Developing Psychic Abilities
By Jeffry R. Palmer Ph.D.
We all have psychic abilities. Some of us may have more natural
abilities than others, the same way that some of us seem inclined
towards music or mathematics. But just like any other skill, psychic
abilities can be trained and enhanced. The following tips can
help to increase your natural psychic skills.
Meditation strengthens the ties to the spiritual
self and enhances the mind, body, spirit connection. There is no
greater tool available
for increasing psychic abilities than meditation. Through meditation
it is possible to achieve a state of intense awareness of subtle
There are many sources of information regarding meditation available
if the practice is new to you. There are many meditation techniques
for you to choose from and I suggest experimenting with various
techniques until you find one that feels right for you. Remember,
there is no right way or wrong way to perform meditation. It is
only important that you are able to relax and focus your mind.
If you continue the practice of meditation for any length of time,
you will begin to notice the existence of your own spiritual energy.
It is the connection to your spiritual self which provides intuitive
information. Strengthening the connection to your spiritual self
will result in an increase in of psychic abilities.
Try to be more aware of your surroundings. Upon
waking in the morning, make an effort to lie still for a few minutes

completely random and unconnected begin to form themes or recognizable
Try to record your dreams in your journal. If you have been following
the awareness exercise outlined above you will have noticed that
your dreams are much easier to recall. Allowing yourself a few
minutes to be still upon waking makes it much easier to remember
dreams and with more detail, than if you rush out of bed in the
morning and hurry to start the day. Try setting your alarm clock
to wake you up ten or fifteen minutes before your normal waking
time. Give yourself some time to remember your dreams and make
a few quick notes in your journal.
These simple exercises can have dramatic results if practiced
regularly. These steps are just a few of the many techniques available
for increasing your psychic ability. There are many other methods
to choose from. In your search for information regarding psychic
development, it is important to be wary of any methods which declare
that psychic abilities are the result of external forces, or any
teachings which insist that psychic powers are anything other
than a natural human ability. •
