One of the most common things I’ve heard from people who are interested in psychic ability is “how do I become psychic?” The easy answer to that question is that you are already psychic. Everyone has psychic ability. We’re all born with it. However, many of us have been trained to ignore our psychic ability and we don’t recognize our own psychic hunches. For example, we may feel uncomfortable around someone and simply brush the emotion off without paying attention to it. And just as some people seem to be born with more natural athletic ability than others, some people have an easier time getting comfortable with their psychic sides than others.
So while you don’t have to figure out how to become psychic, you can, however, strengthen your psychic ability, and there are a number of ways that you can do that.
You can read books about developing your psychic abilities.
There are plenty of books out there by psychics who are dedicated to teaching others how to strengthen their psychic gifts. Some of my favorites include Laura Day’s Practical Intuition and How to Rule the World from Your Couch. Laura Day has a knack for breaking psychic ability down so that newbies can understand it. She also provides a lot of fun exercises that you can use to practice working with your intuition, and it’s true that practicing is one of the best ways that you can strengthen your psychic abilities.
Another favorite author of mine is Sonia Choquette. Her book Ask Your Guides: Connecting to Your Divine Support System walks you through the process of connecting to your Spirit Guides. We all have them. Sonia Choquette helps you to make use of them.
Finally, Lynn Robinson does a good job of helping you become comfortable with trusting your psychic ability with her book Divine Intuition: Your Inner Guide to Purpose, Peace, and Prosperity. Her book helps you to apply your psychic ability to your life so that you’re not just getting psychic hits; you’re using your psychic ability to make choices that help you manifest the type of life that you want.

You can attend a psychic development workshop.
While reading a book can be informative and enlightening, sometimes it’s more helpful to get training from a professional psychic. Many psychics offer psychic development workshops or coaching, where they help you either one-on-one or in a group setting. Working with a professional psychic allows you to ask questions and talk about any concerns that you have. Many professional psychics talk about how they learned the craft by working with a more experienced psychic. Once you strengthen your abilities, you may even decide that you want to eventually become a professional psychic yourself and do readings for others.
You can set the intention to strengthen your psychic abilities
Another thing you can do is simply set the intention that you will pay more attention to your intuition — and follow it. Every time you act on something your intuition tells you, you strengthen it. So the next time you feel uncomfortable around someone and distance yourself as a result, you’ll be giving your psychic abilities a boost.
