I have searched all over this website and so many people have asked how to control their psychic abilities. I am going to try and teach all of you some ways that I discovered while going through my own experiences, on how to help control or calm your untamed powers.
First of all, a good psychic needs to relax. Don't let stress or worries take over you for a few minutes as you just relax and let your worries melt away. Remember, God gave this gift to you knowing that you can handle it. With the right guidance, you should be able to.
Many people say that meditation is very good to help clear the mind so you can progress, and that is true. Meditation can help improve anything really. Most people think mediation is only focusing on your breathing or an object, which is true, but there is an easier way. Instead of focusing on just your breathing, focus on your body and how it feels. Let the tension escape from you, and then imagine energy running through your toes, and notice how they feel. After a few seconds, add in the feeling of your legs, then hips, then waist, then chest/breathing, up to the arms, shoulders, and then the head.
After you have calmed yourself, think about what category your abilities fall into. Here are some categories that I have heard of:
-Foretelling: Having thoughts, visions, or dreams about past or future events that have happened or will for certain. Ex; can tell what someone is about to say before they do
-Ghost whisperer: Having the ability to see and communicate with spirits
-Energy Detector- The ability to sense or transfer energy. Ex; when you rub a balloon on the carpet and put your hand towards it afterwards, you can feel the static electricity. The closer you get, the stronger it is. Except this ability is like a hundred times stronger
-Hallucination/visions?; The ability to see odd things, such as things that aren't exactly visible. Ex; everyone has a dreaming eye where their psychic abilities come from. Some people can physically see these, though they aren't visible to just anyone. This group is very uncommon.
-Telepathy; Knowing what is happening in someone else's mind at that very moment. Ex; I got a sickening feeling one day worst than the days before and I found out at that very moment a massive hurricane was hitting Mexico. Some people get feelings that someone is in trouble only to find out that they actually were.
So now you know some of the categories, try to decide which one or few do you think you are in. I am River (not my real name) and I belong in the groups of foretelling, telepathy, and was once a ghost whisperer (forced myself to get rid of that one). I first found out that I am psychic about a year or two ago. (check out my other stories, they tell you how I found out) The older I get, the more powerful my abilities become, which is very common for psychics.
Eating healthy and getting a good nights sleep plus a good amount of exercise should help control your abilities better. Too much stress and worry doesn't help, it could only foretell bad things. Instead, think positive. Try to predict the forecast or something.
Remember to not be afraid of your power, but don't let it control you. YOU are in control and don't forget that. This is YOUR mind, YOUR ability so don't let anything or anyone make you think otherwise.
I am not saying that the abilities are never scary because they can be. So let's say that you are an energy detector, and you are trying to transfer energy. You need to focus, but not too much. If I focus too much at trying to predict what someone will say or what is behind a door, it doesn't work. Just let it flow on its own.
Being a fortuneteller, it can be very hard on remembering what has happened or what has not. If you'd like to be more organized, make a dream journal. You'd be surprised how much it may help and how less stressed you'll be about future events. It is also fun to look back at them in five years and remember the things you have dreamed about that has come true, or what hasn't.
Many people are ghost whisperers where they can see and communicate with spirits. Remember that you are still in control because they don't have a body. They may protect you, but may try to hurt you. Don't let them control you or else you'll end up insane like my great uncle who got persuaded to run out on a track and he got killed by a train. Be smart about it. If you don't want it to be there, then tell it! You're in control!
That is all of the time I have for now and I hope that I have helped some of you. If you have any requests on more tips just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put answers in future... I guess you'd call them lessons. Also if you want to talk about any experiences, I'd be happy to help. (sorry this was so long)
