Intuitive Development Groups: Why Participate, What Are The Benefits and Where You Can Find One!

By Amanda Linette Meder Psychic Medium

When more than one medium, intuitive or psychic practices connecting with the Divine Universe together in one space, something beautiful happens.

Your Spiritual energy joins with their Spiritual energy and unites to form a collective energy of the group. A dynamic. 

The channel to the Divine that you create as you ‘link’ with Spirit for insight, information and guidance, becomes stronger, as it connects with the other channels of energy around you. Your channel, your link, joins to form a greater source connection with all those around you.

Practicing developing your intuitive and spiritual communication abilities in a group, or simply spending time around those who are actively using and opening their intuitive channels, can amplify your own channel to Spirit. In a really great way.

Think of it like this.

Imagine you are a garden hose, turned on, and the water is flowing from you, spraying directly onto a garden of flowers in front of you.

As you water the flowers growing before you, one spot of the garden grows to be beautiful, bright and brilliant. Your hose is able to concentrate its watering efforts only on one area of the garden at a time.

Now imagine that four other garden hoses line up beside you, with two on either side of you, and together, with your channels open, water flows from each of you to nourish all these different areas of the garden. Together, all the diverse and unique areas of the garden are watered with collective effort and since all parties put in equal effort, all get to benefit for this growing community garden.

For example, if you are primarily clairaudient, and developing your ability to clearly hear messages from your Guides and Angels and you are practicing alongside someone who is primarily clairvoyant, and they are developing their ability to clearly seeing images and messages from their Guides and Angels - some of the water from their hose sprays a little bit onto you, and some of your water, sprays a little bit onto them. Each of you, reap the benefits of the other’s water stream.

You may begin to notice as you open up your clairaudience, that clairvoyant images begin to appear here and there, the flowers of their garden area, begin to slowly pop up and spread over into yours. And vice versa, with you by their side, your neighbor, may begin to notice themselves hearing ringing, popping or buzzing - a sign their clairaudience is opening, and they are receiving some auxiliary benefits from hanging out beside you and your hose.

This is only natural.

When we are focused on illuminating the brilliant areas of our soul, it’s only natural that some of the good work that we do, the Divine energy that we call down, is showered upon those who stand nearby.

Spending time with a spiritual person, and some spirituality energy will wear off on you. Hang out with a psychic, and your own inner intuitions may begin to rise to the surface, or, you start to feel more comfortable voicing these hunches, which you once felt shy about sharing. It’s like if someone takes out an old box of buttons and starts showing them off to you, it doesn’t take long before you suddenly remember, a few buttons you have in your closet, and they start to become unearthed and illuminated, as well.

When practicing or simply by spending time in a pair or a group with others who have complementary abilities or alternative focuses of development (psychometry vs. direct mediumship), you gain the benefits of having other areas of the flower bed watered, without having to focus on those specific areas. All channels of water combine to form the greatest and best outcome for the entire psychic garden. More water flowing to one place at one time, more collective nourishment for the garden and you see greater increases in growth in a shorter amount of time.

This is why I highly encourage you to find a group of people to develop your abilities with.

This is called a Development Circle.

And it can exist as a small group class or an informal meeting of like minded folks, such as in a group. A development circle is generally a group of 3-8 individuals who practice connecting with Spirit, developing their intuitive abilities and learning about psychic abilities and spiritual growth - together on a weekly or monthly basis. It is usually lead each week by a facilitator, one who leads the group in a certain direction or weekly focus, such as a teacher or another intuitive friend who was assigned the role that week.

A Development Circle can speed up your growth, assist you in making friendships with people who have similar interests and help strengthen and open your own channel. You can nourish all the flowers in your garden, to a greater extent, when you combine watering activities with the others who have access to nearby hoses. There may be local Development Circles near you, which you can often join for a small donation or class fee.

Don’t have a group near you or you do, but it’s private, at an inconvenient time for you, or you feel nervous about going to sit with strangers you’ve never met before?

I understand.

Which is why, together with Sarah Petruno Shamana, we are starting an online, virtual and community based Development Circle!  

Now, you can develop your abilities in the collective benefits of a circle, at any distance when you join myself and Sarah Petruno Shamana in a weekly live intuitive development circle, hosted online with an interactive chatroom component.
