Chip Coffey in his book Growing up Psychic defines being psychic like this: “having the ability to pull in energy and receive information that cannot be accessed using the five senses”. He’s talking about the sixth sense that people with psychic abilities have. But what does that mean in terms of the kinds of things a person can do with this sixth sense. And what about paranormal phenomena, when something happens that can’t be explained rationally or scientifically, again something that can’t be understood with the five senses?
There are any number of ways a person can be psychic and experience paranormal phenomena, including the following (please note that this list is not all inclusive):
- Communicating with the spirit of a person who has passed on
- Communicating with angels, fairies, elves or other creatures of non-ordinary reality
- Communicating with animals in either ordinary or non-ordinary reality (like Sarah does)
- Picking up the feelings and thoughts of another person
- Predicting the future
- Seeing auras (the energy field around a person or object)
- Being a medical intuitive where one senses physical or emotional illness in another person
- Having telekinetic powers where one’s thoughts can move things
Having psychic abilities is a God-given gift, just like being a musical prodigy like Mozart or a child actress like Shirley Temple or a famous ballerina like Gelsey Kirkland.
This kind of “brilliance” is often a condition of living “outside the box”. Also, those with psychic abilities are generally hypersensitive to everything in the world around them. Unfortunately, in our society, this kind of thinking and feeling is often stifled instead of being allowed to develop.
So what do we do to nurture this gift in those who have it?
My goal is to seek out resources that will do just that and relate these to you. Click here to see a few items that have inspired me as I write my Sarah’s Gift book series. And if you know of something that you would like to share – a story or a resource you have come across that would be helpful to others – please let me know so I can post it.
Let’s make this world a better place for all the wonderful people with psychic abilities. Let’s help them flourish so that their souls find their purpose and highest potential.
