What is a 'Psychic Download'?

"I'm getting a Psychic download", she utters as her fingertips dance on her temples like she's dialing into the universe, while her eyes silently scream, "Full-on psycho mode: engaged!"

this was a recent scene I watched on a reality tv show.

The 'Psychic' deluded herself into thinking she had it all together, but her performance was more like a train wreck in slow motion, leaving the audience questioning her grasp on reality.

It is often a piece of a puzzle

She hyped up her 'Psychic downloads,' but each one landed with the grace of a brick in a pond.

The whole concept of a 'Psychic download' has become a laughingstock.

But fear not, I'm here to rescue it from the dumpster fire of ridicule.

What is a 'Psychic Download'?

A Psychic download is like a mental image on the lens of the mind.

It's akin to a random epiphany that addresses or invokes insight into a relevant matter.

The term "download" implies that the information arrives quickly and effortlessly, almost as if it's being downloaded into your mind like a file on a computer.

It is often a piece of a puzzle that "drops in" to your awareness.

It could sound a lot like "I had a thought that.." or "Something told me he wasn't the one".

Can only Psychics get 'Psychic Downloads'?

Absolutely not.

We are all capable of switching awareness to our intuition.

it could be said though that a lot of 'Psychic Downloads' the average person will get, will be trampled on and obliterated by the sheer weight and busyness of the overactive, overthinking mind.

Genuine psychic downloads often come with strong emotions

Psychics are individuals who have honed their ability to tune into these continuous downloads of information, akin to navigating a boat effortlessly along the current and flowing with it.

How to Recognize a Genuine Psychic Download

It goes without saying that some extra hopeful people can walk around deluded that they get 'Psychic downloads' all the damn day.

This can be self-deception if the download does not comport with reality.

Here's how to discern a real download:

  • Intuition Check: If you suddenly "know" something deep down without logical explanation, it could be a psychic download.

  • Spot the Signs: Look for repeated patterns, meaningful coincidences, or symbols that align with the information you received.

  • Feel the Feels: Genuine psychic downloads often come with strong emotions like excitement, inspiration, or deep introspection. If it comes with fear, overwhelm or a spirit of gossip, hatred or division, it's best to discard it.

  • Double-Check: Get feedback from trusted sources or experienced individuals to confirm the authenticity of your psychic experience.

What to do with a 'Psychic Download'?

A Psychic download comes for a reason.

It could (most times) be a message for you.

A confirmation, validation or encouragement to keep pressing on.

Or it could be a message to gracefully pass on to someone with their consent.

It's advised to discern and balance the download with a cross-check.

You can cross-check with a tarot card pull, ask for a dream or perform an automatic writing session.


A 'Psychic download' can be a bunch of fun and insightful.

It's important to check where and in what spirit it is coming in before embracing it.
