I’m obsessed with Theresa Caputo. You know her right? She’s the Long Island Medium who gives readings everywhere she goes. She connects with loved ones from the other side of random strangers and feels compelled to help. It’s actually a beautiful thing and I don’t judge—she’s living her purpose and raising the consciousness of our world and I applaud that.
We all have psychic abilities. It’s completely natural, but we don’t have to be tuned in all the time. It’s one thing to be connected to your higher self and get intuitive hits, but it’s a completely other thing to pick up on the thoughts, emotions, and loved ones of other people unintentionally. I think it really comes down to having healthy boundaries and the more psychic we become, the easier it is to having these kinds of experiences. You might find yourself wanting to turn things off (or at least turn them down).
Here are some tips on how to turn off your psychic abilities:
- Keep Your Chakras In Balance. When you work with your psychic abilities, you are utilizing certain chakras—mainly those upper ones (throat, third eye, and crown). Often times, New Agers have a tendency to have these ones very active while the lower ones are very inactive. This kind of thing can be very unhealthy and have energetic consequences.
- Set Clear Energetic Boundaries. The best way I know to do this is to set a clear intention of what is and what isn’t allowed in your aura. My favorite affirmation is “I close off my aura to all but my own higher self and beings of the highest vibration who are with me at the choice of my soul.”
- Have “Non-Psychic” Time. Having a strong sense of intuition is a good thing. What’s not good is losing your humanity. When you’re doing psychic work, do psychic work, otherwise, try to keep it separated.
- Develop Discernment. Please don’t believe everything you hear. Trust your own inner authority. As one of our readers, Allen, commented yesterday: “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” — The Buddha
