People frequently ask me “Can I develop my own Psychic Ability ?” and, “How can I develop my Intuition?”

Everybody has intuitive gifts, and more and more people are wanting to learn to tap into that side of themselves. There’s no magical answer though because it’s like every other discipline out there… practice and practice and practice.

Obviously, there are many ways to do practice using your intuition but here is what I find works for me.

I do many readings a day, and I often wonder about my clients, whether their readings have happened yet, or whether things have unfolded as we thought they would. I often have to wait 6 or 12 months, in between seeing my clients before I can find out how their reading unfolded. I am always looking forward to feedback though, and when I get it, I make sure to look at the strengths and weaknesses of what was presented. Looking at how things unfolded, in comparison to how you ‘saw’ them, is the best way to hone your skills, and make sure you are asking spirit all the questions you need to on behalf of your client. Being a good Intuitive or Psychic is not just about your connection to Spirit. It’s also about being a good detective and asking the right questions. If you don’t ask for the right information, you may not get it. It’s the main distinction between a good and a great reading or reader.

Of course, there are other ways to develop your skills too. I have taken to predicting things in my own life and that of my families. A lot of the time I do it out of my own sense of personal impatience!! I want to know when my parcel is coming and how long things will take and so forth. It also gives me faith in myself when things unfold as I expected, and shows me what I need to pay attention to as well.

So here are the things I do to check on my accuracy and ability:

One thing I do is to make a full description of a new person I am going to meet, before I meet them. For example, I needed to pick up a top that I had ”won” on eBay from a girl I had never met before. Prior to going to meet her, I sat down and tried to describe her. I looked at her hair and saw it was frizzy, I saw her figure as curvy and her smile as beaming, and her skin as freckled. I tried to see who she was living with and what type of personality she had. When I went to meet her I was really astounded to see that she fit my description so well.

I will note down in advance of attending an event, my reading/expectation of how it will go. Then after I have attended that event I will compare my experience to my notes. When I’m doing this exercise I always ask to be shown, unexpected events or issues – someone tripping, food being served late, anything of that nature, which tells you – you’re really picking up ‘special information’.

Many people pull a ‘card’ for themselves every morning and make predictions for themselves based on this single card. This is a great method and if it works for you I recommend it highly. I tend to take a more intuitive approach to card reading and look for a ‘story’ to jump out at me. This means that I gravitate towards using at least several cards, as for me so much of a card’s meaning is given to it by its neighbour. I like the idea of reading your cards, using them for meditation purposes, and also for recording your personal insights based on what you see in them. The tarot is a great tool for harnessing your intuition, connecting to spirit, and it’s also deeply fascinating. There is definitely magic in the cards.

I regularly focus on my children and write down what I expect them to be like when I pick them up after school and try to predict any issues that they will have had during their day… same with the husbie…

Sometimes I look for medical issues for my family – colds, flu’s, and predict days home a month in advance and write them on my calendar…. this is actually pretty cool, I never book appointments on the days that I’ve predicted I will have sickies at home. Any exercise that focuses your mind and puts you in touch with your intuition and feelings is great, just remember to also make a note of your experience, these notes really do help you, they teach you how your guides communicate and how to interpret their messages. The more you practice, the better you will become and the easier it will be for you to tune in.

What do you to keep your connection strong and harness your focus and intuition? I’m writing this post hoping that people will want to share. My goal is really to get back to daily meditating which I have found to be the best thing ever, yet at the same time seem to find so hard to make time for!!! With 3 kids and 2 dogs around there is not a lot of quiet time, and I often find that when there is, I fall asleep – but that’s my challenge – meditation …. what about you?

If anyone is interested in more information on this I am happy to put a guide together for you… just not sure if the interest is out there? Let me know!
