Are you psychic? You probably don’t think so, but I’ll bet you’re wrong. In many cases we’ve been taught there is no such thing or that it’s evil. You know – “Don’t dabble in the occult.” sort of thing. That certainly stands in the way of using one’s natural ability. Having a capacity for being psychic doesn’t require some special feeling or aptitude. It is important to realize everyone has this innate gift of psychic sensitivity. It’s normal and it’s how the rest of nature operates. Other living things were never taught there was no such thing or that it was wrong. Thinking like that hampers learning how to access and use our naturally-given senses….which is probably why it was given such a bad rap to begin with.
There are many different names given to the various areas of ‘psychic ability’ that one may possess. It seems everyone has their own talent they will be more adept in than another. The most popular at this time seems to be communing with ghosts – or at least trying to find out if they are real or not.
Searching for an entity could involve many different psychic abilities. If one has mediumistic talents, seeing and talking with a spirit should be quite easy. But, being sensitive can cover a great many areas. Being clairaudient would allow you to be able to hear spirits talking while clairvoyance would let you see an apparition. Both can be present at the same time in the same person.
One could have the knack for automatic writing to allow the deceased to write through a planchette onto sheets of paper while the practitioner , alone or with others, places their hands on the writing tool. This is similar to an ouija board – which I will argue isn’t evil, but that’s a different story.
Some people could use psychometry to discover something about either someone who is either still alive or has passed. If given an object belonging to the person in question the psychomotrist can detect information about the person through their residual energy.
