What is a Psychic?

PsychicA psychic is someone who is sensitive to information or phenomena that is outside of the sensory awareness of most people. So what does that look like? Most of us perceive information through our 5 physical senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. Most of us perceive sensory input similar to each other, within a specific range based on the make up of our physical bodies as human beings. A psychic is able to distinguish information beyond this “normal” range, originating in the nonphysical or supernatural realms.

Field of Parapsychology

Since the beginning of time, there have been those who believe that psychic phenomena are real and that psychics have a genuine gift. There have also been many detractors, who do not believe that psychics are any more gifted than anyone else and that unexplained phenomena are either simply fabricated or not yet understood by science. The debate between these perspectives continues. In the midst of this, the field of parapsychology studies these phenomena, as well as the wide variety of psychic abilities that people have claimed for centuries.

Energy and Magnetic Fields

Some experts feel that everyone has some psychic ability, whether you call it a sixth sense or intuition or gut instinct, but that most psychics are somehow sensitized to energy emanating from electrical or magnetic fields. Other psychics are able to tap into emotional or physical aspects of those energy fields. Unfortunately, there are no sure guidelines that can be followed to prove that someone is psychic or not. Other professionals, including physicians, lawyers and politicians, are held by certain ethical and educational standards that make it easier to determine whether they are capable of performing the duties that they state they can. With a psychic, it’s not so simple.

Truths and Superstitions

Many law enforcement agencies throughout the world employ the services of a psychic to help solve difficult cases. Is this hocus-pocus or reality? Television shows also abound on psychics who help solve such cases. Different cultures throughout the history of humankind each have their own beliefs about such claims. So, do such seeds of commonality provide a sense of ethereal truth? Parapsychology is a complicated field, one fraught with dealing with and uncovering truths and superstitions that have been passed down from one generation to another for centuries.

Psychic Tests

Parapsychologists have attempted to devise psychic tests in order to determine definitive answers to the question of credibility. Throughout the world, scientists have developed tests that hope to uncover the truth about powers that some people have, psychic or not, that can’t be logically explained.

Telepathy, Psychokinesis, Clairvoyance and Precognition

In the lingo of the psychic world, extra sensory perception is divided into four different psychic abilities: telepathy, psychokinesis, clairvoyance and precognition. Telepaths have the ability to sense the thoughts and feelings of others, and sometimes even the ability to send their own thoughts into the minds of others. A clairvoyant has the ability to see things or find out facts about someone or something that others can’t, without being supplied any prior information. A psychokinetic has the ability to influence physical matter, much like the Amazing Kreskin and his bending spoons. Someone gifted in precognition is able to see the near or far future and events before they take place, almost as if they’re dreaming them.

Countless Psychic Abilities

There are countless psychic abilities that have been identified beyond those mentioned above. While clairvoyance is a gift of “seeing,” clairsentience is a gift of “feeling”, and clairaudience is a gift of “hearing.” Some psychics (mediums) can perceive the presence of beings from nonphysical planes and even communicate with them. Those are just a few examples of many. The psychic abilities of those who conduct psychic readings often include clairvoyance and/or the others mentioned here. They can also include skills at divining the Tarot cards, interpreting astrological charts, and reading palms.

Fact or Superstition?

Whether one believes in psychic powers or not, studies continue to offer a fascinating glimpse into the human psyche. We may never know whether or not psychic ability is fact or superstition according to the laws of science, but as long as we continue to explore the field of parapsychology, we may eventually find the answers.
