10 Steps to Improve Your Own Psychic Abilities


Everyone intuitively understands that psychic abilities can be nurtured and developed by all of us. Bay Area psychics, and probably psychics working anywhere else, are frequently contacted for advice on coaching, training and further developing all kinds of people interested in improving psychic abilities and skills. This is part of the art and the tradition of participating in all matters – be they seemingly esoteric – or simply a part of being human. Engagement with the public and with the communities we serve is all part of being a psychic.

With all that said, let's jump right in and get you on your way to training, enhancing and developing the psychic abilities you were born with.
  1. Take care of yourself and watch your diet. Everything takes energy and developing your psychic abilities might take more! Eat lots of fruits rich in potassium. Diet, exercise, and physical conditioning are the first steps towards enhancing your mental conditioning. Being comfortable and happy in your body is the first step toward expanding your ethereal body.
  2. Learn to breathe – and if it takes extensive meditation – do it. No one knows a well-conditioned diaphragm like a psychic – so get to know yours. Essential to most psychic work is total mastery of the relaxation of your mind and body. Meditation and breathing – for whatever purpose are a good way to go about it, and you may be surprised at the difficulty some people face. Equally surprising is how much immediate benefit you get from undergoing regular and rigorous practice.
  3. Progress from Meditation to Chakras– Even if you start with a simpler program aimed at mindfulness or a yoga-based breathing studies, moving from breathing to a deeper understanding of the psychic makeup of the body is important. The study of how the Chakras focus and direct energy within and around your body will give you a stronger relationship with yourself, more control, and better ways to receive and process perceptions. It's probably not something you can learn from a book, but that might not be bad preparation for attending some group classes and lessons.
  4. Take care of the people around you – Your family, partner, or close friends can create conflicts and issues of trust or betrayal that really must not be ignored. Be sure that you are at peace with yourself, and those around you are at peace with themselves and with you plus what you are doing. Relaxing and learning the increased control necessary is much easier without these close and often important distractions.
  5. Conquer negative thoughts and trust yourself – This is harder than it sounds, but it's a big part of why being at peace with your family and friends is so important. Don't feed doubts but foster confidence. You'll be learning to take ever more chances with perceptions, and doing that is like falling backwards in the hopes someone will catch you – over and over. Get used to it, and trust yourself not to fall. You'll also be focusing on key perceptions and heightened awareness. Nothing hinders awareness like negativity.
  6. Practice! – This is another pretty tough one. Practice what? Well, there are classes available sometimes, and some psychics will recommend reading all the books you can. Many of them include step by step instructions for seeing Auras, psychometry, or tarot card readings.

    None of these practices will necessarily hurt your progress but most importantly, try not to get too caught up in the paraphernalia. Realizing yourself as a medium is a far more important step – with or without the tools of the trade. There are some great tips for practicing the development of your psychic abilities at
  7. Start a Journal of Everything – There's still no better way to remember – and even enhance – any experience than to write it down. You may find your dreams are more vivid or strange. Rest assured that they will inform your every move. But they need to be carefully recorded or your subconscious will simply not be brought on board.

    You'll find very quickly that there is not much point in distinguishing between waking and dreaming. The two realms of experience will each inform the either, but in both cases the practice of writing something down can complete it, or draw it on to the next stage or simply pull it out of the realm of "mere" mental experience.
  8. Work with your imagination. Starting with a journal allows you to be more specific, articulate and detailed in your descriptions, either of dreams or waking events. You'll see that you have to choose some words more and more carefully. Practice by imagining places you're planning to visit before you go, in detail and ahead of time. You want to practice at increasingly longer intervals before actually traveling and always in increasing detail.

    To get really good at this you will need to practice all of the above, working from moving from one room to the next a few minutes before going to check on up to practicing what a place tomorrow will look like before you go to sleep. The point is not as much to actually develop remote vision as to it is strengthen and enhance your imagination and your ability to trust it.
  9. Schedule more – Now that you're writing everything down, make sure you're keeping a good schedule, somewhat rigid to begin with. You don't have to learn or practice everything all at once. On the contrary, try to integrate new skills into a regularly kept schedule that allows you to practice a reasonable amount each day.
  10. Slow down – Now remember, what we said in steps one and two. Take care of yourself, eat right, and get some exercise. Using mental energy can sometimes feel like you're exhausting yourself. Physical energy helps your body to replenish, so use your energy even if it does make you physically tired. You'll see that your dreams are even more vivid and informative when you're getting a good sleep after all of that hard work. Be ready to write them down, as well.
