There are different forms of psychic abilities. Some people can see vision or dream about it. Some people talk about inner voices talking to them. Some people have strong feelings of happiness or danger. Some people just know. I remember when I was young, I often knew that my friends were going to dial my house phone. Sometimes I even knew what questions they were going to ask. I couldn't explain why, just knew. I know that mothers often have psychic abilities when come to children. Somehow they can sense that their kids sustain injuries at school. Now I completely void of psychic abilities, unless I am deep in the rainforest, then I know that it's going to rain two or three hours later. Do you believe in psychic power? Do you have any psychic abilities?

I believe in psychic ability. I believe it is in the young the most. As you get older you lose the ability due to society stimuli. It worked for me several times and the people that don't believe would call you crazy so I won't go into details, but I do believe.

Hi Mommaj, I do think the younger ones have more psychic power than us. I bet the older we are, the less psychic we are, unless we go all out to maintain the psychic abilities. I guess those psychic power never makes you rich! If you have the psychic for the next lotto jackpot and you hit the jackpot, I bet nobody (except me) will call you crazy! I know you are mad enough, living in the cave for so long, and always throwing stones!

You'll call me crazy even if I don't hit the jackpot. LOL I was once told some people have psychic powers to deal with different events in life. I think that may have been why I had a lot of mine. I'm not sure if we honestly lose our ability or if we just push it out. There is so much of our brains that we don't use. I throw my stones without picking up any rocks with my hands. (I used my teeth.) I moved them with my mind. I thought it and my kids threw them. LOL

haha, your psychic ability not so good oh! The minute you can throw the stones with just your brain power, then that is a demonstration of psychic powers oh! Faster go and train for it! Even if you dont get rich through winning jackpot, you can still get rich by using your psychic ability to throw stones everywhere.

haha, if you have psychic abilities for next toto grand draw or next casino jackpot, you probably travel round the world twice by now. If anyone can teach this kind of psychic ability, I bet the fee for one day is more than a thousand dollars. Too bad there is no way to learn, even though many chances to practice lottery prediction every week.

Interesting question. Some things are easily explained and others are not. Psychic ability is viewed differently by different people. Is is psychic to intuitively understand things or know something with an explanation of how you know it? Is it psychic if no one else believes in your ability?

A bad feeling is not necessarily psychic ability. I could say "something is telling me to stay home tonight" and any number of incidents can take place but that does not mean I would have been involved in them. (As is often the case.) Being sensitive is one thing, being perceptive another. Being specific in saying to someone "this will definitely happen..." well, that is another thing entirely and is seldom seen.

Hi Canellita, having sixth sense is part of psychic ability. It is part of the message sends by the unconscious to the conscious mind. The problem with psychic is that the definition is very broad, and not all experience life changing event.

growing up i didnt believe it b/c of the religious background that i was under and now that i am older, i totally believe in it. marrying into a family that feels energy i totally get it. i am now able to feel people's energy all the time. i know to stay away from them. i get a headache if im not at a distance from someone that has negative energy. to evey1, i guess you can call it tension. my mother in law is a practiced medium and she predicted me and the now hubby that we would meet. they have been advising into their abilities. it is quite interesting.

Hi Erbear, it's funny how the psychic power from your mother-in-law can rub onto you. I think your children will inherit the psychic power. Most people do not have such strong psychic abilities to feel energy. I'm surprised that your religious background didn't allow you to believe it, when all the books in the Bible are full of psychic accounts.

my husband thinks that that our 3 y/o can see animal spirits :) as for the religious thing, my parents always believed in the guardian angels and thats it. their upbringing was very "close minded" as you can say.

Hi Erbear, the fact that people believe in guardian angels, and believe that the guardian angels will sound warning is a psychic belief. The fact that guardian angels operate on a different dimension, unconstraint by wall or physical barriers, and can communicate through our psychic, that itself is similar psychic beliefs that they can communicate with the higher dimension.

I believe in psychic abilities, I have experienced them in a few different forms and I have witnessed my father do a few strange and unexplainable things. Also His mother was known for "knowing" as you say when her kids were in trouble. so I guess it definitely has been passed down for generations. Although I think it has diluted as it has gone.. I wish I had more ability and more control over it. The things I have experienced have included Premonitions (of a sort) I would always have a horrible feeling prior to something bad happening. like butterflies in my stomach.. Unfortunately when I get them now I tend to think anxiety attack instead of listening to my gut. Also I have had precognitive dreams. And the weirdest thing that happened only once to me was about an hour prior to me being involved in an accident. I heard a voice in my left ear, say " your going to have an accident " I was so freaked out by it- i did not even tell my friend who was with me.. UNTIL After the accident! then she looked at me and said I knew something was going to happen too.. since then we always make it a point to share bad feelings.

Hi Minx, I think you are fortunate to have such strong psychic abilities, yet you do your best to dilute the effort! I think if you start to listen to the psychic, instead of making excuses to discount the warnings, your potential will develop. Maybe you can learn yoga or some other meditations to make your psychic more powerful. I think you can help many people with your powerful psychic. How I wish I have such powerful abilities.

I should meditate or something I agree. Because I know I really don't listen to myself like I should.. The ability though was much stronger in my grandmother. and even my father did some things that I still think were amazing.. I, only a few things, that even my mother learned to trust. If I told her I felt something she would always listen.
21 Sep 09
Mine are a bit vague like yours. I get feelings that someone is going to ring me, that kind of thing. I am interested in all that stuff though. Our dog was psychic though, because my parents used to swear that he sat up at the window looking for me when I was about to turn up.
@scheng1 (24748)

haha that's funny! Maybe the psychic power of your dog rubs onto you, that's why it's so vague, and not that useful. I bet when you explain the lotto system to your dog, your psychic dog can "woof" the next jackpot numbers for you. Wonder if you can teach the dog to recognise numbers?

I believe there is psychic powers, and that we have it all in ourselves. We just need to find a way to tap into it. Or sometimes we just don't know about it until you realize you're using it. I do that sometimes, although I don't think I can call it psychic. We all probably have it at some point. (Mine is when I think of something, and it happens later on. It's kind of spooky and exciting at the same time!) Mom always senses something about someone that turns out to be correct later on (secrets, lies or personalities.)

Hi Light, I understand what you mean. Most of us have moments like that. Most of what we see or feel is extreme, and happens probably a few times in our life. Sometimes those lucky draw winners have very good feelings that something good is going to happen. Sometimes those passengers have very bad feelings before they board the bus or the plane. Those who heed the feelings do not proceed, and they are alive while those in the ill fated journey die. Too bad that we dont always listen to our psychic. If we do, we can have less regrets in life.
22 Sep 09
This really makes me laugh. I don't know if this is true but sometimes I can read people's mind using the the playing cards. Some of my friends find it interesting. I find it really silly. I do it for my friends for fun. I don't believe in psychic powers.

Hi Radiance, so many people want to have your ability. Maybe you can consider learning to use your psychic power to read tarot card, and make a part time living out of it. I have a friend who has very weird psychic power. None of us knows that she has this special psychic power. She loves to gossip. Sometimes when we were out, she changed the conversation abruptly to gossip about certain person. Before the third sentence, the person appeared. Sometimes this happened on board the bus, sometimes in a shopping mall, sometimes in a cafe. She thinks God is warning her against gossiping. I think it's a psychic ability. But this kind of psychic ability is useless

Hello scheng,I know that some people believes in psychic power,maybe there are some who have this ability to foresee the future or happenings according to them.As for me I dont believe in that.God only, has the power to foresee everything.Have anice day,thanks
@scheng1 (24748)

Hi Hazel, since we are made in the image of God, and God knows everything, some people do reflect a great psychic ability. It's obviously not perfect. God can predict events for the next thousands of years, and human psychic can only foresee the next few minutes or next few days. A sense of unease or some weird feelings are part of the defense system inbuilt in our body to warn us of impending disasters. The Bible has so many accounts of God granting animals and humans certain psychic powers. Remember the story about the donkey seeing the angel with a sword, and refused to move? That is psychic ability. The king of Babylon had a dream that made him very agitated, even though he couldn't remember a single thing is another example of psychic. In this case, the psychic force came from God and only Daniel could explain the dream. Many of us have similar experience, but we dont have Daniel to explain to us. We only have a sense of impending disaster.

Believe it or not, I do believe in psychic abilities. Even people would think I'm crazy believing such a thing, I, myself, sometimes know when something bad would happen as if i have visualized it already. There was a time when I was young, I saw and visualized that my brother would be in a road accident. And just a few minutes it happened! When I was young, I would know if someone's phone would ring just a few minutes before it actually happens. Well, i believe that psychic abilities are the result of hard concentration on a thing or an environment. People have different opinions in this matter and these are just my opinions. :D

Hi Caution, apparently you have much powerful psychic than me. I dont foresee much, and I only feel my friend was dialling my phone number. Other than that, I dont have the psychic abilities for anything else. I think it's good that you have this gift. You can stop your relatives and friends from boarding the plane if you see something bad.

Every human being possesss psychic powers,the only thing is that they are usually not aware of it. Psychic powers come to the fore when the mind is brought under ones control by using specific methods like certain powerful breathing exercises in the system of Yoga and deep meditation.Some persons are born with enhanced psychic powers right from their birth like the famous Madam Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society.Once in a while every human does exhibit a psychic power, for eg when he thinks deeply of someone and that person either comes to meet him or calls him on the telephone.This is the power of intuition. Some people can see certain events happening in the future or predict them.I have personally experienced psychic poers but do not give much importance to them.If one has such powers then he must be careful in using them since if misused they can cause great harm to him resulting in madness or even loss of life.

Hi Veejay, in that case, I dont have to worry about misusing the psychic power. Mine is practically non-existent, since it is so elusive and surfaces less than once a year. I can't even control it or bring it forth when I need to make a decision. I think those with powerful psychic must learn to control it properly, otherwise it's a waste power.

Hi Sunethamalathi, I believe you can improve your psychic ability to make it more powerful. Not everyone can have enough control over our psychic power. For me, the psychic is so elusive, and pops out less than once a year. I have no control over it, unlike your control over psychic.

Hi Mom, you must be very close to your friend to feel it. I doubt you have bad feelings whenever anything happen to the people in your neighborhood. Hopefully you can develop your psychic power to feel good as well as bad. Most adults do not have this kind psychic power, it's lost in childhood

Hi Tuananh, psychic abilities can mean anything from instinct, intuition to ESP. Many business people have strong intuitions. Even when all kind of researches and all their employees advise against a certain project, the businessperson has strong feeling that it will work out. That is a psychic ability. Accept for the feel good, and the instinct, there is no base for many decisions. Sometimes when we feel the urge to call someone, that is also from our psychic. We dont know why all of a sudden, the name pops into our mind, and we have the desire to call.

Hi Dozhou, most people do not have psychic power like those in movie. Usually the psychic power is quite vague. Once my friend said that while she was deep in love before her marriage. Once in her office, she could sense that her boyfriend was going to call her at 5 pm. She kept looking at the clock. That time, she was in Beijing, and her boyfriend was in Xinjiang. Sharp at 5 pm, her boyfriend called her. This is the kind of psychic ability that most people have.

Hi Killabyte, probably in a crisis, your hidden psychic power will tell you what to do. Some people have acute psychic abilities, and kids usually have them. When I visited a property with the intention to buy, the owners said that they did not believe in feng shui or whatever. However, they would bring along their youngest kid, about three years old. When the youngest kid cried non-stop inside the house, they knew that the house was not good. Somehow children can feel the wickedness or evil, but they dont know how to tell us, that's why they often cry in the middle of the night due to fear.

Hi Scheng. I do believe in such powers, yes. We probably all have them to some degree. They are simply stronger or more developed in some of us than in others. And yes, I think mothers have more of this ability when it comes to their children, and knowing perhaps when they are in trouble or in danger. Karen

Hi Karen, I agree that most mothers have strong psychic power when it comes to matter concerning their children. Only my mother doesn't have this! She did not feel anything even when we had road accident! I think identical twins are even better in this. Too bad that most of us lost the psychic power when we reach adulthood.

I do believe in psychic power and my mother and I both have some psychic abilities. I often have dreams of people and occurences that seem out of place and trivial and then two or three days later, the same things that happen in my dreams happen in real life. I have two boys and when I'm not around them i sometimes have gut-wrenching, sickeneing feelings and I know something is wrong. For example, I was attending class one night and right in the middle of my teacher's discussion I had the sense that something was wrong. During break I texted my sister, who was babysitting my oldest son, and asked her if everything was ok. She replied that my son had hit his head pretty bad. It occured around the same time as my 'bad feeling'.

Hi Mommawolf, it's great that your psychic power is strong even when you reach adulthood. Probably your mother has a role to play in this. Most parents will ask their children to stop talking nonsense, whenever the children voice out feelings from their psychic abilities. Sometimes we tend to reason our ways out of the feelings from psychic. And that in turn diminishes our psychic power. I hope your two kids have inherited the strong psychic abilities from you. It's great for them.
21 Sep 09
I totally believe in psychic abilities although anyone who claims this gift to me needs to prove it with hard evidence and non vague responses. Now, I do have psychic moments. I read tarot cards and I see them more as a portal to getting information about a particular person or event. I look at a card and although it may have meant a new baby the last time I looked at it, it could mean the loss of a job the next time. I get feelings from the cards so technically the cards are not telling me a story. I had a fall out with my ex a few months into our relationship as I left him in bed while I went to work one day. I had the accute sense that he was going to read my diary but chose to ignore this feeling and still leave for work on time without moving my diary. Later that day, while at my desk I got a text from him saying that we should have a break, he was sorry but he read my diary. Of course I allowed him the break, as much space as he could cope with and for good. I knew from then that I would listen to my instincts and never ignore my intuition.

Hi Georgina, I understand what you are saying. Even though my psychic ability is not as powerful as yours, I do have some little moments of insight. Sometimes the feelings that something is going to happen is very strong, though I am at a loss to explain. I do admire your psychic ability to see things from tarot card. I think you have the potential to sharpen the psychic power so that you can gain from this unique gift.

Hi Tantrums, probably we write off some unique experiences as coincidence, that's why we dont feel that we have psychic power. For example, some mothers take a look at the galfriend that their sons bring home. They know that this is the right or wrong person for their sons. Some even went so far as to say that the gal will cause the demise of their sons or bring good luck to the sons. This kind of instinct is a form of psychic power that cannot be explained away.
