The Double Edged Sword of Being “Psychic”

That “knowing” that so many people desire and chase these days is more than what most people realize they are asking for. It’s not always connecting with someone’s sweet grandmother or exploring haunted buildings on television.

Being psychic doesn’t always come with a nice healthy stroke for your ego. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a few nice pats on the back…

But much of the time in your day to day life, you are given information about things that you cannot change or even share with most. It is just your duty to know, so that you can support those best around you.

Even for myself, I get messages about things to come and most days I meet those messages with resistance and fear.

An impending death, a tragic loss, foundations crumbling to the ground….

And there is nothing I can do to stop it.

I don’t meant to sound like a spiritual cynic - sure, sometimes the future can change and some of these messages are warnings to stop you from falling on your face or to help avoid an unnecessary disaster or accident - but many of them are glimpses into a future only meant to prepare you.

And that is the challenge. Can you accept this truth, knowing what is to come, without self destructing? Can you hunker down, get deeper into your practice and spare what you can from the dreaded tower moment before you’re covered in ash?

Or will you drown in old habits to create an illusion of safety?

Life doesn’t come with a safety net, and neither does the journey into unknown.

Find what keeps you grounded because being psychic is no pedestal. It is a tool to guide those that can trust what they see and deliver the message when necessary, even if it’s devoid of rainbows, unicorns, and social media recognition.

Being grateful is something I have worked into my daily practice because it’s so easy to get lost in the chaos. The gratitude brings me back and I am using it now to say I’m grateful to be able to connect and experience myself flourish with these psychic abilities. But still, it requires work. It requires discernment. It requires presence in your body. It is daily work to receive so much information.

I often have to spend time every day easing my anxieties due to C-PTSD. Working through my trauma is even more important now than ever as this door continues to creep open for me. And this is just one example of how human us spiritual folk are. We all experience these things. That’s what brought many of us into our spiritual journeys to begin with; to seek answers and truth.

But the overall message here is to never put someone on a pedestal above you because of something you perceive in yourself that is lacking. Anyone can be psychic, but not everyone can face their demons in a healthy way, all of the time.

So it’s okay if you decide that the healing that occurs with harnessing these tools is not for you. However, if you’re brave enough to do so…

Well then that’s a completely different blog post…
