Through the years I have always felt I had some kind of gut intuition. The ability to know and feel someone’s aura you could say. I was able to tell whether they were someone I wanted to be around or whether they were someone to keep at a distance. Over the past couple years, this ability has increased as I dove into research on Parapsychology and its connection to psychic abilities. Through various attended workshops, I noticed that there was more there than just reading other people’s auras. So, with this said, I wanted to share a couple of the exercises that I use or plan to use in the future to develop and build this ability. I keep a very tight schedule, as do most everyone, so it’s not always feasible to work on things every day, though if you can, that’s great.

The First Exercise

The first is one of my favorites. It focuses on building your extrasensory perceptions of the things around you as you use what is referred to as “the Clairs”. The Clairs include clairvoyance, clairtangency, clairaudience, clairgustance, and clairalience. These focus on seeing, feeling, hearing, smelling & tasting. Not all of these will be experienced at one time, which is why is always a great idea to constantly practice. The practice experiment involves going into a random public place and spending 30 minutes of your day. 

Now first off, I would like to say that it is good practice to always make sure it is a place you are welcomed or have permission to be in. Always be respectful to those around you and the property you are on. Have a seat with your note pad in hand and write down all the things you are feeling. Close your eyes. Are you picking up certain smells? Are certain images coming to your mind? Do you pick up on an energy when you touch an object? What sounds or words do you hear around you? Take note of all of this.  The more you open your mind, the more you will take in, and that normally happens the more you practice this exercise. 

Once completed, the next step is to verify the information you have taken down. Do your own research to validate the findings. One of my favorite places to do research is But there are many other sources online and in public libraries that can provide you with historical information. If you don’t find something right away to back up the things you were feeling, it’s ok. Keep practicing and don’t get discouraged. It’s all about learning and continuing a journey to grow.

The Second Exercise

The second exercise I suggest is one that you can do in the comfort of your own home. In the times of Covid, that’s not always a bad thing. All you need for this one is a deck of playing cards or even a deck of tarot cards. Have a seat at the table or in the floor, whichever makes you the most comfortable. Set the stack of cards in front of you and place your hand on the top card. Close your eyes to focus on what the card on the top of the deck is. See the image in your mind. When you feel confident you have it, flip the card over to see if you are correct.

Will you always get it right? No, you won’t. But this exercise is built to open your mind to feeling and seeing energies and being able to determine the meanings of them. 


The more experience you get with these exercises, the more your abilities will begin to grow. The best way to learn to trust your instincts is through experience and learning to trust the spirit world to guide you in the right direction. It’s always best to trust your intuition, and just because someone else did not experience it, doesn’t mean that it was not real for your experience. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I will continue to share my journey and favorite practice exorcises throughout the journey.
