How do people become a psychic?
Many people feel you have to be born with it, but that’s only partially true. You can be born with psychic gifts just as you might be born with artistic gifts or musical gifts, but here’s what people forget: even people who weren’t “born with it” can learn to paint brilliantly, or become concert pianists.
The same holds true for being a psychic; it’s a lot like being a carpenter or a computer programmer: it’s a skill. Decide you want to do it, practice and work hard at it, and you’ll get better and better.
Now, here’s the best part: you don’t have to believe me. You just have to do it.
Interested? Then let’s get you started on your very first intuitive practice.
Time commitment: 5 minutes.
Goal: Determine if you are “supposed” to be doing something.
Who this works for: Anyone who doesn’t actively hate themselves. Seriously, if you’re dealing with severe self-loathing, this won’t work and you’ll need to sort that out with a different kind of expert.
The practice: Is This What I’m Meant To Do?
This question came up in a reading last night and it’s been on my heart since. I’m often asked if they should to go on a trip, or indulge in a hobby, or spend time with a certain group of people, or switch careers. The questions take many forms:
- Am I supposed to do this?
- Is it right to do this?
- Should I keep doing this?
- Or the statement that begins with: “I know I should do this, but…”
It all boils down to one thing: what does the Universe want us to do?
But that’s a trick question.
Because you are the Universe. You’re an integrated part of it, linked in every single way to the fabric of this reality.
And that includes how you feel about what you’re doing, and what comes next.
So, if you find yourself asking any of the questions above, the answer comes from a different set of questions:
- Do I personally really feel like doing this?
- Am I enjoying this?
- Is this fun?
The Universe designed you, as a fundamental part of itself, to work most efficiently by pursuing the things you like. The reason you like those things, in fact, is because the Universe designed you to like them. That’s how the Universe is trying to get you to do what you’re “supposed” to do.
Life properly lived, by design, is enjoyable.
So, if you like something, that’s a pretty good indicator that you’re supposed to be doing it.
Spend some time with this when looking at your home life, your work life, and your relationships. In what ways are you denying what the Universe really actually wants for you in the name of some vague philosophy involving words like “should” or “realistically” or even “selflessness”?
Now, I’m not saying be completely 100% selfish, because that makes for a miserable life too.
For most people, the problem goes in the opposite direction. Most people treat themselves terribly, putting themselves in situations they don’t enjoy, dealing with people they don’t love, and pursuing experiences that they don’t find fulfilling, all in the name of some highly intellectual and reasonable nonsense the Universe had no part in designing.
So, for your first true act of intuition (and remember, this is supposed to be an easy one!), ask yourself: is this fun?
