Psychic awakenings are exciting, energizing – and sometimes fearful. In order to move forward with our abilities, we are challenged to confront our fears.  Following the path to psychic development requires some real study, as well as deep inner work, even for those who are naturally gifted.  You can choose to ignore the signals that you need to learn about what is going on for you, but as I and many others have discovered, eventually your abilities come and get you. An opening is forced upon you, as in this next story:

For as long as I can remember, I have been told by people with abilities of their own that I have psychic abilities.  I never tried to cultivate my powers, but they began making their presence known on their own, I suppose.  I began to have precognitive dreams.  They would usually be nothing extraordinary…just a conversation I was going to have or a page in a book I was going to read, just enough to make me do a double-take.  A few years ago, I went to my first visit to a psychic with some friends.  Again, the psychic informed me that I have abilities, and I told her about my dreams.  She advised me that I have more than just dreams, but I was not willing to open myself up at that time.  I laughed it off, because I was always unsure and afraid of whether I should open myself up (I was always told in church growing up that these kinds of things were evil… something I came to learn that my family did not actually believe later on).  After a few more visits with a few more psychics telling me the same thing and also after learning from my mother that she had family growing up that were involved in white magic (healing), I decided to at least try some things.  I decided to concentrate on the tarot, as I still did not have much faith in my own abilites.  After months of working with books and reading the history and practicing, one night, on a lark, I decided to open myself up rather than rely on anything else and gave a friend a reading.  I felt almost electrical and completely different, but also under that on my way home, I felt something else that I couldn’t describe.  Once I had calmed down, I was going to bed and when I closed my
eyes, all I could see were these swirly, shadowy shapes everywhere.  I became scared and opened my eyes, but they were still there.  The negativity I could feel was unbelievably oppressive and I was extremely frightened and didn’t know what to do.  I just knew that it was not something I wanted to be involved in, and as I had no one else to help me, all I could do was wait it out with the lights on in complete and utter fear, trying to block everything as best as I could.  The books I had read and studied had no information on anything like what I had experienced.  The next day, I gathered everything up and discarded it.  I wanted nothing to do with what I had just experienced.  I closed myself back up as well as I could and tried to go on with my life.  I am now feeling, though, a big push from within to reconnect with my abilites and I don’t know what to do or how I can avoid something like that again.  I, in fact, still have no idea what it was that I experienced.  I was really hoping any of you could shed some light on this and maybe help me decide what to do now.  I apologize for this being so long-winded, but I didn’t know what would be pertinent information for you. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. Carrie

The charge you felt while doing the reading is an indication that you made a strong connection and had opened the channels to other dimensions… but with those openings also come other entities that can travel down and attach themselves to any places in you that are functioning at a lower vibration…  what you missed in your research was the need for some ritual before and after the reading to protect you from such events… the dark energy may have been energy you picked up.  For natural healers, this is normal as part of the reading, for us to take away any dark energy we are exposed to in a reading…

That is why it is important to set the reading up properly with a prayer to call the highest and best energy to you in the moment, and then after the reading, to clear the energy… I go and wash my hands and go to the bathroom as my way of clearing, and I burn a
candle throughout the reading to keep the energy moving off… so, I suggest you follow that inner call…. but first go take a class in meditation and even Reiki and learn how to protect yourself in the work… hope that helps some, Lotsa LLLove, Danielle

  1. I appreciated your comment that “Following the path to psychic development requires some real study, as well as deep inner work, even for those who are naturally gifted.” For me, the meditation disciplines in the Edgar Cayce Study Groups have helped to create protection and a closing after the session. I like your idea of burning a candle to keep the energy moving off. Thanks for the info–a very interesting site.
