Sounds like you're on the right track. One thing I would suggest is trying to raise your energetic vibration to a higher frequency. This can be a confusing path because there's lots of credos out there that say what's good and bad. For your specific spiritual and physical makeup it could be very different from somebody else. I say throw away the books and follow your conscience.
Has your intuition been telling you to make changes in your thinking, behaviors, the company you keep, your job, anything? Follow that. Chances are, it's somebody reminding you who you are, and tuning in to that is going to open your other channels much more quickly than anything I or anybody else could advise.
