Developing Your Innate Psychic Abilities!
By Annette Sassou
If you are like most people who want to develop and use their natural psychic abilities, there will be days that you feel full of energy and other days where you might feel totally drained. This feeling is a good indicator for your energy balance. At the same time you might get feedback from others, such as "You have a great aura!" or "Why are you so negative today?"
As you see, your energy balance is reflected in your aura and others pick up on it. The area around your solar plexus is a great warning system for negative energies around you. The solar plexus, which is located in your stomach area and where your rib cage forms a triangle, is the opening to your energy field. For example:
If you've ever had a "gut feeling" that something was wrong, this is your solar plexus' way of telling you. Keeping your solar plexus protected is crucial to maintaining high energy, which is essential for being able to develop your natural psychic abilities and use them to help achieve your goals.
Sadly, "losing energy" or feeling drained is a reality we are all familiar with. Having low energy can make it hard to do anything, let alone draw out your psychic abilities and use them. Low energy can also open you up to attacks from "negative forces."
We all know someone that can be over-bearing and just 'zaps' or simply drains our energy from us. Some might not even be aware that they are compensating for their loss of energy by soaking it up from others. But this can happen not only by humans. This might happen by entities as well.
As we open up our channels to get in touch with other spirits, angels and entities; go into the depth of our subconscious; or astral travel... we make ourselves receptive for positive energies, but also for negative energies we prefer to live without. Here are seven things you can do to keep your energy high:
- Tip #1 - Establish a Protective Barrier
Every morning and before you do any psychic work, relax for a moment. Count yourself down from 5 to 1 and visualize how a white light is coming from above and flows slowly from your head down your body to your toes. If you like you can try to look at yourself and see yourself surrounded by this white light. This is your protective barrier.
Tell yourself "This protective barrier will let only positive energy in and keeps all the negative energy out!"
Count yourself up from 1 - 5.
- Tip #2 - Be Aware
As you grow in your psychic abilities, you will become more and more acutely aware of your own energy, as well as more attuned to your body's subtle reactions to the environment and to others. This awareness will help you to develop your natural intuition.
- Tip #3 - Eat Properly and Relax
If you feel as if you are drained and excessively tired after being around a certain person, the most effective thing you can do is to regain and reclaim! Sleep, eat and relax. For at least a week or so, you are going to want to keep a regular sleep cycle, eat nutritious balanced meals, and meditate and listen to relaxing music. This will help you to restore your drained energy.
You also might want to start light physical exercise to strengthen your body and turn your chakra wheels.
- Tip #4 - Close Yourself Off
When you encounter a negative person or a negative energy, visualize the white light around you and say in your mind: "I am protected, safe and have no fear!" Sometimes I picture armed bodyguards around myself. Then I visualize how they walk away with the negative entity or person.
- Tip #5 - Aura Cleansing
The aura, as explained earlier, is the energy field that surrounds your body. When it comes to cleansing your aura, it is pretty easy. The next time you are taking a shower or a bath, take some deep breaths and really make an effort to feel the water against your skin.
You will want to visualize that the water is cleansing away all the weak spots you perceive intuitively throughout your body. If you know your strengths are growing at meditation, try visualizing your energy and finding out where any of the weaker spots may be and allow and enable them for healing and change.
If you can actually see auras and their colors, you may be able to actually see the dark spots in your aura and remove them with your increasing 'visualization' skills and growing psychic abilities.
- Tip #6: Cast the Protective Circle
The point of casting a circle is mainly to clean a sacred space for yourself to be protected from negative influences and intent. Remember back to when we set up our meditation space, we drew a symbolic 'circle' not merely to outline our privacy and personal space, but also to keep it intact and protected. This is created so that we can use it when we have finished cleansing our aura. Once this process is complete, it will give you the extra protection that you need to meditate in a safe spiritual environment.
Finally, you will want to almost imagine a "protective bubble" surrounding you and protecting you. State something reassuring to yourself like: "No negative forces or energies may enter through here." This bans fear and creates a safe and secure environment.
- Tip #7: Avoid Drugs & Alcohol
The more you will learn to open yourself up to your psychic mind, the more sensitive you will become to drugs and alcohol - so if you do either you may want to stop. Ingesting drugs and alcohol, besides being damaging to your health, can cause you to lower your protective shield.
