2. Relax, close your eyes and take 5 deep breaths to relax your body. Breathe in through your nose and out your mouth. Bring your awareness to the sensations in your body and make note of the different sensations you feel.
  3. Now imagine a suspicious entity, or dark entity in your minds eye, or picture a fear or worry that has been plaguing you for quite some time. Remember you have more power than it does. Physical beings have more power than Spirit Beings. The dark forces feed off our energy and will try and create situations so you are sad, upset or angry. This provides a situation where the dark force can feed. The dark force may attempt to disrupt your visualizations by means of intimidating, and trying to frighten you. You are ever safe, protected in the golden divine energy of the Higher in this work. You are in charge and must be heard.
  4. Ask the dark force, or fear how long it has been with you and why. It’s okay to be curious. Tell it that it’s time to go back to the white light where it originally came from, and you will give it 5 seconds to choose to leave on its own, or that you will proceed with the removal.
  5. Demand that it never returns to you. It must listen to you.

Many times as we get rid of a dark force, it will manipulate our visualization to disrupt the process. You might also now try this now:

  1. Imagine that you have a bucket of “frozen energy”. Pour this over the head and body of the entity, so that it can no longer interfere. Now, the entity has no power to move, change or disrupt your visualization.

Or,

  1. Imagine a giant syringe and needle.
  2. Picture the syringe filling up with brilliant white light and tell the entity you are planning on injecting it with the needle. Usually, the entity or fear will disappear immediately. If you have a strong willed one present, he will still stick around and challenge you.
  3. Imagine the enormous needle entering the Spirit body and slowly squeezing the white light into it.
  4. Watch as the white light, engulfs the entity from head to toe. The entity is at peace now and is returning to the place it came from.

Congratulations on your first low vibration eviction! You will use any one of these technique on future clients to help them heal or in your dreams or during meditation to evict low vibration entities.

Some Homework for You!

Create a few techniques of your own using imagination on how to evict or get rid of a dark force, or lower astral entity. Spend 5 minutes using your new technique to get rid of one. When you see your third eye is clear of all beings, you know you have succeeded. Feel your new found strength of being able to rid yourself of them anytime you want. And know that you are also able to help clients rid themselves of these pests.

Always use the golden divine energy of the Higher and ask your Guides for assistance. Be sure to return to this blog post after this assignment and let us know how this worked for you!

Student Question: Does thinking about the entity invite them back?

Good question! No, it sure does not.

The thought of the low energy does not invite it back in the strictest sense, particularly short fleeting or momentary thoughts. Darker entities don’t just show up because you think of them. Your continued thought and worry, over time, however brings the low energy ‘in general’ to your space and you will then see it manifest in a variety of ways like repeated negative people in your life, or one thing after the other going wrong. The important thing is to catch yourself after that fleeting thought. Then, honor yourself for catching yourself: you cannot shift away from something that is not serving you if you can’t see you’re doing it. So, bravo to you for catching yourself in that brief thought of the low energy! Then, simply shift into new and better thought of what you do desire.

The Protection Rose to Support You

As you proceed along your path of universal connections and higher planes of existence, you will be more aware of the myriad of spiritual energies around you. You will be exposed to new realms of being, and as a consequence, you will become more sensitive to their vibrations. This increase in awareness will bring increased vulnerabilities. Therefore, it is necessary for you to create a safe space, where positive energy can dwell and negative energy is forbidden.

Practicing psychics develop a protection rose or a prayer of protection to send a message to the universe of their strong intentions to be protected. A prayer of protection is personal and is often repeated aloud. Its power is in the strong intention of the practitioner. It is a prayer said before starting the day and before any reading or energy work takes place.

While a protection prayer is a verbal expression—alerting negative spirits to keep their distance—a protection rose is a meditative energy tool that reinforces a clear boundary against negative energy. It acts as a filter to prevent energies not your own from accessing your space. It is a defense mechanism to ensure safe and protected sessions.

To create a protection rose, you must first envision a rose clearly in your mind’s eye. See the colors and smell the aroma. See the beauty of it from the ground up, along the green stem, onto the shape and texture of the leaves, to the actual shape and form of the rose petals. The vision of your rose, and the pure essence of energy it imparts, will invade your space, protecting you with a strong, unfettered connection to the universe. Your mind cannot tell the difference between reality and imagination. Because of that, the unencumbered vision of your rose actively acts as your energy protector.

Steps to Create a Protection Rose

  1. Envision a vibrant, colorful rose, and make it any color you desire.
  2. Make it as tall and wide as you are.
  3. Place it just outside your aura.
  4. Ground it to the center of the earth.
  5. State your intention for the rose to act as a filter to keep pure, positive energy in your space and to keep other energies in their spaces.

Daily Energy Balance and Clarity

Now that you have three techniques to remove low energies and/or entities and the Protection Rose to support your work, let’s talk about how to maintain positive flow and balance in your daily life going forward.

Keep in mind that low energies are acquired over time. They don’t just show up! Rather, over time they arrived and you just didn’t catch them! So they stuck with you, like sludge, and grew. Consider this to ensure positive energy surrounds you at all times:

It’s All About the Self Talk

Think about what you’re saying. If you say “I don’t want another bad day” you just brought it to you. How? By saying “No” I don’t want that particular thing it’s just like saying yes to it. You said yes to a bad day by the mere fact that you gave attention to a bad day. So, say yes to what you do want! Fuel the good wolf and say things like:

Life is good
I intend happy
I have time to do all I need to today
I feel safe and loved today and every day

Remove Challenging People

You know these people. They feel heavy. When you’re around them you feel heavy too. You find yourself with a general sense of not liking how you feel –  before, during and after you’re with them. Perhaps they influence you to do things or make choices you normally would not. Catch yourself in the midst of these feelings and consider some clean up in your world! Take your power back from anyone in your life who is toxic, be they family, friends, or even professional career relationships. Make a conscious choice to employ your Protection Rose while near them and make sure you’re near them as little as possible.

If you’re needing to do an energy releasing meditation to support you in setting healthy energy boundaries with people around, from your past or present try my Energy Cord Releasing Meditation! It is indeed possible that you could be carrying past residual low energy that it’s time to get rid of.

Troubling Places, Experiences or Events

There are things in your life that bring you joy. Think for a moment. What are they? A wonderful dinner with family? Yoga class? Your pets? An exciting musical performance? The laughter of your son or daughter? As you think of these experiences notice your energy. Do you feel peace? Ease? Comfort? Gratitude? Abundance? Of course you do! Now, think of the things, places or experience in your day or life that don’t bring joy. Loud busy stores or an airport? Traffic jams? A crisis in the news? What are your emotions now as you think of these places or experiences? Anxiety, heaviness, fear and grief might be some emotions that overtook you as you just simply thought of this. Having done this simple thought exercise consider two things: First, your immediate emotional response to the joy vs. lack of joy experiences. You likely went from happy to sad in seconds as you merely thought of these experiences. This should be clear proof to you how powerful your emotions are influenced by thought it just a few moments! Second, realize that you actually may be inviting in negative energy without even knowing it! When you have been driving in a traffic jam for example, you can take the emotion of that experience with you to the extent that it lingers with you all day. Be sure to clear your energy after having been at these chaotic places and/or events and if possible, limit your time in them.

It’s the good wolf we want to thrive! In the spirit of the good wolf, make a list of all the things in your life that fill you up and bring you joy. Grow your Good Wolf Joy List!

Wrapping It Up

The universe will honor your effort and your intention to be protected. It doesn’t take long for you to establish a daily routine of envisioning your life and the energy around you safe, well and full of love and light as your daily norm. Remember that any routine is an ongoing process that only becomes a habit with practice and consistency.
