Give Yourself Permission

You are more psychic than you think!

Practicing and using your intuition will result in a stronger link to your psychic awareness, but you may not know where to star t or even what tools to use. Before you start, there’s one important action I want you to take: Give yourself permission to explore and develop your intuition.

I’ve found the following exercise, which I use in my workshops, to be very helpful and fun to do. I’ll ask someone to pretend that she’s already psychically aware. She will then choose someone else in the room to whom she feels naturally drawn. She’s instructed to give any information she’s receiving, even if she feels that she’s making it up. There’s no pressure to be right, so she loosens up and has fun doing it! Her imagination and psychic abilities work hand in hand to create a flow of information. Sure, there are as many misses as there are hits, but the student and the rest of the class become pleasantly surprised at how much accurate information will be given. This is all because they’re letting their imagination run free. So it’s important to have fun with your imagination as you learn to expand and use your intuition in your daily life—eventually, you will tap in to even more of your psychic potential.

Here are some simple suggestions you can also try as part of your development:

  1. Ask yourself, “How many e-mails will I receive this morning?” or “What will my boss be wearing today?”
  2. When the phone rings, see if you can guess who’s on the other end before you pick it up.
  3. When your utility bill arrives, try to guess how much it is before you open it.
  4. If you’re feeling confident, see if you can divine a word or two from the next day’s newspaper headlines.
