One of the main reasons I made this site was to talk about the connection of psychology and the Occult. It is only fitting that I would get into the psychic part of the Occult, because that is directly linked to psychology and the mind.
So today I’d like to do a short review on a book called Psychic Development 101 by Laurie Barraco. This is a huge topic in the Occult community. Psychic Development is so important because it’s development helps the magician connect with their Holy Guardian Angel, which in my opinion, is the Higher Self within the Collective and Individual Unconsciousness.
So with all that in mind, let’s look at Psychic Development 101 and see if it is a book worth buying!
Psychic Development 101 Review
Name- Psychic Development 101
Author- Laurie Barraco
Where to buy- https://themysticalmoonstore.com/
Overall Rating- 4.5 out of 5 stars
Pros- covers a wide variety of topics, easy read, short read, authored by a psychic who has helped thousands of people
Cons- My biggest is that it goes over reincarnation and I personally am not a fan of reincarnation. That being said, that is a personal issue, so if you don’t mind learning connections to reincarnation, then this wouldn’t be a con for you!
Develop your Inner Psychic!
in this book you are taught the most important things of developing your psychic abilities. We all have them, we just have to learn how to work and develop them over time. The goal of this book is to do just that!
It’s important to realize that even though most, if not all people, do have psychic abilities, many do not know how to use them, or how to develop it enough to use it. That is the beauty of this book! It gives you the knowledge to do it, and then you have to take the next step and do it yourself, as with anything of course.
I will leave a video below for your viewing to learn more about how everyone has an inner Psychic!
This book was not written by some random person who likes to study Magick, but is also not known as a psychic. This book was written by a woman who is actually known for her psychic abilities. She is in the position to be able to teach others on how to develop those abilities, and use the in their own magick practices and more.
According to her biography, she actually started out as a paralegal, and was unfilled with that job, so she set out to work on her psychic abilities. One of the reasons I like her style is because she is also a spiritual adviser. That is something we do not have a lot of these days since people are drifting away from spirituality. I believe this is a tragedy of our modern society, and it’s nice to see there are still people who believe we need that.
More than just Reading the Future
Another reason I like this book is because it goes over much more than just reading the future and all the typical idea of what we have about psychic abilities, because there is much more to psychic abilities than that. Perhaps my favorite part about the book is that it deals with spirit guides and angels.
In my opinion, searching for answers by reaching out to your inner self, your higher power, the Holy Guardian Angel, is key to living a successful and mystic life. You may not always feel it is successful, but if you are listening to your Holy Guardian Angel, than you are probably going to be successful, even when you feel you are failing.
That is why I speak so highly of Psychic Development 101. It deals with the topic of angels and contacting them! If you would like to learn more about that, and the Holy Guardian Angel, check out the post I did covering that topic!
It also deals with Meditation, which is something else I really like. Meditation is an important part of the Occultist life, be it a meditative state while doing a ritual, Qi-Gong, Yoga, or just meditation in general, it is vital. Meditation helps the Student to center their focus and create a hypnotic state of mind in which the floodgates of the unconscious can be opened and change can begin to occur!
Good Price of Quality Knowledge
Sometimes I really hate the cost of books. Especially those that deal with Magick, the Occult, or anything that goes over those topics. Some books you can expect to be upwards of 100 dollars or more! That is ridiculous if you ask me.
This book is under 16 dollars! That is pretty cheap for books that you can expect to pay around 25 dollars for. This is especially true considering the author is known for her ability to communicate with the spirits, and helping people out, especially down in the Floridia area.
What she talks about in this book is vital as well. This is something I think everyone should be reading, and it’s an easy read! She really tries to make it user-friendly, because she knows that there are going to be people who are new to developing their psychic ability, and they are not going to understand things like Astral Planes unless you are able to explain what you mean by that.
So it is user-friendly, and it is not a terribly long read. You could read this book in about a day or two, depending on how fast you read. I would not suggest that, but it is possible. I actually suggest taking it one chapter at a time, and learning from that chapter, meditating upon it, and doing something it may have went over. That way you actually get the most of the book!
Conclusion- Psychic Development 101
Yeah it is definitely worth the money! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is studying the Occult or Magick in general! It’s informative, helpful, and easy to read. This is definitely something that would be good for any of the beginners but also something that more advanced students can check out as well!
