Everyone is born with psychic potential.

Fascinatingly, there's a growing interest among individuals today in exploring their spiritual gifts, psychic abilities, or what some might call their "superpowers." The exact phrasing can vary, but the essence remains consistent. However, I would love to share my personal story of how I embraced my psychic abilities and learned how to enhance them with psychic tools. In doing so, I hope to show you how to use psychic tools to develop your own psychic abilities. Shall we begin this spiritual conversation...

What Does It Mean to Be Psychic?

Let’s start with the term “psychic,” which is often used as a catchall phrase for anyone who works in the paranormal. Being “psychic” isn’t something otherworldly or unnatural. It involves the five senses, such as sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. But, and most importantly, it involves another sense that is just as real as the other five. It is our sixth sense, called “intuition,” which is at the root of our psychic ability of inner knowing (internal compass or gut feeling/ hunch) of things that you cannot logically explain. Everyone is intuitive, but some are stronger than others.

Signs of Psychic Awakening

Since my spiritual awakening, people have asked me how I enhance my psychic abilities. A spiritual awakening is not a linear path with a finish line. It’s a lifetime commitment. Staying dedicated to your higher self ensures that, despite the chaos your journey may entail, your overall direction remains upward. You begin to live your life as your most authentic self, and you operate at a higher level of consciousness. Your task now is to do everything you can to nourish your soul and maintain that level of consciousness. Now, here are a few signs of what a spiritual awakening feels like…

  • Body shivering or trembling: Our bodies house chakras that activate during spiritual ascension or awakening, emitting energy that can overwhelm the system, leading to shivering or trembling.
  • Feeling drawn to metaphysical things: A pull towards metaphysics and spiritual practices like Reiki, meditation, and yoga may indicate your readiness for spiritual growth, guided by your inner wisdom.
  • Throbbing or other sensations on the top of your head: Sensations at the crown of your head, especially during significant celestial events like full moons or eclipses, could signal activation of your crown chakra, connecting you to the divine source.
  • Heat on hands and feet: Sensations of warmth in your hands and feet may signify the transfer of higher energies and a sense of balance and grounding in the physical realm.
  • Tingling sensation between eyebrows: Commonly experienced during meditation, tingling between the eyebrows suggests activation of the third eye chakra, enhancing intuition and spiritual insight.
  • Vivid dreams: Connection to universal consciousness and ascension to higher dimensions may manifest through vivid dreams, particularly during relaxed states such as meditation or sleep.
  • Buzzing in the ears: As you attune to a higher vibrational frequency, you may perceive buzzing in your ears, indicating heightened sensory awareness and receptivity.
  • Feeling more empathy and compassion: Increased sensitivity to others' energies may lead to heightened empathy and a capacity for pure, unconditional love.
  • Feeling at peace with the darkness: Embracing darkness as an integral part of your spiritual journey signifies a profound sense of peace and liberation from fear-driven perspectives.
  • Increased sensitivity: Heightened awareness of sensory stimuli may result in increased sensitivity to lights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch, leading to a deeper connection with one's surroundings.
  • Depression or anxiety: Disruption of familiar patterns and beliefs during spiritual awakening can trigger feelings of depression or anxiety as the ego grapples with change.
  • Seeing through illusions: Expanded consciousness allows for clarity in perceiving societal illusions, leading to a deeper understanding of one's true essence beyond material constructs.
  • Heightened intuition: Increased openness to intuitive guidance enables the reception of subtle messages and signs from spiritual guides, facilitating inner guidance.
  • Awareness of negative habits: Heightened self-awareness may lead to a recognition of negative habits, prompting a desire for positive change guided by spiritual growth.
  • Feeling disconnected from everyone: Elevation of your frequency may result in the distancing of relationships not aligned with your spiritual journey, allowing space for personal growth.
  • Personality changes: As the ego diminishes, authentic self-expression emerges, leading to shifts in preferences and behaviors reflective of spiritual growth.
  • Feeling the need to purge: The urge to detoxify physically, emotionally, and spiritually signifies a readiness to release toxicity and embrace positive change.
  • Feeling angry: Acknowledging and processing emotions, including anger, without judgment, is integral to spiritual growth, allowing for emotional release and healing.
  • Fatigue: Intense energetic shifts may result in temporary fatigue as the body integrates new frequencies and adjusts to heightened awareness.
  • Feeling great: A sense of lightness and joy signifies alignment with higher vibrations and spiritual growth, leading to an elevated state of being.

How Using Psychic Tools Enhances Your Natural Psychic Ability

Many psychics are naturally drawn to different tools that take on different spiritual modalities. Primarily, our physical bodies are like intuitive pendulums. We can’t help but be pulled towards tools that resonate with the abilities inside us, even if those abilities are dormant the first time we pick up our soon-to-be favorite tool. Pay attention to what calls to you. When you work with them regularly it sets up a positive feedback loop that only gets stronger as time goes on.

Types of Psychic Abilities

The current energies called chakras help regulate all our senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell, and our sixth sense, called “intuition,” which is our psychic ability of inner knowing. As an intuitive empath and psychic medium, I work heavily with that sixth sense. But there are many types of way intuition can be expressed as a psychic gift.

When it comes to mediumship, there’s so much more involved because a medium is opening him/herself to a discarnate energy. Mediumship itself can be broken down into various categories: mental mediumship, physical mediumship, trance mediumship, and animal communication.

Also, you have the “clair” senses which fall into several distinct types when working with mediumship or other psychic abilities.

  • Clairsentience (clear feeling): Able to perceive information by way of emphatic feelings and emotions from spirits.
  • Clairvoyant (clear vision): Able to see with the third eye, things like objects, colors, symbols, people, spirits, or scenes. These pictures are not visible to the naked eye and usually flash into the psychic’s mind.
  • Clairaudient (clear hearing): Able to perceive sounds or words from sources broadcasting from a spiritual realm.
  • Clairempathy (clear emotion): Able to sense or "feel" within oneself the attitude or emotions of another person.
  • Clairgustance (clear tasting): Able to discern the essence of a substance through taste from spirits.
  • Clairalience (clear smelling): Able to smell a fragrance or odor coming from the spirits.
  • Clairtangency (clear touching): Able to perceive information about an article or its owner or history by holding an object or by touching someone or something. This ability is also known as psychometry.

A Beginner's Guide to Psychic Tools

How to Use Tarot and Oracle Cards for Psychic Development

The tarot is a deck of 78 cards, each with its own imagery, symbolism, and story. The 22 Major Arcana cards represent life's karmic and spiritual lessons, and the 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the trials and tribulations that we experience on a daily basis.

There are different versions of tarot decks, some specifically created to help you to learn to use it to enhance your intuitive/psychic abilities. Just be mindful that it takes consistent practice with the tarot to master it in a way that works for you. Remember that there are diverse ways and methods of interpreting the tarot, so every psychic will have their own way of reading the cards. Do some experimenting to see what works for you.

Unlike tarot cards, oracle cards do not follow a specific hierarchy or structure and have meaning based on the creator’s preferences and creativity. They are typically much easier to learn and can provide insights that are extremely helpful to those trying to increase the volume of their inner voices. As with tarot, there are various kinds of oracle cards as well. Usually, a psychic will be drawn to a certain deck of oracle cards that resonates with his/her spirit.

Using Pendulums for Psychic Intuition Training

A pendulum is a great tool for yes and no answers. Parapsychologists believe the pendulum moves by the ideomotor effect, whereby our own muscular system is responsible for moving it. This means that we are subconsciously answering our own questions. A pendulum is used for finding lost objects and identifying spirit guides and energies in a room. Overall, the more you use a pendulum, the clearer your inner voice will become.

Psychic Awakening with Crystals

Crystals wield significant power and serve as protective allies for those seeking to enhance their psychic abilities. Black tourmaline stands out for its prowess in shielding against negative energies and entities. Labradorite, often referred to as the "wizard's stone," offers potent spiritual protection, facilitating connections with spirit guides and safeguarding individuals during readings.

These and other crystals can be carried, worn as jewelry, or incorporated into divination and meditation practices. Many energy workers rely on crystals to fortify their energy fields and maintain spiritual protection.

Binaural Beats for Psychic Development

Scientific research indicates that listening to binaural beats can induce brainwave patterns akin to those experienced during meditation, as evidenced by electroencephalogram (EEG) readings. This finding holds significance, especially for individuals grappling with persistent mental chatter or difficulties in maintaining regular meditation practice. To augment this effect, many people incorporate nature sounds or subliminal messages into their binaural beat sessions.

For those seeking to enhance psychic abilities or extrasensory perception (ESP), elevate their vibration, or awaken their third eye, I recommend selecting binaural beats explicitly designed for these purposes.

Extra Spiritual Tips to Enhance Your Psychic Abilities

Journaling: You might question how writing could enhance psychic abilities but stay with me on this. Engaging in journaling by documenting your experiences, deciphering symbolism, and recording messages from your dreams or interpretations of signs and symbols (such as feathers, pennies, or encounters with deceased loved ones, angels, and spirit/animal guides) proves immensely beneficial on your spiritual journey.

Maintaining a written record not only bolsters your confidence in your skills, it also facilitates reflection on past experiences and interpretations. Like rewatching a movie and grasping more of the storyline with each viewing, reviewing your journal entries may lead to a deeper understanding of messages or nuances that were overlooked initially. This process becomes especially pronounced as your psychic abilities evolve, allowing you to glean insights more clearly and notice subtleties that escaped notice previously.

Regular Meditation: Meditation serves as a straightforward method for honing your psychic abilities. By engaging in meditation, you can establish a connection with your source energy and elevate your vibration within the universe. Dedicate 10–20 minutes daily to meditation, preferably in the early morning hours.

For variety, alternate between guided meditations and free-flowing meditation sessions. When opting for guided meditations, select ones with positive intentions. Experiment with different instructors and soundscapes until you discover what resonates with you. Consistent practice is key, so commit to an instructor or message that you feel compelled to continue with.

The list of spiritual modalities can go on and on, such as:

  • Clear blockages that affect you on a spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical level through Reiki or other energy work.
  • Practicing seeing auras and learning Reiki to understand the chakras better, too.
  • Practicing with other spiritual decks, especially with angels, animal spirits, past lives, or chakra cards (the list goes on; just go where your spirit resonates).

A Simple Meditation Practice to Improve Psychic Awareness

  1. Find a quiet, comfortable space in your home, minimizing distractions.
  2. Sit upright and allow your body to relax.
  3. Close your eyes or focus on a stationary object like a burning candle.
  4. Direct your attention to your breath, observing the sensations as air flows in and out of your lungs.
  5. Should your mind wander, gently guide your focus back to your breath.

Psychic Abilities and Spiritual Awakening Journey: My Personal Story

Now, let’s put a little focus on myself as I explain my spiritual journey. Ever since I was a child (around three years old), I have had the gift of spiritual mediumship. I saw deceased loved ones, angels, and other spirit forms that I couldn’t explain when I was younger. I knew I was safe and protected, but I always knew that I was different from others. I was also an extraordinary, perceptive child with a super gift of intuition. I saw auras and predicted things that came to fruition which freaked people out, including my mother.

However, I was a child with an inquisitive mind who wanted to learn and think outside the box. I had a father who was an intellectual and encouraged me to see spirituality in a different light. He also wanted me to explore my options for understanding religion, science, history, philosophy, or anything that resonates with my spirit. He always said, “Knowledge is power.”

When I grew up, I kept my psychic abilities a secret from my family and friends. I didn’t let anyone know about my gifts. I didn’t really want to scare people off or be judged as if I was an alien from another planet. I learned to mask my identity (like a superhero with a secret identity) throughout my teenage and early college years.

In my mid-twenties, I had an important spiritual awakening that activated my spiritual core to wake up my higher self. From my spiritual awakening in my twenties leading up to the present day of being 47, I have embarked on a 23-year journey where I learned to become more comfortable with my spiritual self and embrace my higher purpose in life. Overall, I walk my spiritual path with love and light.

Today, I am a psychic that wears many spiritual hats. I have been working in the holistic field for 23 years. I possess a wide range of healing modalities, including being a psychic medium, intuitive empath, and having the abilities of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairempathy, and clairsentience. I am also an Akashic Records Reader, Reiki Practitioner, Empowerment Life Coach, Writer, Therapeutic Art Coach, Relationship & Career Consultant, a Wedding Officiant, and I have a background in broadcasting and hypnosis. In addition to my psychic work, I have also traveled to different cities, participating in holistic and wellness events, where I conducted workshops.

My Final Thoughts

Enhancing your psychic abilities is all about regular practice.  Everyone has a spiritual journey in life. Everyone is also spiritually gifted, because we are still spiritual beings having a human experience on Earth.

In early April, amidst the second Mercury Retrograde in Aries of 2024 and ahead of the Solar Eclipse on April 8th, I celebrated my 47th birthday. These celestial events coincide with a palpable sense of transitional energies reverberating throughout the world, intertwining our experiences. This juncture offers a valuable opportunity for profound self-reflection and reassessment of our priorities, urging us to release that which no longer aligns with our higher purpose, while embracing what will propel us forward into the future. Over the next decade, we anticipate a significant spiritual awakening, fostering a deeper connection with our spiritual essence as we ascend to higher vibrations. The crux lies in how we choose to acknowledge and embrace our individual spiritual journeys.

Your spiritual awakening helps unlock your higher purpose and, of course, your authentic, higher self. Start with the activities you feel the most comfortable doing and what resonates with your spirit. Later, move onto the more challenging exercises as you develop your abilities. Soon, you’ll find yourself more confident about unlocking your psychic abilities or what I call your “superpowers,” just as I did.

Blessings with love and light.
