9.3 – Developing Psychometry

It’s a skill we all have that we all can learn to do. The ability to sense or feel residual energy about a person that has worn it. We can access psychic information about a person for example from a piece of jewellery they have worn. Also with practise you can sense items or objects that hold residue energy like an historical object from the past. For example a sword used in medieval battle will hold an imprint of the person who first forged it right up to its last owner. Energy is energy and can never be destroyed only converted. This article describes four exercises that will test and then help develop your psychometry skills. The first exercise is a psychic warm-up exercise. Do this exercise first and remember to relax when you do all the exercises. Also, be patient. Some people get amazing results immediately, while others may have to spend some time before gradually developing their psychic abilities.

You may find it easier to practice these psychometry exercises with a friend. This will allow you to test each other. You can also encourage and congratulate each other as you make steady progress as well as giving each other immediate feedback. You may wish to record all these exercises onto a piece of paper, phone/voice recorder or even onto video. That way you can review the exercises and your results to improve. First find your non dominant hand, most agree this is the best hand to hold or touch the object with to get the best information. Others may find working with both hands and just the dominant hand is the best for them. Trust yourself and try all methods until you find one that works best for you. Remember with psychometry you can use all your clairs and physical touch but also to a lesser extent sight. The brain and analytical will kick in if you just use sight and take you away from your intuitive senses. Others may use there psychic (clairs) hearing, smell, and taste to gather information about the object or person.

Psychometry Exercise 1 – Warm-up

Sit down in a comfortable chair. Ensure you are in a room where you won’t be disturbed, and the phones turned off or on silent. Have something at hand which you wish to psychically read via touch. It’s best to start with small objects that you can easily hold in your hands. Good objects are handwritten letters or cards, a piece of jewellery, a watch, a key, or anything with some history. A recently purchased or acquired item is not a good choice because it won’t have as much time and energy build up. Also it’s best to read objects loaned to you by someone you don’t know. That ensures that they can give you feedback without you having any preconceived thoughts. You will find it easier if you close your eyes while doing this exercise and tuning into it. You can look at it after you have written down your initial thoughts. Pick up an item and hold it with both hands.

What thoughts, images and feelings come to mind? Don’t rush. Stay relaxed. Don’t try to interpret or analyse these psychic impressions. Don’t try and force impressions. Trying too hard will let you go into your analytical instead of your intuitive. If you try and force results you will probably get absolutely nothing. If, after a few minutes, you don’t feel that you have got any impressions then just try again another day with a different item. In the initial stages of your development you may be more sensitive on some days more than others. Some objects may hold stronger vibrations than others. Write or record any impressions or feeling you may get no matter what the message, don’t censor it with your mind just write them down.

 Psychometry Exercise 2

Take a moment to centre yourself with breathe. Do the warmup exercise if you can. When you are ready, close your eyes or wear a blindfold. Ask a friend to hand you a item that belongs to them or someone else. Hold the item in both hands. Take your time, then say out aloud what you are receiving. Say what you sense even if it feels strange or even feels wrong at the time, don’t censor the information. You may even think that you are making things up, but just keep going. Get feedback at the end of this exercise, not after each item that you read. Waiting until the end will ensure that you don’t get discouraged by any ‘misses’ during the exercise. Try this exercise with as many different people and objects as you can. You may find that sometimes you can read objects easily while at other times you receive absolutely nothing. Don’t worry about not getting information spot-on either and it may take some time to develop but keep persisting and you will grow in confidence and ability.

 Psychometry Exercise 3

This is a very difficult exercise. Don’t get disappointed if you don’t get any initial results. Start with your warm-up exercises again. Then, ask a friend to put out several items on a table spaced apart. Turn your back while they are doing this. Ask your friend to pick up just one item and hold it for 1 minute. While they are holding the item your friend must picture that all his or her energy is flowing from their mind and body out through their fingers and into the object. They must do this with all their heart and soul and spend a minute or two doing this. Have them replace the energised item with all the other items. Ask your friend to turn around so that you can’t see them and hence get any clues from their reactions. This is very important. Now you turn back around and place your hand just above and over each object in turn without touching it. You should feel your friend’s energy more strongly on the item they just held because they have energised it more than on any of the other items on the table. Identify the held item and ask your friend to confirm that you have chosen the correct item.

 Psychometry Exercise 4

This is another difficult worthwhile exercise that can help you increase your psychometry. Again, start with your warm-up exercise. Ask a friend to handwrite several short notes while you are blindfolded or not looking. Use a separate piece of paper for each note. They only need to write one or two sentences per note. The notes can be about any topic. They should write something truthful on all but one of the notes. The odd-one-out note should tell a blatant lie, for example, “My name is Mary” when her real name is Susan. Ask your friend to fold each note in half and place it in a bowl so you can’t read it. Mix the notes around. Without looking pick out each note and feel its energy. Don’t read the note! Try and identify the note that contains the lie. You may need to feel the notes several times to note the difference between them. Depending on your individual reactions the ‘lie’ may feel cooler or warmer or it may make your hands tingle or any other reaction that makes it somehow feel different from the others. You will need to be aware of all your reactions and note which one stands out as being different. Ask your friend to confirm that you have chosen the correct note. Your psychometry skills will improve each time you practice these exercises.
