Have you ever felt that you can almost hear what a person is thinking of while sitting beside you, or may be that you suddenly have very strong and sudden gut feelings of something happening before doing something or going anywhere which later turns out to be right? And if I my guess is right then you have always thought them to be sheer coincidences in your life. And now that you are reading this article, I can safely conclude that somewhere you have doubts in your mind about these experiences and it might well be the case that you are a psychic having specific psychic powers.
Psychic powers can be defined as those special abilities in a person which enables him/her to know about things which another person cannot perceive. Thus, it is an extra sensory perception that tells the person about things that our five ordinary senses cannot detect. Generally psychics are born with this sixth sense, but it may also happen that this ability develops in a person after a very tragic event or a near death experience.
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.
Clairvoyance on the other hand involves 'clear viewing' of events which are otherwise hidden or occurring far away. Also known as 'Remote Viewing' this power leads to seeing a loved one or seeing an object or a place and getting information about the same from thousands of miles away. It must be mentioned here that clairvoyance has a subtle difference with that of the highly similar psychic powers of clairaudience and clairsentience. While the former refers to 'hearing' stuffs far away, the latter involves 'knowing' certain things which are otherwise hidden or forgotten.
Precognition is the ability to foresee future events. As human beings have a great desire to know about their future, this type psychic power is the most popular.
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.
If you are a psychic, chances are that you take yourself to be either gifted or cursed. Always remember that psychic powers are extremely rare and are special abilities that not many people are born with. Hence, consider it as a blessing and try to make it come useful for the betterment of others.
