Confidence in psychic abilities
I've been practising with psi recently. Sometimes it seems to flow, and I really surprise myself with my abilities. Then sometimes I start doubting myself a lot. I get scared of being wrong (funny fear I know, but there you go). I might even not be 100% sure still that psi exists (how can I still doubt it??) So I lose the connection.
It's really hard to trust my clairvoyance. There's so much fear and unconsciousness there clogging up my third eye.
I don't know, I wanted to share this. What can you do to trust this stuff more?
You inspired me to write a blog entry to answer this:
How can I learn to trust my psychic abilities?
I read your post and Erin's blog entry.
If all else fails, then try calibrating your psychic abilities by practicing meditation. Taking detailed notes in a journal and observe the variation and coordination of your interpretations of your psychic sensing.
Unless your psychic tool of perception is 100% pure, it will give inaccurate readings or interpretations but if you know the degree of its variation, then you can factor that in.
There is also the mental process of filtration which occurs automatically and which might prejudice a pure perception, such that when you see it or perceive it, your interpretation of it is off.
A gross example might show this.
Let's say that I saw an accident. I saw a driver swerve his steering wheel causing his vehicle to ride up a curb and smash into a child. The child dies. I am then called to court as a witness.
When cross-examined, I state what I saw but somehow I convey the impression to the jury that the driver deliberately swerved the steering wheel.
The driver is then found guilty of manslaughter and sent to prison, since the child died.
All through the trial, the driver testified that it just happened and that he could not help himself even though he had no deliberate intention of killing the child or mounting the curb.
Some months after the driver was found in his cell in a seizure. After he was hospitalized it was determined that a nerve in his neck caused the seizure and a doctor vouched that this same nerve must have triggered the swerving action in his arms during the accident.
The point here is that even if you actually perceive something psychically, still your mind might interpret that incorrectly. So then you might mislead yourself and/or someone else.
So if you are patient and keep a record of your psychic perceptions and interpretations, then you would develop a way of calibrating your ability and even if it is not 100% correct, at least you would be able to figure in its degree of inaccuracy.
Sometimes in psychic perception one sees only the surface level and even if one sees that clearly, one's interpretation of it would be off since one does not see the underlying motive. At other times one might see the deeper level but since one does not see the surface level, one cannot really know how the factor will play out since in some people a yes on the deeper level is a no on the surface level and visa verse.
So that is another factor, learning how to see on both levels. Everything has to be translated into a cultural medium for it to make sense in the social setting. So no matter what the deeper level is, the surface level of social interactions is what will count in the end.
I resonated with a lot of what you said:) I've experienced what you said, about receiving something for another person and not knowing how to interpret it, but then telling it to the other person and them understanding exactly what it is supposed to mean.
Though I'm still not sure about chakras! The visualisation meditation doesn't really resonate with me.
What can you do to trust this stuff more?
I know a teacher for clearing up self-doubt etc. (he would talk about chakra's a little)
If I understand right it has everything to do with chakra's turning on psi.. maybe you should google it and and find "chakra psi" or "psychic" and see if you find a method with chakra's, better.. or if you insist.. google it and find a method without.. ;)
If the teacher is good, I'd love to look into him!
Interesting what you say, and I'll keep it in mind. Keeping track of my psychic perceptions and then whether they were correct or not does make sense and to some extent I've been doing it, though journalling might be a step up, so thanks for mentioning the idea.
I'm aware that sometimes the mind can mispercieve an accurate perception. They send me images and I often have no clue what to do with them:p
Store them. Some of them may simply serve what you are struggling so hard with right now - validation.
Watch the video here.. but wait for the last half and see if what people say resonates..
Level 1 Video
Jim doesn't exactly resonate well as a teacher least not on the videos :) and not always in person ;) but I can say I consider the tools/ideas I learned last weekend kind of a mind/body kind of upgrade that supposed to be lasting.. and it seems to be (it's early) I could point you to free works that kind of teach the same thing but it may be easier to be guided..
Also to be sure I'm not 100% he teaches level 1 anymore.. If I heard him right last weekend was his last class so you can only go dvd (could be wrong but..)
"Factoring in" any kind of inaccuracy would lead me to trust myself less, when I've found my greatest growth comes from trusting what I get, implicitly.
Through meditation the fluctuations decrease.
It's like if you have a spring, you can just let it flow as it will which means that the pressure will vary according to the pressures under the earth, and you might put a piping system to regulate it and to cause a constant flow.
So by meditation one may bring one's psychic perception and intuition into a more objective usage.
Otherwise you method is the thing.
