Psychic Development

This article was written by Donald Michael Kraig on May 29, 2002

Classes called "Psychic Development Classes" have been popular for years, and indications are that they will remain so for years to come. People simply want to develop and increase their psychic abilities.

In a real Psychic Development Class you should be shown how to develop your psychic abilities and be able to make practical use of them in your daily life.

Classes in Psychic Development should include, but not be limited to the following:

1) Divinatory methods
2) Meditation methods
3) Aura vision development
4) Creative visualization (making your dreams come true)
5) How to heal (actually, how to help another heal him or herself)
6) Relaxation techniques

8) Self-confidence, self-love and ego building
9) How to breathe properly and special breathing techniques
10) Ability to attune with other people or things
11) Improving all types of ESP (telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, telekinesis, etc.)
12) Self-hypnosis
13) Astral projection and astral travel
