Hello Beauties! I’m am so glad that you have joined me for this Intro to Sixth Sensory Living Workshop! Here, we will be chatting for the next two weeks about our NATURAL INTUITIVE CENTERS, (that each of us have), that help us open up and tune into subtle energies, such as thought energy, stored memory, emotions and vibes that other people and objects give off, as well as our spiritual support systems and the energies of The Universe, Divine Love, and UI (Universal Intelligence).
This group is non-denominational and respects all religions and spiritual beliefs, and does not teach from any particular religion or spiritual belief system. With that being said, I would encourage you to take the information that I share that resonates with you, and leave what doesn’t. This will come in particularly when we start talking about “Spirit Guides”.
A Spirt Guide is a spiritual energy that guides you through your life. This could be a God that you worship, a spiritual mystic, guardian angels, spiritual healers, spirit animals, diseased ancestors, your higher self, etc. Please allow yourself to have your own true and loving connections with your Spiritual Support system, in a way that resonates with you. I will be using the term “Spirit Guides” when referring to this loving and guiding spirit, but please feel free to give it your own term. 🙂
In order to understand our natural intuitive centers, we must first review the basic chakra system (aka our Spiritual Anatomy). This may be something you already are familiar with, but if not, please visit this link, and flip through the beginner posts here that cover the basic chakra system. There is a lot of info that I will be covering, and I will be placing all of the info for you on this Link as well, so you can refer to it, even after this group ends.

OK, let’s dive in! Once you have familiarized yourself with the basic chakra system, and what each chakra governs, you are free to move forward into the new content below!
Day 2: What if I told you that being “Psychic”, was completely normal, and in fact, everyone is psychic to a certain degree?
Well, Pretty Blossom, in my view, this statement is 100% accurate, and here is why;
We each have an aura, and the same chakra system. It is our Spiritual Anatomy. Humans have this, animals have similar energetic systems, and scientists has even been able to measure and document the etheric body of plant leaves…
Just as everyone has lungs to breathe, and a heart that pumps blood and oxygen to the body, everyone has an energetic system that takes in energy from the environment, processes it, and releases it. The difference between you and someone who openly calls themselves “psychic, sensitive, or intuitive,” in my view, is just the level of awareness, openness to receive this information, and the amount of practice that someone has put into developing these skills, and strengthening the chakras that correspond with these intuitive senses.
Much like how everyone can learn to balance their chakras, which you read about yesterday in the chakra posts on my blog, everyone can learn to become more attune to subtle energies in the environment (in my view).
All chakras play a part in bringing in and processing external energy to some degree, but for this workshop, we will be chatting a bit about all of them, but will be focusing in on the main two; Your Third Eye Chakra (Psychic Vision, or Clairvoyance), and your Solar Plexus Chakra (Clairsentience).
One thing we must learn to do, prior to opening up and using these chakras with more intention, is how to stay and remain “grounded”. When someone is well grounded, this means that they have a solid connection to their body and the earth. They feel at home on the earth, and in their human lives, and this is something that is very important to keep in mind while we begin to welcome higher vibration experiences into our lives and energetic experiences. If we are not grounded, we can become detached a bit from our day to day reality, and the people in it, valuing spirit and our spiritual experiences more than our human lives and our very human and practical day to day experiences. *Nothing drastic here, but worth the note. In truth, both are important, and what we want to do is work to find a happy balance between living higher up into our spiritual centers, while staying securely grounded into our vital lower chakras that govern our survival, human desires, family, friends, career, social life and physical health, etc. 🙂
So, Pretty Blossom, let’s make sure that you are good and grounded, before we dive any further into your natural intuitive centers! 🙂
Here is a post, including some earthy holistic tools, that will help you get and stay grounded: (click the image below)
Hi Beauties! I believe that everyone is psychic to a certain degree. Here is a simple exercise to explore and understand a bit more about how you take in and perceive intuitive energies.
Please close your eyes, breathe deeply and calmly…
Now, please allow me to place an orange into your hands.…
Take a moment (with you eyes closed) to experience this orange in your hands.
- Can you see it, as if seeing it in a dream?
- Can you smell it?
- Can you taste it?
- Do you hear anything?
- Can you sense its temperature and texture?
- Do you just have a sense of knowing that it is there?…
- What else are you experiencing? Memories? People? Feelings?…
Whatever your experiences are, pay attention to the one that feels strongest, and consciously experience it with your full attention.
Please know that all of your experiences are valid, and it exactly how you currently perceive subtle energies.
Here is a break down of the different psychic “Clair’s”. Which is your dominant Clair?
- Clairvoyance, (sight), a psychic ability to see clearly
- Clairgustance, (taste), a psychic ability to taste clearly
- Clairaudience (hearing), a psychic ability to hear clearly
- Clairolfaction (smell), a psychic ability to smell clearly
- Clairsentience (feelings/physical sensations), a psychic ability to feel clearly
- Claircognizance (knowing), a psychic ability to know clearly
💕 Congratulations! You have had your first sixth sensory experience! Let me know your experiences and your DOMINANT Claire, below!

here are two of my favorite audio books that can help you connect deeper to your higher self and your spirit guides;
Tips for Understanding Ego vs. Intuition:
I love Sonia Choquette, because she explains your intuitive side in a way that is SIMPLE to understand. This was a great video about how to tell the difference between thoughts that come from your Ego vs. inspiration that comes from your higher self.
Is your Ego getting in the way? Her is my shift in perspective, when it comes to the Ego! 🙂
Hi All! So we have talked mostly about our third eye chakra, throat chakra and solar plexus chakra as being our main “psychic centers”, however we have another important chakra to cover. Our Heart Chakra.
Perhaps you don’t feel particularly connected to the psychic centers I mentioned above… If so, you may be someone who connects with others and spirit more heavily through the energies of EMOTION. This is known in the psychic world as being “Empathic”, which is when you connect to others (both in the physical and spiritual realms) through your heart chakra, and exchange information through the energy of love and emotion. Empaths often feel the emotions and moods of others, even before someone enters a room, or before they speak. This is also a very common type of intuitive experience. Empaths commonly don’t know their are empathic, but they may feel more comfortable around less people, away from cities, and most comfortable in the own space, alone. I have personally experienced a lot of anxiety that comes along with being Empathic, so again, this is why GROUNDING is so beneficial and important. 😉 *
If you think that you may be personally effected my other peoples moods and emotions, that knowledge it POWER< and by learning shielding and grounding techniques, you will be able to effectively protect yourself from absorbing too much of this energy that doesn’t serve you. *I will be covering more on this in future posts!
Here is a post from my blog that I want to share with you, about the heart chakra, and how I am able to connect to my family members who have passed through this chakra:
The KEY to connecting to your loved ones in spirit is your heart chakra.
When I lost my Great Grandmother and the ANGEL of my family, I was crushed.
At the time, I was just learning how to tap into my natural intuitive centers effectively, and at this point in my development, it was easiest for me to connect with Spirit when surrounded by water. One morning in the shower, I closed my eyes and did a short meditation, hoping to receive some kind of message from my sweet Grandmother who had passed a few days earlier… I learned from my spiritual teachers a technique of presenting Spirit with a question, and having them place an object in my hand as a way to give me a “visual symbol” of the answer…
As I felt my grandmothers spirit fill me, it was the most amazing and comforting feeling in the World. I just knew it was her. I felt like I had felt back when I was with her as a child. Her energy brought me back to those beautiful memories and time we had spent together before she was struck with illness, Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and then ultimately (after long years spent in a nursing home), her passing.
I didn’t want her feeling to leave me, so as I filled with happy but sorry tears, I asked her “Grammy, how can I connect with you like this again? I don’t want you to leave me!…” Putting my hand out, with my eyes still closed, I waited for her to place something in my hand, like my spiritual teacher has recommended. I sensed that what she had given me in my palm was a key hole…. I laughed because it didn’t give me an answer that I was able to completely understand, but I was very happy that I received a clear hint! Shocked really!
At that point, I was still in my early development of the psychic senses…. I asked another question, slightly giggling with anticipation and slight disbelief… “Here is the key whole, thanks Gram, but where is the key?” I outstretched my hand once more, but instead of receiving a symbolic object, I felt her touch my hand, which she then placed on my heart….. I cried my eyes out, thanked her, and I have happily been able to connect with her ever since then, on a regular basis.
As I learned more about the heart chakra, I began to understand more and more about what she meant. We connect with other people through many chakras, but the heart chakra is a strong center in which we use to sense human emotion and the love connection that we share with others, both in life and in Spirit…
By having a strong, healthy and open heart chakra, we are able to receive more of this clear, loving energy and communication from Spirt, which of course opens the doors for loving experiences and symbolic dialog.
I will be chatting more about this topic in the Free Intro to Sixth Sensory Living Workshop that will be starting on January 4th, 2016. (Please see my “Free Online Workshops” page for a list of my available workshops and courses.)
In the mean time, I really wanted to share this story with everyone and offer a Healing Crystal that does an amazing job with really clearing out and opening the heart chakra; Malachite
Wishing you a beautiful 2016 filled with loving connections and fond memories! ~Aly
