Power your mind for telepathy and notice a substantial growth in this mind power. Quite frequently, exercises to foster the growth of your telepathic skill involve the use of Zener cards. These are a set of cards, each displaying one of five unique, easily distinguishable symbols on its face such as simple shapes like a square, a circle or even a star.
Whether you choose to practice local or distance telepathy, the card method is a popular choice, because it has been proven to be effective. You will need a partner to perform these exercises, as you are not only trying to receive psychic messages, but you also are looking to send them.
To practice local telepathy, you and your partner should be in the same room. Assign the roles of sender and receiver. As you continue to practice this exercise, try swapping roles with your partner, so that you increase both sending and receiving. It is best to sit facing away from one another. This way you will not pick up on any body language, nor will your partner see the card you have drawn.
The sender should begin by shuffling the cards and then draw them one by one, placing them face up so they are visible. The sender should record the card by writing the symbol down on a piece of paper before focusing an image of the symbol toward the receiver. The sender should give a signal that he is ready to transmit. If you are the receiver, you will engage or power your mind upon this signal and prepare to attain a psychic image.
The receiver then announces his guess so that the sender can record it to tally results. It is very important for the receiver to go with the first inclination that comes to mind and not to second guess himself. If your score is low at first, it is not an indication of a lack of psychic talent. Consider a low score inspiration and motivation to power your mind for progress.
Once you are satisfied with your local telepathy abilities, you can try telepathy over distance. You can try this method by means of the telephone. The actual distance does not matter very much at all, but if you feel more comfortable testing your distance telepathy with someone who lives in the same town than someone who lives across the country, by all means stick to your comfort zone. You can always step up.
Distance telepathy can be practiced with an identical method as local, except you are communicating over the telephone. Preferably a speakerphone so that the apparatus does not distract you. This is another great way to keep up the good work and power your mind.
