How to strengthen your psychic ability with psychometry

Psychic ability is like a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it becomes. However, working your psychic muscles can be much more enjoyable than physical exercise. You can make it even more fun by doing psychic development exercises with friends or family members who are also interested in strengthening their psychic ability.

One exercise involves the use of psychometry. Psychometry is the practice of reading the psychic energy contained in an object. Basically, if someone owns an item such as a piece of jewelry and they regularly handle that item, you can pick up on the psychic energy of that person by handling the object. Think about how you can use that type of information in practical ways. You can get insight into what your boyfriend is feeling by picking up his watch. You can get a glimpse into what a colleague is thinking or feeling by picking up a pen off of his desk. 

Often, you’ll hear about psychics using psychometry to try to pick up on information about a missing person. The psychic may handle a necklace or a watch, for example, to try to pick up on information on the location of the owner.

So how can you use psychometry to strengthen your psychic ability? Have a friend bring you an item belonging to someone else, but tell the friend to give you no information about who the item belongs to.  It’s best to use small items that can fit in your hands, such as a key, a piece of jewelry or a hair ornament.

The more relaxed you are, the easier it will be for you to connect with your inherent psychic ability. Sit still and take a few deep breaths. If you know any brief meditation techniques this may be a time to use them.

Once you’re relaxed, pick up the item and hold it in your hands. Focus on what thoughts, vibrations and feelings come up. Don’t sensor yourself or rationalize what your thoughts mean. Instead, you want to allow your thoughts to just come up unfiltered. Record your thoughts as they come either by writing them down, or speaking them into a voice recorder. For some, using a voice recorder is a better method because you don’t have to stop the flow of information to get the information down.

The type of information you may get includes whether the item belongs to a man or woman, the emotional state of the owner or whether the item has been in the hands of many different people.

When you’re finished, share what you picked up with the person who gave you the items. See if the person can verify any of your perceptions. Even if they can’t, trust your intuition. At the very least, this exercise will help you to see how psychic information comes to you. The more you practice it, the more easily you’ll be able to recognize your psychic perceptions in the future. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
