Are Psychic Abilities Real? And How Do You Know if You Have Them?

Psychic abilities and psychic powers allow you to have perceptions beyond the physical body. They are part of the daily life of many. You will find countless references in books, movies and the internet for phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance, intuition and premonition, which are some types of non-physical (or extra-physical) perception. But how can you know if you have psychic abilities?

Many of us have thought about this question at some point in our lives. Maybe one day you find you have very clear intuition, another day you may experience déjà vú, or maybe you have experienced a lucid dream or even clairvoyance, possibly when you were younger.

How do we know if we are psychic?

So, after experiencing one or more of these things, how do you know if you have psychic abilities? The answer is really simple:

We are all psychic!

Some of us are more psychic than others. We all have different levels of natural psychic abilities, so we all possess the ability of being a proper psychic with the right training and techniques.

Psychic abilities are in fact a ‘kind of intelligence’; you learn them in the same way you learn how to play the piano or drive a car. You simply learn how to become psychic.

But it is important to understand there are people that have developed this intelligence much more than others; so, for them, it is simply a part of their lives. Others have an intention of further developing, increasing and/or controlling their abilities.

If you want to know if you already possess these types of abilities (or Parapsychic Intelligence), pay attention to occurrences as you go through life that might lead you to come to this conclusion.

Understanding Psychic Abilities

The first step is to understand the different ways that information can reach you. For instance, if you touch a metallic door knob you will get the sensation that it is cold. You perceive this via a physical sense.

On the other hand, have you ever been relaxing and felt a tingling sensation between your eyebrows that persists for more than a minute? It might have felt as if a feather was touching that area repeatedly when there was actually nothing physical touching that area. If so, then that might have been your psychic perception at work. In other words, you experienced a sensation that can’t be explained in physical terms. It was a non-physical body sensation that came from your energy body. The technical term is energosoma.

Another kind of psychic ability is the ability to see auras. We all have had the experience of looking at someone and being able to see the details of her face, hair, eyes, etc. This is the result of your eyes, brain, and all the physical parts of your body that are involved in physical sight.

If, however, you’ve also seen a bright envelope around the person which is about five centimeters thick along with brightness and colors around the head that extends up to 20 centimeters from the head, then this is psychic ability. You would be seeing her aura, something that is extra-physical and not accessible through your physical eyes.

You might wonder if this could simply be your imagination. The thing is, however, imagination is something you decide to put into work. It’s your will power at work. We can apply the same “tests” to differentiate physical and psychic perceptions.
In the metallic door knob example, you can ask yourself “am I imagining this psychic ability?” If after you verify this you continue to feel the coldness of the metal, then you know the physical perception is there.

In a psychic perception, you frequently need to be in a passive, receptive state, trying to “listen” or “receive” the perception without letting your expectation or will interfere. If you train this ability along with your physical perceptions, it will be easier for you to identify when you have a psychic perception.

Put your Psychic Abilities Through the Test:
10 Questions that Will Help You Assess Your Psychic Abilities
  1. Have you felt drained after meeting someone? Like you need to have a quick nap?
  2. Have you ever had a feeling that something is about to happen to someone around you only to find out it actually happened soon after?
  3. Have you ever visited a friend in his/her house (feeling great when arriving) but then left feeling really tired? (when there is no drinking or eating involved)
  4. Have you ever woken up remembering a very lucid dream or an out-of-body experience?
  5. Have you ever had a lucid out-of-body experience?
  6. How about clairvoyance? Have you ever had a flash and you were able to see other dimensions or people that have already passed away?
  7. Intuition: is it common to you? How relevant are your intuitions?
  8. Have you ever been able to predict the future?
  9. How about past events? Have you ever had a retrocognition or recollection of a previous life?
  10. Have you ever felt spontaneous vibration within your body when waking up or when falling asleep?
If you have answered ‘yes’ or agreed with any of these questions there are possibilities that you possess a good level of psychism, that’s how simple it is to tell if you possess psychic abilities.

    Hello Joy,

    I was so pleased to find you while searing the internet to learn more about the Goddess.
    The female God and her wisdom has been of great interest to me for the past 10 years and I have read the book by Merlin Stone “When God was a Woman”. I live in Seattle where there seems to be an abundance of left brained technology and healthcare industry obsessed persons with little or no such interest’s in matters such as this.

    It’s been a singular journey into the wisdom of the Goddess until now, my question is if you have any suggestions on documentaries that delve deeper into the Egyptian Goddess in particular that you may feel would be beneficial?

    Thank you for your wonder website.
