Psychic Training Games
- Find the Photo Game - Get 6 or so identical sized
photos, one of the child, one of a favorite relative, one of a friend, one
of a pet. Keeping them face down and separated, ask them to find the
one you name - of Auntie Sue or one of themselves, etc. (from Esp
For Kids book)
- What's in the Gift Box Game - Have them guess what
each birthday present is before opening.
- Coin Toss Guess - Toss a coin and have your child
guess which side landed up. Keep track. Consider offering prizes for
getting it right more than half the time.
- It's in the Cards - Using a standard deck of cards,
have the child guess whether each card is red or black. Then move on
to guessing suits or numbers. Keep track of correct guesses and praise
all correct guesses. Make a big deal about anything greater
than 50% accuracy.
- Holding the Bag - Put an item in an opaque bag, like
a brown lunch bag. Hold it out for them or put it on a table. Have
them put their hands on either side of the bag without touching it and
tell what sort of vibrations it has. For instance, they can say
anything like cold or hot, fuzzy or rough or smooth, metal, food,
etc. Praise anything they get right even if they don't guess the object.
- Guess the Color of the Marble - Choose a marble from
a bag and guess what color is is before opening your hand. As a more
advanced version, decide before choosing what colors you will pull out
and then try to get those. You can also use colored blobs of glass
that you can get inexpensively at aquarium stores or colored game markers.
- Get in Touch Game - Collect several pictures from
magazines or photographs that have one central image in each. Have
them put hands over or around the picture with their eyes shut and
guess what or who is in the photo.
- Energy Ball - Collect positive energy (chi) from all
around you in the air and compress it with your hands into a small
ball of pure energy. Start with a circumference of about 3 feet (beach
ball) and bring together to about a 4" softball. Pull and condense the
energy together. Repeat over and over. Each time feel the energy
building more and more. Feel the tingle. When you feet it, you can
toss it to someone. Play catch with it. If it starts to fall apart,
pull it together again. Teach children to build the energy ball themselves.
- Sensing the Energy Game - Rub hands together rapidly
about 10 seconds. Feel the tingle. Do it again, then hold your hands
facing each other. Feel the energy flow. Do it again and hold your
hands further apart - increase from 1 inch to 5 inches to a foot. Try
this with a partner and see how far away you can feel the energy from
their hands. Next, try standing behind a partner and rubbing your
hands together. Then holding your hands out, approach closer and
closer and see when they can feel the energy from your hands. Then try
the same thing, but touch them and then move away slowly, seeing how
many inches away they can feel you. Switch places and see how far away
you can feel your partner's energy. Try this with different partners -
like mom/dad/grandma/grandpa, friends. As you increase in sensitivity,
try feeling the energy without having to rub your hands together
- Weather Forecaster - Think about the weather for
each day in the next week or so. Without using any resources except
your gut feeling, guess what the weather will be like each day for the
upcoming week. Write it down and then compare your guesses to the
actual weather each day. You can also compare your guesses after
you've made them to the weather forecast on tv, newspapers or on
websites. (idea by Patrick Jordan)
- Psychometry Game - Hold an object in one clasped
hand. Sense the vibration of it. Let your mind wander over and into
the object. Using your imagination, say whatever comes to mind. Use a
tape recorder. If you have a group of friends around, have one of them
secretly hand you an item and try to figure out which one it is from.
- Feel the Light Vibration Game - Hold your hands
behind your back with palsm out. Another person shines a light,
preferably one iwth a small bright, tight, close beam, on ONE of your
hands. You guess which hand has the light one it by mentally seeing
yoru palms and deciding which is brightest. Wiggle a finger of the
hand with the light on it.
