A Psychic Phenomenon ESP by The St. Augustine Mystic Laura Schwalm-Anthony

ESP is the ability to obtain information about the environment beyond our five senses – sight, sound, taste, hearing and feeling. ESP is known as having extra sensory perception. It primarily works through body sensations, feelings and emotions rather than thought.

ESP falls into the psychic categories of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychometry, and tactic knowing. Clairvoyance is when one is able to see objects, people, or events in their “inner minds eye”, also known as third eye.

Precognition is the ability to see past and/or future events.

Psychometry is the ability to extract information from an object through touching it, and Tactic Knowing or Knowing is the proverbial inner light bulb.

Most everyone has experienced ESP and everyone has the ability to tap into this psychic gift. There are many exercises and modalities, which one can use to develop their ESP.

One popular method is zener cards. Zener cards are a deck of 25 cards, which have five different symbols. They are used by two people. One person chooses a card from the deck and transmutes the image out to the other person, known as the receiver. The receiver in simple terms guesses the card symbol which was transmuted out from the sender.

Meditation is also very helpful in the development of ESP, because it teaches one to work through their mind chatter and all the physical and emotional tension which goes along with it. Meditation is the best tool which we can use use to access the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is how we create matter and energy, and it is through this energy which we can acquire information.

ESP, or extrasensory perception goes hand-in-hand with some of the discoveries made through astronomy and quantum physics, which explain to us that the human mind is parallel with the Universe. We as humans, have the ability to sense things beyond our normal physical senses. Many of us have ESP experiences without realizing it. For example, have you ever had a dream or sensed that something was about to happen, then that very scenario takes place? This is a form of ESP. What’s going on is that your subconscious mind is picking up the energy of other people, places or situations. The mind not only can pick up energy from one person or thing to another, but it can also transcend onto several other people. In other words, we have the ability to process unsaid words and actions through our subconscious minds, and that energy can spread on to thousands upon thousands of others.

The term ESP was popularized and coined by a J.B. Rhine (Joseph Banks Rhine). He was widely known as “The Father of Modern Parapsychology”. Along with his wife Dr. Louisa E Rhine studied the phenomena now known as parapsychology.

Scientists have struggled with fully understanding how ESP works, because most of the evidence about ESP is anecdotal. The anecdotal consists of two parts, the experience itself and the interpretation of it. Meaning the story of an ESP episode may be true, but the attempt to make sense of it or give psychic meaning to it, seems to exceed the boundaries of reason.

Never the less, science is still fascinated enough to continue doing research.

Although several people believe that only trained psychics can experience ESP, there has been several stories noted throughout history that indicate that average individuals all the around world have experienced ESP in a variety of different ways. It’s also been said that we all have the ability and resources to be psychic, because we all have a spirit and a deity part of self.

ESP is built on the knowledge that all human beings can perceive things beyond the scope of known bodily senses. Highly sensitive people and empaths usually are able to utilize the psychic gift of ESP for healing purposes.

It is important to know that the human mind blocks out over 90% of information which it receives on a daily basis. By developing the innate psychic ability of ESP, individuals increase their own psychic abilities, such as: razor sharp intuition, increased gut feelings, opened third eye and knowing, the ability to just know things.

Having these abilities allows individuals to tune into their own inner guidance so they can access solutions to their life problems regarding finances, relationships, and souls purpose.

Thank you for reading! And until next time “Be true to yourself”
