"MANY OF THE PSYCHIC ABILITIES AND POWERS resident within man are conservative in nature and intended only for specific purposes. They are limited to certain channels of expression; and until these channels are opened, they do not manifest. In them is an invaluable power of mental and psychic development. When properly used, it is of the utmost value. However, it would be of little value if it were to manifest itself constantly. If all day long this faculty were to impress upon the outer consciousness, a premonition of what is about to occur, every moment would be filled with the impressions of portending events. Mental poise and the ability to relax and rest, as well as the time for thinking and judging, would be upset. The mind would become an unbalanced mass of involved mental impressions. Soon the value of the intuition would become negative, and we should prefer its total absence." [Dr. H. Spencer Lewis, F.R.C., (RC digest, July 1985)]
To be psychic simply means being aware beyond the usual range of the usual or ordinary physical five senses - a sixth sense of things non-observable. Seeing or knowing with the Mind as opposed to seeing with the five physical senses. Knowing without limitations or constraints of Time and Space. Psychic forces are scalar forces.
"(Q) What is the exact means or method by which I can consciously reach the divine power or psychic force that is within me and draw upon it for the knowledge, strength, power and direction to accomplish great deeds that will bring about desired ends?
(A) This lies latent, of course, within self. First find deep within self that purpose, that ideal to which you would attain." [Cayce 2533-1]
"Each one who has a soul has a psychic power -" Cayce (5392-1)
"Don't be afraid to acknowledge that you see fairies as you study, for you will nurture these experiences. Don't be afraid to say that you see the gnomes which would hinder peoples at times." [Cayce 5359-1]
(Q) "Is there any particular psychic faculty which I should develop in this experience that would enrich my daily life?"
(A) "As has been indicated, this may be developed in the manner as has been given. It is the heritage of each soul. If ye in thine own consciousness are desirous of meeting Him, thy Maker, thy Father in the temple of thine own soul, then meditate upon Him, applying that ye know today!
"For it is in the application, not the knowledge, that the truth becomes a part of thee.
"It is not in thine body that what ye eat is thy body, but that the body - through thy digestive self - puts INTO USE IN muscle, bone, blood, tissue, - yea the very blood and the very streams through which the mentality flows! Thy BRAIN is not thy mind, it is that which is used by thy mind!
"What then IS thy mind? The gift of God, that is the companion with thy soul, that is a part of same! Then if ye would develop that by its use, by its application, it is ministering good and goodness; not for self. For that ye give away ALONE do ye possess! For he that would have life must give it. He that would know the faculties of the psychic force, or the soul, must MANIFEST same in the relationships to spiritual truths, spiritual law, spiritual application." Cayce (826-11)
"Each soul is a portion of the Divine, and that portion is the psychic or soul force which seeks expression. In the material plane there are expressions of beauty, of love, of patience, of hope, of long suffering, that are the attributes of the psychic forces or soul forces in this material plane." [Cayce 531-7]
