Psychic abilities are something that is within every one of us since birth. When we are born, we have not been influenced by the social and cultural preconceptions that people have. At this age, we all have the greatest connection to Source or Spirit.
As we grow older, we learn that these abilities are frowned upon. How often have you heard a comment about a child being “too old” for imaginary friends. These friends may not be figments of the child’s imagination, but something they are able to see that as we grow older, we stop paying attention to. These “friends” could be fairies, or other Earth Spirits.
When you begin your spiritual path, you begin to want to connect back to those abilities and with the Source of all things. In order to connect with Source effectively, our abilities need to be developed.
What are Psychic Abilities?
There are four main types of psychic abilities that people have. You can be stronger in one than the others, but most people have a little bit of a few if not all of them. You can work to develop these abilities over time, but sometimes people may just be born with a stronger gift.
Don’t be discouraged if you are not strong in one of the abilities. Like all things, if you are willing to put some time to develop a skill, you can improve it. To develop a strong ability, you need to focus on it and really get in touch with it.

How To Connect with Your Psychic Abilities
Each of the four abilities are a bit different, but you can work to connect with all of your abilities through meditation and opening your third eye.
When you open your third eye, you are using multiple abilities. You feel the energy coming into your body (clairsentience), you visualize the energy (clairvoyance) and sometimes, if you can quiet your mind you can tap into claircognizance. You can check out my post here on more ways to open your third eye.
Now each of these abilities can be strengthened on their own, but if you are not paying attention to them, you’re not going to know what they feel like. When you meditate, you calm the hustle and bustle in your brain and just be. This allows you to really notice what each ability feels like. The more that you practice, the more likely you will be to notice those same feelings when you are not meditating.
