Learning how to develop psychic abilities is possible by practicing certain techniques to enhance your natural intuition. You may not be aware you have psychic abilities until you tap into and awaken your innate psychic nature during the development process.

How to Develop Psychic Abilities

The first challenge in developing psychic abilities is to open your mind. If you can imagine and accept the possibility that your mind has hidden areas just waiting for you to tap into, you have a greater chance of discovering specific talents, such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, empathy, and other psychic abilities.

Technique One: Open Your Mind With Daily Meditation

You can practice meditation to tap into your subconscious and access these unused areas of the brain. Meditation increases your ability to concentrate and improves your powers of observation.

Meditation Discipline Establishes Psychic Connections

Meditation can help you to tune in to various psychic perceptions as it paves the way into deeper consciousness. Meditation allows you to reconnect with your higher self and reach out beyond this world to the spiritual realms on the other side.

Establishing a Personal Path Into Divine Realm

Each time you meditate, you make your connection to the other side stronger while infusing your psychic abilities with positive divine energies. Eventually, all you'll need to do is focus on your connection, and you'll be plugged in.

Technique Two: Practice Visualization to Unlock Clairvoyance

Visualization is similar to daydreaming, only you have a specific goal to undertake within the imagination framework. This means you'll focus on achieving that goal and manifesting it into your life through the art of creative visualization.

Learning to See With Your Third Eye

Visualization not only manifests your desires, but trains you to see beyond your physical sight. When you engage your imagination during a meditative state, you call forth latent psychic abilities, such as clairvoyance. This practice opens your third eye and strengths your abilities to provide you with premonitions and other information about the future.

Technique Three: Unlock Your Clairaudience Ability

The art of psychic listening is known as clairaudience. You can increase this ability by using your physical hearing to fine tune your clairaudience abilities. The frequency or vibrations of sounds can elevate your personal frequency. This results in lifting your frequency closer to that of the higher realms and those ethereal ones beyond, making it easier to communicate through clairaudience.

Strengthen These Abilities Through Sound

One of the best ways to open up your clairaudience abilities is through sound. You want to be discriminatory about the sounds you select. Only choose music and musical instruments that create higher frequency sounds. Lower frequency music or tones will only lower your frequency with denser vibrations.

  • Classical music is just one example of higher frequency music.
  • String instruments provide sounds with higher vibrations.
  • Singing bowls are exceptional ways to raise your frequency.

Ask a Question and Wait for the Answer

You can combine meditation and sound to open your clairaudience abilities. Once you've established your connection, ask a question and then wait in silence for the response. This practice of sound, meditation, and silence will train you to develop your clairaudience talent, so you can simply turn off the noise surrounding you and listen to what spirit has to say.

Technique Four: Connect to Claircognizance Ability

Claircognizance is often called clear knowing, clear recognition or simply, a knowing. If you possess claircognizance, you can sense the presence of spirits and other disembodied entities. In addition, you have sudden knowledge about other people, even those you've never met. This ability is like a program downloading on a computer, only you are the computer.

Meditation and Third Eye Chakra

The third eye is your gateway to claircognizance. The third eye is the sixth major chakra that provides direct access to the crown chakra that unlocks and gives access to divinity and the realm of enlightenment. You can unblock and stimulate the third eye chakra by repeating ancient mantras and mantras. You can also wear and use chakra crystals to assist in opening your third eye.

Technique Five: Awaken Empath Abilities

Empaths are like magnets for other people's emotions. This ability can create confusion when you're unable to distinguish between your emotions and other people's emotions. You can develop empathic abilities while learning to disentangle from someone else's emotions.

Establish Your Emotional Baseline

The first thing you want to do is establish a baseline for your emotions. Similar to taking your temperature, you want to begin each training session by assessing your emotional state. Once you've established how you're feeling, you can psychically reach out to another person and empathically attempt to pick up what that person is feeling.

  • Focus only on the other person.
  • Engage in a conversation.
  • Block out all distractions.
  • Listen beyond the words being spoken.
  • Pay attention to body language.
  • See past the facade the person presents to you.

Technique Six: Develop Your Mediumship

You can establish communication with spirits and spirit guides. Through meditation and connecting with nature, you'll develop more confidence in your abilities. As you grow stronger in your psychic abilities and raise your frequency, you will come in contact with spirits and spirit guides. These spiritual relationships can provide you with knowledge and assist you in connecting those grieving with their deceased loved one(s).

Your Relationship With Spirit Guides

A spirit guide may be with you for a short time or throughout your life. As you change and grow, your spiritual needs change and grow. A guide helping you in the beginning may not be the ideal guide for you when you strengthen these abilities, so they grow and become more advanced.

Technique Seven: Enhance, Develop and Grow Your Intuition

One of the biggest challenges in learning how to develop psychic abilities is trusting yourself. Your natural powers of intuition are stronger when you're a young child, unless you've been raised to trust your feelings. Oftentimes, children are encouraged to ignore intuition when parents mistaken it for unrealistic fears.

Relearning to Trust Your Intuition

The most important step to regaining confidence and trust in your intuition is to break the old habit of automatically dismissing feelings and impressions you have about people, places, and situations. Instead, focus on what your subconscious is trying to tell you. You should take the time to consider the information you're receiving and then either act on it or dismiss it.

Technique Eight: Discover and Develop Your Psychometry Skill

Psychometry is the psychic ability to hold or touch an object and receive information about those who either owned or held/touched the object. Accomplished psychics/seers/intuitives can read the owner and reveal insightful information about the person.

Practice Reading Information of Objects

Practice your psychometry skills by touching objects and opening your mind to receive the information stored in them. You should first place yourself in a bubble of protective white light or other form of protective shield. This will safeguard you against the empathic pitfall of taking on the emotions of the object's owner as your own.

Technique Nine: Learning to See Auras

You can learn to see auras by using one of the methods for opening your third eye. It is believed that opening the third eye also creates a pathway to this ability. Once you've mastered the technique, spend time each day practicing. You can use this skill along with reiki or other types of energy work to assess a person's various energy layers.

Easy Steps for Seeing Auras

It will require practice, but you can use a quick technique for seeing auras. With persistence, you'll eventually begin to perceive a haze of color surrounding people. Each color indicates something about that person's physical and mental state.

  1. Begin your exercise to see auras by going into a meditative state.
  2. Progress to visualizing individual colors.
  3. When you feel confident in your technique, try to see the aura of a person.
  4. Ask a volunteer to sit calmly with you while you focus on that person's outline.
  5. Let your gaze go out of focus and see if you can detect a halo of color surrounding your volunteer.

Technique Ten: Mastering Astral Projection

Astral projection is another way you can reconnect with the realms beyond this world. While astral projection is something everyone does during sleep, few people recall their journeys, much less exert control over their nightly flights. As a psychic, you can learn how to take control of your astral travels.
