Many people believe it psychic ability it is something that is not accessible to most of us and that if we have these skills, we are somehow gifted or special. Abilities like clairvoyance, or being able to see things that will happen, seem like rare occurrences, but intuition, or having a hunch about something and then following it, happens much more often. Intuition is a form of psychic ability, like clairvoyance and the ability to see auras. We come into this world at birth with a propensity for psychic abilities. Children have particularly strong psychic abilities. Over time, the reality of this temporary world takes over. Because psychic abilities are perceived as abnormal in today’s society, they are effectively crushed out of existence at a very young age. Once we lose touch with them, very few of us ever get them back, leading most people to think we never had them to begin with.
Psychic abilities are alive and well within each of us, if we want to develop them. There are many ways to develop the latent psychic traits we each have within us and most of them require a willingness to work. Strengthening your skills can be as easy as listening to your intuition and acting on it in all situations. By doing this, you will be surprised at how accurate your intuition is, which strengthens your resolve. Whatever skills you have and want to develop, chances are that specific exercises have been created to help you do so. One of the best ways to develop your general capacity for psychic experiences is through conscious astral projection. Astral projection, also called out-of-body experiences, happens to each of us when we go to sleep at night. We actually have several bodies, but only one of them is physical. Our other bodies are based on energy and are not local, that is, they are not limited to time and space.
Astral projection occurs when our astral body leaves our physical body for a time to explore the astral realms, usually while our physical body is at rest during sleep. Since we are not conscious during sleep, we rarely remember these adventures, and if we do, they are usually explained away as astral projection dreams. You can learn to astral project during your fully conscious waking state and receive the full benefit of being aware of when you are playing in the astral realms. This experience, when achieved while you are aware that it is happening rather than while you are sleeping, is one of the best ways to link your conscious awareness to all the latent psychic abilities waiting for you in your subconscious; skills we all have brewing beneath the surface and waiting for your rediscovery. One of the most interesting things that experienced astral travelers report is an increase in other psychic abilities such as auric vision, clairvoyance, and intuition after they begin their astral travels.
Astral projection gives us direct access to the subtle realms of light and energy that we are all a part of, unconsciously, every moment of our lives. Perhaps this limited conscious exposure to these subtle realms is all we need to jump start, to bring our own latent psychic abilities into action. Either way, it’s clear that people who want to develop their psychic abilities would do well to begin a practice that involves conscious astral projection. Not only is it very adventurous and exciting to travel through the astral without difficulty, but it also apparently strengthens those lifelines to psychic abilities that we might have shut down as children, giving us a second chance to develop our natural gifts during the adulthood
