One of the more frequent questions I receive from my clients is if they have spiritual abilities, or if they are even real. They want to know which ones, or the signs around them, or how they can develop them. These are great questions, and I feel at least once in all of our lives we have sat and imagined having awesome powers. The fact is spiritual abilities or gifts are very real. They do exist, and there are many different types of them.
In this article today I want to talk about some special abilities, along with signs you may have them and provide methods of developing them. I will also include a few client examples. Some of my clients are very powerful people with hidden gifts. Some of their gifts are already opening up, and others want to know how to turn them off. I hope you find this post beneficial, interesting and most of all enlightening. We all experience different things in life, and sometimes it is important to know that you are not alone. There are other people out there going through the same things, and we can all help each other by sharing experiences, along with how we got through them.
I want to first start out by giving my definition of a spiritual ability. While the most common label is 'spiritual ability', I prefer to think of them as natural abilities. I feel that by labeling them as spiritual, automatically gives it a 'religious' aspect, and I don't believe spirituality has anything to do with these gifts. They are not bound by religion. They are not bound by culture. They are not bound by your personal beliefs. Many of us are just born with them, long before religion or spirituality is ever introduced to us.
These gifts give people the ability to manipulate energy so to speak. Of course different gifts or abilities allow the person to do different things. To me these gifts are very natural. Just like some people can sing, some people can't. Some people can draw, while others can't. Some people can engineer an entire building, and I know I can't do that. So you see, people have a wide variety of natural abilities. Some people can read thoughts, some people can feel the energies around them. Some people can move objects with their minds. Some people can manipulate weather. Some people can see into the future. The list goes on and on just like any regular list of talents.
When I was about twelve years old, going through puberty, light bulbs used to burst around me, and electronics would mess up all the time. While these things still happen to me in peak emotional moments, most spiritual abilities surface during this time in a young persons life. Their bodies and minds are changing, and these gifts surface. Electronic manipulation is common in people with spiritual gifts. It is usually the one that manifests first, followed by the actual root gift.
The root gift most people have is that natural intuition. It is something we are all born with, but some over time lose it because they have either been taught it doesn't exist, or just stray from that path altogether. Natural intuition is that gut feeling you get sometimes that tells you something is going to happen, or gives you that feeling that pulls you to make a certain decision. To develop this, all you have to do is trust in yourself. The next time you get this inkling in your spirit, follow it. The more you use it, the stronger it will get.
I have a client who I will call Rita in this article. Rita always had strong intuition, deja-vu, and just these strong dreams of things to come that usually came true. Her father had always convinced her that she was crazy, that these feelings were caused by the devil, so she had come to resent her gifts. She had come to me asking me how to turn them off, that she didn't want that 'evil' inside of her anymore. It took awhile, yet I ultimately was able to let her see these gifts are not evil, they are not bad - that they were natural and can be used to really enhance her life. I gave her an exercise to do, and told her that if it makes her feel uncomfortable, then perhaps it is best that she turns this gift off, but if it doesn't then she should just learn to open up to them and use them.
To turn off gifts, all you have to do is close your eyes and see an eye in the center of your mind. See this eye clearly, then see it close. Keep doing this whenever you feel that your gift is surfacing and it will turn off. However, I let her know that by doing the opposite, it would open up the gift, allowing her to use it, to develop it and really harness it. The opposite would be seeing that same eye in your mind, but seeing it open. Seeing it vividly, and doing this often. Seeing a white light come out of it and surrounding you. This opens up your natural gifts, and let me tell you - it changed her life.
Not only did she make a complete change, accepting the gift and using it, yet she had launched her own Reiki center in New York, and is now helping train thousands of people with the use of energy work. That is just one example of how I have seen spiritual gifts bloom in people. Another example that I want to talk about is a client of mine who I will call 'Randy'. Randy has been through a very difficult life. He has lost both of his parents in a car wreck a few years ago, and currently lives in Boston where he is pursuing his art career. He is a talented painter, and often finds himself painting the most vivid oil paintings, not even knowing where the image came from. It was like he was being guided.
Every since first connecting to Randy's energy, I always felt a strong power inside of him. He had many gifts, yet I had explained to him that what he was experiencing was called intuitive painting. He was picking up on the energies around him, or around certain people or situations, and translating that energy into an image. This shook him, because his last painting was of a murder. It was a man that had fatally stabbed a woman down on a round red carpet. There was a little demon whispering in the mans ear in the painting. This caused Randy alarm, because usually his paintings were much less violent, but this is the first time a little demon appeared in the painting.
I let him know that this painting was an actual event that took place in that very same building about 70 years before. Upon further research, he was able to find that building history, and sure enough there was a murder there. The families name was Murdoch, and he had painted the scene exactly as it was described in the article he found. His ability was spiritual or intuitive painting. I let him know if he developed this further, by just closing his eyes, allowing the energies around him into his mind, and painting what he sees, he would be able to communicate with spirits too. Gifts can always be developed into something much more beautiful.
There are countless other gifts that are very real, including weather manipulation, spirit contact, telekinesis, clairvoyance, remote viewing, astral projection, lucid dreaming and so much more. No matter your gift, a sure way to open it is to do exactly as explained earlier, I will list the steps here for easy access:
How to open a spiritual ability:
Sit in a comfortable place.
Close your eyes.
Quiet your mind.
See an eye in the middle of your mind.
Vividly see it open.
See white light coming out of the eye.
See that light surround you.
Open your eyes, seeing that eye still open in your mind.
Go about your day.
The more you do this the more you are opening your spiritual gifts up. You will notice your intuition getting stronger. Your dreams will become more vivid. Your ability to feel the emotions and thoughts of those around you will heighten. Many amazing things will start happening once you are spiritually awake, and this exercise will really aid in that process.
Never be ashamed to be special. There are millions with natural gifts out there, yet most remain in the closet afraid to open up. Be the best you possible. Accept yourself for all that you are, and no matter what, always know you are not alone. There are others going through the same thing. Don't hide who you were born to be. Open yourself up, develop your gifts, and manifest a beautiful world around you!
