Over the years I have written and talked about the essential aspects of psychic power and intuition. First, both of these aspects of our spiritual power work hand in hand, and since we as a global consciousness, have evolved and opened more to our inner resources these abilities are even more magnified within our psyches. I have seen an interesting shift in the perception of what being psychic means to my students and clients. My teaching of psychic power being a spiritual attribute is finally making it into people’s psyche, even though it has been a standard truth for many years. I have always been an advocate of teaching the truth about psychic power as being spiritual gifts of the soul, and not a circus side show bit. Sadly, through the years there has been a bad reputation spun on anything that is psychic or intuitive in nature. Back in my home town in the Ozarks of Arkansas it was believed by most that any psychic subject was spawned by Satan. Another major misguided point of view was that the perception of “psychic” was perverted into a gypsy fortune-telling trade. This mis-perception is largely due to bad B films, the television phone psychic trade and other media in reactions to misguided attempts from celebrity psychics looking to shine with their magic powers.
The Edgar Cayce readings stated it very clear, and I as a psychic healer have always based my career on this simple but powerful truth; Psychic is of the soul, and since we are all souls then we are endowed with psychic potential. So being psychic is not a “special” gift given to only a few, it is part of the spiritual makeup of every soul. As our soul evolves, our psychic potential evolves and we are becoming vastly multidimensional. I will not go into depth on opening to your psychic intuitive powers here; I cover that in my book Reader of Hearts. This is for the conscious soul that has become aware of their spiritual power and asks they question, as I hear so often now; what’s next? The next step in psychic awareness is the understanding of what we can do in helping the “shift” of our planet along by using our psychic intuitive power. First let me convey the union between psychic power and intuition as I want to give you a clear picture of the resources within you. I simply say we are all psychic intuitives, because we all carry both senses. Some folks think that people are endowed with either one or the other of these spiritual powers or that even psychic power is better or stronger than intuition. Let me clear some of the confusion.
There are two questions I am most often asked by students during my workshops.
1. Am I a Psychic or an Intuitive?
2. Is there a difference between the two terms?
My answer to both questions is a definitive Yes. Yes, you are both psychic and intuitive, and yes, there is a HUGE difference between the two terms. But they work hand in hand with each other. Think of the term psychic as being an extended level of intuition. Intuition is more of an energy language of the soul. It’s an extra sense that is more personal in nature for an individual. It’s a whisper from your higher self. Think of intuition as more directed internally. Intuition springs forth many spiritual tools such as energy healing, hunches, gut feelings and meditative awareness and creativity. Subtle power is the nature of intuition. Intuition always directs us back to ourselves. It also gives us helpful information for our path. Psychic is more extroverted and impersonal in its energetic nature. It’s a magnification of intuitive awareness in the process of accessing energy more from others and the environment. Psychic power is the ability to access information from energy and intelligences outside of one’s inner personal dynamics. Psychic ability springs forth the gifts of reading others intuitively, communicating with the dead, accessing potential future realities, and medical clairvoyance. These are all psychic powers, just to name a few.
Intuition is more personal and psychic is more impersonal in its accessing of energetic information. You can also think of psychic being the expanded mind that accesses energetic information and intuition is the key it uses in the interpretation of the energy information accurately and with clarity. When I do my healing sessions, I’ll see a vision or get an impression of my client, psychically. Then I run it through my intuition by asking….what does this mean for my client? By that action I have given my intuition permission to access the personal results of the psychic vision. That’s why many people have visions or psychic flashes about something but they never think to ask their intuition for its clarity on them. They are so hung up on the “glamour” of the vision that they have forgotten to ask for its meaning and direction, intuitively. I see many psychic people out there that talk to the dead, or psychically tap into people with great accuracy, but they are missing one thing. Their spiritual connection to their intuitive voice. Remember intuition is your direct communication link from your higher self.
So many who are psychic are truly talented, but their information has no sustenance at all because they are not asking the deeper meanings. You can also have someone, mostly healers and counselors that are highly intuitive by feeling people’s emotions, and their pain. By asking your psychic self to elaborate you can get the actual vision of the situations in that person’s life that may have caused the dis-eased feelings. I hope you can now see the essential union of both psychic and intuitive powers. You can see a great example of the union of Psychic Intuition with medical Intuitives. They’re able to psychically see the diseased area of the body, and through their intuitive connection they are able to get the information of why the organ of disease has manifested in the body. Like I always say, trying to be “psychic” without a strong spiritual/intuitive foundation is like living in Wisconsin with a lactose intolerance problem. Enough said!
