Different Types of Psychic Abilities
The world of psychic development, psychic abilities and your own budding sixth sense is vast and infinite with ever more terrain to explore. You will never be “done” with it, never become that all-powerful and omniscient psychic medium with invincible powers who knows it all and can do it all.
But you CAN be you, only living an even better life than you are right now, by developing your intuition and your sixth sense.
Am I Psychic?
Actually, you are. In fact, there really isn’t anything “paranormal” or “extrasensory” about extrasensory perception, or ESP, also often referred to in more traditional circles as intuition or the sixth sense. These abilities are actually quite normal spiritual gifts that all the inhabitants of our planet are naturally endowed with.
Everyone has them. But if you’ve always felt left out when co-workers at the office started whispering by the coffee machine about “premonitory dreams” that they’ve enjoyed or following their hunches and hitting the nail on the head, don’t worry. In our world, it’s normal to discourage people right from their most tender infancy from displaying any signs of possessing these abilities.
Let’s face it. The world is a rational place where left-brained logic and science rule. And there is no way (at the moment) for science to prove the existence of psychic abilities. These qualities can’t be measured. We can’t put a tape measure or ruler to them, weigh them on a balance or pass them through some sort of machine.
But no matter where you are at the moment, you CAN develop psychic abilities within yourself.
So here are some of the more usual forms of extrasensory talent that you can find in people:
There are so many forms of psychic abilities in the world that we could fill up a whole book talking about them. In fact, whole books DO exist about this subject.
But at the moment I’ll just limit myself to listing the most common psychic gifts. Almost certainly, with time, you will find that you are able to develop several of these skills, just as a consummate mathematician can still cultivate the art of writing love letters to his beloved, or an accountant can also learn to whip up amazing gourmet meals to feed a party.
So What Do I Have to Do to Become Psychic?
Well, as I mentioned before, you already are psychic. So you don’t actually have to do anything to become something you already are!
However, just as some people are more gifted for learning languages while others can visualize a blueprint in their heads or figure out complicated calculus equations, so all people have greater facility for some forms of psychic intuition over others.
So let’s not fight against nature. Let’s begin by figuring out where exactly is it that nature has endowed you with the most, and then begin building from there.
We’re all versatile beings, and the more you practice something, the better you will get at it and the easier it will become for you. Developing your psychic abilities is really not all that different, nor any more difficult, than cultivating and improving any other natural skill that you might possess.
So, Where Can I Start?
As I build up each page, I will be defining each term in its respective section. And then I will include, for each type of ability, a sort of check-list so you can see whether you have a facility for that particular ability.
And finally, for each topic, I will include some psychic exercises to help you develop that ability.
Psychic development, like any other endeavour in life, is something that builds up slowly. So don’t expect to turn into a Houdini overnight! However, with just a minimum amount of effort, it won’t be long before you find yourself relying on your intuition and your budding sixth sense for all the little everyday challenges in life, as well as in big, transcendental decisions.
So I’d like to invite you to begin by browsing through this list of different types of psychic abilities that you might wish to learn more about, and click on whichever topic attracts your interest and attention the most. If you find that you don’t identify too much with a particular kind of talent, you can always come back to this page and try out another section. I’m sure that you will find something that speaks to you!
