How To Develop Your Psychic Abilities

Want to Develop Your Sixth Sense?

Let me begin by saying that all my counseling sessions are confidential. If at any time I happen to mention things that have been said to me, I am not referring to a specific case or person. I don't do that. The events I make reference to are all generalizations. I have been asked before, how to develop psychic abilities or is it possible to develop my psychic abilities. No matter how the question is asked, my answer will always be the same. Yes, it is possible to not only develop, but enhance psychic abilities. This is partly because I truly believe everyone has some psychic ability. There are so many gifts a person can have that could be construed as psychic ability. Almost everybody has heard of ESP or extra sensory perception. This is also known as a sixth sense, so named due to the fact we only have five senses supposedly, sight, hearing, touch, taste, and feel. Much research has been done in this area and some have classified many more senses. The field of study that covers paranormal psychic phenomena is Parapsychology, which has grown by leaps and bounds. The list of items covered by Wikipedia on parapsychology totaled 71.The list on psychic abilities totaled 22. Here is a short list:

  1. Automatic writing - writing without conscious thought; Astral Projection - out-of-body experience - astral body separates from physical body; Clairvoyance - perception outside known human senses; Mediumship - communication with a person who has died; Precognition - perception of future events before they happen; Psychokinesis or Telekinesis - Manipulating matter, space, time, or energy; Psychometry - Obtaining knowledge about a person or object; Retrocognition - Perception of past events; Scrying - use of an item to view events at a distance or in the future; Telepathy, ESP, and 6th Sense -Transfer of thought or emotion, knowing another person's thoughts; Transvection - Bodily levitation or flying.

Any or all of these items can be a psychic ability. As I stated before, this is not a complete list. I did not list Empath on there and this is one of the gifts I possess. Empathy to a degree that you actually feel another person's feelings and even aches and pains. If you have ever had anything from this list happen to you, you probably have a some latent psychic ability, even if you don't realize it. Maybe you just brushed it off as coincidence. Maybe your conscious mind simply could not believe it, so you just repressed it. If this is the case, you might occasionally experience dreams about it. Or, maybe you are aware that you do have one or more psychic abilities, and you want to know how to develop your psychic ability. I need to address one thing at this point. It can be considered Dr. Marie's Rule #1. You must have an open mind. If you do not have an open mind, the techniques I am going to tell you about will not work for you, and are a waste of your time. Whatever your reasons for reading this article, in the next section I am going to explain exactly how to develop your psychic ability by beginning with deep meditation. You will take a trip that can change your life forever for the better.

Meditation! ~ Be At One With Yourself & Nature! ~ Photo by Petra Röder

Developing and Enhancing Psychic Ability with Meditation

I chose this picture because the more I looked at it, I began to see movement. It spoke to me. You don't have to sit like this young lady is sitting! However, you do have to learn to meditate, and be at one with yourself and nature. In order to meditate, you should be alone. (Unless someone you trust is reading this for you.). It does not have to be dark, it only has to be comfortable for you. You should be sure you will not be disturbed. You should be sitting in a comfortable position. I enjoy lighting a white candle; white is for purity, protection, relaxation, and meditation, but you do not have to. Now close your eyes.

You need to take at least 10 to 12, deep, long, purifying breaths. Before you begin your routine of 10 to 12 breaths, take a few practice breaths. Breathe in through your nose, slowly and deeply, to totally fill your lungs. Then breathe out slowly through your mouth. Good job! Now practice is over. After you have finished the 10 to 12 deep breaths, and keeping your eyes closed, see yourself stand up & look around. (BUT keep your eyes closed throughout the entire exercise. See yourself with your eyes open in your "mind's eye".). All the while, you are breathing slowly. Everything has slowed. Time has slowed. Your pace has slowed. You have slowed and you begin to relax. Keep looking until you see a doorway. Walk through it. When you step outside, the temperature is perfect. The sun is shining, but it feels wonderful. You see a handmade stone pathway and, walking slowly, you begin to travel down this pathway. All around there are beautiful multicolored flowers blooming with vibrant colors. You take another deep breath and you can actually smell the flowers' perfume. There are small beautiful birds flying by. One of them lands lightly on your shoulder for a moment, then resumes its flight. To the left you see a hand-carved wooden bench. There are three rails along the back. The entire bench is covered in ancient Celtic writing and symbols. There is a round, stone, garden statue of cherubs playing and the pathway encircles it. There is a lighted torch burning. As you walk slowly around it, you come back toward the original stone pathway. Two items catch your eye up ahead. The stones continue on, turning into an arched walkway over a crystal blue sparkling brook, then lead up to what looks like an ancient stone keep. You are still walking slowly along the stone pathway over the bridge and right on up to the keep. You look and notice there is no door. It is open to all. As you walk in, you notice a large, round stone pedestal in the center of the room. There are three steps up as you walk up onto the pedestal. Once you arrive in the center of the pedestal, you stop & tilt your head slowly back to stretch. As you do so you will suddenly see yourself bathed in the softest, purest, shimmering white light. Your skin warms and you smile. Your senses all come alive. You are nestled within the most protected circle of love you have ever felt. You feel at peace. You have no stress whatsoever. You are truly happy. You are at one with yourself and nature, and now with the universe. You know, without doubt, you can accomplish anything you want to. You can be successful! You do not want to leave here, but knowing you must, you turn and slowly descend the three steps, knowing you are always welcome back here. You walk slowly back towards home, your breathing is still slow and relaxed. You are not in a hurry now. Just follow the stone pathway back across the brook, on past the Cherub statues, and then home. Slowly you may open your eyes now and stretch. You feel wonderful and relaxed with a deep sense of well being. You have completely de-stressed.

Congratulations! You have just taken your first journey into deep meditation. I like to do this alone & that is why I suggested it. But then, I have it memorized. If there is someone you love and trust, it is OK for them to read this aloud to you. They should, however, read softly and slowly. Or, you might want to read it to them. Believe it or not, this one little journey has expanded your reality. It is good to do this exercise at least once a day, more if you choose. It will refresh your spirit and help you to de-stress. This is only one of my De-stress Techniques, but I chose this one because it is one of my favorites, and I wanted to share it with you.

All these techniques use a method that connects you with all the other elements. The elements are earth, air, fire, water, and spirit. Now you are ready to try a couple of other techniques. The first one is using Zenner Cards to test for ESP.

Develop Psychic ability using ESP (Zenner) Cards

When working toward developing your psychic ability, it really is a matter of study and the use of techniques to build a foundation from which to grow. This technique has been around a long time. Some of you may have already tried it, but some of you probably have not. These cards were actually developed back in the 1930s by Karl Zenner to study ESP. The premise is to use these cards to see if you can guess the symbol that is on the card, then turn the card over to see if you got it right. Think of it as a game. You can make these cards for yourself. Notice the cards have 5 symbols, a circle, a plus sign, 3 wavy lines, a square, and a star. Whatever you draw them on, you should not be able to see through. You must draw 5 sets of 5. In other words, draw each symbol on 5 cards. When you finish, you have 25 cards. Then with the cards face down, mix them up. Pick up 1 card at a time, concentrate on it, & write down what you believe it to be. Do this for all 25 cards. Don't look at the cards until you have finished. Now go back and see how many you got right.

In order to see how well you scored, you consider the null hypothesis which means no psychic ability. Therefore, due to the law of averages, you can expect to get 5 right. If you get more than 5 right, Congratulations!, you just proved you do have some ESP ability. The more you got right, the greater the psychic ability you have just demonstrated!

Demonstrating that you have ESP is only a beginning. As I said before, there are so many psychic gifts people can have, it is impossible for me to cover them all in this article. But by completing this exercise, you have made a start. Whether or not you did well in this exercise, does not close any doors. If you don't have ESP, so what? There are lots of other psychic abilities. And remember, you can always go back and co this as many times as you like. Who knows, with practice, you may just score higher.

Next I am going to talk a little about Telekinesis and show you a very basic technique for developing it.

Enhance Your Telekinetic Ability Using a Pendulum

I get a lot of questions about Telekinesis, so I am going to write about a technique here that can not only help you determine if you have telekinetic ability, but help you enhance the ability if you do. Before I tell you anything else, let me state that the pendulum can be used to find answers to questions you have. There are some who call on spirits to help them move the pendulum to answer their questions. That is NOT what this is about. For our purposes, the pendulum is only going to be used to see if you (and you alone) can move it with your mind.

To begin with, you must have a pendulum. If you have one already, that's great! You can use it. However, if you don't already have a pendulum, you don't have to buy one. You can make one. When you make your own pendulum, wood seems to be the medium that works best. I read that a long time ago in a book called Practical Guide to Psychic Powers and I have found it to be true. (Long ago, some people used to get a wood chip & tie a string of their own hair on it for the suspension method.). You do need a small, light piece of wood, but you can tie a nylon string on it and it works just as well. (Yes, fishing line will do.). As for the piece of wood, you can cut it or carve on it. You can make it longer or shorter. The main point is this; once you have made it, just hang it over something stable such as a desk lamp. Wherever you place it, it must hang free, and you must be able to bring it to a complete stop. There should be no movement and you should not sit so close as to breath on it.

Now comes the fun part! You sit and stare at the pendulum. Have a direction in your mind and concentrate on that direction. You can begin by thinking "Swing back and forth". The pendulum should eventually begin to swing back and forth. Let the pendulum stop moving or you can stop it. Once you are successful at this, you might try thinking "Move side to side". Once again the pendulum should begin to move side to side. Again, let the pendulum come to a complete stop or you can stop it. Now try thinking "move clockwise or to the right in a circle". The pendulum should eventually begin to move in a circular motion clockwise. If you are successful, you can wait for the pendulum to stop, or you can bring its movement to a stop yourself. Now stare at it while thinking "move counterclockwise or to the left in a circle". The pendulum should begin to move counterclockwise in a circle.

All the techniques mentioned in this article are very basic and simple methods you can use to try to begin developing your psychic ability. If you do have psychic ability, these methods will help you to bring it out. There are many more techniques and many more psychic abilities. Some are easy to do, and others are much more complex and not for beginners.

Greetings Remo:

I believe you answered your own question, my dear. You said, "I am getting the answers I want in relation to a relationship" Pendulums can be very attuned to you. Your pendulum may simply be echoing back your own yearns to you, especially if you have very strong feelings for this person. Don't give up working with your pendulum. Every psychic gift takes time to develop. Just keep working with yours. And, try using a specific time for something to occur. If it does not occur by then, well it was wrong. Good luck to you and thanks for asking a good question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi Justin:

I must be honest with you and tell you that I have never had any experience with transvection (flying). I have had dreams in which I flew and I have had out of body experiences, but this is different. Transvection actually involves physical levitation and/or flying. I have heard there are some reported cases of it with Shamans and mystics. I imagine this would involve really deep meditation, prayer, maybe even fasting, but that is just my opinion. I do know Shamans train for years to attain their positions. I am sorry I cannot help you, but this is just outside my field of expertise. I can only suggest you do research. Check out the bookstores. Look online. There is an old saying, "When the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear.". Good luck to you in all your endeavors.

Dr. Marie
