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.

In Your Psychic Development Learn About the Types of Spirit Guides

Best Friend Guide

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.

Guardian Guide

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.

Body-Balance Guide

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.”
  3. 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.

Learn More with Psychic Development Training

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.

Psychic Medium Teaches You Secrets to Swiftly Tap Into Your Psychic Power of Claircognizance

Claircognizance & the Crown Chakra

Your seventh chakra houses your psychic power of Claircognizance. This is the gateway to this amazing ability that you were born with. The word clear is from the French word clair and cognizance from the word conoissance which mean ‘knowledge’. Hence, clear knowing.

The Crown Chakra is orange in violet in color. It assists us with our sense of knowingness and spirituality. This chakra offers us the opportunity to just know things without having to access our logical left brain, or intellectual self. In addition, this is the seat of our clear knowing ability.

Let’s begin opening this psychic gift together, now:

Take a moment now to see this vibrant violet colored chakra spinning with vivacious life force in a clockwise direction. Imagine it alive and well. As you begin to work with this chakra more and more, in time, you will begin to feel it. You might feel it now as you place your consciousness in this area. What are the sensations? Focus here and begin to tune into this chakra. Let your attention be present in this space for a few moments. This simple act is telling your Higher Self you are ready to open this fully.

How to Recognize Your Claircognizance Psychic Ability

If you are mainly Claircognizant, then there are certain things you would say. Pay attention to how you speak about things and you will notice whether you are mostly Claircognizant.

Here’s a few examples of Claircognizant language in comparison to Clairaudience:

“I knew you were going to do that!” as compared to “I hear what you are saying about that…”

“I just know she is going to do well on that project…” as compared to “I am hearing you say that she will do well on this project…”

If you speak with words that mainly use “I know” or I knew,” then you are mainly Claircognizant. You may even find that you have more than one Clairability you use in your language. This is common for you to have one or more Clairability that you glean psychic information from. As you learn more in psychic abilities training, you will grow in your Clairabilities and will be better able to discern with clairability is your strongest.

Psychic Development: Claircognizance vs. My Own Thoughts

Claircognizance is different than a thought. Today, you’ll learn how to tell the difference between a thought and claircognizant knowing. Here;s how:

  • 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 that plan to attend in the coming weeks.
  • In turn, when you are receiving clear knowing information from your seventh chakra, your all-knowing consciousness is at work. In this space, you are an active observer of whatever is presenting in much the same way you observed the floating in and out information at the beginning of meditation. As an observer of the information you are not creating it as you do in your thinking, logical mind space.
  • To enhance your claircognizance, 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 claircognizant inspiration come from nowhere, are spontaneous-feeling and most often have little to do with what you are thinking about in the given moment.

Claircognizance 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 clear knowing gift. It may take time to understand claircognizance messages. This is okay. Let the knowing come when it is ready to.

How the Psychic Power of Claircognizance Presents

Claircognizance 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. Messages from your claircognizance 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 consciously aware of messages.
  2. Messages may also be received unconsciously. Speakers, authors, and artists naturally use their gifts of claircognizance while in the depths of creating.

You may find that you consciously or unconsciously tap into the divine mind for psychic messages, creativity and inspiration. Both are fine. You know you are experiencing claircognizant insight because the information will feel like an idea 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.

Let’s practice together, now:

Take a moment now to consider your past few days where messages of knowing from your claircognizance may have tried to present to you. Let that memory come in. Don’t look for it. Don’t search for it. Let it find you. Did you have a feeling someone you had not seen for some time would call, and did? Did you find yourself saying, “I knew it” surrounding an event? Was there an inner knowing about a decision that you made that it was absolutely 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. As you consider that sense of knowing you had about this event that you’re recalling now, did you know this consciously or subconsciously? Consider other similar experiences and discover in which way you are most often receiving this sense of knowing.

Psychic Development: A Powerful Exercise to Begin Opening Your Claircognizance

  1. Find a quiet place to sit and relax. This meditation is best done in a sitting position or in an active walking position (if you have a peaceful place to walk with no other people around).
  2. Take several deep breaths and release each breath slowly through the mouth. Become quiet and serene. Now bring your attention to the thoughts in your mind. For one minute or so just mentally list each thought as you become aware of it. Notice how thoughts arise and then subside. See if you can notice where thoughts arise from and where they go to. See if you can become aware that this entire process seems to take place of its own accord, without you having to do anything, just as your breathing takes place without conscious effort. Return your attention now to your breathing again for a few breaths.
  3. For the next part of this meditation just come from a place of seeing or sensing that your thinking process is taking place naturally of its own accord and not inside your head. You have access to all the information in the Universe, though your own brain is designed to filter and limit what you are aware of. Since this is the case, you can learn to expand what your brain can bring to your own personal awareness very naturally.
  4. Now with your eyes open and journal handy, place your awareness on tomorrow and intend to access information about tomorrow. Let your eyes remain open but don’t attempt to focus on anything in particular, just be open to whatever you are now seeing without analyzing it. Take four breaths in slowly and exhale slowly. With each exhale send the intention to be open to access information about tomorrow. Now become still and notice the thoughts in your mind. With your journal write down all the impressions, pictures, thoughts or any other sensory data that comes into your awareness as you think about tomorrow. Let this process happen for a few minutes. Notice any strong impressions that come through, especially any recurring thoughts or impressions. Write these down in your journal. Don’t worry if any thoughts or impressions seem fanciful or don’t make sense to you. Filter out any thoughts that arise about things you already know involve tomorrow such as an appointment you have. Focus on information that isn’t related to what your mind has already stored for you about tomorrow’s events.
  5. Next, complete what you are writing and set your journal down. Once more today go back and repeat this exercise, writing down the impressions you get about tomorrow.

Tomorrow at the end of the day go back to your journal and notice whether any information you wrote down actually happened, came into your awareness or otherwise became significant. For example, you might find that you thought of Judy and then Judy called you the next day. Perhaps you saw the image of a fire and the next day you saw a news story about a forest fire. In your journal highlight or make notes about any of the things you wrote down yesterday that happened or became significant today. Doing this work regularly will begin to train your mind to work with the infinite information that is in the mental realm that exists everywhere and always and to which you can learn to tap into whenever you desire.

Day Dreams to Tap Into Your Psychic Power of Claircognizance

One day this week, pay attention to the little day dreams you find yourself falling into. Intuitive growth can be significantly enhanced through our day dreams. You will learn quickly that often the information coming through during a day dream can be relevant guidance for yourself, someone you will be seeing in the near future, regarding world events, or to spiritual or other kinds of questions you have been thinking about.

Day dreams happen when the conscious mind lets go for a little while because it is engaged in something—that’s why so often a day dream will occur right in the middle of doing a work project, driving or doing something else where your focus is maintained for a while.

Set the intention in the morning of doing this exercise, to be aware when you fall into a day dream and pay attention to the subject matter. Write down some notes and see what the day dreams meant for you. Was it about you, a future event, a friend or a client? Was it about an issue in your immediate family? Did it appear to make no sense at all?

Claircognizance Psychic Development for Beginners: Automatic Writing

One of the most helpful tools to use to develop your Claircognizance ability is automatic writing.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Ask the Universe a question you want to know about.
  2. State the question out loud.
  3. Write down what you notice coming to you. Make sure not to judge what is coming to you. Just write it down. If you see an image, you me feel a pull to draw it. If you are not receiving any images or words, think of a color and notice what information comes through it.
  4. Practice automatic writing three times on different sheets of paper.

You may notice that you feel like some of the information is wrong or is information you are not sure about. Be an observer of this feeling and know this is only ego. You can instead realize that this information has meaning and is helpful to you, but not let it stop you from moving forward in your psychic development.

Psychic Abilities Training! Develop Your Clairvoyance Using These Powerful Techniques

psychic development

Psychic Functioning: Sixth Chakra and Third Eye

According to psychic development expert, Michelle Beltran, rooted in your sixth chakra is your third eye. This is the gateway to your clairvoyance. The word clairvoyance is French and means clear seeing. If you have ever had a daydream then you have experienced what it’s like to use your clairvoyance. It really is that simple.

So, let’s try it now, together.

Take a moment, look around you and pick an item. Study the item for a moment, noticing all the details about it. Now, close your eyes and see it in your mind’s eye. As your eyes are now closed, look at the details of it in this new way. Visualize the color, shades of color, patterns and the texture. Are there particular shapes and sizes? As you do this you are recalling visually in a new and heightened way. This simple visualization is how it will feel to see clairvoyant images so remember this feeling. Images come naturally, gently and on their own time. It may feel very much like a daydream as images present for you.

Psychic Development Requires an Awareness of Our Ability

Are you mainly Clairvoyant?

If you are not sure whether clairvoyance is your main clairability, then notice what you say because your language holds clues to your main ability.

You may say:

“I see this as…” as compared to “I feel this is…”

“I see what you are saying…” as compared to “I feel you…”

If you use words with “see” more than “feel,” then you are predominantly Clairvoyant.

You may also find that you use other words from other clairabilities at times. This is normal because you may have more than one predominant sense that you use for your psychic abilities.

Blockages in Your Psychic and Intuitive Development

Sometimes clairvoyance can be blocked by fear. For example, if a person fears they may see something clairvoyantly that may scare them or that is unwelcome then this creates a block. Understand that your clairvoyance is a gift from the highest of good and love. So, before you step into this work be sure to find a good healthy perspective!

Linking With Your Third Eye

This simple exercise will assist you in opening up your third eye as it tells your left brain, “I am ready.”

1. Place any finger from your non dominant hand between your eyes and above the bridge of your nose then push up slightly toward the center of your forehead.  Rotate your finger to the left a few times, then to the right a few times.
2. Take a deep breath.
3. Imagine an eye opening wide here. This is where your third eye is located. See the details of this eye. Is it round or almond shaped? Are the lashes long or short? Is there color?
4. Be mindful of this wide open eye as you go through your day.

Psychic Abilities Training with a Reading Screen

Having a visual reading screen will help you see images and psychic impressions through your mind’s eye. A reading screen gives you a tool to see the pictures.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Take in a deep breath and close your eyes.
  2. Imagine you are sitting in front of a large movie screen. Provide the movie screen a grounding cord that extends from it to the earth’s center. It could be a roaring waterfall, a golden beam of light, or roots. Make the grounding cord whatever you want it to be.
  3. As you look at the screen, ask a question.
  4. Then let the answer come on the screen. Even if you get all white on the screen, that is still an answer. It is a color and holds a message for you. White is associate with light, purity, goodness and divinity.

Just relax and let the images come to the screen. You may see a flash of images and this is okay, even if you are not sure what these mean. As you practice more and more, you will be able to easily interpret what you see.

A Psychic Tool: The Truth Rose

Sometimes, we want to know the truth about matters in our life. The truth rose is a tool to help you do this. Here’s how this technique works:

In your mind’s eye imagine a rose out in front of you just outside your aura, about an arm’s reach away. Make it any color you like. Ground the rose to the center of the earth by visualizing the roots of it travel and affix firmly to the center of the earth. Try not to figure out where the center of the earth is. Your higher self knows where this is. Now, take a moment to see the details of the rose. What color did you make it? Are there leaves? Thorns? Notice the petals and any texture. Then, out loud, ask a question you desire an answer to. Let the rose absorb the energy of your question. Then just observe. If the answer is truth or yes the rose will flourish or get bigger and brighter. If the rose withers or turns a darker color the answer is a no or not truth. These can be used any time you need assistance in a decision, during a conversation, or any situation you need intuitive guidance.

Psychic Learning Should be Fun!

Building any clairability starts with your intention. Follow this up with practice. One very simple way to become in tune with your heightened senses is through fun and games. Find a deck of cards that you feel a pull to. In a quiet place, draw three cards and try to guess the suit only.  Do this several times. Notice how you do but resist attachment to the outcome or trying to get it right. Trying to get it right is rich with ego and hinders your growth. When you come to a place of just accepting what comes you know you are becoming in tune to your ability. You will find you are also accurately identifying suits in this mind set. Finally, pay close attention to how it felt to be accurate. Your awareness of this simple feeling assists the blossoming of your ability.

A Psychic Validation Exercise

Before you start your day and while in a meditative state ask the universe to bring you images of what is to come in your day ahead. Resist the desire to interpret images that present. Just let them float in. You may receive information that seems ridiculous, beyond belief and/or has no meaning to you whatsoever. This is fine. Write it all down. Come back to your journal later that day and note what you saw that did indeed present in your day.  For example, did you see an eagle and then in your day you either saw an eagle or read about one in the newspaper or a book? The key here is to be consistent with this exercise. Clairvoyance is like a muscle it gets stronger with your consistency and your trust in it.

Your Most Important Psychic Development Technique: The Sensory Field Trip

One of the first tools to use to begin opening up all of your clairs is the sensory field trip. This will help you to increase your awareness of energy and sensory information. Go to a zoo, an airport or your local grocery store or farmer’s market. Take the time to really notice everything in this sensory rich environment, as if you were a little kid taking a field trip.

Take thirty or forty minutes to wander and go through an organic foods store, for example. Smell all the smells and see all the sights. Hear all the sounds that you can and feel all the feelings and body sensations. You may want to write down what you smell, see, feel and hear to keep you on track and help you focus more. Look everywhere and feel everything. Notice all textures, colors, sensations, temperatures, feelings, emotions and smells. Pick up a head of lettuce and really feel the textures, weight and temperature of the lettuce. 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, to the side for any reason? Ask yourself why if so. It’s important to notice direction, because the way things present to you- from the top, bottom, right, or left does matter. Often directional messages are correlated with time. For example, something presenting from the left can mean it is linked to the past; from the middle can indicate a link to the present, and from the right can mean future connection.

The sensory field trip is an excellent method for opening and developing your clairabilities. Be aware that if you are highly in tune to your abilities already or are very empathic, you may find a sensory trip to be a bit of an emotion overload. If this is the case, just do this exercise for a shorter time or choose a location that feels better to you.

The following meditation will be helpful to do before you go on your sensory field trip and throughout your development of this ability.
