To begin with, you are already using your psychic awareness in practical ways. In my previous post on this subject (Are You Psychic? What Do You Think?), I mentioned some examples of psychic impressions in everyday life, such as entering a room and immediately feeling comfortable or uncomfortable. Your impression of that room prompts you to adjust your behavior to respond to it. You may find, as you read on, that you are using your psychic awareness, or intuition, more than you thought.

We can use our intuition to gather information that helps us, as well as others. Let’s start by using what I discussed about personality types in my previous post, mentioned above, to help you understand someone else. It doesn’t take advanced psychic ability to figure out someone’s personality type – it’s mainly observation; but by observing, you strengthen your intuition.

One way to have clear communication with someone is to match their personality type. I don’t mean you should be something you’re not. I mean observe their behavior and mirror it to them in your own way. One way to do this is to speak their language. Use your Clairaudient ability to listen for key words they use.

For example, if you hear someone using phrases like, “I see,” “Picture this,” “Show me a picture,” “See?” it’s a clue that the person may be a Clairvoyant type. If that person likes to use charts and graphs to explain things, or draws maps to give directions, they’re likely a Clairvoyant personality. So, when you are communicating with this person, use words to draw a mental picture for him or her, or draw actual pictures to show what you mean. And say, “I see,” to let him know you understand.

Clairaudient personalities use words like understand, logical, sensible, common sense, and organize, and they are usually blunt and get right to the point. They act promptly, they are efficient, their ideas are well organized, and they are results-oriented. It’s important to be consistent with this type. Say what you’ll do and do what you say. Be brief and come to the point quickly when communicating with Clairaudient people, because they get bored with details. They’re mainly interested in the facts. “I understand,” reassures them that you get what they mean.

The Precognitive type of person is versatile and usually has several irons in the fire at the same time. They say, “I know,” and “Y’ know?” a lot and seem to have everything under control without looking organized or being systematic. They talk about the future and are always thinking ahead. They often use the language of their second expression of psychic awareness, which could be Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, or Clairsentience. When dealing with a Precognitive type, you likely won’t have to explain things more than once. They already know what you mean. They’ll even finish your sentences for you.

Clairsentient people like to make small talk (“How are you?” “How’s the family?”) before they get down to business. They are highly responsive, and it’s their way of connecting with you. They may greet you with a handshake, a pat on the back, or a hug, depending upon your relationship. If you ask their opinion, they will tell you how they feel about it and will ask, “How do you feel about it?” They are natural healers, and will show concern for those who seem to be worried or not feeling well. They instinctively do the right thing in almost any situation. So lead in with small talk when communicating with Clairsentient people, and ask them how they feel when you want their opinion.

One of my most memorable experiences with personality types was transformed from dreadful to rewarding. I was working for a company as a secretary. The head of the department was a Clairaudient type – a born leader, lots of self confidence, well organized, a man of action. He was also impatient, intimidating, and a bully (out-of-balance traits of this personality type). One day it came to me that I would be working for him in the future; very upsetting, because I didn’t like him. When the day came, I had my plan. I would match his personality type (the balanced part).

Our relationship began with him ignoring my “Good morning” and “Good night” to him every day. Eventually, he began to growl (really) a response. Later, he began to say the words back to me without eye contact. Finally, he graduated to greeting me by name. I almost fell off my chair the first time he stopped by my desk to tell me a joke.

I was very businesslike with him. I set my boundaries (breaks and lunch time) and made sure I was consistent, performed my work professionally, and didn’t waste his time with details or small talk. We eventually grew to respect each other and, finally, to actually enjoy working together. His directions were clear, simple, and to the point, making my job easier, and he had a great sense of humor.

You likely interact with these personality types every day; they can be your co-workers, your children, your spouse, your parents, siblings, or friends. Try matching their words and their personality responses and watch your relationships improve. You can also show them how to respond to you more effectively.

Here is a meditation that will help you refine your four psychic perceptions. Have a question in mind that you want an answer to or a situation you want help with. Next, set your energy by clearing and centering yourself. Many of you have your own processes for clearing and centering. For those of you who are new to meditation, try this.

Sit comfortably in a quiet place with both feet flat on the floor and your hands resting in your lap or beside you. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing for a few seconds, breathing naturally in and out through your nose. Imagine that your body is filled with white light, and allow the white light to expand into a big bubble surrounding you. When you are calm and you feel chills or tingling, ask your question.

Notice the impressions you receive. Do they come in pictures, words or music, feelings, or an inner knowing? If you have an emotional attachment to the question, it will be a challenge to receive a clear response. Take a minute to detach from the emotions by re-centering yourself in the white light, and try again. You may want to start with a question you don’t have a strong emotional attachment to. When you have received an answer, clear and center yourself again in the white light. You may want to write down your experience. A variation on this process is to ask for a picture, a feeling, or words.

If you don’t get the results you wanted, be patient with yourself and try again another time. Just like learning to ride a bike, this takes practice. Putting pressure on yourself won’t produce results faster. Relaxation is the key to successful meditation.
