How to Tell If You Have Psychic Abilities

Can you feel other people’s energy?

Does the energy of other people affect your energy?

Have you ever foreseen an event?

Do you feel like you have a strong intuition?

If so, you may have psychic abilities.

Psychic abilities are a set of attributes that a person acquires through the practice of psychic development.

These gifts are not limited to a certain age, gender, race, nationality, religion… – anyone can possess them!

Psychic gifts range from having a strong intuition to feeling emotions, seeing things that others cannot, knowing what others are thinking, feeling memories of the past or future, and more.

Why You Should Look Into Developing Your Psychic Gifts

Developing your psychic abilities requires discipline and practice (just like anything you want to get good at!)

Unfortunately, some people ignore the process and end up doing nothing with their psychic gifts.

Others take it seriously and strengthen their abilities.

Some of the reasons why you should consider developing your psychic abilities include:

– Helping people with their problems

– Gaining better insights into your own future

– Connecting with spirit guides or angels

– Possible earning potential in the future (for things like tarot reading, psychic readings, etc.)

It is never too late to develop your psychic gifts and I recommend that you do!


Because in addition to the reasons listed above, developing your gifts can make your daily life easier, improve relationships with people and allow you to help others.

At the same time, it helps to strengthen your relationship with yourself – it brings a sense of peace because you are finally in tune with yourself.

What are the Different Types of Psychic Gifts?

The 5 most common clair abilities are where you should start your journey of discovering your psychic gift.

Here are 5 main clair abilities:

1. Claircognizance

Claircognizance is the ability to sense or perceive things for oneself.

Some people have claimed that this is a lost-in-translation-from-Greek term. It has been said to be translated as “clear knowing”.

Claircognizance can be an indication of deep understanding and insight into a topic or situation.

2. Clairaudience

A clairaudient can receive messages or information through clear, or psychic hearing. It’s considered to be one of the most common types of ESP.

Hearing voices of an unknown origin is often a sign that you’re clairaudient.

You may hear external noises like whispers or other, more distant sounds. These could be coming from higher beings, such as spirits or angels.

It’s also common to hear internal voices, something akin to a specific “inner guidance” giving you direction.

3. Clairsentience

Clairsentience represents the ability to sense/feel other people’s emotions.

Empathetic people can feel other people’s joy, fear, sadness, anger, etc.

If they do not know how to channel other people’s emotions, it can drain their energy.

Their gut always guides people with this ability.

They have strong intuition, and they know how to rely on it. Their gut will warn them if something terrible is about to happen.

4. Clairvoyance

You’ve most likely heard of clairvoyance or “clear vision” before.

Clairvoyance involves mental images/flashes of people or situations that will happen in the future or have occurred in the past.

5. Clairtangency

Clairtangency is also known as “psychometry” and is the ability to receive information through physically touching an object, person, animal, etc.

People who have the gift of clairtangency always possess this gift along with another one of the clairs.

Physical touch is the trigger that allows them to receive psychic information such as claircognizance (clear knowing) or clairvoyance (seeing a vision.)

Do any of these sound familiar to you? If so, it’s worth investigating whether that might be the psychic ability you’ve been blessed with.

How to Develop Your Psychic Abilities

If you’d like to start developing your psychic gifts, here’s where to start:

1. Start a Psychic Journal

A psychic journal is one of the most powerful tools of your psychic development journey. It allows you to keep track of your progress, map out your plans and look back on how far you’ve come.

I have a gorgeous printable Psychic Gifts journal that includes everything you need to start your psychic journey. Learn more about it here.

2. Open Yourself Up to Receiving Messages

You may have been receiving visions or hearing psychic messages for a long time now, but you’ve been ignoring them or writing them off as “coincidences.”

If that’s the case, it’s time to start opening yourself up to receiving messages.

Allow yourself to be receptive and willing to experience and pay attention to what you’re receiving. Write down the messages in your psychic journal and start deciphering what they may mean.

3. Ask The Universe

“Ask and you shall receive” – The Universe.

In order to develop your psychic gifts, you need to put that out to the universe.

The universe has likely been quietly nudging you for quite a while, but you’ve been ignoring these nudges and so perhaps they’ve become less frequent.

If you’ve decided that now’s the time to explore your psychic gifts, ask the universe to start sending you signs and messages throughout the day.

Pay attention to the thoughts that pop into your head and look for signs that the universe is communicating with you, such as the occurrence of angel numbers.

4. Commit Yourself

Like anything in life, developing your psychic abilities requires commitment.

Set aside time each day to practice. Read books related to developing your psychic skills, meditate, and journal regularly.

Have an awareness of the present moment and where you currently are in your journey.

Don’t get dejected or give up if it starts to feel difficult. Instead, take some time to recharge and when you’re ready, pick up where you left off.

Final Thoughts

Many people possess psychic abilities and have either ignored them or written them off as mere coincidences. If you think you may possess psychic or spiritual gifts, it’s never too late to start developing them.
