Making A Psychic Journey
The Swiss psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, believed that life is divided into two stages. In the first stage, we experience and interact with the forces around us; the external reality. In doing this, we learn to define ourselves according to what we are surrounded by. After the age of 35, Jung believed that we turn our attentions inward and start to explore our own subconscious identities in an attempt to complete the jigsaw from all angles. In psychic terms, this is where an individual begins their psychic journey.
Many people’s psychic journeys begin when they realize that there is more to life than just our physical existence. This can be a sense of something ‘missing’ from life or it could even be the discovery of some latent, psychic ability; whatever the catalyst, these people all have one thing in common: the desire to discover more about themselves and, in turn, more about the realms they inhabit.
There are various ways to begin your psychic journey, depending on the approach you prefer and what it is you are seeking to establish. For those who feel that their life is lacking in some respect, the Tarot is a great way to begin exploring the subconscious and mild psychic phenomena, such as intuition and psychic bonding. There are other forms of divination available, but this one falls within most people’s comfort zone and can be the first step on a journey towards self-understanding and inner harmony.
For those who are discovering they have latent abilities, it would be a good idea to identify them first. There is plenty of literature available about the different types of psychic phenomena and researching your own can be a valuable step to take. Once you feel you have worked out what your gift might be, you can research how to develop it or, better still; make contact with a psychic in your area who may be able to offer you advice.
However, the first step for many, to unlock their subconscious selves, is simple meditation. This peaceful exercise can open up your mind and reveal inner thoughts and abilities that you didn’t know you had.
