“YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER. . . “
I must confess after many years of teaching psychic development, and creating many SIMPLE and short exercises to help individuals expand his or her own psychic abilities, there are still some who do not wish to actually practice the exercises which will help expand their abilities. Why do they not practice them? Because they simply want the results without trying. Perhaps some of these students did not realize that in order to increase their abilities, practice is required. It is work. Reading a book or watching someone else do it will not expand one’s ability unless he or she practices what they have read or witnessed.
Those who have practiced their exercises, and used techniques I have shown them, have expanded their abilities. Some of my former students are now psychic practitioners.
I encourage you to find a variety of psychic practitioners who teach workshops, classes and courses to help you on your intuitive journey. I offer online instruction and will list them here: Psychic Development
THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO FIRST WHILE EXPANDING YOUR OWN ABILITIES IS MEDITATION
Meditation is key before your practice.
MEDITATION IS THE KEY IN WHICH TO BUILD ALL OTHER ABILITIES UPON
Get comfortable with meditating.
There are a variety of meditations which can help you practice and expand your abilities. But before finding the meditations you are comfortable using, do these two things first:
SET YOUR INTENTION TO MEDITATE
Without intention, nothing gets accomplished. By setting your intention to meditate, you have already set the course for a more successful meditation.
The key to getting the most out of meditation is to prep yourself first with breathwork. Whether you are trying to open your third-eye, or you are merely trying to relax enough to actually meditate, breathwork will make all the difference in the world. There are a variety of videos on YouTube to guide you.
Here is a mediation that will help you activate your third-eye (pineal gland):

You will rapidly increase your psychic abilities when you spend at least 15 to 20 minutes per day meditating. If you choose to find shorter breathwork or meditations, so be it. Meditation matters.
You may find staying focused is the most challenging part of meditating. If the breathwork you did previously has not helped you relax, go back and repeat your breathwork. You may also incorporate these:
OPEN YOUR EYES
Keeping your eyes partially opened will help your mind to relax. When you close your eyes completely from your beta state of consciousness (active mental state), your mind continues to stay active. You may find yourself making mental notes of all of the things you need to do “after” your meditation. Whatever comes your way in thought, acknowledge it, and dismiss it. Go back to your intention of meditating.
USE A CONCENTRATIVE MEDITATION TECHNIQUE
You may look at an object (e.g., candle flame, picture) helps you to concentrate and prevents you from falling asleep.
CLOSING YOUR EYES
Many people like to close their eyes while meditating. There are benefits to this as well. Not only does it allow you to drift into the next state of consciousness a bit more easily, it also eliminates anything that may distract your vision.
It also helps with any visualization work you do.
If you fall asleep, no big deal. Try meditating another time. It may take you several weeks or several months before completing a successful meditation. Once done properly, and with practice, you will be able to easily meditate.
LEARN TO BE STILL
I have heard many people say they simply do not have the patience to meditate. I get it, really. I used to be the same way. That is, until I successfully meditated and reaped the benefits of it.
If you cannot sit or lie still for 15 to 20 minutes a day, then start with five minutes and build up from there.
