What is psychic ability? A question many people ask, but few have openly answered. For a long time, psychic ability has been a very controversial topic. This is because it is one of the wonders of the world that we are unable to physically see or explain. Many people are critical towards those who claim to have psychic ability, chalking it up as lucky guesses or con artistry. People become skeptical because they themselves are unable to acquire such a unique power such as psychic ability. I'm sure you'll be happy to know that literally anyone is able to practice and open their own psychic abilities!
I am very happy that with the current abundance of information we have access to via the internet and libraries, people have the opportunity to educate themselves on topics such as psychic ability. I have also noticed that society overall has more recently become very interested in spirituality, the third eye and the psychic abilities that come with it. All are topics that have been discussed and agreed upon by those spiritually in-tune for thousands of years.
So what exactly is psychic ability? Well its actually a general term covering a large basis of abilities. These abilities all stemming from the benefits of opening the third eye. What is the third eye, you ask? It is the energy center in our body that is located in the center of our forehead between our eyebrows. To learn more about the third eye and how to feel and open yours, check out the page called Third Eye Chakra Meditation. By opening the third eye chakra, we are given access to what is referred to as a sixth sense. This sixth sense allows us to receive knowledge, or even hear, see and feel things that most other people aren't able to experience. Let's look at a list of the psychic abilities that come from opening the third eye chakra.
Premonition - Having premonitions is when a person is able to see things that will happen in the future. This can be as simple as knowing you will be receiving a phone call from someone, or as extreme as knowing when and how someone will die.
Pre-cognition - This is when a person is able to recall past events, even if they have never been given previous knowledge of the event happening.
Seeing Auras - Every person has an aura of energy surrounding their physical body. This aura can tell a lot about a persons current emotion and thoughts by the size and color of the aura. When just beginning to open the third eye, this is one of the easier ones to start to see. However, the more you practice, the better it gets. I remember a time I was focusing on seeing auras and had a job interview. During the interview, I answered a question and saw the woman's aura burst large and blue around her. At that moment, I knew I landed the job and sure enough, I did.
Astral Projection - This is when we leave our physical body and are able to control ourselves as our spirit. During astral projection, you are connected to the spirit realm, and although you can travel around earth, you can also travel to other planes of existence and even into space. You will be able to experience other spirits, both good and bad. Do plenty of research before exploring this possibility.
Paranormal - A very common psychic ability is the ability to experience the paranormal. This includes spirits that can be good or bad. That can also be of animals, people who have passed, or entities that are in the spirit world. Some people are able to actually see the paranormal clairvoyantly, but other occurrences could be through hearing, smelling, sensing or even feeling.
Intuition - The ability to understand things by a feeling without proof. If you have ever had a gut feeling about something, and just knew it was either wrong or right, but didn't know why, that was your intuition. By focusing on opening the third eye chakra, we are able to train ourselves to have many intuitive feelings.
Channeling - Another very common psychic ability is channeling. This is when a person is able to speak with spirit guides, or a specific person from the spirit world and receive knowledge from that spirit or entity.
Energy Healing - Everything in the world is made up of energy. Using energy to heal yourself or others has been practiced for thousands of years and is still done successfully today. Energy healers are able to transfer this energy usually through their palms and with the power of intention to heal physical ailments and illnesses.
Psychometry - This is the practice of using an object that has been touched or associated with another person to gain information about that person. This can also be done with an object to gain information about another object in relation.
Scrying - The practice of using an item to foresee events that will happen in the future. Most commonly used with a crystal ball or obsidian crystal.
Telekinesis - This psychic ability is the practice of moving other physical objects with the power of intention and energy manipulation.
Telepathy - This is the process of transferring knowledge or ideas to others through the power of thought. People have been known to telepathically transfer knowledge to others all around the world. It is similar to the power of the internet, transferring data wirelessly, but done with the use of our thoughts and psychic ability.
Blind Sight - This is the psychic ability to receive visualizations of the real world without having to actually see them with our physical eyes. Here is a video of a young girl who was trained to master this practice on YouTube.
All of these psychic abilities can be learned by absolutely anyone, but it takes a lot of time and practice to truly master even one of these abilities that are listed above. There are many people in the world who dedicate their lives to perfecting these skills and use their ability to help others, whether it be about love and relationships, success and finance, or even just to find out the truth about a particular situation.

Psychic ability is something that has been practiced by my family for at least a few generations, more so on my moms side. When I was very young, my grandmother used to play games with me to help me train my psychic abilities. Should would play games where she would think of a number or color and taught me to clear my mind and focus on receiving the thought so I would know the answer. At first, I would get it right every so often, but over the years, I began to get very good at this game to the point where it was rare that I would get one wrong. This strengthening was fun to do, but it also opened me up to experiencing the paranormal world at a young age. I am now aware that you can shut off the aspect of experiencing the paranormal while still being good at telepathy and intuition, but at the time I was receiving the full package. I was able to sense when there was a presence around me. It feels like you're being watched, or something is closely around you, but you cant see it. I was also able to see spirits for short periods of time and hear things like my name being called. As a child, this was frightening and eventually I had an experience with something bad that I was able to hear and see that rushed towards me and I physically felt it hit into me and go through my body. This experience was horrifying and I jumped up screaming and ran to my mother to explain what happened. She had me get on the phone with my grandmother and I told her I no longer wanted to experience these types of things. She first taught me how to protect myself from these types of spirits, but told me if I really no longer wanted to deal with them, I could shut it off completely by making it my intention to no longer have these experiences. I stopped experiencing the paranormal from that day on for years.
When I was about 19 years old, I regained my curiosity about the paranormal and other psychic abilities. I did a lot of research and decided I would like to experience the paranormal again, just to make sure it wasn't just my young imagination at the time. I learned to focus on my third eye chakra, and started practicing. Nothing happened for a few days, but that period of silence was short lived. I was in my room late at night, not even focusing on the paranormal or anything when I randomly decided to stand up and go to the kitchen. As I reached the living room, I got the feeling that there was something there. It was that same feeling of being watched that I used to get as a young kid, but it didn't feel bad and I didn't feel threatened. I walked to the fridge and opened it up and stared blankly into it. The feeling was very strong and I knew there was something else there and it was all I could think about. I remember thinking to myself, "If there is something there, do something to show me you're here." As I stared into the fridge, a 2-liter bottle of soda that had not moved for hours rolled from one side of the shelf to the other! I smiled and shut the door and returned to my room. I didn't feel threatened by it and was very satisfied with what I had just harmlessly experienced. I now know that this ability is something that can be turned on or shut off by choice. I usually keep it off, but know the possibility is always there.
Psychic ability is obtained by opening up the third eye chakra, but if you are interested in learning more about the benefits of all of the chakras, check out the Chakra Meditation page.
