Lately, I have had several people ask me how I have developed certain extrasensory skills. My answer is always my development has been from birth. I think the biggest facilitator has always been was my imagination and in saying this, there have been so many times in my life that I thought I was just “imagining” things to find out that they were completely correct (that is a story for another time). I hold the same belief as Einstein that the world is pretty dull and void if our imaginations are not involved. Think of how many famous or well known people have used their individual creativity and imaginations to create whole other worlds for us to indulge in together as a society. In a sense, imagination is what makes us extrasensory within humanity. If you involve enough people in one person’s vision, you end up with things like Tesla’s free energy towers or in our current reality electricity. Books and television series, take us to magical far away lands that tug at a specific unified field within all of us. This pathway is the same one I have been using to channel and foresee different synchronicities within the universe.
As a little girl, my mother was a huge part in allowing these intuitive parts within me to grow. She would “make” my brother and I go outside for at least an hour a day, which we really came to love. Playing outside everyday in a big back yard created an amazing connection with nature, I started noticing the patterns in nature were synchronistic to life and became extremely sensitive to weather patterns. She would encourage us to pretend and use our imaginations in everyday life. Ordinary moments became extraordinary moments with pretending. The pretending has allowed for an amazing ability to visualise anything I would like to manifest. She would also pray with me every single night. I think that this prayer practice has been one that allows me to connect to the center of the universe or as some would call it God. The prayer was very simple: Name to God everything you are thankful for and feel it in your heart as a warm fuzzy sensation. Pray for God to protect the people you love, never forgetting to including your “enemies” (in my case the girl or boy who made fun of me in class). This practice taught me about resonance, that the energy that we are constantly in or to say it in another way the majority of what we are feeling actually multiplies and creates our reality. Simply expressing gratitude and unconditional love once a day can be such a powerful life changing practice.
As a pre-teen the major influence for eight years, in which I attended a summer camp for a month to three months. It was located in the North Carolina mountains and this strengthened my connection with nature even more. Our cabins were were build with ply-wood, screens to keep the bugs out and a tin roof to keep us dry. I loved listening to the crickets going to bed, the rain on the tin roof and the warm dew waking up in the mornings to the sunrise. The most significant change was with my camp councillor when I was ten years old, she would sneak a small group of girls into the woods by a magical mountain stream every few days. As we would walkthrough the mystic mountain trails she would tell us the folklore of the faerie realm that the spirits of the elementals were all around if we just listened. She would bring nets, mason jars and other wares to catch the faeries and nature spirits. She would bring flutes and drums, we would dance splashing in the water laughing the afternoon away. I used to build little villages for them out of sticks, acorns, moss and leaves. This was the point in my life when I started connecting to the other dimensional realms. The trees started to tell me their stories, the animals each had a lesson and the plants told my they could help heal my wounds. Around this time my mother was also an actor in the Carolina Renaissance Festivals and I fell in love with the time of ole, the faeries, the folklore and the mystical world ever more! My world, the one in my head, was pure magic!
There was trouble paradise though, because I was different than most, I was bullied quite a bit. All of the positive energy seemed to switch when my parents started fighting around the age of nine until their divorce at age fourteen. My imagination became a constant balancing act and sometimes much needed escape. I had a safe place meditation that I still do sometimes today. At summer camp I was told that I was worshipping something evil because it was a Christian camp. I knew in my heart, that I had a gift that was talked about in the bible. I had this splendor for all of creation and this feeling moving through my heart like a cool mountain stream which is how I always pictured the “holy spirit” running through you would feel like. This feeling of creator and pure consciousness flowing through me still is with me today. I attended private Christian school from grade four to six, I played by myself the majority of the time. When I merged to public school around the age of twelve while other girls were starting to go on movie dates with guys and explore the their sexuality, I was too involved in wanting to play with the faeries and pretending and connecting to the outdoors.
As I merged to public school my best friend at the time who I still pretended with, disowned me; afraid that if the other school mates found out she was still pretending that she would no longer be popular. That day started my “nerd” legacy, she decided to write down, “One Hundred Reasons Why Not to Like Jocelyn Daher” and passed it around to the entire school. Everyday as I got on the bus to go home I was made fun of they shouted names like faerie girl and baby. With all of the bombarding hardened energy in the world, I just went deeper into my practices of bonding with nature. I could “call in” a snowstorm when I wanted time away from school in the winter. All I had to do was pray for a snow day and the weather seemed to match my emotions.
I used to be so analytical that I would have constant panic attacks at the age of twelve. At that age, I would see apparitions constantly in my house, I could feel the pain of others, along with visions flashing before my eyes of what they had gone through in their life and I would have prophetic dreams. I thought I was all alone, until one day when I was twelve a girl with long black hair, completely black clothing and looks to kill ( the opposite of my super upbeat and friendly disposition) came walking into my science class and sat next to me. With all of our seeming differences, I of course started talking to her because I could feel that she was keeping something secret like me. Sure enough, the universe had sent me a person that although appeared to be completely different from me on the outside; couldn’t have matched my abilities more on the inside. This was the start of the most beautiful friendship I have ever had to this day. With her, I continued to be able to work with the faerie realm, decode my dreams, talk about my feelings of intuition and empathy, read astrological charts, talk about philosophy and explore what it meant to live in a world that was not completely narrated for you, the bizarre and often untravelled road.
When people ask me how I enhance my intuitive skills, I will tell them; it is and always will be keeping the wonderment and humble heart of a child. Be open to being non-judgement always, be open to the unknown, allow yourself to believe in magic and miracles. These are the real life constructs of my constant reality. I have NEVER needed any type of psychedelic (although maybe I will have the courage to try one or two one day), my world is already holographic and always has been.
You have been told that logical processes are what got humanity where they are today. You have to ask yourself just like I do, is the logical mind really serving us? It has always been the absurd, the unthinkable and bizarre mind that has brought our consciousness and society to another level of existence. When you listen to the deepest part within you; you tune into same radio station of all of the greatest minds in history to bring forth through your unique imagination a completely different world.
If I were to tell someone how to do to become extrasensory, it would be as easy as this: Open your heart to the everyday magic all around you, soon you will start to see it.
