How to do psychometry.
Begin by sitting quietly and relaxing.
Take a few easy breaths.
Take a ring and hold it in your hand. Maybe a ring belonging to a friend or relative. For this practice try to have the ring owner sitting with you so that they can verify what you 'pick up' from the ring.
Place the ring gently in the palm of your hand and feel what you feel. You may find that having your eyes closed will help.
What is this ring trying to tell you? What interesting information does this ring hold?
Every single object on this planet will hold the memory of where it has been and what it has done and with whom.
Place the ring in the palm of one hand and then place the palm of the other hand on top of it. Push your palms together slightly. Be careful with people's objects as they may be fragile.
Just go with the flow. Do not think too hard. Do not rush or struggle with this exercise. It should be easy.
Trust and believe in what you are picking up. Say the first things that come into your head. You may like to have pen and paper with you so that you can write things down.
You may receive the messages as images inside your mind. You may receive the messages as certain smells, perfume or beer. You may hear things inside your head.
Whatever happens is right for you.
You can do a similar exercise to the above, only use a key belonging to someone you know who can respond to your questions or messages.
It is not recommended to use a bunch of car keys or keys that have been used by more than one person.
Push the key hard into the palm of your hand and push your other palm on top of it. This method may help you to get 'messages' about the object.
A necklace or any other piece of jewellery can be good for psychometry. A very old piece of jewellery belonging to a grandmother or great-grandmother can 'tell' or hold many amazing stories. You could write a book simply by holding an object in the palm of your hand and getting messages from that object of where it has been and what the people wearing it have done. Amazing!
Maybe try running the chain through your fingers or just fiddling a little with the chain. Keep the object moving as this can help with getting messages.
A watch is also a very good 'tool' for psychometry. Most people will be wearing some kind of watch, ring or piece of jewellery. You simply ask them if they would mind you doing psychometry on it. Give it a whirl. Give it a try. Amaze your friends and family!
Again, relax, breathe gently, go into the quiet, quiet your mind and then wait to receive messages about the watch and who has been wearing it. You may see pictures inside your mind. You may, 'just know' something about the wearer. Keep practising.
If you know of someone who has some war medals then ask them if they would be willing to let you do psychometry on them.
I once used a beret belonging to someone who was a Royal Marine and I received the most amazing images inside my head. I saw people being parachuted over France and some were shot down, whilst others broke their legs on landing. A sad but very interesting sight.
I used to collect antiques and I had a little collection of very old goblets and another of very old keys, some of the keys were enormous, so you can imagine the size and type of door they would open!
A friend of mine wanted to know about psychometry and so I explained how to do it. He then asked for some objects to practice on and I showed him one of my very large keys and one beautiful and very elaborate goblet or drinking cup. He absolutely refused to do psychometry on either! He looked petrified. I am not sure if he was worried about what he might 'see' from an ancient cup or key or if he thought some horrible ghosts might appear any second now. Needless to say he quickly made his apologies and left the premises!
Honestly there is nothing to fear at all from doing psychometry on any object. In fact it can be very rewarding, amazing and even healing for the person who offers you the object.
Several years ago now, I was in Wales, walking along a hillside, when I came across some large standing stones.
One stone was upright and another, and extremely large was laid on top of the upright stone at one end and on the ground at the other end. A bit like a shelter, maybe. Next to the upright stone was another smaller slab or stone.
I placed my hand on the upright stone to 'see' what it would reveal to me. What I got amazed me! I felt that it was a 'birthing stone'. A women would come here to give birth. I wandered about the place and down the hill a little way was a tiny little church. I also picked up from the stone that the woman in labour would have been thought of as, 'unclean' and so she would have to give birth under this shelter with her back pushed against the 'birthing stone'. If the baby lived then it would have been taken to the little church to be baptised and if it had died then it would have been taken to the church for the burial service.
There was a plaque near this set of stones and although I cannot now remember what it said about the site I did not feel that what the writer supposed the stones were for was correct or what I had 'picked up' from the stones. The 'birthing stone' seemed to make much more sense to me not only because it was near the tiny church but also because of the way the stones were laid out. I really could imagine a woman pushing against the back stone while she gave birth and being sheltered from the elements by the giant stone over her head.
Why not give psychometry a try. You will be amazed at what messages you can get from mere objects.
