While it can be exhilarating to get a psychic hit every now and then, the reason we want to enhance our psychic ability is because we want to be able to use it at will. We want to tap into our intuition on the fly to ask if that person who asked us out is worth the time. We want to be able to know the best moment to put our resume out there or call a friend. We want to be able to know instinctively if a loved one is in trouble. Luckily, we can get psychic answers from dreams.
In fact, one of the easiest ways to get psychic answers when we want them is when we are sleeping. That is because when we are asleep our conscious mind is quiet and not bombarding our mental space with judgments and faulty beliefs. You might say the information we get in our dreams is pure.
Many people find that prophetic dreams are their first clue that they are psychic at all, so it’s often helpful to use our dreams to get psychic answers to problems that plague us. Even if you’ve never had a prophetic dream, you can tap your dreams for psychic answers. First, think about a problem or challenge that you want some insight into. Come up with a question. In order to get your psychic juices flowing, you’ve got to have a question that you want to know, even if it’s as simple as, ‘What do I do next?’
Then, try using the following strategies.
Get the proper tools. It is so critical to have a journal or recorder nearby – something to record your dreams when they occur. You might think you’ll remember your dreams, but you can wake up with bits and pieces of a dream in your head and those bits and pieces can be gone in a snap. So many mornings I’ve woken up and known something important was on the edge of my mind but I didn’t have a piece of paper nearby and by the time I found the piece of paper it was simply too late. Don’t take that chance. If you’re going to make the effort to turn to your dreams for psychic answers, take the time to have something ready to record the insights that you get. (Note: You might even remember more of the dream as you record it. Even if you only remember one detail, start writing it down. Sometimes when you write down that one detail, you’ll be prompted with another detail and then another.)

Expect to get an answer. Expectation is so powerful when it comes to psychic ability. If you don’t believe you’ll get any insights, you probably won’t. That’s why people who are confident tend to be more successful. Their confidence causes them to believe that they will succeed some how and then their subconscious and the Universe do the work to make that happen. Set the intention that you will get an answer in your dreams and expect the insight.
Record yourself talking about your problem. Some people respond to information that they hear. If you’re one of these people, try recording yourself talking about your problem on your smartphone. Then, put in some earphones and listen to yourself talking about it and asking questions about it as you fall asleep. With your problem or challenge on your mind as you drift to sleep, your subconscious may continue the conversation providing some helpful answers.
Visualize yourself where you want to be before drifting off to sleep. If you are a visual learner, give your mind something to ponder by visualizing yourself solving your problem before going to sleep. How would you feel when you solved the problem? What would be happening? For example, if your question is ‘how do I get money to pay my bills?’ you might visualize yourself paying the bills. Then, when you fall asleep, your subconscious may take it from there.
Use crystals to help you work with your dreams. There are certain crystals that are known for helping out with dreamwork. Ametrine is good for helping you to interpret our dreams. Amethyst is a good crystal for remembering your dreams. Azurite is known for heightening your intuition during your dreams. Consider buying all three and placing them under your pillow before you go to sleep. Just make sure you clean your crystals first.
If you don’t get any information the first night you try it, don’t give up. Repeat the intention the next night and the next. Try not to get frustrated, and allow the Universe to give you the insight. It will in divine time.
