Book Review: Meditations for Psychic Development: Practical Exercises to Awaken Your Sixth Sense by Chanda Parkinson

I’ve been a reading a lot more lately. It seems I’ve hit a quiet time in my life where I actually have enough stillness to pick up a book and read for hours on end. It may be due to the fact that I’ve had more meditation in my life, not that things have actually slowed down. I was drawn to this book as a way to expand my meditations. This book was perfect for that.

This book is divided into two parts. The first part is called ‘The Basics of Psychic Development’ and it dives right in with meditations to help you get to know yourself better. The author explains what each of the clairs are (clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, and claircognizance). She offers a short quiz on helping you sort out which might be higher for you. Then she offers a specific meditation to help you open a channel to tune in to that gift.

The second part of this book is called ‘Connect and Receive Information’. This part of the book expounds on tools you can use and how to interpret messages. The author also lays out meditations for special situations such as being in nature, dreamwork, past lives, and auras and energy. Each subject is given a good overview, a meditation, and prompts for journaling and reflection.

What I loved about his book is that it is not a cover to cover read it and forget it. This is the type of book that asks the reader to do some work and reflect on the journey. I admit to not having divulged the amount of time needed to do all the author’s suggestions. I have started it, and I plan to go back and invest the time to get the most of out this read.

Unless you plan to get an audio version of this book, I would suggest recording yourself reading the meditations and then use them by listening to yourself reading them while meditating. The guided meditations are detailed and most likely not something you will want to just read and then try to visualize. The details the author describes really helped in my meditations to take me to a calmer place and allowed me to try to reach out to tune in.

I think this book is a great start for those looking to expand their psychic abilities. I don’t know for sure that this will actually turn on psychic gifts for you, but I can say time in meditation is never wasted time. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in learning more about how and why meditating for psychic development is a good place to start.
