I recently heard on a radio show where the host had on a guest who after having survived a plane crash followed by 2 more NDEs, became extremely psychic. Following surgery, she became a metaphysical healer. And after surgery, she became a trans medium, neither by choice.
During the show the guest expressed that we are all intuitive but not many are truly psychic.
That has left me wondering if the only way to achieve psychic abilities is to have a NDE, like you experienced. Or to experience some major trauma to the body and spirit, like surgery. Does that leave the rest of us that have not had those experiences to never get beyond the level of intuition, even if it is our desire?
Appreciate your thoughts on this.
I don't think it is required to have a Near Death Experience (N.D.E) in order to have a spiritual awakening. And.... in my experience, a) anyone who is following the spiritual path long enough will become psychic, and b) anyone who is following the psychic path long enough will have a spiritual awakening. They are one and the same.
I don't agree with the statement by the guest, that not many are truly psychic. In my work, with the people I come across, there are many, many gifted folks out there, who would have abilities that are at the upper range of intuition/psychic development.
Of course, it helps if one practices :). Even Picasso didn't become a painting genius by sitting around reading. He painted. He immersed himself in it. It was the core focus of his creative being.
This is also what's required—that level of attention and intention—to truly build these skills.
