Begin Your Psychic Journey is a wonderfully comprehensive, user-friendly guidebook to uncovering your innate intuitive abilities.

Did you know we possess five psychic senses that correspond to our five physical senses? Because psychic/intuitive information can come to us in a variety of ways, it helps to be aware of how we can receive these messages. Our five physical senses are comprised of sight, touch, taste, hear, and smell. Our five psychic senses operate on all of these levels too; for instance, some of us hear our messages, some smell certain odors that evoke a deep symbolic meaning, and others feel an answer to a question through touching an object or a person’s hand. By staying open to how you may receive psychic information, you will be less likely to miss or second-guess what you are seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting, or smelling.
It is also interesting to note that whichever of your senses seems most strong at present may change to another sense as you continue to evolve. This is where your notebook can play an important role: jot down any and all psychic snippets you receive at any given time and keep track of how you received the information. By snippets, I am referring to fleeting pieces of information that seem disconnected or do not seem like an entire message. Examples of snippets can be seeing a wash of color, or hearing one word or a short phrase. Very rarely does psychic information come to us as a full sentence or in a scene played out in our mind’s eye. Interpreting our psychic messages comes down, in large part, to recognizing how we usually receive our information and then in knowing what particular symbols mean to us. Can you remember any recent psychic impressions? Through which sense, or senses, did they occur? At your leisure, reflect upon your experiences to date—in the near future it will be interesting to note how your receptivity changes and deepens.
Be sensitive to your five psychic senses as you proceed through this workbook. Give yourself the freedom to experience in your own way and at your own pace. Psychic development is very individualized and personal, and you will experience many “light bulb” moments and increased joy as you progress on your journey.
Becoming more psychically aware is similar to being a detective. Instead of gathering facts about time, place, and modus operandi, you will be uncovering details about your inner workings (and possibly the inner workings of others). Consider how paying attention to the above topics can support this process.

Rebecca Bloom¿s Begin Your Psychic Journey is a treasure-chest of spiritual practice, beginning with its enchanting cover of mountain valley and stream. Within she presents a variety of tools for exploring links between one¿s intuitive nature and day-to-day experiences. Ms. Bloom¿s message encourages one to learn to explore and trust his or her inner nature. Even if the reader only reads and works with the chapter on meditation, the money and effort would be well-spent. Beyond this chapter are a variety of lucidly presented activities, such as those on crystals, dreamwork, animal guides, auras, chakras, and others. Each activity is easy to follow and is capped with a helpful anecdotal entry. Much wisdom pervades this outstanding manual for perusing one¿s spiritual journey.

I know you have read it over and over -- a 'must have for your collection.' This is truly one of those books. Ms. Bloom, the author, speaks to us easily and freely. I have read many books where I felt like the author was either talking to me like I was incompetent or way over my head. Ms. Bloom writes as though she is sitting with the reader and speaking to them. This is quite helpful. She has the ability to explain things to the reader that gives you many an 'aha' moment. What I appreciate the most is that this book will help the reader move forward no matter what stage of self-discovery you are at. I have gifted this book to a few friends and have been thanked over and over for the insight provided. You will find that this book will be a treasure in your collection.Was this review helpful?
