This is the first post in a while, so lets just jump right in. First, lets establish that there are a lot of people out in the world claiming to be psychics and mediums. That’s fine and good, but it is important to realize that not everyone has good intentions. Many self proclaimed psychics really are just normal people looking to make a profit off of the paranormal bubble that has grown over the past few years. While it is generally easy to spot phony psychics using simple logic tests, they are getting quite sophisticated and can easily fool someone new to the world of psychical research. With that said, what exactly are Psychics, Mediums, and Empaths?
A Psychic is any person showing (or having been said to possess) the ability to use ESP, or Extra Sensory Perception, to predict future events, discover information, or “tune” into other realities. A Psychic usually uses methods such as divination, tarot, or the so called “sixth sense” to reveal information to those who seek it.
A Medium is any person who acts as an intermediary between the physical world and the spiritual world. Mediums are often associated with the 20th century Spiritualist movement, although Mediumship has grown in recent years with the rise of the so called “New Age Movement.” Mediums can either possess the sometimes burdensome ability to see or detect spirits around them, or they may use specific meditation techniques to induce a state of trance so as to allow the spirit to communicate.
An Empath is any person whose nervous system is wired in such a way that they are highly sensitive to emotional energy, often to the point where the feeling becomes unbearable. Empaths often show strong sensitivity to other types of energy such as sunlight, electricity, and heat.
Let’s learn a bit more about each of these extraordinary types of people.
Are People Born With Psychic Abilities?
Paranormal researchers have shown that many young children between 6 months and 5 years exhibit psychic abilities, especially a very strong psychic bond with the mother. It is said that as the brain develops, either normal biological development or societal conditioning cause the psychic abilities of the child to recede until they are no longer present. Obviously, this is not always the case. No matter the case, it can be said that many of us are born with psychic abilities, but through the conditioning of our parents, teachers, and other role models, we slowly develop into psychically devoid humans. Not everyone experiences this recession of abilities. Some people are encouraged to explore their abilities and develop them; others simply were not conditioned enough to let go of the brain structure that promotes psychic ability.
How Do Psychics Predict The Future?
This question is somewhat misleading. No psychic predicts the absolute future, as there is no such thing. Psychics are able to tap into that millisecond before all universal possibilities collapse into the one that will actually occur. In other words, Psychics can only give you one possible future. As a human being, you have the ability to choose your paths and make decisions, all of which are guaranteed to change the psychic’s prediction. This does not mean that the psychic was inaccurate, simply that your own actions changed the course of events.
Some psychics use methods such as divination or tarot to attempt to predict future events. The basic method for this is to concentrate all of one’s energy into the device, therefore causing the device to react.
Can Psychics See The Past?
Psychics that are also sensitive to emotional energy may find it easy to see what may have happened in a building or to an object many years ago. Humans release emotional energy all the time, but that energy is much greater when a traumatic event occurs. This emotional recording of the event is stored in whatever environment or object just happens to be there at the time. Psychics may be able to tap into this stored energy and “play back” the event.
Viewing past events without the use of emotional energy may be somewhat difficult. To view the past, one must first assume that it is stored in some universal variable, and not simply destroyed as each second passes. Some say that time repeats itself in a never ending loop, but this is unsubstantiated at this time.
So Mediums Are Sort Of Like That Kid From “The Sixth Sense?”
Not necessarily. Not all Mediums can physically see spirits. Most Mediums do display Clairsentience, which is the sensing of spirit presence. However in order to truly see a spirit, environmental conditions must be ideal. This is why it is much harder to see a ghost during the day. The sun’s energy overpowers the energy of the spirit.
Why Aren’t Mediums and Psychics Used More Extensively In Paranormal Research?
The answer is simple. It is almost impossible to quantify a psychic or medium’s experiences. There is no way to gather evidence and no way to substantiate it. As a research group, the DAPRS is actively attempting to obtain credibility for the field of paranormal research within the scientific community. Until there is a way to definitively record psychic and medium data, we simply cannot enter their experiences as evidence.
Is It Hard To Be An Empath?
This, like many things, is dependent on a person’s comfort level. Everyone shows empathy. It is a basic requirement for compassion and inside every decent human on the planet. The problems start occurring when you exhibit higher sensitivity to these feelings. Empaths generally “feel” another’s pain, sorrow, anger, or disgust as if it was their own feeling. This can also work in the spiritual sense, as they may be able to feel a spirits emotional state.
