Have you ever made a firm determination that you were going to learn how to develop your psychic abilities? And, did you find that after reading a few books on psychic development that you were no closer to achieving your goals? Just about everybody who cares about self-improvement will eventually make the journey to develop their psychic powers.
The development of your psychic abilities can radically enhance your whole life. It has the ability to give you a huge advantage in life. Knowing where to go, how to go, the true intentions of those around you as well as psychic influence are all huge assets to have. However the issue still remains with most people and that is really learning and grasping what they have read in the many courses and books they have studied.
It can take most people many years to develop their psychic and intuitive awareness when it really does not have to. With dedicated work anybody can increase their psychic abilities however the length of time it may take you can be sped up a lot faster.
Before I tell you how to develop your psychic power and how to do it fast let’s tackle some of the issues you may be having which hinder your progress.
Only Special People are Psychic – Surprisingly a lot of people including those who do take the journey to learn how to develop their psychic abilities believe that other people have a special ability and they don’t. As simple as that belief is it creates a mental block which ultimately will limit your success. Naturally if you think that psychic abilities belong to special person you will always find yourself working hard to achieve what is already a natural part of everyone.
You Can’t Visualize – Visualization is a very essential key to psychic development. It facilities mental visions and helps with many of the psychic techniques such as mental telepathy, accessing answers on past and future events and so forth. While visualization is not the only tool to psychic development being able to visualize is a huge advantage.
Another sad issue a lot of people face is actually being afraid of what they see when they close their eyes. That truth is astonishing! After all how can anyone be afraid of their own self? However this fear is more common than not; and it’s common even for people who attend psychic development courses.
Lacking Mental Concentration – Mental concentration is an absolute must in psychic development. Now we are not speaking of holding the mind clearly on a candle for two hours without blinking. Mental concentration is key in such practices as mental telepathy where you are able to transmit thoughts to the mind of others. Most people struggle with a sort of monkey mind. There is always a hopping and jumping of the mind from one issue to the next. This monkey mind prevents the development of psychic powers.
These three issues are the most common problems which inhibit the vast majority from excelling with psychic development. Get past these issues and you will excel in your development.
Here Are a Few Techniques You Want to Apply to Increase Your Psychic Development Fast
The following five techniques should be incorporated in your day to day activities in order to develop your psychic abilities fast. Get a note book and an alarm clock which you will set for five times throughout the day whether you are at work or at home. Every time the alarm goes off take a 5-10 minute break to practice one or a combination of these techniques.
Within the first week you will notice improvements, by the end of two weeks there will be a huge improvement and by the third week you will definitely have clearer mental visions, your ability to accurately know things will astound you and your dreams will improve in clarity as well as your ability to recall them all.
No Special Time Needed
You don’t have to devote special time in your day just to working on this. What you can start doing is incorporating it into your day by doing little psychic training sessions. When the phone rings try to get a sense of who is calling before you pick up the telephone.
Try to communicate a mental message to a friend before telling them what you want. Every time it works make an actual note of it, this will build your confidence. You can also assess more specifically what you did that time to get it to work.
Take Mental Quite Time
Short sessions of mental quite will build your mental concentration a lot faster than if you leave it for one long session. Again the key to rapid psychic development is to incorporate it into your day.
Improve Your Visualization
Visualization is key in developing your psychic abilities. You can improve it by starting just where you are. Grab something anything; look at it with all of its details. Tell yourself in a clear full statement what those details are. For example if you are looking at a vase with roses, say to yourself. I am looking at a clear vase with red roses.
I can see the green stems; I can also see the leaves and the water etc. Then close your eyes and repeat this detailed vision to yourself. Speaking it out in your mind will help to form the picture. Try this technique with several things. Five to ten minutes at a time is all you need to develop, then perfect this visualization technique.
Follow your dreams
One more powerful tool to develop your psychic abilities is psychic dreaming. Dreams allow you to bypass all the hard effort and long training and it also affords more accurate, information. Another thing is that we all dream and dreams have always been none as a powerful prophetic tool. Get a dream journal, which you will place by your bed side. Every morning you awake make sure to note the first things you recall.
Playing Imaginary Games
Children are great for talking to imaginary characters and living in imaginary worlds. Children whose parents foster this imaginary game play have discovered heighten intuitive ability later on in life. They are the ones some of us call special. However children whose parents stopped them from experiencing or sharing their imaginary interactions lose their intuitive ability.
Luckily you can always reintroduce this imaginary exploration later in life. Get some good music, preferably music which will allow you to get lost in mental exploration. Create a scenario in your mind, one where you get access to your higher self. Ask your higher self whatever question you would like.
Then listen to the answer. The longer you stay in this imaginary realm the stronger your intuitive mind becomes. What starts of as imaginary will blow you away later on as you discover how accurate many of the answers become. The key is to do it as often as possible.
There you have it! One more tool you will need to develop your psychic abilities is a daily journal. No matter how small the improvements are be sure to write them down. As you write them down you can learn from yourself what works, when, why and how. Writing it out also helps to reaffirm to our mind whatever improvements and achievements you make.
Do you believe in a higher aspect of yourself? If you are open to the idea that you are greater than your physical self and that there is a part of you which has a higher, wider perspective of your life then you can get an even clearer understanding of any bad dreams you may now be experiencing.
Think of your higher self as a taller, bigger part of you with a vast over view of every single thing around you. When you are sleeping it is awake, monitoring every single part of your life. In life due to stress your mind may not be very clear and you will find yourself not paying full attention to the things which matter most in your life.
Your daily routine may take up a lot of your attention to the point that you don’t see other things which could be causing you a great deal of harm.
Look at what happens to someone who seems perfectly well one day then suddenly falls down sick and dies within a week. That illness was developing all along but that person over looked the signs which could have stopped it.
In such a case this person most likely got psychic nudges from his/her higher self but may not have known how to interpret the dreams and so dismissed them.
A bad dream is always a reflection of something that is negatively affecting you. Never ignore such dreams. There is a reason why they come and there is a reason why they reoccur again and again. They are a warning sign from your higher self that something within your life needs attention and it needs it fast.
A Series of Bad Dreams:
Having The Chair Pull Out From Beneath Him
One man kept having a series of bad dreams where night after night he would see a large group of men with a symbol on their chest approaching him. These men would walk right up to him and pull the seat from under him. For him the dreams, as well as the characters within the dream were very frightening.
After doing a bit of dream work he realized the symbol within the dream belonged to a rival company to the one he was working for. What he did not yet know was that the other company was in works to buy out his company and the merger date was coming very fast.
This man was going to be one of the men they let go. He had been handling his finances in a really bad way and could not afford to lose his job. Realizing what the dream was trying to show him, he very quickly started to look for something else. Just in time too, he found another job days before this company announced what was about to happen.
This man benefited from analyzing his bad dream. However in most cases most people stay frightened after a series of bad dreams yet do nothing more about it.
Mommy the Creepy Crawly Black Stuff
One woman shares a story of a series of bad dreams her young six year old son had been having. Every night for two weeks her young son would wake up screaming and crying that small creepy, crawly black stuff which resembled spiders were crawling on his leg.
The mom would always console him that everything was OK and it was just a bad dream. She did what most mothers do. They often have limited understanding of dreams or the working of the human mind. So they easily dismiss what they cannot see with their physical eyes.
Approximately three weeks to one month while at school her son developed a problem in his leg. He fell down and could not stand up. At the hospital she later discovered that this child had been experiencing some degenerative disease in his leg which had now weakened his muscle and he could not walk.
It took the mother many months to realize the correlation of the series of bad dreams and the illness that had later affected her son. This little boy’s higher self was trying to alert his mother that something was wrong. However that intuitive psychic communication between mother and child was not there.
The mother even recalls having a dream quite similar to what her son was having, where she saw his leg being eaten up by small bugs. However she dismissed it and thought that it was all just in her mind.
Running For Her Life
One woman had just moved into a new town where she did not know anybody. Within a few weeks of being there she began to have a series of bad dreams where she was being chased by a man. Night after night the dreams came stronger and clearer than ever. She would wake up screaming with terror still feeling herself running for her life.
In this particular case this was a woman who knew a bit about dream work. Going inside of her dream she began to program her dreams to give her answers on what was going on. What she experienced in a new dream was herself watching a man who lived a short distance away from where she now lived. She watched him in the dream as he followed her very early in the morning.
A bit nervous the next morning she kept turning around to see if she was being followed. To her surprise and amazement right behind her was a man following who fit the exact description within the series of bad dreams she had.
He was directing all his focus directly on her. Over the next few days she would encounter that man very early on her way to work. She knew that this situation would lead to a very bad situation based on the series of bad dreams she previously had.
What she did next was to change her work schedule so she could leave at a time in the morning where there were more people on the road. It would take almost a year later for her to get news that another woman was beaten and attacked by that very same man in the neighborhood.
Bad dreams are always an alert or shout out from the higher self that something needs your attention. Unfortunately, most people become consumed by the fear within the dream that they shut it out rather than try to see it as a warning sign.
Do you know about dreams or even the many ways in which you can use dreams to increase psychic power? Chances are you may not, few people do. In fact only a small percentage of people have taken any time to study the meaning of their dreams or what dreams can really do for their lives. The average person spends seven to eight hours sleeping. If you add that up between forty nine to fifty six hours is spend in bed a week. Imagine how much time that adds up to in a life time!
The average person spends that time in an unconscious state, having not a clue about what is going on. Yet there is so very much that a person can do with their dreamtime too radically enrich their life such as: develop psychic powers, solve problems, get guidance to issues they may be having and so much more.
Sadly only a very tiny number of people know of the power to use dreams to get answers as well as develop their psychic abilities. Yet those who have come upon the knowledge don’t know exactly how to use it. In any case before you can learn how to use your dreams you should know what can be done in dreamtime.
Here are 3 Secrets About Dreams That Can Enhance Your Life
Several various methods to contact the aunt failed; it was then that dream telepathy was introduced to the woman who gave it a try. Early the next day her aunt gave her a call expressing concern and worry about a dream she had about her sister. She was right on target; her niece had succeeded in communicating with her aunt the urgency of what was happening to her sister. By the next day the aunt was in town just in time to spend a few days with her sister before she passed on.
There is so much more about dreams that you may not be aware off. Everything you could possibly have an issue with can be solved using dreaming techniques. You will find that what seemed impossible to work out, change or enhance in your life can be altered in the dream state or at least you can get answers on the exact steps to take to get the help you need.
Now that you know a bit more about how you can use your dreams, what would you use your dreams to do?
What do dreams really mean? Is a common question everyone will ask at some point in time. Your dreams can leave you with a very nagging feeling when you can’t get an understanding of them, especially when they repeat themselves or turn into nightmares. Philosophers and scientist will tell you that dreams are a figment of one’s imagination, and that dreams aren’t real. However they believe that dreams do reveal the true nature of a person’s mind and their internal conflict with life. In any event the dream is a creation of the individual.
Mystics however have a different belief about dreams. Many mystics see dreams as a real experience. While you may still be wondering ‘what do dreams mean’, there is still the unanswered question, “Are dreams real?” Based on the level and number of experiences that a person can have in the dream state and the accuracy of information that can be acquire one can lean more to the belief that dreams are a real experience or an extension of a person’s physical reality.
In any case, no matter what you belief about the realness of dreams you have to start with the awareness that your dreams are an extension of your present self. So whatever you dream can only be interpreted by you, as the dream does come out of you. Dream interpretation can be a fun exploration yet for many people it can seem so mysterious and enigmatic. The dreamscape can seem like such a strange reality with pigs flying over the moon, you falling into a pie whole and so on. But, in all honesty the dream realm is not as disjointed as it seems. It’s quite easy to understand dreams once open up to how your inner mind works and how it creates these fantastic scenarios.
One point to note is that dream interpretation books are a waste of time unless they are written in a way to show you how to interpret your own dream. No two symbols can ever mean the same thing to everyone. Each individual will have an association to an image or symbol.
What Do Your Dreams Mean 3 Step Technique…to help you analyze any dream you may have.
It is extremely important that you gain an understanding and know what do your dreams mean to your personal life. Your dreams could be revealing a situation that may need your urgent attention. For example what do flying teeth in your dreams mean? Could it be that you will be hit by a baseball bat causing you to lose your dentures? Could it mean that you need to get some dental work done before you lose them all? Could it mean that you are losing your bite on something important in your life?
As you can see there is no standard interpretation, no one can ask, what do flying teeth in dreams mean and get one standard answer. The question is, who is the dreamer and what is going on within the dreamer’s life?
A spiritualist is a persons belief system in spirituality. The Spiritual movement that evolved through out the world is premised on the idea that the spirit does not die after death. There is the physical body and the material plane as well as other planes we do not see. A Spiritualist believes in other levels of being that we cannot see with the naked eye unless we are tuned in spiritually to do so. One who is a spiritualist also believes there can be communication between this plane and others. A lot of spiritualists are also mediums, or intermediaries who communicate between this plane and other planes with souls and other entities.
In order to do this a lot of spiritualists have psychic endowments. Some spiritualists are able to alter their state of consciousness to go into trance. In trance the soul or entity can enter their body and use it for communication or physical work such as healing. Some spiritualists do not go into trance but , hear, smell touch and feel spirits around them.
In traditional societies that believe in shamanism the idea of what we call a spiritualist is a natural process in human beings religious or cultural development in that society. In our society however, those that do not have a typical religious back round that we are familiar with tend to be looked upon as the stereotypical idea of a spiritualist. That is, that they do hocus pocus, like conjuring up spirits that float over our heads to do ones bidding. Real spiritualism doesn’t work that way.
It doesn’t matter if one is devoutly religious or not. You can still be a spiritualist. Spiritualists believe in a higher power, some form of god and that the spirit continues to live after the body dies. You can be a Christian spiritualist, a Jewish spiritualist, A Hindu Spiritualist etc. The idea of a Spiritualist supersedes ones religious orientation.
Spiritualist practices in the United States emerged from a Judeo-Christian faith of god and its practices, so you will find Christian Spiritualist churches all across the United States. Unlike other animist and shamanistic faiths, Spiritualism in the Anglo American Culture embraces contact with the dead, but not those forces of nature. In animist and shamanistic faiths there are forces of nature that have spirits and there are deities that one can contact as well.
It wasn’t until Allan Kardec started that Spiritualist movement in the Spanish Speaking Countries of Latin America that people with a catholic back round started accepting the idea of reincarnation. Kardec brought to the spiritualist table the idea that spirits are reborn because they have lessons they still have to learn.
Christian spiritualists view their concept of spiritualism to be different from those who practice occult arts or are in pagan forms of worship as in Wicca. This is because the spirits contacted by Christian spiritualists are claimed not to be contacted for various powers as in those religions except to heal. But as I said before that spiritualism is non denominational and you can be of a pagan faith and be a spiritualist also. One is a spiritualist based on the ideology of spiritualism, not their other religious affiliations.
Psychic Channeling is a phenomenon that is used by mediums. Mediums are gifted with extra sensory powers and developed intuitions that enable them to tune into other dimensions to communicate with entities outside of their body.
A medium can communicate with an entity in two ways. One is physical mediumship where everyone that is present also experiences the entities presence. The spirit may make its presence known through making sounds on the wall or rapping on the floor. The participants may see a form appear or hear a voice. The second type of mediumship involves the mind of the medium. This type of psychic channeling is called mental mediumship. Mental Mediumship may take the form of Clairvoyance where the medium alone sees the spirit, Clairaudience, where the medium hears the spirit, or Clairsentience, where the medium senses the spirits presence and thoughts.
Anther type of psychic channeling is trance. Trance is where the medium goes into an unconscious state in order for the entity to take over the mediums body. In this case the entity would talk and use the mediums body to serve its purpose. With this type of psychic channeling the medium is usually trained by a more experienced medium of trance to learn how to go into the unconscious state without injuring or harming them selves. Also when in a trance there is usually another person present who is not in a trance to help with the spiritual experience or to document it in some fashion. When in a deep trance the psychic channeling experience is not remembered by the medium upon waking up or coming out of the trance.
There is also another type of psychic channeling that readers may use called conscious channeling. This is when the medium does not go into a complete trance and is still conscious but their guide works with them. A medium may use a tool like tarot cards or crystals in this type of psychic channeling to conduct a reading.
Many traditional and indigenous cultures utilize psychic channeling as part of the belief systems. Shamans go into trance to communicate with deities for the rest of the societal practitioners. This is quite normal in non-European societies even today. The American Indians also use trance in many of their ritual practices.
It is said with psychic channeling you will only channel what you are capable of channeling. It says if you are of bad character you will channel a like spirit. You attract psychically what you are as a human being. If you are greedy the spirit you attract will also be the same. If you are of good character you will attract a spirit of that nature. Psychic Channeling is almost like the saying “be careful for what you ask for because this is what you will get”.
If you are inexperienced or do not know how to go into a trance, I suggest you do not do it without an experienced person of medium trance present. You make take on more than you bargained for and may not know how to effectively deal with it. You may also, when being an inexperienced psychic channeler not knows how to come back. So be careful and get guidance from the right sources.

The psychic network of choice for unnamed actors, politicians, and business people is Hollywood Psychics. This network has steadily built a decent reputation in the field, in spite of their dubious claims. There is nothing on their site bad enough to make you scared, in fact, many people have written good reviews saying that they got good readings there.
Types of Readings
Hollywood physics provide readings on particular subjects like family and friends, sex and relationships, horoscope and entertainment, work and money, and body, mind, and spirit. Hollywood psychics employ various methods for their readings such as chat reading, phone reading, and email reading, and from tarot cards to astrology, each psychic uses method of their choice.
To ensure that psychics working from their site are skilled and authentic, Hollywood psychics put their psychics through various interviews and readings with psychics who are already working from the network. Though the screening is not that tough, the objective is simply to ensure that there are no scammers on their site. The reason why many people pass this screening process may down to charisma over ability, but that information is still unexplainable.
Impression of Website
The webpage is a little cartoonish and awkward and reminds me of a 1950s Barbie doll. Although the quality of readings received does not depend on this factor, but it would have done a lot to make me feel confident of getting the best value for my money and having my questions answered if it is designed professionally and give it an uncluttered look. And I would have favored something safer too.
Price and Special Offers
The typical rates for most of the psychics on Hollywood psychics are $2.29 per minute, but the rate depends on the psychic. Nobody can give precise information whether the price is being set by the network or the psychic. It makes Hollywood Psychics neither the costliest site out there nor the most reasonable. With their free 5 minutes special offer, you can conclude if a particular psychic is good enough for you or not, because you cannot achieve much with this free time. However, in the event that you choose the wrong psychic in the first place, whine away your first five minutes searching for that psychic that is good for you.
Honestly speaking, Hollywood psychics is neither the best psychic network you can find out there nor the worst, but if you like their method and approach, it might be a good catch for you. However, there are many other psychic networks around which can give you value for any amount of money you might spend and your time.

One of the main objectives of meditation is to silence the mind. Some people say that silencing the mind makes one dumb, mentally slow, or quiet. This is not the case. When the mind is silenced, it is relieved of any stressful thoughts. Silencing the mind during meditation carries over into the awake everyday conscious life. It can help one to stay relaxed during stressful moments. Or stop one from over-reacting to a small situation because of the space between thoughts. Quieting the mind can create overall well being. It can create a sense of balance with the world, improve ones outlook, improves ones posture, and improve creativity.
Inducing creativity is an objective of meditation. Many brilliant minds have used meditative states to discover, elaborate, or better understand their next great idea. When the mind slows down it relieves its stresses, then ideas reach the mind without obstacles.
Awareness is an objective of meditation. Being aware helps one to have a better knowing of the self. Being aware of what appears before you during meditation helps one to understand their imagination. Being aware of the breath during meditation helps one to know their breath. Meditating in nature helps you to know your natural self.
Being aware of your thoughts during meditation helps you to understand your thoughts. It’s helps you to understand how your mind works. The thoughts that arise after long periods of thoughtlessness are usually thoughts of a brilliant nature. Being aware during meditation enables one to understand how fluctuations with sound, the breath, nature, visualization, and thoughts will focus the mind, and help you to know yourself better.
It is my belief that the main objective of meditation is to get to the place where you are one with your focus and your thoughts to the point where there is not a thought about it. Just by simply being, and experiencing the moment as transformative thoughtlessness, the mind expands. Thoughtlessness evolves into a variety of mental and physical states which make you feel blissful of pure.
Some say that they cannot meditate because too many thoughts come up. I don’t think that an objective of meditation is to stop the thinking process. I believe in directing your awareness to meditate upon something like sound, or visualization. By doing this consistently the mind will achieve thoughtlessness. Just by coming back to your mantra, breath, sound, or visualization you are meditating. All it takes is conscious commitment, and consistency.
