Top 5 Reasons People are Intimidated to use their Psychic Gifts
The assumption here is that you do indeed have the raw psychic talent. You might feel unsure if they do or not. Trust me if you are drawn to read this, you do, you just might not have it all developed. Also, in writing about this, I would like to bring to light the Psychic Maturity Skills. These skills are the deepest level of Psychic Development and usually a piece of the issue when something is in the way of using our natural ability & psychic gifts. Learning just a little bit about them will display some of what it is like to be developing on a psychic level and reveal avenues for self growth.
Reason # 1 – "I am not sure it is real."
This relates to the Psychic Maturity Skills of Permission & Certainty. You need to think of it as “Permission to Have Your Psychic Skills” and your “Psychic Certainty” as your belief that what you are getting for psychic information is real. Just for the record, it is.
Lets use the old “it’s like riding a bike” example. Think of a kid who might learn to ride a bike at 7 yrs old and maybe only has access to ride a bike for a year. Then does not get to ride a bike again until he is 18. He would still feel quite a bit of permission inside himself to have confidence in his skill. Or, at least confidence to try again because he knew he did it before. Also, the fact he had learned it once probably gave him opportunities to ride a friend’s bike over the years. And most definitely he lived in a world where riding a bike was considered a good thing and accepted by almost everyone. So, when the friend made the bike available there would not be the level of hesitation that would be there if say, the kid grew up in a place where riding a bike was considered wacky or suspicious.
You don’t have your Certainty with your psychic gifts because you live in a world where your “bike” is not always acknowledged as normal. And many times your “bike” is looked at as abnormal. Even though God gave you a VERY SHINEY and AWSOME “bike,” you are afraid if you ride it, it might not be accepted in your world. So, you have never learned to ride it properly because you have never been able to “take it out in the daylight” and practice. And there just aren’t as many opportunities given to those in a “bike’s are bad world” to get out there and ride one. So you learned to hide your "bike" (psychic gifts). It really makes sense.
You just need a place where it is safe to get out those “training wheels.” Without the larger culture around you to nurture you along, it is natural that you would feel like it might not be real. Many around you feel that psychic gifts are not o.k. way. I am not dissing our society, it is just the atmosphere many of us have grown up in.
To acknowledge that, we can then stop blaming ourselves or others, for somehow not knowing what to do with our psychic gifts. We begin to see our gifts as a part of us just a tiny bit more. It is a beginning.
When we self blame there is an underlying contempt even, for our ability, and it can really mess with your Psychic Certainty Skill. Developing that skills will bring you to a whole new level of Havingness, which is one of the next skills, that goes hand in hand with Permission to have your gifts. Psychic Havingness is our ability to allow ourselves to have something. To accept it in and receive it. And know that it is an integral part of ourselves. And that our gift is good. And that we are good.
When we can do this. We can more and more clear our space and then our clairvoyance gets more clear. And then our Confidence gets greater. It is a cascade of unpacking all the beliefs in the way. When we do that we can get ourselves out of the way and allow our Psychic Gifts out into the light of day, to shine. Maybe even riding down a hill . . . no hands . . . and no feet. Yeehaa!
So, back to your Psychic Gifts and the question of if it is real. It’s REAL !!
