6 Herbs for Improving Your Psychic Abilities

Guest Post by Tom Petruno, Herbalist

Are you having a psychic block?  

Are you looking to improve your clairvoyance with herbs?  

Do you need to become grounded with the energy of the earth?

Plants have a wonderful way of fortifying our connection with energetic realms not of our own. Inherently, they are able to boost your energy to bring it closer to those of Spirit, Loved Ones, and Angels. Since the beginning of time plants and humans have united together. We have evolved with one another to work cooperatively.

All plants have this capability, however there are some that can be more effective than others. Below, I list some of my favorite herbs to improve your psychic abilities.

Friendly, non-high inducing herbs to help give you clarity in your psychic abilities. 

6 Herbs for Improving Your Psychic Abilities

1. Ginger

Ginger turns your body into a conduit through which spirit energy is able to flow. It warms the body and makes it visible to those trying to connect from the other side. A great thing about ginger is that it has a multitude of uses and is delicious. Fresh ginger root doesn’t last long in our house because I throw it into just about any preparation. Syrup, Banana Bread, any meat dish, it is pretty much great in everything. Make it into a tea by using dried organic ginger root! I like to use ginger in combination with other herbs. Even though it makes your body into an antenna to receive spirit messages, it doesn’t necessarily prepare you to process them, which leads me to. . .

2. Gotu Kola

This herb is great in conjunction with ginger. Gotu Kola prepares your mind to be able to decipher the messages you are receiving. The information that you get from spirit is overwhelmingly powerful. Gotu Kola allows your brain to handle the immense load, process it, and send it to where it needs to go to be manifested.

3. Wood Betony

Once a message comes to you and has been processed by the brain it is sent to your clairaudient or clairvoyant centers (maybe both, depending on your strongest spiritual senses) to manifest with you. This is when you will hear or see the message. Wood Betony strengthens the throat chakra and clears your channel to receive.

4. Ginkgo

Ginkgo works in a similar fashion to wood betony however it deals specifically in your clairvoyant center, where you will see the message. This herb will allow the image to be very clear and lucid.

5. Skullcap

You may be receiving, hearing and seeing messages, but if your mind is not at ease you may not be capable of separating out the actual message that is delivered with that of the messages from your own ego. Skullcap puts your mind at rest and lets the information flow organically and the messages to be understood as they are intended. Having too active of a mind while connecting to spirit will devolve into poor communication back and forth and potential cause you to not receive your messages properly.

6. Elder leaf, flower, and berries

In addition to all of the herbs above, I recommend using elder leaf, flowers, and berries in connecting with spirits of the earth like fairies and gnomes.

Naturally, there can be many different causes for a poor connection to the spirit realm.  All the chakras are infinitely important in establishing a healthy transmission back and forth, establishing a healthy chakra system is of core importance for psychic work.

Herbs are inherently looking to work with you on improving your psychic abilities and have a host of other benefits, from all aspects of health and wellness. Psychic prowess is just the start. Respect and admiration for these plants will jump start your journey into unworldly realms.

To begin working with any of the herbs in the post, you may purchase the dried herb varieties, preferably organic, and steep them as a loose tea, either individually or combined.
