Chanda Parkinson, Meditations for Psychic Development, Llewellyn, 2021.
Do you want to develop your psychic skills? Learn how to quiet your mind and hone your visualization skills, suggests author Chanda Parkinson. In this vein, her Meditations for Psychic Development contains a collection of exercises meant to develop one’s intuition and sharpen some of the so-called “clairs:” clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance.
The key to psychic development, Parkinson suggests, is to be found in the chakra system and its hidden potential. Her formula is simple: grounding is the first step of this process. Next, formulate a question and follow her instructions for a meditation that will help you access your inner worlds. (Incidentally: since some of these visualizations are lengthy and difficult to remember, you may want to record them on your cell phone and play them as guidance). The last step of this process will entail journaling your experiences.
While the first half of the book is devoted to the discussion of how to develop the “clairs,” Meditations for Psychic Development also contains an array of information on related topics and techniques such as crystals; astrology; dowsing & scrying; dreamwork; breathwork; the Akashic records; numerology; oracles; the aura, and spirit guides. There is an embarrassment of riches in this book as well as a profusion of sound advice. Parkinson’s purpose is clear: By pointing her readers in different directions, she encourages them to identify their interests and aptitudes.
In conclusion: Meditations for Psychic Development provides a comprehensive introduction to psychic development at the beginner’s level. As such, this book is recommended for those who wish to explore possibilities and techniques as they find their feet in the field of metaphysics.
