How To Boost Your Psychic Ability
Whether you're looking to enhance your ability to divine the future, communicate with the deceased or tap your psi to heal others, there are a few basic steps you can take to increase your ability. Believe it or not, the first, and most important step you can take doesn't start with the mind. It starts with the vehicle through which the mind exists: The body. If the body is in a state of disrepair, or disharmony, it will not function optimally. Therefore, it is important that you keep your body healthy and strong so that it can provide the best foundation for your mind to grow. Think of the body as being the soil for the seeds of the mind to grow in. Nourish the soil, and the plants will grow. Neglect the soil, and the plants may still grow, but they won't grow to their full potential and will certainly produce far less desirable results. If you want a strong psi, your best bet is to start with a healthy, strong body. Since we're on the subject of healthy bodies, I would like to add that part of being healthy is being conscious about what goes into your body. You want to avoid toxins such as cigarette smoke, drugs and anything in excess. These things pollute and harm your body and quite simply, will get in the way of any serious psi endeavor.
Proper nutrition, adequate rest and plenty of exercise are an important part of maintaining healthy body. But there are two things that many people overlook when considering the overall health of the mind/ body system: Hydration and Oxygenation. The body is an amazing complex electrical system, comprised of 80% water and billions of neurons and nerve cells that work together to create our complete sensory experience of the world. Our bodies are designed to mix just the right amount of water and oxygen to keep those electrical systems working their best. So it makes sense then, that we should keep our bodies adequately hydrated and oxygenated. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is a sure and easy way of staying hydrated. But how exactly does one "oxygenate" the body? Exercise and proper breathing both provide the best way to oxygenate the body properly. Exercise forces the body to take in more air, increasing oxygen throughout the body. Deep breathing techniques accomplish the same, but don't have the added bonus of burned calories, a strengthened and toned body and overall general fitness that simple deep breathing does. However, it does induce a deep state of relaxation which is definitely conducive to working with psi. A combination of both good exercise and time spent doing some simple deep breathing should yield some very satisfactory results.
Now that you've taken care of the body, it's time to turn your attention to the mind. The old cliche, "Practice makes Perfect" is absolutely true here. If you don't work on developing your skills, you won't progress. But where does one begin? At the beginning of course! The best way to start out is to work on meditation. Daily meditation (even if just for 10 minutes at a time) can reduce blood pressure, lower anxiety levels and train the brain to work in a more relaxed state, which is where psi stems from. To boost your ability, start with a minimum daily meditation practice and gradually increase the amount of time you meditate over time. This will not only help you gain control over your thoughts, but allow you to "program" yourself to enter into stillness whenever needed.
Once you've gotten really good at meditating, it's time to get a little more involved. Begin by keeping a journal of all your "impressions" on things, both good and bad. So if you meet someone for the first time, record what you thought of them and any other impressions or information you may have gotten. Do the same for any deja'vu, gut feelings and dreams. Keeping a journal allows you to obtain greater insights into things you may have otherwise just dismissed and trains you to pay attention to those psi impressions, rather than just dismissing them. Once you've gotten good at your journal work, move on to divining. Develop a daily practice of using a form of divination, whether it is a Tarot deck, pendulum or a set of runes. Keep your questions simple and to the point. Record your results. You'll find that as you practice, it will become almost secondary and you will eventually get to the point, where you can ask a question and not even need the tool for the answer. Remember that each tool is simply an extension of your mind, a link if you will between your subconscious and the information that is already available to you.
Last but not least, learn to listen. And by listen, I don't just mean with your ears. Learn to pay attention to the subtle hints that the universe often throws out at you. Some people call them synchronicities, others call them signs. But whatever they are called, those little random events that scream to you to pay attention, are there for a reason. And once you learn to read the patterns, a whole new world of understanding will open up.
So take care of your body, watch your water and oxygen intake and spend time daily in practice and you will not only be able to increase your psi ability, but enrich your experience in daily life as well.
