Five things you can do with psychic abilities that offer deep, life-long benefits

1. Connect with your emotions

The first reason to develop your gifts is that you will gain the ability to be in touch with your feelings. Recognizing your feelings and not discounting them is a good practice because your emotional responses to different situations are often very accurate. Your feelings need to be acknowledged and can be a guide to making decisions.


It is often the case that feelings are dismissed or ignored. The results of not expressing feelings can be depression or negative behavior. Acknowledgment of emotions is a key to good mental and emotional health.

2. Gain insight into events of your life

Visions are about your psychic sight. A vision or an image that may flash before you allow you to get a visual impression of events in your life. A vivid dream or a Deja Vue moment can give you clarity about a past moment or future event. Visions are often insightful or precognitive and can prepare you for an upcoming experience.

Realizing that a vision is a method provided by the Universe to process a situation or prepare for an upcoming event is a smart activity. It is a sign of maturity and wisdom. Visions give detail and clarity either with real-world examples or symbolism that is meant for you to interpret.

3. Learn to listen to the voice in your head

Hearing voices that are not your inner voice can be valuable. Thirdly, paying attention to the “little voice in your head” can be a valuable tool. The voice that you are hearing may not agree with your physical senses and could be a warning to be careful. It is a tool from the Universe that is exclusively human.


Nothing can be more direct than a voice giving you exact direction in life! Ignoring a little or an authoritative voice that you hear internally is a powerful connection with the spiritual dimension. A voice is evidence that you are intimately connected to the Universe.

4. Recognize and use your intuition

Inspiration comes from nowhere and is energizing. Problem-solving with solutions that “drop” into your mind is another reason to tap into your psychic abilities. This is a special gift that appears from no other stimulus other than a problem that you have had trouble solving. It is an “ah ha” moment.

A thought that stops you in your tracks and gives you insight is powerful, but it is only valuable if you act upon it. Original ideas are exhilarating and can give you new energy. Inspiration remains the greatest expression of psychic abilities.


5. Understand otherwise unexplained stimuli

The fifth reason is about receiving aromas and tastes that do not exist with a physical stimulus. These impressions are often not attributed to psychic abilities, but they are valid instances of a psychic event.

The value of these situations can be evaluated by the receiver as a symbol by paying attention to their environment and determining if there are any patterns of events when they appear.

Many people use these senses as their superpower and never share these impressions with others. It may appear socially incorrect to say that something literally “stinks” or that it placed a “bad taste in their mouth” but these impressions are real and special. Learning the symbolic meanings of these sensations takes time but the wise person remembers the results, so they pay attention to them.

How to spot signs and symbols in your life

Each of the psychic senses gives you an edge. They may give you signs and symbols that are for you to interpret. Once you start paying attention you will learn you are integrated into the Universe and that you have a unique place in it.

There is much joy and happiness that you can attain by participating in learning more about your gifts. The gifts are already there but using them does take some effort on your part. You should not be afraid to learn about yourself and the talents you naturally have at your disposal.

Today there are many people promoting empowering techniques to help people live a better life. These techniques assist people in becoming more assertive and confident in life. They are valuable and good but one of the most empowering activities you can do is learn about your psychic gifts.


Developing your psychic gifts is a journey of self-discovery, very rewarding, and expands your consciousness. Understanding you are an antenna gathering information from beyond the physical is a gift that you may be overlooking in your life. Learning about your natural inclinations and limits is a good thing that only requires that you pay attention to them.

These gifts are easily accessed and developed with time, patience, and support from others. Learning to trust is an issue but over time this will come to you. You can learn other self-help skills, but you already have your psychic abilities — so why not use them?
