How to Become Intuitive/Psychic/Calirvoyant

Let me start at the beginning, we are all intuitive. We all have the ability to tune into a sixth sense that guides us, informs and tells us answers to whatever we want to know. The problem is many of us do not trust or even listen to it. We all have guidance around us, I have never done a reading for someone and seen nothing around them, they may have pushed their guides away but they are still there waiting and in any way possible doing their jobs. If you want to increase your own intuitive abilities then, the best way to do so is to stop doubting and start trusting in yourself.


I am sure many people have different definitions than I do for these words so for the sake of clarity I will briefly explore their definitions. According to Websters online:

Intuitive- having the ability to know or understand things without any proof or evidence: having or characterized by having intuition

Psychic- used to describe strange mental powers and abilities... that cannot be explained by natural laws

Clairvoyant- able to see beyond the range of ordinary perception

Ok so we see that while there are some slight variations these words all describe having the ability to see a little more than the ordinary person can see.

Having a sixth sense is mainly about two things, 1) Quieting your mind in order to receive information and 2) Working out your intuitive muscle. So, just like when you lift weights to build muscle here you will be doing the same thing, exercising your psychic abilities. Practice makes your intuitive abilities stronger and more reliable. before you can really practice you must learn to quiet your mind. The mind is an incredible distracting force it can also get in the way by casting doubt or saying disparaging things such as, "you can't do this", "this is all in your head" and so on. Everyone goes through this in the beginning it's normal. Western civilization does not covet such abilities and when we experience them we are taught to believe it is just our imaginations. It is a wonder that anyone breaks through all this negative programming to do so takes conviction and courage but you can do it!

First ask to be surrounded by the White Light of the Holy Spirit, or ask a specific Archangel such as Archangel Michael to join you and give protection. To quite your mind try some simple meditation techniques. Deep breathing, relaxation, and gentle visualization can all help you to stop the incessant chatter of the mind. Next, once you feel suitably relaxed ask your question, for example, "What is My Life Purpose?", or, "Who is My Spirit Guide?"
Sometimes, it can be easier to ask about someone else, "Who is my Daughter's Spirit Guide?",or, "What is My Brother's Life Purpose?". Ask whatever you want to know, you might ask something very simple that requires a yes or no answer, "Should I go out with _____?", or "Should I ask for a Promotion Now?"

Next comes the working your intuitive muscle part. Ask your question and then take a deep breathe and clear your mind, it is the first answer that comes in that will be the most reliable. After that you may start second guessing. You may hear a name given in response to a question about a guide, or a yes or no response. It may accompany a feeling as well such as a feeling of love if it is the name of a guide or a feeling of certainty over a yes or no question. Once you get a little more practiced at going into the "energy", as I call it, of a question you will discover layers of answers. There are a lot of details that come at you when asking a question and it takes practice at sorting it all out and relaying it. If you are doing a reading for another person be sure to give them all the information you are seeing even if it doesn't make sense to you because it usually makes sense to them. Even if at that time it doesn't make sense it often will later. Make sure you are working with a safe person that will give you positive feedback not a cynic, save that for later, after you are more practiced!

Another thing to note is that some people receive answers by hearing words, not so much in your ear but more in your mind. Others receive images, others receive feelings while still others can experience smells or other sensations. This is part of your working out your intuitive muscle you will learn what your ability is, how you receive your information. Everyone is different and most people can pick up information in a couple different ways. I have a close find who has always been able to smell spirits especially those of her departed relatives, she'll pick up a fragrance from perfume that the person wore, or cigar smoke. To me that is miraculous as I get images and sometimes words but not smells. Learn about what you're unique abilities are and experiment with them.

Always remember to surround yourself with protective energies first and make sure that you are in a stable emotional state before doing this practice, it just makes for better and more reliable results. The more you practice the better you will become. Don't get discouraged if it it takes some time, it can take years to really build the intuitive muscle but once you start you will notice a shift and new doors will open!

The Other Side

Where do we go when this life ends? It's a big question no one really knows the answer to be certain. Yet, through many readings and personal meditations I have glimpsed at least a few of the different realms we may inhabit after we transition. I am in no way an expert on this topic, I believe that none of us truly can be until we have crossed over thus rendering the whole point moot. I am continually learning and endlessly fascinated by this topic and if you are too then allow me to share with you what I have received over time about life on the other side.

It is not something I take lightly or even feel entirely comfortable discussing because many religious beliefs dictate what someone may or may not believe about the afterlife. I don't want to tread on any toes here. I simply present my findings for you to take or leave.

From what I have seen through readings where clients have asked to connect with someone who has transitioned, if the person has transitioned very recently there is more of the personality that they had in the body still with them. They are almost exactly as they appeared while in the body and they are often receiving healing or counseling for the emotional traumas they may have went through in life. Particularly in cases of murder, severe illness or suicide there will be a lot of healers around the person as they help them release the traumas and acclimate themselves to being home again. This takes a different amount of time for each person. If a person had a lingering illness or they were in a coma they may have already been through this process as people in those states often travel to the other side in preparation for their transition. People who die more suddenly need more time to acclimate. No matter how long this process takes, eventually, all people will feel very different in their energy, they are generally very blissful, busy in activities and expanded as they have let go of the personality that they had in the body and added new dimensions to it from their collective experiences of past lives as well as their own spirit/soul.

We do work after we leave this lifetime, we are very engaged in many activities. There are different realms on the other side, some purelands, some from other planetary systems and I have understood there to be realms of limbo, not so much punishing places but places where souls can get lost. So much depends on your beliefs and attachments at the time of your death. That however is a topic for another discussion we are focusing on what we do once we are there. The options are endless. I have seen glimpses of an entire world over there. I do not think that our understanding as it is can fully grasp or comprehend the staggering vastness of what awaits. There is one realm I see the most, it is a rather earth-like place where from what I can tell people do what they love most. There are areas of music, drama, art. I have seen and heard concerts and lectures. there are parks, buildings, animals, the sky is blue and the people look as they did on earth only everyone except a few are younger in appearance (generally in their 30's). They are healthy, vibrant and very much alive looking. Solid and real. There are flowers and water, even food and drink but it isn't required not having a body. There are schools and universities, research and development.

Many people choose to work with the incarnated. I have seen these "professions" many times and yet I sense there are many, many more I have yet to stumble upon in a reading. Some of the professions I have learned of are; Counselor for New Arrivals, Incarnates Returning Home, Counselors for soon to be Incarnates, Life Charting, Energy Worker Assisting Incarnates at World Level, Energy Worker for Assisting Non-Incarnates at Inter-Dimensional Level, and of course Spirit Guides, those who have agreed to work with an incarnate through usually most of their lifetime. There are other jobs not related so much to incarnates such as; Anthropologist, Astronomer, Animal Research (no harm comes to animals as they do not have a body), Musician, Artist, Teacher and Writer. These are merely the jobs I have actually unearthed in readings there are as many fields as there are here and more beyond. What I have learned is that when a person works in a certain area on the other side they can do two things with that knowledge; pass it on to incarnates via inspiration and guidance or incarnate themselves and plan to work in that field. However, that being said just because you are a musician on the other side does not mean you will necessarily be one in this lifetime. We live hundreds, sometimes thousands of lives imagine being a musician in each one! Our souls must have a variety of experiences in order to grow so likely that soul would have lifetimes where they were something else other than a musician yet there would probably be a strong pull towards music and perhaps it would be a hobby. There are times too where we will come in as the exact opposite of what we really are to experience that yet the soul of a musician would likely find an outlet in some other art-form to channel the inherent inspiration and divine connection that they are accustomed to.

All in all we live very rich and complex lives after we leave this one. We may choose to continue that work once we return or for many people there will be more lifetimes as they grow and expand their experiences. For older souls, there is often a need to spend more and more time at home in between lifetimes. As your soul gets older it must go through more when it incarnates, healing old karma, wounds, deep habitual patterns. It can be taxing and therefore more time is needed between visits. Although with each person this may vary. Younger souls seem to have more enthusiasm and eagerness in coming here and in reincarnating. They want to grow and have personal experiences and work through all the different levels of soul growth. Similar to how we feel when we start college or a new job we are very excited in the beginning but after time with experience comes a settling down of the whole being, as experience brings wisdom and transmutes the earlier ambitions into ones of a more universal reach.

That is what the other side is really about the continuation of our growth. We have many stopping points along the way we never are pushed, we go at our own rate. We come back as many times as we need to and we make the most of our time in between visits. We are always growing and expanding, exploring and learning. that is what the nature of the soul is, it is curiosity, joy, action but also deep peace and most of all love. And that is what we can say the other side is mainly about it is a place of gentle and unending love.

Being Intuitive

The thing about being intuitive, you would think it would really give you a distinct advantage in life. I guess in some ways it does, I can ask for guidance in matters I am stuck in. It sure helps when you lose an item or need to check in on someones intentions. Yet, there are many other areas in life where, at least for me, being intuitive hasn't given me any advantages. For example I can't pick winning lottery numbers or who is going to win a baseball/basketball/football game before I watch it. I guess there are just those things we are not meant to know! That aside, when I started doing readings it was with tarot cards. I didn't have to use much but my mind to do that because the cards had meanings already. Yet, I did start to use my intuitive abilities when I would tap into what all the cards in a spread meant together. That is where the magic starts. I next learned how to do past life readings, where was this information coming from? I was tapping into it, that is one way I explain what I do I tap into energy and read it.

Everything is energy, so to tap into it is something we can all do. I don't have any special abilities other than this, I trained myself to focus on second sight. I was so intrigued by the idea of learning about past lives, that I began to study meditation, practice it and eventually developed the ability to go to the Akashic Hall of Records and read what was there. Through many years I grew and honed this ability. Anyone who is focused and determined can do it. In fact, I would argue that anyone that has a strong desire to be able to read energy is likely someone who will take to it rather quickly. The most difficult challenge is confidence and understanding that while you are intuitive, you can read situations, people and so on you are not always going to be given what the person you are reading for wants to hear. If a client asks a vague question they get a vague answer. The details they may have wanted won't come though. Another important thing to understand is that while you can "predict" the future as it stands today you must also account for the millions of variables present in all situations that can and will alter what you see today. Additionally, if there are energy blocks or some other obstacle we can delay a future path. Free will of others will often cause things to go awry. Once I learned from a psychic teacher that for the most part there aren't supposed to be any murders. That a large majority of the time when someone is murdered it was not their plan, their life was literally cut short including all the plans and goals they had for coming here. This sent my mind racing, other than those who planned it, a small percentage apparently, we can be so interrupted in our life path that we actually die at the hands of another's free will. It is a powerful example in how a future path can be changed by someone else. All of this must be understood when tapping in on energy or else you may doubt yourself. Mainly, what you will learn is there is always more to learn. Be open to that, to taking in new information that may even cancel out old information. We live, we grow, we learn, we evolve.

One thing I find challenging with clients is when they come back and say hey I haven't found the Mr./Ms right like you said I would or I haven't made the money, found the dream job you said I would, etc. Again, no future is certain but what I always say to a query such as that is, why not? It was there and now it has been blocked, why is that? When I give a reading that talks about the future there are often low roads and high roads this means a path that is either of a higher nature or of a lower one. If we walk the lower path we will expedience more obstacles, delays and hardships than the higher one. I generally lay out both because I don't want to try to sell a glossy, rosy future when we all know as brilliants souls inhabiting human bodies both paths exist. Guidance is usually given too about any blocks or obstacles that I can foresee and how to deal with them. If there was one area I wish I could expand on the most it is in how to heal those blocks. Emotional blocks, traumas, unhealthy habits of the mind they all keep us locked in a cycle of sameness. Meaning you won't walk that higher path if you don't break the habit of the one you are on now.

Being intuitive means many things, above all else I think it means being open and sensitive to the energies around us. We all can do that, it just takes focus and dedication to develop and trust in this inherent ability.

Happy tapping!

Energy Blocks

So, I opened a new shop on etsy, and it has been quite an interesting experience. I love adding all the new readings, being able to offer coupons (promo codes) and seeing what everyone else on etsy is selling. It's like a little world in there. I'm getting a lot of traffic but not too many sales yet. Still, I know I am being impatient and that it takes time to build an etsy presence.

What I really want to look at in this moment is how I may be blocking myself from success. Whether it's etsy or anywhere else online or in the the "real world" if we have a block/fear then what we want won't show up. I am bumping up hard against my blocks now. I am over this I want to break through and into new territory we only live once in these particular bodies with these particular circumstances and it took an awful lot to get here. Enough of the blocks and the lack!

At one time our blocks helped us, or so we believe, they kept us out of danger. If we have a block made of fear around failure then by staying stuck and never trying anything new, we don't fail. We also don't succeed! Staying in our stuck places can feel very comforting. I speak from experience I know the stuck places better than the unstuck ones unfortunately. I have dwelled in the neighborhood of stuck places for many years, don't go out wandering around at night man! Still, if you dig deep down you will find an infinite supply of inspiration, guidance, love and wherewithal. I promise, it's there I have discovered it! It is stronger than any fear you have and it can and will change your life dramatically for the better. You will heal, grow, prosper and transform once you tap into your own inner direction and power. This streaming energy comes from source, it is life force, ah the force there that makes the most sense. We must use the force.

These are my thoughts that I ponder, pondering in my empty shop dusting my wares hoping for a sale, no, visioning a sale, lots of sales and abundance and success. Why not? It's just energy but for our blocks we can all have more than enough.

Here's to living our lives and being full and content in this moment now and always.
