Throughout time mankind has explored the ability to communicate with the Gods, with Nature or each other on a non-verbal level. It is extremely common for us to use the term intuitive in the world and intuition is often the explanation given by many an entrepreneur or successful decision maker – “I just trusted my gut”, “What I love about Mary is she is just so intuitive and makes the right decisions”.
Psychic on the other hand, although nowadays often known within a household, conjures up 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.
A definition for Intuitive is:
A definition for Psychic is:
The Wikipedia definition for Psychic is that the word is derived from the Greek word psychikos‘ (“of the mind” or “mental”) and refers in part to the human mind or psyche (ex. “psychic turmoil”). The Greek word also means “soul”.
A definition for Mediumistic is:
of, relating to, or having the qualities of a spiritualist medium (an individual held to be a channel of communication between the earthly world and a world of spirits)
I suggest to you that the same mechanics are involved in intuition as in psychic as in being a medium. It is information that we obtain or become aware of from a realm unseen, information that there appears to be no proof or evidence in the moment of it’s source but is valuable and worth taking notice of. When we study quanta and the Universal Laws of Nature we are now, with the help of advances in science and technology, able to quantify much more of how Nature and the physical body communicates; how it (Nature or our body) heals and grows (bio-energetics). Our movies and obsession in Sci-Fi and the paranormal is perhaps just a means to having us open up our minds to so much more possibilities to life?
ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) is the term used in the early days by Dr Louisa Rhines (Duke University) and other researchers of Parapsychology and experiments were done with zener cards to determine if there is ESP, clairvoyance and such phenomena. According to the articles there were a large number of hits (correct answers) that pointed to it being beyond chance. Some individuals seemed more attuned than others. Each of you should make your own decisions but I suggest you explore how science is changing and in addition, reflect back upon your life experiences.
The challenge we have in accepting whether intuition and psychic/mediumship behavior is real is that our mind, our memories, our education triggers the ego to dispel the probability and possibility of these events dependent upon our circumstances and emotional attachment to the event. By this I mean that we can easily accept intuition being real, we can even accept that our Loved Ones who have physically died are watching over us or “I feel their presence every day” yet many if asked as to whether they believe in psychics or mediums and their ability to communicate with the dead then an adamant No (or absolutely not) may pop up. So my ego has now come to a conclusion that my belief in the Divine Source allows me to know that my deceased friends and family members are with me but my ego also rejects the same mechanics that give me that personal knowing of the ability for others to “talk” with my Loved One. If deceased family are around me watching and supporting then why would they not also communicate with you? Well they do.
Through all of time there has been the inability among scientists to scientifically “prove” paranormal phenomena. Yet through all of time the unseen realm was consulted by “seers, prophets, soothsayers, oracles” to comfort or assist in decision making.
My experiences have shown that the phenomena is real but it comes with it’s “handicaps”. Often the information can be too subjective, the client interjects their story with data, we fish for information but a good communicator can still say focused and get pertinent answers.
Psychic readings also involve reading the energy in the environment, the energy and body language of the client and a more symbolic representation of information. After 20+ years working with the metaphysical I have found that with practice, diligence and learning how to be of service by understanding Natural Law and energy you expand and data results higher than simply chance will occur. Developing “psychic ability” is a wonderful tool in your spiritual path. If so inclined I suggest you explore more intensive development such that you can become a medium. A medium has the capability to obtain information such as form of death, personality characteristics, family memories, ancestral lineage and have those Loved Ones pass on information to those still living.
What is the Benefit to Developing One’s Intuition
The primary benefit is learning to trust those random thoughts or feelings that are given us when we are trying to find a solution to a problem, when we are in a time of distress asking for help. Waking up in the morning and suddenly having your answer, your next patent solution, your confidence in self that you have the answers within. You also become more connected with your environment and enjoy more peaceful times by accessing the Universal Energy (or Universal Mind).
To become a psychic or medium you simply take the intuitive skills forward to access data and information upon request from the environment with intention. Psychics and mediums are individuals who have chosen to develop these skills to serve individuals who are in a place of grief of the loss of a family member or friend. The greatest gift that can be given by a medium is to provide details of the deceased to confirm Continuity of Life. That shows that deceased Loved Ones are around the individual.
