How to develop your own psychic skills.

How to develop your own psychic skills. Writing about how to develop your psychic skills could not be a more difficult subject to write about. If I were to write about guides or auras, I would find that easier as it is factual. I am writing about something that has to be experienced to know it. All I can share with you is some techniques, but you have to do the rest.


If I was to write about what love is that would equally be as difficult. This is because I don’t feel that anyone has really been truly able to define love. No poet, no playwright, no songwriter. Although they have all had very good attempts. The bible says that love is the fruit of the spirit which combines joy; peace; long suffering; gentleness, kindness; goodness; faith, meekness and temperance. It is everything!


There are also so many different levels of love. The love that you have for your son or daughter can feel different from the love that you have for your parents, or your partner. It is almost impossible to describe. It comes from within and you just have to know it.

The first thing that I need to mention, when developing your psychic skills, is that you need to look at your motive. The question that you need to ask yourself is: ” Why do I want to develop my psychic skills?”

Silver Birch

Silver Birch who was the North American Indian guide of Maurice Barbenel and said through him in trance if you want to develop your psychic/ mediumship ability you must have plenty of patience and be prepared for constant sittings before the power of spirit can express itself. He said that you must look for your own motive. If the motive is to be of service then you can continue. If it is the desire to play with toys, then it is not enough. He said that it is not to please the sensation seeker who desires a new thrill, but the aim is to uplift mankind, and help them along their earthly pathway.

Therefore, you must firstly have the desire to be of service; then make everything that you do with your development come from your heart. Every day, I say to myself that “I do what I love and I love what I do”. If I am in a situation where I don’t love what I am doing, I either stop doing it, or change my attitude towards what I am doing, and start loving it.

One activity that I really enjoy doing is cooking. I love turning a few vegetables into something that looks amazing. When I get asked how on earth did you make that, with just say, a few vegetables, a lump of cheese, some tomatoes, and a few potatoes? I reply “I do not know. I was just inspired, and I don’t know if I will be ever able to do that again”

In spirit

When you are feeling inspired you have somehow moved past the physical plane and something else is working within us. I once listened to a seminar which stated that when we are inspired we are literally in spirit. I also learned from this seminar that when you are feeling inspired that you feel enthusiastic. (A word which comes from the Greek word enthios, which means the God within.) When you feel enthusiastic, everything in your life is working.

Mediumship just means midway between extremes, and a medium or clairvoyant just channels information. I believe that the more love that you are giving out, the easier it is for the information you receive from spirit to flow through you. Negativity of any kind, in my view, prevents development and blocks the flow of spirit communication.

You need to align yourself with the higher power or the God within, so that your mind, body and spirit are all going in the same direction. Your psychic ability should be life to you, and when you feel  in total harmony with yourself and who you are, you will give out the best clairvoyant messages.

Out of these two scenarios, who do you think would have the better chance of developing their clairvoyance?


Works hard in a full time job, is a meat eater, enjoys the occasisional pint down the pub, drinks tea and coffee and meditates everyday. Goes down the gym.


Does some part time work, vegetarian, refuses to drink alcohol, drinks only herbal tea, regularly watches television.

In my view, and my view only, I would say that Jack had the better chance of developing Clairvoyance because he puts effort in to mediating every day. Jack seems relaxed within himself and is a commited person. I do however, believe that if he also adopted some of Fred’s habits as well (like being a vegetarian for example) he could be an even better clairvoyant, as he would be raising his vibration further.

Even if they were both as equally gifted, I would say that Jack’s ability would be sharper, due to the fact he is practicing meditation every day. Just like playing a sport, practice makes perfect. In short, the main quality required for development, in my view, is the meditation, rather than simply drinking herbal tea and no meditation.

Hadyn Clarke, who is a friend of mine and a very gifted psychic artist, developed with Gordon Higginson. He told me that Gordon had told him that to be a good medium he had to:

“Meditate for an hour a day for a week. Have a week off and then meditate for another hour per day for a week and so on.”

Haydn told me that for the first two days he meditated for an hour per day. By the third day he forgot. He then realised Gordon’s point. It was dedication! The hour was not entirely neccassary, but it was the dedication towards committing to the development, which was important.

The process of meditating really is a simple one. I like to sit back in my armchair, close my eyes, put some relaxing music on, and let my mind drift. There are many schools of thought on opening up and shutting down the chakras. Although it is effective, I dont feel for the beginner, it needs to be that complicated. Focussing your mind on something is helpful and taking 10 deep breaths, breathing in and out slowly.

A simple breathing exercise will assist in clearing your mind or any stressful thoughts or worry. The aim is to try and think of nothing as by having a clear mind, clear seeing can begin. I finto visualise a rosebud unfolding in my mind’s eye, see what mental pictures or imagery will come into my mind’s eye. You may find yourself in a beautiful garden. When you have finished, just close the rose bud back up again in your mind’s eye to close down again.

I do recommend the rosebud meditation before I doing readings and it is very helpful. You can ask your guide questions and get symbolical answers back.

For example, if I was taking for a client and they asked the question. “Will my boyfriend call me?”

I could be shown in my mind’s eye a happy feeling of a church bell ringing, a bottle of Bells whisky, a school bell or even a gold ring.

The answer therefore, I would interpret to mean “He will give you a bell, or he will ring you”

Once you get the hang of meditating, I would say it would be useful to join a developing circle with an experienced medium, one who can guide your development. If you can find out where your nearest Spiritualist Church is, they will most likely have a development group, or know of where the nearest one to you is.


As you feel more confident with the messages that you are getting, you will want to have a go, and give out the information that you are getting. The next step is to have a go, and then you are half way there to building your confidence in delivering a message. A developing circle, in my view, is the ideal platform to not only meet like minded people, but also an ideal way to safely perfect your development.

Good Luck! I hope that you found this article helpful. I would welcome any comments, or views on how you are developing your psychic skills.
