Ten Ways to Improve Your Psychic Ability
Most people are trained to ignore intuition, so they let their psychic potential go to waste. Few realize that everyone has psychic abilities, some more than others, but everyone nonetheless. These spiritual skills can be developed and perfected; clairvoyants need little more than inner peace and meditation to keep their abilities strong. Without following certain steps, however, even psychics would be living in suspense. These ten steps that once helped them to improve their psychic abilities, and now they can help you:
1. Believe in Yourself
Negative thoughts hinder psychic abilities. However long it takes, just have faith and stay upbeat. You will meet your goals in time. Find inspiration whenever and wherever you can. Read stories about others who honed their psychic abilities, and keep learning ways to follow in their footsteps. Let go of any skepticism you have. Allow yourself to trust in your own natural power, as well as the power of the supernatural. Anything less than 100% effort is unacceptable. There is no room for doubt during your spiritual ventures.
2. Take Time to Relax
To fall into a deep state of relaxation, most people meditate or breathe slowly while concentrating on nothingness. Not only does it clear your mind, but meditation actually changes brain wave patterns. This decreases metabolic rate and relieves tension. It has cured hypertension and improved heart health. Meditation also temporarily alters the prefrontal cortex, allowing for better mental performance and even boosting energy levels – exactly what people need in order to get in touch with the spiritual side of life. Release your stress. Just breathe.
3. Resolve Differences Between You and Those Around You
People cannot be in tune with their mystic gifts unless they are at peace with themselves and others. Avoid fighting in general, and be quick to resolve conflict in your life. Learn to argue constructively, working toward a final resolution. Merely trying to hurt each other in anger only makes a problem worse. Meditating is more difficult when you have the burden of personal drama on your shoulders; how in the world can you clear your head?
4. Do Not Misuse Your Psychic Abilities for Personal Gain
Your God-given gifts are always meant to help people. You have to make the choice to use them for good. People who become selfish with their special skills tend to lose them. For example, if you bet money after psychically predicting who will win boxing matches, prepare to forfeit your spiritual talents. Power like this is not given to anyone for winning money or anything of the sort. Always consider whether or not you're using your abilities for the collective good.
5. Overcome Your Fears
Psychic contact and other supernatural phenomena can be frightening, but fear hinders abilities even more than negativity. If you want to get in touch with your spiritual side, you can't be afraid of the consequences. You may foresee new things when you least expect it. That's part of the experience, so embrace the gift you have been given. Think of all the good you can do with this kind of power and it might not seem so scary.
6. Maintain a Positive Attitude at All Times
Do whatever you need to in order to feel content with your life. This might mean taking time out for yourself every once in a while or finding a hobby that you enjoy. It all boils down to what keeps a smile on your face. Stress and negativity get in the way of complete relaxation, which will help turn your focus to the supernatural. You must feel free spiritually before you can improve your psychic abilities; you have to let go of your worries before moving into a deeper state of consciousness.
7. To Improve Your Psychometry Skills, Find Objects with a History You Don't Know
Touch these objects until you get strong feelings. Really try to connect with their past. Concentrate for as long as you need to. Can you feel anything about the history of the items or their owners? Don't force your visions. Just touch the item and feel your way through the exercise. Avoid putting too much pressure on yourself. Steer clear of frustration when you feel nothing. This is bound to happen sometimes; not every object has an interesting story behind it.
8. To Hone Your Remote Viewing Abilities, Expand Your Imagination
Remote viewing is the psychic ability to visit places mentally without being there physically. Practice by imagining each place you plan on visiting the next day. Anything from the grocery store or your friends' houses will work. Imagine you are at that location before going to sleep. Note the people, objects, and colors you see in your dream. Take note of which ones match when you actually go there and look around. Write down your dreams to keep them fresh in your mind.
9. Strengthen Your Telepathy by Trying to Read Others' Thoughts
You can also communicate your thoughts to others in complete silence. Practice by guessing what people are thinking whenever possible. Have someone draw pictures or select random playing cards. Then figure out what that person is drawing or which card was drawn from the deck, but without any clues. Keep doing these kinds of exercises daily. Telepathy will take deep concentration at first, and can take years to develop, but it becomes easier and more reliable with time and practice.
When you feel as though you've tried everything, with little or no success, go back and make sure you have been following every piece of advice offered here. Anything worth having is worth earning, so practice wherever you go. It might take really hard work before you hone your skills to perfection. Even if they don't develop for years, trust that they will eventually surface. Believe in yourself! Finally, remember that psychic abilities are given to those who deserve them, and they can be taken away just as easily. Always use your gifts for the greater good of all.

Captain, this was GREAT information! As someone that is only just starting to work on developing myself spiritually, I found this very helpful and informative. Thanks very much for posting this. I am told I have a very strong gift, but am definitely blocking myself with fear and doubt. I will be very anxious to put these techniques to work. Any other insight or advice you might have or pick up specific to me would be greatly appreciated!
Many blessings to you!
Jenlyn, I feel your powers were very strong in a previous life but you were hounded and eventually killed because of them, so in this life you are very fearful of using them. But there is more acceptance now of psychic ability and the acceptance grows stronger every day, the more people come out of the psychic 'closet'..
Wow, very interesting. I was recently told by a psychic friend that she sees me and a girlfriend of mine as dating back to medieval times and that we were much like "witches" who others would come to... perhaps that is somewhat related to what you pick up. My mantra I am repeating to myself is "I'm ready" so hopefully in conjunction with some of your tips I can make some progress in this life. I've just started reading tarot on this board. I catch myself doubting myself and need to be more confident about what I pick up. The positive feedback is really bolstering my confidence. Thanks very much for responding! You are so thoughtful and devoted on this board and I enjoy very much reading your work.
Lots of love and light to you!
Yes though I don't like the word and its present evil connotations, I did hear the word 'witch' when i was reading you.
Thanks for posting the above information. It is always good to be reminded of the positive side of life. We can sometimes forget that we take on the negativities around us and that prevents us from growing within ourselves.
Love and light
I hope that's not bad....
Witches wereand are wise healers.
thank you for enlightening me to the fact.... everyone has the ability but some do not realize it. I have always found the unnatural to be very natural. I have accepted it, and enjoy the glimpses I encounter. I just wish they were more direct. Sometimes I do not understand why I see what I see. Love tarot readings, and I wish my strengh was more along the lines of being able to solve the unsolved cases. Cold cases for the missing or murders. Practice practice practice.
Wish I was able to see the past to see what has made me how I am presently... any suggestions??
Kimscr, you can see your past more clearly than I.
Capatain...thank you for the advice. I just recently noticed I can communicate with animals. Now I am trying to further my abilities with people. I have always been somewhat psychic and have tested very highly when scored on psychic test, such as color and object recognition, etc.
I have noticed lately if I respond to a post where someone is inquiring I end up becoming them in a lot of ways. Even my writing style changes and I feel I am speaking like they speak. Is this part of the way they are read? What is happening? It confuses me actually.
That's empathy, MG.
Thank you Captain..you are probably right there:) I am and have always had a great deal of empathy ~Blessings and Love~.
Wow Wee!! Those 10 points Captain - Very informative but not always easy?? I think you are so lucky to be gifted like that I wish I could be. I am a Scorpion 27/10/54 - and this has always interest me - phychics, mediums, tarots, horoscopes,clairvoyands. I think you are all amazing with talents like that. Could you perhaps tell me what and who I was in a passed life and maybe do a general reading for me?
Not on this discussion thread, Chappies. Try posting separately.
For those interested in developing their abilities, I advise you to look at yourself not as being a rank beginner just starting out and scared of making a mistake and looking foolish, but as the naturally intuitive people we all start our journey as, but then forget our powers more and more as we get distracted by the rigours of material life. You are not a nerdy novice beginning at the bottom of the class - you are a trained and experienced professional who just needs a refresher course in Psychic Ability 101. In that way, it all doesn't seem so scary or overwhelming.
