Hi Amy, I’ve posted the answer to your question here, as we’re are all connected and the answer originally intended for you, can also help others…
I love that you write psychic ‘gift’ as if you have only one, you have many and I feel for you especially it’s about dabbling in them all, not favouring one over the other, but beginning to play and strengthen each one, they will bounce off each other grow more easily that way. I see a tidal wave, implying a surging forward on your journey. Does that make sense to you? Maybe even, if you haven’t already, join a spiritual development group where each week you try a different way of connecting in. They are all there for you.
Also, alongside your spiritual / psychic development, also work on your mind. It is time to fade out the doubting thoughts that arise. Everyone has those thoughts and it’s really about whether you choose to listen and have doors close, or you hear them and choose to not listen.
I also see healing work, healing hands. Can you feel energy in your hands? Heat, tingling sensations? They are calling to you! Have you started or looking into Reiki or energy healing? You’ll have fun with this!! Getting into energy healing will also help open your other gifts as it’ll quieten your mind and help you focus, then messages and images etc will arise.
There is one guide in particular that is coming through very strongly. If you don’t know of them already, just invite them in. Start journalling or talking, and see if you can pause – like the pausing between breaths – you’ll ‘hear’ them in the stillness, but not necessarily through words.
When you’re working to increase your gifts, don’t aim for the obvious ones straight away – like seeing spirit or hearing words. Open up to the wonderous ways that spirit connects in, it’s not always so obvious so. There is a book that is important and helpful for you to read however I’m not getting the name. Have you come across a book recently, however not purchased it yet? If that makes sense, or comes to make sense soon – just get the book. Order it online, borrow from the library, or whatever, just know that it is a great tool for you and will help.
Keep your lightheartedness about your psychic / spiritual work, about this whole realm. The world you wish to connect into more is very light, so humour and a lightness of spirit really helps. So often when people delve deeper into this world they are all serious about it, however that lowers your vibration and makes it harder. It’s all about play 🙂
I hope this helps and I’d love to hear back after you’ve read it!
