In Teen Psychic, award-winning author Julie Tallard Johnson provides a fun, meaningful process for developing your intuitive powers, as well as practical guidance in applying those powers to your personal spiritual journey. The wisdom teachings of numerous traditions blended with activities--such as meditations, exercises, journalizing, and quizzes--will help you tap into a reservoir of inner strength and knowledge, increasing your confidence and self-esteem.
Ancient stories and contemporary teen experiences of spiritual and intuitive empowerment, as well as the author's own insightful narrative, show you how to connect to your inner wisdom and to the greater wisdom that surrounds you. With inspiring quotations from a diverse group of wisdomkeepers including Caroline Myss, Black Elk, Anodea Judith, Myron Eshowsky, and Chögyam Trungpa, Teen Psychic helps you discover your true nature by accessing your intuitive powers and developing your psychic self.
There was a time when young people were routinely taught how to develop their intuitive and spiritual powers, according to Tallard Johnson, a psychotherapist and mentor of young teens. This "ability to access inner wisdom" was once considered an essential part of an adolescent's schooling. Nowadays, such training seems to have fallen by the wayside. Ironically, with young people facing so many pressures and risks in modern Western culture, a mandatory course in developing a healthy inner guidance system is needed more than ever. Thankfully, Tallard Johnson is helping to fill the void. Her primary goal is to help teenagers listen to their true feelings, learn to read their own energy and become more adept at living a life that is congruent with their inner wisdom (aka intuition). It's hard to find fault with her ambitions or delivery. Drawing from an eclectic stew of wisdom (such as the Sufi tradition of breathing, the yoga Chakra system, Tibetan Buddhism and the I Ching), Tallard Johnson offers an excellent primer on connecting with the inner spirit. Designed like a workbook, every chapter includes compelling testimonials, folk tales, ancient teachings, practical exercises and journaling assignments. Tallard Johnson covers many core concerns of teenagers how to become an individual, develop self-loving beliefs, recognize and overcome substance and emotional abuse, make decisions from the higher self, create healthy relationships and find a safe spiritual teacher. Don't be turned off by the seemingly trite title this is a book of merit and depth.
