Dear Bonnie: Is everyone a psychic or have psychic abilities? I seem to have the gift of hearing what everyone is thinking. Are we born with this gift? And how can we use it for the good of others and ourselves? It is not always pleasant knowing what someone else is thinking, but it sure does come in handy in certain situations. — April
Dear April: Everyone is born with their own psychic centers. These centers are called the chakras in reiki.
The third-eye chakra helps us to see the spirit world along with symbols, pictures and little movies being played out.
The throat chakra helps us hear sounds inside and outside of our minds.
The solar-plexus chakra, located at the top of our stomach, allows us to feel other people’s energy and gives us that gut feeling we sometimes get about people or situations.
The secret to hearing what others think is knowing when to tune in to the person’s thoughts and when not to. That is where training comes into play to turn off our gifts and know when to tune in. You were born with these abilities, and some people choose to know and learn more about them by taking classes or watching videos on clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience. In simple terms, those terms mean clear-hearing, clear-seeing and clear-sensing or -knowing.
We were born with these gifts to guide us during our lifetime on Earth. Some people’s gifts are stronger in one area. There are ways to train your abilities to become stronger. It is like anything. If you want to play piano, you go for lessons and practice, practice, practice. Your ability gets stronger, and you become more confident with your abilities.
When training with your natural-born abilities, you are taught how to shut off or tune out your gifts when it is not the time or the place. Being open to hearing what everyone is thinking all the time can leave you drained with a lack of energy.
Find a class that will help you develop these gifts in a safe and positive manner.
These gifts are ours to use to make our roads a little smoother. We are all psychic on some level, but we are not all meant to be psychics giving readings without proper training and using proper ethics.
