Question: Are you psychic?
Answer: Yes, of course you are!
I believe we all have psychic abilities to some extent, and our abilities can be explored, practiced, and enhanced. Since we know that you have psychic abilities, why not learn about them, learn how to use them to your own advantage, and have a little fun at the same time?
In Tips 1 and 2, we learned how to focus and develop your psychic abilities. Today, in Tip 3, we will test all of our senses and find out which ones are the strongest receivers.
We can’t see all the information and messages that are swirling around in the very air we breathe unless we open one or more of our “receivers” to allow us to recognize and interpret them.
And we have many receivers, among them our five senses; sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. Although there are other ways to “tune in,” such as dreams, meditation and other methods, we will focus on our five senses to find out which ones are the strongest receivers.
It’s just as easy as falling off a log! Oh, and you might want to keep a little notebook handy in case you want to log some of your experiences.
SEEING AND HEARING
There is no need to change your daily routine for this exercise, unless you would just enjoy getting about and around more to enjoy it. It’s all a matter of being in the moment and concentrating on one of your senses.
Let’s take sight first. Do you really pay attention to what you are seeing? As we go about our daily routine, maybe to work at the office and home after work, everything becomes so familiar that it all sort of blends together. Have you ever driven right past your office or your home because you were thinking about something else? I have done that one more than one occasion, and felt embarrassed and kind of amused about it.
But what did I miss seeing? Lots of things; people walking on the street, an odd looking car, a beautiful tree…There could have been a robbery in progress along the way, and I would not have noticed. When you really open up your sense of sight, you will see so many things you weren’t aware of before. As you practice, you will open up your second sight, as well. With time and practice, you may come to realize the car on the road beside you is a red flag for danger. There may be criminals or maybe a gun in that car, and you will be able to change your path to get away from possible danger.
As you become more aware, you will know if or when a child or a dog is going to run out into the street, and act accordingly. I call this having a “knowing.”
You can see how this awareness development works with sight, but you may be wondering how it works with the other senses. Say you concentrated orn sight on Monday, and have chosen to work on hearing on Tuesday.
When you open your sense of hearing, you will become aware of pleasant sounds you did not notice before; birds chirping, rain falling, the hum of distant conversations. It’s particularly interesting to listen to people. You will become able to detect tones of anger coming from a smiling face, or sense hidden amusement or a disguised threatening sound. You don’t even have to see the face. The person behind you in a line at the bank will disclose information the moment they speak, or even with a cough or clearing of the throat. If they are tired, angry, nervous, worried, or impatient, you will know.
Your sense of touch can be very instrumental in your psychic development. You have most likely heard of psychics who helped the police in missing persons or murder cases by touching and holding a personal item, such as a watch. I have my doubts about most of these claims, but I do know that some sensitives can do it. On a smaller scale, it is certainly possible to perceive by touch.
Yesterday, I picked up a deck of tarot cards a friend had given me. The minute I began to shuffle the deck the phone rang, and it was my friend calling from Florida just to say hello. Practice by picking up, touching and holding small objects, and see what thoughts come into your mind.
I had a friend whose sense of smell was her primary psychic sense. She could smell the smoke from a plane crash in another country. If she walked by someone’s house and smelled gas or fumes or smoke, she knew there would be a fire or explosion. This “talent” drove her crazy around New Years or July 4th. She could detect the smell of gunfire, even though she did not see it. Unfortunately, she died in a fiery car crash ten years ago. She knew she would die in a fire.
And last, and probably least, is the sense of taste. As far as psychic senses go, it’s kind of the runt of the litter. It mainly works like Deja Vu by bringing thoughts of what happened in the past or what might happen in the future.
Our sense of taste is so strongly geared to tell us that the chocolate sundae tastes good or there is too much vinegar in the salad dressing, that it is difficult for it to do more. But when you taste something that brings a vague recognition to you, its most likely attached to some event that happened in the past or will happen in the future.
I cannot tolerate the taste of apple pie. I used to enjoy it, but many apple pies arrived at our house after the death of a relative. Following that, each time I ate apple pie, someone died. After I realized what was happening, I never ate another bite of apple pie, and try not to even think about it. However, sometimes I can be enjoying green beans and they suddenly taste like apple pie. Then somebody I know dies.
I don’t mean to scare anyone. It is perfectly harmless to practice enhancing the various psychic receivers. My own experiences are due to an ability that runs in my family, and goes way back to some seventh daughter of some seventh son way back in the misty past.
I hope you will try the various practice techniques, and I feel that you will enjoy then, At the very least, you will become more aware of the world around you.
