Developing Intuitive Gifts

One of the advantages of developing your intuitive gifts (psychic & mediumistic) is that you learn how to recognize messages and signs you are already receiving but may not realize.

Name that tune?

A common way our loved ones in Spirit reach out to us is by sending us a song. All of a sudden we have a song repeating in our mind. People often comment they have a particular song stuck in their head but many do not realize that it could be the very answer they have been seeking.

The song may be one you would connect to a loved one and it is their calling card to let you know they are around. Songs are more effective sometimes because we routinely dismiss random thoughts popping through our mind but will allow and focus upon a song.

For example, on more than one occasion my father has sent the song, “My funny Valentine” to my medium friends who I am with. His name is Valentine.

Let it be?

Alternatively the song could be an answer to a question or a decision you need to make. I often receive the Beatles song, “Let it be” when I have sought guidance about whether to take a particular action. When I receive this song, it is an answer to hold off at this time.

There are many other ways the Spirit world can send messages or use symbols to convey answers to you. Developing your intuitive gifts often enables you to recognize these messages. 

If you’d like to further develop your gifts, consider attending our upcoming psychic mediumship development workshop in July! If a workshop isn’t for you, but you’d like to speak to a psychic, come to our monthly group readings!

Psychic Mediumship 101

Always wanted go see a psychic medium? A little nervous? Perhaps you aren’t sure what to expect? We get a lot of questions about psychic mediums at the Apothecary, so here’s a little psychic mediumship 101 so you know what to expect from a reading.

So, what comes to mind when you hear the word psychic? Somewhere in the recesses of my psyche, an image of a gypsy woman in a head wrap staring into a crystal ball comes to view. Just earlier this week I was walking around New York City and laughed at a sandwich board advertising psychic services including “Chaker Cleansing” (it’s Chakra by the way).

One of our goals at Amityville Apothecary is to take the everyday reality of psychic mediumship out of the spiritual closet and away from the seedy recesses of strip malls and bring it into the light.

Chances are, you’re psychic too! Seriously. Explained on the most basic level. psychic mediumship is the ability to translate energetic frequencies of souls that have crossed over as well as read the frequencies of the Akashic Records (more about the records HERE).

Have you ever had a random thought just pop into your head? Wake up with a song “playing” over and over in your mind? That could be the result of your brain picking up energetic frequency from another realm!

Think of your brain as a filter, not just a human super computer. Just like we need a radio to pick up the frequency of radio waves in order to hear music, our brains can be tuned to receive and translate the energies that are departed loved ones, thoughts and even feelings of others.

Some psychics can actually hear departed love ones. Others see images in their mind and it is up to them to “translate” them. Still others have physical sensations in their body (such as feeling tightness in their chest when connecting to a crossed-over loved one that passed from a heart condition).

Most psychic mediums need to translate the energy they are tapping into (whether they are hearing, feeling or seeing); in order to do so effectively, they may require yes or no validations during their readings. Instead of trying to hold back information to “test” the psychic, confirm what they are translating so they can follow the thought further. By the way, there are different types of psychic mediums- more information on the different kinds can be found HERE.

If you’re looking for specific information from a psychic medium and don’t receive it- don’t be disappointed. Often times you hear the message you are meant to receive. If you receive a message you weren’t expecting or hear from a departed loved one you aren’t expecting, don’t despair! Know that you are receiving what you need, when you need it!

If you’d like to experience a psychic medium, Amityville Apothecary has a monthly group reading. Every attendee is read in a loving environment that is judgment free. Be sure to visit our event page for details on when readings are held, and be sure to check out our other events too!
