Being psychic involves skills that can be learned, just like any craft or art. It is a bit like learning a language, the language of spirit. The conventional wisdom of course is that while a craft can be taught (knitting, paper arts, drawing) art-making is a magical gift bestowed from the Gods to a select and privileged few. This is not at all true. Becoming psychic is no different than become an artist - the fundamental first step is learning to accept yourself, making your work personal by following your inner voice, and learning tools and a craft to express yourself to the world.

“A million dollars?” the guy exclaimed. “That only took you thirty seconds!”
“Yes,” said Picasso. “But it took me fifty years to learn how to draw that in thirty seconds.”
