Understanding Different Types Of Psychic Abilities

In the swirl of misconceptions, misunderstandings, and general confusion surrounding the fields of parapsychology and psychic activity, most people have no idea how to make distinctions between different types of psychic abilities.

Wait a minute, you say, I didn’t even know there were different types!  You’re in the same boat as most everyone else who has a basic understanding of psychic reading and activity. Little does the general public know, it’s not all tarot cards and psychic phone reading, there are sharply defined distinctions between everything from the obvious (tarot reading and telepathy) to the surprising (clairaudience, clairsentience, and clairvoyance).

First, let’s discuss what defines psychic ability in the first place.

Extra-sensory perception (ESP), prophecies of the future, and a sixth sense could all be defined under the blanket term psychic ability. But where does psychic ability come from? Actually, no one really knows, not even psychic readers. People who claim to have psychic abilities describe a sense of just having it without having any conception of how it got there. Most say that it is part of their regular consciousness, and that they simply know or feel things before, during, or after they happen despite being unable to explain how. Though parapsychology has been heavily criticized, scrutinized, and stigmatized, the truth is that as much evidence points towards its veracity as against it.

Different Types of Psychic Abilities

So what are some of the different types of psychic abilities? To begin with, there is the art of channeling, which is defined as the ability to receive and transmit information from another external consciousness while in a decidedly altered state of mind. Though each incident varies in intensity and resulting activity, many share the same basic traits: a semi-trance-like state and the appearance of an outer entity expressing itself through the channeler. Many people have been able to obtain a psychic reading of another entity and consciously channel that entity but professional parapsychologists don’t recommend trying it until you’ve been well-trained and prepared.

Three more (related) types of psychic ability are clairaudience, clairsentience, and clairvoyance. Clairaudience is generally defined as the ability to hear or sense sounds that cannot be perceived by a non-psychic person. Clairsentience is another type of extrasensory perception in that clairsentient people can sense past, present, or future events through sensing them, though non-clairsentient people cannot perceive them. Clairvoyance is a synonym for extrasensory perception of any knowledge or consciousness of an event outside of seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, or smelling it.

Divination is another often-misunderstood type of psychic ability. Divination is the act of making prophecies or predictions through the practice of occult arts. Contrary to popular belief, this is different from intuition which is defined as the ability to perceive or act based on just knowing that it’s the right thing to do. Tarot Cards and tarot reading is a form of divination. Although the mainstream ideas of divination and intuition have been tweaked to seem like anyone can tap into this psychic energy field, the truth is that only a few people take the time to hone and develop their extrasensory perception skills.

What’s the difference between psychometry and psychokinesis? Well, psychometry is defined as the ability to glean information about an object by obtaining physical contact with the object. Good examples of this are seen in countless movies. Envision it: The hero touches a book and, upon contact, is filled with images of its previous user and the fate that befell him or her. Psychokinesis is the ability to move objects through willing it or thinking it.

The Elements Useful in Developing Psychic Abilities

All people are born with the capacity for psychic powers but only a few become psychic. There are two types of psychics: the natural born and those who are through practice are able to grow the powers within them. The natural born psychics are said to be the gifted as they have had a great amount of psychic powers since birth. On the other hand, those who are born with lesser amounts of psychic powers require heavy practice and understanding in order to grow. In other cases, psychics’ abilities can be suddenly awakened by strong emotions or near-death experiences, which results in having great amounts of mental powers in an instant.

Elements of Psychic Skill Development

Here are some of the elements that can help a person to develop their psychic skills or abilities:

Understanding: Spiritual development requires time, patience and understanding. In order to develop your psychic ability, you must first understand its importance and purpose, having psychic powers also entails responsibilities; becoming a psychic means that you allow your mind and body to grow spiritually, set your goal into helping others, giving as precise information as possible and know that having a psychic ability is never to be abused.

Patience: Whether you’re a natural born with psychic powers or not, you will only be able to develop your psychic ability with time, so don’t rush, the spirits will guide you through your journey. It is best to find a psychic group in your community or online to guide you.

Focus: Focusing first on one ability is good, choose which ability you would like to develop. It is important that you believe in yourself while doing a reading. Psychics have different types of reading and will choose the most appropriate based on the client.

Divination Tools

Choose your tool: Always have the proper tool(s) before conducting a reading.

  • Tarot Cards are a divination tool that is used to gain insight and resolve issues regarding heath, relationships, career, and spirituality.
  • Numerology, from the word itself, uses numbers that correspond to each letter of the alphabet. With a mathematical formula, psychics use numerology to give past or future information on a person’s life path.
  • Astrology uses the celestial bodies such as the moon, sun, and planets to represent events that occur in a person’s life.
  • A Crystal Ball can be used to aid in clairvoyance, Clairvoyance is a Greek word that means ‘clear seeing’ and is a psychic ability that goes beyond the five senses to receive or download information using only the mind.
  • Some other ways a psychic may perform a reading is through palm reading, cold reading, dream interpretation, among other methods

Practice: Becoming a skillful psychic requires a lot of practice, nobody becomes a professional in any field in just a few days! When practicing your psychic ability keep in mind that what you’re doing is good for someone, discard your doubts, no matter what your mind sees during a psychic reading take full trust in your ability.

Lastly, if you’ve just begun to learn how to develop your psychic powers, try some psychic ability tests first to know the scope and limit of your psychic powers. Psychic tests are available online and in a psychics’ community.

Harnessing Psychic Abilities for Day to Day Living

Everyone is psychic. What a person can or cannot do is not an indication of your true abilities. However, intuition is interesting. The more you listen to it the more feedback it will give you. Therefore, you really need to practice trusting your intuition, paying attention to the way your unconscious mind tells you information. For some it is a simple knowing in the quiet moments of meditation. For others it may be a gut feeling or a body sensation. The unconscious mind can use any of your senses to communicate; these include the five following senses:

  • Vision that involves isolated images or symbols you see or it can be more detailed images of clairvoyance or remote viewing.
  •  Hearing, also known as clairaudience, involves hearing words or sounds in one ear and not the other. At first, this can be scary for those who are not familiar with it.
  • Touch is probably also considered clairsentience as it is a feeling intuition as physical body sensations.
  • Smell can also give psychic information whether simple or complex.
  • Taste, although far less common than the other methods, has been known for some psychics to get a taste in their mouths when interpreting psychic information.

There are many ways you can practice using your intuition. Some are listed below:

  • Traffic: If you live in a city with frequent traffic reports try to guess which roads are bad and why. This works even better if you have two routes to get home, each with an equal chance of having delays. You can guess which roads to use to get home faster, and then check Google Maps. (It is not helpful if one road is always bad, because then logic takes over.)
  • Shopping: Without checking the internet try to guess what you are going to pay for something and where the best place to buy it is. Afterwards check out the facts.
  • Parking: Try to let your intuition guide you to the best parking space. This is particularly useful during the holiday season.
  • Telephone: See if you know it on the telephone before you look at the caller ID.
  • Sports: Without knowing anything about the game or the teams try to guess who will win and what the scores will be. Then check out the results.

The trick is to find something you care about, or something you cannot know for sure based on past knowledge and experience and you can get feedback on. Then pay attention to the difference in feelings between that which proved to be right and that which proved to be wrong. Take notice if you have ignored your intuition and see if you later regret not acting upon it, be aware of how that information came to you so that next time it happens, you do not ignore it.

Learn to listen to feedback from your body on the psychic hits you get. One of the best psychic development techniques is learning to tell when you are getting information that is right or wrong.

Intuition
Intuition

Work on issues you hear all the time that you rarely act upon. You have to work on your psychological baggage; I cannot emphasize this enough! All information is accessed and processed through the unconscious mind. If you have issues and you do not want to look at them you will find that the psychic information you receive will be distorted. Many people have found they are blocked by the spirit realm because they are unwilling to tackle their own issues.

The more you trust your intuition, the more information you will receive. This ‘knowing’ will become more and more definite and you will want to pass this information on. If you believe you have information for someone, be ethical. There are stories of many psychics who have been said to lose their powers because they abuse their gift. It is impossible to say how true this is, however, if you do not lose your abilities, you certainly run the risk of other difficulties. Always get a person’s permission before you give out information as without their permission you could place yourself in big trouble and in extreme cases criminal prosecution. Be ethical, be considerate. Always ask for permission before you give out information to someone. Never promise what you can not deliver, whether it is a sure-fire investment or the spirit of someone’s long lost grandfather. Honesty is the best policy in this line of work. Remember, everyone has days off and it is no different for psychics, you need to break away for a day to recharge your energy levels.

Key points to remember:

If you find yourself wondering if you are crazy, it probably means you are sane. People having an initial psychic opening often start their conversations with lines like you are going to think I am crazy but or you are never going to believe me but. The mere fact that you doubt your own sanity is a reassuring sign that you are still in touch with reality, you are simply trying to figure it out.

Stay Grounded throughout your psychic development

The issue is not whether you are hearing voices, but what those voices are saying. There is a rule, if the voices are helping you then it does not matter, whether those voices are a part of your unconscious mind or spirits, it is alright to have them around. However, if the comments are destructive, negative or hurting you, then it is time to lose the source they are coming from.

The hard thing you need to learn is what not to say. You can receive a lot of information that is better left unsaid. This is probably the most difficult thing to learn, because it requires good judgment which sometimes only comes with time and practice. Some psychics claim they say everything that comes to them. In these cases I suspect their guides are trying to filter the information before it gets to their mouths. However, for most of you it is wise to consider what might be helpful (if you can word it right) and what would only be harmful, whether true or false.

It is important to live in the present. You may be vividly aware of past lives and you may be able to slide mentally into the future. However, you are living in the present and that is where you need to focus. Most people forget their past lives for a reason; they have a past and that is where they belong. The future will take care of itself if you remember to focus on the present without being pulled off balance by the past.

When you first start receiving information or seeing spirit it is very hard to switch it off, however, this is something you must do. It is common when you first start to open up as a psychic, that you will see colors or images (especially faces) at night. This is partly because of the normal shift in consciousness that occurs as you fall to sleep or are waking as it increases the ability to sense things. To some extent, this is normal.

As you begin to trust your intuition and the information you receive you will find it hard to switch off. Turning off your psychic gift is something you have to do or you will suffer from information overload.

Imagine your sensitivity to psychic information as a number on a control screen in your mind. Then visualize that number going down, decreasing until you are no longer aware of psychic information. In the morning you can always reverse the process and return the number back to where it was before.
