Psychic awakenings are real, but most are not aware of what really causes one. Since we are all born with intuition, it is there, but most of us are taught to ignore this intuition in favor of logic. Some people are also naturally psychic, but their intuitive gifts are never utilized which is relatively sad. This is leaving the most magical parts of ourselves on the table, untouched. Sometimes, we find this ability and take hold of it in such a way that life is better than ever imagined. This is often due to a psychic awakening.
There are several causes or reasons for a psychic awakening that reminds us of the ability that was born in each of us. These are shared below.
Trauma or Near-Death Experience
There are a few people who have had their psychic awakening following something traumatic. One medium had her awakening following a severe car accident that left her comatose, another also had an accident that caused his gifts to be awakened. Accidents are sometimes a doorway that allows our psychic and/or mediumship abilities to be opened up and revealed. There is no deep understanding of why this is often the case, but one theory is that a near-death event forces us closer to the Spirit and serves as a reminder that we are spiritual beings.
Along the same lines, trauma, such as illness or even abuse, can cause a psychic awakening. Those who have battled a long-term illness can learn to recognize their abilities as they recover. Victims of abuse learn to rely on intuition for survival at times and this builds the connection to the spirit. They then become more sensitive to energy that surrounds people and things, increasing ability.
Death of a Loved One
When a loved one passes it is one of the most difficult experiences we can have. For some, knowing about the afterlife helps them feel closer to the divine and they are able to live a more authentic life following the death of someone close. This puts them in touch with inner feelings that can lead to a psychic awakening. This can happen for two reasons.
The first is that losing a loved one can cause people to seek spiritual comfort and in doing so rediscover their own divine essence, connecting with the soul. This is where intuition is found. The other is that after a loved one passes, the people left behind may begin to notice an increase in psychic ability as they start receiving “signs from their loved one”. This recognition of signs from above can heighten personal sensitivity to all spirit type energy.
Many people, predominantly women, will notice an increase in intuition after a new baby is born or adopted. They will know intuitively what a child needs or wants. This is a natural, intuitive doorway to the intuitive realm and spirit.
Sometimes healings, those that are spiritual in nature, can ignite psychic ability. Things like past life regression, cranial sacral therapy, and other spiritual healing forms can shift consciousness and awaken psychic gifts.
