Psychic ability is rooted in the mind, and as such strengthening your psychic abilities is ultimately a matter of strengthening your mental capacity. There are various ways to go about this, but perhaps the most renowned and effective is traditional meditation. Meditation can be practiced in a variety of different ways, and for different reasons. One method is focusing intently upon the part of your mind you wish to strengthen. For purposes of strengthening your psychic ability, you would simply place your attention – your mindfulness – upon that end.
How you go about this, however, can vary. The following exercises are a great place to start:
1. Develop mantras that consist of positive affirmations about you and your ability to develop your psychic ability. Use words like, “can,” “will,” and “am.” This will not directly affect your psychic power, but it will put you in the right state of mind to get started.
2. Create a mental picture of yourself succeeding in your efforts. Truly visualize yourself in possession of the new abilities you wish to hone. Great thinkers from Napoleon Hill to Rhonda Byrne have stressed that mentally seeing – and focusing upon – your success can lead directly to your actually succeeding in life.
3. Look back upon any instances in which you have had psychic experiences so far. Consider all the details leading up to that moment, the moment itself, and what happened afterward. Meditate upon the most finite details of that experience, and identify which of those details could be replicated. If this has happened before, you can very likely make it happen again by being conscious about how it came about in the first place.
Of course, you will need to be diligent in your efforts. Allocating time to meditate on a regular and frequent basis is highly recommended for the best results. Over time and with regular attention, you will begin to see vast improvements.
As these improvements become apparent, you will also notice a change in your overall mindset. You will find yourself entering a different level of consciousness, perhaps unexpectedly. This change, however, is to be welcomed. It will help you to reach your psychic potential, and is reflective of the strengths you have worked to achieve. The ultimate goal is to consciously enter into this altered state, and to willfully work with and within it. Doing so will enable you to make best use of your new skills.
Teaching yourself to become psychic is not impossible, but it is a difficult and long process that requires your dedication, perseverance and commitment. These are only the first of many steps you will need to take to reach your potential, but they will propel you onto a truly extraordinary path that is well worth the effort.
