How To Develop Your Own Psychic Gifts

Should You Work On Your Own Psychic Development?

Are you asking yourself how you can become the next Nostradamus or Edgar Cayce?  Do you want to give psychic readings like the experts that you see on television? 

Do you watch the television show The Long Island Medium or Tyler Henry weekly and ask yourself, “How did they get to have such strong psychic gifts?”  If you are asking these questions, then please keep on reading. 

How To Develop Your Own Psychic Gifts

This article is here to help you to develop your own psychic gifts and abilities.  Soon, you will realize that being “psychic” was inside of you the whole time.

Let us first start this article out by saying that everyone develops their own psychic gifts differently. What works for one person may not work for another. 

First, it is important to ask yourself what is most appealing to you.  Do you want to work with spiritual tools such as: tarot cards, runes, astrology charts, angel cards or fortune cookies?  Do you see yourself simply using your clairvoyant gifts and abilities without any tools? 

This is important because this will help to identify who you are as a person.  It has been found that we tend to be better at what is most appealing to us.  If you have a desire to learn how to read the tarot, you will be able to develop your psychic reading style a lot easier because you already have an interest in this. 

Did Nostradamus Have An Interest In Astrology/Psychic Development?

Psychics like Nostradamus had an interest in astrology. Even though he was raised Catholic, he had an interest in astrology.  Edgar Cayce was more of a clairvoyant reader.  He also felt a natural ability to connect with the dead and the living through clairvoyance.  He didn’t use any spiritual tools. 

When you first start out giving psychic readings, you must get as comfortable as you possibly can.  You will find that being at peace will help you to give better psychic readings overall. 

Your next step is to prepare yourself for giving a psychic reading.  It is important to take at least 15 minutes a day for meditation.  This will help you to raise your energy levels to see into other people’s lives. 

The Russian psychic that worked with the K.G.B. Nina Kulagina said that she had to meditate before she gave a psychic reading.  She found that it allowed her to use her psychic gifts to move objects. Meditation allows you to be more at peace. 

If your mind wanders during a psychic reading, you are not going to be able to focus in on another person because you are to be focused on yourself. Try to clear your mind through journaling and talking out your problems with a close friend, counselor or pastor.

How Clear is Your Mind When It Comes To Psychic Development? 

Some people are clearer in mind than others. If your mind is to cluttered with problems of your daily routine, you are often going to feel that its to hard to give a psychic reading. 

After you have meditated and prepared your mind for giving psychic readings, it is important to begin getting more in touch with your clairvoyant gifts.  If you are choosing to work with tarot cards, its important to learn more about them and how to use tarot cards. 

The Ultimate Guide to Tarot by Liz Dean is a popular book that many tarot students by on to learn how to read tarot cards.  The book sells for only $18.49 paperback.  You can find it for cheaper if you have a Kindle. 

If you are on a tight budget, you may want to start watching videos on tarot cards on is a great resource for anyone needing to learn anything for free. You can do the same if you are looking to use astrology for your psychic readings.

If you want to use clairvoyance, there are several steps involved in which you need to follow in order to become a psychic reader.  For starters, you need to start trusting in yourself and what you see inside of your mind. 

As you start to give someone a psychic reading, certain pictures will pop into your mind. At first, you may think that it’s just a thought.  However, over time you will come to see this as being a vision of what you are seeing for someone else.

Can You Find Someone to Give a Psychic Reading to In Order to Get Better At Giving Readings?

It’s important that you find someone that you can read for. For clairvoyants, this is the scariest step to taking in becoming a psychic reader.  You may have failed at this before, but now its your time to take a stand and focus in on what you desire.

In order to become a better clairvoyant, you are going to have to give free psychic readings on a regular basis.  At first, your clairvoyant readings will be all over the place.  You will feel like you have no idea what you are doing.  Here are some steps to follow when giving a psychic reading:

  • Ask someone if you can give them a psychic reading.
  • Tell the person that you are new at giving readings and would appreciate their positive feedback as you tell them what you see in their lives.
  • Don’t think about impressing your subject. Simply tell them what pictures you are getting in your mind or what you feel they may be going through.
  • If you get a name, tell the person that name whether you feel like it may pertain to them or not.
  • Focus hard on what you are seeing for the person and never be afraid to tell them what comes to you.  The more that you hold back, the worse your psychic reading will be.  Being authentic is important because these first steps will help you to build your psychic gifts to becoming more powerful later.
  • Don’t worry about getting the wrong information.  Remember, you are just starting to learn what you are seeing in your mind. You are beginning to determine whether that vision/thought/picture is for you or the person that you are reading for. This will take time to learn. It often takes years to master this ability.  The reason why most people fail at becoming psychic is because they expect it to automatically start working.  It will take years for you to develop your gift.  Please don’t pressure yourself. Let things flow naturally.

Its important to know that giving your first, second and third psychic reading is scary.  Even after 30+ years, I still get afraid to give psychic readings.  In the back of your mind, you are always wondering if what you are seeing is correct and if the person that you are reading for will say that you are a fraud. 

Your intentions are right because you want to help people by seeing into the past, present and future for them. However, how real is your vision and does it make sense to the person that you are reading for?

Will You Let Fear Hold You Back From Psychic Development?”

Battling fear is one of the main reasons why meditation is good for you. It will help to keep negative thoughts out of your mind.  Also, the more that you give free psychic readings, the more experience you will get.  You will fail many times when giving a psychic reading.

You will not be 100% correct.  Sometimes, you will tell someone what you are seeing, and they will tell you that its not right.  However, allow at least a year to pass by before saying that your psychic reading was off.  Prophecy often takes time to reveal itself as being true. 

There are still prophecies that were predicted in the Holy Bible that have not come to pass.  One of these prophecies is the end of the world and the battle of Armageddon. 

Predictions like these were made thousands of years ago.  Nobody knows for sure if they will ever come to pass. If you are a Christian, your faith tells you that it will. 

Are Your Spiritual Beliefs Important When It Comes To Developing Your Psychic Abilities?

Your spiritual beliefs have a lot to do with the outcome of your psychic reading. Belief has power and so does faith.  If you have neither, you will have to reexamine your spirit and see what you do believe in. 

It’s important to ask the person that you are reading to allow you to read their energy. You may be surprised to learn that many people are blocked and therefore don’t want you to read their energy.  This can make your job as a psychic a lot harder.  It is important to feel comfortable with the person that you are reading for. 

In today’s 21st century world you have many options when it comes to where you can give a reading.  Today, you can give a reading: face to face, chat online, phone, email, skype and other ways.  It’s important to choose which works best for you.  Some websites are dedicated to having only chat, phone or email psychic readings.  Find out what works out best for yourself. 

You can’t force your accuracy to come sooner. You must try and measure your accuracy on each individual reading that you give.  Once you start to gain confidence in telling people what you see, you will be able to get feedback. Getting feedback allows you to see if you are “hitting the nail on the head” or simply getting a thought or an opinion. 

Is Your Psychic Intuition Stronger At Different Times of the Day?

At times, you will feel a bit more “psychic” than other times.  At times, you will be walking down the street and seeing something for a stranger. At times like this, its important to not say anything unless you randomly start to have a conversation with that person.  It’s best to not say anything because you don’t want people to think that you are weird or invading their space without permission.

A lot of men and women that feel that they have a psychic gift and want to explore it take courses and classes.  One place that is well known for training psychics is Lily Dale Assemblies in Lily Dale New York. 

Lily Dale is a spiritualist community of men and women that have psychic gifts. It is one of the largest spiritualistic societies in the world.  They have courses going on there all the time with people attending classes and lectures. You can also make friends with other mediums that live there on campus. 

You can also attend psychic groups locally by visiting  This website connects you with people that are in your local area and that are looking for ways to develop their psychic ability and to use your own psychic ability in a group format. 

You will often find that doing psychic readings at different times of the day is not the same for every spiritual adviser. I personally like to give psychic readings at 3:00 a.m.  I feel that the air is calmer, and people tend to like readings when they are off from work and wanting to get a reading. 

“Read Psychic Books and Learn More…”

Sometimes, you will find that reading books help you to get a better understanding of your psychic gifts.  I read the Bible each day for around 2 hours before my psychic gifts began to jump out. I started to practice automatic handwriting as well. 

I allowed spirit to speak through me when I was to scared to give readings to people that were in need.  I guess you can say that automatic handwriting prepared me to be a good psychic. 

When you begin to receive a thought for someone, you may ask yourself if you should say something to the person that you are thinking about.  This is the scariest part of being a psychic reader.  You normally don’t want to tell someone what you see because you are afraid of rejection. Every psychic goes through this period.

Experiencing rejection makes you stronger.  With every rejection, you learn what is truth and non-truth. You begin to understand your psychic gift more clearly. 

You will never advance as a psychic unless you take yourself out of your comfort zone.  When you see a psychic giving someone a reading on television, they make it look so easy.  Just stand up in front of a crowd and tell people what you are hearing.  However, this took that psychic years to develop their confidence to do that. 

Can You Get Out of Your Comfort Zone to Advance as a Psychic?

As you experience growth, you will begin to feel that you can talk to people about a question that is on their mind. You will find that most people these days love to talk during a psychic reading.  Believe it or not, nobody was ever meant to talk during a psychic reading.

The reason for this is because it ruins your trance.  The best psychic readings are those that allow you to just say what you see and have nobody speak while you are speaking.  I gave a psychic reading one time for a full 40 minutes. 

The person that I was reading for did not speak at all. They listened for an entire 40 minutes. They were shocked by the information that I was picking up and didn’t dare to interrupt my trance. They knew in their heart that if they did, the information that I was picking up for them would not have been as specific. 

Once you begin to learn the depths of the spirit world, you begin to pull out information such as names, dates and much more.  This only happens when you get deep into the spirit with your eyes closed and you can just tell someone what you are seeing.

Does Fast Pace Living = Higher Spirituality?

Our fast-paced society is often making it difficult to reach deeper levels of the spirit world during a psychic reading because most people won’t stop talking. The psychic industry has turned into a complaint hotline. It’s like everyone that wants a reading has the need to just talk.

There was a time in history when this job was more for counselors and pastors.  Today, people are using psychics as counselors and pastors. However, psychics are not meant to hear people’s problems.

Their main function is to tell someone what they see for their lives without having to know much about the person. 

Padre Pio was a Roman Catholic priest that probably would have been called a psychic today.  He lived during the 20th century.  He was able to reach the conscience of people and be in more than one place at a time. He is most famous for having the stigmata. 

He also felt like he had a gift and he was never formally trained by anyone.  He just began using his gift without anyone’s permission.

I have found that your psychic side will come out of you more and more as each day passes.  There will come a time in which you just say, “Oh the heck with it, I will just give someone a reading and see what happens.”  You need to get to the point in which you don’t care what other people think. Some people develop this rather early in their lives and others do it at an older age.

Is Clairvoyance Passed Down From Generation to Generation?

In gypsy culture, it is common for the mother to tell the younger child to start giving psychic readings to people.  They often push them to take a chance at giving psychic readings. This push helps the young psychic reader to feel more confident in giving readings.

I wish that we all had a mother or father to give us a push to give psychic readings.  However, most psychics must do this on their own and develop their own intuition on a day to day basis.

Believe it or not, psychic intuition is not as complicated as most people want to make it out to be.  In fact, we all often sense something about a person that we meet.  Our senses are not always on target. However, when we practice our spiritual gifts, we begin to learn more in depth ways of seeing the future for someone else. 

You should also know that most of your psychic readings will be about a person love life.  Most people today are suffering because they cannot find their soulmate or someone that will simply love them.  We have a nation and a world that has forgotten how to love. 

Be prepared to get asked the same question repeatedly.  When is he/she going to call me is the most popular question that a psychic gets asked?  Love has grown cold today. 

When Edgar Cayce was giving readings in his lifetime, most people were concerned more about their health and those sent overseas during the war.  Today, the world has made a drastic turn. 

Hopefully you have a good understanding of how to develop your own psychic gifts.  Being a good psychic is more about letting go of your fears and just telling someone what you see.

What Are Psychic Gifts?

Psychic gifts come in all different ways. Someone may be blessed with the ability to read a deck of tarot cards while another person can read someone clairvoyantly. Other psychic gifts include numerologists, astrologers, horoscope psychics, runes, reiki healers and much more.

When you have a psychic gift, you begin using it to help other people. You begin to use it to assist someone in learning about what may be coming up for them in the future.  The more that you use your psychic gift, the more you will come to understand how the spirit world works.  It’s important to always look at the spirit world with an open heart.  Learn to understand what is in store for the future and what we can learn from it.

The gift of clairvoyance is special because not everyone has this gift.  When someone begins to learn more about their sixth sense, they begin to develop this gift.

Are You Shopping in a Psychic Gift Shop for Spiritual Tools?

If you are thinking about teaching yourself tarot, astrology or runes, its important to get familiar with a psychic gift shop.  These types of shops allow you to have large selection of the spiritual tools that you need in order to start practicing your gift. 

Often when we feel lead to a spiritual tool, its because we are being enlightened into seeing our future helping others. The main reason why people do psychic readings to begin with is because they want to help someone with their problems. 

Men and women turn to psychics when they feel that they are having problems in love, money and career. It is often a time in their lives when they want to see everything working out for them.  However, it takes the powerful work of a psychic to give a reading to change someone’s life. 

You can find psychic shops online or in your local area.  They are often called metaphysical bookstores or witchcraft supplies.

  • Horoscope Psychic
  • Telepathic

The Psychic Told Me I Have a Gift

If you recently had a psychic reading, the spiritual adviser may have told you that you have a gift. You may be wondering what you are gifted in. Perhaps you have a gift for reading people and don’t even know it. 

Most psychics got their start by not knowing anything about reading people. However, after learning their psychic gift, they began to give readings to people on all different kinds of topics. It’s important to first examine your heart. See what gifts you have inside of you. Are you feeling that you would like to learn about something that intrigues you?  We are often drawn to something that we are going to be good at with practice.

Are Psychic Medium Gifts And Development Rare?

If you can speak to the dead, you are not alone. Every year, millions of people around the world want to speak to the dead and can’t.  The fact that mediums know how to speak to the dead says a lot. It means that you were born with a psychic medium gift and it can be used to help people. 

When someone loses a loved one, they often wonder if that person is okay or what they are trying to tell the living.  This can be a bit difficult to understand.  Sometimes, our lives are not what we want them to be. At times, you will have to look at your life and wonder if speaking to the dead is helpful for you. 

Many times, you can’t help but to hear what the dead are saying to you.  They will often come to you at odd times. Sometimes you might be outside walking down the street and then a dead person will try asking you to do something for them.  At this moment, its best to acknowledge the spirit and then listen to what they are saying. 

It’s best to gain experience by reading other people. Many mediums got their start out of their homes and eventually began taking their psychic practice public.  They would often listen to what they heard from the dead person and then use it to give messages to the living. 

Is The Gift of Clairvoyance In Your Mind?

The gift of clairvoyance has no spiritual tools. It is often best to use this spiritual gift if you know that you have it.  Often, you will sense something about something. Your intuition will tell you that something is about to happen.

You may not know it now, but your mind has a third eye in the center of your forehead.  This eye can investigate the future and see past, present and future events. When you have this gift, you can begin to use it to help other people and to see things that they cannot. 

Often, clairvoyants work on psychic hotlines. The main reason for this is because they can see their vision clearly when they close their eyes.  With the other person asking questions on the other side of the phone, its no wonder why clairvoyance is so powerful.

The psychic can answer questions about love, money and much more. You will find that the gift of clairvoyance gets stronger as you use it. If you don’t use your spiritual gift, it tends to die.  You don’t become as accurate.

In order to become an accurate psychic reader, you are going to have to use your psychic gift several times a week.  You don’t have to set up a psychic shop anytime soon.

However, it is necessary to give free psychic readings to people that need direction for their lives. The psychic reader will be able to direct them best and show them every step of the way what is about to happen for them. 

Does Developing Psychic Abilities Take Years?

It can take years to develop your psychic abilities. The reason for this is because you have a spiritual gift within you for helping others.  However, you may not know how to use your psychic gifts.

It can be scary at first.  Your first fear will always be that maybe you don’t have a real psychic gift and it’s all in your mind.  Maybe you are an ordinary person with no gifts of clairvoyance.

However, its important to do a lot of meditation in order to relax your spirit before doing a psychic reading. This will allow your mind to be clear. You will be able to see for yourself that you can take on new challenges and work with what you got within you. It’s important to learn what works and doesn’t work for you. 

In time, you will have to see for yourself that love is something that takes time to build.  You may not always feel that you are ready to get to the next stage of your intuition. However, practice makes perfect. Most clairvoyants spend decades perfecting their clairvoyant gift.  It is not uncommon for a clairvoyant to have a more perfected gifts in their senior years of life.

Some psychics don’t become accurate until they are in their 60’s.  It may take years of training in order to be 99% correct.  Most clairvoyants that have reached a near stage of perfection do so later in their life.

The reason for this is because it takes a lot of discipline and training to recognize your clairvoyant gift. You can perfect your gift by giving many psychic readings. The more readings that you do, the better that you will get. 

Giving psychic readings is not a guessing game. You really see what will happen and then the person that you are reading for acknowledges that what you are saying to them is correct.

Will A Psychic Training Course Help You?

Most psychic training courses are ineffective because they often don’t give you a chance to use your psychic abilities.  Instead, they will often teach you what it is to be a psychic out of a textbook. 

In order to get good at giving psychic readings, you are going to have to do them.  This takes time and effort. You must put yourself into a situation where you can read people as they come to you. 

This takes time and effort. You may or may not be able to do this quickly depending on where you live. If you can give psychic readings via chat, phone or in person, it will be helpful. You will be able to touch peoples lives through your visions. 

At first, you will be afraid of what someone has to say to you.  You may be looking at yourself and feeling like you may get the information wrong. This does happen a lot of times during training. 

You are supposed to get things wrong because you are developing our psychic abilities.  If you think about it, the psychic gift doesn’t work the same for every single person. The psychic gift is one that takes time to develop.    

I would only recommend taking psychic training courses if you feel that you must understand what it is to be psychic. I also recommend them if they are in a live group setting in which the teacher is going to allow you to give a psychic reading to someone in the group.  In this way, you can learn a lot about the spiritual realm and what the future has to offer the both of you. 

Is Mediumship Development Best Done With Someone Sitting in Front of You?

If you are looking for medium development, its best to have this done when someone is sitting in front of you.  This is a rare gift as is because most people can’t hear from a dead person.  The fact that you can says that you have a special and unique gift. 

It’s okay to have mediumship parties at your home in which you will give mediumship readings. In this way, you will be able to entice the group by giving them a reading from a deceased loved one.

You may be able to pick up that someone’s mother left a will that is hidden in a bank vault somewhere. You may also discover that there are people around you that are trying to warm you of something. Perhaps there is a danger that you are not aware of that you can pick up from the deceased person. 

Psychic mediums try to initiate spiritual contact because they have an important message that they are trying to give. In this way, you begin to focus on what is most important in life and you begin to see that the spiritual realm is trying to speak to the living.

Discover Your Psychic Type by Choosing an Area that Interests You:

  • Tarot
  • Clairvoyance
  • Runes
  • Prophecy
  • Reiki
  • Astrology
  • Horoscopes

Developing your own psychic powers is important because you won’t be able to rest until you have perfected them. I know that before I was able to use my gifts of clairvoyance, I would often sit down and feel like I was supposed to be helping people with my clairvoyant gifts and was not doing so. 

The psychic gift is a calling and not just something that you do as a hobby. Most people that get into giving psychic readings do so because they felt that they were supposed to do this as a child. 

As adults, we realize that we may not have all the answers.  However, we try to go after what makes the most sense to us. Your spiritual is a personal thing. Nobody can tell you what you should or should not believe. You will come to the realization that you are called to do this, and that God will open doors for you. Over time, you will be able to see that you can develop your gifts to perfection. 

Only the strong will do well with psychic gifts. If you live in fear worrying about what other people will say about you, your gifts will never grow. It’s only when you take on new challenges do you see growth. 

What Is Some Meditation for Psychic Development?

It’s important to get into meditation daily. Clear your mind from everyday problems so that you can focus on other people’s problems more. If your mind is still thinking about a problem that is happening in your own life when you are trying to give someone a psychic reading, it will not turn out well for you.

You won’t be able to give good information to the people that need it the most. It looks like there is a lot happening within you.  You can easily learn more about the future through your own psychic readings.

In meditation, you will often get revelations about one thing or another.  It’s important that you allow your mind to have at least 15 minutes of relaxation each day through these types of techniques. 

Many people use meditation music that they find on or another website in which you have a wide selection of different types of meditation music.

You can simply relax and hear peaceful music as you forget about your daily problems. It’s important for you to set an alarm clock for meditation because you will often worry about how long you are meditating for.  There are times when you will fall asleep during mediation.  You don’t want to sleep to long.
