Introverts can have it tough in a world that rewards extroverts. While extroverts feel energized by social situations and can enjoy activities such as networking, self-promotion and even dating, introverts sometimes feel drained by the activities that can help them to get ahead in life. However, when it comes to psychic ability, introverts may have an edge.
One of the hallmarks of being an introvert is the tendency to go within. Introverts like to think about what’s going on in the world around them. They like to revel in their emotions and they often enjoy peace and quiet. An introvert can likely tell you how he or she is feeling, while an extrovert may be so surrounded by external stimuli that he or she is not as self-aware.
As a result of this tendency to go within, introverts are very familiar with their inner states. They may find meditation easier since it gives them an opportunity to recharge themselves. And as they become comfortable with their inner states of balance, they can more easily detect thoughts, emotions, feelings, and other sensations that could indicate a psychic insight.
It’s not so much that introverts are more psychic than extroverts. We all have psychic ability and we have the power to strengthen that ability through exercises and practice, as well as learning about our personal psychic strengths. It’s just that introverts may have an easier time recognizing psychic insights.
Often, people expect a psychic insight to be loud and evident, when in reality, it more often appears as a whisper. In order to recognize a psychic instinct, you must be still enough and quiet enough internally to not only feel, see, sense or hear it, but to understand what, in fact, it is.
Many introverts are also empaths, those who can easily become overwhelmed by the feelings of others. Empathy is a psychic gift since it gives you insight into the emotional states of those around you. Some mediums who are able to communicate with the dead even report sensing the physical pain of someone who has crossed over to the other side. I’ve seen mediums communicate with a client’s dead family member and literally feel the same pain that the person experienced when they passed away.
If you are an introvert, revel in your ability to access your psychic ability. Be proud of the ability to be still and quiet and alone. Marvel at the strength that your inner life provides for you. Pay attention to the times when a thought feels different or you sense a change in the energy around you or even the energy inside of you. While the extrovert can likely work a room better than you, your psychic ability can give you leverage in all aspects of your life — if you use it.
