Can You Lose Your Psychic Abilities?
Have you been actively connecting with Spirit?
Developing your intuition and having experiences?
Practicing seeing, hearing, and receiving messages for yourself and others?
And then suddenly. . . nothing?. . . it all stops?
If this has happened to you, you aren’t alone. And no, you likely aren’t losing your gifts.
What you are experiencing is normal.
Psychic abilities, just like all things in life, are part of a cycle. We all delve into projects, ideas, and relationship full force, full swing and with a full heart. We then go through periods where we to step back, regain perspective and give energy to another area of our life that we may have neglected.
Your intuitive gifts are tools you can use to gain meaning, perspective, and understanding on life - but how can you fully do that, without a period of time where you can reflect?
A period of separation from your gifts is a normal and necessary part of development.
It's generally seen as a time to reflect and process your experiences.
A reflective period just as important for growth as the active period.
In science, this is called dormancy - a period of time where the organism stores and gathers resources for the active growing period. A period of seasonal dormancy is important for the manifestation of all new healthy seeds each spring, even in the most vigorously growing of all plant species. Rather than thinking you've gotten your gifts 'taken away' use this period as a reflective time and be patient.
Consider this downtime to be a place where you gather resources, perspective and energy before delving back in for another long swim. Welcome it. During this time, read, relax, learn and contemplate. Journal. Write down what you have learned, experienced and what you are ready to release, from your previous experiences in the spiritual and intuitive realms. Gather resources, wisdom and nourishment for the next leg of your journey.
In addition to the natural reflective period, your downtime period can occur for another reason.
Psychic abilities often disappear when you are experiencing a physical world difficulty. To grow within our own Spirit and to learn the lessons of our own soul, we sometimes must find those answers for and within ourselves. To fully learn your lessons in the physical, you need to fully step into the physical and out of the Spiritual, to focus on fully experiencing life on Earth. Your intuitive gifts can subside during difficult life experiences so that you can focus on life, living and learning.
If you are always reaching up for Spirit, how will you to ever dig deep to find your own answers as a soul?
When you are more present in your own life, you will often find your own answers and grow.
So when your external guidance subsides, it’s actually a great time to connect with the heart center and begin focusing more on your own feelings, your clairsentience and what your heart is telling you, rather than external guide. This helps develop your ability to trust yourself, and it helps to grow your connection and confidence in your own higher self.
I know it is not the answer you might be looking for, but I will say that I’ve been here more than once and you develop your resolve and resilience in life, once the external answers stop flowing, and it’s time to look within.
