Here’s a how to develop concentration and techniques to increase psychic energy. Exercise 1: relax, breathe deeply. Make your mind a blank. Decide where you would like to visit a place. Have a destination in mind. Create a pinpoint of light about nine inches above your forehead. Move toward that light. Go into to that pinpoint of light. Move the light gradually upward, out, beyond time and space. Then move the light into the sky and from there to the point you have chosen to be your destination. Let the light descend at its destination, allow yourself to look around, picking up thoughts, feelings, visions, and voices. Return using the same process. When you have come back to the starting point, make notes on what you sensed. Callers reach out to Barbara and she analyzes their life in the coming year based on their birthday and voice. Barbara helps callers learn to let go, face challenges up coming, make important decisions and find balance.
