Psychic Medium Reveals Top 6 Successful Characteristics of Psychics

Who or What Is a Psychic?

A psychic is a person who recognizes the supernatural capabilities of the mind and works to expand his or her skills and develop those abilities lying outside the realm of physical science or earthly understanding—powers and abilities that function outside the domain of natural laws. Psychic abilities involve skills to interpret, manipulate, and report on events and information that can’t be acquired within the sphere of physical science.

What Do Psychics Do?

Psychics deal with things pertaining to the human soul and mind. They engage in powers relating to spiritual forces, the immaterial, and the influences of universal energy. Such efforts result in the development of insights and abilities, like telepathy and clairvoyance. People who have worked at developing their psychic abilities will find they become proficient in one or several of the activities commonly referred to as mediumship, clairvoyance, telepathy, mind reading, ESP, palmistry, and other aids to spiritual exploration.

Am I Psychic?

Yes! You are. We all are. Psychic abilities can be acquired by anyone who takes the time and makes the effort to study and learn. It isn’t necessary to be highly evolved or believe in psychic inclinations that may have occurred in childhood. Everyone has psychic potential, but their abilities often remain inactive until something triggers them into action. Psychic ability, like any skill, develops only when wanted and practiced. It fades when it is neglected.

There is Scientific Proof Behind Psychic Functioning

Scientific proof that psychic powers exist is gaining ground. Thousands practice the art, and thousands more believe. Physicist and author, Russell Targ, states in his book The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities the scientific evidence that we all possess psychic abilities is “… now overwhelming and modern physics has the means and tools to embrace it.” Mediums and psychics have been relaying messages and conducting readings for thousands of years. Even Solomon sought the advice of a spiritualist and received it, although he acted against God’s instructions. The result was he obtained information about the outcome of an upcoming battle.

Today, there are a larger number of spiritualists practicing than ever before, and there is a greater acceptance of spiritual expressions. Seventy-two percent of all Americans describe themselves as spiritual but not religious. Individuals like Oprah Winfrey, Alice Walker, Richard Bach, Elizabeth Gilbert, Louise Hay, Neale Donald Walsh, and Iyanla Vanzant are some of those Americans.

The Psychic Veil is Thinning

Psychic practices are no longer considered taboo, and people who side with those beliefs are no longer considered bizarre, creepy, or peculiar. The psychic profession is now accepted. It is a practice that endeavors to uncover an inner view of the soul and the universal connection of souls. Psychics believe since we are all souls and we are all connected, we are all psychic on some level. How adept we become at using those psychic tendencies is up to us; growth takes training.

 How Can I Develop My Psychic Ability?

Training to be a psychic, like the training for any occupation, is necessary. And because you have the power of choice, you can decide to develop your psychic gifts whenever you want and for whatever reason you want. No one, even those in the psychic community, knows for sure or can prove where psychic gifts come from. So it is up to you to trust the process and believe that any psychic power can be acquired.

The psychic community believes spiritual energies are working for the good of humankind—energies that will guide you to the realization of your true spiritual nature and to the highest expression of who you are. They believe that psychic gifts, when used properly, benefit you and do not function to flatter your ego. Psychic practices support identifying the true essence of the soul and illuminate for the world the true nature and meaning of spirituality.

The difference between those with psychic ability and those without is simply a matter of training and intention. The mind is not just a function of the body, like an arm or a leg. It is a powerful tool from which we can access the universe and our inner selves. Each of us can learn to stand in our own power, in our own way, and in our own time; psychic training can do all of that.

Psychics, and those who are interested in investigating the power of the universe and the unexplainable, share the same characteristics. You’ve met them. They are people who seem to know what’s going to happen before it happens, those who seem to read minds, those who are both cursed and blessed by being highly intuitive. They are people who appear to go about their lives in a different way.

  • Brian Burker says:

    I was wondering if I am psychic. I had an experience happen in a dream. Then the next day everything in the dream happened in real life.

  • Thomas Reyes says:

    In 1985, I worked as a registered nurse in a busy Chicago teaching hospital. When I came on shift, I had a distinct impression that something untoward was going to happen to one of the patients. I changed the assignment so that my co-worker would have all the easy patients while I took on the most difficult ones. This created a numerical imbalance, which she wasn’t pleased with. A few minutes into the shift, I could see a reddish hue surrounding her body. It extended out three feet in all directions. It was like a reddish fog. In addition, I could hear it. It was like a humming white noise. It dissipated after a few minutes. I took it as intense anger. Just a couple of hours before the shift ended, a patient took a turn for the worse. I was able to focus on that patient while my co-worker was able to support me since her patients required minimal care. I’ve never seen an aura again, but I did have a lot of intuitive experiences.

    • Wonderful! Thank you for sharing your experience Thomas. Sometimes, an image and a sound can indeed come right along with the auric presence/experience. Set an intention and follow the recommended steps and this will develop even further for you. Warmly, Michelle

    • Jonathan, Hello and thank you for stopping in. We are ‘all’ psychic. It is an innate ability we are born with. That said, we each have degrees of this ability and some are born with their ability more readily available/awake, so to speak. Being psychic is much like a muscle and grows over time as one works at it and strengthens it. Right now, continue to read, learn and practice techniques you learn at my Blog and Podcast or elsewhere you feel a pull to. In time, with intention and practice is will grow more and more.
