Maybe you dreamed of a loved one who passed away. Perhaps you knew your friend was pregnant before she told you, or it could be that you’ve begun seeing, hearing, smelling or feeling things quite out of the ordinary.

There is, however, often an unspoken element to our desire to develop our psychic abilities, which is that when we have one of our deliciously freaky experiences, it causes us to feel something.

Connection. Love. Inspiration. Intimacy. Gratitude. Amazement. Awe.

These feelings rush in when you begin to explore what your mind and spirit are capable of.

So if you’re experiencing sadness, loneliness, depression, disconnection… or just the all too familiar feeling of mild frustrated disgruntlement, developing your psychic abilities might be just the novel medicine you need to lift your spirits… so to speak.

So read on to discover 5 definite ways that developing your psychic abilities could help you heal negative emotions.

1. Meditation heals feelings of loneliness and isolation.

A regular meditation practice is vital for developing your psychic abilities. And as you get really good at meditating (and with practice you will), you will come to see yourself and your place in the world differently. It’s really hard to feel lonely and isolated when you realize you’re a Divine and beloved part of all-that-is!

2. All the crap you go through suddenly has a blessed purpose.

When you develop your psychic abilities, you’ll come to have a new appreciation for the drama and trauma in your own life. Whatever crap you go through empowers you to empathize with, and insightfully discuss other people’s crap in a most helpful and enlightening way.

More than once I’ve been glad of my troubles as they’ve enabled me to help others with theirs.

3. Practicing mediumship can help heal sadness and fear.

When you practice mediumship (connecting with people who have passed) long enough, you will arrive at the conclusion that there’s life after death. Your spirit can’t ‘die’ and your loved ones can’t either. Suddenly there’s not that much to be sad about or scared of anymore.

4. Learning how to interpret psychic symbols can help you heal frustration.

Psychic work requires that you become adept at interpreting symbols. This ability is really useful when it comes to how you deal with sources of frustration in your own life. Suddenly you realize that your boyfriend doesn’t leave his towel on the floor to piss you off…and even if he does, maybe it doesn’t matter that much. Congrats! You just interpreted the situation in a new way!

5. Giving a psychic reading that helps someone heal diminishes your own feelings of anger and unforgiveness.

Developing your psychic abilities is a team sport. Your abilities require exercise and will get stronger with practice. One way you can practice is by giving readings to others. When you become repeatedly exposed to the hopes, fears, pain and joy of other people, it puts your own stuff in perspective. Being compassionate towards others in this way is a great antidote for anger and unforgiveness. If you can see intuitively that your subject is trying hard to forgive, perhaps you can too…?

So as much as your psychic development is about your weirdness and your desire to serve others, it can also serve you. Going on a journey of learning intuitive skills and discovering talents and abilities you didn’t know you had will also be a journey of discovering that there’s much about yourself to love and be proud of.
