Today I asked my guides what I should write about, and my own psychic journey popped up. My journey is one of a psychic in training – I’ve always had a little ability to communicate with spirit, but it’s taken 15 years to get to where I am now and I still consider myself to have an awful lot to learn. Developing my mediumship skills is going to be my focus for the next decade I expect!
But things progressed rapidly for me a while back when I listened to my guides and took in what they were telling me, and I want to share the lesson with you incase it can help you on your own journey.
Psychics fall into different categories, namely clairvoyants who see spirit, clairaudients who hear it, and clairsentients who feel it, and here’s where the confusion came in for me.
My first experience with spirit was seeing form in my late teens. I saw spirit and could pick up messages if they offered any and I figured this was what mediums did. Then, in my twenties, when I decided I wanted to meet with my guides, I started to push to *hear* them. I thought that was how they were supposed to come through and eventually they did come this way, though it took a LOT of practise. One guide in particular still shouts at me now because in the early days I asked him to speak up to ensure I heard him!
But then, after gaining the ability to hear guidance and thinking I was well on my way, progression stopped again. In my eyes I could see a bit and hear a bit, but I didn’t have a reliable way to connect with spirit whenever I needed to which was frustrating – I wanted guides to be available when I gave readings! I wanted to hear frequent voices like others could! How could I be psychic if I didn’t have voices inside my head?!!
Despite this lack of talent however, (this was how I perceived myself), I still seemed able to tune into guidance so I kept going with a sense of urgency to master being ‘all knowing’. And eventually the answers came through.
Here’s where my guides helped me and where the wake up you might need comes in.
Sometimes, because we have a preconceived idea of how spirit communicates, we cut ourselves off from the other ways they come through which slows our progression down. When this lesson jolted me awake I realised, in the space of a second, that even though my sight and hearing wasn’t reliable, I had *always* had an inner knowing. Instinctively I knew things. Instinctively I felt emotions, pains and fears. I knew what people wanted to say even when they were putting all their energy into convincing me otherwise. And when spirits came visiting, I just ‘knew’ what they wanted to share. If I asked my spirit guides for help for myself, I always received it too, and enjoyed the benefits of feeling supported.
But despite all this I hadn’t grasped that this was spirit’s primary way of communicating with me, and that other people couldn’t work like this with as much ease. Sure, lots of people get hunches or sense vibes from others, and that’s the start of skills developing, but I could take those vibes and go right in. I didn’t need to ask strangers what was wrong – I just knew and if I didn’t know, my guides could show me how to help. I just ‘knew’ how future events would pan out too. Future insights were available to me, just not in the form I thought they should be in. When somebody was in front of me, I could tell their primary focus and how things would play out if they took the action I knew they would or wouldn’t take, but 90% of this knowing was just feeling. I could sense the struggle, the cheating boyfriend, the denial, the health issue, the likelihood of travel coming up or a career change – I just didn’t have more than a sentence in my ear or brief image in my minds eye to confirm it! And it’s taken a while for me not to expect one!
These days I take whatever comes through in whatever form. I think often the person I’m working with influences how I receive more than the guides do. I’ve certainly noticed that I feel emotions rev up within me the more vocal a person is and I hear more around quieter souls!
Perhaps as I progress on this journey I will hear more without being shouted at, and see more too. I’d love to see more of spirit and am working on developing this. In the meantime though, I’m ok channelling messages the way I do now and enjoying the journey I’m on.
And that’s the point I want to make. If you want to channel, you must be ready to receive and you must develop a way of life that allows you to pick up on *what* you’re being shown. Some psychics and mediums sit in caravans with crystal balls. That doesn’t mean you can’t work a different way. Spirit will work with whatever individual talents and interests you have within a time frame that suits your development so don’t cut yourself off from hearing because you’d rather see a misty image, or ignore what you’re feeling because you can’t hear too. Work with what you have! The other senses will develop naturally. Perhaps you aren’t meant to see ghosts in your bedroom – perhaps your work is to feel what your friend can’t say out loud and help the world that way instead.
How are you progressing on your psychic journey? Could you be cutting yourself off as I was?
If you’re struggling to connect, perhaps this might be why.
Love as always 🙂
