What does it mean to be psychic?

I get asked a lot about being psychic and how I do it and how other people can do it. What Iíve learned from experience is that anyone can be psychic if they focus enough. Some people come by it more naturally, and being psychic just flows for them. Others have to work harder to develop their gifts. Iím in the latter category. I think a lot of people for whom it doesnít come as easy wish it did come easy, but you have to realize that being psychic is a double-edged sword. Some days, I just donít want to feel other peopleís pain, which is mostly what I feel since pain is a strong emotion that pushes itís way right out there into the world, and most people are in some kind of pain.

There are days when I just have to hide from the world, days when I feel like I can feel all the suffering on the planetÖplants, animals and humans. So you really have to do the groundwork on your energy system so you can handle the emotional information you are going to receive when you open yourself to the thoughts and feelings of others. Most people donít know how to control their energy, so it gets flung out from their aura indiscriminantly. Any emotion you can think of flies out of a personís space and if you happen to be near them, guess what? You get to deal with it. The best way to do so is to stay grounded at all times. Thatís why I harp on people to ground themselves.

Stevo says there are a couple of ways you can deal with someone elseís energy. You can let it bounce off you, as if you are covered with mirrors. Or you can let it pass through you as if you are made of glass. Either way, the trick is to make sure their energy doesnít remain in your space. If it does, ground it out. Sometimes when someone attacks you verbally or physically, itís really hard not to take on their energy. So remember to ground. Another good technique in those situations is the rose technique, which is on my forum. You can also put that person in a pink bubble and send them floating off into space. You can put them in a dodec. There are really so many different ways of dealing with negative energy, you just have to be creative and find what works for you.

Okay, so being psychic doesnít mean I can find your car keys or tell you whatís going to happen to you tomorrow. There are people who can do that but it doesnít happen to be my special gift. I get information, intuitions, and sometimes images. Itís mostly the first two, which I then translate into ďseeingĒ so that I can explain it to other people. I tend to be really good at being able to see and heal chakras. It seems to be my niche, as it were. In the group chats Iím good at finding targets and boosting them and I tend to get a lot of information from the Operators.

Don commented on that recently, and I think I get these hints from the Operators not because Iím special, but because Iím most likely to talk about it. Stevo and Carol are both very articulate but less likely to post. I guess Iím more of a blabbermouth! (As Sundance says to Butch, ďJust naturally blabby, I guess.Ē) I also really like to teach people. In fact, my mom was a teacher for many years and I always thought I would be a teacher but I saw how hard it was for her emotionally and I didnít think I could handle it. I do get mail from people who are in real trouble, just being tortured mentally and emotionally, and itís always hard to deal with because I want to help and sometimes I canít.

This is turning into a long post, but really what I wanted to say was that you can be psychic. You just have to work on your energy system, pay attention to what you do with your energy and focus on the etheric realm. It takes practice if it doesnít come naturally to you. Everyone learns and develops at their own pace. Your higher self will usually slow you down if you are not ready for the next step. I used to get impatient because I wanted to see more and know more, but seeing and knowing carries an awesome responsibility, so you have to make sure you are ready. It is not always fun to see other peopleís pictures, or feel their feelings.
