Can one Become Psychic?
by Deborah Lindsey
General sentiment seems to be that either one is born a psychic or not. And yet, many people feel a calling to do or be a psychic. So the question becomes, is it possible to learn how to be psychic?
I can tell you that I wasn’t “born” a psychic per se. I’m certainly no Edgar Cayce (probably the world’s most famous psychic.) Cayce had “imaginary friends” as a kid. He could also do things like set things on fire if he was mad or have fish just jump into his boat instead of using a fishing rod. He could go into trance and give people readings about their past lives or their health. He was known as “the sleeping prophet.”
No, I didn’t have any of that. But I was always fascinated and interested and WANTED to have those skills. It seemed like such an amazing skill to have.
So in college I was on the speech and debate team. One particular year I was scheduled to give an “informative speech.” For whatever reason, I decided to do a speech on palm reading. So I went to the local library and found a book. There was only one but that was enough. For the next semester I would renew that book over and over and over again as I studied the lines and looked at hands everywhere I went. Over time I began to really get a sense of it.
When the time came to actually give my speech, I couldn’t remember what I was supposed to say so I ended up giving the judge a palm reading instead. When all was said and done I came in last place in my division but the judge said it was one of the most fascinating “speeches” he ever saw. The problem was that I went so far over time that he had no choice but to put me in last place.
Looking back now, I can see that it spawned the seeds of where I am today and the seeds of IMU.
For the next (cough) 30 years, I have continued to study and hone my skills as a palmist. Nowadays I can look at someone’s hands from across the room and know tons about them. Its quite a handy skill to have. (pun intended.) lol.
After that, I went into healing. Now one wouldn’t think that healing work is the same as psychic work, but for me it certainly is. I would find that when I was working on a client, I would start getting all sorts of information about them that I never knew before. This was especially true during EFT sessions where the information became clear as day. Kinesiology was the same way. As I did more and more muscle testing I would begin to know the answer in my head before I ever actually tested the muscle. This, by the way, is common among healers. I am by no means the only one.
So when I started my actual training as a reader, it came quite easily. I already knew how to meditate (a critical skill in development work) and I knew the energy field along with palmistry. Before long I could read tarot cards and use myriad other “development” tools. And eventually tapped into mediumship.
Nowadays, however, I find that I don’t even really need the tools. I’ll start out by reading the palms but then the information comes in so easily it surprises me. This is particularly notable because I was by no means “born a psychic.”
I have come to believe that everyone is born psychic. We all know when we meet someone who is special. We all know when we walk into a room if the energy is friendly or hostile. We’ve all had that experience that we thought about someone and then they called or we knew the phone was going to ring just before it happened. We ALL have it.
So I firmly believe that, with the proper training, ANYONE can become psychic. It is a muscle that you work and hone. And even those who are born with a natural skill need guidance and mentoring to become really great.
This is part of the reason that we developed the Intuitive Arts program at the International Metaphysical University. The program is filled with amazing classes that will allow YOU to hone your skills. These classes include everything from meditation to basic psychic development classes, tarot, and even mediumship. By the time you are done with this training, you will most certainly be able to take your skills out into the world and help people everywhere.
