Essentials for Discovery & Development of Psychic Powers

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on February 01, 2011
posted under Psychic Powers

A cardinal principle of psychic empowerment holds that psychic potentials exist in everyone and can be developed through appropriate programs. Common to those programs are the following three essentials:

Motivation. The number one essential in developing your psychic potentials is motivation, the doorway to psychic power. Given motivation, you become goal oriented and focused in your pursuit of psychic empowerment. Without it, you are like a minnow in a shallow country stream, darting about without purpose or plan.

Learning. Through your exploration of various psychic concepts, exercises, and development programs, you will discover the knowledge that’s essential to your psychic growth and development. You will also discover that knowledge is power, and knowledge of psychic origin is power in its highest form. You will find that the supreme personal psychic exists within your own being as an essential part of yourself. It beckons your interaction and is constantly poised to enrich your life.

Practice.  In developing your psychic potentials, there is no substitute for practice. Through practice using various exercises and programs, you will discover the tools and techniques that work best for you. Through continued practice, you will develop your psychic powers to their peaks.

Through motivation, learning, and practice, you will discover ways of using those powers to accelerate your growth and enrich the quality of your life. Beyond that, you will find effective ways of contributing to the greater good and making the world a better place.
