How to Connect to your Spiritual Abilities

I first want to warn that if you have anxiety and depression, you should do shadow work first and foremost before trying to get abilities. You should feel safe and grounded in who you are before trying to get abilities that can feel more disabling to say the least. These abilities can be more confusing and triggering if you aren't solid first. Know Thyself is the most important spiritual practice before all else.

After that, If you are looking to begin the work of psychic and intuitive abilities, then here’s some tips on how to connect with your own power and soul. Everyone has abilities within them, but it takes time and patience to tune into that frequency and activate your souls abilities.

The universe we live in has been polluted with many different energies, making it easier to distract you from a voice that’s been with you long before this world. When you connect to your own energy, and truly listen to yourself, these psychic senses will begin to unravel. There are endless opportunities to improve and train your intuition. Through your psychic senses, you may see, hear, feel, or know information without a seemingly rational explanation.

These senses are often referred to as:

  • Clairvoyance (seeing)

  • Clairaudience (hearing)

  • Clairsentience (feeling)

  • Claircognizance (knowing)

  • Clairalience (smelling)

  • Clairgustance (tasting)

  • Clairtangency (psychometry)

All of these abilities vary depending on the person, but they can all be developed over time.

Cleansing your energy before tapping into your psychic abilities

Before you begin practicing or developing your abilities, you’ll want to take a moment to clear your energy, connect with yourself, and set an intention for your work. Your intuition operates from a different part of your brain than your thoughts or analytical thinking.

Taking a moment to allow your mind to settle and taking a few deep breaths can help you center your energy and bring you closer to your senses.

Setting a clear intention before practicing your psychic abilities that you want only divine truth and love energies to come in is a safe way to start.

Sometimes people will set intentions on what they hope to achieve, but I honestly advice to not have any outcome in mind. Holding onto an outcome can cause the energy of failure to come in, if "Nothing is achieved", according to your ego. Try to have zero expectations, your ego has no idea what abilities are best to come in first, for your highest good and learning.

Here are some tips on how to strengthen your abilities:

Use your breath

Breathing helps to circulate energy in your body as well as relax you. Many Eastern practices like yoga and Tai Chi use the power of breath work to tune into our bodies, develop self-awareness and feel deeper emotions. As you become aware of your breathing, you can begin to become aware of your true essence and connect to your own soul, which is the basis for psychic and intuitive work. Focusing on your breath is also the most simple and effective way to “clear your conscious mind”. Focusing your mind on one thought instead of trying to clear it can be an easier way to get deeper into a meditation. Which inlcudes paying attention to your breathing or a sound in the room instead of focusing on your thoughts. Your breath acts as an anchor.

Breath work is also linked from the lungs to the pineal gland where natural DMT can release into your body.

Keeping your mind clear

It’s important to know the difference between when your mind is involved, and when your Psychic senses are communicating to you. You may have heard that with psychic abilities, usually the first thing that comes to mind is the answer. This is often true because the mind has not yet had a chance to form an impression or interfere. When your mind starts to come up with excuses for why something can not be true or happening, redirect it back to focusing on your breath again.

A good thing to notice is if information that you are receiving feels bad to you then it is your ego or an energy that you dont want to be connected to. So redirect your ego or cleanse your space and start with step one again. If the information you are getting feels loving then you are connecting to divine messages.

Communicating with your spirit guides

Spirit Guides are infinitely loving beings that are in our lives to guide, teach and protect us. Everyone has Spirit Guides regardless of their Spiritual beliefs. Even if you don’t see, hear or feel your guides yet, you do have them. There is not a person on this planet that is alone in their life experience. We are all connected, guided and loved. Your higher self is a more direct link to your life path and purpose. Connecting directly to your higher self will help you discern the best spirit guides to work with, to keep you on your divine path.

Try these exercises to connect with your guides

Sit in a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed and have a notebook and pen. Set the intention to connect to your spirit team, simply ask them to be with you in your own words and speak from your heart. Take note of any changes in how you feel emotionally, physically, and any energy changes in the atmosphere around you. You may see images, feel impressions, or hear clear words and phrases in your mind. After a few moments, thank your guides for being with you. To finish, simply journal about your experience.


Self-development leads to self-awareness. This can be through shadow work, learning and reading more about the divine, or with a therapist to help with the inner work. When developing psychic abilities, we need to examine anything that is making us less of a clear channel. This can be an ongoing process, we don’t need to be completely healed, but our beliefs are going to shape our perception of the psychic impressions that we receive. Our human perceptions are created through our life experiences and traumas, so healing them and doing this inner work to better Know Thyself actually is the best and fastest way to connect you to the divine.

Find a community where you feel safe and comfortable to practice, ask questions, and share your own experiences. Receiving help and advice from others can lead you to find what works best for you. What works for one doesn't always work for all.

Affirmations can be a great way to help you to connect with psychic abilities and feel empowered. Affirmations can be used to reprogram the subconscious mind, to empower us to shift our thoughts and create the reality we desire. Try writing or speaking one of the following phrases or create your own:

  • “I trust the power of my psychic senses”

  • “Everyday I am moving closer to the truth of who I am”

  • “I am always guided by my inner wisdom”

Crystals to use

Psychic powers have not been accepted or praised in the past, throughout history people have been persecuted or feared for working with psychic senses and divination. Reclaiming your power should be celebrated, not feared. There is, after all, great power in connecting deeply with yourself, your inner wisdom, and the divine.
