Product Description

From Amazon

Based heavily on the work of Lewis Bostwick, founder of the Berkeley Psychic Institute, Basic Psychic Development is a complete learning system for would-be psychics. Rather than closing oneself to outside energies, Friedlander's system encourages an open, playful approach to experiencing the energies around us with new tools like auras, chakras, and clairvoyance. While the premise of Basic Psychic Development is to advance awareness, understanding, and control over one's psychic abilities, the ultimate goal is individuation--owning one's identity--something more valuable than any psychic ability. --Brian Patterson

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Informative March 10 2003
This book contains a lot of great basic information and numerous exercises for expanding your psychic awareness. Also, the descriptions of the various chakras are excellent. I had no idea for example that we all have hand and feet chakras, as well as four chakras above and below us. I also discovered each person's aura is quite complex with several different layers that correspond to each chakra.
The book's first chapter starts off not surprisingly with grounding exercises, running earth and cosmic energy. Always good to start with basics. The next chapter discusses the various chakras. Subsequent chapters discuss topics like distinguishing your energy from others, cords and how to "dissolve" them, "screens," aura layers and repairing them if needed.
I found the book along with all the various exercises, to be fascinating and plan to refer to it often in the future as I expand my psychic awareness.

5.0 out of 5 stars In what do you believe? March 19 2002
By "bwess"
I was looking for a way to develop an awareness of myself, especially the part of me I knew was truly magical and beyond the simple level of the physical. I was always asking "In what do I really believe?" I am finding that the "tools and patterns of practice" that are offered in John and Gloria's book "Basic Psychic Development" (and a little humor) have assisted me in finding that mystical side and connecting to that side to enrich my daily life. I have found the magic for myself and will continue to use those "tools." Others around me after reading the book are also experiencing success in finding who they are and in what they believe. Thank you John and Gloria!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done and Easy to Follow March 18 2002
I found the book to give great insight into the use of one's psychic abilities. It leads the reader step-by-step into the most important aspects of psychic development. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about developing their psychic abilities. Having been a practicing psychic for over thirty years I found this to be a wonderful work of art. Using this book can help a person the beginner, and adept alike. It is filled with practical wisdom that is usable and easily understood. The language of this book is clear and concise again making it easy to use and practice. I urge my friends to buy this book, and I use it my self having remarkable results.

3.0 out of 5 stars All The Information One Needs March 14 2002
By A Customer
While this book does provide a lot of information, I found it to be tedious and technical in its presentation. The author provides only one way to do each exercise and each reads more as a cooking recipe than an inspired guide to psychic and spiritual awakening. (The author literally prescribes mixing 90% cosmic energy with 10% earth energy during your meditation!) It's a good addition to a library on psychic development but I found it limited in its usefulness for day-to-day use, especially for someone just beginning their journey.

This book is an excellent reference. As a clairvoyant, I found information well organized and the exercises perfect for beginning pshychic development. This book will stay on my shelf for years to come. I have already shared it with others. Thank you John and Gloria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extrememly helpful, wonderful information June 2 2001
By Pamela
I have been studying various areas of metaphysics for over 20 years and the information in "Basic Psychic Development" is truly some of the most useful and helpful that I have come across. And because of its simplicity, it is good for both the beginner as well as the non-beginner. The journey can be as basic and simple or as colorful and deep as each person chooses it to be. The techniques work for any level of approach. However, as the authors lightly remind you, a sense of humor is always helpful.
"Basic Psychic Development" provides basic, useful instruction about our energy fields and centers in an easy to understand format, with a lightness that is sometimes difficult to find in books about this subject. The techniques that John and Gloria have expertly written about in this book have facilitated my psychic development, but for me, more importantly, they have helped me to clear out a lot of unwanted "stuff", energetically speaking. Which often reflects on the physical level, as well.
This is information that I personally wish had been available to me as a child. I recommend this book to those who would like a hands on, no mumbo jumbo approach to psychic development and clearing tools. And for the advanced practitioner, my experience is that it can only enhance whatever system one is already using.
I have purchased this book for a number of people, the two most important being my own children. I feel it is a must-have for the personal library.
Thanks, John and Gloria....

I enjoy the book. I met Gloria and found out that she offers classes. The classes (based on the book) are wonderful. You can pick up the book and do the lessons without a teacher, but it made it all the more exciting for me. This book is a fun and easy way to unlock your psychic abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Psychic Development March 12 2001
The word "practical" easily applies to this book--much like one of John Friedlander's other books, The Practical Psychic. This book is full of down-to-earth and literally "connecting to the earth" advice about living in a physical world with more awareness that you ever imagined possible. Beginning exercises include grounding and running earth and cosmic energies complete with helpful diagrams and full explanations of each step. The reader quickly graduates to exercises directed at cleansing the chakras, learning easy and simple techniques to clear energy blocks, past, present and future. Next comes helpful advice for distinguishing personal energy from the energy of others. Awareness leads to the ability to cleanse the chakras of "stuck" energy and shed the intrusion of other's energies. Once the reader has bookmarked and practiced these exercises over and over, a sense of freedom, lightness and clarity rarely achieved in a lifetime is the expected result. The reader is ready to move on to achieving a profound place within to connect with Higher Self, your God of the Heart. With a sense of humor throughout, the reader can finally gain access to "a gentle state of neutrality, one of the most powerful and effective tools for dealing with difficult situations," the core of the entire practice. Neutrality is not the absence of emotions, but rather it is "an opening up to the complexity, subtlety, and multidimensionality of emotions and experience." Eventually the reader is able to find an increase in compassion, both personal and for others. This compassion leads to a state of forgiveness, both for yourself and for others, and the creation of a place of gentle acceptance of the self and the absence of blame and guilt. Add this book to your tool kit for forging a new self for practical living in the new millennium.
