Developing psychic abilities is so rewarding. But I’ll be honest – it can feel a little scary a times. Today I’ll teach you how to overcome some of the common concerns that people have when they are developing their mediumship or intuitive gifts.

When you live life as an intuitive, you get to see the world from a different perspective using all six of your senses. It’s fun and it seems like there is never a dull moment!
However, you may also have some anxiety because things are unfamiliar.
The first thing I want to tell you is that just about everyone who goes through a psychic awakening has felt some uncertainty at one time or another. Take comfort that you’re not alone.
Now let’s get to the good stuff:
Developing Psychic Abilities Without Fear
1. Fear of “Something” Bad or Evil
When I formally began my psychic and mediumship training in 2000, I found it exhilarating. Everything was so new and exciting and it was such a joyful time.
Fast forward to 2012, when I began working as a psychic coach. Now being on the other side of the fence, I was surprised to see how many of my students had a fear that they would accidentally tap into something evil.
This was never really a concern for me, so I consulted with my spirit guides about how to help my students overcome this concern. I was given these five words:
Everything is from the Light
This should help put things into perspective for you lickety-split. You are from the Light, working in the Light, and therefore, you are not attracting negative energies. Remember, like attracts like.
The negative spirits don’t want to connect with you, and your Guides won’t let them through anyway. If you’re like me, dabbling with anything that’s not from the Light is not the kind of work you strive to do.
Remember this: No matter what you are called to do, whether it be spirit communication, mediumship, Akashic Records readings, tarot card readings, crystal readings, etc. as long as you are working in the Light from a place of love, you should not have any problems.
Ask yourself this question: Why am I developing psychic abilities? If you answered (as most of my students do) that you want to help others with your gift, you are working in the Light.
2. Fear of Receiving a Negative Message About Someone
Okay, here’s the thing: If you are afraid of giving a negative message, this is a good thing! It means that you are so concerned with the welfare of another human being that you would never intentionally hurt them.
The solution to this concern is to simply ask your Guides that you not be shown this type of information if there is nothing that can be done about it. An affirmation such as, “I ask that I only receive information that is for the highest and best good of all involved” will help.
I would also encourage you to get a good understanding of free will and the role it plays in psychic readings:
3. Fear of Not Being Able to “Turn Off”
When you are developing psychic abilities, the beginning stages can be a whirlwind. This is the time where you have the least control over your abilities. For example, you may find that:
- You are having trouble sleeping because you sense spirits around or see visions when you close your eyes.
- You unintentionally pick-up “stuff” about random people while you are in the store, walk into a room, etc.
This can take a little time to get under control, but it is absolutely doable. You will not forever be walking around unable to control your intuitive gifts. As a matter of fact, once you get the hang of it, you will be able to turn your abilities on and off as easily as opening and closing a door. It becomes that natural and simple.
Start Getting Control Today:
Your spirit guides are your best friends and helpers when you do this type of work. Ask them for help:
- Ask them that they not allow spirits to come through when you are not working or practicing your development.
- The same goes for picking up on the energies of others. Ask your Guides to help you turn off your abilities when you are not using them. You definitely don’t want to be “on” 24 hours a day. When you ask your Guides for help with this, pick out a symbol that represents when you are “on” and when you are “off.” Centering prior to a reading with a meditation and grounding afterwards will help.
Feeling better yet?
I really hope so! As you can see, there are ways around each and every fear, insecurity, and roadblock when you are developing psychic abilities. Whenever you are in doubt or feeling scared, take a deep breath and call in your spirit guides for help.
