One of the best ways to develop your psychic skills is to practice ‘psychometry’.
It's thought that every object holds impressions of the people who have owned and handled it. Psychometry is the art of ‘reading’ those impressions.
Ask some of your friends to loan you articles to practice on. Jewellery or watches are ideal, since metal retains the impressions better than cloth or plastic.
Preferably the articles should not be things which belong to the friends in question if you know them very well, as this would colour your judgement. It's better if the articles belong to someone else that they know so you can check the results.
Hold the article in your hand, and focus on the thoughts and impressions that come into your mind. Try to build up a picture of the person to whom it belongs. You should ask yourself questions. For instance, do you feel that the owner is a man or a woman? Are they young or old, happy or sad, tall or short? Don’t dwell on any of the questions too long or your imagination will start to interfere.
What comes into your mind may be no more than a series of disjointed mental pictures, but make a note of every image, as most, if not all of them will relate to the owner of the object. It’s as if you were tapping into the person’s mind and picking up impressions of things connected with them – people, place, or events.
It’s also interesting to experiment with very old objects such as stones from historic sites, coins or any ancient artefacts you can get your hands on. With these, the impressions will be not so much of individuals as of the times with which those objects were connected.
If the object has belonged to more than one person, the impressions you will pick up will probably be confused. The most recent owner, or the one with the strongest personality, is the one you will pick up on most strongly.
