Sure, we all have talents and gifts. But without practicing using those talents, do you think we’d be any good?
Me thinks NO.
Think about it. Gifted musicians, artists, athletes, etc. have ALL practiced using their gifts to develop them. Does a little toddler just pick up a guitar and start jammin’? As much as I’d love to see that, I don’t think so.
My son can play guitar by ear. He’s definitely gifted. I have a picture of him at six months old, plucking on a guitar before he could walk. He wasn’t Eddie Van Halen or anything, but he showed an interest — which my husband was thrilled about!
Developing your psychic abilities, reading tarot, and communicating with Spirit is the same way.
Are you gifted? Sure, you are! But you still gotta practice. Even the best athletes practice.
But giving practice readings is KEY to developing your abilities. I mean KEY. Critical. The grand mama of all things you need to do. Mucho importante.
Giving practice readings will:
- Get you used to being in the energy.
- Help you get over fears of giving readings, as you will be getting feedback and validation from your clients.
- Help you learn how YOU receive intuitive information.. for example, maybe you “saw” a butterfly in a reading. Your client was like, “huh, what are you talking about?” Later you realized that you WEREN’T WRONG, you just didn’t understand what a butterfly means to YOU when you are giving a reading. Maybe whenever you see a yellow butterfly in your mind’s eye, you know that your clients dad passed away. You can’t learn these things unless you’re practicing with actual people and getting feedback :)
- Helps you get energy “flowing” easier.
Today, schedule two practice readings. Ask a friend or a friend of a friend. If you’re a newbie, that’s OK. This is just practice. So you might sit there for 10 minutes and only “get” two things. That’s OK.
Next time, maybe you get three or four.
Next time, try it with holding an object (psychometry). Psychometry is like training wheels for psychic readings :)
And if you’ve been developing your gifts for a while, but are scared to give readings because you might be wrong — OH I totally get it! For YEARS I went back and forth debating quitting because I was so nervous.
