Do you sometimes have a premonition that something bad will happen which later turns out to be right? Do you sometimes suddenly come to know of how another person is feeling or what he/she is thinking of? If yes, then chances are that you are a psychic, rather than these incidences being just normal coincidences. I once knew of someone who could close her eyes and concentrate for sometime to see her mother working in the kitchen from a thousand miles away, and its just not her, there are many such people in the world who have such psychic powers.
Psychic power refers to the ability of perceiving information from one's surroundings which are otherwise hidden from the five sensory organs. Thus, a person can be termed a psychic if he/she has the special ability to see, hear, feel or know certain things which other people cannot. Commonly known as extra sensory perception, psychic powers are believed to be born with or developed after a tragic near death experience or a major event in a person's life which might have turned him towards a spiritual lane. Whatever might be its origin, it has a profound impact on the person's life being perceived as either a special gift or a curse.
Various different types of psychic powers exists in the world, the most common being the power to foresee future events, power to read another person's thoughts or the ability to see things which are otherwise hidden or occurring far away. Thus, precognition, telepathy and clairvoyance are the three most common psychic powers respectively.
In case of telepathy, the psychic is able to know what is going on in another person's mind or what he is feeling. This power varies from a level of mere knowing what he feels or wants to do, to an advanced level where the psychic can infuse his own thoughts into the his mind.
If you have the special ability to see things which are hidden or are occurring at a distance then you have the psychic power of clairvoyance. A clairvoyant person is capable of remote viewing of things, events or persons which are thousands of miles away. In contrast to remote viewing, if a person can hear or know about things which are otherwise hidden, the psychic powers are termed clairaudience and clairsentience respectively.
Precognition on the other hand refers to the psychic power to foresee future events and predicting the same. Since human beings have an innate desire to know about his/her future, this psychic power is the most popular and psychics possessing this are in great demand.
The existence of other psychic powers though less common than the three mentioned above, can be seen throughout the world. These include channeling, your ability to establish contact and communicate with spirits or outside intelligence; astral projection, your ability to leave your own body and travel in spirit to another place; aura reading, your ability to read or perceive the energy fields of another person; levitation, your ability to ascend to a level off the ground or psychokinesis, your ability to move things with the power of your thoughts.
Lastly, in the aftermath of this discussion it must be concluded that whatever psychic power one possesses should always be though of as a special gift and developed and improved upon responsibly to help fellow human beings.
