Awakening Psychic Abilities
Michelle Young, owner of My Vinyasa Practice, is proud to announce her new Psychic Abilities Course; designed to help you develop your psychic abilities. I started having psychic experiences when I was a small child. When I was around nine years old I started to tap into clairaudience, or the ability to hear information. I grew up in a very spiritual house, and I would meditate for hours at a time as a young girl. Mostly, I spent my time in the woods of Marietta, GA where I would get lost talking to Pure Awareness. Even at six, I was a very spiritual being, and my entire world revolved around communicating with God.
I was brought up in the church, so there were some things that I was not encouraged to practice. My mother noted my connection to the spirit world and reinforced the church’s perspective on psychic energy. When I was nine years old, I was in meditation and I asked if my mother was going to die. I’m not sure why I asked, but I did, and the answer caught me off guard. I heard Pure Awareness tell me that my mother was going to die, and the remarkable thing about it was Pure Awareness was not concerned. There was no polarity in the acknowledgment. I asked if it was going to be soon, and Pure Awareness responded. I was shocked, but not sad or afraid. I went downstairs to tell my mother, who reassured me that it must have been a dream.
I continued to go deep inside the recesses of my mind to explore the uncharted waters of my consciousness. Four years later, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time I didn’t pay much attention. I was awareness in which everything was happening AND I was a 13-year-old girl trying to navigate school, puberty, and life with a terminally ill parent. Several years later, I thought it was the end. My mother had been suffering from cancer for almost two years and right when we thought she had made it into remission her cancer returned.
I remember getting ready for school one day, and I just stopped and looked in the mirror. I asked my reflection if my mother was going to die now, and Pure Awareness revealed that it would be two and a half years. I resigned myself to this news and went back into the Maya, the manifestation of my perception of reality. Two years later, it was no surprise when my mother passed away of metastatic breast cancer.
Twenty-five years later, and thousands of hours of practice, meditation, and facilitation of yogic training brought me to a place where I was ready to teach others to tap into their psychic siddhis. Over the past twenty-five years, I’ve learned a lot about myself, and I’ve developed a very heightened awareness due to an intense and consistent yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practice. In late 2019 I decided that it was time to develop a curriculum to teach others to come to a balanced place, free of projection, where they too could communicate with Universal consciousness and ultimately tap into the psychic powers within the chakras.
Awakening Psychic And Spiritual Awareness
I always knew that we were Divine Beings in a human experience, but I didn’t realize that this simple truth was directly related to our ability to SEE the future. It wasn’t until I started leading Yoga Teacher Training that I realized that our suffering is a direct result of our inability to connect to the truth of our being. We believe that we are separate, and the projected “belief systems” of others cloud our ability to connect and see ourselves as Divinity embodied in an experience.
It’s ok, Pure Awareness doesn’t care if we awaken into our enlightened state of being or not. In fact, Sat Chit Ananda, True Universal Conscious Bliss, is nondual and does not have a preference one way or the other. Yet, we perceive ourselves to be less than, lacking or flawed, incomplete, disconnected or bound by space and time. These are limiting beliefs that are untruths about our experience. When we can identify the projected judgment we can identify the limiting belief and release the attachment we have to it in relation to one’s self-worth.
You may be asking, why are you talking about projection and limiting beliefs? I’m talking about them because they are the reason we feel separate, the reason we suffer, and the reason we can’t see our nose to spite our face. When we’re unattached to the answer to the question we can see exactly what is going to happen without obstruction or our perception coloring our interpretation.
This spiritual path is a solitary path. In fact, the spiritual path is all about the one walking. If you don’t do your work to release your attachments you will not be able to come clean for others. I often joke with friends that the spiritual path is all about YOU. When you do your work, you can truly be of service. If you continue to maintain and further reinforce your attachments to your perception of the world, to your proclivities, or to your fears or desires you will inevitably be at the mercy of others. When we take control of our material, we clear our energy and can see our work, prospects, and path more clearly.
Sights Your Psychic Abilities Are Awakening
As you practice mindfulness, observation without judgment, you will begin to notice a heightened sense of awareness. If you practice yoga, and pranayama, you will find even more clarity. As you awaken into your natural Enlightened state of being (yes, everyone is Enlightened even if they aren’t aware of it), you will start to notice nuances, sensations, intuitive feelings, and you may start hearing and seeing things in your dreams, sleep and even eyes-wide-open state of being.
Continue to do your work, and by that, I mean asking yourself why you perceive things the way you do and why your preferences are the way that they are. Both for good and bad, you have to look at things you have strong feelings towards and things you have mild attachments to. I recently completed our Awakening Psychic Abilities Course and I find it is a wonderful tool for those looking to hone in on their abilities. The course is broken into three sections that walk students through the process of identifying their material to clear energetic blockages. Students are then taught how to balance the Nadis in the body to create the optimum environment for psychic receptivity. Meditations and clearing practices are taught along with grounding and protecting practices to maintain healthy boundaries and spiritual security. Throughout the course, I work with students to help them connect to their psychic intuition in a way that is comfortable and familiar to them based on their lived experience. It truly is a transformational program that offers practitioners tools to find balance and to trust themselves fully.
In these uncertain times, it is so important to have a foundation and the tools to work through the psychic material that is at play in our manifest experience. We are awakening as a collective and to make the most of this time we owe it to the collective consciousness to do our work, tap into our intuition, and trust ourselves so that we can serve the entire community. Taking time to connect with your spiritual experience is not selfish; it’s necessary for our mental health and wellbeing. Follow these simple steps to come home to yourself and start the healing process that will awaken you into your natural state of being.
Integrate grounding practices into your daily routine. Cultivate a relationship with your experience where you feel connected to the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Find grounding practices that you like and that make you feel calm and connected to the earth.
When you find yourself polarized in the preference of privilege ask yourself why. For example, many people don’t have the option to dislike brussel sprouts. If you dislike them, ask yourself why; what did they ever do to you? Maybe they don’t taste good. That’s ok. Can you forgive yourself for buying into the idea that brussel sprouts are “bad” because they aren’t pleasing to you? Can you acknowledge that they are nourishing your body, regardless of taste? You don’t have to eat them, but why “dislike” them? Letting go of our attachments help us to see clearly without our projection.
Clear your energy frequently. I use sage, sound, and salt–the SSS. You can use these too to cleanse the energy in your home, around your aura, and around your property. Sage cleans energy and removes both positive and negative projections. Projection is an energy that can be in the form of thought, emotion, or spirit. Cleansing your aura, home, and environment helps us to remain protected and connected.
