Psychic Development Methods - Get Started Today Towards Developing Your Own Psychic Abilities
This is the point at which we go into some actual methods you can start using to develop your own psychic abilities. I have to mention something first about the appropriate mindset that you must have - In your pursuit for the experience of psychic perception, you discover ways to open yourself up to this unlimited insight. One of the most effective paths is to just have fun with it, play with it.
You will be much more successful if you play with psychic abilities instead of working hard at it. Many of the great thinkers throughout time would agree that every aspect of life is more enjoyable if you are operating from the 'playground of your mind.'
The Art Of Paying Attention - An Important Step In Psychic Development
Paying Attention is one of the simplest ways for you to start to become more open to receiving psychic insights. When we say paying attention, we mean stepping back and seeing everything from a distance.
If you think about it, a dolphin that jumps every now and then, has to perceive the 'underwater life' a little different from the rest of those guys.
Anyway, you can apply paying attention in many ways. When you have a thought, instead of just thinking it and then reacting to it, step back and watch it go by, like a line of words on a blank movie screen or maybe a bubble floating by. This allows you to begin to perceive at a higher level instead of just 'being thought'.
Like an artist that is painting a huge painting - when the artist is up close to the painting, it is difficult for the artist to see anything except what is right in front of his/her face. When the artist steps back ten feet, it then becomes possible for him/her to perceive the painting for what it is, to see the whole product.
Developing Psychic Ability By Seeing Life From An Outside Perspective
Another excellent time to play this game of 'paying attention' is when you have an emotion. Step outside of it and take a look at it. Observe where the sensation is within your body. What shape is it? If you had to give to a temperature, would it be hot or cold? Is it dense or spread out? Where does it exist in relation to the rest of your body or the room you are sitting in?
You have to play with these games of paying attention in the same way that a little toddler plays with a new toy.
The toddler doesn't think a whole lot about it - she hasn't even learned how to think yet. She is more joyful, creative, and open to discovering the toy for what it is.
There is actually no 'her' that is playing with the toy. 'She' (the conditioned, programmed intellect) does not even exist yet. It is more like 'the experience of the toy' for the toddler. The toddler probably has little memory of the toy, just an encounter of the toy in the 'present' moment.
It is in this space beyond your thoughts (or better yet, in between them), the space beyond your emotions, beyond the boundaries of your body, that a greater awareness of who you are lies. It is also in this space that psychic ability exist. You may receive a passing thought out of nowhere, an emotional sensation, or image of something. This is how the psychic process begins.
Although it may seem simple and easy, even ridiculous, don't negate the importance of this exercise.
It's a critical step to take if you truly want to develop and sharpen your own psychic awareness. Yes, there are more advanced methods of opening your psychic ability, but this is the first step.
Here is a funny video from actor Jim Carrey describing his experience of 'paying attention.' Take the time to watch as this puts a light-heated twist on the subject:
So play this game of 'paying attention.' You can try for about ten minutes a day if you like. In a few days, we are going to give you some more games to play that will allow you to develop a greater psychic perception.
