What does it mean to be psychic?

I get asked a lot about being psychic and how I do it and how other people can do it. What I’ve learned from experience is that anyone can be psychic if they focus enough. Some people come by it more naturally, and being psychic just flows for them. Others have to work harder to develop their gifts. I’m in the latter category. I think a lot of people for whom it doesn’t come as easy wish it did come easy, but you have to realize that being psychic is a double-edged sword. Some days, I just don’t want to feel other people’s pain, which is mostly what I feel since pain is a strong emotion that pushes it’s way right out there into the world, and most people are in some kind of pain.

There are days when I just have to hide from the world, days when I feel like I can feel all the suffering on the planet…plants, animals and humans. So you really have to do the groundwork on your energy system so you can handle the emotional information you are going to receive when you open yourself to the thoughts and feelings of others. Most people don’t know how to control their energy, so it gets flung out from their aura indiscriminantly. Any emotion you can think of flies out of a person’s space and if you happen to be near them, guess what? You get to deal with it. The best way to do so is to stay grounded at all times. That’s why I harp on people to ground themselves.

Stevo says there are a couple of ways you can deal with someone else’s energy. You can let it bounce off you, as if you are covered with mirrors. Or you can let it pass through you as if you are made of glass. Either way, the trick is to make sure their energy doesn’t remain in your space. If it does, ground it out. Sometimes when someone attacks you verbally or physically, it’s really hard not to take on their energy. So remember to ground. Another good technique in those situations is the rose technique, which is on my forum. You can also put that person in a pink bubble and send them floating off into space. You can put them in a dodec. There are really so many different ways of dealing with negative energy, you just have to be creative and find what works for you.

Okay, so being psychic doesn’t mean I can find your car keys or tell you what’s going to happen to you tomorrow. There are people who can do that but it doesn’t happen to be my special gift. I get information, intuitions, and sometimes images. It’s mostly the first two, which I then translate into “seeing” so that I can explain it to other people. I tend to be really good at being able to see and heal chakras. It seems to be my niche, as it were. In the group chats I’m good at finding targets and boosting them and I tend to get a lot of information from the Operators.

Don commented on that recently, and I think I get these hints from the Operators not because I’m special, but because I’m most likely to talk about it. Stevo and Carol are both very articulate but less likely to post. I guess I’m more of a blabbermouth! (As Sundance says to Butch, “Just naturally blabby, I guess.”) I also really like to teach people. In fact, my mom was a teacher for many years and I always thought I would be a teacher but I saw how hard it was for her emotionally and I didn’t think I could handle it. I do get mail from people who are in real trouble, just being tortured mentally and emotionally, and it’s always hard to deal with because I want to help and sometimes I can’t.

This is turning into a long post, but really what I wanted to say was that you can be psychic. You just have to work on your energy system, pay attention to what you do with your energy and focus on the etheric realm. It takes practice if it doesn’t come naturally to you. Everyone learns and develops at their own pace. Your higher self will usually slow you down if you are not ready for the next step. I used to get impatient because I wanted to see more and know more, but seeing and knowing carries an awesome responsibility, so you have to make sure you are ready. It is not always fun to see other people’s pictures, or feel their feelings.

    Hello, I am having a very hard time myself. I have just realized I am extremely empathic. Since I was a little girl I have experienced intense empathy pains. To the point that now at 25 I feel pain almost constantly. It’s very strange, because I have started to base the pain origins on my body with certain emotions I receive from people and I think it is becoming finer tuned. I have read two sentences about reading people’s auras and now can do it and did it the first time on accident. I think I have been seeing these for a long time and didn’t realize what they were. Also I can now feel my subconscious and when I have a thought that is straight from the subconscious the base of my skull has some sort of a signal. I have been having strange flashbacks just glimpses of different images that make my heart skip a beat. To be honest I am severely overwhelmed by it and scared and feeling really emotional. It’s hard to keep it together when there is so much going on. Everyday my universe is getting stranger and stranger. I have no idea what to do.

      Hi Melissa,
      Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply. As an empath, the most important thing you can do is keep your space clear. Ground yourself every day, and put a blanket of thorny roses in your aura. The rose and it’s thorns are a natural defense. If you see a rose getting full of dark energy or withering, move it out of your space and blow it up, then replace it in the blanket. You need to read the book “Your Aura and Your Chakras” which I have listed on the right side of my blog page. It’s a good basic manual for grounding and protecting your space. The hardest thing about being an empath is the tendency to take on everyone else’s energy. You’ve got to learn how to protect yourself from that so you don’t have to feel everyone’s pain. Good luck!

    Hi Dooney,
    I know you say get grounded when I contact other peoples energy’s, sometimes it is so hard for me to leave their space, because a lot of these people have real problems and do need some kind of help.
    Dooney I live in Ireland, maybe you could email me back.
    Kind regards

      Hi Noel,

      It is very important to control how you get into someone else’s space, not only because it’s considered spiritually rude :-) but also because you don’t want to start taking on their energy and it’s associated problems. So yes, grounding is very important, as is getting permission from the people you want to help. I know it’s hard to see people in pain and not help, especially if you are really empathetic, but it’s important to protect yourself from taking on other people’s energy. It’s not your job, or my job, to help everyone. That may sound harsh but you can only really help the people who are ready and willing. However, you can boost (send energy) to anyone’s Higher Self without permission and without any repurcussions. Their Higher Self will decide what to do with the energy for their own highest good, and you are simply sending out Love so it’s completely fine to do that. I hope this helps!
