Power your mind for psychic talents, just like any muscle in the human body, by exercising in order to develop strength. Similarly, throughout your life you are constantly exercising these talents in small ways, just as you naturally exercise your body without physically exerting yourself.
Channeling is a type of mediumship that involves a message in the form of energy to be transferred between the medium and another entity. These messages can be either transmitted or received. This varies from similar psychic abilities like clairvoyance in that the medium is usually in an altered state of consciousness while channeling.
Power your mind for this psychic talent by beginning with concentration exercises that will hlep you visualize images and people in your mind. You can work on this attribute by focusing on a photograph and doing your best to memorize it in a set time interval. One minute is a good starting place. You will then attempt to visually recreate the image in your head. It might be best to start off with either a simple image or a familiar picture, as it will be easier to recreate.
It is also very helpful to keep a record of your progress. Maybe a journal will do the trick. Try jotting down the date, what you tried to accomplish, and your results. As you get further along, you can note your progress from your earlier ventures.
Reaching an altered state is the second necessity to performing channeling. This can be a challenge, and you will very likely have to practice before you can perform it at will. Meditating will likely bring you to the right state. Visualize the person or entity that you wish to channel. Ask them your questions. See what they have to say. I will often channel people who know the answers to my questions or problems and try to discern what they would say about them. Generally, I channel people with expertise in those areas or people whose opinions I respect. I always express appreciation and gratitude to those I channel after the session is over.
If meditation does not work for you, know that there are other options. One way you can attempt to reach this trance-like state is by partaking in an activity that is calming, yet active, as well as something you enjoy doing. For example, if you enjoy arts and crafts you can try to draw or doodle to power your mind. The work you create could be a tangible outcome of your channeling experience. And you do not have to be a great talent to reach trance in such a manner. If you enjoy music, even the most basic humming or singing in the shower could lead you to a medium experience. You may be unsure whether or not you have connected with a spiritual entity or not, but remember that practice makes perfect when you are aiming to power your mind.
