Most people will experience déjà vu at least once in their lives. It can be a positively unsettling experience. Though it’s still something of a scientific mystery as to why exactly it happens, the suspected origins are in and of themselves fascinating! More often than not, you’ve never been there, or in quite the same situation – but in the back of your mind, everything sounds, looks, and feels familiar. In fact, part of the weirdness of the situation is that the feeling seems to sweep into the front of your mind. You might even be able to make a prediction as to what’s about to happen.
If you’ve made such a prediction, or just felt a very strong sense of déjà vu, then chances are, you’ve got enough sense of Extra Sensory Perception to make it worth exploring. ESP shouldn’t remain mysterious and otherworldly but on the contrary, it should be a fun, interesting and enriching part of your own experience. Learning about your own abilities and potentials is always exciting, but as you’re learning, keep the following important points in mind.
1) ESP is really any perception or sense that is beyond what is normally perceived through the senses. That sounds like the definition of what psychics normally do, but there are some key differences.
2) Just like people who lose one sense, and make up for it by developing a keener sense in one that remains, ESP can be developed, enhanced, strengthened and put to good use.
3) A tremendous amount of the work the brain does is taking place deep below the level of consciousness, where you know nearly nothing about it and what’s it’s doing. Just imagine if you knew just a little more about what’s going on in there.
4) That same brain – as the epicenter of all the senses – is taking in all kinds of signals, processing them and then giving you back just what you think you want to see/hear/smell, etc. It’s not a perfect filter. You can’t, for example, totally filter out foul smells. Well, the truth is, your brain thinks you better know about them first – then later it will help you to filter them out.
5) Once the conscious mind is calm, all kinds of things can be unfiltered, synchronized and highlighted. But it does take calm. Quite often, it will take some practised calm, meaning, you may need to learn some advanced relaxation techniques.
6) ESP is normally the term used to refer to a variety of phenomena practiced by many psychics. These can include:
- Clairvoyance – or distance seeing, the ability to see events or objects happening in another physical or spatial location.
- Precognition – seeing and predicting events to occur the future.
- Psychometry – learning by touching a physical object usually about another person or place.
- Telepathy – intuiting or listening to the thoughts of another person.
- Retrocognition – seeing events or situations that happened in the past.
- Mediumship – a rare ability to channel the voices or messages from the dead.
7) ESP very often begins with something like intuition. A very light ESP occurrence might even be described as simply “pure intuition” or a feeling. It might be a sense that something is just not right or that you need to pay attention but without a logical explanation. People without training and experience in psychic techniques or awareness will probably leave it at that. But an experienced professional psychic will harness the opportunity to see and hear and learn, even with very limited initial input.
8) Developing your ESP and your psychic abilities allows anyone to make better and sounder decisions – in almost any situation. It doesn’t necessarily promise that you can predict lottery numbers or stocks to buy (or sell) but it does lead to greater peace of mind and awareness of the people and situations around you. It will almost certainly make you a better listener.
9) One of the biggest reasons for skepticism about ESP is that simply too many people have used it (or faked it) to make money. A healthy sense of skepticism is never a bad thing, but don’t let it stop you from learning something new, or from developing your own abilities to the fullest. Good psychics will still need to be paid, but that’s not to say that the field is not crowded with imposters. It is. Before you pay anything be sure you know with whom you’re dealing and what’s the nature of the service. You don’t have to trust just anyone, but you also shouldn’t hesitate to ask as many probing questions as you like, upfront.
Remember; keep learning, keep exploring and keep growing. There’s never been a better time to learn something new, and your inner eye will show you.
