A lot od people believe these abilities are evil, too. Growing up I was taught sharpening these abilities involved the assistance of "evil spirits."
Good point. Follow your gut instinct and listen to your inner voice along with meditating regularly to unclutter your mind so you can hear that inner voice more clearly
Then explain this the best evidence to date against the existence of ESP.
I've had some personal experiences myself, Bisop55, especially when I started meditating regularly.
Everyone has had experiences. Unexplained experiences or phenomena aren't proof of psychic ability - everything that you call experiences can have explanations more reasonable or plausable than jumping to the conclusion we all have psychic abilities
ts, just because it has not yet been "verified" by the scientific community does not mean it is not real. there is no explanation as to how to some people just "know" things before they happen. Also, you seem to think your opinion is fact.
I never said it was not real - my view is that there is absolutely no proof that so called "psychic" phenomena are an innate ability. As I said without proof that they eminate from the brain there could be many other plausible explanations.
Psychic abilities go back to ancient cultures. Highly cultivated in ancient Egypt, Greece, Babylonia, Asia even native America. Sometimes under the banner of magick. Its mostly mind powers. If you have a mind, you have the power. A little research.
You can say whatever you want, it doesn't make it the truth. The question is, whatever the psychic phenomena does it come from or is it created by the human mind? It could be the result of supernatural activity & not the mind, but neither is prov
You may have to demonstrate it to believe it. The world has those who don't know, those who know and those who live it every day. The effort by the Church and Gov is to keep the power unknown. They fear losing control over people. Ridicule the tool.
Seems the world also has those who are gullible enough to believe anything they want to without proof or even consideration of all possible explanations.
You may be in the category of those who don't know. Nothing wrong with that. If you do the research, you may become more informed. Have a good one! Cheers!
Nothing wrong with looking into things for yourself and looking at them from all angles.
People & govmt spent decades searching for ESP. The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research group spent nearly three decades searching for psychic ability, usually getting mixed and inconclusive results&never found hard scientific evidence f
I can see how when you're stressed out it can go away, when you so much going on in your mind it could block that connectedness.
That's what I was taught growing up, that those abilities were evil..
If you believe the Bible many so called "psychic abilities" have an evil source while others like the prohetic dreams (Joseph and Mary had) have angelic sources, but these were not innate mental abilities that they possessed. The cause was spiritual
Very true...."intuition" is a more accurate way to describe it. This is why meditation helps because it quiets your mind so you're mora able touch base with those feelings.
Bk42........Very well said and we're on the same "wave length!" LOL
I agree fpherj48 with your analysis. As you say these are not "psychic abilities" as I defined them but could be atributed to the normal variation of brain function in humans. We are only beginning to understand the brain & have long way to go.
There were several times in the past I ignored those gut feelings & regretted it. At the time I chalked it up to being paranoid because, I felt there was no logical reason to feel that way. As it turned out, that 6th sense was correct.
I can see why you believe we're all connected on some"quantum"(by that you mean infinitesimal?)level as we are all basically the same but then does that "connection"extend to all living things,does it include the material world or the supernatural?
Agreed? We are nothing but dust, divided or combined, and magic has nothing to do with the universe which is guided by laws and principles and totally in the control of the creator. And how is Unknown ink's answer an answer in anyway to the question?
In other words we're all connected spiritually, therefore we do have a psychic connection to one another. Not denying the Creator is in control of course he is. Agreed because this is what I believe.
I'll buy that but Unknown didn't say anything referencing spirtuality - magic isn't spirituality. But you have a point, if psychic ability is due to anything I would agree it is spiritual which means it is not a mental capability that everyone has.
Not only brushing it off but also second guessing your gut feelings that keeps you from sharpening these skills.
I've had those experiences, too. I've heard that we all have some ability and that we can develop them more meditation & such.
Yes. Most certainly, BK. However, I sat at the feet of a God-man for 31 years and he did not encourage it. Neither did Sri Ramakrishna nor any Spiritual Master worth his salt that I know of. It is fraught with danger and may delay your progress.
I do believe most people have psychic abilities. Like when we feel somebody is looking at you, and you look up and they are. Your eyes did not see them you felt it. Or you feel the presence
of somebody or something but there is nobody there.
