Coming Out Of The Psychic Closet – 5 Ways To Make It Easier

Coming Out Of The Psychic Closet – 5 Ways To Make It Easier

There are many reasons and triggers that ignite a spiritual journey with the self. Traumatic and life-changing events often cause a ripple effect of synchronicities that send us on a whirlwind of self-discovery. Though this self-discovery we often find that in this world (and beyond) there is a lot more than meets the eye thus, the intuitive development begins.

Accepting that you could, in fact, be a psychic, medium, or some type of energetic healer is a big pill to swallow. For most of us it takes us decades to accept it and then we spend years in the closet trying to figure all of this out mostly on our own.

When you can really grasp the concept that this is who you are and what you were born to do then you may be so excited about all the magic happening that you just want to share it with someone special.

Whatever your reason for wanting to share it’s generally for most of us, a big-scary step. We become worried about how those around us will receive us. There are fears of being isolated, shunned, or looked at differently. The biggest fear is not being accepted for who we truly are. We are human and rejection of any type is scary no matter how tough you may be.

Imagine the pain and shame of finally accepting who you are, learning to love every aspect of yourself, and living completely as your authentic self. But what if someone you love told you that they do not accept you as you are?

So while this article is written to help those coming out of the “psychic closet” it can be applied to most anyone needing to come out of most any closet.

5 Ways To Make Coming Out Of The Psychic Closet Easier

First love who you are.

If you’re thinking about coming out then you have already completed the first step which is, admitting to yourself who you are. You have done something that some people spend their entire lives trying to do.

You have found out who you are and now you get to own it! Pat yourself on the back for being honest with yourself as scary as it may have been. This is who you are, love you, and lift you up. Tell yourself you’re proud of who you are on all levels physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

Remember, we set the tone for how others treat us by how we treat ourselves. Set yourself up for success!

Practice.

Give yourself plenty of time to practice your new skills. Build up a collection of validations, experiences, and magic moments that can be reminders to you of how beautiful this is and why you started in the first place.

How has this changed your life? How has this gift helped you to impact the lives of others? Has living more intentionally changed the way you flow and thus the way others around you flow?

What can you put in your treasure chest for a rainy day pick-me-up? What do you have for when someone asks you (and they will)…

Stock it away in a mental or physical diary so that you can remember all of those reasons you are here now.

Let it happen organically.

There is no rule that says you have to shout from the rooftops (or social media) that you are coming out of your closet. If you want to do that and for you, the best way is to rip off the band-aid then go for it! Do whatever you’re most comfortable with but know that it is ok to let it happen organically.

It happens organically by people seeing and acknowledging healthy changes in you. They then ask what you’re doing differently…This is your doorway – your gateway to gently speak your truth. Fill up your story with love, positivity, and leave the defensiveness behind.

Let word of mouth happen. Let people brag about you! It’s positive exposure for you and will help spread awareness at the same time.

Bottom line you don’t have to force it. There is no rule of thumb. Let it happen how it’s supposed to happen.

Accept others where they are.

They may not be ready for who you are. They may not believe that life can change with a little bit of faith and positivity. They may not believe in the other side or that you should be talking to the other side.

Let them be where they are. Accept them where they are just as you are asking them to accept you.

The best thing I can pass on to you is this: Think about how long it took you to accept who you truly are. Give others the time and space to do the same. It’s easy to get upset when your news is not received the way you would like but just accept where they are and let your light lead the way. Let them see the changes within you, actions ALWAYS speak louder than words.

Love them anyway. Be proud of yourself.

Love them even if they don’t accept you. Seeing a change in you might be scary to them because they were comfortable with how you were. Love them anyway.

Be proud of yourself. Be proud of yourself for the work you have done internally and the way you put yourself out there. It takes a lot of balls to be authentically you. Remember many people never truly meet themselves and here you are being open and honest about it!

If all else fails, do me a favor and ask yourself this one question:

“Am I willing to be uncomfortable again for the rest of my life to make others around me more comfortable?”

And then feel into your body. Feel how good it feels to be you…to accept you. Then and only then can you answer the question above.

Authentically Yours, Ashley
