Develop Your Psychic Abilities By Sharpening Your Five Senses

The most powerful tools for enhancing your well-being are your five senses. For instance, in the field of medicine today, doctors are still trained to rely on their senses to help diagnose and treat illness. However, for most of us, the hectic pace of our modern life can sometimes drown out our ability to tune in to our bodies. When it comes to developing our psychic abilities, though it involves the use of our 6th sense, we should first be able to fully access and use our five basic senses: seeing, smelling, hearing, touching, and tasting. Here are some simple ways how you can awaken your soul by paying attention to the five senses you were born to use:


Smell can be a powerful sense. In fact, ninety percent of taste is actually smell. So use this sense to the fullest. When sitting down to eat, take a moment to deeply inhale the flavor of your food. Surround yourself with natural aromas from flowers, or buy essential oils you can use, to induce the feeling you want to create. You may use bergamot and peppermint. They have been shown to stimulate your concentration.


Touch is such an amazing sense because of all the different textures and temperatures you can feel. So go outside, and dig your hands into the earth, or snow, or feel the bark of a tree. You can also stroke a pet. Try to gently massage your temples. Try not to let a day go by without getting a hug.


Scientists describe five primary tastes we can identify: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and (most recently) savory. Identify which flavors evoke positive emotions for you, and then turn that taste sensation into a longer ritual. Eat and drink at a slower pace.


Start to get in the habit of really watching the things that bring you joy: a scene in nature, your kids playing, watching a movie you love, etc. Take a closer look at the faces of the people who matter to you. Examine every beautiful wrinkle and mark. To sharpen your eyesight at work, try positioning your computer monitor slightly below eye level. This causes you to open your eyes less, which means less eye strain and dryness.


Hearing pleasant sounds from nature has the ability to bring us instant bliss. Examples are the sounds of a river flowing, the crashing of the waves, and cascading waterfalls, just to name a few. They create a blank slate for the human brain to relax. If you don’t have a sound machine, try listening to what’s closest in nature: leaves rustling, the wind blowing, rain falling, or waves crashing. Turn on some beautiful music while you do your work, and last but not the least, smile. This will ease up the strain on your middle-ear muscles, which in turn softens low-frequency noises such as traffic or ambient conversation. Sharpening your five senses will help you feel more recharged, and better equipped to handle your day-to-day endeavors and concerns. Each day will be lighter, and you will be more open to other possibilities, including developing your dormant psychic abilities.
