There are three basic modalities of perception. They are the visual (through the eyes), the auditory (through the ears) and the kinesthetic (through bodily sensation, including smell and taste). Most of us are dominant in one or two of these modalities.

Your dominant modality will greatly affect how you perceive things psychically. Visual people are more clairvoyant, auditory people more clairaudient and kinesthetic people more empathic.

Have you ever attempted to increase your psychic ability, but felt blocked and couldn't figure out why? Perhaps you've tried using a particular tool or technique and found that you could not seem to "connect." It could be that you were just working with one of your weaker modalities.

If you want to know which psychic modality is your dominant one, simply take a look at your creative interests. What kind of art have you enjoyed making the most? Do you prefer to create things that involve sight? Hearing? Touch or movement? The activities that are most enjoyable to you are the ones that come from your dominant modality.

You can stimulate your psychic modalities through the pursuit of creative activities. Pursuing a creative activity that is geared for a certain modality can improve the psychic ability that corresponds with it. To make yourself more clairvoyant, take photographs, draw and paint. To make yourself more clairaudient, sing, play music and write poetry. And to make yourself more empathic, take a pottery class, a dance class or even a cooking class.

Psychic oracles and divination tools work best when you gear them toward your dominant modality. If you are clairvoyant, Tarot cards, crystal balls and mirror scrying will be easiest for you. If you are clairaudient, you will be more verbal and may strengthen your psychic hearing via stichomancy, automatic writing or meditative mantras. And
you can increase your empathic ability by using stones, pendulums and runes.

If you want to get the maximum effect for the least amount of effort, try making your own divination tools. You could make your own Tarot cards, runes or, or meditation tapes. Plus, when you put your own personal energy into the making of a divination tool, you build a strong relationship between you and it.

Once you take an active and creative role in cultivating your dominant modality, your psychic ability will open up much more easily! And when one modality opens up, it becomes easier to open the others. If you start with what comes naturally for you, eventually, you can make all your modalities work together in harmony!
