Did you have childhood psychic experiences? Do psychic gifts run in your family?

If you answered no, the good news is you don’t need either of these things to grow and enhance your psychic and mediumship abilities. And psychic medium Anthony Mrocka is living proof!

James Van Praagh’s Tips for Intuitive Development

To celebrate his new online school, the James Van Praagh School of Mystical Arts, bestselling author and psychic medium James Van Praagh offered a free webinar called “Playing the Psychic Game With James,” where he shared some tips and techniques to help exercise the psychic muscle and enhance one’s intuition.

He started the session with a brief meditation to bring everyone into the present moment and “get out of the head space and into the heart.” Any time someone is doing psychic work or wants to access his or her intuitive voice, the first step is to work from the heart and not the head, he said.

“If you are in your head, you will judge things and reason things, but when in the heart space you are coming from truth,” Van Praagh told the live audience watching the Google Hangout session, which included viewers form the U.S., Australia, Africa, Spain, Brazil, Russia, China and more.

Prior to the call, he chose three cards (guided by Spirit) from his newly designed deck called “The Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards: a 44-Deck and Guidebook,” specifically for the session. These were: Worry, Trust and Surrender.

“Worry is a wasted emotion. It does nothing except give you the illusion of control,” Van Praagh told the audience. “We have to realize if we put worry on something, and we fear something, it will stop the energy from flowing, and we won’t be able to hear our intuition.”

For Trust, we must accept that our inner voice will always guide us correctly, he continued. Our intuition is our soul’s language, and when we start to use it, we will see how guided we are in the life decisions and choices we must make. And Surrender is about releasing our need for control and having faith.

“You are a soul having this human experience, and as a soul you can do anything,” Van Praagh said, explaining the three cards go together — when we have a situation we often Worry, but we need to Trust and Surrender.

During the Google Hangout, Van Praagh offered a number of opportunities for viewers to hone their intuitive muscles, including holding up a white envelope with a picture inside and asking the audience to intuit who was in the picture, what they looked like, etc., and holding a box and asking them to intuit what object was inside. But first he taught everyone how to “run energy,” to clear the chakras and drop into the heart space.

“It’s like a filtration system where we bring down cosmic light through the top of the head and bring up the earth energy through the feet. Then blend them together and send them out in front of you like a fountain. There is a circulation that happens and you filter out negativity and other people’s energies,” he said.

He offered the following suggestions to practice build one’s intuitive muscle, and encouraged the audience to try it on everything:

— When the phone rings, before looking at the caller ID, try to intuit who is calling.

— If you are going to a new restaurant, try to intuit what it will look like? What will the hostess stand look like? Will the hostess be male or female? What will the people you are going with be wearing, and what type of specials will there be?

— If you are going to a business meeting with people you have never met, intuit how many people will be there, where you will be sitting in the meeting — if it’s a conference room, where will you sit at the table? Who will sit next to you? What do they look like? What color clothes will they wear, and what will their personality be like?

— “I do this with the mail,” said Van Praagh. “If I have an invoice or bill, I try to intuit the amount.”

— Go to a shopping center and start tuning into the energy of the people there to see what you pick up about people.

In his “JVP Psychic and Intuitive Certification Level 1 Course” as part of his new online school, one of the first exercises the course offers is for students to start looking at the world around them as if they have a magnifying glass, and notice what they are feeling, he said. He also recommends sitting in the same space every day and run our energy before sitting in silence and going within our heart.

“The more you start to live your life with a sense of your intuition first, you begin to program yourself to live your life that way, and your intuition will come gangbusters right to the surface,” Van Praagh noted.

Marilyn Alauria: Connecting With Your Guides, Angels & Ascended Masters

We are all born with intuition or what is sometimes called a gut instinct, and with the right tools, we can learn to develop our intuition, which can really help us navigate our lives.

Internationally known psychic medium Marilyn Alauria joined Elevated Existence Magazine founder, Tammy Mastroberte, as part of the “Living an Elevated Existence Mind, Body & Soul Summit,” to explain how we can access our guides, angels and more by balancing the chakras.

“I want everybody on this call to know that whether you feel like you didn’t have gifts at 5, 10 or 15, you can develop gifts at 25, 35 or 75. What you are doing is waking up to your natural essence,” Alauria said on the live call.

She inherited her psychic gifts from her grandmother and has been having psychic experiences since the age of five. When she first began studying and giving readings, she didn’t know a lot about the chakra system or how to open them. But after being introduced to them by her guides, she saw a huge difference in herself and her readings.

“My readings got even stronger, but what also got stronger was my consciousness about myself, and my sitting in my soul got stronger because each chakra really helps us to become one with ourselves,” she explained to listeners.

Each chakra has a gift, whether psychic or emotional, and they are all important because they all effect our consciousness, and our ability to access our intuition and the messages sent to us from our guides, angels, and even our loved ones who have passed.

“Each one has a gift . . . being clairvoyant, which is seeing, or claircognizant, which is knowing, is also about being conscious, and you have to be conscious and awake to recognize the signs your guides, the universe and angels are bringing to you. Unless these chakras are balanced and opened up, you are not seeing it. You’re missing it,” Alauria said.

She also cautioned not to wait for an earth shattering moment from our guides or angels. They often connect with us in subtle ways that at first may seem like a coincidence.

“Your guides are talking to you every day, but we are all expecting a being coming over and shining green lights into our apartment, and our apartment shaking, and it doesn’t work that way all the time,” she noted.

Chakra Gifts
Alauria walked listeners through each chakra and the gifts contained with them on the call, explaining each chakra connects to different guides, angels and ascended masters.

1st Chakra – This is connected with safety, material instincts and living in the world, said Alauria. “When you are psychic you can get very spacy. I used to walk into things, break things and constantly fall, and it’s because I wasn’t grounded. It’s extremely important that you ground into the earth and you feel safe in the work,” she said.

To ground ourselves, we can go outside and put our feet in the grass, touch a tree or eat root vegetables. Also, chocolate and peanut butter are very grounding. For those who work in an office building, simply finding a window and looking outside at a tree to bring the essence of the tree in can ground a person, Alauria shared.

“You can also bring attention to your first chakra and picture a colored light going from first chakra down to the center of mother earth,” she explained on the call. “Allow that colored light to become something very strong like a tree trunk or cement pole, and write a word on it that helps you to feel safe. This can be a name, your animals name or religious name. Fell the end of the pole getting roots and grounding even further.”

2nd Chakra – Representing creativity, Alauria teaches psychic ability runs in alignment with imagination, and many get confused if a message is in their imagination or their guides. “I just say go with it at first because you will learn the difference,” she noted. “You will start learning the energy from your guides versus your imagination.”

3rd Chakra – This is above the navel and is the color yellow. It is where our clairsentience comes from – where our gut instinct or intuition lives.

4th Chakra – The heart chakra is where our empathic abilities come from – or our ability to feel the emotions of others. “It’s picking up people’s energy and emotions and its green,” said Alauria.

5th Chakra – The throat chakra is usually represented by sky blue, and is where our clairaudience or psychic hearing is from. It’s also about speaking our truth to ourselves.

6th Chakra – This is known as the third-eye chakra, and is the color indigo. There is where clairvoyance or seeing comes from.

“We all have it,” she noted. “Our guides speak to us in symbols, and even everything you dream about has a symbolic meaning. If you are out and about, and you keep seeing bees everywhere you go, don’t take for granted it’s bee season. They are there for a reason, and they are communicating something to you. You can go and look up the meaning of bees and see what it is the universe is trying to tell you. For me, bees represent creativity, so maybe you are opening up to creativity. Or you are not living enough in the honey or nectar of life.”

7th Chakra – The crown chakra is white with lavender specks, said Alauria, and connects us with our guides and angels.

Opening & Balancing Chakras
If a chakra is shut down or blocked, we have the ability to work with it and open it back up. Alauria views each chakra as a room with four walls, a ceiling and a floor.

“When working with a particular one, we can wake up in the morning and begin paying attention to it right away,” she said. “If it’s the throat chakra, I would paint the walls of the room or chakra with a light blue color. The throat is clairaudience and thoughts, so I would say pay attention to the thoughts you are having in the morning. You would be amazing what your thoughts are when you first wake up in the morning. Paint the walls blue, and write vibrant words and your name on the walls. You can even vacuum the blocks to get rid of them. If you work with one chakra for three weeks like that, it will start clearing. And the process doesn’t have to take long.”

When it comes to balancing the chakras, Alauria does it every day before her morning meditation. She balances them and releases anything she may be struggling with at the time, which may be keeping her from her true self or her fullest expression of herself, she said.

“I don’t need to know what it is. I’ll say to my guides, ‘Please release me from anything that is keeping me from being the fullest expression of myself, from living in truth, being an authentic medium and really being with my true gift,’” she noted. “I’ll release it and then I open my chakras and balance the energy. I invite the God inside of me and the God outside of me, and all my guides and angels and the light in. I open up into the gifts, and I ask that my consciousness in those gifts open up to the highest level. It takes less then five minutes.”

The energy coming from our angels and guides is infinite, and we can always ask for their help and protection. They are never too busy or unavailable to us, according to Alauria.

“We can’t even understand what their energy is like. Our energy is in containers almost, but they’re not. Their energy can be everywhere at once. So know that their energy can always come in,” she said.

For protection, she calls in Archangel Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, and we can do the same. By surrounding ourselves with their loving energy, we can ask what color we need for protection, and take it around our body, extending out six inches or more until we feel safe and not suffocated, she said.

“There are many ways you can protect yourself, but the main thing is that you always have free will, so if there is some negative energy around you, you have free will to say you will not allow that to effect you,” she noted. “I surround myself with angels, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and God. I ask the archangels to cut the cords of any negative situations attached to me, and I ask Archangel Michael to throw a platinum net around my body to remove anything that got stuck, and to get rid of it.”


Advice From Sonia: Letting Intuition Be the Guide

Learning to listen to our intuition can be the most powerful resource we have to navigate the world around us

By Sonia Choquette

Intuition is your most powerful resource for living at the highest level in today’s modern world, and the greatest inventors, innovators, creative’s, artists and leaders throughout history heartily agree. Steve Jobs relied heavily on intuition to guide him to create Apple, the most successful company in the history of business. Einstein regularly attributed his intuition to the great discoveries he made in life, and Helen Keller said it was the most important sense of all.

Your inner voice protects you. It points you in the direction of opportunity, and leads you toward positive relationships – and away from those that aren’t. It saves you time, connects you with things you need and people who can enhance your life, and it can even protect your health. Intuition can also entertain you along the way, bringing you more joy. It is your internal GPS system, and serves to help you succeed and make life easier in every way. Best of all, it’s natural so everyone has it, including you.

So how can you tap into your intuition today?

Start by taking a few moments every day to breathe in deeply and relax. Notice where you are, what you hear, see, sense and feel, and what is taking your energy. Then turn your full attention inward and become aware of your inner voice. It can be a moment in the shower or just after parking your car at work. You can do it as you wash your hands before dinner or while you wait for the train home from work. It can even be done while folding laundry or watering your plants.

No matter where you are, as you get quiet, breathe in deeply and ask, “What is my intuition trying to tell me today? Or at this moment?” Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t try too hard. There is no need to focus on any particular thing as you do this, unless you want to. Then, once you ask the question, simply listen to your heart, much like you would listen to a dear friend speaking to you on the phone.

It may take a moment or two for the mental chatter of the ego to quiet so you can hear.  Be patient. Relax and breathe as you listen. As you do, also become aware of any gut feelings, bright ideas, flashes, creative impulses or thoughts that may cross your mind. All of these are the calling cards of intuition. It’s important to pay attention, as they arise quickly and leave just as quickly, so practice being aware of their subtlety.

Also know intuitive feelings arise in many forms, and can even vary from day to day. You may hear them in your mind one day. The next day you may feel them, sense them, see them, or simply have a direct feeling as if to say, “I just know.” Or, all of the above.

Pay close attention to these subtle flashes of insight and intuition, in whatever guise they appear. One effective way to get good at this is to acknowledge all intuitive feelings and flashes out loud as they dance across your mind. That way, you capture them before they slip away. As the saying goes, “If you name it, you claim it.”

Once you acknowledge your intuition, allow yourself to fully absorb what your inner voice is saying. Let the message sink in. You will discover the more you give your intuition a valued voice in your life, the more it has to offer, and the better your life will be for it, in every way.
