Hone Your Gifts
Each person will have a strong point. For me, I first started with Clairvoyance (descriptions below). I was able to see images almost immediately once into meditation. And with practice I’ve been able to see more images at a faster pace. Although this comes with time and dedication. During those times that I may slack off with meditating, it gets a bit harder to bring in images psychically. I get back into practicing meditations and bringing my awareness back up. Since Clear-seeing was easier for me, I had other areas I needed (and still would like) to work on. Clairsentience (knowing when my emotions, feelings and senses are not my own but someone else’s) and Clairaudience and more. 🙂 For you, you may have a stronger ability to “hear” sounds and voices, then “seeing” images. Test this out and find out what your strong point is.
The following are the three main Psychic Abilities defined to help you see where you are strongest and where you can develop more:
Clairvoyance – Clear-Seeing (SIGHT) The ability to See images and/or visions, like pictures in your Mind’s Eye (Third Eye). Your Third Eye is located in the middle of your forehead between your two eyes and eye brows. The information can come to you in a variety of different ways. Either in one big. symbolic vision (much like a dream) that you will have to define. Writing these down right away with no emotion or thoughts at first is the best idea.
Images – When seeing images and/or visions you need to learn what they mean to you and to the person they are for. To start, you need to start with an image of something. Get a piece of paper and pen. Let’s say a Butterfly in a field, for example. See this butterfly in a field. What does it represent to you? What do you feel? What else do you see as a definition for this image? Write all this down. This can mean something COMPLETELY different to you than it does to me. Did you think that a Butterfly in a field meant Freedom? Or Peace and Tranquility? Or both?
Also, when focusing on a direct question and you receive an image like this, it could mean something completely different during one reading based on the persons’ question than another reading and a totally separate question. But let’s say a man asks for a reading and is wondering if he and his girlfriend will last? You get an image of a butterfly in a field. Someone might say, “Well it seems that she is quite beautiful as a person, but is a flight case and will be using her wings to fly away soon, a free spirit, etc.” Others might say, “She brings peach and tranquility to you, she makes you feel free.” And yet again, the person being read might have a specific special meaning to the vision, so sometimes you must explain the vision in detail, and the person may say, “Oh my goodness, we were just at the park last weekend and we were in a remote area. Then this beautiful butterfly comes out of nowhere. It was a moment we cherished together.” So sometimes it really is hard to tell. 🙂 Images can be literal or they have a message behind them. You need to go by your intuition for everything. 🙂
After the butterfly exercise is over, move on to another image. Go over this with a partner and/or a group if you can, that way you get a variety of different people’s views on these images as well. Eventually, as you become more practiced or adept at seeing images in your Third Eye the images will seem to “project” outward. Dedication and practice will assist in this growing however you choose it to be.
Clairaudience – Clear-Hearing (SOUND) The ability to Hear sounds and/or voices within your Mind’s Eye. Though the area where you “hear” is in the Ear area, this is your Third Eye “hearing” a voice and/or sound. Some have said this is located behind and below our physical ears. This also seems to be more subtle in elaboration, to have the ability to decipher your own THOUGHTS as the thought of other Spirits and/or Spirit Guides, etc. 🙂 Most Mediums will have a strong ability in Clairaudience.
Clairsentience – Clear-Sensing/Feeling (TOUCH/TASTE/SMELL) I would go so far as to call those with this ability in a strong sense, are Empaths. In Clear-sensing you are basically (as Echo Bodine calls it in her book) a “psychic sponge”. You will soak up all of the environment around you and the others that you come in contact with. Their emotions, their negativity, their positive feelings, etc. You will also have a sense of smell (like when a deceased loved one sends you a scent of a rose, this is “smelling” with your ability). You can even TASTE things that are not what you are actually physically tasting, but psychically. A ghost or spirit may send you a sense of taste of something (i.e. Cigars, metal, etc.), anything to do with that person. Although you can separate (and some have) the Clairsentient and the Empath. The Clairsentient feeling physical things within another person. The Empath feeling emotional (emotions) within other people, etc. 🙂 Sorry, it’s really not meant to be confusing! lol! Ask away if I am not making any sense! 🙂
For this ability (as with all, but this one is much stronger in retaining other peoples junk), you will need to do much clearing and always using the “disconnect” button when ridding yourself of other people’s garbage. One good example of disconnecting was offered by a reader. She said to picture a phone hanging up. If the emotions are getting too much for you, just see that phone hanging up. Surround yourself with WHITE LIGHT, call in your spirit guides and angels for extra help. You have many things you can do to rid yourself of others’ garbage.
