The Not Very Psychic Ego

Once we begin to experience spontaneous psychic insights and desire to further develop our natural intuition, we are at a tipping point. Our spirit and soul is emerging and integrating into our conscious self. Our spirit is naturally psychic. It is not contained or limited by time or space and physical death. It is eternal and connected to the vast source of all love and wisdom. As our spirit bubbles up into our conscious awareness, it further strengthens our psychic awareness.

The work of psychic development is to activate our innate psychic awareness and integrate it into our conscious self and daily life. All too often we attempt to control psychic energy and fit it into what our ego feels and thinks it should be. However this rarely proves to be a successful strategy. It can be difficult to give up the reigns of control to the unseen inner force of psychic activity as the ego continually wants to jump in and take over the process. However, the ego or personality self is not intuitive or psychic and this aspect of our being is forever confined to the limitations of the five physical senses.

When we allow the ego to dictate and tell us what it means to be psychic, what to expect and how to develop psychic abilities, we lose our way. When confronted with psychic energy, it re- acts with apprehension, fear and doubt. The ego has a preconceived idea of what it means to be psychic and what the intuitive information and guidance that we receive should look and feel like. Yet, these assumptions and expectations are never correct and helpful. Too often people dis- count genuine psychic experiences and sabotage their progress because of unrealistic expectations.

Invite the ego to take a back seat. Allow your spirit, the eternal part of you that is trustworthy and always works in your best interest and highest good, to come forward. Intuitively listen to your spirit and observe, become aware and learn the unique way that psychic energy manifests in your life. Unlike the ego that operates through judgment and expectations, your spirit is gentle, guiding, and meets you right where you are. It works through your individual strengths and weaknesses and helps you to develop your unique psychic gifts.

Dear, Sensitive, Intuitive Souls

apps.33698.13670664751808209.3005b459-0f15-4b82-9d47-51950fa31458 My sincere admiration to all the sensitive, intuitive, heart opened souls who have moved through this year intact. The world has never been particularly kind and understanding to our lot. This year has been no exception. We are the emotional/spiritual barometer that picks up the coming energy highs and lows. We know the storms before they hit and feel the rising tensions on an inner acute level before others read the news. Our soul tears open our shirt exposing our bare heart to the cross winds of human failings and misery.

Yet, it is no accident that we are here. We anchor the rays of light from the heavens and it is through sensitive, kind, intuitive souls that the seeds of divine love are cast. Just through being love flows.

Remember you are special and need a lot of love and care. Zip the shirt closed for a bit and relish the unique gift that you are. Let the stars shine light deep within and vanish the darkness. Allow the gentle breeze to blow the heaviness and sorrow from your mind.

From endings come beginnings. They exist within one another and continually spiral us from hope to actualization to dismay and joy. This is life on this ever spinning earth. As this year comes to a close contemplate your 2018 spiritual self. What challenges and lessons did the year bring? When did joy run like a careless unencumbered child, free and wild. What brought you sadness and may still need to be cared for and tended to.

All of life sits in the throne of your soul. Its here where you are replenished and made whole. Before you step into the new year, take a moment to bless the past years’s challenges and gifts. It is holy ground you’ve been walking.

Grateful For Divine Diversity

autumn-wind-song-4-winds-youtube              As I watch the wind scatter the leaves outside my window, I’m reminded of how much I love this time of year. The brisk cool mornings, the dusky slant of the sun in the late afternoon and the cascade of leaves in the sunny breeze that looks like gold falling from the sky.

When I was young, I never quite understood the meaning of Thanksgiving. Sure, it was about food, family, and pilgrim school plays and turkey, but I always felt that I was missing something or that I should be feeling something that I wasn’t. It was not until I got older that my appreciation of Thanksgiving transitioned from food to gratitude and I could grasp its significance. Now in this, my favorite time of the year, I celebrate the wondrous power and presence of the invisible Spirit that churns out all that I need, even when I’m not looking for it.

This happened to me yesterday as I was working on my latest book. When I don’t know what to write, which tends to be most of the time. I ask spirit to write through me. Of course, this is where the best comes from.

As I was writing, this sentence popped out on the page surprising me: 

We are all living in the same energy of love, We’re just separated by how we experience it.

As I re-read the sentence, a panorama spread out in front of me and I saw the vast diversity that populates the planet. From the change of seasons, the varied climates and animal life and natural wonders, the earth is an ever-changing kaleidoscope. We humans are no exception. The color of our skin varies, we speak different languages, we call the Divine by different names and we have different versions of right and wrong. We are each living a somewhat different reality and yet, we are all connected by the cord of love.

Like a masterful symphony, we only come into harmony when we are free to be ourselves and celebrate our differences. This year among many other things, I’m grateful for the unlimited variety through which divine beauty and love is expressed.

If you want to know and feel the Divine Presence and be close to the creative force of the all that is, see the hope, wisdom, inspiration and joy in our differences. Instead of allowing fear to take hold of your heart, knock the fences down and allow the odd, repelling and strange to creep onto your threshold. Take a good look until you find, sense and feel the love that flows through this stranger. It might be a person of a different race, culture or belief system. Diversity also shows up in new ideas, perspectives or ways to live our life and perceive ourselves.

Creation runs in every direction and this is one of the ways that the unfathomable power of the Divine is expressed. The thread that binds everything together is love and we can’t know peace until we discover it in what we shy away from, whoever and whatever that might be.

There is Only One Power

f1ebcddf4922739fd9ec2dea754d7baeIt’s easy to get thrown out of balance by the events of the world. Particularly the recent political chaos that has left many of us wondering where the presence of justice, kindness and compassion reside. The dark secret of sexual abuse became public this week. We purged ourselves and began a massive collective detox from the centuries old pattern and all too common practice of hiding this dark truth. We are only as sick as our secrets and we are healing at our core. Of course, there was denial and resistance. Darkness hides from the light.

The world can seem to be split in two, the physical and the spiritual, and this tends to create division within ourselves as well. Although it may not be readily apparent and obvious, there is only one power in the universe and the beyond. Whatever you call it, this one power creates and nurtures all of life and expresses itself through love and compassion.  This is the power that can heals us individually and collectively and bridges the gap between the seen and known and the unseen and elusive. It speaks to us from a quiet inner place and reminds us of its grace and goodness.

Don’t give your power over to external events. It’s tempting to do this and spiral down into a dark place, overwhelmed and without hope.

This is a powerful moment of individual and collective transformation. When we remain positive, love ourselves and others, even those that think differently than we do, the one power of the universe flows through us.  Evil eventually destroys itself. It is a dark ghost that feeds on our fears and negativity. Without this it starves and turns in on itself and devours its own.

What we are here to learn, in this time and place and be a witness to, is the crumbing of the old and the emergence of the power of love. The creative, indestructible and life giving power of love. Listen to it, it lives within you.

Our Next Evolutionary Step

        Given the tumultuous world that greets us each day, psychic awareness may seem to be on the back burner of importance. Somewhere up there with the search for the Loch Ness monster or understanding magic tricks. An interesting pastime maybe, but not the stuff that we need to navigate through the highlighted and underlined political, economic and environmental concerns that steer our very existence. Even in the best of times, psychic awareness doesn’t grab our attention as something that is essential to pay attention to or to develop.

I get it. What we seem to most need are real solutions and new ideas and ways to better navigate our way through our everyday challenges. However, let’s be real. Logic and linear finite thinking isn’t cutting it. It’s not that we don’t have great ideas. We have plenty of them and technology and science and all kinds of useful three dimensional awareness. But, we are not making use of our total being and the power and abilities that each one of us embodies.

The means to move forward in personal and collective well-being and harmony will not be found in the known, but in our next evolutionary step. All of life is waiting for us to lift our heads out of the fog and confusion and into enlightened clarity. There is an inner rumbling and a yearning calling out for us to embrace our true authentic power. We are more than the sack of bones, cravings and hopes that we slosh around in. Until we listen and take the next step, we are doomed to be controlled by the finite chaotic world.

There is an energy, a soul, a spirit within you that transcends the limitations that you confront individually and that we confront collectively. To tap into it we have to understand its language. It doesn’t speak just to just our brain, but to our heart, our gut and our soul. This is the language of intuition.

The origin of the word psychic comes from the Greek word, psȳchikós, which means of the soul.

When we are aware of and listen to our intuition, our inner psychic, we are aided by limitless wisdom, awareness and love. We are no longer confined by material laws and we are guided into infinite possibilities and new creation.

The Protective Power of Love

heart-rose-5x7-240x300Day to day life for those with a primary and innate mode of intuiting through their emotions, may at times feel like an emotional roller coster. If you have a high degree of emotional intuition, you may not be aware of the degree to which you intuit another’s emotional energy. Because you were born with this innate sensitivity, you may not always be able to distinguish your own feelings from the feelings that you have absorbed from others.

When young, many emotional intuitives become the emotional barometer for the family and unconsciously try to balance and harmonize the emotional energy within the home. They may be viewed as over sensitive and moody and may express the bottled up and repressed emotions of other family members.

Once you become aware of the emotional energy that you are absorbing from others and the environment, you can release and let go of those emotions that are creating stress or are toxic to your mind, body and spirit. As you do this, it becomes easier to tune into the intuitive heart and further develop and use the psychic abilities of emotional intuition in beneficial ways. 

The heart is the psychic center for emotional intuition and your connection to divine and unconditional love. Love in its highest form is positive vital life force energy. This kind of love elevates our consciousness and shields us from lower toxic energies. When your intuition is aligned with the pure vibrations of love, you are protected from the harsh effects of negative and potentially damaging emotional energy. Guided by the wisdom of your heart, you cease absorbing others energy and instead become a force of positivity and healing. Psychic love is healing and compassionate awareness. It is a calming balm that allows us to be a source of and healing to others.

If you have a high degree of emotional intuition it is essential that you open and connect to the higher vibrations of love. We all need love. If you primarily intuit through emotional energy, the need is even greater. The higher vibrations of unconditional and divine love restores and creates balance and harmony. It strengthens and protects you from the potential debilitating effects of toxic and caustic emotional energy. It helps to soothe the effects of emotional sensitivity and enables you intuit other’s emotions without absorbing them. Love opens the door and empowers you to embrace your intuitive gifts and use them in life enhancing ways.

Obstacles to Psychic Awareness: #1 Doubt

Doubt is a common obstacle that many must confront when developing psychic abilities. We may at times doubt that psychic awareness is natural, real and possible, doubt our capacity  to develop it and doubt the intuitive messages that we receive. Doubt is a product of the ego and it will regularly surface when developing psychic abilities. How could it not? The ego does not want the surly upstart of psychic awareness to take over the reign of your day to day consciousness.

Recognize doubt in its many disguises. It can surface as skepticism and a need to have psychic phenomena meet an unreasonable standard of proof. It is always healthy and a good idea to question psychic information and be mindful of errors in insights and interpretation. However, there is no perfect science in psychic phenomena. It is an evolving art and while it is important to notice any mistakes that you may make when developing psychic abilities, learn from them and keep moving forward. Too often, the psychic arts are held to a higher standard than other skills and talents. For instance, we do not dismiss the medical profession as invalid when an illness has been misdiagnosed and we are not expelled or quit school when we do poorly on an exam. It is all part of the process of growth and increased awareness.

Doubt often surfaces in my psychic development classes and I encourage my students to confront and work through it. Everyone experiences some degree of doubt. But don’t let it control and limit your psychic growth. Recognize the difference between doubt and questioning. Questioning is a positive tool that can help you to refine psychic abilities and become aware of its subtle nuances.

For instance: It may, at times, be necessary to question the source of your intuitive impressions. It can helpful to ask yourself if you are receiving psychic energy information or if you are generating insights and impressions based on your own thoughts, beliefs and desires. You may need to question your interpretation of what you are psychically receiving and it may be helpful to ask yourself what you may need to do differently to better improve your abilities. Questions can play a crucial role in the process of noticing, discerning and understanding psychic impressions. This is not the case with doubt. Instead of encouraging your development, doubt stops you in your tracks. It says that you have no psychic aptitude and natural abilities or that psychic phenomena is fake and phony.

Confront doubt and move through it with determination and persistence. As you do this you begin to receive the gift of soulful knowing. As you notice and feel the truth deep of psychic insight, you experience a recognizable and sure sense of knowing. This kind of awareness comes from the soul. Doubt may overwhelm you with confusion and produce anxiety. Yet, your soul always knows when it meets the truth.

Become familiar with what it feels like to receive psychic energy and form a relationship with this connection. When you experience a clear gut-affirming psychic awareness hold onto it and feel it. You may not always understand and be able to adequately put what you receive in words and interpret it correctly. This will come in time. It is enough at the beginning to recognize the unique feeling that accompanies a true connection to psychic energy information. 

Once you have received energy information and insights, you may begin to doubt your ability to interpret and understand what you have received. In this phase, questioning can also play an important role. If you are not sure if your interpretations are correct, intuitively check for  accuracy. Ask yourself if it feels right? What does your gut or heart and heart tell you? These are messages from you soul that will let you know if your interpretations are correct. 

There will be other times when doubt surfaces. When it does, remind yourself that that your insecurities are coming from your ego. Shift your awareness deeper within, feel and listen for the voice of your soul. Trust your inner sense of soul-awareness when it surfaces and you will be able to rely on it whenever you use your psychic ability.
