In my mind, psychic powers are the basic platform for spiritual gifts. What makes the difference between them? Between being raw psychic or the deeper spiritual, the answer dwells in the heart of the holder of the gifts. Most higher creatures are Psychic. Because these creatures have Instincts and the ability to communicate via Telepathy. Telepathy is the basis of Psychic abilities. The Power of the Mind to communicate with others via mind to mind contact. This happens all the time in the wild. How else do the Wolf Packs in Canada hunt? They can’t exactly call out, ‘hey Frank you fall to the back, Gertrude, you sneak around the side and I’ll surprise them from that bush over there!’ No way, they communicate via body language, vocal noises, scent and telepathy.
Just like Animals, Humans too communicate via body language, vocal noises, scent and telepathy. You ever heard the expression “you could cut the air with a knife” that expression comes from the awareness of the atmosphere another person’s mind is creating. They are expanding their aura with messages in thought form to anyone who comes close and that message is – I am not happy! You may also have heard people say that someone’s house has a lovely feel to it. That is because that person has enriched their surroundings with their feelings of love and happiness. The thought energy has infused into the air and furniture, it has coloured the home with a light that cannot be replicated by the Sun or by light bulbs. It is the light of the Mind and Heart.
Psychic gifts range from the ability to See, hear, feel or smell and sometimes taste Spirit energy. You could have the Psychic gift of Prophesy or of Healing. You may be able to perceive energy at a much higher vibration than others and so, be able to see Auras. Or you may have the ability to connect with another’s energy and gather information about them. Of course you may have a combination of any or all of these gifts. I have a combination of them, too.
So the Psychic gifts are there, but as I mentioned, they don’t become Spiritual gifts unless there is something special in the heart of the beholder. So how is that? Well let’s say that my neighbour, Mrs Potts is Psychic, but if she uses her gifts for her own gains and not for the help of others, her Psychic gifts will remain stunted. She will never feel them transform into a higher vibration. Not that Mrs Potts would do that, but you get the idea. I believe we all have Psychic Gifts , but only those who are of a kind heart and who use their gifts to benefit Humanity, experience their Psychic Powers in the heightened state of Spiritual Gifts.
We could look at it this way. You take two living people. On the same day they both die. One chooses to stay in the Astral and remain on the Earth Plain, the other turns and trusts and goes into the Light. Both are deceased, but one now has to fight to survive, having to turn to haunting the living to regain energy, while the other is powered by the source, and only returns to the Earth plain to Guide and Love the Living, having no need to take from them. So we could say that the person who is in the Astral is in his basic Ghostly form and the person who is in the light is in his higher Spirit form.
Or another way to think on it is that if we can see that two living people who have the same Psychic gifts can be powered in the two different fashions.. Those who choose to use their gifts to only serve themselves and who are afraid to Trust in God, must always be bound to a more difficult, lower vibration. They must find ways to compensate for the holes in their energy and in their abilities. Yes, they may become powerful, but at what price? Yet the person who uses their gifts for the benefit of others, may still go through a time of difficulty with their gifts, but they end up powered by The Great Spirit of Life, by all of the Universe, they are enlivened by their abilities and they become stronger. Their abilities become easier to access and the experience is that of a much higher vibration.
Thus I think of it as Psychic is the base of the knowledge, Spiritual is the filler and the cream.
Being Psychic is everyone’s gift. But being Spiritual, is the higher vibration of Psychic and that is only reserved for those who wish to do good in this World. Is that you? If you are willing to use your gifts to help others, in time, you will feel amazing. Remember also, that what you put out there is what you will get back, so while you are using your Spiritual gifts to help Humanity, others in turn, will use their spiritual gifts to help you! It really is that simple and that rewarding.
