During the previous article, you came to a clearer understanding of psychic ability including the four categories of psychic talent and the need for protection when expanding your gifts. During this article you will be taught a series of exercises useful in developing the various aspects of your own gifts.
The exercises used here are designed to develop your clairvoyance, clairsentience and clairaudience. I have yet to determine practices that specifically develop Claircognisance, although it does seem to develop as your other abilities grow.
Before you commence the exercises, remember to set up the protection tools introduced in the previous article. If you already have protection tools that you feel more comfortable with, by all means use those instead.
Once you have completed your practice and development session, make sure you ground yourself. Grounding is being fully connected to your physical body and the Earth. You can become ungrounded in a number of ways, but one of them is by working with your psychic gifts. When you do this work, you raise the level of psychic light or energy that is running through your conscious mind to the point where it can become unsettled and you can feel lightheaded, vague, disconnected. To remedy this, simply do something very physical. Wash the dishes, eat some food, dance to music with a heavy base or beat, or step outside and walk around barefooted on the Earth. These are all easy to follow actions that will bring you fully back into your body.
The first procedure you'll be introduced to in this article, is an exercise designed to help you identify your current level of skill in each of the four psychic areas. Please do not put too much emphasis in the results of this exercise, merely use it as a guide for helping you understand your current standing with these talents.
In The Kitchen
For this exercise, please use all aspects of your imagination. Experience this exercise in whatever way is easiest for you. Make sure you are comfortable, and that you won't be disturbed. Remember to relax and enjoy this.
You find yourself in the most beautiful kitchen with a great big picture window looking out over lovely forest. See the trees swaying in the gentle breeze, watch as some lovely kookaburras land in a tree and begin to cackle, laughing away as you listen to their delightful sound! Your attention is drawn back in to the kitchen when you feel heat on your leg. You remember that you are cooking a beautiful, chocolate cake!
Just as you remember this, the smell of chocolate cake comes wafting through the air! There's nothing like the smell of baking to make your stomach rumble! Then, just as you think you can't wait any longer, the buzzer or bell goes off on your oven. You grab some oven mits and open the oven door, careful to avoid the rush of steam that pours out of the oven. You take out the cake and place it carefully on the bench. When it has cooled a little, you tip it out on the rack, and decorate it in whichever way you wish, icing sugar, cream, frosting.
Now here you have this beautiful chocolate cake and you just have to have a piece, so get a knife and cut into it. Watch (and smell) the steam rising out of the freshly baked cake. Pick up your piece and take a big bite out of it. That is the most perfect chocolate cake you have ever tasted!
When you are ready, return to the room, wiggle your fingers and toes to bring your consciousness fully back into your body.
So the questions are:
- Did you see the kitchen, the forest, the kookaburras?
- Did you hear the kookaburras laughing, the oven bell going off?
- Did you feel the heat, taste and smell the cake?
- Was any of this experienced more as a ‘knowing'?
- How easy was it to experience all of these things?
- How clearly did you see, hear, feel all of these things?
- Which was the easiest, seeing, feeling or hearing?
- Which was the hardest?
The answers to these questions will provide some insight into where your more developed gifts lie and where your least developed gifts are. It is important to recognise that every individual's experience of their gifts is just that. . .individual. People can spend a lot of wasted time, lamenting the gifts and psychic experiences that others have and that they dont, instead of exploring and developing the wonderful gifts they do have. Let go of preconceived notions of what constitutes a psychic experience and begin opening up to the wonderful gifts you have been given!
So, on to the psychic development exercises. I encourage you to practice each of these, even when you feel you are getting nowhere, you will be making crossroads at some level. Remember for every session to protect yourself prior to starting and ground yourself once you've finished.
If at any time you experience responses that invoke fear or discomfort, immediately call on God or Archangel Michael, to take you out of ego (fear and darkness) and into the light. Allow yourself to be lifted above any negativity.
Exercises for Clairvoyance - Clear Psychic Seeing
1. Seeing Colours The first level to begin developing your clairvoyance is simply by visualising. Start with colours, imagine seeing the colour sky blue, magenta, red, emerald green and so on. If you have difficulty doing this, then buy some pieces of coloured cardboard from the local newsagent. Choosing one piece of cardboard, look at the colour for a while, then when you feel ready, close your eyes and imagine the colour. Imagine a stapler that colour, or imagine your house painted that colour. Try to become accomplished in seeing as many different colours as you can. When you feel that you've mastered this exercise, move on to the next.
2. Seeing Auras Now that you have become comfortable with colours, you can move on to seeing auras. This is the first level of this skill, but an important one. Think of someone that you know. Using your imagination, answer this questions. If you could see that person's aura in full colour around their head area, what colour/s would you see? Remember that there's no pressure, no one needs to know what you are doing. This is purely for the exercise of it. Keep moving around their body, imagining what colours you would see there. Practice this using a number of people you know and those you don't know like politicians, celebrities and the like. Practice it on tv personalities, whilst watching television. Before you know it you will be fluent in aura speak!
Exercise for Clairaudience - Clear Psychic Hearing
It is important, when dealing with Clairaudience, to understand that psychic hearing, although sometimes can feel like physical hearing, is often experienced more as talking in your head. No, you are not crazy if you experience this form of communication!
Receiving messages and writing them down has been a powerful healing and guidance tool since time began. This is also a wonderful tool to use to develop your clairaudience.
Archangel Michael is a beautiful and divine creation of God, who lovingly and joyfully supports, guides and protects each of us. Archangel Michael is very easy to hear, he is also very acurate in his messages. For this reason he is wonderful to work with in developing your clairaudience.
Archangel Michael's Messages
Have a pen and paper to write down any messages you get. Get comfortable and make sure you will not be disturbed. Do your protection exercises then. . .
Call Archangel Michael to you and say to him, “What would you have me know right now?" Then open up and wait for an idea, feeling, or thought to pop into your head. As soon as it comes, don't judge it, just write it down. Once you've written it down, go back and see if there is any more. You can ask questions to clarify what you are being told, or to expand on the information you are receiving. If at any time the message seems critical or negative, understand that your ego is getting in the way, so say to Archangel Michael, please take me out of ego and into the light so that I may hear your more clearly. "
In performing this exercise it is vital that you do not judge what you are receiving, as it is common for people to think they are making it up rather than receiving it from Divine Source. If it is loving, positive and empowering, then it is coming from a Higher Place. If it is negative, unloving (to you or anyone else), competitive, or disempowering, then it is coming through a filter of ego and can be discarded. Keep practicing you will quickly get to know the difference.
Exercise for Clairsentience - Clear Sensing
In this exercise the design is to get you tapped in to feeling other people's emotions. (Please note that there are added clearing exercises to be performed at the end of this exercise. )
The easiest place to do this is somewhere public. A coffee shop is a great place to start. Having protected yourself prior to going to the coffee shop, take a seat somewhere that you are less likely to be disturbed but still have full view of the comings and goings. Start by choosing a waiter/ess. Focusing on them, just open up and imagine what you think they are feeling. Are they enjoying their day, or are they feeling frazzled and tired. Do you imagine that this is their only job, do they have children, are they studying at University, do they have a marriage or relationship, are they social or private people, shy or outgoing, and so on. Just explore who they are. Make sure you are using your imagination and that you aren't pressuring yourself or second guessing what you come up with. Practice this regularly, and you will see a definite improvement in your ability to tap in to people. Make sure that each time you do this exercise, you complete the session with these cleansing practices and then ground.
Imagine lots of little cords attached to you and to the people you have worked with in this exercise. Now see a giant, powerful sword coming down and easily slicing through all cords, cutting them away from your body and dissolving into thin air.
White Light Shower
This can be done with a real shower or just as a visualisation. See a running shower but instead of water, beautiful, sparkly white light is pouring out. Step under the shower and watch as any dark or gunky energy washes off you and pours down into the drain.
Once you have completed these exercises, ground yourself using one of the exercises mentioned earlier.
These are just some of many powerful exercises that you can use to develop your natural psychic talent. Your psychic abilities are gifted to you to support your journey through this world. Life becomes so much easier when you are using all of the gifts given to you for this journey.
