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 »
Distinctive smells have long been associated with a variety of paranormal and psychic phenomena. Many mediums specifically rely on their ability to ‘smell spirit’ in order to validate loved ones who have crossed over, or to identify the presence of spiritual entities.
Some psychics also use smell to gain insight into events of the past, present and future. This unusual ability is known as the extra-sensory ability or psychic gift of clairolfaction. Other interchangeable terms used to identify this ‘clair sense’ is clairosmesis, clairalience, clairessence and clairscent. They all refer to the same psychic ability, namely ‘clear smelling’.
Clairolfaction is a form of extra-sensory perception (ESP) that enables the gifted person to receive psychic or paranormal information by means of ‘psychic smelling’. It is, however, important to note that a person with this ability does not smell any real odors or fragrances.
Psychics with this extra-sensory gift are able to ‘smell’ beyond the normal range of the smelling sense. There is no physical source for such a smell, and other people in the room would usually not smell anything, unless they are also gifted. Read the rest of this entry »
There are many ways that extra-sensory perception (ESP) manifests in human beings. There are also a variety of ways through which psychic readers express their ESP abilities.
Each psychic is blessed with special ESP abilities, which can be used to divine answers for others to questions about the past, present or future.
Be wary of psychics who claim that they are more gifted than others. Psychics who are confident in their own gifts do not make judgment statements about the abilities and talents of other readers. The variety of gifts and abilities that psychics possess is actually a very good thing. A greater number of people with questions can be helped, because there are so many different forms of ESP that can be used to answer their questions. Read the rest of this entry »
Most of us hear the word “paranormal” and a whole host of concepts might come to mind: ghosts, extra-sensory perception (ESP), creatures like Sasquatch or the Loch Ness monster. A good many of us might even have experienced a paranormal phenomenon or two in our lives. But what exactly is paranormal? The answer might surprise you, as will its related cousin, the term “perinormal.”
“Paranormal” comes from the Greek word meaning “outside.” Thus, “outside of what is normal.” On the other hand, “perinormal” takes its root from the word meaning “close to.” So, the term “perinormal” might apply to almost every living person today. Read the rest of this entry »
In our work occasionally we become freelance parapsychologists. On occasion I hear about the visitations by evil or malevolent spirits from my clients. One client told me she claimed she and her witness had woken up to claw marks in their wall over their bed. Definitely dark stuff – yet I feel most of us have dealt with these types of experiences, and still to this day, I am waiting for a spectre to actually injure someone. It is odd they only leave marks, trails of terror, but never any proof or reason for their appearances. Once again – all my clients survive these visitations!
On occasion yes, I do dream of people that have passed. On occasion victims of crime or murder tell me about their perpetrators, and even pass information onto me about their murderers next movements. Read the rest of this entry »
