There is the fashionable notion these days for individuals to be branded as ‘psychics’ or ’empaths’ if they are emotionally sensitive, or display a high level of compassion towards others. It is automatically assumed that people who are emotionally highly intelligent must also have an exceptional capacity for extra-sensory perception (ESP). Nothing could be further from the truth.
If anything, I believe this myth is only serving to confuse and mislead people, and may even cause further emotional damage, by imposing unreasonable expectations on some highly sensitive, or even emotionally vulnerable people.
I had many traumatic paranormal experiences in my childhood, and I was constantly overwhelmed by extra-sensory perceptions I did not understand. To find reliable information on the subject in those days was near impossible. The confusion and frustration I had to endure in my youth – often due to the ignorance of others – made me vow to research, learn and share as much as I could about psychic abilities. If I can spare just one gifted child unnecessary trauma, or inspire just one adult to come out of the ‘clair closet’, the bewilderment I had to endure would all be worth it. Thus, the reason for this article. Read the rest of this entry »
Throughout time mankind has explored the ability to communicate with the gods, with nature, or with each other on a non-verbal level. It is extremely common for us to use the term intuitive. these days. It is often the explanation given by many an entrepreneur or successful decision-maker: “I just trusted my gut,” or “What I love about Mary is she is just so intuitive and makes the right decisions.”
The term psychic on the other hand, although nowadays often well known within a household, conjures up for so many outside the metaphysical community feelings of distrust, fake, absurd, not possible. Perhaps these attributes are attached because of our personal belief system that does not value or agree with the skill set. This also can impact our personal relationships if we know it is real and others judge us since we may then hide our abilities as being psychic and connected with the unseen realm or worse shut down and not continue developing them.

Remote viewing is the ability to see beyond what is accessible to the normal senses. The remote viewer can see beyond the present time and space. It is a form extra-sensory perception, also known as clairvoyance or astral projection. It can be used to gain access to information that is not accessible to the normal senses, and can even be used to predict the outcome of a future event.
For example, the remote viewer will be able to describe a place on the other side of the world, which they have never seen or visited; or describe an event that happened long ago, or will happen in the future.
In my opinion remote viewing can’t be taught or trained. It’s something that you’re born with. Your remote viewing skills may be improved through training, but do you need the basic extra-sensory ability as a talent to begin with. Read the rest of this entry »
What is the point of being able to deliver a telepathic message when the effort to deliver it can be obscured by the very person’s intent? What I have noticed is that an unusually high number of people are now becoming more telepathic, which is causing them great concern, and is confusing to them. This is leaving me with the notion of the difference between true thoughts, fleeting thoughts and true empathy, which in itself can also be fleeting.
If this is indeed true, what I have noticed is the same propensity of people to thought-obscure as they can thought-communicate. So, in other words, you can notice the same patterns or types of persons who lie, even when they ‘think to you’ ideas as they can talk to you in real life. This can be frustrating. Just because someone is sending you a thought or complete idea doth not make it true. You need time to evaluate it. Read the rest of this entry »
A long history remains of brilliant thinkers, scientists, politicians, religious leaders and scholars who had throughout the ages studied the mysteries. They suffered greatly, as they were infamous in their knowledge and advancement of the sciences, and thus reviled and distrusted, due to the change they brought about in human history. It often began as a study of religion and the cosmos, which opened up the doorways to new ways of thinking.
None could be a better example than Galileo Galilei, who was forced to recant on his knees, on penalty of death, that the world was not only round, but that we were orbiting the sun.
Geordiano Bruno also faced the Roman Inquisition. He was a priest, philosopher, mathematician and astrologer. He was burned at the stake for heresy due to his unorthodox cosmological theories. Read the rest of this entry »
I have struggled with depression for many years. I used to have highs and lows. During the highs I was invincible, untouchable and successful. Everything I touched seemed to turn to gold (in my mind). My personal appearance would be well-manicured, my house immaculate, gourmet meals were served for breakfast lunch and dinner. I would start new businesses, for having a husband, two children and a full-time shift job was not enough.
I launched these businesses with great success while on my emotional highs. Money excited me – not other people’s money, but the money I was able to make during these manic bouts. I loved it and loathed it all at the same time. I barely needed to sleep. I would spend lavishly on those I loved. Read the rest of this entry »
The ideal for many of us is to be superhuman – to be better in our own human form, or for some attaining the perfection of mental or psychic superiority. For aeons humans have seen themselves as the most intelligent beings, the masters, or even the center of the universe, before Copernicus opened us up to the mechanism of our solar system, and thus our galaxy. Before then, and still now, we were always desiring to be better than most.
For many our higher powers have mostly taken on the form of the human, or better yet the man or masculine. The idea of becoming an animal, or even worse, a cursed female, was seen as a punishment for being an inefficient human. This was seen in the quaint but powerful cult of Pythagoras, where attaining the ideal both numerically as well as humanly were to be earned, and that becoming an animal would be the punishment for being a poor person or not being able to follow through on society’s morals.

When one thinks of a superhero, one doesn’t always think about the personality and thus the organization that a character such as a superhero has to have. Contrary to belief, extra-sensory perception (ESP) is only one portion of the heroic personality, and is probably only utilized in a very specific way. There are many other forms of what one could attribute as a superhuman power, but some may require study and practice, and some may require a lot of imagination.
When one categorizes a super-human energy one has to parse it into a few categories. Some of them can overlap culturally, meaning that many cultures can share the same innate ideas of power, such as the Chi for example, which is not only found in Asian culture, but also in forms of Animism. This is an example of an energy. Chi is a subtle form of energy channeling which can be appreciated well by those who understand martial arts or acupuncture. Read the rest of this entry »
