Do you want to develop your psychic skills to write better fiction?
In this 47-minute live audio recording presented at Seton Hill University’s 2012 In Your Write Mind writer’s workshop, writer and medium Lee Allen Howard teaches about psychic development for fiction writers. From the presentation:
Inspiration comes from the same source as psychic information, and delivers creative information along the same channel. By learning to open your psychic channel, you become better able to receive inspiration and channel creative information that makes fiction work. In short: If you widen the psychic channel, you’ll get better ideas.
To receive this information, you must:
1. Connect to higher sources.
2. Bring that information into your waking consciousness.
You’ll learn how to do this with actual development exercises.

I’ll be presenting at Seton Hill University’s IN YOUR WRITE MIND writer’s workshop on Friday morning, June 22. My topic is “Psychic Development for Writers.”
Psychic development is not just for a gifted few. It’s for everyone human, and especially for you as a storyteller.
This workshop will help you discover the innate skills of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. By exercising your psychic sensing mechanisms, you widen your inspirational channel, empowering you to create stories that resonate more deeply with readers.
Come prepared with a specific project in mind to strengthen your imaginative abilities.
Please join us that weekend for genre writing advice and help.
