    I believe many people are born with it, but it is 'beaten' out of them at an early age.  For example, when you may know who is on the phone before your parents answer, or know where they hid the gifts.  And when people don't believe you and then attribute nefarious actions as to how you know.

    I dream of places I later visit, I can read people in a few seconds, and some times react although the event happen.  But I usually keep it to myself.

      A lot od people believe these abilities are evil, too. Growing up I was taught sharpening these abilities involved the assistance of "evil spirits."

    It really is absurd for anyone to claim "we" have psychic abilities or ascertain an answer if "we" means all people because even if we had a conclusive way of testing, and we don't, there is no way we could examine every living human being. To even discuss this subject intelligently we must define exactly what is meant by the asker of the question when she says psychic abilities and if by "we" she means not all people but possibly some people, then perhaps there is a possibility to ascertain an answer.This is a list of psychic abilities.
        Apportation - Materialization, disappearance or teleportation of an object.
        Aura reading - Perception of energy fields surrounding people, places and things.
        Automatic writing - Writing produced without conscious thought.
        Astral projection or mental projection - An out-of-body experience in which an "astral body" becomes separate from the physical body.
        Bilocation or multilocation - Being in multiple places at the same time.
        Clairvoyance or second sight - Perception outside the known human senses.
        Death-warning - A vision of a living person prior to his or her death.
        Divination - Gaining insight into a situation, most commonly through a ritual.
        Dowsing - Ability to locate objects, sometimes using a tool called a dowsing rod.   
        Energy medicine - Healing by channeling a form of energy.
        Faith healing - Diagnosing and/or curing diseases using religious devotion.
        Mediumship or channeling – Communicating with spirits.
        Precognition, premonition and precognitive dreams - Perception of events before they happen.
        Psychic surgery - Removal of diseased body tissue via an incision that heals immediately afterwards.
        Psychokinesis or telekinesis - The ability to manipulate objects by the power of thought.
        Psychometry or psychoscopy - Obtaining information about a person or object, usually by touching or concentrating on the object or a related object.
        Pyrokinesis - Manipulation of fire.
        Remote viewing - Gathering of information at a distance.
        Retrocognition or post-cognition - Perception of past events.
        Scrying - Use of an item to view events at a distance and/or in the future.
        Telepathy - Transfer of thoughts or emotions in either direction.
        Transvection - Bodily levitation and flying.

    There is NO evidence to date that psychic abilities exist, and they are not recognized by the scientific community. Unexplained phenomena are evidence of nothing

      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!

    We all have abilities, psychic and beyond, which religion insists we suppress by calling them wicked or evil, which they are not. They are spiritual and when we enhance our spiritual ability we also enhance our spiritual power. True magic is not magical, nor is the ability to practice true magic. It is simply the ability to use our natural spiritual ability to any the purpose we desire. The power is not evil. The purpose for which it is used may be good or evil, but that is down to the one using it. Use it for good.

      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

    Only those who are open to their intuition and willing to follow hunches and listen to their inner voice can experience their own psychic abilities. 

    By way of illustration tsadjatko is certain that such things have never been proven; I would guess that TS has rejected any intuitions he//she may have felt in favor of logical deduction.

    Regarding tsadjatko's assertion that no evidence of parapsychology exists, in actuality, research has gone on at Duke University, now the Rhine Center, since the 1930's.  This research has proven certain individuals do have precognition. The Soviet Union spent years studying parapsychology and the CIA and police departments across the nation regularly employ psychics to gain insight into enemy activities and to solve murder mysteries respectively. As Kruth of the Rhine Center said,  "The skeptics who say we have an evidence problem -- they're not reading the evidence."

      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

    Why not? We are made in the image of Spirit. The lives of some of the most powerful of Christian saints, let alone Jesus, were very mystical ones. The sole purpose of the Soul is to find it's way back to the Godhead, and on its way it will inevitably run into much of God's power or Light.
