Working in the Liminal Space: Discover and Grow your Psychic Ability

The idea of being psychic can be intimidating to many people, yet many of us have degrees of psychic ability but aren’t aware of it. We sometimes get glimpses of our abilities when we’re young but write them off as weirdness, coincidence or simply chance. These glimpses are our clues; we can follow them with curiosity to see how we can work with this ability and learn to become comfortable with them instead of brushing them off.

When I was younger my psychic glimpses began to come through in dreamtime. The earliest memories I have of being able to see “through the veil” is during dreaming, when spirits of those who had passed on showed themselves to me. The very first instance of this is when I was around 10 years old. I had just fallen asleep. The dream began with me waking in my bed in the same position I had just closed my eyes in, except that in front of my face a cloud of mist appeared and then a small brown baby face came through that mist. The face looked at me, blinked and then retreated through the clouds as it all disappeared. I woke up an instant later to see that I was still lying in the same position but this time I was really awake.

I got up and ran downstairs where my parents were talking in the basement area that doubled as my mother’s sewing room. I told them about my strange dream and described the baby’s face in detail. My mother’s eyes began to glisten and my father simply said “That was your older sister; that’s what she looked like before she passed away.” My family didn’t have a photo of my sister as she was only alive for a few moments before she passed and they didn’t have a camera on hand. Over time more dreams would come to reveal different spirits, both of loved ones who had passed on as well as deities (I’ve met Pele, Kali, Erzulie and Oshun in this manner as well!).

However, there was a point in my past when I decided to abandon my path for a bit when things got really intense and I didn’t have a mentor or someone in my life to help me navigate what was going on. My mother and grandmother had abilities as well but only used them to a certain extent, so when my grandmother passed I decided to return to the lineage in order to help others realize their own gifts. Returning to this path has proved to be a journey in which I was remembering the things I used to be able to do with ease but relearning them in a way that I could share with others so that they could access their own intuitive abilities.

Here are some approaches for you to try and see how you can begin to access your own abilities:

  • One-Way Communication. This method was introduced to me by my mentor and the theory behind is that in order to create two-way communication, the easiest way to start is with one-way communication using the medium of nature.

 

  • Divination. Approaching divination through the medium of tarot is the first thing that comes to mind but there are other ways that are instantly more accessible. Using a pendulum to ask ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions, using your body to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions and automatic writing are some methods that have less of a learning curve.

 

  • Dreamwork. Using the medium of your dream time is an excellent way to get answers to retrieve information from your subconscious or even a higher source such as your spirit guides or angels. By posing a question as you fall asleep in the form of “I wonder…” or by naming a specific angel you’d like help from, your dream time presents an opportunity to work directly with your subconscious and inner knowing or with a divine presence. Often the responses will come in the dreams that happen around 3-5am or right before wakening.

Try the method that appeals to you the most or you can play with each one to see how they all work for you. There’s really no wrong way to do it as long as you keep an open mind, an air of curiosity and wonder!
