Mention psychic power to most people and you get the message they don’t want to talk about it. Talk about psychic ability and you are likely to be dismissed with a laugh. Google “psychic powers,” “psychic ability,” or “psychic awareness” and you will see hundreds of thousands of results featuring everything from psychic readers to lessons on developing your psychic abilities.
There are almost 50,000 Google global searches per month for the term, “psychic ability.” Even though this is a low number, searches for learning about psychic ability are even lower. Global searches per month for the terms “how to develop psychic ability,” and “how to improve psychic ability” range from fewer than 1,000 to a little more than 1,000 searches a month. The results of these searches range in the hundreds of thousands, meaning that there are hundreds of thousands of resources out there for developing or improving psychic awareness, but few people are taking advantage of these resources. I interpret this as a reflection of the fear most of us still associate with anything psychic.
Let me tell you something – whether you know it or not and whether you like it or not, you are psychic. Everybody is psychic. Being psychic is no big deal. I think the big deal is how we look at psychic ability. Denying your psychic ability is like denying you have a brain.
The Fear Factor
The combination of power mongers since ancient times passing on their rules of entitlement and our dependence on physical science (talk about co-dependence) to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong, has compromised our ability to trust ourselves.
I’m not against physical science. There’s no question that humanity has gained immensely from physical science. And we stand to gain even more as quantum physics reveals more and more about the invisible realities of life.
I’m not worried about power mongers. They are losing their grip on humanity. Just look at world events of the past few years. As we gain the courage to develop our full potential, we will learn to listen to our psychic promptings and direct our lives with confidence.
What Do Psychic Powers Look Like?
Psychic powers have a boundless range of qualities. They can look anything like the little something that tells you where to find a parking place to the dream about a future event that comes true.
The general assumption is that unless you are a professional psychic prophesying dramatic events, you are not psychic. The truth is, the only difference between professional psychics and you is that they receive clear impressions and trust them. It’s their expertise. It’s their calling.
Being a psychic advisor or an intuitive counselor is like any other profession; like being a master carpenter, for instance. Certain people are called to the art and craft of fine carpentry. They love doing custom cabinetry, building furniture; it fulfills them and they are good at it. The rest of us aren’t interested in being a master carpenter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hang a picture or build a deck on the back of our house.
Psychic ability is more than an art and a skill, however. It’s an inborn quality like your brain waves with the potential to help you live a more fulfilling life. You have the choice to develop your psychic ability. You have the choice to learn which hunches to follow and which not to follow. You have the choice to pay attention to your innate knowledge or to ignore it.
How Do Psychic Powers Serve You?
Your psychic awareness is immensely practical and always there. Remember the last time you were talking to someone who tried to convince you he was just fine when you had the sense that he was upset about something, or the time someone was handing you a line of bull when you knew instinctively she was lying? We were born psychic to help us navigate the tricky tides of life.
I wrote four articles about psychic awareness that will give you more information about your powerful life-enhancing abilities; your gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, prophecy, and clairaudience. You can learn a lot about yourself from them. If you’ve already read these pieces, you may want to read them again, maybe with a different point of view this time.
I hope this article helped you see psychic powers as a natural part of who you are. Your thoughts?

Since Sunday is Mother’s Day, I’d like to pause Friday Funnies this week in order to pay tribute to mothers everywhere.
The mother-child relationship is a deep and mysterious one. It begins before either is ever born. Motherhood may or may not be part of a soul’s purpose. If it is, the soul agrees to parenthood before entering life on earth. We mothers enter into a spiritual contract with each of the souls we will eventually encounter as our children.
Our mothers are our first contact with physical life. Our development in the womb creates a powerful, two-way bond of love. If you have a loving relationship with your mother, it’s easy to feel this bond. If your relationship is not so close, it’s not so easy.
When I look back at my tumultuous relationship with my mother, I remember knowing, deep in my spirit, that she loved me in spite of what we were experiencing on the physical plane. I think my knowing was the remembrance of that spiritual bond between mother and child that underlies whatever happens in the 3-D relationship.
We all want our mothers to be what we perceive as perfect. Very few of us have our ideal mother. On the other hand, maybe we do. Maybe, if we are willing to learn, they embody the lessons that can make us the best Self possible.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere. Thank you for your presence in our lives.

It is well understood that everything is energy – even thoughts are energy. Our thoughts, beliefs, and memories create an energy pattern around us, making us magnets for similar thoughts. Every thought we think travels and reverberates into infinity. We live in a psychic soup full of thoughts and influences from everywhere. Many of the thoughts that we take for granted are ours are really impressions we pick up from others.
Paranormal studies in thought projection have shown that a subject can pick up a thought no matter how far away he/she is from the person projecting that thought. It happens in everyday life. When you think of a friend and that friend phones you shortly after your thought, you have picked up your friend’s thought of calling you. It’s natural. Every thought we think influences something or someone. Fortunately, we have the power to choose our influences. Unfortunately, most of us are not aware of this power we have.
We pick up impressions from other dimensions, as well. Ancient wisdom has taught the existence of many dimensions of consciousness. Science is investigating the existence of other dimensions. Psychic mediums routinely communicate with souls who have passed on into another dimension.
It’s not news that thoughts attract like thoughts. If, for instance, you wake up in the morning and stub your toe while getting out of bed, then spill the coffee you just made, and bump your head on the shower door, you are probably still upset about stubbing your toe. Your original upset has been carried forward into your day. If you change your thoughts, your day will change.
If you keep the upset over stubbing your toe all through your day, your day will likely get bumpier and bumpier while your mood becomes darker and darker. If this goes on long enough, you will likely attract a confused soul who has the same mindset as you, just as you seem to be running into grouchy people all day. It’s physics. Like attracts like. Even though the phrase has almost become a cliche, “change your thoughts and change your life” is the way life works.
You can think of souls who pass on in confusion as people just like yourself who are trying to hold onto old patterns because they don’t know any better. If they were compulsive eaters in physical life, they are still looking for ways to keep on eating. They seek attachment to a compulsive eater so they can fulfill that need. The same is true of souls who passed on with a compulsive need for drugs, drinking, smoking, and sex. They will find someone with their same need and try to attach themselves. It’s what they do. It’s the only life they know.
Instead of fearing them, we can be healing these souls and releasing them. Soul releasement is a powerful healing practice; the spiritual equivalent of psychotherapy. People are released from the influence of confused souls, and confused souls are free to move on to the next step in their spiritual evolvement. Although soul releasement therapy is not yet well known in the United States, it is a growing profession.
To sum up, confused souls do not like positive energy and cannot exist in it. When you change your energy from negitive to positive, they have to move on and find someone else to attach themselves to. I wrote an article about a year ago called The Unquiet Dead which goes into detail about the influence of confused souls and how to avoid it.
You are in charge of your thoughts and feelings. No disembodied soul can influence you unless you give it permission. If you have uncontrollable emotions, if you have thoughts that are not characteristic of you, or if you have addictions, read the article and practice the energy techniques described in it. Taking charge of your energy is the first step in resolving your own confusion and opening the way to spiritual freedom.
Next time, I’ll talk about soul releasement and exorcism.

Many years ago, at the start of my metaphysical training, I learned how to manifest intentions. I’d never before purposefully used my thoughts to get what I wanted, and I was excited to learn. My first experience involved moving.
I wanted to move to a particular apartment building in my neighborhood, which was not easy to get into. It seemed everyone else wanted to be there, too. It was a small building with only four units, and the apartments were very attractive. You had to watch the rental ads like a hawk to see when one was available.
I had looked at an apartment in this building before, and had just missed getting it, as it had been rented earlier that day. I was really disappointed, but I decided to apply what I was learning about manifestation to make sure I got the next one that became available.
I enlisted the help of my son, who was 11 at the time, and we visualized ourselves living there. We talked about the mirrored living room wall that I loved and went shopping for kitchen accessories and furniture. I watched the neighborhood paper closely for the ad that would surely show up for us. After a few weeks, I stopped looking. I can’t remember if I was distracted by other concerns, or whether I became discouraged, or I just forgot.
One day at work some time later, I happened to pick up the paper, and there was the ad I was waiting for. I immediately called the number and told the landlady not to rent that apartment to anyone else. I would be there after work to sign the contract. When I arrived, she told me the ad had gone into the paper that day, and I was the first to call.
I was overjoyed. The process was so easy, it seemed like magic. The hard part was waiting. I think eventually forgetting to look in the paper was a way of letting go and allowing the universe to bring me what I wanted at the right time. I’ve learned if I want to manifest an intention, I need to trust that the universe is working with me on it.

As you know, I talk a lot about human potential. For years I taught people how to develop their in-born psychic abilities and use them in practical ways in everyday life. The main focus of my book and this blog is to help demystify the psychic and spiritual parts of our nature so we can learn to use these gifts we were born with to help ourselves and others live their best lives.
Today I want to share with you an article written by Dr. Jill Ammon-Wexler about the power of your mind. Dr. Jill and I share the belief that psychic ability is a normal part of human nature and can be developed to help us improve our quality of life.
Here is a quote from Albert Einstein that you will find if you click on the related article link, “Intuition – An Intuitive’s View” where I found it. I agree with him.
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
Read Dr. Jill’s article and let me know what you think.

Reincarnation and Parallel Lives
According to the research I’ve done, about 24% of Americans believe in reincarnation, and some say that belief is on the increase. We all know that reincarnation is a foundational belief in some religions and is seen as the work of the devil in others.
Then there is the idea of parallel lives, in which we could be living multiple lives at the same time. There is no way to prove that we have lived before or are living multiple lives at once. We only know our own experience for sure.
I am biased toward belief in reincarnation because it’s easier for me to understand past lives than parallel lives. So I’m calling it past-life recall because of that and because it seems like an appropriate term to apply to my experiences.
My first past-life experience convinced me that this was an excellent method to use in my counseling practice. I can’t say enough about its effectiveness as a way to resolve anxiety, fear, anger, grief, self-judgment, and obsessiveness. I never had a client who did not experience healing with this process.
Two other things I like about past-life regression are that the process is quick and the results are lasting. In a matter of an hour or so, you can be healed of emotional trauma forever. An important advantage of it is that the person doesn’t have to experience the full impact of the trauma they went through originally.
My Personal Experience
If you are familiar with past-life recall, you know that some people remember vividly every detail of their former experience; the country in which it took place, the year in history, and the setting (see related article about Shanti Devi). A few even speak in the language they spoke at the time. In my case, I remember my experiences clearly, but sometimes I can’t see the faces of other people there. For me, the historical and visual details are generalized but the feelings are sharp and clear.
My first past-life recall occurred after touring a plantation in Georgia. It was a beautiful place and I felt very peaceful there. Some time later I was thinking about the experience and wondering why it felt so peaceful and comforting, since slavery was practiced there. Then I began to see in my mind a black woman in a beautiful, big white house and I found myself watching a kind of movie unfold.
I saw myself as a skinny, plain-faced black girl of about 11 or 12, tall for my age, and I knew I was this woman’s daughter. We worked in the house; it was a serene environment in spite of the circumstances. I got the feeling I had been a sheltered child, ignorant of the violent repression of blacks by whites.
One of my duties involved solemn and utter secrecy. I took it seriously that what I was doing was very important and was never to be revealed to the white people we worked for or discussed among the workers. I’m not sure I even knew we were slaves.
My secret job was to row a boat to a certain location in a swampy area. The location was sheltered by tree branches hanging over the water, and there were trees and reeds growing out of it. I would meet someone there in a boat, along with a passenger, a black person. I would take the passenger back to the house in my boat. The grownups would take over from there, and I would never see the passenger again. I knew from experience not to ask questions.
As I watched and felt this experience unfold in my mind, I knew that I had been unknowingly participating in the Underground Railroad.
My last trip was to bring about the end of my life. I arrived at the meeting place early, so I had to wait for my contact. After a while, I saw two white teen-age boys approaching in a rowboat. They were laughing and talking as I watched them from the reeds. I was not alarmed, thinking they would pass by when they saw me. That’s not what happened.
They began taunting me as soon as they spotted me. When they got close, they started rocking my boat and then tipped it over. As I surfaced, they pushed me under repeatedly until I drowned. I don’t remember what emotions I was feeling at the time. I may have been paralyzed with fear and astonishment.
What My Experience Meant in My Present Life
I grew up in Massachusetts with water everywhere – the beach, the town river, and ponds and lakes nearby. Naturally, one of the main activities in my childhood was swimming with my sister and our friends in the summer. My father taught us to swim, and we took swimming lessons at camp.
At around age 10 or 11, I became deathly afraid of deep water even though I was a good swimmer. I couldn’t bear to be touched while I was swimming. As I swam with my friends, I was afraid to admit that I was scared of the water, so I hid my fear as my heart beat like a hammer every time I swam out over my head. I carried this fear into adulthood until I experienced the lifetime of the slave girl. I have been free of that fear ever since.
Past-Life Regression in Psychotherapy
Millions of people have experienced healing by recalling other lifetimes. Simply recalling a past-life experience is enough to heal an emotional trauma forever. Extensive discussion is not necessary. I have found that the experience itself brings the understanding necessary to create resolution.
Hypnosis used to be the only way to achieve past-life recall in Western psychotherapy. Now, guided meditation is used, as well.
Back in the day, few psychotherapists used past-life regression, and those who did would not admit it publicly. But dogma in the medical profession is gradually relaxing, and more therapists are embracing it. Dr. Brian L. Weiss is one of the pioneers in the field and has written several fascinating books about using past-life regression in his psychotherapy practice.
Past-life recall has helped people understand present-day relationships, forgive and be forgiven, heal fear and anger, and gain a deeper understanding of their spiritual nature. It is exciting and inspiring to me that this process is becoming available to more and more people who can be freed of emotional burdens they have been carrying for lifetimes.
The Eternal Spirit
In my view, past-life regression is about the soul. It’s not about the brain and it’s not about being rational, yet it is a most profound and effective way to heal emotional trauma. It shows that we carry memories through lifetimes from one body to the next within the eternal, invisible energy that is our spiritual essence.
We can’t prove that past lives exist, but it doesn’t matter. We can trust what our gut tells us. And for some, there is no doubt.

This experience is so astounding to me I have to share it with you.
There is a park near my house that I like to walk in, so I go there often. During one of these walks a few months ago I saw giant machines rapaciously tearing out large quantities of trees and foliage. Needless to say, I was upset, so I asked some of the operators what was going on. They told me they were clearing land for more ball fields. What could I say? I dealt with my upset and accepted the inevitable.
On a visit to the park three weeks ago, I saw that more trees and foliage had been removed. This time I called our City Council. I was told that the ball fields were going to be re-graded, the walking path would be paved, and drainage would be installed. To accomplish all this they had to remove more trees and foliage. They also were removing dead and diseased trees. I was assured they would replace some trees that had been removed, and no more trees or foliage would be taken out. I felt better now that I had the big picture.
Yesterday while walking in my little park, I discovered four new, beautiful trees had been planted in a group beside the walking path. They looked about half grown; three about 15 feet tall and one about 10 feet tall. There was fresh mulch carefully distributed around each one, and each had four support lines attached at the base of its lower branches and anchored in the ground. I was delighted to see them and admired the lovely way they had been placed and how healthy they looked.
On these walks, I turn around at the end of the path and go back the way I came. As I was walking back this time, I thought about those trees and could hardly wait to see them again. I rounded a bend in the path and began to look for those beautiful trees, but there was some distance to go before they would be visible. As I walked, I thought about how surprised and pleased I was that the Parks Department had begun planting so soon.
But I had a surprise coming. When I finally got to the spot where the trees were, they weren’t there! There was nothing but empty space.
I was stunned. At first I didn’t believe what I was (not) seeing, but then I realized I had just had my first clairvoyant experience outside my head. That is, up to now, all my visions had been in my mind. Clairvoyance is not my primary means of perception, and until that moment I had always seen visions in my mind with my eyes closed.
That vision of those trees was so clear it seemed I could have reached out and touched them. I had looked up and seen their leaves playing in the breeze. When I fully grasped what had happened, I felt so elated. I had huge amounts of energy and I was smiling for the rest of the day. I am immensely grateful for that experience. Now I know what it’s like to see as clairvoyants see.
Then there are the messages behind the vision. One is a demonstration and reassurance of how close spirit is to me. The day before in meditation I had declared myself open to more possibilities with my psychic perception. I asked and I received.
Another message could be that some day I may see those same trees in that same place, this time in the physical. If this happens, I will definitely let you know.
If you have any impressions about the meaning of this vision, please let me know.
Every time I think about that experience I get excited all over again. Wonderful things can happen when you are not expecting them.
Please leave comments. I would love to know what your experiences are with psychic perception and what questions you may have, too.

Physics is continuing to rediscover ancient wisdom.
I have recently seen a video that is the inspiration for this article, and I want to share it with you. It is an interview with theoretical physicist Nassim Haramein who has been researching the space that surrounds us and has made some revolutionary discoveries. I was so excited, I Googled this man and watched one of his lectures.
His unique approach reveals the connection between science and spirituality in a creative and engaging way. He demonstrates how we are all connected by the space around us and how we all contribute to a collective consciousness that creates matter. Yes, we create matter.
In the lecture I watched, he talked about sacred geometry and about numbers as a language for spirit.
Listening to him, I could see how psychic ability is a result of our minds being connected in this space-field we live in. We can pick up impressions such as the thoughts of others and future events, and we can perform and receive healing at a distance because we are all swimming in the same soup.
In addition, Nassim Haramein talks about the tremendous potential of tapping into this field to create environmentally friendly ways to power our homes, businesses, and vehicles.
This video presents a truly revolutionary view of the future. I think you will agree with me.
