Intuitiveness, Mr. Edward says, is something everyone is born with. And though not everyone can become a medium (“Mediums are born, not made”), anyone can learn to raise their intuitiveness to a higher level. It’s not easy. Mr. Edward maintains that work is involved, hard, life changing work which could possibly cause you to lose friends and alienate loved ones. Like I said, he is a realist. But, he maintains, if you are diligent and apply yourself, you will most likely succeed.
If you are interested in bettering yourself or, as he says, “becoming a better YOU” there are many ways you can go about it. He writes about developing your psychic energy, understanding psychic potential, using divination tools, and, if you want to eventually do readings, how to go about preparing for it. You can’t be lazy and you need to watch for pitfalls such as ego, which he also refers to as the Inner Monster. “The Inner Monster is the downfall of many metaphysical practitioners, professional psychics, and people with these intuitive abilities. These individuals believe they are the music when they are simply the instrument. The Monster is a creature within that will never allow its host to “see, hear, feel or experience anything that doesn’t stroke, encourage or worship its ego.” Obviously, humility is key.
He speaks of God, not as a religious figure but as a concept. When I asked how people react to this idea he replied, “With great warmth,” and thinks that these days people are more open to a spiritual, universal definition of a higher power.
He writes at length of spirit guides (or the Team), and how everyone has them, even those who don’t believe. “It’s like elements and molecules. You might not know what they’re called or understand them. But they’re still there. Your Team can’t do things completely for you, but if you listen and learn how it communicates with you, you will gain incredible insights.”
Obviously this sort of metaphysical thinking is not for everyone. But if you have the least bit of interest in the psychic realm, you’ll find delving into John Edward’s Infinite Quest an excellent way of learning more about it.
