The 4 Most Common Psychic Abilities. Which Ones Do You Have?

Psychic abilities come in many different forms and varieties.  Though it is common for many people to believe that all true psychics must be able to tell everything about the future, psychic ability rarely works this way.  Instead, there are a number of different ways that a people with psychic abilities and intuitive gifts may be able to receive information.

Chances are, you are at least a little bit psychic.  We all have souls, and all have intuition.  It can be something as simple as having a “gut feeling” about something, or knowing somebody will call you right before they do. Though not all of us have highly developed psychic abilities, everyone is hardwired with a sixth sense.  In fact, this may even date back to pre-historic times where it would act as an evolutionary advantage.

Here are 4 of the most common psychic abilities:

1) Claircognizance

Claircognizance translates as “clear knowing.”  Someone with claircognizance will simply know, with certainty, things that that they would have no logical way of knowing.  They often get flashes of insight, such as having a profound feeling that danger is up ahead.

Example: You know for certain that you will have a new job be a certain period of time, or know that you should take a different route than you normally would and end up avoiding a car accident.

2) Clarivoyance

 Clairvoyance translates as “clear seeing.”  A clairvoyant is someone who is able to see intuitive information visually.  A clairvoyant may simply see a number, a symbol, or a name written on a piece of paper.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be anything too complex or dramatic.  But the main ability is that they are able to receive information visually through their minds eye.

Example: You are able to guess if a coin landed on heads or tails at a rate significantly greater than would be expected by chance.

 3) Clairaudience

Clairaudience translates as “clear hearing.”  People with clairaudience receive information by literally hearing it in their head.  They often feel as if there is a little voice telling them what they need to know, kind of like how we can hear our own voices in our head while we are reading.

Example: You receive information about an unseen event or future circumstance audibly, such as “Tuesday you’re going to run into an old friend”.

4) Clairsentience


Clairsentience translates as “clear feeling.”  Those with clairsentience are often times referred to as empaths  or intuitive empaths.  This one is probably the most common psychic ability, as a lot of people can relate to having a strong empathic connection to others.

They can literally feel the emotions of other people, which is not always fun and games. When the people around them have negative emotions, it can be very physically and spiritually draining.  Because intuitive empaths can feel what others are feeling, they are also often highly aware of when people around them are lying or being deceptive.

Example: Someone around you keeps telling you they’re “fine”, when you can feel literally feel that they are sad or angry.

Psychics Vs Mediums

It’s important to note that physics are not mediums.  Psychics are about to receive information around them outside of the 5 senses, where as mediums are able to communicate with spirits who have passed over.  When we hear the word “psychic”, we often think of someone who claims to be a fortune teller, or someone claims to have supernatural abilities that allow them to communicate with deceased relatives.

But the truth is, we all naturally have psychic abilities.  It’s not some New Age concept or a pseudoscientific issue.  It’s simply a matter of looking to the data of our human experience and comparing it with others.  Our souls and biological organisms are hardwired with a 6th sense, and every single person can testify to having at least some instance experience of their own psychic ability.

Which of these four do you have?

5 Common Growing Pains Of A Spiritual Awakening

For those of us who find ourselves travelling on a spiritual path, it can be very common to experience a few “growing pains” on our journey.  Things which hurt beyond belief, but which always result in more clarity, wisdom, and a deeper perspective.  Identifying these common struggles of the spiritual path can be helpful. It makes us realize we are not alone, and that there are certain archetypal energies that all people on a spiritual path end up encountering.

If you are experiencing some of these struggles, have faith. The change you are experiencing is occurring because you are becoming a more authentic and connected person.  The pain you feel is just a temporary catalyst that will propel you into your new self.

As you change, it’s natural to grieve the loss of aspects of your former self.  Don’t be attached to your old identity in your mind.  The key to deal with growing pains on the path to spiritual ascension is to accept the flow as life and to work with reality, not against it.

Here are 5 common growing pains of spiritual ascension we all experience:

1) Losing friends

This one can be especially traumatic for those people.  Becoming more spiritually connected can change a lot about you very quickly, and this can affect some of your closest friendships.  It may cause some of your friends to turn on you, distance themselves from you, and even bully you.

Before hand, perhaps you were willing to engage in behaviors that now just seem wrong to you, such as gossiping, complaining, or competing for the top position in your pack of friends. It’s also likely that the topics you used to discuss with your friends now make you feel empty, and that you now prefer to discuss issues that your friends don’t understand or are uninterested in.  They may even call you crazy for it.

Unfortunately, these differences in perspective and behavior can sometimes be enough to rip apart friendships that have meant a lot to you over the years.  Realize that all you can do is be true to yourself and allow the cards to fall as they may.  You do not have the power to convert anyone to your way of thinking, and you don’t have to.  All you can do is be genuine and sincere, and the universe will connect you with people who are more aligned with your new vibration.

2) Misunderstandings in the family

While most family members are less likely to walk away from you because you are on a spiritual path, they are still quite likely to be confused by your change in perspective.  If you have parents who are religious, they may even accuse you of being lost and separate from God.  Everyone knows that meditation is just another way Satan can whisper in your ear, right?

Stay authentic, and take responsibility for the energy you bring into each conversation.  Just keep being yourself and the “new you” will become more familiar to your loved ones.  In my own journey, my family members actually started to become curious and started asking me questions, and now their minds are so much more open than they used to be. Remember, it’s better to be misunderstood for being who you are than it is to hide yourself for fear of what your family may think.  It’s your life to live, not theirs.

3) Being mocked and ridiculed by society

While many people are on a conscious spiritual path in the world today, there are many who remain in the dark about their true nature. Becoming more spiritually minded can expose you to quite a bit of ridicule for being different.  Being mocked, made fun of, and bullied is just a part of being away in a world that is asleep.  This is probably the most common growing pain of spiritual ascension.

This why you often hear people making jokes about people who eat organic food, meditate, lucid dream, carry gemstones, or talk about spiritual issues and philosophies.  If you were to talk about these things thousands of years ago, crowds would gather in the street and people would be excited to share their experiences. Because of the emotional consequences of not going along with the herd in our day and age, it can be difficult to even come out of the closet with your spiritual beliefs.

The judgement that you may feel from being “out” can be uncomfortable initially, but trust that as time progresses it will become less frequent and easier to deal with.  As we become more comfortable with our differences, we project that comfort out into the world, and we receive less judgement as a result of our confidence.  The universe stops sending us experiences which hit on our weaknesses once we turn them into our strengths.  Stay authentic, sincere, and in integrity.  And when people make fun of you when you are in a space like that, it just makes them look mean and silly.

4) Career changes

When perspective changes, sometimes what worked before just isn’t a good fit for you anymore.  Suddenly, the job that you may have leaned on for many years feels empty, or even worse, damaging to your soul.  During a spiritual awakening, you may come to the realization that your job is not acting as an extension of your soul.

With some, a career change may be intentional and planned out, but with others, it may come in the form of being suddenly fired or laid off.  When you are a vibrational mis-match with how you are spending most of your hours during the week, it’s only a matter of time before either you or your employer decide it is in everyone’s best interest if you leave your job.

It can be very painful to have a sudden transition like this.  But have faith that it happened for a reason. Much more happiness and fulfillment lays ahead for you.  Life is too short to spend anything other than doing what makes your soul come alive.

Surrender to the universe, and it will carry you exactly where you need to be spiritually as well as professionally.

 5) Loneliness

Loneliness is a natural byproduct of spiritual ascension.  Naturally, as our relationships, jobs and lifestyles change, so will our ability to confide in the things we used to confide in.

In times like these, it’s good to reach out to the spiritual community.  Take a yoga class or attend a meditation retreat.  The universe will set you up with new framework to support your new lifestyle, but you have to make an effort to create that for yourself and meet the universe half way.

The good news here is that when you do find people on the same path, you can rest assured that they will provide friendships and acquaintances that are genuine and uplifting, where as before you may have been settling for some relationships that were fueled on competition and negativity.  You may notice you have less friends, but more of the right kind.   An increase in quality, and a decrease in quantity.

In the mean time, practice getting to you yourself.  Start practicing meditation, and learn to be comfortable with being on your own.  Learning how to be alone with about being lonely is essential to dealing with any sense of loss that has arose since you started pursuing your new path.

Although finding your spiritual self can be a fulfilling and enlightening experience, there will be some changes that will be challenging to adjust to.  Not everyone will experience all of these adjustments, but if any of these apply to you, just know you are not alone.  Be patient with the universe, and stay in integrity to the new version of yourself.  The rest will take care of itself.

If you are experiencing spiritual growing pains, realize that at the end of the day they are simply signs that you are growing and evolving.  All of the things that are listed in this article are actually signs that you are on the right track.

So don’t think that you have done anything wrong or that you are making improper choices by adopting a new lifestyle that seems to make people around you confused.  Stay true to yourself and in time, you will mature into a more comfortable and stable position.  When you align your emotions, thoughts, and intentions with bettering yourself and exploring your true nature, the universe always conspires for you to give you the life you need.

Be patient, and trust the universe.  In order to grow into new skin, you have to first shed the old one.

11:11 – What It Means to See These Numbers

If you’ve ever wondered about the significance of these number sequences, you’re not alone. Many people have asked us about their meaning during our angel workshops. So, we went to the Source and asked for guidance to interpret the meanings of repetitive number sequences. As a longtime student of Pythagorean sacred numerology (including a past life as his student) and also an angel channeler, I rapidly received information as to what the angels were conveying through these sequences. Below is a sampling of some number sequences your angels may show to you. Ask for clarification if the numbers’ message is unclear by saying to them silently or aloud, “Please clearly explain so I’ll easily understand.” As with any divination tool, defer to your own inner wisdom as the ultimate authority. In other words, if in doubt, then trust your gut.

“You have guardian angels with you right now — continuously — guaranteed! Your angels guide you through your thoughts, feelings, words, and visions. They also show you signs—that is, things that you see repeatedly with your physical eyes. One of their favorite signs relates to number sequences. These are numerals that you repeatedly see on license plates, phone numbers, clocks, and so on.”

14 Ways To Raise the Vibration Of Your Home

Have you ever walked into a particular home and you read the vibe as comfortable,

1. Clean and give things away

Start out by scanning all the rooms in your home. When you clean and organize everything, by touching and giving all your items attention energetically; you are charging the environment. Look at everything you have and assess what you really need. Are there old objects of all kinds lying around that could be donated and utilized more efficiently by another? Don’t be afraid or feel guilty for letting go, it’s the cycle of life.

2. Burn Incense

Burning different herbs or incense sticks not only creates a wonderful, relaxing smell; it raises the vibration of the space. Everything is made up of different frequencies of energy so when you combine your intent with an action of smudging something like sage, that creates a high level of energy that can translate to feeling calm, happy, simply feeling good from enjoying the smell is a raise in vibration.

3. Decorate!

Make your space an extension of you; who you are, what you like and how you express all of it. What speaks to your soul the most? I absolutely love futuristic, sleek, minimalistic houses that are ultramodern yet still dreamy. At the same time, the old history-holding victorian, creaky wood houses are equally amazing. At my core, I love the colorful tapestries, pink himalayan salt lamps, crystals of all kinds and these classic curtains.  Choose things that you feel represent a part of yourself and express it boldly!

4. Meditate

Meditating or charging the space energetically either through intent or action raises your vibration which ripples out through the environment. When you feel uplifted, excited or even relaxed and blissful; the energy you emit blends with the energy of the space. Everything is connected, our solid, 3D reality is an ever shifting soup of energy when you can see it from that perspective! So meditate; it literally emits light from our bodies.

5. Essential Oils

It’s fun going to the store and smelling all the pungent smells of essential oils. Which ones smell the best to you? Find the smells that evoke a certain memory, feeling or urge to just buy it. Certain smells remind me of my childhood and others I’ve never even heard of! You can get an oil diffuser to get the smell around or just tab some on a cloth and run it along some wood trim in the room. It’s nice to do that around your bed frame.

6. Get Plants

Plants are awesome, beautiful, fun, and make a space look amazing! If you’re able to go out and buy a bunch of beautiful hanging plants, colorful ones and even some seeds for food; do it! They clean the air, plus they are alive and so much more in tune than we realize. Being surrounded by that kind of consciousness is amazing for the vibration of the space.

7. Play Music

What kind of music do you like? Really nice, instrumental music can help keep a vibe a calm but uplifting at the same time. If you were to play rap or metal at a certain time, what would that shift the vibe to? Feel out the energy of the room and match the kind of music that fits the mood. Sometimes fast, upbeat dance music is exactly what a room needs to transform it!

8. Create a Space for Connection

What if your space was the place all your closes friends gathered to connect. This could look like having incredible, transformative talks to just hanging out playing video games. What brings you and your loved ones closer together? If you’re able to create a sacred space of fun, uplifting connection then be the facilitator of growth!

21 Traits of An Awakening Soul

Written by Christina Sarich of

You can say it’s because of a global shift in consciousness, a destiny we have arrived at due to spiritual evolution, or the outcome of strange times, but, many people all across the globe are going through intense personal changes and sensing an expansion of consciousness. Personal changes of this magnitude can be difficult to recognize and to understand, but here are 21 traits of an awakening soul, a ‘sensitive’, or an ‘empath.’

1.  Being in public places is sometimes overwhelming. Since our walls between self and other are dissolving, we haven’t really learned to distinguish between someone else’s energy and our own. If the general mood of the crowd is herd-like or negative, we can feel this acutely, and may feel like retreating into our own private space. When we have recharged our batteries with meditation, spending time in nature, far away from other people, or just sitting in quiet contemplation, we are ready to be with the masses again. In personal relationships, we often will feel someone else’s emotions as our own. It is important to have this higher sense of empathy, but we must learn to allow another person’s emotions while observing them and keeping our empathy, but, realizing that not all emotions belong to us. Social influence can dampen our own innate wisdom.

2.  We know things without having to intellectually figure them out. Often called intuitive awareness, we have ‘a-ha’ moments and insights that can explain some of the most complex theories or phenomenon in the world. Some of the most brilliant minds of our time just ‘know.’ Adepts and sages often were given downloads of information from higher states of consciousness after meditating or being in the presence of a more conscious individual; this is happening for more people with more frequency. As we trust our intuition more often, it grows stronger.  This is a time of ‘thinking’ with our hearts more than our heads. Our guts will no longer be ignored. Our dreams are becoming precognitive and eventually our conscious thoughts will be as well.

3.  Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It commodifies people and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.

4.  Lying to us is nearly impossible. We may not know exactly what truth you are withholding, but we can also tell (with our developing intuition and ESP skills) that something isn’t right. We also know when you have other emotions, pain, love, etc. that you aren’t expressing. You’re an open book to us. We aren’t trained in counter-intelligence, we are just observant and knowing. While we may pick up on physical cues, we can look into your eyes and know what you are feeling.

5.  We may pick up symptoms of your cold, just like men who get morning sickness when their wives are pregnant. Sympathy pains, whether emotional or physical, are something we experience often. We tend to absorb emotion through the solar plexus, considered the place we ‘stomach emotion’ so as we learn to strengthen this chakra center, we may sometimes develop digestive issues. Grounding to the earth can help to re-establish our emotional center. Walking barefoot is a great way to re-ground.

6.  We tend to root for the underdog, those without voices, those who have been beaten down by the matrix, etc. We are very compassionate people, and these marginalized individuals often need more love. People can sense our loving hearts, so complete strangers will often tell us their life stories or approach us with their problems. While we don’t want to be a dumping ground for everyone’s issues, we are also a good ear for those working through their stuff.

7.  If we don’t learn how to set proper boundaries, we can get tired easily from taking on other people’s emotions. Energy Vampires are drawn to us like flies to paper, so we need to be extra vigilant in protecting ourselves at times.

8.  Unfortunately, sensitives or empaths often turn to drug abuse or alcohol to block some of their emotions and to ‘protect’ themselves from feeling the pain of others.

9.  We are all becoming healers. We naturally gravitate toward healing fields, acupuncture, reiki, Qi-Gong, yoga, massage, midwivery, etc. are fields we often find ourselves in. We know that the collective needs to be healed, and so we try our best to offer healing in whatever form we are most drawn to. We also turn away from the ‘traditional’ forms of healing ourselves. Preferring natural foods, herbs, and holistic medicine as ways to cure every ailment.

10.  We see the possibilities before others do. Just like when the church told Copernicus he was wrong, and he stood by his heliocentric theory, we know what the masses refuse to believe. Our minds are light-years ahead.

11.  We are creative. We sing, dance, paint, invent, or write. We have amazing imaginations.

12.  We require more solitude than the average person.

13.  We might get bored easily, but we are really good at entertaining ourselves.

14.  We have a difficult time doing things we don’t want to do or don’t really enjoy. We really do believe life was meant to be an expression of joy. Why waste it doing something you hate? We aren’t lazy, we are discerning.

15.  We are obsessed with bringing the truth to light. Like little children who say, “that’s not fair” we want to right the wrongs of the world, and we believe it often just takes education. We endeavor to explain the unexplainable and find answers to the deep questions of life. We are seekers, in the Campbellian paradigm. ‘The Hero With a Thousand Faces.”

16.  We can’t keep track of time. Our imaginations often get away with us and a day can feel like a minute, a week, a day.

17.  We abhor routine.

18.  We often disagree with authority (for obvious reasons).

19.  We will often be kind, but if you are egotistical or rude, we won’t spend much time with you or find an excuse to not hang out with people who are obsessed with themselves. We don’t ‘get’ people who are insensitive to other people’s feelings or points of view.

20.  We may be vegan or vegetarian because we can sense a certain energy of the food we eat, like if an animal was slaughtered inhumanely. We don’t want to consume negative energy.

21.  We wear our own emotions on our sleeves and have a hard time ‘pretending’ to be happy if we aren’t. We avoid confrontation, But will quietly go about changing the world in ways you can’t even see.

These 21 traits of an awakening soul are a reminder of how important it is to maintain awareness, clarity and strength in these interesting times. If you are experiencing something that is not on this list, please add it to the comments section below.


3-Year-Old Remembers Past Life, Identifies Murderer and Location of Body

Originally posted by By Epoch Times | May 17, 2014

Here’s an interesting one for the day.  Earlier this year, A 3-year-old boy in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel said he was murdered with an axe in his previous life.  Ok, so what?  Children claim to have memories of silly things all the time, and are known for playing with their imaginary friends, right?  But here is where it gets weird.

He then proceeded to show village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough they found a man’s skeleton there.  He also showed the elders where the murder weapon would be found, and upon digging, they did indeed found an axe there.
