Believing In Your Psychic Self

Question from a reader:

“I have asked you this already when I was wondering how to know when was your mind talking and when your intuition. I finally discovered that I can be receiving a lot of information, but I could be blocking it. My issue is that whenever an image appears in my mind, I feel that I’m inventing or like day dreaming. When I receive information about somebody else I think that I’m only judging that person. It is like I don’t trust myself, I tell myself that everything that comes to me are things made up by me. How can I start believing that what I feel is actually information from them?”

Arusting yourself and the information you’re receiving is one of the hardest things to do when you’re developing your intuitive abilities. That being said, I think your skepticism is a really great sign. Discernment is very important when it comes to these things, and I’d be a lot more worried if you weren’t questioning anything at all!

I think the best advice I can give you here is something that I talked about in my previous blog series on how to contact your spirit guides. It’s easy for us to get so wrapped up in judging ourselves and whether or not we’re right or wrong and that puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on you to make a snap decision about the information you’re receiving.

Instead of feeling as though you need to judge yourself one way or the other, just hold it as a possibility. When you just hold it as a possibility, you’re able to say, “Alright. Let’s just see where this goes.” and there’s no cognitive dissonance associated if it doesn’t pan out, and you don’t run the risk of being gullible. Just roll with it!

Eventually, you will start to collect enough evidence to support when you were correct and it will build your confidence. Not worrying about whether you’re right or wrong allows you to focus on the process itself, observe what it feels like and you’ll begin to learn what feels like intuition and what doesn’t.

Removing your ego from the process is the hardest part, but having a healthy dose of skepticism is a great foundation for discernment.
