Have you meet someone who claims to be psychic?
If you believe that someone is psychic or has psychic powers, you believe that they have strange mental powers, such as being able to read the minds of other people or to see into the future.
Some psychics are skilled in mediumship, which is the ability to communicate with the spirit world: people who have passed away but who still retain a link with the living. If you possess physic abilities of this nature then you have the potential to be able to channel messages from the spirit world to the living. Professional mediums often act as transmitters of messages from the spirit world to the deceased person’s relatives or loved ones.
Telekinesis is also known as pyschokinesis and is the ability to move objects using the power of the mind alone. If you possess telekinetic skills they may need honing in order to be able to perfect them. If your psychic abilities demonstrate themselves in the form of precognition, then it means you are able to foresee events before they happen, sometimes in dreams, at other times in waking visions. Being a psychic with levitation skills is rare, and means you are able to hover above the ground.
Ever hear of people suddenly “seeing” the solution to a problem when they’re relaxing and not actively engaging their minds? For instance, you’re taking a shower and you have a sudden insight into solving a problem at work. The same kind of information might also come to you while you’re meditating or doing yoga. Studies have shown that these practices seem to change our brain-wave activity — often causing our frontal lobe to quiet down. But in my experience, these activities also seem to “open” people who are psychic even more! Psychic abilities can often sit quietly, then suddenly emerge when we’re not focused on them.
So it seems that despite occurrences of fakery, forgery and fraudulence – as well as mixed evidence – people will still continue to believe in psychic phenomena. cIndeed, research has shown that one in three Americans feel they have experienced a psychic moment – and nearly half of US women claim they have felt the presence of a spirit.
Whether this is down to lack of analytical skills, genuine experiences, or just in a bid to make the world a little bit more interesting, it seems believers will continue to believe – despite science indicating otherwise.
