Meditation is an ancient, time-honored practice of quieting the mind. The purpose of meditation is different for each who embarks on that journey: to achieve mental and emotional well being, elevate consciousness, reaching towards enlightenment, and as a foundation for developing natural spiritual gifts. Psychic skills development involves practices and exercises that assist in opening your own natural psychic receiving mechanisms. This allows you to merge with the spirit realm to receive information, healing, insights, comfort, and support. While no two people receive exactly the same way, one especially simple way to develop psychic skills is through meditation.
When the body and mind are in a harmonious and relaxed space, our access to the field of non-ordinary reality increases exponentially. Even if you have no previous experience with meditation, you can learn to incorporate it quite easily into your daily life. Psychic development is like exercise; efforts over time spent building your psychic skills muscle makes you a stronger receiver. With diligence and disciplined effort, you can create your own personal psychic development practice. You do not need to attend group classes to develop your own abilities. All you need to begin is a healthy attitude of experimentation, ideas about how you will meditate and where, and a journal.
Although meditation practices were initially rooted in sitting in silence, it is important to recognize you may not be particularly hardwired for this sort of practice. If you are someone who doesn't relax easily into a silent space for a certain period of time, do not be concerned. Meditation can take many forms: a walk in the park, relaxing under a tree, laying belly-down on the ground to connect your heart to the earth, gardening, or any grounding or mind-calming activity such as cleaning, breathing exercises, Tai Chi, or Yoga. I call this Active Meditation. With Active Meditation, the goal is still the same: focusing on an activity consistently for a period of time for the purpose of finding your center, and clearing your mind. These activities act as a reset for the body and mind, increasing your chances of tapping into natural psychic gifts.
Because no two people receive the same way, crafting your own personal meditation practice may take a bit of exploration, especially if you are a beginner. Some techniques will work for you, and others won't. In the beginning of my own meditation practice, I would shut out lights and lay in the dark on my bed breathing. It was an honorable attempt, but for someone with an active mind like me, it wasn't particularly effective. And I usually fell asleep. When I altered my practice to sitting up in a well-lit space and listening to soothing music, it was much more successful. Here is how to know if you have found a successful technique: you feel more calm and relaxed, you stop talking to yourself in your own mind, thoughts slow down, and you are able to be fully present in the moment. If you can find one or two things to amplify your own level of focus, either breathing, visualization, or music, you will be off to a great start. Eventually you will feel confident in what truly works for you.
When developing a meditation practice for developing your psychic skills, it is important to note that a great beginning point is grounding, clearing, and protection. I advise finding a method that personally works for you.
Here are the top ten benefits of incorporating meditation into any Psychic Development practice:
As you can see, the benefits of incorporating meditation techniques into your psychic development rituals and routines enhances and builds a beautiful yet personally tailored practice. Meditation accentuates and amplifies your natural psychic gifts. In addition, the physical and emotional benefits make meditation a multi-faceted self-healing tool.
