When fictional characters, like Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, train to use their abilities, one of the first things their mentors, such as Yoda, tell them is that they must learn control. This is just as important to us as we use our own metaphysical abilities in the real world.
The first and foremost reason for this is that we have to use any psychic ability given to us for our own good, and that of others. If we use these abilities without mindful intent behind them, or with hostile intent, they can be very counter-productive.
So, how is control learned? An easy way to start is by ridding ourselves of negative influences and objects. As the ancient system of Feng Shui dictates, our environments reflect our internal states. First we must ground ourselves, by connecting our energies with those of the physical and spiritual realms.
Immense power is acquired by assuring yourself in your secret reveries that you were born to control affairs ~ Andrew Carnegie
The same was that it is helpful to get rid of all material things that are unused, or which have negative memories attached, likewise it’s possible to do a mental inventory and empty out parts of our pasts we’d rather forget. These things simply clutter our inner space. If this is difficult, try writing down the memories on paper, then throwing them away or burning them.
Once the ‘decluttering’ is accomplished, we can begin working with our psychic gifts. Think about when you first learned a new skill, such as riding a bike or hitting a ball. No one gets it right the first time. Set small, reasonable goals, to not get discouraged. Keep in mind that there is no right or wrong way to practice your psychic abilities, no matter what they may be. Don’t compare yourself to others. You were given your specific gifts for a reason.
The more specific you can be, when visualizing your intent, the better. This way, your spirit guides and angels are more able to help you. If you like, use a candle, crystal, or other physical object to assist in visualizing intent. Some people also find that a mantra or personal meditation is useful.
A common stumbling block, especially with those just beginning to explore their psychic talents, is that their gifts might be used inadvertently to harm others. For example, a clairvoyant who foresees something ‘bad’ happening to a loved one. Remember as you practice that the universe always intends good things to happen to us. Even something that might seem terrible at first might not be a bad thing in the end. Reassert that you are not intending harm or ill will when you practice. This will reflect back to you, like light passing through a prism.
Appropriate control is a necessary part of psychic practice, and something we can use throughout our lifetime. No one is ever going to be perfect, no matter how hard we try. The best we can do is to ask the universe and our angels to continually improve. This way, we become the spiritual beings we were intended to be. Don’t try to be ‘the best.’ Just be the best person you can be.
