Everyone has psychic abilities, but for many of us those abilities lie latent in our subconscious and we are not even aware of them. We may visit a psychic and think that the psychic has special powers, when in reality, the psychic has merely fine-tuned capabilities that we all could make use of.
Sometimes events happen in our lives that cause us to recognize the psychic abilities that are just beneath the surface. Often, a traumatic event such as the death of a loved one or an accident can cause our inherent psychic abilities to bubble up to the surface. Other times, we may have a strong interest in psychic phenomena and know instinctively that we must explore it further.
When you start to experience your psychic abilities, you may undergo somewhat of a psychic awakening, and some of the following things may take place:
You may become more sensitive to things that the average person is not aware of.
You may find yourself just knowing things and have no idea how you knew them.

You may hear voices or see things that others don’t see.
You may feel the emotions of others.
You may sense the thoughts of others.
You may think of someone the instant before they call or the instant before you run into them.
You may instinctively know that someone is lying to you.
You may even wonder if you’re crazy.
If you’re experiencing a psychic awakening
While a psychic awakening can be an empowering time in your life, it can also feel a little scary. If this is happening to you, it can be helpful to hear the stories of others who have undergone psychic awakenings. Often professional psychics will tell stories of how they first experienced their abilities, and you may find that their stories are very similar to your own.
If you are undergoing a psychic awakening, read books about psychic development. Check out meetup groups in which people discuss their personal psychic experiences. Visit holistic expos where you can see many psychics and other holistic professionals who are offering their services. You may even want to sign up for a class or two to help you to strengthen your psychic abilities and better control them. Do not listen to cynics and people who say psychic ability does not exist. You know what you are experiencing, and it is important that you nurture yourself and your psychic experiences.
There is one caveat to all of this. Your psychic connection is about love. You will never be guided to hurt yourself or others through your psychic connection. If you have thoughts or hear voices telling you to harm yourself or to harm others, that is not a sign of a psychic awakening. Rather, you should instead contact a medical professional such as a therapist to seek help.
