The ancient Chinese text, “The Tao Te Ching” is the
most translated classic of all time next to the Bible. It was
written somewhere around 300 BC and attributed to Lao Tzu, the
great Chinese philosopher. It is the source of the legendary saying:
going out of doors one may know the whole world;
without looking out of the window, one may see the Way of Heaven.
The further one travels, the less one may know.
Thus it is that without moving you shall know;
without looking you shall see;
without doing you shall achieve.”
Perhaps this is a reference to our innate intuitive ability, our
inner resource of knowing, seeing, and being. Our intuition, when
developed, blossoms into extrasensory or psychic perception, revealing
to us a rich vast inner reservoir of possibilities and potential.
We may indeed access all of the world through turning within.
We all have innate intuitive ability. It is so much a part of
us that we tend to not notice the subtle ways that we receive
information about ourselves and the world around us. Our intuitive
sensing is interwoven within our daily reactions and interactions,
so much so that it is not always immediately obvious that our
intuitive sensors are guiding us in our many daily decisions and
concerns. Becoming psychic is in a way simply becoming aware of
our intuitive tendencies and focusing our energy and attention
to further developing them.
We interpret and interact with the world in a variety of ways.
Some people are highly visual. They connect with their environment
primarily through their sense of sight. They notice detail, color
and prefer to learn through observation. Other people are acute
listeners. They respond to noises, sounds, as they are primarily
auditory. Some people are more kinesthetic. They learn and understand
the world more through physical sensation and touch. Our approach
to intuitive and psychic development is also specific and varied.
The four major modalities that we utilize to connect with psychic
energy are our emotions, our mental perception, our physical bodies
and our spiritual awareness. With each of these modalities comes
specific ways of connecting to psychic energy.
intutives are highly empathetic, and emotionally telepathic and
clairvoyant. Pauline sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night
with waves of feelings washing over her. She recalls conversations
and interactions with people who she has talked to during the
day. Emotions and feelings such as sadness, anxiety or even happiness
fill her. She has come to recognize that what she feels as she
lies there in the dark are not only her own emotions, but also
the feelings of those who she has connected with during the day.
Even brief encounters seem to affect her.
intuitives receive psychic energy through mental telepathy, clairvoyance
and spontaneous knowing. They naturally attune themselves to others
thoughts and ideas and they can be prophets who intuit the future
of cultural, medical, and scientific innovations and developments.
Marina is a successful business owner. She has a special knack
for predicting the popular trends in his design business and she
always seems to be in the right place at the right time for business
opportunities. Before the busyness of the day Marina prepares
herself by sitting quietly and clearing her head; she is then
able to tune into and act on her inner knowing throughout the
intutives pick up psychic energy primarily through their bodies
and do extremely well with psychometry, which is the ability to
receive impressions and information through objects. Kara works
as a massage therapist. As she works with her clients, smoothing
out the tightness and tension in their muscles, she trusts her
hands to guide her. Over the many years of massaging people she
has found that her hands somehow know where the body may be holding
pain, sadness or anxiety. When she gently touches these areas
she often sees flashes and images of her client in challenging
situations. Kara then imagines love and healing moving through
her hands to them.
intuitives often receive energy in a more ethereal way. They may
have visions, precognitive dreams and they may be able to sense
spirits or people who have passed to the other side. Jared always
felt a special kinship with his grandfather. When he was young
he would spend his summers with him on his farm. When his grandfather
died a few years ago he left Jared the farm and over eighty acres
of land. Jared knew that it was impractical for him to leave his
job in the city and move the rural location. But he couldn’t
bring himself to sell the beloved property. He asked his grandfather
in spirit for a sign to let him know what his wishes for the future
of the farm. The next day a neighboring farmer called Jared and
asked him if he was interested in selling the property to him
to increase his pastureland. To Jared this was the sign that he
was waiting for.
psychic type interprets the world around us and it can also be
our guide into the inner mystical realms, as it reveals to us
our unique spiritual capabilities and purpose. When intuition
is focused within, higher states of spiritual awareness and a
conscious connection of oneness with all of life permeates our
the emotional intuitive this is the journey through the path of
the heart as they are naturally attuned to divine states of love
and service to others.
intutives are evolving from ego to enlightenment. They are inclined
to be truth-seekers on a path of transformation of consciousness.
Their task is to open their mind to divine illumination, instead
of just recycling their own thoughts and biases. Their minds can
be attuned to the super-conscious, absorbing truth and possibility.
the physical intuitive the journey is that of the divine made
physical. They witness the divine in all living things and they
have the natural gift of channeling healing to others through
spiritual intuitive is attuned to the higher realms of essence
and pure spirit. They bring to this world the gift of transcendence
and the ability to be in this world but not of it.
