everyone has something to offer, so it won't hurt to at least listen.

goes for divinatory practices, as well as meditations, groundings, etc.

that suit you and your abilities the best. Versatility is useful and

Frequently Ask Questions
What's happening to me?
Spiritual awakening manifests
itself in many ways. Common signs include: being over-emotional,
head tingling, inexplicable sudden fluctuations in body temperature,

their own pace. Relax and let things flow. Pressuring yourself to
develop will only cause blocks. Also, keep in mind that not everyone is
intended to be a reader or a medium...keep your options open and consider all
the possibilities: personal readers, psychic counselors, mediums, writing
channelers, media psychics, psychic investigators, psychic profilers, teachers,
healers. More importantly, work to use your abilities to grow your own

Everyone is psychic, however,
everyone has strengths and weaknesses in their abilities and not everyone is on
the same time line. Children are exceptionally receptive, but over time
skills that are not nurtured, not recognized, or worse, are ridiculed, usually
end up being blocked out. Those few who 'have been psychic since childhood' have the

adults in their 30's, 40's or 50's even, to suddenly begin their
development. Things happen in the right place and time.
