I used to love Mondays. When my kids were small, Mondays were the days I’d drop them off at school and drive an hour to my psychic mediumship development class.
I worked with this particular group for about a year and a half and learned a lot. My mentor, Terry, had one strict rule… two words that we were never allowed to say when we gave practice readings to each other.
Whether you’re a newbie or about to turn pro, this tip is one you’ll want to incorporate into your readings.
The words are: I THINK
If you are new in your psychic, medium, or tarot journey, start taking notice if you’re using the words “I think” when you:
- give practice readings
- are talking about your intuition
- are doing psychic development exercises.
When I first started in my psychic development, I’d automatically say, “I think such-and-such,” even though I psychically felt or had a knowing about something.
Society teaches us to “think” about everything, so it feels natural to use those words.
Tips to Get Out of Your Thinking Mind
Are you saying “I think” too much when you give readings? It’s COMPLETELY eye opening to be aware of this, isn’t it?
Now that your eyes are open, you can start using the proper lingo. :)
Next time you catch yourself saying “I think” when giving a reading or practicing your psychic development, try some of these phrases instead:
- I feel
- I sense
- I see (if you’re seeing an image)
- I hear (if you’re hearing something via clairaudience)
- This situation feels
Let’s pretend Mary is sitting in her first psychic development circle (you go, Mary!). Her mentor asks her to give her intuitive impressions about the student sitting across from her.
Mary: I think you are a kind person. I also think you like animals.
If I were mentoring the group, I’d gently ask Mary to be aware of her words. I’d ask her to try again:
Mary: I feel that you are a kind person. I have a sense that there are animals around you and I feel that you love them very much.
As Mary continues to practice this new skill of using intuitive language, she will learn to trust what she’s getting more.
And like a ripple on a pond, her gifts will open more. In time, she will begin to “see” how many animals, or what kinds of animals. She may “hear” a pet name, etc.
Eliminating “thinking” in your readings will help you be more trusting
When I was a new intuitive reader, saying the words “I think” used to make me feel safe.
In my mind, if I was thinking, then it was OK to be wrong. Why? Because thinking and being wrong was better than using my gifts and being wrong.
But over a period of many years, I learned that getting my ego and thinking mind out of the work allowed my heart to open.
When your heart opens in this work, several things happen:
- You connect with your spiritual helpers
- You trust the Divine
- You serve your clients for their best and highest good
I lovingly challenge you to stop thinking and start sensing and feeling. Allow your gifts to flourish.
This will help you become more confident about your gifts and touch other souls by working from your heart space.
