#1 Tip To Increase Your Psychic Ability- Spiritual Practice

Jul 11, 2016 by

You must commit to a spiritual practice in order to increase and develop your psychic ability. There really is no getting around this. Here’s a great analogy—if you want to get in shape, you must work out—and there’s no getting around that either! It’s just that straightforward.

 

Spiritual practice is the psychic’s version of working out. We’ll only get to a certain level of personal, psychic, and spiritual development before we’re stopped dead in our tracks if we don’t pick up and keep a spiritual practice. I believe that psychic ability is a byproduct of the larger and more important goal of spiritual development anyway.

 

There are some psychics who have done psychic work but no personal or spiritual growth work, and although they might have a good connection and raw talent, they’re often terrible psychics who mess up their clients pretty good.

 

So what exactly is a spiritual practice?

 

Spiritual practices come in many forms. I don’t think it really matters so much what you do, as long as you pick something and stick with it.

 

Example of Popular Spiritual Practices:
  • Sitting/breath or concentration meditation
  • Guided meditation
  • Mantra meditation or chanting (kirtan)
  • Prayer of any kind (Love the rosary!)
  • Yoga
  • Tai-chi and Qigong
  • Walking meditation- best done in nature

 

If we want to increase out psychic ability, we must make space to get quiet, receptive, and learn how to listen. All spiritual practices quiet the mind, and clear and open the 6th and 7th chakras, which is what we need to be able to hear our guides. I’m a big fan of sitting meditation and do 20 minutes of it every day, quite religiously (Don’t mind the pun!). But I think sitting meditation is the hardest one to start with. If you want to do sitting meditation (sitting still and quieting your mind) it’s best to take a class and learn a technique that will help you.

 

Many people do better with guided meditations when beginning a practice. If you have an extra busy mind, manta meditations and chanting are very effective at quieting busy brains. Some people really can’t and shouldn’t do sitting meditation, and must stick with a body practice. If you are dissociated when you begin, a body based practice will benefit you more than sitting meditation. Try a gentle yoga or Tai-chi. Gym yoga or very vigorous flow yoga, aren’t great beginning choices. Stick with gentle hatha yoga if you’re looking for a meditative practice.

 

We Westerners have yoga all backwards. You should do 20 minutes of yoga to clear your energy field, and then 20-30 minutes of meditation afterwards. Yoga is designed to clear out your energy meridians and physical body so that you can meditate without feeling all blocked and kinked up. We tend to do it backwards in the USA; 50 minutes of yoga and only 5 minutes or so of meditation at the very end. This is why gym yoga doesn’t really count; it’s designed as a workout, not as a meditation practice.

 

Empaths do particularity well with a go walk the dog kind of meditation, especially if they can walk in the woods. Being out in nature clears the energy field naturally and easily, and calms and clears the whole system.

 

When you’re first starting a spiritual practice aim for five times a week, 10 to 15 minutes at a time, and grow it from there if you can. I do about 30 minutes of sitting meditation every night before I go to bed. Some people prefer the morning, but I like making it my bedtime ritual. I make sure I have my journal handy, and if I’m feeling riled up, I’ll journal for a while. I’ll pull my cards and record them as I think about what they mean to me. And then I do 20 minutes of breath-based, sitting meditation until I feel my mind go flat and calm. The gifts that come from a spiritual practice are plentiful. I’m using meditation as an example here, but the same things can be said for yoga.

 

Benefits of a Spiritual Practice
  • Helps with mood and stress levels.
  • Significantly lowers cortisol, the stress hormone.
  • Balances other hormones and brain chemistry.
  • Opens your pineal gland, the location in the brain that creates psychic ability and is our connection to the Divine.
  • Opens the 6th (brow) chakra, which is the center for psychic ability.
  • Opens the 7th (crown) chakra, which is where we feel our connection to the Divine and infinite possibility.
  • Quiets the mind so that we can be receptive to what our guides say.
  • Strengthens the immune system.
  • Creates relaxation.

 

Find something that works for you; your guides will be so happy that you’re creating an opening for them and listening! If you consistently do these things—journaling, divination, meditation or other spiritual practice—your psychic ability will grow!
