We all have an intuition some of us just operate on different levels and have different purposes for using our gifts. Having intuitive or psychic abilities is no different from being able to use any other part of our senses. We don’t think about seeing or smelling. We don’t think about tasting something, we just do it naturally. So for someone that is very open to their abilities, it’s an innate process. We retrieve information either through clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear hearing), clairsentience (clear knowing/feeling), clairgustance (clear taste), or clairsalience (clear smelling).

When we are born, we are in our most natural state and our environment has not impacted or influenced us to hide these abilities. Unfortunately depending on how we have adapted to our environment we may have suppressed these abilities so we appear to be “normal.” Someone that is psychic can feel isolated inwardly because not everyone “sees” the world in the way that they do. It was not too long ago that anyone that would show or display their gifts would be considered a “witch” or “evil.” That is not the case at all, in fact we are being as true to our creation as possible.

When we allow our abilities to be used it benefits not only our lives but the lives of others. We retrieve information that helps us develop paths for companies, inventions, next steps, or even warnings. We can see something in advance and determine direction based on the current energy. We only retrieve the information we are “supposed” to get though. The Universe has a code of ethics and will only show you what you need to see or what you need to feel to benefit or help others. We can only help people if they ask for it and allow us to read them. Ethically we cannot just go up and start reading people, that is invasive of their privacy. It should be a mutual agreement between the reader and the sitter.

Sometimes though we pick up information when we may not want to. Imagine going to a grocery store and picking up on different people’s energy around you. That can be quite exhausting. Even when we close down our chakras and are not so wide open, we still are feeling our environment. Depending on where we go or who are around, we may pick up on someone’s health issues and actually begin to feel them to the point where we think they are our own. We can shield ourselves from some of this energy, but that is only for a short amount of time and not something long term. So for someone that is very open and channels information, it is difficult to be in large crowds where there is a lot of energy. It’s difficult to work in offices where you have concentrated energy around you. We have to be mindful of our environment because it impacts us and our health.

For someone that is not aware of their abilities, they may internalize what they feel from others as anxiety, depression, or just poor health. The way to distinguish the difference between your health issues and being impacted by others’ energy is to see if the symptoms go away when you are not around a certain environment or person. Paying attention to what triggers these conditions will help someone with abilities cope or even shield themselves.

Having psychic abilities is like having an internal compass. If someone is using their psychic abilities to help others, then these abilities become an ethical and moral responsibility to those that seek spiritual counsel. We see things in a different way and we see the bigger picture and purpose of others.
