People like to compare things. “I have better computer than this guy, but that guy has a bigger house”. Comparing skills, like psychic abilities, is also a common practice, unfortunately. So I’ve figured out that it’s worth of mentioning in an article, because I guess some people just got lost. Remember one thing – psychic development is like attending school – if you’re in the 1st grade, you cannot compare yourself to those form 6th grade.
Psychic development is practised during workshops, or practitioner meetings. During such meetings, many people meet, and they have different level of their skills, and each of them has different speed of development. This leads to problematic behaviour.
I’ve noticed a disturbing thing among beginner psychics – they have a tendency to compare themselves to others, to more advanced psychic practitioners. Unfortunately, such a thing isn’t good, comparing yourself to others won’t speed up your psychic development, and it won’t improve your psychic abilities. It will only make you feel bad because you’re not as good as more advanced psychics.
I have few friends who can see using clairvoyance – they’re better than me, more advanced, because they’re more experienced. Their clairvoyance is often “instant”, they rarely need any form of deeper focus or long minutes of relaxation in order to use their psychic abilities. In my case, it takes more time – I need to relax, I need to enter a deeper Alpha state of mind, and I need to use many techniques in order to achieve the same thing they can achieve in a matter of seconds. From relaxation, to Mental Sanctuary, to Clairvoyance Laboratory and a ton of control questions.
If I would keep comparing myself to my advanced friends, I wouldn’t make any progress – but, I’ve learned that we are all different, and although we all have a potential to become psychics, the path and techniques we need to use are different. You can’t just copy and paste the behaviour of other psychics, because their behavior, their abilities and their techniques are based on the very core of their personality. Your personality is different, and although the foundations of psychic abilities is the same, the technique you’re going to use will vary.
I’m Reiki teacher (sorry, I don’t do distant attunements), and among Reiki teachers, I’ve noticed that some teachers feel shame because they don’t know something. They’re being asked a question, to which they do not know the answer. But instead telling the asker they don’t know and will learn and get back to him, they’re making up an answer, because they have a reputation to worry about. After all, they’re master teachers.
I mention this, because you don’t have to be a Reiki teacher, in order to behave in the same way :). Unfortunately, often forgot that it is OK not to know the answer. You’re not omnipotent. It’s OK if you don’t know something. Because the beauty of the world is that you can learn, either by finding a course, or a workshop, or a book, or a website, and learn! It works in every area of our life, from home improvements to quantum physics. We’re not omnipotent entities, but we learn constantly. And this approach works in case of psychic development, as well.
Do not forget that you constantly learn new things, theory, scientific research, spiritual truths and psychic techniques. Also, remember that psychic abilities are like any other skill – you develop them, and development means you begin from scratch; then you become a beginner; then a normal practitioner; then you’re advanced practitioner. If you’ve just started practicing psychic abilities, then there’s no way you’ll be as good as some professional psychics. And you shouldn’t compare yourself to them.
How to be a good psychic student? Below are some tips:
All of this is important, because if you will stick to the rules above, then you won’t feel bad if someone will use “clairvoyance instant”, while you have to spend two or three dozen seconds relaxing and entering your mental laboratory :). And when you will learn this, when you won’t compare yourself to others, and you won’t be ashamed because you’re slower than other psychics, only then you will be a good psychic.
There’s one more thing. How do you act if you’re more advanced psychic than others during the workshop or any kind of psychic meeting? Are you a show off? Do you take pleasure in the fact that you’re better than others? Well, such behaviour must end, because when it comes to psychic abilities, empathy occurs quite often. And others are capable of picking up your negative approach to your development. And it might reflect in a negative way upon their own psychic growth.
