Psychic: (greek psychiokos - psyche, soul or that which
is mental) to sense, to understand and to interpret for practical
purposes, a force that enters in and emanates out of the body,
mind and/or spiritual or ethereal realms without use of the 5
Everyone is psychic to some degree, some people are just
more in-tune with that side of their mind-body-spirit connection.
These gifts are really abilities and like all abilities, some
are stronger than others.
This gives the impression that the psychic ability is a "gift"
rather than a common ability or sense that everyone has. As someone
becomes aware of their abilities, their often said to be "opening"
to their gifts. In reality, they're merely walking into a new
phase of their spiritual growth that allows them to become aware,
recognize and accept their abilities as real.
As you open to these abilities, Divine forces participate
in your growth to test and teach you certain lessons for service
and discernment. When this occurs the positive and negative forces
(work or fight; take your pick) with us to "shed our vices",
to remove the blocks that will inhibit the progression of the
ability. When these lessons are taking place, a persons energy
shifts and changes. Some friends maybe at odds with the changes
they see in you, and their attachments can deteriorate and fall
way. The same is true for work situations, or attitudes that
you've long held about a particular topic. You're growing during
this time, and therefore your perceptions of the world, the world's
perception of you, must also grow and change.
The most important lessons to learn and achieve is understand
how ego and greed can effect the pure connection to these spiritual
sources. Even the smallest hint can bring the level of vibrational
energy down and can possibly allow earthbound and/or negative
forces to 'attach' to your psychic mind, instead of the higher
divine forces that provide the pure information.
There's a mired of psychic abilities and terms to describe
those abilities. Here is a short compiled list to help you understand
the different types and levels of psychic abilities.

Psychic vs. Channeling
A channel is different than a psychic, in that when one channels
they do not interpret the information or energy being received
from spirit. It is given to the client just as it is received.
Not all psychic's are channels, but all channels are psychic.
As with most things, there are different levels of channeling,
each depending on the mission or purpose of the individual in
this incarnation. For instance, someone may be in this existence
to perform the service of Divine healing. Therefore they are
a healing channel. In their own way, they do channel the energy
from the divine directly into the body of their client. But unlike
a clairaudent channel, they do not "hear" messages.
The 1st level of channeling is to tap into the higher consciousness
of the individual channel. The level of spiritual healers.
The 2nd level is to communicate with the Spirit guides or
teacher(s) of the client, or the channel them self.
The 3rd level comes with the Soul Group, this allows a channel to communicate with any spiritual being.
4th level is with the Divine Conscious Mind. This allows a channel to
communicate with the highest forces of the Divine realm.
Not every channel can reach all these levels, but those that
can reach the 3rd for instance, can also reach the 1st and 2nd.
This level of channeling brings with it a great responsibility
for service to spirit. That service covers things like learning
discernment, unconditional love, sharing knowledge, and helping
people achieve their own empowerment and enlightenment.
The 4th level brings with it some special energies or lessons
for a channel to achieve before this connection is allowed. And
not just anyone will be given the opportunity to achieve that
level of channeling. 4th Level Channels are also called Multi-Dimensional
Channels, because they can reach into multiple dimensions of
the God Conscious mind. They reach this 4th level, only through
trance or semi-trance and with guidance from the Divine energies.
The energy that is sent through the connection is too great for
a conscious channel to handle, no matter how powerful or strong
they think they are. Thus the trance state is a key tool utilized
by the Divine to make these types of connections.
The universe is a hierarchy, with laws of balance and order.
If these requirements did not exist, then anyone could be a channel
just by raising their hand. No spiritual enlightenment, no karmic
connections and no wisdom needed. Now would you want to get information
about your job, loves, or future from someone who hasn't been
prepared by the divine to be a messenger. Let's face it, that
is exactly what a channel is, a messenger of spirit.
The ability for a psychic to gather information about an
item hidden from their physical view, often at a long distance.
The term was introduced by Russell Targ and Harold Puthoff in
1974. The problem with this term is that it's new and is reportedly
something that has been recently developed. A large market for
lessons and services popped up around this term, especially since
it's been incorporated into modern day entertainment mediums.
In actuality this is a very common ability practiced by everyone
on the planet. Ever lost your keys and tried to stand in your
living room to "see" where they are? That's what this
is all about. Nothing more, nothing less. The more connected
you are to your psychic senses, the easier it is for you to connect
to an item and see what it is, or where it is, or gather information
The Responsibility and Accountability
of Psychic Messages
All professions come with a level of responsibility. This
is especially true when dealing with spiritual messages. As a
Psychic, or even a Minister, Priest/Priestess or any type of
Spiritual Adviser; a person takes on an additional layer of accountability
with the information they provide. People look to these professions
as experts and often adhere to their guidance without question.
Right or wrong on their part, it adds a level of responsibility
that cannot be avoided. You will be held accountable if not by
physical forces, than by Spiritual or Divine forces.
There is a GREAT deal of responsibility that goes along with
the position of psychic reader or channel. If you are unsure
of the information you're receiving, then tell the client that.
If you're really unclear about some of the information you're
receiving or picking up on, then ask your guides for clarification
before you give it. If you're still unclear, skip it and say
nothing. This is how one acquires discernment, which is a key
ability in becoming a psychic reader.
The alternative for both sides is gaining karmic debt. As
the reader, you're karmic burden is greater. If you give the
wrong information to an individual and that person makes decisions
based on your information, than you have interfered with their
path in this life. Big no no. However, if you're the client and
you make choices solely based on a reading, then you too are
gaining some karmic debt. By not taking responsibility for your
own life and your own choices. Some people even phrase this is
as "Giving up your power". I won't get into the issues
of the word "power", but the concept is correct.
It's up to the receiver to determine which people have the
talent and experience and which ones don't. But sometimes you
need to the reading results to make that determination. So set
up some criteria before you have a reading to help with your
determination. Learn more about Giving/Receiving

a psychic and a client.
