Becoming Psychic - Pink Rose

Yes, You Can Become Even More Psychic/Intuitive!


Recognizing that you are already receiving and using your intuition/psychic abilities.

TIP:  Begin a psychic training journal! Write about at least 5 instances where you have already received psychic information/guidance from inner impressions (types of psychic abilities) or outer sources (like hearing a song, overhearing a conversation, seeing a license plate, suddenly knowing an answer, etc.)

Continue to record tips you find useful, and your daily psychic impressions, dreams and experiences. This will help you with seeing your progress and with gaining self-confidence. It will also help you remember and then interpret the fleeting nuances you experience as you are expanding your awareness.

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
~Henry David Thoreau


Having excitement and positive expectations about participating in psychic/intuitive development and getting more in touch with who you really are!

TIP:  Write your positive expectations about your intuitive/psychic development in your journal as a way to clarify what you want to get out of it, stir up your excitement and empower your experiences.

"Nobody succeeds beyond his or her wildest expectations
unless he or she begins with some wild expectations."
~Ralph Charell


Recognizing that everyone can have greater and greater access the psychic information that is always available to them.

TIP:  On this website, for inspiration you can read some psychic/intuition quotes and instinct quotes . For even more exposure to experiences beyond the five senses being universal, I will have an upcoming article on intuitive/psychic famous stories.


Creating space for your psychic training program.

TIP:  Create a home sanctuary where you can go every day to meditate, journal, and focus on your perceptive development undisturbed. Even if it’s just a small corner of a room, make it sacred in whatever way feels good to you.

Releasing Resistances – Who Needs Them, Anyway?


Developing Intuition - Yoga In The Desert

Recognizing and replacing negative, sabotaging beliefs or behaviors that may be interfering with your upliftment and expansion.

TIP:  Your energy field mirrors your chosen thoughts and feelings. Your lens of psychic perception is clearest when your energy reflects the most pure and expanded states of unconditional love and appreciation and joy.

So you want to be feeling and resonating energetically with love more often than fear. You can explore possible healing supports if they ring true for you, like bodywork, energywork, coaching, yoga, tai chi, intuitive healing, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), using healing oils, healing with color, healing with sound, healing with crystals, learning how to appreciate and how to forgive, etc.

“To embody and flow the Love that we are involves embracing and then releasing the defensive thoughts and feelings that keep us from our natural state of being.”
~Karen Whitaker


Examining your openness to changing and growing in psychic awareness, including adopting a worldview of trust.

TIP:  Journal any negative beliefs, fears, or resistances that you may have related specifically to developing your psychic/intuitive abilities.

What experiences would you like to have instead? Spend some time each day imagining (with positive feeling) a scenario where your life experience includes easily and joyfully opening to greater psychic awareness. What thoughts would you think? What would your life feel like?

Bask in these chosen feelings to shift your vibration and allow yourself to blossom more in awareness.

TIP:  Do you learn and grow better with the love and encouragement of a positive support person or people? Maybe you have a trusted friend who would like to be your psychic workout buddy – you could coach each other as you both develop your psychic abilities!

"Fear inspires you to conclude and criticize and contract;
love inspires you to wonder and appreciate and expand.
Your true nature is love."
~Karen Whitaker


Loving, honoring and trusting yourself.

TIP:  Positive affirmations are powerful, present-tense self-scripts you choose to “reprogram” your negative thoughts or beliefs about everything.

They could be about your general well-being, worthiness to unconditionally receive good in all forms (including success in opening up further to your intuition/psychic ability), and any beliefs about money, health, and relationships. Speaking positively about yourself, to yourself and others is affirming yourself. The power is in you and your positive feeling vibration.

Using positive affirmations as you radiate a positive feeling vibration, you can line up with the truth of your Being, including its reflection in the psychic information you receive.

TIP:  Choose to give life to your most powerful and positive self-image every day! You get to create the mental image you have of yourself, your self-portrait, no matter what self-image you may have learned or chosen in the past.

Consciously creating positive and joyful visualizations of yourself replaces any habitual ones that just plain don’t feel good. Move into greater psychic awareness more and more in alignment with your true reflection!

"Our self image, strongly held, essentially
determines what we become."
~Maxwell Maltz


Understanding how you perceive God (whatever your name for your Source is) and yourself in relation to your God.

TIP:  Journal what you have been taught and what you have experienced in relation to God. How do you see your God? Is your God a friendly and unconditionally loving one? A God that is outside of yourself, inside, or both?

Making peace with your relationship with God, and continually choosing your most empowered Vision of this relationship lays an easier foundation for communicating directly with God within. Know that whatever you believe about your God, you can focus on positive attributes of God as a way to align yourself energetically with the highest Truth.

"God has no religion."
~Mahatma Gandhi


Becoming Psychic, Clarity - White Balloon in White Cloud SkyBeginner's Mind Clarity

Choosing to have beginner’s mind - setting aside any preconceived ideas you might have about psychic training, your psychic development and about potential psychic answers you receive from the questions you ask.

TIP:  To experience beginner’s mind, watch and let your mind’s prejudging thoughts change shape and dissipate like white fluffy clouds on a windy day.

"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities,
but in the expert's mind there are few."
~Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki

Becoming More Receptive To Intuitive Wisdom


Allowing your body to become more relaxed to help your mind to become more still and receptive to psychic information.

TIP:  Find out what relaxation exercises work best for you to release physical tension that may otherwise distract your psychic training.


Using mindfulness to open to being more present, centered, allowing and attentive.

TIP:  Mindfulness as a way of focusing (and a way of being) can help you to be more available to receiving psychic/intuitive information. You may want to use mindfulness exercises to learn or further develop your mindfulness practice.

"I am always in quest of being open to what the universe will bring me."
~Jill Bolte Taylor


Knowing how to listen to your body about the best eating and exercising choices for you (I need to say here - also with the OK of your medical practitioner).

developing-intuition-have-fun-exercisingExercising As You Are Intuitively Guided To Do

TIP:  Poor eating and lack of exercise can hamper your psychic capacity with excess toxins in your body. So have fun eating and exercising in a way you enjoy and are guided by your body to do!

Exercising with your feet rhythmically contacting the ground (like walking) is especially good at helping you become more grounded, too.

"Our bodies communicate to us clearly and
specifically, if we are willing to listen to them."
~Shakti Gawain

Using deep breathing to still your body and mind, and increase psychic awareness.

TIP:  Use deep breathing exercises that work best for you in your psychic training, and any time you notice you are taking more shallow breaths.


Making friends with silence.

TIP:  Silence makes it easier to hear and perceive intuition/psychic information, and to send out a clearer-intended vibration (to attract what is in your heart).

Remember that true silence involves not only a rest from speaking, but also quieting your body, thoughts, and emotions. How would you like to introduce more silence into your day today?

“Better than a thousand hollow words,
is one word that brings peace.”

Be the BIG LOVE you are!
