An Introduction to Psychic Abilities

Let’s talk about Psychic Gifts for a moment since there seems to be a lot of confusion about it but definitely, a lot of interest.
Let us first begin with the definition.

PSYCHIC relating to or denoting faculties or phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws, especially involving telepathy or clairvoyance.

Here are some of the questions people might be asking about all of this:
  • Are only some people Psychic?
  • In what ways can we be experience psychic phenomena?
  • How do we know if we have abilities and aren’t just delusional?
  • Can you become Psychic?
Let’s begin with the first point.
Are only some people psychic?
No.  Everyone has the ability to be psychic. There are some people who have natural open abilities and have always been tapped in, but that could be due to various reasons that are directly related to their path, purpose and other things. But everyone has the ability to grow and hone those skills.
As with all skills, there may be some who are more gifted at some types of psychic abilities or rather, who tend to have certain areas that show up a bit stronger than the others. Which brings us to our second question.

In what ways can we be experience psychic phenomena?

There are multiple ways in which we can do this. The knowing and feeling aspect is probably one of the biggest ways, which we refer to as the Clairs:
Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Claircognition and Clairaudience being the main ones and new names being created for all the new ways as we discover along the way.
Clairvoyance is the gift of seeing and this can be those who get visuals and messages of things whether in their waking state or in their dreams. They can also sometimes see beings, lights, shadows, etc. Another aspect of this is getting messages through distinct images in cloud shapes, water or other things, etc.
Clairsentience is the gift of feeling and you can physically feel sensations in your body, receiving messages of things around your or things about to happen etc. These can be chills, feeling warm or cold suddenly and various other very physical sensations felt in your physical body.
Claircognizance is the gift of knowing and the information just is in your mind and comes to you instantly surrounding various things. It is very clear and precise knowledge & information that is presented to you that is pretty much just downloaded into your mind when that information is needed.
Clairaudience is the gift of hearing. You can hear frequencies and tones, sometimes words, messages and music. It is always very distinct and isolated when heard.
Then there is the realm of Telepathy where we can share thoughts and feelings with those we may be strongly connected to which is a whole other section that would require its own post.
You can experience any one of these or all of these. Some of them may be to a lesser degree and some people might experience them to a much higher degree.
How do we know if we have abilities and aren’t just delusional?
This is a great question because we are absolutely not taught to listen to our own intuition and inner voice which is our number one guidance system. In fact, the programming we are indoctrinated into specifically primes us to shut all of this out.
We inherit a very loud inner critic, we learn self doubt, we give away our autonomy to others and in turn, we lose the ability to fully trust our Self. We are taught that this is all very “woo woo out there” fake stuff so that even if we do experience anything remotely close to these things, we often shrug it off or we leave it to the side, never allowing ourselves to explore it and tap into it.
Also, most of these things are not very out there kinds of information we are receiving. At times, it can be.. when we are dealing with spirits from other realms such as galactics, angels, our guides or those who have passed on, but for the most part, it is very gentle information that gives us insight, Clarity, truth and information that we need in order to navigate ourselves through situations. That is literally what these abilities are for.
To help ourselves. To help one another.
Can you become Psychic?
You already are. Everyone is already able to be psychic. Those abilities are just very buried and blocked through programming and traumas which cause us to be disconnected from the Self. Being disconnected from the Self, in turn, leads us to be disconnected from Spirit. They both go hand in hand. How we can expand our abilities is to heal and connect deeper with our Self.
My experience with all of these abilities was incredibly limited growing up. I had a time when I was tapped in when I was younger. As children, we often are naturally connected to our abilities because we have not yet learned that programming that disconnects and separates us from our Self.
My clairs have been getting a lot stronger since I began my healing journey over 7 years ago. My ability to sense, feel, see, hear and know things has grown tremendously. And I have given myself permission and the space to trust myself and lean into that fully. My channeling when I do energy healing and readings has become much more clear and detailed. I have even begun to have mediumship experiences while I am doing my healing work with clients which has been quite profound, moving and beautiful.
I have really grown into my gifts and they continue to grow and strengthen as I deepen my connection with myself and heal all of the patterns and wounds that have kept me separated from my inner being for most of my life. This is ultimately our goal here and the purpose of healing. It’s not about having all these gifts and abilities.
It’s about the journey back to Self.
I hope you found this helpful and I really do hope that you continue to do the inner work and healing that will reconnect with your Self & your Spiritual Gifts.
Much love,
– Giuseppina
