We all have moments in our life when we need a little help. Sometimes guidance comes from loved ones, both alive and those who have crossed over, but we can also find support and advice from our spirit guides. These guides are our friends when we need companionship, our mentors when we need guidance, and our guardians when we’re in situations where we need help. Some of these guides are with us always, while others only accompany us temporarily or when we’re in specific situations. Each can manifest as male or female, and appear differently for each person.
Best Friend Guides
Our closest of these allies are described as “best friend” guides. They are with you most often, aiding during times of stress, providing comfort, helping you make choices and reminding you to laugh and enjoy life. They have a deep understanding of what you’re dealing with.
Scholar or Wisdom Guides
When we need to teach, study, learn, or educate we find ourselves in the company of our “wisdom” or “scholar” guide. Always with insight, knowledge, and advice that you can trust completely, this guide is your mentor in all things intellectual.
Body Balance Guide
The “body balance” guide is there to nudge you toward choices that are good for your body. This guide is a close ally to healers and energy workers, but is more a voice of reason dealing with fitness, medical care and diet.
We sometimes find ourselves in dangerous or unhealthy situations. This is where the “guardian” guide comes in. They are our spirit warriors and protectors, delivering messages of warning. Call on them when you are afraid, and they will defend you.
Developing a relationship with our spirit guides is rewarding, and while we all have the knowledge inside of ourselves to know what is right for us, it can be of great comfort to know that we’re never alone.

Fundamentals of Psychic Development: What Are Spirit Guides?
Connecting with your spirit guide is a relatively simple process but one that can confuse those who are new to meditation and spirituality. As a psychic medium let’s go over some ways you can connect to your spirit guide quickly and easily as well as how to communicate with them more clearly. By learning about your spirit guides, you can work with them in psychic abilities training to increase and open your abilities.
Spirit guides are entities designed to help and advise you on this physical plain of existence. Your guides—everyone has more than one—were given to you before you were made flesh. They are non corporeal beings, assigned by the universal mind to travel alongside you while you exist on this earth. They are responsible for helping you navigate your way through life, expand your realization of your higher self, and make your journey easier. Spirit guides advise, nudge, comfort, and of course, guide. Their purpose is not to do things for you or make your decisions; they are there just to guide and inform. They are kindly entities, specifically concerned with your good—nothing more.
There are spirits of the departed, like loved ones who have passed on, engaged in helping and guiding, but they are not spirit guides. Spirit guides are different and should not to be confused with guardian angels or angels of any kind. The best explanation for spirit guides is to say they are entities, composed of energy, which do not have substance and which are often directed to aid your higher self.
Spirit guides are uniquely able to help where intuition is not. This is because spirit guides know all that has been and is now going on in your life. They are entities that may or may not work in concert with other guides on your behalf. They may appear to have male or female characteristics, but they are neither male nor female. Those characteristics are there to aid your human understanding and to give you something with which you can easily identify.
As I Develop My Psychic Abilities How Can Communicate With My Spirit Guides?
Spirit guides also communicate in a unique way. They come across through thoughts—strong thoughts. They send messages in the same way messages are sent to Spirit Interactors (mediums). Know that their connection with humans is always gentle. You should think about it as receiving a message unlike intuition or mental insight. It is stronger and more directed than that. The best way to think of spirit guide connections is to think of them as concerned messages with direction.
Spirit guide relationships are also unique. They are relationships you should cultivate as any other meaningful and important relationship requiring nurturing and caring. A spirit guide relationship needs the same level of commitment and time any significant relationship requires. The more time and attention you give to cultivating open lines of communication with your guide, the stronger your relationship will become.
Your best friend guide will be your main guide. It will be the one with whom you will spend most of your time and have most of your interaction. This guide is similar to a friend. It behaves like a
companion, bringing comfort, laughter, and joy. It is around to remind you to handle situations with kindness and diplomacy. It is there to remind you to take a breath when things go wrong and to be patient with things difficult to change. This guide advises when choices involve your happiness. It is believed that this guide has lived a human life; because of this, it understands all you are experiencing and what the outcomes of decisions may be.
If you need a little boost to balance your day or to reignite your clarity of thought, your best friend guide is the one to help. If you find yourself a bit down about, expect your best friend guide to appear and prompt you to rethink your situation. It will remind you to laugh.
Remember: your best friend guide is always present.
The job of your guardian guide is to keep you aware, forewarned, and safe. This guide often comes with messages of caution and warning. Think of the guardian guide as your chief protector. If you have a feeling cautioning you, it is probably your guardian guide, instructing you to be careful.
Wisdom or Scholar Guide
The wisdom or scholar guide is the teacher. If it were a being living on earth, it might take on the form of a wise old man with profound insights. It might be an individual with incomparable wisdom, whom you would find easy to trust. If you have questions about learning, education, or philosophy, this is the guide who will assist you. It is the spiritual guru, versed in education and learning.
We have only one physical body, and it is sacred. The body-balance guide is concerned with your health and wellness—your diet, exercise, and medical care. If you hear a voice advising, “That is not a good choice for your body,” listen. It is your body- balance guide giving you a nudge.
Short Term Guides
It is possible to ask the universe for short-term guides to help you. These are guides with a particular skill or information. If you are writing a book, then you may want to call on a guide skilled in that area. If you are preparing for a test, you may need a guide with expertise in that particular field of study.
How to Make Initial Contact with Your Spirit Guide
To establish first contact with your spirit guide, find a quiet area and sit in a relaxed position. This is necessary to achieve the meditative state where you and your spirit guide will meet for the first time.
At this point you’ll state a prayer to invite your spirit guide to contact you. An example would be something along the lines of “Spirit guide I invite you into my space. I would like to establish a dialog of open, clear communication with you.”
Once you’ve sent the invitation you must listen and trust your spirit guide to contact you. Remember, you must be patient. This is a high vibrational relationship and communication may not be clear at first. The key is to not try too hard and let messages and guidance come naturally.
Your Spirit Guide’s Name
I’m often times asked by my clients how I can know my spirit guide’s name. To know your spirit guide’s name simply ask them during mediation and trust the first name that comes. Keep in mind that knowing your spirit guide’s name is not always of importance and some people communicate with their guide their whole life without knowing their name.
All kinds of spirit guides, as helpful as they are, can’t and won’t make decisions for you. They’re available only to assist you. There is a conundrum about the effectiveness of guides. Because we have a deep, intuitive knowledge about what is right for us and what is right to do, we don’t always need a voice outside of ourselves—spirits, spirit guides, or anyone else—telling us what to do. But because human beings tend not to obey those things they know to be right, other entities often need to intervene to reinforce the necessity for doing what is right. Insecurity over a decision may not be valid. Dig deep within, and the choice will always be clear. Just remember to make choices that meld with your own goals and needs—not the goals and needs of others. The good news is that if you think you need the advice of a guide, you can have one whenever you choose.

When our loved ones pass away, they often attempt to send us messages for a variety of reasons. Messages can come through a session with a psychic medium or you can receive them on your own. But, you want to know what to look for. Also, Spirit wants to ensure we know they are at peace and they even help safeguard us in certain situations. Signs can come from many different sources, but typically rely on our standard five senses as well as our sixth sense.
You don’t have to be a psychic medium to receive messages from a spirit or a loved one who has passed over to the other side. Signs and symbols from our loved ones happen regularly and in a number of different ways. Once you open the door to those signs and symbols, you will realize they are not just coincidental happenings. Messages come from loved ones in the following ways: Electricity One of the easiest ways spirit come to us is through electricity. Electricity acts as a conductor for spirits. When lights flicker, computers and televisions randomly shut off and on, light bulbs burst, telephones die, and other physical phenomenon occur for no apparent reason, take notice. It may be a spirit attempting to communicate. Stop and take a moment to ask yourself which of your loved ones might be trying to reach you.
Sight, sound, and smell are three main ways our friends and relatives can communicate from beyond our realm. Of course, we can sometimes see and hear strange things around our home, in our workplace, and virtually anywhere we go throughout the day. It is quite possible that these are signs from our loved ones. Some people capture a familiar scent of flowers, perfume, cologne, or another aroma that would be typical for a person that has crossed over.
The Most Unique Way Spirit Interacts & Brings Psychic Messages
The most unusual sense that we can use to communicate with people from beyond the grave is a peculiar feeling or inexplicable sensation that someone or something is near us. This is usually a comforting and relaxing feeling that lasts only briefly, but leaves a lasting impression.
Dreams, electromagnetic shocks, and unusual occurrences related to electricity or objects are some of the common physical manifestations that our loved ones use to make their presence known. Flashing lights, short bursts of electricity or sudden blackouts are often reported within a family home shortly after someone passes away. Every representation is a welcome sign from loved ones who simply want us to know that they are still thinking of us.
Dreams are one of the best ways to connect with and receive messages from spirits. If you desire to connect with loved ones, simply ask them to come and visit you before you go to bed at night. Then, expect they will come. Don’t try too hard; trust they have heard you and will approach when they are ready. Pay attention to the colors, symbols, words, and people in your dreams. You will know your loved one is communicating because the dream will be more vivid than usual.
You may simply feel the presence of a loved one. You may experience a warm feeling or a strong sense that your loved one is nearby. You may feel a chill or a light touch on your shoulder that forces you to turn, finding no one there. It is quite possible that this touch is just one of the ways a spirit is signaling its presence.
Smell is a strong and powerful way a spirit may choose to communicate. You may experience the smell of a great aunt’s cologne or a grandfather’s pipe tobacco. You may even smell odors of shared times and events. These smells may present themselves at the oddest times, signaling the presence of a spirit that wants to be noticed.
Thinking of Them
Recalling or thinking about a departed loved one is an excellent indication that a spirit is communicating with you. This is especially true if the thoughts are strong and happen at an unusual time or in an unusual place. It is quite likely that a loved one is thinking of you at that very moment or coming to let you know he or she is nearby. Our loved ones on the other side know exactly what they are doing, and they have the ability to be at the right place at the right time.
We are often presented with what might be called a unique, synchronistic event. Be aware of the message. There really is no such thing as coincidence. If you have ever thought of a loved one, are then reminded of favorite song you shared, and later that day, heard it on the radio, it may be the interface of a loved one.
Do you see numbers that seem to repeat themselves? Do clocks stop at a certain time? Do license plate numbers have a particularly important sequence? Do you see a loved one’s birth date routinely showing up? It may be the obvious nudge of an important spirit.
The ways in which our loved ones communicate are as varied and complicated as their personalities. There is no one way for that communication to happen. It can be any one or all of those mentioned above. No matter what means is used to get through to you, it is important not to discount the happening. Be mindful of so-called coincidences. Listen, and open yourself to their needs and ways to interact with you.

Atem is the German word for breathing. It is derived from Sanskrit word “ayāma,” meaning to extend or draw out. The breath is formless. Meaning, it is not an object, has no shape, nor is it tangible. This is why being aware of how you breathe is one of the best ways to bring space into your life.
Breathing is often said to be one of the most subtle and seemingly insignificant phenomena. It was Nietzsche who remarked it is the ‘least thing’ that makes up the ‘best happiness.’
Being aware of how you breathe propels you into the present moment and it is the doorway to inner transformation. Why? Because when you are conscious of how you breathe, you become present and are led to higher consciousness.
It isn’t possible to think and be fully aware of and present with your breathing. Try it now. You will see that conscious breathing stops the mind but not to the extent that you are moved into a daze, but rather to a heightened alertness.
Giving attention to your breathing, even if only for a few seconds, creates gaps of space – pockets of peace of mind where incessant thinking ceases to be. In time, the gaps increase on their own and we discover inner space more consistently.
Be aware of your breathing right now. Can you feel the sensation of your breath? Feel the air moving in and out of your lungs and body. Notice how your chest rises and falls with each breath.
Just one conscious breath – a breath taken with mindfulness – is enough to make space, when in moments before, there was relentless mind chatter and thought, one after the other after the other. Breathing brings this to a standstill. A few conscious breaths at various moments in your day will bring space into your life. It replaces thinking.
Breathing occurs naturally and gracefully and should not feel like work. The deeper intelligence in the body is the driving force. All you have to do, as you become more aware of it, is to watch it happen. Notice the gentle pause as your out-breath moves to its end, just prior to taking a breath inward again.
Many of us unknowingly have very shallow breath. This is not our natural way of breathing. The more you are aware of your breathing, you begin to re-establish your breathing at a natural depth and full expansion.
Try this to find stillness:
When you notice you are constantly thinking, feeling rushed, anger, tension, grief, or even a compulsive need (smoking, drinking, TV watching, over eating) of some kind, simply stop and take three breaths. This instantly generates presence and awareness. Can you feel the subtle sense of aliveness rush through your entire body as you do this?
Then, for a few minutes, be aware of the low vibration emotion itself (or compulsive urge) as an energy field inside you. Consciously feel that emotion or the compulsive need to physically or mentally take part in the compulsive behavior. Be an observer of it, watch it. Seeing it as separate from you releases its power over you as you come to realize it is not you.
Then take a few more conscious breaths. You may feel the emotion or compulsive urge disappear. You might feel the emotion is still there and you can’t help but feel it. This is okay. Don’t make it into a problem. Rather, make the emotion a part of your awareness and practice observing it as mentioned above. As awareness of the emotion grows and as you see it as not you, but separate from you, in time it will weaken and disappear.
Most people are so distracted by their thoughts they can no longer feel the aliveness that their breathing brings. So then, the bridge delivering them to their innate wellbeing escapes them. Whenever you can, whenever it comes to mind in your day, center on your breathing. It is more spiritually transformative than any book, course, coaching or learning of any kind. And, the expense is nil, save for a few priceless moments of time.
However, if you are feeling overwhelmed and need help with your breath work, then bring conscious breathing into your life with my Summer Stillness Special.
One aspect of the foundation of any psychic development or clairvoyant program is the understanding of energy, the types and how energy works for you. Understanding the powerful art of psychic energy, along with the sixth chakra (third eye) and your clairabilities you will swiftly expand your psychic awareness and functioning.
Today, we learn about psychic development tools of grounding to maintain spiritual equanimity and replenish your energy. You will begin to use Grounding to focus your creative life force energy to create for yourself.
There are three types of energy: auric energy, cosmic energy, and earth energy.
Auric energy is energy generated by conscious, thinking human beings. It is the energy we know as aura. Humans are a combination of soul (auric) energy, earth energy, and cosmic energy. Psychics call this personal energy combination a PSI signature.
Cosmic energy exists in the cosmos. Cosmic energy is energy generated by the universal mind. It is the force that functions throughout the universe. It is the energy in charge of universal order and chaos. Psychics often visualize this energy as a warm, peaceful, white light. It is an energy infinite in nature but easy to detect and identify. This is the energy we acquire when we refer to feeling energized, invigorated, or rejuvenated.
Earth energies are those energies emanating from the core of the planet and Mother Nature. This energy is present in every stone, tree, or blade of grass. It is in every plant and every animal. It is energy psychics use to ground themselves when they perform any type of energy work. It is the energy found in the nucleus of an atom, in the force of thunder, in the feeling of the air. Everything in the universe is comprised of this energy—energy that flows naturally, without constraints.
Which Energies Do Psychics Use?
Humans are always making use of all three energies. We use them without being aware we are using them. It is part of our daily routine, like using cosmic energy when we sleep to re-energize or bodies and minds.
Psychics also use all three energies. But they use them in a deliberate way and with a conscious knowing. If you are an empath, you may be taking advantage of auric energies to connect with people, earth energies to receive messages from your surroundings, and cosmic energy to transfer information via telepathy. Acknowledging and accepting the forces of energy are essential to being a psychic. They are essential to develop the power of your psychic connections and to strengthen your overall Sense-Abilities. We radiate our feelings, thoughts and spiritual awareness through our aura. It is the sometimes visible “mist” of color and light that surrounds people and objects.
You can cleanse your aura and your entire emotional energy body with deep breathing exercises, swimming or showering, or taking a purifying bath with sea salts, which absorb both physical and energetic toxins. Water is a great conductor of energy and will help dissolve whatever negative emotions you’re feeling. Cleansing your aura daily will help to keep your energy clear.
The Benefits of Reading Psychic Aura Energy
If you find yourself desiring more energy, clarity, peace of mind or over all well-being then you want to consider delving deep into learning about your aura. As you explore the workings of your auras you will learn about extraordinary capabilities about our human energy field. You will discover how to strengthen and cleanse your energy auric field, two very essential tools for any beginning or veteran psychic or energy worker. In the study of your aura you will tap your psychic powers and sensory perception to actually see and sense auras of others. Many psychics and intuitives are over sensitive and become like a sponge for outside energies. In the psychic world this is know as psychic vampirism. As you work with your aura, you will begin to develop your psychic and spiritual self-defense, auric protection, and self-reliance.
As a psychic it is paramount that you maintain balance, clarity, and clear focus within your energy field. As you begin to learn to see your aura and the aura of others, you’ll swiftly release and even heal lower, heavy vibrations around you that are not serving you. Most profoundly, from a very empowered space you’ll learn to sever psychic energy cords and ties so that you can maintain the most harmonious relationships! Learn how to do this now in this powerful Energy Cord Releasing Meditation!
We are born with the natural ability to see auras, but tend to lose that ability as we get older. It’s not considered a normal ability in our culture, so children grow up thinking there’s something wrong with their eyesight, and suppress their ability to see auras have a peek at this website.You can rediscover that ability. Relax as you practice this, and don’t have any preconceived notions about what an aura will look like. Some people see a golden glow around people and objects, others see colors or different levels of light. Whatever you see is fine. You may find that you can auras peripherally. Many psychically sensitive people see visiting spirits or ghosts peripherally, as our logical left-brain doesn’t rule our peripheral vision the way it does our straight-ahead vision. The aura will be most visible at its core, which is inside the body and extending to an inch or two outside of it.
Follow this process to practice seeing auras:
Soften your gaze. Relax your hands and hold them out in front of you, palms facing up.
Concentrate for a minute on an object—a salt shaker, a pen or one of your hands, for example.
Take in the object and the space around it. Now relax and look away. You will probably see a sort of “impression” in the air left by that object. You’ll see both the object and the aura around it—there will be a sort of haze or fuzzy space around where the object was. You may see auras more clearly when you’re not wearing eyeglasses.
Keeping your gaze softened and relaxed, and look back at the object. Try to see the haze around it. You may only see it in your mind’s eye at first rather than your physical eyes, which is fine.
Begin practice this on people and objects by softening your eyes and looking at them, not directly, but taking in the entire scene they’re in at once. Or look at someone’s nose and forehead—the aura can then become visible to you peripherally.
Keep practicing, knowing this is a natural ability you already have, and that it will come back to you!

Psychic medium explains that animal totems may present for long or short periods of time in our lives. They are directly connected to what is presenting now in your life and/or to lessons that are meant for you.
Tune into whether or not the relationship with your animal totem is meant for a number of days or years. Let this powerful animal relationship lead you forward in terms of new knowledge or awareness about your core traits. Animal totems might be presenting to teach you through emotional aspects such as strength, patience, insecurity, fear, confidence or anger.
The Power of Animal Totems
In short, animal totems help us to learn about our ultimate truths in life. They may present in meditative space and/or dream space bringing much-needed lessons. It is also common that animal totems are a spiritual tool for you. I.e., when you see this animal it is your spiritual reminder to Ground. The time frame in which a particular animal totem is in your life directly correlates with how well you recognize, learn and then incorporate the knowledge into your life.
Be mindful that your animal totem/s (and we do have more than one) have chosen you! They will present when you are fully and completely ready to accept and realize the lessons in their coming.
Most often, your animal totems are wild animals as opposed to domesticated. This is not always the case but often is. Use your gift of Claircognizance (clear knowing) to discern this. You will know there is a higher knowing message for you when the animal totem presents because there is an unmistakable familiar knowing connected to the presence of the animal. Absolute honor, awareness and respect should be expressed as you are now ready for a new segment in your journey. What a gift!
In time, your relationship with these animal totems grows and as this happens deep trust of the messages come. Eventually take on those imbued characteristics and this assists you in understanding, on a deeper level, the animal kingdom, becoming one with the energy.
Consider these questions as this will assist you in finding your animal totem:
Is there an animal that captivated you as a child?
Do you feel a deep connection to a particular animal?
What animals do you see repeatedly?
Consider animal traits/characteristics. Which animal most closely associates with your personality?
Which animals do you recognize that you have near you in your home or work space in pictures, song, and art work?
Use Your Psychic Ability and Connect With Your Animal Totem
As you begin to discover your animal totems, try this meditation:
In a relaxed and upright position, quiet your mind for 10 to 15 minutes then simply state out loud to the Universe, “I would like to meet my animal totem.”
Let yourself be a stream of consciousness, naturally allowing information to float in. Be an observer and just watch what animals or bits of the animal kingdom or even nature float in and out. Remember to use all of your senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, smell and feelings while in this space.
What do you see? Is a forest, stream, mountain top, den or nest of some kind presenting? You may be taken to a region or directly to the home of your animal totem. Tune into the richness of the landscape. Notice the colors, shapes, sizes of things here. Is there running water? Notice the clear and pure nature of the running water. Are there ripples in the water created by anything? Now, smell the fragrance of that place. What does it smell like here? What season is it? Is it Spring? Fall? Winter? What does that smell like? Touch the earth, rocks or trees here. What do they feel like? Is there snow, water, or sand? Reach out and touch this too.
Now, give attention to the sounds near you. Do you hear leaves crunching as an animal approaches? Do you hear chirps, flutters, swooshing, animal calls or other sounds? Animal totems may present in various sizes so be attentive to just the slightest and smallest animal. This may even be a newborn animal of some kind. Is there a sound from this newborn?
When you are ready, ask your animal totem to appear. They may do so in the distance or right in front of you. They might also present clearly and very close you. They may even land gently on your shoulder or hand. They understand your feelings. Now, listen and watch for your animal totem’s messages. Open your heart and mind to greet your animal. Allow the animal, lessons and any messages to arrive at its own pace. Be present with this for several minutes.
The animal totem may be fleeting, meaning they come and go quickly. This is okay. Trust that necessary connection was made.
When you are ready, thank your animal totem and send energy of appreciation. Trust in the relationship and know that your relationship has started and is continuing to grow.
Are you feeling at peace with your choices? Do you feel like you’re second-guessing yourself regarding a decision or choice you made about your life? Do you feel like a choice you’ve made was a mistake? How do we take seeming mistakes or bad choices and view them through the lens of necessary, positive and even divinely brought? Step into your true voice and release your critical voice as you consider these questions:
Whose idea was it that it was a bad choice?
Do you really believe this was a bad choice or did someone tell you it was? Take a moment now to think of a time when you or someone you know made a choice and despite the opinions of naysayers, stuck with it. In essence, they trusted their own gut and the choice subsequently turned out perfectly fine or even better than fine.
The lesson here perhaps is that there will always be someone who will say things should have been different. Resist accepting someone else’s darker cloak about the choice unless you believe that too.
2. Was this the best choice you could have made at the time?
There is a good chance it was. Consider the choice of marriage at an early age that didn’t last. Often a 20 year old doesn’t know what they might at 40 years old. Regardless, we always do the best we can at each juncture in our lives.
What’s more, you know your choice was the best one you could have made because it was the choice you made at that time. A Course in Miracles teaches that, ‘’your choices are honorable because they’re your own.” Love yourself to the extent that, even if it was not the best choice, it was your choice. There is no shame in putting your best foot forward even if you feel you somehow fell a bit short. You gave it your best shot in the moment with what you had. Find peace with that knowing.
3. What good has come out of the choice?
Consider the good that has or might come about as a result of the choice. Even if you thought it was a minus at the time, ask yourself how you can turn it into a plus now. Maybe you grew from this? Nothing is entirely bad. In all good there is bad and in all bad there is good. Have a little fun and reframe the experience. Extrapolate what good came of it or what good may come of it going forward. Ask yourself, “Is there is any way possible this can work in my favor?”
4. What did you learn?
If you learned something, then there is no possible way it was a bad choice. In the words of Eckhart Tolle, “Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”
In essence, the benefit of what you learned far outweighed the burden of the seeming poor choice. You might have felt you lost in some way yet on a deeper level you gained tenfold in wisdom – a priceless education.
5. What part of you is saying this was a mistake?
That part of your mind that thinks the choice was bad or a mistake is pure ego. The very intelligent Universe however knows exactly how this seeming mistake fits in perfectly. This experience would not have been brought to you if you were not needing it. As it is so aptly been said, “your arms are too short to box with God.”
Is It This or Is It That? How to Tell Psychic Images and Messages from Mere Thought
Intuitive and psychic messages are different than a thought. As your ability grows, you will be able to tell the difference between the two. Here are some valuable tips to get you started!
As your logical left brain is in motion and thinks, your conscious mind is doing the work. Your conscious mind and thoughts are one. This is conscious thought and you are one with it. You might even find yourself overtaken by it. An example may be when you are organizing an event and all the surrounding details and plans related to it as well as your attendance of it in the coming weeks.
When you are receiving psychic information your all-knowing consciousness is at work – your right brain. In this space, you are an active observer of whatever is presenting in much the same way you observe the floating in and out of information at the beginning of meditation. Or, as you watch an event unravel, but are disengaged from it emotionally. As an observer of the information you are not creating it as you do in your thinking, logical mind space.
To enhance your intuition, focus on seeing yourself separate from anything that comes in. Resist temptation to interpret. Just look from the outside, in. Be the observer. Messages of psychic and intuitive inspiration come from nowhere, are spontaneous-feeling and most often have little to do with what you are thinking about in the given moment. They are gentle, and find you.
Psychic information and insights are of a high vibrational frequency and will transcend ego. If you notice low vibration thoughts of fear, worry, doubt or self-sabotage as you tune into this ability, you are not connected with your right brain/higher knowing. Also, it may take time to understand the messages you do receive. This is okay. Let the knowing come when it is ready to.
Psychic Information or Message Characteristics
Psychic information, impressions, images or senses are void of ego. They are gentle and natural, almost as if they float in effortlessly. You may notice they are also without emotion and seem impersonal, or unbiased. They are most certainly neutral feeling in nature. That psychic thoughts and downloads are without intensity of emotions can cause us to miss them. What is unique though about psychic messages is that there is a deep seated, back-end sense of certainty, ease, calm and peace that does accompany them and so that extent we have an internal and natural knowing of their validity. Psychic information can repeat (see Rule of Three below) and might even seem silly to our left brain. If you find yourself saying “Oh, that’s ridiculous, that couldn’t possibly be” then take a closer look. Psychic thoughts may also come in randomly in a scattered sort of way, unconnected to anything ongoing around presently.
You know you are experiencing psychic insight because the information will feel like it has come from a higher consciousness. You might also then notice a feeling of being compelled to put that inspiration into fruition by taking action.
Not Psychic Information or Message Characteristics
Thoughts we receive that are not psychic in nature we call mental noise. They are remnants and aspects of the interpretive function of the left brain. The left brain is at work here, telling you what the sensory information is and often jumping to conclusions. For example, I write Eiffel Tower and you begin imagining it. You’re left brain is now at work coming to a conclusion of what it thinks the Eiffel Tower looks like.
Some additional characteristics letting you know you are in left brain and you are not receiving psychic information:
The image or information you are getting presents one after the other in a linear way. Meaning, one thought, after another and another. This is the way our left brain works, linearly, one thought connected to another. A string of thoughts.
If you find yourself in the act of hesitating and/or saying to yourself “Uh, mmm, or hmm” then the very next thing will be left brain non psychic information. The action of hesitation means thought is coming next. These mentioned verbal expressions are also precursors to receiving left brain information. They are telling you the left brain is at work and a logical process is happening. Remember, right brain data is random, gentle, finds you, and drops in with no aforethought.
Left brain thought can evoke emotions.
Left brain thought is often nothing new to us and reinforces what we already know, believe or expect to be true.
If it’s from the left brain we usually aren’t surprised by it nor is there originality to the information.
How does Psychic Information Present?
Psychic information and messages may come to you in many ways. They can present in inspired ideas, dreams, through automatic writing, while drawing or playing a musical instrument. Often, messages present while in meditation or while giving or receiving intuitive or psychic readings. The way they present comes in two ways:
1.) Consciously: Messages from your psychic ability may present like a gut feeling. You sense that you just know something, yet you don’t know how. In these moments, when a gut feeling has presented you are often consciously aware of messages.
2.) Subconsciously: Messages may also be received unconsciously. Speakers, authors, and artists naturally use their gifts of intuition while in the depths of creating.
You may find that you consciously or unconsciously tap into the divine mind for creativity and inspiration. Both are fine.
Let’s Reflect on Your Own Psychic Download Experience Now
Think back now and consider the past few days. Was there a moment where messages of psychic insight may have been trying to present to you? Let that memory come in. Don’t look for it. Don’t search for it. Let it find you. Perhaps you had a feeling someone you had not seen for some time would call, and then they did. Did you find yourself saying, “I knew it” surrounding an event or incident of some kind? Was there an inner knowing decision that you made that turned out to be right? Did the perfect words or artistic creation come to you at just the right moment with a feeling of exuberance or excitement? Perhaps, out of what seemed like nowhere you received an inspired idea that resolved a particular issue of importance. These would each be examples of times when you were receiving psychic guidance, whether you knew it then or not.
Also, be mindful of the Three Times Rule. When you receive an intuitive message three times the message may be psychic related and your intuitive self trying to tell you something, in essence, your soul speaking to you. Do listen! As a simple example, you’re deciding whether to draw an eagle or lion for a special assignment in art class you just enrolled in and that you’re incredibly excited about. You’re absolutely torn because you have such an affinity for both gorgeous animals and really want to push yourself and do exceptional job on this assignment. Within 24 hours you’ve seen an eagle present in some fashion, by outright pure happenstance or even strange coincidence: on the cover of a magazine while sitting in the waiting room for an appointment, on a poster in the window storefront as you walk by on the way to lunch, and a friend mentions the eagle’s nest they found while on a hike. So, listen up and pay attention. If you get a message three times, then that’s your indication that the message is psychic or intuitive guidance!
10 Steps for Psychic Thought Exercise
Try this exercise to help you discern psychic thoughts from your own thoughts.
Think of a question you would like to receive psychic insight about.
Write it down in one clear and succinct sentence.
Now, write down any expectations, desires, worries, fears, possibilities and potentials or any other information that comes about this question.
As you are ready to receive psychic guidance be in a seated comfortable position with your bare feet on the ground. Now, breathe in and out. Inhale and exhale slowly for several breaths. Ask all tension, to-dos of the day, or concerns to leave. Make an agreement with your left brain that you’ll come back to the importance of life’s daily on goings when you are done.
Now, ask your question out loud as you continue to breathe. Give notice to any thoughts that present. Remember, you are seeking emotion free, simple, clear and concise data that comes to you and naturally floats in.
Once you have received the psychic information, write it down.
Give attention again to your breath. At this point, you may want to learn more about the psychic information you just got by now asking yet another specific question about it.
Continue to write down your psychic messages and thoughts as they present.
You will reach a point of knowing you have received all that you are needing to at this time.
Set the information aside. Come back to it the next day giving particular notice to any psychic insights or a-ha moments that surfaced during the exercise.
Resist the temptation to make sense of the meaning of the psychic message if you don’t understand it just yet. That will come in time. It is essential to allow the psychic thoughts and messages space and time to evolve and make themselves known to you with clarity.
Psychic thoughts are not straight-forward and this can seem confusing. When this happens, your psychic skills are not lacking. We don’t always grasp or make sense of psychic information right away. This is actually a sign to you that the information is psychic. So, try meditation on the thought as opposed to rationally understand it. The knowing of the message comes in time.
Once set the intention to receive psychic information , you will receive it. Understand that it will come in a divine time that is not always your time. This usually happens when we have let it go, released it and are not thinking about it and have move on to something else that is distracting us. This distraction is good and helps us release the waiting or holding tight energy of an answer we are fixated on or attached to. So go get busy doing something to quiet your left brain thinking mind. The psychic message and answer will naturally slip right in.

You may be tuning into the negative energy of someone near you who is annoyed! You are an energetic spiritual being having a human experience. Because of this, it is common that your body receives lower energies coming from others.

With 2014 upon us, we feel the natural energy of “out with the old, in with the new.” For many of us that means a compelling desire to create resolutions.
Are you determined to lose weight?
Is there a long overdue desire to stop smoking or even drinking?
Have you set the commitment to get that daily exercise in?
Perhaps you want to save some money and make better financial choices?
Do any of these resonate with you? You might find these are the same resolutions you make each year. While such decrees are wonderful steps forward filled with good intentions, they may only be focusing on an outside fix to solve an inner vibrational misalignment.
Here’s the secret: Instead of just changing the color of the shutters, it’s time to renovate the dwelling from the inside out. The secret to unlocking a life of peace and fulfillment is to focus on your inner self – a commitment to loving, accepting and embracing yourself as the perfect being you are.
As long as you are looking outside of yourself to make life better, you’re going about it the wrong way. Make friends and find peace with who you are right now and then the doors to your desires will open. Your successful New Year’s resolution begins with loving you first – fully and completely.
The first spiritual technique you can learn to help you create and manifest what you want is meditation. It helps quiet your mind of racing thoughts.
The reason this technique is so powerful is that when racing thoughts are storming through your mind, you will find yourself pulled in many directions why not try this out. Racing thoughts can lead you to confusion and make you feel you are spinning your wheels.
Meditation helps you gain clarity and what I call “a quiet mind” to help filter in thoughts of peace and acceptance.
Along with meditation, you can also learn how to ground your energy, and learn about running energy.
