When I am teaching a class on psychic development, I like to introduce the technique known as “psychometry” to the participants to use and they will always receive a response that is verifiable. Psychometry is a form of psychic divination using the sense of touch. You can receive intuitive impressions and information about an object, or anything connected to it, by touching it. The physical sense of touch then shifts into ultrasense™ which is the spiritual sense of feeling.
What it is:
“Psychometry is picking up or reading the energy of an object (such as keys or jewelry) by holding it in your hand. You can sense the vibrations emanating from it. The energy patterns of the object are downloaded into the reader’s subtle bodies. The memories contained in the object are accessed by the subconscious mind and raised to conscious awareness.
“The reader receives information about the history of the object. If someone had it in their possession for a long period of time, you can receive information about that person as well.
“Psychometry can be used to heighten the contact with someone’s vibration during a reading. Many readers use this
method as a tool along with their main area of expertise. It also can be used in connect with others at a distance. I have successfully used this method to assist contacting the spirit of a recently departed teenager, receiving critical information for locating the body.”

Psychometry is a term described in parapsychology as a psi (or psychic) ability. The person using psychometry is able to connect with and relate details about the past condition of an object or area, or events experienced by the person who possessed the object. The user could, for example, give police precise details about a murder or other violent crime, if they were at the crime scene, or were holding the weapon used. Psychometry is a type of retro cognition.
Psychometry opens the practitioner to bursts of energy and/or memories (both negative and positive) that have left imprints on an object or place. For instance, a house where a traumatic experience happened, such as a murder or suicide, may feel distinctly chilled or negative; while a favorite childhood toy or play area may feel light or positive. A place or thing may be so charged with emotions and memories that it may even seem haunted.
As we exist in an electromagnetic programmed reality – metal objects work best. This refers to keys, jewelry, etc. However, all objects carry a frequency signature. The vibrations vary and can be recognized through psychic means. When doing psychometry, you attempt to connect your frequencies with the object in question.
How to do it:
The Basic Use of Psychometry
Here is a great exercise for you to practice to get a feel for what psychometry is. It’s best to start out by yourself in a quiet, light meditative state.
Put these items in a box or basket: rocks, crystals, treebark, fabric, tissue paper, plastic, or an assortment of other inanimate objects. Everything in the universe has a vibratory rate – animate and inanimate. That is what renders its manifested form. Denser objects have slower, heavier vibrations. Thinner, softer or more porous objects have a faster or higher vibration.
Clear your mind and take an item out of the basket. Hold it in your hand and sense what it is and where it came from. The feeling you are
looking for is not a tactile feeling, but a sense or impression.
Go with your first impressions. Become aware of the different vibrations, special feelings and impressions. They are very subtle at first. So if you think you feel something, you do. Trust it and say it out loud. This exercise can be practiced at home during your meditative times.
After you get used to using this exercise, you can feel confident to move ahead and explore other uses of psychometry. In another article I will explain a more detailed approach to the practice that will allow you to share information with someone you wish to psychically read for.
Until then, enjoy your new abilities of exploring subtle energies!
