Tuning In: A Quick Start Guide to "Taking it to the Next Level"

Many of my clients ask how I came so far so quickly as a psychic medium, and (especially if they have had psychic or paranormal experiences), how they themselves can take it to the next level. My answer to the first question is always, "Hard work and dedication. Once I realized what was happening, I threw myself into it and never looked back." I think the fact that I was a teacher, as were my Spirit Guides when they were here helped a lot as well. My answer to the second question is, "Hard work and dedication. While I believe that some people are born mediums (able to talk to dead people), I think that everyone has some degree of intuitive/psychic potential which can be developed in order to benefit themselves and/or others."

I cannot make you more psychic. I can, however, help you to understand how it all works and give you a starting point, along with some helpful hints and tools based on my own experience. How far you go, or what "level" you get to, is entirely up to you and the Universe. Having spent seventeen years as a teacher, I enjoy returning to my first calling in order to help others learn more about the  Spirit World. I have held psychic development circles, teaching others how to raise their vibration and "tune in", but people come in at a different levels of knowledge and awareness and some just want to dive in on their own like I did. I must also emphasize that I did not try to become psychic or a medium. I actually ignored many of the signs that I was psychic until The Spirit World (in my case dead peeps) literally came knocking on my door. Once I started hearing from the dead and began homeschooling myself, I consulted a trusted psychic medium a few times during my DIY journey into mediumship. I found this very helpful, which is why I am sharing what I have learned with you here, and why I now offer mentoring sessions to my own clients. It would, however, take me far too long (and cost you far too much money) to sit and explain exactly how it all works during these mentoring sessions, so I have created this "quick start guide". For the full 4-1-1 on how I did it (and how you can as well), purchase my book, Madame Medium: Unleash Your Inner Psychic with a French Teacher Turned Psychic Medium, available on Amazon.com. A word of warning: If your intention in becoming psychic (or more psychic) is based on money or the ability to control others in some way, you may as well stop reading and hang it up right now, because it ain't gonna happen. You must be in it for the greater good, with your priority being to benefit others more than yourself. If this is the case, please read on and take full advantage of my step by step explanation of what "worked" for me, and which I hope helps get you started on the path to tuning into your own Spirit Guides and the Universal Higher Power that is always working toward the greater good.

As you are doing the "homework assignments" included here, keep a list of questions that you may have and if you get really stuck (if you reach an impasse or feel like you have "plateaued"), set up a one on one Q&A mentoring session with me using the link provided below.

STEP ONE: Adopt an Attitude of Gratitude

The single most important thing you can do to raise your vibration and improve your daily life forever is to focus on the positive and give thanks for all of the good things in your life, be they big or small (no matter how crappy you might feel).

  • Begin and end each day by giving thanks for all that is good or going well in your life.
  • If you are not facing major issues/things are “going your way”, a simple “Thank you, God, Guides, Universe (whomever and whatever you pray ot or give cred to in general) for the gift of this day and past days… and for the possibility of the future” should suffice. I personally pray half a rosary each morning and thank God, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, The Saints, my Guides, relatives past & present (basically anyone who may be listening! lol!), but you do you/whatever you are comfortable with!
  • Giving thanks is even more important when things are not going your way, because it has a greater impact on your mental state and the day(s) ahead!! In this case, I suggest something along the lines of “Thank you, God, Guides, Universe (whomever) for the gift of this day.  I know that whatever difficulties I am experiencing are temporary and meant to teach me something/help me grow. I appreciate the opportunity, and have faith that you will help me to overcome this and create something positive out of this current life challenge.”
  • End each day by giving thanks as well. If the day was a bit of a struggle, ask your Guides to help you find the meaning of it while you sleep! 

STEP TWO: Prepare Your "Classroom"
You'll need a quiet space and a few "school supplies" to get started.
  • Prepare a quiet spot that you can return to at least daily (or as often as possible).
  • Add a candle (or two or three) and anything else that calms or inspires you (crystals? incense?)
  • Get yourself a notebook or journal to record your thoughts and observations (I started out using a sparkly composition book because I think glitter is magical and it was portable. I literally never left home without it!)
  • Assignment #1 (Journal Entry): Have you had any psychic or paranormal experiences? If so, take some time to jot them down in your journal. If you are able, make note of your age at the time and/or any significant events in your life that may have occurred around the same time. Keep your journal handy and continue to record anything exciting or new that occurs once you begin tuning in!

STEP THREE: Acquire Some Background Knowledge
Remember what I said about saving time and money on mentoring sessions/Q&A? This step is crucial to gaining a general understanding of world of psychics, Guides, and Spirits of all kinds.

STEP FOUR: Raise Your Vibration and Start Tuning In
I recommend that you do this daily, preferably in the same place and around the same time each day. You can begin doing this before you do the reading recommended above, but if you are relatively clueless about the Spirit World and how it works, do yourself a favor and at least check out the recommended blog posts beforehand.

Grab your journal, sit down in your quiet spot, light your candle(s).

Set Your Daily Intention: Do you want to understand yourself or a situation better? Would you like to feel more at peace about something? Do you want to know why something has happened or is happening? Ask your Guides to help you understand whatever it is… or to help you see, feel, know… OR just set an intention based on what you plan to do to better yourself and/or your world.  Say (to yourself or out loud):
 “Dear ____, please help me to understand ______, or to become more _______ or less _______, or to see _______, etc. I promise to use whatever knowledge you give me to better myself and/or those around me.”

Protect, Ground Yourself and Open your Chakras… Listen to my guided protection/energy center (chakra) meditation provided here (at least until you feel confident enough to do it on your own)  Beth's Daily Guided Meditation

ONCE YOU FEEL CONNECTED  re-focus on your intention and record anything that you feel, hear, see or think in your journal… or just get going/on with your day! I spent two hours every morning before school and countless additional hours tuning in for two full years before going pro. As with any endeavor, you will only get as much out of this as you put into it.

STEP FIVE: Trust What You "Get" and Pay Attention to the Universe!
Everyone questions what they receive to some degree when they first begin tuning in. Just listen, record whatever you get and go with it. You will probably start noticing all kinds of "coincidences" throughout the day as well once you get rolling. These ARE NOT coincidences, they are "synchronicity" at work... aka the Universe throwing signs your way!

Below is a list of the resources mentioned above, as well as a few other books that I found helpful (under "Going Further"). Above all, be patient with yourself and your Guides, be grateful for any progress that you make, and enjoy the ride!
