Did you know that playing Diablo 2 or some other Blizzard game can teach you a lot about psychic abilities? There is a common thing that connects WarCraft, StarCraft and Diablo games, one thing that is also important in using psychic abilities. This thing called “mana” or “energy”.
So you’re playing Diablo 2 and you want to cast a spell of some sort, or special ability by your character. Each time you cast a spell, you’re loosing points of mana. And when you’re out of mana, you can’t cast new spells and you have to either drink some mana potion, or wait for mana to replenish itself.
If you have practiced psychic abilities for some time now, does it sound familiar to you?
Do you know what I’m talking about when I say that sometimes your psychic abilities just work, and sometimes they don’t? Like yesterday you was able to create powerful psiball, or you managed to perform psychic healing, or your psychic reading was just awesome, but today you can’t do anything at all? What’s the problem? Could the abilities simple dissapear over night?
Nope, they’re still there. But there’s an important thing that most “advanced” energy workers like to forget about – that the energy depletes over time. By using psychic abilities your energies are spent on performing these psychic activities, and the level of fuel is limited.
When you use some special ability of a unit in StarCraft or cast a spell in Warcraft or Diablo, as in the example above, you spend energy/mana points. The more powerful spell, the more mana it costs. In real life, psychic abilities cost energy, therefore with time you might run out of energies.
With time, energies regenerates. Energy body collects energies from surrounding envoirnment and transform them into energies you can use to utilize psychic abilities. That’s why it’s quite useful to take a break from psychic development from time to time, stop using psychic abilities, working with chakras etc.
But often, regeneration rate is too slow. Because of this, it’s good idea to drain energy from other sources like plants, moon, sun, water, earth, elemental energies as well etc. Most people find them very useful sources, but here’s the problem psychic vampires face – as they require specifically vital energies from living people. And they’re great example of how low levels of energies can result in finding psychic abilities… unavailable at the time.
I’m not saying you should drain energies from people if you’re not a psi-vamp (and most definitely I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do this if you ARE psychic vampire :)). But just like in Blizzard games you can use outside sources to regnerate mana, in the real world you can use outside sources to regenerate psychic energies.
Which abilities are the biggest “energy-suckers”? Here’s the list from the biggest to smallest based on my experiences.
Few words about psychic sensitivity – although this ability is passive, if you will run out of energies you will loose your sensitivity, so you will have hard time sensing psychic energies, or picking up information with clairvoyant skills.
Because of all of this, you need to keep in mind – while it’s cool to use psychic abilities, there’s nothing for free, with time you will run out of energies to fuel the skills – and you will either take few days of break, or recharge energy levels artificially.
There are simple way to recharge psychic batteries, and all of them are based on the ability to drain energies from the source of some sort. Most people drain energies all the time – and it’s sufficient for them. But psychics and energy workers have faster energy metabolism due to the fact they’re using psychic skills.
Draining is simple – you expand some of your energy to an object (touch it if you can) that is the source of energies, or you just sit in an area with high concentration of energies. Here are some ideas:
Some places have greater energies than others, simple being in such place recharges your energies. Keep that in mind and remember to recharge your batteries from time to time.
