• Intuition is often one’s first introduction to psychic seeing and understanding. The problem is, many people reject their own instincts. In doing so, they exhibit diminished appreciation for and acceptance of their Higher Consciousness. The result is fewer and fewer insights, intuitive promptings and instinctual nudges. However, if a person accepts their intuition, shows gratitude for it, and respects the wisdom it so often dispenses, then the ability grows and flourishes.
    Developing a strong psychic ability is much like raising a healthy child: it requires dedication, love, acceptance, and plenty of positive reinforcement. It must also be done without the need to direct their (its) course. That, some may say, is the most difficult. If one is meant to be of service, the way will be shown.

    You can try this to identify and hone your abilities: mix up a regular deck of playing cards, hold them in your hand face down, relax and concentrate. With your non-dominant hand, using any finger/s other than the forefinger or thumb, touch the back of the top card in the pile. You’ll “hear” or sense red or black. Consciously choose which color the card is before turning it over, and when you do, make 3 piles – one pile of cards which you guessed correctly, one of cards which were incorrect, one where you first thought of the correct card but changed your answer. The 3rd pile will give you the most insight into where your intuition really lies, try to remember when you changed your mind, and how you felt then. Go through the deck at least once, or several times.

    Practicing this for 5 or 10 minutes every day will help you hone your natural instincts. I’d suggest charting your progress: date, time spent, # right, # wrong, # changed your mind. Best of luck.

    I think you want to help based on life experiences. Sometimes when we are caught in a relationship, it’s hard to free ourselves. It takes support from family and friends. But like w/me talking about it is best. It’s easier for us on the outside, it can be real torment when on the inside. Breaking away from the same patterns helps us. Being quite honest is the best I believe. Learning abusive patterns, learning victim’s patterns helps.

    A synonym for psychic–intuitive. We all have intuition. We must learn to make good choices. And every now and then, by the grace of God, I receive a signal grace that lets me know everything will be alright. Everything will be alright.
