It is believed by many cultures, that as human beings we are all born with natural psychic abilities. Though knowing we have this innate ability and using it are two different things. For example; We are born with two hands and a natural ability of dexterity and co ordination. By being taught certain skills and through practice; We learn to use our hands to write, paint, build and create. Without, being taught these skills, we might stumble upon them or learn to develop them independently. But it is unlikely that we would ever be able to fine tune them to such a degree where we would be able to fulfill our full potential. I believe this way of thinking can also be applied to the development of the psychic mind.
Whilst some people are born with a natural aptitude for psychic abilities, others have to work hard to develop them. But I do not believe that there is any doubt, that with the right kind of attitude and self commitment to the task. Anyone can to some degree learn to manifest their psychic powers. To access the psychic mind, you need to master the ability to open what is called ‘The Third Eye’. The third eye is the sixth energy point of what is called ‘the chakra system’. There are Seven major chakras and many minor ones. The Sixth Chakra, is considered to be the mind centre. It is seen as the direct connection to higher learning, spiritual wisdom and psychic vision.
Anyone who is considering developing their psychic ability should consider learning as much as possible about the chakra system. As it is an integral part of the energy body of a human being. Each chakra directly relates to different parts of the body, on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. To be able to function well as a psychic, ideally all these chakras need to be working normally. As any imbalance or blockages can hinder psychic development. Also, having a good working knowledge of the chakras and being able to recognise when one is out of balance can help to diagnose and alleviate any niggling health worries. There is a lot of information available on the internet with regard to the chakras. So it is not difficult to equip yourself with this knowledge. The more effort you prepared to put into your psychic practice, the more you have to gain and benefit from it.
Opening The Third Eye, which is situated at the front of the forehead, between and slightly higher then the eyebrows, is not always easy. The most common way of doing this is through meditation and visualisation. It can also be done through chanting. Doing all three combined is very powerful. You can also enhance the use of this chakra by using colour, oils/incense and crystals. A few suggestions for this are as follows:
Crystals: Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Azurite, Sodalite, Fluorite, Anglite, Aqua Aura
Essential Oils: Jasmine, Lavender & Frankincense
Those with a balanced Sixth Chakra are imaginative and keenly perceptive. They are not judgemental of the unknown, rather they are open to receiving guidance and trying new experiences. They are less inclined to need material possessions or other people to fulfill them. They are accepting of the world around them and see things in a positive light.
