Whether you call it a Psychic Gift or not, your ‘psychic-ism’ is a Psychic Ability. When you are given a gift, YOU are not charged for receiving that gift. A gift is given to a person to show them favoritism. A gift is given to honor you. The dictionary includes that a gift is a special ability or capacity, a natural endowment, or talent and that is what will be focus on today. Now, read that paragraph with the word psychic in front of the word gift. When you refer to your natural ability (that everyone is born with) as a psychic gift, you reference yourself as being given a psychic gift because you are being honored and favored with the psychic gift.
Breaking this down a bit more to understand the difference between a psychic gift or a psychic ability, let us look at the different definitions of ability. Most psychics will agree it is a spiritual honor to help other people by using their psychic talent. Very few would consider their psychic ability as a sign of favoritism, because we are all born with the capacity to be psychic. Our sixth sense as it is called is a natural endowment. The human species comes with it installed in their basic package at birth.
Psychic Gift vs Psychic Ability
Talented people in the world such as those with the natural endowment of musical talent (Rolling Stones, Garth Brooks, Beyonce, Tina Turner, and more), auto mechanics and Nascar drivers, plumbers and cabinet makers, architects, artists, and the list goes on, many use their natural endowment (talent, ability, gift) to support themselves and their families. They use what comes easy to them, what they enjoy, to make the necessary finances it takes to live in this modern world. Your ability is an activity or occupation suited to your skill, training, or other qualification, even when it is a natural talent.
After accepting your natural endowment or talent as an ability, your understanding of self empowerment begins to revel itself. Self empowerment is a simple term meaning you no longer allow others to tell you what you are or are not allowed to do with your natural ability. As long as you listen to others who tell you to give your abilities away free, you will never understand the power those folks are afraid that you will learn you have. They do not understand your natural ability, thus it is something they want to receive for free until they learn to exploit you or develop their own.
Psychic Gift vs Psychic Ability
My natural ability was cultivated, honed, and practiced while giving me insight to those people around me at the time. Then I decided I needed to stay home and raise my family, instead of having daycare employees who I didn’t know care for my little ones. I chose to use the talent I excelled in. My first 100 readings were given away free. I felt this would give me the practice (honing) that would help me become a professional. The woman who came to me the most often in those first 100 readings, continued to tell me it was a gift and I would surely lose the gift when I began to charge for it. This philosophy of losing your gift via charging for it, I have come to discover, is merely an old wives tale.
Twenty years later, my natural ability has become more defined. My connection to Spirit is stronger. My children grew up to embrace their own natural talents. Are my children talented in psychic abilities? Yes! Do they use their psychic abilities for their daily income? No. One is a hairstylist and she uses energy work on her salon giving it a peaceful atmosphere after gossipy clients come for their appointments. Other daughters work as waitresses, cooks, and design furniture. These occupations come easy to them. They work with what I have taught them, and have bloomed in their own field. You can too. Whether you decide to use your psychic ability as part time income or decide to do it full time, do your best at all times and be honest with your readings. Keep in mind there must always be an exchange of energy, be it in monetary form or just that you left with joy in your heart from that experience.
Be Happy, Healthy, and Wealthy in all things you do.
