Developing Your Psychic Skills
Karen Anna DeMers (Dowdall)
Since this is my first post as a Member of The Sisters of the Fey I will tell you a little about my journey as an empath and other psychic traits. On the Zodiac Chart, I am a Cancer and until recently, I never studied anything about Psychic Skills. We are all born with psychic abilities although some manifest much earlier for some people. Some of my abilities manifested in early childhood.
The Zodiac Chart states that Cancer personalities are emotional, intuitive, and practically psychic, as well as being ruled by the Moon. Cancer personalities also tend to be introverted and I completely fit that description. I find that I need a lot of time alone and I don’t attend large gatherings of any kind at all. I am literally bombarded by information about things I don’t want to know. I have included the URL here so everyone can look at their own chart; I find this chart to be quite inclusive and complete.
As a child I accepted these strange gifts without making much to do about them, because I thought everyone could do as I did. Children quickly learn, as I learned, that adults dismiss any childish talk about ghosts or as I refer to them, Wandering Spirits. I would see many all at once, from different time periods in history according to their style of dress. This development began for me at nine years of age. Waking me up, they would, at 4 am, and I thought I lived in an enchanted world. My identical twin sister would have nothing to do with them and she would hide under the covers of our bed.
OBE’s, Out of Body Experiences, is something I never told my parents about and certainly never about Precognition, meaning to move forward in time or Retrocognition, to move back in time. I recently learned these two words in Judy Hall’s Book of Psychic Development. Who would believe that a child could leave her body, Remote Viewing, and travel to another place, another completely difference way of life, and observe – No one.
I also learned by accident that I could read, feel, see, view many things just by touching objects and that would reveal their amazing history. I, therefore, no longer go to antique sales or antique stores. My cousin and I, when we were in elementary school, would often search the forest where we lived for artifacts. We found quite a few, but that meant experiencing what were often sad and scary visions. This is called, as I am sure everyone knows, Psychometry: the ability to read the retained impressions left on an object. (I had a huge stone collection). We gave the artifacts to the local historical chapter where we lived.
Beside objects, I could often read people in the same way and that is how giving readings to people began when I was much older. This happens when our gifts work together as one psychic skill. It can be very powerful indeed. Something not to take lightly as we learn more about our psychic skills.
Readings can drain away energy very quickly…that will certainly happen without training. For me training came with experience only. This, I learned, can be a dangerous thing to do, because being too open without being grounded causes highly sensitive people to be drained by Energy Vampires and allows questionable elements into your presence.
Being psychic is a natural ability that everyone has, but it can be dangerous without learning how to be grounded and it is essential to learn how to close your Psychic Window when needed. For example, it was just three years ago that I had to close my Psychic Window for a time. Our lovely home was beginning to be filled with many Wandering Spirits, some good and some who liked to play tricks. Others, called Elemental, can be very dangerous and difficult to remove.
We had to move away, and I had to get rid of some antiques as well, that were, no doubt, adding to the problem. I realized that where we lived was a place that had experienced all kinds of trauma that the land still held. The house was brand new, but the land turned out to be a haven for rascal elemental and troubled spirits. Unfortunately, there were no fairies to help me, they had more sense than I did. I don’t blame them either and we left for saver ground. It has now been three years since I have experienced any problems in our new home – nary a Wandering Spirit to be had!
Next month, October 1st
I would like to hear from those that would like to talk about their experiences, and it is important to know where we should begin our study of Psychic Skills. It should be as close to the same level of need for everyone to learn as a group. Also, please share aspects of your Zodiac Chart as that is an important aspect in learning these new skills of a psychic nature.
This photo depicts what is often thought by many people about psychic powers (gifts) and this is not at all what it is like for most people having who are developing their psychic gifts. I will explain why next time we meet October 1, 2019. Have a lovely Labor Day Holiday!
