How to Develop Psychic Abilities & Set Energetic Boundaries


Are you interested to learn how to develop psychic abilities? I’m Danielle MacKinnon, your guide on this mystical journey. I’ve been enjoying the psychic training scene for over 20 years, and nothing thrills me more than watching peeps discover — *gasp* — they’re psychic too!

Here’s Why Developing Psychic Abilities Matters (But Can Also Drain You)

So, you want to peek behind the psychic curtain? Here’s the thing: developing your psychic abilities can jazz up your everyday life, adding a sprinkle of magic to your mundane. I mean, imagine being able to tap in and immediately “know” that something is a total match (or mismatch) for you! This is really cool!

But (and it’s a big but), it’s super important to find that sweet spot between using your intuition and when to give it a rest. You’ve got to know when to crank up those psychic tunes and when to tone them down, ensuring you’re not always on psychic overdrive. This is a common problem (and fear) for peeps just opening their psychic senses.

The Natural Helper Instinct of Those with Psychic Abilities

If you’re drawn to psychic development, chances are you’re a natural-born sensitive (like me!). And by sensitive, I don’t just mean you might tear up during a sappy commercial (though, no judgment if you do!). You have a superpower: tuning into not just your own emotions but everyone else’s too. It’s like you have an emotional antenna that picks up all the feels around you.

This mega-sensitivity usually comes with a heart as big as a whale. You’re the go-to person for advice, the one who knows just how to comfort a friend, and the co-worker who’s always ready to lend a hand. Your instinct to help and give is a beautiful thing—like a loyal golden retriever always eager to please.

So, if you’re nodding along thinking, “Yup, that’s me,” you’re in the right place. Let’s dive into how you can rock your sensitivity, honor your helper instincts, and keep your own energy tank full. Ready to roll? Let’s do this!

Intuition Overload: When Helping Hurts

The challenge with being so in tune with others is that it can be totally draining. You might find yourself feeling like a wrung-out sponge, exhausted and overwhelmed from always putting others first. It’s like you’re carrying not just your own emotional baggage, but everyone else’s too. This overgiving nature can leave you running on empty.

  • Imagine being plugged into everyone’s emotional sockets—all. the. time. (Talk about needing an energy-saving mode!)
  • Sometimes, you just can’t find that “off” switch when you need it the most.
  • And oh, trying to help everyone, even when they didn’t ask for it? That’s the fast track to Burnout City!

It CAN be a lot to be psychic, but it doesn’t have to be. It can also be a glorious experience that helps you enjoy your life more than you ever thought possible – you just have to know what to do and not to do.

5 Tips to Develop Psychic Abilities and Protect Your Own Energy

It’s super important for those of us with active psychic abilities to learn how to manage our energy and set healthy boundaries. It’s not about becoming a hermit crab and hiding away. It’s about finding a balance where you can still be your awesome, helpful self without burning out. It’s about taking care of your own energy so you can keep being the amazing support system you are—without turning into a zombie.

Don’t Waste your Psychic Energy. Wait to be Asked for Advice

Hold up—before you jump in with your psychic two cents, remember it’s cool to chill and let others navigate their own chaos. They learn (on their own journey) and you conserve energy. Win-win!

Saying No is Okay (and it Helps!)

Guess what? It’s totally okay to pass on playing the psychic hero sometimes. Knowing when someone needs a nudge instead of a full-blown rescue mission is key to keeping your own energies in check.

Turn Down the Volume of Your Intuition

You don’t have to be on psychic high alert at all times (although maybe people mistakenly think you do). Instead, set your intention to keep your psychic abilities at a management level and allow them to turn up during times of emergency. 

Prioritize Self-Care and Recharge (It’s Not Selfish!)

Being all ears, all the time, for everyone’s vibes can be exhausting! Make sure you hit the pause button, indulge in some me-time, and recharge those psychic batteries.

Avoid Psychic Drain and Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

Even psychic superstars need a helping hand sometimes! If you’re feeling swamped, reach out. It’s cool, really—everyone needs a little backup now and then (and see below to learn who you can reach out to!)
