It is not just about predicting the future, giving guidance on your destiny, Psychic Skills involve a number of tools that many of us carry within us. You need to be a good listener, be a compassionate friend, and give genuine insight and confidential advice. Psychic Skills are greatly enhanced through experience in dealing with difficult and sometimes very sensitive issues. Psychics come from all walks of life and they may have a background where they have some training which enables them to adopt a sensitive approach during a reading.
Psychic Skills can be developed over time, and sometimes this is something that evolves with each reading and sometimes it can be a shared experience through workshops, seminars and development courses. Sometimes a Psychic can be thrown in the deep end and this is when they put their faith and trust in the universe to put them in the right place. One of the fundamental Psychic Skills is the art of meditation, as it is through the quietness of the mind that the connection is really made between mind, body and spirit.
When people ask me how long have I been a Psychic I say that I have been a developing Psychic since birth. I am constantly gaining more Psychic Skills, I believe that Psychic ability is innate and that often this is an underestimated ability which has yet to be tapped into. I believe that as a child this innate ability is present, however, once we attend school with logical thinking, that side of the brain which is intuitive tends to become dormant. Within the vast universe of the brain is that part of us which knows all that is all seeing and all knowing that is yet to be revealed. There have been stories of people who have recovered from major trauma to the brain such as a car accident who gain a new talent. There have been reports that on waking they can suddenly speak another language or have a particular talent which they didn't have before. Some of these people have even gone on to develop the right Psychic Skills to enable them to practice professionally.
In the past I have worked with developing Psychics who report that their ability seemed to come about after the loss of a loved one. They suddenly seem aware of another dimension they feel a presence and become more aware of little coincidences leading them to believe they now have Psychic ability. Some of these people go on to develop Psychic Skills which enable them to open up to Spirit and communicate on this level. I cannot emphasise enough the importance of developing the right Psychic Skills and particularly some insight into Psychic protection is paramount. This is not to say that they are under attack from every entity in the cosmos as to a certain extent they have protection from above. The topic of Psychic protection is quite a big area and I can go into this in some depth at a later date, so look out for this.
