The bad news is that Mental Pinnacle already exists. "Psionic" already has a very specific meaning in D&D. If the DM likes them, he'll probably want to go with the system as it exists, power points and augmentations and all. If the DM doesn't, asking for the ability to let your magic unlock mind powers will probably get turned down on the basis of flavor alone.
Yeah I knew about mental pinnacle - but it's more an equivalent to transformation (i.e. a combat-themed spell as opposed to a utility spell). Awaken self would be useful more for its duration than anything (plus telekinesis and suggestions, I suppose). I've edited the psionic part to "mental powers"; since the spell is duplicating core spells I can't see a DM objecting now. Thanks for the comments!
