Psychic – such a hippity dippity word
Taboo, really. “Psychics are crazy” and “Psychics are scammers” are among the negative things said about people that identify with that term. But the truth is, we’re actually all psychic.
Yes, doll, even you, THE NON-BELIEVER. Have you ever experience déjà vu? Or perhaps, thinking about someone and the phone rings, and it’s them? Let me guess, you think that’s a coincidence? The laws of the universe do not hold space for coincidences, therefore they are not real. Coincidences exist to cover up something we can’t explain logically.
I’ve often said, logic is not my strong suit. I think abstractly and from a perspective based on things that can’t be physically proven. These beliefs have opened me up to my psychic self, and I welcome you to do the same.
Your intuition is an awesome gateway to your psychic self. Intuition lives in our third eye, it is our sixth sense. There is no evidence that this is true, yet, so many people have claimed intuition is their greatest attribute (myself included!!). And still, it has never been seen in a physical form.
As I continue to get more in touch with my psychic self, I figured I’d get the basics down and share them with you. Our psychic abilities are broken down by our “claires”. They are many, but here are some popular ones:
Clairvoyance (clear seeing): This is a special gift, and in my opinion, the most frightful (at first of course). I remember when I was first going through my forceful spiritual awakening, my being was so filled with fear, that activating my clairvoyance was a complete nightmare. So everything I would “see” would be negative and frightening. When I found myself switching my being from fear to love, I could see evidence of more positive beings, angels. I actually spend every moment knowing there are angels around me. In fact, as I write this blog post, they are here. It’s how I am able to live alone. I’m actually not alone. And as long as I continue to choose love over fear, I am always safe. Clairvoyance is also linked to those who can actually SEE auras and lights around people, and also see “shadow people.” These “shadow people” are new to me, and as I work to develop my psychic abilities more, I will know more.
Clairaudience (clear hearing): The ability of heightened hearing. I don’t experience this one, but I know a lot of people that do. They hear voices speak to them. I, myself, can hear my intuition speak to me, but it doesn’t use actual words, just feelings.
Clairsentience (clear feeling): This one is my strongest ability. I can feel things others can’t, as well as feel things more deeply (but that’s directly related to being a HSP/Empath). I remember on a random Saturday afternoon, living alone, I decided to watch Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. I sat down, turned on the television set. I felt so anxious. I decided to nap instead. I turned my back towards the television. I closed my eyes, and immediately FELT something staring at me. I knew I wasn’t alone in my mother’s condo, even if I couldn’t see it or have any proof.
Claircognizance (clear knowing): This is the special gift of being able to know things that you could have no real inclination of knowing. This one is also a strong one for me. I have the ability to sometimes (and it’s random, I’m working on how to be more consistent) KNOW things without any inclination that I should know. I once met a coworker for the first time, and my intuition told me to ask him if he plays guitar. I asked, and he did.
After reading this, I’m sure some of these feel familiar or hit home for you. These really are beautiful gifts, and if you’re anything like me, you’d be scared out of your mind when you first discover you have these powers. My advice, as always, is to keep going, and choose love over fear. Always remember fear may be real, but it’s simply not true.
