Any form of ‘Psychic Awareness’ allows
the person possessing it to see and sense events beyond what is
immediately occurring around us, or what is ‘Obvious’. It is thus
sometimes referred to as ‘extra sensory perception’, a virtual
extension of our usual sensory prowess.
Everyone poses certain amount of Psychic
Awareness or Ability. The only difference between them and regular
Psychics is based on the level of trust they have on their capacity. A
number of us clearly confess having a certain amount of intuitive
capacity, but very few of those claiming to poses it project enough to
trust their intuition entirely.
Our brain is regularly flooded with
various sorts of images and information. The brain processes these
information and assigns them meanings according to past experiences of
the individual. Therefore, obviously enough, a number of information or
images are not assigned any such meaning, basically due to the lack of
the individuals past experience regarding the matter. The brain will
also give priority to things which might affect the individual’s
survival over all else, so if there is something particularly hot or
cold or potentially harmful around you that’s what you will be
informed about before you are let to know about the cute guy who is
passing along. Only after these fundamental information have been dealt
with will the brain try processing the more ‘subtle sensory input’.
However, such a point, at which the less understood information is
tagged, may or may not be reached at all.
Certain people, people we call Psychics
are accustomed to decoding such sensory inputs more frequently than
regular people like you or me. This extra ability to deal with most
information that they gain access to is what we term as Psychic Ability.
Various Types of Psychic Abilities
You must have of course been bombarded
with the names of various Psychic Abilities to have a bit of
Psychic-oriented- vocabulary by now, thanks to the ever-growing
influence of the television and the media. Our kids today rattle of
names like Psycho-kinesis, Telepathy, Astral Projection, Clairvoyance
etc. as easily as they munch their fries. But that is not to say that
our awareness about any of these abilities have been developing
holistically. Most of us use these terms, sadly enough, to appear
learned. Our attempt at this point is to wade through any such scholarly
pretence and to instead just acquaint ourselves with basic concepts.
Abilities are determined by the various chakras in our body. In all
there are about 7 chakras located around our spine. The work of the
chakras has often been compared to the aperture of a camera, the more
they open up the broader our view becomes. Although there are 7 chakras
in all not all of them are connected to gaining Psychic Awareness. In
the following section we will only be focusing on a few of those chakras,
which contribute, to our psychic abilities.
Let’s take the 2nd Chakra first. The
second Chakra allows us the potential of Clairsentient. This psychic
ability helps you feel things at a very personal level, much like Diana
Troy of the Star Trek series. Thus they are also sometimes referred to
as ‘Empaths’ in the sense that they are literally empathetic
individuals, they feel exactly what others experience.
The 5th chakra grants us the power of
Clairaudience or the potential to hear information. We always receive
various guiding notes by a certain ‘inner voice’ with in us; this
inner voice is essentially the information, which we receive at a
Clairvoyance is a rare Psychic capacity
to literally ‘see’ images in one’s own head. This unique power,
allowed by the 6th Chakra, has often been referred to as the ‘third
eye’, indicating the insight it allows us.
The 7th chakra grants us the power to
‘Know’. This power of ‘Knowing’ allows you a rather illogical
knowledge of things around you, without letting you in on the secret as
to how you know about them. The 7th chakra is located right at the top
of your head and thus the information it has access to is not allowed to
the other chakras in the other parts of the body. Conclusion
Any sort of Psychic Ability, whether
acquired or inherent is a gift, which must be exercised in, order to
keep it effective. A number of us are dissuaded even frightened to make
use of capacities, which we soon realize we possess. Being a Psychic or
possessing such abilities is not ‘inhuman’ but rather
‘extra-human’, if such a word may be allowed. All of us have Psychic
experiences. It is for us to recognize them and nurture them the way we
would nurture a talent in singing or dancing. Ultimately this is a
capacity, which allows us insight and a chance to help others, as well
as our own selves.
