For myself, I have
found meditation, chakra alignment, crystals, working with the Akashic
Records, journaling, and studying with experienced
psychics to be the best
tools in developing my intuition

Meditation is vital
because it will center you.  It will help you gain focus and more
importantly help you access certain energy planes that are visible only to
the mind s eye.  As a form of decompressing, it is important to release
blockages.  The art of concentration is experienced in a deep meditation
Meditating on a daily basis surely helps grow that focus and train the
mind.  To this day I use meditation to focus.  Though the amount of time I
meditate has lessened greatly over the years, I always enjoy going back to

A deeper meditation
using the chakras helps open up the third eye.  It also helps in aligning
all your energies together so you can be charged up.   This in turn can be
done with crystals.  There is a lot of information on crystals.  Ultimately
finding one that works best for your meditation is vital. 

Accessing the Akashic
Records requires being centered.  Information perceived and digested into
accurate received messages takes time one must learn to discern between
actual messages versus the mind just rambling of its own accord.  This is
where the bulk of training time takes place.

For this reason I
recommend journaling. Keep a record of all messages, dates, and follow up
information.  It helps to go back to previous notes.  Though you may not
think it beneficial, making errors is important because this is where the
growth process begins. 

Trying to find a
teacher can be tricky.  There s a difference between finding a skilled
practioner versus finding a practioner able to coherently teach the material
so that it reaches the student.  Sometimes one has to go through different
teachers to finally grasp a technique in a way that is right for you.  I
have met psychics that have family members that influenced and mentored
their gifts.  This can be positive, but it can also bring challenges.  I
have always believed that one can t ever be too perfect in a craft.  There
is always room for growth.

Other forms of
divination may pique your interest.  Scrying is one of my favorites. I like
looking into a glass of water to help me read the energy.  Some
psychics are
able to pick up on symbols.  Others enjoy hearing and using their

Personally, I have
developed my use of psychometry.  Just looking and/or holding an object has
developed my psychic abilities over the years.

There are many
wonderful tools available that act as a gateway to enriching and deepening
one s psychic ability.

all forms of
art, there is no
hard and fast rule.  There are many different approaches to
development.  I do believe that consistency, time, concentration, and
dedication will bear results.
