Do You Want to Get in Touch With Your Inner Psychic and Intuition?

slade1-250x2-ad-air1We all have psychic abilities. Up until about a year and a half ago I thought of psychic abilities as some woo-woo scary fortune-teller like ability. After delving into spirituality I realize I could not have been more wrong. There is a reason psychic abilities and intuition are called “the sixth sense” and it is because it is something we ALL can tap into. I am so very thankful for teachers like Slade Roberson from Shift Your Spirits for the lessons I have learned from him and by applying his methods to my life. Thanks to Slade I am now more in touch with my intuition and psychic abilities than I have ever been and regularly go inside myself to receive the much needed answers and guidance I am seeking. I would like to tell you about my early psychic experiences, what turned me off about psychics and anything super-natural, what got me more interested than ever and how this all relates to healing. I would also like to tell you a bit about Slade’s classes because not only have they changed my day to day life but Slade has become a friend, is someone I deeply respect and is a wonderful teacher.

My Early Experiences

I was born in Brooklyn, NY and at age 6 we moved to Manhattan, NY where I was raised. In Brooklyn when I was really young I had a recurring nightmare. A little girl (I pictured her around age 7) whose head was malformed and tilted all the way to the side would chase and scare my family and I. When we moved to Manhattan I had the dream a few times but it was essentially gone. One afternoon (I was about 9) my mom’s friend was watching me and she asked me to go to the neighbor’s and ask for orange juice. Now, I don’t know if those who have not grown up in NYC have a good idea of what a walk-up tenement building in NYC looks like but everyone is REAL close. There was literally 1 ½ feet between our door and the next door neighbor’s and the staircase leading up and downstairs (we were on the 3rd floor) was about 12 feet away. I opened the door and could essentially leave one leg in my apt and knock if I wanted. I heard someone yell “come on Karen” and turned to look at the staircase. There to my utter disbelief was the SAME EXACT girl from my recurring nightmare. She stopped, stared at me and I ran like hell into my apt. screaming like a mad person and slamming and locking ALL the locks on the door. No, I did not find out what this girl had to do with my life or see her again but the face is still very clear and it was the same girl from my “nightmares”. Would she have come and attacked my whole family – I sincerely doubt it but THAT was my first experience seeing something in a dream and then seeing it in reality.

My second experience happened when I was 12 years old and my best friend liked a guy that lived the building over and he obviously liked her. I had not really talked to him beyond a “hello” and polite conversation at this point nor seen his apartment. He lived in a basement apartment which was very different from any of the other apartments in that building in layout because his family were the superintendents of the place. One night I had a dream I was in his apartment and went from room to room exploring. I thought it was weird and it was very lifelike. Months later when he and my best friend started dating I went to his place and it was EXACTLY as I had envisioned (and there were MANY rooms). Some might call this an out of body experience and while at the time I was actually aware of OBE’s I had never thought I had one before.

My third experience I was about 14-16 years old. My parents had divorced and I was at my dad’s apartment for the weekend. He had strict orders from me – no entering my room before 11AM or you WILL get your head bitten off. 😉 He was very brave one morning and poked his head in at 9:30AM and said he was going down to the East Village to get a rare album he had been looking for and asked if I wanted to join him, otherwise he would be back soon. Something deep (and LOUD) inside me said “go with him”. I don’t know where the message came from but I knew it was strong enough that I could not pretend I did not hear it. I got my lazy butt out of bed and got ready and went with him. When we came back his apartment had been burglarized and ransacked – drawers turned inside out, etc. The room where I was sleeping would not have been visible to people breaking in and I probably would have been sleeping in the room, cornered if they came in. I am very glad I listened to my intuition that day.

In my teen-aged years I was in love with horror films and books. I could not get enough of anything scary. After these 3 experiences happened and since I was going to scary movies all the time, while I saw the benefit of my last experience I still definitely gave myself a message “I do not want to experience anything I cannot explain”. I was afraid and seeing scary movies and reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz books did not help my fears.

rayjenhalloween1Years later we were living in New Jersey and a friend had a Halloween party with a psychic. I was excited. It had been years since I had thought of anything supernatural and was looking forward to getting a reading. I was pregnant, going through my “tired” stages, could not drink and the psychic and seeing everyone’s costumes were the things I was VERY excited about. I was pretty horrified when the psychic told me that my husband would have another woman in his life. Here I was hormonal, pregnant with my second child, could not have a drink (thank goodness — I think I might have gotten ripped after THAT news 😉 ) and I was told at the beginning of a party I had very much been looking forward to. My husband had a reading done and he told me she said the same thing to him and then proceeded to talk with party goers while I repeated the message over and over in my head and fumed. Let me tell you – I did NOT think well of psychics after that and was actually scared if I knew one was in the room that they would tell me something I did not want to hear. I relayed this to my husband after being at an event and being hugely uncomfortable around a psychic 5 YEARS LATER and he asked, “Why?” I said, “you know – because of that horrible time at the party where the psychic told me you’d cheat on me”. He said, “No, Jen – she said there would be another woman in my life, when I told her that was not possible, she asked if my wife was pregnant, when I said yes, she told me we would be having a girl – I told you that”. Ummm – I THINK I would have remembered if that had been the case and had been told that but I won’t go into the he-said/she-said thing here. 😉 I WILL say I was filled with relief even years later and was happy because yes, in fact we did have a girl although at the time of the party I was only about 2 months pregnant and had not had the sonogram which told us that fact. Yes, the picture is from THAT party! On a good note — we did win for best costumes – what did we win? A bottle of wine of course. 😉

So, to say my experiences with anything that “is not easily explained” have been mixed is an under-statement. I knew after I stated I did not want to experience anything that I would not see or experience anything and rarely heard my intuition. In fact I remember one time in my early 20’s I heard that loud booming voice in my head (like when I was at my dad’s place) tell me something and I did the opposite WHICH WAS NOT GOOD! When I began to heal and began to look within I realized that my inner self has abilities I was smothering and holding back. I wanted to give myself permission to delve deeper and see what emerged. I began reading blogs like Shift Your Spirits” by Slade Roberson and my interest definitely deepened. I did not like woo-woo “really out there” stuff and I felt it was a very gradual progression for me. The more I educated myself the more I realized some of the stuff I thought was woo-woo was not. They were things I knew nothing about because I had been scared to “go there”. In talking with someone the other night I said, “why are we scared of other abilities and supernatural experiences – do we believe if we saw an entity it would hurt us? I think most of us would say we are 99% certain we would not be hurt but yet our fear of the unknown and our experiences with scary books, movies, etc heightens that fear”.

ASIDE: I would like to note here that the “ghosts” portrayed in movies, on TV in shows like “Ghost Hunters” are NOT the same as spirit guides and advanced souls as the ones I mention today. Slade describes the difference in his class and that helped me as well to get over my fears of the unknown.

In looking back I agreed with myself (isn’t it great when that happens) 😉 that I was so very grateful my intuition served me that day at my dad’s apartment. I thought if I could get that kind of guidance on a regular basis and even learn how to tap into it, how cool would that be? When I saw The Secret and knew I would heal myself I felt guided to find books and other resources that would help me get to my goal of 100% health faster. I wanted to get that guidance in all parts of my life. There is nothing weird or scary about asking for and wanting help and guidance. In a recent study it was said 70% of Americans believed in angels. (PEW did the study and I have seen it quoted at 68% and 72% so I am safe quoting the middle number) Angels are not scary, nor are our guides, our inner wisdom or our intuition. Thanks to Slade I have learned to tap into inner resources I did not know I had and my life is much better off for it.

Slade Roberson and Slade’s Automatic Intuitive Response Class

sladeSlade Roberson is an ordained minister, intuitive business coach, life coach, a web designer, psychic, marketing expert, Angel Therapist (certified by Doreen Virtue), wonderfully brilliant writer and one of the kindest, funny and most down to Earth people I have ever met. I read his blog, “Shift Your Spirits” for months, making comments here and there before we emailed and began to get to know each other. I considered him so connected spiritually, brilliant and I knew I wanted to learn from him. His classes have taught me so much and becoming a friend and talking with him has truly been a gift to me.

The first and most important head smacking, life changing thing I learned from Slade is that there is more than one type of psychic and way to receive information. This made so much sense to me. There are many different types of psychic abilities and I bet once you read these, most of you will relate to one.

Clairvoyance means seeing clearly. It is taken from the French word that means “clear seeing” and clairvoyance is a common psychic experience. Clairvoyance is an extra sensory ability to perceive distant objects, persons or events which are not visible through the normal senses. This is the one most commonly portrayed in movies and TV yet the rarest of all psychic abilities.

Clairaudience like clairvoyance is made up of two words, clair and audience which together mean “clear hearing”. Clairaudience is the psychic ability by which the psychics can hear those sounds and voices that are not audible to common people.

Clairsentience is a superphysical psychic tool that is used and comes from the French word meaning “clear sensing” and was used popularly in the eighteenth century. It involves the psychic perception of smell, taste, touch, emotions and physical sensations that contribute to an overall psychic and intuitive impression.

ClaircognizantClear Recognition. People often confuse this with clairsentience. This is the ability to know something, no-one tells them and it is not something that they’ve read before, they just simply know it. It is an inner feeling, gut feeling, something which is just known. They have an ability to answer questions and back them up with facts; when before they did not know anything.

Why is it important that I tell you about all of these? Because not everyone receives guidance in the same way and if you are afraid of “seeing stuff” and THAT is why you have not been pursuing delving more into your psychic side – rest assured – you most likely will not.

Part 1 – Talking with Your Spirit Guides

Slade’s course now has two parts that I have taken and is brilliant. Slade is not a woo-woo kind of guy. He gives practical advice on tuning in and getting response and inner guidance. He gives you a 3 part audio program in this first course that helps you tune in and ask questions to your guides. The first part is a lecture telling you how to establish the 4 Intentions for psychic development, The second audio is a 40 minute lecture on how to ask for and receive clairaudient information. He also includes a pdf that gives you instructions for charging your power objects. In the third part he has you attune an item (“the power object”) so you can use it when you ask for help. Is this some kind of witchcraft thing? No, it is your mind’s way of associating this item with WHAT you want to do. This class teaches you how to identify your existing clairaudient intuition, develop your psychic abilities through practical, simple dialoguing techniques, and access divine guidance on a daily basis.

What was MY experience after taking this class? :-) The next day I did as Slade directed and asked my guides for guidance. I was waiting…and waiting… and waiting for some kind of answer and decided it would be better to leave it alone, “let go” of the attachment that I needed an answer to my question THAT MOMENT and take a shower. While in the shower I SUDDENLY KNEW a few words “Write about the Heroes of Healing”. I came out of the shower and was thrilled — ideas started flowing and I was sure to email Slade and tell him, “it worked”. I had asked for advice on how to build my blog by using my talents and passions and that was my reply. Running the Group Writing Project, “Heroes of Healing” brought me close to many writers/bloggers I might have never met, many more readers AND exposed me to a few new teachers that have been integral in my growth. (ie.Gregg Braden). It was a learning experience on many levels and is today still my most proud blogging accomplishment.

Part 2 — Automatic Writing

Automatic Writing is Course #2 in the series of classes on Divine Dialoguing & Communicating with Spirit. In this Slade continues the dialoguing techniques from Talking to Your Spirit Guides and takes them into the realm of open-ended channeling through timed spirit-guided writing. You receive a 35 minute lecture on Automatic Writing, a 27 page digital workbook with lessons and exercises and a bonus of advanced topic on using divination tools in your automatic writing sessions. What I love about Slade is he breaks things down to basics and makes it accessible to everyone. This IS something you will have to practice just like any other skill you would want to learn. Remember you might have been purposefully shutting down these intuitive channels for years — give yourself time and patience to develop them.

What was MY experience after taking the class? I have been using these techniques now for over a month and yes, they work! Slade’s lessons and practice exercises give concise steps to take and take very little time (thank you Slade!). I definitely use these techniques when I am writing. I have always found my best writing came in short bursts of “feeling in the flow” and this class made that easier to access. I still need to be better about writing down questions that come up so I can have more sessions where I am asking for advice on specific areas of my life and that is definitely an intention. I have done this a few times with excellent results and need to set a regular time to do this because the information I have received has been invaluable.

I highly recommend checking out Slade’s Automatic Intuitive Response Classes to learn to tap into your inner guidance system and develop your psychic ability. Thank you Slade, you know you have been instrumental in my spiritual and psychic growth and have become a true friend in the process.

How Getting in Touch with Your Inner Psychic Can Help you Heal

I felt pretty helpless when I was sick. When I began to think about healing as even a possibility I felt guided. It was listening to myself, I mean REALLY listening to myself and determining who was the “me” I wanted to be. I stopped listening to my blow-hard ego and was beginning to become conscious enough to stop and listen to the little voice whispering to me. Those nudges you get that come from deep inside – those are you – the real you. Your intuition will NOT steer you wrong, but can you hear it? Honestly I have never seen my guides/angels/guardians but boy have I witnessed, experienced and just KNOWN things that I never in my wildest dreams expected. My studies, becoming a Reconnective Healing Practitioner and becoming friends with psychics made sure of THAT! (Thank you Slade, Andrea, Akemi, Paula, Anna, Evelyn, Liara and Erin for your friendship, guidance and support — it is so greatly appreciated).

I also have taken a Medical Intuition course by Dr. Judith Orloff called “Becoming an Intuitive Healer, A Professional Development Course for Health Practitioners“. It is a recording of a course Dr. Orloff gave to doctors and healh care professionals and it is brilliant. Medical Intuition is becoming a fast growing field and is being represented in MANY hospitals now. I am a medical intuitive and can sense things, energy blockages and what emotional reasons are behind them when people tell me their physical symptoms. It is something I am getting more and more confident in, and again it amazes me every time. Of course it is easier with any psychic ability to read for other people because when you try to read for yourself you do have those “stories” you have been telling yourself for years and your ego to contend with. Medical Intuition is a whole OTHER post I will write. Tapping into your intuition and learning about what energy blockages are associated with which physical illness manifestations is priceless and there are so many books and resources that can help you do just that.

When you get in touch with this inner guidance system you no longer have to feel alone. You KNOW you have your intuition and guides that “have your back”. You can ask questions when you are “stuck” and can get real advice from within about how to move forward. When you are ill or suffering from emotional or physical pain most of the time you feel alone. You don’t feel like anyone understands “what you are going through” and you certainly can use help although most of us hesitate to ask for help. This is a way you can ask for help at any time and EXPECT to receive it.

We were all given psychic abilities but we were not taught how to use them. Instead we were taught “they were strange” and people who were born with a clear connection to them had to grow up feeling “different”. I feel there is a HUGE benefit to tapping into these resources and am so very grateful I have. Thank you once again Slade, for your friendship and for teaching me how to do this. I hope my readers will think about looking into Slade’s classes and will offer comments and your own experiences. You all know how I LOVE comments! :-)

    You seem to have ability- I think we all do especially as children but they fade over time through non-use. People have prophetic dreams, but do not always do the dream work so they never benefit. As a child I remember two instances where I was being carried to bed from a parent and I could see it from outside my body. I swear it is true. I think you might believe me. :-)

    Hey Jay,
    Of COURSE I believe you. I am pretty open now-a-days. It’s funny I kind of have a mantra — I am open to experiencing new things – but please don’t scare me. 😉 It works as my psychic and spiritual development has been at the perfect speed for me to learn a lot AND not get freaked out.

    Yes, I think children are much more tuned into these occurrences mostly because they haven’t been taught to be afraid of them or block them yet.

    Thanks Jay, for reading and commenting — I love your work with dreams and this is another way I am hoping to open up my intuition and psychic abilities.

    Love, Jenny

    Jen, Thanks for sharing, you have had some dramatic occurrences. It is interesting how differently people’s intuitions manifest. I have always been very open to psychic/intuitive studies, but mine rarely manifests visually in dreams or visions, etc. Instead it is more like when I ask a question and let go, over the next few days I will gradually come into contact with things that provide the answer. Or if I am interacting with someone asking me a question, the same thing will happen…

    Hello Jenny, I enjoyed reading so very very much. Your growing up experiences are indeed interesting. It is obvious that you are highly intuitive.

    I would not have done a better job at introducing Slade’s program. You’ve said it all! What’s great is that Slade comes across as very sincere, helpful and warm in his classes.

    Thank you the link love!! Stumbled and twittered your post!

    I’ve got much faith that you’re going to make a wonderful Reconnective Healing Practitioner.

    All the best to you,

    Thank you I have subscribed to Slade’s blog and I had already listened to an Interview With Judith earlier this week.

    Hi Akemi,

    You have helped many people in many different ways with your Akashic Record Readings, e-book on stopping sugar cravings and on your blog and I know you will continue to do so. I will definitely go check out your work on Lightworker’s Empowerment and Ascension.


  7. says

    Hi Lisa,
    You use your intuition wisely. I look forward to witnessing more people understand that they can do this…. instead of worrying or going over the same issue over and over — they can find the correct question to ask themselves and follow intuitive nudges for the answer. Lisa — that is a VERY important use of your intuition. Thanks so much for sharing and for reading.

    Hi Evelyn,
    I am so glad you liked it and thank you so much for stumble and twitter. Yes, I am a BIG fan of Slade’s classes (in case you couldn’t pick that up! 😉 His sincerity and warmth do shine through in his work.

    I LOVE being a Reconnective Healing Practitioner. It has taught me so much and brought me so much joy and love already. I am excited to have my practice grow and wow is it an amazing gift to witness the healings that occur!

    It was fun to share my experiences and for years I had definitely buried them and my intuition. It feels very powerful to be more in touch with my intuition and I know that connection will only grow the more I practice and work on it.

    Thanks Evelyn, it has been wonderful getting to know you and I always look forward to reading your writing.


  9. says

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you! Your comment definitely made me smile. It’s fun for me to share these experiences and I am very grateful for your support. I feel we can all have amazing experiences when we tap into our psychic abilities and our intuition. It’s not hard to do… it is a sense we ALL have… just requires a bit of practice and trusting yourself and that inner voice. I hope this post encourages some to take the next step in learning how to tune into these powerful powers we all have within.
    Thanks again! :-)

  10. says

    I continue to enjoy reading your posts – thanks for sharing so much of yourself. I can understand why some people think this sort of stuff can be “woo-woo” but like you said, that’s because they have forgotten about that part of themselves and what we don’t know or understand can frighten us.

    I’ve had numerous divine interventions while growing up where I was saved from a certain death or serious injury. I once had a loud voice in my head on the beach that led to a completely different lifepath (new career).

    I’m now at a point where I am envisioning myself going back to school to get a spiritual degree of sorts and am opening my heart to receive intuitive guidance on not only finding the right school but also finding a way to finance it easily and effortlessly – like how I did with my 7 years of different levels of flight training.

    I’m grateful we’ve connected!

    Hi Stephen,

    I am so grateful we have connected too and it has been wonderful to share our journeys and resources.

    That is WONDERFUL that you are so in touch with your intuition and psychic abilities and of course that it has saved and helped you so many times. Financing 7 years of flight school easily is AMAZING. I am sure now that you have put it out there and it is an intention you will receive guidance on what kind of spiritual degree would best serve you and how to finance it. You are so inspirational to me (and many others) and I am very thankful you took the time to read and comment.


  12. says

    Hey Suzie,

    We have shared so many synchronicities lately — hmmm…. let’s use our intuition and figure out what it all means! :-) I love Lorraine’s work and Dr. Orloff’s. Also, (quite obviously) I am a HUGE fan of Slade’s and know you’ll find MANY useful posts on his site. 😉

    It is always a pleasure to see you’ve commented Suzie. Thank you for your continued friendship and support – it is so very greatly appreciated!

    Much love,

  13. says


    I LOVE reading personal stories like this — the different psychic and intuitive experiences people have had… I’m really pleased if my own public discussion inspires others to share.

    One of my earliest psychic memories/ experiences/ when I first became aware of a guardian angelic presence corresponded with my family’s home being robbed as well.

    I really appreciate the effort you attached to introducing my courses to your readers. It’s a really authentic testimonial, definitely from the heart. I am very grateful and couldn’t ask for more.

      Hey Slade,

      I am so happy you like the post Slade. It is so interesting that one of your memories is around a robbery as well.

      You have been such a wonderful teacher and friend. I know your work inspires many to share and also to think about parts of themselves and their life they might have been closed off to before. Getting in touch with these resources is priceless and can allow many people to feel empowered.

      You are awesome Slade — as a person and a teacher and it is my pleasure to introduce your work to my readers. Your classes and writings have had a profound effect on my life. I am very grateful for all you do and for our friendship.

    There is truth to the idea that when a pupil is ready, teachers will present. A teacher is a label for someone on whom you bounce off your energy vibration and begin to decipher meaning for yourself. As you open awareness to details you have always known, you conscioulsy realize you are ready to connect pieces to an apparently disjointed puzzel. What you discover is that the puzzel is not disjointed at all. It is, in fact, a mental exercise you have created in the depths of your consciousness as a path back to truth. Every being is a teacher and also a student. As Rumi aptly said, “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

    Liara/ Jenny,

    I just had to mention that my undergrad degree was in Creative Writing, and my main writing professor/ academic advisor was Coleman Barks — who has achieved a lot of notoriety as the contemporary translator of Rumi.

    There’s a little synchronicity for me between the teaching/ automatic writing connections. And I’m very proud and honored to have known Coleman.

    “woo woo” haha I love it! This is am important post and I am glad you wrote it. I think many people have experiences like this to one degree or another, but write it off. I mean, we are taught that it is “divine” to believe in a man up in the clouds, bit it is hocus pocus to believe it spirits or ritual or faeries or what have you. You are a “coo coo” unless you believe what popular opinion decides is acceptable.
    I have had some of these abilities as a kid, but like many, lost them to a degree as I grew into adulthood. I would even purposely deny them. I would tell it to go away! But over the last 8 years or so I have been trying to work with them. It is not easy to figure out on your own however. Some of those spirits can be little tricksters! lol
    I have what I call my spidey sense…I can feel people from far away, and I can feel things that have not happened yet sometimes. I have recently been working on trusting my intuition and letting go of my habit of needing to use my rational mind for everything. I have also been working on remote viewing…got some interesting results there…I ended up on the moon by accident haha.
    Some day when I attract money into my world I will have to get a copy of Slades course, it looks great! I could use a little direction rather than learning by trial and error.
    But back to the point…these things are very real, and all it takes is to unblock our mind from what we are told is real and not real, right and wrong….Open up and allow yourself to feel and experience, it is so valuable.


    PS I am looking forward to the medical intuition article. It sounds somewhat like Reiki, so I am interested to read more about it!

  17. says

    Hi Liara,
    What you describe is perfect and something I am very aware of and thankful for. By stating WHAT areas of my life I am working on the teachers have continually shown up. It has indeed felt like a connection of puzzle pieces back to a remembrance of truth. Rumi is one of my favorites and that is a beautiful quote Liara – thank you! I am enjoying teaching others and BOY do I love being taught and discovering new abilities I did not even consciously know I had! Thank you for all your support, comments, and posts — they have helped me tremendously and I am very grateful!

    Hi Slade,
    I just pulled out my Rumi books and of course Coleman Barks is the translator — how cool that you knew him. I have Rumi’s “The Guest House” right in front of me at the computer — it is one of my favorite’s of Rumi’s and a GOOD reminder for me to see daily!

    Thanks for sharing Slade — I did know you had the creative writing background and it shows in your wonderful posts. :-) Been QUITE the day and I am happy this came up and got me to get my Rumi books out… a good way to refocus!

    As always, your timing is perfect – thanks Slade and Liara.


    Jenny Mannions last blog post..Do You Want to Get in Touch With Your Inner Psychic and Intuition?

  19. says

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you so much for sharing. Slade also has lots of posts on his blog that I feel you’d find helpful. That is where I began and I learned a lot from there.

    Yes, it is what we are told is acceptable that we find comfort in from an early age. We take in the beliefs of our “tribe” and the movie, “What If?” is GREAT at describing how all these limited beliefs can be looked at. It is interesting to me how we are getting back to real basics – stuff the Egyptians and many other ancient civilizations knew but somehow got taken out of our “regular studies”.

    I love that all this is becoming more known and a big thanks goes to Slade and the other teachers I mentioned for writing publicly about the topics.

    I think you’d like medical intuition. Dr. Orloff’s class is very cool and there are a few medical intuitives on my Heroes of Healing list as well.

    Thanks Mike — I really appreciate your comments and continued support and friendship!

    Hi Jenny – Wow you have had some spooky experiences. I bet you’re glad that you misunderstood that fortune teller.

    I have had a few strange experiences – one where a bad prediction by a fortune teller became true and just little things. I’m planning to blog about one of my experiences too. Like you, I believe we all have psychic capabilities. I think we just need to learn how to tap into them.

  21. says

    Hi Cath!
    How are you?! I am SO glad I misunderstood the fortune teller and although I missed one opportunity to talk to a psychic that I probably would have enjoyed a lot — better it got resolved when it did then 10 years from now! 😉 The timing was pretty good as it was when my interest in this sort of thing was awakened anyway which is what prompted the conversation.

    I would love to hear about your experiences and look forward to reading your post!

    I feel we can all benefit from tapping into these abilities. As I said in the post it makes you feel like you have another resource or something else to tap into so you never feel alone. I was in a pretty bad state this morning; computer issues, behind on work, feeling sorry for myself which got me physically feeling badly (which NEVER happens anymore) and I stopped myself and went within…. Tapped into these resources, figured out WHAT I wanted answers to or guidance on and switched my focus. KNOWING I am putting it out there to my higher self, guides (and whoever else is listening) ;-)calmed me tremendously and I was able to get out of my funk quickly and get productive. I used some of Slade’s methods in automatic writing and I made up for my hour or “poor me” time. :-) I am all for having as many resources as possible – considering we are BORN with these — it seems to make sense that we should use them to their fullest potential. I’m still working on it but having a teacher like Slade definitely helped (helps).

    Thanks so much for commenting Cath!

    Hi there jenny

    So interesting reading about your psychic/intuitive experinces! For me, the experience of guidance is just a simple feeling of knowing whether I want to do something – if I need to make a decision I get in touch with whether I feel expanded or contacted by the alternatives. I’ve practiced a lot an the small things – so bigger things don’t seem very daunting, now.

    Hi Robin,
    Definitely an interesting way to look at guidance Robin. For me lately it has been that I want to do too much and have so many passions I don’t know where to begin or what to “let go of” or “put on hold” for now. I am definitely in “asking for guidance” mode and it is wonderful knowing that it will come as it always does — just by me asking and listening for the answers.

    Always a pleasure Robin. Thanks for leaving a comment. :-)

    Jenny, its curious, at times to seemingly stumble on blogs and teachers you have read about or, who espouse experiences and sensations you notice unfolding within yourself. At the same time, you evolve to realize nothing is curious. You are in a process of evolving from your human thoughts and perception to rediscovering what you are. No such thing as coincidence. Its all synchonicity. You receive confirmations all the time to gauge what track you are on. You may read a book by a particular author, then find yourself reading regular blogs that suddenly discuss the same book or life experience of the author’s peers. This is part of awakening to sense you know where you are now, stages you are at. You relish all magic.

    Hi Jenny,

    I loved reading about your psychic experiences – the one about your dad’s house being burgled sent shivers down my spine.

    It’s good that you mentioned that we all have different psychic gifts. I think that’s really important because I hear from people who give up their psychic development because they don’t realize that there are more gifts than just clairvoyance and clairaudience. I find that loads of people are naturally clairsentient and claircognizant, and for them, the clairaudience and voyance tend to develop later.

    Hi Anna,

    Nice to hear from you! :-) It was great to share my experiences and it seems MANY have had similar experiences or other psychic occurrences.

    Taking Slade’s class helped me so much in realizing I didn’t have to see or hear things to be in tune with my intuition and psychic abilities. I still hope to develop those but my mantra for so long was “I think I am ready but please don’t scare me”… for some reason (too many scary movies) I did associate these things with being “scary”. Now I am wide open and am excited to see what will come.

    It was such a pleasure sharing our gifts Anna. You are a beautiful person through and through and I look forward to talking with you and catching up soon. Good luck with your new living arrangements and this new chapter in your life. :-) I wish you ALL the best!

    Hi Jenny, I enjoyed your story very much and had a good laugh about your as of yet unknown pre-delivery reading of the babies sex. I had a similar experience but was told the opposite, that I would have a new man in my life and thought that meant my husband and I would be seperating which was very unerving until I found that my Son troy was to be the new man in my life :)
    Great article and I will be sure to share your wonderful site with my own readers.

    Hi Jenny,
    I just came across this page and I really enjoyed reading about your personal experiences. There are so many people out there that do not realize what we all have within us. I am sure that what you have written will help others realize that there is more to “psychic abiltiy” than just what we see on TV.

    Hi Tamara,

    Thanks so much for reading and I am so happy you enjoyed it. :-) It is important we all begin to realize we have these abilities that can help guide us and make life “flow” so much easier. It’s a shame the movies and society have made them seem strange but I think with the increase in TV shows and websites about psychic abilities – it is changing slowwwly. 😉

    Nice to have you here – thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Today I made the decision to take Slade’s course you wrote about in this entry. I’m SO excited and it’s nice to hear an affirmation from a student of his!

    All the best,

    This page was both enlightening and empowering. Recently, I have been VERY interested in tapping back into my 6th sense. I know very little about the differences, even though you very clearly explained them, of each type of psychic abilities there are. When I was around the age of 5, my father would play the “memory” game with me with a deck of cards. I never lost. I knew where the cards were before any of them had been turned over. My father recounts that at one point, I looked at him and said “watch this Daddy” and proceeded to turn over every pair in the deck. My father said the hair on the back of his neck stood up and it freaked him out. He called several adult men, uncles and friends of my father’s to come and play against me. Two of them would team up and could not beat me. However, after noticing my father’s reaction and the reaction of uncles and others, I shied away from it. I am now 45 and since that time I have had very few recurrences but, nonetheless, I have had some. A few dreams that turned into reality within days etc. However, it has been years since I have “noticed” anything. My fear is not being able to tap back in and I am finally ready to do so. I have ordered several books, but am not sure if they are the right books for the type I am. Thank you very much for sharing. I have found inspiration in your words.

      Hi Donna,

      So happy you are revisiting your 6th sense!It is something that never leaves us but just as a muscle needs to be exercised for ease of use and to get stronger – so does that sense. I am sure you were drawn to the books that will help you and I wish you all the best for this path. It is one filled with excitement and validation. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing and if I can offer any guidance or service.
