Not all psychic mediums use meditation. It’s possible to connect to energy without it. After all, you’ve been passively doing it your entire life. However, there is purpose in meditation. It serves an array of functions. Today, in my Psychic 101 series, we’re talking about meditation, troubleshooting problems with meditation, and how to gain the most out of your meditation to support your exploration of psychic abilities.
The Purpose of Meditation
There is power in a still mind. Meditation raises your vibration, opens you up to receiving messages from your spirit guides, restores internal balance, and increases your connection to the environment around you. All of these things can speed up the development of your psychic abilities.
Remember that connecting to energy for the purposes of mediumship requires you to set your vibration to the appropriate mhz or frequency at which the energy lives or vibrates. So, for example, if you want to contact Spirit, you have to raise your vibration because Spirit operates at a much higher frequency. Sure, you could get to the right level of vibration without meditation but meditation is such a quick and effective way to achieve it… so… really… why would you want to?
Using meditation as a way to communicate with Spirit is also useful because Spirit wants to help develop your gifts! That’s part of their job. Through meditation, communication with you is more fluid and open, allowing them to inspire you with ideas to exercise and develop your abilities.
What is Meditation?
Meditation is a method for stilling the mind and transcending the state of normal waking consciousness. The method varies. There’s breathing-based meditation, movement-based meditation, chanting-based meditation, guided meditation, coloring-based meditation, and laughing-based meditation for example The goal isn’t to chant, it’s to still the mind in order to reach a higher plane of consciousness, and chanting is just how some people do that.
Develop A Ritual
Developing a ritual assists meditations because it trains your mind and your body to transition into the meditative state much easier. However, it also allows you to set the focus (or intention) of your meditation by ritualizing communication with your spirit guides.
If you follow my Instagram account, it shouldn’t surprise you that I incorporate the use of candles for meditation, because I use candles for almost everything. However, what you may not know is that I incorporate the candle lighting with a prayer to my guides that sets my focus for the meditation for my highest good. The prayer goes something like this:
With this candle, I set my intention to meditate for only my highest good,
And to call upon you for help with [insert problem].
You can make this as formal or informal as you need but ritualizing meditation is such an important part of the meditative process because it keeps your meditation goal-oriented and helps train you to rely upon your spirit guides. Further, the problem you’re asking help with doesn’t have to be related to the development of your psychic abilities. You can ask for help with a romantic conflict within your life, you can ask for advice on your career, or even how to develop better behavioral patterns (like meditation!).
Find your Style of Meditation
Meditation is for everyone. If it hasn’t worked for you in the past, perhaps it’s because the style of meditation was simply a poor fit. The simple truth is that not everyone can sit still long enough to meditate in a sitting position. Some people have too much pain to meditate in any other position than the prone position. And sometimes people find it easier to still their mind if they put their bodies to work either by doodling, coloring, or even through movement (like yoga).

Trying to adhere to a meditation schedule using a style of meditation that simply doesn’t work with you only guarantees that you’re less motivated to meditate. If your jam is literally to turn on some music and dance in your undies – and that’s what stills your mind and allows you to transcend your level of consciousness – then jam on.
Play around. Find what works for you. Also start small. Try meditating for five minutes allows you to work your way up to a level that you can handle and have the desire to handle.
