Winter is quickly closing in. The leaves are falling, grasses are dying back, animals are preparing to hibernate. Prana is less abundant. Winter is a period of dormancy is part of the natural cycle of the Earth. Because of this, winter is a difficult time to maintain your spiritual practice. This is not new information, but it is something we seldom think about. But if you keep awareness of the reasons you feel less spiritual, you can counteract these effects.
So, how do you make it through winter months without losing your energy and spirituality?
The best way to beat the winter blues is to stay focused on your spirituality by working on your sixth sense. The sixth sense is the bridge to dimensional consciousness and will provide you with concrete feedback and progress to get you through the winter months.
1. Practice psychic readings
This is a fun way to exercise your sixth sense and get out of the house! Go to a local coffee shop and practice psychic readings. Make a list of questions before you head out to make it easier to get started. Choose a person who looks like they will be sitting still for a few minutes and quickly answer all the questions on your sheet based on your first impression or feeling of the person.
When you approach the person to check your accuracy, say something like, “Hi, I’m not a psychic but I’m doing some research on the existence of psychic abilities, but I was wondering if you could look over my answers and see if I got anything correct?”
This takes the pressure off so you can have fun with it. Be sure to mark every correct or even partially correct answer as a hit. You will be amazed at how quickly you accuracy improves.
2. Investigate a haunted house
Most hauntings are reported in the winter months when the sun begins to hide behind clouds and the weather becomes damp and cold. Do some research on your town. Where are the notorious haunted locations? Winter is the ideal time to check them out.
Be respectful of rules and personal property. Don’t break in after hours or trespass on private property for the sake of your investigation. On the other hand, if it is a hotel or other public business, don’t be shy about asking to take a look around.
Practice your assimilation skills to expand your perceptions. We all tend to see things from a very human perspective. When you reach higher states of consciousness, you lose a lot of data because you have to bring that data down and process it through your human mind. Practicing assimilation will enhance your sixth sense and teach you a new language, the language of energy.
Assimilating animals is an easy and fun way to get started. Animals have the same five senses as humans, but they utilize their sensory differently than humans. For example, bats navigate and locate insects using sound. Cats can see in almost complete darkness. And butterflies have taste receptors on their feet. How does it feel to have different sensory?
4. Play cards
This is a fun way to improve your sixth sense on a snowy day. Shuffle a deck of cards and hold the deck face down. Now, try to sense whether the card on top of the deck is red or black. Go with your first instinct. Flip it over. Then make one pile of cards for correct guesses and one pile for incorrect guesses and see what your percentage is. When you practice with this, you will find that the number of cards that you “guess” correctly increases. This is a great way to visually see the effectiveness of your Sixth Sense.
When this becomes easy for you, increase the difficulty by trying to sense the suit of the card: hearts, diamonds, spades or clubs.
These exercises will help you get through the winter slump. Use them to keep up your spirituality and by the time spring arrives and prana once again reaches out for you, you will be surprised by how much you have advanced spiritually.
