What exactly does psychic development mean? How do you do know if you are an enlightened person? and are you spiritually awake?
Spirituality often relates to the non-physical. In a sense it means connecting to a higher power and also personally connecting to the universe. Being spiritual does not mean you have to follow a certain religion or practice. Religious learning usually has a set structure to follow; spirituality does not, and therefore follows only the rules of the higher self. Although many religions have a golden thread of truth which sometimes gets misunderstood or even used to control, spiritual people realise deep down that it is up to them to find their own truth.
When undertaking spiritual development, the individual is usually thought to link to a higher power; which is generally accessed through the deepest core of the self; however, there can also be a connection with a higher power outside the self.
The Spiritual Shift
We are now seeing an explosion of interest in psychology, health, natural healing and the arts. It would appear there is a universal shift going on and more and more people are being called by some unseen force or need to connect on a more spiritual level.
The material world seems to be losing some of its appeal as more and more of us search for more meaning in life than the latest gadget or fastest car. We have seen time and time again that people are now more unsatisfied than ever with mere possessions.
We are in a period when the world often seems an unsafe or unsatisfactory place to bring our children into, yet there is still more and more people turning their backs on material aspects and looking for more meaning and love in their life. This is truly a time of Spiritual Awakening.
Signs to look for when Spiritual Awakening Occurs
As your intuition increases and you practice daily mediation even if it’s only for five or 10 minutes a day you may start to be aware of the some of the following:
These are just a few of the things that people have reported when first starting to develop. However your experiences are unique and are different for everyone.

Most people ignore their intuition and by doing so they are letting their psychic potential just go to waste. All of us have psychic abilities albeit some more than others. But did you know that your spiritual skills could be developed and perfected?
First things first - believe in yourself. Negative thoughts only hinder your psychic abilities, try and listen to your inner voice and allow it to guide you. You know the voice I mean? The one that likes to let you know if something is a good or bad idea, the voice you usually dismiss only to discover later that if you had have listened you would have made a much better decision. This voice is an extremely powerful tool if listened too.
Learning to listen is very important in increasing psychic awareness. And after lots of practice you will begin to notice an increase in your overall awareness.
Practice, practice, practice
Practice can be lots of fun and can be done all through the day. Try the telephone guessing game however this is much more difficult now we all have mobile phones and can see who is ringing. Turn your phone upside down or before you pull it out of your pocket or bag guess who is calling.
Another one is to try and read other’s thoughts. Next time you see someone deep in thought guess to yourself what he or she is thinking and then ask them what it is they are thinking about. You do not need to look for exact accuracy with this one as it can be quite challenging. Get yourself a pack of cards and keep trying to guess which card has been drawn from the deck another I like to play with the children, get someone to draw a picture and guess what they have drawn with no clues. Keep track of your hits and misses. Within a few weeks of playing these games your percentage of success will improve. Telepathy can take years and years to develop and will take deep concentration at first, but it does become easier and more reliable with time and practice.
Are you at peace with yourself and those around you? If the answer to this is no then you may find it more difficult to stay in tune with your spiritual side. Learning to relax is going to be much more difficult if you have lots of drama going on around you so try to resolve any difference between you and those around you. Stress and negativity get in the way of complete relaxation
Meditation can take some practice you might want to experiment with various techniques until you find one that’s right for you. There is no right or wrong way to practice meditation and the idea is to relax and focus your mind. Meditation is very important for psychic abilities and will help strengthen the connection to your spiritual self.
