You dream about things before they happen. Your sense about what song is about to play on the radio is almost always perfect. What if this wasn’t just coincidence but a natural psychic intuition manifesting itself? Psychic Abilities for Beginners by Melanie Barnum is an interactive guide to honing in on your psychic skills and getting a taste of what the other side may be trying to say to you.
Barnum outlines psychic skills in a how to guide, breaking down the book into individuals segments complete with practice exercises, ways to check your progress and small anecdotes regarding her experiences as a psychic. Barnum does the right thing and insists that if you decide to follow the exercises in the book that you do at least the basic protection ritual she specified in the beginning sections. This is advice that all who attempt to mess with forces beyond our knowledge should take note of. Any ghost hunter, psychic or spiritualist worth their salt should be taking precautions.
Now for those who don’t believe, the book at times with feel silly and more like a series of lessons on focus and deduction. Still, these exercises can be fun and great ways to work on how one sees the world around one and explores it.
Psychic Abilities for Beginners is available from Llewellyn Worldwide December 8, 2014.
