A common technique for psychic ability is to wake in the morning and lay there visualising the day ahead. Listen to your surroundings and listed to what you are thinking. In the Celestine Prophecy it states that if you think of something then there was a reason for it. Well if you think of something, a thought flashes in your head then do something with it.
Remember though that psychic ability is generally not used for your own personal gain, example - picking the winner of the next race or the lotto numbers. No psychic ability is a process that helps us through our daily lives. The ability can be calming or can be a warning.
Generally no danger comes with psychic ability but it is an awareness we must take heed of. To develop psychic ability listen to what you are being told, such as the thought that flashes in your head or that feeling you get when you think of something. It is listening to your thoughts that is the first step in developing your abilities.
To continue developing your psychic ability read as much on the subject you can. Search the internet for all things of a psychic nature. I am sure you will find something that refers to you and will provide you with the knowledge to continue developing your ability.
