If the doors of perception were cleansed,
every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.
For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things
through narrow chinks of his cavern.
—William Blake

Psychic abilities, which we all possess—offer a spacious mind that can change your life and your view of reality. Buddhists and Hindus practiced advanced forms of psychic abilities called Siddhis long before Christ. Scientific interest has been building and the evidence is now out, especially in the fields of quantum mechanics, which offers clear, research based facts on the science behind these abilities. Such abilities come under many terms: clairvoyance, ESP, psi, which is taken from the Greek alphabet and means ‘psyche’ or ‘soul’. Remote viewing, telepathic communication, auto-writing and scrying are skills that many modern people from all walks of life can learn easily and readily develop through practice.

The benefit to acquiring these skills is that perception shifts from a logical, linear-based perception, to a more expansive, spacious and intuitive awareness of reality. Information that is unavailable to the logical mind can appear serendipitously to the intuitive mind. The experience of the latter has been known to be life transforming, and to the uninformed or uninitiated mind, can appear at times to be freaky, scary and unpredictable. An experienced teacher is able to teach the skills necessary and guide the novice through these shifts in perception.

Most people can learn to quiet their mental chatter and move their conscious awareness from their ordinary ego-based mind-set to a much more spacious and expanded mindset—not bound by the barriers of space and time. The eighth-century Buddhist master Padmasambhava described a meditative skill he called moving from conditioned awareness to spacious or naked awareness. Modern man’s internalized perception of nature is often obstructed and distorted by excessive mental noise. This illusion and misperception is what Buddhists call maya or samsara —and it can cause a lot of unnecessary suffering.

This suffering takes its toll on the body, especially pronounced in the calcification of the pineal gland, caused by a build-up of toxins, heavy emotions and marked by a propensity for anxiety, stress-causing behavior and addictions. Meditation, energy clearing, prayer, being out in nature and exercise are ways in which we can decalcify our pineal gland, thereby reducing our stress and incessant, anxious mental chatter. Many are becoming aware of the insidious ways in which they suffer, and realizing that that is not the way we are meant to live. Our bodies are our temples, and the way in which we care for them can make a very big difference to how we experience life.

Developing our psychic gifts is completely connected to our consciousness and essential for understanding our true nature. At the higher levels of consciousness, our perception changes and so does our view of reality. We essentially become more peaceful and loving at these higher levels of consciousness, and sometimes, even let go of relationships, jobs, ways of being that no longer seem relevant. We embrace a way of being that is in alignment with our higher natures and it can seem very different to everyone else, and even to ourselves!
I feel that it is very important for us, as a species to embrace this higher evolution, as a path of ascension, primarily because the war and aggression that occurs at the lower levels of consciousness is destroying our species and this beautiful Earth that we live on.
