Remember, It's Not Your Power
Another problem many novice psychics face is learning to develop and use their psychic abilities while keeping in mind where the source of their power and knowledge originates. As you continue working on developing your psychic abilities, continually ask yourself where your powers are coming from. Are they there for your responsible use and for the good of all? Or do you have the right to claim it as your own and use it for your personal short-term goals?
Owning something implies a certain amount of responsibility. If you impress on others that you have a psychic power, you will be expected to live up to your ability. Unfortunately your psychic power may not turn on and off like a light switch. Every time you receive psychic energy it may be a little different. Your connection to the Universe can sometimes be very strong and at other times very weak. Your job is to be ready to experience it when it is called for. The more you practice, the stronger your psychic connection will become.
If you take all the credit, then you will have to accept the failures that are bound to happen. If you acknowledge the ownership of the Universe, then there are no failures, only honest attempts to succeed. Once you have established clear universal ownership of your psychic abilities, not only in your mind but also in the minds of others, you will have the freedom to let it flow without the pressure to turn it on and perform.
Develop a positive belief habit as you progress in your psychic growth. The more you give acknowledgment to your Belief and your guidance systems, the easier it will be to avoid the problems of the ego and the conflict of ownership. This will free you up to stay in proper focus.
“I” or “Eye”?
The words you use to describe your psychic abilities and who owns them will either give you the freedom to experience or commit you to success or failure. When you say, “I have a psychic power,” are you talking about yourself or the Universe?
It is okay to use the word as long as you mean your third eye or your universal connection. The Universe has incredible power as long as you accept what it has to offer. If you claim that it is yours instead, will you be able to handle the responsibility?
When you relate your third “eye” to your excitement over your psychic development, you can keep a balance with your ego “I.” Whenever you are aware that you are having a psychic insight, remember to focus on your third eye for a brief moment and give thanks to the Universe for the miracle of knowing. When the insights are very good and you receive praise for your work, you can say “thank you” graciously and tell the person praising you that you will pass the message on to the true provider of your psychic information. At the same time you can feel the peace and love of the Universe radiating through you. Use this feeling as an anchor to your Belief.
It's Okay to Be Excited
It is okay to be excited over the discovery and development of your psychic gifts. It can be an amazing process. Every day can be a new adventure of learning and personal growth. However, don't expect that everyone else will be as excited about your intuitive development as you are. As long as you are bringing positive Universal Energy of peace and love, each person you connect with will have the opportunity to benefit from your enthusiasm. Focus your excitement onto the incredible power of the Universe, and remember to keep yourself in balance with it.
One Step at a Time
However, it is very easy to become so wrapped up in your new psychic adventure that it becomes the center of your focus. For a period of time you may not think of anything else. It may be in your mind every waking moment, and you may dream about it at night. You may grow to resent any outside interference that keeps you from immersing yourself in your psychic development.
As you grow in your psychic ability, you may not think the way you did before you started. This is because your sense imagery has developed, and you are in a state of change. You may feel distanced from those whom you used to be close to.
It is important to be able to find a balance between your psychic development and the rest of your world. Regardless of the transformation you are going through, you still need to be aware of family relationships and your work and other commitments. It is very possible that you will grow spiritually and find yourself out of place with many of your old friends and things you used to do. You may not be able to explain your new knowledge to others, no matter how hard you try.
If you try to progress faster than you should, you will become out of tune with your purpose. You may open up to more psychic energy than you bargained for. Remember to make sure that your chakras are always in balance and that your energy flow is positive. After all, you are only a part of a grand universal scheme that will unfold in its own way.
