Are You Psychic? What Do You Think?

Many people would say “No”, to this question, “Only a few people with special abilities are psychic.” But as we move closer to the Aquarian Age, more and more people are becoming aware that everyone is psychic. Everyone has a sixth sense, sometimes called extra-sensory perception. Most people are afraid of extra-sensory perception because they don’t understand it. I think it’s time to lift the veil from psychic matters and reveal the truth.

If you told me you’d never had a hunch about something, I wouldn’t believe you. Think back to a time when you had an impression about the way something would turn out, and it turned out that way. Or you saw a series of numbers in your mind and, if you had played them, you would have won the lottery. Or you had a thought about someone and they called you on the phone. Or you walked into a room and immediately felt right at home or very uncomfortable for no apparent reason.

That’s psychic awareness. The original Greek meaning of the word, psychic, is of the soul, mental. Psychic phenomena are feared by many because they occur beyond our physical senses where we can’t see them. But there are familiar expressions of psychic energy that we experience every day. Our thoughts exist in the spirit world. You can’t hold a thought in your hand. Our soul energy, the energy that drives our bodies, is spiritual energy. We are animated by the invisible energy of our spirit, which we take for granted, along with our thoughts.

One way to understand psychic energy is to label it. Psychic awareness is manifested through four expressions: precognition (inner knowing), clairaudience (inner voice or words/inner hearing), clairvoyance (mental pictures/inner vision), and clairsentience (inner feeling and sensation). Everyone has experienced all four of these expressions. Everyone uses all four of them almost every day.

Here is an exercise you can do to make your psychic perception more real. Get a piece of paper and a pen or pencil and make a list of the four means of psychic perception listed above. Then, starting at the top of the list, write down an experience with each expression. I bet you will be surprised.

While we have all four means of psychic perception, each of us uses one primarily, with the others falling in line behind it, and the primary one reflects our personality type.

If you use precognition primarily, you are very sensitive to your environment (including other people), you like to daydream, you like to sleep late and go to bed late, your office or home may be messy but you always know where things are, you often know how events or circumstances will turn out, you have prophetic dreams, you’re good at spotting trends, and you think about the future. Some of you are trance channels.

If you are primarily clairvoyant, you like order and cleanliness, many of you wear glasses, you smile when you are angry, you always look neat and attractive, you are precise, you express yourself clearly, you like schedules, you are choosey about people and things,  you think in pictures, and you can see auras (energy around people and things).

If you are primarily clairaudient, you are a natural leader, you think big and leave the details to others, you take your time to figure things out then act quickly, you can’t think clearly in messy surroundings, you look well-put-together because you like to be organized, you think in words and ideas, you don’t usually like to be touched, you hear the still, small voice within, and a person’s tone of voice tells you more about them than the words they are saying.

If you are primarily clairsentient, you are easygoing, you like comfort in clothing and in your environment, many of you are not fussy about your appearance, you are a detail person, you have a great deal of physical energy, you are friendly to everyone, you are a toucher; shaking hands with someone tells you a lot about the person, you like to be touched, you think in feelings and sensations, and you are can pick up impressions by touching or holding objects (psychometry).

Which personality type do you relate to the most? In which category would you place your family or friends? After you evaluate them, it would be fun to let them read this post and see where they would place themselves.

So, what does this mean? How can you use it in your life? That’s for next time when I will talk about how to use your sixth sense in practical ways in your everyday life.
